So you are complaining that after thousands of years of killing and fighting, Europe now wants to resolve issues thru diplomacy? USA has NO idea how the world politics work, it`s pretty easy to sit between Mexico and Canada. Try sharing 1300km of your total 2600km border with Russia, see how easy it is.. Russia can take any single country on Europe 1 on 1.. FFS, they could possibly take us all within a week.

Invading 3rd world countries for oil and launching drone strikes, that`s all that USA is interested. Definitely your export is not common sense.

[quote]The situation in Russia and Ukraine just prove how lame the EU is. What can they do? Nothing. A strongly worded letter can be issued, perhaps.

Remember the last time there was genocide on the European continent, in the 90s? What did they do? Nothing, they had to wait for us to "lead". And then they complain when we do. I can`t keep track of which genocides they want to prevent, and which are admissible.[/quote]

Nailed Europeans down with that right there all they want to do is complain and that`s all they`re capable of.

The pathetic posturing and withering criticism from the supporters of left wing ideologues about the heavy handedness of the cossacks is the epitome of hypocrisy.

In the lands they inhabit all cultures must be respected and allowed to practice whatever they wish, regardless of sensitivities of the native culture. however, when witnessing a foreign culture that is deeply conservative reacting to what they feel is a hugely insulting `performance` their culture is insulted and demeaned; `how dare they not believe what i believe in and how dare they not have `tolerance``.

The reaction of the cossacks was, to my view, extremely aggressive and over the top. Nevertheless, pussy riot saw it as a risk worth taking for their immature and self publicising `protest`.

Look up `cruel` in an illustrated dictionary, and you`ll see a picture of a Human :(
But even for humans, this is effing shameful!

I am sure it was the intent to get beat up.

If I were the evil cops, I`d just focus all the abuse on the smallest one. If you give them all a beating, there is no collective guilt that the little one lost her teeth and the others didn`t get a scratch.

Thoughts: 1. Actually, this is very mild compared to historical Russia., 2. Pussy Riot includes a guy? Is he a cat person? 3. Is their name actually "Pussy Riot" instead of the Russian words? If so, how does that make any sense? 4. Does "pussy" really have the double meaning in Russian as it does in English? If not, and their name is in Russian is it "vagina" riot or "cat" riot in that language?

Incidentally, so you don`t think I`m a dope, every one of those thoughts were tongue in cheek.

I`m not saying these government goons are right to be beating on them. What I am saying is these `pussy riot` folks have a very stupid way of attracting attention and WANT to be beaten on.

Hence, provocation.

Pussy Riot itself consists primarily of tools, yes.

Don`t compare two different things. NOTHING would be tolerated in the Olympics in the USA.

"Imagine Westboro or KKK och ETC in the Olympic Village? Of course not. It is not freedom of speach when you perform inside of Olympic Village in order to spread your political views. The Olympic Charter forbids this behaviour."

I agree. The difference is that in the USA, protest groups would simply not be allowed admission to certain areas. The protest would take place across the street and I seriously doubt they would be attacked by the police that way.

The violent police response was/is Pussy Riot`s singular aim. It`s all left wing theatre designed to get the bleeding hearts in the west to say "Oh my God, look at how oppressive Putin`s Russia is!" These women aren`t quite the victims they want you to view them as. It`s all calculated and political. Pussy Riot is a musical group in as much as they say that that`s what they are; they`re just thinly veiled political tools.

We put up with Westboro, anti government, the KKK, ETC. We STILL put up with it. There`s nothing wrong with an informed public....

Russia has it right! Let`s just beat anyone we don`t agree with into submission! /sarcasm

Pussy Riot has balls. I don`t always agree with how they do it but at least they are trying to change their country. unfortunately probably not going to change Russia in the long run. Hatred runs deep as does the old KGB`s hold on that government.

As much as I dislike seeing defenseless women being beaten, we need to keep in mind that violence is the sole intent of any Pussy Riot performance. If they don`t get this exact response they view the "performance" as a failure. Just keep that in mind.

I stand corrected, then.

I still believe beating down artists is a dick move.

@BoredFrank: I didn`t hear any singing. This is strictly "performance art" with the sole aim of attracting police attention. They may edit the video later to add actual music but there was nothing remotely musical happening here.

Apparently I don`t understand what a "pussy riot" is because I totally expected something different.

Is it something to do with mixing primary colors and bad fashion?

I have no sympathy for Pussy Riot, what a lame symbol of the free speech movement in russia.

They had a public orgy once, fyi. That`s part of the reason authorities don`t like them. Of course, CNN would never mention that.

They were singing. Just singing.

If you consider that an act of provocation, I`m sure the Jackboot Brigades would love to have you sign up.

Putin can parade around shirtless all he wants, but the truth is that Russia is a backward sheethole run by jackbooted thugs.
