Is it just me or does the pictures not make sense. Isn't a peace sign coming from a explosion a contradiction?
biggest_pro_going says2015-04-26T15:09:04.2159433-05:00
It is a bit strange
biggest_pro_going says2015-04-26T15:09:55.9518702-05:00
I think it is saying that there should be peace not explosions (war).
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-26T15:10:03.1271784-05:00
You find it strange yet you made the poll. Were you picking it to be strange on purpose?
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-26T15:12:30.6894702-05:00
I take the picture as "'peace peace' but there is no peace."
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-26T15:12:56.2737982-05:00
Or you could also take it as peace through bombs.

"Peace is determined by the guy with a bigger stick". Forgot who said that but I think it fits.

1 Reason, great, Sanctions do nothing to Russia. Plus if Russia actually invaded Ukraine America would size the chance and along with its slaves invade Russia. Russia is NOT EVIL and would not for no Reason invade Ukraine.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-26T15:18:18.7245675-05:00
America doesn't have slaves.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-26T15:19:45.0614390-05:00
"Russia is NOT EVIL and would not for no Reason invade Ukraine." Their reason-greed. Keep in mind that Hitler didn't invade Poland for no reason, he invaded it for control and power.
biggest_pro_going says2015-04-26T15:22:03.2636108-05:00
The UK, I live there believe me.
biggest_pro_going says2015-04-26T15:23:26.0382720-05:00
Are you going to compare Putin and Hitler? Why...
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-26T15:23:43.6203004-05:00
What does you living in the UK matter with anything.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-26T15:25:15.3332732-05:00
"Are you going to compare Putin and Hitler? Why..." I was comparing a reasoning error. You said that Russia wouldn't invade Ukraine for no reason. In order for me to highlight this reasoning error I gave an extreme example where it is obvious.
biggest_pro_going says2015-04-26T15:26:04.2563074-05:00
You mean because the Crimean/Russia governments organized a referendum were over 95% of people voted to join Russia. Hitler did not hold a referendum in Poland with the help of the Polish government did he or am i wrong?
biggest_pro_going says2015-04-26T15:28:38.9782840-05:00
Come on think before you type "What does you living in the UK matter with anything." YOU said "America doesn't have slaves" so i was saying no i live in the UK and therefor know that most political parties there for the country is a slave to America.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-26T15:29:57.4488945-05:00
Does 95% of Ukraine want to join russia? Weird, the statistics I am looking at says 18.2%, seems like a big difference.
biggest_pro_going says2015-04-26T15:30:29.5619196-05:00
Look at different countries responses to the Crimean referendum. USA is the biggest because you know USA/Russia hate each other and 2nd is the UK. Trying to impress there American masters by moaning at Russia more than anybody else.
biggest_pro_going says2015-04-26T15:31:07.5372936-05:00
Crimean is NOT UKRAINE
biggest_pro_going says2015-04-26T15:31:45.0730698-05:00
"Does 95% of Ukraine want to join russia?" What, i said nothing of the sort
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-26T15:32:45.9450502-05:00
"Plus if Russia actually invaded Ukraine America would size the chance and along with its slaves invade Russia. Russia is NOT EVIL and would not for no Reason invade Ukraine."

biggest_pro_going says2015-04-26T15:33:57.7527708-05:00
Seize* sorry
biggest_pro_going says2015-04-26T15:34:51.0898546-05:00
Why are you quoting what i said?
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-26T15:45:57.0779928-05:00
Dealing with the crimea referendum, tell me what were the options on the ballot?
biggest_pro_going says2015-04-26T15:56:15.1321851-05:00
Become there own country or join Russia i think, are u saying stay with Ukraine would have been a good option. I have watched biased western news go into Crimea and people are happy. A British poll about 1 month ago said over 90% of Crimean people are happy , even the ex pm of Japan went their and said that "there were no tanks rolling across the streets or no riots, it was just a happy place" a lot more happy than the other regions that the US refuses to let join Russia!
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-26T15:57:31.5208958-05:00
You should probably research what were the options of the referendum.
biggest_pro_going says2015-04-26T16:03:28.2396943-05:00
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crimean_status_referendum,_2014 -i am more right! They did have an option to stay with Ukraine!
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-26T16:09:09.1972397-05:00
Wrong incorrect. Read a little more closely. The 1992 crimean constitution was the only choice.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-26T16:11:33.9995536-05:00
Most importantly, the referendum didn't give the option to keep things the way they were.
biggest_pro_going says2015-04-26T16:55:57.9412953-05:00
What are u talking about they did have an option to keep it how it was it clearly seas that. What...
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-26T16:57:43.4873874-05:00
Did you even read the source you gave me?
biggest_pro_going says2015-04-26T17:01:57.0842386-05:00
Choice 1: Do you support the reunification of Crimea with Russia with all the rights of the federal subject of the Russian Federation? Choice 2: Do you support the restoration of the Constitution of the Republic of Crimea in 1992 and the status of the Crimea as part of Ukraine?[68]
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-26T17:02:46.5027990-05:00
"The available choices did not include keeping the status quo of Crimea and Sevastopol as they were at the time the referendum was held. The 1992 constitution accords greater powers to the Crimean parliament including full sovereign powers to establish relations with other states, therefore many commentators argued that both provided referendum choices would result in de facto separation from Ukraine.[3][4][5]"

biggest_pro_going says2015-04-26T17:05:51.3212416-05:00
Crimea as part of Ukraine!!!! I have to go now i am fear what i may find when i come back bye.

DominicM says2015-04-26T22:22:11.5385746-05:00
Lifting the sanction although giving the russian government power. It benefits the economy of russia and the russian people along with all the economies of the EU which would benifit people all acroos the world.
Diqiucun_Cunmin says2015-04-27T06:52:02.3706597-05:00
@Mathgeekjoe: It's a victory sign though, not a peace sign.
biggest_pro_going says2015-04-27T09:37:58.8012731-05:00
But the people of Crimea want to be in Russia so is that bad?
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-29T15:37:26.5579660-05:00
" It's a victory sign though, not a peace sign." Your right, Nixon used it for victory.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-29T15:38:40.2460605-05:00
"But the people of Crimea want to be in Russia so is that bad?" The referendum didn't prove that, it didn't give options that many of the voters wanted.
biggest_pro_going says2015-04-30T14:14:18.2669805-05:00
It did so did the fact that virtually all other polls/interviews back me up. Its not WW2 if the US found 1 crack in Crimea it would really exploit it.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-30T14:37:28.1154313-05:00
Show me these alternate polls you speak of.
