Ukraine: Russia on Verge of Replacing Neo-Con Government

An interesting thing is happening in the Ukraine. There is a major split in what is generally regarded as the anti-Russian forces in Parliament. A parliamentary faction led by Ukraine's President Viktor Yushchenko's ally, former prime minister Yulia Tymoshehnko, switched sides during a stormy Monday night session to join with the pro-Russia Regions Party to approve a package of bills aimed at reducing the presidency to the status of mere figurehead, and to establish impeachment procedures for removing the President.

The new group has 300 members out of the Parliament's 450 total members. The days of pro-neo-con President Yushchenko appear to be numbered.

This is a case of the Russian bear quitely playing a power game in it's backyard, in a nation that was joined to Russia for centuries. Many factors are at play, not the least is bribery and blackmail. However, there are many in the Ukraine who don't want to see their nation involved in a war with Russia to serve the crazy evil strategy of the American and European neo-cons.

The war in Georgia has opened a massive can of worms for the world.
