Re "Russian troops take full control of Crimea" (Page A1, March 2): Here we go again. President Barack Obama threatens retaliatory measures against Russia.
I am sure Vladimir Putin is shaking in his boots. Iran has ignored Obama's threats about its nuclear program. Obama's threat to Syria was a joke. Putin had to rescue Obama out of that.
In Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai is disrespecting Obama. Under Obama, leaders of other countries have learned how weak America has become. As the saying goes, words are cheap. Obama has proven to be an embarrassment to the country he represents.
