I'm sure they won't. Why? Because they know it's wrong. Unlike some of the neo-Soviets creeping about FR these days.
Meanwhile, I'm sure you and your cohorts will no doubt continue carping on about how "most of the East" voted for Yanukovich, and how Putin is such a good Christian.
Amazing that the neo-Soviet thugocracy keeps trying to repeat history. Do they think they can partition the Ukraine like Germany after WWII? LOL.
Now I know why the pharmaceutical industry is so profitable.
They're not just working together.
They're the same people.
Don't forget that Yanukovich is also a convicted criminal, with crimes like robbery and assault on his record. Mob man, no doubt, which is why the maffia is trying to steal the election for him.
Every last one us...Dick Lugar, Colin Powell, the Canadian government, the OSCE, the EU, the Poles, NATO....all paranoid. In fact, the only sane players in this little psychodrama are you and Pootie-Poot.
There was a Pavlo Lazarenko who embezzled a ton of money (together with Yuliya Timoshchenko). He took off for the states and Yuliya was 'planted' in jail for awhile.'96? 2000? I can't remember. I don't know if was ever an ambassador or whatever, but I think it was the former president of Georgia who was the big foreign minister for Gorby.
That is true.
The only thing you can be sure of is that Putin (and his devout amen corner here on FR) do NOT have either Ukrainian or American interests at heart.
Yes indeed, "The Great Gate at Kiev".
Well the pharm industry surely hates me. Never ill, doctor for a physical every two years, don't even take aspirin but once every couple years. Another misconception of yours crushed to smithereens. Or was it not a misconception but just a garden variety pan Slavist discrediting operation attempt.
As an aside, I do find it humorous, that here I am, ethnically "pan Slavic" (but for a slight amount of German and Mongol blood and with acknowlegement of being more or less assimilated into Anglo American culture) arguing with an American born WASP who buys into Pan Slavism. Amazing, truly amazing! The world has gone completely mad....
WASP? I don't think so. Define this word for me.
Are you a Christian, do you mind my asking?
From an article last April:
...But the corruption is much wider and more universal. For example: in 2001 according to the inventory by our armed forces, 200 tanks were in use and combat-ready. And they were happy about it. But now it has been shown that from 2000-2001 in the Ukrainian armed forces only 10(!) tanks were in use.
From one point of view, there is optimism. Since the tanks are still there, it means no one stole them. But so far as much as the utilization of tanks costs money, would it not be interesting to find out where the money went that was to be used for maintenance of the other 190 tanks, which, according to the military, were being utilized and at full combat readiness?
Hopefully someone can post some pics of these tanks soon, because I don't think many pharmacies are open tomorrow.
That's right! It was Georgia!! I still can't remember his name, but, oh well...
