I hear a smack of Soviet Union. I get a bad feeling it is coming back.
Welcome back to 1956 and 1968!
I have a friend named Olga who lives there..in her emails she always complains about the corruption. Same ole same ole, it seems.
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.
The Revolution won't be televised then?
"Here we go..."
Indeed. Pray for God's will for the people of Kiev.
No. Just blogged.
Fastiv highway? Is that named after the upcoming holiday of Fastivus?
Who says you need seventeen United Nations peace keeping resolutions to invade another country?
I wonder who the embeds will be. Has Putan chose any yet?
Putin and his chosen can't lose. This is going to get bloody.
Now they have shifted to another part of the world.
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.
On another post, someone posted that 5 tv stations have been shut down.
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.
Here comes Hungary and Czechoslovakia again!
Yes please, plus a some anti-tank munitions... if you don't mind.
lol. you dope.
reminds me of hungary in 1956 and czechloslovkia in 1968.
Mods, please put this back in Breaking News. What are you thinking?!
Maybe. I have a feeling we're about to witness the airing of grievances.
International pressure apparently is having no affect on Putin. He's determined to maintain control of those nukes.....and the breadbasket.
12 tanks? It's some rogue, or drunk, officer.
Festivus for the rest of us.... The lopper and frogger was on tonight...
I can't remember that far back...lol
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?
Unfortunately the French couldn't do in our election what the Russian's have done in this one.
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.
EXCUSE ME!! DISREGARD THAT PREVIOUS POST AND SUBSTITUTE THE WORD "UNFORTUNATELY" WITH "FORTUNATELY"!!!
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 Yuschenkos 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.
It was either the Czar or the Communists dominating Eastern Europe.
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).
Does anyone know if FoxNews has anyone in Kiev? If they don't they need to get someone there ASAP.
