Pepe Escobar  :: Crimea and Western 'values' #Media #US #EU #Journalism #Geo-politics #Russia #Putin | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

Every sane sentient being knows that Ukraine's "unity" is not worth a new hot or warm war. Or even the current Western-peddled Cold War-style hysteria. Especially when Russia, once again, fights fascism - as embodied by some of the key players now in power in Kiev, and the US and EU's response is to relentlessly demonize Russia.

Crimea - historically, culturally, sentimentally - is Russian, conquered by Catherine the Great from the Ottomans in 1783. Sevastopol was founded by Catherine. If a swing band would play



a version of I Left My Heart in Sevastopol, all hearts involved would be Russian.

Yet those eminent Western practitioners of state idolatry have ruled that the population of Crimea has no right to conduct a referendum to decide its future - be it rejoining Russia or remaining in Ukraine with a huge degree of autonomy, according to the 1992 constitution. The eminences could not possibly admit that does not suit their geopolitical power play.

Quociente Cultural 's insight:

Translation via FB »»»


interfax.ru is reporting that Crimea will nationalize their gas/oil once the referendum is passed. Is this true? Is this even more reason the US wants to block the vote?

Kiev's protesters: Ukraine uprising was no neo-Nazi power-grab - Check Pepe Escobar comment 2 | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it
The Guardian's pitiful attempt to whitewash the fascist/neo-nazi brigade in Kiev. On top of it penned by the irretrievably mediocre Harding - author of a crappy hatchet job on the "new brutal Russia" sold by The Guardian for only 5.99 sterling. It would be oh so complicated to write a story explaining that yes, there was a legitimate anti-corruption grassroots/protest movement in Kiev that was hijacked in no time by American NGOs and the State Dept., instrumentalized and expanded to include a coup carried out by fascists and neo-nazis. But that would not help The Guardian's desperate attempts to crack the US market, would it? As life returns to normal in Kiev, Luke Harding encounters frustration over Russian claims of a fascist coup

« #Euromaidan may well be a broad-based grassroots movement of anarchists and other misguided leftists, motivated by US propaganda against alleged "corruption". Two things to note though:
1) The Maidan mob has shown utter disrespect for the Ukrainian state, its institutions, its Presidency and its unity. They have destroyed Ukraine and turned it into a Greater Galicia!
2) The leftists and centrists are nothing but cannon fodders to be shot in the back by their Nazi / CIA masters. The Nazis created Euromaidan, controlled its "security" and now how all the positions of #POWER (as in #violence) in the new junta. Parabyi has a position similar to Abdelhakim Belhadj as the commander of the#Tripoli Military Council. The Nazis in Kiev play the role of al–Qaeda in #Libya! » Petri Krohn

Fraud, Famine, and Fascism - The Ukrainian Genocide Myth from Hitler to Harvard #History #Propaganda

"Ukrainian" nationalism explained:

"This book documents how and why fraudulent stories about the Ukrainian famine of the 1930s made the presses worldwide and have become accepted as fact by almost everyone, despite the fact that they are provably false. The stories of millions of deaths caused by famine in Ukraine in 1933 and 1934, supposedly caused by the effects of the Soviet system, were fabricated by Nazi propagandists in their propaganda campaigns against Bolshevism. The spread of these stories to America took route through the presses of William Randolph Hearst, who has also since been proven, as I have documented on this website, to have been working in collaboration with the Nazis and publishing Nazi propaganda in mainstream American publications throughout the later half of the 1930s and into the 1940s.

These fabrications, which are well documented in this book, have become almost completely accepted as facts by Americans, and these fabrications have been repeatedly used, and are still used, by politicians despite the fact that they are provably false and were provably produced by a Nazi conspirator. The fact that William Randolph Hearst was conspiring with the Nazis during the 1930s is proven outside of this book, and is a part of official American government record, yet his fabricated publications about the Ukrainian famine are still referenced as fact today."

Saudi Arabia demanded that Qatar shut down Al-Jazeera and two think tanks during a recent meeting of the Gulf Cooperation Council, a source close to someone who attended the talks told AFP Friday. Riyadh demanded the closure of the pan-Arab broadcaster as well as the Brookings Doha Center and the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies, the source said on condition of anonymity. After the reportedly heated March 5 GCC meeting, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates recalled their ambassadors from fellow member Qatar, which they accuse of interfering in their internal affairs and supporting the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Vineyard of the Saker: Don't listen to what they say - look at what they do

The Vineyard of the Saker: Don't listen to what they say - look at what they do | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

Try out this thought experiment.  Imagine for one minute that you are a fundementally decent and honest person who, by an ironic twist of history, has been put in power during an armed insurrection basically conducted by neo-Fascist thugs who do not represent the majority of the people of your country.  They are now making demands and they want to become part of your new government.  You, of course, being a decent and honest person, are uncomfortable with that situation, but things being as they are, you have to accept the facts on the ground and take a pragmatic decision: either include some of them in your newly formed government, or risk being overthrown.

What would you do?

Well, I suppose that you would have to give the neo-Fascists a certain number of ministerial positions.  Which ones would you give them?  I think that the logical approach would give them the ministries where they might to a halfway decent job and which would minimize the harm that these crazies could do to your country, right?  So, let's look at my personal choices would be:

1) Ministry of Sports and Youth (Nazis and Fascists are good at sports and health issues)
2) Ministry of Transportation (trains will run on time)
3) Ministry of Infrastructure (Hitler built good roads)
4) Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food (no food shortages even in 1945 Berlin)
5) Ministry of Environmental Affairs (pagans often worship nature)

One would imagine that Mr Iatseniuk would do something very similar, right?

Well, not quite.  Check out where he put his neo-Facists:
