He can give up his dreams of power. Disarm and start building a nation based on the rule of law. Or he can resign and tend his rose garden.

Easy. Humiliate Obama, and make him run with his tail between his legs.
Obama is a coward deathly afraid of being made to look like he’s lost, so he will run at the slightest hint of conflict. Putin the thug knows this.

The article very well lays out the risks. What are the benefits of the US aiding an oligarch owned economically and politically corrupt country of very little consequence to the US?

Absolutely nothing new here.

Greece! That’s like picking up a hitch-hiker, and calling him your colleague in your new fake business.

They are simply feral animals that care nothing about the complete destruction of all life on Earth.

Time to fill in the Pentagon shaped black hole that is threatening to suck all life into the abyss.

If we did nothing, than Russia would feel compelled to push forward. They fully expect us to respond militarily, in their mind that is rational. Why wouldn’t we? By being inactive, the US was confusing the situation. It was not logical in their view. The Russian propoganda calls these provocative actions but they know we had to do something.

The territory was insignificant to begin with. It’s not 1924. Wars among the smart nations are electronic and economic now. You don’t need some muddy “buffer zone” near Poland any more. Putin did this to send a message, and the message he ended up sending is: He doesn’t know what he’s doing. He is ruining his economy over a nothing spot and the world is laughing at him.

What a shame noble peace-prize awarded to current president while he backs these spineless fomenting of conflicts that have caused to-date, over a million deaths/injuries/displacements around Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Ukraine and neighboring countries – at the expense of over a trillion dollars of US tax payer money that depleted the nation’s competitiveness and robbed the future of next-generation. What a load of incompetence and lack of morality.
