Washington Post, by Will Englund, Carol Morello*

Posted By:FlyRight, 3/18/2014 6:43:07 AM

MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin put the annexation of Crimea on a fast track Tuesday morning, ordering the drafting of an accession agreement between Crimea and Russia.Later in the day he will be making an unusual address to a joint session of the Russian parliament, where he will lay out his plans for the region.The speech comes as a defiant Russia shows no sign of bending to American or European pressure over the Crimea crisis, which has turned into the sharpest confrontation between Moscow and the West since the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979. The Crimean parliament voted Monday

How great would it be to have Dick Cheney as president right now.I can´t think of a single person who has his kind of wisdom right now.Not to mention the gravitas to tackle Putin and our absurd domestic policies.

King Putt and his minions are still clueless but they can give you the winning basketball brackets if you like.

Putin has two more years of "dingbat flexibility." Next comes the balance of Ukraine, then Belarus, Latvia and Lithuania. By the end of this mess,Putin will be knocking on the doors of Berlin surveying it for another wall.

Biden will be holding the transit pole while Dingbat hisself will be on his knees putting his finger under the plumb-bob to mark the corner stone!

Here is my position, for what it is worth:

The people of Crimea should have the right of self determination. If a people want to be independant, or join with another country, they should have that right. For two reasons, we did it our selves in 1776 and the people of the various states reserve that right in the future. If Texas wants to ceede the union, it should not have to seek the approval of the other 56 states. er....49.

That said..... I am "assuming" that the people of Crimea wanted this.

What I object to is Russia´s intervention into Crimea. Something that the US is powerless to stop. And the posturing of Obama just makes him look like a clown.

Even if we claim that the election was ´fixed´, Putin could make the same claim about our own ´elections´, with great credibility.

Rigged elections have consequences.

Losing one´s moral authority comes at a great price.

The only way we could stop Putin is to send in troops. Anyone for that except McCain? Who´s willing to go themselves or send their sons or daughters? Sending military aid and supplies always leads to sending "advisors", then a small military contingent, then all out we´re there for years losing troops and treasure. Our interests in Crimea certainly don´t warrant that. So what´s a solution for what Obama should do? Everyone criticizes, but there never is a solution given that will work.

I have not seen anyone seriously dispute that the majority in Crimea wanted to join Russia. So the moral basis for objection is that Russia intervened in Ukraine´s internal affairs by defending the Crimean regional government against Ukraine.

Frankly, I don´t see any reason for indignation. The Ukrainian government lost its moral authority when it deposed its elected president in a kind of anti-Russian putsch. The alternative to Russia´s intervention could well have been years of civil war, accompanied by ineffectual posturing by the UN, finally leading to the same result we have today.

Realpolitik might demand that the West check Russia´s expansionist aims, if it has them. But this is hardly the time or the place. We are led by incompetents who, when you get down to it, are also anti-Western. The best we can hope for is that Europe gets its act together and finds a way, going forward, to protect its own interests.

I would as soon see Obama tried for a host of domestic offenses, but I would look the other way if he took every step to thwart Russia short of open war, including support of anti-Russian terrorists. Let the people have self-determination, but Russia can´t be rewarded for this conquest. Any vote should have been done without so much as the appearance of outside influence. Putin the aggressor deserves the same fate as Hitler.

#9 – There are alternatives to military intervention. There is economic warfare that would drive down the price of oil upon which Russia is dependent. We could announce the building of the Keystone Pipeline, start drilling in the Gulf and off-shore, open up interior drilling on federal land, fast track fracking, and fire up those coal electrical plants. But all those options are off the table for Zippy. He’s either more afraid of his enviro-commie base than Russia, or their all on the same page for the “fundamental transformation” of America. In my mind, it’s more the latter than former.

Ethnic Russians living in a part of the world that is historically Russian, religiously Russian, etc etc choosing to be Russian. What a shock! I am not willing to spend US blood and treasure to save people who don´t want to be saved because our twisted liberal media, Obama, and the EU (since when do we trust these sources??) tell me we need to "DO SOMETHING!!!" Sorry.

I do wish people would get over our American sense of superiority that somehow has bestowed on us the omniscient power to determine the fate of every living creature on this planet according to our will. Wild idea. How about we clean up our own backyard? I mean our last few "interventions" have netted us what exactly? How about we stay home and deal with our crumbling economy, out of control spending, porous border, liberal know it all media, the bozo in the White House.. just to name a few.

Just out of curiosity, has anyone seen any actual vote numbers?
All I have seen is ´96.8%´ or whatever for Russia.
How many people voted?
How many voted each way?
How many eligible voters are there?
How much of the graveyard vote did the Russians turn out? (Hey Rahm and Zippy, watch Putie to see how it´s REALLY done!)
Just wondering.

For what it´s worth, Crimea is too important to Russia to let it go, even if the people there DID want to stay with Ukraine.
From what I have read, most of the people in Crimea and eastern Ukraine would rather be part of Russia, while western Ukraine would rather be part of the EU.
It would not surprise me if Ukraine ended up being split into east-and-west sections, and that might make more people who live there happier than any other solution.
Just my 2-cents-worth.

Watching the influx of unaccompanied minors crossing our southwestern border daily, a reasonable man could conclude that we are living out the fevered dreams of a dystopian novel. The United States has lost a basic aspect of sovereignty. Control over its borders is a relic of the past.Having traversed Mexico with the help of drug cartels freely operating human trafficking networks, Central American minors are voluntarily entering the United States through the Rio Grande Valley. They’re shepherded to the border, where they cross on their own and seek apprehension by Department of Homeland Security agents,

The NYPD pilots “observed flying object[s] at 2,000 feet in vicinity of the George Washington Bridge, then circling heading toward the helicopter,’’ a police report said. “The officers were forced to change their course to avoid a collision.”One source called it a “very dangerous” scenario.“Although [drones] may only weigh a

The Supreme Court led by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. showed again this year that it is playing a long game, writing opinions that move the law in small but steady steps in a conservative direction.At first glance, many of its decisions appear modest, and the justices themselves downplayed them as narrow and tightly targeted. But they also set the stage for broader rulings, and liberals voiced concern about their long-term impact.Many rely on well-established rights, such as freedom of speech and free exercise of religion, but extend those rights for the first time to corporations, wealthy donors and

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
