it's not like they invaded Hawaii, or something.
Yes, you're quite right, they shouldn't be doing this.
But military simply isn't an option
This isn't Iraq we're talking about.

I beg to differ, if i understand you correctly, i don't expect Ukraine to attack Russia, maybe a few skirmishes (hired thugs) that's about it. These armies don't want to tangle, and probably the Russians have been ordered not to .
The outcome and victor of this will be determined by who conducts the best propaganda war, and its in full steamedit on 3-3-2014 by all2human because: (no reason given)
NATO has nothing to do with the Ukraine...NATO cannot invade...Ukraine voted by 226 votes, NOT to be a member.
Since 2010 they've "co-operated" with NATO..a bit like Georgia...NATO didnt help Georgia either did it.
So, where in any of that does that allow Russia to invade?

Why? What is different from you dying to a nuclear bomb vs getting into a car accident and dying? The fact that the death tolls are different? Well you are dead in either case, just in one example a few more people joined you. Nothing lasts forever. Even humanity has an expiration date. So why worry about it? I ask because the process of actively worrying about it is just a huge waste of energy and does nothing to fix the issue.
ETA: The world could be wiped out tomorrow from an untold number of possible cosmological and geographical events. I don't see you making a ton of threads yelling about how the supervolcano underneath yellowstone is overdue for erruption and can erupt any day now. Seriously, its all about perspective.edit on 3-3-2014 by Krazysh0t because: (no reason given)
