Whilst The West Is Distracted, Lukashenka Acts

Yes it was only a matter of time, but it appears the pro-Western opposition leader in Belarus - Alexander Milinkevich - has been arrested. Thanks to Belarus American Blog for this one.

Will the arrest spark much noise from the West? Unlikely. Ukraine is about to fall back into Russia's sphere of influence, and most of Europe is concerned with the current mess in the Middle-East. Im sure Chavez is patting Lukashenka on the back as we speak....
