Threatening sanctions, all options are on the table, the Russians are taking over the world, the Chicken Littles are crying wolf and stomping their feet. The Americans have seen too many epic foreign policy failures, wasted blood and treasure to believe getting into a long protracted confrontation with Russia is in their best interests.
As an exclamation point on the stupidity the US is engaged in John Kerry is lecturing the Russians about invading a sovereign country:
“You just don’t invade another country on phony pretext in order to assert your interests,” John Kerry said during an interview with NBC’s Meet the Press. “This is an act of aggression that is completely trumped up in terms of its pretext. It’s really 19th century behaviour in the 21st century.”
How could the Russians even consider it? Talk about an ‘I don’t get it’ moment. As Americans, that should embarrass us one and all … and they are running the country, very scary.
It is nice to hear some in-depth analysis on Ukraine from some experts and having those experts support their contentions with facts.
Then there is the Morning Joe crew, talking about an unstable Putin etc. making sure that they never cite any facts to support their vilification. Would you like to see these two groups of pundits debate?
The Morning Joe propagandists agitating for aggression.
