Lawmakers allow Putin to use military in Ukraine

• Associated Press
KIEV, Ukraine — Russia’s parliament granted President Vladimir Putin permission to use the country’s military in Ukraine and also recommended Saturday that Moscow’s ambassador be recalled from Washington over comments made by President Barack Obama.
The unanimous vote in an emergency session formalized what Ukrainian officials described as an invasion of Russian troops in the strategic region of Crimea. With pro-Russian protests breaking out in other parts of Ukraine, Moscow now could send its military elsewhere in Ukraine.
“I’m submitting a request for using the armed forces of the Russian Federation on the territory of Ukraine pending the normalization of the socio-political situation in that country,” Putin said before the vote.

The overall picture that is painted here is kinda good. Why? Because it shows just how hard it is for the Power Elite to take over the world.

If you try to hold water in the coup of your hand, you can do it a little. But it is difficult to hold very much liquid water in the palm of your hand without it running out between your fingers, or off the sides of your hand.

Consider that the world governmental leaders of many of the nations all want more. The power of the Power Elite is limited in how far they can control the leaders of the major nations in the world. These leaders all want control, and so they fight among themselves - nation against nation - and nation against the Power Elite. The result is that often they ignore us little people. And, often, of course, they simply annihilate us.

We need to be wise. We need to keep our eyes and ears completely open. We need to be able to determine whether the Government we side with is the right Government to side with. We need to know when to move and when to remain where we are at.

Lucky for the smart few of us, many of the people of the world are SO caught up in their pleasures that we can often move safely... unnoticed.

There ya go.  The same thing that happened with Iraq.  So who is the world to question the democratic and lawful process of Russia?
