Syria is over? Good cause Ukraine is heating back up. Rebel leader says there was a coup attempt!

Breaking nearly a week of silence, Igor Plotnitsky, leader of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People's Republic, claimed that former interior minister Igor Kornet "tried to seize power by force".
Kornet's followers seem to be calling the shots now, with reports his men have arrested the local prosecutor, a Plotnitsky ally, and continue to have the local television station surrounded.
Separatist leadership has been plagued by infighting.
Several high-profile commanders have been killed in the region in suspicious circumstances in what was widely viewed as power struggle.
Dozens of armed people in combat fatigues have deployed to main administrative buildings in Luhansk, a major city in rebel-controlled territories in eastern Ukraine, in a sign of a split in the rebel leadership.
Residents of Luhansk, capital of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People's Republic (LNR), saw unidentified armed men blocking access to downtown streets on Tuesday morning, according to local media and a resident of the city.
Story here. 

I don't want to!  I don't want to wade into the mess that is Ukraine because quite honestly I don't see ANYONE I should be cheering for.

Do I cheer for the Russians?  Conventional wisdom says that they have sparked an internal revolution. 

Do I cheer for the Ukrainian govt?  No way in hell.  I don't support Nazis.  No way, no fucking how. 

Do I cheer for rampant corruption?  That would mean I cheer for the Ukrainian govt that has Nazi Brigades fighting for them IN ADDITION to being corrupt beyond belief!

So let me tell ya where I'm at.

I don't care about Ukraine.  In my view its a relic of Hillary's failed State Dept attempt to do a color revolution that spiraled out of control and threatened to destroy the work that had been done to make Europe united and a contributing member of the world community...speaking with ONE voice.

My ideal solution would be for the US to simply get out of the way, let the Europeans and Russians come to some type of agreement/settlement of the issue and for the US to start a new tract with the Russians to put the Middle East back in its cage.

My solution has much chance of being a thing as a drop of water on heated steel in the middle of the desert on a bright sunny day.

So even though I DON'T WANT to follow the madness that is Ukraine, I think I'm gonna have to.

Stay tuned for the drama.  "As the world turns" ain't got nothing on real life Ukraine.
