Left Out in the Cold

Captain Ed has an eye-opener up today, all about a naturally gassy tiff twixt the Russians and the Ukrainians.

Perhaps Russian diplomats truly are naive, or else they thought that the rest of Europe would be stupid enough to believe that Russia could cut off gas supplies to Ukraine while still transiting gas across Ukrainian pipelines to its other customers. Viktor Yuschenko has called the Russian bluff on this little game of chicken that Vladimir Putin has suddenly decided to play.

There could be some sincere economic implications if this escalates and I'm not just talking about frozen French grannies.

And what about the polluted water coming from a river in China and going into Russia.
