Vice President Joe Biden is drawing parallels between Russia’s interference in Ukraine and the world wars of the last century.

Biden says Ukraine’s struggles start with Russia’s acute violation of rules that the 20th century taught us must be upheld. He says Russia has violated the fundamental principle that Europe’s borders cannot be changed by military force. …

Ukraine’s disintegration is not the result of Russian pressure.

No border was changed in Europe by force and no one died in a war. As for Crimea, it was a democratic decision of the Crimean people to join Russia.

No one was coerced against their will to do something they didn’t want. All of which Vice President Biden conveniently forgets.

I hate to tell him this but if he looks at Europe’s borders over the last several centuries, they’ve been repeatedly altered by force.

Except in this century. Leaving Crimea aside, has Russia changed the borders of any country by force?

Biden’s statement is outright slander and is founded on pure ignorance.

No one is looking for a war.

I hope one never happens in Europe.

Every one has to behave responsibly and fulfill ALL existing agreements.

Russia will do what Putin says and the Euro Weenies, NATO, and the U.S. will pick their collective noses and scratch their butts wondering what to do.

Obama is Lumpy.

Biden is the Beaver.

Putin is Eddie Haskell.

I could have the first two mixed up.
