  •  I am NOT for an economic bailout of Ukraine. (0+ / 0-)

    Mostly because it's going to become Russian territory and they've got enough money without inheriting more of ours.  As the diary points out, our magic wand hasn't stopped Russian dominance over the Middle East (thanks to Iran being unleashed by our aggression) or its neighbors (remember Georgia?).  They have a stronger alliance with China and Putin is doing to us exactly what Reagan did to Gorbachev...death by economic escalation of military might.
    I appreciate humor even more than most but this is a deadly and serious event.  The USA, by having no cards to play that will make Putin think twice, is about to lose containment of Russia.  Obama will get the blame, it will affect Dem candidacies, including Hillary's, and GOTP will benefit.  2 polls already indicate Americans will still vote for the GOTP despite believing they are out of touch.  Palin has just been granted a major foreign policy prediction which makes the case that they're not as out of touch as people think.
    We are in trouble thanks to Putin and a racist/conservative population.
