      The reason Putin has sent in troops is the same as in Georgia - to "protect" his "fellow Russians" whether they are citizens of Russia or not. He has already started to offer passports to ethnic Russian Ukrainians in Crimea.

      By the same logic as you condoning this, Mexico should be entitled to station forces in major American cities with large (or majority) "ethnic Mexican" communities in order to protect them. At times of course that might mean taking over airports to prevent oppressing forces using them and closing down TV and radio stations to prevent them being used to stir up hatred of Mexicans.

      "Come to Sochi, visit the gay clubs and play with the bears" - NOT a Russian advertising slogan.
