Why do we get involved in this stuff? Butt ourselves in other countries business? Why?
"unprovoked attack" and "Russia's annexation of Crimea" are phrases from the MSM handbook.
What a strong show of force...…………..Ha-ha…….
Just goes to show how FAST this could ESCALATE should Russia and Ukraine continue on this path toward war. USA is supplying Ukraine with weapons, and sanctioning Russia due to Crimea. Plus operating close to Russian forces in Syria. More DANGEROUS than even Cold War maybe.
As reported by the bbc, the treaty between Ukraine and Russia regarding transit of the Kerch strait gives Russia complete authority to stop and search any and all Ukrainian sea traffic. So - what happened here? Did the ukranian vessels refuse to abide by that agreement, or did the Russians simply hinder and seize them without warning. I have yet to see a clear answer on that, and that is central.
The US flew a plane overhead?That will teach Russia a lesson right?Much stronger that a tweet!
Independent of Trump's input? We hope.
Make sure there are fighter escorts.
A plane flies over Ukraine and that somehow is a response to Russia, which is a different country.
Hopefully the flight was able to spot some of Hillary's 33,000 emails...
