I certainly am no apologist for Russia. Indeed, I believe that Russian President Vladimir Putin's stance on civil rights and freedom of the press borders on outright tyranny.

But when it comes to Russia's recent actions in Ukraine, consider this: If wholesale demonstrations in Mexico led to a new government there, one bent on making its primary trading partner anyone other than the U.S.A., what would we do?

Think about that as the West hurls idle and simultaneously wildly destabilizing threats at Mr. Putin.
