Russia Moving Nukes Into Crimea, and America’s Asinine Response — Novorossia News Agency

Day after day, the scene in Ukraine seems to be looking more and more unstable. The brinksmanship of the Cold War appears to be making a comeback in Europe, as Russia asserts its claims over Ukraine. Recently, Putin has ordered the Russian military to begin moving tactical nuclear weapons into Crimea, as well as several Tu-22 nuclear armed bombers.

The event has U.S. lawmakers in an uproar, and NATO officials shaking in their boots (or at least that’s how I imagine them). They’re throwing around terms like “treaty violation” and “menacing threats to Europe”. Meanwhile, those same U.S. officials seem to be thinking in very obsolete terms.

“Locating nuclear weapons on the sovereign territory of another state without its permission is a devious and cynical action,” states the letter signed by House Armed Services Committee Chairman Howard P. “Buck” McKeon (R., Calif.) and two subcommittee chairmen.

“It further positions Russian nuclear weapons closer to the heart of NATO, and it allows Russia to gain a military benefit from its seizure of Crimea, allowing Russia to profit from its action.”

They can’t accept that the Crimea is no longer the sovereign territory of Ukraine. Whether the actions of the Russian government are right or wrong, is irrelevant. They’ve taken Crimea, a region that has belonged to Russia for longer than the U.S. has even existed, and the place is just lousy with ethnic Russians (who’d have thought?).
