Why does everybody seem to have a problem with defining the difference between protestors and terrorists?


I would say that Maidan guys and Kiev government are terrorists and people in Slavyansk are protesters and activists

Why does everybody seem to have a problem with defining the difference between protestors and terrorists? Civilians and soldiers still don't know the difference? Kiev asked for military intervention by the UN and Russia vetoed the incursion. Now that Russia see's it is surrounded and China is under the gun they want the UN to intervene. Hmmm, the UN said the matter had already been addressed. Russia over estimate of the situation is now costing Russian their lives.

Time for some IEDs now. The local civilians of Eastern Ukraine will soon be using roadside IED to knock some sense into the highly paid mobster mercenaries attacking civilians in Slovyansk.

IEDs Improvised Explosive Devices, can cause significant brain damage to APC crews who are shooting civilians.

Kiev ex-Marxist human trafficking junta is using the Army against the People:

Ukr ainian forces must respect international standards on use of force, Amnesty International said on its website.

International standards on the use of force and firearms are clear – law enforcement officials should resort to the use of firearms only in defence against an imminent threat of death or serious injury. Heather McGill, Ukraine Researcher at Amnesty International, has said.

Russia must be Peacekeeper.

Mi-24 helicopter gunships are being used against the people of Eastern Ukraine, who simply want a Democratic vote. The unelected, violent ex-marxist junta in Kiev is using the army against the people.

The world calls on Russia to please declare a No-Fly Zone over Eastern Ukraine and patrol the skies with the Russian Air Force.

So Russia will move in air superiority and cavalry if it goes down.

So where is Obama to demand that the Kiev "government&quo t; withdraw their forces? Oh right... he only made that demand when someone who didn't want to be in NATO was in charge.

The United State Air Force are now running covert night flights along the Ukrainian/Russian border in which they are using infrared cameras to spot any suspicious crossing of the border. The flights are non-stop, in relay, and augmented by US satellites and drones. The Americans are also, on high alert, monitoring Russian military communications and codes, triangulating Russian radars as they are switched on, and using on the ground spies.


Very true

Yah , and Russia can provide 'advisors' like the US and EU constantly does. With a little help East Ukranie cannot be engulfed.

The Nazi Fascists serve the purpose of corrupt western powers. They were used to help overthrow legitimate gov't of Ukraine and now they're being used along with mercenaries to crackdown on citizens who don't want to be ruled by US and made a slave for IMF.


That's just propaganda talk
