    Re: Ukraine in Flames

    Check that.....Obama now Threatens Consequences. The MS Media also has Articles up that Obama is outraged over the photos and the attacks on the protestors.


    Obama Threatens 'Consequences' for Violence in Ukraine

    President Obama today condemned the violence occurring in Ukraine and warned there would be "consequences" if the brutality continues.

    "The United States condemns in the strongest terms the violence that's taking place. And we have been deeply engaged with our European partners as well as the Ukrainian government and the opposition to try to ensure that that violence ends," the president said shortly after he arrived here for the North American Leaders Summit.

    Then Hagel says the Ukrainian government must answer for the violence.


    UK's Hague says Ukrainian government must answer for violence....

    British Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Wednesday the Ukrainian government must be held accountable for violence security forces had used during protests which killed at least 26 people.

    European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton has called an emergency meeting of EU foreign ministers to discuss the deteriorating situation in Ukraine in Brussels on Thursday, at which sanctions are expected to be discussed.

    "Violence against peaceful protesters is unacceptable and the Ukrainian government should be held accountable," Hague said on Twitter. He said he would attend the Thursday meeting.....snip~

    Those protestors had better be careful, or Obama will send the IRS after them.

    To wish them well you have to wish Putin ill. Do you, or do you support him?

    He could always threaten to send his economic advisors to them. If that doesn't make them behave, then threaten to send his economic advisor, Pelosi and Holder.

    Re: Ukraine in Flames

    Update: 70 dead and over 500 wounded. The protestors have taken Police into custody. According to this they have taken City Hall.


    Medic: At least 70 protesters killed in Kiev....


    Fearing that a call for a truce was a ruse, protesters tossed firebombs and advanced upon police lines Thursday in Ukraine's embattled capital. Government snipers shot back and the almost-medieval melee that ensued left at least 70 people dead and hundreds injured, according to a protest doctor.

    Video footage on Ukrainian television showed shocking scenes Thursday of protesters being cut down by gunfire, lying on the pavement as comrades rushed to their aid. Trying to protect themselves with shields, teams of protesters carried bodies away on sheets of plastic or on planks of wood.

    Protesters were also seen leading policemen with their hands held high around the sprawling protest camp in central Kiev. Ukraine's Interior ministry says 67 police were captured in all. It was not clear how they were taken. An opposition lawmaker said they were being held in Kiev's occupied city hall.

    President Viktor Yanukovych and the opposition protesters who demand his resignation are locked in an epic battle over the identity of Ukraine, a nation of 46 million that has divided loyalties between Russia and the West. Parts of the country mostly in its western cities are in open revolt against Yanukovych's central government, while many in eastern Ukraine favor strong ties with Russia, their former Soviet ruler.

    At least 99 people have died this week in the clashes in Kiev, a sharp reversal in three months of mostly peaceful protests. Now neither side appears willing to compromise, with the opposition insisting on Yanukovych's resignation and an early election and the president apparently prepared to fight until the end.....snip~

    They showed news tonight on BBC mainstream - shocking and horrible images. The country may tear itself apart with Crimea and Donetsk will side with Russia and much of the rest want to side with Europe.
