commented on Ron Paul Think Tank Executive Director Is a Crimea Truther
There are more Neo-Nazis in government in Russia and Hungary currently, then in Ukrainian government today.
Though Ultra Nationalists do exist in Ukraine, they are neither the majority of the people in Government, nor do they reflect majority opinion in Ukraine.
Though there is a Russian majority in Crimea, it isn't 75% or 93%.It is 55-60%. And it was a referendum without any options except to join Russia sooner or later, and in which the pro-separation voters were backed by Russian military personnel, who shouldn't have been their in the first place, except on their bases.
For you or anyone to characterize the referendum as free or fair is absolutely nonsensical and is the greatest conspiracy of all in this affair.

commented on Putin Takes Crimea. Next Up: Alaska.
@3 The idea that Crimea was a part of Russia is a nonsensical justification of Putin's invasion. Ukraine as an autonomous entity came into existence at the end of World War 1. A 30+ year difference with Crimea. If the fact that Russia controlled Crimea for hundreds of years is a good excuse, then Russia can lay claim to central Poland, all the Stans except Afghanistan and Pakistan, Finland, Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan and the Baltics. Which is why those nations, especially Poland and the Baltics, are so worried.
