In the meantime, Obama is refusing to take charge of foreign policy.
White House Leaving Ukraine Crisis Up to Biden
The police aren’t taking this seriously. Superior firepower wins the day.
Seven dead policemen indicates that the “freedom fighters” are armed... similar to Syria, actually.
Let’s look at the usual suspects when it comes to eastern European revolutions...

I am so confused by all the Russian Drama.....
I know that some of the dissidents in the former Soviet Union are muslim radicals. I thought the Ukraine had had some modicum of freedom but then their last elections put some of Putin’s buddies back in power (at least I think that’s what happened....since news doesn’t cover it much anymore I may be wrong).
I guess my question is this: am I cheering for the rebels in this case or not?
I have no idea what is going on
Its the Sluzhba Bezpeky Ukrayiny - SBU - Ukraine’s version of Russia’s FSB that is the successor to the Soviet era KGB. The authorities can also call out the Internal Troops to suppress riots and disorders.
check out what happened in Venezuela:
They arrested the opposition leader for murders carried out by government backed colectivos, and everyone knows it
Who is doing the rioting? Are they Muslims?
The hot spots around the world are blowing up from Venezuela to Kiev to Syria and obama’s foreign policy consists of playing golf with a sheik and trying to turn Africa into a rainbow. Give us a break man.

And firearms too... what little they have.
Governments always show their hand in how they treat protest. Ultimately, the response goes to “comply or die”.
Sucks for them when the people get the nerve to stand up and say “Oh, really?”
Thousands of Ukrainians were killed by the Russians in the 1800’s and they haven’t forgotten.
