Ooooooooh, Aren't We Intimidating?

With the exception of the last couple seconds, this video perfectly illustrates U.S. foreign policy. With Syria, China, N. Korea, Al-Qaeda, Hamas, and now, Russia.



At the risk of sounding Un-American, I have to admit, at least part of me is Rootin' for Putin.

John Kerry: Russia has until Monday to reverse course in Ukraine

Secretary of State John Kerry warned of serious repercussions for Russia on Monday if last-ditch talks over the weekend to resolve the crisis in Ukraine failed to persuade Moscow to soften its stance.

Kerry will travel to London for a Friday meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov ahead of a Sunday referendum vote in the Crimea region to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation

U.S. and European officials argue that Moscow is orchestrating the referendum and waging an intimidation campaign with thousands of Russian troops controlling the region. If Russian-backed lawmakers in Crimea go through with the Sunday referendum, Kerry said the U.S. and its European allies will not recognize it as legitimate under international law.
The U.S. and Europe on Monday would then unite to impose sanctions on Russia, Kerry told aSenate Appropriations subcommittee Thursday during a hearing on the State Department'sbudget.
“There will be a response of some kind to the referendum itself,” Kerry said. “If there is no sign [from Russia] of any capacity to respond to this issue ... there will be a very serious series of steps on Monday.”

  1. I thought of that very cartoon yesterday when Lurch gave his deadline. Who is that fool kidding? And I don't think it is so much that people are rootin for Putin. We all know he is a ruthless KGB dictator. We just happen to hate our own communist dictator so much we love to see him made to look like the fool he is. But here is a big difference between the two. Putin is a strong LEADER , Barry is a jester. Putin seems to care about his country. Barry tries to destroy his country. I have no doubts Putin is a bad guy and is evil, but he at least he puts his country first, not illegal aliens like Barry. I think that is what we are witnessing, not that people admire Russia or Putin, just that he puts his nations interests above political correctness. I could be wrong but that's how I feel.

    1. Barry is an idiot, along with the rest of his entire crew. Did I ever mention that he was born in Kenya? You would think that since he was foreign born, and spent a considerable portion of his life in foreign lands, he might have some better idea of how to relate to people in other parts of the world. Maybe he does, but like you said, his objective is to destroy this country.
