Cold War 2

SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine, Ukraine (AP) - Masked gunmen stormed the parliament of Ukraine's strategic Crimea region as Russian fighter jets screamed above the border, while Ukraine's newly formed government pledged to prevent a national breakup with the strong backing of the West - the stirrings of a potentially dangerous confrontation reminiscent of Cold War brinksmanship.
 Moscow, meanwhile, has launched a major military exercise involving 150,000 troops and put fighter jets on patrol along the border. Barack Obama’s national security adviser said it would be a “grave mistake” for Vladimir Putin to send soldiers into Ukraine to restore a friendly government after the upheaval. The White House sent a stern message Sunday to Russian President Vladimir Putin to butt out of the Ukrainian crisis, warning a military intervention on his part “would be a grave mistake.”

 And then you have rational people like myself saying "Not again". Why does the US always feel the need to get involved in all Geo-politics even if the region is for strategic counter measures. We have had too much war and too much bad news in the country and nobody wants to hear Cold War rhetoric from politicians who've never even been in fight. This Slavic territory has been contested for a long time and if these people want to shape their own destinies I say so be it. No more American deaths in the name of national security or policing the world.

In The Value of a Whale, writer Adrienne Buller argues forcefully against market-based “solutions” to the climate crisis. There’s a fight brewing over how Hollywood stars can shield their identities.
