Ukraine On The Verge Of Civil War?   Leave a comment

You know, the more I read about the worsening situation in Ukraine at present, the more I can’t help think that this could get very ugly, very quickly…why?

  • The potential is there for the Ukraine to split into two almost very homogeneous areas, one pro-European in the western Ukraine, one pro-Russian in the eastern Ukraine and as we’ve seen in another former European country back in the 1990’s, those divisions can get very nasty in a heartbeat
  • Recent EU calls for the Ukraine to basically decide “either Europe or Russia” have exacerbated that by essentially forcing Ukrainian leaders to make a decision that really has no long-term good in it; if they turn to Russia, they risk alienating European leaders…on the other hand, if they turn to Europe, don’t be surprised if Russia were to cut the gas pipes off
  • Unfortunately, turning to support the pro-European factions in the Ukraine is troublesome because if certain reports are to be believed, a good number of those leaders are one or two steps removed from being outright fascists

All-in-all, there’s a lot that can spiral Ukraine into civil war…and we’ve all seen over time where those regional wars can lead to.
