LewDux: s with the interests of big capital and empire."

Why would I ever doubt the veracity and integrity of an unabashed ultra-nationalist Russian? I mean, he made a movie, and you CANT LIE in movies. It's against the law, like on the internet.

hardinparamedic: ShawnDoc: Magorn: Saying cops are only USING non-lethal armaments is one thing. Saying they are not CARRYING anything stronger, especially when there is unrest teetering on the fine line between protest and revolution? That's maybe not so smart

Its pretty normal from what I've seen in other parts of the world.  Police lines get overrun, you don't want people getting their hands on live ammunition and guns.  If it comes to the point where lethal rounds are required, new troops/police get sent in that are different from the normal crowd control and riot response police.

Given the way the Ukrainians and former Soviet republics tend to act with unruly protesters, they're not going to worry about arming the foot police with lethal rounds. They'll have BMPs and T-72s down the street with plenty of led in their machine guns.

Is that part of the Ukrainian light infantry?

Next riot...the cops WILL be carrying live ammo. Much to the surprise of the protesters who rush them.

Well, depending on how you use them, beanbags and rubber bullets can be pretty lethal too, Mister President.
