The satan worshipping new world order people are the ones that own and controle the USA. They are the people who allowed brown mexicans into the USA destroying the USA from within trojen horse style. White european americans did not vote to have the USA flooded with brown people which proves that there is no democracy in the USA.

One dictator toasting another dictator (Yanuk). They both have nothing worth while to offer to the citizens of China nor Ukraine. Power hungry is the menu for the day. They can only see as far as their noses because corruption is more beneficial. They will use everything at their disposal to ensure their lust for money and power. But greed will lead to their downfall as it has been through ages (experience). Both individuals have no soul or heart because they are driven by greed and hate.
