Russia’s Intervention in the Ukraine; Europe and America’s Reaction

The Treaty of Munster, 1648, part of the Westphalian peace, whereby the sovereignty of states and the norms of non-interference towards other states were enshrined.

 

The West’s response to Russia’s aggression in Ukraine has been stronger than many had predicted when ‘little green men’ first started appearing in Crimea. Likely a perception of Western weakness was based partially on recent trends, such as a war-weary America seen as withdrawing from the world, by recent events such as Syria, and from similar events years before, when the West did little in the face of Russian aggression towards Georgia.

An Independent Scotland’s National Defence

The Highland Regiment during the Crimean War. Will Scots continue to serve abroad?

The SNP’s defence proposals for an independent Scotland suggest a military focused towards territorial defence within a modest budget of £2.5 billion, whilst eschewing the capabilities needed for foreign expeditionary warfare. This a wise strategy for any independent Scotland.

I thought I would keep a post documenting all the lies Obama has told since he became President. If I miss any please tell me. (I thought it best not to include broken campaign promises).

3) “The temperature around the globe is rising faster than was predicted even ten years ago”.

The pro-Union campaign retain the lead but this has shrunk steadily over time so that now the result will be a close one.
