    MOSCOW — Russia signaled for the first time on Friday that it was prepared to annex Crimea, significantly intensifying its confrontation with the West over the political crisis in Ukraine and threatening to undermine a system of respect for national boundaries that has helped keep the peace in Europe and elsewhere for decades.

    Leaders of both houses of Russia’s Parliament said that they would support a vote by Crimeans to break away from Ukraine and become a region of the Russian Federation, ignoring sanctions threats and warnings from the United States and other countries that a vote for secession would violate Ukraine’s constitution and international law.

    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Not worth what, though, that's the question. There's literally dozens of various options.

    When presented with the fact that the chant is actually a neo-Nazi/neo-Baderovtsy chant, instead of addressing it you came up with the two idiotic statements above.

    So, maybe instead of posting one sentence bs statements, you would work on not posting vids and pics with false/made-up "headlines".

    Fallen.
    The chanting video was my bad, I meant to say Ukrainians, and THAT RUSSIAN MILITARY UNIT IS IN UKRAINE. Recap that.

    I wonder if he'd accept the US making that kind of argument lol
    It's not an invasion. Working to topple an elected government is a clear violation of a countries sovereignty, and IL.

    If Obama's incompetent bumbling and lack of knowledge keep us out of this, the American people will rightfully cheer the result.
    Laughing, you are NOTHING if not CONsistent!

    Even when President Obama does the correct thing the CONs have got to call it incompetent...

    If only BushII could have been this sort of incompetent instead of the incompetent that filled military cemeteries and hospitals.

    The more I learn about the situation the more I think we should stay out of it. Much like with Syria, it is not nearly as black and white as it is sometimes portrayed. It appears that much of the conflict was caused by EU ultimatums and the USA's political interference. The people of Crimea are culturally Russian and many on the pro-EU side are anti-semetic nationalist fascists.

    It never, ever is. When someone tells you something about geopolitics is simple, you know they're either a liar or an idiot.

    Why do you think Russians are removing identifying marks when they invade?
