    Must be a true comparison, as everybody is twisted up tight about the truth being spoken. We have no business in their back yard, AND it is confrontational, belligerent, provocative, whatever.

    That crap about Crimea is not in touch with reality. Why in the hell should any country abandon its only good naval port? Neither will Russia, and I don't blame them.

    Americans are narrow minded and bellicose, pretty much what Ike warned against.

    Yeah must 'cause you say so. LOL

    I will agree we have no business there. With a part of the population loyal to Russia it would make dealing with the Vietcong a cakewalk.

    U.S. military trainers in Ukraine may destabilize situation: Kremlin | Reuters
    The Kremlin said on Friday the arrival of about 300 U.S. paratroopers in Ukraine to train Kiev's National Guard could destabilize the situation in the east of the country, where pro-Russian separatists are fighting Ukrainian government forces.
    Like Russia hasn't already destabilized the region.

    Except that we are not sending our troops illegally into Mexico to destabilize the Govt. What he is worried about is Russians killing Americans in the Ukraine, and he should be.

    The US and Canadian trainers will be nowhere near the strife torn Donbass region. After WWII, the Soviets constructed Red Army military bases almost exclusively in western and central Ukraine. These forward bases would act as a tripwire and a first line of defense against any Western forces approaching Russia proper. US/Canadian forces may occasionally visit Kyiv. Most will probably remain in the far western Lviv region.

    Well, we did send troops into Colombia to get the Panama Canal started, and the US troops in Mexico are only DEA, so I guess I know what you mean. Yes, we do stabilize governments all over the world, Central America to Iran and the Mideast.

    Any Americans killed by Russia over there will essentially "have it coming". Russia defends against foreign invaders, US troops do the invading. Life is funny.

    How could that possibly happen? There are no Russian soldiers or weapons in Ukraine. Putin said so.

    US/Canadian troops are in Ukraine at the invitation of the Ukrainian government.

    If US troops invaded Russia you would have a valid point. But Ukraine is not Russia.

    Yes, you're right--at the moment there are no Russian troops in Ukraine.

    Should the Americans keep poking the Bear, that may change suddenly.

    Then there should be no problem. Unless of course, Putin is lying again like he admitted about Crimea.

    There should be no problem unless the US maybe gets a bit too provocative. There should be no problem until the point is reached that Russia has decided it has had enough....
