Not like we were doing or going to do much in the Ukraine anyways. In a couple decades it'll be the new normal and we'll all just do a collective shoulder shrug when Russia assures us that it has always been the legitimate ruler of the Ukraine (and I mean all of it, not just the Crimea).

China will probably take the same tack with the South "China" Sea too.

Russia's actions and, heck, even the US' post-Korea, are as clear a sign as any of the impotence of the UN and any other supposed international "law" enforcement body. Powerful countries will do what they want to do and that's just the way it is on panet Earth. Always has been. Whether we like it or not, we should acknowledge that reality and count our blessings that we're (mostly) in one of the powerful countries.
