    It would be in Russia's interest to have a stable friendly Ukraine. Putin has worked towards the exact opposite in his invasion and annexation of Crimea and his attempts to annex eastern Ukraine.

    I said it earlier in this thread, part of the problem is that people in the US look at the problem like a US person would look at how Russia would view the problem instead of how a Russian person views the problem. There is a difference.

    Putin wants to annex or frighten neighboring countries into submission.
    Doesn't matter where you are from that is wrong.

    Like I said, Russia is not going to leave Ukraine just like the US is not going to leave the Middle East. It's not going to happen.

    Yes it will but probably not while Putin is still alive

    Just as there is no one who can make the US give Texas back to Mexico, there is simply no one who can make them leave. No one. That is true now, that will be true after Putin is gone. It's not going to happen.

    I wonder has anyone in Europe or the US thought out what's going to happen in Ukraine when the Greece like conditions take firm hold. I think it's going to greatly empower the ultra-nationalist, Nazi like elements in Ukrainian society. That could mean bad news for the EU.

    Texas is not a sovereign nation.

    Some of the Texans seem to think it is, but it isn't.

    What? Texas isn't a sovereign nation? Them be fighting words buddy!!!

    The point is this Texas was indeed part of Mexico at one time. There was a fight and that was the end of it. Old Santa Claus Anna was busy with some cute chick when Sam Houston sneaked up on him. Texas isn't going back to Mexico. There simply is no one, short of the Supreme Lord, who can make that happen.
