Obama: Crimea’s Secession Referendum a Violation of International Law
DC's hypocrisy is on full display over the Crimean secession vote:
President Obama continues to express outrage at the idea of the Crimea seceding from the Ukraine, and today insisted that an impending referendum on whether Crimeans want to secede itself “violates international law.”Remember how DC supported independence for the Muslim Kosavars in 2008, despite Serbia's forceful objections? But that was okay because the Kosavars were pro-DC. Ukraine is also part of the DC harem, so now secession suddenly violates something Obama calls "international law." Right. Once again, DC's Temporary Dictator thinks he's King of the World and has the right to stick his nose anywhere he wants. Thing is, more and more Americans reject that view. Naturally, the parasites who live off big government don't like this trend. Michael Gerson, one of the most repulsive of the Empire's stable of cheerleaders, has this to say about Americans' plummeting support for US intervention:
In the 20th century, the United States was both unique and irreplaceable because it exercised great power without the blood-and-soil nationalism of Russia, Germany or Japan. It stood for universal, liberal, democratic ideals. We should not expect those humane ideals to thrive in the vacuum left by a retreating America.But DC's actions show it's motivated by its own self-interest rather than the airy "universal ideals" it uses to justify its wars. And people are starting to notice. Tick-tock...
