Moreover, in one of your previous posts you mentioned that no ethnic tensions existed until the Russian intervention - you really need to stop watching YouTube videos and read some of Ukraine's history, old and modern.

Whats going on is very confusing. Its almost clear that the vast majority of whats going on in Kiev and western Ukraine is clearly Western friendly and that they want to be part of the EU and want to move on from the BS. What is not so clear is the eastern Ukranian area, espeially focusing on Crimeia. There have been reports that the Russian gov overan the vote in the Crimeian parliament to force them bascially move the vote to go to the people in a resolution for them to direclty vote on. This is also all speculation.

Yeah, right. One of the more horrific acts of the USA in WWII was not allowing German, Italian and Japanese reporters in the USA.
The claim of Russia is absurd. Every Russian reporter should be arrested as a spy if not wearing a uniform and as a POW if wearing a Russian uniform. Russia has gone to war again Ukraine and militarily invaded their country.
I am very aware of the history of Ukraine. And the history of that entire region for that matter (Black Sea, Balkans, Urals, etc.). I spent over a year on the ground their working hand in hand with many of the ethnic groups in that region. I had to study their history, and got first hand accounts and knowledge of their lives both historically and currently.
I didn't say that no ethnic tensions existed at all. I said:
Did you see the video of the Russian Special Forces blowing the doors down to the Crimean Parliament using explosives and storming the building? This occurred the same day that the guy that his party (pro-Russian party that got only 3% of the vote in the last election) was put in power (by Russia) and that guy was made the head of the Crimean Parliament.
There is proof of certain things that we can know as fact. Such as the video I mentioned, as well as other video and interviews with Russian soldiers admitting they are Russian.
Here's the bottom line...
No matter what has happened or is happening in Ukraine, Russia did not have the right to invade. Period.
Put troops on the border? Sure. That would be prudent for any government to do. But invade? Hell no.
Beau, you think that the US has greater concerns in the Ukraine than Russia?
