Russia Invades Ukraine
« on: March 01, 2014, 07:29:47 PM »
Putin has sent Russian troops into Ukraine despite warnings from President Obama. I foresee that Obama will wag his finger and sternly talk in Russia's general direction and no action will be taken whatsoever.

The vote to invade Ukraine was approved by Russian Parliament 90 to 0.

GREETINGS FROM SOVIET RUSSIA!

Also, these aren't main battle tanks, but mobile artillery. Just a clarification of what Soviet Russia is doing over there.

I don't even care to find out what you're doing wrong, but I'm sure you're doing something wrong.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/worldviews/wp/2014/01/30/9-questions-about-ukraine-you-were-too-embarrassed-to-ask/

It's a month old article but it does a good job of explaining everything. Basically things just kept getting worse and Russia does not want to see Ukraine become part of the EU or NATO. They even threatened to point nuclear missiles at Ukraine in 2008 if they joined NATO.

It seems to me they should just split the damn country in two, give the Russian half to Russia and leave it at that.
If you are going to DebOOonK an expert then you have to at least provide a source with credentials of equal or greater relevance. Even then, it merely shows that some experts disagree with each other.

Yes, I'm sure that won't cause even more political turmoil or decimate their economy or anything.

Maybe you would like to step out of your US media bubble a second and consider what has actually happened?

The Ukraine has just undergone a massive coup funded by

Oh, you guys.

The US has been busy meddling and made the first move to get the Ukraine to move from its trade agreements with Russia and move towards the Union with the EU aka the European Central banking system which is run by the same people who run the FED.

Now, I've been playing Civilization for a very long time, and I can tell you when a rival empire starts to culture fuck one of your cities from you, you get your stack and go get it back immediately.

Russia didn't start this. The US did. But your media isn't going to tell you that. And neither is ours.

So that Ukraine ends up like Greece or Spain after they have loaded it with debt and sucked it dry? That's not very nice.

The whole situation in Ukraine saddens me. When I visited last year, Kyiv was one of the friendliest places I'd ever visited; a local man and his daughter helped us on the overnight train to Odessa when there was confusion with our tickets, complete strangers started up conversations with us on the metro (despite me being the only one who spoke any Russian at all between the six of us,) everyone we stopped was happy to help give directions (even when drunkenly bumping into a hooded youth in the snow,) and locals on the packed buses were all too happy to pass us their money to buy tickets. Even the few people we spoke to in Chernobyl had a good sense of humour. To see the scenes of it being rent apart is tragic.

Is this how the rest of the world feels when we 'Murica up a country?
That's how far the horizon is, not how far you can see.

No, we don't annex countries after we "fix" them.
