So there’s this country, and the government of this country sucks the big one. There is a certain part of this country, into which a bunch of foreigners moved, and began to agitate to separate that region from the government. Eventually, it lead to full-on, open revolt, and shots were fired.
The region held a referendum to vote on what it should do, and it voted to be free and independent. They fought against their government, and won their freedom, and then shortly thereafter, seeing their poor position as an independent state, voted to join up with a strong neighbor and become part of that country, in their own self interest.
Do you think I’m talking about the Ukraine?
No, I’m talking about Texas. What the hell did you think I was talking about?
Again, this whole Russian “invasion” of Crimea is being overblown. I could be wrong. If I am, I’ll apologize publicly to every person who was harmed by my opinion, but I don’t think I’m wrong.
I think this is a case of things seeming harmless when we do them, but looking much different when someone else does the same thing. Yeah, we don’t trust Russia. I don’t necessarily think we have any duty TO trust them, and I certainly don’t think such a policy would be wise at all. But I don’t think that this is what we think it is. I think it is exactly what Russia has said it is – a mission to protect Russian interests.
Or do you think we should give Texas back to Mexico?
