Alarm in Donetsk as people brace for Ukrainian forces attack

Alarm in Donetsk as people brace for Ukrainian forces attack | Global politics | Scoop.it
People are clearing shelves in Donetsk city shops, fearing a new wave of attack and storming of the city by Ukrainian troops. Fighter jets are buzzing overhead in the sky, as self-defense prepares for a fight in the occupied administrative buildings.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

It is increasingly apparent that Kiev treats the East and South of Ukraine as colonies. As a result of its prohibition of Russian as an official language and the region's call to self-determination, now the coup-originated authorities are determined to drown in blood and submission the region's free will. In the meantime the West conspires with the semi-Nazi government and provides media and political cover, perhaps also military support. It remains to be seen if Russia will be able to withstand pressure to intervene, especially if the Russian public opinion grows concerned with the bloodshed.

The austerity measures were meant to fulfill some of the key conditions for up to $25 billion in low-interest loans that Ukraine expects from the International Monetary Fund and other lenders over the next four years.

Эксперт в эфире RT: Абсурдно обвинять в убийстве Бориса Немцова Кремль | Global politics | Scoop.it
Западные аналитики, приглашённые RT в эфир передачи Cross Talk, удивлены тому, как однобоко американские СМИ освещают убийство политика Бориса Немцова. Они убеждены, что версия об убийстве по политическим мотивам не имеет оснований, ведь Немцов давно уже перестал играть весомую роль в рядах российской оппозиции.

The brainwashing of the populace by the mainstream media machine has been effective beyond Murdoch's wildest imagination. Sometime in the last few decades, journalists abandoned their stance as independent seekers of the truth and merely spewed whatever propaganda best suited to advancing their advertisers' interests.

OpEdNews Article: Article: The Real Story on Iran, US, Russia and China

OpEdNews Article: Article: The Real Story on Iran, US, Russia and China | Global politics | Scoop.it
What's at stake at the highest level has been known to all major players for ages. Tehran won't settle for anything less than a swift end to the current nasty, illegal package of sanctions. Yet Washington, under the cloud of the self-described "Don't Do Stupid Stuff" Obama administration, keeps changing the goal posts as negotiations advance.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Predictably, Bibi lumped as evil forces lurking in his "neighborhood" everyone from Iran and "Lebanon" (he meant Hezbollah) to Assad's Syria and Hamas. But not ISIS/ISIL/Daesh. So a non-nuclear Iran is a worse threat to civilization than the fake, beheading-addicted Caliphate.

Espousing such a worldview Bibi would not even qualify as an extra on House of Cards -- the one on Netflix. Meanwhile, the real Israel story -- the illegal occupation/apartheid imposed on Palestine -- continues, obscured by the usual gaggle of somnambulists in the Bibi-raided House of Cards -- sorry -- US Congress.
