I'm trying to get our local council to declare the rain invalid. That'll stop it!
Major powers have 'spheres of influence', and we all remember how delightedly the US greeted the liberation of Cuba from its sphere. If the pro-EU groups in the west of the Ukraine want to destroy the elected government and bully the eastern provinces into submission, we can only observe that they are being a bit hopeful if they expect us to go to nuclear war to help them strut.
And why? Because you say so? Crimea has been independent or semi-independent for the overwhelming majority of its history, there is no more logic to its being a part of Ukraine then to its being a part of Russia, least of all if its inhabitants are against it. What sovereignty does Ukraine have over a people that don't consent to its rule? certainly no more than we had over the U.S, Ireland or India.
send in the blue helmets... Im sure Putin will tremble..
