Putin will finish what Stalin did not.  Stalin killed millions in the Ukraine, Putin has already sent Russian special forces to start the killing with the Russian tanks close behind to teach the Ukraine what a real genocide looks like if they do not bow down to the new Czar Putin.

Yes. Putin is on the verge of killing millions of Ukranians. I'm glad we're starting off with some level-headed, rational commentary.

They supposedly had a revolution 10 years ago too, and look how well that's worked out.

Western Ukraine is positively roiling. And Yanukovitch is meeting with the opposition instead of jailing them. Might we be listening to the winds of chaaaa-aaa-aaange?

Good news farkers, increases in the supply of mail order wives will certainly have a positive effect on the market.

Bad news hot Ukrainian women, ...

I'll take crib notes from anyone willing to give them.  What I know is that the Ukraine seems (at least half of it) to not want to be a Russian proxy state, the princess is still imprisoned and that Ukrainian and Estonian women are hot.

I hope this is the beginning of the end of Putin's fledgling empire.

Pfff, Ukraine. Who cares about that when there's a liberal woman running for governor in Texas, or something something Justin Bieber/Kim Cardashian?

Oh, wait, yeah, it's Superbowl season isn't It? Who has time for real news, we need more stories about a football game!

A ukraine is a type of water bird that lives on the black sea. Similar to a heron.

A Ukrainian is someone that hunts them for a living.

Putin can want to get the band back together all he wants.  he will NOT get Ukraine back.  They are too well armed and too big to just be sucked back up by mother russia and they are still a wee bit bitter about that whole Forced famine thing Stalin pulled

True, if Ukraine joins the EU, Russia will close the borders with Ukraine to keep the flood of Eastern Europeans and cheap products out.

Ukraine gets all it's natural gas from Russia, so they will probably freeze to death.

Magorn:

He can get the eastern half of it if civil war breaks out and the country fractures along ethnic lines, and that's all he really cares about. The Black Sea ports in the Crimea are populated by ethnic Russians, and they are also the majority down the eastern half of the country leading right on down to Sevastopol. That's what this whole thing has really been over. Ethnic Ukrainians want their country back and see joining with the EU as a way to do that. Ethnic Russians want to keep their spoils of war and their ties to "Rodina" and see cooperation with Moscow as the only way to do that.

As for the police saying they aren't carrying live ammo, I call BS. I've seen plenty of pictures on other sites where doctors are pulling jacketed "wadcutters" out of people. It may be target ammo, but pump enough of them into someone and they'll still kill them.
