    A perfect political cartoon.
    As Carol Anne in “Poltergeist” whimpered, “No more!”

    I knew some Russian speaking, Russian Orthodox Ukrainians, and they hated the Austrians annexed by Stalin who wanted the Ukraine to be part of western Europe with the Russian language banned. They said they’d riot if the Austrians took over the Ukraine.


    Putin offered $15 billion and cheap oil and gas. The West offered loans to pay off existing loans, with high interest rates, and eventually expropriation of the Ukraine’s resources by the West with generous payments to the leaders from the formerly Austrian bit (leaders who got lots of support from the US, not so much from Europe, as we heard the US diplomats complaining about).


    Clearly, those former Austrians are patriots, and those Russian speakers are traitors, and Putin is responsible for all the problems in the Ukraine. How could anyone think anything else?

    I am of descent from three grandparents whose nations border Russia, and one of them is Ukraine. All of them fled with their parents the despotism and cruelty of Russia around 1900. They would have likely died on their land, exiled from their land, or if drafted into the Russian army – but died.
    .
    They were dirt poor when they came here, dirt poor through the Depression, and finally their children (my parents, aunts, and uncles) made decent lives for themselves in the U.S.
    .
    Putin is a megalomaniac as was Stalin. Ukraine was always coveted by Russia and has experienced famines and purges as a result of Russia’s influence. It would be astonishing if the modern world allowed the Russians to continue with this archaic type of invasion. Russia is again becoming an Evil Empire.
    .
    Syria, the Olympics, and then … Ukraine? Putin is becoming a national leader in style of Hitler and Stalin.

    I think it will split into Ukraine and Crimea, much the way Moldova broke away from Romania (which has had almost as much trouble with its borders as Poland).

    Given that Prince Barry’s response to this was to announce he’s ignoring the constitution yet again to gut the US military? The only real question is whether he’s doing so to directly aid a Russian invasion of the US.

    You lefties never do allow reality, in this case of Putin’s recently ousted thug puppet, to intrude on your party line dogma.

    Not that the myth-makers care, but Reagan did not end the cold war, he increased it, tripled the National Debt, and illegally sent funds to the terrorist bands.

    Also he didn’t “Tear Down That Wall!” The people behind that wall did themselves.

    Is that Putin dusting off a Russian tank or McCain dusting off an American tank?

    Reality: we threaten Putin because they’re concerned about the location of their largest naval seaport on the Black Sea, and it’s THEIR neighborhood.


    We invaded Afghanistan, Iraq, Grenada, Panama, and took part in “regime change” in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Nicaragua, et al, and we’re just “good guys”??

    @dtroutma

    Thanks, trout. That is much what I was thinking. Of course, we’re going to take it seriously (everyone should), but, given our past history, we have very poor grounds for going on our own in dealing with this situation.
    The strange thing is that Putin apparently has been ignoring Yanukovych since he arrived in Moscow. So just what is the Russian intention?

    I don’t think Putin cares about Yanukovych; he will use him or toss him, depending. Sort of the way the US used Diem and then threw him away.
