    Ukraine decided to no longer be under the bullies claws and turned to freedom in EU. The EU and USA may have helped after such a decision was made. This is not enough grounds to annex Ukrainian territories like Russia is doing.
    Sorry, it was the EU/US that threw a hissy fit when Yanukovych backed out of negotiations and went with Russia. I think you're mistaken about Russian resolve in this. Just hope you all over there are ready to pay the price to back Russia up.

    I can only hope that in addition to the ongoing material loss and damage to the Russian economy that Russian intervention brings painful casualties.

We have some territories that weren't annexed but also added to the sphere of influence. Puerto Rico and Midway are examples. But we haven't done any of that lately. What is it that causes you to critize the U.S. rather than to support and defend it?

    So what have you got? Just saying so doesn't make it so.

    NATO isn't doing anything of the sort. It's up to a country if they want to be part of NATO. Bullcocky!

    I'm not going to be supporting hypocrisy. You forgot Hawaii. And the Louisiana Purchase. Buying something from somebody that doesn't even own it. The native occupants weren't consulted at all, and manifest destiny is manifest thievery and genocide.

    It is up to Ukraine to decide with whom it wants to go. It choose EU/US, and that is it, Russia should now learn to live without Ukraine.

    Why would we care to back Russia the bully up?!

    Precisely. And Yanukovych cut off negotiations with the EU and had signed deals with Russia. This implemented a US/EU supported coup, a violent overthrow of the Ukrainian government, and installation of a pro-Western government, immediately (conveniently) recognised by the West. This is fact, and it doesn't matter whether or not you accept it. Russia called bull****, and they seem prepared to pay the price to maintain a buffer between them and the EU. Hopefully, the EU won't push it to the point of all out war.
