Fellow soldiers call Bowe Bergdahl a deserter, not a hero 06/02/2014 Fellow soldiers call Bowe Bergdahl a deserter, not a hero
(CNN) -- The sense of pride expressed by officials of the Obama administration at the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is not shared by many of those who served with him -- veterans and soldiers who call him a deserter whose "selfish act" ended up costing the lives of better men.
"I was pissed off then and I am even more so now with everything going on," said former Sgt. Matt Vierkant, a member of Bergdahl's platoon when he went missing on June 30, 2009. "Bowe Bergdahl deserted during a time of war and his fellow Americans lost their lives searching for him."

Pro-Russian separatists to go ahead with eastern Ukraine referendum 05/08/2014 Pro-Russian separatists to go ahead with eastern Ukraine referendum
The pro-Russia insurgency in eastern Ukraine decided Thursday to go ahead with Sunday's referendum on autonomy despite a call from Russian President Vladimir Putin to delay it.

While Putin's call on Wednesday to postpone the vote was seen as part of an effort to step back from confrontation and negotiate a deal with the West, he fueled tensions again on Thursday by overseeing military exercises that Russian news agencies said simulated a massive retaliatory nuclear strike in response to an enemy attack.

But the three-day session comes as Boko Haram is garnering international headlines with the ongoing kidnappings of schoolgirls and grim taunting of the government of President Goodluck Jonathan.
