How many military bases does the US have in how many countries ? The US seems to work by hook or by crook and will even create proxy wars with other countries .Afghanistan and giving Russia their Vietnam using Osama Bin Laden .How did that work for Washington when the Taliban stopped the Opium production ? I guess the flow of drugs is a very important economic issue for the west . The US did not have to bomb Japan ,at least the civilian population ,but they did . Now the US controls Japan and can use them in any proxy war they need . They sell cluster bombs to Saudi Arabia who drops them on the Yemen people . They claim that Assad must but when given the chance to see new elections there seems to be no opposition willing to talk and enter the elections . Like Iraq ,Afghanistan , Libya and now Syria they would sooner blow the place up ,create a failed state , and cause a refugee crisis for Europe . Like Nuland said in the earlier coup in Ukraine F the EU . That is quite the policy they have there ......No wonder they don't like Putin getting in their way . NATO or the US could have a nice base in the Crimea and they would F the people and the Govt ..... US interests eh ....
Kosovo (/ˈkɒsəvoʊ, ˈkoʊ-/; Albanian: Kosova; Serbian: Косово) is a disputed territory and partially recognised state in Southeastern Europe that declared its independence from Serbia in February 2008 as the Republic of Kosovo. While Serbia recognises the Republic's governance of the territory, it still continues to claim it as its own Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija.
observer.com... You would think if there were gross violations of human rights then the Jews of Crimea might have something to say about it .
Bear mountain), a powerful symbol of Crimea.
There were times when the Jewish population of the Crimean peninsula exceeded 65,000. Now it”s around 10,000 out of 2 million, but it suddenly looks like this number has a chance to increase dramatically.
The tumultuous events around Crimea slipping out of Ukraine’s control divided the Ukrainian Jewish community. From the very first days, Crimean Jews threw their lot with Russia. “In Crimea, some Jews feel safer after Russian intervention,” reported Jewish Telegraphic Agency on March 4, 2014, less then a week after Russian ‘little green men’ put Russian flag in Sevastopol. “While many Ukrainian Jews have strongly condemned the Russian military incursion into Crimea,” JTA continued, “others see the intervention as restoring order in the wake of violent revolution that overthrew the pro-Russian government of President Viktor Yanukovych.”
Since then, Crimean Jews en masse exchanged their Ukrainian passports for Russian ones, and to the chagrin of their co-religionists elsewhere in Ukraine, asked the West and to put an end to the ‘unjust’ sanctions imposed on Russia over Crimea.
BS, take Afghanistan for instance…
Read that (in agreement) NATO forces occupy their country.
NATO took command of the United Nations-mandated International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan in August 2003.
Read that (in agreement) NATO forces occupy their country.
Noting the signing of the Security and Defence Cooperation Agreement between the United States of America and the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (Bilateral Security Agreement) on 30 September 2014, and welcoming the signing of
the Status of Forces Agreement between the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and NATO on 30 September 2014 and as ratified by the Parliament of Afghanistan on 27 November 2014, Noting that the bilateral agreement between NATO and Afghanistan and the invitation of the Government of Afghanistan to NATO to establish Resolute Support Mission provide a sound legal basis for Resolute Support Mission,
So you are saying that Ukraine should be killing people who are sympathetic to Russia ? The eastern part did not get annexed but Crimea did .
Why not go kill the Crimians seeing they seem to be more sympathetic to Russia then the east does
OH ! So what is the Minsk 2 agreement about .
It was signed by Russia ,Germany,France and Ukraine ...What is that all about if the east is a part of Russia .
If that is the case then Ukraine is fighting against the Russians but someone said that the reason they are not fighting in the Crimea is because they don't have the ability to take on the Russians .....Make up your minds people ...Pick a truth and go with it ....
Not only that but earlier on Kiev said that nobody would be speaking Russia as well
I wonder ho that would go in Quebec if the Federal Govt. one day said nobody in Canada was allowed to speak French ....divide and conquer or by hook or by crook ....
tass.ru... They didn't in the end but they were looking at doing just that . Just like the early Jew hating propaganda crap that started to emerge .
PARIS, June 28 /ITAR-TASS/. The decision of the Verkhovna rada (Ukrainian parliament) to ban Russian as a regional language was a mistake, President Pyotr Poroshenko said in an interview with the Figaro newspaper published on Saturday, June 28.
“I always said before and I repeat this again now that the Verkhovna rada’s decision to ban Russian as a regional language was a mistake. I stressed many times during my presidential campaign that this law would never get my approval,” he said.
Poroshenko expressed hope that “never again in the history of Ukraine will the issue of language or culture endanger national unity”.
So the men women and children being killed is not in the Crimea and your post seems like the east that is being bombed is some how annexed by Russia . The eastern part is still a part of Ukraine and Kiev cut off the banks to them .Kiev also cut off all support and Russia id the one who is delivering aid . The east is being forced by the military and economic sanctions against the east to turn to Russia . The Minsk2 can address the problems with the east but as long as Kiev is waring against against them the the peace plan can not move forward which also has to include them in the new constitution .

Right now there are men women and children dying and the only aid they have is coming from Russia .
Well Russia decided they had to have Crimea...so they are their responsibility, and not Ukraine's.
Kiev stopped the banking , cut them off from normal society . time to do the right thing me thinks ...
Again because they are now part of Russia, so Ukraine has no responsibility to keep their banks open in a territory that is now another countries.
I guess being part of Russia isn't all they thought it would be. If they were still Ukrainian they would have those banks to use.
Well Putin has seen the hand as well as others and he has figured out a way to at least play the game to a stale mate . But if the west makes the wrong move then things might get very hot .
Those 7 countries that were in the plans back shortly after 911 has a few countries that are resisting the fall .
I did a search yesterday and yes Crimea comes up but so does Ukraine ,except there are more reports about Ukraine and that's not touching the new deal which is to ban western journalists .
First, they tried to shoot the dogs. Next, they tried to poison them with strychnine. When both failed as efficient killing methods, British government agents and U.S. Navy personnel used raw meat to lure the pets into a sealed shed. Locking them inside, they gassed the howling animals with exhaust piped in from U.S. military vehicles. Then, setting coconut husks ablaze, they burned the dogs’ carcasses as their owners were left to watch and ponder their own fate.
The truth about the U.S. military base on the British-controlled Indian Ocean island of Diego Garcia is often hard to believe. It would be easy enough to confuse the real story with fictional accounts of the island found in the Transformers movies, on the television series 24, and in Internet conspiracy theories about the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
