Time to storm some Russian consulates it seems

Someone said the other day they tried to use this headline. I hope it was this submitter and somebody else didn't just steal their joke.

Ukraine is weak!
 
2014-02-28 02:52:47 AM  
Welp, that didn't take long.

I expect Putin to get all putiny about this whole ordeal by Sunday.

So Putin sent in Russian forces to blockade airports and means to leave the country?  Am I understanding this correctly?
 
2014-02-28 02:58:42 AM  
A man called Vladimir told Reuters he was a volunteer helping the group, though he said he did not know where they came from.

He was shirtless and riding a tiger.

/Wait, I think I've confused Putin and He-Man again.

In Soviet Union, airport blockades Russians.

He totally waited until the Olympics was over to do this, too.

That's totally hilarious.

Resident gun nut here.

Is it just me or are every single one of those AK-74's (yes 74) being carried with no magazine in the rifle?

No you're not understanding it correctly.  The airport is operating normally.
 
2014-02-28 03:04:48 AM  
Don't worry folks, it's OK, Putin would never order the Russian military to invade a sovereign nation that used to be a Soviet satellite, in order to lay claim by Russia to a small border region that is ethnically different from the Western-leaning majority of the nation.

Oh I'm sorry, Georgia, did you have something to add?

TFA was poorly worded. Russian didn't send in its own military, they provided weapons to a small group of local idiots and told them to storm the airport and parliament while flying the Russian flag.

Looks that way to me.

This happens here in Indiana. Every now and then, the town is patrolled by hundreds of stony faced armed men in riot gear and gas masks with no insignias and brandishing automatic rifles who will not speak of their identities or intentions. They just stand around and look intimidating for a few days, and then they disappear as mysteriously and quickly as they arrived.
Is this not normal?

sounds like things could get real sketchy real fast.

Someone on Twitter said one of the armed men looked like he was carrying an AK-103.

FTA Meanwhile, in a further challenge to Kiev, Mr Yanukovich is preparing to give a press conference on Friday, after resurfacing in Russia on Thursday, asserting that he is still Ukraine's lawful president.


Sigh.

I think the Ukraine used to have a whole bunch of nukes back in the Cold War days.
I'm sure they were all accounted for.

The rifle intimidates. Keeping the magazines in their pounches minimizes accidents. 'scuze me, "accidents".

Now that's not true. The U.N. can make plans to schedule a phone call to discuss calling a meeting to vote on a resolution to form a committee to draft a strongly worded letter.

Which Russia will veto.

Which is fairly smart. Putin is a thug, but if he's behind this he's being a smart thug.

If the Ukraine can get its shiat together fast enough, they can petition for EU or even NATO membership. Russia would get noisy about it, but they'd be in a bind then.

If that's actually true and not just an excuse, that is very interesting.

I was not aware that rifle existed.  So, they replaced the AK47 with a smaller more accurate caliber in the AK74, only to put out a new rifle based on the 74 that's in the OLD caliber of the 47 but not actually a 47.

The More You Knooooowww!!!
