A) I doubt you've ever spent any time talking to Muslim immigrants in this country. Saying they cant move beyond primitive religious practices ( or have any desire to engage in such) is like saying Christians cant but then our Christian based western societies have. Gays are supposed to be killed according to the old testament which Jews, Christians, and Muslims all follow.
But "wait!" you're bound to say, the fact that they havent moved beyond is proof beyond all doubt of their degenerecy! Except it's not. Behavior like this is a function of wealth or the lack thereof. The poorer a society the more prone they are to engage in religious radicalism.
B) As for Ukraine, there's no proof of US involvement. There were however elections that were held a bit later that garnered 60 percent of the population where no pro Russia candidate showed any impressive standings. This certainly suggests a wide spread distaste for the prior government.
Really things like the Ukraine crisis highlight 70 years of failed Russian foriegn policy. Why would any non ethnically Russian Eastern European want their country under the thumb of Russia after all Russia has put them through.
