    Re: It's official - Russian enter Crimea

    It occurred to me today that Vladimir Putin is simply channelling his inner Abraham Lincoln, recovering the break-away region.
    This might cause some confusion given the whole...

    Yep. Pan-Slavism has been a long-term Russian policy.

    Re: It's official - Russian enter Crimea

    Well, we'll see. If further clashes break out between Ukrainian authorities and ethnic Russians in the east of Ukraine, you will know that Putin has directed them and intends to use them for further...

    I'm not really sure he sees it that way.
    I probably thinks he has solidified his position in Russian eyes around the world as Defender of the Russians.

    Re: It's official - Russian enter Crimea

    Just finished watching Sky News. Putin does not admit there are Russian troops in Ukraine. He claims they are local defense organizations.
    One of the weird things the Russians keep saying is that...

    Re: It's official - Russian enter Crimea

    I can tell when I get the "Your guy screwed up the country. Now it's my guy's turn to screw up the country" comments.
    If...

    Re: It's official - Russian enter Crimea

    Merkel, in her conversation with Obama today, said her assessment of Putin is that he is "out of touch with reality."

    On a lighter note, "Teen Sues Parents"

    Teen Sues Her Parents
    18 year old moves out of her parents' house, but expects her parents to pay her private school tuition and later her college tuition.

    Re: It's official - Russian enter Crimea

    Fair enough. I have edited the offending posts. The offending language now lives on only in quotes in others' posts, which I cannot edit.
    It just bugs me when someone says, "Don't touch that wire...

    Re: It's official - Russian enter Crimea

    In my experience, getting NATO &/or the EU to act quickly and decisively is like herding cats.
    You and I can see that it is in Europe's interest to act quickly and decisively, but invariably, a few...

    Re: It's official - Russian enter Crimea

    1986Tide said the freezing of Japanese assets was a causus belli.
