Ukraine's Crimean peninsula declared itself independent Monday after its residents voted overwhelmingly to secede and join Russia, while the United States and the European Union slapped sanctions against some of those who promoted the divisive referendum.

Ukraine's political turmoil has become Europe's most severe security crisis in years and tensions have been high since Russian troops seized control of Crimea two weeks ago. Large numbers of Russian troops are also massed near the border with Russian-speaking eastern Ukraine, which has sharp political differences with the country's new government in Kiev.

Moscow, however, considers the vote legitimate and Russian President Putin was to address both houses of parliament Tuesday on the Crimean situation

I’ve heard that John (the gigolo) Kerry has threatened to marry the richest woman in Russia.
From my point of view, Crimea didn’t declare independence, Crimea declared subservience.
Which really don’t hurt Russia. Countries do not abandon vital interests in the face of foreign pressure.
If the West thinks the sanctions slapped on Russia today will deter Russia from approving Crimea’s request for accession, it is sadly mistaken.
This is not some small country that could be forced to do the West’s bidding. This is the largest country on earth and a nuclear superpower.
“Ive heard that John (the gigolo) Kerry has threatened to marry the richest woman in Russia.”
Yes, a Borscht heiress.

He’s got a lot of ketch-ing up to do.
Crimea was going to go back to Russia eventually.
This is Putin’s “freebie.”
I heard that Obama and Kerry threatened to unfriend Putin on Facebook.
“Which really dont hurt Russia. Countries do not abandon vital interests in the face of foreign pressure.”
Exactly. This is a dog and pony show to say that the Democrats were tough.
Kind of like Los Angeles declaring independence so that it can join-up with Mexico.
And Soros funded, firebomb throwing Neo-Nazis overthrowing a democratically elected government does not?
If old burlap-faced sorass doesn’t like Ukraine joining Russia than it must be good.
Some healing of the world.....
Never imagined I would envy Russians for their leader. At least he loves his country and has killed for his country. Those are two simple things I would like in a President. Just wow. We’re in the rabbit hole, bizzaro world, alice in wonderland stuff now.
If lady gagme getting vomited on at a concert in austin is not the sign of cultural rot, I don’t know what is.
