Does Putin's ham-handed approach to Ukraine come from arrogance, or is he just trying to be a Bond villain?

+Luis Rivas Takeda"working democracies" ?before American government/conglomerate  intervention, you have me at a disadvantage there! I'm not aware there was of any great measure, I say so out of lack of knowledge, I'm not being sarcastic! However, things are only 'slightly better' today in S America, in democratic terms, though still with considerable problems! Some of these problems can be attributed to IMF imposed conditions, but in large these rules have to be imposed to ensure governments adherence to sustainable proper economic discipline, which had previously been, and in many cases, is still lacking, (Argentina, default again!)and, it's the IMF's money!
 I totally understand the view that the IMF are some scheming capitalist western body trying to manipulate world trade and finance for their advantage and to subjugate other countries. It's difficult sometimes, to dispel that notion,  untangle the converging interests of conglomerate monetary gain, the striving for sustainable economic policy leading to better prosperity for all nations involved within the one model.
Cuba, has been, "left alone" and I don't say it with any satisfaction. America's policy would seem severe and disproportionate, but Cuba is a totalitarian imposed regime, all Castro had to do was establish free democratic elections.

This is how you know shit is getting real in Kiev; even the priests are on the line against the security forces.
Greek Catholic priest with gas mask, a battered riot shield in one hand, a cross in the another.  That's pretty hard core.

I'm fer it!
We've heard lots of names bandied about to play Doctor Strange in the Marvel Cinematic Universe -- but Rob O. has a great suggestion: Chiwetel Ejiofor. I already believe in him as the Sorcerer Supreme, without seeing a single frame.

Too awesome not to share. :)
I'll just leave this right here...
Lego is releasing a new line of Star Wars sets called Microfighters, where characters get awesome mini-versions of ships like the Millennium Falcon and Star Destroyers to jet around in. The reason you care besides the fact that Star Wars Legos are great, is because this new commercial for them rules.

And now for something completely different.
The United States Air Force Thunderbirds are "America's Ambassadors in Blue," a famed air demonstration squadron. At air shows the announcers always say that Thunderbird aircraft could be ready for action within as little as a few days time. Well, as it turns out, they aren't lying.

Yeah, recent history tells us this will end well.
About 400 elite mercenaries from the notorious US private security firm Academi (formerly Blackwater) are taking part in the Ukrainian military operation against anti-government protesters in southeastern regions of the country, German media reports.

This could get ... interesting
When Ukraine sneezes, does Russia catch a cold? The Euromaidan has the Russian opposition emboldened, and the Kremlin spooked.

“For a country that has spoken out so frequently … against foreign intervention in Libya, in Syria, and elsewhere, it would be important for them to heed those warnings as they think about options in the sovereign nation of Ukraine,” Kerry said.

Husband, father, game designer (VBAM Games), and church administrator.

Let's just say my interests are...broad.

I'm big into PC strategy games (Hearts of Iron, Europa Universalis, Supreme Ruler 2020, etc.), traditional board wargames and miniatures wargaming.  I enjoy RPGs but to a lesser extent.

I enjoy sci-fi and fantasy fiction/movies, luv superheroes and have a passion for history, particularly military history.
