BETTER LATE THAN NEVER

I am NOT a foreign affairs pundit so what I claim here doesn't have much weight but I think the West should've taken a stronger approach to Russian sanctions from the beginning.
France Won't Give Russia Its Warship Until It Behaves
Russell Berman

But with Russia refusing calls to remove its forces from Ukraine, the office of French President Francois Hollande now says the "conditions" aren't right for a delivery, according to Agence France-Presse.
The president of the Republic declared that, despite the prospect of a ceasefire which still remains to be confirmed and implemented, the conditions for France to deliver the first warship are not to date in place."
The statement was issued on the eve of a major NATO summit, and it came as President Obama tries to mobilize a united front among alliance members against Vladimir Putin.

Research Lendman and Roberts on the subject.

other than the throwaway comment on free trade, which has nothing to do with his subject, Mish has got it pretty much right on Ukraine and neocon-lib internationalist meddling in general.
