    People are engaged in the attempt to control. Your posting here is an attempt to control, whether you like or admit it. Control implies superiority.

    More precisely, it's the people that control the programming on TV. But I understand what you mean.

    Exceptionalism is a code word for racism and supremacism, and I mean the racism and supremacism of people who control the American foreign policy.

    Does USA not invade countries that are thousands of miles away from American shores?

    BTW, the Crimean Peninsula was never part of the Ukraine, it was part of the Russian Empire.

    I think that the population of the Crimean peninsula has the right to decide about their future in a referendum.

    This was possible in the former Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia, why should this not be possible in the former Ukraine?

    Obama threatens to

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I think the time for warnings is over. The article says they are considering what steps to take. Why don't they already KNOW what steps to take? Why are no contingency plans for this in place already? If our intelligence didn't see this coming? Why not?

    I blame our intelligence community. We spend billions​ of dollars to get a heads up on this type action. What happened?
    I'm sure our intelligence saw it coming, it's been no secret what Putin's agenda has been. G.W. Bush knew why didn't Obama ?

    Anyone on the DP shouldn't have been surprised, there are numerous Russian news sources on the internet and Putin has more than a few propaganda websites up and running. You just have to be extra careful of getting infected with virus and malware. But it's all there for any one to see.

    I suppose Obama's just going to not allow Putin to visit Disneyland the next time he visits America.

    Come to think of it we tried that with Nikita Khrushchev when he came to America, we didn't allow him to visit the happiest place on Earth and it only caused the Cold War to escalate.

    Putin continues to play chess while Obama plays checkers.

    Yes, Crimea is NOT Ukraine!

    I know that Americans are not the best educated people in the world, but the Soviet Republic, that was called Ukrainian SSR, was bigger than the province Ukraine of the former Tsarist Russia.

    Nikita Khrushchev was the one who just added the Russian Crimean Peninsula to the Ukrainian SSR, because he was a Ukrainian himself, but he did not expect that the USSR will eventually collapse.

    After the collapse of the USSR the Russian population of the Crimea became foreigners in their own land, which was part of Russia till 1954.

    Today this population is using the opportunity and is deciding in a referendum about their future.

    Why should this internal Russian problem be a concern to the USA?

    Some could be all but one...that's the way haters work.

    Funny that even 13% of Americans consider the US the greatest threat to world peace.

    Haters lol. More like observers.

    Probably they're the ones that are trying to improve our image, they need to be joined, not encouraged to leave. Funny that because you don't like us being told to cool our jets, you're right and they're all wrong.
