********* NOT OUR PROBLEM!!..******

The ethnic Russians are inviting the Russians in after the Legal Government was deposed.. Big Deal.. The new Ukrainian Government is already having their Weird-O's popping up.. Some want to put their nuclear weapons back together (3 to 6 months) others want to have Georgian Jihadist come fight the Russians.. This is a Civil War.. The Government we had a mutual protection pack with was overthrown!!.. So if we even upheld our promise, do we help the Russians reinstate the Government we made the pack with, or help the one that want a nuclear Ukraine and a Jihadist Army??...

I repeat: NOT OUR PROBLEM!!........

Russia's influence in Eastern Europe and the Middle East is getting stronger as Putin creates new Russian-Iranian empire while Obama shrinks US military and treats US nukes as obsolete Clankers. Undoubtedly, PM Netanyahu already realized that Obama is spineless loser who serves the interests of the Iran-Russia-Syria axis of evil against Israel. The pro-Iranian and Mozlem Brotherhood supporter and financier Obama proved to be good friend of Putin behind the scenes and his new world agenda of the Russian-Iranian-Syrian axis control over the entire Middle East and beyond with the Iranian sponsored terrorist organizations including al Qaida, Hamas, Hezbollah, Quds. Obama and Hillary proved to be great friends of the Iranian regime and the Russian dictatorship and big supporter of the Mozlem brother terrorists and their Jihad war in the Middle east. Obama and Hillary made the deal with worst enemies of the American people Khumenei and Putin in secret contacts in Oman since July 2012 aimed at creating new world order without America which is sinking rapidly to bankruptcy and loss of its military might of decades. Obama did not participate in meeting with his Defense Secretary Hagel, CIA chief John Brennan and NSA chief while being involved in buying more votes of Blacks and Hispanics while slashing the US military and trashing the US nukes. America if falling to its lowest national security, economy and becoming rapidly a new third world country of beggars and parasites that live on the Obama free check in return for keeping Obama in power.

Horrible dejavu-feelings from Europe on 1930s and how it was then: the motives, the ideology and the need to reconstitute the stage of a real superpower, the policy to broaden the territory gradually...

Putin wants Ukraine because of "OIL", which =$$$$$$$$$ If Ukraine didn't have oil resources, then Putin could care less about Ukraine.

Ukraine is Russia's only warm water seaport. That and the fact that it is also the bread basket,read wheat farms,of the old USSR. Putin doesn't want to give those up.

The Ukraine downsized their military from hundreds of thousands troops and thousands of aircraft and tank to a few thousand troops and 1 air squadron. US secty of defense chuckie 'I can do that' hagel must have Ukranian advisors at the pentagon as he is systematically gutting the US military on obamas orders. The russians just waltzed in not a shot fired into the Ukraine. I wonder who our next military visitors will be after obama/hagel have completed their plans ?

Yes. Indeed. You're so right.
Perhaps a better question would be, "What is Obama's interest in Ukraine?"

Obama won't do a single thing to impact Russia's advances, so don't worry.

What is Russia's interest in Ukraine?

Well, this is rather simple actually. First, the farm land is rich. Second, the Russian Navy has a warm sea port in Ukraine to patrol the Black Sea. And Thirdly, Russia's natural gas pipelines run through Ukraine and supply natural gas to the EU.

What everyone fails to acknowledge that the uprising in Ukraine was not a true uprising. It was manufactured. Victoria Nuland of the State Department and the US gave $5B to the opposition in Ukraine in order to over throw the government and side with the EU.

Now, what is Ukraine? It is a sovereign state that is A PART of the Russian Federation. Best way to describe it is a state, similar to a state within the US> A state that is it's own sovereign entity but voluntarily aligned into a union.

So when a foreign entity comes into that union and funds an opposition for an over through of the government of a state within that common union, think the biggest power in that union will not come in and attempt to regain control.

Let's us the State of Florida as an example. Let's say that the Russian's came into the State of Florida and funded an opposition group to over throw the elected government. What would Washington do? Possibly the exact same thing Russia is doing in Ukraine? What a novel concept that would be.

Bottom, this administration was caught with their hand in the proverbial cookie jar and they are risking a larger war with a nuclear power for their own personal desires while you and your family will be sent off to fight, fund, supply, and die.

But make sure you get out there and vote!

My Dear Comrade Barack: I wish to personally thank you for your generous offer at our summit in 2012 to be “more flexible”---as soon as you had fooled those pesky American “bitter clingers” in one last election. Russia’s foreign policy is now so easy for me!
I know how to make elections irrelevant; so can you. You like power? Watch how I do it.

Q: What is Russia's interest in Ukraine?
A: Annexation, to the New Russian Empire!

PS, This has nothing to do with Obama ... protecting ethnic Russians etc. this is ambition, same as Alexander, Peter the Great and Bonaparte.

"Useful Idiots" was a term coined by Lenin to describe those non-Communists easily manipulated by the Marxist/Leninists to achieve their goals. The Democrat Party has traditionally been chock full of them. Obama is a prototype Lenin would delight in. "Such people," boasted Lenin, "would sell us the rope with which we shall later hang them."

There are few things as exciting and respectable, than a nation still willing to stomp on irrational Jew hating, anarchist street rabble led around by their noses by neo-Nazi murderers, who've illegally taken power. The EU/Obama Axis is insane, thinking they can rob Russia of their Naval base, etc. by funding and encouraging National Socialist filth 30 Million Russian died to eliminate. The EU scum have ruined Europe with their Socialist policies.

Some attempt to assert this "New Russian Empire" nonsense, even referencing Georgia and Russian military actions there. Did Russia stay in Georgia? No, they pushed those middle of the night aggressors against South Ossetia back and then withdrew. Russia will secure its interests and people in Ukraine, diminish the influence of neo-Nazis, enforce the previously agreed free elections and then they will withdraw.
