WTF, CSM?


The editorial board of the Christian Science Monitor writes:

Ukraine's plebicites [sic] are illegal under both its own laws and international law, as well as corrupted by being held under threat of force and slipshod procedures. Yet despite this illegtimacy [sic], the interim government in Kiev has responded with a civic spirit, born of a democracy that seeks firmer bonds of community by consensus.

By "seeks firmer bonds of community by consensus," the Monitor's editorial board presumably means "guns down would-be voters in the streets."

And speaking of "illegal" actions, the Monitor doesn't deign to mention just how the "interim government" it lauds for "civic spirit" came to power less than three months ago. Hint: It wasn't "born of a democracy that seeks firmer bonds of community by consensus."
