from USA Watchdog:
resident Obama called the Crimean parliament vote “to enter into the Russian Federation” a “violation of international law.”
President Obama announced sanctions on anyone “violating the sovereignty of Ukraine” or “stealing the assets of the Ukrainian people.” The Russians said earlier in the week they would dump dollars and Treasury bonds and also seize Western assets if sanctions were imposed. Well, it is definitely game on. Last week, Russia invaded Crimea and took control of the airport and seaport, the home of the Russian Black Sea fleet. I think this is looking more and more like a U.S. policy blunder than anything else. It has been reported the U.S. spent $5 billion to support the protesters who succeeded in removing the pro-Russian president of Ukraine from office. My question: What did the Obama Administration think Russia was going to do? Even in checkers, you think a few moves ahead; and, clearly, the U.S. did not anticipate the Russian reaction.
