The Ukrainian state continues its slow-motion collapse, this time with Poroshenko seeking to deal a death blow to the last remnants of the Rada. He has accused “half of the Verkhovna Rada” of being “a ‘fifth column’ which is controlled from abroad, whole factions” after they did not pass a bill labelling Lugansk and Donetsk’s governments as terrorist organizations.

Doubt if many were even aware there were three complete regular Ukrainian Army Brigades, two independent Regiments and a Regiment of Border Guards that had been cut-off without supplies and surrounded along a long finger against the Russian Border for the last month.

Two weeks after the separatist rebels of the Donetsk People’s Republic fled their stronghold of Sloviansk, Ukraine’s anti-terror operation continues. In the neighboring region of Luhansk, the Ukrainian military has been battling with separatists for control of Luhansk city and its strategically important airport — but with both sides using artillery, homes are being destroyed and people are being killed. Meanwhile near Donetsk, fighting has reached outlying villages as the military looks to encircle separatist forces inside the city, who vow to make their last stand among its 1 million inhabitants.

Beeman: Well, the United States and Russia are in a very tense situation over the Ukraine.

In 2011 Barack Obama led an allied military intervention in Libya without consulting the US Congress. Last August, after the sarin attack on the Damascus suburb of Ghouta, he was ready to launch an allied air strike, this time to punish the Syrian government for allegedly crossing the ‘red line’ he had set in 2012 on the use of chemical weapons.

Tony Blair demands Western intervention to overthrow Assad By Damien McElroy and agencies The consequences of refusing to intervene are likely to be more costly for the West than participating in the drive to oust the regime.
Speaking in Israel, the former prime minister acknowledged the “predominant emotion” in the West was to stay out of Syria, where rebels are battling to oust Bashar Assad and his regime, and avoid becoming embroiled in the politics of the region. “Undoubtedly the predominant emotion in the West today is to stay out of Syria; indeed to stay out of the region’s politics,” he said. “But as every day that passes shows, the cost of staying out may be paid in a higher price later.”
The comments came a day after G8 leaders papered over differences between the West and Russia to agree that a political solution to the conflict must be an international priority.
The Syrian National Coalition, the main opposition front body, said it was committed to participation in negotiations that sought to establish a transistional government.
“The Syrian National Coalition is committed to any political solution that puts an end to the […]

Brian Stewart: The F-35 fiasco and Ottawa’s culture of secrecy Apr 4, 2012
By Brian Stewart, special to CBC News
The who-knew-what about the real costs of the F-35 fighter jet Canada wants to purchase is worrisome enough. But at the heart of the fiasco is a far more serious concern about what public honesty means to this government.
It’s a sad state that few Canadians appear surprised by the auditor general’s findings that Parliament was kept in the dark over the real costs of this program and what looks to be a $10-billion overrun.
Many seem to assume that misleading and denying whenever it suits is a government’s normal default position. After all, this government seems to have done it for years on Afghanistan and with its other problems in national defence.
In my own attempts to unravel the F-35′s real costs I never once met a single soul outside government and knowledgeable about defence purchases who believed the prime minister’s promise that the planes could be delivered for a bargain-rate $75 million each.
