“Any discussion about the future of Ukraine must include the legitimate government of Ukraine. In 2014, we are well beyond the days when borders can be redrawn over the heads of democratic leaders.” – Barack HUSSEIN Obama
Bloviations…bloviations and NOTHING more for words are cheap when NOT backed up by action…military action…period.
And while Obama bloviates on and on it appears, at least on the surface, that Crimea does want to become part of Russia, with Russia saying it would welcome Crimea with open arms, especially since 60% of Crimea’s population are ethnic Russians. But Ukraine and the U.S. are poo-pooing the fact that on March 16th, Crimea will hold a referendum on whether to join Russia or remain part of Ukraine, with a ballot in Russian, Ukrainian, and Crimean Tatar that reads in part, “Are you for the reaffirmation of the constitution of the Crimean Republic of 1992 and for Crimea’s status as part of Ukraine?”
