Gazprom has a lot of gas lines going throw the ukraine. Hope none of the "accidently& ;amp;quo t; blows up.


Yo u're not from EU are you?
If gas pipes in Ukraine start to blow up "accidentally&q uot; gas prices will go up.

That means they will ask BP or Exxon to actually do it, as Russians are not quite there yet to construct bathrooms that would have real toilet bowls.


Pe rhaps we can use your brainless head as toiletbowl. Be happy for this, finally you are usefull.

Looks like Crimea hit the jackpot.

Standard oil of New York (sony) or in this case chevron is behind it all. Through their paid stooges. The swej are so predictable. Did they really think they had a chance here? Fkn psychopaths. Venezuela is next.

Of course this is what it was about all along - if Ukraine could harness Crimean oil and natural gas, it could stop being so dependent on Russia (specifically Gazprom) for fuel!

So this was all about oil and gas all along!

I thought Exxon was also interested. However they could not start drilling because they could not agree with the previous government about royalties. Maybe they could form a consortium with Gazprom. Whatever happens, Crimea should not give the gas and oil away. The charts look like it is a valuable resource.

And there you go, Shell and Chevron lose Gazprom wins. The globalists got greedy with Syria and Ukraine and they made a mess of it. Ukraine will still depend on Russia for its gas and pay a premium, the pipeline flows gas to Europe not the other way around. A stupid political move to get involved in the first place. So now we have a global banker in charge of Ukraine who will accept western loans and impoverish the Ukrainian people which will drive them into Russia's waiting arms. Smart move by Putin.

Crimea is totally different to the breakup of the former Yugoslavia because of some nice mineral wealth.

You are not informed. Kosovo - part of Serbia, has the most diverse mineral wealth, comparable only to Ural and some Chinese mines. Satellites scans and spy work made it a target.
And guess what!? today the major shareholders of those mines are: Wesley Clark, general who bombed Serbia. Madeleine Albright, Tony Blair, and Clintons.
What a reward, what moral principles, what do you say?


Roland 18.03.2014 15:58

Well there you go then. Crimeia is totally different to the breakup of the former Yugoslavia because of some nice mineral wealths. In the west the BBC are reporting that the Russians invaded the Crimea and the people are currently being oppressed by a corrupt regime.

I wish all the people in the Crimea the best. 97% of the vote sounds like a pretty popular backing.
