US Iraq War Combat Vet sez Mercenaries Pose Threat to Ukrainians as they’re Ultra-Violent

01 Private Mercenary Armies cartoon

______________________________

Although American officials claim there isn’t any “confirmation” of American mercenaries in the Ukraine, American combat vet Michael Prysner thinks that mercs are already involved in the Ukrainian turmoil. Prysner pointed up that private American “security contractors” carry out the USA’s “dirty work” around the world. He warned that American private “military” bands pose a serious threat, as most are “a very rare breed of ultra-violent individuals”. Prysner stated that the Pentagon recognises no legal limits to its actions, not even mentioning its “dirty little secrets” about its corporate hitmen. Numerous American mercenaries illegally operate all over the world, and if the USA wants to meddle in the domestic affairs of another country whilst keeping its own hands “clean”, it sends mercs to do their “work” there. Prysner believed that recruiting private contractors is a result of a shift in American military strategy in the last decades. The Iraq War vet has no doubts that, now, squads of American mercenaries are taking part in operations in the Ukraine.

One should note that a source cited by ITAR-TASS earlier reported that the Kiev junta decided to use foreign mercenaries, allegedly Greystone Ltd (a subsidiary of Blackwater) to suppress patriot movements in the Southeastern Ukraine. Answering the question why the junta needed to deploy American mercenaries, Prysner emphasised that the new semi-fascist junta is extremely unpopular in most of the Ukraine, and to avoid losing power over the state apparat, the self-proclaimed putschist leadership is willing to sell off the entire country to the West, saying, “The USA and the EU very much want to secure the results of their operation to bring the Ukraine into their sphere of influence. Of course, neocons like John Kerry and John McCain already push to arm the largely rightwing elements that took power. Of course, we know that they even favour direct military intervention”.

However, as direct military intervention is impossible, the US administration is using private military contractors to invade the country. Thus, they try to shield themselves from responsibility for their client’s actions, attempting to give themselves “deniability”. Prysner estimated that there are about 150 foreign mercs operating in the Ukraine and they pose a significant threat to the civil population, saying, “They were soldiers who came out of special ops forces in the American and other militaries, highly trained in ambushes, in sabotage, and in psy-ops. We know that those who choose to become mercenaries are a very rare breed of ultra-violent individuals”. Military contractors seriously discredited themselves during the war in Iraq, shooting innocent people, and turning the population against them. Prysner noted that the Nisour Square massacre was a vivid example of only one of the mercs’ numerous atrocities, adding, “Myself, when I was in Iraq in 2003-04, regular army soldiers hated the mercenaries there, because they were so reckless”.

Mercs are blowhards. If they faced REAL élite soldiers like the Russian Naval Infantry (they’re not known as the “Black Death” for nought), they’d either run or be smashed. In a standup fight, regular infantry would wax their asses to the max, as mercs only operate in small units that are only useful for scouting, hit-and-run raids, attacks on unarmed civilians, ambushes, or guarding static assets (they lack the heavy arms of the regular infantry, and a larger unit has survivability lacking in a small group… kill 25 soldiers in a battalion, it carries on… kill 25 mercs, you either wipe them out or decimate the unit). In short, the USA couldn’t pluck the junta out of the La Brea Tar Pit that it’s in. All that the USA can do is to prolong its tenure… and kill uncounted thousands.

For this, the neocons deserve to swing at the end of a rope… but they won’t. However, you DON’T have to vote for them this November…

Recently, some loudmouthed scumbags on Radio Liberty insinuated that HH was against President Putin and was against the Crimea rejoining the Rodina. Well, a week after the all-Crimea referendum, HH put the lie to such arrant bullshit. He had a group of MVD soldiers as his honoured guests, especially, some men wounded in battle (was it against Ukie fanatic nationalists? One wonders). This goes to show ya that Radio Liberty has the same relation to truth as a used car salesman. In short… NEVER trust ANYTHING broadcast on that US government propaganda outlet… it’s all neocon/Langley horse hockey.

As for HH… he’s still a patriot, and he still opposes the US grasp at world hegemony. He supports Russia and its armed forces, as these images prove. You can believe your eyes or you can believe Radio Liberty… its up to you.

VMF Shitcans Rickety Ukrainian Submarine “Zaporozhe”

00 Ukrainian submarine Zaporozhe. 29.03.14

______________________________

The VMF High Command stated that ex-Ukrainian submarine Zaporozhe is in very poor shape; the Black Sea Fleet (ChF-VMF) refused to take it on strength. The High Command noted that the submarine is 44 years old, it’s outdated, it lacks contemporary combat capabilities, besides which, it hasn’t gone to sea for years. The Minoborony Ukrainy tried to maintain the vessel, but they didn’t do a good job of it. Previously, the sub was part of the Ukrainian Navy, but on 22 March 2014, after the all-Crimea referendum, the ship raised the St Andrew banner. Today, the VMF intends to give the old tub back to the Minoborony Ukrainy. A VMF source told us, “We’ll give it back to the Minoborony Ukrainy; they can use it or get rid of it at their discretion”. Similar boats of Project 641, workhorses of the VMF in Sov times, are long gone from Russian submarine forces; some of them live on as museum ships.The crew of the submarine will go on to serve in the ChF-VMF. Very soon, six new state-of-the art subs building in St Petersburg yards are due to join the ChF-VMF in Sevastopol {some reports say that the Zaporozhe crew will take over a new sub due to arrive in the Crimea soon: editor}.

For 23 years, the “Ukrainian” state hasn’t done shit for the economy, social infrastructure, or the military. Why? The oligarchs and political shitbirds such as Yuliya Timoshenko raped the country and sucked it dry. Crapitalism ran rampant… some of the biggest offenders being loudmouthed diaspora Ukrainians, who came in to help the oligarchs suck up the rich bounty that the Sovs left in the Ukraine. The native and diaspora thieves did such a good job that the Ukraine, once the jewel in the crown of the USSR, is an economic basket-case dependent on foreign handouts. The soil is rich… the earth has many minerals… the population is well-trained and capable… the industry was first-rate. What happened? The Ukraine is an object lesson in crapitalism. This is what happens when “libertarians” get their way and regulation goes by the wayside.

Under the Sovs, shipyards in the Ukrainian SSR built many of the largest ships in the VMF and in the Soviet merchant fleet. They went to rack and ruin under “Ukrainian” rule. The Ukraine built no major warships since independence (the few completed after 1991 were on the stocks prior to the August Events). The independent Ukraine lived DOWN to all the negative stereotypes about “Ukrainians”… which is sad, as most Ukrainians are level-headed, sane, industrious, and pragmatic people. In realistic terms, these people need proper government… that means that they should return to Great Russia. I confide that many do wish that… many pray for that. Let their suffering end… relegate the independent “Ukraine” to the dustbin of history. These people deserve MUCH better than what they received.

Always, reflect on the fact that the USA supported and supported the thieves, not the ordinary scrabbling people. Some great respect for “the rule of law”, wot?

Pay Levels of Ukrainian Soldiers Who Rallied to Russia Increased 400 Percent

______________________________

At a ceremony in the Kremlin, President Putin praised the Crimean military and security officers who rallied to Russia, saying that Russia should do its utmost to use them to the best of their abilities. He emphasised that their pay and benefits would be in line with their Russian confrères in the very near future. According to our NTV correspondent, Putin mostly acted in his role as commander-in-chief at the Kremlin ceremony. He congratulated security service officers on their new appointments and titles, then, he wished them further success in the security and defence of the country. Putin said, “The recent developments in the Crimea were a serious test. They demonstrated the qualitatively higher readiness of our armed forces, and the high morale of their personnel. I thank the command of the Black Sea Fleet and other units stationed in the Crimea for their endurance and bravery, for their flawlessly professional actions that avoided provocations and prevented bloodshed, ensuring peaceful conditions for a free conduct of the referendum”.

The military infrastructure of the Crimea is in need of large-scale modernisation. Soon, officials of the MVD, Penitentiary Service, FSB, SK RF, and the Office for Drug Control will be working in the region, as there are no longer any obstacles for them. Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu reported that all military facilities in the Crimea have come under Russian jurisdiction, saying, “Comrade Supreme Commander, according to your request, the withdrawal of Ukrainian servicemen who expressed a desire to continue to serve in the Ukrainian forces is complete. We’ve changed state symbols on all ships and units that rallied to Russia. We won’t tolerate acts of desecration and disrespect to Ukrainian state symbols. I ask your permission to begin transferring to the Ukraine weapons and military equipment now under our control in units that didn’t rally to Russia“. Putin replied, “You mean ships and aircraft?” Shoigu said, “Exactly”. Putin said, “I agree. Make it so”.

Those troops in the Crimea who rallied to Russia would serve in newly created units. Their professional skills wouldn’t be lost, but rather serve to benefit the Crimea. All those rallying to Russia would keep their present military ranks and seniority. The RF armed forces would recognise their higher military training, and would raise their pay to Russian levels, about 400 percent higher than the Ukrainian pay rates. Putin said, “In the coming days, the Russian government will decide on all issues with payments related to paying pensions, benefits, and military wages. At the same time, we respect the choice of Ukrainian military and security personnel who chose to return to the Ukraine. We should maintain a very correct attitude to their families, as required by traditional military honour”. Talking about the future of the Crimea, President Putin pointed up its place in military history. He instructed the relevant officials to revive the Black Sea Nakhimov Naval School and create a Cadet Corps in Sevastopol as soon as possible.

Of the 18,000 Ukrainian armed forces personnel in the Crimea, 15,000 (85 percent) rallied to Russia. Note well that The Nation, Sophia Kishkovsky, The National Catholic Reporter, and Christiane Amanpour are silent on that. I wonder why? I’d say that it’s because it isn’t a good omen for the junta’s future. Ordinary folk usually choose sides for hardheaded pragmatic reasons… to put it plainly, real people see that the junta’s not long for this world and they’re acting accordingly. “Independence” and “nationalism” don’t put bread on the table…
