    Like a case of correctly staying the fuck out of something that does not concern the US.

    What the hell do you think would be accomplished by issuing loud condemnations of the Kiev Government's actions in trying to retake territory seized unlawfully by Russia other than to strengthen Putin? And how on earth does it advance America's interests, or help the people of the Ukraine, to strengthen Putin?

    Sorry, this is not a big issue. It is a simple case of shit happens when you go to war. Making the sort of public statements you are talking about would not save a single life, and would merely make an already terrible situation worse. Silence on the part of the US is by far the best option.

      basically it was the US and PNAC people who instigated to whole thing. At least that is how a lot of Europeans see and they feel confirmed with McCain, Brennan(CIA), Nuland and Biden etc. visiting Kiev. And that Hunter Biden and one of Kerry's money bundlers are now on the board of the biggest privat Ukrainian Gascompany did not help to diminish the frustration about the US.

    •  Two things wrong with your statement (12+ / 0-)
       Kiev Government's actions in trying to retake territory seized unlawfully by Russia
      Russia didn't seize the Donbas. Those are Ukrainians dying at the hands of other Ukrainians.
         It's important to point out that the rebels of the Donbas were peaceful until Kiev decided to burn people alive in Odessa.
      Sorry, this is not a big issue. It is a simple case of shit happens when you go to war.
      This is your bigger mistake. It is a big issue, and shit doesn't just happen in war. People make decisions that get other people killed.
        Kiev decided to go to war. Not Putin.
