History repeats itself 2

Well, fuck. It looks like Russia is going to invade Ukraine. Russian troops are already in Crimea. It’s 1968 all over again.

    Yep, and there is nothing anybody can do about it.

    The west’s case would be stronger if Crimea had not been historically and factually part of Russia up till the Supreme Soviet’s misguided grand gesture of “giving” it to the Ukranian SSR in 1954. Let’s hope the Russian troops stop at the border of the “autonomous republic” of Crimea and don’t go into Ukraine proper. I agree I don’t think there’s anything much we can do about this, and we can only hope to contain the damage and risk to the rest of Europe. And then we’ve got an economic basket case to take care of, too.
