Russia firing artillery into Ukraine

Well, at least the Russian military's direct involvement is out in the open.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014...itary-targets/

I wonder how Putin will spin this act of war. Or if he'll even bother.

I could see Putin writing Obama's name on the warhead in spite and sending that puppy.

Maybe a second one for Kerry, too

Face it... Obama is not a lame duck, he is just a chicken. Yellow one at that.

If he were doing nothing out of fear I would agree with you. I don't think that highly of him.

The Administration says "we have new evidence". That's the story? What 'evidence'? Evidence from the same Administration that has not told the truth about anything yet? Move along, there's nothing to see here.

I'm still waiting for evidence that Russian sympathizers shot down the plane. Maybe it was Kiev? Getting the support of the American public is a big deal. Show me the evidence and I'll support you

There has been nothing but 'wolf!' cried by this Administration. Facts talk, BS walks.

I am sure from their standpoint the thought is if no one has done anything yet they probably are not going to now.

We'll be doing the same thing Russia would do if we were shelling Mexico... Nothing!

I'm pretty sure this problem can be solved by banning high cap mags in America, and requiring universal background checks.

You amaze me.

Thanks. I know - I should believe everything out of the media and the government go along and get along. Like most of this country. But I don't.

It's important to question things. Here's another question - what did Russia or her surrogates stand to gain by shooting down that airliner? I'm not saying they didn't do it. But nobody has proved they did - yet. Virtually all of America believes they did - but we don't know that. Rather than pee down my leg, I'll wait for the proof - one way or the other. I bet that amazes people too!
