Ukraine's Military Releases The Armored Vehicles And Fighter Jets; Independence Square Is In Flames - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Ukraine's Independence Square is ablaze

 

Days after Kazakhstan broke out is tanks post-devaluation, the promise to "Restore order by all means envisaged" is under way in Ukraine as military vehicles are being mobilized into the city center (and fighter jets are being reported overhead). As Martin Armstrong so eloquently noted recently, "the Western powers represented by the EU and the US have nothing to stand on to protect Ukraine and can only offer lip-service at best. So once again, it appears that Ukraine is doomed and the best one can hope for there, is that Russia will allow the West to leave. The countdown goes forward and the political and economic crisis is indicative of what we see with the first shot across the bow in the rising trend of the Cycle of War." The US has 'demanded' an end to the violence...

 

Update:

  • *UKRAINE POLICE ATTACK DEMONSTRATORS WITH WATER CANONS ON MAIDAN
  • *POLICE MOVE IN ON OPPOSITION CAMP IN KIEV CENTER, AP SAYS
  • *UKRAINE POLICE FORCE ATTACKING INDEPENDENCE SQUARE FROM 3 SIDES
 

Via Voice Of Russia,

Two jet aircrafts, presumably military, have appeared over Maidan in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev, the mass media report.

One problem (one of many) with armored vehicles is that sooner or later you have to get out of them,  and then what?

An end to the violence LMAO Propaganda for the feeble minded. Obama's cohorts McShame and Soro's (orange revolution) got the violence started. Putin doesn't bend to their will and since it didn't work out then they are back at it.

@Chuck

The US could end the violence in about 24 hours.

 

You see Yanukovych and his cronies have all their stolen money sitting in European banks. They don't trust Putin too much or lets say they don't trust the Russian mob with their ill gotten gains. So all the US has to do is start twisting a few wrists in Europe and start seizing the billions of dollars these cock suckers stole.

Yanukovych's son is a Dentist. Some how on a dentists salary (150 USD a month) he was able to buy several Mobile Phone companies and a Bank. Who would have thought a Dentist could own a few billion dollars worth of businesses on $150 USD a month. Just like the ex prime ministers son has a cellar companies in Austria. Who would have thought these poor simple guys with little to no resources and education could have billions. Must be luck.

 

Go after their money and you'll see how fast these cunts beg for mercy.....

It's winter over hear, the cost of that move might add several dollars per gallon to the price of gas over in the US (and introduce the EU to a zombie apocalypse if they openly side with the US in the latest proxy war against Russia).

But given the stupidity I see on display in Brussels and Berlin, it's certainly not out of the realm of possibility.

Paul Craig Roberts

...A number of confirmations have come in from readers that Washington is fueling the violent protests in Ukraine with our taxpayer dollars.
Washington has no money for food stamps or to prevent home foreclosures, but it has plenty of money with which to subvert Ukraine.

One reader wrote: “My wife, who is of Ukrainian nationality, has weekly contact to her parents and friends in Zhytomyr [NW Ukraine]. According to them, most protesters get an average payment of 200-300 grivna, corresponding to about 15-25 euro. As I additionally heard, one of the most active agencies and ‘payment outlets’ on EU side is the German ‘Konrad Adenauer Stiftung’, being closely connected to the CDU, i.e. Mrs. Merkel’s party.”...

  You stay in it until every potential hostile threat has been neutralized. Nice to see they are taking out the trash over there.

  When it happens here it won't be sponsored by a foreign entity. It will be a true "homegown" uprising.

1 steel chain to wrap the drive train or axle $20
1 mapp gas torch and some cheap welding rods $40
4 liters petrol $10 (or ammonia and bleach if you prefer expectoration to conflagration, or plan to recycle the vehicle)

The look on the faces on the thug kids when they realize they aren't the law, and what war really is... priceless.

(And why no sane person who has been through it cares to do so again, or seriously disparages the actual methods employed in low level conflicts)

Revolution brothers!!!!

I wish these "peoples revolts" all over this planet, would finally get a clue and start realizing the solution to there problems are universally the same, their money is worthless and they are powerless because their productivity and wealth has been stolen from them!!!

The answer is of course simple, demand to be paid for your productivity in something that is not worthless!! That is the fucking revolution friends, fighting over who's fiat, toilet paper you are going to accept, is insanity!!

When "the people" start putting all their energy into THAT, that's a fucking revolution I'm getting behind! Until then, roll the tanks, don't roll the tanks, it doesn't matter!
