The only people that want Russians to fire, are the Ukranians and West.

They know Putin does not want any shot fired so I would certinally look for agent provoketurs.

It is not in his interest, however, it IS in the West's and Ukraine's interest for it to start up hot.

i really hope so, its going to happen, maybe not today...... but tomorrow? i just hope cool heads prevail, and i agree that Russia doesn't want it, but the west are pushing and pushing, something will break...

you have to admit though, Ukraine officials allowing their military forces to fire, dangerous times

First off, you might want to edit your post. It's not proper etiquette to post your reply in a quote.

Secondly, I've been worried from the start that all of this was going to end up badly. Putin wants Crimea. Crimea wants Putin.

The major factor here is that Ukraine doesn't want to let it go, and the UN (read US) has an obligation to help Ukraine.

It's all a big unneeded mess.

Ukraine needs to get nuked up.

Only then will this country be safe from the machinations of that obnoxious little Napoleon in the Kremlin.

Without nukes, they're sitting ducks.

Yeah just what we need, neo-Nazis with nukes. I feel safer with N Korea having them. At least China keeps NK in check, the west cannot control these nazi thugs.

Actually I do feel safer with Russia keeping the peace than neo-nazis, Russia has demonstrated probably the worlds most peacful referendum and a country going back to Russian control.

Can you give an example of such a peacful invasion by the west?

Would those be the same tanks they aimed at grannies heads to force them to vote in Crimea?

Because the last russian tank I saw in Crimea, was a statue.

They are? The Russians laughed at Obama's little sanctions to 11 people..They literally thought it was a joke.

Unless you mean western Ukraine? They haven't advanced on Crimea that I'm aware of..

I think we have to look at history for prior examples of stirring up conflict in the world, who is good at it? Yes, the west. Demonstrated many times. Have they ever demonstrated a peacful invasion on the scale that Russia has achieved?

One officer is dead, we are already in cold war again and is blown out of proportion?

Cold war? Over react much? This is nothing like the cold war.

I would like everyone to relax.

Obama will probably give a speech with a serious expression on his face and send Kerry over there to give another speech with a serious expression on his face, if this goes hot.

So they'll be serious if shooting goes widespread.

They may even draw a red line.

(then go golf with Beyonce' or something)
