    protesters seems kind of crappy (and propaganda like) when we do the same thing here in the good ol USA

    Fix your own backyard, then maybe you can criticize others...

      of all types.

      Sadly we are facing waves of repression.

      There needs to be a balance between an
      orderly efficient society and free expression,
      but, all sorts of stuff is now murder.

      Kiev, the state is shooting demonstrators with snipers.

      Egypt?

      Syria?

      It's a tough time all over.

      and lets not froget venezuela and argentina.

    •  If LOD could fix our police (0+ / 0-)

      state, I bet he would. If he could fix Putin's police state, I bet he would. no one can fix our or their police state, not even Obama. And as bad as ours is, I'd choose our police state to theirs. Besides there is hypocrisy in Snowden's going to Russia to criticize America for being overreaching in spying on citizens. He's in the same position there that he was in here. He can't criticize them on their territory. And they do deserve some criticism. And in addition, he cant leave.
