    A big chunk of the Ukraine was taken from the CCCP after WWI, partly based on self-determination (they were unOrthodox Christians and hated everything Russian) and partly based on punishing the CCCP for not supporting the Allies in WWI and partly based on punishing the CCCP for being Commies.

    Then Stalin took it all back, plus chunks of what had been the Austrian Empire, most of whom were unOrthodox Christians who hated everything Russian.

    In the far east of the Ukraine, the people are Russian Orthodox, Russian speakers, and ethnic Russians (but they hate Russia because Stalin starved everyone in the Ukraine, including the ethnic Russians, and they remember; and they hate the Austrians almost as much as they hate the Russians).

    So how do you know if someone speaking Russian is an ethnic Russian Ukrainian or is a Russian soldier sent to sever the Eastern Ukraine from the rest of the Ukraine?

    (I don’t.)

    ^Well, at least these guys (no, I don’t like Putin either, but…) speak a language the locals understand, instead of having to use translators to tell folks why they’re being stomped on for their own “good”. The best foreign policy for the U.S. today may well be to let foreigners run their own show, without our interference.

    The AK47 is not the weapon of choice by an American Patriot and they do not wear masks … who have you been hanging out with Comrade?

    uh huh. At least tea partier’s are willing to show their faces. I have yet to see a leftist gathering where anyone isn’t masked either as guy fawkes, a gas victim or like the above
