HOW ABOUT THAT RUSSIAN INVASION OF UKRAINE????

To be honest that whole country was screwed the day they stopped being called THE Ukraine.

Honestly, I'm having trouble gauging Obama's war hawk ratio. On the one hand, he was perfectly willing to extend troop presence in Iraq and friends, bombing Libya or whatever, etc. On the other, he seems to be doing nothing but making noise about Ukraine. Then again, it's hard to gauge much of anything about him. He seems low on principles, and unless "vague corporate interests" is a monolithic group I don't even know who he is trying to keep happy.

it's almost like he thinks some wars are better for his public image than others :/ (See also, Libya, Syria)

I can't even discuss him with most people I know; they either see him as a Muslim terrorist, are deluded enough to think he's actually doing more good than harm, or are apparently afraid that saying anything negative about him somehow means they are racist.

You have to hand it to Putin, his play is excellent. He’s holding all the cards, the Ukraine uprising being a matter of opportunity. He gambled, of course, but the risk to him is minimal. There’s little anyone can do without risking further escalation, and Russia is economically too important to hit with sanctions. And while the rest of the world hesitates, chances only increase he’ll get away with it scotch free.

Just to add, I don’t support his blatant disregard of international law of course, and loath the idea of war breaking out (localy; I’m not refering to the idiot notion of WW3).

Barring the collapse of Western Civilization (which won't happen until our declining birth rates finally catch up to us) I don't think we'll ever have awesome massive wars again.

I don't think we'll ever have <war> again.


Probably more people shared that sentiment in 1918 than at any other point in history, and it's truly inspiring how humanity spent an entire generation only murdering the usual colonized before they outdid themselves.

Apparently Russia signed some things officially annexing Crimea.

I wonder if we can cause some political turmoil in Canada and then steal British Columbia.

Would that be analogous? Russia didn't cause the turmoil in the Ukraine... at least not singlehandedly... at least not that I know.
