I would think that after the failures of conservative war-mongering since 9-11, most of them would keep a low profile about the mess in the Ukraine but once again I underestimated the true believers and its not just them:
Democratic Senator: Crimea Crisis Is Happening Because America Looked Weak in Syria

Every year, a large sector of the Washington Convention Center is occupied and bedazzled for the AIPAC Policy Conference. It's an overwhelming event, with optics and booming Hollywood soundtracks that make other political conferences look like Aslyum movies. The scale of the thing tends to elevate what's said there. That happened yesterday, when Delaware Sen. Chris Coons (who's up for re-election this year but lacks a credible challenger) joined former Sen. Joe Lieberman and former Shin Bet head Avi Dichter for a discussion of foreign policy. It was Coons, a Democrat who holds the seat formerly filled by Joe Biden, who suggested that the Obama administration had shown weakness and invited new threats.

The tide will turn when masses of both Democrats and Republicans storm the Israel-firsters off their stages.

Russia is aligned with Syria and thus Hezbollah, and softly with Iran. Israeli leadership finally admitted they preferred a anarchical array of jihadist movements fighting each other and anti-regime Syrian
movements to Iran-oriented Assad. Thus the "American" policy.
