Fark_Guy_Rob: Crimea declared independence.Just like Texas did from Mexico.Just like the US did from England.Just like the South did from the North.I don't see much difference. Might makes right. In none of these cases did the entire population agree. In none of these cases were there not a complex political system with all sorts of interested parties standing to win or lose depending on the outcome. The South lost the war, so we celebrate that they were denied independence. In the other cases, freedom won out, so we celebrate that too. Whoever wins throws a party and writes the history books.As far as Russia is concerned, it is removing unwelcome foreign troops.As far as the Ukraine is concerned, it's an invasion.Just like the US declaration of independence was a small terrorist uprising fueled by their conspiring enemies - the French.
