Looks like the civil war is getting underway . . .

This "Ukraine Today" thread over at Taleworlds forums pretty much sums it up. I join in on about page 8 and ask a couple questions. Several of the posters there are actually living IN Ukraine, if not participating in the revolt. In particular check out the various links with pics and videos and stuff.

This post by some guy called "Trueten" is on page 9 or so. The photo spread pretty well sums it up.

The photo link in this post on page 9 or so is pretty stunning.

Fucking bizarre . . . looks like something from a Fallout game, or a Mad Max movie.

Is this getting any coverage in Western media? I don't really watch "the news."

Another thread from my regular haunt.

Citizenry not approving of the government's pro-Russia tack.

Everyday. Enough.

Russia reclaiming her empire and the people on the barricades.

Russia has incrementally been taking steps to recover the influence that it previously had as the Soviet Union.

Sometimes by force (Georgia, Chechnya), sometimes by finance (lending money to Ukraine to gain leverage), and sometimes through use of resources (leverage over Europe via its exports of natural gas to them).

OH SHIT! The quarterback is toast!



The USA gobmint is condemning the ukrakan gobmint. I'm not sure that's a good idea w/ civil unrest brewing here as well. Rather short sighted most likely.

It's so under reported here I don't even know who is who. What's got the citizens there so worked up? Mums the word.

The BBC has a write up over what the background is on this:

President Barack Obama condemned the violence in Ukraine on Wednesday, saying that the U.S. holds the government “primarily responsible for ensuring they are handling protesters peacefully” and that “there will be consequences if people step over the line.”

“We expect the Ukrainian government to show restraint, to not resort to violence,” Obama said in Mexico. “We expect peaceful protesters to remain peaceful.”



Ukrainians have nothing to fear now.
Obama has thrown down the gauntlet and drawn a line in the sand. No one would dare cross it, now would they?

It's about whether Ukraine falls into the EU or Russian orbit. The guys messing with el Presidente are called "Euromaidan" after all.

Quote:
According to December 2013 polls (by three different pollsters) between 45% and 50% of Ukrainians supported Euromaidan, while between 42% and 50% opposed it.[105][106][107] The biggest support for the protest can be found in Kiev (about 75%) and western Ukraine (more than 80%).[105][108] Among Euromaidan protesters, 55% are from the west of the country, with 24% from central Ukraine and 21% from the east.[109]


Not so clearcut as you might think from the BBC.

That said the G didnt help themselves by beating the $hit out of a bunch of peaceful protesters. Still, I have no doubt at all that the West is shitstirring there just as much as Pooty-Poot though, indeed Miss "Fuck the EU" sounded rather like she was picking who would be Ukraine's next el Presidente.
