I must be a little slow on the uptake, as I don't view this as a protest for democracy. Yanukovich is elected democratically in the Ukraine. He wants to strike a business deal with Russia and favorable to the Ukraine because 2/3rds of the Ukraine speaks Russian and it has been historically attached to Russia. There are a bunch of EURO wannabes in the NW Ukraine who, with the help of $5 billion from the USA want to appoint their own leadership undemocratically through violence. Should they deal with Russia or fiat currency Reserve Bankers. Here in the USA, we recently gave the bankers trillions of dollars to help us out of a recession/depression and now the banks have lots of money but we don't. Ukraine sounds like "fresh meat for banker," if you ask me, and I admit that I have not one good word for Wall Street and Federal Reserve bankers. We stirred up Iraq and who benefitted? We stirred up Syria and who benefitted? We stirred up Libya and who benefitted? We stirred up Haiti and who benefitted? Is there a common message here? Ponder the issues, don't be misled by a stage managed media. Russia offers Ukraine a $15 billion bailout and discount natural gas and the EURO offers what?
