Its almost comical when Putin says he has the right to invade Ukraine to protect Russians in Ukraine, I mean Ukraine has NEVER been hostile to Russians and treats them like brothers and besides if this was an issue Putin should be dealing with the government not sending in troops. If Canada had an issue with Canadians living in Moscow we certainly would not send the army in to protect the Canadians working there, so the only reason Putin has is an excuse for a land grab.

there has been some excellent coverage coming from Siberia that would suggest that Siberia is about to go for their own referendum for sovereignty from Russia as well. Should that happen it would eliminate Russia as a world power and reduce their economic foot print in the world. I forgot the name of the other area in Russia but it is a small area that produces the second most oil and gas and they too want autonomy from Russia.

Russias population is in decline . Russia has been using its citizens living in neighboring countries like Kazakhstan as a weapon or an excuse for invasion .

It is not comical when KKKlinton or Obama claim they have the right to invade Somalia to protect Somalis or Libya to protect Libyans. It is stupid and sad. But Russia did not make the rules.

US did not annex parts of Libya or Somalia like Russia annexed parts of Georgia and Ukraine. Shouldn't you worry about Arab animals killing each other like rats. Just in Syria close to 200.000 Arabs have been killed. Why worrying about Slavs? Putinko cares more about dictator Assad than his Slavic brethren. If this doesn't make you laugh I don't know what will.

The US don't need to annex countries to control them.

They just put puppet governments.

The White House is responsible for more death worldwide than Putin ever will!

Quite the contrary, Russia was an active participant of making the rules that they WOULD protect Ukraine and her borders, the very ones that they invading to steal Crimea. By the way Clinton has not been active for over a year, where have you been?

How many more times do people have to post the statistics for you before it sinks into your head of what Russia has done in the past? I am not even going to waste my time, you only think what you want and it has nothing to do with facts.

You really need to go to counselling to learn about the use of absolutes, I highly doubt "Every one" was killed by money given to Syrian Rebels, but apparently it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy to say it, so as long as everyone knows that you make no sense, go for it.
