Bolton: Kremlin ‘Laughing’ At Obama

Posted on March 2, 2014 by Paul

The Kremlin is breaking out in laughter over the response by President Obama and members of his administration to Russia’s moves in the Ukraine, charged former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton in a radio interview Sunday.

Stated Bolton: “When you hear President Obama or members of his administration call on outsiders to leave the resolution of the problem of Ukraine to the Ukrainians themselves, they must break out laughing at that in the Kremlin.”   

“They are never going to sit back and let that happen. And that’s what you see happening right now,” he said.

Bolton was speaking on Aaron Klein’s WABC Radio show in New York.

The diplomat warned “the whole world is watching.”

He continued: “If [Russian President Vladimir] Putin prevails in Ukraine, it sends a signal to all the republics of the former Soviet Union, and it sends a signal worldwide that under Obama American power and will are in decline.”

Bolton said Russia is using the crisis in Ukraine to assert itself internationally and re-establish its stronghold over former Soviet satellites.

“And [Putin] faces a weak, feckless Obama administration and a weak and disorganized European Union, which has made Western Europe less than the sum of its parts,” Bolton said.

Earlier today, there were reports hundreds of armed men believed to be from the Russian military surrounded a military base in Ukraine. This followed other reports, first denied by Russia, that Russian agents seized one or two airports in the Crimea region.

Russian troops are now said to control key parts of the Crimean Peninsula.

In response to the moves, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said today Russia may be booted from the G-8 unless it retreats from Ukraine.

The White House said Obama called Putin yesterday to express “deep concern over Russia’s clear violation of Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity, which is a breach of international law.”

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
