Persecution of Tymoshenko

Quite amazing developments in the world, circa 2010, while U.S. politicians and officials such as Bush II, Cheney, Rumsfeld and others enjoy de facto immunity for committing some of the worst crimes in American history, involving war, torture and otherwise flagrantly violating the Constitution, as conversely, by 180 degrees, in regards to both the alleged crimes and prosecutory discretion, Ukrainian authorities are prosecuting former Ukrainian Prime Minister, Yulia Tymoshenko, for past political decisions of a fairly arcane nature involving financial decisions. It should be noted that Tymoshenko is the current opposition leader. This looks similar to former Egyptian president/dictator, Mubarak, putting the politician who had the audacity to run against him for president in prison on charges of some rather arcane election law violation. This is an interesting contrast between the United States and Ukraine, politics as usual in both cases, just different styles of bamboozlement.
