Thor, Meet Vlad ... the New Hammer

In Norse mythology Loki was a trickster and Thor, wielding a great hammer, put Loki in his place. Fast forward to the 21st century.

Obama is the new Loki and Putin not to be intimidated, hammers the prissy POTUS with grit and determination. Vlad is on a role: Syria, Sochi and now Crimea. What a man!

YES!! I am SO hopeful that is the case!


I don't get it. What did I miss?

It was reported that Putin ordered the end of "exercises" on the Ukrainian border.

Now the markets are REBOUNDING because of the good news.

What about all the troops who are in Crimea? Did everyone just accept that they are not Russian troops after all but in fact Crimean residents? What exactly has changed since yesterday?

What did I miss?

The Russian government noted that Kerry has raised hypocrisy to a new level"...

Look like two complete a-s-s-h-o-l-e-s spouting their poppy-cock today.
After Vlad put them in their place.
Vlad outed them for their "lab rat experiment" style CIA coup attempt in Kiev.
Totally exposed their dirty deeds.

Mission accomplished.

I would say.
