"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

At this point, this constant stream of flaccid warnings and threats coming from Obama/Kerry, are doing more harm than good. Now, of course, Putin has to do it just to show that he can. The same goes for ISIS and China.
 
If you know you are not going to pull the trigger, then don't draw a gun.
