That has the potential to be a world wide disaster.

Ukraine has nuclear weapons and many natural resources, including our favorite, oil. We have already come out against the newly elected president, who is backed by Moscow. Putin has been putting the clamps down on Russia more and more. It looks like he is moving toward a more Soviet style of leadership. Given Bush's love of war, there seems to be the potential for an American-Russian conflict, based in Ukraine.

I can't believe that Colin Powell spoke so soon against the Ukrainian election. He should have waited until things settled down over there (aside from the irony of him criticizing someone else's elections based on exit polls and reports of fraud).
