Guess we should have thought about this before Kosovo, Syria, Egypt, Libya, etc.
Definitely before declaring victory over war and dismantling our defenses. Obama won the Peace Prize y’know.
I guess so, as the operational tactics and media tactics the US used in those operation were used by the Russians in their responses.
Who woulda thunk they would learn how, from our own Progressive Socialists?
According to the reasoning behind those invasions, there was no act of war, because there were no U.S. boots on the ground. (Not true — but, as always, that’s beside the point.) If the Russians avoid putting boots on the ground, can they take over eastern Ukraine without violating international laws?
Here’s what I’ve learned about U.S. foreign policy in the past 20 years of observation:
- Republicans express complete disdain for international laws, and international organizations — yet, they follow every step of every required process, and comply with every rule, before invading another country.
- Democrats express complete support for international laws and organizations — yet, they ignore every required process, ignore every organization, and flout every rule, whenever they want to invade another country.
