Miss Media

Lots of news: Sochi, Ukraine, back to Sochi, complaints about judges, back to Ukraine...

Andrea Mitchell was on last night, talking about the Ukraine. What is not said is why the Ukraine is important to the USA. There is great interest and media brouhaha being drummed up, but no one says why it is.

Surely the importance is not Human Rights. We may say this and that about Human Rights, but Human Right are not the reason why the Ukraine is important.

SO why is it so important?

Well, I don't know, but it was concerning the Ukraine that a US ambassador said famously:
"F* the EU !"
(European Union), so there are some interests beyond human rights. I don't see any economic interest for the USA, either.
It is probably just the plain old anti-Russian animus, the knee-jerk policy we are good at.
