Do have a care with anyone who is or was in the Washington defence, intel, or political apparats… have similar care with HillyBillys and members of the corporate and journalistic apparats. I had a colloquy with a “Craig Cartier” (if that’s even their real name)… their espousal of a far-out fictive narrative on the Ukraine and Russia was simply unhinged. Russia moved troops from the Far East to Novorossiya… the DNR and LNR are Russian fronts… Russia invaded the Crimea… the whole nine yards peddled by the Galician Uniate fascists (if true, it’d be a major security breach, but since it’s noxious bullshit, well… “winning is the only thing”). Having studied the history of the region for many years, I can tell you that the Crimea, DNR, and LNR were the strongest supporters of the Party of Regions. Besides that, they were the most-heavily Russian areas of the pre-1991 “Ukraine”. In fact, Novorossiya was never part of the historical “Ukraine”, it (and its cities) was a new foundation of the Russian Empire in the 18th century… it wasn’t added to the Ukrainian SSR until 1924.
However, the Beltway Commandos reiterate their lies even to those who know the truth (and who tell them so pointblank). They’re like zombies… “Russia is to blame… Russia is to blame”. Even the relatively sane repeat the same line (albeit with a bit more sincerity and pathos… you almost believe them until you realise that the facts haven’t changed over the last 24 hours). Please have a care with such people. We don’t live in normal times… we have the TSA Gestapo doing invasive body searches at airports… we have a Department of Homeland Security (rather Orwellian name, wot?)… there are security guards all over denying access to this and to that. Eddie Snowden had to flee to Russia to avoid a kangaroo court… Manning sits in prison for years… for what? The USA imprisons people in the Gitmo Gulag with no fixed sentence (even the Sov GULag had definite sentences)… it’s kept some people there for 15 years!
The times are dicey… please, be careful in your dealings with any government apparatchik or with corporate and journalistic apparatchiks. They’re all goodthinkers, and they’d throw you under the bus in an instant. Have a care, as dark as it is now, it may get even darker…
