    It is not "the Ukraine" It is simply Ukraine.
    Biggest damn nation in Europe and you cannot even state its name right.

    And leave it to a total fucking retard to post a link to stupid shit.

    You are as bad as the russian trolls and the poltwerps posting their
    retarded links.

    Said the jackass who took an American name. Good job, Edweirdo.
    Language skill? It IS ONLY "Ukraine", not "The Ukraine".

    And it is also the largest nation in Europe, though since you did
    not even try to look into that fact, I have serious doubts that you
    even have the aptitude to grasp that fact.

    It IS the biggest dammed nation in Europe and you can't even get
    your inane facts straight.

    HOW SO? How can you be so stupid? I don't know, EdWeirdo, why
    don't you tell us just HOW you got SO stupid.

    Wow. Neville Chamberlain cops unlimited criticism for not confronting
    Hitler early on. Now Putler has attacked Chechnya, Georgia, Crimea and
    annexed 2 other regions in Ukraine and everybody hopes he has no more territorial aims....

    Think again. And think again about how non action will embolden China in

    Large land area is not the same as "biggest nation".

    In addition to population,
    Ukraine:0.133T, Spain:1.2T, France:2.6T, Germany:3.8T in GDP

    Ukraine is a small country by any mean.

    You're partially correct. The country is called Ukraine, but term "the ukraine" is still used to refer to its massive agricultural region, the bread basket of Europe- until the brain dead communist regimes ruined it.

    Wow. Neville Chamberlain cops unlimited criticism for not confronting
    Hitler early on. Now Putler has attacked Chechnya, Georgia, Crimea and annexed 2 other regions in Ukraine and everybody hopes he has no more territorial aims....

    Initially Hitler was simply taking back land stolen from Germans after WWI. He didn't want all of Czechoslovakia, he only wanted the western portion of the country historically known as Bohemia. Bohemia was a nation of German-Austrians founded as a
    kingdom during the middle ages and was eventually subsumed by the Habsburg empire. It never belonged to Germany because Germany was a relatively new nation on the scene. However, the inhabitants absolutely abhorred the Slavs and submitting to Slavic rule
    was a hell on Earth for them. They tried to do it the right way and formally petitioned the League of Nations to return them to Austrian rule, which was denied.
    The Germans stole a lot military equipment from the Czechs. Rommel went through France like a hot knife through butter with his 7th panzer division which was all Czech tankettes- no super sophisticated advanced German armor technology was used. Of course
    it helped that the French just waved the German force through and didn't fight at all.

    Same goes for Poland and east Prussia, the same situation with eastern Euros ruling a bunch of ethnic Germans, an intolerable situation. By rights, east Prussia should have been given to the Lithuania because the Germans stole it from Balts through
    bloody genocide in the 11th century, under the guise of converting the people to Christianity which the Balts absolutely refused to accept.

    Ukraine belongs to Russia, they built everything there, mainly Catherine the Great built every major city. Most parts of urban Ukraine are majority ethnic Russian people. I don't know what the ethnic Ukrainians ever did except stay drunk all the time.
    They have a well documented history of being very evil, violent and murderous people. It would be worthwhile to see their record from WWII to get an idea.



    Think again. And think again about how non action will embolden China in
    its territorial quests.

    No, it is not.

    Obviously physical area is a huge factor.

    Are you not the retarded dope that just posted "Ukraine is a small
    country by any mean."

    You could not grasp 'context' if your pathetic life depended on it,
    by any mean.

    Too important to be ignored is the FACT that it is the biggest
    nation in Europe. You seem to have no grasp of what that means.

    75% of Russia's citizenry is in the European continent. On the
    OTHER hand 75% of Russia's land mass is in Asia.

    The UN says "Europe", but geography states otherwise. So I guess
    it becomes a matter of opinion at that point.

    Ukraine is NOT Russia. And NO, it is also NOT in Russia, AND
    finally Russia is not in Europe, though parts of it is.

    After the Breakup of the USSR, we have several nations now that are
    their own sovereign entity. Crimea WAS one of them. Ukraine still
    is, so far. Putin's goal is to convince them that they would fare
    better under Russia's wing. It would be a sad mistake for them to
    believe his bullshit.

    It is not "the Ukraine" It is simply Ukraine.
    Biggest damn nation in Europe and you cannot even state its name
    right.

    And leave it to a total fucking retard to post a link to stupid
    shit.

    You are as bad as the russian trolls and the poltwerps posting
    their retarded links.

    You're partially correct. The country is called Ukraine, but term
    "the ukraine" is still used to refer to its massive agricultural
    region, the bread basket of Europe- until the brain dead
    communist
    regimes ruined it.


    Hmmm... 'breadbasket'... 'largest nation'... sounds like I
    got
    that part right too.

    Is russia really in europe?

    75% of Russia's citizenry is in the European continent. On the
    OTHER hand 75% of Russia's land mass is in Asia.

    The UN says "Europe", but geography states otherwise. So I guess
    it becomes a matter of opinion at that point.

    Ukraine is NOT Russia. And NO, it is also NOT in Russia, AND
    finally Russia is not in Europe, though parts of it is.

    After the Breakup of the USSR, we have several nations now that are
    their own sovereign entity. Crimea WAS one of them. Ukraine still
    is, so far. Putin's goal is to convince them that they would fare
    better under Russia's wing. It would be a sad mistake for them to
    believe his bullshit.

    Putin as already spelled out his issues, he does not want Ukraine
    to become a member of NATO member right on Russia's border.
    Crimea used to be Russian, is home to the black sea fleet and one of
    Russia's only three warm water ports, so it hardly surprising Putin had to
    do something when they started talking about EU and NATO
    membership, and it wasn't immediately denied

    doesn't make it right, but somewhat understandable

    Unless Germany want to freeze in the dark, they are problem not going to risk Putin turning off the gas

    Everything west of the Urals is Europe. The core of Russia started in Europe and is squarely in Europe to this day. You can't go by that dumb UN statistic because the term Russian citizen encompasses a bunch of non-European Asian people. There are at
    least an equal number of Asian people as there are Russians living in their federation.
    Getting back to the Ukraine, Ukraine is not Russia, but Russia was founded by slavs who moved north out of Ukraine into Russia. Ukraine was never anything politically or culturally other than a loose federation of slavic tribes who organized themselves
    to protect trade routes coming from the east. As is typical of those people they were always infighting and were a very weak society. The Mongols wiped them off the map in the 13-14th century and that was the end of them. Some of them broke and ran to
    start a new settlement in what eventually became Russia.
    The people who lived in that part of the world were constantly living in survival mode, in constant danger of being annihilated by one group or another coming out of Asia. It took a strong Russian in the person of Ivan the Terrible to smartly militarize
    their borders and finally provide safety for all the people living there, including people in Ukraine.
    When the Soviets broke up their phony, corrupt union, they cut the Ukraine loose to be on its own because they didn't want the trouble of administering a government there. All that stuff about Ukraine yearning for freedom and independence was total
    bullshit promulgated by the new criminal class looking to rule and rob the place. How these leaders can keep a straight face when talking about Ukraine is kinda amazing. It's no more a real country than North Korea- a completely fake construct iow. The
    American people, the most ignorant people on Earth, are being duped about Ukraine. Russia has every right to go in and crack heads when they misbehave.

    Germany has an alternate source available to them.

    Putin is no more than an intimidating bluff idiot someone should
    shoot. He was KGB and the first idiot who wanted the old system back
    as they tried to march toward being a democracy. He has since become
    the most corrupt and also one of the biggest thieves on the planet.
    Following Trump's devalue/revalue MO, he made himself rich buying
    severely devalued properties and then bolstering the value back up
    the next day. You know, things that would get folks over here thrown
    into prison... Well, at least most people.

    I cannot believe they were so hep on putting ol' Madoff away so
    quickly (the burn must have hurt them bad), but they will not go
    after a coup organizing total criminal nation damaging idiot with any
    fervor. It has to change.

    This is one BIG reason Russia does not want Ukraine joining NATO: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defense_industry_of_Ukraine

    have Russian TOP SECRET classification.

    There are many other enterprises in Ukraine that are critical to Russian security and prosperity that any fool can see a bunch of troublemakers in NATO will ruin if they could get their hands on them.

    Russia has every right to move in and protect their interests.

    That might have been true when the Ukraine was part of the Soviet Union. That fell apart thirty years ago.

    Twaddle.They might have had when the Ukraine was part of the Soviet Union, but that fell apart thirty years ago. Putin might as well claim to be acting in the interests of the Russian Orthodox Church.

    Priceless, brother. On a subway with a board game and moving
    pieces... no way it was going to last.

    Shame you could not get the inflection as well.
    Usenet limitations. But that would be cool to get inflections
    through written word. The YouTube link takes care of that though.
    "The Ukraine is not weak!" Bahahahaha! Putin apparently thinks
    otherwise.

    But we never got "smellivision" either, thank God.
