    There was so much handwriting on the walls about America, Europe, and Russia, that it looked like NYC subways in the bad old days soon to be the city’s future under Red Bill

    This isn’t a done deal yet. The opposition political parties are now pushing Yanukovich with another huge demonstration this Sunday just like the 100,000 people that showed up last Sunday. The majority of Ukrainians want to be part of Europe, not a part of Russia as they already know what that means, and they are making their voices heard. Putin is unlikely to win this one, without a really big carrot, because his stick just isn’t very intimidating.

    Simply put, “balance of power” and “spheres of influence” are just as real today_______Once upon a time European leaders were quite comfortable grappling with those ideas. Then they lost those skills. They will learn yet again that if they do not go out and shape the world, others will shape the world for them and that world may not be to their liking.
