Obama warns sanctions against Russia are ‘teed up’

Obama has his mind on golf and golf on his mind. Putin is laughing at him all the way to the bank!
Check it out:

President Obama said Thursday that new sanctions targeting Russia are “teed up” in the wake of a fresh warning by the Russian foreign minister that attacks on Russian citizens or interests in Ukraine would bring a firm response.

Obama said Russia has not abided by the spirit or the letter of an agreement reached in Geneva last week that aimed to ease tensions in eastern Ukraine. He said Russia has failed to halt aggression by pro-Russian militants in the region.

Still, he cautioned that the United States needs to secure the support of allies to ensure that additional economic pressure is even applied. He conceded that new sanctions may not change Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intentions and that the crisis in Ukraine may not subside.

“How well they change his calculus depends on the cooperation of other countries,” Obama said during a news conference with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe during his first stop of a four-country tour of Asia.
