Obama's Ukraine Update - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture

The "proof" is flying back and forth from The US and Russia, with the disastrous MH17 crash polarizing the world's nations in a troubling (but BFTWWIII) manner. Following a weekend of European leaders getting behind The US, China has come out strongly supporting Russia who itself asked some awkward 'proof-laden' questions this morning. We leave it to President Obama to dictate exactly what we should all believe and just how bad things will get unless Russia gives up... Markets are sliding into the speech...


President Obama is due to speak at 1050ET...

Seriously would he rank below Wilson and FDR?  I would put him above Wilson and FDR and below Carter and Reagan.

"Now let me be perfectly clear.  Russia is behind this tragedy.  John Kerry is in Egypt checking things over and has clear evidence.  Amen."

Are his statements to be his lies or the teleprompter's lies?

reddit.com is a large site that is a little bit like ZH, but is more computer-oriented.  They also have many, many users reply there as well.  Those who comment there are less pro-Russia as a whole than those here.

Is that supposed to be BAD news for Putin ? In Russia, the KGB controls the billionaires, as opposed to US and the Western World. There are no billionaires without Putin's approval. Those who tried to play against him are dead, or have been "warned" (see Khodorovsky). Russian billionaires are more like CEOs in charge of a multinational, except it's not THEIRS, they cannot liquidate it, take the money and run with it. If they try anything like that, their assets would be confiscated immediately, and they would end up stiff (most probably). Also, they cannot mount a "coup d'etat" as foolish Americans keep hoping , because they are under complete KGB supervision and control. So, they don't matter in the Russian power equation. By trying to "sanction" the Russian rich (not too many), the West is playing exactly into Putin's hand by forcing a lot of money hidden into foreign accounts to return into Russian or Russian friendly banks or risk being confiscated as result of "sanctions". Which is why Putin has not lost any sleep over this entire American orchestrated kabuki play.

The West is making a very big bet that it can live without Russian resources. Good luck with that one ! Last time I checked, despite the "awesome" new age of American oil & gas (resulted from fracking), the oil is still above 100 USD, and gasoline over 3.50 USD/gal. And that's inside the US ! Outside, the resources map is much bleaker. And this is only the beginning...

As a side note, the normal Russians would be more than thrilled to know that some billionaires (which they hate with a passion) are having a bit of a trouble.

Both sides are spewing so much propaganda now it will be impossible to seperate the truth from the lies.

wilson was the worst.  period.  until someone starts a massive nuclear war.  that kgb spymaster fdr (see harry dexter white, alger hiss, walter duranty, etc) was much worse than obama, so far.

US/EU overthrow U. President, Russia responds, US/EU encourage U. airstrikes, Russia responds. U. orders commercial airliner directly over surface to air missiles. Could this tragic incident be a way to provoke more military conflict w Russia???

It's a feeble attempt to get Russian people to turn on Putin. That is all

A vacationing penguin is driving his car through Arizona when he notices that the oil pressure light is on. He gets out to look and sees oil dripping out of the motor. He drives to the nearest town and stops at the first gas station.

 After dropping the car off, the penguin goes for a walk around town. He sees an ice-cream shop and, being a penguin in Arizona, decides that something cold would really hit the spot. He gets a big dish of ice cream and sits down to eat. Having no hands he makes a real mess trying to eat with his flippers. After finishing his ice cream, he goes back to the gas station and asks the mechanic if he's found the problem. The mechanic looks up and says "It looks like you blew a seal."

 "No no," the penguin replies, "it's just ice cream."
