After an emergency cabinet meeting, Canada recalled its ambassador to Moscow, ceased preparations for the upcoming G8 Summit in Sochi, Russia and urged that international monitors go to Ukraine to monitor the rapidly deteriorating situation.

The caretaker government installed in Kyiv after the pro-Russian president Viktor Yanukovych was toppled last Saturday, could do nothing to prevent the sudden takeover of the Crimean Peninsula by Russian troops. It spent Saturday feebly considering whether to convene parliament on Sunday to discuss whether it should mobilize troops to try to take back what Russia had apparently occupied without a shot being fired.

Despite Washington’s deep concern over developments in Ukraine, it was not obvious what it can do to change the situation there, short of sending troops.

As Russia is a nuclear power and has tens of thousands of troops based near the Ukrainian border, the possibility of any U.S. or NATO military action is deemed extremely unlikely.

How can they 'seize' a city yet be met by rapturous crowds?

Did Paris consider itself 'seized' from Germany by the Americans?

Well, I suppose if Western Ukes populated Paris, then.....

See where I'm going with this?

I doubt it.

Clear Dharma is but not Martix. I think it was Martix who got mad at CD or Chobry?

Hmm... if you seized a woman in bed she would probably be rapturous ;)

I see what you mean though.

Did you see in the news that the Russians have a warship 200 miles off the coast of Florida?! OMG! It's in Cuba. Do they have a base in Cuba? So do you think they're invading Cuba or is it just a stopping point on their way to Florida??

It wasn't, Martix has been posting messages supporting the protestors, Chobry may have got angry with CD.

The government opposition in Ukraine made a major mistake in ignoring the agreement signed last week. This all could have then been solved with elections in may. They then compounded the problem by sacking constitutional judges, passing laws on minority languages, repealing laws on nazism language all on the first day. These actions where never inclusive and where concessions to the far right but at the cost of the Russian south. With piss poor short sighted politicians like this Ukraine was always going to be a disaster.
