    If you continue with that attitude then eventually it will be your skin but there will be no one left to help save it.
    Yes, just as the world has stood up to the United States as we've been about attacking countries, particularly the ones that have not harmed us.

    So you don't give a damn if Russia takes every country between the Urals and the Atlantic Ocean? How about the Eastern seaboard of the United States? Is there a point in time where you might be tempted to say 'enough is enough'?

    Never said arming Ukraine will get Russians to remove Putin.
    Putin`s corruption, endless war, crappy economy etc will be reasons to remove him.
    There's actually only one way Imperialistic Dictators can be removed from office. And that's feet first.

    Not sure what you think happened, perhaps you think they held a free vote in a referendum recognized by Ukraine, the UN and the majority of the world, then they went in is that your take on it?

    Ahh the 2 wrongs make a right argument.
    Sorry not only is that not a good argument, what country has the USA secretly invaded (remember Putin denied troops in Crimea for the longest time and had them remove their identifying insignia to do so) then annexed?
    Nope not even close to equivalent.

    Iraq was stopped from taking over Kuwait, then little Bush went in for regime change. Not a good plan but not comparable to secretly invading then annexing parts of another country.

    No they can hand it to a successor while alive though that is rare (Cuba) new head but same old repressive regime. Putin doesn't seem to have any obvious family member to pass the torch to though so he has to hold on for dear life, because well it is his life

    Nope, not suggesting that, I would prefer to see unjust aggression always criticised, even when its our own government as perpetrators. But that doesn't frame the Ukrainian crises in which Russia has been the one responding to Western intrigue in Ukraine.
