    Crimea has voted on this before and its gone both ways, very closely.

    But the Russian military invades, occupies the countries, brings ballots already pre-marked voting to join Russia (according to the White House), and then announce they won the election with 95% of the vote.

    And you say "WOW! EVERYONE IN CRIMEA HAS VOTED TO JOIN RUSSIA!"

    That it is a 95% of those who voted is self proving it is a total fraud.

    I think that the alternative, supporting the AQ, MB Al Nusra terrorists he's fighting is worse.

    And somehow I think that if the US invaded a country and held a referendum that resulted in OVER NINETY FIVE PERCENT OF THE VOTERS supporting something the US supported, you'd rightly say that was complete bull****. 95%? And you accept that as real?

    It could be even as high as 60%. Maybe 65%, in some crazy world. But NINETY FIVE? lol, Monte: if you said you'd think it was legit if it was pro-US, you're a liar.

    If Albania send troops in Kosovo (which they do have an agreement, smth like Russia and Crimea had) and there is a referendum for Kosovo to join Albania, I do not see how the Kosovo people would felt threatened.
    Crimeans always felt Russians. Why is such a surprise.

    I expect better. When did the Russians become a bunch of amateurs? If you're gonna rig an election, at least make it believable. 75/25 is where it's at.
    Like I said, had it been 25/75 you guys would be all over it. You just don't like the results. Anyway, it doesn't matter. This is Putins show, US/EU involvement and support of the violent overthrow of the Ukrainian government, gave Putin all the legitimacy he needs.

    lol, is that what you'd say if the US did it? "Anyway, it doesn't matter". lol

    Can you try to be consistent?
