    Obama says Putin violated international law and Ukraine sovereignty.

    Russia executed a de facto military takeover of a strategic region in Ukraine as the parliament in Moscow gave President Vladimir Putin a green light Saturday to proceed to protect Russian interests. The newly installed government in Kiev was powerless to react to the swift takeover of Crimea by Russian troops already in Ukraine and more flown in, aided by pro-Russian Ukrainian groups.

    Ukraine's interim president put the country's military on combat alert, while the country's prime minister said a Russian military intervention would lead to war and the country's foreign minister asked foreign powers to help protect the country's territory.


    In the wake of the vote Putin and President Barack Obama held a 90-minute call. The Kremlin said that Russia reserved the right to protect its interests and those of Russian speakers in the case of violence in Crimea and eastern Ukraine. The White House said Obama expressed the sense that Russia's actions were a "clear violation" of Ukrainian sovereignty.


    "The United States will suspend upcoming participation in preparatory meetings for the G-8. Going forward, Russia's continued violation of international law will lead to greater political and economic isolation," the White House said.

    He did violate his own treaty he signed with Ukraine. Glass houses and all that I know, but that doesn't change what Putin has done. The world probably shouldn't let Putin set this precedent.

    They already did with Bush and Obama.

    In Putin's mind, the USA is run by a weak president that knows nothing of world politics...and is obviously a very slow learner.
    He has no reason to think he cannot get away with this.

    Obama says Putin violated international law and Ukraine sovereignty.

    He has no reason to think he cannot get away with this because the Eutopeans are dependent on Russia for their natural gas and any Western military intervention is logistically impossible, plus no one is going to war over Ukraine. Andy Jackson or Teddy Roosevelt could be President and the situation would be the same. It's Hungary and Czechoslovakia all over again, with the same results.

    Obama can't do anything but say "I'm mad mmm k".

    Putin knows that our country is war weary and out of cash more importantly. Attacking a country that has thousands of nuclear warheads aimed at us is insane. At the same time who are we to scream foul when we were quite involved, meddling in Ukraine and Syria. 2 countries quite close to Russia. Imagine if Russia was actively engaged in a coup in Mexico or arming the opposition to the Canadian government. I'm sure we would have a big problem with that.

    Anyone remember this happening?

    Russian Air, Ground Forces Strike Georgia

    And the Bush response...
    "The United States supports Georgia's territorial integrity. We call for an immediate ceasefire. We urge all parties Georgians, south Ossetians, Russians to deescalate the tensions and to avoid conflict. We are work on mediation efforts and to secure a ceasefire, and we are urging the parties to restart their dialogue." -Dana Perino, Bush spokesperson.

    The response then looks very much like the response now.
