Cold War Returns With a Vengeance

Cold War Returns

Vladimir Putin Revives the Cold War by Invading Ukraine

Yes, the free dating sites mobile al Cold War has been resurrected with a singlewanderung tirol vengeance as you can try this out Vladimir Putin invades and annexes the state of look at more info Crimea in click for more info The Ukraine. The rest of the world reacts as though being rubbed inappropriately on the subway–lots of indignant gasps and admonitions, but nobody’s doing anything about it.

Watch as Putin continues his rapid campaign. Don’t be surprised if he takes even more territory while the coast remains clear. So far, he’s been met with no boots on the ground resistance. Does anyone really think a group of U.N. Observers is going to accomplish anything? It’s like having the local Ladies Club to go over to scold a gang that’s moved into their hood. Putin isn’t even buying his own bullshit, but everyone else is. It’s ridiculous the way Putin’s army keeps turning away the U.N. folks at gunpoint.

Vladimir Putin Makes a Grab for Crimea under False Pretext

Vladimir Putin is striking while the iron is hot and nobody’s standing in his way. It’s like a high-speed car chase where the police have broken off pursuit (although nobody’s even really tried to chase out Russia’s unmarked army). It doesn’t exist, right? Vladimir Putin says so, therefore it must be true. He says all of those soldiers are merely ethnic Russian Ukrainian locals supposedly protecting Russian Ukrainians from persecution at the hands of western Ukrainians. The rest of the world is being played while Soviet thugs take over Crimea. That’s what Soviets do. That’s our good old Cold War come back to haunt.

Given the rapid pace at which the Russian Army has deployed uncontested, look for Putin to grab even more. Soon, he’ll be occupying the rest of the Ukraine. His eyes are likely on a few other Post-Soviet states as well. I presume most people see the situation for what
it really is, despite U.S. television covering heavily the so-called diplomatic efforts by President Obama and Secretary of State, John Kerry. One thing is certain: nobody is speaking Soviet to Putin except Putin to himself.

Alternate Answer for Pro-Soviet Crimeans

Perhaps Ukrainian and European leaders could urge pro-Soviet Crimeans to leave the Ukraine and move to Russia. After all, Putin already wants to give them Russian citizenship. Why don’t we agree with Putin and allow him to “save” them by taking them in–in Russia?
