    On a positive note, it must be generating some good ideas for Red Alert 4! A crazy Russian dictator who dreams of the USSR and being the next Stalin, taking over Europe...

    On the other hand...the crowds did depose a democratically elected leader/government and certainly don't have overwhelming support from the rest of the nation - a bit tricky.

    I'd have thought a negotiated partitioning would be the optimal outcome (though unlikely)

    Not sure that's a strictly accurate analysis. He was elected. Whether it was democratic is up for question - many have said the election suffered from a large amount of irregularities (voter fraud, intimidation etc...). Not to mention, locking up the opposition after he got in under charges that wouldn't have stuck in any other sensible country. All classic despotic behaviours.

    Polls in the country put the support for the protest actions at > 55% last I checked.

    A negotiated partitioning would be against the wishes of the people too - last week Gallup ran a poll which had around 60% of the population of Crimea wanting to remain a part of Ukraine, and not Russia.

    Every cloud eh?

    Whilst that would be an awesome game. I'd quite like there to be no bloodshed in the lead up to the making of it

    Russians fired them in response to a column of 300 Ukrainian troops without weapons wanting their army base back and had come to negotiate joint guarding of the site. They are effectively threatening to kill unarmed negotiators which in this case would be tantamount to murder rather then casualties of war. :/

    On the other hand, Russia is perhaps all that stands between stability in the Ukraine and descent into a civil war which, looking at the body count in Syria, is not a good prospect for anyone's interests but especially a country which shares a large border.

    And don't get me started on Ban Ki-Moon and the UN - he's useless as well. A glove puppet would do a better job than him. And the UN is impotent, useless. Useless.
