Ukraine is on FIRE and weapons may decide the conflict.



May 03, 2014 – Comments (5) | RELATED TICKERS: RGR , ATK.DL , UTX

Ukrainian forces and Pro-Russian Terrorists are engaged in fierce battles this weekend and the death toll is rising on both sides.

Gun manufacturer's though see it as a way to show off their technology. Gun manufacturer's like Sturm & Ruger have been supplying US forces with many weapons since the world wars of the 20th century.

This century though,  more and more what is needed by the armies of the world are weapons to counter cheap worldwide use of ak47 by armed rebels like those pro-Russians in Ukraine.

To deal with these terrorists the gun manufacturer's are touting weapons that can liquidate the enemy from afar. The ak47 meanwhile is only meant for close quarter combat and leaves the terrorists at a disadvantage against the more highly advanced weapons that now exist. 

 Do these nations really want democracy? They don't know what democracy is!

Dear Sir or Madam,

I'm citizen of Ukraine, native from East of Ukraine, I'm not pro-Russian or pro-Western. It is much more complicated when white-black. To call all rebels "terrorists" isn't right.

Well why did it take decades to finally protest being part of the Ukraine?  And why should the collapse of a totally corrupt leader stir it? Sorry this is coming from outside the Ukraine since only Russia really benefited by having such a corrupt leader in power to begin with.  Putin isn't fooling anyone.

Putin had a chance to be part of the European Community, but his narcissitic greed for power has now jeopardized that. Europe will not tolerate any invasion by Russia.  And any invasion by Russia will just cause tremendous hardship on Russian citizens.  All for the greed of one narcissist.

Maybe in the past economically and military strategic importance.

Queen Victoria's army in Crimea 14:55 - 27:55


Maybe at the present economically and military strategic importance.


At present if Eastern and Southern Ukraine succeed in joining Russia like Crimea all sea routes by Sea of Azov (via Crimea and Eastern Ukraine) and Black Sea (via Southern Ukraine) will be blocked thus, crippling Ukraine's economic trade by sea.

That really doesn't explain such a delay.  The time to have stayed with Russia was back in the 1990s when the Union Collapsed.  So why the urgency now if not being stirred up by Russian agent provocateurs?  These ethnic Russians were so happy with the former corrupt leadership that literally stole billions from the country?

Putin has such concern over the welfare of Ukrainians yet he supports a leader who gassed his own people?  I surely hope the leaders of the world are not so stupid as to see who is really behind the riots in Eastern Ukraine.

Russia actually had a chance to evnetually become a part of NATO, instead Putin prefers to be an enemy of it.  Russia can't win this fight, militarily or economically in the long run.  The end result will be to have Russia mainly isolated and her people  to keep on suffering because of the arrogance of its leaders.
