    Serious economic sanctions can hurt, and he's at risk. He's also at risk for losing a seat on the UN Security Council and the veto that goes with it.

    How is he at risk of losing Russia's permanent seat on the Security Council as enshrined in the UN Charter exactly? The UN Charter makes it impossible for any permanent member from the Security Council to be removed without its consent. Even an amendment to the UN Charter cannot pass unless all members of the UN Security Council approve it. The only hope for any UN condemnation of Russia is to pass a measure on the General Assembly and that would have no real effect even it were able to pass. No move on the table allows for any binding action against Russia at the UN level.

    I can see a certain similarity between the German take over Sudetenland and Russia annexing Crimea. The difference is that Putin does not have such an disgusting ideology as Germany had during the 1930-ies.

    The US started the Ukrainian problem, Russia is responding. The US covertly supported the violent overthrow of the elected Ukrainian government, the protesters fired upon his caravan as he was fleeing, seized control of the military and declared independence, and the US finds this the legitimate government, yeah, same old same old we've been watching for sometime now, only Russia's starting to push back. China too in their own way.

    You can ignore Russia as they had ignored us for so long, or you can stop them and force them out. (But good luck with that)
