He's been calling a ceasefire for at least two months.

Only, his idea of a ceasefire is when the Ukrainian military doesn't shoot at the rebels, while the rebels re-arm with armaments and "volunteers" from Russia and continue shooting at the Ukrainian military. That's what happened when the last ceasefire was announced by Ukraine's Poroshenko. Separatists violated that "ceasefire" 120 times.

Looks like someone just figured out they are losing and wants to preserve the status quo.

Fun Fact:  the strict translation of "ceasefire" in Russian is "stop hitting yourself."

Putin: "Can we please have a ceasefire so that the dumbfarks that I was stupid enough to give incredibly powerful anti-aircraft missiles don't go and shoot down another damn airliner and make me look like even more of an @sshole than I already do?"

It must now be obvious to him that the Ukrainians have better SAM capabilities than previously thought

Well, gee, Vladimir - that's a terrific idea! Let's do that!

2014-07-18 07:31:42 PM  
That's nuts.  Obozo would just blow this opportunity.

I'll let esteemed Fox News Security Expert KT McFarland sum up the situation:

The fact is Obama seemed headed for an attack on Syria that no one wanted and few thought would succeed.  Most thought it would only end in disaster, either with the U.S. drawn into an attack/retaliation cycle of escalation that could go on for years and spread into a regional war, or result in the overthrow of President Assad by an Al Qaeda affiliated rebels.
While the Russians may have toyed with the idea of letting American get bogged down in yet another losing Middle East war, they didn't want to risk a war that might pull them in, or lose control of the Assad government to radical Sunni jihadists.
So Putin stepped in and threw Obama a lifeline.
 [...]
The Washington press corps will no doubt believe him, as usual, and lavish their usual praise.

But the world knows that Vladimir Putin is the one who really deserves that Nobel Peace Prize.

Obama needs to be kissing Putin's firm, well-toned butt.  This Global Chessmaster is the only one we can trust.  Not the liar in chief.

I'll let Rush Limbaugh, well-respected analyst of world affairs and Dominican boy enthusiast lay it all out:

"Vladimir Putin ought to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, Putin ought to be addressing the American people tonight on TV, not Obama."
"Putin, again, has beaten Obama. There's no two ways about that, Putin comes out the big winner."

Sure... that's why Putin is getting weaker and weaker while the US position strengthens.

It was just surreal around that time seeing Republicans praising the President of Russia -- of  Russia!-- over the President of the United States.

but even at the time, a serious analysis of the situation should have shown anyone that Putin had made a serious mistake, and whatever short-term gain he got by taking Crimea is far outweighed by the long-term mess he has gotten Russia into.

"While his stance as a defender of traditional values has drawn the mockery of Western media and cultural elites, Putin is not wrong in saying that he can speak for much of mankind."  -Pat Buchanan

GRABOVO, Ukraine - Incongruously, given that the plane fell from more than 30,000 feet, many of the bodies strewn about in the smoldering wreckage of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 were largely intact. A woman in a black sweater lay on her back, blood streaming from her face, her left arm raised as if signaling someone. Another victim, naked except for a black bra, lay on the field, her gray hair mixing with the green grass, one leg broken and her body torn.

"There was a howling noise and everything started to rattle. Then objects started falling out of the sky," the 65-year-old pensioner said in front of her grey-brick home.
"And then I heard a roar and she landed in the kitchen, the roof was broken," she said, showing the gaping hole made by the body when it came through the ceiling of the kitchen in an extension to the house.
The dead woman's naked body was still lying inside the house, next to a bed.


Great work, Pat.  I get it that you hate Obozo, but praising what was clearly a bad man was always going to end badly for you.

How many Republicans were rooting for Khrushchev during the Cuban Missile Crisis?

This shows that Putin's simply a bully. Despite popular belief, bullies don't have too little confidence, they have too much confidence. As soon as their victim stands up to them, their confidence goes away.

FTA : "It is with great concern and sadness that we are watching what is happening in eastern Ukraine. It's awful, it's a tragedy," Putin added.

Yeah, but did you see this picture of greasy Putin in the article? They never would have run with that way back ... about 2 months ago.

Nevermind, I should have said a week ago, or 4 days ago or something. Nevertheless, on Fox he'll be back in his fishing and hunting gear, rifle in hand in short time I suspect.
