Oops, I said the Tatars were 30 percent. They are 13 percent actually. I inflated the numbers some how in my mind.

You realize you’re defending Nikita Khruschev, right? His word was law and he transferred Crimea from Russia to Ukraine without the Crimea being given a say in the decision at the time. Before that, it was always part of Russia.

You and the rest of the West are defending the edict of a long-dead Communist dictator. And when Crimea seeks to overturn it in a democratic vote, you reflexively denounce it as “illegal.”

And the circumstances by which the new Crimean government took isn’t all that different from how the new Ukrainian government took office. Yet the West has an oddly selective idea of democracy.

Just wondering since neither the US nor the West have a real stake in Crimea but its of great importance to Russia.
