I know, I remember the first 650 people who got sentenced where trialed where in fact members of the muslim brotherhood. And they did commit horrible crimes. ( not worth the dead penalty, but each to his own i guess ).

but this recent wave of death penalty people where trialed because the " supported " Mursi, so because they got the death penalty because they had an opinion in favor of Mursi. That's just ***d up.

And I also find that very strange not to here more about this from the international community.

Barack Obama: US, EU continue working on sectoral sanctions

Not really much else to say, as the article is pretty short. Seems like they're already working on sanctions against entire Russian economic sectors.


Not a good sign...

The insinuation its a multi party response is also not good.

Why do we have to mark people in such a black and white manner? Why does it have to be because you disagree with one side you Have to agree with the other?

Most people are more in the grey area, but that's just me/

Has there been a change in media laws since the change over?

Absent that global affairs are heating up all over so its possible there is either not enough reporters to go around to cover them all or there is just not enough time in the day for media to give reports on them.

Goes to the point I've been talking about with Ukraine's upcoming elections.

www.bloomberg.com... ukraine-s-vote-seen-at-risk-as-violence-flares-up-in-east.html



Ukraine’s presidential election is driving another rift between Russia, the European Union and the U.S. as Vladimir Putin’s government questions the legitimacy of the vote.

Hours after Ukraine’s deadliest day since President Viktor Yanukovych was ousted in February, Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, pointed to the violence as proof that proceeding with the vote planned for May 25 is “absurd.” U.S. President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the success of the election will decide whether the U.S. and the European Union impose further sanctions on Russia for its actions in Ukraine.

Discord over the election is pushing the sides further apart. A failed ballot would highlight the central government’s difficulties in asserting control as unrest spreads from the easternmost regions to the south.

“There is little doubt that the legitimacy of the elections on May 25 will be questioned and most probably not accepted by Moscow and many ethnic Russians in eastern and southern Ukraine,” Lilit Gevorgyan, senior economist at IHS Global Insight in London, said by e-mail. “Ukraine is entering a critical phase in the crisis, where chances of so-called humanitarian intervention by Russia are increasingly high.”

“There are Russian saboteurs in Ukraine,” says Russian State Duma Deputy


Russian State Duma Deputy Ilya Ponomarev has accused the Kremlin of creating a prologue to civil war, on a territory where civilians do not seek to be part of Russia.

The only deputy of the Russian State Duma who voted against the accession of Crimea to Russia, Ilya Ponomarev, has declared that there are Russian saboteurs present in Ukraine. The deputy wrote about this after visiting Ukraine, in his blog in “Echo Moskvy”.

“There is no large-scale intervention, but there are special forces (of the Main Intelligence Directorate?) and subversive groups that are carrying out the task of directing and organizing the forces of the so-called ‘self-defence’,” said Ilya Ponomarev.

This is the Russian politician who voted against Russian actions in Crimea.

I would think we will be seeing actions taken against him if true.
