    Let Russia come across as the brutish invaders and reap the repercussions, they are the ones who have sent militias across the border. Basically, the US needs to lead the world into making it more expensive (politically or otherwise) to stay in Ukraine. France, the UK, and the US will stand together, but how China responds will also be key.

    The point here, is that one nation can not invade another,
    and there are going to be those who do something about it-and those that dont. We are at a distinct disadvantage with a weak president who not only advertises his unwillingness to use force but also has squandered his political capital at home and abroad. An actual leader wouldn't even be in this mess=Obama's foreign policy has been appallingly bad.



    Wrong, this has happened many times.

    Didn't the USA invade Iraq in 2003 and aren't we still paying for this?

    Actually I think that it's his wife that owns the ketchup company, but that's pretty much the same thing.

    I wonder if he uses it on hot dogs instead of mustard. Does anyone have any insight on that?

    We would all probably be dead but at least he would have showed some balls.

    And if we were all dead we probably wouldn't be Monday-morning quarterbacking the Ukrainian kerfuffle right now.

    We might still be trying to negotiate our way into heaven.




    From what I've read it looks like the Ukraine is going to have a problem finding enough uniforms for the troops that it's mobilizing, forget about arming them.




    I predict that this will be a short war.

    Obama is 20 times the leader Putin is. Putin rules through fear. Obama rules through (horribly ill-advised) compromise.

    Russia has not invaded Ukraine. How can you invade a country where you already had 20+k troops, military bases and so on and there is an agreement for this?

    And ultimately what can the west do.. nothing that is with in a sane world. Of course we could nuke em, but why end the world now when we are having so much fun destroying it?

    No...this is good though. The EU members should be able to see what EU membership really means and what happens to a country when its citizens want closer ties to the EU and when one man wants closer ties to the USSrrrrrrrrrrrRussia. Not only will the Russians help them get what they REALLY want, but others will applaud it and say why it is really just for the best.

    Ah, "my guy" that I didn't even vote for the last time he was up for election.

    What sickens me is that the real wingnuts here seem like they're on Putin's side.

    You mean the one he was actually on ... in Vietnam ... facing enemy fire ... as opposed to ... most people here have done?

    It never ceases to amuse me how willing the conservatives who allegedly adore the military are so quick to denigrate the service of someone who doesn't slurp at the Republican tit.

    So you mean that thousands of Russian troops, tear off their insignias and pour out of their leased bases in Crimea and take over the government buildings and surround the small Ukrainian forces there was all part of a prior agreement between them?
