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…

“Grexit” Could Cause EU Collapse

Barbara-Marie Drezhlo. Euroised Greece. 2012

______________________________

American economist Barry Eichengreen warned that the consequences of a Greek exit from the Eurozone could be devastating, and that the governments of the monetary union are taking the possible repercussions too lightly. In an interview with Die Welt am Sonntag, Eichengreen, UC Berkeley Professor of Economics, said that the consequences “would spread to other countries. When a Portuguese family or Spanish businessperson sees that Euros have been converted into drachmas, they’ll take their money out of their accounts. That could lead to a run on the banks”. Eichengreen continued that this scenario would snowball, “investors would speculate on the next candidate to leave the Eurozone”, thus endangering the entire Euro project. He also thinks that financial markets are also guilty of miscalculation, with share prices giving an overly positive picture. “My experience as an economic historian has taught me that markets always look relaxed, until suddenly… they aren’t. From the banking crisis of 2008 to the emerging markets crises of the 1990s, anybody can take their favourite financial crisis and discover that markets are really not a good crisis indicator. In the run-up to the crash, the players were always too relaxed for too long, and then later fell into a complete panic”. Eichengreen believed that the new Greek government should be given more time, “They should be given some breathing space, which is also in the interests of their creditors. I’d be in favour of tying interest payments on the borrowing to economic growth. Only when the Greek economy grows, should the country pay interest, otherwise the payments will simply be deferred. The Euro is of great symbolic and geostrategic worth for Europe”. He added that such an eventuality on the economic front would also have consequences for the West in terms of the European geostrategic situation. He observed, “The West hardly wants Russia to be able to position itself as a saviour, and become involved”, adding that this would have “dramatic consequences” for NATO.

Hollande sez France doesn’t Want the Ukraine in NATO nor Wants to Send Them Arms

FRANCE-GERMANY-NATO-SUMMIT-DEFENCE

______________________________

French President François Hollande told a press conference in Paris that France finds Ukrainian NATO membership “undesirable” and that Paris doesn’t plan to supply arms to the Ukraine, saying, “We must state it clearly, we should tell other countries the truth, including about what we aren’t ready to accept. This is France’s position”. He noted that Paris is ready to do everything possible to prevent war in the Ukraine by diplomatic means, “France doesn’t fight in the Ukraine and doesn’t want to see war in the Ukraine; we want to prevent war. We must do everything possible in order for diplomacy and politics to gain the upper hand”. Earlier, Hollande said that he’d travel to Kiev with German Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel on Thursday to seek a solution to the intensifying conflict in Novorossiya. On Friday, Hollande and Merkel will hold talks with President V V Putin. Presidential Press Secretary D S Peskov confirmed the meeting, “Indeed, I can confirm that we plan talks tomorrow (6 February) between Putin, Merkel, and Hollande. Leaders of the three countries will discuss what they can do to help end the civil war in [Novorossiya] that has considerably intensified over the last few days and resulted in many casualties”.

Mixed signals out of the West… bellicosity from the USA… France pulls back… Germany tries to (unsuccessfully) steer a middle course between the two. This is why the West will fail in the Ukraine. It’s internally-divided. Do note that countries with relatively larger Galician diaspora populations are more hardline than those without such a pressure group. The Galician Uniates and “Ukrainian Orthodox” are sellouts and suck-ups to Langley (as the ROCOR/OCA duopoly once was… some elements in it still are)… that’s why the US Republican Party will use it as a political football to gain their approval (these groups have concentrations in Ohio and Pennsylvania, two states that always seem in contention in US presidential elections).

Something that the West Overlooks in a “Grexit”

Sergei Kirillov. The Baptism of Grand Princess St Olga. Part 1 of the Triptych 'Holy Rus'. 1993

The Baptism of Grand Princess St Olga

Part 1 of the Triptych Holy Rus

Sergei Kirillov

1993

This was the baptism of Equal-to-the-Apostles Grand Princess St Olga… the grandmother of Equal-to-the-Apostles Grand Prince St Vladimir, the Enlightener of all the Russias. It happened at Hagia Sofia (Church of the Holy Wisdom of the Incarnate Word of God) in Constantinopolis, in the 10th century AD (some say 955, others say 957). Russians haven’t forgotten that… neither have Greeks. Russians and Greeks go WAY back. By the way… one of the things in contention in the present Ukrainian Civil War/War of Liberation of Novorossiya is the “ownership” of the legacy of St Vladimir. Is he “Uniate” or is he “Orthodox?” That’s why no Orthodox Christian can support the US Republican Party… they support those who advance the Uniate argument in that case. Just sayin’…

This is an excerpt from a longer, rather boring, piece by a humdrum Affluent Effluent self-important “wealth advisor”. However, this part not only rings true, it’s rather good. If you really want to read the rest of his neoliberal crapola, click the link at the end. This part, though, is a real read n’ heed.

I retained the original author’s emphasis.

I wish to remind my readers of one unseen risk in all this, one that literally no one else has talked about. Southern Europe and much of the Balkans, whilst nominally “Western” in lip service, is really a long-lost religious remnant of the Eastern world.  The mediaeval Orthodox world was born from the Orthodox Byzantine Empire (sic), which stretched from Asia Minor, all the way through the Balkans, and westward as far as Serbia! The Greeks, who always had a great deal in common with Russia, are of the same Orthodox religious cloth as the Russians are. Both Russia and Greece represent ancient civilisations, formed by Constantinople. Serbia, Bulgaria, Greece, Macedonia, and even parts of Bosnia all have the same religious lineage… they’ve all felt for centuries that they were “fish out of water” within Catholic Europe.  Excepting Romania, there’s almost a direct ecumenical “land bridge” connecting Russia to the Balkans (remember, the Ukraine is very much Orthodox).  

“Watchman, I think you’re making too big a deal out of this religious angle!”

Maybe, but ask yourself… what would a Grexit mean for Russia and the Orthodox world?

A Grexit would serve to re-establish an autonomous independent Orthodox foothold on the European continent (which Russia would quickly make a key partner). Therefore, a Grexit would effectively create a symbiotic relationship between Greece and Russia, creating an economic and cultural “magnetic pull” upon the rest of Orthodox Southern Europe, drawing them to parts further East (further into Russia’s sphere of influence). A Grexit would be a dream come true for Moscow, as it’d take the by-gone dream of a geographically unified all-Orthodox world (as well as the entire Eurasian trade zone) one huge step closer to reality.

Trust me, if Greece leaves the EU, they’d find a most hearty reception in Eurasia, as it’d be a religious homecoming! Moreover, what of Orthodox Bulgaria?  Do you think that the Bulgarians are maybe feeling more than a tad bit slighted, after Brussels and DC forced them to give up South Stream to the Turks (their historic enemies)?  There’s so much going on here that 99 percent of commentators are totally missing. Look, I understand that some of you aren’t religious, but when we’re talking about geopolitics and the make-up of civilisation itself, don’t underestimate the important reality of religious considerations that come into play here. Besides… Merkel doesn’t want Greece (and its newly discovered hydrocarbon reserves) to slip through her fingers. With Russia acquiring a huge, new energy boon in its reunification with the Crimea, The EU’s list of friends with untapped extensive hydrocarbon reserves is growing rather thin!

Konstantin Makovsky. Bulgarian Martyrs. 1877

Bulgarian Martyrs

Konstantin Makovsky

1877

Such events as those pictured in the painting did occur in the Ottoman-ruled Balkans. The worst of the Ottoman bullyboys were the Albanians, their cruelty, barbarity, and rapine was well-known, yet, they often showed cowardice in open battle. Not much has changed in that regard, has it? The locals welcomed the Russian troops as liberators from Turkish oppression wherever they went. The ordinary people of the Balkans have never forgotten that the Russians freed them from slavery. Only small minorities of the so-called local élites support the USA and its militant nihilism. Most Balkan people still support Russia and Orthodoxy. NATO had best not count on any of its Balkan members; they’re in for a rude surprise…

In Mediaeval Europe, until its treacherous sack by perfidious Crusaders in 1204, Constantinopolis Nea Romana (Constantinople New Rome) was the brightest light of civilisation on the continent. It was the literal lineal embodiment of the Roman Empire… indeed, that’s what it called itself… “Rhomania”… ROME. It wasn’t Rome’s successor… it WAS Rome… they never tired of reminding the Western barbarians of that fact. It was NEVER the “Byzantine Empire”… that’s a nasty German 16th century neologism that no Orthodox Christian should ever use.

As Constantinopolis was “I Polis” (THE City), so, Moscow is “the Centre” today. Moscow is as much the centre of the Orthodox World (Orthosphere) today as Constantinopolis was the centre of the Orthodox World prior to its final fall in 1453. As Hagia Sophia was the main temple of all Orthodoxy then, the Khram Spasitelya in Moscow is the main temple of all Orthodoxy worldwide today. If you’re Orthodox… you’re a “Muscovite”. Just as being Orthodox at one time meant being “Greek”… today, you’re “Russian”… even if you’re Greek! V V Putin went to the Mountain… to an ecstatic welcome from the Fathers there. V F Yanukovich went to the Mountain regularly on otpust, with the blessing of his late starets Zosima Sokur. The Fathers gave him an equally enthusiastic welcome. Don’t listen to Uniate lies about Viktor Fyodorovich… he was much more honest than the Rabbit is (after all, the Rabbit was Yuliya the Landshark’s bagman; he stole much more than Yanukovich ever did… remember the Kiev “street” gibe, “The Rabbit shits in a solid gold toilet”)… reflect on this, Yanukovich was the MOST honest president that the Ukraine ever had.

Russia’s traditional foreign policy has been to liberate the Orthodox lands of the Balkans and to keep them free of papist interference. No one in the Balkans (INCLUDING Romania) has ever forgotten the Russian liberation of their lands in the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78 and their subsequent betrayal by the Brits and Germans (the very same parties, along with their American cousins, are interfering there today). No one has forgotten the “White Marshal”… Marshal Skobelyov… who led the victorious armies to the gates of Tsargrad (Constantinople).

In short, the war in the Ukraine and the coming Western interference in Greek internal affairs are nothing new for the hubristic West. SYRIZA had best keep its wits about them or its leadership will end up dead like Allende… the Anglos and Germans are nasty-ass terrorists of the worst-possible sort… they make al-Qaeda look infantile in comparison. Look at the Bush torture programme, the Holocaust, the British firestorm air raids of World War II, Lidice’s destruction, the drone murder campaign, the concentration camps of the Boer War, the Easter Bombing of Belgrade, Wounded Knee, and the Gitmo Gulag. I do daresay that the West’s shield isn’t pure (and hasn’t been, from the start)… yet, they caterwaul incessantly about “human rights” and about how “exceptional” they are.

Excuse me… I have to find a corner to be sick in… there’s only so much of that arrant shit that a decent person can take.
