You can stuff the support! We are done sending support.. Our support needs to stay right here in the USA...As for our president? They are laughing at him everyday....

So because Americans wouldn't be dying, it doesn't matter? I guess so, seeing as they are from a "useless" country in your opinion.

Your attitude is why 9/11s happen.

That's the truth.

"... without giving money or blood. It's called support. "

I guess this statement skipped by a synapse or two.

It seems doubtful especially since they can just keep financing the anti-western faction and eventually get what they want.

My family emigrated to America from the Ukraine after WWII, I still have family over there, so I have a little more investment in this than most. I don't think Putin will put troops on the ground. Ukraine is after all the 4th largest nuclear power on earth. With this current instability, who knows who has the keys to those nukes? This could get ugly very fast. In fact, this couldn't have happened at a worse time for Putin, with the eyes of the world focused on Sochi.

As for "surplus populations", is that you Ted Nudgent? That is the same rhetoric used by Nazis along with "Sub-human Mongrels". Great company some people keep.

The Russians dont care what the US or EU thinks, they invaded Georgia without a second thought.

What friggin sense does that make? If we minded our own business around the world, Muslims would leave us alone. If we didn't try to poison their way of life they wouldn't hate us...If we had left the Reds in control of their half of the world I wouldn't have gone to the Gulf and my kid would not be in Afcrapistan. If people want to throw off the yoke around their necks the can do it themselves....

Oddly, I agree with you. Our unbiased support of Israel and anti-Arab policies did contribute somewhat to 9/11. There is some value in detente. Still because of oil, we could never, as a superpower, stay away from the Middle East. This country needs energy and power, and Oil is still the best source of power our infrastructure supports.

Putin doesn't need to invade the Ukraine. A new election is likely to see a President with allegiance to Russia:
