Must Read »»» Spring fails in Ukrainian plunderlan By Pepe Escobar

Must Read »»» Spring fails in Ukrainian plunderlan By Pepe Escobar | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

Here's the US's exceptionalist promotion of "democracy" in action; Washington has recognized a coup d'etat in Ukraine that regime-changed a - for all its glaring faults - democratically elected government. 

And here is Russian President Vladimir Putin, already last year,talking about how Russia and China decided to trade in roubles and yuan, and stressing how Russia needs to quit the "excessive monopoly" of the US dollar. He had to be aware the Empire would strike back. 

Now there's more; Russian presidential adviser Sergey Glazyev 


told RIA Novosti, "Russia will abandon the US dollar as a reserve currency if the United States initiates sanctions against theRussian Federation." 

So the Empire struck back by giving "a little help" to regime change in the Ukraine. And Moscow counter-punched by takingcontrol of Crimea in less than a day without firing a shot - with or without crack Spetsnaz brigades (UK-based think tanks say they are; Putin says they are not). 

Putin's assessment of what happened in Ukraine is factually correct; "an anti-constitutional takeover and armed seizure of power". It's open to endless, mostly nasty debate whether the Kremlin overreacted or not. Considering the record of outright demonization of both Russia and Putin going on for years - and now reaching fever pitch - the Kremlin's swift reaction was quite measured. 

Putin applied Sun Tzu to the letter, and now plays the US against the EU. He has made it clear Moscow does not need to "invade" Ukraine. The 1997 Ukraine-Russia partition treaty specifically allows Russian troops in Crimea. And Russia after all is an active proponent of state sovereignty; it's under this principle that Moscow refuses a Western "intervention" in Syria.

Think before you Fisk: 10 things the Economist got wrong on Ukraine - Stop the War Coalition

Think before you Fisk: 10 things the Economist got wrong on Ukraine - Stop the War Coalition | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

The Economist is the high priest of Anglo-Saxon hypocrisy – it preaches afree market for all, but backed “socialism for the banks” when the City needed a bailout.  It is no more consistent on world politics – international law for all, except for Britain and the USA.  In response to the recent article written by Stop the War Convenor Lindsey German (10 things to remember about the crisis in Ukraine and Crimea), an Economist blogger identified only as “JC”, decided to “Fisk” Stop the War (Britain and Ukraine: Fisking Stop the War).  It was quite revealing.  Here are ten things JC got wrong:

 “Neither Mr Cameron nor Mr Kerry ‘invaded’ Afghanistan or Iraq,” JC begins.  No, but Britain and the USA did – and it was an invasion, noquotation marks are necessary.  The Iraq war, like the Yugoslav one in 1999, was undertaken clearly in violation of international law, against countries making no threats to the USA or Britain, and without any UN sanction.  The Economist may take a view that these bloody violations of international law are acceptable, while Putin’s so-far bloodless occupation of the Crimea is an outrage, but not many outside the snug circles of the Anglosphere elite will be found to agree.  If the magazine genuinely wants a law-based world with all disputes resolved through negotiation and the United Nations, then it cannot continue to make exceptions for the likes ofBush and Blair – at least not if it wants to be taken seriously.

 

JC’s description of Yeltsin as a “modernising” premier (he was in fact President not premier) is perhaps the most absurd contention.  Under the stewardship of the inebriated Yeltsin, Russia’s economy shrank by half, its state assets were handed over to the emerging oligarchy in a corrupt privatisation process, no functioning party-political system was created and in the end Yeltsin could only be persuaded to leave office under cover of an amnesty for himself and his family for his venal crimes.  His foreign policy choices also stored up immense trouble for his successors, as is being seen today.   If this is modernisation, it sure makes the case for tradition.

Articles: Dangerous Times: Putin slaps down Euro-American Fantasyland

Articles: Dangerous Times: Putin slaps down Euro-American Fantasyland | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

When JFK looked weak to Nikita Khrushchev, we got the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1963. When Jimmy Carter bear-hugged Brezhnev, we got the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. When Bill Clinton failed to stop Bin Laden for seven whole years, we got 9/11/01 in New York City.

And when Obama clowned it up for the world, alienating our allies and bowing down to our deadly enemies, we got this week’s Russian invasion of the Ukraine.

And that’s only the beginning. Just you watch.

Putin is establishing a naval presence in Venezuela and Cuba. He already has a major naval base in Syria. He wants to control Middle Eastern oil, and by making Iran and Saudi Arabia dependent on him, he might be able to do it.

 

Obama has systematically dismantled Western and U.S. defenses, stabbed allies like Egypt’s Mubarak in the back, invaded Libya without a shred of justification, and backed murderous reactionary gangsters in Syria, Libya, Iran, and Egypt. Our president betrayed U.S. personnel in Benghazi, and purged our top military leaders. Soon he will turn over Iraq to Iran, andAfghanistan to the Taliban. When, through our bottomless folly, Iran gets the bomb, it will control both sides of the Persian Gulf, and run the Middle East through Turkey, Syria, and Lebanon.

 

The day after Putin predictably invaded the Ukraine, SecState John Kerry assured us that the new Tsar of all Russia would build up the Ukrainian economy --- after stealing its resources, as usual. In the White House Obama said several tough words out loud. But nobody now believes that the West will defend Eastern Europe, because America is led by a wet sock puppet and Europe has cannibalized its defenses to buy welfare votes from millions of radicalized Muslims. Russia is run by a KGB colonel, a seriously expansionist ruler, and nobody in the West is the least bit prepared. Germany curries favor with Moscow by paying extra-high prices for Russia’s natural gas. We’ve lost the plot -- but Putin hasn’t.

ASHTONISH »»» M of A - Ukraine: Ashton Phonecall On Maidan Snipers #EU #Kiev #Nazis #Snipers

Someone recorded a phone call between the Estonian foreign minister Paet and the EU high representative Ashton.

Paet reports from his talks with somewhat neutral people on the Maidan, including some Olga that Ashton also knows, during a recent visit in Kiev:

there is no trust of the people in the new government (2:35)all of them in the new government have a dirty past (2:50)the trust level (towards the new government) is absolutely low (3:20)enormous pressure against (party of the region) members of parliament (3:40)"uninvited visitors" enter in the night on party members (3:50)journalists who were with me saw during the day that one member of parliament was just beaten in front of the parliament (4:00)people will not leave the street before *real* reforms start, it is not enough that there is just change of government (4:20)the same Olga (from a civil society group) told me that people killed by snipers on both sides, among policemen and people on the street, that they were the same sniperskilling people from both sides, she showed me some photos and said she has a medical doctor and that it is the same handwriting and the same type of bullets and it is disturbing that the new coalition now don't want to investigate (8:25)There is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind snipers it was not Yanukovich but it was somebody from the new coalition. (8:55)it discredited itself from the very beginning this new coalition (9:20)

Ashton says "gosh" to the sniper revelation but then plays over it.

Note: This call does not prove that the snipers came from the new coalition site. But it is a hint that this must be investigated.

Using snipers in such fashion is not uncommon. Snipers shooting at both sides in a civil conflicthave been documented during the coup attempt against Chavez as well as during the red-shirt vs. yellow-shirt conflicts in Thailand.

Quociente Cultural 's insight:

"They fight and put to death in the belief there are two causes.
What they perceive as freedom in this world and what they think will be ultimate redemption in the next.

All it takes is one thought.

One thought to realize that all you have is now.
All our travails are as insigni­ficant as any minutia that exist on any spec that spins in the vast darkness and beyond.

We are nothing and yet .... we could be all

Nothing confounds or rips at the conscience of humanity than the willful slaughter of our most precious resource.  

So many children.

Innocence snuffed out for no other reason than the perception of social and religious boundar­ies.

How lost  is the mind that believes in the sanctif­ication of  suffering?

We are the personi­fication of waste ""  Syricide [ @Syricide ]
