Doesn't matter what the USA "would have done". Deeds matter, not speculations.
Are you illiterate or just pretending...The US DID nuke Japs!
To make matters more open to criticism, without a compelling military need. Duh! So how is what I posted speculation?
To all the idiots here who have a problem understanding what "Russia defending itself" means...When Donbas becomes part of Russia - just as Hawaii became part of the US - an attack by anyone on Donbas, including Ukraine, is the same as an attack on Moscow. How many countries recognize Donbas as part of Russia means nothing, just as it would mean sh*it to the US how many crapholes recognized Hawaii as another state. The US would defend Hawaii the day after it joined, regardless of who approved and who did not.
The same with Gitmo - a piece of Cuba we don't even own.
Yes, I know...America is a democracy and Russia is evil. Therefore, whatever the US does is good and what Russia does is bad.
There is no justification whatsoever
Dragging this discussion to the third-grade level is childish. Justifications are not necessary when you have a big fist. Just call the White House...Or my hero Truman.
