A rather vacant look on that “mayor’s” face… I highly doubt the people who guard him even respect him…

Mrs De Carbonnel’s propaganda is so plain. Do you think this “journalist” (cough) have ever committed such colorful portraits of the Maidan puppets who were catapulted (un-elected) President and PM of Ukraine?

Whereas in the case of Maidan we have Mrs F*** the EU’s phone conversation to prove the meddling and the servants and masters game (“Yats” and “Klitsch”, remember?), in the case of Donetsk we only have the excellent journalistic bubbles of the fine investigative reporters at Reuters (cough cough cough).

This level of idiocy, manipulation, and unethical truth-twisting is getting so sickening! I still read Reuters to relax, laughing with the public comment writers.

Strings don’t have to be pulled directly, they know who has their backs, otherwise all this wouldn’t be happening. Watch China start moving on the many border disputes they have with surrounding countries. I’m sure there are Chinese people there that could implement this same trick, great way to expand your Countries territory. Lets see, lots of United States citizens in Canada and Mexico…

The chaos was fomented by Nuland, Ashton and company, all this hype here is baloney. NATO wants more regions to control and exploit using the newly installed puppets in Kiev. Libya, Syria are all suffering due to NATO schemes. Ukraine will have to work harder to rid themselves of the NATO clowns.

Of course there is Moscow involvement in Ukraine. If that makes a referendum process illegitimate why should anyone really believe the events in the ME for the past 14 years were legitimate or a true reflection of popular will? I never do.

The major powers are seeing to their own gut stuffing self-interest as they always do.

Ukraine will suffer no matter what gut stuffing power it chooses now. The big powers are always looking for an area to exercise their military muscles and it’s so much better for both to do it outside their legitimate territories.

Not even dogs like to soil in their own kennels.

rasPutin is the perfect psychotic dictator for a cursed Russia. rasPutins war with the world is going to drag the Russian economy into the toilet where it belongs. Threats for everyone, torture for those who disagree with him, and dead Ukrainians are rasPutins gifts and contempt for the world.
Russia is filth and rasPutin is insane.

CIA head Brennan visited Kiev last weekend. So why this question who’s pulling the strings?

Putin is human. Stuff happens and we die. Medvedev faded so fast we wonder if he was a hologram. Is there any depth to THIS particular Russian foreign policy or would things change radically if he were to suddenly drop away? Things have changed radically three or four times in Russia in just the last thirty years. Would we be in for another 180?

Some people actually think Russians are still communists. My old Aunt is one who didn’t quite realize the old regime in Russia collapsed with perestroika. And she watches CNN regularly.

She was surprised to learn this argument over Ukraine is between rival capitalist powers.

It may be the wave of the future as our government becomes totally controlled by multinationals who can’t raise armies without the police and war making powers of states.

The invasion of Iraq was obviously a case of war for multinational control or a formerly nationalized oil industry. Libya was another. But neither SH nor Qaddafi had nukes. Ukraine and Russia both do.
This situation presents special challenges for big oil, to be sure.

I’m sure Ukraine and Russia are expendable in the eyes of big oil.
