I keep waiting for leftists all over the world to organize huge rallies in all the Western capitals to protest the Russian invasion of the Crimea.
No blood for oil, the chant will ring. There will be signs galore all saying, No blood for oil. You did realize this move by Putin was about both Crimean oil fields and exploration and a natural gas pipeline to Western Europe, didnt you? Its plain old-fashioned imperialism.
To channel Country Joe McDonald : So cmon all you lefties both far and near, there is a cause we love so dear, an imperialist monster wants to make a snack, of the Crimean, so lets talk smack ... cuz its one ... two ... three ... what are we protestin for ... dont ask me cuz I dont give damn ... lets protest like its Vietnam ... and its five, six, seven ... open up those pearly gates ... we aint got time to wonder why whoopee ... an excuse to get high.
My guess is the lack of outrage from the left has to do with a sentimental attachment to Mother Russia.
