If America retrenches the world will fall into it's old bad habits; ethnocentrism, romantic nationalism and ultimately chaos. What's scary is that Americans are disgusted with shameless cowards like Mr. Clarke and quite willing to see him rolled out in front of a future firing squad of neo-fascists, and not get involved in regional conflicts that do not benefit our families on this side of the Atlantic.

Crimea should decide for itself, like the Maldives and they are thousands of miles from UK.
PUTIN is the better man, the better leader than any western polititians.

People say " I don't know that area, I only know my home country.." thus people have lost the ability to think for themselves and know right from wrong. No on in The West cares what happened to Libya but the poor Libyan people. Sad. So, what goes around comes around eventually as heads are in the sand and Imperialism is afoot.

Let us not forget Egypt as well. There may not have been a military intervention but the country is in a chaotic state since the orchestrated outcast of Hosni Mubarack. Where does this leave the egyptian people today.?
