TWEET:
Commander at Belbek just gave emotional speech to troops, “we are strong in spirit.” Followed by anthem. Seems to be winding down. #Crimea

What did that foolish Commander expect to ‘accomplish’ by telling his troops to “stand their ground”...when over 70 bases had already gone to Russia, as well as Crimea had already voted to go with Russia and basically a done deal.

Not only were his troops lives put in danger but wasn't this the same commander who confronted the Russians before and put on a display of his troops marching... until the Admiral of the Black Feet arrived and negotiated the situation?

Might be he wanted a war one way or another.
