Owners of weapons,
We know that you are the most moderate and responsible part of the Ukrainian society, which so far did not participate in the standoff.
Unfortunately, however the conflict transitioned to the armed stage.
The control over the situation is effectively lost.
Now each one of us bears personal responsibility for his own safety and the safety of his family, and in this difficult time, also for the safety of his fellow countrymen.
Weaponry in the hands of responsible citizens has been in all times the bet peacemaker.
We call you to act, governed by your own convictions and all-mankind moral values and, in case of necessity, give a resolute resistance to the criminal elements. In all the rest we rely on your reason and responsibility.

If you want to be on this right wing, monarchy, paleolibertarianism and nationalism ping list, but are not, please let me know. If you are on it and want to be off, also let me know. This ping list is not used for Catholic-Protestant debates.
I don't know how things will turn out for Ukraine, but in the US, when the flag goes up, I think we'll do OK.
The problem is each side sees the other side as “the criminal elements.” And, from each perspective, they’re right. This statement, unless there’s something I don’t understand that’s implied, says nothing.
I hope they got a lot of weapons and ammo into civilian hands when they their brief experiment with freedom. Maybe, they can preserve it.
Snipers taking out snipers...

Food for thought.
Ukraine has conscription, so most adult males have at least a degree of military training and experience, and its not like guns are hard to get hold of in Eastern Europe...

Coming to a town near you soon.
Do you think they put a golf course in the new bunker under the White House?
Soros v. Putin. Difficult choice. And in the top picture, the only weapon I see being actually used is the Molotov.
The choice is no longer about Soros, and probably never has been.
When I was a kid in 1st grade at St. Joesphat’s in Phila. they made us learn ukrainian for some reason. To this day I know not why.
