I wonder if Obama will send them food anyway so that they don't get mad at him? Hungry, no...he will just take over another country to get all the food he wants.

That seems to be the way the US does it. Feed the enemy, we'll get along somehow.

I think everyone here is confused about this. Putin is stopping all foreign import of foods going IN to Russia.

In other words, he will not permit the US to ship ex. chickens into Russia. That is going to hurt us.

He is doing against because of the threat the UN pulled against him. Any country in agreement with the UN's threats will not be permitted to import food into Russia.

"Sources at the agency told Russian state media that the list would include all fruits and vegetables produced in the 28 EU nations. The ban would also cover US chicken and other agricultural goods."

Putin just pulled a "I don't care against the same threats that the UN pulled".

This is going to get ugly.

Fast forward. People are smart right now? Go buy chicken and freeze it up. The cost is going to go up in the US. You know any food producer that imports to Russia will claim that is why they have to raise the prices here in our markets.

This is why Obama needs to be REMOVED from office now. This Russian roulette game Obama is playing with Putin is going to end up hurting us.

I have said it before, Obama keeps making threats but never has the "or else" game in place. Putin just called his bluff.

This is going to blow your minds. Did mine. This is what the people of Russia are being led to believe.

The American president ordered the hijacking of the missing Malaysian airplane. Took it to an undisclosed location and used those people and that plane to be shot down to pin it on Putin for the plane that was allegedly shot down just recently.

Now the question becomes is it true or not?

What makes all this interesting? Who knows when it comes to the Obama administration? I think the US is in serious trouble.

This is not going to end well thanks to the idiot in the white house.

Told you the immigration situation and infrastructure problem would go unresolved.

Oh that's right the house ignored the bill passed by the senate in june 2013 .The proposal by Obama in june 2014 and the bill passed by the senate in july. Bohner and crowd threw their proposal on the table late Friday night and left .

My friend, ladybug...read carefully before you say anything.

WatchDog just may be correct...this could end badly as this administration continues to blunder through everything. The only people who are winning are those who are making bullets, etc. But if chicken prices go down, buy as much as you can before Obama smuggles them to Putin ( flexibility)?

Putin himself won't go hungry any more than North Korean leaders have gone hungry while their people starved.

But costs are already going up for the average Russian. My guess is somehow ours will too.

And what happens next?

he UK and US governments have warned Russia not to use humanitarian assistance as a pretext for sending troops into eastern Ukraine.

The UK Foreign Secretary, Philip Hammond, said, "I am deeply concerned by reports of an increased flow of heavy weapons crossing into Ukrainian sovereign territory from Russia and by reports of Russian armed forces exercising for a 'humanitarian intervention' in a third country."

And

Russian investigators have arrested five Ukrainian army officers, accusing them of using heavy weapons and killing civilians in their operations in Ukraine's Luhansk region.

They were among 400 Ukrainian soldiers who crossed the border to escape rebel fire on Sunday.

It is unclear on what grounds Russia can prosecute the officers, who reportedly deny the charges.

Bug, there is one big problem with isolation. I'm going to quote something I posted almost 5 months ago on the Ukraine poll question.

In 1994, Ukraine surrendered its entire nuclear-weapons stockpile—the third largest in the world at the time—in exchange for security assurances from the United States, Britain, and Russia. The agreement called for the three nations to respect Ukraine's independence and territorial integrity, and prohibited them from the use or threat of force against the country.

How should we honor that? Especially after Russia has violated it.

Do we or do we not honor that agreement?

If we hadn't gone into Iraq would your answer be different?

I have a moral problem with circumstances/timing changing our position.

Bill Clinton was president in 1994. I kinda wonder how he'd weigh in on what our responsibility/involvement should be. I honestly wonder.

" You know any food producer that imports to Russia will claim that is why they have to raise the prices here in our markets. "

If there is a glut of chicken, the price should drop.

Ladybug sez: "Idiot. Is that another one of those names you forget about calling people."

Obama is an "idiot".

Ladybug sez: "Kind of like scum bag ."

Criminals are scumbags. Now the next time you bring this up as if you think this makes a point in your bid to never EVER have ANYTHING to defend Obama on, that should help you to know the difference.
