Obama and the European Union are putting sanctions on banks and defense contractors. The following is posted by Fox News: “The coordinated sanctions by the U.S. and European Union were aimed at increasing pressure on Russian President Vladimir Putin to end his country’s support for separatists in eastern Ukraine whom the West blames for taking down a Malaysian airliner nearly two weeks ago. Obama and U.S. allies also warned that Russia was building up troops and weaponry along its border with Ukraine.
Bravo for our hero Obama but it’s not going to work. What is Obama and the European Union going to do if and when Putin extends this war effort that he has started. Does Obama really think that Putin before he started this endeavor did not know that Obama and company were going to put sanctions on Russia.
Obama is playing with an ex KGB agent that had said in the past that his biggest disappointment was the fall of the Soviet Union. What do you think that means Obama, that he’s going to worry about a small inconvenience of sanctions that he had already considered. Obama is too late in showing any kind of bravado. Putin is very popular with the Russian people and it’s people can take a hardship of economic sanctions.
I believe Putin has convinced himself that he will be the one to bring Russia back to greatness. This will be a true test of how far he is allowed to go. Obama said that this is not the start of another cold war in answering a reporters question, I would say it’s worst than a cold war. If Russia moves forward and starts taking over lost satellites as they were called during their occupancy by the Soviet Union I would not call it a cold war but a hot war.
Yes Obama, your socialist professors at Harvard did not teach you anything except how to transform America into your own liking. You are not in the same league as Putin. Obama has been concentrating so much on how to beat our Constitution that he forgot that it was the leadership roll of the United States that had kept the world in check. This is what a superpower does. This is one of the aftermaths of being classified a superpower. We like it or not we exert leadership and the world looks up to America for answers. This is what America has lost with the lack of leadership with Obama. I am an American. I want to be looked at with respect again around the world as before and we can get that respect again because we lost that respect only from a self-inflicted wound by this president who wants nothing to do with America having a leadership position in the world. We will be forced into that position again if Obama likes it or not because without that leadership and respect we will only somewhere down the line be attacked and We The People will never allow any president to put us into that position including Obama.
