As Russian Troops In The Ukraine Hit 16,000, US Department Of Defense Orders Them To Go Home

Tyler Durden's picture




 

While it has gotten to the point where the propaganda is so bad on both sides of the Ukraine crisis, that any numbers thrown about are ridiculous, made up gibberish more fabricated than anything the Chinese Department of Truth or US Bureau of Labor can possibly goalseek, it is worth pointing out that according to AP, Ukraine's ambassador to the UN said 16,000 Russian troops are now deployed in the Ukraine. This was "revealed" at the third emergency Security Council session meeting in the last four days, shortly after Ukraine's fugitive president requested Russian soldiers in the strategic Crimea region "to establish legitimacy, peace, law and order," Russia's U.N. ambassador said Monday, contradicting the president's own comments last week.

However, while Russian hypocrisy is to be expected - after all they are the "Evil Empire" to quote a famous actor and president - it is the humor from the self-appointed moral watchdog of all the world's evils, the US, that was the highlight of today's UN session:

 U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power dismissed Moscow's contention that it intervened militarily in Crimea to protect the human rights of Russian civilians there as "baseless," insisting there is no evidence of any threats against ethnic Russians in Ukraine.

 

"One might think that Moscow has just become the rapid response arm of the High Commissioner for Human Rights," she told the council. "Russian military action is not a human rights protection mission."

Speaking of high commissioners for human rights, at least Russia never invaded a country using made up WMDs as pretext, and did not almost launch World War III to satisfy a nat gas-rich ally over a fabricated YouTube clip. Oh, and all that "innocent civilian casualty" drone stuff too.

So what does the world's most irrelevant organization do? They send in monitors:

  • OSCE MONITORS TO BE DEPLOYED TO CRIMEA TONIGHT, POWER SAYS
  • POWER CALLS ON RUSSIA TO ENSURE OSCE NOT BLOCKED IN CRIMEA
  • CHURKIN SAYS RUSSIA SUPPORTS UN OFFICIAL'S VISIT TO UKRAINE
  • CHURKIN DECLINES TO COMMENT IF RUSSIA SUPPORTS OSCE MISSION

Well, monitors did miracles during the Yugoslav war, maybe they will "work" this time too.

But the piece de resistance, regardless if the real number of Russian troops in the Ukraine is 1,000 or 100,000, was the following:

  • DOD CALLS ON RUSSIAN FORCES IN CRIMEA TO RETURN TO THEIR BASES

Wait, so the US Department of Defense, that of the United States if it was somehow unclear, suddenly has authority to control the troops... of Russia?

One wonders: did the US Department of Education tell Gazprom to maintain gas supplies to Germany no matter how many CIA agents are operating in Kiev?

Or did ACORN tell whoever is the current pre-countercoup Ukraine president to hike minimum wages?

Or maybe the Department of Justice is quietly trying to collect its Fedex guns sent "erroneously" to Ukraine mercenaries, having confused them with Mexican drug lords?

Whatever the confusion, we are confident that following this latest "escalation" in the US response narrative, that Russia will promptly CTRL-Z everything it has done in the Ukraine in the past two weeks, and say it was only kidding.

* * *

Tangentially, while it has been made abundantly clear just how terrified Russia is of NATO, of Europe and of the US, for an indication of what China thinks of the latter, the WSJ reports the following:

The departing U.S. ambassador to China, Gary Locke inspired mixed reactions during his two-and-a-half-year tenure. Though his unpretentious manner was widely praised, as the first American of Chinese descent to hold the job, criticism of him had a special bite... The state-run China News Service... published a derisive editorial late last week (in Chinese) that described Mr. Locke as “a banana, with yellow skin and a white heart.”

Because when America respects itself and its symbolic headpiece, the president, so very much how can the rest of the world not follow?

U.S.Department of Defense orders Russian Troops to withdraw or else U.S. Military will do this again-

http://theweek.com/article/index/257285/speedreads-gay-and-lesbian-troop...

- Gay and lesbian troops perform in drag on American military base -

Troops based at the Kadena Air Base in Japan know how to party. On Saturday, six gay and straight service members applied some of their finest makeup and lip synced to "I Wanna Dance with Somebody" in what is believed to be first drag queen and king show on an American military base. The show was thrown in support for the base's recently formed OutServe-SLDN chapter, a nonprofit advocacy group for the army's LGBT community.

Navy Lt. Marissa Greene told Stars and Stripes she only expected to sell 75 tickets for the variety show, but ended up selling more than 400 in ten days. The event went through the same approval process as other on-base fundraisers go through, with the only caveat being that it was not allowed to be labeled a "drag show" in its publicity materials. The show was warmly received by spectators, who rocked out to performances by the likes of Manny Nuff and Chocolate Sunrise ("a crowd favorite," the website notes.)

Just a few years ago, performances like these would have been grounds for a possible discharge. The repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell has made it possible for events like this to occur. --Jordan Valiantly

Picture the scene, as Russian troops drop their weapons and wander off in an easterly direction.

 

"Oi you," shouts an officer. "Where the fuck d'you think you're going?"

 

"Sorry to say goodbye, captain,' says one of the passing troops, "but you see, the thing is, there is a higher authority involved. The United States Department of Defense has "called on" us to return to our bases. So that's where we are going. I'm sure you understand."

 

Just imagine -- that exact scene is being played out at various locations across Crimea AT THIS VERY MOMENT.

I once had a Vietnam vet pour his heart out to me. High school football star, went off to war. Came back and the VA offered him a choice of drugs. Many more drugs and a two day PCP coma, extreme homelessness, and twelve DUIs later, he was chatting with me at a local picnic area in the hills. He was screaming "I FUCKED UP! I FUCKED UP!" to me one point in the conversation. bigPharm can fuck you up worse than any war.

The best way to use the military to your own gains is to never get sent to overseas combat but end up with some bullshit "disability" discharge like one of my neighbors after about 12 years served in the Air Force after attending the AF Academy- he gets a fucking awesome pension, insurance for his family, even a handicapped parking pass( he thinks that is hilarious)and the fucker does all kind of strenuous physical activities w/ no problem. He owns a "disabled vet contracting company" and gets a shitload of VA business steered his way.

How many children of rich familes or politicians die or are mamed for their flag? Being mamed or killed is a monopoly held by poor and middle class kids. Let's not blame the drugs administered by the VA for a soldier or vet to want to kill himself...just ask Smedley Butler, he'll tell you why.

Putin's adviser on economics Sergei Glazyev said :
- Russia will abandon the dollar.
- And also Russia will create its currency system , together with China and other countries.
- And also Russia will abandon all public U.S. Treasuries.
- And also Russia will refuse to return any U.S. loans .
- And also Russia will arrest all assets of the United States and the West.
- And also Russian will stop all Russian oil and gas supplies to Europe. Oil and gas from Russia will go to China.
- And also Russia already has banned the import of meat from the United States.

Goodbye dollar, hello gold. Goodbye to the United States and the West, hello China and East.

False flag to launch WWIII, or civil war in US to unleash DHS, CIA, NSA, FEMA, etc, is unlikely unless things get much much worse then they are now. Plus one other fact. If the plan is to make 0zer0 the fall guy, then you must have the Strongman ready to take 0zer0's place when you launch the NWO. There is no Strongman on the next 1-2 year horizon, so they can't be ready to launch the plan. PS - Hillary aint the Strongman.

In order for people to have jobs, they have to destroy the currency. If they maintain the integrity of the currency, people are destroyed.

American parents who allow their children to join the usurper's military are guilty of child abuse.   I had a relative and told them and their kid that they would be out of their minds to join O's military.   The kid got a job and worked his way through college in 3 years and started a business.

I really wonder what it's like living in the west right now.  I'm seeing a constant barrage of media propaganda leaking through, and that's annoying enough as it is.  Can't even imagine how fucked it must be to be inside of that echo-chamber of bullshit.

Here's the difference: In China, sure, media is tightly controlled and virtually all of it is state owned.  However, being that there is a clear line that is set on issues, journalists generally try to dance on that line.  Everyone knows this is the case.  There might be some spin on issues, and issues may be ignored, but they don't just make shit up and lie, as lies are easily countered.  Even moreso as the US would *love* to degrade Party legitimacy by touting those lies.  There's also a variety of news.  If some spin is just so absurd that an editor would be choking on his own vomit to spew it, the issue is just ignored.  You see this happen where a story is run in one paper and not in any of the others.  The talking heads tend to be neutral on mostly everything international, as the focus for spin is mainly domestic.  Most are quite distrustful of the news, but it's still useful to gain insight on government stances.

 

In the US: It's all corporate-controlled and the tiny bit which is not, is an absolute joke.  It's all about profit, and the best way to ensure profit is to parrot the US government line and be nothing more than a mouthpiece.  They all buy into it hook line and sinker, as going against the grain is a great way to be barred from access and picked apart to destroy a career.  The talking heads put a spin on everything.  The best, closest thing to a legitimate news source in the US is the fucking daily show, a comedy show, and even then, when it's time to fire up the yellow press, they fall right in line as viacom calls the shots.  Idiots actually believe it all, hook line and sinker.  Regardless of the channel, the message is all the same, just a mild variance on the spectrum.  Did you care to notice all the hit pieces on Putin leading up to this? Quite a bit of it wholecloth manifestations or excessive spin.  Gotta have a "bad guy" here obviously.  Crying about "gay rights" in Russia, and not bothering to see what actual Russians thought of it, when the only ban was on being in everyone's faces about in who and where you park your dick at night... keeping that away from kids.  The HORROR.  Gotta have a bad guy or make one up.

 

For China, I'm going to flat out ignore anything pre-1980, as that was a significant year in terms of national change.  Since then, how many wars has China started? How many countries has it invaded? How many times has it directly or indirectly threatened others with nuclear holocaust?  How many times has it slapped crippling sanctions on another nation to meet political goals?  None, not even once.  The propaganda in China might rile up the masses to protest Japan or the US now and again, but that's it.

For the US, it's probably easier to count the cases where they *didn't* do such thing, and with the media gleefully locked in goose-step the entire time to lie over and over again that it is "moral" or "just" or "right".  Yellow sackless mouthpiece limpwristed media afraid to have any opinion on anything that matters apart from the one their government minders spell out for them.  So many flat out LIES, and never bothering to correct them.  You have an entire brigade of "journalists" and talking heads who will root for war in all cases, I mean, afterall, it allows them to continue having access and it enriches their MIC masters of course.

Most Americans do not even knw where the Ukraine is located in the world map!  I would make a stab at stateing most Americans would not know the difference if you switched Russia and China on a world globe.  We are too busy teaching ourchildren how to raise their children at 13 and English as a second language.  You must learn how to use social media and a smart phone.  The remain classes these days are all about social issues and how our government is there to take care of you.

Journalism is a joke to be honest.  I check the weather and turn news off.  Depending on what channel you turn too it is nothing more then a political view handed to the anchor by his or her masters.  You are now hired based on your political views and looks.  If you deviate from the channels agenda your out the door.

Fuck the EU, - oh wait we didn't mean Fuck the EU we were just playin' y'all; - I mean really Vlad played the idiot Mr Ed and his retard like a fiddle over Syria so they move to plan B distract Vlad via Ukraine and take another run at Syria - the need to establish the energy corridor to europe is becoming critical for these asshats.  I wonder what would happen if they ever actually obeyed international law.  These DC assholes are so quick to talk about the rule of law - that they make up as they go along mind you - but they are so quick to ignore international laws that run contrary to thier goals/interests.  Fuck me you can't even get GM labels on food products around here........ oh yes it's a show man..... just a sad and yet almost comic tragedy

Their central bank just lifted rates, sanctions would attack the Rouble, it's a good play.  Cept UK takes a hit and so does Germany on business/investment getting pulled, oil/gas/wheat prices spike.   If the EU dumps Ukraine in Obama's lap...he won't do anything.  Vlad will eye the smaller countries that were once under the commie banner.

really?

what did Estonia do?

I mean "what is Vlad advancing on"...besides "all of Europe"?
With 16,000 on the ground here I think we can skip past the "sanctions" talk now. This really is going to be a full fledged Russian Invasion.

Ummm..."you're kicking over millions of tombstones" here.
This is the place from whence soldiers don't get to come home and tell everyone what a mess they are.

I do agree it's probably too late to tell the Russians to "return to base" (since they still haven't made it on to the Ukrainian Bases yet.) I do think a call for "don't start something you can't finish" is in order here however.

This is the Heart of Europe....and we're talking a naked aggression here and Kiev Rus.
We haven't had this since 1945.
I think a call for Russia to "stand down" here is an absolute necessity.
These Russian kids do not know why they are there.
I can see that already...and so can every other war correspondent.
"It only gets worse from here."

This may have started already and what i say here may already be too late...it's hard to tell...but clearly we are not "de-escalating" here.
Nor is Putin's Regime laying out demands or asking for changes...or in any way saying they are under threat or that anyone else is either. In other words NO PRETEXT.

There is an existing European Order that has been in existence for almost 70 years that is about to annihilated for no apparent reason here.
Obviously full scale retaliation is on the table...as "the old rules apply here."

I don't think placing an "or else" demand on the table now is unwarranted. we're well past "red lines" at this point. costs already total hundreds of billions. "you have staging area...now we will have staging area too."

this is a poor, defenseless country. "do not lose control of the situation" Mother Russia. "otherwise we will get to the capital of Kiev first."

the US Secretary of State visits tomorrow.

Absolutely.  It's got NOTHING to do with NATO encircling Russia, seen how big that f*cking country is?  How can you not encircle it.  Vlad is just reclaiming old ground, he will test EU and Germany resolve. 

I mean if you think about it Vlad is the one who will break up the EU, not the PIIGS.  Smaller countries like Estonia (EU, as an example) must be fretting.

Cold war is coming back in full effect.
