I would be very wary of anything RT put out. Throughout this conflict they have really

towed the Kremlin line. Its a great show to understand the Kremlin viewpoint. Peter Lavelle

hosts a show called Crosstalk where he and three others give their view on a subject. This is a three against one

argument everytime.

Try these ones, may be more revealing:


From observer007's given link about the leaked email, i represent it here as Klitschko's story is tightly knitted to Nuland's "Fuck the EU" saga!


Ukraine: Anonymous Publishes Klitschko Emails


Read the email leak along with below information on Nuland's famous line "Fuck the EU", one should be able to understand how the Russian feels today...


US-EU Clash on How to Install a Puppet Regime in Ukraine. Victoria Nuland | Global Research

Yesterday’s leak of the flagrant telephone talk between the US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and the US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey R. Pyatt has already hit the international media headlines. In short, it turned out that the US officials were coordinating their actions on how to install a puppet government in Ukraine. They agreed to nominate Bat’kyvshchina Party leader Arseniy Yatseniuk as Deputy Prime Minister, to bench Udar Party leader Vitaly Klitschko off the game for a while and to discredit neo-Nazi Svoboda party chief Oleh Tiahnybok as “Yanukovych’s project”. Then Mrs. Nuland informed the US Ambassador that the Washington’s hand by the UN Secretary General, Under-Secretary for Political Affairs Jeffrey  Feltman had already instructed Ban Ki-moon to send his special envoy to Kyiv this week “to glue the things”. Touching the European role in managing Ukraine’s political crisis, she was matchlessly elegant: “Fuck the EU”.

In a short while, after nervious attempts to blame Russians in fabricating (!) the tape (State Department: “this is a new low in Russian tradecraft”), Mrs. Nuland brought her apologies to the EU officialsDoes it mean that the Washington’s repeatedly leaked genuine attitude towards the “strategic Transatlantic partnership” is much worthy of apology than the direct and clear interference into the internal affairs of a sovereign state and violation of the US-Russia-UK agreement (1994 Budapest memorandum) on security assurances for Ukraine?  Meanwhile this document inter alia reads as follows:

The United States of America, the Russian Federation, and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, reaffirm their commitment to Ukraine, in accordance with the principles of the CSCE Final Act, to respect the Independence and Sovereignty and the existing borders of Ukraine.

The United States of America, the Russian Federation, and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, reaffirm their obligation to refrain from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of Ukraine, and that none of their weapons will ever be used against Ukraine except in self-defense or otherwise in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations.

The United States of America, the Russian Federation, and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, reaffirm their commitment to Ukraine, in accordance with the principles of the CSCE Final Act, to refrain from economic coercion designed to subordinate to their own interest the exercise by Ukraine of the rights inherent in its sovereignty and thus to secure advantages of any kind.

Back to the latest Mrs. Nuland’s diplomatic collapse made public,  it is hardly an unwilling and regretful fault. Andrey Akulov from Strategic Culture Foundation has published a brilliant report (Bride at every weddingPart I and Part II) a couple of days ago depicting a blatant lack of professionalism and personal intergity of Mrs. Nuland. He described in details her involvement in misinforming the US President and nation on the circumstances of the assasination of the US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens in Benghazi in September 2012 and her support of the unlawful US funding of a number of the Russian “independent” NGOs seeking to bring a color revolution to Russia.

Her diplomatically unacceptable behavior on the Ukrainian track, which culminated on YouTube this week (video and full transcript are available below), suggests that Mrs. Nuland is perhaps a wrong person in a wrong position for protecting American interests in Eurasia.

anybody catch Dr Paul Craig Roberts interview on Ukraine..

Obama regime change EPIC FAIL...

Roberts explains that Washington supported a coop with moderates to get Ukraine into Nato, however, the coop was co-opted by ultranationalistic (nazi) thugs who now control it with threat of violence..  The US sponsored coop backfired and installed a bunch of thugs… Russia is moving in to protect its citizens in Western Ukraine...

Might want to add this for our Israeli friends on that list.  I think those "blue helmets" need to lead the offensive to Crimea to show their appreciation to the EU and U.S.

Show us how it's done boyz!

The Kiev revolutionaries had plenty of foreign mercinaries. Funded by the USA's CIA. From all over the world, plenty of ex US military working as private contractors for the CIA. If caught, they can deny being part of the US Miltiary or Intelligence. Snipers especially are hired to get a body count to enrage the crowds and public. I'de say half the gunshot deaths were paid snipers sent by the CIA. They have used that trick in other colored revolutions. Maybe even more than 1/2, perhaps most deaths were white on white to get maximum political effect. A very old and useful trick.

I think I've raised this one before, but if we have balck ops providing "skills" inside Ukraine they've got what's coming to them including "non-enemy combatant" status should they be captured.

If the United States threw out the Geneva and their own 'UCMJ' in our "war on terror" after 9/11 it's a "free for all", and we have nobody to blame but ourselves! Wouldn't want to be the American Special Ops guy on the receiving end no matter how much money they've been promised!

Great link Nemo! +100.  What gives Putin confidence to defend Crimea and East/South Ukraine from US invasion? S-400. Russia will put these into postions allowing maximum freedom of movement and give them each a TOR M2 defense system to shoot down NATO missiles and smart bombs trying to kill S-400 systems. Also Russia will send many decoy trucks with fake sheet metal and plastic launchers and radars, look like S-400, drive like S-400 but are fakes to draw NATO airstikes away from real systems. Sheet metal and plastic are cheap, and save a lot of losses to actual missile systems. Crimea submarines are probably deployed silent on the bottom of the Black Sea,

NATO's no fly zone gambit is a non starter. Ha! Ha! This ain't Afghanistan with AK equipped Taliban and armed goats.

To recap:
Putin was given permission to use the army by the Council of Federation. It was later confirmed that such permission was given based on false information that there were victims among Russian citizens in Crimea. Russian consulate in Crimea confirmed that there were actually no victims, and that situation was pretty much stable and under control. So, while he has the permission to use the army, Putin is still in "wait and see" mode.

As for so called "russian forces" in Crimea, they were declared such by journalists, based on the fact that their trucks had "russian licence plates", or based on conversaton with armed men in uniform without insignia, or that there was a russian flag painted somewhere on APC. So far, no one, including US State Department, could confirm from independent sources that there really are russian armed forces present on Ukrainian soil (I mean beyond the city of Sebastopol, where Russia has a naval base).

This looks to me more and more like a fart in an echo chamber. It not only reverberates, but stinks too. Mass media report what they think they saw, politicans react to mass media reports, creating vicious circle of sabre rattling. People get scared, too, demanding that politicans take action.

Lets now turn off the news, and think logically. Why would Putin invade Ukraine? There is absolutely nothing to be gained from such action. Such action would be a complete waste of human lives, time and money. Why would anyone invade a bankrupt country? To take responsibility and pay its bills? C'mon, no one is that stupid.

Of course, this is only my opinion, based on my belief that people take rational and logical decisions. Maybe there is something to be gained for Russia by invading Ukraine, but I don't see it.

So why not send the Israelis into Syria now?

Here Vlad, you want Crimea, we'll swap one naval base for it.

Urkraine mobilizes for war, calls up reserves


(Reuters) - Ukraine mobilized on Sunday for war and called up its reserves, after Russian President Vladimir Putin threatened to invade in the biggest confrontation between Moscow and the West since the Cold War.

Ukraine's security council ordered the general staff to immediately put all armed forces on highest alert, the council's secretary Andriy Parubiy announced. The Defense Ministry was ordered to conduct the call-up, potentially of all men up to 40 in a country that still has universal male conscription.

Russian forces who have already bloodlessly seized Crimea - an isolated Black Sea peninsula where most of the population are ethnic Russian and Moscow has a naval base - tried to disarm the small Ukrainian contingents there on Sunday. Some Ukrainian commanders refused to give up weapons and bases were surrounded.

Of potentially even greater concern are eastern swathes of the country, where most of the ethnic Ukrainians speak Russian as a native language. Those areas saw violent protests on Saturday, with pro-Moscow demonstrators hoisting flags at government buildings and calling for Russia to defend them.


Putin's declaration that he has the right to invade his neighbor - for which he quickly received the unanimous approval of his parliament - brought the prospect of war to a country of 46 million people on the ramparts of central Europe.

I'm not sure Putin can back down here.

He's imprisoned scores of political oppenents at home...sen out the orders to his troops...those orders have been carried out "and those kids have live ammo."

One dead Russian and I think we're all in here...

Somebody is going to blow up a pipe and Putin either shuts the taps, or goes in to fix and protect it and others -  perfectly valid responses to terrorism either way.

I would be more worried about this;

First shot heard around the country ?
Will it be the start of the battle in the republic?.......With arms.

Some may say come and take it.

Are you really sure you want to do this?
