We have more people dieing from heroin overdoses than traffic accidents. (people wondered why Afghanistan was so important)
Is the CIA running low on funds again ? Cocaine wasn't so bad, and we never had to watch our money working in South America.
I lost count on how many countries we have brought our new freedom to in the last few years.

Once that word spreads you know the crowds will get themselves into a frenzy couple that with the Heavy handed crackdown this just makes for a bad situation quickly heading downhill even faster.

This is going to be a wild night.

There is four bodies in the Mykhailivsky Cathedral and injured protersters. Streets from Cathedral has been blocked to hamper transportations of the injured ones..
Seems like tomorrow will tell final amounts and most likely it will be ugly numbers

This is just sick

Titushky thugs dispersed on Mykhaylivska square, armed with fire weapons. All traffic to independence square and out has been blocked, metro is shut too.

The Ambassador "directing traffic" needs at least to be taken with a grain of salt until indisputably verified ...I mean given that the Russians tapped the convo with the State Dept. Official and released it to stir up drama.

There is an internal struggle within Ukraine between East/West sympathies ..there is likely just TONS of propaganda and agitprop going around.

They say that there is a traffic jam which is 200 km long.. Quite chaotic.
We don´t know what Ambassor does there.. maybe trying to get home.. who knows

Klitcchko have just come back from "meeting" with Yanukovych. The only what the President want is that protestors leave from Maidan.

All hospitals are overcrowded, there are now more than a thousand wounded.

Well its so late here that i really need to go..
