U.S. MULLING SANCTIONS AGAINST UKRAINE NOW BECAUSE THEY JUST NEED TO GET INVOLVED IN EVERYTHING
December 12 2013
Washington, D.C. – Just about everyone know that the United States likes freedom, more or less. They love freedom when they see other countries going around trying to take it away from people, especially when those countries have some kind of economic or strategic value to them. Not as much when it comes to people leaking their government documents and stuff, but when it comes to other people, absolutely.
The U.S. has been on a tear promoting and endorsing freedom all over the planet recently and so when it became apparent that the Ukraine was trying to do away with freedom, free assembly, free speech, by cracking down on what were mostly peaceful protests they decided that they needed to get involved.
Now, though no action has been taken yet, the U.S., has threatened the Ukraine with sanctions unless they stop beating people in the streets, something which has really not abated as yet. The Ukraine of course has the full support of Russia in beating their citizens in the streets of Kiev and other cities and are likely less motivated to stop what they are doing because of that, and also they might just not want to bow to the U.S. since those guys stick their noses in everything.
“The Ukrainian government's response to peaceful protests over the last two weeks has been completely unacceptable... The right to peaceful protest and assembly must be respected,” said White House deputy spokesman Josh Earnest.
Congress is right no considering sanctions, denying visas to Ukrainian officials, and possibly seizing assets in their country if the beatings continue.
It’s not clear how badly that would actually impact the Ukraine since they are not really a country that has been overly cozy with the United States in the past because, again, of Russia.
“This action, if it is taken, is likely more about dealing with Russia than it is with the Ukraine. I mean sure they care about the people of the country, sure, of course, but they have been engaging in this power struggle thing with Russia recently and they are going to take any shots they can,” said Scrape TV American analyst Dave Davidson. “It’s possibly a good thing that they are taking action, regardless of the reasons, unless of course it just alienates the Ukrainian government even more, pushes them even more into the hands of the Russians, then it will not have worked out very well.”
The sanctions would likely affect the people they are designed to protect more than the government, as is almost always the case.
“Hopefully if they do this they will at least think it out, that they won’t just rush in like fools and starting throwing sanctions down wherever they can. They need to be careful about how they do it if they want it to work, or if they want to at least believe they are making it work, it probably won’t work, let’s be honest about that,” continued Davidson. “It will probably accomplish nothing at all which sucks for the people in the country and for the U.S. but not for Russia, Russia will love it I’m sure, jerks.”
Russia officials had no comment and anything the Ukrainian government has to say is probably just best ignored.
