@Snarklefuss First, the US invaded Iraq based on lies and a desire for oil and geostrategic power - not "defense" of any sort. Secondly, watch this to see why Russia in Ukraine is VERY different: youtu.be/JrMiSQAGOS4

@tekstone @Snarklefuss Listen up, if Putin didn't like the idea of Ukraine becoming part of NATO too f'king bad. He fears Russians wanting a real Democratic government. Russia has a long history of abusing Ukraine, Stalin stole their grain and starved them to death. ­čľĽPutin and ­čľĽRussia.
