"It’s not unheard of. It’s just the difference between democracy and dictatorship in these countries."
LMAO!!! If you honestly think that democratic countries don't do the exact same things to other countries, you're a bigger sucker than I though.
"I’m not at all surprised that you prefer Russian-tinged dictatorship to Western-tinged democracy."
It's not a question of "ought", it's a question of "is"
"You guys were never democrats."
LOL. Well, I, for one, think that the only moral outcome in Palestine/Israel is a single state from the Mediterranean to the Jordan River, where every gets the vote and everyone's vote is equal. So, Mr. Democrat, do you join me in that call? Or is "Western-tinged democracy" only a goal when it wouldn't mean an end to "Jewish-tinged Apartheid"??
"If it’s Russia’s historically, international law doesn’t matter."
No one said it doesn't matter. We're talking about why Russia would take that step, in response to your nutty neo-Red Scare horse crap.
"This is another reason why I people like you have no credibility when you talk about international law. You couldn’t care less about it."
Well, International law requires Israel to withdraw completely from the territories it seized in 1967. If you're not willing to call for it to immediately do so without conditions or limitations, then your commitment to international law is suspect.
"No, I just understand history."
Well, you've yet to demonstrate it.
"We have to invade other states to protect our kind, whether they’re Catholics, Protestants, Germans, Russians, Sunnis, Shiites ."
So you're calling Zionism inherently wrong from the start??? I mean, the excuse that the Zionists came up with when they proposed their idea to invade Palestine, take it over and then start an oppressive Apartheid regime was to supposedly protect their own kind. Or is this only an invalid option when the people you hope to protect are mere "Catholics, Protestants, Germans, Russians, Sunnis, Shiites"??
"The common thread here is that you just hate the West and wish the USSR had never fallen."
LMAO!!! Well, there were better Red-baiters than you back then, that's for sure.
"Well, the international community recognizes Israel within the 1967 borders."
Great. When are you going to call for Israel to be sanctioned until it returns to those borders?
"So when does the boycott of Russia begin?"
There's already an international sanctions regime in place. When you're willing to support the same for Israel, then we'll talk.
"If Russian had CIS approval to invade Crimea and Georgia before it, I probably wouldn’t oppose it because it would reflect the will of the entire region."
So then if all the states in the Middle East region approved an invasion of Israel to liberate Palestine from the Zionists, you wouldn't oppose that?? How about if they just approved Hamas and Hezbollah attacking it?? Or is there another of your famed "Jewish" exceptions to this position, too??
"I’m not a sucker. I just give more weight to the United States than I do to Russia."
Yeah, because we all know how scrupulous the US is in not interfering or invading other countries. LOL!!!
