Iraq went badly for awhile, until we got their new Army trained and instituted a counterinsurgency strategy.
Hopefully, we will leave Afghanistan.
In the first round of elections neither candidate had enough of the vote to win, and Yanukovych rigged the second round of voting which prompted governmental procedure including a no-confidence vote, a Supreme Court Ruling, and electoral legal amendments, to allow for a third round of voting. There is nothing unconstitutional about it, except for the part where Yanukovych rigged the election and then ignored the no-confidence vote of the Chamber of Ministers.
But I guess in your world rigging an election is Constitutional, but holding a re-vote for said election is Unconstitutional. Wow.
Unless of course, in your world rigging the elections (which happened on both sides) is unconstitutional, yet to hold the third round of elections PROHIBITED by the constitution is constitutional...
We had a 12:1 kill ratio over the insurgents. Going by that, it's obvious that the bad guys were the ones that overloaded their asses.Originally Posted by Elena
Because the US bit more than it can chew.
You have 0 evidence for voter fraud on the part of the Yushchenko campaign, I on the other hand have tape recordings proving that the Yanukovich campaign did indeed rig the elections:Unless of course, in your world rigging the elections (which happened on both sides)
So in your assbackwards universe the Supreme Court should have ruled to keep the results of the rigged election? Sorry but Viktor Yanukovych rigged the elections, then he ignored the no-confidence vote of the Chamber of Ministers and refused to step down, then the Supreme Court ruled that the election results were rigged and thus null and void, then the Ukrainian Parliament passed legislation and a Constitutional Amendment allowing for a third round of voting. Only on your planet could this possibly be construed as an unconstitutional election.is unconstitutional, yet to hold the third round of elections PROHIBITED by the constitution is constitutional...
