It’d be a shame to think that some of these people really would base a foreign policy on Putin’s position on gays. I think he believes that stuff as much as he believed in communism and and now as much as he believes in Christianity.

Whoever had enough money at risk to refuse to be outbid by Russia and couldn't risk waiting to see the outcome of an election that was only a few months away.

Of course, maybe Ukrainians just don't like elections without a little excitement in the streets first.

If you say Putin is Satan incarnate and everyone else is as pure as wind driven snow, great.

Yep, better put the tin foil hats on and blame it all on NWO/neo-con/sodomite EU/IMF/Rothschilds/Monsanto nazi conspiracy. You know better, everyone else is a simplistic moron.

At this point, blowing things up in Russia would just give Putin the excuse he needs to move heavy forces into Ukraine. The Turks may have been talked to, but, why would they want to antagonize Russia now? Maybe if Turkey is allied with the Crimean Tatars, that would gain sympathy, but is sympathy alone worth it to Turkey?

A bigger problem now is that the entire Ukrainian security apparatus is heavily infested with pro-Russians, if not out-and-out spies at higher levels. Probably every post of significance outside of the military was occupied by a Yanukovych cockroach, and even much of the military is compromised. It’s pretty hard to rebuild quickly almost from scratch. Kiev can try to bring in military from central and western Ukraine, but then they have to be careful those forces are not TOO vindictive, as that again brings Russia in, full force.

On the other hand, there may be no way for Ukraine to ultimately keep its territory without enticing Russia into a full scale attack / occupation, and fighting a long war of attrition. I believe that war could be won, but as I’ve posted elsewhere, IMO it could cost Ukraine somewhere in the neighborhood of half a million dead on their side, and a devastated country. (It might be even worse, as the added aspect of a civil war vs. some of their own seems to be clearer now.)

Half a million dead is a horrifying figure, but is much lower than the price Ukraine paid in WW2, only to end up subjugated to and purged by Russia.


I was walking all alone thru a side show
With passion and pain on each side.
Something inside me was calling
For a chance to stay alive.

At the time I didn’t know what was calling
As my head was buried in grief.
Today I heard what was crying.
My FREEDOM calling me

(Refrain):
And we all make our choices
Like a blind man feels his way,
And the choice I’ve made is simple:
Passion over pain.

When I got to the end of the side show
And looked back to where I had been,
My eyes filled with teardrops of loneliness
For the ones who will never be free

(Refrain)

I thought of the children in the side show
As they wandered around so confused.
Some day they’ll make their decision
But which one will they choose?

(Refrain)

“Choices” by Uriah Heep (K. Hensley)
