“We’ll Give You SUCH A Pinch”

John Kerry, Super Stud Muffin

Secretary of State John Kerry warned of serious repercussions for Russia on Monday if last-ditch talks over the weekend to resolve the crisis in Ukraine failed to persuade Moscow to soften its stance.

…U.S. and European officials argue that Moscow is orchestrating the referendum and waging an intimidation campaign with thousands of Russian troops controlling the region. If Russian-backed lawmakers in Crimea go through with the Sunday referendum, Kerry said the U.S. and its European allies will not recognize it as legitimate under international law.

The U.S. and Europe on Monday would then unite to impose sanctions on Russia, Kerry told a Senate Appropriations subcommittee Thursday during a hearing on the State Department’s budget.

“There will be a response of some kind to the referendum itself,” Kerry said. “If there is no sign [from Russia] of any capacity to respond to this issue … there will be a very serious series of steps on Monday.”

You just know that Putin is quite likely shivering in fear.

Smart Power has him right where we want him, yessirree, caught up in that web of Reset.

Update: Per ZeroHedge, here’s a handy graphic so you can see those Russkies quaking in their boots at the Wrath O’Kerry

    The one thing about drawing a line in the sand is that if there’s nothing on the other side of the line, then all you’re doing is disturbing the sand.

    According to John Kerry, there are two kinds of people:

    – Those that are incapable of completing a thought.

    Nice map but they should have added one thing to it: The huge Shale Gas field between Donetsk and Kharkiv that Ukraine signed a deal with Shell to frack in Jan 2013.

    When Putin finally decides to lop off the furthest three what we would call states it is because of that Gas field. The whole “Warm water port” gambit is a smoke screen because that port does them no good if the piss off Turkey. Without Turkish permission nothing leaves the Black Sea into the Med.

    BTW there is an earlier report that the Russian Foreign Ministry has stated that Russia needs to protect the ethnic Russians for Far Right Thugs in Donetsk.

    It’s too easy to picture John F*@#ing Kerry pounding this into flinders while yelling “Don’t you know who I am?”.
