    Obama and Kerry haven't gotten us into anything, quit playing Chicken Little.
    Obama and Kerry do not control all the events in the entire world, there ARE other actors.
    So far, I haven't seen signs that the Kiev protests were instigated by us (although, it wouldn't be too surprising, judging by our past performances). And Obama certainly didn't invite Putin to invade Crimea.
    So ladling on the blame for something that they haven't done.... Not helping.
    If you really need to slam Obama, go after stuff where he really has failed, not some imaginary slight, Ok?

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

      stupid cowboy shit, for not seeing it for what it was, and for handling the resulting fallout badly.

      Why is a neocon hack like Nuland in charge of such an important portfolio? Who's running American foreign policy? Is the president really in charge? Obama has been so directionless and passive in this whole scenario (and during the Syria mess) that one could be forgiven for asking that question.

      Sure, this idiotic idea might have been the EU's brainchild, but it was equally idiotic to go along with it.

      How is it that Obama allowed the EU's leaders to play him so badly? Now he's going to get played by Putin on the world stage. For the second time in six months!

      I wish our president were doing us proud on the world stage, but really, he's been doing quite the opposite recently.

      perhaps we have been instigating this crisis.

      Though this crisis also stems from the historical division of Ukraine – between its more European-oriented west and the Russian-ethnic east and south – neocon operatives, with financing from the U.S.-funded National Endowment for Democracy and other U.S. sources, played key roles in destabilizing and overthrowing the democratically elected president.
