World News - Ukraine

It looks as if the move by the Ukrainian government to quell the protests and retake government buildings has stalled. In one instance, government troops gave up their armored personnel transports to militants who displayed them in a public square. In another instance, a column of government troops was kept from advancing by unarmed civilians. Troops just turned their vehicles off and socialized with the citizens as the awaited orders. If this is the start of a civil war, it's off to a poor start. The good news is that there have been little reports of casualties and no reports of Russian troop incursions. Maybe things will calm down?

What do you think?
