So much for Joe Biden's peace-keeping salvation mission to Kiev...

As Bloomberg reports, Pro-Russian separatists have “crossed line,” Ukraine acting President Oleksandr Turchynov says in statement posted on parliament website.

Check Kerry, Nuland, Brennan, Biden, the 4 horsemen of the US apocaylpse.  Isn't it interesting when a senior american political figure shows up, new military actions/violence against civilians begin?

(Some people believe that Nuland/Nudelman is a female. Don't be so sure...)

meanwhile, Russia delays legalizing GMO crops (mandated by WTO) for another three years:


more evidence that Putin is not just playing an NWO puppet role...  but instead, resisting in a way that American leaders never did.

this ain't no game brother...and damn skippy i'm popping off at the mouth. "next up the bullets start doing the talking" and that's the end of talking and that is mission FAIL.

Those US forces will need to be in Minsk..quite possibly within the next 48 hours....and in sufficient numbers (20,000) in order to move on Kiev. Needless to say "this will come as a surprise to the American People" as even with the most contorted logic no one can possibly argue "this is being done in the name of peace."

So indeed "the rationale for war will have to be explained."

One hell of a peace dividend so of course stocks are rallying. "They have better intel."

For all we know they're driving this...this...this...what is this again?

Ah! "Diplomacy."

Right. Got it!

He moved up from "he's with me"   to  "he's with us"

hard to argue "bad intelligence" when you have total control of the internet.

So at least we know we "mean" it.

It's just a question of "who is we" and "what is it" at this point.
Any takers?

Anyone have a link to a Ukraine map showing the agricultural areas?

Don't care about manufacturing.  That will all go to China.  The agriculture is all that matters for those people, since they have no oil.

Never mind.  Here's an Arab centric analysis of Ukraine agriculture:


Arab centric because apparently most of the grain exports go to the Middle East. 

71% of the land is arable (!!!) but the text says south, central and eastern regions is where most is grown. 4th largest grain exporter in the world.

Non Farm Payrolls don't mean much.  25% of the workforce works on farms.

The EU and US are being monumentally stupid.  There's nothing in the west.  OTOH it explains why the Ukrainian faux gov't refuses to let the east and south go.  THEY at least understand where the bread is buttered.

Reads rather propaganda-ish, unlike the Arab layout.

One wonders at all those big Ag deals continuing if the East and South, where the crops are, depart.

Biden: "No really, we will back you up!  Just like those good folks at the Boston Marathon who got their legs blown off and all kinds of stuff.  You will look back on this and think, "it was all worth it!"
