Obama Living in a Fairy Tale Land

Obama's speech against Russia's invasion of Ukraine is just empty platitudes. The Daily Mail reports on the speech, and writes:
President Barack Obama warned Russian president Vladimir Putin today that ‘borders can’t be redrawn at the barrel of a gun’ in a strident speech in Estonia. 
... He said history had shown that the ‘big cannot bully the small’ and ‘an attack on one, is an attack on all’. 
Obama added that a country’s independence 'can't simply be taken away by brute force’ ....
Except that force is exactly how most borders are redrawn, and history is replete with examples of stronger nations bullying weaker ones. Until Obama can accept reality, he will not be able to make decisions relevant to reality.
