    Safe travels Joe. If anyone can get a solution out of this situation, it's you. Your foreign policy credentials exceed your critics by far. Good luck.

    This whole situation is just sad. Civil unrest and chaos because of a choice of who to do business with.

    Smith, are you talking about the Republican party in the USA?

    Smith is right- this is an unnecessary and silly problem- but one that probably has to play out geopolitically. The Ukraine is simply in a place that cannot be incorporated into the West, nor defended by it given the stakes. That what is happening now more resembles a civil war is a real "don't mess with this" sign.

    Anyway- good luck to our VP on this trip and hopefully something good can come of this.

    Ever get tired of being continually wrong?
    Biden isn't going to fail as there is no winning in this situation- simply put, this is mitigating the best end to an inevitable situation- Even Bush saw that with Georgia, so I am mystified that the Right is so bothered by the Ukraine situation-Except:

    On a broader note- the meme from the Right is everything is broken, and nothing works, and our President is unqualified- and they are simply wrong.

    They are wishing for and hoping for the end of the American government (or Waco-like events) to trigger our government's end. How sick, how petty, how stupid.

    They were wrong about the ACA; they were wrong about the IRS; they really whiffed in Benghazi, they were wrong on Boston, they are wrong on climate change, they are wrong about the economy, they were wrong on Egypt, Libya, and Syria and they are wrong about the President. Worse, they've done nothing but carp on these issues- no suggestions, no bills, nothing- just an anti-government shutdown and obstruction of the function of government.

    Proof? Look at the cesspool the GOP left us in in 2009. Today? Unemployment down; 5 years solid economic growth, the Market- up 100% (getting people back their retirement savings). GM and Chrysler- open for business as are all of their suppliers, record corporate profits, record oil & gas production with the U.S. being the largest EXPORTER of energy.

    Yet the Right moans and complains. Pathetic!

    @Devil`s Ad.-The European Union and Russia. What does the GOP have to do with the chaos in Ukraine?

    Guess VP Biden tells them that the US will NOT intervene , they are on their own. Then tell Putin, go ahead, now that the President is reelected, which other country do you want back.

    Have to agree with smith, and rs. The deeper we get involved in this situation the worse it is going to get. You would have thought we might have learned something in Viet Nam. Guess not. However, that said, I wish VP Biden success, and hope to God he can have a positive effect and outcome. Posters like Rick McDaniel, and rla have no concept of what is going on here or how quickly it could become global. God speed Joe, we are counting on you.

    And pay for this little war, or military support how? The GOP broke the bank, remember? Maybe another tax cut for the rich will make it happen? Not likely now. On a personal note- if you feel so strongly- go, volunteer, take your family and let us all know how it turns out for you. I'm sure Russians treat prisoners very well. Get a grip- the Ukraine WAS Russian, its population IS half Russian.
