Kerry: “All options are on the table” in response to Russian invasion of Crimea


The last time "the west" fought the Russians in the Crimea in 1854 was at the Battle of Balaclava. The "Valley of Death" shown here in a photo by clipper in 2011:

memorialized by Alfred, Lord Tennyson in his "Charge of the Light Brigade" wherein a stanza:

'Forward, the Light Brigade!'
Was there a man dismay'd?
Not tho' the soldiers knew
  Some one had blunder'd:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
  Rode the six hundred.
 God forbid that this blundering Obama administration repeat the mistakes of 160 years ago!
