The Nazi illegal regime in the W. Ukraine wants to play hard ball. OK, in addition to cutting the gas, Russia could also ask Russians and pro-Russians in East Ukraine to come back to their home land. This will leave the Ukraine with about 25 millions, which would make it impossible for the country to function.

T he Russian Fleet will remain the guarantee of peace in the Black Sea. The Nazi Americans wanted a replacement, but their wicked plan has been foiled.

China took a Typically Wise and Inscrutable Position by Abstaining from the Crimea Vote in the UN - but then the Chinese have their own Tibetan Problem (just as the US has the Native Americans and the UK has Scotland and Northern Ireland)

(a t least for today)

Well.. Technically Kalinigrad Oblast has historically been closer to Germany than it has to Russia. Maybe we should dispatch some "local" "self-defense&q uot; forces and hold a "Referendum&quo t; on its future.

Thi s is not correct. The 1979 Protocol to the Geneva Conventions makes an exemption on the insginia requriement. Lawful combatants, in order to retain their status as lawful, need only to carry their weapons openly and obey the rules of warfare (i.e. don't kill civilians). The "Russians" complied with this requirement.

  


Fa lse.

On the Hawaiian Islands, a group of American sugar planters under Sanford Ballard Dole overthrow Queen Liliuokalani, the Hawaiian monarch, and establish a new provincial government with Dole as president. The coup occurred with the foreknowledge of John L. Stevens, the U.S. minister to Hawaii, and 300 U.S. Marines from the U.S. cruiser Boston were called to Hawaii, allegedly to protect American lives.

No one in the western media makes clear who Andriy Porubyj is (even RT in this article). He represents the Fatherland Party, which is an re-invention of the Socialist National Party. Quite simply he is one of a number of ultra-nationalists and fascist in the government - one who exercises some power and influence.

The west clearly does not want people to know who is in the 'legitimate government' of the Ukraine and keeps on parroting uncritically their statements as if this was a moderate, elected government.

And by American standards Obama is a communist.

Suc h as? Did they remove the flags from their uniforms? Did they hide the license plates on their vehicles? Did they cover the identification marks on the artillery pieces?

  


Actually USA did more than what you quoted... They employed Blackwater/Academi to fight their war in Iraq. They empowered terrorist around the world to fight in Syria.... In fact USA arm forces were hiding behinde these contract killers....
