    Russia had the agreement of the legitimate government of the Ukraine. But that doesn't seem to matter to you.

    When did any EU country authorise the government change in Ukraine?

    They encouraged it. That doesn't show too much concern for law.

    You think that the EU instigated the political turmoil which lead to regime change?

    I guess I just don't remember the American invasion of England.

    The point is the that we're being flaming hypocrites.
    There's nothing hypocritical about fighting your enemies and defending your allies.

    I don't see any reason why US's feelings should be hurt.

    If Crimea at this case, choose for Russia (as already did) that is bad, and if they choose EU is good?!
    Crimea called itself the Russian troops, they want to be with Russia, why should US stop it?! (since it is an EU issue as well)

    Higgins, I suspect he may not have known it, but he knows it now. We must all pray that he does not act on this, and become in reality what we wanted to paint him out to be. What we offer up to the Universe or God each day, the Universe will conspire to give it back to us.

    Talking to some friends who live in Kazakhstan today and they are generally worried about what this means for the future of not just that region but all former soviet states.

    No. I'm sure they had nothing to do with it.

    We didn't. But the poster I was responding to apparently doesn't consider the agreement of a country's government to make an entry of military forces acceptable.

    There is when you apply a gross double-standard.

    Because we're America, and we're betterer than everyone else.

    The Crimeans don't get to dictate Ukrainian foreign policy anymore than Texans get to dictate American foreign policy.

    When did the Ukrainian government invite Russian forces into the country?
