Our corporate media and their president Obama (hypocrite and liar) are determined to create chaos in Ukraine just like they did in Libya. To threaten Ukraine with sanctions and at the same time support overtly these Facist goons that are throwing molotov cocktails and shooting at a police force that's standing there with just shields and sticks,,,what would we have done if the demonstators on "Occupy Wall Street" behaved the same way as the Ukraine Opposition. They'd be mowed doen by our military. C'mon fellow American get informed! look at Libya, drones, NSA,demonizing Russia, even the Olympics, all that negativity by our press........

Do you even know what this conflict is about? FYI the Ukraine had the option to join with the EU a move supported by the majority of its citizens, the Old Guard ruling the country worried about losing their power wanted to align with Russia to consolidate their power. Your "Occupy Wall Street" comparison is flawed, a closer comparison would be earlier in our history when we rose up against British rule and established our own Government. Ukrainians want the ability to choose the future of their country, that's their right and they are willing to fight for it. Follow your own advice drop the right wing BS and get informed.

They're rioting in Africa.....they're starving in Spain....there's hurricanes in Florida.....and Texas needs rain! ... The whole world is festering with unhappy souls.....the French hate the Germans ... the Germans hate the Poles....Italians hate Slovakians....South Africans hate the Dutch....And Russians don't like anybody very much!!! But we can be thankful....and tranquil and proud...for man's been endowed with a mushroom shaped cloud....and we know for certain that some lovely day....Someone will set the spark OFF......And we will all be blown away!!! :-) They're rioting in Africa....there's strife in Iran....what nature doesn't do to us..........will be done by our fellow....man! The Merry Minuet, written circa late fifties to 1960 and performed by the Kingston Trio... my point? The more things change....the more they stay the same! That song could have been written just reading todays headlines alone..... but the libs want you to think....this is ALL new! Gotta have a crisis to get elected. The world is a mess and it always will be as long as there are useful idiots to do the bidding of those in power.

I have two comments. First, I have spent a fair bit of time in Eastern Ukraine. While they do speak more Russian than Ukrainian, I never met anyone I thought was pro-Russia. Every person I met was very friendly, liked Americans, and seemed to be generally pro Western. Second, we have a serious problem because Mr. Obama has already demonstrated that he will not back up his words with action. Why should Mr. Putin pay any attention at all when Mr. Obama has already been shown to be a toothless tiger?

Kind of reminds me of Hungry and Poland in 1956....Eisenhower was wise to keep us out of that
and Obama should do the same.

As much as people complain and criticize Obama, he doesn't have an agenda to
support any war that involves the USA. He stopped the Iraq fiasco , and if Aghanistan was not
in a proximity with neighboring Iran, we'd be out of there as well. The Bush administration
supported war for its profit and nothing else, and if we had the money that cost, we'd
never be in a deficit today. Unfortunately, the Republican party has cost this country
more than we have, and they gave Obama a bill for those wars the day he sat in the OVAL
office which they never paid, and were fast to blame him for it after the fact. Eisenhower
knew how profitable it was for the war machine, and as Senator, Obama voted against
the wars and its on record.

And since Obama inherited the debt Bush incurred, what has Obama done. Has he tied to pay down the debt? No. Instead he has nearly doubled the deficit to 16 trillion from 8 trillion. And counting. Obama was elected in part to lower spending from the Bush years......he was not elected to inflict the OBAMACARE debacle on the American citizens.

It's not our problem we have went to war to free countries we have spent trillions of dollars to help other countries and they still do not like us but they have no problem taking our money. The time has come in this country that we take care of our problems first plus our debt is off the wall and Obama keeps spending. Wake up America

The U.S. needs to stay out of this. Ever since Bill Clinton, we have been reducing our military. It is so small now that we are dependent on the National Guard to fight in foreign battles. If we want to protect the world we need to start the draft and build up a military force. We have fabulous military men, just many of them any more.

idiotic comment.. he's threatening the communists (aka Putin who's still stuck in corrupt Soviet style leadership) and he's supporting the west loving protesters (as well as most of Europe is).

as Obama ,Pelosi ,Reid, Feinstei, Holder.... et al tighten their collective stranglehold on American's necks......the pressure bulids right here.lpeople are people..Ukranian or American. Push them too far.....
While the Obama's rub our noses in their LAVISH lifestyle , discontent builds a head of steam that'll explode the same as with the Ukranians and...... "the poor people of Paris"
The French revolution featured Ms Antoinette's head being lopped of by a Guillotine.
Her lavish life paralled QUEENIE OBAMA'S

I'd wager that you were in the cheering section as another Nancy, wife of Saint Reagan, spent lavishly during the 1980's (as the Ron was raising taxes and the debt limit at record- breaking increments).

Well -- Madame Defarge, knitting her bags for the human heads she'd like to see go inside:
This is typical teabagger right wing propaganda. What about your idol, George Bush and all the thousands of Americans wounded or killed because of republican extremist right wing greed. Talk about living off the fat of the land. Talk about claiming how great America would be if it were a dictatorship, with him -- of course -- as the Dictator. You should come out of your country club and show a little respect for people who could buy and sell you in grace, intelligence, patriotism and leadership. Your Mitt Romney was the REAL Marie-Antoinette, who made the most insulting comments about our veterans, our elderly and all those who have kept America safe and worked to make the US the great country it is.-- you know: the 47% . If the right wing takes over, yes you'll see a revolution alright. Of course the left can't match the right in violence at the moment. But we could learn from people like those YOU support , who prefer the country club to America. Sometimes one just has to get down in the mud, where the righties love to wallow.

'Neutralslamm' will tell you that such things are only evil if done by the 'left.'

When those for whom he cheers do the same, it's just wonderful.

So; the Olympics will end badly for Putin......
At the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Ukrainian alpine skier Bogdana Matsotska, 24, said she will not take part in Friday's women's slalom due to the developments in Kiev.
"As a protest against lawless actions made toward protesters, the lack of responsibility from the side of the president and his lackey government, we refuse further performance at the 2014 Sochi Olympic Games," her father and coach, Oleg Matsotskyy, wrote in a Facebook post.
