Why does not Ukraine itself manage the pipelines running through...?

No reason to invite foreign EU bureaucrats in.

It is very good that ukrainkas let other more intelligent people manage "difficult tasks" since we all know how dumb these peasants are. Important question is can these flea infested dogs pay proper fee to their superiors. Kholzniks might take booze but EU officials wont.

Will you two dullards offer your brown hole as a fee to those experts. If there are Swedes among them, you might hit a hole in one.

Perhaps Idiot Poet would like to explain why the suggestion that Ukraine itself should manage a pipeline running through Ukraine constitutes "stirring the pot"? Is there some reason they should not exercise sovereignty in their own nation? With a pipeline running through Canada who would you expect to...?

More important; will he ever become smart enough to be allowed to enter kindergarten?

Uther-- you know very well tht you were not boosting Ukraine but using the pipline as a weapon to take a swipe at the EU which you seem to despise (after all they support NATO and you hate NATO). That constitutes stirring.

Pro: The question is not whether Luky will ever graduate kindergarten but rather will he ever beome smart enough to be allowed to ENTER kindergarten?

I oppose the expansion of the EU. I support nations like Ukraine protecting their own national sovereignty. That is the same thing idiot. Would you support Washington surrendering its independence to join some undemocratic multinational Free Trade Area of the Americas bureaucracy? Of course not. But that is exactly what the EU is.

So is democracy in a European context somehow less important to you? It is ok for the next Khmelnytsky to hand over power to the next imperial overlord? Kyiv should manage Ukraine's affairs... not Brussels.

Free trade areas are naturally protectionist... and political unions undemocratic... just a 21st century remake of the same old empire idea... to join the EU is about like joining the Austro-Hungarian Empire... or the Ottoman Turks.
