Despite the ongoing efforts of the rest of the world to ignore what is rapidly escalating into a potential pivot point in global geopolitics, Ukraine has gone from bad to worse in the last few hours with 3 dead and hundreds injured:

  • *UKRAINE RIOT POLICE AMASS ON PERIMETER OF INDEPENDENCE SQUARE
  • *KIEV SUBWAY SYSTEM SHUT DOWN, INTERFAX SAYS
  • *UKRAINE OPPOSITION: ALL WOMEN SHOULD LEAVE INDEPENDENCE SQUARE
  • *UKRAINE RIOT POLICE DISMANTLING BARRICADES APPROACHING MAIDAN

The riot police have been told to 'impose order by all means envisaged' and it appears they are rapidly moving towards that goal.

Ukrainian security forces on Tuesday set protesters a 6 p.m. 1600 gmt) deadline to end street disturbances or face "tough measures", a statement said.

 

The State Security Service (SBU), in a joint statement with the interior ministry, said: "If by 6 p.m. the disturbances have not ended, we will be obliged to restore order by all means envisaged by law.

 

"If the disturbances continue we will be forced to resort to tough measures," it said.

 

The statement followed a day of violence in the Ukrainian capital Kiev as protesters clashed violently with police near the parliament building, with unconfirmed reports of three people being killed.

All we need is the first domino. It will probably come from somewhere unexpected. This might be it.

The world has always been full of injustice, pain and death.  And likely will be for at least hundreds of years more.  We cannot stop it.

The USA should keep its nose OUT of the Ukraine.

It is not our turf.  We would not like Russia monkeying around in Mexico.

Jefferson knew enough to fight tooth and nail again the establishment of Hamilton's First Bank of the United States.....( the forerunner of the Federal Reserve )....and when that failed he killed it  when he was elected President.

What is it with all the lame comments recently from short-time noob ZH members who've only been members for a few weeks?  Please, all ya'll go back to commenting on CNN, Huff Post, and CNBS.

Brzezinski-Soros gang funding the protesters so they can put in a pro-Western IMF / NATO puppet in charge of a very important geopolitical country like Ukraine. Brzezinski almost started World War III back in December 2004 during the Orange "revolution" with the possibility of the eastern part of the country seceding to the Russian Federation, and thus Polish NATO troops enter from the west and Russian troops from the east. These old oligarchs should back off while they still can with their dangerous destabilization operations in eastern Europe and even trying to get Georgia join NATO.

Speaking of biting the hand that feeds... just a few days after all detainees have been released.

The Zio-fuckers are really poised to light the fuse this time.

You forgot to include Fox and Townhall for the dopes on the so-called 'right/conservative' side of the spectrum.  A balance of stupidity, you know.

As American propagandist Bernays said/wrote:  'they' will manipulate the masses through the media while guiding them to 'think' (that is ape) whatever they've been told.

Jefferson was right . . .

but the application of his words in this case may be wrong.

Being captured by the banksters and losing sovereignty to the EU bureaucrats isn't 'liberty'.

Just ask the people from Greece and Spain.

"Tell all women to leave".......

What....you cowardly Russian cronies.....can't stomach the fact that you may kill some women....or maybe it's better image wise when you round up the men in concentration camps not to have women and or children in there as well?

I hope the Ukrainians tell that Stalinistic piece of shit Putin to go to hell. 

PeakOil's picture

Wish it was as simple as that, but alas it is not. No small amount of Al CIA-duh agitprop.

Jumbotron's picture

Hey....I'm not naive to believe there isn't some or a lot of "Murken agitprop.   Let's ALL get real here and know for a fact that the Cold War never ended.....it just went underground and became better camoflaged.

That said.....Putin can still go to hell.  And the Ukranians need to throw off that shackle.  No amount of agitprop can make up for the complete lack of desire of a people such as the Ukranians if that was the case.  The desire to be free of Putin's influence was already there and well established.

And if parts of the Ukraines want to suckle on Putin's hind tit some more.....fine.  Break the country up.  Let them do as they wish.  But  let the ones who want freedom have it.

And to hell with Putin.....if I haven't made myself perfectly clear before.

Obama is closer to being Stalin than Putin is:

"The Communists took over America after JFK was shot. American society then took a sharp nose dive into Hell. With the presidential elections rigged there was no stopping their agenda. Call it Marxism, Socialism, or Communism. It's all the same.

They want you to depend on the government instead of God. Welcome to the USSA
Therefore, only prayer and penance will lead America once again to that guiding light that governed the founding Fathers. Prayers can turn the tide of evil in the US and its chaotic effect in the world. May God bless America. Until then, only President Vladimir Putin can prevent America's military Democracy from destroying the world.

Putin in 2009 outlined his strategy for economic success. Alas, poor Obama did the opposite but nevertheless was re-elected. Bye, bye Miss American Pie. The Communists have won in America with Obama but failed miserably in Russia with Zyuganov who only received 17% of the vote. Vladimir Putin was re-elected as President keeping the NWO order out of Russia while America continues to repeat the Soviet mistake.

After Obama was elected in his first term as president the then Prime Minister of Russia, Vladimir Putin gave a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in January of 2009. Ignored by the West as usual, Putin gave insightful and helpful advice to help the world economy and saying the world should avoid the Soviet mistake."

Yes, only brave corporate stooges can indiscriminately bomb and exterminate unaffiliated women and children. For all the rest of us mortals, the thought of damaging precious Ukranian females is unbeararable and carries significant psychologycal costs we are not prepared to carry for the rest of our miserable drunken lives.

And people on ZH heard US neo-con officials comments about what people they were going to put in the Ukraine govt after they were successful didn't you ?

Or do you always assume 'protester = good'  and  'army/police = bad'  ?

Perhaps there's a lot more to the story.

As outsiders, we don't actually know what's happening on the ground, but there seems to be an ever repeating pattern that has been used around the world.

Everyone knows American Exceptionalism is based on the "undeniable" fact that America is the ONE & ONLY exception to the thousands of years of documented human history where the mob was an explicit and strategic tool of TPTB which was skillfully wielded to achieve various ends.

Or don't they include the long version of "bread and circus" and its many geographic variants in history books anymore?

Or Americans could just be exceptionally stupid...

Perhaps the socio-path/psycho-path neo-cons will pull us all into a 'game' even more interesting than dominoes.

Lets see . . . what if they completely surround Russia and China with anti-ballistic missile bases . . . how might those nations react?

Maybe they'll succeed in reducing the world's 'excess population' (according to them )  with thermo-nuclear World War III, yet.

Maybe March Madness is starting early in Kiev. Nothing like photos of blood in the streets to get the algos to panic. The cute little algos are programmed to read the news and believe it all, very convenient if you want them to ramp the BLS propanganda into alltime highs but when the occasional real news item hits the airwaves they get faint of heart.

*UKRAINE OPPOSITION: ALL WOMEN SHOULD LEAVE INDEPENDENCE SQUARE

 

I supported these guys, but seeing such blatant sexism in a group of supposed freedom fighters makes my blood boil. If they were the liberal, open minded progressives they like to portray themselves as, they would throw the women to the front lines and encourage them to get violent. But no, they tell the women to go back to the kitchen while the men fight for the future.

After Yugoslavia, Ukraine ?


by Thierry Meyssan

Public opinion in Western Europe is wrong to regard the Ukrainian crisis as a showdown between Westerners and Russians. In reality, Washington’s goal is not to push the country into the arms of the European Union, but to deprive Russia of its historical partners. To do this, the United States is prepared to ignite a new civil war on the continent.

Washington’s strategy in Ukraine would appear to be a combination of proven "color revolution" recipes with others recently concocted during the "Arab Spring" [4]. Moreover, the United States makes no effort to hide it: it dispatched two officials, Victoria Nuland (deputy to John Kerry) and John McCain (who is not only a Republican senator, but also the chairman of IRI, the Republican branch of the NED [5]) to support the protesters. Unlike Libya and Syria, Washington does not have jihadists on hand to sow chaos (except for Tatar extremists, but they are only located in Crimea). It was therefore decided to lean on the Nazis with whom the State Department worked against the Soviets and has organized in political parties since independence.

I find it hard to believe that Mclame and the rest believe they can create another Jugoslavia as part of some chess match with Putin.  I'm really sorry that Putin was not in power in the 90's those assholes would have never had a chance to turn Bosnia and Kosov into a muslim shithole.
