Neat Deal

Russia, the European Union, the current Ukranian government and the United States, signed an agreement that boils down, basically, to saying that the protesters will stop protesting. The United States, who should not have been involved, provided no incentive for compliance, other than that we will stop making threats. The protestors were granted nothing for the promise that they would stop protesting, made for them in a conference in which they were not invited to participate. This Ukranianian thing gets wierder and wierder.

Sure enough, the protestors spoke up this morning and said, basically, "Oh hell no, nobody signed anything for us," so the agreement seems not to have lasted very long. That will surprise on one other than, perhaps, John Kerry who is able to forsee nothing.
