Ukraine Official Warns "Chance Of War With Russia Growing" As Mike Rogers Calls For Sending Weapons To Ukraine

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Concurrently with out post on what the odds are of a war between the US and Russia over Ukraine, the House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, and war hawk, appeared on TV this morning saying that the United States ought to provide weapons to the Ukrainian army "so it could defend the country from a Russian invasion." This is the same Mike Rogers who last August did everything in his power to perpetuate the lie that Syrians had used chemical weapons against "rebels" (who subsequently turned out to be mostly Qatari-funded Al Qaeda mercenaries and other Islamic extremists) “There are things that we can do that I think we’re not doing. I don’t think the rhetoric (from Obama administration officials) matches the reality on the ground,” he said.

Seemingly oblivious that all Russia desperately wants is further escalation in the conflict, which can then immediately be seen as a provocation for further incursions into either the Ukraine and/or other former Soviet counteries, Rogers said that, while ruling out the deployment of U.S. military forces in Ukraine, he called for sending small arms and radio equipment that the Ukrainian military could use to “protect and defend themselves. And I think that sends a very clear message."

Absolutely it does: the message it sends is that US foreign policy has just hit rock bottom in terms of game theoretical escalation cluelessness. At least in Syria someone put some effort in fabricating YouTube videos and at least putting together a media campaign demonizing Assad. And still failed.

More from NBC:

Speaking from Tblisi, the capital of Georgia, a country that Russian forces invaded in 2008, Rogers said on NBC’s Meet the Press that the Ukrainians “passionately believe” that Russian President Vladimir Putin “will be on the move again in Ukraine, especially in the east.”

 

He said both Ukrainian and U.S. intelligence officials “believe that Putin is not done in Ukraine. It is very troubling. He has put all the military units he would need to move into Ukraine on its eastern border and is doing exercises.”

 

If Putin orders Russian forces into the Baltic nations of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania – which are NATO member states and which the United States is obligated by the NATO treaty to defend -- then “we (will) have allowed people who want to be free, who want to be independent, who want to have self-determination, and we’ve turned our back and walked away from them.”

 

In an apparent allusion to the seizure of Czechoslovakia which was a prelude to Hitler’s invasion of Poland in 1939, Rogers added, “The world did that once – and it was a major catastrophe.”

The full clip:

 

And while US neocons are warmongering, Ukraine is all too happy to raise the tension level just a bit more, hoping that NATO will finally intervene and present Putin with at least some hurdle to overrunning all of East Ukraine, using exactly the same template as already show in Crimea. From WSJ:

Ukraine’s top diplomat warned Sunday that the chances of war with Russia “are growing” due to the buildup of Moscow’s forces along his country’s eastern border. In an interview with ABC’s “This Week,” acting Ukrainian Foreign Minister Andrii Deshchytsia said Kiev “is ready to respond” should Russia–which has already seized the Crimea–move further in Ukrainian territory.

 

The situation is becoming even more explosive than it was a week ago,” Mr. Deshchytsia said.

 

He said Ukraine’s first approach to the Russian threat on the frontier would be diplomatic. But, he said, “people are also ready to defend their homeland.”

Meanwhile, Putin is sitting back in his chair and smiling, since everything so far continues to unwind precisely according to his plan.

This is the dumbest, most juvenile, and foolish posture to take.

Comparing Putin to Hitler and Russia to the Nazi's is not only ass backwards but a grevious insult to the Russian people.  Stupidity whipped with insanity and ego.

And from Tblisi, in Georgia!?  Talk about shoving a stick in the hornets nest.

"I do not feel obliged to believe that same God who endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect had intended for us to forgo their use." -- Galileo

The illegitimate, unelected government in Kiev is attempting to solidify its control over the ethnic Russians who live in Ukraine because they are the Ukrainians most likely to keep Ukraine out of the clutches of the European Central Bankers.

So, Tyler, not Rogers, is correct in that the Russian troops are there if civil war breaks out in those Eastern Ukrainian cities; and you can be sure that Putin will not back down from protecting his flank; he’d be a fool to do so.

Mike Rogers could be the poster-child of all those who "know" that World War 1 was started as result of assassination of Archduke Ferdinand at Sarajevo.

Europe's royal families  were integrated by hundreds of years of intermarriage that promoted secret treaties and territorial arrangements and understandings. Such are the usual activities of all privileged classes seeking to maintain their status, or "security" .  Ferdinands death setoff the domino-effect of those mostly secret and even ancient arrangements.

NATO is the hair-trigger that can set the world ablaze as, for example, when a 5-foot 135-pound wannabe Napolean is covertly pushed [by a megalomaniac and clever rich-uncle]  to attack an elephant. Or a bear.

I lived through the last decade of the cold war, with the iron curtain practically in my backyard here in Europe.

From first hand experience I can tell you that's frightening and it really doesn't matter who's missiles they are.

For now it looks -as so often in the past- Russia is not looking for war, the west is. Putin's 'popularity' here, is problably because a lot of us have had it with our current leadership.

II disagree with your statement. The way I see it is after the iron curtain came down the majority of countries went running to NATO. They knew what Russian aggression is. Ukraine has a bad history with Russia including mass starvation and murdering of Ukrainians by Russians. Why would Ukraine not want to go to the EU and NATO? Especially now, after the takeover of Crimea by the Russian military? Ukraine is not Russia's pawn. To say Russia is not looking for war, the west is... is kind of ridiculous in my opinion. SInce the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia has invaded Chechnya twice, south ossetia and abkazhia and now Crimea. I don't see what stops Russia other than Nato from going further West.

I could agree with that, but :

1) They were offered some bribe or just plainly forced into it by economic means e.g.

2) There was also a substantial amount of collaboration with the Nazi's in a lot of these countries, hence the brutal Soviet oppression. (We don't seem to mind working with fascists anyway, not now and not after WW II)

3) I've spoken to people who lived under soviet rule; they never mention it until I bring it up and most of them speak and think balanced about this. (But some of them did experience horrible things)

I would say it was an inhumane system, but let's not make the same mistakes just because we have bigger guns.

First, the English language.

Flag wavers are NOT "just Patriots". The terminology "flag wavers" is used to connote those who are chauvinists and jingoists.

Second, instead of generalizations about "bad guys" everywhere, examine the specifics of this particular case. In this case of Ukraine, the US is clearly in the wrong, from needlessly expanding NATO, to supporting a coup overthrow of an elected government, to making unreasonable demands and threats, and recently implementing counter-productive "sanctions".

the US and NATO are the only things that stopped the Soviets from taking control of all of Europe after WW2. Russia has always been expansionist historically. I don't see how the U.S is the bad guy here. The Ukrainians were promised that they would join the EU and in the last minute yanukovich backed out and said he made a pact with Russia. That's over a decade of work and a bad history to go with it, of course the Ukrainian people are not interested in going back to Russia. It's a third world country. Poland in the EU has made explosive economic developments, in the late 90s the Polish economy was even worse than Ukraines. Now Poland is head and shoulders over Ukraine. The EU may not be perfect but much better than the Russian Gulag.

"Because there are a bunch of RT fanboys on here who grew up sheltered in the U.S and have no idea what the outside world really is."

Really? I know exactly what the outside world looks like. After returning to SE Asia in 1999-2000 to help with demining and UXO operations I saw first hand exactly what it looked like after America got through with it. I saw first hand what American interventionism looks like and what its military does. I saw it first hand in 1977 in Bushehr, Iran when I spoke to Iranians who had nothing but nice things to say about Americans but had nothing but disdain for the American government that overthrew its democratically elected government in 1953. America created Saddam Hussein, the Shah of Iran, Al Qaeda and the Taliban, supports the monarchy in Saudi Arabia. It tries to force countries to trade in in dollars rather than their own or some other currency. Putin is a turd but so is the leadership in this country. America would be better served by keeping its nose out of other peoples business because when it does all it does is fuck things up. You hope that Ukraine joins the EU and NATO? Sure, why not go from the frying pan into the fire?

Who the fuck is Mike Rogers?

In November 30, 2011 Congressman Rogers introduced the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA).[9] "The bill would allow the government to share all of its classified cyber-security knowledge with private companies, forming knowledge-sharing agreements that would hopefully keep China (and other countries and hackers) out of American computer networks. The catch is that the information shared is a two-lane street—companies would also be allowed to share private data with the federal government, provided there is a reasonable "cyber threat.""[10] "In the current version, most personal information would be stripped from data shared with the government, and the bill no longer defines intellectual property theft as something relating to national security "We think we're making huge progress with the privacy groups, so they understand what we're trying to accomplish, which isn't anything nefarious," Rogers said"[11]

Rogers has reaffirmed his support for the NSA's programs, stating on October 30, 2013, "You can't have your privacy violated if you don't know your privacy is violated."

who the fuck wrote this?  "U.S. neocons are warmongering"????

Gotta call bullshit on that statement.  And this isn't about "Left/Right" and all that bullshit.  But the Marxist in Chief, the fucktard John Kerry, and the Hilda-beast Clinton aren't exactly "neocons", are they? 

Let's put the whole fake right/left paradigm farse to bed once and for all for fuck's sake, ok?  These people with R's and D's next to their names are just representing 2 heads of the same monster.

They're on the side of the NWO globalists who really run the show.  But at least people who are Libertarian, Constitutionalist conservatives who believe in America going back to our originally intended Republic are more on the "Right" side and we're the ones who kept obama, Kerry, McCain and the rest of the full-retards in D.C. from bombing the fuck out of Syria.

And it's pretty much only us who are keeping them from going full-retard against Russia as well.  But if you ask the cult followers of the "Left" they either still don't have a clue what's going on with Russia or think that any crime their dear leader obama commits is totally fine as long as it gets them goodies, and they could give a shit about the outcome for this country.

At least the "TEA" party Libertarians are engaged in what's really going on and are trying to stop these fucking sociopaths on BOTH sides of the aisle from destroying us economically or by continued wars that don't and shouldn't concern us at this time.

How in the fuck is this whole thing all of a sudden the blame of so-called "neocons" implying that the "Right" is causing all of this shit??? 

Give me a fucking break.  The inmates are running the cesspool asylum of Washington D.C. and they come in all forms.  But they're all criminal sociopaths and traitors and need to be removed and tried for treason for starters. 

Whoever wrote that junk above should have just said it's all George Bush's fault...or called us all "racist" warmongerers, or any of the other bullshit they call the only sane people in this country who are trying to prevent it's total collapse.

There is no "right" or "left" anymore.  As far as I'm concerned, it's US against THEM.  The chasm is too wide now.  There should be no more "compromise" and constant giving in to the Marxists who have pulled off this silent coupe against America on behalf of their globalist leaders who want to see America fully destroyed.

It does not good to debate with sociopaths and traitors at this point.  They're all criminals no matter what letter they put next to their fucking names and Americans need to treat them as such.  The scum in D.C. are frauds, imposters, murderers, theives, traitors, and psychos nearly top to bottom.

I'd bet that less than 10% are there for the right reasons to save this country and I feel for them having to wade through the scum of that swamp day in and day out dealing with the swamp creatures they're surrounded by.

So get it straight...this isn't going to be pinned on the Left side or the Right side solely.  The scum of D.C. are one side.  Most of the good Americans are the other side. 

That's who we need to blame and to fight.  We don't need to fight these false wars with Russia, Syria or Iran for fuck's sake.

If you can get to liberty after deposing a tyrant then yeah, a little anarchy on the way is worth the price, hell it's necessary. But how many revolutions lead to installation of a tyrant who's even worse than the last guy? Most of them! The most violent revolutionaries are the most probable new leaders (like Svoboda in Ukraine), typically pure fascists.

The US revolution was an exception rather than the rule. Worth studying for what went right which surely had something to do with US citizens being the most literate in the world at that time, even more avid book readers than today. Their "street thugs" were learned gentlemen who already had a solid, civilized plan for order before engaging in chaos.

Can those conditions be matched today? I'm skeptical. I see fascist thugs everywhere.

,
yes, they are all neocons and globalist bankster puppets and muppets for hire.
to "under-stand" you must go into the basement and look at the arrangement
of the foundation and the materials from which those support structures are
composed and constructed. frequently, it is there where you will find the
rot and worms and the sameness of the seeming dialectic.
. (something to ponder)
" "Engels' laws of dialectics

Engels postulated three laws of dialectics from his reading of Hegel's Science of Logic.[24] Engels elucidated these laws in his work Dialectics of Nature:
The law of the unity and conflict of opposites
The law of the passage of quantitative changes into qualitative changes
The law of the negation of the negation
The first law was seen by both Hegel and Vladimir Lenin as the central feature of a dialectical understanding of things[25][26] and originates with the ancient Ionian philosopher Heraclitus.[27]
The second law Hegel took from Aristotle,[citation needed] and it is equated with what scientists call phase transitions. It may be traced to the ancient Ionian philosophers (particularly Anaximenes),[citation needed] from whom Aristotle, Hegel, and Engels inherited the concept. For all these authors, one of the main illustrations is the phase transitions of water. There has also been an effort to apply this mechanism to social phenomena, whereby population increases result in changes in social structure. The law of the passage of quantitative changes into qualitative changes can also be applied to the process of social change and class conflict.[28]
The third law, "negation of the negation," originated with Hegel. Although Hegel coined the term "negation of the negation," it gained its fame from Marx's using it in Capital. There Marx wrote this: "The [death] knell of capitalist private property sounds. The expropriators [capitalists] are expropriated. The capitalist mode of appropriation, the result of the capitalist mode of production, produces capitalist private property. This is the first negation [antithesis] of individual private property. [The "first negation," or antithesis, negates the thesis, which in this instance is feudalism, the economic system that preceded capitalism.] . . . But capitalist production begets, with the inexorability of a law of Nature, its own negation. It [final communism, the synthesis] is the negation of [the] negation."[29]" ...wiki

These warmonger terms, “invaded Georgia,” and “storms Ukrainian bases in Crimea” are false, of course. But more than that, they are weapons of war whereby literally millions have died when false patriotism ignited by deception and lies has created endless war.

The fact is, it was the Georgian president who aggressively rolled into Tskhinvali, capital of tiny South Ossetia, as an occupier and contrary to what the warmongers say, it was Putin who came to these people’s rescue.

In August 2008, as the world's leaders gathered in Beijing for the Olympic games, Georgian President Saakashvili, ”hot-headed and erratic,” made his first move. As Pat Buchanan wrote at the time:

“It began with a stunning artillery barrage on Tskhinvali, capital of tiny South Ossetia, a province that had broken free of Tbilisi when Tbilisi broke free of Russia. As Ossetians and Russian peacekeepers fell under the Georgian guns, terrified Ossetians fled into Russia.

“Saakashvili's blitzkrieg appeared to have triumphed.

“Until, that is, Russian armor, on Vladimir Putin's orders, came thundering down the Roki Tunnel into Ossetia, sending Saakashvili's army reeling. The Georgians were driven out of Ossetia and expelled from a second province that had broken free of Tbilisi: Abkhazia.

“The Russians then proceeded to bomb Tbilisi, capture Gori, birthplace of Joseph Stalin, and bomb Georgian airfields rumored to be the forward bases for the Israelis in any pre-emptive strike on Iran.”

Said Buchanan:” What made this war of interest to Americans, however, was that Bush had long sought to bring Georgia into NATO. Only the resistance of Old Europe had prevented it.

“And had Georgia been a member of NATO when Saakashvili began his war, U.S. Marines and Special Forces might have been on the way to the Caucasus to confront Russian troops in a part of the world where there is no vital U.S. interest and never has been any U.S. strategic interest whatsoever.”

Days later, there came another startling discovery.

McCain Jewish foreign policy adviser Randy Scheunemann had been paid $290,000 by the Saakashvili regime, from January 2007 to March 2008, to get Georgia into NATO, and thus acquire a priceless U.S. war guarantee to fight on Georgia's side in any clash with Russia.

Not only that, his brother is a two star General in the Army. From conversations I had with him, he actually wasn't too impressed with his brother's acumen.

Would you be impressed if your brother was the modern day equivalent of an American Nazi SS Oberfuhrerdinkelshznitz?

Mike Rogers might be a warmonger but he’s also a war profiteer. Just look at the revelation above from highwaytoserfdom’s by techdirt “that Rogers wife, Kristi Clemens Rogers, was, until recently, the president and CEO of Aegis LLC a "security" defense contractor company, whom she helped to secure a $10 billion (with a b) contract with the State Department."

Techdirt, from its no-conflict,-no-interest dept, reveals just how lowdown and greedy Rogers is:

“It has seemed quite strange to see how strongly Rogers has been fighting for CISPA, refusing to even acknowledge the seriousness of the privacy concerns. At other times, he can't even keep his own story straight about whether or not CISPA is about giving information to the NSA (hint: it is). And then there was the recent ridiculousness with him insisting that the only opposition to CISPA came from 14-year-old kids in their basement. Wrong and insulting.

“Of course, as we've noted all along, all attempts at cybersecurity legislation have always been about money. Mainly, money to big defense contractors aiming to provide the government with lots of very expensive "solutions" to the cybersecurity "problem" -- a problem that still has not been adequately defined beyond fake scare stories. Just last month, Rogers accidentally tweeted (and then deleted) a story about how CISPA supporters, like himself, had received 15 times more money from pro-CISPA group than the opposition had received from anti-CISPA groups.”

Let's make it short and easy to understand.

Mike Rogers is a treasonous leech who needs to be removed from office, at the least.

All he'd get is a face full of birdshot and have to apologize on national TV for putting his face in the path of the birdshot.  I'd much prefer to see this headline:

Mike Rogers will be first one pushing others out of the way to get into a bunker before the nukes start flying.

Another self-enriching political sociopath.

How many envelops stuck with money did he receive from lobbyists?
