Nobody's posted this yet? Looks like Crimea has voted to join Russia.


With 79% Turnout, Exit Polls Confirm 93% Of Voters Back Crimea Joining Russia; US,UK Rejects Results



With a voter turnout (79.09%) that exceeded every US Presidential election since 1900, the people of Crimea have spoken:

*CRIMEA JOINING RUSSIA BACKED BY 93% OF VOTERS: EXIT POLL

*U.K. FOREIGN SECRETARY: U.K. WON'T RECOGNIZE CRIMEAN REFERENDUM

Ukraine's leaders have called up 20,000 men for a newly-created National Guard as despite the so-called "truce" Russian APCs and Tanks are rolling. Pro-Russian supporters are burning books in Donetsk after storming anti-Russian buildings. The White House is already out rejecting the vote (before the final results are released).




Obama and Kerry, your move.

This is an internal matter between the People of the Ukraine, Crimea and Russia.

It should remain such until directly asked in the UN by one of those parties.

It's not Obama and Kerry's move...it's their financial backers.
Great excuse for another arms build up ala Reagan first term. His congress was democratic so blame falls equally. First trillion dollar budget I recall. Then, the hammers and toilet seats. The Pentagon has been unchecked ever since. War is a business. Perpetual war is perpetual business. War is peace.

Well...That's it then. I just hope none of the bush family had had anything to do with the voting system!

I bet the politically oblivious couple Obama/Kerry are utterly flabbergasted that the people would overwhelmingly vote Pro-Russia. But to anyone knowing Putins Machiavellian moves, its no surprise at all. He knew beforehand that Crimea is pro-Russia and yearning to return.

I'm sure this clearly is the wrong sort of democracy, and therefore doesn't count. They'll be along to tell us this soon.

I suppose the next thing we'll hear from the US administration is "Voter fraud!"

All those dead people and illegal aliens voting against US interests.

But we knew the result 2 weeks ago.

What a waste of money!

If truly 'internal' it wouldn't include 'Russia...

But I hear Obama has an idea - the next presidential election will be carried out with foreign militia on the streets, and all media that doesn't support him banned. And the choice will be a) Obama b) Satan. He'll win a new term no problem. And Putin showed him how Way to go!

It is a problem between a set group of parties, any party outside that would be external was my inference.

And according to this poll at least, the Russians seem to be invited.

Nice democratic election. I can't see where the US can dispute this.

At least it wasn't 100% like NK.



That North Korean leader Kim Jong Un won his first parliamentary election with a clear 100% of the vote might not be remarkable, but who he chose to cast his vote with certainly has sparked interest amongst Korea-watchers.

Well, I guess that's that as they say. It's all over but for the idiots in suits at press conferences to make a logical outcome into a mess to scorch the rest of the Ukraine. Heck, these folks are a 5 or so hour drive from the outlaying suburbs of Moscow. It's a shock they chose this way? The Crimea is where the Communist Elite partied and vacationed....and retired.

Now lets see if Putin wants to make it a good and proper international crisis by moving outside what cultural realities may cover with happening. Ukraine as a whole may as well be Europe for a good part of it, I'd think. Even his popularity has limits..lol.

Hopefully Kerry and Obama take defeat well. We haven't seen them outright stomped on a big foreign policy demand before. There's always been "but..but..but.." room. Not much this time with the demands in the air and the Monday suggestion, however it got going, for deadlines and such.

Russia invited to an election deciding whether or not to leave their mother country and join Russia....

Seems legit.

With those numbers, I hope the West including Harper tones down its rhetoric. Ukraine needs to regroup and rethink their policies and moves, imo. I would like to see everyone else just keep low and let Ukraine recover.

I just can't help but think Crimea is voting to move back in with Mom and Dad cos it's a tough world out there and they're close to living on the streets, The interpretation is all mine and could very well be bass ackwards

Ukraine have already asked for our help and there have been emergency UN meetings.
They gave up nukes because we promised to protect them from exactly this kind of thing.
Russia signed the agreement saying they wouldnt do exactly what they are doing now, so they broke their promise, and we said that if they did what they are doing now, we would protect Ukraine, and we are not.

Both sides have gone back on their word and broken the agreement.
