But I just wanted to let everyone know how much I HATE, HATE, HATE, Russia and Putin. He is definitely on my shit list. Other people have more thoughtful analysis but Russia can go fuck itself.
Update: Stupid co-worker remark of the day: "I was watching the war on tv and it's like Iraq, they are like bombing things. It's terrible."
Not it's mot like Iraq, it's worse, because these are Russians, not ruled bound, hand behind their backs, fire three warning shots American soldiers. These are ruthless, merciless, trained to kill as many as you can Russian soldiers. There is a difference.
