Ukraine and Russia: An Idyllic State For An Old Grandstanding US Politician

A soldier rests atop a Russian armored personnel carriers with a road sign reading "Sevastopol - 32 kilometers"

The anticipated crisis in the Ukraine is unraveling just as expected.  Vladimir Putin is a "Cold War(ist)" just as John McCain and Lindsey Graham. We should expect nothing less than invasion (Strategic insertion) from Putin. His actions are no different than we could have expected from McCain had the nation fell into an abyss and elected McCain and Sarah Plain to the White House. For that matter, Mitt Romney would be same.

The GOP is ever-seeking opportunity for military intervention. When they cannot find such, they procreate intervention (WMD). We should be recall McCain "....I voted with Bush  95% of the time." [ Linked A, Linked B ] He once said the US could be in Iraq for 100 years, he was photographed with an Al Qaeda operative while encouraging Obama to Bomb in Syria, and the man has never found a potential war he did not love. Factually, the links above relegate the warmongering McCain to that of a "non-issue" mouthy old man.

It is also critical to know that McCain's saber-rattling throughout the morning is pure "self-aggrandizing" lobbying for seats on tomorrow's Sunday Morning New Shows.


One last thought. Imagine McCain/Palin serving even one term in the White House. Of course, Palin would have quit about one third the way through that horrific thought (McCain/)Palin in the White House).

There is so much to report on developments in the Ukraine. I have posted a few news 'decks' via RePost.US.
