Obama : We Will Not Engage Russia Militarily

Obama told NBC San Diego that The U.S. will not take military action in the Ukraine crisis

"We are not going to be getting into military excursion in Ukraine. What we are going to do is mobilize all of our diplomatic resources to make sure that we’ve got a strong international correlation that sends a clear message"

Here is Barack Obama saying flatly that the United States is not going to engage Russia militarily in Ukraine. Nothing like the deterrent of creating an element of doubt in the minds of your enemies!

Just because you don’t intend to respond to Russia militarily does NOT mean you have to say that for all the world to hear! Obama said, “Might doesn’t make right.” Well, he just gave Vladimir Putin the green light to move into the rest of Ukraine or into other neighbors. Obama has essentially said, “We will do NOTHING of significance to stop you.”

Wild Thing's comment............

Might doesn’t make right? What a transparent diabolical non-man.Of course might makes right, depending on whose might it is.Was the might that stopped Hitler wrong? Is the might that stops someone from a crime wrong?

What an idiot - imagine anyone in the position to curtail wrong-doing not using their might. There are bad people in the world....this is what these flakes refuse to see.

I do NOT want to be in more wars especially with Obama as C.I.C.....But to broadcast to the world and to Putin that we will be weak is disgusting to me. Jus like when Obama said he was not looking for Victory in Afghanistan against the Taliban.

I don't believe we have the capability to engage Russia in a conventional war in their own backyard. Putin mobilized 150,000 combat troops before we even knew what was going on. That takes quite a bit of resources and logistics capability. Our Armed Forces have been in a drawdown for a number of years now. Morale has never been lower among the troops and NCO's and officers are counting down the days till they can retire.
