  •  Ummm, yes. (0+ / 0-)

    Of my above cited examples, the US involvement in the Panamanian "revolution" is, of course, the best one.

    In both cases (Panama and Crimea), the aggressor nation is essentially fomenting trouble among a minority population in a neighbor nation in order to obtain port facilities which it feels it needs to possess.

    And the Spanish American War parallel is analogous down to the last official word from the aggressor nations. "We have the right to defend our interests....." Seriously, Havana 1898 and Sevastopol 2014, down to the same exact words.

    I don't know if that scares or concerns you, but it sure as F scares me!!
