HotIgneous Intruder: Mrtraveler01: HotIgneous Intruder: Sudetenland!President Peace Prize flummoxed!The west stands by, paralyzed, as another dictator makes his move!So Obama instead should've done...Send a couple of unmarked Airborne divisions, supported by every operational A-10 Warthog in the U.S. inventory to Ukraine.
DamnYankees: I just checked Wikipedia, and the map of Ukraine still includes Crimea.
The Bestest: Colin O'Scopy: Copypasta to the rest of those conservaTards for their reality check.Well, half of it is wrong.2. The Russian people of Crimea constitute well over 90% of the population.Less than 60%.3. Russia has a Navy base in Crimea and is well within its rights within the agreement with Crimea and theUkraine and international law to protect that base. Troop movements are common in this regionWhen were the -Russian- bases in danger? I seem to recall it was pro-Russian forces surrounding Ukrainian bases, not the other way around.7. We threw a fit. Did not seek a security council vote in the UN. Russia of course holds veto power and for good reason in the same way we hold that power.There was a UNSC resolution denouncing the referendum as illegal. Vote was 13 for, Russia veto, China abstained.9. Without any evidence of poorly run election, Crimea voted to join Russia where one choice was annexation. The other choice was to follow the already established law of 1992 which had been violated by Ukraine. Such election results are highly possible and plausible given the history, ethnic makeup, and political makeup of Crimea. We again threw a fit.The choice was "Join Russia" or "-Restore- the 1992 Constitution (which had been abolished)" which had language that gave Crimea full autonomy (as opposed to being a semi-autonomous region of Ukraine as stated in the then current constitution). There was no status quo option. The referendum itself was illegal under the Ukraine constitution.
IamKaiserSoze!!!: National Geographic, Wikipedia surrender Crimea to RussiaWADR, they were actually just behind Obama and the Farklibs in doing this.
