    You have anything you'd like to debate regarding Russia and the current crisis, or should we wrap this little exchange?

    If you don't like what has happened in the Ukraine, You need to get over there and change it.

    I predict that the Ukraine will not control Crimea anytime soon.

    Don't take my word for this, just wait and see.

    What a gas. You apparently don't understand the purpose of a political debate forum, friend. That's where we discuss things like foreign policy and geopolitics.

    #1- I'm not your friend, I don't even know you.

    #2- if you don't like what has happened in the Ukraine you're going to be unhappy for a long time.

    Aww come on buddy ole pal. Don't be mad.

    There's nothing to get worked up about. We're here discussing politics because, supposedly, that's fun. In this case, I think Obama is doing a terrible job and he needs to grow a set and deal with the Russians from a position if strength, rather than a bent over position with his cheeks spread wide. I take it you disagree?

    Come on shrub nose, don't be rude. Nothing is coming out of my nose except air every couple of seconds. But I hardly see what that has to do with the Ukrainian crisis...

    Sounds like McCain, and/or some of his pay masters are losing a pretty penny over this...

    Damn shame too. Imagine, going through all that trouble to over throw a government and set up a puppet regime and Putin goes and pulls this?!?!?!?

    Re: U.S. - Russia, who wins?

    It depends on what you count as winning.

    Watching this unfold and the lack of action by the USA and NATO, plus other events around the world, it seems clear this was a done deal ahead of time.

    Stalin did not totally eradicate Muslims in Crimea. Mostly, but not entirely. And Crimea has huge resources that the Ukraine is dependent upon for true independent status.

    The USA has its interest containment campaigns of Muslims in Afghanistan and Iraq - although we cut a deal with China over Iraqi oil. We still have Kuwait's oil.

    Muslim radicalism is a common concern of the USA, Western Europe and Russia. Russia now has it's foot on the throat of not only Crimean Muslims, but also now on Ukraine itself and the Muslims there - plus all of Crimea's resources (preventing Ukraine from having it thus perpetually subservient to Russia.)

    We have the resources of Afghanistan and somewhat our foot on the throats of Muslims in that region.

    We have a pretty good hold on Kazakhstan, the huge resources rich country on Russia's Southern border and we've paid of their leadership pretty well, but Russia probably wants more of a cut there and probably more involvement to insure the Muslims there are under control.

    With worldwide Muslim/Islamic faith population predicted to soon reach 1/4th of the entire world's population and significantly outnumbering white people, grabbing as much resources in Muslim countries and a stranglehold on Muslim governments is the common goal of the USA, Western Europe and Russia.

    All the worlds about Crimea are all just diversions, with it understood next month no one will care any since the attention span of the public/mob is about the same as that of a fruit fly.

    Everything is going exactly according to plan. Between the USA and Russia the Muslim population of the Ukraine is now entirely under control.

    White people still control the world and aren't planning on giving that up. Not to a bunch of dirty poor Muslims anyway. Deals can be cut with Asians giving them their cut of the Muslim world, like giving China Iraq's oil. The USA gets Afghanistan's oil, plus we get Kuwait's oil - a country we carved out of nothing. Russia gets the resources of Crimea and a permanent stranglehold on Ukraine.

    What's not to like if you are Western and white about this? White people once again prove they rule the world!

    You explained prior your view that people should each be to their own ethnicity.

    Yes, you white people will continue to rule all but Asian for some time to come and will continue to keep your foot on the throats of Muslims. You seem old, so you probably won't live to see the payback when it comes and it will likely be nuclear. Nuclear proliferation throughout the Muslim world is a predictable future now. They really have no option but to do so.
