In the meantime, BI has an interesting map out today:

    sorry, i should read this blog more carefully. who is dollar bill?

    • FWIW’s resident liberal, a mental defective in the Greenwich Democratic Party. We keep him around because he so aptly illustrates the worst of liberal “argument” which is to dismiss all opposition as “racist, sexist or driven by corporate greed and blame everything – everything – on Bush, Cheney and the Koch brothers. He’s good for a laugh.

    Eastern side is Russian speaking yes but not pro-Russian. Why have so many Russian speaking Ukrainians have fled the Crimea for middle and western Ukraine? Russian propaganda says they are Pro-Russian. Putin is afraid Russians will like the idea of getting rid of a dictator as did the Ukrainians. Can’t have that now can we?

    CF, have you seen the indifference displayed by Merkel and Germany on Ukraine? Pretty disappointing.

    But, again, besides hand wringing, which is the liberal and faux progressive/conservative normal stance, what do you want to do in Ukraine to contain the Russian Bear?

    Sweden, Lithuania and Poland have already moved to a pre-war footing, so, they feel threatened.

    Anyone who thinks European countries will go along with Mr. Obummers talk about sanctions on Russia need only look at the above chart!

    ‘Putin Doesn’t Threaten Our National Security, Obama Does’

    “Vladimir Putin isn’t the Easter Bunny. On the other hand, he isn’t Joseph Stalin. It takes a truly fevered imagination to see Russian forces in the Crimea as a prelude to Russian tanks rolling across Europe toward Berlin and Paris.

    Putin is a power player who cares more about Russia’s national interests, and Russian minorities in his near abroad, than in that mythical force known as world opinion. Would that America had a president who cared more about our interests than in promoting globalism and the left’s social agenda.

    The Crimea’s population is 60% ethnic Russian. For most of the past 800 years, the Ukraine has been Russian.

    An independent Ukraine disappeared in the 12th century. It reappeared briefly after the Bolshevik Revolution, only to be crushed by the Red Army and not emerge again until the fall of the Soviet Union. All of this fuss about the “territorial integrity” of a state born yesterday.

    The Russian-backed government in Kiev came to power democratically, but was ousted by the Maidan mob. We’re told that the interim government is pro-Western and pro-EU.

    When Reagan was president, the expression pro-Western meant something. It meant pro-representative government, pro-human rights and pro-Western (Judeo-Christian) values.

    Today, it means a willingness to accept same-sex “marriage,” abortion on demand, an anti-religion ethos – the agenda of the EU’s cultural commissars — and the economic dictates of the Brussels bureaucracy.

    Putin doesn’t want to see the EU — and, possibly, NATO — on his doorstep. Do you blame him? If someone overthrew a democratically elected, pro-American government in Ottawa and replaced it with an interim regime hostile to our interests, that contained neo-Nazi elements and which immediately moved against English-speaking Canadians, it would irritate us too. It would, that is, if there was an American in the White House.

    But don’t I care about a possible Russian annexation of the Crimea and Eastern Ukraine (with its Russian-oriented, Orthodox population), conservatives who are still fighting the Cold War ask me? Not really. I’ll tell you what does concern me: …”

    It’s more similar to what Stalin did in the 1930’s.
