The White House continues to weigh its options to address Russian intervention in Ukraine and it’s not clear that any of them are good. As Russian President Vladimir Putin derides Barack Obama as a sort of foreign policy mad scientist “running experiments on the rats,” Obama can hardly afford to turn away from the conflict and its Cold War-era undertones. But with no one in the United States or Europe seriously considering military force – and with little support for another foreign entanglement from war-weary Americans – he’ll have to rely on economic and diplomatic actions from increasingly intertwined actors on the global stage.
