“Dear Obama, if you’re going to act like a bitch, I’m going to treat you like one.”
As Putin invades the Ukraine and crushes the few, disarmed advocates of self-determination and liberty, we should remember that this isn’t our fight or our problem. Nonetheless, we contributed to it. A history of weakness, vacillation, and empty rhetoric has consequences. One of them is that your flaccid words mean nothing, and even sometimes entice your geopolitical rivals to challenge you.
The people of the Ukraine will pay the cost of Obama’s weakness and naïveté, and that of his supporters.
