People seem to forget about the Crimean War (1853-1856). France, Britain, and the Ottoman Empire got together to force Crimea back into the Ukraine after they rebelled and declared they were joining with Russia.
"Ours is not to reason why
Ours is but to do, and die"
.... Charge of the Light Brigade written by Tennyson about the screw ups of the Crimean War.
Florence Nightingale became famous during that war too.
Do we really want the U.S. to get involved in forcing a province to go back to being part of a country they have been trying to get away from for over 100 years?
And, joke all you want but the shipyards at Sebastopol rival U.S. shipyards. And Russia really does need more beach resorts like Yalta. Remember where Stalin, Churchill, and Roosevelt went to plan Hitler's downfall?
Meh, it is a comedy act but I'm just pissed off at the mainstream journalist ignorance about Crimea and so many more subjects.
