Nobody. That went so well with ISIS and Al-Qaeda and all the other guys.

Neither. However, the US is arming both

Ukraine, so they can take back their land and prevent a new Russian regime. The threat of a new USSR is increasing, and it's time to put Russia down now

Ukraine. Those rebels are fighting against a government that overthrew the legitimate one in a coup.

No, they had a referendum and the people, ethnic Russians who speak Russian, voted to return to Russia which was their traditional country.

That's not what happened. I feel as though you are purposely being misleading, perhaps unknowingly because of your personal ties to Russia.

Russia took over Crimea. And THEN they had a referendum. Not the other way around. Seems a little bit suspicious, don't you think?

Sure.....I know nothing about it. 🙄. The history of the disputes goes back to the breakup of the Soviet Union.

By the way, many units in the Ukrainian army fly neo nazi symbols. That alone should give people pause.

I'm not saying Russia was right. I'm saying it is a lot more complicated than Americans seem to understand.

I never said you knew nothing about it. All I said was that you were being misleading.

And I didn't know that some units in the Ukrainian army fly neo-Nazi symbols. But who is acting more Nazi-like? The country that unilaterally decides to annex part of a sovereign country, or the Ukraine?

Ok, I was a bit defensive there. Sorry.

The Ukrainians are acting like Nazis in the Crimea. Ukrainians.

Russian, I'm actually agreeing with you. I'm saying that the US should back rebels in Ukraine who want to restore the previous government.

Yeah let's give weapons to the rebels of a country whose government we don't like. I mean that's never backfired for us ever!

Neither. Can we please stop arming rebel groups that we have no control over once/if they get into power?

Why does it have to be one or the other?

Once upon a time we armed and trained Cuban rebels and Afghan rebels. Neither of those situations worked out.
When we try to help, we literally create our own enemies.

Yup. Training the Afghan rebels gave us osama bin laden.
