 John Kerry headed to Ukraine
By: Reid J. Epstein
March 2, 2014 04:37 PM EST

Secretary of State John Kerry will travel to Ukraine for meetings on Tuesday, a senior administration official said Sunday.

Kerry’s travel to Kiev comes as President Barack Obama discussed the situation in Ukraine on Sunday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and will speak with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Polish President Bronislaw Maria Komorowski, a senior administration official said.

“The president’s point in all of his calls is to point out the complete illegitimacy of Russia’s intervention in the Crimea and Ukraine,” the official said.

Another senior administration official said Russia has moved 6,000 airborne and ground troops into the Crimean peninsula, adding that NATO is preparing a joint statement to be signed by all 28 members condemning Russia’s actions.

“We are also looking with allies and partners at a broad menu of options to curtail our economic and trade relationships, to look at pressure on individuals who may have been responsible and to curtail normal activity we may have with Russia to make it clear how we feel about this,” the official said.

He is going to kiss, and beg, and ugly them to death.
 
And when he demands, "Do you know who I am!?"
 
They will all say, 'Yes'.
 
We know who you are. We just don't give a shit.

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

I remember an episode of Star Trek, a Federation diplomat was caught between two planets which fought via coordinates.

I might be a little kooky thinking this way, but when Obama leaves I believe we are going to discover dozens of secret deal he has made with leaders all over the world which we know nothing about now. But that's just me.
