At a meeting with Ukraine’s new President Petro Poroshenko, President Obama promised him $5 million in new US military aid, along with ongoing support for his invasion of the eastern portion of Ukraine to tackle a secessionist movement there.
Most of Obama’s comments centered on condemning Russia, who he accused of “dark tactics” and “bullying” against Ukraine. Obama claimed secret evidence of “Russian military interference” in Ukraine’s east.
“Bigger nations must not be allowed to bully the small,” insisted Obama, going on to say that the US will never recognize Russia’s annexation of Crimea.
Russian President Vladimir Putin took a shot at Obama’s comments, panning the hypocrisy of the US president for accusing Russia of military aggression abroad while having massive amounts of US troops deployed all over the world, thousands of miles from US soil.
President Poroshenko has been suggesting some sort of compromise aimed at ending the secessionist movement in the east, though that seems to be opposed by more hawkish Ukrainian MPs, as well as several Western nations, which have endorsed unconditionally the military operations against the easterners, and seem averse to any result that doesn’t end with a bloody military defeat for ethnic Russians along the border region.

Russians sometimes in relation to the Ukrainians refer to themselves as "Great Russians", while calling the Ukrainians "The little Russians". I would take this comparison a step further. If the Russians, personified by Putin, can be seen through western eyes as Dr. Evil, then Ukraine has to be mini-me. Suspended by straps around Russia's neck, always incompetent, always causing trouble, and always in need to be bailed out by Russia.
Notice how Obama’s speech mirrored those of John Kerry? Both doesn’t know the meaning of the word ‘bully’ or to whom it is applied to.
The Master of "dark" tactics Mr.(Darth Vadar) Obama, talking about Russian tactics.
Nobody believes a word that comes from this mans mouth. He has lost all credibility. America's word means NOTHING to anyone anymore.
Is Mr.Obama the ante Christ ?
That is unlikely though.
Obviously a clear military defeat would be the ideal solution but, at some point, there will probably be a negotiated surrender of the remaining rebels, coupled with an amnesty. In practical terms, the more prominent leaders of the rebellion will probably flee to Russia, amnesty or not, because who took what side will be fairly well known and what the rebels have to fear more than the government is the rage of their neighbours whose lives they have disrupted for several months. Putin's point is correct, but the kettle proving that the pot is black doesn't prove that the kettle is white!
Obama says: “Bigger nations must not be allowed to bully the small,” hahahahah that is a laugh. Obama let alone the U.S. establishment doesn't have credibility anymore. Anyone with a half of a brain cell knows how full of cr*p Obama et al are.
