    If Crimea votes to secede back to Russia, there isn't a good enough reason not to let it just happen. We don't want war with Russia, they seem to be decent folk and Vlad's polling numbers are over 70% positive, which is one heck of a lot better than any of our Politicians. We don't need another War and we don't need to be ragging on Vlad and Russia. It was barely few weeks ago the Ukraine was up in smoke over throwing their government causing massive damage to Kiev. We have plenty of our own problems to deal with here that have a much greater impact on our people and the world. For example: We need to stop the XL Pipeline and one thing to consider regarding that is the record number of earthquakes Oklahoma is experiencing. Leaks and disasters loom at every turn and we don't want Big Oil destroying the Aquifer thus destroying farmland throughout the Midwest. Let them build a refinery in Canada or somewhere up north, and keep the jobs up north. Beware of Big Oil sabotaging trains, it appears they will do anything(including murder) to get what they want and there is plenty of evidence they have left in their history to support that fact.
