If I saw this coming, and I am assuming the RT guests did too, then surely those that engineered this coup knew this was the likely outcome.

Putin really had no option but to make a move on Crimea and the USA if in the same position would have done the same thing. Putin was not going just sit back andsqueezed out of the Black Sea, particularly with such a large loyal Russian population in Crimea and E Ukraine. The coup was almosy a godsend to Putin.

So, the question really is; then what are the Globalists really up to? They can't be that stupid!
BTW...Go od work Mark Hackard! I'll look for your blog.

I'm no expert though I have lived in Russia, but it seems to me that the RT guests are only wrong about one thing.
Look, I don't think that the Western powers that backed the IMF coup in Ukraine were taken by surprize by Putin's move and Crimea breaking away.

It' s totally different in German media, where usually at least one guest has a different opinion.
[/quote ]Not really. In western media, the divergence of opinions concerning the Ukraine issue is generally only about should there be more or less sanctions against Russia - That's about the scope of those "different opinions".
I never saw expressed the idea that the whole situation was caused by the West and its geostrategic plans and projections, for example.
