Ukraine citizens had enough of their administration’s corruption, and when their president began cozying up to Moscow and away from their hard won freedom that was the last straw! They took to the streets of Kiev and ran the bums out of power.
( Shown left – Russian armor moves into the Crimea) The bums, namely Viktor Yanukovych and company, resurfaced in Moscow the following day, asking their handlers what to do next?
President Putin’s response was predictable, the former KGB chief proposed they do what good communists have always done, invade, occupy and systematically eleminate the opposition.
Suddenly thousands of Russian forces were on Ukraine’s border, allegedly doing nothing more than engaging in war game…nothing to worry about, or so said President Putin.
Across the Bearing sea and back in Washington D.C., our President had his own thoughts about how to handle the rambunctious Putin and the pending invasion of a soveign nation by Russia. “Any violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing,” he said in a hastily arranged White House appearance, desperately trying to get his sternly worded message out before the Russians marched on Kiev. “It would represent a profound interference in matters that must be determined by the Ukrainian people…. and and uh, what?” …It’s too late? The Russian invasion has already started?” Said a chargrined Barrack Obama.
Guess they weren’t too impressed with your speech, eh Barrack? They seemed to think your “serious consequences and standing firm with the other nations of the world” was pretty much a bunch of meaningless drivel. Your words were drowned out by the clanking of tank tracks and boots on hard pavement marching toward Kiev. You didn’t even give them a moments pause with your bluster.
Talking about standing firm… the first Russian enounter with Urainian resistance was a lone dissident standing in front of a 60 ton Russian tank heading into the Crimea. Unlike Tianamen Square, the man was simply run down and crushed to death.
This exemplified how seriously the Russians felt about Barrack Obama sternly worded speech. The invasion is on and the world’s nations watch helplessly, caught up in hand wring and analysis paralysis.
Those who have been paying attention realize that Obumble just re-read his speeches when the Russians rolled into Georgia several years ago. Took him 4 days to do absolutely NOTHING other than posture & preen before the cameras.
History is repeating itself.
Obama’s speech was hardly stern….Not sure what he/we can do other than a financial consequence. Obama went to a “Happy Hour” meeting with democrat donors right after his speech.
Sarah Palin was roundly mocked by the left on this prediction.
John Podhoretz probably said it best commenting on the Big BO’s speech the other day —
