Sudetenland Comes to the Crimea

Armed men seize Crimea parliament and hoist Russian flag | World news | theguardian.com

Armed men have seized the government buildings in the capital of the Ukraine’s Crimea region and hoisted a Russian flag over a barricade.

The men occupying the parliament building in the regional capital, Simferopol, early on Thursday did not come out to voice any demands. They wore black and orange ribbons, a Russian symbol of the victory in World War II. The men also put up a sign saying “Crimea is Russia.”

They threw a flash grenade in response to a journalist’s questions. Phone calls to region’s legislature rang unanswered, and its website was down.

Ethnic Tatars who support Ukraine’s new leaders and pro-Russia separatists had confronted each other outside the regional parliament on Wednesday.

My hunch is that they will declare regional independence and ask that the Russians, currently embarking on a massive war game involving 150,000 troops right on their doorstep, come in to “protect ethnic Russians and Russian citizens.”

Prediction:  Lots of huffing and puffing from the Euroweenies and John “War Hero” Kerry, but nobody will do anything, and Russia will annex the Crimea to the Fascist USSR – rather as Hitler did likewise to the Sudetenland.  The tactics being employed by Putin, oddly enough, are almost identical to those used by Adolf Hitler.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
