Russias 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 Ukraines 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, five years, ...oh, wait...
Terrific. Just terrific.
Obama doesn’t own Congress, yet.
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.
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)
Oh yes, and to earn his Nobel Peace Prize, he reducing our military to before WW2 strength. Happy Days are here again!
“tried to humiliate Putin by sending a delegation of homosexuals”
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.
Hell, FDR couldn't get a unanimous vote after the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
