Ukraine in Turmoil

(image) On Saturday Prime Minister Vladimir Putin received authorization from the Russian parliament to invade Ukraine. The following day, Russia sent 6,000 air and ground troops into the Crimean region of Ukraine, taking "operational control" of the peninsula. The United States' reaction to the invasion has been one of outrage, but no substantial action. In an interview on Face the Nation Secretary of State John Kerry said that, "you just don't, in the 21st century, behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped up pretext." Many wonder if this new tension means a further continuation of a new Cold War.

Vote and Be Heard

Is it time for real Cold War-style intervention by the United States in Ukraine?
 No, but Russia is still our Geopolitical enemy. Don't increase tension, but be wary of Russian expansion.
 Yes, but let's realize that Russia is not the Soviet Union anymore. They have nationalist interests as well.
 No, it's not our business what Russia does anymore. Let Europe sort out its own problems.
 Yes, stop talking about red-lines and economic sanctions. It's time to flex America's military muscle.
