    I'm not going to talk up Russia or their actions here. It's not a system I would want to live with, nor do I particularly like Putin at all. But he is a very strong politician, much in the mold of our greatest presidents.

    As to the Ukraine issue, it's a tricky question and I'm not familiar enough with what locals think as to ownership and country. Heck, wasn't too long ago the US went down to Panama and ousted the government there because we had "interests".

    Yes. We had to reclaim the Panama Canal so we could give it to China. What could go wrong with that?

    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?
    None of that is the issue whatsoever.

    The issue is that the Ukraine government gave up their nuclear weapons in exchange for a vow that we would protect the integrity of their borders. It turns out that was a chump move in which Russia, the USA and Britain tricked the Ukraine government into vulnerability to invasion and conquest - which has now happened.

    There is no possible disarmament or non-nuclear proliferation agreement to be reached with any country in the future as it has been proven it is just a trick to try to convince the leader and country to voluntarily expose themselves to invasion. Why would any country make an agreement to not develop and keep nuclear weapons knowing such an agreement is worthless?

    That is the issue, not the Crimea. Care to argue with that?

Its kinda cute how consistently people ignore the guy MAKING the threats and then jump up screaming about the 'conservatives'.
    I thought we were talking about your dissatisfaction with Obama on the Ukraine?

    Asked a different way. Do you think Obama should be putting our troops up for Ukraine?
