Every day, we read of President Barack Obama or Secretary of State John Kerry talking about the sanctions they are going to impose upon Russia and the consequences Russian President Vladimir Putin faces for his actions. Don't they think Putin and the Russians weighed the sanctions available to the U.S. and the consequences Russia might face before they began these actions in the Ukraine? Looks to me like they did and they decided that the sanctions and the consequences would be worth it to Russia.
