All Things Considered......

It is probably not such a bad thing for Russia to annex the Crimea.



After all, the people largely are Russian speaking with Russuin roots;
they hate the guts of the Ukrainians;
the Crimea was ceded from Russia to Ukraine in 1854;
Sebastapol is the home port of the Russian Black Sea Fleet;
and the guy who just ran away was a corrupt bad bastard.

So for  me, if the options are status quo leading  to civil war or orderly transfer of territory to Russia, I favour the latter.

Wed Wussel had better chance of getting his fwag back than O'Bama has of influencing the East Ukraine.
Remind me again how the Fwag thing turned out

And as for 300,000 Muslim Crimean Tartars, they should have stayed in fucking Siberia where the "Man of Steal" put them. Do they really think the Turkish Navy will put their 1970s US tin-pot frigates against Slava-class guided missile cruisers? Nope?

Big surprise. There's reason the VC's are made out of guns captured at Balacalva, a reason the welfare west is about to re-learn big time.

But spare a minute to think if Mitt hadn't been cheated of the presidency by Dem fraud, and if John Bolten was in his second term of secretary of state. Things would be very very different.

The guy who 'ran away' was also democratically elected.

Anon, you need a nom de plume to comment here.

Yes, he was democratically elected - just like that other venal corrupt prick Qarase in Fiji.

Forgot to add, Vlad controls a large proportion of the energy supply to Western Europe so the Wops, Dagos, Frogs, Krauts and Spags ain't gonna lift a finger.........

".. guy who just ran away was a corrupt bad bastard."
And he ran to where?

Whether it's a good or bad thing is irrelevant. Russia won't let Crimea out of its control, and western countries can do jack shit about it. Military consequences aren't even remotely feasible, so Obama and friends get to work out what will be the least face-losing response they can manage.

The real question is, if there are no consequences for this, what about various other authoritarian nationalist governments around the world who'd like a return to the 1930s? Not a good precedent to allow to be set...

Quite so, Milt.
