    and these guys are goons.

    But, I still don't see how what's going on in the Ukraine is still any different than separatist movements all over the world.

    The goons are always the provocateurs.

    Usually organized crime.

    It's going to be very hard to isolate Russia on this issue. Russia is doing nothing that a half dozen other big countries (including the USA) haven't also done in the last decade or so.

    There are two kinds of people in this world. The kind who divide the world into two kinds of people, and the kind who don't.

    •  Putinism (8+ / 0-)

      The Separatists are nothing more than common thugs with a nationalistic agenda (see American right-wing militia movement)

      •  Do you know what the separatists were (0+ / 0-)

        like in Kosovo or Bosnia or anywhere else?

        Organized crime, mafia, mass murderers.

        Normal people get along well, as all the Yugoslavs did. But then thugs like Milosevic, Izebtgovic, Tudjman, round up their criminals and set them to work, whether we're talking about Ratko Mladic, Naser Oric or Agim Ceku.

        It's the same story over and over again.

        How does the USA complain about Donetsk when this is what the UN Rapporteur had to say about our ally Israel this morning?

        Falk, who is Jewish, described Israeli policies as bearing "unacceptable characteristics of colonialism, apartheid and ethnic cleansing".
