Re "Bending to Putin's will" (Letters, March 24): I have read numerous letters, viewpoints and cartoons criticizing President Barack Obama's stand and response to Russian President Vladimir Putin's illegal taking of Crimea. In all cases, the writers criticize Obama's lack of will, gumption or any other synonyms for force to impose his will on Putin.

The question I have is: what would you do? Would you invade Russia? Would you bomb Russian territory? Would you then create a photo op suggesting "Mission Accomplished"?

Remember George Santayana's words: "Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it."
