The Russians are coming and their excuse is that they were frustrated by a week of delays after sending over "130 AID" trucks. These vehicles rolled into rebel-held eastern Ukraine today without the direct approval of the government in Kiev. Ukraine called the move a "direct invasion" that aimed to provoke an international incident.

Fighting in eastern Ukraine began back in mid-April, a month after Russia annexed Ukraine's southern Black Sea peninsula. It has killed over 2,000 people and forced 340,000 to flee, according to the United Nations.

Gandhi showed the power of peacefully opposing oppression and hatred. He showed how cooperation and tolerance can prevails over injustice. He demonstrated the great value of the rule of law in breaking vicious cycles of vengeance.

Other

If there was ever one thing that Republicans and Democrats have in common, it's that they can be split on issues within their respective parties. And that would be the case for both parties when it come to Intellectual Property and Privacy on the Internet. If you get onto the GOP website and read their Party Platforms, you will find two sections that are centered on the internet. The first section, labeled "Protecting Internet Freedom", is a paragraph at is quite vague. They talk about how the internet has helped fuel new innovation more than any other technological advancement.
