"War with Russia" says right-wing nut job at the Washington Examiner

7 mile Bridge in True Lies

Bomb a Russian Bridge says Warmonger

  • Idiot warmongering is totally bipartisan and spans all periods of history. 
  • Now we see a drooling right-wing loon urge war with Russia. Naturally 99.9% of warmongers have no desire to fight in the war themselves, but would love for other people's children fight and die in a war.

(Washington Examiner)  -  Russian President Vladimir Putin opened the Kerch Strait Bridge connecting Crimea, Ukraine, with mainland Russia on Tuesday. Putin did so by in a typical show of bravado by leading a column of transport vehicles across the bridge.
Ukraine should now destroy elements of the bridge.
While that course of action would be an escalation against Putin and one that would almost certainly spark Russian retaliation, this bridge is an outrageous affront to Ukraine's very credibility as a nation. 
Of course, from Putin's perspective that's the whole point. The bridge cost Russia's near-bankrupt government billions of dollars, but it offers Putin a formal physical and psychological appropriation of Ukrainian territory.

The new Kerch Strait Bridge connecting Russian Crimea with mainland Russia.

Russian since the 1700s
Novorossiya  - literally New Russia is a historical term denoting an area 
north of the Black Sea which was conquered by the Russian Empire at the 
end of the 18th century.  The area had previously been controlled for 
centuries by the Crimean Khanate and Ottoman Turkey.

What if Putin said:
"Give back Hawaii."

Putin could easily say that if it is wrong for Russia to want Russian speaking Crimea back then it is wrong for the U.S. to continue holding the Kingdom of Hawaii.  Two can play at the game of national borders.
