Calling obozos foreign relations blunders as 'strategy' is the equivelant to calling his unconstitutional rule of the US governing.

Barack Obama is such a joke . This man promised every special interest group everything . Did he deliver - no he spent 4 years on an another welfare program called "Obamacare" . So the Syrians gassed their own people . What did Obama do ? Nothing Iran continues to expand its nuclear program . What does Obama do? Nothing. And now Russia annexes Hslf if the Ukraine . What does Obama do ? Nothing . He's a fucking joke - an affirmative action choice who hands out food stamps for votes. And of course Fat, lazy , dumb/ downed America votes him in for a second term . Good Luck Lefties- hope the nukes hit New York and LA first !!!

The strange bedfellows of Neo-Conservatives and Marxists in the US and Europe have been planning the takeover of Ukraine since 1997. Putin wouldn't let them isolate a Russian Naval base. Marxists using extremist neo-Nazi trash in Ukraine, who've shown their character by threatening using nukes and trashing gas lines feeding Europe, is a troubling development in the Clinton/Obama/Marxist play book.

Military intelligence has advised Obama that Putin would go nuclear if we started a military action. Obama may be a clown, but he is not suicidal.

Obama's strategy is to foment and support uprisings, insurgencies and rebellions. He stops in his tracks when they fail, and he is unwilling to send in US troops.

By annexing crymea, Putin ensured Ukraine will not be voting for a russian friendly PM any time soon as the largest prorussian population will no longer vote in Ukrainian elections.

Turkey also doenst seem to pleased with this going on next door to them; and they also have some of the greatest leverage currently. They could simply close their waters to russian war ships, making their naval base there useless.

Not sure what Putin's game plan is here but it seems currently that russia is at a net loss. No more hold over Ukraine, economy taking a hit since this started, sanctions on the way, and pissing off more neighbors. Is taking Crimea really worth it?

"Taking Crimea" is all a bunch of Leftist Obama nonsense. There are STILL fewer Russian troops in Crimea, than allowed under long standing agreements with Ukraine. Crimea has more legitimacy as an independent State, than the five false referendums arranged by the US and EU in recent history. What was McCain doing in Kiev encouraging violence in late 2013? From where did the funding of supposed NGOs in Kiev come, that supported hooded extremists taking control of the government with guns and random beatings? Does anyone actually think Russia should belly up and give NATO the Russian Black Sea Naval base? NATO doesn't even have a reason to exist; they argued about disbanding before Clinton (the traitor giving Red China missile tech for campaign funds) used them to bomb innocent civilians in the West's takeover of Kosovo. Democrats and RINOs have become America's traitors.

In Ukraine the mobs in the street won. They toppled the government in Kyiv that was elected by the voters. If Yanukovych was still in power there would be no crisis in Crimea. The allegedly pro western forces started this... not Putin.

Why the EU, the USA and NATO support the toppling of elected governments and rule by unruly mobs in the street is another question. If they had waited for the next ballot none of this would be going on.

Good point, but don't count this conflict over just yet. Russia may very well take over all of Ukraine shortly, and Obama is not going to say boo to them.

The revolution is responsible for everything.
There was no serious reason to overthrow Yanukovich after 21 Feb. when he actually gave the power over to the opposition.

Yanukovich wasn't overthrown, he fled the country and was then impeached.
