    this is the same argument used by the right wing that obama was supporting the muslim brotherhood when he finally backed the egyptian opposition. let me make this very simple for you:

    please show some evidence that the u.s. is backing the neo-nazis, rather than just opposing yanukovych.

    •  Sounds like John McCain and Syria (0+ / 0-)

      Calling for militarily aiding the opposition even though an important component was al qaeda.  Here, the US is supporting the opposition.  An important component of which is Svoboda.

        and the muslim brotherhood was an important component of the egyptian opposition, therefore the republicans were right about obama!

        •  Which is kind of funny since (0+ / 0-)

          the MB was overthrown in a military coup.  Which the U.S. tolerated.

          While the U.S. has put in great efforts to overthrow the elected government in Ukraine.

            this gets more embarrassing and surreal by the moment. yeah, elected, and then threw the opposition in jail. and built a palace while his people suffered because the government wasn't governing.

            and yeah, the muslim brotherhood was overthrown, after it attempted to quash democracy. here's a novel thought: maybe it's okay to criticize autocrats no matter their alignment on the political spectrum- mubarak, muslim brotherhood, and military.
