    I feel the country and region requires something to stabilize democracy and counter Russian expansion attempts.

    I don't approve because we all watched the USA manipulate and fund the protestors behind thse events. No one has told us why. It's not about those buzzwords spun by the Mighty Wurlitzer freedom, liberty, democracy and justice. If it was, we would not have used intrigue to overthrow a democratically elected scumbag (Yanukovych). The article notes we can increase our deliveries of Liquid Natural Gas to the same pipeline that Putin fills from the other end. Could Big Energy be involved? Does a bear crap in the woods? Why hell yes. Could other Big Money like "too big to fail" banks be involved? Of course. Lots of money to be made by Corporatism. Could wars/insurrections/instability be profitable for Big Corporate and the Military Industrial Corporate Complex? Does a cat have an ass? Now Putin sent low cost gas to Ukraine and agreed to $15 billion of loans backed by bonds to a good customer with a majority shared heritage and the Mighty Wurlitzer is trying to paint him with the "Bad Guy" imagery and that is dirty pool, me buckos. The USA has been the "Bad Guy" in this scenario since day one and it appears we need to reassess the function of the Mainstream Media, the Presstitutes, the Mighty Wurlitzer and our Intelligence Agency scumbags. I say scumbags because they openly and publicly lie to the citizens we elect to monitor their activities and nobody arrests them for perjury. This issue is not really about Ukraine.

    Completely support it. In conjunction with the $15 billion on offer from the EU it will go a long way towards offsetting the distinct possibility of Russia reneging on their loan guarantees and aid package while giving a bridge to IMF support to keep Ukraine from being held at gunpoint by Russia and provide some much needed progress for the government in Kiev.

    Almost everyone who wants a tough response on Ukraine is also supportive of this sort of an aid package for the reasons others have clearly enumerated.

    *- I am thinking the overall aid, not just ours. I have heard that the total aid will equal roughly $15 Billion, most of it coming from the EU.
    It is basically to bailout Ukraine. Ukraine's economy even before all the riots was not exactly stable. I hope to see maybe some military aid not just financial aid being sent to Ukraine.

    Right, but will it *solve* Ukraine's issues? In other words, will it be akin to just catching up on bills/debts, but not address the underlying problem and they'll go right back into debt and face the same issues?

    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    No I do not approve of this.We should not involved ourselves militarily or financially in the Ukraine.
    1.We should not waste one American dollar on this.The idea that this is a loan is ****ing absurd, we will never see that money again.
    2.Any action on our part regarding the Ukraine can be seen as a act of war by Russia and therefore provoke Russia into attacking us thus drawing us into another war.
    3.American lives and money are worth more than the lives of Ukrainians.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
