Russia was stung by our twisting of a UN authorization for a no-fly zone to protect Libyan civilians into the justification to be the rebel air force in that 2011 war. Is the Obama administration giving Putin a precedent to intervene in eastern Ukraine by that act?

And is the Obama adminsitration's odd justification for bombing the Islamic State in Iraq by tying that to humanitarian missions giving Putin a precedent to pair an aid convoy going into Ukraine with Russian military (or Interior Ministry) armed moves?

I'll say it again, it is odd that the president has kill lists for jihadists anywhere but in Iraq where the jihadists are most successful.
