Looks like Merkel is going to continue pussyfooting around with Russia. Her advisors have millions invested in Russian ventures. I'm sure that's not a coincidence at all.

At a certain point, the citizens of these European countries better get pissy that their leadership refuses to do shiat about this nonsense.

Chuck Norris tried to roundhouse kick Putin once...Putin snatched his chest hair out and made him wear a dress. True story.

Another victory for The Shirtless Global Chessmaster!  While Putin plays chess in space with bears and lasers and stuff, the weak and feckless Obozo weakly and fecklessly festoons himself in mom jeans!

Why?  Putin is backing himself even further into a corner.  Why should European governments try to stop him.  Let Putin solve the problems he created for himself.

Putin: What do you mean, "I'm still here?"
Medvedev: So, the weather in Moscow sure is nice today.
Putin: What did you mean Dmitry, "I'm still here?!"
Medvedev: I think this weekend we'll go to the lake.
Putin: What aren't you telling me Dmitry?
Medvedev: Well, gotta go. Gotta take a call.
Putin: What call? From who?
Medvedev: Bye now.

Because his "solution" will be to roll into Ukraine and a few other ex-SSR satellites with a sickle in one hand and a hammer in the other?

This guy doesn't give a shiat about what the Europeans or U.S. wants and he won't stop unless they make him. As far as he's concerned his country's future is in the East anyway.

Because the whole point of this is that Russia pays with a Russian economy that has gone to shiat. That doesn't happen if absolutely nothing changes with his biggest trade partners. I agree absolutely that Ukraine is a potential quagmire, but I can't believe the citizens of the countries that just had their citizens blown out of the sky by Russian equipment operated by Russia's proxy army are going to allow their elected governments to just sit there and do nothing about it.

So nothing will happen. But what if Dutch and Australian Special Forces are dropped into the area seeking justice? Would anyone actually do anything about that other than the rebels?

You play with fire and you get your fingers burned.

Now his fingers are burned and dispute all the bravado on display by Putin this strings. They now realize that despite their favorite condemnation of GWB as a "cowboy" it is they who now look like said cowboy. So even though this is unlikely to change much on the ground its remains a rhetorical and perceptual blow.

Because we're not pussyfooting around too. Oh, no. Nuh uh.

Realistically, nobody's going to do anything to Putin. We only intervene when there's oil there, and an easily-toppled government we can push out of the way to get to it.

Sarah Palin said this:

"Look, the perception of Obama, of him and his potency across the world is one of such weakness ... People are looking at Putin as one who wrestles bears and drills for oil. They look at our president as one who wears mom jeans and equivocates and bloviates."

I think the right solution the this problem involves a small black operation, and a polonium pellet.  When's Putin's next trip to London?

"Putin ... is what you call a leader": Rudolph Giuliani, a Republican who isn't even as out-there as the tea party folks, calling them "respectable", but "a little crazy"

War never changes.

Actually Fallout 4 is in development. There hasn't been an official announcement and they're refusing to hint at a release date, but it's coming at some point.

It's taking FAR too long, of course. I think part of the delay has to do with them wanting to make it for the new-gen consoles. At any rate, while I wish it were available already, I guess I also don't mind them taking the necessary time in development if that means the game, when it finally releases, is so awesome.

A regional brouhaha in a world of globally interconnected economies linked by trade agreements instead of self-defense pacts?

Surely you jest.
