    Re: Ukraine crisis: Opposition asserts authority in Kiev

    not any expert on Ukraine, but I would think having statuses of Lenin, after Yanukovich fled , would be problematic for any new gov't.

    update: U.S. warns Putin against Ukraine grab amid break-up fears | Reuters ( much more at link)

    In a mark of passions dividing Ukrainians along a historic faultline between Russian and Ukrainian cultures, local television in Kerch, in eastern Crimea,
    showed a crowd hauling down the blue-and-yellow Ukrainian flag in front of the town hall and hoisting the white, blue and red Russian tricolor.

    The only wild card here is Russia. If Yanukovych continues this 'coup' rhetoric, he might be attempting to set the stage to legitimize Russian involvement, militarily, economic, or otherwise (by claiming the current government as rogue and maintaining his claim to the legitimate government). If Yanukovych stops this rhetoric, then I think Ukraine can breath a sigh of relief.

    I see you haven't done the history re-cap than.
    They are doing just fine in giving the leadership from one group of thieves to another one, otherwise yeah they are fine.

    Corruption is an inheritance from the Soviet era that will take a long time to root out. I don't discount it presence among the winners as well as the losers. But in this case the winners can point to a path upward for free people. The losers could not.

    As I said earlier, I seem to have a better understanding of events there than you do. I doubt you're qualified to assess my work.

    You showed and keep showing complete ignorance of Ukrainian politics/history already in two threads Jack.
    Wherever you work, I really hope it doesn't involve analyzing the situation in "your area" i.e Ukraine. lol

    You're just a sore loser. I was right. You were wrong.

    I knew enough to know the regime was doomed. You did not.
