Stroke and Distance?

The situation in Ukraine worsens and Putin makes ever more menacing noises.
As Daryna Krasnolutska and Ilya Arkhipov of Bloomberg report:
Meanwhile in Japan, as Julie Pace of the Associated Press writes, President Obama warned “Moscow” that “the United States has another round of economic sanctions ‘teed up.’”
One suspects that Mr. Putin did not go limp with fear upon learning of this warning. Not even after one of his advisors explained the golfing imagery.
And the President seemed to get that, too, saying that those “teed up" penalties “may do little to influence Vladimir Putin's handling of the crisis in Ukraine.”
