    At least 9 dead in Kiev protests

    Kiev, Ukraine (CNN) -- "At least nine people died Tuesday in protests in Kiev, seven of them civilians and two police, authorities said.
    The casualties occurred after protesters set fire to the headquarters of the ruling Party of Regions and as violence roiled the capital for the first time in more than two weeks."

    Rest in peace, both for the police who were attempting to uphold the law, and the people who were doing what they believe is right, honestly I really hope they work things out in a peaceful manner in the very near future... but may I ask a question? and this may be a wee bit silly but I was just curious.... if you are taking part in a violent protest in which you are actively attempting to kill police, and damage property being considered a civilian seems a little... I don't know light? it kind of sounds like they were just innocent by standers who were murdered which I don't think is the case... I'm not justifying anything just.. a thought I guess :/

    I don't think the political leaders of Ukraine are anything great, but where does the money come from to afford continued protests? Do wealthy Ukrainians support the protesters? What would they gain by allying with the EU? What do you think of the US Ambassador already discussing the future leadership, by name, of an allegedly free and democratic nation?

    BBC -- "Ukrainian police are storming the main anti-government protest camp in the capital, Kiev, after months of occupation.
    Explosions are taking place, fireworks are being thrown and large fires have broken out in Independence Square, known locally as the Maidan."


    BBC News - Ukraine police storm main Kiev 'Maidan' protest camp

    Is that the end?


    Here is a LIVE broadcast from Maidan (in Ukrainian).

    These are very good questions. Unfortunately, I doubt that anyone actually knows the answers.

    ...he/she can discuss what ever she/he wants...

    Little carpet-bombing should do the trick.
