The Donald makes a good point here.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said that Crimea is
“Europe’s problem, much more so than ours” in an interview with CNN
broadcast on Friday. ..."And when Europe comes to us and says ‘we want your help, we want your
help.’ But, they’re not doing that. They’re dealing with Russia, they’re
taking in the gas, they’re taking in the oil. They’re not doing that.
We’re making a big deal out of it, but why isn’t Germany leading this
one? You know, Germany is a very rich, very powerful nation. Why aren’t
they dealing on it[?]"...
Yes. No one has shown that the Crimea/Ukraine matter contains a compelling US interest. Only the Bush family and the Perpetual-War Crowd (see McCain, John and other neo-cons) want US guns, ammo, and troops in every corner of the world.
Trump might prefer to keep our guns, ammo, and troops at the border--which would be a very good place to start.

"No one has shown that the Crimea/Ukraine matter contains a compelling US interest."
There is a compelling US interest, I think, in the form of honoring our security agreements. Of course, at this point one might argue that US credibility is completely shot for the remainder of the Obama administration. Still, ordinarily it is a vital interest to keep one's word in order to maintain the credibility of one's word.
Seems that Cardinal Dolan does not like the Donald too much.......
As far as I'm concerned, If the Good Cardinal doesn't like him it makes Donald more appealing to me.
Well, if it's a "treaty" we should honor, then why did the ObozoGang create and finance the revolution in Ukraine? IOW, exactly how are we bound to an illicit government?
