(Yahoo News) President Obama on vacation again this time in Florida, continued with his telephone ‘hope for change’ consultations with European and Baltic leaders regarding the invasion of Ukraine by Russian troops, agreeing that the international community should continue to support Ukraine’s efforts to stabilize its economy and prepare for May elections, while Russian forces in Crimea dig in.
On Thursday Russia sunk 3 of its decommissioned ships at the entrance to Lake Donuzlav on Crimea’s western coast to block Ukrainian naval ships and allied navies from from entering off the Black Sea, highlighting Moscow’s intentions of staying in Crimea.
Russian leader Vladimir Putin, unfazed by Obama’s naivety, ‘The Telegraph’ reports that Russian forces have now seized the Chernomorskoye Ukrainian border post in western Crimea–the 11th so far, taking an additional 30 guards prisoner.
In 1994 then President Bill Clinton together with British Prime Minister John Major and Russian President Boris Yeltsin, executed a treaty known as ‘The Budapest Memorandum’ as part of the denuclearization of the former Soviet Union, promising to protect the sovereignty of Ukrainian territorial borders from an invading military.
The Obama Administration and the dinosaur media, have all been silent when it comes to reporting this forgotten piece of history, that may result in the United States and Great Britain going to war with Russia, should treaty alliances still have any value?
What is Obama’s plan now during this foreign policy crisis in which U.S. military lives may be put in harms way?
On Saturday, instead working in the White House and ordering U.S. Naval fleets and troops into positions to shore up a battered Ukrainian military defense from an invading army, President Obama went golfing with former NBA player Alonzo Mourning and sportscaster Ahmad Rashad, as the crisis in Ukraine continues to worsen and the United States together with Britain may be on the verge of World War III.
