    Should we be concerned ?

If he thought he could get away with it, he'd carry out the threats.



    You would be the first one to jump to Putin's defense...



    Whether or not it was originally meant as a boast, there's no way that those countries that he talked about didn't take it as a threat, and considering his history, it's one they should take seriously.



    Bottom line, Putin knows he can get away with just about anything at this point. Honestly, how far could he push before we'd be forced to respond? I don't think Europe or America is going to go to war over Kiev or even Baltic NATO allies.
    Really now! Can you prove he threatened WW3?

    Patronizing Americans absolutely WILL NOT acknowledge such wrong doing, when pointing out a perceived wrong doing by others.

    Meanwhile Canada is conducting a massive boy scout gathering disguised as a Caribou hunt.

    And I have to disagree with the comparison to Iraq.

    I missed the part where Iraqi's have a historical connection to American way of life and culture, identify as "American" as was the case in Crimea/Ukraine.

    Further, Putin DID have a right to feel threatened, the CIA had stirred up **** in Kyiv and forced an illegal regime change; he had warned Bush that if the US tried to mess with Ukraine he "would tear her apart"...and now that the US did, he has.

    The comparison the Russians make is that if they had created havoc in a Canadian government,. forced a change to a pro-Russian administration and Canada was intending to leave NATO, of course the UIS would send in tanks, and planes, and yes, "boots on the ground" as the US would become very damn concerned about "the longest undefended border in the world."

    First off Crimea has a bigger connection to Russian way of life than american by far. For the love of his they were a part of Russia until Russia gave it to Ukraine in the 50s against most of the peoples will...

    The comparison to Iraq is simply to say if you can do it so can we. We invaded a sovereign nation unprovoked a little over ten years ago and set the precedent... Your analogy about Canada is apt, however it would never happen.... (Obviously)

    The Pentagon already has war plans for dealing with Canada. "War Plan Canadian Bacon". supposedly it's based on the movie, "Canadian Bacon."

    Yeah, saw that.

    We know of the plans, they were leaked by the CIA who wanted some good pot.

    We have counter-measures. All I will say is bring a bong, plenty of lighters and mittens, we'll supply the rest

    It's easy for Putin to talk tough when the entirety of western civilization is run by spineless liberals. He's just having a little fun. He has nothing to worry about.
