NYT: Russian troops amassing by the thousands on Ukrainian border

this is preparation for an invasion. And for those who hate being called Putin apologists, why don't they go ahead and speak out now against this aggressiveness from Putin that is sure to lead to bloodshed?

If someone is unwilling to condemn such behavior that is counter to any diplomatic efforts currently taking place to calm the region down after Yanukovych's flight out of Ukraine, then it speaks volumes.

1. And the other half of the story.


With NATO announcing its own deployments of fighter jets and exercises to countries on Ukraine’s western border, the crisis appeared to be worsening despite 11th-hour diplomatic efforts to halt a secession referendum scheduled for Sunday in Crimea.

2. how is that the same? If NATO and/or Ukrainian forces were massing on Russian border

 

it might be equivalent though seen by many as reaction to the initial provocative actions of Russia.

The fact that you play false equivalence on this is noteworthy.
