Russian lawmakers OK use of military force in Ukraine
Q13 Fox.com ^ | March 1, 2014 | John White

Russia’s upper house of parliament voted Saturday to approve the use of military force in Ukraine. The vote was unanimous.

Russian President Vladimir Putin had asked the upper house of parliament for approval to send Russian troops into Ukraine’s Crimea region to normalize the political situation there, the Kremlin said Saturday.

Due to the “extraordinary situation in Ukraine,” Putin said, there are threats to the lives of Russian citizens and Russian military personnel based in the southern Crimean region.

It comes on the same day that the new pro-Russian leader of Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov, asked Putin for help in maintaining peace in the Black Sea peninsula — where Russia has a major naval base at Sevastopol.

Obama tried to humiliate Putin by sending a delegation of homosexuals to the Olympics. This is Putin’s response.

Russia will never easily give up it’s black sea warm water ports. From there they ship weapons through Turkey and ultimately to Syria, Iran, and Afganistan. Also the gas pipelines that feed Europe end there. If not a recognizable American interest now, this will become an American interest when Russia demands higher cost for it’s energy and those market conditions double energy prices Stateside, or when an Islamoterrorist organization launches a Russian nuke at America.

I just wish we had a leader like Putin... and one that at least pretends to back democracy like Putin.

The Russian tanks will roll into the Ukraine as did Hitler's tanks move into the Studetenland using the same excuse and Kerry will play Chamberlain.

Aint that a hoot?

Projecting American influence now consists of sending homos, and having sissies in the media hiss at nations that aren’t “gay-OK”.

So, what if the gov’t of Mexico wanted to send military into the U.S. because of threats to the lives of Mexican citizens?

Didn’t we go into Grenada on the pretext of the Medical students being in harms’ way?

(Of course I know the real reason was to stop the Cubans and Soviets from building an airfield)

You may be on to something there.

And the Duma has asked Putin to recall Russia’s ambassador to the US.

Obama-HRC-Jon Carry. What a trio.

They are blessed that the GOP is so pathetic. An actual opposition would win 70 Senate seats and put a stop to this nonsense.

He DID stop the warming - reversed it, in fact.

America has as much petro and natural gas reserves in it's own territory as Russia, so paying any price the Russians may impose is purely voluntary on our part for putting the progressive leftist traitors in charge of the US government.

However, Russia does have the power to punish Europe's Socialists, Fascists, Aristocrats, and Ruling Elite. How many Americans and how much of their tax money should we send to Islamicize Europe?

...or when an Islamoterrorist organization launches a Russian nuke at America.

Good thing we don't need to worry about Pakistani nukes.

Notice it was for Ukraine not just Crimea. Crimea will definitely split off and become Russian puppet. Eastern Ukraine is another matter.

They already do, they're called Drug Cartels and they're armed and financed by Obama, Holder and the ATF.

The FBI and DHS prosecute Americans who resist the cross border Drug traffickers.

They only care about the drug trade network, though. They care naught about the average illegale, as far as I know.

The vote was unanimous.

Hell, FDR couldn't get a unanimous vote after the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

The trouble is that for all the shale oil, boom talk, US recources have not created a supply/demand effect on market energy prices. That may be a result of US policy, but it is moot to the American worker who pays close to $80.00 now for a fill up. The Pakistani army is supplied by China, why would American Interest not be worried about that? Do you believe China is America’s ally?

Putin is a Russian Patriot acting in Russian interests asking the Russian Duma for support.

FDR was an American Socialist Ruling Elitist, acting in Communist's interests, and Obama is an America hating Kenyan acting in radical Islam's interest.

Still surprised?

That would require me to be a Bill Clinton supporting American Democrat and receive campaign contributions from the Communist Chinese Army in exchange for advanced ballistic missile staging, MIRV and warhead miniaturization technology, so no, I am not a DemoRat.

Good, glad to know you sir. America will get involved, you can count on it. Who benefits? The Oligarcy. Who pays...you know the answer to that too I suspect.
