    clearly the only two choices are a glorious life of freedom and wealth under Putin's protection or a miserable life of poverty and affliction under a western-style democracy.

    It goes without saying that the only people who could be interested in a responsible government that doesn't steal from them are neo-nazi radicals.

      ...are the oligarchs on both sides. The working class in Western Ukraine are about to be crushed by austerity, while the working class in Crimea is about to get even more plutocratic corruption. Putin ain't no saint. Neither are Merkel and company.

      The oligarchs in Western Ukraine might have it worse, because once the far right elements get ginned up and start blaming "the other" for their economic problems, things may get ugly.

      The Grand Bargain must be stopped at all costs to protect the 99%.
