    I've read all about this and it only reinforces my disdain for US and Russian governments.

    The only positive that could come out of this is the girls from Pussy Riot die.

    Does this just mean the Cold War never really ended? I'm too disinterested to read about any of this because I'm pretty sure it will just reaffirm my cynicism. I'm rooting for the men and women in Ukraine to increase their political freedom and overall quality of life. Go that team!

    it never started and it never ended. it was just a name for the overarching narrative in foreign policy during the Pax Americana. today, global superpowers continue to only engage in proxy wars, which was basically the goal of NATO.

    Russia will continue to be a meddlesome second-tier power until they run out of oil and stupid minerals buried in Siberia. they would love to steal parts of the Ukraine to increase their exploitation of natural resources and add a few more seconds to their relevancy clock.

    Just as Michael Jackson's death was a gift to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the entire government of Iran -- Western media was heavily focused on the burgeoning revolution in Iran throughout June of 2009 until the day he MJ was announced dead, immediately after which the whole revolution and the regime's brutal response to it was reduced to a half page story on page 12 in papers -- this missing plane is one the best things that Vladimir Putin could have asked for right now.

    Today Mark Zuckerberg posted on Facebook that he doesn't agree with the government invading our privacy. Bill Gates gave an interview stating the US government is one of the best in the world.

    Fuck both these cunts.

    Wait, so the "revolution" in Iran that was being championed by social media dorks only ended because MJ died? And Putin is having his way because Malaysia apparently has outdated air traffic control equipment?

    The US fucking invaded Iraq on bad intelligence and Putin wants a shitty piece of Ukraine and deserves isolation from the West?!?

    Fucking hell bring me the heads of Pussy Riot.

    i'm surprised at how en pointe John Kerry has been through this whole situation, honestly

    also, you can ignore the pageview whoring headline on this piece, but i spent a good deal of time today reading about the East Congo crisis that has been going on without much notice (by me included): http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2014/03/russ-feingold-congo-104535.html#.UyJpKfmwKzc

    linked to from that article is one of the more badass websites i can remember. one that tactically breaks down African guerilla fighting: http://www.africandefence.net/analysis-how-m23-was-rolled-back/

    Just when you think it is impossible to more ashamed about being an American something like what is taking place in Ferguson raises that shame significantly.

    The fact that no high ranking official has come out to condemn this. The fact that our President hasn't come out and condemned this shows how far off the rails this country has gotten.

    Ferguson is basically a small sample of the police state / Robocop future we'll all be living under in the next decade.

    None of my Missouri redneck family have said a word about this on facebook, where they jabber constantly about anything & everything else. I dunno what's worse; silence, or what they'd actually say about it.

    Ouch, there's a lot of problems with this. Is this making the rounds on social media? It would be really unfortunate if this kind of thing detracted from all the legitimate arguments people are making right now about police force and racism.
