I've noticed a disturbing number of pro-Russia freepers carrying this same message on behalf of Moscow. I guess all Putin has to do is call someone a 'fascist' and that makes anything he does okay. Pretty sad reasoning.
There are over 800 member companies in the American Chamber of Commerce in Russia.
Boeing (a key US defense contractor) brags about having operated in Russia since 1972.
In neocon land Russia is "the big bear enemy", but in the American business and financial world, Russia is a business partner.
Hundreds of US businesses also have business operations inside Ukraine.
Since 1991, the pace of both Russia's and Ukraine's business and trade with the US has greatly increased.
Very weird that Americans would think of these two nations as our enemies.
Well, except for the elites' constant brainwashing of generations of American conservative rank-and-file, which until recently I was wholeheartedly one of.
I'm not pro-Russian at all, my family has been in American since the 1600's; I am an American through-and-through.
I've just woken up to the idea that I was being a bit foolish responding to every call to hatred and anger towards perceived international "enemies", and that the real enemies are the transnational elites that are calling the shots and have the nation (well, pretty much every nation) basically enslaved through debt, taxes, drugs, corruption and immorality.

Neocons used to have us quaking in our boots about Iran.
