BUT IT'S WRONG, BAD AND EVIL TO GO BACK ON ONE'S WORDS AND IGNORE TREATIES.
AND WE HAVE AN AGREEMENT (CORRECTED) TO PROTECT UKRAINE.
The Budapest Memorandum was negotiated as a political agreement. It refers to assurances, not defined, but less than a military guarantee of intervention. According to Stephen MacFarlane, a professor of international relations "It gives signatories justification if they take action, but it does not force anyone to act in Ukraine."
According to the memorandum, Russia, the U.S., and the UK confirmed, in recognition of Ukraine becoming party to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons and in effect abandoning its nuclear arsenal to Russia, that they would:
Respect Ukrainian independence and sovereignty within its existing borders.
Refrain from the threat or use of force against Ukraine.
Refrain from using economic pressure on Ukraine in order to influence its politics.
Seek United Nations Security Council action if nuclear weapons are used against Ukraine.
Refrain from the use of nuclear arms against Ukraine.
Consult with one another if questions arise regarding these commitments.
The memorandum bundled together a set of assurances that Ukraine already held from the Conference on Security and Co-operation in Europe (CSCE) Final Act, United Nations Charter and Non-Proliferation Treaty. The Ukrainian government nevertheless found it politically valuable to have these assurances in a Ukraine-specific document. THOUGH NOT A TREATY RATIFIED BY THE US SENATE, IT STILL HAS THE SAME EFFECT AS OBAMA'S RED-LINE ON SYRIA, AND A FAILURE TO ENFORCE IT HAS THE SAME ILL-EFFECT AS HIS FAILING TO ENFORCE HIS UN-RATIFIED RED-LINE:
FAILING TO ENFORCE OUR "ASSURANCES" REVEALS TO OUR ENEMIES - LIKE PUTIN, CHINA AND IRAN - THAT WE ARE A NATION THAT WON'T DEFEND OUR ALLIES.
IGNORING THAT ARRANGEMENT WITH UKRAINE - A DEAL UPON WHICH THAT NATION GOT RID OF ITS BEST DEFENSE AGAINST INVASION - LIKE OBAMA IGNORING HIS RED-LINE WOULD FURTHER SOLIDIFY THE FACT THAT CONTRARY TO HIS SELF-DEFENSE IN 2008 - AND HIS OBAMACARE LIES FROM 2009 TO 2014, WORDS REALLY DON'T MATTER TO OBAMA.
(NO OTHER PRESIDENT WAS PREVIOUSLY PUT INTO A SITUATION WHICH WOULD REQUIRE HIM TO ENFORCE THE UKRAINE AGREEMENT. OBAMA HAS BEEN PUT INTO THIS SITUATION AND HE IS FAILING TO TAKE ANY EFFECTIVE MEASURE.)
WHEN OBAMA SAID WORDS DID MATTER, HE WAS LYING... AGAIN:
