Ukrainian Protesters Chant "Yankees Go Home"; Klitschko Warns Of "More Deaths"

Tyler Durden's picture

Ukrainian protesters erected more street barricades and occupied another government ministry building on Friday after the failure of crisis talks with President Yanukovich, as opposition leader Klitschko feared "more deaths" pointing to a weekend of increasingly violent protests. Reuters reports that Yanukovich's party stated "the situation has grown sharper throughout the country," and called on people to disregard the calls of "radical troublemakers" to turn out for protest rallies. Klitschko punched back, "Yanukovich has declared war on his own people. He is trying to hold on to power at the price of blood and de-stabilization of the situation in the country. He has to be stopped." The international community is getting involved with Hollande calling for "dialogue" but it is Biden's threat of "consequences" that spurred a different protest at the US embassy - "The US is behind everything that is happening in Kiev’s downtown right now."

 

"Not A Step Back" - warns opposition:

 

Via Reuters,

The problem started...

Hundreds of thousands took to the streets in the capital after Yanukovich backed away from signing a free trade deal with the European Union, which many people saw as the key to a European future, in favor of financial aid from Ukraine's old Soviet master Russia.

 

But the movement has since widened into broader protests against perceived misrule and corruption in the Yanukovich leadership.

 

Protesters have been enraged too by sweeping anti-protest legislation that was rammed through parliament last week by Yanukovich loyalists in the assembly.

and is spreading...

Yanukovich's Party of the Regions confirmed reports that two months of anti-government protests were spreading to other parts of the country, particularly the west, where "extremists" had seized regional administration buildings.

And will get worse...

Opposition leader Vitaly Klitschko, who with two other opposition leaders failed to wring any concessions from Yanukovich late last night, said the only way out of the impasse lay with international mediation.

 

"Any discussion of how to settle the crisis in Ukraine must take place with the involvement of the international mediators of the highest level," a statement from his Udar party quoted him as saying.

 

"Instead of shifting to solving the situation by common sense, Yanukovich has declared war on his own people. He is trying to hold on to power at the price of blood and de-stabilization of the situation in the country. He has to be stopped," the boxer-turned-politician said.

 

...

 

Masked protesters, some carrying riot police shields seized as trophies, stood guard as others piled up sandbags packed with frozen snow to form new ramparts across the road leading down into the square.

 

...

 

Opposition leader Vitaly Klitschko, after leaving a second round of talks with Yanukovich empty handed, late on Thursday voiced fears the impasse could now lead to further bloodshed.

But at the US embassy, a different crowd is revolting...

As 21st Cetruy Wire reports:

...a new faction of intelligent Ukrainian protesters has sprung up this week.

They see right through the covert western operation:

“The US is behind everything that is happening in Kiev’s downtown right now.”


From yesterday afternoon, this new group have begun to encircle the US Embassy in Kiev. Their demand to the US:

‘Stop meddling in our affairs, and stop sponsoring unrest mobs in our country’. 

KIev-US-Embassy
Following John McCain’s recent trip to Kiev practicing his new brand of international racketeering by threatening the Ukraine if they did not join the EU, it seems that the real Ukrainians have finally figured out that the pro-EU mobs have been staged by a conclave of western NGO’s and ‘democracy foundations’ – the very same nest of hornets who brought on the fabled ‘Arab Spring’ to the Middle East three years ago.

The main goal for Washington and the City of London is to separate Kiev from Moscow, and thus weaken Russia’s hand in Eurasia.

For EU central bankers, the prospect of raping and privatising the Urkraine economy-  is also a big incentive.

It looks like the old tricks are no longer working. At last, the ‘colour revolution’ jig may finally be up…

RT.com
 

A huge crowd of demonstrators has surrounded the US embassy in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev, protesting against Washington’s meddling in the country’s internal affairs.

Follow RT’s live updates.

The event was organized by Kievans for Clean City, a new pro-government activist group which has spoken out against the rioters and violence in downtown Kiev.

Several thousand demonstrators are taking part, urging the US to “stop sponsoring” mass unrests, local media reported.

“The US is behind everything that is happening in Kiev’s downtown right now. The financing is coming from over there. This has to be stopped. That is what we came out here to say to the whole world: ‘US – stop! US – there needs to be peace in Ukraine,’” said Ivan Protsenko, one of the movement’s leaders.

And the evidence of this is...? Oh wait I see, RT claims it - must be true then.

John McCain = global NWO troublemaker. 

Pappy Admiral McCain = scumbag who sold out the USS Liberty along with LBJ.   Who was the first to show up to help the USS Liberty?  The Russian Navy.   McCain's old man and LBJ recalled F-4's from helping the Liberty.  Scum.

The USS Liberty Timeline


"Israeli 'flying boxcar' with Israeli markings circles Liberty at about 200 feet. Crew member Larry Weaver says, 'I was actually able to wave to the co-pilot, a fellow on the right-hand side of the plane. He waved back, and actually smiled at me.'"

"Israeli torpedo boats spot Liberty and call for an immediate air strike."

"Attack lasts approximately 22 minutes, involving 30 to 35 sorties, killing nine men and wounding around 60. Israeli pilot reports to base: 'Great, wonderful, she’s burning, she’s burning.'"

"Captain Joe Tully of the USS Saratoga acknowledges call for help, dispatches four F-4 Phantom jets, and informs Liberty that help is on the way. Within minutes U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert MacNamara orders rescue jets to return: 'Tell Sixth Fleet to get those aircraft back immediately.'"

"Because the Israeli fighters had destroyed the American flag, Captain McGonagle orders the signalman to hoist the 'holiday ensign,' the largest flag the ship has."

"[Israeli torpedo] boats launch five German-made 19-inch torpedoes at Liberty."

"After the order to 'prepare to abandon ship' comes over the loudspeaker system, the lifeboats are lowered into the water. Israeli torpedo boats move in closer and fire on them, as well as those still on deck, making them all unusable."

"'I watched with horror as the floating life rafts were riddled with holes,' recalled Lieutenant Lloyd Painter, in charge of the evacuation. Said Petty Officer Rowley, who also witnessed the event: 'They didn’t want anyone to live.'"

"Deputy Director Louis Tordella is informed by Deputy Director of Joint Reconnaissance Center, Captain Vineyard, that 'consideration was then being given by some unnamed Washington authorities to sink the Liberty in order that newspaper men would be unable to photograph her and thus inflame public opinion against the Israelis.'"

"Secretary of Defense McNamara again orders rescue planes recalled; order is confirmed by President Johnson because 'we are not going to embarrass an ally.'"

"Deputy Secretary of Defense orders that all news releases on attack are to be made in Washington."

"Rear Admiral Lawrence Geis, commander of the Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean, protests decision to recall rescue planes to Secretary of Defense McNamara. At that point President Johnson comes on the phone and says he didn’t care if the ship sunk, he would not embarrass his allies."


"Israeli Lt. Col. Michael Bloch telephones Commander Castle that Liberty, because it was not flying a flag, had been mistaken for the Egyptian supply ship El Queseir."

USS Liberty vs. El Queseir - displacement

USS Liberty vs. El Queseir - profile


"Liberty arrives in Malta. Total news blackout imposed. Rear Admiral Kidd warns crew: 'You are never, repeat never, to discuss this with anyone, not even your wives. If you do, you will be court-martialed and will end your lives in prison or worse.' Secretary of Defense McNamara informs media that, 'Department of Defense will have no further comment.'"

"Secretary of State Dean Rusk tells NATO ambassadors in Luxembourg that Israel’s attack was deliberate. His remark is reported in European, but not U.S. papers."

"Later, Israel will honor Motor Torpedo Boat 203, the one that fired the deadly torpedo at the Liberty, by putting its wheel and bell on display in its naval museum, among those maritime items of which it is most proud."

"Israeli senior lead pilot approaches former Congressman Pete McCloskey and admits that he recognized the Liberty as American immediately, so informed his headquarters, and was told to ignore the American flag and continue his attack."

"Columnists Evans and Novak publish interview with Dwight Porter, U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon in 1967, in which Porter says that during or immediately after the attack on the Liberty the CIA station chief showed him transcripts of intercepted Israeli messages. One has Israel ordering the attack on the Liberty, another has an Israeli pilot replying it’s an American ship. When the order to attack is repeated, the pilot insists he can see the American flag. The pilot is told again: 'Attack it.'"

Wow this certainly follows a clearly defined pattern.  MSM tells us all that this all over some local political dispute, like should Ukraine have closer ties to Russia or the EU.  But then twitter pictures always show protesters surrounding the US Embassy.

More like no single political entity inside the country can control it. Gotta hand it to their pols, though, for not

seeing that playing the west against the east (remaining independent) is the way to go.

"should Ukraine have closer ties to Russia or the EU."

it started this way. MSM ineeds time to digest complex situations. and gets easily distracted. and journalism those days is... below standard

In Ukraine, the true protesters are fighting against corruption. In the US, the serfs support and vote for corruption. Real change won't happen in the US until the masses are starving in the streets. Nothing short of that will invoke any meaningful change. It will have to get worse, much much worse before it gets better in the US. Unfortunately by then, the chaff will be safely confined to Fema camps and Big Brother Security will control the serfs so effectively revolt is impossible. The New Feudal World Order is fast approaching.

NotApplicable's picture

Thing is, fighting against corruption only fuels further corruption, as a violence-based society has no other alternatives.

Divide and Conquer 101.

The only true solution is the delegitimization of the power that corrupts, by refusing to accept is as a valid social structure. Ala, the revolution of the mind.

SDShack's picture

All forms of govt other then a true democratic republic are essentially violence (coercion)-based societies. This stems from the natural law of survival of the fittest. Humans are essentially pack animals, so the same animal instincts apply. The revolution of the mind as you speak is the only way to move beyond that animal instinct. Unfortunately, history has shown that this is temporary. Even the best democratic republics are eventually corrupted by the same animal instincts that rise up and eventually destroy it. Human history is littered with examples of great societies that rose and fell. Now is no different.

In America, homeless serfs are already being swepted away to FEMA camps.

We've said that in the South for quite a few years now. Note to Ukrainians : So far it hasn't worked.

SAT 800's picture

The Ukrainians have a special way of saying "go Home". They only say it once; then the talking part is done. Ask a survivor from the SS Panzer Division that was supposed to just run over the Ukraine in WW11. But how does an un-armed civilian population resist a Panzer Division? Simple you steal their weapons and ammunition from their corpses and use them. But it's not exactly, easy.

Panarchism = freedom of choice in government.

The opposite of the total sham called democracy and its controlled voting.

Skateboarder's picture

It's another one of life's ultimate ironies to not realize that forced submission to one system is slavery, even if 'choices' are allowed within that one system.

Being unable to choose governance makes you chattel. Why people rebel against this fact can be attributed to education and programming.

Matt's picture

You had me, right up until "without being forced to move from their current locale". How in the world can you have a government with millions of fragmented jurisdictions all over the world, without soveriegn access?

Anusocracy's picture

There are already "fragmented jurisdictions all over the world".

There would be many, many more and they would have much less control.
