Putin, “I Can take Kiev in Two Weeks”: Obama, No Strategy Yet!

By John W. Lillpop

Russian President Vladimir Putin is showing signs that the sanctions and other aggressive initiatives by Barack Obama are having an impact—but mostly in the wrong direction as far as America is concerned!

Despite Obama’s full-court press, Putin is growing more incorrigible and hostile.  For example, in response to Obama’s urgent warnings about Ukraine, Putin invaded without batting an eye.

Thus emboldened, the communist dictator is now openly taunting European leaders and Obama by threatening to “take Kiev in two weeks”:

As reported at the reference:

Vladimir Putin has boasted to European leaders that his forces could sweep into Kiev in two weeks if he wanted. The Russian president reportedly made the threat to the European Commission president during talks on the Ukraine crisis.

Mr. Putin told Jose Manuel Barroso: “If I want to, I can take Kiev in two weeks,” Italy’s La Repubblica newspaper reported, implying this could be the result if the EU stepped up sanctions against Russia.”

Meanwhile, Barack Obama is preparing a statement about Putin’s threatening statement. White House aids, speaking on condition of anonymity, revealed that Obama intends to issue his statement within two weeks, or right after Putin takes Kiev, whichever comes later.

Sadly, THAT is the Obama strategy, patriots!
