Putin s right.

Obama needs to but out, Russia has had Crimea until 1954 when it was given to the Ukraine by Khrushchev for no other reason then he had Ukrainian roots.

The dems wan sanctions an the republicans shout that " these sanctions are not enough". Is everyone TRYING to be stupid?
How about we mind our own business for a change? People are not being massacred. Neighborhoods are not being bombed. It seems that Russia is much kinder to the people it dominates than we are...

In answer to your question about everyone trying to be stupid, I don't believe they are trying to be stupid but just naturally are. Our leaders have demonstrated more often than not that they are not the most intelligent in the universe.

That election was nothing compared to the 2008 and 2012 debacles, in which an imbecile, whose proclaimed intention was to destroy America, was elected by foolish Americans to the Office of President. America has since become a laughing matter in every nation because we have the most incompetent joke of a leader in American history. In view of that, we most certainly have no right to criticize another nation.

Better an imbecile be elected by foolish citizens than a half-wit appointed by elderly judges, don't you think?

What wasn't funny is our Trillion Dollar military being fought to A stand still against band of muslim radicals armed with sling shots, sticks and rocks.

They failed to capture or kill the chief radical who killed thousands in NYC and destroyed the Pentagon.

Putin can say all he wants, HE is the aggressor and must shoulder the responsibility now for a Ukranian soldier being killed in Crimea. Ukraine has been steadfast in maintaining themselves without firing and Russia has proven to be the uncontrollable idiots with a gun. The decision for Ukraine to shoot back is the correct decision and now any Russians killed because of the decision lies solely on Putins shoulders.

Please provide the details--all of them--of how Obama the Liar saved America. Don't mince on details. Don't neglect to include an explanation of how his implanting three Muslims with Muslim Brotherhood affiliations into our national security system to help protect us from Muslim terrorists has saved us. In addition, explain how his bringing us to the brink of bankruptcy by wasting our money on terrorism, etc., how his violating our Constitution with almost every official act he implements has benefitted us; how the disaster he has brought upon American citizens by his asinine, unworkable Affordable Health Care has helped us; and lastly, how his turning our country into a rogue nation by using the Muslim Brotherhood to topple Muslim countries, torturing and murdering their citizens, beheading and eating Syrians, has saved our nation, just for starters.

Since you feel that Putin needs to shoulder the responsibility for that soldier's death, then I assume you must likewise feel that Obama must take responsibility for the deaths of the Americans in Benghazi?

Good point, but one of the chief radicals who killed those thousands, as well as Daniel Pearl, has been sitting in Guantanamo Bay, unpunished by the Obama administration for his crimes. Why is no one complaining about the injustice of allowing murderers to continue unpunished?

well, Russia is annexing Crimea, it is not independent ... The USA annexed Texas in 1845, a war resulted ...(the US got New Mexico, Colorado Arizona, California and part of Utah as a result )
Chechnya is trying to break out of the sphere of Russian influence, like the Southern States in the uncivil war.
Oh well!

Comparing Canada to Russia is a joke. Quebec had two referendums. If Quebec wins majority the can leave without problem. If Russia behaved like Canada it would have been a different country. Russia is ruled by an ex KGB agent who thinks this still this the 19th century. Further comment is unnecessary.

Yep. 1845 and 2014 are so similar. Oh my. You should stop blaming Arabs living in the past.
