EU Announces New Washington-Pleasing, Russia-Wristslap Sanctions

Tyler Durden's picture




 

After unleashing a 10-page report of the death and destructive economic impact they could have on Russia via sanctions, the European leaders have agreed to issue travel bans, some asset-freezes, and trade curbs on various new individuals and business entities. The Goldilocks sanctions... just enough to please Washington, not enough to infuriate Putin into 'boomerangs'.

  • *EU AMBASSADORS’ MEETING ON RUSSIA SANCTIONS REACHES DEAL: FT

Via DPA,

EU ambassadors have reached agreement on a new round of travel bans and asset freezes in response to the crisis in Ukraine, diplomats say.

*  *  *

The sanctions...

  • *EU AGREES CURBS ON RUSSIAN BANKS, EXPORT OF SOME TECHNOLOGY
  • *EU TO RESTRICT EXPORT OF EQUIPMENT FOR RUSSIAN OIL PRODUCTION
  • *EU TO CURB STATE-OWNED RUSSIAN BANKS' ACCESS TO CAPITAL MARKETS
  • *EU TO IMPOSE EMBARGO ON FUTURE ARMS SALES TO RUSSIA
  • *EU TO CURB SALE OF 'DUAL-USE' MACHINERY, ELECTRONICS TO RUSSIA
  • *SANCTIONS WILL BE REVIEWED AFTER 3 MONTHS: EU DIPLOMAT

But...

  • *AIDE SAYS U.S. HAS APPROVED EXPORTS OF DUAL-USE GOODS TO RUSSIA
  • *COMMERCE AIDE SAYS U.S. HASN'T REVOKED RUSSIA EXPORT LICENSES
  • *U.S. GOODS APPROVED FOR EXPORT HAVE MILITARY APPLICATIONS

I.e. the rockets for US military satellites

*  *  *

Just as we predicted.

*  *  *

Is it any wonder European leaders are all talk since the potential for blow back is so much larger compared to Washington...

 

*  *  *

Meanwhile, Russia is 'trying'

  • *LAVROV URGED KERRY TO PUSH UKRAINE GOVT FOR CEASE-FIRE
  • *LAVROV, KERRY DISCUSSED ARMS CONTROL, UKRAINE, MIDDLE EAST
  • *LAVROV, KERRY AGREE ON NEED FOR CEASE-FIRE NEAR MH17 CRASH SITE

And Kerry's response:

  • *KERRY: RUSSIA SHOWS `NO SHRED OF EVIDENCE' OF BACKING CEASEFIRE
  • *KERRY: U.S. WILL IMPOSE WIDER SANCTIONS ON RUSSIA IF NO CHANGE

Speaking of Russian oligarchs. I’m not a man who usually promotes “Jews rule the world conspiracies” although acknowledging this group of people is overrepresented in powerful institutions, however, after doing some more reading about Khodorkovsky, which happens to be a Jew with close ties to the Rothschild family (that is an indisputable fact), paranoid people like myself tend to become suspicious. So after scrolling through a list of more than a dozen of the richest Russian oligarchs I became aware that not only a disproportionate number, but rather a vast majority of them, where in fact Jewish. Taken in account that Jews, today at least, make up an even much tinier proportion of the Russian population than the American, there should be reason to raise some questions and ring some alarm bells. If someone can’t give me a credible explanation to why this should be a coincidence, I migth be led to believe that it isn’t a coincidence at all.

Two days ago I bought GAZPROM 2028 Participation Notes at an effective yield of 6.38% per annum.  Today they began to rally, showing once again the EU understands who their real partners are. If it wasn't for EU  NSA compromised politicans, nothing would have happened.

Russia did not shoot down MH17, nor did the so called Rebels.   It was just another Failed False Flag by the USSA puppeting their captive regime in Kiev.

Mish has been following the MH17 event

http://globaleconomicanalysis.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/calling-all-munitions-and-fighter-plane.html

Basically a separatist video was posted on youtube June 18th ( a month before MH17) ...translation here

".....A passenger plane was flying by, and Ukrainian attack aircraft hid behind it. Then he lowered his altitude a bit and dropped bombs on the residential sector of Seminovka. They wanted to provoke the militia to shoot at the passenger plane. There would have been a global catastrophe. Civilians would have died....."

Re False Flag

The immediate shrill propaganda against Putin, a huge burst of negative comments from inactive social media accounts and closely co-ordinated mainstream talking points were a dead giveaway.

Russia and Ukrainian nationalists had nothing to gain from shooting MH17 whereas Kiev and their USSA masters profited mightily from the MH17 killings.

Join the gang, George.  All my life I bought into the narrative that Jews were "over-represented" because of their high intelligence.  But a few things made me dig. And I dug a bit more....and kept on digging. And it blew my fucking mind.  It will yours too if ever you get to do it.

You mention Ukraine. Jews make up 0.2% of the population but, post Nuland (herself Jewish) the President,  Prime Minister and Governors of the three largest regions are all Jewish. There just cannot be an innocent explanation for this and sure as hell we goyim aren't going to be the beneficiaries.

This is just kabuki theater until the skies start lighting up. It seems pretty clear to me the west isn't going to let this go. You know it's funny they talk about Iraq breaking up into 3 parts.. Why isn't anyone talking about the as logical prospect of Ukraine spliiting into a NEO-NAZI east and a pro Russian ( and in many cases ACTUAL RUSSIAN ) west.

 

Same reason why Crimea legally leaving Ukraine was a crime and Kosovo doing the same thing was self determination. Because it isn't to the satanists liking.

There will be open revolt in europe if they push for war LoP.

I've been told it by multiple people over there.

Nobody is going to war for the US full stop, at this point.

Nobody will believe another US false flag either.

The NWO has overplayed its hand, now we will see if that are prepared to destroy

the world,to save it in their image.

I'm not eager for the answer on that question.

You remain the optimist Winston.  Who is "willing to go to war" (for the U.S. or Israel) is irrelevant so long as the supply of weapons continues to flow to desparate people simply trying to survive.  

The "club" continues to get smaller.  As history shows time and time again, eventually the numbers of the desparate swells and a few club members are jaded enough to actually organize a real war effort.

I continue to watch China (who seems quite content to watch all of this unfolding).

I think you are wrong, there has been a sea change in the mood there

in the attitude to both the US, and their own 'leaders'.

If I was a betting man, I'd say the odds are greater that europe turns on the US,after their

leaders,rather than Russia.The Balts, and Poles being the exception, but they were always suicidal.

China is quite happy to let Putin do the front running in a good  cop/bad cop routine.

That will change abruptly if Russia is truly threatened, but the Ukes are being trounced,

and winter is coming, there is no need at this point.We don't know what diplomatic pressure is

being the scenes either.

Only one thing is assured at this point, what is coming will benefit the international oligarchs as the earth has in large part abandoned a legitimate rule of law and mechanism for settling trade accounts in favor of decades of  "worry free" central planning.

No way for anyone, in any country to avoid the consequences of avoiding the consequences of bad behavior and capital mis-allocation at so many levels for so long.

I am optimistic in that compensation (in whatever form that may be) will slowly begin to return to people who actually work to provide goods and services of real value.  This is never without pain (for useless fucks anyway).

I don't care what his name is: that was my first thought when I saw certain pictures of the aircraft skin.   Not the splintering part (beyond my ability to assess from those pics) but the 30mm cannon.  It makes sense that Ukraine has been trying desperately to gain control of the crash area.

[edit:  It seems though that the SU25 has a ceiling of 7K meters or so.  So they could not have hit an aircraft almost 2 miles above them with cannon fire.]

There is more from Germany, if genuine this guy is clearly qualified. Taken from

https://www.facebook.com/TruthfromUkraine/timeline

German colonel: "If a ground-to air missile hit the plane, it would immediately ignite a fire"

Berlin - A use of "surface-to-air missile can be excluded," said Colonel Bernd Biedermann about the crash of Malaysian flight #MH-17 on July 17 in Eastern Ukraine, in an article for the daily newspaper "Neues Deutschland" in Berlin. If a ground-to air missile would hit the plane, it would immediately ignite a fire, said the rocket specialist, because of the "great heat from friction, that produce shards when struck by the missile. One contains the same kinetic energy as 40-ton freight cars running at 60 kilometres per hour."

Scattered fires erupted in the case of the Malaysian Boeing only after the impact on the ground, because hot airplane parts came in contact with flammable materials. Biedermann is familiar with Soviet and Russian air defence technology, he led units in the armed forces of GDR and taught at the Military Academy specializing in missile forces.

On the surface I tend to agree with you. But if we are to truly recognize that the powers that be are global in nature and not actually nation oriented, then it is easier to see that Putin is simply playing his part in the global power shift dance.

One simply does not ascend to the position of Putin and Obama without continuously feeding those who support their wearing the public crowns of power. It is the court that supports the King and not the other way round.

remember someone diverted the MH flight over the ukraine and to a lower altitude and it was trailed by at least 2 ukraine bombers.... any guesses... ask yourself, what does russia or the "rebels" gain by shooting down a passanger jet..?? remember ussa shot an iranian one down thinking it was under attack... 

meantime the ussa stabs its staunch ally in the back, and remember obumbler set this whole thing up with the unilateral nuke disarmament (weak), no east europe defensive missle installation (weak), hildabeast reset (stupid and weak), various lines n the sand (weak), creating utter chaos in lybia, egypt and syria with hot air remarks and covert actions (weak)... 

obumbler mericon looked stupid and weak and took measures to create the current chaos and then says the world has never been more tranquil.... this guy needs a blood test to determine wtf he is taking in addition to crack and weed... he needs a psychological exam to determine if he is capable of logical thought..... please stfu and play more golf and muzzle kerrykohn...

1) Saul Alinsky instigation of Crisis in order to

2) Create a Cloward-Piven overload of the establishment for the purpose of

3) Establishing a Marxist consolidation of the maximum possible amount of power in the fewest possible hands.

 

Does it make sense now?

The one thing you should NEVER EVER DO IN A MILITARY CONFLICT IS - whatever the enemy wants you to do.

Does this make clear why I continue to counsel de-escalation?  What does Russia or the US stand to lose in Ukraine that compares to what we would both lose in war?

American's don't want War with Russia.  Obama, his supporters, and the banksters who own them are simply out-of-control.

It is in everyone's interest to get them into control without destroying the world.

Europe has to go "hot" so money flees to US markets, old european money is ok with this, (as they control the us via their banks which own the us fed.)

Dear Putin,

Your sister smells of elderberries.

Israel must get their pipeline even if Europe freezes.

The Rothschilds control Europe’s financial-fiat strings.

We will see shortly who’s zooming who.

Exactly and more than likely the Brit bunch of the Israeli Rothschild network will tell the German side of the Israeli Rothschild network, ... you are going to take it in the shorts again.

As Emma Rothschild once stated .... If my sons did not want wars, there would be no wars."

If Russia is really hell bent on going on the march, all these incremental sanctions will do is give its leadership clues about where to shore up internal infrastructure to take up the slack vs imported physical/intellectual goods.

Holy shit, now look what the Ukrainian Army has gone and done. This is a US ally unleashing what Hiltler called 'terror' weapons.

Unleashed a salvo of WW2 V2 type missiles with 500kg wareheads of various types including scrapnel. From the end of the report it could have been three into Donansk.

This is an official MSM CNN report fron US intelligence.

We haven't now any information about areas which could be targeted by this kind of weapon, we waiting news from our sources.

Kiev junta could to use Tochka (tactical missile complex), SS-21 Scarab A by NATO classification.

Can you imagine the horror on the faces of the Russians in Moscow seeing them lift off?

Without saying that it did or did not happen, however, this is C(IA)NN so I would posit that it is just more misinfo and misdirection.

My opinion is that they are feeling some heat for their obvious propaganda against Russia, so they created a little against the Ukraine to cool things off a bit.

There is a huge reason why even in ancient Egypt Jews were not allowed near government, or anywhere where they could even theoretically screw the citizens that are not part of their tribe.  Everything they touch turns into shit for the rest of us...and criticizing it is illegal...  

Now Ukrainian government is 100% Jewish and the results are out for the world to see: blood, torture, rape, theft...more theft...did I miss anything?!...
