Biting off more than you can chew

"The UN Security Council is about to hold an open meeting on the growing crisis in Ukraine, as the biggest confrontation between Russia and the West since the Cold War unfolds.
Russian President Vladimir Putin wrestled control of the Ukrainian Black Sea region of Crimea from Kiev, defying a threat from US President Barack Obama that "there will be costs" if Russia intervenes militarily…"
Yes, interventions in Iraq and Afghanistan have worked SO well.
I'm sure too, that the military can't wait to get into another no-win scenario with suicidal ROE.
Putin is going to take Obama out back of the woodshed and give him a dose of the blacksnake...

Lame-duck pres slapping empty sabre scabbard against leg.
got a lot of gall though - America has been invading and making war on other countries on a nearly annual basis since WWII!

I think Putin is just saber rattling taking advantage of gutless President Obama. He will pull back when economic sanctions become reality.

Obama read out the Statement with the commitment of a person at a children's party. It was weak

Dunno. Russia has been warning NATO for a few years new, that they are starting to piss her off with their constant creeping closer and closer to her borders.... Missile shields etc.
Putin is old school KGB and may well decide its time to make a stand.
