Seethe all you want - nobody, including their alleged ally, China, recognizes Russian Crimea and other cope annexations.
I don't "seeth". I celebrate when people are free to vote in a referendum. I wish our ruling mod would ask us if we want our borders open to the invading hordes.
and anyway what about Iraq
You are a true genius. If the US can invade and stay in Syria and Iraq, Russia can invade Ukraine and stay there as long as it wants. I like simple...
Memo to morons: Normal people like guys with guns. We call them cops. Russian soldiers in Crimea were cops. Their job was to prevent violence and terrorism, not to inflict violence and terror on the voters.
Do you, morons, know how I know that? I know that because no shots were fired, nobody died, and no Western press has reported that people were threatened to vote one way or the other.
Further, Russia invited "international observers". They didn't come so that later Polish morons could claim the referendum was coerced and illegitimate. Nice trick...
