US/NATO/EU Thugs Continue Killing Ukrainians

John Robles

There is a school of thought that has it that the elites in the US foreign policy establishment do not understand, and in fact are completely ignorant of the peoples of the world and in particular in the countries where they have launched regime change, color revolution and other operations. The US backed armed coup d’état in Ukraine has taken this egregious inexcusable ignorance to the next level and makes it doubtful that such a contention is true. 

Ukraine has shown the world that not only is the US completely out of touch with the peoples of the world but in fact has proven to anyone who may have had a doubt that the US not only has no interest in the people being affected and killed by its policies but in fact is completely contemptuous of anyone that is not of use to their waning empire.

Ukraine Continues Killing its Own People

This past week saw some of the worst violence to date near Slavyansk as self-defense units of the Donetsk People's Republic continue to defend themselves and the civilian population against a heightened military operation that has been raging against the populations of eastern Ukraine.

It is very difficult to ascertain the exact number of Ukrainian civilians and self-defense forces that have been killed by the nazi junta but the numbers could easily be in the high hundreds if not already in the thousands. Unlike the Maidan last winter which saw exaggerated death counts and constant reporting by the West and the junta as they attempted to demonize President Yanukovych and accuse him of war ordering the murder of civilians (a complete and total fabrication which saw the junta employing snipers to try to place the blame on the president who had been forced to leave the country), the western media and the "authorities" in Kiev are silent when it comes to the Ukrainian citizens they are systematically attempting to eliminate in eastern Ukraine.

The characterization by the junta and its western backers of the punitive operation against the civilians in the east as an "anti-terrorist operation" continues to ring hollow as the Ukrainian military continues to use heavy artillery and launch indiscriminate bombing runs and air strikes against targets such as daycare centers, schools and hospitals. Among the innocent civilian dead are women and children, whose only crime was to be in the way of the junta's bullets.

Screaming Silence, Media Operations, Anti-Russian War Propaganda

As with the atrocities in Odessa and Mariupol the western media has largely been silent blindly supporting the narrative set out by Washington that no matter what the nazi junta does it is good and those opposed to it are evil and anything can be done to them with impunity. As the body count continues to rise and the crimes committed by the junta increase this silence is more and more having the quality of criminal complicity as the so-called Fourth Estate continues to be a part to covering up and white washing war crimes and it has become obvious in a conscience participant in actively promoting War propaganda against Russia.

The Ministry of Truth and the Orwellian way that the media has managed to demonize Russia and transfer the blame for events in Ukraine that are fully and completely the fault of the US and its "machine" is stunning and unprecedented in its scope and is clearly in preparation for something much worse than merely placing NATO missiles 5 minutes from Moscow.

Clearly, the US is attempting to start a war with Russia by provoking Russia to defend itself and its interests. Demonizing Russia and marginalizing anything and anyone with the label "pro-Russian" for the situation in Ukraine serves the interest of the US/NATO war machine as it prepares to carry out what no sane person would do, namely bring the world to the brink of World War III. It also deflects the criminal liability of the West and its agents for destabilizing and destroying yet another country that never threatened the West in the first place.

US Using nazi Strategy - General Leonid Ivashov

Russian General Ivashov put it very clearly in an interview in February for the site KM.RU(English): "Apparently they (officials of the European Union and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry) have dedicated themselves, and continue to do so, to deeply and thoroughly studying the doctrine of Dr. Goebbels. They present everything backwards from reality. It is one of the formulas which Nazi propaganda employed most successfully: They accuse the party that is defending itself, of aggression. What is happening in Ukraine and Syria is a project of the West, a new type of war: in both places you see a clear anti-Russian approach, and as is well known, wars today begin with psychological and information warfare operations."

More Regions Declare Independence, Right to Self-Determination

If the goal of the US is the destruction of Ukraine as a single viable state then it has succeeded well. With Crimea gone, Donetsk and Lugansk holding referendums and proclaiming themselves "People's Republics" with more than eight other regions set to do so, Ukraine will never again be a unified entity. As Russia stated repeatedly Federalization would have saved Ukraine but the junta has obtusely refused to consider this simple fact and blindly continues going down a road to self-destruction while being led by the NATO/EU carrot.

In 2012 the United Nations once again underlined the importance of Articles 1 and 2 of the UNCharter which relates to the right of self-determination: "Article 1 (2) establishes that one of the main purposes of the United Nations, and thus the Security Council, is to develop friendly international relations based on respect for the "principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples". The case studies in this section cover instances where the Security Council has discussed situations with a bearing on the principle of self-determination and the right of peoples to decide their own government, which may relate to the questions of independence, autonomy, referenda, elections, and the legitimacy of governments."

Under the 67th General Assembly of the United Nations the Third Committee determined the following: "Universal recognition of the inalienable right to self-determination was the most effective way the global community could guarantee protection of fundamental freedoms…"

"Whether this right is taken away by military intervention, aggression, occupation, or even exploitation, the world cannot condone its deprivation from any peoples in any region."

"All States facing questions of self-determination must include broader ethnic and linguistic groups in decision-making processes…"

NATO Head Rasmussen Ignores Self-Determination

This respect for the fundamental right to self-determination is in striking contrast to the world's number one proponent of war and death and the US' number one tool for the projection of US hegemony by force, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen who told none other than CNN's Christiane Amanpour on May 12 the following: "Referendums by separatists in Ukraine, such as May 11 in Donetsk, don't count. These referendums are illegal; they are organized in a chaotic manner with dubious and ambiguous questions."However to the West the presidential "election" does count. Unbelievable.

Geneva Conventions

Protocol I and Protocol II of the Geneva Conventions most directly apply to the situation in Ukraine. While Protocol II applies to internal armed conflicts Protocol I which deals with international conflicts would also apply if only due to the introduction of CIA/Greystone forces into the conflict.

Protocol I has 102 articles which should be studied in detail but overall it states: "Articles 51 and 54 outlaw indiscriminate attacks on civilian populations, and destruction of food, water, and other materials needed for survival. Indiscriminate attacks include directly attacking civilian (non-military) targets, but also using technology such as biological weapons, nuclear weapons and land mines, whose scope of destruction cannot be limited. A total war that does not distinguish between civilian and military targets is considered a war crime."

These articles apply to Ukraine as the junta's forces continue to bomb schools, hospitals and to date strictly civilian targets. The scope of the junta's war against the populations of eastern Ukraine can also be classified as a "total war".

"Articles 76 and 77, 15 and 79 provide special protections for women, children, and civilian medical personnel, and provide measures of protection for journalists."

Women and children are being killed indiscriminately in eastern Ukraine, medical personnel are not being allowed proper access to victims as was clearest in Odessa and journalists are being kidnapped, tortured and assassinated all over the country. It is important to note that conscripts into the Ukrainian post junta military must be ready to shoot unarmed women. Aquestionnaire used by the Ukrainian military asks: "Are you ready to shoot women?"

"Articles 43 and 44 clarify the military status of members of guerrilla forces. Combatant and prisoner of war status is granted to members of dissident forces when under the command of a central authority. Such combatants cannot conceal their allegiance; they must be recognizable as combatants while preparing for or during an attack."

While these articles apply to the Donetsk Self-Defense Forces who are clearly visible and readily identifiable, it takes the right to "prisoner of war" status away from the Right Sector and the nazi militias who purposefully obfuscate their identities and are not organized and directly led by a single centralized authority, although they do coordinate.

"Article 85 states that it is a war crime to use one of the protective emblems recognized by the Geneva Conventions to deceive the opposing forces (perfidy)."

The recent use by the junta of an attack helicopter with United Nations markings is clearly a very obvious and irrefutable act of perfidy.

"Articles 17 and 81 authorize the ICRC, national societies, or other impartial humanitarian organizations to provide assistance to the victims of war."

The junta's forces have continuously blocked humanitarian workers access to hostages and victims of the violence. This has occurred everywhere in the country. Currently busloads of children are not being allowed to flee Donetsk by the Ukrainian forces. Although they stopped setting busloads of civilians on fire, as they did before the Crimean referendum, the junta's forces nonetheless are making it difficult for non-combatants, especially women and children, to flee the war zone.

"Article 90 states that "The High Contracting Parties may at the time of signing, ratifying or acceding to the Protocol, or at any other subsequent time, declare that they recognize ipso facto and without special agreement, in relation to any other High Contracting Party accepting the same obligation, the competence of the [International Fact-Finding] Commission to enquire into allegations by such other Party, as authorized by this Article."

74 states have made such a declaration the US has not.

Protocol II most importantly states:

"Persons taking no active part in hostilities should be treated humanely (including military persons who have ceased to be active as a result of sickness, injury, or detention)."

"The wounded and sick shall be collected and cared for."

Currently junta forces are not allowing bodies to be removed from the areas around the airport in Donetsk and those who are attempting to reach their fallen comrades are coming under sniper fire and being killed.

The International Committee of the Red Cross

Although largely silent regarding the killing going on in Ukraine the Red Cross has in the past attempted to save the lives of, and protect the rights of, civilians in war zones: "Under the 1949 Geneva Conventions, collective punishment is a war crime. By collective punishment, the drafters of the Geneva Conventions had in mind the reprisal killings of World War I and World War II. In the First World War, during the Rape of Belgium, the Germans executed Belgian villagers in mass retribution for resistance activity. In World War II, the Germans carried out a form of collective punishment to suppress resistance. Entire villages or towns or districts were held responsible for any resistance activity that occurred in them.[3] The conventions, to counter this, reiterated the principle of individual responsibility. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Commentary to the conventions states that parties to a conflict often would resort to "intimidatory measures to terrorize the population" in hopes of preventing hostile acts, but such practices "strike at guilty and innocent alike. They are opposed to all principles based on humanity and justice."

"In some conflicts civilians have been specifically targeted and subjected to terrible atrocities, ignoring the very basis of the Geneva Conventions, respect for the human person. It is for this reason that the ICRC continues to press States to respect and ensure respect for the principles of IHL, especially the protection of civilians."

What the Right Sector and the nazi junta have done can no doubt be classified as a campaign of terror against the entire Ukrainian population.

"President" Poroshenko Continues the Killing, Moments of Silence

Even before being officially inaugurated the new "president" of Ukraine, Petr Poroshenko, has said he will continue the "operations' in the east of the country, underlining the complete and total disregard for the civilian lives that the junta is destroying. Poroshenko will continue the assault on the Ukrainian people started by Turchynov, Yatsenyuk, Tyagnybok and the Right Sector and is therefore guilty of war crimes as well.

This past week beady eyed fascist "acting-president" Turchynov called for a moment of silence for the crew of a helicopter that was downed as it was engaged in operations against civilians and self-defense forces in Donetsk. Turchynov and other junta officials have never called for a moment of silence for the civilians that are being killed further underlining their complicity in events such as Donetsk and Mariupol. And as with the sniper attacks on the Maidan no investigation has been carried out nor can one be expected to be carried out.

US Criminal Disregard for Human Lives

This complete and total lack of any kind of compassion or human understanding by the US Government, its top officials and the organizations and bodies that are responsible for advancing the interests of the US and the "West", is not only in complete and total contradiction to the unilaterally and self-arrogated role of "world's policeman" and "defender of democracy" (under the banner of which the US has destroyed and destabilized country after country) but is also unacceptable and reprehensible from a moral standpoint and contrary to all accepted international norms and standards set out in respected international instruments such as the Geneva Conventions and the UN Charter.

The armed coup d'état in Ukraine has further shown that the US is guilty of having and operating with egregious and reckless disregard for human lives and the wellbeing of civilians and those least able to defend themselves. As lives are being lost among the civilian population in Ukraine this issue must be brought to the forefront although the complete and total disregard for international laws and norms regarding sovereignty and the territorial integrity of countries are also being violated by the US Government on a monumental scale.

While many US based pundits, journalists and specialists are accusing the US Government and its officials of ignorance and callous disregard as to the consequences of their "operations" I would argue that it is much worse than even criminal negligence on a global scale. I would argue that the CIA/Nuland/Kerry/Obama and all of those responsible for everything that the US Government has done in its campaign to establish global hegemony during the last 20 years (and even going back further) know exactly what they are doing, are aware they are in violation of international law and quite simply just do not care.

Obama's New Endless War

This crass and callous exceptionalist attitude and complete disregard for the millions of people that the US has been directly responsible for killing was once again underlined during the past week by US President Obama in a speech to West Point graduates. Obama ridiculously told the latest generation of US storm troopers that the US was an exceptional nation and would continue to intervene around the world because, as he put it, if the US doesn't then no one would. He forgot to mention that such US style "interventions" are illegal and that the reason no one else does is because they respect the rule of international law, which of course is a distraction to be ignored by the US and Obama.

According to the World Socialist Website Obama has now phased the endless "War on Terror" into an endless "War to Promote US Interests". Something the Dick Cheney Project for a New American Century called the establishment of global US hegemony through the use of force.

The World Socialist Website wrote: Obama"… asserts a policy of permanent and global war in pursuit of the interests of the US financial elite. The media distortion is driven, on the one hand, by the partisan motives of Obama's Republican rivals, who seek to portray him as weak-kneed, and, on the other, by the support from a wealthy and privileged ‘liberal' elite for wars of aggression waged under the banners of ‘human rights' and ‘democracy'."

Ignorance is No Excuse

As anyone who has ever been to the US or had dealing with the US Government or its authorities knows, lack of knowledge of its Draconian Laws and Regulations is no excuse to prevent one being arrested or persecuted if one is targeted. Hence even if the US at some time in the future (perhaps at Nuremberg type trials against the Washington planners?) claims that they did not know the Right Sector was a nazi group and that by supporting them they would cause the deaths of thousands, ignorance is no excuse. The US is directly responsible for what we are seeing in Ukraine.

Operation Ukraine

After the so called "presidential elections" in Ukraine, elections which even the junta was forced to declare did not include the participation of more than 20 regions, a congratulatory note should be made to former NATO Ambassador and advisor to Dick (torture memos) Cheney, Victoria Nuland and the architects of Banderstan. They are many but bear with me as we recall who they are: The latest manifestation of OTPOR, the center for Applied Nonviolent Action and Strategies (CANVAS) and its head Srdja Popovic who has ties with Stratford and the CIA; CIA front USAID and all of its NGOs in Ukraine; Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt and Polish Foreign Minister Radosław Sikorski as well as EU foreign policy head Catherine Ashton (who thought is was a bad idea to investigate the Maidan snipers); billionaire George Soros and his International Renaissance Foundation; eBay founder Pierre Omidyar and his Omidyar Network; the National Endowment for Democracy, which is funded by the US Congress; key NGOs–Chesno, Center UA and Stop Censorship, and National Endow­ment for Democ­racy, funded largely by the US Congress; Exxon Oil and Chevron to whom Victoria Nuland gave an accounting in December of 2013 and finally Nuland's husband leading neo-conservative hawk Robert Kagan and all of the neocons behind the scenes.

Strange Snowden Connection

In researching for this article I came across a very curious connection to Edward Snowden and Pierre Omidyar. According to Pando Daily Pierre Omidyar now has control over the complete Snowden files after spending a mind-boggling quarter of a billion dollars to buy out reporters Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras.

The fact that a key player in Operation Ukraine now has complete control of Snowden's NSA leaks is in fact stunning, although I am sure the argument will be made that it is not related. This fact should have come to light from Edward Snowden himself, who continues to speak to western corporate controlled media outlets while shunning the media in the country that is protecting him, but alas Snowden has said nothing.


Operation Ukraine has had one benefit which cannot be understated both for the international community and for all citizens of the world brave enough to look outside of the confines of the western media box. Namely it has shown the institutionalized disregard for sovereignty and the lengths the West will go to meet their geopolitical objectives, including the killing of millions of people. It has also shown that the very ideas of democracy, rule of law and self-determination are merely abstract concepts for the west and lastly it has shown that the US will ally with anyone, including murderous nazi thugs if such a union can help it advance its goals.

Logical Consequence of Operation Ukraine

There is enough here to finally cause a true international outcry to end the global imperialist ambitions of the US and its allies. The logical solution can only be the formation of an international body that will finally reign in the United States and all of its illegality. This was have to be a body outside of the structure of the United Nations since as we saw by the Nuland dialogue with Ukrainian Ambassador Pyatt, even the UN head Ban Ki-Moon can be called on to participate in "gluing together" the overthrow of governments.

Countries Destroyed by the United States

The following is a list of countries where the US has organized coup d'états, supported revolutions, overthrown governments, invaded, annexed, supported groups or forces who overthrew or attempted to overthrow governments or outright executed the leaders.

Afghanistan, Albania, Angola, Argentina, Bolivia, Bosnia, Brazil, Cambodia, Chile, China, Colombia, Colorado, Congo, Cuba, Detroit, Dominican Republic, Egypt, El Salvador, Germany, Greece, Grenada, Guam, Guatemala, Haiti, Hawaii, Honduras, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Korea, Kuwait, Laos, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Macedonia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Oman, Pakistan, Panama, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Russia, Samoa, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, South Dakota, Sudan, Syria, Turkey, Ukraine, Uruguay, USSR, Venezuela, Vietnam, Virgin Islands, Yemen, Yugoslavia and Zaire (Congo).

What they have done and are doing to Native Americans might also be added to the list as the continuing genocide of the indigenous peoples is the foundation of endemic "American" racism and exceptionalism.

Final Solution

Disband NATO, prohibit the US from having military bases around the world and force the US to disarm.

Kiev Nazis Killing Civilians on Children’s Day

John Robles

The western backed junta in Kiev has announced that it will launch a massive offensive against the populations of eastern Ukraine to "clear the regions of opposition". The unprecedented war against the civilian population began with an aerial attack on apartment blocks, schools, hospitals and air strikes using cluster bombs on the administration building in Lugansk.

The death count continues to grow as more and more civilians including defenseless women and children are killed on a daily basis. The junta is guilty of war crimes but continues to kill with impunity.

International Children’s Day

On International Day for Protection of Children the junta in Kiev has announced that they will be carrying out massive military operations to clear out the populations of the eastern regions of the country that have chosen the path of federalization. Children’s Day, as the holiday is known in some countries was introduced in Ukraine in 2009.

The holiday was created to promote the objectives outlined in the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of the Child Charter which was adopted on November 20, 1958 and to promote the wellbeing of all children. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is a fundamental human rights treaty outlining the civil, political, economic, social, health and cultural rights of children.

Massive clearing of the eastern regions a war crime

All of the nations that have ratified the UNCRC are bound to it by international law. Here it is important to note that Ukraine has ratified it and the United States has not. The launching of a massive illegal military operation on Children’s Day against the civilian population in the eastern part of the country should be causing an international outcry and is in fact in violation of the CRC.

Not only has the junta been guilty of serious violations of the Geneva Conventions in the waging of its war against those opposed to the western backed fascist regime but has violated every national and international norm and standard with regard to civilians, political opposition, protestors, journalists, victims, media, freedom of movement, elections, the rules of war, non-combatants and on and on.

Today after announcing the beginning of a massive operation to clear out the eastern regions the junta ordered the bombing of the Government Administration building in Lugansk. The announcement and all of the actions it has carried it out since it deposed the president show the impunity that the regime believe it can act with something underlined by the arrogant attitude of its officials who continually provoke Moscow and speak to Russia’s top officials as if they were the leaders of some backward banana republic of little significance.

Illegal Munitions Used in Lugansk Bombing

Reports from the ground and on Russian media say that Ukrainian aircraft dropped cluster bombs on the administrative building in Lugansk. As of August 1, 2010 cluster munitions have been banned after the implementation of the Convention on Cluster Munitions which has been signed by 108 countries. Therefore the junta regime in Kiev can add such a violation to the list of crimes it is committing.

By announcing that it is going to clear the eastern parts of the countries the junta is guilty of one of its most serious war crimes and is guilty of waging a war of collective punishment. The key war crime in launching its operation is defined under the 1949 Geneva Conventions which called collective punishment a war crime.

The collective punishment clause covered in Article 33 of the Geneva Conventions was designed to address events such as the reprisal killings of World War I and World War II. The Germans executed entire villages and districts who were held responsible for any resistance activity that occurred in them.

In light of this the Geneva Conventions underlined the principle of individual responsibility which means that the Ukrainian army and its forces should bge fighting strictly the "terrorists" who are engaged in active combat against it, even if that label is allowed to be used and is legitimate, which it is not.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Commentary to the conventions states that: "parties to a conflict often would resort to "intimidatory measures to terrorize the population" in hopes of preventing hostile acts, but such practices "strike at guilty and innocent alike. They are opposed to all principles based on humanity and justice."

Nazi war criminals are terrorizing Europe once again in 2014. And they must be stopped.

CIA Controlled Explosives Found on 9-11

Doctor Ronald Cutburth

CIA involved with explosives found on 9/11 - Dr. Ronald Culbreth

One of the most marginalized groups after the events of 9/11 were the scientists and the engineers who could actually prove the fallacy of the official version of those events. From false arrests to demonization, to outright murder after 9/11, there was an unprecedented campaign to silence anyone who went against the official version of those events. The evidence pointing to US Government involvement at the highest levels is wide-ranging, well-documented and proven, yet no investigation is allowed to be carried out and no official has or will be found guilty of one of the worst single acts of homicide in the history of mankind.

Although the Western media attempts to dismiss all talk of a concerted effort and inside plan, involving the events of 9/11 and everything that we have seen since then, the scientific evidence and the facts themselves, as well as all of the events that have occurred since September 11, 2001, point to something much more sinister and evil than most people are willing to accept.

It is the outright horrific nature of what has been occurring since 9/11 that forces normal civilized people to shake their head in disbelief in attempt to deny that such a plot is possible.

Professor Ronald Cutburth, a scientist who had access to secret data at Lawrence Livermore Labs, concerning explosives and nano-thermite, and other such projects, witnessed the CIA involvement with powerful high-tech explosives which have been proven to have been used on the buildings of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

Mr. Cutburth believes that the new world order wished to take over the world and that what we are seeing now in Ukraine is just the next step before the goal of the destruction of the Russian Federation.

This is John Robles, you are listening to an interview with Dr. Ronald Cutburth. He is an Engineering Scientist and Intelligence Expert, and did his dissertation at the Lawrence Livermore Lab in the United States.

Robles: Hello Sir! How are you this evening?

Cutburth: Hello Russia! I wanted to talk to you to help Moscow and Russia. Things are getting dangerous nowadays, or more dangerous than people realize or expected. The new world order controls our news in America more strongly than what they said the Soviet Union controlled the news. We are blinded in America.

So, this whole thing of threat that are in Ukraine right now, it is all chain-connected to use the demolition of the World Trade Centers, as a means to get started, to kick off what they call the Arab Spring. It really started when they blew up the World Trade Center.

Robles: Can you tell us about some of the things you know, as an engineering scientist, some of the concrete inarguable evidence that the World Trade Center was blown up, that it was not the result of lateral impacts from aircraft?

Cutburth: No, it wasn’t. There is an organization that I belong to called Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. And there’s over 2,000 engineers and scientists in the organization. But we can’t get any hearing because of the controlled news media. They have such an iron fisted control of the news; we can’t get a new investigation.

The purpose of it was so they could make a war in Afghanistan, and then follow through with more wars and this builds their war machine, and made it possible for them to rob all these Arab countries. But also it helped cut down the strength of the Arab countries and helped Israel. People thought: “oh, see, maybe they helping Israel”. In reality, it helped the new world order come closer to being able to control the world. That is what it is more about. And so you could say: “well this is to help Israel along” - not really, because it puts now Israel in danger.

There is immense amount of evidence about the World Trade Center. I am writing an article right now for our organization proving that nano RDX was used to blow up the concrete.

Robles: Can you give some details about this material?

Cutburth: They talked about Livermore Lab. Well I have been at Livermore Lab, I designed with their research. And when I realized that it was likely true, that it was developed at Livermore Lab. It is called nanothermite and I found that also they’ve developed another one called nano RDX. RDX is supposed to be a high explosive. But now nano RDX, it could be 5 times stronger. It is almost like nuclear weapon material. And who would it be available to, is what I am looking at too. It would be available to only people involved at high levels and that would the CIA.

Robles: Can you tell us a little bit about your work at Lawrence Livermore Labs, which is one of the most top-secret facilities in the US?

Cutburth: Yeah, I was there as a designer, but while there I produced patentable ideas. It was the main issue of patent on laser optic hardware, high-precision lasers, for large lasers. And that was partly for isotope separation, nuclear material isotope separation. And then, they were so happy with my work, when I went back to work on my dissertation, they opened the doors for me and I was able to evaluate 200 of their programs and I have that in my dissertation, which is titled Operations Analysis of Engineering Science Permission, Lawrence Livermore National Lab. It is an important dissertation.

Now, I found the level of their skills was very, very high and one of the programs I did research was one called sol-gel. Now I find sol-gel is the heart of nanothermite, nano-explosives. It is extremely powerful. This nanothermite, nano RDX is perhaps 4 times stronger than regular RDX. It is like nuclear material.

Robles: Nano RDX it is called?

Cutburth: Nano RDX.

Robles: This was found at WTC?

Cutburth: No, the nanothermite was found there. They were not looking for a nano RDX. Nano RDX would be harder to find. It is a different chemical. They did find nanothermite and it was mixed in with all of the dust, it was all around those little place, so it ... but nobody will investigate that, even though we have scientists that proved that it was there.

So anyway, the key point about this though to me is that the only people who have the available, would be high level people in the American Government, mainly the CIA. I suspect that George Tenet, the CIA Director, was behind it. We see that … we hear a lot of stories about what all the things the CIA are involved. In fact, part of my research, one of my reports I found, I saw the comments that the CIA bothering them about censors of all kind. So it’s CIA connected.

Robles: I’m sorry – about censors?

Cutburth: The CIA is connected with the nano-explosives. So, tracking an investigation, even though there’s 2,000 engineers that can prove that it was done by explosives. We can’t get the investigation because of the new world order news media. The news media, they have the news totally closed up. This is worse than what they claimed the Soviet Union was, when you get this kind of murder. And that it stretches out is the basis of causing attacks all over the world, it is the basis for it, a million people dead now.

And so, we could see what was going to happen and I could see what was coming. When they got up to Syria I claimed that Putin won, he got the new world order stopped at Syria, I said that before he actually stopped them. Now the reason I knew he could do that…now, the military won’t say it, they said they don’t know why Obama backed off. It must be because Putin can sink our aircraft carriers now.

America has been busy. They made those aircraft carriers. We thought it was national defense, but they used them to attack a little country. So, the Russians, instead of spending all that money to develop the aircraft carriers, they just developed a super fast cruise missile that can sink them. And that fixed the story.

And that is very crucial, and that is important about the Russian aerospace defense theory – extremely highly-skilled and I saw a report. And, I like I said, I'm an intelligence expert; it’s also, it’s strategic planning. Another thing that has an advantage over them is that he was former KGB. But they do the scare stories saying: “oh he is dangerous, he is KGB”. And in reality he is a highly educated intelligence expert. I know what that is. I probably don’t have his skills or I don’t have the tools, but he is a highly-skilled intelligence agent.

So, that matters and that put him upfront, and that puts you out in the edge. But it is dangerous. So, now, when they can’t defeat him, they are going to destroy him with the news media. That’s what they’ve been doing.

I’ve done some research and I’ve found there are all kinds of Israel fronts on the news and new world order fronts on the news. There is a trace where they registered. And I warned Israel, and they better not count on the new world order protecting them, and it could get them destroyed, because Russia has to defend themselves. They are in a defensive position totally.

I’ll give you an example of the controlled news media. Think back, John McCain said in his campaign using Sara Palin, he got her to say: “Obama gets elected, Russia will invade”. So, then, what happens? They set it up so Russia has to invade in self-defense. So, this whole thing of gaining the Crimea, they had a very good reason, they didn’t invade, they were invited in.

Robles: This invasion stuff, it is all a lie. Russia has not and will not invade anything, and did not, and Russia did not annex Crimea. I just want to get this out again. The Crimean people, 98.6% of them voted in a completely peaceful democratic referendum. There were no tanks, there wasn’t what is going on now in eastern Ukraine.

Cutburth: Yes, I know all that, but what I'm driving at is the sequence of how this all happened, that they knew they would be setting Russia up.

Robles: And the timing, right after the Olympics, right. I mean they really just had to?

Cutburth: It was known a long time before then. They knew about it back, when John McCain was running for president in 2008. They knew they were going to be doing this in Ukraine.

Robles: Just like South Ossetia!

Cutburth: They knew about it back in 2008. That’s what I mean, how serious this is with the new world order and their strategic planning. They…You got to think, they used the destruction of World Trade Centers that was in the year 2001. Now given a long that was Goebbels but they used that for a sequence of operations of murder and slaughter all over the country that when finally got up to the infusion of their plan to set it up and make it look like Russia is attacking somebody. Russia is defending itself, totally.

Robles: These people they are killing people all over the world. You talking about 3,000 American civilians that they killed on 9/11. How many millions have been killed in the so-called war on terror, which was aggressive attacks on countries? Afghanistan never attacked the United States. Iraq never attacked the United States. They weren’t even involved in 9/11. So, who are these people?

Cutburth: The new world order has been around for centuries. It was called the illuminati and then it became the new world order. The new world order are homicidal maniacs, I believe. I made a list of the attacks they’ve been doing since Bosnia. They slaughtered people in Bosnia. Then, the next thing they had to come up with a new idea of how they could attack a lot of countries. And that was the World Trade Center destruction. That was the method. And they followed through with that method.

The next false attack was saying Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, which was a lie. And now, think about it – that was George Tenet who said they had weapons of mass destruction. And they proved he lied. Now, think about this – they never have gone back and arrested him. So when he lied about Iraq, then why not go back and see if he lied about the World Trade Center, because the thing about the FBI said that Osama Bin Laden did not do that. But they ignored that. They said: “oh no, it doesn’t matter, we’ll just say he did that anyway”.

Robles: At the beginning Osama Bin Laden himself denied that he did it, the real Osama Bin Laden. You called these people homicidal lunatics, murderous maniacs…

Cutburth: They find reasons to do genocide. I gave this list of the attacks in Bosnia. And I said OK, now we got up to Syria and they murdered people in Syria so they could attack. And I said: “now, Putin stop them there”. So, now they are going to be going to Ukraine, that’s where they are going to be slaughtering people next. And what did we get? Slaughter in Ukraine.

Russian Hacker Attack on Indian Nation Computer Bogus

After recent revelations that the US Government engages in massive hacking, the planting of malware and spyware to gain control and access to computers and engages in massive internet surveillance one has to take all accusations by the US of hacking with a grain of salt.

After the charges against the People's Republic of China on the eve of the recent historic Russian/Chinese negotiations and now with news accusations against Russia, these cyber charges have taken on more of a political character than ever before. Recent unsubstantiated reports of a Russian hacker breaking into a First Nations tribal server are simply an attempt to sow discord between the Russian people and the First Nations people of North America, peoples who are bound by a hundreds year old Peace Treaty, the Two Row Wampum.

According to a representative of the tribal nations of North America, reports of a supposed "Russian hacker attack" on a tribal website are nothing but an attempt to divide an alliance between the Indian nations and the Russian Federation.

Hello, this is John Robles, I am speaking with Thahoketoteh, he is an elder with the Bear Clan and the Mohawk Nation.

Robles: Hello Sir, how are you this evening?

Thahoketoteh: I am great John, and I hope you are as well as I am?

Robles: First off, if we could, I would like to get your opinion on these reports that a so-called Russian hacker has attacked a first nation's computer for some reason, a tribal computer in Washington State. What do you make of that?

Thahoketoteh: Well, it's almost laughable to someone like me. I'm onto to all of the … I write the news every day and so I'm all over all this stuff, and the only time I've seen is a link that you had shown me, and when I start to investigate that they had never mentioned, well number one – what would anyone need from a Tribe Band Council's computer?

I mean, all they're doing is administering the poverty for the Federal Government, who is reneging on every contact it ever had with them.

Why would a Russian hacker go in there – number one? I mean, right off the back it makes no sense, and it's always anti-Russia propaganda through the US, it always has been since the Cold War, and now this Ukraine thing: pure propaganda. I've heard nothing from Indian country.

Robles: Why would they want to? So you haven't heard anything from any of the tribes in Washington or anybody in your network? Because you are following all of the nations' news…

Thahoketoteh: Yes.

Robles: Why at this juncture, why do you think they are trying to do this right at this point?

Thahoketoteh: Well, you know, in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, in 2008 Prime Minister Stephen Harper stood up in the House of Commons in Ottawa, and he apologized for the residential school holocaust that occurred here. Thinking he could just apologize for that and it would be good.

He set up a Truth and Reconciliation Commission, then in 2008, and they've just ended their five-year mandate.

First thing was to develop the truth about what happened, and it's horrifying. So the truth is that the Crown committed genocide, that's what it is.

So now they're onto to the Reconciliation Strategy part, and I went to an event last week, met Chief Justice Murray Sinclair, who is a Cree, but he is also a Supreme Court Judge, so he has taken an oath to The Bar, which makes him no longer a Cree, but anyways he's done some beautiful work, because he's trying to do the right thing, but he said that his mandate was find out the truth about what happened and develop a reconciliation strategy. But he cannot charge the Crown, that is what he said.

So when I talked to him, I said you can't charge the Crown because it's all Admiralty Court in Canada, and that is the Crown because it's controlled through The Vatican, and The Vatican is the Crown, and he's shaking his head, "… yes that's exactly right!"

And I said except the International Court of Arbitration in the Hague is not a Vatican controlled court, not an Admiralty Court, we can charge the Crown there, so we could get a fair trial.

Anything that we do here, in this country, anything in their courts is all fixed, we can never get a fair trial on anything. I know, I just did two of them against the Crown in Federal Court myself, and I can tell you there is no way to beat them in the Admiralty Court, they will not even hear your argument if it's against them. They are not going to try themselves. You are never going to get a fair trial.

Robles: Can you tell us about what happened recently with the Wampum Belts?

Thahoketoteh: Yes, those Wampum Belts, we did a story on Mohawk Nation News. When my grandfather Etowokoam, he was one of their Chiefs that showed up in London, in 1710, we made Wampum Belts and presented them to all thirteen bloodlines, because we knew about the thirteen bloodlines in 1710.

Then when they made their first United States, it was no coincidence that it was thirteen states. The first flag of the United States is thirteen stars, one for each of the bloodlines, that's the royalty that runs the Vatican, and the Christian Monarchs of Europe that developed the Vatican.

To me, when you start attacking the Vatican like I have, an Indian, and now the truth is out that they're guilty of genocide and also that they're not being charged with genocide, even though they are guilty …

So, if I was in the Vatican, I would be kind of worried, personally, I would think that anything they do with Indians and Russia is to dissuade us from pursuing in a non-Vatican court: which that one that Nicholas set up in the Hague, that is a non-Vatican court, a non-Admiralty Court. It was set up for world peace, and that is what we are about.

We are the sovereign here. No corporation could be a sovereign. It can't happen, that's pretend, that's artificial, a corporation is artificial.

Robles: We discovered some Wampum Belts here in Russia, why were those important?

Thahoketoteh: They were from 1710, when we came there, and they record, I'm just looking at them: what has to happen is we have to get together with some Russian people.

I know that you had some ambassador in 1710, and he ended up being a writer, and I ask your people at the Peter the Great and see and if they could research his stuff and find out what he wrote about. He was there, so he would have wrote something about that if he was a writer, but I guess it's all in Russian so no-one has gone through it yet I guess. That would be very interesting for me.

Those Wampum Belts are recording, I'm looking at them, and they show: the arrows coming from one way that would be us. The arrows coming from the other way; that would be you guys, and the Peace being that's why we were there… So that's what the Wampum Belts are about.

But again, we need to have a group of us around to discuss this Wampum Belt with some Russians and some Mohawk people, the same way it was made. It was made like that. It would be a recording of what we were discussing, and it was about peace that we were talking – peace on earth. So this is historic, a peace conference...

Robles: So this was the first to …?

Thahoketoteh: The first peace conference anywhere in the world for anyone. We came there to spread the peace.

After the Great Peace of Montreal with France in 1701, that's an ancient Iroquois thing, and from that we developed the Two Row Wampum that we took over to Albany, to the British.

So in July 1701, June 1701, June 25th, that was the finalization of the Great Peace of Montreal. We were now… we buried all of our weapons under the tree of peace with France and all her allies, and then went down in July, a month later, to Albany and gave the Two Row to the British, and said: "You are welcome to come and settle in Ontario", and that's the only reason they ever came to Ontario, at our invitation.

And so, they came, and now they pretend none of that ever happened, and that they are the sovereign.

Robles: Can you tell us about your case that's coming up, that you are trying raise awareness for and raise funds for and promote, that's going to take place at the court in The Hague?

Thahoketoteh: I'm talking with a few different people in the Iroquois Confederacy, because we are the sovereign here, we want to charge the Crown with genocide just for what they did to our children in that aboriginal school holocaust. Unbelievable what they did to us, and it still affects our children to this day.

So we want them charged with genocide, and so we are going to do that, and so there is a lot of money and expenses. So I'm just trying to raise some capital, access some funding to be able to do this. I know what it takes, it's not hard but it takes time. You'd have to travel to The Hague and get a… There's a lot of things that need to be done. So that's what the monies that we need.

Personally I'm willing to do everything myself, if I don't have any help and I will, because I need to do that for my grandchildren. Because no more, we are not going through the same war, the 500-year war called colonialism is almost over. We are almost there.

We are the sovereign and that's the key.

Robles: Where or how could people support the case if they want to, financially or otherwise? Maybe there are some good lawyers out there who might be willing to give their time something?

Thahoketoteh: I would love if there was a good lawyer who would help, that really does want to do something. I don't know, maybe you have them over there in Russia, they don't exist over here.

Anyone who has taken an oath to The Bar has taken an oath to the City of London bankers. That's what people don't understand. That's why you could never get a lawyer, because they've taken an oath to The Bar, and The Bar is the City of London bankers.

Robles: I see. Now you mentioned it's crashing down around them, and you mentioned something about the Bilderberg meeting, where they said their New World Order is coming to an end. Why is that?

Thahoketoteh: They keep going on about a New World Order, but it's all old, there's nothing new about it, it's all old world order. And it's the old world order that's crashing down, and I guess they just figured they would continue with this old world with a new mask, a corporate mask? I suppose that was their idea.

But it's not working out for them, and they talked about, mainly about Russia, Ukraine, about everything falling apart.

They were trying to take down the Russian Empire since the Cold War ended, and that's what that whole Ukraine thing that they set up. We all know about false flags. You know they can't do anything anymore, and that's all they ever done, nothing but false flags.

I loved what Putin did at the Olympics, showing what Russia's given to humanity and history. If America was to do the same, they've given humanity war and genocide, nothing else. One after the other, and that's what they do. What they did when they came in 1779, people think they had an American Revolution, it never happened.

If you just look at 1776, 77, 78, the biggest army Washington had up till 1778, he had 1,500 men and he crossed the Delaware in December 1778. That was the biggest army he had, and he beat the Hessian, who were paid mercenaries, so they were paid to lose, and then one month later General Sullivan amasses 12,800 troops, cavalry, and he marches on Onondaga, the capital of the Iroquois Confederacy, to do one thing – to chop down the tree of peace. And they, just like in Avatar, that tree was 3,000 years old; they chopped it down. And they turned the Constitution of Peace into the Constitution of War.

And they just copied the Kaienerekowa, instead of a Council of Women they put in a Senate, instead of a Council of Men they put in a Congress. Then they just put a hierarchal president over it all, like a Roman Emperor sort of, so it really doesn't matter because you've got this guy and he will do what he wants. So it's just ridiculous, it's not democracy, it's nothing to do with it.

So that's really … people think well the American Revolution never happened. Americans have never been free from the bankers of London and still are run and owned by them, outright.

Robles: There was a kind of a black joke, I guess you would call it, at the end of the Soviet Union, when the country started falling apart and people were falling into despair with unemployment and poverty this was after the Soviet Union collapsed, and some people would say: "Well you wanted America, you got it!" And I'm thinking about the people in Ukraine, these people that supposedly wanted the West and wanted America, and look what's happening there now?

Thahoketoteh: You get America. You get war you get war, death, disease, destruction, and debt. That's what you get from America nothing else, what else could you get from them? There's no good way to look at it.

It's getting worse every day in America, and they will paint whatever picture they want. Remember the Bilderberg own the media, all of it, they have everything controlled they think, but they don't control all the Internet, and that's all they've been trying to do with this new TPP and all these other things.

But you know what, and you say about Russia, I think I mentioned I've just read Nicholas and Alexandra, it's the most amazing story I've ever read, to tell you the truth, you know it really is. And what a phenomenal history you guys got. I hope you guys are doing something about the hundred year anniversary of World War 1 starting in July.

Austro-Hungary attacked Serbia, ancient Russian … I mean Constantine was from Serbia, he was Russian, they all speak Russian. Within one month of the war starting Austro-Hungary doesn't even exist anymore, and Russia marches on Prussia, and this is phenomenal history, which we are never taught this at school.

Canada always goes on about the, not even a 100 thousand men they lost in World War 1, and Britain goes on about 900 thousand. But reading that book, and Nicholas lost 1.8 million Russians in the first year, in 1914. Nobody talks about that.

Robles: It's the same thing with World War II.

Thahoketoteh: The same thing with WWII and Napoleon. So then, I started looking at that, I'm thinking: "What's going on, why do they always attack Russia?" And it goes right back to the Vatican splitting off the Christian Church in 900 AD, and setting up shop in Rome, calling themselves Roman Catholics; they're really just Freemason devil worshippers. Just look at the Vatican, it's all masonic, they got all those statues, and they got those obelisks from Egypt, all kinds of masonic stuff the whole thing.

Robles: Well it makes you wonder, with the Doctrine of Discovery which was just a license to commit genocide for gold.

Thahoketoteh: Yes.

Robles: How could it be some spiritual, or how could they even talk about God?

Thahoketoteh: Right, that's a fact. Right, they are the devil. They are the devil worshippers and the Revelations, again I'm not a Christian, but in Revelations they talk about the false church, and the Catholic Church is the false church.

Constantine was Russian, the capital of Rome was Constantinople, the capital of the Church was Kiev "Russia" Ukraine didn't exist. Kiev, Russia, always was Kiev, Russia, in those days.

To me it's quite clear why Napoleon attacked through the Vatican, and then why Hitler attacked through the Vatican and now Obama is attacking through the Vatican? What is going on Obama?

Robles: We are almost out of time here. One more time, fill us in, what's your view on this hacker attack, and then if you could give us some details about how people could support the case and what's going on with it?

Thahoketoteh: Well the hacker attack, pure blatant …like I wouldn't even respond to it if I was you guys because they are just throwing out some bait seeing if they can get you to bite or something. They are trying to develop some anti-Indian and anti-Russian, divide the Mohawk-Russian Alliance, that's what they are trying to divide.

You found the Wampum Belt, that makes you our ancient ally. You predate the colonies, the thirteen colonies, you predated that by 70 years, they didn't even exist, when we already had a treaty belt with you, and it's in place, and people can see it.

I'm not making this up. We are one sovereign, you are another, we have an ancient alliance. It's about that. They are trying to kibosh any of that, to get natives turned against you right now

Robles: I see. Where can people go to find out about, maybe possibly donate, or maybe we have an international lawyer out there who could help?

Thahoketoteh: Please, I have a website, its thahoketoteh dot ws. That's my website.

This is John Robles, I was speaking to Mr Thahoketoteh, he is an elder with the Bear Clan in the Mohawk nation. He is also a journalist and a contributor to Mohawk Nation News dot com.

Thank you very much for listening and as always I wish you the best wherever you may be.

On D-Day Never Forget the Great Patriotic Wars

John Robles with Michael John Smith

When French President Francois Hollande invited President Vladimir Putin to take part in the 70th Anniversary D-Day Celebrations he stated: "We can have different views. But I didn't forget and will never forget that the Russian people lost millions of lives in World War II." The President of France must be commended for not forgetting, he is obviously one of the few western leaders who has not forgotten the lessons of history and one who is pragmatic and who connection with reality does not change with the perpetual political winds of change.

Against the backdrop of the events in Ukraine, where the West and its agents have unleashed Nazi and fascist forces bent on the destruction of Russians, the "Moskali" and anyone they can demonize as "pro-Russian", watching the West celebrate D-Day while at the same supporting Nazis in Kiev and ignoring war crimes being committed by fascists in Ukraine, one is left with the a sickening feeling and a lingering unease that something is completely and utterly wrong here.

Just yesterday, on the eve of D-Day 8,700 refugees fled the punitive military operations being waged on the populations in eastern Ukraine by the fascist junta who has vowed to clear out the east and found refuge in Russia. Yes, 8,700 women and children and innocent civilians fleeing those who would follow Nazi ideology and who are bent on nothing less than their total and complete annihilation. Their crime? Being in regions that are against the junta in Kiev. According to Pavel Astakhov, the Russian President’s Children’s Rights Ombudsman, some of the refugees recounted how a small boy was shot to death for wearing a St. George’s Ribbon.

The West however has suddenly become blind to Nazis, refugees, war crimes, democracy and the rights of people’s to self-determination, not to mention the UN Charter, the Geneva Conventions and the Rome Statutes. Not even the International Red Cross is admitting that there is a humanitarian disaster taking place in eastern Ukraine.

The US/NATO/EU through its nefarious instruments and organizations and with conscience knowledge of what it was doing brought about an armed coup d’état in Kiev and installed a puppet regime to bring about its geopolitical objectives. That illegal fascist junta has not conducted a mockery of what is being passed for as presidential elections and elected an oligarch sympathetic to their cause who continues to "clear the east" and will fast track Ukraine into allowing NATO to place its war machinery on Russia’s border.

I can try to be politically correct and diplomatic as some of our officials are at times when they refer to these monsters as "partners" and "colleagues" but my readers know that is not my style, and labeling such amoral murderous madmen and hypocrites as such is demeaning to the memory of everyone who died as a result of or fighting the first Nazi scourge. So how dare they celebrate a victory in a war that they only assisted in winning? How dare they blame Russia for unleashing Nazis in Ukraine and destabilizing the country because the people said no to NATO and an EU agreement? How dare they? Dare they may.

The West has completely forgotten the lessons that should have been learned from World War II and as it celebrates the landing at Normandy this is an incredibly sad development. Once again Russia is left to fight a fascist scourge.

The Great Patriotic War

Last February, when US propaganda outlet CNN, desecrated a great monument to the Great Patriotic War I wrote an article which is still being cited today in article written by a writer who is doing her utmost to demonize Russia and President Putin. In it I wrote about the real events of WWII, without the propaganda revisionism that is evident in the western educational system. I would like to share that with you once again because it is more than topical today.

Previous article by Robles: "… the American educational system and the US media promotes myths, institutionally implements omissions and spreads falsehoods about the Great Patriotic War, known in the West as World War II."

"To hide US collusion with the Nazis, even after the war when over 40,000 of them were given refuge in the US, and to glorify their own small effort in the war, Americans and many countries in the West are taught and continue to believe that it was the US and its "allies" that won World War II on the Western Front. Nowhere do American historical textbooks (and if I am wrong and some have been updated please e-mail me) fairly portray the effort of the USSR in winning the war on the Eastern Front. For it was won on the Eastern Front, the West's D-Day was for all intents and purposes a mopping up operation on the Western Front and mere support for the Soviet Forces."

"The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) lost more than 28 million people in their heroic effort to rid the world of the Nazi [sic] scourge and blood flowed all over its territory. In contrast the US lost about 400 thousand which is about how many Italy lost and less than half of what Yugoslavia lost but is still worthy of mentioning, but to say they won the war is an egregious lie and historical revisionism. Of which the US is clearly unapologetically guilty but which follows the endemic US belief that for some reason their lives are worth more than the lives of others. This belief is founded on their own exceptionalism, the genocidal nature of the basis of the "American" state, their endemic racism and their long history of enslavement and exploitation of other peoples."

"… for Americans war is an abstraction, something that happens to others, in faraway lands and to strange and "foreign" people. And this fact can be no more clearer than the American outcry when "American boys" start coming home in body bags or beautifully flag covered coffins. Rarely if ever is there an outcry if some poor Afghan family is droned into oblivion, this on the other hand is seen as normal."

"Americans have never faced and enemy on "their" territory (other than fighting the French, English and Spanish for stolen Indian lands) and they have never seen their cities destroyed, or their neighbors butchered, or their daughters raped, or their people slaughtered. Blood has never flown on their territory as it did in Belarus and Russia and all of Europe and as it is flowing in…"Ukraine.

President Putin attending Ceremonies

President Vladimir Putin will attend a ceremony later today commemorating the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy. On June 3rd in Sochi, ahead of his visit to France, President Putin gave an interview to Radio Europe 1 and the TF1 TV channel. In it the President once again laid out the reality of the situation in Ukraine for the information ally challenged western audiences.

President Putin

President Putin did not call the Right Sector and the fascists who were brought to power Nazis, and like a true statesman he deferred to the organizers as "friends", but what he says must be repeated because in his words lies the truth, and the truth is that Russia has had nothing to do with what has occurred in Ukraine nor with what is happening there today. Russia is faced with an unprecedented attack on its security and a historic campaign of demonization as well as sanctions while once again faced with the task of fighting fascists. I am confident: Russia beat the Nazis once, Russia will beat them again.

"There was a conflict and that conflict arose because the former Ukrainian president refused to sign an association agreement with the EU…. We discussed this with our European partners. Instead of continuing the debates by legitimate and diplomatic means, our European friends and our friends from the United States supported the anti-constitutional armed coup. This is what happened. We did not cause this crisis to happen. We were against this course of events."

"The point is no one should be brought to power through an armed anti-constitutional coup, and this is especially true in post-Soviet space where government institutions are not fully mature. When it happened some people accepted the regime and were happy about it while other people, say, in eastern and southern Ukraine just won’t accept it. And it is vital to talk with the people who didn’t accept this change of power instead of sending tanks, as you said yourself, instead of firing missiles at civilians from the air and bombing non-military targets."

President Putin answered about false claims of Russian troops and advisors: "Proof? Why don’t they show it? The entire world remembers the US Secretary of State demonstrating the evidence of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, waving around some test tube with washing powder in the UN Security Council. Eventually, the US troops invaded Iraq, Saddam Hussein was hanged and later it turned out there had never been any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. You know, it's one thing to say things and another to actually have evidence. I will tell you again: no Russian troops… There are no armed forces, no Russian 'instructors' in southeastern Ukraine and, there never were any."

President Putin also said: that Russia had never "annexed Ukraine"; that the Ukrainian government must now sit down and talk with their own people instead of using weapons, tanks, planes and helicopters; that joining [NATO] would cause a partial loss of sovereignty; that if Ukraine joins NATO, NATO's infrastructure will move directly towards the Russian border, which cannot leave us indifferent; that it is a delusion that Russian troops annexed Crimea; that under Article 1 of the UN Charter the Crimean people held a referendum and that in accordance with the expression of the will of people who live there, Crimea is now part of the Russian Federation and its constituent entity.

On US foreign policy: "Speaking of US policy, it's clear that the United States is pursuing the most aggressive and toughest policy to defend their own interests – at least, this is how the American leaders see it – and they do it persistently. There are basically no Russian troops abroad while US troops are everywhere. There are US military bases everywhere around the world and they are always involved in the fates of other countries even though they are thousands of kilometers away from US borders. So it is ironic that our US partners accuse us of breaching some of these rules."

A good friend of mine Michael John Smith, the last person convicted of spying for the Soviet Union in the World, and someone who is especially outraged by the support by the West of Nazis in Ukraine was kind enough to give his views on the twisting of history by the West when it comes to World War II.

Robles: Given the current situation in Ukraine and the fact that the Nazi junta is currently engaged in punitive military operations against the civilian population in what has been called by the "elected" president Petr Poroshenko an operation to "clear the eastern regions" and the continued demonization of Russia by the West, which is forced to deal with a real threat to its security and its people from western backed fascists, what is your impression of the D-Day celebrations currently under way in Normandy?

Smith: "Throughout the era following the Second World War it has always been presented through the media in the UK that the D-Day landings of June 6th 1944 were the start of the downfall of the Nazi regime. Children are taught at school that without the allied invasion of Normandy then Hitler would not have been defeated."

"Nobody will deny the heroic way in which American, British and other allied troops bravely fought their way off the Normandy beaches and battled against the Nazis as part of the Western Front. But that Western Front was in the planning stage for an awful long time, and those populations in countries occupied by Nazi troops were desperate to see an end to the war, and they had to wait many months for the allied forces to decide when to make their move. Some sceptics at the time even believed that the British and the Americans were waiting for Hitler to defeat the Soviet Union before they would make a move and open up a Western Front!"

"Because the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings is happening at this time, it concentrates our minds on their significance. One point that stands out as a distortion of history is that, whatever the significance of battles on the Western Front, it was really on the Eastern Front where the major part of the Second World War was won. Would any genuine military historian really concentrate all this attention on D-Day, when the facts tell us that millions more were fighting hundreds of miles away on the Eastern Front, and that it was the Soviet Army that defeated Hitler and the scourge of Nazism in Europe?"

"True history is telling what actually happened, and not some fiction that provides Hollywood with such blockbusters as Saving Private Ryan or The Longest Day, but then the USA always glorifies war as a beneficial experience. Perhaps it is considered more patriotic for a US audience to show Americans fighting Germans, when the real bloodbath had occurred among the Russian population facing the Nazi Blitzkrieg."

"What this D-Day celebration should be telling us is that we will never again accept fascist parties running countries around the world. This is something most normal people would support. However, we see those same Nazi style elements emerging and taking over in Ukraine in 2014, and the USA and other western governments praising them as democratic groups that should be encouraged. How dare these western governments lie to us about the true nature of the neo Nazi threat, festering away in modern Europe? Have our leaders, particularly Obama and Cameron, learned nothing from previous wars?"

"Instead of blaming Russia and President Putin for the troubles in Ukraine, the western powers assembled to celebrate D-Day should be turning their attention to promoting world peace and working together to stop a growing civil war in Ukraine. How can world leaders celebrate D-Day, 70 years ago, and yet turn a blind eye to the suffering of innocent civilians today in the heart of Europe?"


The Eastern Front: The Great Patriotic War

Given the record keeping of the day it is difficult to give an exact number of those killed on what is called the "Eastern Front" by the West and the Great Patriotic War by the USSR and Russia, but of the estimated up to 80 million deaths caused by the war between 28 to 40 million of those who perished were Russians and citizens of the USSR who died on the "Eastern Front". The war was fought between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, considered to be the principal belligerent powers.

Although no forces from the United Kingdom or the United States fought on the Eastern Front, they did provide material aid to the USSR in what was called a Lend-Lease Policy yet they failed to meet the specific quotas that had been agreed on. Some say this is due to the secret desire for Nazi Germany to defeat the USSR.

The war waged on for years and when Nazi Germany was almost defeated and the Soviet Union was moving closer to Berlin, the West engaged in a race to Berlin, afraid that Germany would become Soviet Territory. There are many who say that D-Day was very late in coming and that the allies were intentionally holding off to see if Hitler would defeat the USSR, but regardless there were brave men who died there and they did help in ending the war. But the fact is that the battles on the Eastern Front were what constituted the largest military confrontation in history and without which, as many in the US love to say, Europe would be speaking German.

The largest part of the Holocaust took place on the Eastern Front as well, where almost all of the concentration camps and ghettos were located. Almost all of the pogroms, death marches and mass deportations also took place here. The front also saw the most brutal fighting and the largest losses of life due to combat but also because of starvation, exposure, disease, and massacres.

The Great Patriotic War won WWII and resulted in the destruction of the Third Reich and an end to Nazi Germany’s ambition to clear Russia of its people for Lebensraum, in what I would call the Second Holocaust, the elimination of the Slavs. Let us not forget history even as it is being repeated today in what many are now chillingly calling Banderstan, where its government is trying to clear the eastern regions as collective punishment for being against their junta.

How dare the West let Nazis loose in Europe again, in a campaign against Russia! How dare the West blame Russia for anything that has happened in Ukraine when the evidence only shows they are at fault. How dare the West pretend that the Right Sector and Svoboda and the Banderavites under Yarosh are anything other than what they really are, Nazis and fascists. How dare the West claim victory in a war that Russia lost perhaps more than 100 people for every 1 the West lost.

Russia beat the Nazis once, Russia will do so again.

At D-Day Putin Professional, Poroshenko Bows to the Queen

John Robles

President Vladimir Putin must be applauded, hailed and deeply respected for his statesmanship, his unwavering composure, his respect for protocol, his diplomacy and his iron self-control in maintaining his cool professionalism and business-like demeanor when being forced into what must have been a pressure cooker of historic proportions during the D-Day Celebrations in Normandy.

The leader of the largest country in the world clearly outclassed all of the gathered "royalty" in spite of, or perhaps due to, their united attempt to demonize and portray him as the "bad guy", when in fact the elephant in the room is that they are responsible for unleashing nazis in Europe and continue to attempt to legitimize an illegal coup and forces who are engaged in military operations against civilians.

Thus the gathering of heads of state for the 70th Anniversary D-Day Celebrations had an undercurrent of hypocrisy as leaders who backed an armed nazi coup d’état in Ukraine shook hands and patted each other on the back for a victory over Nazism that their countries only played a small part in while at times appearing to snub the leader of the one country that lost more people than all other countries combined and without whom Nazi Germany and the Third Reich would have conquered Europe.

The Big Lie and Alternative Reality

The alternative reality that they are so shamelessly promoting in the West with regard to Ukraine and Russia’s role in the conflict is so far removed from what is actually taking place that one can only come to the conclusion that the West is in fact channeling Goebbels and his big lie theory.

Thankfully the “celebrations” are over as there is no way that anyone could possibly have envied President Vladimir Putin for the position he was placed in, having to smile and be diplomatic with leaders who are actively engaged in sanctions and a campaign against Russia. It is difficult to stay indifferent especially when mindless propaganda rags like the Daily Mail publish headlines like “Putin the pariah…” and outright lies such as “Russia’s aggression towards Crimea” in their summaries of the events.

President Putin Comments on Poroshenko

The Voice of Russia reported that President Vladimir Putin expressed satisfaction with his meetings with western leaders in Deauville, Normandy: "Our meeting began the way a meeting usually begins - we sat down and began to talk about some of the acutest problems, both some international and bilateral problems. But the main subject was the problem of settling the situation in Ukraine," Putin told reporters.

"I cannot but welcome Mr. Poroshenko's position as to the need to immediately stop bloodshed in eastern Ukraine,"Putin told journalists in Deauville when asked to comment on outcomes of this conversation with Poroshenko on Friday.

"He has his plan on this account, but it's better to ask him, not me, what plan this is. He said in a nutshell about this, but it's one thing to say about this here, in France, and another to say it in his own country," President Putin said.

The Reality About Ukraine

Just in case you have not been informed about what is really happened in Ukraine or if you actually believe the lies that the western media is attempting to paint as reality please allow me to give you a quick rundown of what has transpired.

After stopping a US/NATO invasion of Syria, once again initiated by the US based on fabricated evidence, and holding what were assessed to be the best Winter Olympics in history, the US/NATO/EU activated a long planned operation to take over Ukraine.

Operation Ukraine (as I have labelled it) was decades in the planning and was carried out by the CIA and its front USAID with taxpayer funding and additional funds provided by billionaires George Soros and Pierre Omidyar as well as Exxon and Mobil Oil. Through the use of NGOs and endemic fascist neo nazi groups, in particular the Right Sector and followers of brutal nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera, the United States of America was able to activate already existing Color Revolution infrastructure and bring about an armed coup d’état and the ouster of the democratically elected president and government of Ukraine.

US/NATO plans for the installation of first strike military infrastructure directed against Russia in Ukraine were at risk when the elected President of Ukraine Victor Yanukovych was given an ultimatum by the US/NATO/EU to sign an association agreement and effectively cease relations with Russia and he refused.

The evidence shows that US State Department officials at the highest levels with the approval of US President Obama activated Operation Ukraine and chose the lineup of the post-coup government.

The coming to power of radical armed nazi and fascist grouping and armed military formations was not something that the majority of the Ukrainian people supported and the nazi junta’s refusal to listen to the people and their ensuing punitive military operations and pogroms led to the autonomous region of Crimea declaring independence and rejoining Russia as the population refused to live under a fascist junta. The punitive campaign by the junta against all of those opposed to them continued with hundreds being burned alive in Odessa, and dozens of pogroms and countless acts of violence against those opposed to the junta. This led the Donetsk and Lugansk Regions holding referendums on independence with at least 8 other regions being suppressed from doing the same.

Under these conditions the junta held a presidential election in which another oligarch was chosen as President of Ukraine, leaving the Ukrainian people in a worse condition than before the coup.

The elected oligarch Petr Poroshenko, after an election campaign where opponents of the coup were beaten, had their families attacked and threatened, and in the case of outspoken anti-junta candidate Oleg Tsaryov even had their homes burned down and were forced to pull out of the race, before even being inaugurated is guilty of war crimes and violating the Geneva Conventions and the Rome Statutes in his continuing punitive military operations against civilians opposed to the junta in Kiev.

Despite the fact that there have been multiple official requests for a Russian peacekeeping operation to stop the bloodshed and the loss of civilians lives Russia has not intervened militarily in Ukraine but has attempted to facilitate a diplomatic and humanitarian resolution to the crisis.

Russia has now been forced to attempt to deal with the “president elect” as if he was the actual choice of the Ukrainian people, despite the fact that more than half of Ukraine did not even vote in the recent elections.

The Western Version

The West has used what is called DARVO in blaming the entire situation in Ukraine on Russia. (DARVO refers to a reaction that perpetrators of wrong doing, particularly sexual offenders, may display in response to being held accountable for their behavior. The perpetrator or offender may Deny the behavior, Attack the individual doing the confronting, and Reverse the roles of Victim and Offender such that the perpetrator assumes the victim role and turns the true victim into an alleged offender.)

According to the West Russia is an aggressor in Ukraine, there is no humanitarian catastrophe currently taking place as perhaps as many as tens of thousands of refugees flee Ukraine and the punitive military operations directed against entire regions, there is not an illegal military operation being waged against the civilians in the east of Ukraine and the president and the junta are legitimate holders of power.

The West also claims the people of Crimea do not have the right to self- determination because they decided to rejoin Russia. Had they decided to join the EU there is no doubt the legitimacy would be hailed around the world.

A Thousand Words

Having studied photographs and footage of the events at Normandy, because as they say a picture speaks a thousand words, several facts stood out which I feel might be worth mentioning. More than anything and this might fuel conspiracy theories and add fire to those who claim the New World Order is run by London Bankers as well as be an issue for those who claim to be American patriots, was the deference all of those gathered paid to the Queen of England (the person who owns more land than anyone else in the world).

Sure the Queen is a wonderful person and the UK did lose half a million people in WWII, but her central role at the event seemed odd to say the least. Of course no one is allowed to say anything about this but I thought it worth mentioning.

Yes France and the UK and the US all lost approximately 500 thousand men each and these heroes must be remembered but Russia lost what could be more than 28 million and in all fairness it was the Russian leader who should have been the guest of honor. But of course Russia’s “contribution” is always minimized in the West, a fact I have taken issue with many times in the past, and the West has its version of events that must be respected as well, I suppose.

The most stunning photograph for me was one of Poroshenko all but bowing in front of the Queen as he shakes her hand, appearing to have been led to the Queen by Obama, as Obama and all of the heads of state around the Queen looked down or pretended not to notice.

No matter that Poroshenko is engaged in military operations against his own civilians, no matter that he has not even been inaugurated as president, it is clear he is the West’s man in Kiev, and he can do no wrong.

In television footage Poroshenko for his part looked rather uncomfortable during a performance in honor of those who fought and died against nazism, perhaps he was wondering how his Banderavite supporters and Right Sector militias might react back home?

Prince Charles looked overly pleased to see Obama and after his Hitler comments with regard to Russia was completely unapologetic towards President Putin. Prince Charles continuously shot President Putin hard glances as he and his assembled “friends” attempted to stay separate from the Russian leader. I suppose making Hitler references while knowing that the nazis in Ukraine were let loose by your own “friends” might be cause to stay away from the target of your operation.

President Putin behaved in a completely statesman-like manner despite knowing that those amassed around him are bent on surrounding Russia with their missiles and have caused the single largest threat to Russia’s national security in this century.

A President for Peace

We will never know what the leaders actually said to each other but we can be certain that the language was hard and if President Putin is pleased, then we will probably soon see an end to the civil war raging in Ukraine.

While all of the leaders of countries waging war around the world, destabilizing governments and bent on the global expansion of their NATO infrastructure celebrated D-Day President Putin’s quiet dignity and record for fighting for peace and rule of law clearly are what made him stand out.

No amount of demonization or blame will change the fact that Operation Ukraine was a western project and Russia’s security is under attack, as NATO reneges on all deals and continues to expand to the east.

Despite everything President Putin continues to seek a diplomatic solution and continues to attempt to assist the Ukrainian people who are being attacked by their own military. I am certain that without a shot being fired, President Putin will find a solution to the crisis in Ukraine, even though it is not one Russia had any part in bringing about but which Russia is being forced to deal with.

Selling Out Ukraine: Poroshenko Speech; Double Talk, Lies, NATO and the EU

John Robles

US Vice President Joe Biden’s smiling and nodding attendance of the inauguration of Ukrainian President was the final stroke in legitimizing a leader and a government brought about by a US backed and orchestrated coup d’état. Sure Mr. Biden has a lot to smile about: not only has his government successfully destabilized another country for the US corporate military industrial complex but he has secured his youngest son Hunter Biden a million dollar job establishing his family's place in the future of the American elite hierarchal oligarchy. 

To top it all off Biden and his American elitist cronies have more or less successfully managed to demonize Russia for their entire operation.

Western Backers Gloat

Watching a tanned Biden smiling and nodding next to his blonde trophy wife at many of the wrong moments during the inauguration of Washington's latest puppet Petr Poroshenko, it was clear that he was only pretending he understood what he was witnessing. Like gum chewing Obama at Normandy/Mandela, Victoria Nuland posing for photo ops with triumvirate (Yatsenyuk, Tyahnybok and Klitschko) , John Kerry and his Syrian "we knows" and George Bush and his entire two terms, Joe Biden proved to the part of the world that has a real understanding of the events and the history of Ukraine that the Washington political elites are nothing but overpaid empty suits who are completely and totally ignorant of anything and everything beyond their little bubble-like worlds of self-serving lies and manufactured realities.

It would be something to ridicule and laugh about but in their ignorance they are killing millions of people, spreading misery and despair and devastating the planet and destroying the future for all peoples including their own citizens and the scary thing is they do not even understand, let alone care how they are devastating the planet and causing death and misery all over the world.

Poroshenko's Challenges

There is no way that exit poll president Poroshenko will be elected again if the Ukrainian election system returns to something approaching a democratic process therefore he has a very short time to attain his objectives. Number one is ensuring an EU agreement is signed, establishing NATO infrastructure in Ukraine, quelling dissent and attempting to keep eastern regions in Ukraine without federalizing the country (an impossibility), avoiding his own prosecution for war crimes, ensuring the long term survival of the fascists who have attained power and their continued escape from justice and the protection of the oligarchs and their western masters from prosecution and from the people of Ukraine. In short he has to continue to attempt to legitimize the junta and its western masters and keep them from facing justice for crimes ranging from treason to genocide.

Poroshenko’s Inauguration Speech and his Audience: Fascist Nationalists and Western Sponsors

From the outset it is clear that Poroshenko's speech was written not for the Ukrainian people as a whole but for a very narrow audience of foreign sponsors from the US and the EU, for whom he was the most desirable choice (the wise grandfatherly figure) and for all of the national socialist, fascist and nazi forces that allowed his rise to power.

His speech began by quoting Ivan Franko, a famous poet and the co-founder a Ukrainian Radical Party and a nationalist anarchist Mikhail Drahomanov who both played an important role in the development of the Ukrainian ultra-right nationalist movement and who in their day faced persecution for their extremist views.

Denying Ukraine's historic ties to Russia and the history of Kievan Rus Poroshenko stated that: "The return of Ukraine to its natural, European state has been long-awaited by many generations," this is clearly an affront to all Ukrainians who see their historic ties to Russia as being important, but plays to the European aspirations of nationalists, something that has gone hand in hand with Ukrainian nationalism and was most marked with the 1917 revolution and the beginning of the Soviet Union.

Recent History Revised: Legitimizing the Maidan Coup

Poroshenko, in his wording, is attempting to characterize (as has been the narrative but forward by the West)  the western backed coup and the armed neo-nazi nationalist thugs on Maidan who assisted in overthrewing the democratically elected government, as a popular revolt with its cause being the EU agreement. Calling the previous contitutional democratically elected government a "dictatorship" is completey disengenous and in fact and outright lie. While the supposed pretext of the Maidan (manipulated by the West as they unleashed their paid thugs and Right Sector military formations) was the signing of an EU association agreement, any popular discontent that may have existed was due to poor living conditions, unemployment and corruption caused by oligarchs like himself. Saying a the previous government also sought to deprive the Ukrainian people of EU agreement is also not true as President Yanukovich merely said such a move had to be studied further. This theme clearly ignores the wishes of the majority of Ukrainians who wanted to improve relations with Russia and the socio-economic realities on the ground. It also ignores the fact that waht happened on the Maidan was a US organized revolt. Something few in the West watn to address even though the evidence was made clear by the US' own officials.

He calls the disgraceful destruction to property, fires, the killing of police and security forces and the overthrow of a democratically elected president who merely wanted to take a pause to study an EU agreement that was being fast-tracked into law as something dignified.

"Dictatorship that ruled Ukraine in recent years sought to deprive us of this prospect (Europeanization) people rebelled. Victorious Revolution of dignity…."

He further attempted to legitimize Ukraine's nazis by calling them fighters for independence. The enslaving of Ukraine to the EU, NATO, the IMF and the US he apparently equates to "independence." It is quite stunning actually.

"Entire generations of Ukrainian patriots struggled for our independence."

Transferring Blame for Junta’s Punitive War

Apparently Poroshenko is concerned about the fact that he is guilty of war crimes for continuing the junta’s punitive war and collective punishment on the civilians and the people of Donbass. He attempts to portray the war as having originated within Donbass ignoring the reality that it is a punitive operation after the population in the region rose up against the fascist junta and refused to be led by an illegitimate government. That government launched a war on the people while labelling it a terrorist operation. Again he tries to tie it with Europeanization and for some reason believes that he can get away with calling the democratically elected government of Victor Yanukovich “tyranny”. Reality has no meaning for Poroshenko, he can say anything he wants.

"A real war, planned and unleashed in the Ukrainian Donbass, became an obstacle for enormous opportunities that opened for the European modernization of Ukraine after the fall of tyranny."

A Moment of Silence for the Fascists? No Mention of Berkut

If anyone had the illusion that Poroshenko represents all of the Ukrainian people the error of that belief should be clear by his moment of silence for the Right Sector and assorted nationalists who died on the Maidan. He did not mention the brave Berkut officers who were unarmed and beaten to death, he did not mention the possibly over 100 people who were brutally murdered and burned alive in Odessa, he did not mention the victims of pogroms in Mariupol or other locations in Ukraine, nor did he mention those being killed by the Ukrainian army as I am writing this. He mentioned the “heroes” of the Maidan, the assorted Bandera nazi trash that killed and are killing anyone opposed to their fascist power grab. For Poroshenko, his western masters and the fascists in the Rada all of these people mean nothing. As the Right Sector calls them, they are mere "insects."

"Heroes of Nebesna Sotnya died for it. Let us honor the memory of those who died for freedom and independence of Ukraine with a moment of silence."

A Phony Peace Plan

Much hailed by the West and the western media as a sign of his moderate decency, his normalcy set to counter act a growing level of questioning and disgust in the West by those who are actually obtaining access to the real information coming out of Ukraine, Poroshenko's peace plan is being promoted granting the illusion that he wants peace and is not in fact continuing the wholesale killing of the populations in the east of the country.

Poroshenko’s peace plan is a complete farce, even if taken at face value. As the operations are being orchestrated by the West who is manipulating the language no doubt to protect Poroshenko from future prosecution the wording has to be studied carefully and his "offers of piece" looked at critically against the backdrop of what is really happening in the country. It would appear that the "plan" or perhaps it is better to call it the "final solution" is merely a Trojan horse and a license to continue the war against the Ukrainian people.

By stating the word revenge from the start Poroshenko is implying that there is in fact a reason for taking revenge and names that reason the sacrifices being made by the people of Ukraine before his eyes. Of course in his kindness he chooses not to do so. This is a completely obvious manipulation of the language and again a transference of the blame setting up a future defense that he was just moved by the suffering of his people.

Given that many of the people assembled around him were directly involved in the murder of civilians all over Ukraine and were in fact the architects of the punitive military campaign being waged against the people he completely ignores this fact and makes it clear who the “criminals” are, Russian speakers and those opposed to the junta.

"I do not want revenge. Even though there are great sacrifices of the people of Ukraine before my eyes."

Continuing that mien he ignores the fact it is the Maidan thugs and terrorists, the Right Sector, the private fascist militias, Greystone mercenaries and Nazi paramilitaries that are waging a punitive war against the civilian populations in the east. Implying that the people do not have the right to defend themselves against an army gone mad killing its own people, he pulls out the terrorist card. He also follows the Right Sector claim that they took up arms legally.

Here it is important to note the similarities to the US strategy, for example in Afghanistan where the US labelled everyone terrorists and literally attempted to make it illegal for the people of Afghanistan to defend themselves, hauling anyone who resisted to Guantanamo or killing them outright. How anyone is supposed to believe that women and children and pensioners who are Orthodox Christians are terrorists is not important for the West they are operating on Goebbels strategy.

“I strongly urge everyone who illegally took weapons in their hands to lay them down. In response, I first of all guarantee the exemption from criminal responsibility for those who do not have blood of Ukrainian soldiers and civilians on their hands. And those who is not involved in funding terrorism.”

The second point he makes is perhaps the most ridiculous and like the previous transfers blame, demonizes Russia and does not reflect the reality of the situation. He takes no issue with the Greystone mercenaries but claims there are Russian mercenaries in Ukraine. These are the same invisible Russian mercenaries who no one sees because they are secret and who have operate invisibly as ghosts not leaving a single sign of their presence in the country, again a complete and total fabrication by the junta and the US.

Amid Russian calls for a humanitarian corridor to allow women and children and civilians to leave Donbass rather than face the endless bombings and the war of extermination being carried out by the junta and Poroshenko, he makes a mockery of the very idea. Truly disgusting.

"Second, controlled corridor for Russian mercenaries who would like to return home."

If all of this was not bad enough it only gets worse and even though much was made of the fact that he spoke Russian this is just another propaganda ploy. He ignores that the populations of Donetsk and Lugansk held referendums and now are no longer part of Ukraine as they have chosen to determine their own futures, a right being denied to them by the US/NATO and the junta and for which they are being killed, and then tries to say that there are terrorists who have brought the East into a state of war, when it is in fact the forces under his command. The people of Donetsk and Slavyansk are being killed by his army, they are the terrorists, there is no one else. The junta has caused the country to spiral into civil war but Poroshenko ignores this. His nazi brothers can do no wrong, it is the bogeyman of Russia and the poor bombed civilians who are terrorists. Nauseating.

"… Many of you have already felt the "pleasures" of the rule of terrorists. In addition to pillage and abuse of civilians, they led the economy of the region, which has already been in crisis conditions, to the brink of total disaster."

Note From Author

Dear reader I challenge anyone to prove one claim against Russia that is being made by Poroshenko and the junta. Just one. Please show us the evidence. Of course no one can. There is none.

Continuing to Blame Yanukovich while Pretending to be Legitimate

Poroshenko knows he may be seen as an illegitimate leader after the holding of elections with the country in a state of civil war. In order to add credibility to himself he claims the recent unconstitutional elections conducted by the junta in which entire regions of the country did not take part were legitimate. Of course. He then incredibly attempts to blame Russian propaganda for the illegitimacy of the nazi junta. Of course this is made possible by the US and the fact that no one is allowed to print or speak the truth in Ukraine anymore but the disconnect from reality cannot be further. Just like the junta arranged the snipers on the Maidan in an attempt to blame president Yanukovich, they continue to attempt to pass the balme to him even though he is in hiding in Russia. If Poroshenko really wants peace let him stop the punitive war against his own people right now, but of course the war criminal can not, he has been bought and paid for, just another in a series of traitors to Ukraine purchased by the CIA. Yes Joe Biden we see why you are smiling.

"Nationwide presidential elections has put a bold cross on the myth of allegedly illegitimate Kyiv authorities. This myth has been created by Russian propaganda and clan of Yanukovych who betrayed the Donbas and robbed it even more than the whole country. He has been inseparably ruling Donetsk region for 17 years. And now, he is funding terrorists. It is he who shall be totally responsible for political and socio-economic situation of the region. For unemployment, for poverty and for refugees. For killed citizens and for mothers' tears."

False Claim of Decentralization

For Poroshenko decentralization obviously means spreading the junta’s grip away from Kiev. What else could it mean when he still refuses to reinstate Russian as a state language and refuses to discuss federalization? Ignoring that the "right" Ukrainians are killing the "wrong" Ukrainians he continues his "speech". He makes no note of the fact that Russia will continue to be demonized in Ukraine and does not touch upon measures initiated by the junta to prhibit Russian being used in public places in cluding in doctor's offices, but does hint at who is really controlling the scenario: the EU.

"With guarantee of free usage of Russian language in your region. With strong intention not to divide people into right and wrong Ukrainians. With respect for the specifics of regions. For the right of local communities to their peculiarities in the issues of historic memory, pantheon of heroes, religious traditions. With project on creation of jobs in the East of Ukraine elaborated jointly with our partners from the EU before the elections."

Ignoring Atrocities

Clearly a sly wink to the Right Sector here. He dares to mention the patriotism he has seen in Odessa but again fails to mention the over 100 people burned alive and brutally murdered there. Obviously it is the patriotism of the brutal nazi murderers that he is impressed with. That message is clear.

"I am deeply impressed with patriotism of citizens in southern and eastern regions, from Odessa to Kharkov. Peace has not come yet, but today we can confidently say that hard challenges united Ukrainian family. They strengthened us as Ukrainian political nation which is confident in its European choice. Our people has never been so strong."

Preparing the Groundwork for NATO

The following paragraph must have been written with the help of NATO propagandists. If you will recall dear reader once Ukraine joins NATO the country will have to give up at least 8% of its GDP to support NATO. The country will have to spend billions upon billions of dollars on "upgrading" and "interoperability" enhancements and of course the people will have to get used to having foreign troops in their sold out and occupied country.

To make all of this possible there has to be a threat. Poroshenko, like Adolf Hitler is calling for arming, but there is no threat to Ukraine. Even the implied bogeyman of Russia was not mentioned as the Ukrainian people would never believe this. They know who the threat is: Poroshenko and his fascists.

"For peace to become lasting, we must get used to living in constant combat readiness. We have to keep the gunpowder dry. Army and its re-equipment by means of national military-industrial complex is our top priority. Moreover, state orders for military-industrial enterprises will give a boost to reindustrialization of the economy. Those who grudge money for the armed forces feed foreign army. Nobody will protect us until we learn to defend ourselves."

One has to ask the question again: Against whom!?!?! However he then makes it clear and should follow his own advice, as should the brutal Right Sector and Svoboda fascists: those who live by the sword perish by the sword. No secret anymore it is right out there. His goal is enslaving Ukraine to NATO and the EU whether the people want it or not. Yes Nuland, Kerry, Pyatt, McFaul, Rasmussen, Ashton, and Biden, you truly do have a reason to smile. Another country is killing its own people for your worthless dollars and doing your bidding like mindless sheep.

The Budapest Memorandum was the key security arrangement with Russia. OF course that will have to annulled. However there are clauses that would allow it to be used against the junta itself, if anyone cared to study it properly.

"I will use my diplomatic experience to ensure the signature of an international agreement that would replace the Budapest Memorandum. Such agreement must provide direct and reliable guarantees of peace and security - up to military support in case of threat to territorial integrity. Any aggressor on the border of Ukraine must remember the saying from the Gospel: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword."

The New Masters: The EU

More European rhetoric, however decentralization does not apply to Donbass. Again the decentralization means spreading the junta’s control into the regions:

"European democracy for me is the best form of government invented by mankind. It is the European choice which tells us that significant part of powers must be immediately delegated from the center to local governments. Reform on decentralization will begin this year with amendments to the Constitution."

Further Raping of the Economy

Prepare for Oligarch Poroshenko to take complete control of the economy and allow him to hoard the wealth because it needs to be "built up" and of course those funds will go to Europe!

"While economic management falls within the competence of free market or the Government, President as a guarantor of the Constitution is obliged to provide conditions for innovative economy and social justice. Fair distribution of national wealth is an urgent demand of time. But we must increase the national wealth before distributing it. Ukraine has everything to ensure the European prosperity for people."

Yes Ukrainian people do not think, do not choose your own future. Just follow the instructions of the EU. Your president has determined your fate. It is written in the EU agreement, an agreement that will enslave you forever.

"European choice of Ukraine - is the heart of our national ideal. It is a choice made by our ancestors and prophets. And what exactly do we have to do to live freely, to live comfortably, to live in peace and security? It is written in the agreement on political association and free trade area with the EU."


Finally: A Call for Fascists to Unite, the NATO Endgame

The most chilling aspect of the speech came towards the end and should have set off alarm bells around the world. Poroshenko finally vocalizes the real plan of his government and the junta by causally referring to the failures of previous Ukrainian nationalist and fascist movements and speaking sentimentally about such figures as Symon Petliura, the most brutal of the nazi collaborators and what some call the mentor of Stepan Bandera.

Imagine if a German politician mentioned the sad arguments between Adolf Hitler and say Heinrich Held or Benitto Musolini expressing regret at the demise of the Third Reich. For some reason Biden continued to smile.

Was Poroshenko merely playing to his base? Or is he really going to continue the war on the Ukrainian people started by Svoboda and the Right Sector? Apparently he is set on continuing the punitive military operations. There are some that take issue with the fact Poroshenko is Jewish, so why would he mention Symon Petliura who was said to have commanded pogroms against Jews? And if not leading them then at least condoning them having once said: "… it is a pity that pogroms take place, but they uphold the discipline of the army.”

Is that Poroshenko’s belief? Does he believe that the pogroms against the citizens of Donetsk and Lugansk are okay because they “uphold discipline.” Or is his approach towards what the junta are calling “pro-Russian terrorists” more along the lines of Hitler who when asked what to do with Russian Jews stated “als Partisanen auszurotten" (exterminate them as partisans). Is Poroshenko of the belief that the people in the east have to be “exterminated like terrorists”? It would appear so. Their crime? They are against being ruled by fascists and labelled as pro-Russian.

“To implement our ambitious plans, we need not only peace and unity of the country, but also consolidation of all patriotic, pro-Ukrainian and pro-European forces. We must always keep in mind the harsh lessons of the national liberation struggle of the seventeenth-twenties of the last century. At that time, our politicians were not able to unite and resist aggression jointly. Volodymyr Vynnychenko fought against Mykhailo Hrushevskyi, Symon Petliura fought against Pavlo Skoropadskyi. And Nestor Makhno fought against all.”

Fascist neo-Nazi racist parties and grouping in Ukraine like the Right Sector and Svoboda as well as neo-Nazi groups, proponents of anti-Semitism, and various far-right racist groups “worldwide” accuse the most brutal proponents and enablers of the bloodshed in Ukraine, such as Kolomoisky who is trying to establish his own little Fourth Reich, Arseny Yatsenyuk who betrayed and sold his country out for personal gain, Victoria Nuland the key puppet master and Poroshenko of being Jewish. This is may be a key questions for some in Ukraine but in reality what we have are forces working in unison, if not those at the top manipulating radical followers of nazi ideology to bring about the objectives of US/NATO/EU.

It would appear that in reality anti-Semitism and neo-nazism in fact mean nothing when it comes to the goal, dividing the centuries long brotherhood between the Ukrainian and Russian people and placing NATO first strike infrastructure in Ukraine. They are just being paid and the ideological leanings of Yarosh, Poroshenko and the like are most likely completely irrelevant to the cynical geopolitical planners. How will the Right Sector react when they realize the are just pawns?

How are the Jews in Ukraine supposed to believe in leaders who support forces that call for the hanging of Jews and speak sentimentally of anti-Semitic monsters who carried out genocide on the Jewish population of Ukraine? There can be no excuse whatsoever for unleashing nazis once again in Europe. But Biden smiles. 

I started out by saying Biden and Company have no idea what they are doing yet finish with a contradiction and leave you with this thought: perhaps they know exactly what they are doing and are playing all of the opposing forces in Ukraine for all they are worth to bring about their goal? Which might better explain Biden’s smiles and nods, everything is going according to plan in Ukraine, soon NATO/EU/IMF and their assembled forces will have conquered another country and enslaved its economy. Although you might say the 8% of GDP that Ukraine will have to pay NATO is not really that much, they are also taking the energy sector, the economy and everything else they can get their hands on under control.

The US military industrial complex and NATO win once again and the people of Ukraine lose forever in the “fate” that will be signed by Poroshenko as soon as the document is before him. The same document that the legal President of Ukraine Victor Yanukovich wanted to study before it was signed.

The real patriots of Ukraine are the people who want to breathe free, not the junta and the oligarchs who have sold the country down river and are selling Ukrainian sovereignty to the wolves for all eternity. Russia has never “subjugated” Ukraine, Russia has always repsected Ukraine’s Sivereignty and treated Ukraine as a brotherly nation. Anyone who tells you otherwise is misinformed or has another agenda.

As the people in the east continue to flee Ukraine and continue to die at the hands of their own army one might tell the US Vice President: smile Biden, you deserve it. And Victoria Nuland who just visited Odessa but did not think it worth her while to lay flowers at, or visit the House of Unions, where a ceromony was taking place where her Right Sector and pro-Maidan forces killed what are possibly over a hundred innocent civilians who were attempting to take part in their own "democracy" and protesting aginst the junta, you can keep smiling too. How you are still allowed into a country you openly subverted is beyond me.

Russian Gas, NWO and US Energy Mafia

John Robles

Bulgaria’s acquiescence to the US hegemony in stopping work on the South Stream gas pipeline is another sign that the United States is effectively attempting to become the master of Europe if it is not already such. With no political or other socio-economic strings attached Russia was attempting to simply supply European consumers and states with a needed commodity to keep themselves warm and cook their meals. Russia provides Europe with very attractive prices, with no conditions attached, and was attempting to merely do business. This of course is something the US does not want.

Ukraine: Open US Meddling

While the US and its western "partners" are demonizing Russia for the situation in Ukraine, falsely labelling it "Russian aggression", "Russian annexation" and everything else under the sun, while completely failing to provide or present a single tiny little piece of evidence to back up such aggressive war rhetoric (something the US specializes in), Russia and the world have a mountain of evidence to make such claims against the United States of America but continue to allow the world’s most destabilizing country to bash around unhindered.

Revelations that are already part of the public record (none of which have been denied officially by Washington) include the entire spectrum of egregious meddling into the affairs of a sovereign nation. The quantity of what we already know is stunning and what is worse is that this is just the tip of the iceberg.

From Victoria Nuland alone (the leader in revelations) we know enough to tie the US directly into subverting a foreign government, from the December 2013 $5 billion accounting at a speech sponsored by Exxon and Chevron, to her conversation with US Ambassador Pyatt in which they laid out the makeup of the post-coup government in Ukraine, her activities are in complete violation of acceptable international standards, protocols, conventions and laws. But that is not even the most serious US violation.

We know, because of evidence that is available for anyone in the world to see if they simple look for it, that there are at least 400 Greystone/CIA mercenaries in Ukraine reportedly engaged in punitive military operations against civilian targets and assisting in the commission of war crimes.

We know the names of all of the US NGOs and CIA/USAID bodies that helped destabilizing the country, even the funding tree and the chain of command, it is all available on-line, yet nothing is being done about it.

We know the Maidan sniper killings were ordered by members of the junta, even the fact that a silenced M-16 was used and the name of the official who transported it out of the area.

We know that people were burned alive in Odessa or set on fire after they were brutally murdered and even have the testimony of the head of the emergency services to back that up. There is even evidence that the people were gassed with gas that was only available to security services and some say only used by the CIA, but there is no investigation.

We have seen and uncovered evidence that the hand of the CIA is behind these events and other atrocities, the clues are everywhere, including in intercepted e-mails, telephone calls and other communications.

We know that the Right Sector and Crimean Tartar separatists funded and armed by Islamic terrorist elements who were to deliver weapons through Turkey were supposed to destabilize Crimea for NATO intervention and the annexation of Crimea by NATO, yet there is no outcry (this is all well-documented on-line).

We know Kolomoysky, Yarosh, Turchynov, Yatsenyuk and Poroshenko are involved in illegal punitive operations and the commission of war crimes against the Ukrainian people and doing so with the blessing of the United States, yet there is still no outcry.

We know from the former head of the Ukrainian Intelligence Services Alexander Yekimenko that the current head of the SBU, Valentin Nalivaychenko was recruited by the CIA and Alexander Danyluk the leader of the movement "Spilna Right" which controls the country’s Central Election Commission, works for British intelligence, yet they are not being tried for treason.

We also know large portions of the country did not even vote in the recent presidential election; and that there is evidence that Poroshenko was simple placed in power by his foreign benefactors. Yet there is not a word in the western media.

And lastly we know the United States and its agents had a plan to include in the EU Association agreement clauses to transfer the ownership of the Russian Ukrainian gas pipeline to major US oil companies and are planning to place NATO war elements in Ukraine directly on Russia’s border.

These are not secrets, yet there is silence and somehow Russia is at fault. Russia continues to be blamed for everything the US has done in Ukraine and as President Putin recently said: "provide the evidence". No one can, because there is none.

Russian People are Peace-Loving People

Russia continues to deal with the direct threat to its national security that exists in Ukraine through peaceful means and continues to attempt to deal with those in power in an above-board-basis and under accepted international laws and norms. Russia is also the only country which has steadfastly supported and assisted the Ukrainian people as their own government has escalated its war on its own population.

From the first stage of marginalizing the Russian speaking and ethnic Russian population of Ukraine and ignoring their legitimate grievances against policies implemented by the junta until the current bombing and killing of these very populations by the fascists in Kiev, Russia has attempted to assist the people through peaceful means.

The strength of the Russian people, and I believe history is a testament to this, is that they believe in peace, strive for peace and are incredibly patient and slow to anger. Russia and the Slavs have historically never been invaders and attackers but have always risen to any threat to their own integrity or security. Sometimes it might appear too late but when the time comes it always with complete resolve and devastating effects on those who would prod a sleeping bear.

This is in contrast to the United States which seems to be involved in and itching for a new military "adventure" before the previous one even finishes and which to this date, other than Pearl Harbor (and there are those who have presented evidence and believe that Pearl Harbor was allowed to happen and constituted a false flag attack) has waged wars all over the world whilst never being attacked by any of its targets.

In over simplified schoolyard terms the US would be the bully, beating and terrorizing everyone in sight whilst Russia would be the big quiet kid that never bothers anyone but whom the bully avoids. Just take a look at John McCain and compare him to Foreign Minister Lavrov if you have a problem with the allegory.

Statesmen, Diplomats, Businessmen

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union Russia has strived to build a fair and democratic society while having to constantly deal with attempts to break the country up and attempts by the US/CIA to facilitate it breakup and a spiral into anarchy. While USAID and the CIA may have spent 5 million dollars on destabilization/regime change operations in Ukraine that figure was in the $400 billion dollar range for Russia and they failed.

Whilst fighting real threats to its security Russia has managed to somehow keep a free democratic society and not strip the right s of its citizens away or sink into the tyranny of a hyper-security sate. Something few talk about but a feat worthy of admiration.

On the international stage Russia’s diplomats, heads of state, business leaders and others have continuously without fail called for the respect of rule of law, respect for sovereignty and relations based on equal partnerships. This can be seen in every interaction with the international community that Russia has had. Especially in the energy sector where Russia has been more than generous with "partners" such as Ukraine and in which Russia has never set political or other conditions in order to simply do business.

Again in sharp contrast to the US and its perpetual blackmailing, sanctions, strong arming, draconian conditions, spying, market manipulations, regime change operations, endless wars and threats of aggression, conditional loans and its forever meddling into the affairs of every country that has the misfortune of warranting US attention or which has something the US wants.

All of that brings me to where I have been headed with all of this: namely the mafia-like strong arm tactics of the US on the international stage in general, in the energy sector in particular and even more precisely the strong arming of Bulgaria by when-will-he-ever-retire-neocon John McCain.

Russian Gas Pipeline: Energy Independence for Europe

In reality, with all rhetoric and political shadings aside, Russian gas to Europe is the best option for the continent and any pragmatic European leader should understand this. So while the US is terrorizing Europe about "Russian energy dependence" and how Europe must be free to buy its energy supplies from anyone (namely US companies) except from Russia, let’s pause and think for a minute.

Russia has supplied Europe with very affordable quality energy resources since day one, not only affordable but always in a dependable, timely and generous manner (except for the past problems with Ukraine) and has done so without ever seeking to manipulate the internal politics of its customer states or setting political or other conditions on its consumers.

As we have seen with Ukraine Russia has even been generous when payment has not been received, allowing Ukraine for instance, to run up a debt of $3.5 billion or more.

Affordable gas and oil, with no conditions attached and always delivered on-time and within contractual terms, what could be more conducive to energy independence and security?

According to US thinking of people like John McCain, the foreign power destabilizing Europe and causing energy insecurity, all European countries must follow US political whims and abide by the dictates of Washington, not only on whom to befriend, who to do business with, how to run internal economies, how to carry out national defense, who to trade with and not to trade with and finally where to buy energy resources and from whom. And if you do not obey Washington’s dictates, you will be targeted for destabilization and regime change, plain and simple. You do what we say or we will destroy you.

Yes the energy giants and the corporations on Wall Street do not want Europe receiving gas from Russia. They want Europe to buy it from America but there is one problem: America cannot fill Europe’s energy needs.

Some say the energy giants, the corporations and the military industrial/intelligence complex control the US government and attempt to force their will on the people, and this is in fact the case. Why else would a European association agreement for Ukraine include raising the price of gas for consumers to "European levels"? So that the new sellers will make more money it is that plain and simple.

The hypocrisy of McCain arriving in Bulgaria and dictating to the Bulgarian government who to buy gas from and how to run its affairs while talking about energy independence is stunning and almost unbelievable, but it is what we have come to expect from dysfunctional self-serving US foreign policy. Talk of independence, democracy and freedom while delivering subservience, tyranny and enslavement: economically, militarily and politically.

Broken EU: Good for America

Does the US hegemon have the interests of Europe in mind? Of course not, otherwise they would not have destabilized the whole continent by forcing Europe into a mindless confrontation with Russia whilst unleashing nazis on a continent that has already suffered enough.

The very real and present threat to European security, sovereignty, peace, economic well-being and political cohesion is not Russia, who has been merely attempting to do business with its partners, but the United States which has been attempting to establish its hegemony and subjugate the continent by force.

And the record has shown, if the US cannot subjugate and control a country it will destroy it and break it up.

And I leave you with the list of countries where the US has organized coup d’états, supported revolutions, overthrown governments, invaded, annexed, supported groups or forces who overthrew or attempted to overthrow governments or outright executed the leaders. Afghanistan, Albania, Angola, Argentina, Bolivia, Bosnia, Brazil, Cambodia, Chile, China, Colombia, Congo, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Egypt, El Salvador, Germany, Greece, Grenada, Guam, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Korea, Kuwait, Laos, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Macedonia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Oman, Pakistan, Panama, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Russia, Samoa, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Turkey, Ukraine, Uruguay, USSR, Venezuela, Vietnam, Virgin Islands, Yemen, Yugoslavia and Zaire (Congo).

Any country which is visited by McCain, please take heed, hopefully yours won’t be next.

Attack on Russian Embassy in Kiev Provocation to War

John Robles

The 1961 Vienna Conventions on Consular Relations which entered into force on April 24 1964 and have hence been supplemented have been the guiding rules. The preeminent document governing the working of diplomatic missions around the world and clearly laying out the framework for international relations since its inception. The Vienna Conventions have proven to be one of the most respected and successful international documents in history respected and followed even during times of war. Therefore the attack on the Russian Embassy in Kiev, Ukraine is a crime of international proportion which must be condemned by the entire international community.

Ukraine has become a rogue nation acting with complete and total impunity since the armed coup in February and the installation by the western backed junta of a government made up of nazi sympathizers pretending to represent the will of the Ukrainian people while using violent brute force to silence and literally eliminate anyone opposed to their reign of terror. The previous statement is sadly not an exaggeration of the facts but an understatement as to the illegality and egregious conduct of the regime.

"Puppet" Poroshenko's Escalation

After the recent presidential election conducted by the junta which saw billionaire oligarch Petr Poroshenko placed in the office of president, it had been hoped that the government would cease its punitive military operations against the civilian population in the east and across Ukraine. However Poroshenko, who Rossiya Segodnya head Dmitry Kiselyov called a "helpless puppet" on his weekly program Vesti, has continued and even escalated the punitive war on civilians. Immediately after his inauguration the Ukrainian forces began employing heavier weapons, illegal munitions and all of the resources at their disposal including fighter aircraft.

Among the banned munitions being employed against civilian targets are cluster bombs and white phosphorous. The military is literally wiping entire villages off the face of the earth and to add to the growing list of war crimes they have refused to allow the innocent civilian population to exit the zone of conflict. With their public statements that they are engaged in a war to "clear the east" there can be absolutely no doubt that the junta is engaged in clear and undeniable genocide against the people of the east and those opposed to their illegal grab on power.

Western Silence, Collusion and War by Proxy

Despite the growing list of war crimes and evidence that the US is directly responsible for bringing nazis to power in Ukraine, the West continues to support the junta. This is understandable as the nazi junta is fighting the war against Russia that the US/NATO cannot carry out on their own. No matter what the junta does, from slaughtering innocent unarmed protestors in Odessa, to bombing hospitals with illegal munitions and now to attacking the untouchable territory of a diplomatic mission, the West continues to support the monsters in Kiev thus facilitating and leading to the junta’s belief in their own impunity.

The West has found like-minded brethren in Ukraine’s nazis, with their global illegality being mirrored in the microcosm that is Ukraine. From muffling the media, to torture, to punitive war, to oligarchs bought and paid for and placed in power, to demonization of Russia, to "regime change" and destabilization, everything that we are seeing in Ukraine has been standard operating procedure for the US around the world.

There has been no outcry, there has been no condemnation, there are no international organizations calling for the sanctity of the lives of the civilians in the east to be respected and the latest attack on the Russian diplomatic mission in Kiev and the lack of response by the West shows not only their silent collusion but their open support for the crimes of the junta.

Also in a stunning public appearance the head of the OSCE Lamberto Zannier met with refugees from Ukraine and began his speech by telling the gathered refuges who has lost everything and been targeted for extermination by the junta and the new president that Ukrainian President Poroshenko wanted to "bring the country into the light" or flourish and prosper. Telling this to people who were targeted in an operation to "clear the east" was unbelievable but the OSCE head did add that those guilty of committing crimes should be punished.

Attack on Embassy

On Saturday the Russian Embassy in Kiev was subject to a violent attack organized by one of the main architects of the Maidan Igor Kolomoisky and members of his Azov Battalion, who the US continues to support.

Initial reports and witness statements testify to the fact that the attack on the Russian Embassy was carefully planned and that the goal of the egregious attack on the diplomatic mission was to seize the building and shed the blood of Russian diplomats. Russian Ambassador to Ukraine Mikhail Zurabov believes the attack was thoroughly planned.

The tactics and the attempted storming of the embassy are the exact tactics that the Right Sector and Kolomoisky’s thugs used to overthrown the legitimate government of Ukraine with one very important exception: an attack on an embassy is an attack on the sovereign territory of the country whose embassy is attacked. The junta in effect attacked the Russian Federation and historically such an attack has the potential for being considered a declaration of war.

The normal minimal reaction by the attacked country to such an outrageous attack is filing an official complaint with the country hosting the embassy (which is obligated by the Vienna Conventions to protect the territory of embassies from attack) and with the United Nations. Russia has for its part filed a draft resolution condemning the attack with the UN Security Council but it was blocked by the US, the UK and France. This unprecedented condoning of an attack on a diplomatic mission is almost unprecedented.

For hours as up to a thousand people (at one point) engaged in overturning cars, smashing out all of the windows in the building and defacing the embassy compound with swastikas, the police who initially formed a cordon around the building but then were instructed to leave and not interfere, did absolutely nothing to stop the attack.

If all that is not bad enough the fact that Interior Minister Arsen Avakov and Foreign Minister Andrey Deshchytsia joined the crowd attacking the embassy and with the case of the foreign minister launched into an expletive filled attack on Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Russian Federation to the cheers of the crowd, shows that the attack on the embassy was given the green light (if not in fact ordered) by the junta and the "government" at the highest level.

It is important to note that the United Kingdom also wanted to storm an embassy not long ago to get its hands on poor Julian Assange who continues to be trapped in London, but the UK was forced to abide by the Vienna Conventions for fear of attacks worldwide on its own missions. The Kiev junta apparently does not care at all about its diplomatic missions around the world, with the same disregard that it approaches all aspects of international law, even rules prohibiting the use of forbidden munitions, and once again has underlined its own illegitimacy.

Provoking War

Since day one the junta has been provoking war with Russia. By demonizing and killing ethnic Russians and Russian speakers, by continuously detaining and possible torturing Russian journalists, by sending tanks into Russian territory, by attacking a Russian Diplomatic Mission and by continuous bellicose rhetoric and undiplomatic conduct, the junta is working overtime to fulfil the will of their western masters.

The US/NATO want a pretext for war and to place their military elements in the country. They also want to exploit Ukraine’s resources and their end goal is isolating Russia and diminishing any influence Russia might have in Europe.

Russia continues to patiently try to deal with the all-out attack by the West through diplomatic and peaceful means but as we have seen with the gas issue, as Gazprom has now finally forced the deadbeat regime to pay in advance for their gas, even though they have a debt of $4,458,000,000.00, which the junta, in my opinion, has no intention of paying.

Russia wants peace but even a peaceful sleeping bear will attack if you provoke it long enough. And that is apparently what the White House officials and CIA/NATO are trying to do as Operation Ukraine continues.

For those who believe in the democracy and freedom rhetoric of the United States Government with regard to Ukraine and the continuing demonization of Russia, what we have seen since 9/11 is a super power run amuck all over the world. I would encourage all of you subjected to the media censorship in the West to seek out the truth about what has occurred in Ukraine. I would encourage you all to protest against those in your government who would fund nazis and look the other way as peaceful civilians are being slaughtered for the crimes of being "pro-Russian" or wanting the right to self-determination or being against the illegal coup government.

The US/NATO war machine depends on your funding and your hard earned taxed income to exist, yet what they are doing in Ukraine and in many other places around the world are crimes against all of humanity. You can stop them if you want.

The United States and NATO are facilitating genocide against Russians in Ukraine and they have unleashed nazis in Europe (things which should have been stopped long ago) and they are continuing to provoke Russia in what may lead to World War III.

Only Russians Can Save Russians in Ukraine Steven Gajich, Political Analyst

Download audio file

The conflict in Ukraine started by the illegal junta government and nazi forces which continue to commit horrendous crimes with impunity because they have the full backing of their paymasters across the sea, has destabilized Europe and the world as the US continues to see its hegemony and influence decline. The unilateral and irrational attempt to isolate Russia by the US and prevent Russia from being an influential power is being facilitated by NATO which continues to make demands on its member countries which are damaging to their economies and security.

In reality the South Stream gas pipeline is beneficial to European countries and their economies yet the waning hegemon from across the sea insists on attempting to divide Russia from it natural role in Europe, a continent it is the largest part of. The West is promoting cultural racism in Ukraine and has unleashed nazis in Europe to fulfill its goals. The conflict being forced against Russia may herald in a new world order, one which will see Russia taking its proper role which is exactly what the US wants to prevent.

Stevan Gajić from the Institute for European Studies in Belgrade Serbia commented on these issues and more.

Stevan Gagic

Hello this is John Robles, I’m speaking with Mr. Stevan Gajić. He is with the Institute for European Studies in Belgrade, Serbia.

Robles: Hello, Sir. How are you this evening?

Gajić: Hello, great.

Robles: My first question is regarding US influence in Europe and in Serbia, in particular with relation to the South Stream Gas Pipeline. How likely do you think Europe is going to continue following instructions by the US in energy policy and in other areas?

Gajić: What we have learned after release of WikiLeaks and especially Edward Snowden is that the US has its “agents of influence” all over the world and the job of these people is to follow the interests of the US, whether they work in particular countries for the governments, or for the non-governmental sector. So, the influence of the US on the specific state policies in particular countries is only likely to increase in the future.

Russia and China are currently struggling for the multipolar world. We still live in Pax Americana that is falling apart but after the tectonic changes, especially in the field of economy, after the agreement that was recently signed between Russia and China, I think, the US is likely to be more and more nervous and the policies influencing economies and politics in particular countries and in all of Europe and across the world is only likely to increase.

Robles: It seems like the hegemon is desperate, they are lashing out, they are trying anything, they are doing things that, really, are irresponsible, I think, not to mention illegal, etc.

Gajić: The US have recognized that their power is gradually decreasing, the only logical solution from that point of view is to create chaos in order to buy more time, so that there won’t be other power or the cluster of powers that would fill in, the vacuum of power that is currently appearing.

Recently we have the statement made by Mr. Rasmussen of NATO who said that the Euro-Atlantic commitment is actually more important than economic interests of particular countries and he was pressuring Germany, more than any other country, which is really reluctant to impose serious sanctions on Russia.

Robles: You would agree than NATO is more interested in propagating itself than in the well-being of the citizens of the countries who are unfortunate to be members of it?

Gajić: Absolutely. For the US as the main external creator of the EU, this security umbrella was always much more important and it still is today. So from the logic of NATO this does make sense, because NATO is before anything else, following the interests of the US.

It is absolutely not in Germany’s interests to impose sanctions against Russia, it is not in their economic interests, even more, the civil war that is going on in Ukraine today but there are obligations that they have as members of NATO and we should not disregard the fact that the biggest US military base in Europe is in Germany, which of course certainly influences its internal and foreign policy.

Robles: The European countries and NATO member countries who already gave 8% of their GDPs to NATO, they are now being asked to sacrifice economically, socio-politically and culturally in many different ways just for the benefit of the military machine, which is NATO and that is giving up a large percent of each country’s sovereignty and ignoring the well-being of the citizens of each country.

Gajić: Absolutely. And the US as the only modern sovereign state in the West is providing the security umbrella. So now that the economy is not doing well, the US is asking for EU/NATO members to sacrifice their economies in order to protect the whole umbrella.

So, regarding pipelines it is in Germany’s and in Serbia’s and in Bulgaria’s interests for the South Stream to be built. It completely makes sense when it comes to economy. However, this would almost completely disconnect the Euro-Atlantic connection.

So, the European Union and the countries through which the pipeline runs, will economically be, more and more independent from the US but, which would benefit their economies but it wouldn’t benefit the political architecture of the Euro-Atlantic community.

Robles: You mentioned, a few minutes ago the Pax Americana and you mentioned European countries giving up their sovereignty for peace. Would you agree that, that “peace” is the Pax Americana because NATO is not really creating much peace for the EU with the operations in Afghanistan and… ?

Gajić: Well, the US and NATO were exporting chaos in order to bring peace into their own community. So, this system functioned for a good while but now that other countries showed up, or “reappeared”, as powerful regional and in perspective, global player, the system is not functioning anymore. Can you imagine the world without dollar? And not today but..

Robles: I could and I think it will be a pretty good one after the initial collapse. I’m sorry...

Gajić: Probably, probably but not from everybody’s prospective.

I mean, if the gas pipeline between Russia and China really starts working and if the exchange as they agreed is going to be Russia Rouble and the Chinese Yuan, then the dollar will lose its importance as the world currency. And this means that the standards of the average American will decrease and this automatically means social problems within the US that are already tense.

Robles: I don’t think they can get much worse. People are in really bad situation right now as it is.


Robles: Also, I’d like you to clarify, or to expand or to give your opinion on: you talked about security for Europe, I have to ask this big question; against whom?

First we had the Boogeyman of Iran, now we have this “evil Russian aggression”, which is… Russia is not aggressing against anyone, it is not expanding, it was trying to do business.

Gajić: Well, from the eyes of the American neo-cons and extreme liberal politicians, Russia was always the Boogeyman, for the very fact it holds most of the world resources, and it was openly said by Madeleine Albright a couple of years ago, it is not just for Russia to have 40% of world resources, things are as simple as that.

Robles: But it is Russia’s land, it is Russian territory!.

Gajić: It is Russian territory but in post-modern globalized world there shouldn’t be any independent countries, there shouldn’t be any sovereign states.

Robles: So if you have $5,000 in your pocket, and I have $2, I should say, “You don’t have the right to have that money. You should give half of it to me.”

Gajić: Well, it is life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, I think the pursuit of happiness has become the primary rights in the eyes of some.

I just wanted to say one thing, in 1999 the Potsdam World Order completely collapsed, why is that? The US supported a very small, in global sense, insignificant Albanian separatism within the sovereign country of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.

So without the permission of the UN Security Council, Yugoslavia was bombed and subsequently part of its territory was occupied. What this means is that we had a precedent in international law.

After that, Russia recognized two separatist provinces within Georgia, Abkhazia and South Ossetia and the western powers used exactly the same argument that Yugoslavia used, the argument of the international law.

The fact is we don’t have international law.

Robles: Right. I would rephrase that a little bit if I were you, I would say that it was a precedent in “international lawlessness” because everything that happened in Yugoslavia was factually and technically illegal, it was an aggressive invasion, they destroyed a country. But they got away with this.

Gajić: But the thing is that when that was happening we lived in Fukuyama’s “End of History”. We lived in a world that was completely dominated by the US. This thing changed but the law, the legal consequences remained. And that is the big problem.

The problem is that when you look at the history; usually global orders were created after huge conflicts. The Westphalian Peace was created after the biggest religious struggle in Germany, the Versailles order was created after WWI, and the Potsdam order was created after WWII.

So far, history has taught us that the world orders are created after huge conflicts. So, now we are living in the vacuum of the international order and we live in a Hobbesian world where every state or cluster of states is for itself.

So countries behave like, to use this analogy, like pact of animals and there is literally a struggle for resources that is completely blunt and open. Everything is at stake so this is the logic of war.


Gajić: In the logic of peace, economy is more important. But Rasmussen’s statement counts on the logical of war and it actually makes sense for him and for people sharing his opinion to say so, because if we talk about South Stream, because… the construction of the South Stream relies more on the outcome of the battle of Slavyansk and Mariupol and Damascus, than on the Bulgarian or Serbian politicians’ decisions.

It sounds maybe strange but it is like that. If Russia loses face in Ukraine, I think that Russia’s economic ventures, such as gas pipeline as well as South Stream are under a huge question mark.

Robles: How do you see Ukraine and Syria tied into this, again, if you could explain in more detail?

Gajić: Everything is about credibility of the state.

In 2013 Russia gained a lot of credibility, especially in handling the Syrian crisis. In the beginning of 2014 also seemed very good for Russia, especially after the elegant reuniting with Crimea.

So the stakes for Russia are huge, if it goes into Ukraine which it has already obliged itself to and it has legal permission from the Duma to do so…

Robles: I think maybe it should.

Gajić: I agree with you. I think that the genocide that is going on currently in south east of Ukraine and in other places where the cameras are, in Slavyansk and in Mariupol and Donetsk and Lugansk. What is happening with people who are discontent in Odessa and in Khrakov? We don’t know. We don’t see any of those lately since the beginning of the Ukrainian army operation.

Robles: That is scary because we don’t know what is happening. I believe they have been wiped out.

Gajić: Yes, to rely on the justice of international community and to think that something will change by itself is a lost cause!

So Russia will either step in and protect its population or it will lose face in the international arena which is very bad position to be in, because I think that then, not only its economic contracts are under question but also the situation in the Middle East.

Robles: I see the end game in Ukraine is not going the US’ way. And I don’t want to help them out at all, but they funded fundamental Islamic lunatics and it backfired. Why do they keep doing the same thing again? Now it’s Nazis in Ukraine.

Gajić: This really is a schizophrenic situation because the US is supporting groups like Jabhat al Nusra in Syria and the Army of Levant and this seems that it went out of control.

So, the logic is that any ally is good as long as it is against Russia. We are now not talking about rational politics anymore. We are talking really about irrational moves, which could backfire.

Robles: Since the breakup of the Soviet Union I would say Russia was never an enemy to the US, Russia has always attempted to work diplomatically and above-board with the US but they insist, no matter what, on making Russia the enemy and I believe that this is so that they can expand their military.

Gajić: It is really hard to be the friend of the US because the demands are only increasing.

For instance, Serbia’s EU integration process. As Serbia was delivering more and more demands, which were just increasing and it came to the point of complete absurdity.

The US had a problem of having absolute power and with absolute power came absolute position of dominance. Now when it is losing it, they don’t know how to really handle the situation, so their behavior in the international arena starts seeming quite irrational.

Robles: Okay, Stevan, thank you very much. Anything big, you want to finish up with?

Gajić: I just want to say that only Russians can save Russians in Ukraine, this so-called anti-terrorist operation won’t stop by itself because there are foreign hands that are involved in it, I don’t see that they want anything less than more escalation.

If the conflict ends it will be ended by the intervention of Moscow.

There is also another component, a cultural racism and Orientalism. People who connect themselves with Maidan and values of Maidan, whatever they are, they like to see the south east of Ukraine as backward, as anti-modern and so on and I think that this is a very dangerous field.

You know, this is something that we have seen almost in all conflicts but especially in non-Western hemisphere where certain parts of society wants to put themselves above others by trying to be more “Western” in the cultural sense and by that, you know, this is cultural racism. That is one of the components of the Ukrainian conflict that non-Russian speakers are not aware of.

Robles: Yes, exactly. Thank you. I appreciate it.

Gajić: Thank you, thanks for calling me.

You were listening to an interview with Stevan Gajić. He is with the Institute of the European Studies in Belgrade, Serbia. Thank you very much for listening and as always I wish you the best wherever you may be.

Demonizing Russia: Silent Collusion

John Robles

Part of the demonization that has allowed the Kiev junta to wage a war against ethnic Russians and the Russian speaking population in Ukraine is a very carefully planned and intense campaign of demonization and dehumanization. Another aspect is the silence and non-coverage in the western media of war crimes and atrocities being committed against innocent civilians. This was no more evident than in Victoria Nuland's recent visit to Odessa at a time when there was a ceremony being held for the victims who died at the House of Unions. While Nuland paid US officials paid respects to those who died on the Maidan she ignored the event and reportedly met with Kolomoisky or his representatives.

The Language of Silent Collusion in the Media

With the unprecedented media campaign being waged by the West in support of the junta, with White House spokes tool Psaki, who confuses Iran and Iraq, uses phrases she does not understand like "carousel" and denied that she had any information that two Russian reporters were killed, anyone who attempts to ignore or chooses not to report the reality of what is happening in Ukraine is guilty of silent collusion.

It is this silent collusion that allowed the neo-nazi lunatics to come to power in Ukraine in the first place and this silent collusion serves the interests of fascist groups in any country when they begin to gain power. They may start by demonizing foreigners and immigrants, and this is allowed get by unchallenged, and once such a precedent is set they gain force, as they did in Ukraine. So it is the responsibility of any media outlet or journalist to document the truth, and not flee from it to please an audience. The responsibility of a journalist is to get the truth to the audience, not pander to it. The tactic of psychological transference, where the victim becomes the aggressor is being used in Ukraine and I have written about this before. This goes with the demonization and dehumanization and serves to remove all blame from the true aggressor.

Call it what it is

The western-backed Ukrainian government which is trying to claim it is legitimate and represents western and European values is engaged in a punitive war of genocide against ethnic Russians and anyone opposed to it. The regime is also engaged in a war against the media and any reporter, including writers like myself, who dare to present the truth are targets and a danger to the nazi junta whose greatest enemy is the truth. They have proven this. They will kill anyone who publishes the truth or attempts to report the truth. Is this what they mean by European and "Western Values"?

If we look at the price that Julian Assange has had to pay for telling the truth and the war being waged on "hackers", bloggers, reporters, sources, whistle blowers and even anyone who simply links to content the US Government does not approve of, then perhaps Nuland is right in supporters the nazis in Ukraine? Perhaps as the United States was founded on genocide the real western value is genocide? That would explain why Nuland still has her job and the American media are marching lock step with the narrative, which is enabling genocide.

Two honorable young men, with families and friends and a group of innocent refugees were killed by some lunatic peering through the sights of an artillery weapon. The junta has forbidden refugees from fleeing the conflict zone as it continues to eradicate them. And the "West" is silent as the US continues to sugar coat genocide, which has become, as seems to be the case, official US policy.

Demonizing Russia: Formula for Extermination

John Robles

How is it that in our age of information technologies, the internet and lightning fast communications that a nazi junta has been allowed not only to come to power but has been allowed to legitimize itself and then engage in a war to (in their own words) clear out half of the country of those who are opposed to them?

The answer to the question I have posed is quite simple really and the formula works for almost every state and grouping. It begins with nationalism or patriotism or some other reason why a certain policy or group is better than the rest. This usually proceeds by the enabling of those who would promote hate or racist polices and even in the extreme, genocide. Finally when the polices or campaigns are begun they are allowed to grow and flourish by quiet or passive collusion (perhaps out of fear of reprisal or loss of social status) and by the subtle or outright demonization of the target group. As the campaign grows to the point where to all thinking people there is something obviously wrong (this may occur at any time during the process) then the campaign to terrorize or demonize or outright eradicate those who would express dissent, the press, the academic community or even religious bodies. Finally there is institutionalized denial and historical revisionism, either by rewriting the history or by omission.

From the genocide of the American Indians, to the genocide of the Jews, the Serbs, the Tutsis and the Slavs, these elements have always existed. In order to facilitate the genocide of the Indians they were classified as animals, the Jews as genetically inferior and sly manipulators and architects of control and repression and for the Slavs ignorant or godless invaders and aggressors, not exactly in that order and not only limited to those areas, but you get the idea.

Determining the Target, Unleashing the Tool

Why would Ukrainians want to commit genocide on their fellow Ukrainians? In reality few of them would, which is where the foreign hands come in and this is the dirtiest part of the situation in Ukraine and one which no one wants to talk about. The US wants NATO in Ukraine and they want to fulfill their other objectives which include turning Ukraine against Russia. Politically and with the use of billions of dollars turning Ukrainians against Russia did not work out so well. Organizing multiple "color revolutions" and installing puppet governments also did not work out, so the need arose to eliminate the pro-Russian part of the population. Since this was the majority and the Russian speaking part of the population was immune from western manipulation, elimination was the only solution. With that in mind backing and unleashing Ukrainian nationalists was the natural choice. Who else?

Demonization and Dehumanization: the Language of Death

What normal Ukrainian man, enlisted in the army and sworn to uphold his constitution and protect his country and his people would kill his own women and children? None. Therefore the targets have to be demonized and more importantly dehumanized.

Operation Ukraine has a component that non-Russian speakers are not very aware about, Stevan Gajich pointed out to me in an interview recently. This component is one that I also elaborated on with journalist Sergey Bolous who recently spent over a month in Slavyansk Ukraine and other areas of Donbas where the junta is engaged in punitive military operations. This component is one which has allowed the nazi junta to demonize a large segment of the population to the point where there are thousands who are convinced that it is okay to literally exterminate them.

The Kiev junta with the advice of Soros, US NGOs and the entire US propaganda, war and intelligence machine set about demonizing those who would support Ukraine's historic affinity for Russia. The US wants Ukraine in its orbit and will do anything to bring that about, including genocide. Genocide is not a problem for America. It is a country founded on it and dependent on it for its continued existence. Just ask an American Indian.

Official Kiev (which officially we have to call them), in other words, the junta is currently engaged in what the Russian government and media are calling a punitive war against the people in the eastern part of Ukraine. More and more evidence, including statements by the junta regarding "clearing the regions", is pointing to it being in fact a scorched-earth genocide of the entire populations in the east, again semantics.

This war is being facilitated by officially calling and labelling everyone in these regions as terrorists, terrorist supporters and enablers and separatists. Just like the US justified invading Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and the attempt on Iran and extinguishing millions of lives, this label is working for the Ukrainian army, even though it has nothing to do with reality. Officially that is the label, unofficially it is worse. Just like the US habituated US racists to calling Muslims ragheads, sand niggers and the like and portraying them as backward, uncivilized and worst of all "non-Western" Ukraine has also waged a campaign of dehumanization.

While the Maidan Defense Forces and Right Sector were burning people alive in Odessa the crowd was chanting "burn, Colorado, burn" and "glory to Ukrainian patriots". Although primitive the labels employed by Ukraine's murderous nationalists are effective. According to journalist Sergey Belous Colorado is a reference to the Colorado Potato Beetle and this phrase is used by many public speakers in the media and those wishing to demonize those in the east. The children of the Ukrainians who are against the junta are called Colorado larvae which actually look like worms. Of course it is psychologically possible or easy for the lunatics doing the bidding to brutally kill a woman or child if you can plant in their minds that they are mere insects or worms.

The term Colorado comes from the colors of the St. George's Ribbon which the Svoboda Party wants outlawed. The St. George's Ribbon symbolizes Russia's historic victory over nazi Germany. As Svoboda sees itself as a nazi party it members see the defeat of Nazi Germany as a day of shame. Even Victory Day was changed in very carefully coded language by the Ukrainian authorities to a day of "memory of the victims" rather than a celebration of the victors, in effect turning the holiday into one where the "victims", the Banderavites and the nazis, are remembered.

In general those wishing federalization or simply against the regime are called insects. There are other words such as Rashisty and a combination of Putin and Hitler which attempt to paint the pro-federalization Ukrainians as somehow being nazis. This is clearly for the western audience as well. Rashisty is a combination of natsisty (nazist) and Russian.

In order to facilitate eradicating the people in the east the junta has also come to calling the residents of these regions "okupanty" or occupiers. How one can "occupy" one's own country is beyond me but that is the logic here. This demonization goes hand in hand with the demonization of Russia as well which anyone can see on any western media outlet.

Although the populations in the east and in particular Lugansk and Donetsk which held referendums, had initially merely wanted federalization as they saw this as the only way to have their language and religion respected, they were immediately labelled as separatists by the junta. It is important to note that the junta and their neo-Nazi paramilitaries, now organized as the "National Guard" (a name which gives them credibility), are not only engaged in an illegal (Geneva Conventions) campaign of collective retribution and "clearing" operation but have also regularly targeted not only schools and hospitals but churches. The destruction of churches and the killing of journalists are almost unprecedented events in world history, in fact I do not recall any regular "army" which literally bombed and targeted churches. Other than CIA created Al-Qaeda and the western-backed Islamic lunatics in Syria no other "force" in recent history has targeted churches.

Back to the language. Another term being used is Moskal(i) a derogatory for (Muscovite), Sovki and Sovok (derogatory terms which plays on the word Soviet and the Russian word for dustpan "sovok").

All of the terms and the stirring of nationalist sentiment while targeting Russia and ethnic Russians and others whom the regime does not find to their liking is simply a common trick used by all nationalist/fascist movements to justify what normal people know is wrong.

Kiev Continues to Guarantee its Own Demise

John Robles

Ukraine continues to aggressively provoke Russia with acts that could be interpreted as being tantamount to declarations of war. The latest aggression by Kiev against Russia is an attack by the Ukrainian army on a customs checkpoint at Novoshakhtinsk, Russia in the southern Rostov region on the Russian-Ukrainian border. The unprovoked shelling by the Ukrainian military has caused the partial destruction of the customs checkpoint and the serious injury of at least one Russian customs officer.

Russian Cool Heads

President Vladimir Putin, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu, Federation Chairwoman Valentina Matviyenko and other political and governmental leaders continue to lead to lead Russia’s diplomatic efforts with truly heroic patience and diplomacy as the US continues to use Ukraine in its cowardly proxy war against Russia.

In light of the fact that, as the head of Rossiya Segodnya said not long, Russia is a country that can turn the United States itself into nuclear ash, Russia’s reactions towards Ukraine have been remarkably reserved despite the continued blatant criminal attacks on its territory, the outright murder of its people and the escalating threat to its national security by the weak and schizophrenic nazi junta.

The Russian bear has long come out of hibernation and is ready to strike but why hasn’t it? "Is it weak?" Nuland might ask. "We will get back to you later on that," Psaki might say. Not to give the US and its junta any kind of intelligence which it is certainly lacking in but the answer to that is quite simple.

The Ukrainian Junta and Its Human Shield

Given that the majority of the population in the eastern parts of Ukraine are ethnic Russians or Russian speaking individuals and are clearly pro-Russian, which in case some in the West did not know is not a crime, the junta is attempting to keep the people in the east from fleeing and hence not opening a humanitarian corridor as they are literally engaged in genocide in their operation to clear the region.

Keeping the people there also serves the junta’s "National Guard" by giving them a cowardly tactical advantage, they know Russia will not launch a retaliatory strike if civilians risk being caught in the crossfire. Thus the fascists are using the civilian population as human shields and rather than declaring war and openly challenging Russia, they are fighting a cowards war like the worst form of scum and hiding behind the skirts of women and in the shadows of children.

A Warning to the Junta

The criminal Kolomoisky (who today stated that he will never give up his power and will make sure that all of the "separatists" are liquidated) and the Svoboda, Right Sector and Banderavite sympathizers are running around with murderous glee in their bloodlust and feeling invincible (due to the impunity they feel they have because they are sure their western masters will protect them) but like all madmen who suffer the debilitating disadvantage of being insane do not realize that they have already lost.

So as they continue to clear Donbass by eradicating the population and as the flow of women and children and innocent civilians comes closer to being completed their days are exponentially coming closer to an end.

I might be wrong and I do not want to give away any military advantage, but it seems clear, given the urban nature of the warfare in Ukraine and the ambiguous nature of the "enemy", once Ukraine is cleared of all ethnic Russians, Jews, Roma and other "mud" people, the nazis may claim victory for a brief moment, but once they have neatly and nicely consolidated themselves in a clear goose stepping little group, they will make a very nice little target to simply wipe off the face of the earth forever and be done with. I may be extreme in my postulated "final solution" but that is what they are attempting to do the people in the east and one who lives by the sword will eventually fall on the same sword he has shed innocent blood with, so such an end would be just and deserved.


Given the attack and the continuing punitive operation against the civilians in the east the Kremlin’s statement regarding Poroshenko’s "temporary cessation of hostilities" is as follows: the statement, "…. accidentally or deliberately has been made against the background of shelling Russian territory near the checkpoint "Dolzhansky" that led to the destruction of the building, as well as, most importantly, to the injury of a Russian customs officer."

"In this regard, the Russian side is waiting for an explanation and an apology."

"In this situation, the Russian side should carefully consider the text of the corresponding decision of the President of Ukraine and the procedure for its implementation."

"The primary analysis, unfortunately, shows that this is not an invitation to peace and negotiations, but an ultimatum to militias in the south-east of Ukraine to surrender."

Russian Foreign Ministry

The Russian Foreign ministry stated the following: "The Russian side expresses its strong protest against this aggressive action. Russian is demanding from Kiev and urgent and prompt investigation of all the circumstances of the crime, which violates basic norms and principles of international law."

"It is a direct provocation, which aims to prevent the implementation of the Geneva agreements on a de-escalation of internal Ukrainian conflict."

"How can this be related to today’s announcement by the Kiev authorities to a cessation of hostilities?"


For geopolitical specialists and observers it may seem that Ukraine, after being taken over by a US backed coup, is showing all of the trademark behavior of its US master albeit on an hyper drive scale: a literal war on journalism, criminal impunity in waging war and taking over the government, a complete disregard for the well-being of the people, a government with complete and total power and an irrational over-powering hatred towards Russia, misinformation and complete media control, the imprisonment of the opposition, psychotic transference blaming the victim for its own crimes and the use of illegal murderous force to eliminate enemies which it calls terrorists.

So as the junta in Ukraine continues to increase its acts of aggression against Russia, killing Russian reporters, murdering ethnic Russians, attacking Russian embassies, stealing Russian resources, driving tanks onto Russian territory and now literally attacking Russian territory, there can be no doubt that the so called authorities in Kiev are doing one thing and one thing only: with each horrific act they are pounding one more long inextricable nail into their own coffin. Russia beat the nazis once, Russia will beat them again.

The only advice to Yatsenyuk and Poroshenko (or whatever Nuland calls them): cease and desist while you still have a chance, if of course it is not already too late.

Save the children and the people of Donbass.

President Putin Promoting Peace in Ukraine, Diplomacy in Austria

John Robles

On the heels of submitting an official request to the Federation Council to repeal the authorization for the use of force in Ukraine, which was never used but was granted as a means to protect civilian and Russian lives, President Vladimir Putin headed to Austria on an official visit with President of the Republic of Austria Heinz Fischer and expanded talks with high officials. President Putin stated that he was asking for the repeal to attempt to deescalate the situation and as the head of state to promote peace.

After the official greeting ceremony and conversation with Austrian President Fischer the Presidents gave a press conference where President Putin was asked about Austrian-Russian relations, cooperation in the energy sphere and the situation in Ukraine.

According to the Kremlin website after the welcome ceremony: “The Presidents of the two countries attended the signing of an Agreement between the Government of the Russian Federation and the Government of the Republic of Austria on mutual assistance following natural or industrial disasters and cooperation in preventing them.”

We are doing business that is natural

In what may be a surprise to some in the West President Putin revealed that Russia is doing business and nothing but business and that Russia seeks a peaceful resolution to the conflict in Ukraine.

Being the quintessential statesman and diplomat that the Russian leader is, President Putin made generous statements regarding the US and the West whom he called partners and friends.

Responding to questions from reporters, President Putin underlined that the North Stream, South Stream and Blue Stream (to Turkey) have existed for a long time and that it is a mistake to say that Russian is always doing something against someone. President Fischer agreed that the South Stream was expedient and necessary.

As for the US’ attempts to aggressively dictate energy policy in Europe President Putin said this was natural given that they are a competitor, but their product will cost much more than Russian pipeline gas ever will. The President underlined the fact that in business competition in healthy but that the United States attempts to use politics to influence business, something Russia does not do. The US wants to deliver gas to Europe and that is normal said President Putin, also stating that all of the Russian projects are between contractual partners who Russia does not attempt to restrict or dictate to and in fact encourages to have diversified partnerships, as Russia does with China.

In the period before the visit many Austrian business leaders also spoke out on Russian television against tying business to politics and some attacked US Sanctions as counterproductive.


The big question apparently on everyone’s mind was the fragile ceasefire in Ukraine, with one reporter asking a provocative question as to whether Russia had set conditions on the ceasefire. President Putin responded by repeating that since Russia is not a party to the conflict in Ukraine, Russia has not set any conditions.

President Putin said the ceasefire needs to include concrete steps to end hostilities and must lead to dialogue. He underlined his support for the plan and for Kiev and President Poroshenko but said that it would be meaningless if there are no efforts for talks.

President Putin underlined the Russian position that the people in the south east of Ukraine must feel that their voices and their interests matter and that they are being listened to by Kiev and that their rights are being protected.

Always the realist President Putin pointed out that the Right Sector and the illegal far right military formations have not disarmed which after the events in Odessa, which the President said must be investigated, the people in the south east have every right to say: “Sure, we lay down our arms, and tomorrow they come and burn us alive!”

He also brought up several issues which show some of the hypocrisy evident in the Ukrainian conflict by mentioning that the Right Sector and fascist groups in the West took up arms and staged an armed coup and but then they people in the east did the same thing to protect their interests and their lives they were labelled separatists.

President Putin also said that Russia cannot ignore what is happening in Ukraine and made it clear that Russia would do everything it can to protect ethnic Russians in Ukraine and added that Russia would also protect those who see themselves as part of the broader Russian world. Although he said he hoped that it would not take the army to do that.

UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin

At the United Nations Vitaly Churkin also commented on the Ukrainian ceasefire which he called a “fragile” beginning. The Diplomat stated that although the Poroshenko plan had no clause calling for dialogue one had been started anyway and that the Ukrainian people had a real reason to be suspicious of Kiev.

Ambassador Churkin reiterated that Russia has always pushed for a diplomatic solution in Ukraine and commented on US obstructionism in the United Nations and the hypocrisy of UN observers who said they had no access to Crimea to see the referendum (they refused to go) but then were able to somehow testify that the lives of civilians had grown worse.

Mr. Churkin also stated that the West plays the humanitarian card whenever it is politically expedient but for some reason is ignoring the humanitarian catastrophe in Ukraine. He put the figure on Ukrainians who had fled to Russia at almost half a million stating that 450,000 people had sought refuge in Russia since the February coup.

Fighting Continues

As reports continue to come in about sporadic fighting the Right Sector leader Dmitry Yarosh appeared on Russian television, speaking Russian, and said there should be no ceasefire and that this was a good time to move in and finish off what he called the “separatists”.

Will the fragile peace hold? President Putin is doing everything he can to make sure it does.

Iraq, Ukraine and the Big Lie of American Democratization

John Robles

As huge swatches of Iraq and the Middle East begin to fall to the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, an al-Qaeda terrorist groups, determined to create their own caliphate in the region, the similarities to their rise to power and other marginal violent groups with the support of the US/NATO/CIA, is something that peace loving citizens of the world should take heed of and be alarmed about.

What started as an "anti-regime" formation in Libya, Syria and the Middle East, is now on the verge to founding its own state. The parallels to their rise and the rise of fascist groups in Ukraine should not be ignored.

The conflict in Ukraine is the latest disaster in American meddling and geopolitical chess. And again millions of people have died, lost loved ones or had their lives destroyed or thrown into upheaval. And yet another country is facing complete economic collapse and in fact the end of its existence as a sovereign territorial entity.

The destruction of Ukraine, however, is now being overshadowed by the continuing destruction of Iraq which should have seen the end of US meddling or, at least, have been a warning to any state, who the US was interested in, spreading the "democracy" in.

The ISIL: The Rise of the US' Islamic Terrorists

The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS), an al-Qaeda associated extremist Sunni terrorist army, has now taken over huge swatches of oil rich Iraq and parts of Syria as it attempts to create its own caliphate in the Middle East, one which will span the territories of multiple countries. Its territorial gains in the past weeks alone have included Mosul and huge sections of northern Iraq, as it continues to bear down on its goal of taking Baghdad.

The current rise of the ISIL is a direct result of US meddling in the Middle East, and has its roots in the US/CIA orchestrated war in Syria and the long history of US/CIA involvement in the creating and funding of al-Qaeda in Afghanistan to fight the USSR and other terrorist formations throughout the Middle East and in particular in Syria, where the ISIL received huge amounts of US/UK/CIA funding and military support in the US’ failing attempt to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian Government.

ISIL/US/CIA involvement was also instrumental in overthrowing the government in Libya and the murder of its leader Muammar Gaddafi. The ISIL has grown more and more powerful across the Middle East through US/CIA/UK funding from powerful Sunni interests, secular Sunni factions in Iraq and the Middle East, anti-Shia forces across the region, by black market trade in Libyan oil, trade in narcotics and weapons and outright theft and murder.

The ISIL have been described as worse than wild animals and murderous lunatics, who justify their brutality by hiding behind perverted and mutated interpretations of Islam. Intelligence reports and testimony, related to the recent slaughter of 426 children, which the US tried to blame on the Government of Bashar al-Assad as a pretext to an invasion of Syria has been largely attributed to the ISIL and the brutal Islamist terrorist organizations and groups which it is allied to and serves as an umbrella for.

The rise of the ISIL into what is approaching to be the size of a state actor again is the result of decades of covert CIA/US collusion with Islamic terrorists groups, who the US/CIA ally with, in order to meet their geopolitical and other objectives in the region and in many cases worldwide, including on and after 9-11-2001.

The CIA may have begun by thinking they controlled their secret Islamist armies, but the ISIL and other al-Qaeda groups decided that they deserve their own state and territory, and have become a force unto themselves, underlining the core failure and complete myopic vision of US foreign policy, which allies with, supports, funds, arms and trains any violent group regardless of ideology if it can help achieve geopolitical and military objectives.

In Libya US/NATO, in effect provided air-support for its secret Islamic armies on the ground and attempted to do the same in Syria.

ISIL and OUN/Svoboda: The Shared Roots of Murderous Hate

The scenario in Ukraine is the same as the one the US has used in South and Central America, in certain Asian countries and in the Middle East. There is no difference, except for the names and the particular groups. The result will also be the same if there is not a concerted effort by the international community to bring the nazi junta to justice in Ukraine and end their rise to power before they spread across Europe and destabilizes the entire continent.

As I have repeatedly said in the past, it has been long overdue for the real international community to put an end to US meddling worldwide and stop the imperial hegemony from destroying countries at will, and removing governments and leaders under the false and overused pretext of spreading "democracy", which is simply a code-word meaning "subservient to the US".

It is almost beyond belief that in 2014 the US/CIA/NATO/EU have enabled and unleashed nazis in Europe, who are today engaged in a war against their own people, but that is the reality, and the formula is the same as in Iraq and the Middle East, even down to who is profiting. From Greystone/Blackwater to Chevron/Exxon, from the neoconservative geopolitical architects behind the scenes to the Soros/USAID societal manipulators and, finally, to the war profiteers and the Pentagon/NATO dinosaurs. All of the players are the same as are their charges.

With the fall of Mosul to Islamic terrorists Europe and the world should now be raising the alarm at the fall of Kiev to nazi terrorists. Instead the pliable consumers of western media propaganda and lies, "zombified" and brain-washed into believing in their own exceptionalism and the “nobility” of their leaders, have been falsely led like a pack of sheep to slaughter into believing that somehow Russia is to blame, and its President Vladimir Putin (one of the few world leaders who dares to follow and independent foreign policy) is somehow guilty of aggression, even as Russians are being killed by the "nazi" junta and its forces in Ukraine.

No More US Credibility: Iranian/US Union?

The real possibility of military or other cooperation between Iran and the US, which has appeared recently, should be causing alarm bells to go off across the entire spectrum not least of all in Iran itself. From US soldiers, who are to make the ultimate sacrifice when they are called to, to politicians of every shade, to the US taxpayer who in the end has to pay for every adventure the US embarks on, screams should be heard after decades of propaganda, how the Islamic Republic of Iran must sanctioned, controlled and destroyed.

The fall of Mosul should have put the final nail into the coffin of US credibility and should have caused outrage among even the staunchest US allies, US veterans and the loved ones of soldiers, who honorably gave their lives in the heavy fighting in Mosul during the last US/Iraq war.

There is one loud voice who has spoken out, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei accused the United States on Sunday of trying to retake control of Iraq, by exploiting sectarian rivalries reports Reuters.

The Same Geopolitical Architects

The US installed "leader" (holding the favored by the US rank of Prime Minister) in Iraq, al-Maliki, was basically told by US Secretary of State John "we know" Kerry on Monday to change the government to one more pliable, underlining the role the US has abrogated to itself of interfering everywhere and anywhere it pleases.

Another ridiculous exhibition of mindless hypocrisy that much of the western media has carried out without so much as blinking an eye has been the stream of discredited Neocons responsible for the historic disaster and illegal invasion of a sovereign country based on lies that have been rolled as at experts and commentators on the current disaster taking place in Iraq.

The likes of Dick "puncture an eye" Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz and William Kristol, men, who should have been relegated to comfortable white padded rooms long ago, have all made appearances as of late to comment on the country they destroyed as if they are experts and their opinions matter.

If things continue as they have, and the failed US foreign policy architects seem to perpetually repeat themselves, then in several years we should have huge swatches of Europe being taken over by “nazi” formations and Victoria Nuland be rolled out to ask her opinion as another European capitol falls to nazi terrorists. Is this a future we want? I hope, not.

Other Failed "Democracy" Projects

The following is a list of countries where the US has organized coup d’états, supported revolutions, overthrown governments, invaded, annexed, supported groups or forces, who overthrew or attempted to overthrow governments or outright executed the leaders, all done in the name of democracy and funded by the American taxpayer and illicit funding. In none of these countries did the lives of the citizenry improve after US “intervention”.

Afghanistan, Albania, Angola, Argentina, Bolivia, Bosnia, Brazil, Cambodia, Chile, China, Colombia, Congo, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Egypt, El Salvador, Germany, Greece, Grenada, Guam, Guatemala, Haiti, Hawaii, Honduras, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Korea, Kuwait, Laos, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Macedonia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Oman, Pakistan, Panama, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Russia, Samoa, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Turkey, Ukraine, Uruguay, USSR, Venezuela, Vietnam, Virgin Islands, Yemen, Yugoslavia and Zaire (Congo).

What they have done and are doing to Native Americans might also be added to the list as the continuing genocide of the indigenous peoples is the foundation of endemic “American” racism and exceptionalism.

US to Distance Itself from Kiev as Civilian Body Count Rises

Charles Shoebridge

The continuing punitive military operations in Ukraine bring into question how far a Government can go to crush dissent. The Western-backed government, in the eyes of many, is guilty of horrible crimes from Mariupol to Odessa. And there have been accusations of war crimes, as heavy artillery, white phosphorus and cluster bombs are being used in Slavyansk, Lugansk and other areas. Charles Shoebridge, a former military intelligence counterterrorism officer, believes that Ukraine is waging a punitive operation against its own people.

This is John Robles, I'm speaking with Mr. Charles Shoebridge. He is a former British army officer and counterterrorism intelligence officer. He is also a security analyst and specialist.

Greeting between Robles and Shoebridge

Robles: Regarding the escalating situation in the southeast of Ukraine, the latest developments; we have incursions into the Russian territory, we have what’s probably the use of white phosphorus, we have cluster bombs being used. Can you comment on the military aspect of the operation there against the opposition?

Shoebridge: What the Ukrainian Government appears to be doing is employing tactics that are traditionally used by armies throughout the world, that don’t really have a coherent counter-insurgency strategy.

I mean, they are calling this a counterterrorism operation, but, in fact it is increasingly looking like from the side of the Ukrainian military’s perspective, a conventional assault on towns using heavy weapons and the array of weaponry, or shall we say, at least the means being used in terms of, for example, the alleged and the suspected use of white phosphorous recently, is an example of where the array of weaponry and means is being expanded, because, of course, the counterinsurgency operation that they are employing at the current time isn’t working or perhaps isn’t working fast enough for the authorities in Kiev.

If you remember that Poroshenko, really within hours of being elected pretty much said that the “antiterrorist operation”, as he called it, in the east would continue, but it would be over within hours. And of course, those hours have now become very extended and so, therefore, there is probably some considerable political pressure on the military to achieve whatever objectives have been set for it, even if those are going to end up to be very limited objectives in a fairly short space of time, and the way that the military would traditionally response to such pressure is of course to ramp up the amount of firepower they are using.

They are using these standard conventional tactics, to a large degree, because it saves their manpower. In terms of being able to use heavy weapons, such as strike aircraft, helicopters, artillery motors and so on of course, all of these are weapons that can be deployed against the activist or against the rebel forces with minimal risk to the actual Ukraine forces. And so, you can see that, on the one hand, they want to avoid their own casualties, which of course is understandable.

Secondly though, there may be questions from the first stages of this “counterterrorism operation”, as it’s called up to weeks or even months ago now, where the reliability of the troops being used, the police being used in that operation was called into question. Some of those troops and the police even defected to the rebels’ side. And so, again, it avoids issues like this, it avoids close combat, if the Ukrainian military are using these heavy weapons.

Of course, it is fairly obvious that the majority of casualties are likely to be civilians. And then, crucially, this has a very counterproductive effect, because, going back to what Poroshenko said in really the early hours of him being President-elect, following the elections, he in many ways put out an olive branch to not the fighters but the people – as he called it – the ordinary peaceful people of the eastern provinces, that they should be part of Ukraine, they have nothing to fear. But, of course, it is those very people that are now suffering most from this strategy of these tactics of using heavy weaponry as a means of – if you like – trying to strike at the fighters, but without closing with them.

The effect on the civilian population of being placed under bombardment by heavy weapons, will be to turn that population against that government, irrespective of what nature that government is.

Robles: Let’s take it a little bit into the UK. Say, Scotland had a referendum, they wanted to separate, right? And what if the UK Government started bombing Scotland into oblivion?

Shoebridge: For example, when the Crimean plebiscite/referendum was called, the UK was in the forefront of condemning this referendum as; what it called, illegal. And it supported the Ukrainian Government in its definition of that referendum as illegal.

Notwithstanding in September we will be having a very similar referendum in Scotland to decide whether Scotland should become completely independent from the rest of the UK. And of course, what makes that legal is of course that the UK Government has agreed to that. And so on the other hand, we’ve got the same Government supporting a Ukraine Government which doesn’t allow such self-determination in the Crimea.

So, right from the very start the position of the UK and, indeed, other countries that would have supported referendums, for example, in Kosovo notably, these countries of course were put from the very outset, in a logically inconsistent and really unsustainable position, when it came to condemning, particularly the Crimea referendum.

Let’s say for example, the Crimean Government as it was, invited in, for example, the OSCE to send monitors in to observe that. So, then, when the Western media criticizes the outcome of the Crimean Referendum and points out that there were no foreign observers, at least from the West, of course, it was the West’s choice not to send observers there but they were invited.

The parallel with Scotland in the UK is clear even if it is an inverse relationship. You’ve got the UK Government and its allies absolutely supporting within the UK the rights of part of the UK, if it should chose to do so in September, to become independent and yet of course denying that in Ukraine.


Observers are deployed throughout Ukraine, particularly in the eastern points to observe what is happening in a military perspective, in this “context” if you like, the allegations of bombardments, including for example, with white phosphorus, of civilian areas is a subject that ought to be the subject of some form of investigation. And the OSCE can step into this role in order to at least establish the facts of what happened.

So, when we go back to the situation of white phosphorus being suspected of being used next to Slavyansk in the last couple of days, I myself have seen video which purports to be and as far as we know “is”, a video of the target area in daylight showing what appears to be white phosphorus still in fact burning.

Now, the easy part of that investigation would be to establish that white phosphorus or something similar was used.

The difficult part of course would be, and again probably the OSCE and other organizations perhaps would want to take a backward step at this point; the point is then establishing what the purpose of using those munitions was, and that would then determine whether the use was illegal under the laws of war or not.

Robles: Can you give us an example of when they would be legal?

Shoebridge: Yes, for example the uses of white phosphorus are basically three-fold: white phosphorus can be used mainly for producing smoke to cover the movement of troops, for example, but remember that this was a night-time incident, which makes it unlikely that smoke was the reason.

Another reason that white phosphorus can be used is as a battlefield illumination device. And again, it may be that in circumstances of its alleged use a couple of days ago that that was the case. However, there are much better ways of illuminating the battlefield, for example by using a technology (image intensification for example) or if you are going to use flares, there are better ones available that come down for example on slow parachutes, which means that the area is illuminated for much longer.

So generally speaking, looking at the video from the other day, if indeed that is genuine video and there is nothing as far as I'm aware to suggest that it isn’t so far, that it seems unlikely phosphorus was used for smoke and secondly its use as an illuminant is dubious, because there are much better ways of doing so.

It cannot be used lawfully under a number of conventions and laws in a way that is so reckless that it is going to cause obvious danger and even less, of course, deliberately targeting the civilian areas. And if indeed that was the case the other day, then it would appear there is at least a case to be made that an illegal act occurred. But again, this would require more investigation, and this is one of the areas where the OSCE, in at least establishing the facts on the ground, could be called upon to step in.

Robles: Is it legal… these fragmentation-type bombs? Because I had a source come from Slavyansk yesterday and he brought some pieces of a bomb that was about 2 cm thick steel. Are those legal?

Shoebridge: Yes. I mean many weapons are, especially anti-personnel weapons, are a fragmentation device. And even a hand grenade, for example, is a fragmentation weapon. And then, of course, that can go to actual artillery and to bombs shot from aircraft which of course will use shrapnel to kill people.

So, these weapons themselves are not in themselves illegal. If cluster munitions are being used, which is a different thing, where they are using a bomb which will fragment into a lot of different separate bomblets which can explode at different times, that would raise issues of legality. But I don’t think that is what is being discussed here at this time.

However, what is important is in a way the type of weapon, generally speaking, what is important is how they are used. So, no matter what the weapon, if it is being used indiscriminately against primarily civilian areas, and even more so, if it is being used of course deliberately in a way that is targeting the civilian areas, not withstanding that there may be one or two fighters somewhere in that area, this could well be illegal under the Rules of War, it could be said to constitute war crimes. And of course, people can be held responsible for that at a later stage.

Robles: Is there supposed to be some level of threat that justifies a level of force? I don’t see a justifiable, legitimate reason to use fighter aircraft against opposition demonstrators who are defending their own areas?

Shoebridge: It is an interesting question, not least because of this reason: that when you have a conflict between states, of course, international laws of war will apply. Here we’ve got a domestic national dispute. So it raises questions: Is this a war? Is this a police operation? Is this a counterinsurgency operation? Is it (as it is being described) an antiterrorist operation?

If it is an antiterrorist operation then… (I know really very little about the domestic laws of Ukraine in connection with the use of force by police) but, for example, most countries will have laws that apply to the application of force by the state within the state’s boundaries.

So if this is a policing action, then generally speaking certainly in much of the Western world (and let’s not forget, it is the Western world which is largely backing this operation by the Ukraine Government), then by their own standards the deployment of force must be reasonable and it must be proportionate to the threat faced and to what objective is actually to be achieved.

But, perhaps, on a more important level, shall we say, from the perspective of the Ukraine Government, one has to ask what the objectives actually are in this case, because if the objectives are to crush the rebellion win back the support or at least the acceptance of the people in these areas (as Poroshenko, at least on the surface, claimed to be the aim that he has in mind) these methods of using heavy weapons in this way, which by their very nature tend to be poorly targeted indiscriminately, will be counterproductive.

It is absolutely clear that if a government uses these kinds of methods of bombardment, of air attacks, of shall we say, blockade and even by its speech alienating large numbers of its people (for example straight after Yanukovych was overthrown of course, there was a lot of draft legislation that really quite clearly was targeting the Russian-speaking population), if all of that happens, of course, that is going to change the dynamic, change the mindset of people in those areas, so that actually people who until relatively recently wanted themselves to be regarded as Russian-speaking and wanted their culture, language and church respected, actually in many cases (now I'm sure because it would happen anywhere in the world where this is happening) will actually begin to think of themselves as not being a part and not in the future part of the state called Ukraine, which has in their mind, in many cases targeted them.

There needs to be peace and stability. And until there is some negotiated agreement between those in power in the eastern provinces, I'm talking about de facto power and the Government in Kiev, until some sort of peace and stability can result, the military campaign that the Ukrainian Government is currently waging in these provinces is almost certain to be counterproductive and will not produce an atmosphere that is conducive to a fair and free election. And it may be that even in parliamentary elections, that they can’t be held in these restive provinces. But at the moment the tactics being used by the Ukraine authorities, would not be considered by most people to be good progressive counterinsurgency tactics that are likely to produce the result that Poroshenko himself in his election day address said was his aim.

Robles: The last point, would you characterize those operations there as genocide?

Shoebridge: I think what’s happened is that you’ve got a situation where the Ukraine Government is struggling militarily, where you’ve got people who quite clearly enjoy a considerable amount of local popular support. We are talking about the rebels that here in the western media we call separatists, but who, to a large extent, are just people who want to protect their rights from what they see as an alien government and unelected government.

But the Ukraine Government is finding it difficult militarily to dislodge those people. And so therefore it is resorting to these heavy weapons which are going to kill and injure very large numbers of civilians as well. And of course that will just actually lead people into a feeling that A) they are not part of this Ukraine Government or part of the Ukraine nation and secondly that they will actually in many cases sign up to defend militarily their areas from the people who are causing these deaths and this devastation.

And also, of course increasingly it is possible now to see what the BBC and the Times and the CNN are not showing, which of course is that there is going to be some considerable embarrassment, I think that is growing for the Kiev Government but more importantly perhaps, in the long run, for its EU and US backers.

These US and EU backers the government and the media here will increasingly want to distance themselves from the Kiev Government, at least publically, the more civilian casualties are unavoidably seen.

In the old days, before the Internet, it would have been possible to have hidden what is going on in these eastern provinces. But now, because of these alternative media sources available, Twitter and so on…for example, when Mariupol happened or when Odessa happened, no matter what slant the Western media puts on those events it couldn’t really hide the truth behind what actually happened.

Robles: Thank you very much!

McFaul 2.0: Ukraine "Color" Revolution Architect John Tefft Coming to Russia

John Robles

The choice by US President Barack Obama and the neo-conservative Cold War hawks running the US foreign policy establishment of John F. Tefft as the new US Ambassador to Russia should be setting off warning bells all over the Kremlin and in fact in all of the countries currently undergoing or targeted for US regime change/destabilization operations including Venezuela, Brazil, Syria and all other countries pursuing an independent foreign policy.

With the current humanitarian catastrophe in Ukraine and the rise of violent fascist forces, the fact that the chief architect of Operation Ukraine is now being sent to Russia is at once chilling and at the same time predictable.

After the spectacular failure of US Ambassador Michael McFaul to pull off a color revolution in Russia leading to his demise as the US top color revolution/destabilization specialist, the US as usual, rather than admitting it is wrong and pursuing a path of peace and promoting mutual cooperation, has decided to stubbornly snub its nose at the Kremlin and continue down a road of confrontation.

With the leadership of the US State Department prone to statements such as Victoria Nuland’s famous "F-the-EU", the body responsible for diplomacy on a continuous confrontational war footing and organizations like USAID co-opted to the CIA and involved in destabilization operations all of the world every country that has not been already "annexed" by Washington should take a very close look at who they are allowing to operate in their country.

This past April I summed up the choice as follows"John F. Tefft, a Russia hater who served as US Ambassador to Ukraine, Georgia and Lithuania and promoted the invasion of South Ossetia while in Georgia, the current crisis and the resurgence of fascist forces in Ukraine and the rabid Russophobia and demonization of Russia in Lithuania, has been chosen to be the next US Ambassador to Russia. Tefft was extremely active and involved and one might say instrumental in bringing about the aforementioned anti-Russian events. As McFaul failed to organize the destabilization of Russia and the ouster of President Putin, apparently Obama is seeking more experienced hands."

With Tefft’s history in organizing the destabilization in Ukraine and his role as a key architect of the previous color revolution(s) there, his role in assisting to whatever degree the rise of anti-Russian neo-nazis and Russophobes in other former Soviet Eastern Bloc countries and most stunningly his role in the Georgian attack and the ensuing short war in South Ossetia it would be extremely justified for President Putin, the Russian Foreign Ministry and the Russian Security Services to simply say no to the appointment.

The US is bent on destroying Russia and preventing Russia from being a competitive global power. That fact is documented, all but openly stated and is no longer a secret. Ukraine has made it more than obvious even for the staunchest Washington apologists and the idea of some "reset" or peaceful cooperation from the US side has become nothing but a fantasy. By its own confrontational policies, aggressive military expansion, unilateral sanctions and most importantly the almost completely transparent support of neo-nazis in Ukraine who are waging a war by proxy against Russia for the US and killing Russian journalists, ethnic Russians and anyone who is pro-Russian, the US has proven it is nothing but an unapologetic global aggressor bent on spreading its own hegemony by force at any cost (a fact laid out by the PNAC).

Regarding the appointment of Tefft there are two ways the scenario may play out, he may be turned down which is probably unlikely, or he may be accepted under the philosophy of "keeping my enemies as close as possible." As we saw with McFaul whose color-revolution attempts were neutralized almost from the day he arrived and whose tenure saw the expulsion of USAID, the Voice of America and the entire host of US subversive organizations, plans and individuals, Tefft will have an even harder time if he is allowed to set foot on the territory of Russia.

Given the fact that Tefft is already a known enemy of Russia unlike the smiling McFaul who played on the Trojan Horse of the reset, it would be interesting to watch if Tefft can get anything done at all, but with the stakes being the very integrity of the Russian State, there is a doubt that such a cat and mouse game is worth it. However, given the caliber of State’s "F-the-EU" employees, that risk might be overstated and Tefft is given more credit than he deserves.
