    Putin has no claim to any part of Ukraine. I think Russia need to be taught a lesson.

    Ukraine needs some bad ass weapons and some bad ass mercenaries to kick those bullies asses hard right back to where they came from.

    Putin is determined to make a land bridge to Crimea to further stake his illegal claim to Ukaines real estate and create more phoney applause for his ailing forced long term duma invitation to hijack Russia for power and profits for a select few.

    Its time to pull the plug on the Russian fascist economy.
