Vladimir Putin does not seem inclined to talk nice and patch things up with the West. To the contrary, he is drawing lines. They may, or may not, be “red." He seems confident enough not to need the modifier.

As Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reports:
Quote
    Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned of NATO forces strengthening positions closer to Russia's border. Speaking at a July 22 session of the Russian Security Council in Moscow, Putin said Russia needs to react "appropriately and proportionately" to NATO's moves but he added he currently sees no direct threat to Russia's sovereignty or territorial integrity.


Meanwhile, France will proceed with plans to deliver a state-of-the-art warship to Russia. Which, to use the parlance of international statecraf, “sends a message."

And that message?  Appeasement, if not collaboration.

Any reports of a large order of white flags by the Obama administration?
