We should all be thankful for President Obama’s cool head in handling the Ukrainian crisis.

His speech in Belgium successfully isolated Russia from the world community for their threat to Ukraine.

His visit to Saudi Arabia and to see Pope Francis capped off a triumphant week.

By the end of the week, Putin blinked and called him for a long conversation.

We can also be thankful that he has maneuvered us through the Iran, Syrian and Libyan crises without loss of a single American soldier.

Hail to the chief!
