10 things more effective than Obama's Sanctions
So the Crimean people decided via a vote to join Russia. I guess that makes sense due to their historical ties. But I figure such a thing does not really concern me. I believe in self-determination. Self-determination is a concept in which people have the right to determine their own government. Predictably, this offends the United States government. With no sense of irony, the US position is that Crimea belongs to the Ukraine and has no legal right to break free. I am sure England would have agreed with that point in 1776.
Anyway, Obama huffed and puffed and announce a series of sanctions to punish Russia. This resulted in much laughter from the Russians.
