they're bullies. They pick on the weak because they can but have little economic capacity to sustain a major war.

I wonder how the rest of the world would react to full blown war. There was enough backlash over Crimea which at least was technically legal. A full blown invasion though would require some heavy political wrangling.

I think "technically legal is going a bit far. If crimes was technically legal, Germany's invasion of Poland was also "technically legal".

But I think you're right, Russia was already hurt by some sanctions from the Ukraine/Crimea incidents. A full blown war would have some serious backlash.

How on earth was Crimea technically legal.

Because there was a "referendum" that "real" "Crimeans" "voted" in.

It was completely and totally illegal. Acquisition of territory through conquest has been considered illegal since WW2 by practically every country in the world.

Self-determination is recognised but only in very specific situations, and never ever while occupied by another state.

The point is the pretext was there. If confronted Putin can simply claim he was enforcing the Crimeans right to privacy. Anyone who talks to loud about it gets polonium in their tea.

Yeah, but it is extremely rare in international law that states can legally invade a country with the purpose of protecting the citizens of that particular state. The whole thing has been a complete farce. I think I could be a lot more Russia-friendly if it wasn't for the fact that they don't have any respect for borders.

It is a strange hypocrisy or naivety in the right wing camp that we speak against muh globalist imperialist and muh government-controlled media, but keep throwing ourselves in the arms of Putin.

The US has already interfered more in a Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya just in recent history. It's completely different but if it Putin wanted to argue that he'd have a case. To justify any sanctions or military action we'd need something more overt.

I doubt the Baltics will do anything without the US sanctioning it.
Honestly if Russia attacks they'll steamroll Ukraine. They'd also have to come up with some retarded pretext, but that hasn't stopped them before.

Historically, August is also the perfect movement to conduct stuff like this. Government offices are somewhat empty in August because of vacations. The Berlin wall was build in August 1961. Czechoslovakia was invaded in August 1968. Moscow coup was in August 1991. And most importantly, Georgia was invaded in Augsut 2008.

And speaking of 2008, we were having a presidential election, and the world's focus was on the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. The exact same circumstances as now.
I'll bet my hat this August is one for the history books.

That in itself is a racist view though. If a person doesn't think their own race can be racist, that's racism.

I think people of any race can be racist toward people of any other race.

While that's true, that's not what I'm saying.

I'm saying that if someone makes the claim that whites systematically try to suppress minorities because they're racist, why are Asians performing so well so often? Jew's do as well but people generally consider them white.

I think Indians demographically are the highest paid immigrant group in America. Native Americans are down for sure, but I'm not sure whether to include them considering the sovereignty status.
