America Should stay the hell out of the Ukraine situation
I think what Russia is doing is wrong. I think it amounts to nothing more than bullying because they don't like those who have taken power. But I also think it is a family dispute that America should stay out of. International law be damned, i don;t believe America should involve itself in this dispute. The best analogy I can think of, is this: What id Texas or California decided to secede from the United States? Their economies are big enough, and what if Russia told either of those two states they would support them? The United States would be miffed about a foreign power intervening in what would, for all intents and purposes, be a family dispute. We need to consider that Russia has bitten off more than they can chew, and let them try to digest it. We are not the world's policeman, as much as we would like to be. Let Russia stew in its' aggression. They have to live with it. We should not. The Ukraine is not worth World War three. You can disagree all you want, but look at the situation long term. We did such a great job with afghanistan and Iraq, who are we to tell Russia how to handle Ukraine?
