I'd be happy just to get a good rearview camera on my motorbike. All I get to see in the mirrors are my elbows...

replace the mirrors with more extruding-ones. that makes lane splitting harder, though ;)
of course, looking over the shoulder instead of using the mirrors should be one thing every motorcycle rider does most after the first season.
and there's this development to have rearview cameras in helmets. currently it's either a hack-your-own job or something ridiculously expensive, but maybe one day...

so the govt could say "fine, cameras it is, if you all can agree on one mount and one adapter standard and max 5 enclosure form factors. oh, and it all 100% royalty free and with public designs".
not that i see usa govt doing this. maybe european commission one day...

this has a safety angle, too - if the replacement mirror is available from the vendor only and costs 100 usd, you are likely to see people not replace them and endanger others. if you can get quality aftermarket part for 1/4 of that or so, it makes much less sense not to fix it.

The first thing happening in Crimea happened long before Kiev fell.

do you mean russian soldiers wandering outside of their bases, which was prohibited by ukraine-russia agreement?

And you will further claim the the US and EU nations are not aggressive and have purely altruistic goals?

i'm not sure about the usa. most eu nations seem to be very concerned, especially given that many of them have just slipped out of the totalitarian grip. i would agree that they don't have purely altruistic goals - they have survivalistic goals. they know they are the next...

what Russia did was nothing like what Hitler did, which was my original point.

it's definitely close to what hitler did. it's almost like putin is roleplaying hitler.
just one example of many is to compare putin's speech with hitler's speech: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6SB9sqCevk#t=1h50m11s

If I don't pain them as evil I paint them as good?

you whitewash evil actions. decide for yourself what does that make you. it might seem ok right now, but such approach does seem to eat the consciousness from inside.

first, if you would like to stick with real voting, you would have to do a real, honest vote. bringing in the army shows that even russia does not believe in such a vote in crimea :)

also, i have no idea what is usa/obama propaganda. i can't recall seeing a single usa news item on ukraine - i try to follow various sources from ukraine.

"maybe your viewpoint would cause suffering if adopted" - looks like a classic fud to me. "oh, so these actions have caused definite suffering, but but but, the other way around could cause some, too !" - except that ukraine had no real problems, no clashes, until russia invaded.

if you want to look at pot/kettle, look no further than the nazi extremism in _russia_, the actions against immigrants and even people from republics of russia, the massive hatred towards ukrainians that has been bred by the mass media. that is where lies, resulting in suffering, are coming from. there's a lot of handwaving from russia today and similar sources, and it is sad to see people succumbing to that, assuming they are not paid for the disinformation in the first place.

when you say "Russia gave up the Ukraine" it's as if they owned it - well, they kinda did, by extension of the soviet union. but i don't think anybody sane would use that as an argument.

"replaced it with a more pro-NATO one" - that is false. even the new government never mentioned nato. except that the russian movements in crimea actually got them worried enough to mention it, and even then say that they are not looking to join nato...

"it's a hell of a lot more real than people like you seem to think" - in 2013, ~ 10% of the residents of crimea would have voted for joining the russia. sorry, invading a territory and staging a "vote" is not acceptable, even if you try to hide it behind rephrasing.

they might be russian, but in 2013 10% wanted to join russia. i guess invading the region with military can really motivate one, eh ?

i visited crimea in 2013. russians, especially those who had migrated to crimea recently, were quite vocal about how they are russians... but they do not want to live in russia. they surely did not have to be "saved".

you might not care that your advocating leads to suffering of many people. if so, your evilness will eventually eat you from inside.

that was not a vote in crimea. invaded by a foreign army, which operates without insignia and is denied by russia itself. active terror against tatars. it has been a terrible, terrible lie that seems to be promoted by rt, mostly (well, and the mass media in russia, of course).

So Crimea did not ask for Russian protection on the first day of the uprising in Kiev?

there are no sources claiming anything like that, even not russian ones. the first thing happening in crimea was invasion by an army wearing no insignia.

it was not a coup. the current rada is the same one for the most part. claiming anything else is a lie from the cremlin media.

Wow, just wow. Armed gangs take over a government and it's not a coup to you, nothing like changing a word to fit your means I guess. Do I need to give a LMGTFY link so you can find the definition of "coup"? Say so if you can't find the definition of the word.

Interestingly what is lost by you, and US media, is that on when the protests started even US media said the uprising started not because of an evil tyranny, but because the Government of the Ukraine didn't want to become a member of the EU. Considering how every country that has joined has gotten butfucked by global bankers, I am not sure that decision was wrong. It had nothing to do with Russia, until someone needed a villain. Wholly shit this is still in Google, go figure out how to use "Search".

not sure what the usa media did - don't think i've seen any detail on ukraine from them. not sure what media you follow, but it seems to be heavily cremlin controlled. your account of the events is wrong - either on purpose or not, that determines your evilness.

yanukovich cancelled eu cooperation (not even close to membership !) agreement, taking a loan from putin instead. a small group of students and like-minded protested in kyiv, got brutally beaten. as ukrainians said, "we are not used to citizens being beaten up" - so next day kyiv was full of protesters, this time majority of them brought out by the oppression from the special forces. more brutality, murders, kidnappings, torture... further events are more popularised - and eventually it was the rada that voted to remove yanukovich, even members of his own party ("party of regions") were leaving the party - there were dozens of deputies who left it...

compared to ukraine ? haha

Ahh, selective thinking. No, not compared to the Ukraine but compared to the US and EU allies of the US.

Learn to spell and use your caps key, I refuse to respond further to a person that lacks common courtesy with communication in addition to a critical lack of facts..

i apologise for my spelling, here in eastern europe we learned english as our third language. and we know this neighbouring country too well to see who's the aggressor.

you are either quite delusional or financially motivated to whitewash the actions of russia - which, despite there being many really great people in there, is a monster that endangers all of it's neighbours and whole world.

if you refuse to respond, that's good, because such propaganda, based on lies, can lead tu huge suffering.
