Well, don't be worried... It won't be the Soviet Union...

It'll probably the Mafia Union or the Thugs Union... Or something like that which is less likely to cause alarm in Western Europe, where thugs and the mafia pretty much dictate policy. /sarcasm

Like two peas in a pod.

I notice with the resurgence of Communism and Nazism mixed with radical Islam, anti-Christian and anti-Semitism rises.

Caution urged in Ukraine

Washington, DC, Nov. 24 (UPI) -- The United States warned its citizens Wednesday against potential civil unrest and disturbances in Ukraine.

There is no resurgence of Communism. This is just cronyism and oligarchy. Communism at least gave people some kind of idealist philosophy to rally around. Though we weren't expecting it just yet, and we've been preoccupied with other things -- even perhaps finding this to be "inconvenient" at this particular time, the Ukraine's velvet revolution is coming.

Probably by All that Jazz.

There was a protest at the Russian Embassy this p.m. in DC.

So Putin has complete control again, plus citizens who now have corruption instead of communism.

They will have to learn that Freedom and democracy are not free.....they take decades to establish.

Just another step towards the normalization of a society. The bumps in the road must be felt on unsteady limbs.

Let's hope it is not too awful.

Maybe. I have a feeling we're about to witness the airing of grievances.

I've had a bad feeling about this since yesterday morning....

International pressure apparently is having no affect on Putin. He's determined to maintain control of those nukes.....and the breadbasket.

I read an article in the Weekly Standard online that said there were precints in a pro-Russia section of the Ukraine that had over 100 percent turnout for the Putin puppet.

That's news? The Democrats do it here in the U.S. all the time!

Is there any confirmation on this. Is this a DEBKA type source??? Did the tanks come from Russia? Are those Ruskies after our precious bodily fluids?

12 tanks could instill fear in an unarmed and intimidated populace. They can't do squat against a determined enemy armed with nothing more than gasoline-filled bottles.

IMHO Communism and thuggery are synomynous, and have always have been. The "ideals" of Communism were and are
a smoke screen to charm and mislead "the masses".

Raging people of Gorokhiv are blocking the Head of the Regional Council in his office.

Today deputies of Gorokhiv Town Council (Volyn Oblast) could not get the decision to recognize Yuschenko as President. They missed three votes. To protest the actions of their representatives, people of Gorokhiv entered the building of the Regional Administration and blocked the Head of the Council in his office. People were lead by a deputy of Volyn Regional Council as well as the deputies of Gorokhiv Town Council, that yesterday proclaimed Yuschenko a lawfully elected President. Gorokhiv Town Council said that it is ready to respond to Yuschenko’s orders. The people of the town are appalled by the decision of its Regional Council and demand the recognition of their will through massive protests and joining the all-Ukrainian strike.

Iouschenko is Chirac's man, the puppet
whose strings are pulled by
France, now the sword of Islam, the
refuge for all the terrorists...

Why can we take action against Al Qaida
and not Russia???

All the Chechen terrorists are now based
in France, just like the Algerians Salafists.

Why do you think Algeria have renewed its
Air force with Russia and why Côte D'Ivoire
is expelling all the French citizen???

Both are tired of fighting terrorists based in
France and if Chirac try a little too hard,
I am sure Putin will put a stop to France's
interference in Ukraine.

As been posted before "tanks" are APC probably Ukrainian but they dont have any markings on them.. so still can be Russian.

Multiple sources report 4 planes with russian special ops landed yesterday (450 people) and 2 planes landed today at Kiev's borispol airport. Some reports that they are not only protecting Kuchma and Yanukovich but also evacuating documents to russia, like they did in Iraq (same troops).
