Are you suggesting that in1982 that the British invaded the Falklands ignoring the existing sovere ...

I am not claiming the right or wrong with regard to the Falklands issue - merely pointing out the parallel. The fact that the Falklands were seized by use of force and sovereignty was maintained by use of force is irrelevant. The point is that the residents were given a vote on the matter and that result has decided the debate over sovereignty - same as in Crimea but without the level of protests about illegality bla, bla, bla

frankly, i think Obama is now earning the Nobel prize given to him years in advance. He is not setting out on another military misadventure, while most others in his place would have done so. I am starting to think that the Nobel peace prize committee must have had some idea of the way future events might unfold and they surely rewarded him beforehand, else there would be a hue and cry, if he were awarded it AFTER events like Syria and Crimea... Their own institution would have been under attack! Good on Obama. He is returning a favour to Putin for saving his face/rear end in Syria.. Obama now has to sound all full of outrage and fury for the US public... but as Ted180 often says, it is the private deals done between leaders that determines such changes. Good on Obama and Putin! The world is a better and safer place - with the elimination of a monopoly on military power!
