Why is Ukraine’s Kerch Crisis Any of Our Business?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Why is this our quarrel, to the point that U.S. strategists want us to confront Russia over a Crimean Peninsula that houses the Livadia Palace that was the last summer residence of Czar Nicholas II? Why are we letting ourselves be dragged into everyone's quarrels — from who owns the islets in the South China Sea, to who owns the Senkaku and Southern Kurils; and from whether Transnistria had a right to secede from Moldova, to whether South Ossetia and Abkhazia had the right to break free of Georgia, when Georgia broke free of Russia? Do the American people care a fig for these places? Are we really willing to risk war with Russia or China over who holds title to them?
