    That Ukrainian ad is great
    I knew a simple soldier boy.....
    Who grinned at life in empty joy,
    Slept soundly through the lonesome dark,
    And whistled early with the lark.

    In winter trenches, cowed and glum,
    With crumps and lice and lack of rum,
    He put a bullet through his brain.
    And no one spoke of him again.

    You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye
    Who cheer when soldier lads march by,
    Sneak home and pray you'll never know
    The hell where youth and laughter go.

    I won't ask how you found that!

    Why does it conjure up visions of some Dublin 4 Ad agency thinking a platoon lined up in CEFO doing Riverdance would make a good shot...
    'He died who loved to live,' they'll say,
    'Unselfishly so we might have today!'
    Like hell! He fought because he had to fight;
    He died that's all. It was his unlucky night.

    It is a great video, but how often does it get shown outside of Youtube?

    I have visited Ukraine regularly with work over the past 3 years and while I haven't been watching their TV channels (can't understand the language) I have noticed that every other billboard is an advertisement for the military. I have also noted a lot more uniforms on the street and the area I visit is in the Transcarpathian region which is on the western side of the country and very far from the front.

    A recent newpaper report stated that recruitment was so far below norms in the Ukrainian Army (no-one wants to fight the Russians, as the strong possibility of getting killed exists) that a hurried campaign to enlist people was created, yet the public of recruitment age has stayed away in droves. The average Ukrainian has zero faith in the Government and corruption is rampant so people are voting with their feet.

    Polls show Poroshenko on about 10% of votes ahead of the coming general election, so the puppet looks likely to be soundly defeated. What happens afterwards will be interesting, do the CIA have another candidate?
