Meanwhile, Kiev Is Burning Again

Tyler Durden's picture


While we assume NATO's Rasmussen's appearance in Kiev is not responsible, Kiev is burning once again. As RT reports, activists and police have clashed in the Ukrainian capital’s center after communal workers tried to dismantle an activist camp, following a months-old conflict over the camp with the city administration.



Eerily reminiscent of the devastation from mere months ago...

In a roundabout way they were paid by George Soros in scrap jewelry he purloined from jews in the second world war.


The real question is who paid the third force who was doubtlessly sniping both sides from the rooftops?

And the width and low profile of that tire looked like it came off a race car or a Ferrari (a low profile vehicle with at least 400 bhp) !?

"the camp has remained as a memorial to the more than 100 people who died during the uprising and a symbol of resistance for activists who do not necessarily trust the new post-revolutionary government.
Protesters warned at the time of the revolution that they would remain on the square at least until new presidential elections, to prevent any backsliding into the corruption that has blighted Ukrainian politics for years.
Black smoke billowed over the city centre as protesters set fire to barricades and hurled cobblestones at police and interior ministry troops who arrived to remove tents and barricades on Thursday morning."

Latina Lover   dual citizen traitors.


I would submit the idea that persons of several citizenships are people that are seeking the best advantage for themselves. Does that make them traitorous?

Perhaps you should consider it is government that is traitorous which is why some individuals seek ways to be in the best place that is less traitorous, or suppressive, for them.

 Forgoing their true nationality and exploiting the people to create wealth for themselves is just about as close to the definition of a traitor as you can find.

Government is clearly traitorous as they don't act on behalf of the majority of the citizens. That makes anyone who is part of the decision making process or benefits from it traitorous as well.

The reasoning is not very hard once you get past the thought that money is to be made by any means.

I'll bet Putin is sitting back watching, smiling as the USSA takeover of the Ukraine starts to fall apart.

Obama has done more to fuel nationalism in Russia, than billions of pro Kremlim propaganda could have ever achieved. Most Russians now understand that the USSA is their enemy, and they need to free themselves of western shackles, lest they be destroyed like their Ukrainian brethen. 

With an 87% approval rating, Putin has a free hand to burn the NGO's rats nests, scatter the fifth columnists, and stop any USSA sponsored color revolution. No more Pussy Riot, LOL.

Back in December I predicted Ukraine would be another 1956 Hungry - that the West would give lip service (a particularly appropriate phrase now with Obama in office), and when it got down to saving the newly installed government, or doing nothing, well, the situation would go just as it is going - with the West doing nothing because it has to protect its own self-intersests first, a la the food import ban crisis.


So, watch the western Ukrainians bug out as fast as possible to the western range of Europe, before the entire game collapses. And watch much of the Kiev army go with them.


History does not repeat, but this is certainly history rhymning with 1956 Hungry.

McFaul, as ambassador to Russia, pretty apparently tried to stir the pot, no doubt working with the FDD, NED, and other neocon/CIA ngos...

The hypocrisy, stupidity, and warmongering out of the american chattering class is astounding.  I'm not sure if they seriously truly expect Russia to give up Crimea, ignore the referendum and Russian nationals there, and then allow a puppet regime to eject the Black Sea Fleet while building new anti-missile battery sites all over Eastern and Southern Ukraine... apparently the American and British public are stupid enough to buy into the narrative that Russia has been the aggressor here.  Them, and a handful of ZHers who like to make homoerotic statements with regard to anyone who might admire Putin as at least a voice in opposition/resistance to the Anglo-Zio-American axis of evil.

I can't believe how obvious the prep work for ww3 is, and how silent the Left is about impending war.  Perhaps they'd be out protesting the war propaganda if it wasn't a black Democrat ostensibly in charge...
