AFP via Yahoo ^ | March 19, 2014

Kiev (AFP) - Ukraine's acting president on Wednesday said Crimea's separatist leaders had three hours to release the detained head of the ex-Soviet state's navy or face "an adequate response".

Acting president Oleksandr Turchynov said in a statement that "unless Admiral (Sergiy) Gayduk and all the other hostages -- both military and civilian ones -- are released, the authorities will carry out an adequate response... of a technical and technological nature."

Ehhhhh? Somehow I don’t think that this demand is going to be honored in quite the way the Ukrainian President envisions. If we know one thing it’s that Putin will not be backed into a corner.

Now, THAT's quite a response.

I know there are a certain type of FReepers, call them the Putinista ones, who are dearly hoping that Russia will unleash a punitive war against the upstarts in Ukraine who dared to defy Putin. They’re keen for blood. Let the bare-chested, man-boobed Putin show that he still has the will to inflict pain and suffering on the Ukrainian people, like the Tsars of old, like Putin’s KGB predecessors who starved millions of Ukrainians for Stalin. Then, they can all have a grand laugh and say how swell Putin really is.

Not at all...I believe what most of us want is a negotiated settlement, as should have happened back in 94. The Budapest Memorandum, give me a break, that was a Clintonian piece of garbage.

That’s funny.
It’s true that in Russian a woman name is always ending with the vowel “a”.
Romanov’s wife is called Romanova.

the revolution didn’t happen overnight. the founding fathers spent decades with several English kings trying to work things out through whatever legal means of recourse they had available.

Correct.

They did not, however, fawn over tyrants.

Putin-worshippers are not the moral descendants of Hamilton, Jay and Madison.
