Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
My concern is not that the U.S. is taking a lesser role as "world policeman," but that it is reducing its power in a deliberate fashion (budget proposals are deliberate measures) and that such development undermines its capacity to protect its interests and strategic allies. Neoisolationism, if it actually takes hold, won't bolster American security. Yet, at least at this vantage point, there is no strong counterproposal originating in either house of Congress. If this remains the case, the big (and in my view, unwise) defense cuts will take place with perhaps some cosmetic changes that will do little to impact the world's evolving balance of power in which the U.S. is on a trajectory for making a lesser contribution. That path won't be very comforting for the nation's NATO allies or strategic Asian partners.Yes, there is a great uncertainty now that the American people have questioned whether they want to continue being 'the policeman of the world', which allows those have complained on the issue a glimpse of how the world might be without them. I have little confidence in NATO, though hope to be wrong, and of course the UN is of no value at all.
There were maybe a couple of thousands of "protesters" in Kiev, and there are millions of voters who never accepted this terrorism.
What would American government do, if "protesters" were shooting policemen on the Capitol Hill?
Are you kidding?
No, Ukraine does not exist any more, because the elected government was replaced by force, and this was illegal according to the laws of former Ukraine.
In a similar situation American government would act according to the Patriot Act and declare a state of war with internal terrorists.
The Russian population of the Russian Ukraine will vote on 16th March and end the Ukrainian occupation of the Russian Crimean Peninsula (which has lasting since 1954) will end, Crimean Peninsula will be again part of Russia, because that is the will of the population of the Crimean Peninsula.
Who cares about your opinion or the opinion of Barak Obama?
And I can understand these people, they are fed up with the racism of Western Ukrainians that is supported by the Western powers.

I'll bet that Putin is really scared now.
