  4. This has all the signatures of a mighty (nuclear) power-play. As Sunzi demonstrated millennia ago, all the military superiority in the world is meaningless and futile without a coherent political objective.

    So what’s the strategically anticipated outcome? Stalemate and fusion, annihilation, distraction?

    There’s an old Gypsy-Romany trick, cum tactic ~ “casting the glamour.”

    This is what the US dollar-fueled Dr Strangelove engine of dominance does on an epic (Hollywood) scale…blinding everyone with worthless über-fascist bling ~ peddling comic-book prosperity, rather than promoting principled (ecological) intelligence.

    People need to make up their minds about what is real and what life is all about.

    What is it they really want ~ ephemeral glamour or hard but honest truths?

  7. The US backed Ukraine putsch occurred after it was agreed by the protestors, Yanukovych, EU, and Russia to schedule elections and to compromise in other ways. It had a geopolitical purpose by the US, to prevent EU, and especially Germany, from becoming closer to Russia. The threat was to increase trade and other relations to make one bloc Eurasian bloc from the atlantic to the pacific, squeezing the US out of the dominant role.

  8. The truth about the sniper fire was told by the head of security under Yanukavych which was published, unfortunately I forget where. He was asked by the very members of Right Sector and Svoboda to stop the shootings in the building which was killing the rank and file. The building was in control of Perudiy, a cofounder of Svoboda and head of its military wing. He wouldn’t allow the police in the building, the threat being for his armed troop to attack them from the rear. They were shooting both the cops and demonstrators below, activating anger for the putsch.

    Perudiy, a Nazi leader, is currently the head of the military and police operation against the southeastern Ukrainians. Fotunately, the soldiers are very reluctant to shoot civilians and many of the riot police have already joined the people.

  9. I updated the post with a link to the transcript (I forgot to add it yesterday).

    Also added the German TV video with English subtitles that Michael was referring to.

  10. Respected economist Michael Hudson comes across as visibly shaken on air for the first time. For this to occur to a man of his stature is disturbing, leading one to think that his message here needs urgent, wide dissemination.

  14. To be fair, how can the American people be expected to become indignant over happenings in Ukraine, over the lies coming out of Washington, when the MSM is in cahoots with the liars in the White House. Majority of Americans don’t even know where Ukraine is. Ignorance and arrogance…dangerous combination.
