Obama response to Ukraine

What is happening in the Ukraine right now is nothing more than old style Soviet aggression, but the worst part of it is President Obama's incredibly weak statement on the entire crisis. It is as if it doesn't even matter to the president, almost like it has no consequences for more Soviet expansion and intrusion into a country that is no longer under their control.

Obama arrogantly tries to tell Putin what is in the best interest of Russia when he can hardly do what is in the best interest of the United States.

Read the transcript of what journalist Charles Krauthammer has to say about the absolute weakness of Obama's statement to Putin on his invasion of the Ukraine and then see the video after that. It is staggering how far we have come and how utterly weak America appears on the world stage just since Obama has become president.

“The Ukrainians, and I think everybody, is shocked by the weakness of Obama’s statement. What he’s saying is, we’re not really going to do anything. He said, any violation of Ukrainian territory is destabilizing, and that’s not in Russia’s interest. He is instructing Putin on what’s in Russia’s interest?

I can assure you, Putin has calculated his own interests … that detaching Crimea from Ukraine and making it, essentially, a colony of Russia, is in Russia’s interest. [H]e knows he has nothing to fear from the West, because it’s not led by anybody. It used to be led by the United States.”
