The west are provoking Russia into this, this is bad for the world, Russia takes the bait of the "revolution", and they just decide to invade, it is a disputed area but Russia made this first move, they just said they won't sit back while the country of Ukraine changes leadership.
I think I said I am not pro-anything, so I am not pro-Russia, the elected president should stay if he was elected by the people, if they people tire of him, then elections are called for as they are, this using the situation for global means does not suit well, all sides involved should let the Ukraine decide what they do.
Of course in a 50-50 situation it's really easy to manipulate the people into going against each other.
The two sides have opposite perspectives, and it seems as if neither are willing to step into the other's shoes to understand why they are taking the side that they are. Putin's statement that he didn't send any Russian troops is a fallacy, but his concern about fascist groups isn't completely farfetched.
March 16th will be an important date regardless of what the result of the referendum may be. Crimea is a unique territory and solving the tension that's going on there can't be solved by one party.
haha I just think its funny that Obama is accusing Russia for violating international laws..........LOL how many international laws has the US broke in the past decade? hilarious!
I'm still lost as to why negotiations broke down originally after Yanukovych offered the opposition new elections sooner than planned. That was during the Sochi Olympics so I can't imagine Putin was responsible for the break down (this whole deal including the Olympics has to have been somewhat embarrassing) nor do I really understand why Yanukovych would break down talks after giving in. Most places I frequent suggest the more radical element in the opposition were responsible which makes sense I guess since they did immediately demand he step down and the old Constitution be put back in place. Kinda reeks of heavy EU and US support.
The region of Donetsk has just claimed independence.
Odessa isn't too far behind.
Also I assume everybody saw the clip of the Svoboda Party members beating the Communist Party member up during his speech? Also I read Latvia banned the Russian language? Or maybe it's been that way for awhile now, I have no idea.

Also, what do you guys think about Donetsk declaring independence?
Can that really be considered as Donetsk declaring independence? It seems people are actually downplaying the events there. Either way, the Russians blame the west and we blame the Russians. Same shit, different toilet.
Well, a sector of the population in Donetsk.
And man did the media in this country run with that report about the leaflet telling Jewish residents to register in Donetsk. You would think that today they would have blaring headlines about how clueless they are...
USA Today article from a few days ago, but how exactly is that an overreaction?

So how do you think Putin will respond to the paratroopers Obama is sending to Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia?
More posturing on their side perhaps. We participate in a lot of these training exercises as a show of force.
