Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject.
A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
The fact that you can't produce any other pictures of an Assistant Secretary of State passing out cookies to protesters is a sign the strength of US involvement in the installation of Yatsenyuk. If that was the usual thing that the Assistant Secretary of State did, then you could say it's no big deal. That's just what they do. But in this case it shows just how pissed off she was that Yanukovych made that decision.
Yep, it's simple to understand. Nothing hard about it. Of course someone who was put on here to spin propaganda would never agree.
Sorry Charlie! Try again.
Sorry Charlie. Try again.

Corporate Interests Behind Ukraine Putsch | Consortiumnews
"As President of the U.S.-Ukraine Business Council, Williams has access to Council cohort — David Kramer, President of Freedom House. Officially a non-governmental organization, it has been linked with overt and covert “democracy” efforts in places where the door isn’t open to American interests — a.k.a. U.S. corporations.
Freedom House, the National Endowment for Democracy and National Democratic Institute helped fund and support the Ukrainian “Orange Revolution” in 2004. Freedom House is funded directly by the U.S. Government, the National Endowment for Democracy and the U.S. Department of State.
David Kramer is a former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs and, according to his Freedom House bio page, formerly a “Senior Fellow at the Project for the New American Century.”
That puts Kramer and, by one degree of separation, Big Ag fixer Morgan Williams in the company of PNAC co-founder Robert Kagan who, as coincidence would have it, is married to Victoria “F*ck the EU” Nuland, the current Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs."

"Exclusive: The U.S. mainstream news media is reaching a new professional low point as it covers the Ukraine crisis by brazenly touting Official Washington’s propaganda themes, blatantly ignoring contrary facts and leading the American public into another geopolitical blind alley, writes Robert Parry.

We don't invade anyone without a butt load of heavy equipment- what makes you think Russia wouldn't as well?????
Crimea has not been a part of the Ukraine for centuries, in 1955 it was attached as a, now pay attention, as a semi autonomous region.
No cultural ties with the Ukraine
They has their own Parliament
Civilian population is almost 60% Russian
General sense of unease over new Ukrainian government...
95% seems high but if a majority of the other ethnic groups feel more secure with Russian than the new Ukrainian government I can see them staying home or voting to seek closer ties to Russia.
