Donetsk Creates "People's Army"

Tyler Durden's picture


With tensions rising ever faster in eastern Ukraine, the anti-government (pro-Russia) movement in Donetsk has taken dramatic steps to bolster itself by creating a "people's army," or National Army of Donetsk. As RT reports, masked men, who are mostly civil volunteers, but also police and army defectors, say they “defend their motherland from the fascist army that’s going to kill them.” They also demand “a referendum to be independent from Kiev” and are in favor of “being with Russia.”

The Ukraine forces are moving in on Donetsk...



And now the people are organizing...

The importance of this move is the pro-Russian local forces are now organized to repel any Ukraine (government) attempts to re-take government buildings - and conjures ugly memories of the hell that Kiev suffered for multiple weeks.

As Dontesk protesters prepare...

Can you blame them? The Tea Party's foreign policy would have them submit as dogs to the unelected Ukrainian Fascists in Kiev. At least with Russia's Putin, they are treated as kin; battered maybe, but kin.

America undermines governments across the world, then sits back to feast on the corpses as it creates another zombie puppet state and then offers the proto-fascists IMF loanshark loans. ''America ruins the world to rule it''. I envision an America more along the lines of Ron Paul and Andrew Jackson, than Mike Rogers and Obama.

It looks like this weekend is going to be interesting.   I think we see fighting in the streets and then, after a relatively short period of time, Russian forces begin to cross the border in the Ukraine using the unrest as an excuse for entry somehow.

Did Vitoria Nulland know that this scenario is one of the possible consequence of her distribution of cookies in Maidan Square? I think she know, so what she did was a premeditated act, a crime against ukranians and their country. US had already rob 40 tons of Ukranine Gold.

Following the world-wide acceptance of oil as the primary fuel source around 1904 Germany rushed to establish trade routes with Saudi kingdoms that have just discovered huge quantities of it. The move was met with opposition from every international player who could not compete with the highly industrialized but still dependent on coal Germany.

It took 10 years of provocation and industrial sabotage to push Germany to the brink of War. Since none of the issues were resolved, Germany was put into much worse situation, resuling in a repeated attempt to secure trade routes throuhg conquest rather than diplomacy.

The reason Germany ended up on the same side as distant Japan is because they were in an identical economic situation. Oil haves vs. oil have not's.

As for Italy, it was in it for the money... and it was hoping enough breadcrumbs would fall off the master's table to satisfy the appetite of its political elite.

You guys are funny.  Apparently none of you understand what playing devil's advocate means, and all of you believe only the US is capable of dirty tricks.  Additionally, you all believe there are ZERO "US citizens" (which is different than being 'merikan) in Ukraine for legitimate reasons.


Fake YT clips abound, but this one is 100% legit because it's not pro-American, and it fits your narrative.

No, I/we get it.  The double false flag stuff is fairly easy to disprove.  I would not suspect that the Russians would do that given the blowback risk.  They exhibited mastery of political optics with Syria and Ukraine to date.  Your suggestion has a grossly asymetrical risk/reward associated with it to think it is close to reality.

It is laughable that people so easily and readily lap this up as gospel truth.  We know for a fact Israeli citizens that were born in Ukraine took part in the demostrations that caused the overthrow the previous government.  So there's no way that this guy is  a Ukrania born "US citizen" that went back to support his country, right?  It may not be a likely scenario, but it is possible and even plausible.  I'm not saying he is not a US contractor, or even a US operative.  But I'm not falling for every piece of propaganda that's put in front of me just because I don't like this administration or US foreign policy.

This video may not even be for US consumption.  A Russian news article linked to this video proclaims this proves the US involvement in provoking and escalating the situation.  Oh, Russian media has to be believed because only the US serves as the president's lap dog.



Duh, the article I reference is the one linked to above.  This video is appearing in too many places to track.

“They paid no heed when the new government appointed oligarchs to rule Eastern provinces. They watched when the Brown bands moved eastwards to threaten the Russian-speaking South East. Nor did they react when children in Ukrainian schools were ordered to sing “Hang a Russian on a thick branch” and the oligarch-governor’s deputy promised to hang dissatisfied Russians of the East as soon as Crimea is pacified. – Israel Shamir, "Putin's Triumph"

What’s the last straw for the protesters in eastern Ukraine? It appears it’s "Ukraine military forces moving in on Donetsk."

No worries!

After all, when you become a bought and paid for merc the government that sponsors you has no association with you when you are killed or MIA. 

As a matter of fact their is "no" MIA status when you are either captured or killed -this is why the money in the mercs head is the only thing that binds them to the work they perform as it is guaranteed in writing that the U.S. Government will never attempt to identify you and you can forget about your remains ever being shipped home in a shoebox.  Comes with the trappings of the job...
