...

Then you have to go to war now. What is it with these statements from the media and others. It is not an ‘intervention’, and it has already happened. They are there right now!

Well it would likely be a short war.

My guess is we won’t really do much here...could be a quid-pro-quo for Syria...all arranged.

He should read the Wiki page about the Russian partitioning of Georgia before making this speech.

Arseny Yatsenyuk, prime minister of Ukraine, says any military intervention by Russia would lead to war and promised that the Americans would win this one, for sure.

This minister needs to get with the current White House Orwellian Media Groupthink.

Last night they called it an “uncontested Arrival”, not an invasion.

If you punch me in the nose again, I’m gonna get really mad. If you punch me in the nose a third time there will be grave consequences. Now stop punching me in the nose or I will draw a redline! I’m really getting mad about this now, stop it or I will say something really mean.

Here’s what Mikheil Saakashvili (ex president of Georgia), currently in Kiev, told the WSJ reporter there (paraphrasing): by destabilizing Georgia, Putin prevented the country from joining the EU and NATO, and this is what his aim is in Ukraine, permanent destabilization.

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace– but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

Text of Patrick Henry’s speech to the Virginia House of Burgesses

Just to be clear: I think it is appropriate for Americans to stand here idle. It’s not our war. But Ukrainians seem to be undecided as to whether they should do something. They don’t seem to grasp that the war has begun, and they are in it, and they are losing.

“permanent destabilization.”

The CIA does it. I am sure the KGB has done it, too.

Imaging Mexico bidding to join Warsaw Pact in 1979?
What has to be a US reaction?

Well, one of the big issues in WWI was the Zimmerman telegram which Germany sent to Mexico, hinting that Mexico might benefit by joining up with the Axis.

But the Warsaw Pact was a military alliance of the Cold War era. The EU is not that. Ukraine was moving toward an economic alliance with Europe and Russia saw part of the Empire slipping away. I understand why Russia did not want to see that happen -- but it's not quite the same as Mexico joining the Warsaw Pact. This wasn't a military thing until Russia sent in troops.

Galician Nazis has a NATO membership as their dream, just like a Georgian dictator at the time.

We invaded Grenada to stop the Soviets from building a military base there.

So by aiding Georgia and Ukraine, is that not the same thing as what the Soviets were trying to do in our backyard?

I do see some similarities. But we are not the country we used to be.
Europe is being invaded. They've had a free ride for a long, long time. If Europe wants to oppose the Russian bear, then they can do so. I say the US should leave it alone this time.

Tartars have been a problem before, and Ukraine could become another Kosovo.

He has to go to war if his troops will follow his orders.

I bet they won't.

Putin has won—now he may well be planning the May Victory Party and parade in Moscow. He has the Criema now now, the land link to Russia is coming, but will he take the rest of the nation? The T-90s are warming up their engines, the Mig -34’s are on the tarmac. Ukraine would be best to stand down at the moment and work on a treaty.
