How is this more aggregious than what the US and NATO did with Kosovo except not bombing a sovereign nation that had done nothing to us. Or Libya for that matter?

The Republic of Crimea is considered to be accepted into Russia from Tuesday, March 18 the date of signing the Agreement between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Crimea
"Considered to be accepted" is eerily similar to "deemed to be passed", the sleazy way that ObamaCare was forced on unwilling Americans. I wish liberals had the honesty to just say what they are doing:
"Russia is seizing the Crimea because the West is led by a bunch of sissies."
"Obama, Pelosi, and Reid are forcing ObamaCare on Americans because so many were dumb enough to vote a controlling block of known socialists into power, and this massive law will give the ruling class literal power of life and death over any little people who might otherwise oppose FedGov.

This will start a wave of secessions and acquisitions all over the world. Europe will shatter, China will expand, muslim immigrant regions will secede.
Do all these people need to get new ‘papers’ & new passports?
