As much as I'd like to see that area peacefully resolve the problems it has and not see Russia use this as an opportunity to violently extend its power over the Ukraine, I just don't see this as a big deal for America, as far as that goes.

Unless asked to help, it might be better to just sit this one out and wring our hands about it.

1. He's not going to all of the sudden decide to start listening to the peanut gallery
2. He could come to the same conclusion and do the exact same thing the peanut gallery wants, in the exact same language they want, and these tards would be in front of a camera criticzing him in seconds.

Senate Republicans demand that inept President Obama get directly involved in Ukrainian revolution so that Senate Republicans can demand that power mad President Obama stop interfering in Ukrainian revolution.

Oh, come on now guys, it's not his big, ole black finger you want to see him wag vigorously at Putin, now is it?

Republicans want to lick Putin's taint. He's just what they want: a manly man. As long as he's that, why they'll. do anything he wants

The GOP sure does employ a wide global stance, don't they? Until push comes to flush and the shiat hits the fan.

"They want to be Western," he said on CBS' "Face the Nation." "That's what this whole hundreds of thousands in the square was all about. They don't want to be Eastern."


Jesus Christ, is every single Republican required to think like a farking child? If it can't be summed up in a phrase that fits on a bumper sticker, it's obviously too confusing for these assholes.

No, Johnny, all the protesters do not want the same thing for the country... Some of them are quite right wing. Some of them are left wing and everything in between. They were united in their desire to see the President removed from power, but now that he's gone, they're going to have to work it out amongst themselves and what's left of the government.

Yup. Some of them are very nationalistic although most do want to be more aligned with the EU and less with Russia. 

And what *exactly* is Obama supposed to do? Also, WTF with the western/eastern crap? I swear most American politicians couldn't navigate foreign policy deftly if their lives depended on it.

They want to triangulate against Obama with Putin as their ally. The right wing knows they have a friend in Putin.

Well, in the Western part of the country they do, but the Eastern portions of the country and many in the lower classes seems to favor closer ties with Russia. There are reports of many places in the East flying Russian flags currently...*shrug* Who knows for sure. Someone on the news this morning said that it could either end up with a loose confederation or a civil war.

The reality is nothing like how McCain is describing it here, at any rate.

Yes, the best thing for the Ukrainian people right now would be to turn this into a proxy pissing contest between the USA and Russia.

One thing's for sure, in this situation (or any other), whatever he does or doesn't do, he should have done or not done the other thing instead.

So basically, the half that Europe will get after the country breaks up is the half that's poor? Wonderful, the E.U. will be so pleased. Another country to bail-out. About the only reason I can imagine the E.U. going along with this is that the U.S. forces them to.

In completely unrelated news, check out this video of a CIA agent who was just caught in Ukraine.

Pretty much. They'll call him a wimp up until he says even the slightest critical thing about Russia, and then they'll start pissing their pants and accusing him of saber-rattling against the Red Menace.

Let the EU deal with it for now. The economic subtext is mostly about gas and oil rights to Western Europe anyway. They're the ones with the big dogs in the fight. Best that the US stay out of it politically for now, support humanitarian relief where we can, and try to act as mediator later.

Last thing we want to do is get involved in a land war in Asia... er... the Ukrainian steppe.

Where have you been? It's far too late for the US to stay out of it; the US has spent 5 billion dollars on Ukraine! (Google it...)

Haven't you heard this audio recording in which senior US officials are planning who will be the next leader of Ukraine? No talk about "democracy" or letting Ukrainians decide there.

It's far too late for the US to stay out of it; the US is involved very deeply and has been for years.

And really, that's the only way that any revolution gets any sort of success - revolutions go nowhere unless they're supported by a major world power. If you see any revolution in any country today that's actually succeeding, it means that there's a major foreign power manipulating the strings.

Putin, who is eight inches shorter than Obama, excels at the bullshiat photo opportunities Reagan and Bush loved.  Never saw a photo opportunity they couldn't pass up, because their followers ate that shiat up.

So, to the constant chorus of Republican's complaining about Executive overreach intruding into the role of the Legislature, we can now add....
