Why Ukraine Matters.

It is another global flash-point between a corrupt establishment and their miserable populace. Will it become another Egypt, where a popular movement was overtaken by the worst group on the scene? In every recent uprising that I can think of, the anti-state movement turned violent against the minority citizens.  I don't know enough details about the makeup of the opposition, but on you-tube I've seen videos of fascist nuts spouting antisemitic hatred - this is typical of the region and why my family left the USSR so many years ago.  My bet is that once the opposition movement obtains more power, more violence will come to the locals and both of the Jews left in Ukraine will become popular scapegoats.

On the other hand, my heart does go out to those miserable wretches railing against their corrupt politicians. I too am tired of being fleeced at every opportunity by thieves in government offices. After all, that was the reason for TEA rallies here, and I am proud to have participated in them.   

As our own economic prospects worsen, and it will get much worse here, similar protests will form. It will not be the Soros fueled useful idiots that called themselves OWS, and it will not be the polite TEA protesters.  We should all be prepared, because only those who are better organized will direct this parade.
