Tonight on Special Report, Krauthammer described the situation in Ukraine as Putin trying to reconstitute the old Soviet empire and asked repeatedly why Obama isn’t involving himself in this. As Krauthammer points out, the stakes couldn’t be higher for that part of Eastern Europe and says it’s terrible mistake for the US to be so quiet on this:
… I have a question. Why is it Biden on the phone [with the president of Ukraine] and not Obama? The stakes could not be higher on the fate of that part of Eastern Europe.
Where is Obama? Ten years ago during the Orange Revolution, a similar one, the United States spoke out unequivocally on behalf of those in the street. The United States today is equivocal and quiet and timid. It’s a terrible mistake.
