  • U.S. Secretary of State-nominee Rex Tillerson's recommendation to "arm Ukrainians" and provide forms of direct response by US/NATO against Russian forces says a lot about his willingness to use force as a bludgeon without regard to what America's NATO partners in Europe might desire.

    Europeans are far less interested in provoking Russia over its armed aggression in Ukraine, especially without any legal pretense to do so. For the US to stick its neck out for Ukraine, a country where More..

      Indeed.We must prevent Putin from taking more and showna little more that we're serious about it.Also to Ukraine if they would allow nazis or extremistes in its army they should know beforehand the support will decrease.

      Right. Ukraine is in Europe's backyard. And I haven't seen much evidence to suggest that the main players like Germany and France are eager to take on energy-rich Russia over this.

      As far as the "Nazis" thing goes, I think the Russians have overly exploited that theme in their propaganda. There are "Nazis" (aka skinheads) everywhere in Europe, Russia too.

  • Crimea is Russia..more than 90% of Crimeans voted in referendum for joining Russia and there is no sign they want to get back...So get over it and learn to live with it. If Ukrops want to have Crimea back /even if 70% of Crimeans are Ethnic Russians/ they must take it back by force..and they will finally get to know what it means to deal with REAL /not invisible/ Russian Army...period

      Just send in some armed men, deny the invasion, and install some election boxes will do as well.

      Give the voters the option to leave Russia or to become independent.

      And manipulate such that the result is > 95% to join Ukraine, then Putinbots will accept it as legitimate.

      While thousands of people were executed and the world new that you still back the Serbs of that time.Guess you don't know much about about history either.
      Crimea could've been an autonomous region without being a shot fired, but of course an anonymous army prevented a solution to reach that transistion not only because they took Crimea without a fair future agreement but also because they want to gain more grounds.
