Ukraine....This could be NASTY!

The evident fact is that the people of this country are massively unhappy with the fraud and cheating documented in many areas in there vote for as new President.

The fact-behind-the-fact that concerns me is the apparent willingness of the Russians to bail into the situation with soldiers (some dressed as Ukranian soldiers), equipment, and to help foment the reaction to an estimated crowd of up to 1 million souls!

General strikes, university shut downs, etc. are underway.

This could get very dirty and quickly as I am sure the Russian backed candidate (on whose behalf the cheating was done) wants this quashed before it gets worse. It does seem to me, however, that goal has already been lost.

I sincerely hope these people, so very thirsty for Democracy, are not the victims now of massive military/police/thugs operations bloodying the entire event.
