US State Dept and NYT ‘photo evidence’ case collapses

US State Dept and NYT ‘photo evidence’ case collapses | Global politics | Scoop.it
Pictures presented by Washington and Kiev as evidence of Russia's involvement in Ukraine, and published on Monday by the New York Times, were unverified and in fact contradicted the claims they were to support.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Another crude case of kompromat, a Ukrainian specialty. The US Administration is getting addicted to it. See Kerry and his anti-Semitic pamphlet, which is fake. Or the wide report of a Tatar leader showing a non-document banning him to enter Crimea, another fake. And now this. They aren't afraid of ridicule. Kompromat's role is to smear, it always remains something. But nowadays such items are actually too crude to swallow.

Russia 'forced' to launch military drills near border in response to Ukraine op - Moscow

Russia 'forced' to launch military drills near border in response to Ukraine op - Moscow | Global politics | Scoop.it
Russia has begun extensive military exercises near the Ukrainian border following the escalation of violence in eastern Ukraine.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The orders of the coup-imposed Kiev junta, as directly advised by CIA Director Brennan and US Vice President Biden, to launch an all-out military aggression against the population in Southeastern Ukrane are criminal, and will only signal the start of a bloody civil war in Ukraine, with the danger of overspilling her borders and beyond. Unless the Ukrainian army refuses to play a butcher role, tomorrow will be too late to talk, and only hatred, blood, and destruction will prevail, leaving Ukraine in a similar state to all countries which follow the chaos-enforcing imperialist diectives.

Ukraine coal miners on strike, refuse to pay Kiev coup damages bill

Ukraine coal miners on strike, refuse to pay Kiev coup damages bill | Global politics | Scoop.it
Over 2,000 coal miners in Lugansk region have been on strike for the second day running, demanding higher wages and refusing to accept a pay cut to fund the restoration of Kiev, which suffered damage during the coup that overthrew the government.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

International relations expert Mark Sleboda told RT that Kiev cannot afford losing control of “the real bread winner of the Ukraine” – the mining industry.

“The mining industry employs about 500,000 people throughout the region, provides about 15 percent of the country's GDP and coal alone is 30 percent of Ukraine's energy consumption,” Sleboda says.

How about Chechnya Russia.

  

Leave Chechnya alone, they are far better now, which is why they chose the Federation instead of becoming a Wahhabi theocratic and puppet regime. Crimea also chose to reject becoming a US/NATO military base.
What about Hawaii? It was annexed, wasn't it? Did they hold a referendum? Or do Portorricans enjoy as a non-state the same rights? Can they choose? And don't forget the deported inhabitants of Diego Garcia, poor souls. Look at Guantánamo, an occupied land for what it is used... The US is the las state to lecture anyone.
