There will be "costs" if the Russians send in military troops into the
Crimea. President Barack Obama warned Moscow on Friday. Obama has
crossed a "red line" (no pun intended) so the Russians recalled their
U.S. ambassador to Moscow. Now the poor people in Ukraine are really
screwed. Go figure.
"U.S. Officials See Russian Incursion into Ukraine as an 'Uncontested
Arrival,' Not an 'Invasion'"
"In other words, to save face over the fact that there's nothing much we
can do to stop this, the official U.S. line is that this can't be an
invasion if the Russians are being ... greeted as liberators."
