The seizure of Crimea was meant as a challenge to the European Union. It is meant to prove that European values cannot defend themselves.
If Russia swallows Ukraine, the European system is finished

The West has the power to make Putin regret his Ukraine adventure, but does it have the will?

Putin will now hold position, watch the west dance around like chickens with their heads cut off, and then wait for the right moment to continue with his plans.
putin looks for weakness.......and then he takes advantage of weakness when the time is right.

Putin maybe a lot of evil things but he knows how to get sheet done. Namely, he knows how to win against the west particularly when America is projecting weakness. The US learned after WWII that if we do not remain a strong power on the world stage, peace is impossible to have because certain nations have an agenda to grow in land, treasure, and power. Putin is in charge of making the power play while Obama is in charge of the comic relief!

The truth is that the West is seeking a way that will allow Putin to save face after all the damaged he has caused to Russia's world image and to the Russian economy.

Alarm: Putin Will Not Stop With Crimea. Paper-Tiger Obama Will Do Nothing

To restore as much of the Soviet Empire as possible, Putin first had to insure no further losses. Any former Soviet state thinking of deserting to the West must be threatened or even attacked. Putin’s armed attack and annexation of Abkhazia from Georgia clearly display his script for wavering countries like Armenia and Moldavia. Try to join Europe and we will crush you. Ukraine is now on line to learn its lesson.

Ukraine represents the Holy Grail of Putin’s restoration policy. If Ukraine is lost, his policy has failed, and Putin cannot accept defeat unless the costs of fighting the battle are in the stratosphere. He has already calculated that the costs, if any, will be modest and the returns exceptional.

Putin brushes off Obama as Ukraine crisis escalates

In Moscow, a huge crowd gathered near the Kremlin at a government-sanctioned rally and concert billed as being "in support of the Crimean people".

Pop stars took to the stage and demonstrators held signs with slogans such as "Crimea is Russian land", "We don't trade our people for money" and "We believe in Putin".
http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/03/07/us -...

Ordinary Americans, meanwhile, are expressing marked skepticism toward any kind of intervention.
As Rasmussen reported, prior to the overthrow of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, only 17 percent of likely voters preferred escalating America's involvement in the situation. That's in contrast to 66 percent who wanted the U.S. to stay out and 18 percent who hadn't made up their minds.

You heard it here first.
Most of America has been named traitors by the democrats for being unhappy with obama performance.

The Battle for Ukraine
Russia Blows Past Obama’s “Off Ramp”

Yet another western plan for Ukraine ended in failure today. Will this hurt Obama’s standing in the Middle East? Absolutely
http://www.the-american-interest.com/wrm/2014...

Apparently, in the eyes of the obama worshippers, anyone who is disappointed in obama's continued failures is a traitor.
Of course this is a laughable position for the extreme left to take......
especially when 60-70% of America is not happy with obama's latest round of dissappointing failures. From his mishandling of the Ukraine situation to the complete failure of obamacare, America deserves much better than what we are getting from this incompetent administration.
and the polls reflect exactly that:
