    Puppets do as they are demanded to do by the people who pull the strings.

    Ah, probably involves the Illuminati.

    Do you see Crimea.... now, take a look at Russia.. One thing should stand out to you almost instantly. Crimea is located right next to Russia and is tiny in comparison. If people in Crimea want to be a part of Russia so badly, WHY DON'T THEY JUST SIMPLY MOVE THERE!!!! The truth of the matter is that this whole thing is a test by Russia to see who will stand up to their military actions. They are also testing a strategy that could potentially be used again to annex other neighbors and may be watching closely to if the international community does anything about it. My fear is that if a precedent is not set here with Crimea, it may embolden Russia to try this same strategy on larger neighbors.

    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    Looks like Victoria Nuland scared the s*it out of Rinat Akhmetov at "the talk."

    That map is of the USSR though.

    Also, thanks to the efforts of many posters here, I learned that trying to influence events means you installed a government, and a friendly government is a puppet government.

    I'm glad to get such intelligence analysis of international affairs here.

    So Putin was in control of Euromaidan? DANG!!! This was straight from Euromaidan's Facebook page

    USA demands from Akhmetov and Kliuyev to rise a party revolt against Yanukovych. Sanctions otherwise
    The USA anticipates that the Regions Party fraction will support all of four demands in order to begin peaceful negotiations:
    1. To announce pre-term election of the President.
    2. To announce pre-term elections of the Parliament.
    3. To release Tymoshenko from jail and to recover her civic rights in full.
    4. To open criminal cases on all the executives of the Ministry of Interior Affairs and the Berkut, who participated in dispersals of peaceful demonstrations.

    Nuland was very precise that unfulfillment of these conditions will question any operational activities of the Metinvest and System Capital Management companies in foreign countries. The crucial moment is that the meeting was held with just Akhmetov.
