    Putin - saying no force to be used? Who believes him?

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/...A1Q1E820140304


    Putin: military force would be 'last resort' in Ukraine ^^^

    Of course what he doesn't say it that its also the first choice out of a list of two.

    Dont think of the russian troops as soliders ... just undocumented immigrants

    Why is this news that a KGB Colonel is invading a neighboring country. The Ruskies have been doing this since 1945.

    Why is it news that Ukrainians are dissatisfied with their "government"? They are NEVER satisfied for more than a year or two. What I find curious is how little play is given to the attitudes of Western Ukrainians towards Eastern Ukrainians.

    I have spoken with a few of my Russian friends about this. They have told me that Russians consider the Ukraines "uppity"

    So Putin continues to talk (while he moves troops, ships, armor, weapons, int the area. obama continues to talk, talk, talk "as rome burns". Not even Europe will come to their aid. Putin knows it, you know it, and he WILL get away with it.

    I heard a reporter ask yesterday if the Glory of the USA is on the decline and are we just a power, not a super power. It only took a generation.

    Pres. Obama is doing the same thing GWB did 2008 when Putin authorized the occupation of Georgia.

    My wife is a Russian Ukrainian. She remembers even back in Soviet times that on field trips to western Ukraine they were warned about getting beaten up if they spoke Russian. The fights and bickering between Ukraine and Russia go back hundreds of years, and were it not for the Khrushchev giving Crimea to the Ukrainian SSR, I doubt this would even be an issue.

    Most of the Russians I know consider Ukrainians to be childish, lazy thieves. Ukrainians blame Russians for everything they do wrong.

    My wife has an anecdote:

    An American walks up to an apple tree, sees there are more apples than he can eat, takes a couple, shares some and sells the rest.
    A Russian walks up to an apple tree, sees there are more apples than he can eat, eats as many as he can eat and walks away.
    A Ukrainian walks up to an apple tree, sees there are more apples than he can eat, takes a bite out of every apple to keep anyone else from getting one.
