<quoted text>Palin on Ukraine: I told you so
Posted by CNN Political Unit
(CNN)
In 2008, when she was the GOP vice presidential nominee, Palin questioned in a speech whether then-Sen. Barack Obama would have the foreign policy credentials to handle a scenario in which Russian President Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine.
"After the Russian army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama's reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence – the kind of response that would only encourage Russia's Putin to invade Ukraine next," she said in Reno, Nevada on October 21, 2008.
Ah, those neocons probably arranged this whole coup just to embarrass Obama. Probably did the same in Georgia. "Misha, you go ahead and attack Tshkinval, we'll back you!" LOL

It's no secret. They do stuff like that.

Just take a look at that Karl Rove dude. He looks just like the Nazi SS guy out of Radars of the Lost Ark.

The poeple will anger, because the rich always becom to act like dictators.
The poeple will anger, because stupid-boys made by hereditary system become rich.

And, Japanese-emperors satisfy both above conditions.
(Japanese-emperors were made by hereditary system and stupid-rich-boys.)

So, I cannot udnerstand Japs!!!

Soviet-Union Government and China too became

Russia has no planes nor SAMS that could stop this. Nothing. Once the air control was established, the entire field would be saturated with drones, and I promise, no tank or group of men will stop that.
And you still haven't subdued those Taliban sheep herders with your airpower.

Apart from air power, the Russian navy is a force to reckon with as well. It's surface warships could blast American aircraft carriers to smithereens with their deadly Sunburn anti-ship missiles.

And the Russian navy's new Varshavyanka class submarines are super silent killers that carry the Shkval high speed rocket torpedo. Which can sink American aircraft carriers before the yanks know what hit them.

Your F-18 super hornets wouldn't even get the chance to clear the flight deck.

"Obama To Russia: There Will Be 'Costs' For Ukraine"

Huh? You guys are misinterpreting this. I think what he's saying is "Get this straight, Ukraine. We ain't the Russkis. Any money we send over there, we're going to get it back, with interest. This ain't no international welfare state we're running here, just a national one."

LOL

I have NO intention to insult any one of American-shoe stores nor American-butchers.
I donot support Universities.
What I want to say is.....
In short,
Lenin, Stalin, Mao said
if people of the world read their books,
those people can be super-men (super-brain-men???).
That will not happen.
For exapmle, you will understand how hard they should train in order to be an athlete.
(I have NO intention to support top1%.)
And, this is insulting western-people.
(I only want to support the U.S.)
They said that
western-people couldnot develop only one or two books.

I don't care for how it ended, just that it ended. We had no business over there, just making money for LBJs friends. BUT, if you are going to fight, fight to WIN.

Obviously there will be costs. Putin behaves like aggressor of 18th century, with no regard to justice and international law. As Russian expert Novadvorskaya mentioned, only severe sanctions could stop him, otherwise he will feel free to invade other countries.

As for Mongols, you should read more carefully what I write, I sad that Russian invading armies are acting like Mongols, using their tactics: Gathering huge armies and invading other countries without any good reason. Same ruthless and unjust methods, just like in 1240...
