    That's pretty much how most world powers run. US included.

    Lol, there's only one thing I despise more than Zionist settlers, and it's communists/socialists/marxists.

    hi Dr.strangelove,

    ahhh, my mistake. i wasn't reading closely - i didn't see the Versailles bit.

    Russia, though, has been a global power for a long time, and the fall of the Soviet Union didn't change that.

    Russia is a regional power. They cannot project force.

    The Russia love on this forum is disturbing. You realize most Russians do not like you right? They don't think like you, and they have your worst in mind... So just think about that before praising acts of defiance against America.

    Must be cayse Russia killed a lot of Muslims in Chechnya and Afghanistan and they support Assad . Plus now they have taken over Crimea which has a Muslim minority population.

    How exactly do you know that most Russians hate Americans? Opposing American foreign policy is not the same as hating everyday Americans.

    From his post history: He is a Chechen sympathizer so the 'hate' I guess can be related to that. I'm sure you could fiddle something about his views on religion in there since Russia is also outrageously Christian.

    The "marxist" cover up is great though, would have fooled lesser men than <-----

    Well, if we are talking militarily, Russia could probably invade a backwards hole like Iraq with hundreds of thousands as well.

    Then again, nobody can project power like the US, especially in the effective method in which they do it.

    I hear the Crimea argument being made a lot and what Stalin did to the Tatar was deplorable but people should really look up how those Tatars got there and the endless scores of people that were butchered when the invasions took place.

    Facepalm*

    What I assume Jukai meant by his question, is why am I backing the US in this race?

    My response was to that implied question, making everything you've just said utterly worthless.

    I have read people alluded to the Tartars being the natives while the Russian Slavs are colonits. This isn't accurate because Tartars are a Turkic group who killed, cleansed and assimilated the natives , the Slavs.

    Turkic languages originated in Western Mongolia and apread to Crimea with Turko-Mongol invaders. Present day Tartars there no doubt have considerable Slavic ancestry but to claim they are native while the Slavs of the area who retained Slavic culture aren't is like saying full blooded Amerindians are less native to Mexico than the Mestizos.

    Slavs are an Indo-European linguistic group and the IE homeland is generally accepted to be in that area (South West Russia, Ukraine, north of Black Sea ). So how can Slavs be less native to Crimea than Turkics .

    Jukai: "Why you directin' your hate on Russia"
    Me: explained why you be directin' your hate on Russia

    I wasn't making fun of you, just what I've observed.

    How do you reconcile your suggested reasoning (i.e. religion) for my hate on Russia and my support for the US in this particular case?

    I didn't say that it was exclusive. Obviously and as you say, you have other reasons for being anti-Russia in this case. Though, you have been anti-Russia on many other things prior to this revolution; things including religion and Chechnya.
