There's so many problems with "taking sides" in this conflict. I do not approve of Russia annexing parts of Ukraine but the Crimeans are in favor of it. Also, anything that those guys, the leftists and the EUcrats, support I'll always be very, very suspicious of. The contradictions and hypocricy makes my position even easier.

I'd imagine they are concerned about Russia invading them again but this time using the 'Russians are there!' excuse like Ukraine. Of course I think if they were to do that with Poland or the Baltic states we would see WWIII.

Pretty much. Sadly, the current scenario doesn't allow easy ways to end this crisis. If Yanukovich hadn't been deposed, he could have called for anticipated elections while he accepted a coalition gov't.

Now we have a coup d'etat supported by UE and USA, and a part of Ukraine under the control of Russia while other regions are possible targets of Kremlin interventions. It's a mess. There's no "good side", of course.

And Jesus... I hope Kir is well. We haven't heard of him for many days.

You can be a lawyer in a military. At least in the US you can.

This fellow seems to like quickening fires that haven't got any fuel.

Now it works. I hadn't realize that, since there is a Military Justice, there should be military lawyer (judge advocates, in the USA).

Active Duty military members get lawyer services free of charge for military justice, giving people power of attorney, and writing up their wills.

The British Left, as usual, are quick to call for war when it suits them, while condemning every other war regardless of the facts.

You're not blind, look around. The usual Guardianistas are at it as always.

While I don't support the Left Wing, I also feel that criticizing the entire Left is a bit too much.

If you are referring to the likes of the Blairites, than perhaps you are right. However, I personally would not call them "leftists". They hold none of the ideals of a proper British labourman.

How would you guys characterize what it means to be 'left wing.' Is it just anti-private ownership?

It depends on the country that one is in. American "leftists" are not really "leftists" at all, by my own calculation. Of course, being "leftist" in the Soviet Union meant Leninism or Trotskyism, as opposed to conservative right-wing "Stalinism". It is all a bit whacky, but we've not got a better framework in which to speak.

Congrats to Kim Jong Un who won a hard fought victory to win his seat in the Supreme People's Assembly!

And he won it with a 100% approval in 100% turnout.

The people in NK care enough about their voice in their gov't to have 100% turnout.
