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


you mean restore the constitution?
Yeah that would be terrible, all those personal liberties and rights.

Yanukovych and the Ukrainian government began to operate what they called "The Operation": They would select opposition members and then threaten to kill them if they signed the so-called peace treaty. Four months later they started another operation which they called "The Other Operation". In this racket they selected another opposition member and threatened not to kill him if he didn't sign. One month later they hit upon "The Other Other Operation". In this the opposition member was threatened that if he didn't sign, they would kill him. This, for the Yanukovych, was the turning point.

/VIKTOR??

Unlike in all other political systems, there things stay the same for centuries

Strength is not a "system".

I am not responsible for your reading comprehension being limited to that which you already believe or the narrow scope it resides in.

I think what he wants is for you need to stick to single-word answers that he can easily dismiss with shallow strawmen. For example I could say Anarchism, and I could probably think of the first two or three things I'm sure he'd say about that.

I've been thinking about this all day, and I've concluded that I feel for the people that are continuing to protest.

I know I'm supposed to assume the people still pushing for change are Nazis or whatever, but I had to put myself in their shoes.

If our President was responsible for the presence of snipers on the roof of buildings in DC, shooting unarmed protesters, until 50+ were dead...I'd have a hard time waiting up to ten months to get rid of him. Wouldn't you?

The peace agreement should have included the immediate resignation of the current Ukrainian President and a bar onhim holding office in Ukraine again, in return for protection out of the country. It also should have included guaranteed international election oversight, and a blocking of Russian influence. After what Russia did to fan these flames, they damn well don't deserve a say in what happens now.

How would you like a country practically invading and corrupting yours to the point where you risked your life to protest, and then have that same country demand a say in the compromise you fought for? fark that.

I understand the Russian bullshiat situation that makes abrupt change in that part of the world a risk. But isn't that even MORE of an incentive to deal with this situation right now? If Putin's already on the phone with Obama, telling Obama that he wants to have a "say" in the peace process...after everything Putin did to fark up Ukraine...wouldn't it be good to handle things as quickly as possible, and shut Putin out as much as we can help the Ukrainians do? Giving Putin up to 10 months to use the current Ukrainian administration as puppets, especially now that Russia really sees what's on the line, seems very foolish indeed.

So yes, I feel for the Ukrainians continuing to protest. Tey surely know they're risking losing international support, and they're going ahead anyway. That's brave.

Bored as hell, recheckin' the thread
Just what I thought: It got delet-ed
But I gotta thank the mods for stiflin' the holla,
Even though mine wasn't impropa

Got a secret message, amidst the plinkin'
So I spit another rhyme, cuz it got me thinkin'
So I took a couple screens of what was so naughty
It was all just so funny had me screamin' "O LAWDY"

Went to the desk laughing like mad
Had to share my story because it was so rad
Couldn't let it go, felt it'd be remiss
There's a moral to this story and it's something like this:
   S'what happens talkin' shi*,

Wouldn't you know?
I made a sweet comment
But it had to go.

I almost jumped up,
and started to shout..
But I got a secret message
That put the fire out.

Cuz the threads on Fark are always hard
Hope I don't get hammered for playing this card
Wouldn't be mad cuz it'd be legit
Cuz that's what happens when you start talkin' shiat*.

/seriously, though, no hammer would be tight like a tiger.

I'd bet money on "civil war" at this point, and that it will be a multi-year conflict.

I hope there isnt a civil war, but at this sums up my thoughts at this point in time  25.media.tumblr.com

KellyX: Alphakronik: I have a question:

When leading an opposition group such as this, what is the advantage to the tactic of taking over a square and barricading yourselves in?

It would seem this goes against everything Sun Tsu taught in the Art of War.  Why not send rogue teams out for dismantling of specific targets in infrastructure and logistics, disrupting the communications and such of the party in power?

Why not just firebomb the parliament building and blame it on Poland?


Or sink a Ukrainian navy ship and blame it on Spain.

Restore it?  Absolutely!  First though, tell us where/when it seemingly was lost, so we know where to begin our search.

Why don't they just send Yanukovych and one of the opposition leaders into Thunderdome to see who is the winner?  I'd enjoy watching Vitali Klitschko uppercut him into outer space.

Our Ukrainian Farker had said in a recent thread that most opposition leaders wanted nothing to do with Tymoshenko since she really WAS  a crook (and issued a no compromise ..EVER manifesto from prison that did nothing to clam the violence yesterday)   so why DID they vote to free her today?


I just want her to go back to her old Princess Leia haircut.
