    But everyone here seems to take responsibility about the actions that liberated former Yugoslavians that were ruled by Russian style oppression, but you?

    Stop lying. You haven't heard my personal feelings on the breakup of Yugoslavia. All I said was that the US/NATO/IMF worked post Tito for the breakup.r

    Britain was perhaps one of the most benign and benevolent empires that ever existed leaving knowledge, political systems and infrastructure that benefitted billions in its wake. Thats not to say that no blood was shed nor miscalculations and mistakes happen but it has certainly no moral equivalency with the despotic tyrants of the 20th and 21st century whatsoever. If you had a clue you would know this but by all means get your facts from revisionist opinion pieces that fit your warped worldview instead
    Laugh my ass off, speak of arrogance and denial.

    Asking only the Russian minorities about what is going on there and leaving it to them having a say about the whole story is biased.
    OMG, where have we seen that play before.

    But you have not heard of my personal feelings neither, yet you claim that I am being "hateful."

    Really ? You are just here to trash the West and more specifically the US in any way you can. You don't really care a jot about the fate of the people of Ukraine. They represent for you just another situation that you think can cynically exploit in order to facilitate that end nothing more

    Americans are idiots.

    They change fears quicker than the GOP changes front-running primary candidates.

    In the last 12 months the "top threat" has been, alternately, Iran, China, Russia, ISIS, Barack Obama, Ebola, and/or cyberwarfare.

    If China invades Taiwan tomorrow then all of a sudden the media will be reporting that China is our biggest threat and the sheep will believe it, and if the week after there's a Measles outbreak in Peoria and the media shifts fire people will think that infectious disease is our biggest threat.

    If our government does ANYTHING based on what "people" think we're doomed.

    There's a reason the Founding Fathers didn't give the "huddled masses yearning to breath free" the right to vote.

    Our government is beholden to a nation of people whose homes are underwater, who struggle to find minimum wage jobs, and who can't calculate compound interest rates, if they even know what those are.

    Americans are the biggest threat to America.

    Everything else is slight of hand.

    “Now it is not good for the Christian’s health to hustle the Aryan brown,
    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”
