    The Russian stock market went up 2.5% after the Crimea vote.

    Um, didn’t the people of Crimea vote for reunion with Russia?
    Let’s not meddle like we did in Chile on 11 Sept 1973.
    Let’s not meddle like we did in Vietnam in the 1960’s & 1970’s.
    Let’s not meddle like we did in Iraq or Grenada.

    Agreed! I lived through the cold war, and have absolutely zero desire to do it again!!

    ‘Lest we forget’…is possibly the theme here. There are many of those who have forgotten Hitler’s acquisition of the countries that ‘opted’ to join Germany pre-WW II.

    If Obama goes on like this, it will be another Munich.


    The world regrets that Chamberlain played the fool at Munich. If only he’d manned up. There would have been no ‘Miracle at Dunkirk’ so the entire BEF would have been lost. There would have been no radar shield, so the RAF would have been helpless against the Luftwaffe. With no base in Britain, the US war on Nazi Germany would have been limited to stern rhetoric (and the War against Japan would have ended in ‘43 or so, before the US had time to develop nuclear weapons).


    So let’s hope Obama doesn’t repeat Chamberlain’s mistake.

    Um, those that bothered to show up. Given the ethnic mix there, and the known boycott of the “election” by many opposition groups along with the declared 95% in favor outcome the whole thing was a sham election for show.

    If anybody has a really good idea on how to deter Putin without sending in troops and risking a nuclear war, please speak now. Otherwise all the rest is BS designed to push a political agenda.

    So I guess this is the end of the US going to the space station… possibly kick out all the US companies doing business in Russia. Hardball goes both ways.

    The people of Crimea have had an election. There is no evidence that they made attempts to disenfranchise anyone who didn’t seem likely to vote their way, or to make it as difficult as possible to exercise their right to vote, which is more than many of the states in the US can say. So, we don’t like their choice, tough. It’s their choice. If it turns out to be a mistake, it’s their mistake and their problem. Of course, they will probably ask us to help them solve it, but there’s no reason why we have to comply with that request. They are not children, we are not their parents, and we have problems of our own.

    You do know that most of Russia’s ICBM’s are aimed at the U S?The rest are aimed at NATO members.
    Putin regards the cold war as the happy days of the former USSR.He wants to reassemble the Soviet Union.

    Doesn’t help that a certain president nixed NASA’s budget to pay for more welfare.

    ^ Agreed; it’s far more beneficial to get a few more astronauts into space than it is to feed America’s hungry children. There’s no financial return in THAT.

    @NeoconMan

    Unfortunately Neocon, your argument is nothing but a logical fallacy. It creates a false delimma and makes an appeal to pity.
    .
    It isn’t one or the other but a matter of degree. That is, should we abandon space research and exploration and give more to the poor (or hungry children) than we already do? How much should one or the other get?
    So, while I can conceed that some amount of welfare etc., is acceptable I also think that the requirements for recipents should be very stiff and closely supervised.

    Space X already has a contract to ferry people to the Space Station. Obama is using American Contractors to save money.
