I honestly don't know why the U.S. just cant stay out of it. It seems like the U.S. does everything  ...

The last time I check a Constitution is ONLY valid by the government that created it. The so called new government of Ukraine is actually unconstitutional because is was not elected. It came to power as the result of a coup. A constitution that requires all members of government to be elected or duly appointed by legally elected officials cannot remain in force for a government that came to power in violation of that constitution.

In order for a previously written constitution to be used by a new government it must again be ratified by that new government which has not happened and is not likely to happen since doing so would require free elections almost immediately. Those elections would likely drive those currently in power out of office. That is certainly something the West does NOT want to see happen.

The West is in violation of International law by having supported a coup  in violation of Ukraine's constitution and further by declaring the new government legitimate. No other country or group of countries has the right or power to declare any other countries government legitimate. Only the citizens of the affected country have that explicit right.

The people of Crimea by free election have declared themselves independent of the new illegal western sponsored government of Ukraine and become independent. This is their right. This is the human right of all people that cannot simply be usurped by some power hungry western hypocrites. Now as a free and independent country Crimea has the right to join any union, federation of it's choice or even request to become part of another country. You can bet that had Crimea voted to become a Eurozone country or a satellite State of say Germany, the west would be screaming how perfectly legal that would be.

We must all remember that Ukraine at this point does NOT have a legitimate and freely elected government. As such the West should be counting their lucky stars that Russia does not simply march on Kiev, remove that illegal government by force and reinstate the one that was freely elected by the people.

Anyone notice how the west has not even hinted that this current illegal government should immediately or ASAP hold FREE elections? This is something the West always demands when a coup happens. Oh wait. That's right! Those demands ONLY happen when the coup is NOT Western backed and/or the government is not Pro Western.

The West being blinded by its need to expand it's hegemony cannot see that its failure to demand restoration of the legitimately elected government or to demand immediate FREE elections is actually playing right into Putin's hand. So long as an illegal and illegitimate government remains in power then Russia has the right and obligation to do whatever is necessary to protect ethnic Russians in Ukraine. It also means that other regions with a majority of people that do not want to be ruled by an illegal and illegitimate government have the right by FREE election to declare themselves independent.

The bottom line for me is that this crisis was initiated by the West and has backfired spectacularly on them and will likely continue to do so. This has also shown the rest of the world just how weak the West really is. This will only encourage and embolden other Countries to challenge the West and Washington specifically. It has shown that as long as you are strong or have a powerful ally then Washington and the West in general are nothing more than Paper Tigers.

It is never right for any country to interfere with the sovereignty of another, but try telling that ...



You are always so diplomatic to the point, general Zhu.

Nobody of Russian people don't trust in american and europe's sanctions, because Russia is the main supplier of resource in Europe.
Crimean people made yourself choice - 95% want to live and work in Russia, if Russia cheat of Crimean and refuse of Crimean, USA will see blood's rever in Crimea.

They weren't really given much in the way of choice(s), were they?


the people shot at in Kiev, the elected officials and president were not given a choice of ballot, they got bullets... so the Russians definitely did give everyone a choice of peaceful voting without shooting. The majority opinion prevailed as in a democracy. Not what the West supported - just lawless violent lumpen who do the bidding of masters outside.. ignoring the rights of the majority in Ukraine who elected Yanukovich... and that too after signing a agreement!! surely the Russian way is the preferable and more ethical way in this issue.
