For the sake of all our young men and women I hope and pray that this conflict will be resolved without having to answer your question.

If the USA did the same thing, it would be called a humanitarian effort, but since it is Russia, it's called an act of war and vice versa, depending on which country you live in. Give it time, it is no more than show ponies and saber rattling. Somewhere between now and the end of the conflict some serious money will be made from it by one side or both.

Obumer may come out better.........unlike Putin, he has the ability to change the law instead of breaking it...........look at how many times it's happened with the Obummer Care law alone.

Seems some serious money is already being made. We're sending a billion dollars in aid to Ukraine. I guess Obummer borrowed that from China.

Obama has shown himself to be pretty incompetent. Putin outfoxed him easily on Syria. And Obama didnt see the Ukraine crisis coming (even though everybody else seems to have).

Putin was ready to capitalize on the Unkraine situation, while Obama golfed and went on vacations and did nothig ahead of time. And now we are seeing him trying to look "Presidential" with his hard line stance.

He is once again painting himself (and us) into a corner with short sighted policies and no escape routes.

Maybe somebody smarter than him will make a door for him to get out (like Putin did with the Syria crisis). If not, then I think this is a very different situation for us all.

Obama is forging a sanctions policy in response to the armed invasion of the Crimea by Russian armed men. But, things have changed since then.

The Crimean Parliament (with majority backing from the Crimean people) has scheduled elections to vote on Crimean seceding from Ukraine and legally joining back into Russia.

If, for example, the Crimean people vote in this weeks upcomming elections, to leave the Ukraine and join Russia (as they probably will), what then?

Will Obama take us into a war with a nuclear power (Russia), just to suppress the will of the Crimean people, and force them to stay part of Ukraine, even though they dont want to?

Is that how he upholds "Democracy"?

And so, with this election tactic, Putin has outfoxed Obama again, who apparently didnt see this one coming either.

Its kind of a loosing situation from a moral and legal standpoint. Putin has outfoxed Obama again. In the end, Obama cant hardly find any good excuse to go to war just to suppress the will of the Crimean people.

Putin has the moral high ground here, and Obama is simply reacting to the situation of a month ago, before the Crimean elections were scheduled, and before the Crimean Parliament voted to schedule them.

Obamas reaction is behind the times (as per usual) and he hasnt stayed on top of the changing situation with regards to his sanctions policy.

So now Obama will possibly have to go further with the misguided sanctions policy ( possibly even collapsing the world economy), or maybe even to war with Russia, and all in order to suppress the will of the Crimean people,... or let it go and loose face.

Hes probably too arrogant to loose face, so what will he do now?

I think team Obama is secretly hoping that somebody smart will form them an escape door, like they did on Syria. I just hope Obama dont listen to idiots like Senators McCain (Arizona) and Bob Corker (Tennessee). They have all the wrong answers.

So, Obama is painted in a corner, and his opponents have the moral and legal high ground, and our allies are defecting from us. A loosing situation, as per usual, from this incompetent President.
