    It is depressing how high they think the pictures-to-words ratio needs to be for their target readership. Of course, all the ones with attractive young women are at the top too.

    I'm not convinced. I think this was about pro-Russians in Crimea taking advantage of the disruption in Kiev. Putin probably didn't really want this to kick off though once it did there was only really one way he could go with it.

    Next we'll be seeing photo bombs from Crimea.

    Here is one photo.



    And here is the exit question. The Russian people living in Ukrainian Crimea feel greater allegiance to their Russian culture and to Russia than they do to their fellow countrymen, so what prevents a similar scenario (secession instead of annexation) from taking place in the Southwestern US?
    Hey, she's cute. What website is she listed on looking for an American husband?

    As desperate as you are

    Right now, leadership, or rather the lack of it. But then again, I guess the lack of leadership is something we have in common with the rest of the US at the moment.
