The US and the EU got the pot boiling with Ukraine. They organized and mobilized the protesters. They put up the barricades and lit them with burning tires. But, the pro-Russian government chose a softly-softly approach and sent in unarmed riot police.

They upped the ante with stones and molotov cocktails. And still, the Yanukovych government didn’t take the bait. The police stayed unarmed, although sustaining heavier casualties. The standoff continued.

Then came the snipers. We’re not sure who hired them, but they appear to have been shooting at BOTH the police AND the protesters. That’s when everything started to fall apart for the Yanukovich government.

Within days, it was all over. Viktor Yanukovych was in exile. Ukraine was in the hands of the pro-EU opposition parties. It was a big win for the US State Department and the CIA, and there was egg on the face of Vladimir Putin.

The problem is that Putin didn’t play the game like he was supposed to.
