Cracks me up that America a "beacon" of "democracy" and "freedom" support a week old group (current so called government of Ukraine) that obtained power by force even using snipers against their own people protesting that overthrew a elected government.

BUT - they wont support a population that choose to leave Ukraine due to the above and join Russia.

Stinks of hypocrisy and politics


Having foreign soldiers occupy land and then force those citizens to vote, after weeks of fear propaganda and intimidation, is not just nor fair.

If Russia is so confident that the results are true and accurate, let UN troops and officials into Crimea and after the UN gives approval, have a true 100% fair referendum.

What is Pootin trying to hide?

This is coming from someone who is Russian living in Chicago.

You're confusing Crimea with an actual country.

It's part of the unitary nation of Ukraine and has been since 1954.

If the locals don't like it they can always move to Russia.

They just did that. There were International observers present in Crimea to witness the voting process and at the polling stations. They saw nothing untoward and one even stated they the "voting at gunpoint" was a myth. In other words, all was free and fair, but it is not the outcome Obama and his handlers - the bankers - wanted or will accept.

They could send in UN peacekeepers and call for a re-run of the referendum vote and still get the same result. It's a bitch when the people actually get to decide the outcome, rather than the murky world of vote fraud rampant in the home of the brave and land of the free!

Out of all the cries about illegal referendums, I have yet to see a picture of a Granny with a AK-47 or Tank barrel to her head.

Anybody got pics to back this up?

So having the people vote to decide who they want to govern them is illegal but having people violently overthrow an elected government is perfectly legal ...



dare I say that this is just a tad inconsistent?

I would say its best to avoid any conflict in that region by giving Crimea over to the Russians. Mostly Russians in Crimea anyway.

Its for the best, to avoid any potential war breaking out which could lead to more than just Ukraine & Russia being involved.

The people have spoken. Banksters go home. Kerry, McCain, the rest of the war-mongering zio-freaks should be arrested. This world cannot proceed forward with this little group in charge of important things. It's time to take the gun from the monkey!

I think it is naive to think that Russia will stop with Crimea...

Think Georgia 2008.

Looks like the Crimeans have made their minds up.....It's a big no to the EU and no to the USA too!

Good choice if you ask me!

Nobody said anything about "everyone" becoming Russian. This is about Crimea and the choice their people made. Trying to twist this into something it's not is of no value to the discussion.

Or do you think the people of Crimea should be forced to go along with Kiev, the EU and US interests when obviously they have other ideas?

1. My post was a wry comment made in response to another poster, not about the topic in general.

2. I can't be bothered. Read my posts if you really want to know what I believe (there's a few of them). I've done this subject to death.

The US and the EU are imposing sanctions on Russia because they're nasty people who have an unreasonable dislike of Russia.

I hear ya.

Good, so let them join. What is the issue here?
Scotland is going to vote for independents soon, will the US risk thermal nuclear war when that happens as well?

Their referendums look better run than the ones in my country (we have yet to have real referrendums on key issues). I am quite envious.

No but the comedy that will follow will be prime time entertainment.

I'd say that sums it up quite well.....They really don't like it when the Jackboot's on the other foot!

America (with the connivance of the EU & UN) set all the precedents for Russia's actions......All this bleating about sanctions just serves to underline their hypocrisy.

Considering that the Russian economy is by and large based on real tangible commodities, whereas the EU & US economies are largely based on fraud, I suspect the Russians will probably remain unmoved by their feeble threats.
