The report on Obama’s snub comes amid Russia’s growing willingness to test NATO’s military readiness. On Tuesday, NATO jets were scrambled after four Russian military aircraft were spotted flying over the Baltic Sea with their transponders turned off.
Over the weekend, a Danish newspaper published remarks by the Russian Ambassador to Denmark which he hinted that Russian missiles could target Danish warships if Copenhagen joins NATO’s missile defense system.

(Free Beacon) In a letter from President Obama to Russian President Vladimir Putin, the United States has alleged Russian violation of the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty the NY Times reports.
According to Senior administration officials, the U.S. Embassy delivered Obama’s letter today which concluded that Russia had tested a ground launched cruise missile in direct contravention of the treaty–Republican lawmakers have criticized the Obama Administration’s reaction to the breach which has long been known to officials acc0rding to the New York Times.
Flashback: On the 09 March, I wrote here that President Obama was on vacation “again” when the “Ruskies” invaded Ukraine in direct violation of The Budapest Memorandum executed in 1994 between President Bill Clinton together with British P.M. John Major and Russian President Boris Yelstin as part of the denuclearization of the former Soviet Union, promising to protect the sovereignty of the Ukrainian territorial borders from an invading military.
The Obama Administration and the dinosaur media have all been silent when it comes to this forgotten piece of history–should any treaty alliance with the United States have any meaning at all any longer?
(CNBC) Obama called on Russia this morning to cooperate with the investigation of Malaysian #17 disaster saying:
“My preference continues to be a diplomatic resolution within Ukraine–I believe that can happen, that is my preference today and it will continue to be my preference but if Russia continues to violated Ukraine’s sovereignty and back these separatists and these separatists become more and more dangerous and now are risks not simple to the people inside Ukraine but the broader international community, then Russia will further isolate itself from the international community and the costs for Russia’s behavior will only continue to increase.”
Huh? If these separatists become more and more dangerous. They shot down a commercial aircraft and are keeping crash and crime scene investigators away from the crash site, how much more dangerous can they be?
How is talking, talking, talking…changing Vladimir Putin’s behavior regarding the Ukraine?
Flashback: In March, the Obama Administration “warned” the Russian’s that there would be serious consequences if last ditch efforts to resolve the Ukraine crisis are futile.
Vladimir Putin doesn’t appear to care much if at all about Obama’s feckless threats.
