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

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.

As a resident of Delaware, I am heartfully sorry that this idiot ever escaped our borders.

What a maroon.

The borders of “Europe” have been changing by force for the last 2,000 years.

The USA bombed the hell out of Serbia to forcibly change its borders, making them give up the province of Kosovo they’d had since the middle ages.

Show us where a border has been altered by force and a country occupied in Europe?

There are no similarities to World War II or any of the armed conflicts of the past century.

Only the US and NATO can do it, right?

Who really believes half the countries in Eastern Europe aren't just as worried about someone like Billy Jeff needing to get a scandal off the front-page and bombing them into agreeing part of their country should become a new Muslim State as they are about what Russia is up to?
