vpb: I know where he can get some advice for handling the situation![news.bbcimg.co.uk image 304x171]
Captain Steroid: This is turning into a nightmare. :-(
DetrimentalScience: and the west is too weak to step in
vpb: He used to be much cooler.
Isitoveryet: DetrimentalScience: and the west is too weak to step indon't you think the EU should step in WAY before the U.S. starts knocking down fences to invade someones back yard?
DetrimentalScience: He also just sacked the head of the army. Rumors are because the army chief refused to crack down on protestors. This is going to get MUCH MUCH worse soon. He has the tacit approval of Russia and the west is too weak to step in. The crackdown coming soon will be quick and brutal and as a human being it saddens me to no end.
JorgiX: They should just have a boxing match for the presidency.

DontMakeMeComeBackThere: Short threadjack:Hey, all you guys out there who whined about the U.S. being just as bad, or worse than Russia when you had to go stand in a fenced-in area to protest the Republican/Democratic convention? Yeah, go fark yourselves.Threadjack over.
TheShavingofOccam123: It's Europe versus Russia. Almost the Cold War battle our countries all longed for but now it's satellite conflict. I'm betting on Russia. It looks like Europe won't gain a toe-hold in Asia.
DetrimentalScience: Usually the EU is considered part of the west; not just the USA. Where it gets murky is the former eastern bloc states that are now part of the EU.Also, was just reading he declared the protests terrorists and under anti-terrorist law the enforcers have carte blanche to do what they wish. Arrest people without reason, invade homes, use force, use the military to supress rebellion etc.

FarkedOver: Are people here actively cheering on Svoboda yet?
Bit'O'Gristle: Sadly, he's going to roll the apc's in, and start squishing the peasants who apparently don't like his iron fist rule. Sad, but it looks like lots are going to die. Just come to America people. Our rights are eroding, but, you generally don't have to worry about getting squished by a tank for protesting. Unless youre at kent state, or black. Bad plan then.
Twilight Farkle: BBC reporting armed forces head Gen. Volodymyr Zamana has been dismissed. Replacement is Adm. Yuriy Ilyin. EU pondering sanctions.
FarkedOver: I have no problem with cracking down on nationalistic protestors. Stamp out fascism before it takes root.
