Would this be happening if there was no coup?
Everywhere the Obama administration has meddled has ended up a disaster.
“Would this be happening if there was no coup?”
Of course not. Without “coup” the whole country would be taken over, step by step, by your beloved shirtless garbage.
Some people still remember when Polish troops forced Czechs to drink beer from their boots...
My Polish friend, do you deny this?
Was that after the Munich Conference deal in 1938 when Poland took part of Czechoslovakia (upper Silesia) while Hitler was taking the Sudetenland?

It was soon after Poles killed Jesus. Come on, let’s just party like it’s 99.
Is that photo allowed?
Is that the guy....... what’s his name, that caused so much disruption the forum? Didn’t he sue Free Republic?

>self-defense forces are now burning tires to hamper the entrance of infantry vehicles from Kiev into the city.
Always with the burning tires. They make better barriers before they are burned, rather than after. It’s all party, fun and games until you have burned all your tires.
They are burning tires in celebration of earf day.
Just before Russia invaded Finland, Poland and the Baltics.
“Russia Today is Kgb Thug Putins propaganda network”
Got a link for a Western Source you approve of, that is covering events in Slovyansk in near-real time??
I’ll be glad to review it, if you do.

We came through checkpt on Kharkiv-Rostov highway, army guys were allowing al-jazeera to film them, access to city was open during operation
City center is calm, no sense that the army is about to roll on city hall.
Nobody knows how many dead in Slavyansk Doctors confirm some gunshot wounds but so far we’ve been thrown out of two hospitals and the morgue
Heading toward Slavyansk via same army checkpoint I passed this morning. Most shooting reports in NW of city, that road is reportedly shut.
RT video of Ukrainian troops attacking a checkpoint
and so it Starts—look to see full scale fighting in Hours. Russian Bomber hitting Kiev— Dogfights in the air will silence the Ukrainian Air Force. Once the troops are involved anything can and will happen.
In the meantime mac daddy is busy bowing to a Chinese robot.
Correct, it is all so complicated. Did you know that when Czechoslovakia was falling apart in March 1939, both Poland and Hungary sent troops into eastern Slovak and the Carpathian region to take over, and even had a brief battle where about 100 on each side were killed? Just in general, all countries should feel free to take part in the border shift games but then shouldn’t be surprised when it turns out different (by helping unleash the chaos)!
