    Why is the US involved in this mess in the first place? Even if the other side wasn't one of the two most heavily armed countries in the world, I don't see where it affects us much one way or the other who runs the Ukraine. It certainly doesn't affect us as much as the lack of national health care, decent unemployment benefits, a thriving manufacturing base, or any of the other things that we cannot afford because we're gadding about the world trying to help out everybody.

    For an example of how you can be a powerful country (both militarily and economically) without getting involved, check out the Chinese response to the Ukraine.
