US ships 300,000 MREs to Ukraine. Yep, that’ll scare Putin!

Marie Antoinette is said to have quipped, “Let them eat cake.” Barack Obama says, “Let them eat MREs.” Ukraine’s Prime Minister came to Washington DC to meet with President Obama and requested military arms support. Instead he got chicken ala king.

As reported in The Hill, The United States delivered 300,000 Meals Ready to Eat to the Ukranian military, the first delivery of American aid to the former Soviet republic, following Russia’s annexation of Crimea. Stupid me, I thought the Ukrainians were concerned about the invasion of their sovereign state, not nutritious meals.

The supplies were transported from a military distribution depot in Germany to the city of Krakovets, on the border between Ukraine and Poland. The U.S. European Command said “More non-lethal items are being considered for future delivery.”

When you have some 80,000 Russian troops massing on your border, methinks you might need some lethal items — certainly not MREs.

Last Thursday, the International Monetary Fund also announced that it had agreed to terms on a two-year standby credit of $14 billion to $18 billion to assist the interim government in Kiev, conditioned on strict economic reforms. President Obama heralded the loan program as a “major step forward” for Ukraine at a press conference in Rome on Thursday. “This significant package of support is going to help Ukraine stabilize its economy and meet the needs of the Ukrainian people over the long term, because it provides the prospect for true growth,” Obama said.

Once again, Obama fails to understand what is truly at stake. It’s not Ukrainian economic stability, but rather its existence as a free nation. Vladimir Putin’s center of gravity is energy, and economic sanctions or aid to Ukraine will not deter him from his objective. More talk from John Kerry only makes us look weak, and Putin is certainly not operating from a position of weakness — not matter how many times President Obama says that to convince himself so.

The North Koreans just fired off some 500 artillery rounds into South Korean waters. And it was four years ago North Korea sank a South Korean naval vessel killing 46 Sailors.

The world is on edge. And Barack Obama sends MREs — you can only imagine the message that is sending. Yep, America voted cool, and look what we got.

  1. Hey, maybe we should have sent Martha Stewart to fed the urcranian army??!! Or send them a bunch of scratch off to help their Econ .

  2. Wow. Yeah. America voted for Mr. Cool. How utterly foolish. Yes, foolish. Look where this IS HEADING. This action will no doubt lead to World War III. Thanks to Obama, and his uneducated voters, especially his overly-educated liberals who knows the truth, but don’t wanna hear it. That is actually foolish. Are they truly Americans? No. Do they support Americans? No. Would they give up their lives to save their countrymen? No. No. No. And no. They are selfish. UnAmerican citizens.

  3. They should be shipping for to Syria and military supplies to Ukraine. barry does want to upset Putin. They must have worked out a deal for Putin to carve out his new USSR. Just like the deal he carved ut for Iran keep your nukes if you like them and give us no assurances in the future that you will not use them. barry must go

  4. That’s what happens when you support “the rainbow” in the military. Next send some flowers to adorn Ukraine. LOL

  5. However you’d like to fool yourselves with the idea of “independent” Ukraine the truth is that the faschist Bandera crew (at the helm now) who violently overthrew the democratically elected (but yes, very corrupt, just like in America) government falsely hopes in better tomorrows if they join EU. “Peaceful” nobama wants EU to devour Ukraine because that means all existing industry there will get bought by mostly German enterpreneurs and Ukraine will get directions from Brussel on how to grow cabbage and how to not have any more vineyard and how to build a safe playground for kids and how to abandon the specialties of the regional gastronomy – all those things are not up to the EU standards. But Ukraininans believe that becoming EU means better job opportunities, more earning power. EU brought no better tomorrows to Czechs, Polaks, Serbs, Greeks just to name the few; it only brought uncalled for muslim immigration from Libya, Syria, Marocco, Iraq, Egypt, Turkey with all its bells and shariatic whistles. Self suficient agriculture and meat industry in Czech is now regulated over onto german pastures only to return to Billa (new German supermarket in Czech Republic) in the form of much more expensive (IMPORTED!!!) milk and halal meat. Muslims in Czech Republic got the exemption from the law against cruelty to animals and they can now slaughter halal style but they have no facilities to do it in large yet, thus import from Germany. Nobama does not care for Crimea Russian or Crimea Ukrainian. Nobama cares for islamic spread of islamised EU. And THAT is what Putin does not want for his countrymen, that is what sound folks do not want having the unforgettable experience from Chechnya and several other islamic deathly intermezzos. I immigrated here from the former Soviet satelite eastern European country but in this I stand with Putin. I am sick and tired of war mongering by those who claim Putin is a …..whatever….! He has a country as big as America, yet America was never devastated and decimated by world wars. Mr. West, I have a lot of respect for you but it is myself who went to the school with a Ukraininan classmate, it is myself whose nephew now dates a Ukrainian descendant girlfriend, and it is my original country from which Ukraine has been annexed by Soviets as a war booty since it was the most fertile agricultural land. So please, do not pretend that you have a patent on American style defending democracy and independence especially for people who are laughing at the “democracy” that is corrupted all over the world, including the american one. Obama is a one big bafoon imbecile and a fraud but you keep calling him president and you voted for raising the debt ceiling against your campaigning promise and ended up excusing it as a compromise. NO, thank you.

    • We call him President, because he is the President. Even if we don’t respect the individual in a position, we do respect the Office; hence, that is why we still call him “President”.

  6. So great, we are now constipating 300,000 Ukrainians. Where do you think Queen Mooszilla gets her meals from for her fabulous school lunch program? What are we trying to do, make their lives miserable? Maybe Obama is taunting Putin by making them easy targets. No way to make friends America.

  7. With all due respect Mr. West . . Crimea conducted a referendum and voted for Russia . . this is no invasion! In addition Putin has the right to react to the encroachment of Nato/UN into eastern Europe. My utmost respect to you as always!
