Moscow would have no truck with the people who took power in Kiev. They were “fascists, anti-Semites, nationalists and radicals who seized power in a coup d’etat backed by western patrons, and do not legitimately represent the people of Ukraine.”

Stop being so overly-competent, Judo Man. If yer a little less perfict, maybe you won't have to work until midnight.
What will happen when you retire? Educate others, pleeze, so you don't have to work until yer Babaji's age.

Dear Russia,
Please love our imperfict America. Sorry US is the most exceptional Nation in the world. Get over it.
It's wonderful you "spiritually-su perior" Rushkies know us wild'n'wooly westerners do the clean-up for unexceptionally advanced You, in contrast with US honestly superior (and arrogantly-so) diss-orderly losers.
So please pardon our American Pride, but US knows we're exceptional. Please visit. Bring money. US is broke.

Hahahaha USA, LOSERS! Democracy in the USA is cruel, ironic shadow of real democracy in Russia. For the US-media infused dumbies on here, the referendum in Crimea was legitimately voted upon by a landslide, democratically, 97%, by 87% of the voters. USA is done, your president is a joke, Russia has won again, Putin is a champ. He should actually do the USA a favour and snap Obam-dumb-asses neck and help you all out.
From your friendly, and anti-american, proud Canadian neighbor

Sooooo many comments ! Congratulations to Putin, he has a clever head on his shoulders !

Do you wish to hear one and a half Russian joke?

This is the old one:
Q1: When was the first Russian election held?
A1: The time that God set Eve in front of Adam and said: "Go ahead, choose your wife".

And this is the new one:
Q2: Comrade Stalin! You sent thousands of wagons of wheat to comrade Hitler (and to his fat generals), to the mortal enemy of the glorious Motherland, the last one even on June 21st 1941. How come, that you did not provide any food to the Ukrainians, your brothers, in the years 1932-1933?

Crimea voted to become part of Russia. It appears the Russians and Putin know more about practicing democracy than Obama… though that's a very low bar to clear.

I wonder if the dispute was between the US and Mexico or the US and Canada if the US would welcome Russian intervention? Something tells me, "not".

This is how Russia will loose the game, the USA has been causing chaos in all oil rich nations and is busy robbing them in daylight. The sunctions will target Russian oil companies and put down the Mighty Russia's ecnomy. The wars hev benefited the West in reducing their dependance on Russian oil and when it is time, they say f*** GAZPROM!


Kenneth Allen 21.03.2014 08:29

If the USA insists on imposing more sanctions on Russia then I think Russia should take back Alaska, don't know what they would do with that ethnic pit bull terrier, Sarah Palin though
