Yeah okay lol. One can’t really read about diplomacy “crises” these days; Putin is an artful douche and US hipocrisy is sickening, so maybe the parts involved should invite the non-western world to do some arbitrage. I rolled my eyes reading on the news that an oscar winner mentioned “the people” in Venezuela and Ukraine, as if you can still ride on the coat tails of every post-Arab spring, regardless of context and outcome. Surely “peoples” everywhere are crossing squares and pushing out dictators, but also endorsing technocratic govts and inviting IMF “aid”. Therefore the Crimea situation is very reminiscent of the Cold War, the days people resented being stuck between a rock and a hard place.
