Are the Russians really out line in sending troops to the Ukraine, and specifically the Crimea? Ukraine is a nation in absolute turmoil, and a firm hand is needed to bring some order there. It’s certainly not going to be the United States of America – diminished as we are now – that’s going to do that. Nor should it really be our cross to bear: Ukraine is in Russia’s sphere of influence, and Vladimir Putin has emerged as the world’s most powerful and influential leader. Many Ukrainians – especially those in the Crimea – are pleading for Putin to intervene, a fact even the internationalist media is not attempting to hide. The anti-Putin hysteria that infests even the conservative right-wing in America is being desperately peddled by the corrupt, globalist Western governments as a means to destroy the man. Every single time he has been challenged, however, Vladimir Putin has always emerged stronger. With or without Mr. Putin, Russia is a rough place to live, and it’s an authoritarian (though not repressive) society, to be sure. But, let’s tone down the rhetoric, please: This is not 1939, and it’s not Nazi Germany invading Poland out of blood lust. We’re talking about a nation – Ukraine – on the verge of civil war, and it’s larger and more powerful neighbor wanting to bring about stability and protect the large Russian ethnic majority in the Crimea. If, for instance, a civil war were to break out in Mexico, I would hope and pray the American government would do everything in its power to protect expatriate Americans and protect our border in order to prevent any overflow of hostilities into the Southwestern states. The difference between America and Russia today is that we can have no confidence our rotten government would do the right thing to protect its people and land, while Mr. Putin is taking swift action to protect his.
