Putin set to invade Ukraine with Russian military forces until 'normalization' restored
Kiev Post ^ | 3-1-2014 | Kyev Post

Russian President Vladimir Putin is poised to invade Ukraine with military forces after winning unanimous approval for taking such a step from the notoriously rubber-stamp upper house of parliament.

Members of the Russian Federation Council said that the troops are needed to protect the safety of millions of ethnic Russians in Ukraine and that the soldiers should stay until "the constitutional order is restored in Ukraine," which hints at a possible Russian attempt to return to power Viktor Yanukovych, ousted as Ukraine's president on Feb. 22, or install another Kremlin-friendly leader.

Obama’s taking careful notes for when he decides to exercise the same Martial Law on our individual states.

Putin the perfect liberal. Use a word that is totally undefined and redefine it to suit your purpose. At least control freaks are consistent.

Palin predicted this, and the Democrat/Media complex laughed at her.

I guess its time for Obama to put Russia on double-secret probation.

The steady succession of Leftists since Reagan to Obama with the possible exception of GW has weakened our military enough to possibly not be a threat to Russia or other aggressors. This obviously needs fixing and the Ukraine may not be an issue by the time we fix things. Nevertheless, we should do basically what the American People and Reagan did in the 80's to deal with Russia and any other aggressors in the future:

1) oust the current regime in Washington DC
2) get the economy back on right footing by HUGE CUTS IN GOVERNMENT AND TAXES and letting the free market do what it does best: CREATE WEALTH,
2) Build the military back up once again to the world's strongest (weakness not strength invites war), 3) take down the NSA and other threats to American citizens
4) build up our intelligence community to make it first rate

Whatever aggressor-country hotspots including the Ukraine are relevant after 1-4 is done...

5) with good and verified intelligence, we should covertly work with the forces of freedom in the threatened country. In the case of the Ukraine if it’s still relevant, discern whether eastern Ukraine wants to join Russia and whether western Ukraine does not,
6) THEN, with actual and overwhelming force at our disposal, we should condemn the aggressor (Russia in this case) for threatening to invade the threatened country (Ukraine in this case) and move forces into the area with full intention of defending those that want to remain free.
7) we should seek diplomacy with the aggressor nation on the basis of our strength not weakness and any treaties or agreements should be based on “trust but verify.”

Is “normalization” defined as re-establishment of the Soviet Union?

According to the disruptors here on FR, that means putting down those terrible “Neo-Nazis” who want freedom and handing Ukraine over to Putin. FR seems to have become rife with NSA types seeking to create opinion through propaganda.

“the troops are needed to protect the safety of millions of ethnic Russians”

The exact excuse Hitler used to invade his German-speaking neighbors.

Well hell, I guess the Mexican army will be showing up here soon if we don't get moving on that amnesty bill...
