"Out Of My Face Please" - Why Are US Soldiers In Mariupol?

Tyler Durden's picture

Amid the devastation of yesterday's Mariupol artillery strikes which killed or wounded dozens, which was promptly blamed by both sides on the "adversary" - and has been proclaimed by both 'sides' (more on that later) as more violent than before the truce - an 'odd' clip has emerged that appears to provide all the 'proof' a US intelligence officer would need to surmise that US military boots are on the ground in Ukraine. As the following clip shows, a Ukrainian journalist approaches what she thinks is a Ukrainian soldier (since he is wearing a Ukrainian military uniform and is carrying an AK) and asked him as they run through the battlezone, "tell me, what happened here?" His response, which requires no translation, speaks for itself.

Forward to 2:36 for the 'Ukrainian' soldier's response:

Here is a clip which focuses just on the exchange in question:

With daily reportage of the 'invasion' of Russian military forces into Ukraine territory (admittedly unconfirmed by NATO), this clip raises many questions about American involvement in the ongoing conflict - most of all, was the US involved in the "staging" the Mariupol massacre, and if so it is clear who should be blamed (and isolated).

Of course, US troops, or at least mercs, on the ground, should not be a total surprise, since just 2 months ago, we discussed the hacked US documents that revealed the extent of undisclosed US "lethal aid" being given to the Ukraine army. What was apparently left unleaked was the part of the US aid also includes US-speaking soldiers. The only question is whether US taxpayers are paying their wages.

Someone has already clipped your clip here Tyler!

Not sure its an American, but definitely a native speaker.  A Brit perhaps?  

If it is an American -- he has a unique North-Eastern accent I haven't heard before.   

papaswamp's picture

Agreed...plus the 'please'... We just arent polite in combat mode.

Stackers's picture

Yep, sounded like a Brit to me as well.

Haus-Targaryen's picture

Whoever he is -- I would imagine its a Blackwater type, and not some Marine on vacation looking to kill something.  

Still though, if the Seperatists can get their hands on a native English speaker -- all hell could break loose, depending on how they handle it.   

cifo's picture

It could also be someone looking for some fun. Like reality Call of duty. Or Doom.

Macchendra's picture

Also, his hiding his face is mens rea that he is an american soldier.  Also, he seems to lack the moral loophole when confronted that is in a mercenary's psychological profile.

Liberal's picture

As a staunch liberal, I think he sounded very North Korean.

Occident Mortal's picture

As a Brit myself I can assure you 100%. This guy is not British.

That is NOT a British accent. Also our special forces don't say please and thank you, they scream "Sit DOWN and SHUT THE FUCK UP or I will cut your FUCKING HEAD OFF" they don't ask twice.

He is North American. Canadian or from US East Coast.

Relax people ~ The EM-50 Urban Assault Vehicle just took ma wrong turn & that was Russell Ziskey just trying to get directions to get it back on course.

I'd be more surprised if special forces weren't there and even more surprised if the mercs weren't.

This is the kind of stuff that shadow governments lust for...

He looks and sounds Russian to me.

Clever and devious lot, those Russians.

You guys are missing the whole point.  That footage was not taken in Ukraine.  It was taken in Detroit.

Pure Studio New Jersey. Matt Bevilaqua, Sopranos.

Heck, the actor who played him is a criminal, they might've made him do a voice-over.

I reference a very humorous cop propaganda piece called "Techniques & Mechanics of Arrest" starring the weird pervy elder guy from the Matrix and Omega Man, plus Ned Beatty of "getting reamed in the ass" fame. I shit you not,

Hollywood is fucking perverted.

Buckaroo Banzai's picture

Yes if he is an American, it definitely sounds more like a New Jersey accent than anything else. Or possibly a Philadelphia accent. I am not 100% convinced he is American though. The word "face" sounded rather odd.

He is definitely not British or Canadian. 

Possibly South African?

A South African would have said "Uit my gesig, man!"

I've shoplifted enough SA pootie to know what they sound like.

He's an American Soldier.

His accent is definately American, not Canadian, and the "please" is the result of standard training for US soldiers when dealing with civilians.

This "brit" bullshit is just damage control by Obamunists.

Israel trying to make another Silicon Valley in the Ukraine... Not going so well...

McMolotov's picture

Arguing about his accent is a distraction from the main points, which are:

A) He sure as hell isn't Ukrainian.

B) He sure as hell isn't Russian.

C) He sure as hell has the accent of someone from the West.

This is proof positive that the West has "boots on the ground" in Ukraine. The West has thus far produced much less evidence than these few seconds that there are Russian troops on Ukrainian soil. This should blow the whole US-NATO narrative out of the water, but it will never be reported in the West aside from "fringe blogs" like ZH.

kaa1016's picture

You guys need to stop the shit. That is not a US soldier. That is a contractor, like Blackwater or Xe or whatever they call themselves. Where there is shooting, contractors are there. That's why they are called mercenaries.

Dave Thomas's picture

Sounds like a guy named Bernie who used to work at the Fort Lee Diner lol.

McMolotov's picture

We don't know if he's a soldier or a contractor. What we do know with a high degree of certainty is that he's from a Western nation, being paid by a Western nation, to fight someplace that no Western nation should be involved.

In light of that, it seems rather pointless to argue over whether he's a soldier or a mercenary. Neither one should be there, especially in light of the flimsy "evidence" the West has produced with regard to alleged Russian interference.

Since the draft ended, all U.S. troops are mercenaries.

The Blank Stare's picture

Brits don't interchange their "t's" with "d's"


For example 

Brit-potato US-patado

So, "ou-da my face" is definitely US.


And "please"? Who says that but an educadeted operative

DaveyJones's picture

not a brit

agree with the others east coast, northern

not canadian

(says the english major)

Lore's picture

Note the prounciation of "out" using the short 'a' or '[æ] vowel, as in "æoutta my face."  That is a distinct eastern-state Americanism. MORE HERE.

Going forward, it will be amusing to witness American troops attempting to fake accents from other parts of the world.  "Me luv you long time!"

JuliaS's picture

It's WW2 and we're bickering whether the fascist is German, Italian or Japanese.

You think Russians and Ukrainians are concerned whether he's British, Canadian or American? Does it matters to them? All they see is a "Western invader". And to be honest, we haven't made any effort to differentiate ourselves as nations. American, British or Canadian - aside from army slang and healthcare back home is there a difference when it comes to messing up other people's backyards? Is there any difference as to where the English-speakers stand on Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Ukraine etc? I say, the merc couldn't be from any of the places and it wouldn't matter squat, because all the places are exactly the same.

"I would like to appeal in a special way to the men of the Army,
and in particular to the troops of the National Guard, the Police,
and the garrisons. Brothers, you belong to our own people. You
kill your own brother peasants; and in the face of an order to kill
that is given by a man, the law of God should prevail that says:
“Do not kill!” No soldier is obliged to obey an order counter to the
law of God. No one has to comply with an immoral law. It is time
now that you recover your conscience and obey its dictates rather
than the command of sin."

Frankly, he sounds just like Bruce Willis, who, as I'm sure you all know, hails from the Garden State.

Headbanger's picture

He's an American mercenary along with the dude ahead of him carrying weapons typical of the area.

But no big surprise cause Ukraine is probably paying huge money to these guys and it's a much better gig than the ME!

patb's picture

Ukraine is broke, they don't have the money for Blackwater.


It could be an adventure seeking bored, ultimate Yuppie Hobo,  but

it's more likely a merc working on contract to the CIA.

US mercs in the Ukraine are not being paid for with Uke money.

They are being paid by the CIA. Your tax dollars at work!

No way that was Detroit. Two things, First, no colored people. Second, the neighborhood looks too nice. In fact, I thought that I saw a shop in that clip that wasn't boarded up.
