July 16, 2014 - CNN:  Obama imposes new sanctions on Russia over Ukraine
July 17, 2014 - FoxNews:  Smoking gun? Intercepted calls point finger at Russian separatists in jet downing

Today, the professional journalists in the MSM are linking the missile to the sanctions asking why the plane flew over Ukraine.

The families have no one to turn to for this act of war and crime against humanity.

The US is now officially impotent.

We might be the world's policeman...  But we're on break.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

How come Obama and Putin don't get along, when they have so much in common:

For reference purposes only.  A 16-min drive down memory lane....

I would say there is at least one major difference between Putin and Obama (besides the fact the Obama is a Pajama Boy and Putin is ... well ... not a Pajama Boy). Whatever bad you can say about Putin - and there is plenty - he appears to have the best interests of the Russian people in mind. Obama has the best interests of Obama in mind.

Agree Comrade Robert! His focus on nationalist pride is a great distraction for a country that is shrinking in population size, has the highest abortion rates in the world, and is primarily dependent on selling their natural resources.

The Russians have always been contrary to the US. They always took the opposite approach to foreign policy, etc. But we fooled them. We elected an incompetent douche. Now Russia is the place to go to avoid gay marriage and a drug culture, and where Islam is treated as it should be. If they can fix the alcoholism, they'll set a high standard for the rest of us.

Russia obviously has massive problems, but unlike the US they seem to be trying to deal with them. Their solutions may not be beneficial to the US - in fact some may be harmful to US interests -but being helpful to US interests is not their responsibility. Putin may be an old KGB agent, but a commie he ain't.
