Do yourself a favor and take some time to read this over the next few days. It is “a must-read for westerners needing to understand what is really happening in both the Ukraine and the wider Anglo-US-NATO globalisation drive which it brings into sharp focus.”
Firstly, let me say that sometimes it’s pleasant to be wrong. Well, I got it wrong. At the beginning of February my colleague, Elena Ponomarëva, and I discussed the question, could we take Crimea? I was a pessimist and said, 10% chance that we’ll take Crimea. We won’t get it because the West will react aggressively, and our authorities lack the courage. She said, on the contrary 90% chance that we take Crimea, and 10% chance that it doesn’t happen. She was right. I was wrong.
Without doubt, the re-unification with Crimea is a very important landmark. In a recent TV interview I said that this is genuinely the end of the disgraceful era which began in Malta on the 2-3rd Dec 1989, when Gorbachev surrendered absolutely everything to Bush, even what wasn’t asked for.
After that everything possible was given up. Rays of hope began to appear later, during the Putin administration. There was the war of 08.08.08. But later we failed to support Libya. Although we did put the foot down at Syria. But this is all far away from Russian lands. But Ukraine and Crimea – this is a completely new situation. We started to re-take our territory, little by little. Started doing as the Muscovite princes did in the 14th, 15th century, what the first Romanovs did, and the Stalin system in the 1930s, all of which was: leaving the historical zone of defeat.
The US has been behind the Ukrainian crisis from the beginning, but was initially flying low, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said. He added that if sanctions continue, Russia will have to reconsider who has access to key sectors of its economy.
“I think what is happening now shows us who really was mastering the process from the beginning. But in the beginning, the United States preferred to remain in the shadow,” Putin said, as quoted by RIA Novosti.
Putin stated that since the US has taken a lead role in resolving the political crisis in Ukraine, it is “telling that they originally were behind this process, but now they just have emerged as leaders” of it.
Yup. I’m waiting for Putin to release the evidence that 9-11 was a U.S./Israeli inside job.
I have close friends who believed in Obama; I didn’t, and I warned them. I’m not happy about being right. If Obama was actually different from Bush – who the repugnicans supported wholeheartedly – then he would have done things like close Gitmo and put a few other things back to rights, like vetoing the renewal of the Patriot Act and so forth. He could also have brought some people to justice who needed it, and more. He didn’t and this farcical “congressional gridlock” plays out to make us think that it is actually “another party” in power. It isn’t, it’s all a drama.
If this isn’t one of the creepier things you’ve seen in a while, then I don’t know what to tell you. Obama’s emotional expressions in this clip are one of a man who has been utterly defeated following several years of rampant cronyism and epic public failures. As such, it seems as if he is prepared to step up further to the “wanna be dictator” plate and just start doing whatever he wants via executive orders.
I mean, why even bother pretending to have a Congress at this point? Hasn’t this guy done enough harm…
It’s time for everyone to start opening up and sharing what they see with others. With polls showing that 90% of Americans are against bombing Syria into submission, we suspect you’ll be surprised just how many folks around you feel similarly. Don’t push it with anyone who is reluctant, just let them be and communicate with those who do give a damn. WATCH VIDEO AND SHARE!
