News is reporting that Crimea voted to leave Ukraine and that President Obama has declared that this violates international law.
Here in Massachusetts, the state legislature writes state laws. The U.S. Congress writes federal laws. So who writes “international laws”? In addition, who enforces them? It’s not as if there is a Executive Branch of World government to enforce those laws.
And as a geography question, what is that small entity on the southeast part of the Crimean peninsula. It’s about the size of Rhode Island and contains the city of Sevastopol, but appears to be excluded from Crimea when the news shows a map of the area.
