KIEV, Ukraine To Viktor Yushchenko, the man at the heart of Ukraines Orange Revolution a decade ago, March 2014 looks a lot like August 1939. Europe, once again, is at war. But Europe is also, once again, refusing to realize it and react.
Yushchenko, the former Ukrainian president who has spent much of his political life at odds with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and incurred his wrath, says there should not be any doubt about what is going on: Putins Russia has been waging economic and information war on his country for years. It has now added a territorial war in seizing Crimea. Instead of reacting: Europe has paused.
Putin will not pause, he said. This pause, not to bring Ukraine deeper into the European community, Putin will use this. This is harvest time for Putin.
Yushchenko just a decade ago was almost a messianic leader here, not so much attracting voters as worshipers. Americans will remember him primarily as the man who survived an apparent assassination attempt by dioxin poisoning, then rose to power on the shoulders of massive protests against a brazenly stolen election.

What’s he worried about? Obama will simply draw a red line and that will stop Putin cold in his tracks. /sarc
Same rabble rousers, different day.
Don’t worry, El-Presidente will meet with Putin then come back and declare “Peace in our time”.
Am I right Jen Psaki? Huh? Up high!
May or may not find this kinda funny:
Dont worry, El-Presidente will meet with Putin then come back and declare Peace in our time.
Allow me to warn Viktor Yushchenko that Baraq Obama will do nothing to stop (or even slow down) Vladimir Putin. In addition, reckless statements made by Obama will further weaken America’s position and actually embolden Putin to act.
izzat fer real?......................and to think they believe we are the stupid people...................
Paul Craig Roberts, Lew Rockwell, etc. are idiots who would be happy to sit back and let their hero Putin take over all of Eastern Europe just like his Soviet heroes. Not everyone who understands that Putin is a global threat is a Neo-con.
Don’t forget all those Nazis in Venezuela trying to oust the Cubans and their puppet Maduro.
It may not stop the Russian tanks in the end, but it might help rally the people to the point that Putin would have second thoughts--now if our govt would just shut up...
All the old players need to just go away, they are all corrupt to the core, they are not the answer for a truly free Ukraine.
..can’t argue with that—just looking at present realities...
