SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine — Partial election results released late Sunday showed Crimean voters overwhelmingly supporting a referendum measure that would see their region break away from Ukraine and join Russia.

With half the ballots counted, Mikhail Malyshev, head of the Crimea Election Commission, said in televised remarks that more than 95% of voters approved the option of annexation with Russia over a second option offered, which called for seeking more autonomy within Ukraine.

The referendum was widely denounced by the United States, much of Europe and Ukraine's acting government, which came to power last month after protests drove pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovich from power, as an illegal seizure of Ukraine's territory.

“In this century, we are long past the days when the international community will stand quietly by while one country forcibly seizes the territory of another,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said in a statement earlier Sunday that called on the international community to “take concrete steps to impose costs” on Moscow.

I love that last part, Whitehouse mouthpiece throws empty threats into wind, unbridled laughter from around the world follows.

Impotent,ignorant and arrogant , that's what we have for an administration here.

There isn't a damn thing they can do about it, we know it, they know it and Russia knows it.

The whole world knows it.

The diplomatic skills this administration has borders on being non existent.

Empty threats is all they got.

They are so used to throwing their weight around at all these little piss ant countries around the world that they have forgotten that there are other Big Fish in the pond with sharp teeth.

You can also bet your ass the Ukrainian's are ruing the day they let us talk them into believing we would have their back against Russia.

What's the old saying - 'possession in 9/10ths of the law'? The folks in Crimea may be uninformed as to what the russian bear has in mind for them (can you say vassal state - at best - I knew you could) but they are NOT stupid, the red army is already in de facto control, why would they not go along to get along (survive in this case).
