resident Barack Obama flies Sunday to a Europe shaken by Vladimir Putins seizure of Crimea and his threats against eastern parts of Ukraine.
At a summit conference at The Hague on preventing nuclear terrorism scheduled long before the Ukraine crisis Obama will confer with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other leaders. On Monday afternoon Obama will meet with President Xi Jinping of China, Russias neighbor and sometime rival.
Putin has forced the United States and Europe to refocus on the origins of the modern transatlantic alliance -- the 1949 NATO defense partnership designed to prevent a Russian invasion of Western Europe.
We live in a different world than we did less than a month ago, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen told an audience in Washington last week. Russia's aggression is a wake-up call for the Euro-Atlantic community, for NATO, and for all those committed to a Europe whole, free, and at peace.
Russian brute force is a jarring diversion from Obamas second-term agenda of combatting climate change...
Previous American presidents had occasional quarrels with European leaders, but never were we faced with a kind of indifference that Obama seems to exude, Joffe said.
Obama said Thursday that Americas support for our NATO allies is unwavering.
We are going to have to think very hard in Europe and in the United States about how we are going to respond to the Ukrainian governments legitimate requests to have the wherewithal to defend itself, said Francois Heisbourg...
In a conference call with reporters Thursday, an Obama administration official sounded quite non-committal on arming the Ukrainians.

Europe losing confidence in Obama's policy of hope and change, fairy dust and peace prizes? When the rubber hits the road, they want the gas and the nukes.
Too chilly for golf in the DC area, I suppose. Heck, with Moochelle out of town, you’d think he’d be sneaking smokes in the Rose Garden, eating salty-buttery snacks, and having a grand time watching b-ball and checking his brackets.
obama is an kenya african and hates Europe. Europe would be wise to be cautious.
What....No money bag?? Why bother coming Mr. Obama.
He probably doesn’t hate Muslim Europe as much as he hates Christian America.
Hey EU then do something. Enough of this ‘Lafayette we are here’ crap. Been there, done that. We’re out of blood and treasure. Get off our dole.
Mr. Hahvid perfessor is getting is butt kicked by an old Soviet wannabe. I liked America better when it was being run by adults.
Oh, yes. I vaguely remember something like that. But Obama thinks the purpose of NATO is to invade countries anywhere around the world and install Muslim terrorists.
Actually, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton thought that, too.
Good point Jim. Have to still believe though, Europe should be extremely cautious and not believe anything, without verifying, obama says.
But maybe there are golf courses.
Or bath houses.
Putin to Obama, “I Won.”
Everything is going according to pResident Cloward-Piven’s plan.
HA HA Vlady did Ike Turner on Obama who knew
What an weak, idiot he is.
I see what you did there - LoL!
is there a film festival in Europe right now?
I'm not so sure that he has any African blood in him. Take a look at pictures of some Indonesians, Filipinos, etc., and you'll see a striking resemblance.
Let me clear this up for you. He was never a full time professor at any university. At the University of Chicago, he was a VISITING speaker at times, not even sure he was called an adjunct professor. He had no full time job as a professor at that university. He never straightened out this mistake others made about his being a professor at that university. He was a freaking community organizer of black people to complain about the injustice done to blacks.
He is a for sure hater of America and white people. Guess what, he will never be white and as long as he is black in any regard, he will hate white people. That is my opinion and I could be wrong - sure I am wrong. :o)
