    And after protesters had shot police officers. He was certainly corrupt, but lets not forget that the current parliament is the same exact parliament that passed all of "his" tyrannical laws. It's all the exact same people.

    If knowledge is power and power corrupts, does that mean that knowledge corrupts?

      Against our own government with the same level of violence shown by Ukrainian protesters my guess is we'd have FAR more than a couple hundred dead protesters.  Hell, police in our own country were cracking skulls and arresting massive numbers of peaceful protesters during OWS.  Feels weird lecturing other countries on how to handle protests given our own track record.
