Ukrainian Hypocrisy

Whilst Russian interference in a foreign country should rightfully be condemned by all peoples that respect the sovereignty of nations, it is significant to note that the loudest condemnation of the present situation in the Ukraine has come from those countries whose track records are the most blood stained.
The US and British positions smack of flagrant hypocrisy in light of recent incursions into Iraq and Afghanistan.
On a larger time scale New Zealanders have not forgotten the US's attempt to isolate their country for pursuing a nuclear free policy and the French disregard for sovereignty over the Rainbow Warrior sinking in Auckland harbour.
To his credit, Putin has not fabricated any threats of chemical weapons or the harbouring of terrorist activity to justify his country's actions. The response of the people in the Crimea seem to indicate that he has the support of the majority of people in that region. To that extent he appears to have the moral authority for his decisions.
The Western powers have already responded to protecting their own selfish interests with the prospect of isolating Russia from their economic wealth.
For those of us who live on the other side of the world and are least likely to be affected by whatever deals are finally negotiated,  it can only be hoped that this may be another signal for smaller and more ordinary people's worldwide, to unite in condemnation against the bullying tactics of a select few aggressive power wielding nations. 
There is little doubt that a negotiated solution will be found for the Ukrainians but for those looking objectively from outside the conflict there should be hope that the long term benefit of this latest skirmish will be the recognition that the interests of all smaller groups can not be dictated to by threats from those of greater size.

Others stopped laughing and applauding. When a friend told me about Sleeps-On-Bridges, I was away from ESO and all other MMOs for a few years.
