I do have to agree that I still think Russia actually deploying troops in Crimea before it has seceded is rather unsettling, but doesn't surprise me considering how they reacted to Abkhazia and South Ossetia declaring independence.

Yeah. But I do feel a bit hypocritical pointing fingers at Russia for it; I mean, we in the U.S. did that on a few occasions (Panama, Granada, Iraq/Afghanistan). Given the circumstances were different in those cases, but its not as if we haven't invaded countries without 100% precedent.

But eh, it's Russia right? Nobody likes them, so that makes it not okay! Right?

I knew someone was going to use that argument sooner or later  :-\  In every case, we had a reason to be there that affected our national security or the security of US citizens:  Panamian soldiers opened fire on a car filled with US servicemen and killed one of them, US citizens were studying at the local university on Granada, the Taliban government of Afghanistan was sheltering Al-Qaeda, and (false) intel suggested that Saddam was planning on selling chemical weapons to the Taliban.  I'm not about to lionize the US or any NATO country, but Russia has absolutely no reason to be deploying troops in Crimea, which is still considered the sovereign territory of Ukraine.

Doesn't matter what happens.. Obama is still going to get involved in it. He has to stick his nose in everything.





Thanks, Obama.
