NATO logic: Kosovo can leave Serbia, Crimea can't leave Ukraine.

TestTube: Regardless of what you say here, one thing remains hard core evidence and fact and that is the reality that, Kosovo was taken from Serbia by force while Crimea joined Russia though an open and public referendum or vote and that is without a gunshot. Like it or not, these are the facts on the ground.

"Putin is the biggest enemy of human kind!"
"Saddam has WMD's!"
"Khadaffi is a dictator!"
"Assad is killing his own civilians!"

Lol you people really can't breathe for one moment without an enemy can you?? What happened after Saddam? What is happening in Iraq, Syria and Libya right now? You really can't see that those leaders are the ones keeping devided people together in a country? Without them you will see a rise of power by terrorist organizations who kill and enslave anyone in their way, with ambitions (and maybe capabilities) to fight the western world. Without them Europe, US and world-civilians are in greater danger.

Perhaps the ignorant West needs to understand something about the history of Crimea. This is a predominantly Russian speaking territory that had been part of Russia until 1954, when Krushchev decided to give it to the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, when that republic was part of the USSR. In other words, there was never any intention that Ukraine would break away from the USSR, and thus the transfer of Crimea was an internal event within a sovereign nation. The status of this territory should have been negotiated with the fall of the Soviet Union, since it remained predominantly ethnically Russian, but the issue was sidelined due to more important events taking place. Russia organised a referendum of the people of Crimea to decide this issue, and the overwhelming vote was for the territory to be returned to Russia. Western politicians hypocritically refused to recognise the legitimacy of this referendum, despite deciding that Kosovo should be wrenched away from Serbia, and that the historical ambiguity of the status of the Falklands Islands should be ignored in favour of a referendum there. Russia has done nothing wrong, when we look at the historical context as well as the precedents set by other major nations in similar situations.

I have an uncomfortable question for you
Crimea is Ukraine?

~(I hope somebody gets it)~

I don't like how alot of media either portray Putin as the greatest hero ever or the most evil man that has ever lived.

Just try to think what reason Putin had to annex Crimea. He needed to become more popular in order for him to cling onto power. Russia is still a democracy (although you can just barely call it that) and he can get replaced just like that by some random oligarch. So he tried to play the nationalistic sentiment of the Russians. By defending the Russian majority in Crimea he added a whole group of potential pro-Putin voters and boosted his numbers in Russia itself.
He isn't going to try and take more land from Ukraine, because you can't get the Russians more nationalistic than this.

This doesn't mean though that Crimea was taken over involuntary. A really big majority of the people there are Russian. And the Russians ADORE Putin, whether this is a good thing or not is for you to decide. But I really think that the Crimeans wanted to secede from Ukraine.

Poor Russia, you have to see it from their point of view. They need more land, they only have the most land out of any country on Earth.

"Putin may have his eye on the rest of Ukraine"
If he did, he would've taken it along with Crimea, probably within a month at most.
