    Looks like the prezzy's warnings went unheeded, Russia has officially invaded the Ukraine.

    What are the implications of this?

    Ukraine official: Russia has launched 'armed invasion' in Crimea | Fox News

    "Russian troops moved into Crimea Friday, U.S. officials told Fox News, prompting Ukraine to accuse Russia of an "armed invasion."

    At the White House, President Obama said the U.S. government is "deeply concerned" by reports of Russian "military movements" and warned any violation of Ukraine's sovereignty would be "deeply destabilizing."​

    John Kerry is expected to write Russia a "very stern letter" unless it's possible that Putin might somehow be offended.

    Not really invaded. Russia moved troops to protect their bases in the Crimea. With all the turmoil in the Ukraine who can blame them.

    Do any of you remember an old comic strip, "The Little King?"
    I think our emperor is a poor caricature of him . . .
