World News - Ukraine

Things seem to have quieted down in Ukraine, but there are a couple of interesting developments. First, the government of Ukraine issued $1 billion in bonds today at low interest rates and they are guaranteed by… the U.S.! What? How did that happen and why did that happen? Second, a Russian built helicopter with U.N. markings was used against the separatists in Eastern Ukraine. As a result Russia is crying (justifiably) foul. Wow, things are a bit strange in Ukraine and I am starting to think that this all might not end well. What if all the "superpowers" kept their distance and minded their own business? Maybe Ukraine would figure this all out? But if people start to meddle then all bets are off and things will get ugly. This is how major wars get started.

What do you think?
