no we did it when Bush made war with a sovereign nation
i think Putin has played an old-school game very deftly, and i think Russia has some claim to Crimea anyway - Nato has been snapping up the old Soviet sattelities for a while so Putin is a hero at home - Russians are a very proud people - but anyone has the right to question - i don't like Putin and he think he's a caveman with an inferiority complex, albeit a brilliant one - i feel sorry for the threat to Ukraine itself, which this is about as much as anything else - civil or guerrilla war is a real possibility if Russia grows drunk upon its present success
and invades Ukraine proper
They voted to join Russia Maybe Texas who hates our nation will vote to go to Mexico
This is not the same as Hitlers actions. Suppose the United States wanted to officially make Puerto Rico a state. What role do you suppose Russia would have in that? We are not obligated to win everyone's revolution for them. I'm sorry, but the people of Ukraine need to make their position very clear to the rest of the world, if they want NATO to come to their rescue. Obama is embarrassing us with his silly sanctions, and Putin is pulling America's teeth.
Well I could be mistaken, but before Russia intervene that entire region was going "Super Nova." Once Russia stepped in things seem to calm down. I'm wondering how many lives have been saved by their intervention. On the other hand, the politics of how they did it sure was sleezy. And that's what I think needs to be questioned. I sure wouldn't want a super power annexing Mexico for their own good.
If were contractually obliged to do so, yes...thanks NATO, writing checks we cant cash since after WW2
Perhaps, i mean i dont blame Putin, some egotistical nation(s) (the US mainly) spreading borders to his backyard, i think he just had the balls to call our bluff, even if he did apparently fold lol
Haha true, he's a proud dude for sure, idk man, i mean im no college major, but i tend to think the whole petroleum thing is a red herring, for the US anyway; petrol in the EU is already sky high and yeah, that would be a HUGE hit for them, but i think we have more reserves in here and Canada than they let on. And worse comes to worse, maybe we could be the new exporter to the EU, we do love makin that money lol I think Putin is too worried about the potential isolation, but like i said, im just kinda goin on what i see in the news from time to time, im not very well informed on the issue lol
Even if unites states has the right thay will never do that its like a risky u know <br />
seema like thay are scare of the russian and trust me if there will be world fourth wor it will be between russia and usa and russia and america will be very Easy prey for the russian
It's not right what Russia is doing to Ukraine but at the end of the day America and Russia all have hidden agenda's, remember who started this whole mess in the first place now it wants to help.
Question yes. Act, no. Not unless the Ukraine asks us to.
The US has invaded a few of them itself, so...it should be an expert on this.
Yeah the US hasn't annexed anywhere in recent history. The Russians say that the US et al intervene in various countries, this is true, but we never annex them to our territory. That's the crucial difference.
Question? Of course. All nations should.
