CHUCK TODD, MEET THE PRESS: This showdown with Russia-- this goes to the larger issue we're going to hear from National Security Adviser Susan Rice later this afternoon about, sort of an overall national security strategy that doesn't really exist in the Obama administration right now. They're struggling -- you know.
Even Russia, which you could argue, the tactics they have used -- on sanctions -- they've had the impact that they hoped they would have financially & economically in Russia. But they haven't changed Putin's behavior, that is I think the conundrum they face there.
And of course with ISIS, about the only good news perhaps is maybe the Arab world will think they want to kill Muslims as much as they want to kill Westerners -- others. Does this galvanize others?
