As Russian troops mass along Ukraine’s eastern border, know this: In these tense negotiations with Vladimir Putin, John Kerry will not blink. He can’t — he just had a massive Botox injection.

From the Washington Examiner:

Secretary of State John Kerry warned of serious repercussions for Russia on Monday if last-ditch talks over the weekend to resolve the crisis in Ukraine failed to persuade Moscow to soften its stance.

Kerry will travel to London for a Friday meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov ahead of a Sunday referendum vote in the Crimea region to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation.
[…]
The U.S. and Europe on Monday would then unite to impose sanctions on Russia, Kerry told a Senate Appropriations subcommittee Thursday during a hearing on the State Department’s budget.

“There will be a response of some kind to the referendum itself,” Kerry said. “If there is no sign [from Russia] of any capacity to respond to this issue … there will be a very serious series of steps on Monday.”

The “re-set button” could soon be repo’d. If that doesn’t work, Obama and Kerry will remind Putin that the Cold War has been over for 20 years and none of this can possibly be happening!
