I have been supportive of the new Ukraine up to now. This double stupid retarded move makes me question the intelligence of those now in charge. A smarter thing to do would be to ask for these groups to leave the city and take their arms with them. Thank them for their help and say to them that they need their arms to defend Ukraine proper which is very definitely in jeopardy. Disarming your allies is a very stupid thing to do.
...I have been suspicious of this government....they have the support of OBAMA.
Remember a few weeks ago when Obama’s Deputy SecState and the US ambassador to Ukraine were caught on a phone call saying “F*** the E.U.”? That was a conversation regarding WHO WAS SUPPOSED TO TAKE OVER Ukraine if the Yankuovich guy (I think that was him) was overthrown. Yankuovich was Russian leaning, and the EU and Team Obama were each supporting different successors.
My guess is Team Obama wanted a guy who would OBEY their wishes—which apparently includes GUN GRABBING.
I hate to say that you've been conned, but you have been.
Then, the powers that be that wanted regime change to go their way, want the power to be theirs, not the group that did the dirty work. In Libya, the violent groups aren't going easily. Remember NATO voted for airstrikes "so the protestors could go home peacefully" and then used that to oust Khaddafi when the protests failed? In Egypt, it took the military to clean up the mess when the Muslim Brotherhood gained control of the gov and over-reached. In Syria, those intent on violent coup won't stop, even if they level the country.
And now, same playbook. The thugs staged a violent coup (those burning tires are something that would've gotten them shot in any US city except a few crazier ones) and the puppet government is saying they should just hand in their guns, go back home, and oh by the way be exploited by globalist bankers and power brokers.
Should it concern us? Of course. Our troops belong on our southern border and the invaders need to be sent home before someone sees advantage in having their protests go violent.
