    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?
    Well Google says it is and it did vote for independence form Russia in 1991. The issue with a referendum is that it cannot be legitimate at this point.

    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.
    Improve our image? We're neither respected or feared...how's that an improvement?

    We don't need to be feared. And our foreign policy doesn't deserve respect, lol.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Well, certainly if we're not going to do anything when they're crossed.

    If your referring to Syria, Obama shouldn't have painted it, but after the fact, there was nothing he could do. He was prevented.
