Cagle Post: A Diminished President

In the last few weeks, the world’s attention has been fixed on Ukraine. This activity is just another event in a long series of global crises over the course of the past several years. The world is watching and waiting on the United States, as our Nobel Peace Prize-winning President continues to sit back and allow evil to go unchallenged on the world’s stage.

While Obama and his liberal allies may think the Cold War is ancient history, Putin appears to disagree. Not only does he disagree, he is challenging Obama by advancing into Ukraine. The Russian autocrat is taking advantage of Ukrainian instability and American weakness to seize the strategically-important Crimean Peninsula in southern Ukraine. While it’s true that most of the residents of Crimea are ethnically Russian, the area has been part of the Ukraine since the end of the Cold War and the Russians have no right to take it.
