Obviously the government of Ukraine is insufficient and needs Russian assistance. It is none of the West's business to send any armed forces to Ukraine. Just let them sort it out.

If America lost texas in a similar fashion what would we do? what would we want ? At the end of the day this has absolutely fuck -all to do with our nation (the u.s.) and we should really be more worried about our own domestic issues. April 16, 2014 Reply td fisk For quite a long time it has been taught that communism is essentially dead, so there aren't many people who continue to study communism. As such, people can't see what this crises is really about. I've studied communism and all it's forms (liberal, liberal progressive, social democrat, labor parties, labor unions, socialism, Marxism, Maoism and several more) for over 40 years. This included infiltration of many of the communist factions in the US. In general, what we have today are two distinct forms of communism in conflict. The Western form is a candy-coated communism moving slowly toward overt communism. Putin represents the iron fist of communism, we was a totally devoted KGB Stalinist communist. The Ukraine is split between the two forms. If you look close you will even see pro-West Ukrainians with the communist flag. Infighting is a very common trait with communism/socialism factions. This can be seen during the Russian Revolution onward. They turn on their own with as much vigor as they do their enemies, the Chinese Cultural Revolution shows how sever that can be. People think we won the Cold War. The Cold War isn't over, it's changed dramatically into a psychological war. Communism and uncontrolled capitalism have learned how to cooperate in ways that benefit both. Controlling the worker and consumer consolidates power for both. The majority of Russians are as communist as they've always been, but the Ukrainians got a taste of sugar-coated Western communism and wants to stay in the candy store. So don't be fooled by the media, this is a conflict between communists.Thomas April 16, 2014 Reply Liberater hopefully true Marxism can thrive in Donetsk April 16, 2014 Reply Element Grom Quba How many people were killed by the us government for the last 20 years?How many people were killed by the Russian government over the last 20 years?You naively believe that the U.S. has a truly democratic government? Presidents in the USA puts the "Economic Elite". Personally I find it strange that in a country in which live more than three hundred million people in the presidential elections remain the two candidates who share the votes of almost 50 by 50 percent, and the fate of the presidency is solved "last urn with 2000 votes"? At least that's strange. So why do only 2 candidates, why not three or are not five? I looked in the U.S. two lines of conducting foreign policy: one more aggressive(military) other less aggressive(passive). Judging by recent events, and not only Ukrainian crisis, but also the Syrian issue, the next President of the United States(as well as U.S. foreign policy) is not exactly passive means now is the policy of Obama. Knowing US policy, knowing that the US economy will burst soon finally, she just needed a major war in order to support the dollar(I mean the sale of weapons), and knowing the events preceding the invasion of Iraq(September 11), the most optimal is the explosion of a nuclear bomb, even a suitable city – Detroit(bankrupt), and the accusations against Russia " Hello world war 3, and most Americans will believe in granted them the truth. Well, Russia is in contrast to the United States is able to fight with the enemies equal, and possibly more powerful, especially on its territory. (Sory? mb i have bad translater) gl. April 16, 2014 Reply Hunter Carroll Keep reading on, or die tonight at exactly 12:42. This is based on a TRUE STORY! Once there was a baby named Mary. Her mother couldn't take all the crying, so she decided it was time for her to go so she buried her in the backyard, after she buried her she could still hear Mary's crying, so she dug her back up and stabbed her one time in the arm, and buried her again. Mary cried harder, but a few hours later it stopped, at exactly 12:42, Mary died she bleed to death. Now her spirit haunts the world. When your sleeping she stabs you in the arm and watched you bleed to death, and that is how she got the name "bloody Mary" this true is a true story of her. She wants everyone to feel her pain that she felt. Apparently, if you re-post this isn't fake. Apparently, if you copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minuets you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either get kissed or asked out, if you brake this chain you will see a little dead girl in your room tonight in the next 53 minuets someone will say I love you or I'm sorry to the other twelve comments you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. But if you brake this chain you die at exactly 12:42 tonight by Bloody Mary. Don't believe me? You'll see not TALKING April 16, 2014 Reply Brockschmidt Brad People should have the ability to choose if they wish to be part of Ukraine, Russia, or Independent. But 2,000 people taking over a building does not mean the rest of the 4.4 million people of Donesk Oblast should follow. An independant vote admiistered by the U.N. should allow the people to choose. I worry that both sides are going to say that they are the victim. We are talking about 4.4 million lives that will be affected. What if it fails, will the pro-russian side that looses stop peacefully? If it passes, will the pro-ukrianian side be treated fairly. Allow the people to choose, but i fear that it wont be honest election. April 17, 2014 Reply HeroicLarvy Bunch of spoiled brats. This is exactly the same as Alaska wanting to be apart of Canada.

Other 90% don`t want to be a part of Russia and very unhappy this is happening… But it is not Kiev, and they just scared to death to even go outside with Ukrainian symbols. They know that it will be very bloody, considering Russian troops, criminals and police which support not people but terrorists. In case of violence police will stay and look at the criminals beating people to death. The same thing was at Maidan, but there where Ukrainians who were ready to die for freedom and independence of Ukraine. Here -they have no reason to die for anything. They are not happy in Ukraine (never were). But they don`t want to be a part of Russia as well. It is a no win situation for them. And I feel sorry for all the normal people of Eastern Ukraine, and don`t know what the solutions is..except of Putin kills himself under the pressure of conscience and guilt and Ukraine will grow strong and show the East that there are a reason to live and there are a light in the end of the tunnel.

May 2, 2015 Reply Наше Tv Go American home go go home American May 17, 2015 Reply evofd It seems a bit hypocritical to me that the reason the separatists started this fight was how they were treated in the past. And that they wanted to be closer to Russia. But Yanukovych was the President for the last 4 years prior to the civil unrest that rocked the entire country. He was removed thru protests by the people of Ukraine to start anew. But the separatists could not wait for change and now want the support of the very country that Yanukovych was propped up by (Russia). Also, the separatists call Kiev a fascist regime. Which is also inconsistent with the basic definition of what fascism truly is. In fact, Russia, and the complete strong armed tactics of the Russian media machine (lack of freedom of speech) and the military and the propaganda that claims patriotism by the Putin regime actually fits more accurately the definition of Fascism. This effort by the people of eastern Ukraine only proves that with the right message, anyone can be brainwashed into believing they are fighting tyranny.
