I keep reading on various blogs that this Russian Ukraine situation is just like the Iraq situation where we as the US…

"An adversary who has no problem allowing a news caster of theirs to easily say in this tense time: “Russia is the only country in the world realistically capable of turning the United States into radioactive ash,”(anchor Dmitry Kiselyov said on his weekly news show on state-controlled Rossiya 1 television)."

That’s OK, I guess Russia isn’t allowed to have freedom of speech? Cool.

No. Russia does not have freedom of speech. They have always been censured- at least majority of their literature has through out history. Things by their own authors.
Observe the author of the legendary Dr. Zhivago. The Russian government denied the book to be published in their nation because it was against their world view:

So freedom of speech that is only allowed under specific parameters (I.e what Putin decides to promote,or his new favorite dictator movement) is no free speech at all. That means when that reporter said what he said, he had the approval of the Kremlin to threaten the US.

Ukrainian Constitution states that in order for Crimea to succeed legally, all Ukrainian people have to vote, not just those in Crimea.

Okay so…that IS why Ukraine sees the annex of Crimea as illegal- as Russia showed up in large numbers to “help” that along.  Are you saying that riots should be illegal? And that the US has a right to declare/ interfere inside nation protests? Or are you saying that people voted for Crimea as was reported by Russian officials so it should be allowed. Do you not understand why everyone (NATO, EU) is so tense about this situation? Have you not heard of Russia’s  desires to gain Finland- a nation that is most defiantly NOT their own. Have you never studied the Iron Curtain? Or even more recently, a speech Putin gave his people about a month ago in which he said “the west has kept us within our boarders for too long?”This is an ignorant meme.
