Good development. Great to see the government acting proactively on that front. Without gas, Russia has no fangs to bare and intimidate other nations.
Agree, NW. Slovakia announced earlier today that they will be supplying Ukraine. Ukraine has fossil fuel resources of its own and considerable potential to develop solar, as well.
Oooo…that’s fantastic. Thanks for the update, Bob.

Being an original baby boomer and a child of the ’60s, an insider to the rock ‘n’ roll generation, I used to rave about the 1930s as one of my favorite eras, stylistically – the clothes, everything Art Deco, etc. I’d act like it was a part of antiquity that I had found and discovered a love for … until one day a same-age friend said, “Oh, 1930. Sixteen years before we were born.”
Kind of ruined the whole damned thing, ya know?
Hahahahahahahaha….I heart you so mud, Ms. J’OB! Your life experiences and anecdotes are just freaking awesome.
You’ll hear them all about a million times and get crazy after a while if you see them one more time, but thanks anyway! I heart you so mud, too. :)
I saw “I heart you so mud, too” and thought, huh?
Darn it, autocorrect.
Technology fail. Humor abounds. :)
Knew you could take my pointing it out (although if it were me, I would have blamed “the wine”!!). :)
Well, JOB, you really were onto something. I think the most beautiful buildings were built in the 30’s in that wonderful art deco style. And there was such an elegance in the clothes, if you had the money to get the best. Of course, the vast majority of women were struggling through the Depression and wore ugly homemade house dresses. Still, art deco styling makes you feel elegant just looking at it. And there was great, great music in those years.
All of that! Still love it all. :)

Watching a DW-TV (Germany) report on the taking of OSCE observers. If the Russians wanted to piss off the Germans, they’ve done it.

Good I was hoping there would be an intense reaction to this kidnapping. This pissing at the world on Russia’s part has got to end.

NYT Says #SpecialWar is it for now: For Russia, Negatives Seem to Outweigh Positives of an Invasion cc @20committee nyti.ms/1tOavoR— David Levine (@davidelevine1) April 28, 2014
The author of this article substantially misses how Putin’s actions have galvanized Ukrainians, even throughout the East and South, against him.
Agree with the author that if Putin invades, the costs to him and Russia are going to be very high including the fact that he will need to deploy several hundred thousand Russian troops to control whatever territory he occupies. The consequences to those troops and their families will make them think their Afghanistan occupation was a vacation. Ukrainians (and all the expats who’d return to Ukraine to fight the occupation would) cause ceaseless Russian casualties. Remember, highly skilled members of Israel’s current and former IDF are Ukrainian and several have already indicated they are prepared to return and fight.
The separatists have no capacity to sustain their activities and will likely become demotivated if doesn’t invade.
The only open issue at the moment is how many people are going to die, because it’s improbable Tzar Vlad is going to come to begin observing the rule of law and abandon his illegal occupation of Crimea and his illegal incursions and provocations in other regions of Ukraine.

Y’know, I love this story, and am clearly happy that this man overcame his stubbornness to finally enroll and get the life-saving surgery he needed. But to then claim that your surviving has nothing to do with politics is disingenuous at best, and just plain selfish at worst. Sure, you say, you’ll try to sign up some friends in similar circumstances, but none of that is due to any political party, right, mr. i-go-it-alone?
Good thing, Obamacare will survive just fine with or without its benefactors’ appreciation.
Due to space constraints on Twitter, this tweet is probably as clear as mud (sorry, no room for Pres Obama), but check this out:
“Obama signed a law on aid to Ukraine this month that includes a clause that allows the U.S. to go after assets of Russian officials and their allies who are deemed complicit in ‘significant corruption.’
‘This is a declaration of war by the Obama administration on the current governing Russian elite,’ Ariel Cohen, senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation, a Washington-based research group, said by phone from New York. ‘There will be a lot of people potentially targeted.’
One possible weapon in this new battle is Dmitry Firtash, 48, the billionaire Ukrainian and major Raiffeisen client who was arrested in Vienna last month on U.S. bribery charges, according to Mark Galeotti, a Russian organized crime expert at New York University who advises regulators on money laundering.”

Those who say President Obama is opaque don’t listen to him. He clearly stated that we will still have arrows in our quiver when sanctions are announced.
And here’s a quote from Brenner:

WHEN A TYRANT RULES…HIS INSANITY IS UNCONTROLLABLE AND HIS DESIRE TO HAVE IT ALL REACHES FAR BEYOND THE TOOLBOX HE CARRIES TO GET THERE…TRANSLATED…VLAD DOES NOT CARE…HE’S GOING FOR IT!
It can be argued that US foreign policy since the end of the Civil War has been primarily been aimed at economics and finance. Sometimes we’re on the side of the angels, sometimes “he may be a son of a bitch, but he’s our son of a bitch”. But the US has always had a sophisticated appreciation that hard and soft power go together. That Russia, 20 years after the fall of the Soviet Union, is still stuck in a militaristic mindset which appreciates only hard power shows that it is nowhere near being able to join the world system.
Well said. But I cringed during your last sentence, thinking of GWB and the neo-cons in our country. Thank God for President Obama.

Simon is the type of journalist Pulitzer Prizes should be awarded.
“While Russian media continue to spread hype about the Ukrainian government cutting off Crimea’s water supply, evidence mounts that this is no more than a media provocation aimed to cover the incompetence of officials from the self-proclaimed ‘Republic of Crimea.’
According to a UNN interview with Yuriy Odarchenko, chairman of the Kherson Regional State Administration, water is not reaching Crimea though the North Crimean Canal due to the incompetence of professionals who ‘seized’ the Crimean part of the facilities.”

State visit of US President Barack H. Obama
In my wildest dreams I never ever thought that there would ever be other than a white person as President of the United States. When then Sen Obama won the democratic nomination – I thought the election had been given to the GOP – oh me of little faith. At that time I did not know the man at all – but so many knew the man and his message. As November 2008 drew closer, I caught onto the hope – and every time I see it written – President Barack H Obama – that hope grows stronger.

*** MUST WATCH *** Video of PBO’s presser alongside President Aquino.
By the way, you’ll love watching President Obama’s slap upside the head to Faux News’ Ed Henry in response to his thinly veiled insult of the President’s foreign policy as weak, but couching it as a a request for him to respond to “critics.” The President’s response is as brilliant as you might expect. That section starts at 28:56.
Unfortunately, the microphone goes out intermittently on this one. Hopefully there’s a better source of the video out there. Really, you want to see this.
Dudette, this might be a better video.
Excellent! Thanks JER! :-)
The section I referred to above starts at 30:45 in this one.
I love it!
That ‘blink’, as PBO was evaluating the specifically lousy question aimed at him, that ‘blink’ nearly stopped my heart! Yes, Sir, Mr. President, this is why YOU are the leader of the free world. Thank you.
HaHa! I surmise it is an integral part of the Obama Administration International News Conference Doctrine, to call out the idiots in the American press, for all the world to see! And I approve!
Ed Henry doesn’t deserve to be on this trip. He is a piece of crap. He tried to stand up to POTUS face and throw that Fox news crap at POTUS and POTUS slap it down.
Anniebella – none of them deserve to be there – they should be left to swim home
