Brilliant post. Maybe the new york's Zboy100 f.m. orchestrated ban might have done some good. #SorryThePrimeBaitCuzIlikedMajorityOfYourPostsgsjackson wrote:Agreed. It's interesting to watch the demonization in the US of Russia and Putin, a politician whose every utterance has sounded perfectly reasonable to me. With Arab terrorists keeping a low profile, Chavez gone and Fidel fading from the scene, guess there was a need for a new bogeyman to keep those military-industrial complex dollars flowing.Tsar wrote:The US and EU are targeting Russian allies. Assad in Syria and Yanukovych in Ukraine were allies with Russia. It's about destabilizing the two countries and causing problems for Russia. Russia is a good country, with strong opportunities for growth, and growing religion. It is against feminism, homosexuality, and is with China in abandoning the US dollar. I am rooting for Assad and Yanukovych because they are pro-Russian and anti-West. Anywhere the US or the EU goes is soon decaying and collapsing. Anywhere the IMF goes becomes more in ruins and the local population suffers.
I've agreed with Putin on virtually every issue where he's butted heads with Obama and other fathead American pols, among them Georgia, Syria, Snowden, the nature of American exceptionalism, an American missile defense shield on Russia's border, Ukraine and gay propaganda. As to the latter, whatever you views may be on whether homosexuality should be normalized, it really can't be disputed that this has happened in the US as the result of an organized and orchestrated, top-down propaganda campaign that was conceived a couple decades ago and sunk its tentacles deep into every corner of the nation's media/education communication complex. Russia is right to ensure that a social change of that magnitude doesn't happen as a result of elites seizing control of the public discourse, which is so easy to do in the US.

Not sure what they mean by deals with Russia. Ukraine can't exist without Russian gas, and probably not without Russia as the main buyer of Ukrainian exports. That's why Putin may just step back and enjoy the chaos that ensues. He knows the US loves to foment coups, but is hopeless when it comes to nation-building.

gsjackson- That hit it pretty much on the head. I personally think they get wowed by the glamour of the west, but don't always know that it tends to come at the price of sustaining that situation in the first place. It's like a paint that rots the house underneath it. The house being eroded is its own problem, anyway- but the paint will get the chair kicked out from under it as well. A cultural version of diabetes, if you will.
Something I've noticed a lot with the various things that have gone on in the Slavic countries lately (the past 20 years, or so) is that there's a lot of issues regarding sustainability that seem to be largely based on other people's nonsense. This one's corrupt, so it undermines what the people of that country are able to do. That deal fell through, so now something that was dependantly attached to it (only because it was MADE that way) doesn't work. It's attaching an extra conditional to something, which makes it one more thing to fall through & hamstring the situation. Making it fancy & doing a trick.
Reminds me of:
And that box of gold bars....

marklambo- Sounds cool. Would definitely like to hear about it when/if you get back- as I'm thinking of going there at some point, myself. Don't know if you know this, but sometimes speaking Russian doesn't go over too well. It depends on the area, from what I've heard. Might be a good idea to be able to speak Ukrainian AND Russian, if you don't already.
It seems there's a real East/West thing going on over there at the moment. I've heard that it's not actully Pro-EU vs Pro-Russia, but instead skinheads & ultra-nationalists trying to take power. I don't understand why Ukraine would get into problems with the EU if they do things with Russia. It seems like Russia was saying "You can still trade either way, even if you do business mainly with us" and the American/EU side was saying "You can only be with us & we'll start telling you how to do things." Also it seems Russia gave them a whole lot of hook-up money that had no conditionals attached. They were having problems & Russia boosted things without it being an "only if you go with us" type of thing. It seems like maybe Russia was the better bet, especially since America & the EU (to an extent) seem to be steering more & more toward a state of corporate communism. The whole point of communism was controlling people & controlling resources (and controllling those resources would be a method of controlling those people, since they need resources to do things- even if they're not materialistic). Sound familar?
This just in.

Ukraine Pleads For Britain And US To Rescue It

U.S. and Russia are two of the world's largest natural gas produces. Russia transports its gas to the EU from the pipeline that goes through Ukraine. The US would have the most to gain from isolating Russia and preventing Russian natural gas from flowing into Europe (have the puppet government of the West stop the flow of natural gas). Then America can charge more for it's natural gas production and earn more revenue at the expense of Russia.
Ukraine is culturally and historically closer to Russia, especially with Crimea. The Russian Black Sea naval port is strategic for Russia. NATO wants to be at Russia's doorstep. America doesn't want Russia to be powerful again and it's because Russia won't be controlled or exploited by Russia. Russia has diamonds, oil, timber, resources, is abandoning trade in the US dollar, and is rapidly developing. The US and EU wanted to install a puppet government in Ukraine and remove one of Russia's important strategic partners. Russia should never bow to the US or EU. Russia should ignore all the West's warnings. Russia is too powerful to be impacted by the US and the EU. The US and Europe are running out of resources and are on the brink of total collapse. Russia, China, and South America are rapidly rising and will be the great world powers. The US business lobbyists and corporations need China. South America generally appeases America (ex. War on Drugs) and America needs South American food imports (and South America exports many fruits, coffee, and agricultural products to America). Russia doesn't trade much with America and in reality Russia doesn't need America, it would survive without America or Western Europe. This is why the West are trying to subvert Russia, isolate it, remove all Russia's allies (Ukraine, Syria, Iran. It already has bases in the Central Asian Former Soviet Republics). If Ukraine is conquered by the West's NATO-funded coup then Russia will only have Belarus, and that will be the next target of Western Imperialists from the US and the EU. Russia must take a stand now and assert it's power that it will not be controlled in its sphere of influence. It's not a powerless country like Libya or Syria. It isn't like Iran that could be isolated from the World's financial system or attacked by NATO. Russia will return to greatness.
What ultimately started WWI was when Nicholas II of Russia vowed to protect the Slavic people of Serbia against an Austrian-Hungarian invasion because a Serbian assassinated Archduke Franz-Ferdinand. Most likely it was a agent that wanted to create the World War. So once again the Western elites are trying to create a war to undermine Russia as it is rising to greatness. Russia is protecting their fellow Slavs from the West.
Obama and all the modern Presidents of America have no right to take about respecting other nations sovereignty. America has invaded more countries than all other countries in the world. Some examples include Panama, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya.
One of the greatest examples during the last century was when America annexed many independent countries in the early 20th Century. Even Hawaii was annexed so it could produce pineapples and sugar cane for America. The American farmers and the American navy wanted Hawaii. They annexed Hawaii in the early 1900s for American interests.
The American corporations would go into Ukraine and pillage it of it's resources. It would become absorbed into the EU's exploitative economy. It would have to make concessions which include charging higher prices to the Ukrainian people, increasing their poverty. The debt burden would be shifted onto the people. The IMF and EU would demand more and more concessions for bailouts. Russia's $15B in aid was said to have no strings attached except to remain in their sphere of influence, repayment, and the future Eurasian Union that would reduce both the US and EU's economic role in the world and control of trade.
American corporations want more markets. The Western elites want to pilfer the world.
