Ukraine Russia and Using Patience

To prevent war quick sanctions must kick into high gear. Rhetoric is a useless weapon against a tyrant named Putin. We are taught reason will win out over tyranny. Putin has been trained to use reason and negotiations as a means of gaining advantage and delaying your opponent from taking action.

Obama was outsmarted. A person of reason tends to believe everyone is trying to be reasonable. His
opponent, Putin, used this to his advantage. The West was outsmarted as everyone enjoyed the Olympics in Russia.

Putin's closest allies in Russia are the Oligarch billionaires who got rich in the aftermath of the Soviet Union. We need to remove our natural gas spigots to the Eurozone. Delaying tough actions sends the wrong tone to Putin.

The bad news is Russia is use to more pain then we are.
