Insert Unbelievably Small Threat Here

I remain impressed that the Russians manage not to laugh out loud in Kerry's face whenever he speaks to them.


"We are in full agreement that it is critical for Russia to show in the next hours, literally, that they're moving to help disarm the separatists [in eastern Ukraine], to encourage them to disarm, to call on them to lay down their weapons and to begin to become part of a legitimate process," Kerry told reporters in Paris.

In what alternate world do the Russians--literally or figuratively--wet their pants in fear when Kerry speaks all forceful-like?

I mean, did Kerry threaten unbelievably small sanctions, or something?

UPDATE: Thanks to Stones Cry Out for the link.

UPDATE: I know. This is shocking:

Last week, John Kerry said that Russia needed to pull back in Ukraine in a matter of "hours, literally."

But more than 100 hours later, Russia has done no such thing.

John Kerry couldn't issue a believable ultimatum to the bus boy who cleans his table at his favorite French restaurant.

Face it. John Kerry himself is the "flexibility" that Preident Obama promised Russia back in 2012.
