"Ukraine In Very Dangerous Situation", No Lethal Assistance Coming Says White House

Tyler Durden's picture

First it was the Russians who repeated they are "deeply concerned by the deaths in the Ukraine," and now it is the turn of the White House, through its  speaker, Jay Carney, to chime in as well:


And yet, despite all the priase, Ukraine is on its own.


In other words, as we said last week, if it is Ukraine's gambit, that its allies will come to its rescue upon a lethal escalation and provocation, "it will be sorely disappointed." It seems Ukraine is about to figure this our first hand.

How do you admire the restraint of rolling in tanks to stop a vote? When something that stupid is said, it really makes people read everything else said as being the complete opposite of the truth.

Who needs "lethal assistance" when you have "kenetic humanitarian aid" ?

So in other words get ready for the lethal assistance.

This doesn't necessarily rule out an unexplained/mysterious possible appearance of a large ground force of alCIAda Liver Eating 'Freedom Fighters'
fomenting a Ukrainian Civil War and/or provoking Russia much more aggressively.

Now if you'll excuse Jay, he has some Lenin, Marx & Stalin themed & other such posters, designs, decor and house decorating regalia he needs to pick up from Bed, Banya & Beyond.

u.s. gov needs Ukraine coup gov to look like a victim first...  Russia must be painted as the aggressor for the propaganda to have any effect.

Well....a couple of dozen Hawk SAM batteries wouldn't be lethal as long as no one flies over them.

So they use the CIA to goad them into kicking out a Russian-sympathizing-but-democratically-elected President and then pull the rug out and offer no support?  What kind of fucked up foreign policy is that?

It worked failed in Libya..!

Sad to say, it's been a relatively effective one to date.
How else can a bunch of thugs get "international recognition" and support?

Snidley Whipsnae's picture

redpill... Same thing they did in Georgia.

Absolutely. The Europeans will do nothing. History shows they have never reacted until it was too late. Carney needs to keep his mouth shut. We all know we will stay out. No need to say it.

Go back in my posts and you'll find that when this all started, I stated that this is 1956 Hungary all over again.

I have lately begun to think 1936, the Spanish Civil War.

Agreed john, this Zio statement is a bait for Russia, as is the aerial attack earlier today. 

Now Brennan's "secret" visit to Kiev makes a lot of sense: Banderastan attacks "separatists in SE Ukraine, USSA comes out with a public claim it won't support Banderastan and hopes Russia will retribute. Russia sends military help to Russians in SE Ukraine and NATO starts screaming bloody murder and calls on Article 5 (never mind Ukraine isn't a member, Kosovo was "liberated" under the same pretext) and it's game on... Welcome to WWIII...

What do the Zionists get? IMO, they kill two birds with a 150 kT nuke:

1. Vichy DC skips responsibility for Russia & China dumping 'king dollah' because of apparent (war-time) reasons;

2. Financial collapse of the Anglo-Zio Empire is prevented.

The inbred sob's are that fuckin' desperate...

Nobody is going to do anything.

Deal with it.

No lethal assistance 'coming'????


And what the hell do you call the 'assistance' given by the Nulandians up to now?  As lethal as it can get for the unfortunate Ukrainians.

Only if President Jarrett approves it.

Anyone see the Gawker article about Mark Gorton waking up?


Take a look at the idiotic comments, i.e. "Rich people often fall into a delusional psychosis.  I hope that he can come back from it, but most drift further into insanity"... 

Hear that ZH'ers?  You people are regular old looney toons.  And you are so self-righteous pretending that you know things that other people don't, just because you think you can observe reality and apply logic to reach a conclusion.  Very un-American of you!

Most people reside within the coziness of the MSM bubble, and that's where they're comfortable. Anything that threatens their illusion is to be met with hostility, hence the casual armchair psychiatry whereby they diagnose non-conformers as "insane."

These people are, for lack of a better term, indoctrinated, and their reactions are akin to religious fanatics who think everyone else is crazy. I see comments like the one you quoted above as a kind of safety mechanism, almost like parents who refuse to believe anything negative they hear about their kids.

"My country would never do such a thing" is really not all that different from "My Johnny would never do such a thing."

Or to wherever they've stashed the country's recently 'liberated' gold.

"no lethal assistance", unless of course military weapons are lethal....

Raise your hand if you believe Carney speaks the truth, the whole truth and nthing but the truth. How that guy can look himself in the mirror is beyond me

pods's picture

Maybe you answered your own question Fred?  What if he looked into the mirror and saw nothing?


bagehot99's picture

I think he looks in the mirror and sees a latter day Willi Munzenberg.

tsuki's picture

He can look himself in the mirror because he lies to himself on what he sees.

Carney moves his mouth but all I hear is:

Blah blah blah. We're a bunch of pussies.

The Greystone psychopaths don't count as 'assistance'?

It's as if Obama is setting the stage for the US to basically just leave EVERYBODY hanging.  US foreign policy is not only in tatters, the US appears to be actively working at destroying any trust that any foreign government may have in it.

1. Refuse to repatriate gold?  German.  Check.

2. Turn on long time allies?  Egypt.  Check.

3. Set up a situation where Europes nat. gas is cut off?  1/2 of Europe.  Check.

4. Set up a sweet deal that turns to shit.  Ukraine.  Check.

5. We'll take care of those back debts.  Just sign here for loans.  After the fact.  Ukraine.  Check.

Reagan's words come to mind with minor alteration of the nine scariest words, "I'm from the US government and I'm here to help."

The thought had occurred to me that Obozo was deliberately sabotaging

the neocons, at the last minute, in all these fuckups.

Then I realized he probably can't even clean his own golf balls without help, so

I dismissed it.

jay28elle's picture

But I do think he's a master at being stupd, so I don't put it past him to be playing that part up.  Although, that said, he may be too stupid to realize that not everyone else is as stupid has he may think.  

Monty Burns's picture

Very same thought sequence occured to me!

TammanyBrawl's picture

Its almost as if the guy didn't like America, was intentionally trying to damage our relationships with our allies, and diminish our standing in the world....hey wait a minute!

That would also fit with putting the country into so much debt that it collapsed.

Wasn't there a guy who wrote something about that? Cloward and Piven? No. Oh right- Alinsky.

"No Lethal Assistance" wtf does that mean?

We have always been at war with Eastasia..

Not real clear what restraint has been shown by the Ukraine government.

They won't have fuel for their tanks.  It's not hard to restrain activity when none is possible.

pods's picture

I was thinking about that. All the separatists have to do is drive away from the incoming forces and let them run out of gas.  


McMolotov's picture

What if they gave a war and nobody could drive to it?

Queue up the cavalry with scimitars and recurved bows...
