Voicing our concern when bullies encourage violence or remain intent on expansionism is appropriate, but let’s make sure we limit our involvement to sanctimonious pronouncements. If segments of the Ukrainian population was to secede, that’s a problem the Ukraine must deal with, not us. What is happening in the Ukraine, Syria, Iraq, Libya, and other parts of the world is for the citizens of those countries to resolve. We simply cannot, and should not, try to solve the problems of other people, regardless of whether they are caused by political, economic, or religious matters. There are still too many things that remain to be done right here in the USA, to get involved in more crusades…or worse.
