This maladministration reminds of a loosely worded quote from “Top Gun” something like Your mind is writing checks that your reactions can’t cash, basically Moral Bankruptcy. I would like to know the “OR WHAT” in this case. We know that Putin looks at BO like he’s the 90 lb. weakling and Putin is kicking sand in BO’s face not worrying about the “OR WHAT”. Where this goes is anybody’s guess. But with Kerry making up a 45 lb. half of the BO total 90 lb. weakling, all I see are someone else’s medals thrown over the proverbial fence. This is like Bob Newhart’s VT Inn show featuring Larry, Darryl and Darryl and Larry got smart and left.
John Kerry: Russia has until Monday to reverse course in Ukraine
By Susan Crabtree | MARCH 13, 2014 AT 1:11 PM
Secretary of State John Kerry warned of serious repercussions for Russia on Monday if last-ditch talks over the weekend to resolve the crisis in Ukraine failed to persuade Moscow to soften its stance.
Kerry will travel to London for a Friday meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov ahead of a Sunday referendum vote in the Crimea region to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation.
U.S. and European officials argue that Moscow is orchestrating the referendum and waging an intimidation campaign with thousands of Russian troops controlling the region. If Russian-backed lawmakers in Crimea go through with the Sunday referendum, Kerry said the U.S. and its European allies will not recognize it as legitimate under international law.
The U.S. and Europe on Monday would then unite to impose sanctions on Russia, Kerry told a Senate Appropriations subcommittee Thursday during a hearing on the State Department’s budget.
“There will be a response of some kind to the referendum itself,” Kerry said. “If there is no sign [from Russia] of any capacity to respond to this issue … there will be a very serious series of steps on Monday.”
