    Default Ukraine protests government.

    Ukraine protests against goverment decision to not be a member of the EU.

    Can't say I blame them. Inclusion in the EU means you get to own those awesomesauce 1 and 2 Euro coins, which contain a couple grams of nickel each.

    Whereas in soviet russia, money owns you.

    I don't want them to join the EU because that'll make my vacationing more expensive.

    I'm constantly shocked by how much patience riot police have; no way I could just stand there as someone was trying to kick me, hit me, light me on fire, etc.

    What would you do instead? The second they start shooting people, you'll have the same result as Syria. Instead of having stuff thrown at you, you'd have bullets flying at you. I'm actually really impressed that so far only three people have died. Hopefully Europeans are better at working out their problems than the dirty savages in Egypt, Syria, Yemen, and Libya.

    the us has no right to lecture another government about respecting the rights of its citizens. hypocrites...

    but good on the people of ukraine for fighting for what they believe in.

    Holy shit - I was amazed at the discipline of the officers in the face of the aggression of the crowd.

    The last vid where they were shooting the protestors was in front of their Parliament.

    As much as I knock Rob Anders for things like sleeping during work, things are still really good in Canada. As long as the government does not rock the petrodollar boat too much, he can sleep as much as he wants.

    It has been suggested that the only reason that the Ukraine went to Putin instead of the EU is because Putin offered a sweet deal on cheap natural gas. IE: If Rob Anders had the ability to sell me a few hundred billion dollars worth of natural gas at a 3% discount, I'd buy him lunch. I do prefer a government that has little influence over the markets however, as that just reeks of corruption (happens all the time in China and Russia however)

    I can see the point of going with Putin. Cheaper petroleum, water and food is a huge reason to go with one side over the other. Will Californians who have no water defect or seek refugee status in Canada? I don't want them here, lol.

    Afterall, you can't eat gold (or nickel) - And if you are starving and cold, food and natural gas is more important. IMO: They are not ready for entry into the EU, they would probably be crushed just like Greece.

    On the flipside: Latvia went to the EU just recently. Time may tell which side was better for the people.

    Now with tanks.



    Bad night last night. Escalation continues.

    Nine protestors dead, several police badly burned and injured by bricks.

    Police now have live round Kalashnikovs. Military is at the outskirts of the city.



    How do you take down a million dollar tank with $100 worth of gasoline? Starve it of oxygen and roast it of course.

    ZenOps, western allied bankers overthrew the Russian monarch and installed the Bolsheviks leading to 10 million Ukranians dying of famine. Its said that cannibalism was rif at that time.
    Do you really think those same banking power that run the west and Nato, have the best interest for Ukraine?

    Also do you know how billions in trade Ukraine will lose to Russia if was to open to the E.U. and what prospects it will get from the broke EU in return?
