Re: The Russian Invasion of The Ukraine --- Is War on the Horizon?

This "invasion" title is a nonsense except to those brained easily.
Ukraine was in a state before the recent events and is tottering on the edge of financial collapse and has a hard and drastic financial policy via austerity. Pensioners not paid for months, soldiers likewise and corruption the rule of the day. It is also ruled by it's own oligarch as President. Kiev had a coup against a properly elected government even if the leader wasn't that great and when they set up their new system they did no involve the east nor consult and wonder why the 2 provinces were mad. Kiev shot itself in the foot with that thinking as a lot of the heavy industry is in those two areas At least pensioners in Crimea after the place voted to RETURN home get a bigger pension and regularly now. Mind you I would not be surprised if the US taxpayer needed up keeping Ukraine afloat and like other places be viewed as the latest expansion for corporates and such.
