Obama says Crimea separation vote would break law

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama declared today that a referendum in 10 days on the future of a Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula would violate international law, and the United States moved to impose visa restrictions and financial sanctions on Russians and Ukrainians for the moves Moscow already has made into Crimea. Speaking from the White House, Obama said any decisions on the future of Crimea, a pro-Russian area of Ukraine, must include the country’s new government.

Violate international law? President Obama should feel flattered. Seems the Ukrainians have taken to heart Obama's Axiom: "Pay no attention to laws you don't like."

We should stay out of it. The people of Crimea can vote to do whatever they want, even if we don't agree with their decision. It is their land, not ours. Crimea was not always a part of Ukraine so if they vote to become part of Russia again, OH WELL. Best we can hope for is a peaceful transition.
