What is tat and where can I exchange it for the other thing?

They are sanctioning nine people, but fox only told us who three are. Because reporting six names is hard.

Just as Vladimir Putin's government shrugged off U.S. sanctions earlier in the week, so did the Americans targeted by Moscow.

"I guess this means my spring break in Siberia is off, my Gazprom stock is lost, and my secret bank account in Moscow is frozen," McCain quipped in a statement. "Nonetheless, I will never cease my efforts on behalf of the freedom, independence, and territorial integrity of Ukraine, including Crimea."


What's beautiful about this is that the two leading Republicans affected have absolutely no choice but to play off Putin's sanctions as meaningless and inept, which suddenly makes all the previous gushing "oh, Putin, so strong," Fox commentary all the more delicious. Putin, master troll.

The Global Trollmaster Putin is out-trolling his Homobama left and right.  While failed troll 0bummer is stuck with Poe's Law, the brilliant Putin is moving the goalposts all over Crimea.  I predict that soon, Putin will show a lot of concern for Obozo's feckless and weak leadership.   Putin is pro-circumcision, pro-public breastfeeding, anti-tattoo, and he's sick and tired of the unique and precious snowflakes of Gen Y asking their helicopter parents for Ocongo Bongo to impose sanctions.

There's nothing Russia can do to make any sanctions they have against us stick. In terms of sanctions, we hold greater power than they.

Russia is like our 17th largest trade partner. We trade more stuff with Italy than we do with Russia.

We are Russia's 5th largest trade partner.

That says pretty much everything you need to know as far as our role in this is concerned. If Europe, especially Germany, can step up with similar sanctions, and make credible threats to fast-track alternative energy sources that would make Russian fossil fuel imports less important, it will cost Russia a hell of a lot to hold onto some broke-ass former territories that are just going to leach off of them anyway.

Russia's economy is shaky. And they just gave the West an excuse to fark them up even more. It's classic "never interrupt your enemy when they're making a mistake."

It's easy to play chicken when you're driving a monster truck.

Obama is implementing the sanctions in a very smart way. He's making life harder for a few individuals instead of all Russians. I hope that's enough. I like Russians. They're like my redneck cousins; A little different, but really friendly and fun, and they give you enough time to get a video camera before saying, "Hey, watch this!"

China:  So let me get this straight.  You want to establish that precedent that a nation can forcibly annex another country's territory based on language?
Russia:  Right!  So, are you with us?
China:  There are a lot of Russian speakers in China.
Russia:  So?
China:  Well?
Russia:  Oh come on, we would never do that to you.  Besides, you've been sending Han Chinese across our border for years.
China:  ...
Russia:  ...
China: ...
Russia:  So anyway, it was good talking to you.
China:  You too!  Say hello to the Cossacks for me!

Do not have the fearing. I am having the communication with both sides in the issue of this. I am seeing the one side and the other side. I do not wish for being the judge but will do this.

Russia, I have seen your dash cam videos, and removing them can only make you look better.

Now I need to read TFA.

Well instead of backing them like usual they abstained in the UN vote regarding Crimea. China and India are staying neutral.

italie: Explain to me why I should care? Didn't like 90% of the population want to be Russian anyway?


It wasn't the most legit referendum, you know, Russian troops at the polling stations. It was a land grab and it has caused a huge rift in East/West relations. You can always go back to watching Duck Dynasty if you don't care, but when it comes to geopolitics it matters greatly.

italie: Explain to me why I should care? Didn't like 90% of the population want to be Russian anyway?


90% of the counted vote under military occupation where "no" was not one of the options. The permutations to arrive at that number are left as an exercise for the student.

I hope my current one doesn't get stuck in customs for two weeks like the last one did.

That was not a fun box to open when it finally showed up!

Time to start building that missile defense shield in Europe that Putin was so upset about.

My dad worked at the Nabisco bakery in Phila. in the 70's  They had to do maintenance work on the Ritz assembly line.  Apparently, the grease ate through 11 inches of concrete on the base.

I love how Putin timed it perfectly after the Olympics. I wish I could see his expression as the Ukraine Olympiads walked down the ceremonial path again.

You're forgetting that there wasn't a "keep things how they are" option on the ballot either,  it was either join Russia or become a sovereign state.

How's that sovereign state thing working out for Trans-Dniester? Seems to me that  97% of the people made the safe choice.

I've been thinking for a while now that someone needs to make an english to meow converter,  like how there are english to l33t or english to swedish chef ones.

Doing that for april fools would be great.  Meow always makes me laugh,  if I'm not too tired to understand what she/he/it/they wrote.

We've already determined, via this precedent, that Canada, the USA, the UK, New Zealand, and Australia get to invade any country with a sizable English-speaking population.

But France gets Québec and New Orleans, and México gets Texas and most of Arizona.
