    Correct.

    The government of Crimea invited the Russians.

    I am just going to guess that Russia will spend a lot less money in the Ukraine and there will be a lot fewer people killed there than in the USA's misadventure in Iraq.

    I will also predict that Russia will accomplish a lot more in the Ukraine than the USA has in Iraq.

    Does anyone want to argue any of these points?

    It'd be pretty hard to accomplish less than we did in the middle east.

    True.

    We did help Iran by putting a Shia-controlled government in charge in Iraq

    The USA did 'accomplish' that.




    I doubt that Russia will ever put a government friendly to the Ukraine in charge in Crimea.

    That's not going to happen.

    The Iraq war was in the 21st century. John Kerry voted for it.

    Well should be interesting to see if the US Navy goes ahead with its pre planned naval drills in the black see this month.

There is zero appetite for us to get involved in more foreign wars, or even THINK about it. Anyone on the GOP side saying we need to use our military here needs to be strung up by their short and curlies and used as a pinata.
    I'm also wondering why the right-wingers think we should attack Russia.

    I don't see why not. They won't be misconstrued where drills are commonplace. Certainly, no one will misinterpret them as aggression.

    LOL! Yep, and I wonder if Kerry used the same speech he made before congress after returning from Vietnam--- "...cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan..."

    Why in the heck did Obama pick this guy?
