I guess Vlad wasn’t expecting any resistance.

"Un Security"

Hmmm - Between Russia and the UN and an absent guardian of freedom (America), I'd say "un-security" is pretty accurate.

The Russkie Pre-Invasion force in East Ukraine had a gun fight today with Ukrainian forces. They’ve basically already taken over portions of East Ukraine along an important invasion route, setup checkpoints around city, and have their hired goons walking around with baseball bats, choking and punching people who look at them funny. The Russkies will probably claim that all this, which they themselves caused, is proof that Ukraine is in chaos, and that ethnic Russians are in danger. We MIGHT even see them declare their justification for invading East Ukraine tonight.

Several more cities are now reporting pro-Russian demonstrations

The Ukraine Pres saying today that Ukraine and Russia are now “at War” was a pretty damn dumb thing to say.

You’re still on that crap? The Ukrainian parliament still has the very same representatives they started with. There is no Fascist dictatorship in Kiev. This is Russian lies.

These “demonstrators” are run by the “little green men,” Russian Spetsnaz without their patches, as well as a small minority of extremists, who are coordinating the take over of East Ukraine. Russia is indeed at war with Ukraine, and nothing is going to stop the invasion. All we are seeing now is just the propaganda narrative being established so they can have lies to say as their storm troopers murder Ukrainians.

If you have been paying attention, the OFFICIAL Russian line is following Bill Clinton’s justifications for intervening in Kosovo, almost to the letter.

Right Sector wasn't even a political party until a couple of weeks ago, maybe even less, unless you are referring to local seats. Either way, even Right Sector was being led by a Jewish commander during the Maidan.

Except for one little detail—the Serbians were exterminating their citizens, and the Ukrainians are not.

I saw some of that video posted on youtube. It was Slavic pavement apes on the loose after a few plastic bottles of apple wine.

Also the detail that Serbia invaded an independent Kosovo which, along with several other regions, had broken with the communists in Belgrade years before.

There is no comparison with Kosovo except for the most simple-minded reductionists.

Where are you getting your information from? Perhaps you should ditch this source. Right Sector has exactly 0 seats in the parliament and in the cabinet.

Nonsense. They were putting down a separatist rebellion.

Love to see the neocons show their true colors and side with Muslims against Christians.

Open borders in America, Islamic conquest in Europe — that’s the kind of “conservative” 1rudeboy is. What is he trying to conserve? Certainly not Western civilization.

LOL!

Kosovo was autonomous region of Serbia when NATO attacked Serbia.
US/NATO attacked without any UN approval.
Also Serbia never invaded any country.

No, I've been hearing the BS folks like you spew since it happened. If what the US did in Kosovo was wrong, then what Russia did in Georgia, et al., is wrong. If what Russia did in Georgia was right (for whatever reason), then what the U.S. did in Kosovo was right. Pick one, finally.

If Russia should be given a pass for what it does because of what happened in Kosovo, then the crap ended with Georgia, and the people who reflexively feel the need to defend Russia whenever it decides to push someone around should stop whining about it.

Looks like something is coming real fast now. More changes to the map—I fear. Lets hope things don’t get out of hand. Now would be a bad time for a World War. (Like there is a good time for WW III).

“If you have been paying attention, the OFFICIAL Russian line is following Bill Clinton’s justifications for intervening in Kosovo, almost to the letter.”

That is such a false statement it amounts to an obscenity, because the Serbs had murdered thousands of people in a genocidal rampage of ethnic cleansing before Clinton could be moved to act and approach the United Nations. The whole genocidal fiasco in the SFRY was instigated by the Serbs and backed by Russia.

But I don’t think any one sees a way out of the crisis.

“Ms. Power is right about that - the result of Western meddling. But I don’t think any one sees a way out of the crisis.”

My thought, as well.
We aren’t going to start WW3 over Ukraine, I knew when Clinton bloviated about Peace-In-Our-Time! that it was stupid for Ukraine to count on any Democrat standing up.

Europe can whine, but they are too dependent on Russian Energy to do much else, including sanctions, and will be for a decade, IF the Environuts allow them to do anything about it.

Russia is holding all the cards here, handed to them on a silver platter by Obama and the Soros NGO’s.

She's the idiot that thought toppling Khaddafi was a good idea for some strange incomprehensible reason.

Libya is now wide open for Al-Queda to use as a base of operations against Europe and the US.

Many did and many more did not. Their gratitude or lack of it are irrelevant to the larger responsibility for upholding the basic principles of human rights, including the non-Muslins in the SFRY.

And, as far as I can tell, we intervened on the wrong side. Of course, with them exterminating each other at every chance, there was no correct side.

WOW...
Russian UN ambassador blasting Kerry, BY NAME, saying the State Department is speaking out of both sides of his mouth. Kerry says one thing to Lavrov on the phone, and State Department wonk says the opposite a few hours later.

Now they are noting BIDEN’s own words, which is another screwup for him.

Did libs not think that electing two incompetents was going to have REAL consequences?
