Large numbers of Russian forces reported entering Crimea

Large numbers of Russian troops were reported landing at a military air base in Crimea Friday, prompting Ukraine to accuse Russia of a military invasion.

It’s difficult to call it anything else.  Uninvited armed troops in a sovereign nation’s land …..  Of course, president Zero has words about all this!!!

At the White House, President Obama said the U.S. government is “deeply concerned” by reports of Russian “military movements” and warned any violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty would be “deeply destabilizing.” 

“There will be costs” for any military intervention, he said, without specifying what those costs might be.

Well, at least he didn’t give them a line to cross …… amirite?

Breitbart has this ……

PALIN MOCKED IN 2008 FOR WARNING PUTIN MAY INVADE UKRAINE IF OBAMA ELECTED

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin warned that if Senator Barack Obama were elected president, his “indecision” and “moral equivalence” may encourage Russia’s Vladimir Putin to invade Ukraine.

Palin said then:

After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama’s reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia’s Putin to invade Ukraine next.

For those comments, she was mocked by the high-brow Foreign Policy magazine and its editor Blake Hounshell, who now is one of the editors of Politico magazine. 

In light of recent events in Ukraine and concerns that Russia is getting its troops ready to cross the border into the neighboring nation, nobody seems to be laughing at or dismissing those comments now.

Hounshell wrote then that Palin’s comments were “strange” and “this is an extremely far-fetched scenario.”

“And given how Russia has been able to unsettle Ukraine’s pro-Western government without firing a shot, I don’t see why violence would be necessary to bring Kiev to heel,” Hounshell dismissively wrote.

The fact of the matter is, as unbelievable as this can be, Zero is even worse on foreign policy than Jimmy Carter!!!  But, that’s what the American people wanted.

    Obama’s limp stick.

    Ah Sarah, how I miss you.

    In the meantime Obama has said that Russia would face “consequences” if they used military action in Ukraine. I guess the consequence he is referring to is that Russia would gain complete ownership of Ukraine and America would do nothing at all about it. Red lines drawn in water.

    Putin has the measure of Obama and Cameron and knows he can do what the hell he likes in his “near abroad”. How does he know? One word “Syria”.

    “However, Hounshell doubled down, dismissing Palin for calling him a “dummy,” before sarcastically writing, “Yes, Twitter, Sarah Palin totally called this exact Ukraine scenario 6 years ago.” “
