Ex-NSA Director, US Intelligence Veterans Write Open Letter To Merkel To Avoid All-Out Ukraine War

Tyler Durden's picture


Alarmed at the anti-Russian hysteria sweeping Washington, and the specter of a new Cold War, U.S. intelligence veterans one of whom is none other than William Binney, the former senior NSA crypto-mathematician who back in March 2012 blew the whistle on the NSA's spying programs more than a year before Edward Snowden, took the unusual step of sending the following memo dated August 30 to German Chancellor Merkel challenging the reliability of Ukrainian and U.S. media claims about a Russian "invasion."

Via AntiWar and ConsortiumNews, highlights ours

MEMORANDUM FOR: Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany
FROM: Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS)
SUBJECT: Ukraine and NATO

We the undersigned are longtime veterans of U.S. intelligence. We take the unusual step of writing this open letter to you to ensure that you have an opportunity to be briefed on our views prior to the NATO summit on September 4-5.

You need to know, for example, that accusations of a major Russian "invasion" of Ukraine appear not to be supported by reliable intelligence. Rather, the "intelligence" seems to be of the same dubious, politically "fixed" kind used 12 years ago to "justify" the U.S.-led attack on Iraq. We saw no credible evidence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq then; we see no credible evidence of a Russian invasion now. Twelve years ago, former Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, mindful of the flimsiness of the evidence on Iraqi WMD, refused to join in the attack on Iraq. In our view, you should be appropriately suspicions of charges made by the US State Department and NATO officials alleging a Russian invasion of Ukraine.

President Barack Obama tried yesterday to cool the rhetoric of his own senior diplomats and the corporate media, when he publicly described recent activity in the Ukraine, as "a continuation of what’s been taking place for months now … it’s not really a shift."

Obama, however, has only tenuous control over the policymakers in his administration – who, sadly, lack much sense of history, know little of war, and substitute anti-Russian invective for a policy. One year ago, hawkish State Department officials and their friends in the media very nearly got Mr. Obama to launch a major attack on Syria based, once again, on "intelligence" that was dubious, at best.

Largely because of the growing prominence of, and apparent reliance on, intelligence we believe to be spurious, we think the possibility of hostilities escalating beyond the borders of Ukraine has increased significantly over the past several days. More important, we believe that this likelihood can be avoided, depending on the degree of judicious skepticism you and other European leaders bring to the NATO summit next week.

Experience With Untruth

Hopefully, your advisers have reminded you of NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen’s checkered record for credibility. It appears to us that Rasmussen’s speeches continue to be drafted by Washington. This was abundantly clear on the day before the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq when, as Danish Prime Minister, he told his Parliament: "Iraq has weapons of mass destruction. This is not something we just believe. We know."

Photos can be worth a thousand words; they can also deceive. We have considerable experience collecting, analyzing, and reporting on all kinds of satellite and other imagery, as well as other kinds of intelligence. Suffice it to say that the images released by NATO on August 28 provide a very flimsy basis on which to charge Russia with invading Ukraine. Sadly, they bear a strong resemblance to the images shown by Colin Powell at the UN on February 5, 2003 that, likewise, proved nothing.

That same day, we warned President Bush that our former colleague analysts were "increasingly distressed at the politicization of intelligence" and told him flatly, "Powell’s presentation does not come close" to justifying war. We urged Mr. Bush to "widen the discussion … beyond the circle of those advisers clearly bent on a war for which we see no compelling reason and from which we believe the unintended consequences are likely to be catastrophic."

Consider Iraq today. Worse than catastrophic. Although President Vladimir Putin has until now showed considerable reserve on the conflict in the Ukraine, it behooves us to remember that Russia, too, can "shock and awe." In our view, if there is the slightest chance of that kind of thing eventually happening to Europe because of Ukraine, sober-minded leaders need to think this through very carefully.

If the photos that NATO and the US have released represent the best available "proof" of an invasion from Russia, our suspicions increase that a major effort is under way to fortify arguments for the NATO summit to approve actions that Russia is sure to regard as provocative. Caveat emptor is an expression with which you are no doubt familiar. Suffice it to add that one should be very cautious regarding what Mr. Rasmussen, or even Secretary of State John Kerry, are peddling.

We trust that your advisers have kept you informed regarding the crisis in Ukraine from the beginning of 2014, and how the possibility that Ukraine would become a member of NATO is anathema to the Kremlin. According to a February 1, 2008 cable (published by WikiLeaks) from the US embassy in Moscow to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, US Ambassador William Burns was called in by Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who explained Russia’s strong opposition to NATO membership for Ukraine.

Lavrov warned pointedly of "fears that the issue could potentially split the country in two, leading to violence or even, some claim, civil war, which would force Russia to decide whether to intervene." Burns gave his cable the unusual title, "NYET MEANS NYET: RUSSIA’S NATO ENLARGEMENT REDLINES," and sent it off to Washington with IMMEDIATE precedence. Two months later, at their summit in Bucharest NATO leaders issued a formal declaration that "Georgia and Ukraine will be in NATO."

Just yesterday, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk used his Facebook page to claim that, with the approval of Parliament that he has requested, the path to NATO membership is open. Yatsenyuk, of course, was Washington’s favorite pick to become prime minister after the February 22 coup d’etat in Kiev. "Yats is the guy," said Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland a few weeks before the coup, in an intercepted telephone conversation with US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt. You may recall that this is the same conversation in which Nuland said, "Fuck the EU."

Timing of the Russian "Invasion"

The conventional wisdom promoted by Kiev just a few weeks ago was that Ukrainian forces had the upper hand in fighting the anti-coup federalists in southeastern Ukraine, in what was largely portrayed as a mop-up operation. But that picture of the offensive originated almost solely from official government sources in Kiev. There were very few reports coming from the ground in southeastern Ukraine. There was one, however, quoting Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, that raised doubt about the reliability of the government’s portrayal.

According to the "press service of the President of Ukraine" on August 18, Poroshenko called for a "regrouping of Ukrainian military units involved in the operation of power in the East of the country. … Today we need to do the rearrangement of forces that will defend our territory and continued army offensives," said Poroshenko, adding, "we need to consider a new military operation in the new circumstances."

If the "new circumstances" meant successful advances by Ukrainian government forces, why would it be necessary to "regroup," to "rearrange" the forces? At about this time, sources on the ground began to report a string of successful attacks by the anti-coup federalists against government forces. According to these sources, it was the government army that was starting to take heavy casualties and lose ground, largely because of ineptitude and poor leadership.

Ten days later, as they became encircled and/or retreated, a ready-made excuse for this was to be found in the "Russian invasion." That is precisely when the fuzzy photos were released by NATO and reporters like the New York Times’ Michael Gordon were set loose to spread the word that "the Russians are coming." (Michael Gordon was one of the most egregious propagandists promoting the war on Iraq.)

No Invasion – But Plenty Other Russian Support

The anti-coup federalists in southeastern Ukraine enjoy considerable local support, partly as a result of government artillery strikes on major population centers. And we believe that Russian support probably has been pouring across the border and includes, significantly, excellent battlefield intelligence. But it is far from clear that this support includes tanks and artillery at this point – mostly because the federalists have been better led and surprisingly successful in pinning down government forces.

At the same time, we have little doubt that, if and when the federalists need them, the Russian tanks will come.

This is precisely why the situation demands a concerted effort for a ceasefire, which you know Kiev has so far been delaying. What is to be done at this point? In our view, Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk need to be told flat-out that membership in NATO is not in the cards – and that NATO has no intention of waging a proxy war with Russia – and especially not in support of the ragtag army of Ukraine. Other members of NATO need to be told the same thing.

How un-patriotic of them!  Sadly, you don't have to be an ex- or current NSA employee to see it.  All it takes is a reasonable person to pay attention (I know, this is the problem) to the web of disinfo and it is obviously a shit show.  As far as I can tell, here is where we are:


The Western political regime has been failing for a long time, and has maintained a constant "crisis-mode" in order to keep the facade up and the dissent down. 

The financial fraud has long since engulfed the entire economic system of the west, to where now virtually every market is dominated by these fraudsters.

To placate the inattentive masses, the narratives (political, social and economic) must become more and more bizzare in order to maintain the look of "sanity."

The corporate press are so desperate to maintain the failed narratives and faux polarities that little or no truth is revealed by the former 4th estate.

Because of the ongoing narrative, people die every day - through murder, hardship and suicide - so that a few can benefit from this failed society.

The most powerful and technologically advanced military in the world is still serving this failed regime.


If you try to find reason or good social conscience in any of it, it will do nothing but make you mentally ill, because all it is there to do is to hide the truth and to cover the tracks of traitor elites that will destroy everyone rather than relinquish power.   All of these tools and centralized powers will soon be turned upon Americans in true and all-out snake-eats-tail fashion. 


Since I have let go of the otherwise meaningless narratives peddled on MSM and by gov talking heads, I really do see where much of it all fits together.  What I'm saying is, there is much less cognitive dissonance when you realize that your society actually is caving in on itself.   The best thing I can suggest if and when you come to these conclusions is to set long-term constructive goals that assume the above is true.  Don't panic.  Make goals.  Here are some I came up with:

-become as self-reliant as possible, and as little reliant upon the gov as possible.

-without evangelizing it, always be prepared to help your loved ones understand it.

-have an emergency action plan (or plans) to cover a variety of contingencies.

-teach yourself as many skills and trades that would be important in a post-financial collapse world.

-network with your neighbors (face-to-face, not on FB, ffs).

-stay in shape.

-don't wallow in the sadness of a society that is destroying itself, or you will reflect it in one way or another (substance abuse, depression, etc).

Foreign policy in Washington has been a complete shambles for a decade now. Perhaps longer but the last 10 years have been just attrocious.


There is no strategy, no long term goal and no planning. It is clear as day to everyone. What doctrine are they following? PIVOTING towards 8,000 miles of open water?

You don't have to be Vladimir Putin to spot that US foreign policy has collapsed into some kind of strategic infancy.


Trying to spark a war with the Kremlin on Asian soil is nothing short of absolute suicide. Not even the entire world combined could defeat Russia in war. Just like the entire world combined could not defeat the US or China, or India you cannot defeat an indigenous population on their home turf, it's impossible to hold the ground. All that can be achieved with war is to assassinate a regime. Unless you follow Adolf Hitler down the road of genocide it is impossible to defeat any population of 100 million people.


The USA failed to convincingly defeat the Viet Cong and failed to bring change to Iraq. What do they think will happen when that go toe to toe with Russian military prowess and all the strategic and tactical sophistication that the Russians repeatedly show. Fire and Brimstone would rain down on North America from the Arctic Circle.


A hot war with Russia would yield nothing. Even if the West assassinated Putin, it is likely that an even more radical anti-West hardman would take his place.


If you're going to start a war, don't go after a strategically astute country who command a third of the worlds resources. With slavery abolshied, what can war actually achieve? In this day and age you cannot subjugate the defeated population. There are no spoils, only blowback.

The unstrategy main course is going very well thanks, with chaos theory for dessert. Ordo ab Chao with cigars for afters. At the table of Tabula Rasa, with the NuHistory pre-written in predictive programming, including Revelations, by those who are 'specially chosen to inherit the Earth'. Russia, like Serbia and Greece, are Orthdox, and therefore their traditions must also be destroyed.

Ziology: [Herzlese zio-, zio- + Greek -logi, -logy.] 1. The science of death on 'unchosen' living organisms, including their structure, function, growth, origin, evolution, and distribution. It includes botany and zoology and all their subdivisions. 2. The death processes or characteristic phenomena of a group or category of living organisms: the biology of viruses. 3. The surplanting of plant and animal life of a specific area or region.

When was the word/concept of Zion first used? From the Herzl Museum portal (I suppose it's authentic or would have been shot down):

The origin of the word Zionism is, of course, the word Zion. That word, in itself, is one of the stranger words in the Hebrew language, meaning at one and the same time, both a place and an idea. Even the place identified as Zion has changed with time. Originally identified with a Jebusite (Canaanite) citadel, conquered by David and first mentioned in our sources, in that context, the place of Zion shifted substantially with time. Always it meant part of Jerusalem, but which precise part changed to include different parts of the city in different periods. At some times it was used to refer to the whole city.

This is an incredibly informative website, and very highly recommended. Good to know who is a mortal threat to all I hold dear.

But probably only where they think it counts.  I wouldn't be surprised if we stuck to all of the various START treaties, because we could still annhilate the world while adhearing to them.  OTOH, Russia has made many of its newer ICBMs and SLBMs such that they could be made to violate those treaties in a hurry while not actually deploying them in a way that violates them, or so we're told.  They've built them with the potential to MIRV the fuck out of them, while not actually deploying them with more warheads than the treaties allow. 


Speaking of, since ZH is doing a lot of geopolitics these days, it might be worth it for the Tylers to compile all that exists in the public domain on Russia's current nuclear arsenal.  Such a compilation wouldn't be 100% accurate, but as with all things involving nuclear warheads, close is good enough.

You truly are a moron. 

"Technical Director, World Geopolitical & Military Analysis, NSA" is not the director of the NSA, who have always been 3 star general and flag officers of the US military.

William Binney was essentially the guy who developed and administered computer networks for a directorate in the NSA. He was never Senior Executive Service. I think the highest paygrade he achieved was GS-14, which is small potatos in DC. He never ran any directorate, division or branch within NSA. He has not been in the loop at NSA for 13 years, and really has no clue what he is talking about at this point. No one disconeected from an organization for 13 years, especially one as compartmentalized and secretative as the NSA, possible could. 

Again, the headline of the article is blatantly factually incorrect, and so the rest of the article's contents should be treated with great suspicion. 

I am not a friend of the NSA. I think their spying on US citizens without warrant is uncontitutional and people there need to be fired and/or sent to jail, starting with Clapper who lied to congress. But facts are facts, and you do your cause no service by just making shit up.

Oh, BTW, his last job at NSA was as "Technical Lead," which looks to me like a demotion. My take is he is disgruntled. Perhaps it is because he did not like what he saw there and tried to stop it, but he resigned one month after 9/11, before the NSA started all this domestic spying crap. In the end, it may not really matter what his motives are, but you do have to take everything he claims with a grain of salt and try to verify all. His self-puffery does not lend him credence, however. Having said that, trust no one, and do not swallow anyone's tripe just because of a personal inclination or bias, and facts really are facts. Ignore them at your own peril.

- The very fact that they didn't prosecute him for the things he was saying seems 51% in his advantage that he is a smart guy that outsmarted the Federal Government, DOJ, and the FBI.

But maybe that is too specific for you since it draws readers to look for videos and to read documents(dangerous).

He certainly worked at the NSA, though, as a director. You are the one attempting to conflate that with Big Poppa Head of NSA Starfleet Command.

Let's get this straight.  No article precedes "director" in the headline.  If the article "the" preceded "director" it would be false, but it doesn't so it's not. 

My ex-employer had dozens of Chiefs of several different levels, including one in particular who was "COD," "CD1," or "Chief of Department."  It's false to claim the dozens of Chiefs not COD are not each a Chief. 

Exactly how is a Technical Director not a Director?

I agree it's more accurate if the Title included the modifyer "Technical" in front of Director but it's not false to omit the word.

I presume he answered directly to The Director or only one person removed.

Brave Sir Robin is not very smart, a Government sponsored troll, or both.

Where to start a director of any group at a 3 letter agency should be at least a grade 15 or more likely SES on the pay scale. Unless I am mistaken there are no SES pay grade employees who aren't in management as directors of some sort.

Here is a chart of equivalent military rank and pay scales along with the equivalent pay scale and rank for a civilian.

Your civilian pay grade determines your rank when dealing working with the military within the DOD. An E6 for example would have to treat a GS11 for example as lieutenant as far as rank and command goes.

There are a lot of layers of directors in agencies like the NSA.

You may have one director who is the head of all SIGINT for example then directors (lower SES pay scales) of individual groups under SIGINT. Then you have upper management directors above the head of all SIGINT. The organizational structure is the organizational structure regardless. It has to be uniform and modular to be able to integrate all these sub 3 letter agencies under any one department to function in an orderly fashion.

 Binney at a minimum would have been either an equivalent Captain or Lower Rear Admiral/Brigadier General(other services equivalent) in rank.

That rank is a 1 star general....

The EU and USSA want war. They know their economies are tanking with no hope of reviving them (yes, QE is a total disaster and they know it), and a war would be a very convenient scapegoat to blame it all on. In the public's eye, the politicians would come out smelling like a rose, and of course they would never do any of the actual fighting themselves.

The only potential monkey wrench would be if it turned into a nuclear war. They will hide in their fallout shelters and survive, but the masses that they need to support and make them rich will be gone.

The US and the EU want what they thought they had, and still might get.  They want low-level guerrilla war through proxies.  They don't want open, full-on war.  They want this to take as long for Russia as Afghanistan is taking for us, and for that matter,as it did for the Russians 30 years ago.  That way maximum damage can be done to potential rivals Russia and the EU.

The EU hasn't yet figured out that the US is their enemy too, strategically.  Or if they have, they haven't figured out how to act accordingly.

'The EU and the USSA want war'.

After polling the 700 million or so citizens, Faux and Sky News found that only the 'important' people in the E.U. and the USSA actually WANT 'war' (all 250 or so, and only if 'war' means that their unlimited rations of whateverthefucktheywant goes up in cost in a commensory manner to their ability to pay). Since they are the only ones deemed to be 'important', the MSM has been trotting them out to push for the war.

Well, I certainly hope that is the case. I've had a theory that I've kept to myself mainly because I have absolutely no proof and it sounds pretty wacked out even to this nutjob. It goes something along these lines. The PTB have delayed the collapse long enough (using 911, etc.,) so that they could develop/refine (whatever) the means for producing (3d printers, robotics, ect) servants and ways to continue on in their opulance without the inconvenience of people who could usurp them. It's very conspiratorial and Dr Evil ish (even for me) but given all the leaks about DUMBs (deep underground military bases), technology suppressed (free energy or VERY efficient engines), ETC.,  is it possible that these bastards are THAT fucked up? Perhaps I picked the wrong year to stop sniffing glue?

Well put.  I can hardly believe TPTB allow this site to exist.

I recently thought of the following: we're in a brief deficit lull for the next 3-5 years, running only about $.5T annual.  After that all bets off, entitlements start steep upward deficit spiral with unknown untested ceiling.  If interest rates are forced upward, we're toast.   

If they wait till later to start a big war, the deficit won't really allow for it.  They'd have to tell people to starve to feed the war effort, and that won't go over well.  If they start the war now, later when "entitlements" rear their ulgy head, TPTB can force draconian cuts, which will be easier to force because the populace will be terrified because of the ongoing war.

They have a short window to start the fireworks, and fireworks they intend to burn.

There is no option but to hope that rational, sustainable, decent, humanity can edge out the viscious madness that is being deliberately kaoticised on our heads by the GloBAALists, in time for us as a species to start honestly dealing with the environmental collapse that is our legacy (and thanks) to the planet that symbiotically spawned us (Fuku, chemtrails, HAARP, nano, synbio etc).

35 years ago I rode a bicycle for 3 months through Morrocco, sleeping in a tent, and dealing direct with locals. It was raw, and very exciting. It was pre package-tourism, and many many desperate people trying to get (to Europe) out from under the thumb of a brutal monarchy. Political dissent was mortally dangerous. I was told by students there that a course in Political Science had suddenly and unexpectedly been offered at Rabat University, to the surprise of the deeply dissastisfied and interested youth. 20 or so of those who were accepted subsequently 'dissappeared'. It had been a 'filter operation'.

No fear. Peace.

I was in Morroco about the same time and prepackaged tourism was very much in evidence. I remember standing outside a walled compound in Marrakesh full of European tourists for example. I also remember visiting the ski lodge area of the Atlas mountains - another prepackaged tourist destination. Perhaps you never ventured near such places? Of course, it was a hassle walking the streets near the tourist areas because the Morrocans would be like flies on shit asking to purchase your watch, your suitcase, you name it. Why? There were huge import taxes on manufactured goods. I remember seeing Tupperware in a shop window downtown Casablanca displayed like luxury goods - with prices to match. I had a plastic "pilots suitcase" I bought at Sears for $10 that shopowners were constantly trying to buy from me. The first time I was in a shop just after arriving in Tangiers, a leather goods shop, and one of the guys hanging around felt the Sears special and mutter the word "plastique". I thought they were making fun of me and my cheap suitcase until they offered to trade for any leather suitcase in the shop.

Not singling out US package tourists (and have seen topless Euro babes offending local Greeks in their remote islands, and Aussies/Brits/Kiwis/Dutch/Germans drunkenly offending in many countries), but they had a reputation for being loud, brash and insensitve, and carrying on like they owned the place.

Yeah, but the Canadians don't matter as over 20% of them are foreign born (most of those being Chinese & Indians). And, since it's the Conservatives who are beating the drums of war, you can safely subtract all native Quebequers from the rest. All in all, at least one third of the Canadian population doesn't pay ANY attention to the noises coming from Ottawa. Besides, it looks quite probable that the Conservatives (currently in power for about 10 years now) will lose the federal elections scheduled next year. Nothing serious to be seen there... lots of drama, but very little substance.

I think it is London Red Shield then it goes through America.   The news media in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, et al has been totally manipulated for a long long time. All the western zio media is demonizing Putin.

Remember the scene in JFK where Jim Garrison meets with the black ops intel guy (played by Donald Sutherland).  He sees the JFK assasination in the news papers in NZ or AU before it happens.  Some people may not like Oliver Stone but he is pretty much against these whole evil MIC govt too.  He did his homework on JFK but left a few things out.

Oliver Stone's "JFK" movie is pretty accurate except for glaring omission in homage to Zionists who own Stone and all/most of Hollywood.  Stone left out that JFK told Israel they may not go nuclear, knowing it would set off a horrible arms race in the ME.

Six months after Johnson took office, Israel was a happy nuclear armed nation.  

Coincidence, not.   

Of course, JFK also intended to dismantle the 4th Estate (CIA) because he saw they were completely out of control.

Let's see JFK's enemies list:

Israel's Mossad: check

CIA: check

The Mob, headed by Judaic Meyer Lanskey: check (see the first one, Israel)

In the Mob's defense, JFK seems to be partly to blame.  Was he the only one in the world who didn't know Joe purchased IL in the vote?  About 90% of IL Teamsters are non-Catholics with strong distrust for Catholics.  Joe tells his mob buddies to order the Teamsters in IL to vote for JFK.  JFK wins IL and the election.

Then six months later Bobby tosses most of the Mob leaders in prison.  What's up with that?

Stone left out the punchline and had enough in there to know what was really going on.  JFK also was going after the Fed.  Remember the JFK silver dollars and I think he had silver dies and other coins.

The Kennedys made lots of enemies and the worst mistake was taking zio-LBJ in their tent.  Meyer Lansky made his early money importing heroin into the uSA via Mexico.

The proposed and highly stupid 'forward' NATO force will be European and largely British. So if anyone is going to get their arse handed to them it will be them. 


By the way if you read in more detail over 20,000 British soldiers were also 'massacred' during the same Gallipoli campaign. This included unknown thousands of Turks and over 10,000 French. When the Murdoch, sorry, Australian media reinforces the mythology of nation through Gallipoli it’s as if no one else except Australians were there. Even the enemy does not get a mention.

USS Australia under the firm hand Admiralty of Bishop Abbot will smack for NATO anywhere in the world that the WZC instructs it.

Battlehardening our troops and integrating our (US) weapons systems with the US in combat is necessary to counter the commie threat from above us. All the way to China. We even have a ripper livefire playtime going on right now with all those hunky marines that want to lick aussie muff in Darwin:

Oh what's this? The commies want to play too? Confused? (clue: look thru the PRISM of a global army. to fight?1/ETs 2/'the people')

Moar woar for the MISC.

All out war propaganda in Western Prestitute should truly worry all of us. It increasingly looks like the fascist neocons in wdc and their banksters want an open war with Russia. I hope sanity will prevail and Europeans will be smart enough to walk away from that nonsense.

I guess that those preppers that have bunkers 26 feet underground may have had a point. Dunno if they will ultimately live this out but are in much better shape than those of us that have been butt hurt over them.

Touch'e preppers, you nutty fuckers may be right.

And for sure as hell, if there;s any life left on the planet when they come rolling out of their caves that life will cut the heads off every one of those bastards and put it on a pike.

It's simply false to state that this Administration has no military experience. The irony that these are a bunch of Vietnam vets should be lost on no one. Apparently it was lost in these authors however. I could understand if these "back benchers" were to claim a lack of knowledge of the Middle East...but everyone of these folks save the President is a veteran of the Cold War and it's aftermath. They didn't just live that history...all of them were
Instrumental in creating it.

Lot of moving parts here with the hardest reaction indeed saying "nyet" to all this. Without explicitly stating the "nyet" option and saying "we have no plan" only inflames the situation.

There is a point of "no rhetoric return"...where the words used to justify an exit strategy instead make us look weak and cause the real thing to break out. Seems to me "we're there" actually.

Even in nature animals assume a threatening pose...only humans just start attacking then add on ye olde "there's more where that came from phucker" rejoinder.

The Art of Diplomacy revolves around creation a dialogue that precludes said rejoinder. I don't even know why I bother talking about...everyone I might just wants war, deprivation and death...OF EVERYBODY.

I mean "let's gin up voting blocs" as a solution? This sounds like the recipe for a total catastrophe to me.

There won't be any war. They don't have people ready to fight such a war, especially with a country like Russia. Even the dumbed down Europeans still remember that Russia was the graveyard for 2 European empires. Then it's the Americans who lost over 4000 people fighting some towel heads in the easiest terrain possible. Imagine going to offensive in North Dakota sometime in January, and having to march all the way to the Hudson Bay (for some sort of victory). That can give you an approximate idea about what a Russian war would start to feel like. Or, better yet, ask a German veteran of WWII (preferably one that made it out of Stalingrad...)

If the Russians keep this up... yes there will be a war... at least between Ukraine and Russia.  i don't know how many of you actually keep in touch with Ukrainians on a daily basis... but it seems to me that they will fight.  

The seperatists have basically turned those two cities into hellholes.  The locals don't even want them there anymore (pillaging, theft, and general breakdown of law and order).

You can read what a Russian journalist himself says about it:

PS: they were so suspicious... they arrested him!

btw, its hard for me to believe that people do not believe that Russian units are operating in Ukraine, when Ukraine just sent some captured paratroopers back.  Back when Putin was denying everything about green men, i had a friend in Sevastopol (father in Russian Navy) who was in a place to know... tell me point blank that they were Russian troops.  Meanwhile the news organizations here in the West seemed clueless.  Of course Putin was lying through his teeth.

Going by half the comments here, most folks on here seem just about as conspiratorial in belief as the Russian folks that hang out on the Anti-Maydan discussion groups.  No matter what kind of problem there is... the root cause (in their minds) always backtracks to something that the USA has done to them and a conspiracy will be invented to make it so.

The Ukies had their asses handed to them by a ragtag of nobodies. Even if you assume that 1000 or 1500 Russians fought there, they were able to totally destroy the Ukie frontline and push them back while inflicting huge losses. And, they did that with no air support. Now, imagine that Russians would really send their army in... it would all be finished in no time. But the Russians are smarter than that, they just let the Ukies kill each other until Kiew calls it quits. No amount of blaberring in Kiev will change the facts on the ground. That turkey is done... stick a fork in it !

Yes, Mr. Binney, great that you want to stop a shooting war but more to the concern of most Americans:  Was the NSA involved in the hacking of the accounts of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and other Hollywood stars with iCloud accounts? Sure sounds like something those peeping toms in the NSA would do in between sending "confidential informant" tips to the police to get people arrested illegally.  Well, Binney, we are waiting for an answer.  And don't answer that doorbell! Get off the grid!

And I can only imagine teen boys have been clicking every link available on the internet in the last 48 hours, so the spread of trojans/viruses must be going at a very good click as well.  Then again, do they even need trojans, when they have full surveillance and hardware backdoors?

Think about it for a second. these people did this because they know something we do not. And they are taking drastic action.

Now, what might they be aware of that we do not know? It is worse than we can imagine. And you only do things like this once the machine has been started, not when they are thinking about starting the machine. I fear things have been set in motion. What I see day to day only confirms this. It is a very big deal if they try to cut Russia out of SWIFT. Very big.

In the old days maybe. We're in the technocrazy now. Drones, bots, DEW, HAARP etc. I dont think there were that many 'allied' people on the ground during Dresden, and the 'Dunkirk' extravaganza will never be needed again IMO. Hitler's 'secret weapons' were highly advanced toward the end of his reign. Doodlebugs were falling on London and V2 was good to go, the almost  Messerschitt jet would have carved up Spitfires and Mustangs, and heavy water for their nuclear programme was made. Other deep tech (for the era) was taken to the US under Operation Paperclip, and included the tech and technicians who got NASA off the ground. Literally.

Couple of what I would call numerologically dangerous days next month. Doesn't mean something will happen of major substance but they are days to pay a little more attention to. The bottom line this stuff is all people driven, they just choose numerology that has significant symbolism to whatever idoltry they worship.

- We just don't know from the picture if the Military was doing the Sodomy or if the charge was against someone else
- One Clue is that A Military Enlistment is Indentured Servitude, for real, you lose more than just rights, people with power get to play with your life as if they were Royalty, and you will never know who is playing with your life from what low level or very high level like the Presidency or from the Banker Level...

These guys (and girls) put the "Intelligence" back in Intelligence.

I am familiar with a couple of these people... they are smarter than me and wish their type was more responsible for our US Agencies. Political appointees abound in Federal Government. Networking is primary in our military, in our intelligence, and in other government agencies. This creates favoritism and "power & Loyalty"... which is often protested with grievances filed against supervisors and others.

- Hat Tip to these Intelligence guys for figuring out how to stand against the corruption
- Hat Tip to all US Watchdogs and Watch Groups
- Honorable Mention to Whistleblowers... who are so numerous that we can't mention them all without missing some of them
