The situation in Ukraine does not at this moment offer many happy policies for the people of this nation nor does it suggest that Western powers have uncovered a plan that will halt Vladimir Putin without risking the possibility of open war. So, what are the options in this area of the world:
1. Continue present policies and the “rebels”- who really are Russian troops in disguise– will solidify their control of eastern Ukraine.
2. Send arms to Ukraine and it might result in halting eastern forces in their tracks.
3. Send in defensive weapons and this might aid in causing a stalemate.
4. Send in offensive weapons and Putin will freak out and simply send in more Russian troops and weapons.
5. Embargo any and all economic relations with Russia and see what happens.
6. Send in NATO forces and see what Putin does.
Frankly, I lean to economic war which would disrupt NATO nations but not as much as it does Russia.

I have devoted my life to the study of American history and are quite knowledgeable regarding how those in different political parties interacted with one another. We do know about the history of the American presidency. Forty seven American United States senators sent a letter to the leaders of Iran which is a first in our nation’s history. They warned the leaders of Iran that once Barack Obama left office, a Republican president might void any agreement their nation signs with the US and other major powers. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IN THE HISTORY OF OUR NATION THAT A GROUP OF OPPOSITION MEMBERS OF CONGRESS CHALLENGED THE PRESIDENT WHEN HE WAS ENGAGED IN DISCUSSIONS WITH FOREIGN POWERS! It has alway been an assumption that our president conducts foreign relations. When Republican President Richard Nixon opened diplomatic relations with Communist China there were those in this nation who felt he had no right to negotiate with “Godless Communists” but no member of the Democratic party sent letters to Communist Chinese leaders.
The most ironic aspect of this Republican behavior is they have been yelling for six years that President Obama is not really an American who understands American culture! The 47 US Senators are traitors to this nation. They lack any understanding of separation of powers in our government. This is among the most disgraceful acts in the history of the United States of America. No, Barack Obama was not born in Africa, but 47 US Senators were not born in this nation!
