From 1929 to 1933 more than 5 million Ukrainians died at the hands of their Russian masters. Stalin was determined to bring the independent farmers and the mostly rural population of the Ukraine to heel. Stalin "modernized" the Ukraine with the point of a bayonet, execution, starvation, and the Gulag. At the height of the enforced "famine" nearly 30,000 Ukrainians died every day. More than five million deaths, all in the name of progressive policies.
Think about that for a moment. Five million deaths. Line up the current population; men, women, children -- of Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco, Detroit, Cleveland, and New Orleans and kill every one over a four year period. That is what Stalin did to the Ukraine. The Democrats in charge of the White House and Congress turned their head and pretended it was not happening. In fact, FDR recognized Stalin and the Soviet Union as a legitimate government.
Russia has invaded the Crimea area of Ukraine. I am pretty sure President Obama firmly believes that Fox News, Israel, and George Bush are to blame. The Commander-in-Chief is still probably looking at the various "lead from behind" options. I do not think there is truth to the rumor the Obama's had Chicken Kiev for dinner this week.
