Letter: Idle threats provide chuckles for Russia

Editor,

In a report on Fox News on Feb. 27, Russia is flexing its military muscles as protests again erupt in the Ukraine.

The news report also states that John Kerry warned Vladimir Putin that it would be a grave mistake for Russia to intervene militarily in the Ukraine.

In view of the fact the Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel recently revealed the U.S.’s intention of drastically reducing our military, and the “Red Line” fiasco in Syria, this ought to be good for a few laughs in the Kremlin.
