What russia is doing now seem kinda like what germany did in 1939 invade a soverign nation under jumped up pretexts.
What russia is doing now seem kinda like what germany did in 1939 invade a soverign nation under jumped up pretexts. Nowi know there are differances and some similar things but what happens if they dont leave the crimea? Does putin do it again and agasin if the west does nothing? This is how WW2 started, are we heading for WW3. If so the massive amounts of money we have been spending on our defense better some out with some new fancy stuuf, i mena hell the stealth bomber was around for 10 years before it came out of the blcak. When was the last time a weapons project came out of the black? But back on topic. If the west dopes nothnig, China and North korea will see this and think "Hum those americans are tired of war lets take some land and see what thye do". But we do have a defensice pact with japan and south korea so things there might go a bit deffrently and if they dont and we go back on our treaties all of the other dictators will be very happy and WW3 will start in no time at all.

Hahah Godwin's law, well done!
Correct me if I'm wrong, My analogy is Russia is a big guy, that's been pushed around for awhile, Now Russia has come to the realisation that he is a big boy and is now pushing back.
As for any similarities between Germany and Russia pre WW2 is an insult to both countries.
The ex-Israeli soldier who led a Kiev fighting unit
“I joined them then and there, and I started fighting back the way I learned how, through urban warfare maneuvers. People followed, and I found myself heading a platoon of young men. Kids, really.”
The other ex-IDF infantrymen joined the Blue Helmets later after hearing it was led by a fellow vet, Delta said.
As platoon leader, Delta says he takes orders from activists connected to Svoboda, an ultra-nationalist party that has been frequently accused of anti-Semitism and whose members have been said to have had key positions in organizing the opposition protests.
“I don’t belong [to Svoboda], but I take orders from their team. They know I’m Israeli, Jewish and an ex-IDF soldier. They call me ‘brother,’”

Actually, if you really look at history you would see that 1939 Germany and 2014 America have much more in common than Russia does.
I can see a future rapidly developing where the rest of the world has to unite to overthrow the evil "American Empire." The US is being set up to be the next bad guy. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.
well maybe if obama/the US, didnt put up a missile shield around russia, in all those border pre-states; russia wouldnt feel so provoked to begin with. the ukraine is just a nato puppet.
not saying this is all ok. im not a fan of any war'ing.
but the US and allies need to stfu about their personal feelings on the issue. we have had our share of proxy wars. this is no different.
the cold war never really ended did it. both sides just decided it was more beneficial to have some open commerce between each other between the fighting.
