Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
First of all the population of Cuba are not American or even have English as their first language.
Secondly the Cuban American agreement pre-dates the present Cuban regime but Cuba cant do anything about it. The US is occupying GITMO supposedly legally but in reality you bullied your way to the base when you supported the puppet dictator of Cuba at the time and are paying next to nothing for it.
Now in the Crimea you an area that was given to the Ukraine in 1954 or so by the Soviets. The population is 90% Russian, the main language is Russian and they have considerable self rule in the first place. They actually dont want to be part of the Ukraine and never have been. There is also an agreement between the Ukraine and Russia for Russian troops to be in the Crimea and operate there pretty much independently because of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.
In some ways yes...but with a much much bigger majority of Russians than there was German's in Sudetenland.Crimea = Sudetenland?
Yes, but that is far from being a member or even applying to be a member.They ahd already charted a path and created economic ties and were working towards EU membership.
Again false. Yanukovych chose not to have deep ties to the EU and instead turn towards Russia. He did not CUT ties to the EU. All he did was not agree to the first step that would eventually maybe have made the Ukraine a member of the EU... 10-20 years down the road. That is what triggered this whole mess.Yanukovych chose to abandon the will of the people, cut ties to the EU, and move the Ukraine back to Russia. Thats what has triggered this whole mess. Or have you missed that?
Secondly the regional government is actually pro-Russian and according to the reports, the men with guns who took over the buildings, did so to protect them from troops and armed men from Kiev.
The whole situation is driven by fear and that fear is based on past history. The people in Crimea dont trust Kiev because Kiev has removed and tried to remove even more rights form the area. It use to be very independent from the rest of the Ukraine but Kiev has been for years been pulling back powers. And that has all to do with one thing... the military port of Sevastepol... presently under Russian control and wanted badly by the Ukrainian nationalists. That is what Russia is protecting.
No and no. Russia has admitted it moved some troops to the Crimea yes, but it has not said that those troops have taken over the government buildings or anything else.Funny cause every defense analyst says they are Russian troops, heck even the Russians themselves admit it.
Russia admits that it has moved troops in Ukraine - Telegraph
Also the so called analysts are just that.. analysts and often with a hidden agenda, especially the American and British ones. Some are even pushing for war for **** sake..
