    It doesn't because it's not America's call. We already spend a lot on our military and it gets us nowhere. We should be focusing on our own domestic issues.

    I told you the people here would begin to correctly identify you, and they are.

    With all due respect, the only person who seems to care is yourself.

    I don't even know what you mean by "identify." What is my "identity?" What am I suppose to be? You don't explain yourself.

    ...and Eisenhower warned us all against the growing power of the military/industrial complex. He understood war better than most...and he hated it. It's time America took a history lesson in why Eisenhower hated war.
    Eisenhower made his farewell/MIC speech on January 17, 1961, a mere twelve days before I was born. I have always been a bit miffed as to why Ike signed off on Operation AJAX; his words from January 1961 do not back him up on his actions, in that regard. Just another POTUS that talks **** & does something else .................

    Yeah, that "vote" happened after Russia already took over Crimea. And we all know how fair and democratic Russia's elections are. Not surprisingly, "the legitimacy of the referendum has been questioned by the international community on both legal and procedural grounds."

    So bull**** "vote" aside, what gives Russia the right to take over other countries?

    There is nothing showing that Russia's elections are any less fair than the elections here in the US. Regardless, Crimea is naturally Russian and voted to reunite with Russia. Is that quote from Wikipedia? I don't trust Wikipedia.

    I don't think Russia has that right, but neither do I think that Russia has done that. Regardless, this isn't about Russia, but the United States.

    And the United States should not be baby-sitting the entire world.

    Do you agree?

    Sure, because challengers to the incumbent Presidential candidate in America are always getting poisoned and arrested, too.

    Tough. Russia invaded Crimea on February 27, and "voted" to reunite with Russia on March 16.

    I don't think Russia has that right,
    You just said, "Crimea should go to Russia..." and used a bull**** vote that nobody believes to support it.

    but neither do I think that Russia has done that.
    You don't think Russia invaded and took over Crimea? Hahahahahaha...okay.

    There's nothing showing that Putin has personally had somebody killed or poisoned. As for Russia, the Ukrainian government fell to a coup and thus, the current government isn't legitimate. But that said, Russia doesn't have the right to invade anybody. Even so, Crimea's vote should still be respected.

    Please, could you address the topic of the thread?

    The Russian vote in Crimea was held under Russian military occupation.
