Restoring Democracy, American Style

US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt, who was caught on tape planning the overthrow of the Ukrainian government with US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, described the fruits of his heretofore successful regime change operation as “thrilling, exhausting, but also inspiring.”

The democratically-elected Viktor Yanukovich is ousted — despite a US/EU-brokered deal — and his political party is about to be outlawed in a Ukrainian parliament that has tossed aside constitutional procedures and is operating in full revolution mode. In Yanukovich’s place has been installed — contrary to Ukrainian legal procedures — the former head of the KGB, Oleksandr Turchynov.

But that is not enough for Susan Rice (and her comrade-in-arms, Senator John McCain).
Asked about the possibility that the Russian military might become involved in restoring the legal government in Ukraine, she warned: “That would be a grave mistake.”

Grave mistake? Is Susan Rice threatening US military action against Russia?

She continued, “It’s in nobody’s interest to see violence return and the situation escalate.” This after it was US support for the rebels in Ukraine that started the violence in the first place.-
