Vladimir Putin was overseeing Russian tank manoeuvres yesterday as his troops tightened their grip on the Crimea. Ukraine has effectively lost control of the peninsula and admits it has ‘no military options’ to make Moscow withdraw. Although the Russian president has kept his silence on the crisis, his foreign minister said Russian troops were protecting people from ‘ultra-nationalist threats’ and would be staying put. Justifying military action, Sergei Lavrov said: ‘This is a question of defending our citizens and compatriots, ensuring human rights, especially the right to life.’

a question of defending our citizens and compatriots

The same words used by Hitler as a pretext for invading the Sudetenland.

And the world watched and did nothing...

Sudentland never belonged to Germany. Soviet Union offered to defend Czechoslovakia in 1938 but Britain and France caved.

Crimea belonged to Russia since 1783.

Putin’s puttin’ on the blitz!

Obama is putting on the shits!

There is a difference!

Obama the Democrat traitor warned Putin that “He’s on the wrong side of history”.

Putin told Obama, “Schmuck”. “History is written by the winner”, and that ain’t you.

Favorite chant at the Moscow Military School:

Putin’s got the spirit, Putin’s got the guts,
Putin’s got Obama by the nuts,
Pull team, pull!

I would bet a hundred bucks that 0bama’s advisers had to explain Sudetenland to 0bama twice, and the significance of it three or four times. And I’ll bet a thousand bucks he still can’t spell Sudetenland. Or tell you where it is.

Never said it did.

But there were German speaking people there, and that was enough for Hitler.

There are Russian speaking people in Ukraine and Crimea. That, from what I am seeing, is enough for Vlad.

History may not repeat, but it rhymes...

It’s being leaked President Obama and his cabinet are planning a covert military operation called Shuck and Jive.

I found the article where the Night Wolves motorcycle gang helped replace the mayor days before the invasion. This happened on 2-25 in Sevastopol.

So he creates unrest, replaces the leaders, who then ask him to help. Classic KGB operation

Form the article

“We will not submit to the regime in Kiev,” Dmitry Sinichkin, president of the local branch of motorcycle club the Night Wolves told the crowd in Sevastopol.
The Night Wolves are closely linked to Russia’s political elite. Putin has visited the group in the city several times, on one occasion in 2010 riding a three-wheeled Harley Davidson alongside the bikers.
After his speech, Sinichkin told RIA Novosti that fresh bloodshed in Ukraine’s ongoing political crisis was inevitable.
Rally-goers waved the Russian red, white and blue tricolor and yelled the football fan-style chant of “Ros-si-ya, Ros-si-ya, Ros-si-ya,” as they endorsed calls to create self-defense squads with police cooperation and withhold taxes from Kiev.

“...Crimea belonged to Russia since 1783...”

That statement is not true. It has belonged to the Ukraine for the last 60 years.

It is amazing how much Obama is like Chamberlain. He bows before our enemies and bullies his countrymen and allies.

I have to think he used the term “right to life” specifically to Obama.
