OK grandma, I see your point about European unity.
And regardless of how equipped our military is, taking on the Russians isn't an option (heck, I actually like many Russians).
Also, I know we can't dictate politics in the Ukraine.
But we also can't tolerate Russian backed militia men blowing commercial aircraft out of the sky with surface to air missiles.
And you know the Europeans won't embargo Russian gas (its not like the US would offer to step in a supply the missing resource - even though we have plenty of natural gas).
I'm as frustrated as hell by the lack of options.
