Who wore russian uniforms, and carried russian weapons.

Who do you think ukraine bought its weapons and uniforms form?

And how do we know it was the will of the people? Any vote after an invasion by another country is going to be suspect.

Um no mass protest's in the streats could be a clue. The majority of the population in crimea being russian could be another.

What are the Christians gonna do to me ..... Forgive me, good luck with that.

Hey, Guys. In the Crimea, most residents wanted to be part of Russia, Russian speaking and all that. I also realise that the majority of people in the Eastern Ukraine want to be part of Russia.

Remember that Stalin gave Crimea to the Ukraine without consulting the inhabitants. They were part of the same country in those day's, anyway.

Those borders were set after the Second World War.

I do realise that redrawing borders in modern Europe is a very, very dangerous thing to do. However, ' die Wende' when the old DDR and FRD formed one country changed the outcome of WW2 in Europe. Things changed. Changing borders in Europe is a very dangerous thing to attempt.

Re: the DuNCe platform committee
I'm just old enough to remember the exact same rhetoric being said about Nader. ...

Actually the numbers show that the reason (aside from election fraud in Florida) that Gore lost was that democrats did not turn out in numbers anywhere close to previous elections, and that if they had he would have won. He lost the election (again ignoring the fact that he actually won Florida) by not attracting votes.

And it was the same thing about stiffing the progressives in the party to go center right and choosing Lieberman (who was an independent not a democrat and the DNC had no problems with that then).

Enjoy

Actually, it was Kruschev.
