Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm not trying to obfuscate the aims of US policy in Ukraine, or to get Obama off the hook. Obama's foreign policy stance is hawkish -- not that this comes as a surprise, since it's the straightforward continuity of US policy since WWII (with a possible blip with Jimmy Carter).

Eh, wasn't Carter the one who started our whole bit of sending weapons to the mujahedeen?  Granted, the bulk of it was under Reagan, but that one kind of bit us in the ass.

Think Obama wins that comparison, if only for hesitancy on this sort of stuff.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
