    Before WWI, the Ukraine was a province in the Russian Empire. After WWI, the Allies dismantled the defeated empires, including the CCCP because the CCCP withdrew from the war effort in ‘17. Poland was formed from parts ot the German Empire, parts of the Austrian Empire, and parts of the Russian Empire that really didn’t want to be part of the CCCP, since they were western-oriented by religion and language..


    In ‘39, Ribbentrop and Molotov agreed to split Poland between Germany and the CCCP. The bit annexed by Germany is now all of Poland (and Ribbentrob was hanged). The bit annexed by the CCCP is now part of the Ukraine and Belarus. And, with massive support from the EU and the US, forces from that part annexed by Stalin against the vehement wishes of its citizens to remain free of Russia now control the Ukrainian ’government’. Plus, Stalin starved all the Ukrainians to feed the rest of the CCCP, so even ethnic Russians who are native Russian speakers and Russian Orthodox have a dislike of Russia (but they also have a dislike of those Ukrainians who were formerly part of the Austrian Empire).


    The Crimea was NOT starved by Stalin. It was part of the Soviet Socialist Republic of Russia until 1954 when Khrushchev gave it to the Soviet Socialist Republic of the Ukraine. And most Crimeans seem quite willing to return to mother Russia.


    But in the ‘90s, a treaty, signed by Russia, guaranteed the territorial integrity of the Ukraine. And now the West is strongly supporting a Ukraine run by people from the former Austrian Empire, people who will do the bidding of the Western banks and engineering firms and make themselves and those banks and those engineering firms rich at the expense of the rest of the Ukrainians. Which makes them patriots, and those eastern Ukrainians who don’t want that dupes and traitors.


    We have to guarantee the profits of those banks and engineering firms, and anyone who doesn’t support that is an enemy combatant/terrorist/generic troublemaker who must be eradicated.

    To bad we did not elect a person who understood Russia as a geopolitical threat. To bad we did not have a representative in office who wants to expand the drilling in places such as Alaska and government lands we bought for the oil and minerals. Then we may have been able to offer Europe an alternative to Russia’s pipe lines. That would be about the only thing that could help.
    But hey if it was not for the Oil Boom on PRIVATE land Obama’s dream of 5 and 6 dollar gas for our own good would be realized. Unemployment would be even higher under his cooked numbers and EPA. But we still do not produce enough to bring the price back down to 2$ and have extra to sell. If we had elected someone who understood Russia is in our back yard and not made a joke about it. We would be in a lot better shape.
    yuck yuck ha ha “80’s called” “a Rocky 4 policy” “Reset button” “I can see Russia from my house” all so funny just a laugh a minute from ignorant fools who now think they run the place.

    Sorry Harley, but the ignorant fools are those who think that if we had elected another fascist President, Russia would have been kept at bay. Hell, if McCain had won, we’d still be fighting in Iraq, and Iran, and gearing up for a war with Russia. What idiocy is that? The kind conservatives have jingoistic orgasms over.

    @Zuhlamon

    Um, McCain would have done what Obama is doing, which is follow the plan GW Bush laid out. But I know he would NOT have gone into Afghanistan with as many troops to die for poppy fields. “fascist President” Really? you have nothing so you go back to that? sad. But Russia would not have tried half of what it did had McCain won. Putin would not have tried and succeeded if we understood Russia to be a Geopolitical Threat. But instead Obama, Kerry and even Hillary were blind sided. When a running VP could have told them that given a chance Russia will invade and take Ukrane.
    Obama is an idiot on the world stage who has snubbed our allies and given power to those who wish to unbalance the world.
