This video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROTwyP5no08

gives some great commentary on the media's presentation of Russian "interference" in Ukraine. You may recognize the audio leak towards the second half of the video (13:48 for the lazy) . It circulated in mainstream press about the use of the F-word, however I have had a hard time finding many news outlets who talk about the US's involvement in a coup.

Russia already had troops is the Ukraine, there are Russian air and navy bases in the Ukraine. I think the troops are from assets already stationed in the Ukraine, not brought in from Russia.

The Simpsons has and always will be my favorite show of all time. But this shit in Ukraine is once in a lifetime. I personally have never seen a revolution. And I fucking wish these \ people all the best. The government is always only out for itself. It's the same in every country. Putin can go fuck himself. Even Russian Hockey is bullshit.

Mutually assured destruction when/if other nations step in. Looks like we should start saving bottlecaps.

Embarrassing for the west who can't keep their promises of protection they made for getting the UKR nukes disposed of.

I'm sure everyone but the craziest are glad the Ukraine didn't keep their warheads at this moment. Whether they admit it or not.

I would just negotiate a careful surrender of the Crimea, or turn it into an autonomous area... I don't envy Putin or the West, this is a fiasco they have no good way to untangle without loosing face, so they have no way of untangling it without damaging their pathetic political standing. So, in their very small minds, they have no way out.

Hopefully none of the pinheads make it worse.

The hypocrisy always gets to me on stuff like this. The west has intervened with revolutions and civil uprisings numerous times. Especially in the past decade, even when we have no legitimate reason too other than global politics. Russia does have a legitimate reason, as it has military bases there and it is of strategic importance to protect their nations underbelly. There are also huge Russian populations there that identify with Russia over the west who deserves protection and representation. Putin most likely saw some of the hawks in west trying to take advantage of the chaos in Ukraine. buy buying out Ukrainian politicians. As politicians are generally scum that values personal benefit over the needs of their people, this wouldn't be too hard.

Anyway, my thoughts go out to those in Ukraine and Russia over this. Hopefully, things end peacefully.
