Europe has to follow Presodent Obama's lead and get thougher on Putin... those sanctions that President Obama had Putin calling him about the day of the jetliner shoot down is one example of Obama's strenght.

And there you have it, directly from the article:

"EU nations rely on Russia for about 30 percent of their gas demand and have intertwined interests based on decades of energy reliance."

So,(again quoting the article), "U.S. President Barack Obama has PILED PRESSURE on Europe for a more forceful response" ....which isn't going to mean diddly squat when nations are so dependent UPON Russia.

The more Obama keeps trying to keep up with his Nobel Peace Prize image, the more it appears the Peace Prize committee made a serious mistake in giving him the award.

If Obama thinks he can push Putin around and intimidate him like Reagan did Gorbachev he's go another think coming. Putin's no Gorby, and the whole world including Russia knows "Line-in-the-Sand" Barry squats to pee.

Dear, this President has not involved our country in new wars like the previous loon. That would count for something, right?

Yes, Gorbachev was a respected statesman and a real man, but Putin is a deformed, dwarfish repressed homosexual fascist.

No comparison.

The US/EU/Soros cabal destabilizing Ukraine and funding crimes against humanity today are understandably going to fall into the same sewer of nonsense and support each other's madness, even if it doesn't serve their best interests. Leftists are basically suicidal, after all. The atheists like Soros are just thieves.

Thank you explained. Now I'll know that I'm also a terrorist, because I live in Russia. I understand that Russia is a country of terrorists?
Ask yourself honestly, who unleashed the war in Ukraine, who burned alive in Odessa citizens who bombed slovyansk and Kramatorsk phosphorus bombs and finally who shot down the Malaysian aircraft. And maybe then you will understand who the real terrorist in the world. But don't think that this is Ukraine, but gun crime. But the main puppeteer sits in Washington, and the whole world just dancing to its tune.

Yeah, Cameron wants Continental Europe to apply the sanctions he doesn't want to impose himself!

I think the French and the German will tell him where to go ...

Marxist Democrats and their Marxist lackeys in the media display their paranoia by dreaming up intricate explanations of why their crony capitalism fails, or their imposition of Marxist dreams on other countries is met with opposition by freedom loving people. The stupid morons admit they put Five Billion Dollars into destabilizing Ukraine and when it inevitably fails, they need to expand their dreams of a new world order by blaming someone else with these delusional imaginations of someone else's "strategic plan." It doesn't phase them, that their accusations against Russia regarding Georgia did not pan out as what they claimed and was only Russia protecting people attacked BY Georgia AND Russia never had any territorial desires. It doesn't matter that Russia has NOT invaded Ukraine and the only criminal activities... artillery shelling of civilian cities paid by the US, illegal coups in Kiev paid by the US, outrageous accusations without a shred of evidence before smoke has settled in what now seems a Kiev inspired shootdown by their military plane... paid for by the US... the only criminal and provable illegal acts have been done by the illegal government in Kiev now falling apart and funded additionally by the US.

Just how crazy, or intentionally misleading does a creep like Clinton have to be to continue trying to fool the world?

The west has become immune to the Kremlin derzhavist BS, so you can drop it.

Kremlim started the conflicts in Georgia, Georgia simply escalated it together with Russia.
And Putin has himself admitted that Russia invaded Ukraine (Crimea). Etc., etc., etc.

Everyone who's not a post-USSR Russian Putin propaganda repeater to tea partier whose sole agenda is to be as ugly as possible toward President Obama knows that Putin is a pathological narcissist sociopath who's always testing the rest of the world to determine how much we'll let him get away with. President Obama has consistently and appropriately stood up to his unrelenting series of challenges, but Europe as an economic union is so dependent on Russia's fossil fuel supplies that it fears challenging Putin. However, Putin is so economically dependent on the EU that it could effectively stand up to him and win the challenge.
