  •  US has never fully lived up to its commitments (2+ / 0-)

    under the Nuclear non-Proliferation Treaty. Neither has Russia, for that matter. We illegally invaded Iraq and committed torture. We also provide cover for Israel, which has long been in violation of International Law. Even if one chooses to disregard the many treaties we've broken with Native Americans, the U.S. isn't in much of a position to go pointing fingers. Being a superpower, we can pretend the hypocrisy doesn't exist and get away with bullying others.

    While I do oppose the Russian grab, starting WWIII over the Crimea would be colossally stupid. But it should not be neglected that sanctions on Russia are intended to attach a price to its misconduct.
