Meanwhile In Socialist Utopia...

Remember: in every socialist utopia, at the end of the day, everyone is equal... while waiting in line for "whatever they have."

Breaking... US Blaackwater Boots Spotted In Ukraine....

They Look Like Came Straight From IRAQ Same Garb...

Has Blackwater been deployed to Ukraine?

Notorious U.S. mercenaries 'seen on the streets of flashpoint city' as Russia claims 300 hired guns have arrived in country Unidentified armed men seen on the streets of Donetsk in east Ukraine Russian diplomat claims 300 mercenaries had arrived in Kiev this week Mercenaries in the region could give Putin pretext for military action Donetsk has been the scene of big pro-Russian demonstrations this week

By Damien Gayle

Speculation was growing last night that American mercenaries had been deployed to Donetsk after videos emerged of unidentified armed men in the streets of the eastern Ukrainian city. At least two videos published on YouTube earlier this week show burly, heavily armed soldiers with no insignia in the city, which has been gripped by pro-Moscow protests. In one of the videos onlookers can be heard shouting 'Blackwater! Blackwater!' as the armed men, who wear no insignia, jog through the streets.

That looks like Russian gear.  The video is too shaky to make out much clearly.  One guy certainly has an AK.  Another looks like it might be an M4 but it isn't clear.  Using 556 in that area would be stupid - no resupply. 

Moar information, pics, and/or video please.

"Has Blackwater been deployed to Ukraine?"

Or Xe or what the fuck ever.

No offense is intended by this, but why on earth would we assume they just got there? As in, don't you think they have been there all along? 

I do.

Where there is a buck to be made off war, count on these assholes to be helping to create the market for it, so to speak.

Fuckers.

No, actually there is nothing to buy because the socialist elites have bankrupted the country and have confiscated the country's wealth for themselves. The people of Venezuela suffer with an annual inflation rate above 56%. Meanwhile, Hugo Chavez's daughters continue to party in the presidential palace and refuse to move out.

@XenoFrog: "Coming to a country near you!"

Of course, that's what TPTB has already decided:  First Chaos, then Order (Ordo ab Chaos).

> Fragmentation of strong countries & cultures (via an "anything goes" culture)

> Increased National and Personal Debt --> Perpetual Debt

> Increased prices, stagnant wages

--> Unrest, Uprisings that call for Regime Change, and... a New Order. 

--> A World Order.  A New World Order* 

Your network of friendly Central Banksters are standing by and willing to help -- but you have to ask for their Help.

* Q: Is NWO a New-World (imposed) Order, or a New World-Order?  ;-)

It's not directed from the US (New World), just implemented through its guns, money printing and growing corporate monopolies.

Just to be pedantic, the Latin should read "ordo a Chao."  The word "Chaos" is Greek, and so is the concept: the Romans don't make much use of it outside of poetry until very late, when poetry starts creeping into prose (i.e. the Second Sophistic).  The poet Vergil uses the phrase "a Chao" in the fourth book of the Georgics ('farm poetry'):

aque Chao densos diuum numerabat amores. 

that is,

"From Chaos [the beginning of the world] he [Orpheus] recounted the frequent love-affairs of the gods."

The Masons seem to be the first people to have said "Ordo ab Chao," which should be written "Ordo a Chao," because the Masons aren't particularly good at Latin -- about on par with the Catholic Church, which is currently doing everything in its power to suck at it, including gutting and restaffing some of the institutions for using Latin.

The "novus ordo" stuff comes from Vergil too: "magnus ab integro saeclorum nascitur ordo" ("a great order of the ages is born anew," Eclogues (pastoral poetry) 4).  The original sense is of a cyclical view of time, similar to the cycles of governments found in Greek political philosophy: you go from overthrowing some sort of a tyrannical government through various better forms like democracy, until you get back to a tyranny again because succeeding generations or ages get progressively more lazy and accepting of injustice until things get bad enough for a revolution.  Of course, Vergil was applying it to Augustus, who was basically a tyrant overthrowing the Roman Republic, but that's fawning Roman poetry for you.

The problem with Venezuela is the same problem in the US: a majority of people actually thought socialism sounded like a reasonable choice. Some will regret their decision, others will double down.

There's nothing to buy, but at least its cheap. [/s]   The funny thing is that many of these idiots will not learn the lesson.  They will believe to the end that everything would be fine if only the enemies of the State would stop holding out on The People.

You would like to think we know better in America but, thanks to 50 years of leftist indoctrination, we no longer do.  Sadly, there are just as many in this country who drink the same class warfare Kool-aid.

Either that or they will blame the ruler(s) personally for being greedy or incompetent and turn around and put someone else in power who will do the same exact thing.

Such it is with the true believers of any religion.  Eutopia is never attained because the belief system is flawed.  It is never attained because everyone did not believe.  The reason the ghost dance failed was because every indian did not dance the dance.  The same excuse was given for the collapse of the Soviet Union.

If the idea must be imposed through the threat of violence, then the idea is flawed.

"there are just as many in this country who drink the same class warfare Kool-aid"

really?  there's no 0.1% off-shoring jobs and taking all the productivity gains of the last 40 years for themselves?   there's no elite that owns both parties and socializes their losses and privatizes their gains?   there's no "regulatory capture"?  no TBTF?  that's Koolaid?!?!? 

if you don't want socialism you better be a libertarian or an anarchist, cause "conservatives" are the siamese twins of liberals.  Down-arrow away and tell me how your vote counts.

I'm not saying Capitalism isn't without its warts, but it beats Socialism and Communism all to Hell.  If you think that there isn't a 0.1% in Venezula who can buy whateve they want, whenever they want, you are either a fool or a liar (or both).  At least the 0.1% here are smart enough to figure out how to keep the store shelves stocked.

I'm guessing the profit margins on TP are low, so shipping/logistics become too costly to turn a profit during periods of high inflation.  Just a guess.

Sometimes it's cheaper to buy currency to wipe your buttocks than it is to use currency to buy toilet paper.

Every command economy prints currency until it's cheaper than toilet paper.  Problem solved.
