This is correct. In a recent move by the US Corporation's President, Barrach Heussein Obama (Barry Soetorro) has recognized the Crimean Penninsula as an independent nation.
(((Please pray that the Evil in America is immobilized and contained and that we receive gentle prolonged rain in hte American South West.)))
In a recent speech the US President called for "Crimea."
The Quote is as follows:
"intended to provide clarity to U.S. corporations doing business in the region and reaffirm that the United States will not accept Russia’s occupation and attempted annexation of Crimea."
Pleas notice how the President singles out "Crimea" as a separate region and fears it's annexation by Russia.
This action is formal recognition that CRIMEA is a separate and independent nation.
This legally allows "CRIMEA" to write treaties, borrow unlimited amounts of money from the IMF and World Bank, and enter into negotiations with the United Nations as an independent state.
Good Job President Obama.
What no other Nation State could do you just did in one little tiny speech.
When the American CIvil War was going on President Lincoln managed to keep all other Nations associated with the then Austrian Courts (The UN of it's day) from recognizing the Southern States and in a Speech ALMOST blundered into recognizing them as independent but fell just short of this his administration.
Obama is no Lincoln, he and his speech writers are - well - Dumber that a Granite Stone. If you deny an area is independent you do not put sanctions on this "Independent and Free" area.
President Obama and his White House Staff will go down as the Dumbest White House in history.
