    Surely the historical lesson is to draw a very bright line in the sand at the (new) Ukrainian border. It’s not enough to simply draw historical parallels. A quick and easy first step would be to invite Ukraine to join NATO.

    A better way is to invite Ukraine to be a neutral state, with friendly relations in both directions. I think it’s a good solution. But it’s also a good test of Putin’s intentions.

    Sticks and stones . . . The day Putin cares about what’s said about him will be Obama’s chance to have some influence with the little tyrant.
