The puppet politicians who Washington intended to put in charge of Ukraine have lost control to organized and armed neo-nazis, who are attacking Jews, Russians, and intimidating Ukrainian politicians. As Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn pointed out, it was folly for the Communist Party of the Soviet Union to transfer historic provinces of Russia into Ukraine
According to what has appeared as a leaked telephone conversation between the Estonian Foreign Minister and Catherine Ashton, EU external affairs head, the European Union knew that the snipers firing on crowds in Kiev were not sent by Yanukovich, but rather from the faces behind the coup, which the west supports.
The American press is fond of patting itself on the back for upholding the first amendment to the US Constitution, that being, among other things, freedom of the press. But that does not mean the freedom to obfuscate, ignore facts and curry favor with the US national security apparatus in whatever covert or overt form it takes
Recent events in the Ukraine made me remember the events in South Ossetia. Especially, how the US and the West blamed Russia for invading Georgia. A huge information war was waged against Russia. It happened again in 2012 during the Russian Presidential elections and again regarding the Ukraine today
Before we have a display of butt-faced, pig-headed arrogance, insolence and intrusion from Mr. John Kerry in Kiev, let us see the real issues behind the scenes, let us cut the hype and hysteria and let us start from a clear standpoint that the United States of America has not one iota of moral credibility to lecture anyone on anything.
Revolution and madness has engulfed the Ukraine tarnishing the validity of sanity of brotherly countrymen as violence and chaos fuels ultra-nationalist movements in an atmosphere of anarchy. The world stands on the brink of nuclear disaster. The current Crimean Crisis draws eerie parallels to the Cuban Missile Crisis
Has the Fuehrer finally become the inspirer of the West? After the destruction of Iraq or various states of Central America, after the extermination of 4 million Vietnamese, it seems that the West, believing in its eternal and capitalistic force, omnipotent propaganda and humanitarian Messianism, wants its final war with the Russian bear
The irresponsibility of the western media calling Oleksandr Turchynov "Interim President" and referring to the "new Government" of Ukraine walks hand in hand with the notion that Governments can be deposed and instated by groups of armed thugs on the streets. Turchynov claims power, but what about the massive voting fraud in the Rada?
On 24 February 2014 US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel held a press conference to announce some of the details of Pentagon's 2015 budget. Beyond the news of cuts in warfighting machinery and personnel, Hagel made a point of indicating that the world is becoming an increasingly volatile place
Ukraine has become the new fault-line for global powers competing for influence in the region similarly to a manner witnessed during the Cold War. The deteriorating situation can be attributed to the competing foreign policies amongst the leading world powers - namely Russia, the United States, and the European Union
Dozens upon dozens of foreign terrorist forces, mostly from Chechnya, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, have been exterminated by the Syrian Arab Army in recent days in several areas of the country. A vast area of territory around Damascus housing most of the yrian population has been cleansed.
The Ukrainian gruesome and somewhat insane disaster deserves one explanation: Zbigniew Brzezinski. The Polish-born American geopolitical expert deserves indeed to be read like Adolph Hitler, who demonized Russia in his time like "general" buffoon McCain does today
Calling for the West to act responsibly is arguably the same as asking a bawling drunkard screaming obscenities to be quiet after a skinful of spirits and paramount to requesting a serial rapist to just stop. However, this is no time for quips and very much the time for some skilful diplomacy over early recognition of actors in a Putsch.
