What's your threshold for significance?

Let me guess: you draw the line at 4%, right?
According to the Institute of Modern Russia in 2011, the Russian American population is estimated to be 3.13 million.[5]

3.3 million Russian americans in the US. About 1 million of them born in Soviet Russia. So, hell, lets go take Russia back for them. MAGA!! and MRGA!!

Yes, and the point was well made, not sure where you're getting at... sounds like I'm talking to a 13 yo, is that the case? If it is let me know sooner than later... cheers

Oh, it was well made? Maybe you should do some more research about the atomic bombings of Japan.

Hint: it was more than just to end the war quickly and it had nothing to do with payback

What has that got to do with the discussion? Why are you deflecting so hard?

Amaized that you still don't have the level of understanding or the feel for decency to distinguish between right and wrong.
And not realizing that one can work on that....

It shows that organisations like NATO are still needed because a country like russia still has not reached the level of 1st world countries, rather wanting to solve their conflicts with militairy actions instead of diplomatic actions like civilized countries do amongst eachother.

But you don't understand the difference between right and wrong, or at least how the vast majority of the world sees it.
Only a few countries like venezuela, bolivia, cuba, syria, sudan, north korea and zimbabwe approved of the militairy intervention by Russia. Thats a questionable bunch to say the least....
The rest didnt.

I do understand the difference between right and wrong.

And I do understand your opinion.

Do YOU understand mine?

If not, get back to working on that, as I suggested, as you're the only one baffled here, and you're baffled by your own understanding limitation.

yes, you're of the opinion that because the majority of the people living there are of russian descent, it should belong to Russia. And apparantly every means necessary is justified in your eyes, even if it means taken by force.

Now, I don't care if Crimea belongs to Russia or Ukraine, and so doesn't the world.
However, russian militairy annexation is pure and simple theft. The transition from ukraine to russia should be a diplomatic and democratic path with the necessary financial deals regarding the land and infrastructure if such an event should take place. Thats how civilized countries do this...
The whole world gets this. And you don't....

And I'm not the only one baffled here. And that shows that it's not me who has a limitation regarding understanding.
