They will be welcomed as liberators.

Crimea a river.

You messed up the pun.

Crimean Tatars, the historic hosts of the land who make up 12 percent of the island's population and stand strongly for Crimea remaining part of Ukraine, didn't put up any visible resistance Saturday.

RIP if you're not careful!

What, exactly, do you want the US to do about it?
 
2014-03-01 05:54:52 PM  
How does the United States credibly object to this when the United States congress voted to authorize President Bush to invade a country half a world away from the United States.

/reap what you sow...

I'm going to guess he wants exactly the opposite of whatever Obama does.

they're reactionary. they don't take positions before Obama does.

Crimea is gone, but we should make sure Putin knows if Kiev is threatened there will be a cruise missile with his name on it.

I don't know, yet. Did you expect the speech to work?

Nope, and it'll be the women who suffer the most. As usual.

There will be international outrage over all the rape and murder that will ensue.

And not a damn thing will change or be done about it.
 
2014-03-01 06:03:10 PM  
You mean like the mostly-Russian populace of Crimea asked them to?

And really, you're surprised that the Russians want to make sure they don't lose their main port on the Black Sea?

I'm no fan of Pooty-Poot, but this is not nearly as big an issue as people are whining about.

I'm singing in Russian at a concert tomorrow in DC, so I'm getting a kick out of these developments.

well the Ukraine had been firing repeatedly on Russian jets flying UN sanctioned air patrols and has refused to follow proscriptions levied against them by the UN

Putey doesn't give 2 farks about obamas warning, russians never fear strongly worded letters.
 
2014-03-01 06:04:54 PM  
Putin, you fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders - The most famous of which is "never get involved in a land war in Asia" - but only slightly less well-known is this!

Oh never mind, that was the one.
 
2014-03-01 06:05:03 PM  
Well at least Obama gave him a call and they talked it over.

That's because most can't read.
 
2014-03-01 06:05:44 PM  
Eh, it's in their backyard and they have a huge naval base there. I'd be surprised if they didn't move troops in. We'd do the same thing in that situation.

More importantly, was President Obama answering his phone when this was happening. I was assured he wouldn't be.

ZAZ: Crimea is gone, but we should make sure Putin knows if Kiev is threatened there will be a cruise missile with his name on it.


that's probably the best thing we can do. We all knew Russia wanted Crimea because of the strategic value to them. Hopefully, they don't give a damn about Kiev. Hopefully Kiev isn't stupid enough to try and take them on.
 
2014-03-01 06:05:54 PM  
We need to stay as far away from this as possible. Let Russia and the Ukraine have it out, keep it from spreading, and do nothing else. This is straight from the Bad Old Days, and I for one don't really want to get nuked. Except for Philadelphia, they're fair game.

As long as they respect the sovereignty of the region, I can't complain. If they try to claim it as Russian soil, then I have an issue.

When Russia hasn't had a warm water port, it desperately wanted one.  When it has one, it wants another.  I can't blame them, but condoning the actions to get one is another thing entirely.  These events, however, are some upon which I feel I do not need to hold an empassioned opinion.

Ukraine is in Europe.

Blood bath.
 
2014-03-01 06:07:22 PM  
This won't end well?  Frankly, it will end just fine.  Russia will take what it wants or doesn't want and the rest of the world will spout tough words for a few days but ultimately do nothing.

Bad news: Another goddamn war.

Would we? Would we really invade Cuba?

One of these things is not like the other.

If this is your biggest concern in this particular scenario, you may want to widen your blinders just a tad.

Sooo, this thread yesterday when they took over the airports isn't considering that an invasion?

The Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances.

MisterLoki: *sigh*


Yeah. All I can say is that I hope there is some type of grand bargain with Russia about Syria regarding the navel bases but I think that is wishful thinking. I think Putin is mucho macho and this spells trouble long-term.
 
2014-03-01 06:08:27 PM  
Oh we've gotten to an exciting bit in the stage play. Now more of the audience will pay attention instead of sticking popcorn in their noses. Some will become experts.
 
2014-03-01 06:08:30 PM  
I hate when this happens.

/I agree, we have no business in their internal affairs.  We already have our dirty mitts in enough peoples pies already to go out on another limb.

Ukraine is in Europe.


Fun fact: the Ural mountains, which are west of (The) Ukraine, divide Europe and Asia.
One of the few things I recall from sixth grade.

So for Sarah Palin.... do we start calling calling her "Nostradumbass"... or is just a blind squirrel thing?
 
2014-03-01 06:10:08 PM  
Finally time to kick some ruskies.
 
2014-03-01 06:10:25 PM  
I suspect a sternly-worded letter with strenuous objections is on its way.
