I guess watching the Russians do what they want in Ukraine is how the rest of the world felt when we invaded Iraq. Not much we can do. In our defense, at least we had fancy terms like coalition of the willing and had the backing of Tonga, Moldava and other powerhouses. As to what happens next, this is pretty much accurate:
This is the point in an international crisis when we all wait silently to see what Obama does so we can criticize whatever it is.

I checked the cable news networks, and none of them have a fancy CRISIS IN UKRAINE logo and special dramatic music, so I am assuming no shots have been fired yet.
