|“Americans will not support those who seek independence in order to
replace a far-off tyranny with a local despotism. They will not aid those who promote a
suicidal nationalism based upon ethnic hatred.”
Due to size the introductory article about EuroMaidan events (aka EuroMaidan101 ) was moved to a separate page.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Ukrainian population, the real victim of this mess. Harsh times wait them ahead indeed. Iraq and Libya are good examples of what can happen in worst case.
EuroMaidan was yet another color revolution financed (via US controlled NGO and oligarchs (such as Poroshenko, Kolomoyski)). At the end of the day they destroyed the country. There is now extremly cruel and unnecessary civil war in South East. during which a lot people are kileld a lot of propety blown up and economic damage is tens of billions of dollars, far more the Yanukovich and his thugs would be be able to speal from Ukranian people during the same period. There was also terrble, nazy style Odessa Massacre of May 2, 2014 which confirms Bush senior warning about the danger of "a suicidal nationalism based upon ethnic hatred."
The key problem with it is that there’s no endgame for the USA and EU, nor is there any benefit to “winning” Ukraine for the West. After West installed junta crimes in Odessa and Mariupol, the insurgency in Ukraine has fuel for years to run, because even if Kiev takes it militarily, that's only be only temporary: now there is enough hatred in South East toward West Ukraine to fiel gerulla war, and during guerilla war population became polirised even more. It can well last a generation.
Denying Ukraine to Russia is more harmful than beneficial. It is very harmful for Russian economics (and suicidal for Ukrainian economics). It's very harmful for Russia as Ukraine of a part of Russian culture. No matter what Galicia nationalists think (And Galicia was not a part of Ukraine proper for the most of known history; it's more part of Austria then Ukraine). Ukraine was supposed to be a bridge, keeping Russia oriented towards Europe instead of Asia. Now this bridge was destroyed by USA neocons…
It also speaks about the desperation amongst western elites about their current economic decline. The post 2008 train wreck is still in motion and it is hard to see where it completely stops. Wars are about resources and this includes not only WWI and WWII but EuroMaidan color revolution, which is a war only by other name.
As cheap energy and raw materials are becoming more scarce western countries start operating completely outside the framework of international law. In part this is due to the rise of the “3rd world” (e.g. China, India and many other developing states) which now became serious competitors to West for energy. This was one of the reasons that so much manufacturing was off-shored by the West. They saw the writing on the wall. But somehow their plans did not work out and we are seeing that anti-China vector became more visible in the USA policy.
The only fair solution for the Ukrainian situation might be referendum in the South-East. It is a rational solution and appears to be fair. But there are no decent players in this game to conduct it impartially. While I do not agree with painting the West as a conniving devil, it came close. In any case it is absolutely clear by now -- there are no knights in shining armor in this conflict. Both West and Russia are neoliberal players, with just different agendas and different level of cultural attachment to the region. It is also clear that most of the victims are common people of Ukraine as well as all the countries directly or indirectly involved, who are being manipulated by the mainstream media into mutual distrust: the first victim in any war is always truth. My heart goes out to the people of Ukrainian South East who became pawns of the political games of the West and who are now killed by Kiev regime with impunity.

|It's easy to pretend to be a great strategist,
while sitting on the top of the hill,
at the safe distance from the battle in the valley
"Plunderers of the world, when nothing remains on the lands to which they have laid waste by wanton thievery, they search out across the seas. The wealth of another region excites their greed; and if it is weak, their lust for power.
Nothing from the rising to the setting of the sun is enough for them. Among all others only they are compelled to attack the poor as well as the rich. Robbery, rape, and slaughter they falsely call empire; and where they create a desolate wasteland, they call it peace."
