Sarah Palin on Ukraine: "Yes, I could see this one from Alaska."

The former 2008 Republican Vice Presidential candidate and ex-Alaskan Governor reminded the nation of her Facebook page Friday about a prediction she made before President Obama was elected.

CBS News reported March 1 that Palin predicted Russia was going to invade Ukraine after they invaded neighboring Georgia.

Palin wrote:

“Yes, I could see this one from Alaska. I'm usually not one to Told-Ya-So, but I did, despite my accurate prediction being derided as ‘an extremely far-fetched scenario’ by the ‘high-brow’ Foreign Policy magazine. Here’s what this ‘stupid’ ‘insipid woman’ predicted back in 2008: ‘After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama's reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia's Putin to invade Ukraine next.’”

Whatever people may think of the Sarah Palin Ukraine post on Facebook, there is little argument that she is right in this instance. Granted, Palin has a way with words.... and tends to throw it in everyone's face when she knows she is right...but she is bashed in the press relentlessly.

For instance, talk show host Mark Levin tweeted this about Palin's comments:

"Palin not only knows where Russia is, but she knew what Putin would do to Ukraine with Obama as president."

How do you feel about Sarah Palin's Ukraine message on Facebook?
