    The slide into irrelevance continues. I'm just glad it has a touch of fascist sympathizing chic to go with it. Typical paleocon nonsense.

    The only thing Ron Paul ever slammed is his thumb up his ass.

    Being the non-interventionist that he is, should we be really surprised? What type of intervention ISN'T an act of war to him?

    According to that nutbag, other nations can do anything but if the US so much as sneezes it's an "act of war".

    At this point, one would think everyone is aware of his lunacy. Yet, some people still take his comments on foreign policy as legit.


    He and his son exist on the backs of idiots. Obviously, they know it. They're just manipulating stupid gullible people and providing fodder for wannabe jihadists.

    RP is right, short of going all out war against Russia there's nothing we can do- let them have Eastern Ukraine, the rest of the country will turn to the West for its future. I think Putin is a thug but half the Ukraine is pretty much Russianized.

    Someone is going to have to explain this more to me as I don't seem to get it. Crimea voted to leave Ukraine and join Russia. That's their right, no? I am sure there is some behind the scenes going on here, I just don't know enough about the situation I guess.

    I'll put it in a context for you, closer to home. Here in Canada, the Province of Quebec has been talking separation for a few decades now and actually had several votes on the matter, which failed. Our Supreme Court ruled several years back that a vote on a Province separating now has certain rules that must be followed before it's legit - as well as certain consequences, such as assuming share of the national debt, creation of their own currency, etc.

    Now, if the Quebec Provincial government (insert Crimea's Provincial government for context) decided to ignore the federal government and supreme court's rules for a referendum authorizing separation and held such a vote within a week or two, the vote to separate would have no legal basis or grounds for being recognized as legitimate. Add to that, if US militias - quasi US military troops - flooded into the Province of Quebec and managed the vote, threatened the populace, and the US Congress passed a law authorizing US intervention in the vote and the US President talked up Quebec joining the US, you would then have a situation similar to what's happening in Crimea and the Ukraine these days.
