“For as long as the plutocrats/oligarchs own/control the media, no light for cure for what ails the world will be reported to have been seen at the end of the tunnel for the next 1000 years. This "misguided free media" will not report what ails the world and what needs to be done to fix it, and the polls and statistics this media reports will favor the above named for whatever concerns their own interests.
What to do? I pray, even though I know it's a placebo.”

“I believe the root of the problem to be "other" and 'apart" from what you and I think it is. We, the west, missed a great opportunity to establish good, friendly relations with Russia after the fall of Communism. Yet, for reasons I still do not fully understand, the west remained antagonistic and unfriendly towards the new democratic Russia. Had we acted differently and more prudently, we could have had Russia on our side to help solve many conflicts around the globe today. Is it possible the big armament industries of the world stand much to lose, and they have so much clout with big governments, that adversaries, real or imagined, are very profitable, but peace don't pay THEIR bills. The IMF already sees opportunity in the Ukrainian disaster. Now they will "help" under their own terms, and at the end, they will profit richly from other peoples' suffering.
Big business-men, and men of big business, shape many of the laws and political agenda favorable to them in most countries of the world today. That IS a fact.!
And why do we blame Putin for doing what is best for his country.?
You and I both want to do what is best for our country.! Do WE always do it the wright way.? Oh, and democracy? it is in the eye of the...”

“If the people truly desire democracy, it's a BIG mistake to overthrow unlawfully a democratically elected government, no matter how incompetent, -recent events in Egypt is a perfect example. If a democratically elected government commits an impeachable offense, the law must be in place to remove/change it democratically. Any other way spells T.R.O.U.B.L. People who have lived under oppressive regimes for generations, fail quite easily to understand the true essence/power of democracy.
Could it be it's a learning process.?”

“"If a democratically elected government commits an impeachable offense, the law must be in place to remove/change it democratically."

Peter, that is the crux of the problem. You are thinking in terms of western government standards. They do not apply here. As soon as Yanukovych was elected the first thing he moved to do was give himself more power. That combined with the fact that thru corruption he was making everyone in his government party rich off money robbed from the people led to a situation that he was not going to be impeached or leave just because the people wanted him out. Look at Putin, he has absolute power over the Kremlin. Do you really think there would be a snowball's chance that there is anything that he could do that would allow for him to be impeached and removed from office?? It is not like the U.S. government where every time you have a Democrat president half of the Republicans spend their entire time looking for "impeachable" offenses.”

“Moral arguments are as good as the will/power to carry them through. When France invaded Iraq all the moral arguments of the whole world did nothing to stop the invasion.
