Czech Defence Big Sez NATO Never Really Considered Sending Arms to Kiev Junta

00 destroyed junta tank in Uglegorsk. DNR Novorossiya. 23.02.15

______________________________

On Sunday, Czech Defence Minister Martin Stropnický said in an interview on Prima TV, “At meetings of NATO member-states’ defence ministers, issues related to arms supplies to the Ukraine were never seriously considered”. Earlier on Sunday, NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe US General Philip Breedlove said that the West should consider all possible tools to respond to the Ukrainian crisis, but sending arms to Kiev might destabilise the situation further. Breedlove added that the West should be quick to develop pragmatic approach to settling the Ukrainian crisis because inaction could also destabilise the situation. Last week, junta strongman P A Poroshenko claimed that Kiev signed contracts with eleven EU countries on supplying weaponry, including lethal arms. Last week, German Economic News reported that EU isn’t of one mind on whether to send weapons to the Ukraine. According to the newspaper, at least eight EU nations are strongly opposed to providing arms to the Ukraine… Spain, Germany, Greece, Cyprus, Hungary, Italy, France, and Slovakia. Last month, Germany and France ruled out giving the Kiev junta weapons, fearing further escalation of the conflict in Novorossiya.

Is NATO long for this world? Do remember that Merkel speaks fluent Russian and VVP speaks fluent German. They’re two of the few world leaders that can talk to one another without translators… that’s no small beer. I believe that VVP is trying to undermine and collapse NATO… he may do it. Do note the silence of Stratfor on this… it’d upset their rightwing subscribers, poor babies. They’re a commercial profit-making outfit pushing a product, not a real intelligence agency; never forget that… it distorts their results.

Victoria Nuland Talks Nonsense and Plans for War

00 Politics. He Listened to the Tea Party. 02.01.13

______________________________

Whilst Nuland described the Crimea and Novorossiya as being in the grip of a “Reign of Terror”, over 90 percent Crimeans support reunification with Russia. The fact Nuland is ready to disregard reality when discussing the Ukraine is dangerous and not funny. To enter the mind of Victoria Nuland, US Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs, is to enter a parallel universe. In comments to the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Nuland used the “Reign of Terror” remark. In the Crimea, “Crimean Tatars, Ukrainians who refused to surrender their passports, gays and lesbians, journalists and others” experience violation of their human rights as “the norm, not the exception”. In Novorossiya, “Russia and its separatist puppets (sic) unleashed unspeakable violence and pillage”. The blame for all this horror rests squarely with Moscow, which “manufactured a conflict fuelled by Russian tanks and heavy weapons; financed by Russian taxpayers” to which the Kremlin has sent “hundreds and hundreds of young Russians to fight and die”. Meanwhile, as the Crimea and Novorossiya groan under “illegal occupation” and “terror”, “the Ukraine is building a peaceful, democratic, independent nation across 93 percent of its territory”. Anyone who believes this fantasy must however explain certain facts. It turns out that far from feeling oppressed by “illegal occupation” and “terror”, over 90 percent of Crimeans supported reunification with Russia. This contrasts with reports of growing discontent in “the peaceful, democratic, independent Ukraine”. Meanwhile, the German government and intelligence service can find no trace of any vast Russian army in Novorossiya or on the Ukrainian border that Nuland talks about. Whilst Nuland sees things that aren’t there, she can’t see things that are.

She didn’t notice that President Yanukovich’s removal from office was unconstitutional and violent. She doesn’t see the fascist and neo-Nazi groups and militias that scar Ukrainian political life. The term “Right Sector” doesn’t pass her lips. She’s oblivious to the withdrawal of accreditation to Russian journalists, of the Ukraine banning of Russian and dissident Ukrainian media, and of the deaths of Russian journalists. She doesn’t observe how despite repeated promises the Kiev junta refuses to negotiate a constitutional settlement with the Novorossiyan people. She doesn’t seem to be aware of the junta aggression against Novorossiya, launched in July as the junta’s foreign minister signed a call for an unconditional ceasefire in Berlin. As for the shelling of Novorossiyan cities, the bombing of Donetsk and Lugansk, the fire and murder of protesters in the Odessa Dom Profsoyuzov, the economic blockade imposed by the junta on Novorossiya, the assaults on dissident politicians, and the humanitarian crisis caused by junta actions, if one takes one’s news from Nuland one would know nothing of them. It isn’t that Nuland doesn’t know these things or that she really believes the fantasies she peddles. Rather, she is, as Der Spiegel reported that the German government believes, one amongst several ideological hardliners in NATO and the USA unhappy with the Minsk peace process, who look for ways to wreck it so that the aggression against Novorossiya could restart with the junta rearmed with American weapons. In order to achieve this objective, Nuland and her co-conspirator NATO General Breedlove are ready to say whatever they consider necessary, regardless of truth. Der Spiegel said that this attitude has officials in the German Chancellery “shaking their heads” in dismay. The fact that Nuland is ready to wander so far from reality when discussing the Ukraine is dangerous and not funny. It doesn’t merely risk the West’s credibility, as the German government supposedly thinks. Rather, it’s a sign of how far Western hardliners like Nuland are ready to go to get the anti-Russian war in Europe that they want.

Many Anglo Americans (especially, in the Affluent Effluent) live in a fantasy world, but Republicans are doubly so inclined. Anyone who takes ANY credence in Fox News, Rush Limboob, or Sarah Palin is dangerously lunatic. If the Fairness Doctrine were still in place, these truth-stretchers wouldn’t be on the air. Yes, Virginia, at one time, the USA disallowed rightwing slime from spouting their shit over the airwaves. It’s time to bring that back, along with the socialistic New Deal, in all its fullness (starting with abolishing Taft-Hartley and reimposing a full and uncastrated Wagner Act). Until we do so, we live in a brutal and violent Corporatist state closer to Nazi Germany than to the New Deal USA that helped to defeat it (there’s little difference between Wal-Mart’s present business practises and those of the slave-labour-utilising IG Farben in the Third Reich). Think on that.

Americans Wet Their Pants! Russian Aircraft Used NATO Ships as Simulated Targets

00 Russian Air Force fighters. 04.05.14

_______________________________

According to TVN24.pl, citing Sputniknews.com, Russians air units used NATO ships in the Black Sea as simulated targets in their exercises. On 3 March, Su-30 and Su-24 bombers based in the Crimea made a simulated attack on the American cruiser USS Vicksburg and the Turkish frigate Turgut Reis. The purpose of the exercise was to test tactics used to “overcome air defence” of cruisers and frigates, which meant that they tested antishipping tactics. Finally, the Russian aircraft buzzed the NATO ships. Exercises of this scale against “enemy” units are very rare. In the past, most were instances of individual aircraft doing such, such as in April 2014, when an Su-24 flew very close to an American destroyer in the Black Sea. The commander of the USS Donald Cook said that it was a “provocative” act.

It looked like the Americans peed their pants in fright twice. They like handing it out, but like all bullies, they don’t like taking it. Let’s not be coy… the American naval superiority means NOTHING in the Black Sea. With that out, the intheatre American forces are inferior to the intheatre Russian forces. Therefore, any noise from the USA is nothing but the gumming of a toothless and bootless Rubber Lion. Russia holds the trumps… and Vova has the black belt, doesn’t he?

Ukie Nationalist Nutter Calls for NATO Airstrikes in Novorossiya

00 The Night of the Lving Dead. Kiev. 10.05.14

______________________________

On Tuesday, Poroshenko Bloc MP Vadim Denisenko appeared on Roman Chaika’s Channel 5 program Ukraina Ponad Use (The Ukraine Above All). Chaika posed the question, “What’s preventing NATO from carrying out airstrikes?” given the alliance’s policy of military interventionism. Denisenko responded by noting, “NATO is very slow in acting. Six months ago nobody even spoke about providing weapons. Now, in the near future, as I understand it, they’ll send weapons to the Ukraine; everything is being set up for their delivery. Then, after that, the next step would obviously be airstrikes. However, this would take an additional three to four months. Unfortunately, they’re very slow in their decision-making”. Chaika voiced his consternation over the perceived slowness of NATO intervention, noting, “When it comes to ISIL, Syria, etc., they make decisions quickly”. Denisenko further noted, in his view, “There’s no possibility for a political compromise on the matter of solving the conflict in [Novorossiya], in light of the circumstances, all that’s left to do is to formally declare war. The Ukraine will need as many arms and instructors as possible from NATO. This is the main thing we must achieve today. The IMF gave the Ukraine their word that they’d provide financial assistance during military hostilities to the Ukraine. However, we must also create an economic blockade of the occupied territories. Responsibility for the provision of the civilian population [for their basic needs] lies on the shoulders of the state-occupier. We must say honestly, ‘We won’t pay pensioners from the DNR and LNR; we won’t pay for their electricity’. If the political will exists, we could solve this in a month’s time”.

On Tuesday, President V V Putin noted that the West is already supplying Kiev with weaponry. He told the press after talks with Magyar Minister-President Viktor Orbán, “According to our information, they’re already delivering arms”. Putin added that while the weapons’ provision would result in more military and civilian casualties, they wouldn’t change the balance of forces, saying, “The result will remain the same as it is today. This is inevitable, since most of the Ukrainian forces’ personnel, in my opinion, have no desire to take part in a fratricidal war, far away from their own homes, whilst the [VSN] have the great motivation of protecting their families”.

If you needed proof of the crackbrained folly of the Uniate/schismatical junta… here it is. They fully expect the West to go to war for them. They’re nuts… which makes them dangerous. When they go down to defeat, I wouldn’t put it past these crazies to blow up a Dnepr dam or a Chernobyl containment vessel. I’ve seen nastiness on the part of “Ukrainian Catholics” and “Ukrainian Orthodox”… yes, they are capable of such. God do help us all…
