Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
everyone in Ukraine, east or west, wants the same thing: To be allowed to live the way they see as right. In other words, they want freedom.

Sure, fascists who violently overthrow a legitimate, elected government, deliberately killing their allies in the process, want freedom.

How did eurotrib become just another blog spewing propaganda for the US Empire?

It's hilarious that you think DoDo of all people would spew US empire propaganda...

How did criticism of the propaganda of the US Empire become the uncritical spewing of the propaganda of the Russian Empire for you?...

.. since your previous comments here @ET. A bit hasty on your assertion of political feathers of bloggers in this community today.

Re: Europe (none / 1)

Invading is a misrepresentation of history

Capitalism's showing its ugly face once more since the downfall of the USSR is no reason to belittle the nastiness of actually existing socialism. The invasion of Hungary made quite an impression on the West European Left at the time ...

Your comment referred to the 1956 Hungarian Revolt and the Suez Crisis, Stalin's totalitarianism and Western imperialism. Today's two hot spots are indeed Eastern Europe and the Middle East, yet much has changed for the people. Not so for abuse of power by the mighty, claiming exceptionalism as mantra for evil deeds. Ugly politics and covert operations are ever present. The naive can't see through the propaganda, it takes historians to uncover what truly took place.
