What will happen to the Ukrainian Babes?

I am not totally on their radar but I have gotten emails about "Hot Russian Girls" and I think many of them are from the Ukraine.  I wonder what will happen now?  If you look at it on the map Crimea is a peninsula, like a big blob off the bottom of the Ukraine.  Until 1954 it was a part of Russia so all of the older people consider themselves Russian while the younger (the hot babes!) think of themselves as Ukrainians.  The whole situation is not unlike the Arab Spring.  Young people wanting flat screen televisions and access to the internet and an occasional latte.  Who can blame them?  The minimum wage is less than $25 dollars a day!
It is complicated because Russia is no backwater country.  It has become fairly wealthy off  natural gas and oil exports to Europe and Europe has become dependent.  Personally I am sick and tired of war and wish we would stay out of it entirely.  Actually, the best position for us would be to let Russia have the entire country of Ukraine. They are billions of dollars in debt and are about at the stage of Chicago during the 1920's.  Corrupt and run by hooligans.  The western world has already offered them billions in loans and maybe that was the plan all along?  We could bomb them with flat screen tv's and old vcr's and out of date tapes.  Maybe "Leave it to Beaver?"  I hope we stay out of it.
This is March 8th and it is 60 degrees in Oregon and I am going crazy in my garden!  Planted outside, the earliest ever, I have spinach, peas, 2 types of kale, 2 broccoli, cabbage, collards and five varieties of lettuce!!  I have well over 100 tomatoes, six different varieties, four different peppers and watermelon are all warm and cozy in the greenhouse!  I am trying my luck at "Hokkaido Black" watermelon this year.  One melon sold at auction last year in Japan for $6,100.  wow!  That is the kind of war we should have!  Who can grow the best watermelon!

Sure, i agree with you. Growing food, eating our produce and distributing it among friends and neighbors is better than planning a war, where no one can benefit.

I don't understand why we can't just let people work it out themselves. Why do we try to make every country out there a little America? At the rate we're going that's not much to look forward to. I don't even have seeds purchased yet, so my garden's just a figment of my imagination.

Ha! Jerry, Oh so Italian babes are not good enough? Ha.. !
Surprisingly I do not want to get involved with any country no matter what is happening.. I'm sick of war, tired of trying to uplift people who are still back in the 14th century.
Stop making EVERYTHING our problem. Take care of our own..
We need some new leadership, someone who thinks like a normal person.
Like my Dad .
