I'll always just think of you as the Snide Sniper. Every forum has one, you are ours.

Feel free to discuss the topic.

 

In particular you should tell us how you reconcile your comments with the Monroe Doctrine and N.A.T.O. intervention in Libya.

 

If you leave it as it is then it just makes you look ignorant

When you spend your entire contribution making snide comments and studiously avoiding exposing any original thought, you're hardly in a position to dictate what others should post. I think I'll pass, however ignorant you think that makes me.

Preventing neo-nazism and protecting ethnic Russians might justify unilateral action by Russia but I wonder why it didn’t make a diplomatic case first in the UN for example.

Quite a surprise.

A sermon full of holes and a captain without anything to fill them,......is always liable to go on the attack, to distract from a lack of answers #nowtchanges

I’m afraid the literary prize deservedly won this morning is now forfeit. Couldn’t make that one out, buster.

One of the reasons for this little skirmish was the eagerness of Ukraine to join the EU and NATO therefore bringing them right up to the Russian border the one thing Putin does not want , and he's going to have to take action soon as i have said before there is no point in having nukes to just sit in storage . 

Nato was already right up to the Russian border since 1949

It goes way back before Putin.

Gorbachev/Yeltsin were promised this type of thing wouldn't happen.

A conversation between Gorbachev and James Baker. The interesting part is on page 5.

 

Gorbachev never got an agreement in writing and, if I remember correctly, the contents of the conversation were denied.
