In some regions, people celebrating, everyone on streets. Kharkiv situation fluid.

Uptick expected in braided hairdo's, Tymoshenko legally free.

Documents showing "black" accounts. Payments to traffic police. Hundreds of thousands of dollars received from "investors".
Purchases of sniper rifles. Special "employees". Big payments, small payments. Going about a decade back.

Folders they tried to burn. Info on "dangerous" people. Journalists, MP's, civil activists.

flexflint: They're inside the palace I think; they're finding documents in the river, a hovercraft, a 60's classic car (?), ... . Anyone have a stream of that camera?

Ceaușescu, Saddam, Mubarak, Gaddafi, others; meet Yanukovych.


Can't believe Mubarak is still alive.

Here's the BBC stream with tweets: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-26302572

And this is the difference between christianity, and islam.

A priest will stand in front of certain doom and call for peace.

A Imam will sit in a mosque and call for war.

Amazing really how similar these dictator stories are.

Oh. This is what I wake up to??

Someone is snivellling like a little Yanukovych about the ooo scary warlike muslims for the 8,978,342,855,826,205th time.

Doesn't being afraid every minute of every day for an entire decade because you have been ORDERED to be afraid by the teevee box get even the slightest bit boring?

What an outstandingly courageous Real Jesus-AmericanTM you must be.

Grand_Moff_Joseph: Marcus Aurelius: Rolling back the constitution to 2004 and getting Tymoshenko out of prison is the most they can hope for at this point.

Don't say that too loud, or the GOP will want to roll ours back to version 1.0


Was that the one written by God?

zimbomba63: Deep Contact: Poland, who used cavalry to attack German tanks. Still can't figure that one out.

Don't try, it didn't happen.


It was in a book by Sven Hassel, a German tank soldier, who described this.

So, what have we learned.

By and large, the rule of men couldn't run a dry cleaners, let alone mass governance, because there's always somebody willing to throw somebody else under a bus if it mans they can get More™.


No matter what flavor of bread and circuses or blatant oppression you hand out, you can only sh*t on so many people for  so long and then they're going to dismantles your ass.


It can't happen here.

As far as I know, Poland had fast anti-tank units on the base of cavalry. Cavalry regiments were armed with anti-tank weapons (mostly anti-tank rifles and light anti-tank guns) - an idea was to have fast units able to quickly move to the point where armors attack and resist them.

Their anti-tank weaponry wasn't heavy enough to punch through the German armor, but at least it wasn't, you know, pikes and sabres.

I can't be sure that it was the cavalry described, of course, but that's what I've read when I was reading about pre-war development of anti-tank weapons and tactics.
