Here's what I posted on an article about the Ukraine situation, and I think it's pretty relevant here:
I think it's time to redraw the Ukraine, so far, you don't really hear anyone from Crimea complaining about joining Russia, so we can take it that
they are willing to join Russia. As far as using the analogy that Mexico should have their land back. First, there are a lot of people living in
California, and they don't want to join Mexico. If you used the logic that the U.S took their land by force, then you have to use the logic that
Mexicans took the land from Indians by force, and if we were to go with this line of reasoning, that means that almost everyone would have to go back
and return their land, and history is not clear on who conquered who. Heck, if you go back 45,000 years ago, even the Chinese are not natives(the
Cro-Magnons killed the Hom Erectus, who were the natives). And everyone in South America and Australia would have to vacate their land.
In addition, the U.S can use the logic that there are already a higher percentage of legal Mexicans occupying land, more than that were already taken.
Finally, they can always ask Canada to join them, and that would be much better since Canada has only 30 million people, and a much greater landmass,
and then return California to Mexico, if they want(in reality, it's the Native Indians that got robbed). Honestly, I don't get all this fighting
when all you have to do is ask.
I think it's time for every country to simultaneously resolve all of their border situation and immigration situations at once, so that no country
will try to use one situation as a precedent. If China wants Taiwan, then they have to give up Tibet, for example. In addition, we can also try to
correct past mistakes, for example, Australia and South America could be more mixed. Finally, there should be a worldwide agreement that no country
will attempt to annex another again, that is the greatest cause of war right now, and throughout history.
