Ukraine: Game Over or the Beginning of the Escalation?

As Brad Cabana, retired Canadian armed forces captain, explains, the Ukraine Government's genocidal assault on the Russian-speaking population of South-Eastern Ukraine is headed for total failure. By burning, shelling, strafing, bombing and lobbing ballistic missiles at civilian targets in Eastern Ukraine, the US-installed, neo-Nazi-backed Kiev junta has irretrievably lost all respect and toleration in Russian-speaking South-Eastern Ukraine, where complete separation from Ukraine is now the only acceptable option. At the same time, the junta armed forces, sent to occupy and punish the formerly federalist, now separatist, people of Eastern Ukraine have been comprehensively defeated by the local self-defense militia with substantial Russian aid.

The struggle may long continue. Great disasters may yet be in store. The psychopathic warlord Kolomoisky may yet blow the Dnieper hydro-electric dam, releasing 33 billion tons of water to wash away whole towns and villages.

But whatever events intervene, the latest episode in the drive for US global hegemony through color revolutions, sabotage, bribery, assassination and collaboration with the scum of the earth seems likely to end in an epoch-making reverse. Russia has already reclaimed its ancient naval base of Crimea with a compelling democratic mandate. And when the dust settles in Ukraine, the US project to bring its first-strike-enabling anti-missile system to Russia's Ukraine border will prove a humiliating failure.

Unless, that is, the West raises the stakes by direct intervention on the side of the Kiev neo-Nazis, leading to an escalating proxy war between NATO and Russia. Then, anything may happen and we could all be dead by Christmas.

Of the alternative, US-NATO humiliation is much to be preferred. For the West, the embarrassment would not be a catastrophe. By revealing for all to see that the existing genocidal system of Western capitalism is not only evil but profoundly stupid, it may provide an opportunity, perhaps the only opportunity, to restore in the West the sovereign nation-state democracies that have been submerged by the US drive to establish an oligarchic system of control over an enslaved, miscegenated global proletariat that is to be bred, culled and brainwashed at will.

Vive le Novorossia libre.

Why Most People don’t Know What They Think They Know About Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

First, and this is the biggie, Russia has not invaded Ukraine (and here).

But then there are several other reasons. For example, most people think that Russia or the “pro-Russian” rebels of East Ukraine shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight MH-17 over the Donetsk battle zone. For some reason, this is supposed to clinch the argument for Russian invasion and, in general, for the utter evil of Vladimir Putin and the Russian people stupid enough to support him.

But the entire concept is incorrect.

First, because there are no  “pro-Russian” rebels. The civil war in Ukraine is being fought between US-installed Nazis in Kiev who launched a war of extermination against six million ethnic Russians in Eastern Ukraine, and the people of Eastern Ukraine opposed to being genocided by a murderous Ukrainian state controlled by oligarchs and criminals backed and financed by the forces of the New World Order; namely, Washington, Ottawa, London, NATO, the IMF, etc., etc.

Second, because there is no evidence that the downing of MH-17 had anything to do with Russia or those fighting for East Ukraine independence. This is clear from the determination of the Nazified Western states (i.e., Ukraine, the Netherlands, Belgium and Australia) who are conducting the technical investigation of the crash to prevent release of the results of their own investigation. The implication is clear, those results prove that MH-17 was shot down by Kiev forces or their Western backers, with the obvious intent of smearing the “pro-Russians” fighting for their lives in Eastern Ukraine with the crime of mass murder.

Mike Whitney — Obama’s “Catastrophic Defeat” in Ukraine
Moscow has repeatedly called for an end to the violence and a resumption of negotiations, but each request has been rebuffed by Obama’s puppet in Kiev leading to another round of hostilities. Washington doesn’t want peace. Washington wants the same solution it imposed on Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria, that is, a chaotic failed state where ethnic and sectarian animosities are kept at a boiling point so forward-operating bases can be established without resistance, so resources can be extracted at will, and so a formally-independent nation can be reduced to a “permanent state of colonial dependency.” (Chomsky) That’s the basic gameplan wherever Washington goes. The same rule applies to Ukraine. The only choice the people have is to arm themselves and fight back. Which is what they’ve done.

Donetsk and Lugansk have formed militias and taken the war to the enemy. They’ve engaged Obama’s proxy-army on the battlefield and pounded it into mincemeat. That’s why Obama deployed his propagandists to lie about the fictitious “Russian invasion”. The administration needs a diversion because the Novorussia forces (aka-the “pro Russia separatists”) are kicking the holy crap out of Obama’s legions. ...

B'nai Brith to Nominate Stephen Harper for Nobel Peace Prize — LOL

B’nai Brith Canada, an organization chiefly engaged in yelping about the horrifying incidence of anti-Semitism in Canada, will nominate Stephen Harper for the Nobel Peace Prize, a prize unconnected except in name with Alfred Nobel that is awarded by a corrupt committee of warmongering Norwegian MPs.

Harper, a fervent Russophobe who equates Canadian critics of the Israeli government with Hitlerite Nazis, seems an ideal candidate to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Peace Prize winner Barak O'Bomber, the worst American President ever, the man who destroyed Libya (with Harper's assistance) — then the most prosperous country in Africa, renewed the bombing of Iraq, and now with side-kicks Harper and Cameroon, seeks to launch WWIII.

Meantime, Canada plans to provide further military help to the Nazis of Kiev now being terrorized by the Russian speakers of their own South-Eastern provinces who they (the Nazis, that is, the folks we Canadians support) set out to exterminate. At the same time, the EU is looking to screw itself to spite the Russians by further sanctions on its own trade.

As someone several thousand years ago said, those whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad.

This, of course, is a good reason for knowing that the latest Western propaganda is a lie. Those who are pathological liars don’t suddenly start telling the truth.

Ukraine: Nazi NATO Setting the Stage for a Proxy War on Russia

The US, in rapid economic and military decline relative to its rivals Russia and China, is intent on a war to smash the competition while the possibility of success remains. The principle of mutual assured nuclear destruction that for more than 70 years has kept the peace between the United States and Russia does not apply in wars between US and Russian proxies. The US thus aims to create the conditions for a proxy war in Ukraine, the ultimate objective of which is the humiliation of Putin, disintegration of the Russian Federation through foreign subversion, a new round of oligarchic looting, and expansion of NATO to China's border.

America's own representatives, the Kiev junta, have already been installed. But on the other side space must be created for the Russian proxy. A start was made by the declaration by former Ukraine PM and Presidential candidate Julia Tymoshenko of genocidal intent against the eight million Russians of South Eastern Ukraine, a provocation followed by the little-reported atrocities committed against unarmed opponents of the Kiev junta in Odessa and during the ongoing punitive assault on Donetsk, Lugansk and other towns of Eastern Ukraine, where the people were incited by the terrorists and neo-Nazis of Kiev to vote overwhelmingly for autonomy within a federated Ukraine.

Memorial to the Second Nazi War on Russia: Source.
The memorial to the First Nazi War on Russia. — same location.
In defending themselves from attack by both the regular Ukraine army and Kiev's punitive brigades of neo-Nazis and criminals, the people of Donetsk Republic have transformed a self-defense militia of a few dozen volunteers into a well-disciplined and battle hardened army that makes the plausible claim to have killed, captured or wounded over 35,000 junta forces. Now the army of the Donetsk Republic appears to be on a roll, encircling large junta troop formations and rapidly extending its area of control. It is quite possible, however, that Ukraine army forces are being deliberately sacrificed by the Ukrainian command in order to create a significant footprint for Russia's proxy.

If that is the case, a turning point can be expected quite soon, at which time the junta forces will be stiffened either by better leadership or, as necessary, through increased NATO support. Then it will be Russia's turn to provide further assistance to their representatives. From that point, the sky's the limit to possible escalation. With home-made nukes already in their possession, the Kiev junta may be the first government to nuke their own people. Most critical, would be the struggle for control of the air, with Russia's anti-aircraft missile systems pitted against the US Air Force that performed so admirably on 9/11.

As for the outcome, who knows? Or as Winston Churchill remarked:
Always remember, however sure you are that you could easily win, that there would not be a war if the other man did not think he also had a chance.
Can such a war be averted? Almost certainly not unless the United States is confronted by a rebellion within the NATO alliance. The European nations, with the exception of Poland, the Baltic crazies and the UK, obviously don't want a new European civil war. In particular, neither Germany nor Russia have any reason for war.  On the contrary, both countries are well aware that the combination of German capital and technology with Russian human and natural resources can forge a hugely prosperous central European partnership.

The risk of rebellion against America`s war plans is, however, not great. Ask the US to remove their military bases from your territory and your nuclear reactors may blow up, question 9-11 and your airliners may be shot out of the air or simply disappeared. In fact, show any inclination to refuse the leadership of the indispensable nation and pressures will be brought to bear, and your leadership bought, blackmailed or assassinated. Hence the grovelling sycophancy of Stephen Harper, Tony Abbott, and Friend-of-Israel Cameron to the US-Israeli warmonger alliance.

Across Europe, it is true, the people have begun to push back against US imperialism, with strong electoral support going to nationalist parties. It is questionable, however, what signficance these nationalist movements have. Most are probably already firmly under the control of national or foreign security services. Angela Merkel, it is true, has had the temerity to deny the indispensability of indispensable nation and to demand a solution to the US-manufactured Ukraine crisis that does not harm Russia, while Hungary has condemned EU sanctions on Russia as counterproductive, while demanding autonomy for ethnic Hungarians in Ukraine.

But meantime the propaganda for war intensifies. The New York Times, notable for telling the World of Saddam`s soon-to-be-proved-nonexistent, weapons of mass destruction, is now assuring the World that Russia has begun the invasion of Ukraine. This, surely, is the prelude to new and aggressive anti-Russian measures to be decided upon at this weekend`s NATO meeting in Britain. The possibility of Europe collectively telling the US of Aggression to, in the words of a great American imperialist, go fuck themselves thus seems negligible to non-existent.

Ukraine Lost A Battle - West Escalates With More Russia Sanctions

NATO's goal: an internal Slavic war, the final solution to the Russian question
We often quote the words of Zbignew Brzezinski: “deprived of the reunion with Ukraine, Russia is not destined to reclaim the status of a great power”. “Long Zbig” is wrong: Russia can reclaim that status without Ukraine, but it will be more difficult and take longer. The thing is, Brzezinski is not original; he repeats the words of a German General Paul Rohrbach, who stated, in the beginning of the XX century: “to diminish the threat of Russia to Europe, and especially to Germany, you must completely remove Ukrainian Russia from Muscovy Russia”. Please note that to a German General both – Ukraine and Muscovy – are Russia; and he speaks of creating an internal, Russian, split. He evokes the ideas of the German politicians of the last third of the XIX century, principally Otto Eduard Leopold von Bismarck-Schönhausen, who not only insisted on the necessity of such a split, but defined the means.

Former German Defense Secretary: Germans Are Fed Up With NATO Lies About Ukraine and Look Forward to Departure of NATO Chief, Fogher Rasmussen

Former German Defense Secretary, Willy Wimmer: "People here in Germany are fed up with NATO lies and  they are fed up with wars organized by the United States, here and there and everywhere."

Actually, most Germans are probably taken in by the lies of Der Spiegel and the rest of the warmongering Deutsche MSM. Still, more intelligent Germans no doubt see through the lies, as more honest German politicians acknowledge.

Meantime, China describes the United States as "a disgusting thief looking over his neighbors fence."

Which seems to resonate with Jesus' rebuke to the Pharisees:
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Seems like a fair summing up of the US State Department spokeswomen, Hillary Klingon and Nobel Piss Prize winner O'Bomber.

Ukraine and the War for the World

The following comment by M.K. Ngoyo, which I have lifted directly from a discussion on the Saker's blog, provides a useful framework within which to understand the present struggle in Ukraine and the fundamental strengths and weakness of the US Empire and its adversaries.
Russia and China must realize the deadly seriousness of the trap that has been set for them in Ukraine.

The US has finally woken up to the massive blunder that they made at the end of the cold war. Believing thoroughly their own victory propaganda along with that nonsense by Francis Fukuyama about the end of history, they allowed, first, the rise of China and then the reemergence of Russia.

Well now the West is back, and they intend to finish the job. Once and for all. What the West is fighting for in Ukraine is the survival of its system of imperial domination of the world. Which is to say its fighting for the source of its wealth, its way of life, its very identity, as established over the last 500 years. In this struggle there will be no compromise. All such moves will be illusory. Russia may expect and ask for quarter, but no quarter will be given.

In the long term and strategically speaking, the real challenge to the West is not really Russia. It is China. But to defeat China, the West must first defeat Russia.

The West's strategy for defeating China is to control its air supply. Its access to resources and markets around the world. Once this choke-hold is established, then pressure can be applied or relaxed as needed to bring China to its knees or harness it as a work horse for the West.

However, the imperial hand will never fully encircle China's neck so long as Russia is a powerful and independent state, capable of acting in its own best interests. The West may chase China out of Africa, Latin America, South Asia etc but a free Russia will always be capable of supplying China will all raw materials as well as access to markets.

Therefore, the road to defeating China goes right through Moscow. Like it as not the West must tread this path, and they know this. The West must defeat Russia if it is to survive as global master.

But they don't have to defeat Russia militarily. I believe what they want is the "Yeltsinization" of Russia. They just need to break Russia's will to resist, bring it under their remote control and they will be able to complete their grip on China.

The strategy is simple, embroil Russia in a series of permanent crises on its border. Both without and within the Russian border. They don't need to take control of Ukraine, they just need to threaten that, chronically and credibly.

After Ukraine the member of the Customs Union can expect their own Maidans. They may as well start preparing now. The other 'stans in central Asia may also expect Maidans.

Russia exhausted by an endless succession of crises within its sphere of influence will be brought to heel and turned against China.

The only hope that I see for Russia and China is the quality of their current leadership.

The political leadership of both China and Russia is of a very high calibre as compared to what is to be found in the US and other Western countries. I believe they can escape the trap that has been laid for them, but it won't be easy.

Putin, above all, must step up to the challenge of global leadership. The world is waiting for this, indeed crying silently for it.

This is no time to focus on domestic Russian concerns. Putin must challenge the West on its own domestic situation, corruption and soulless culture. Putin must seize the leadership of the West's, dispossessed and disillusioned.

In Canada We're All Nazi-lovers Now

Stephen Harper has made no secret of his complete devotion to the genocidal, Russophobic neo-Nazi-backed Kiev junta and has incurred huge costs to Canada as a consequence: two hundred and twenty million dollars in cash; sanctions on Russian firms prompting retaliatory Russian sanctions costing Canadian pork producers alone the loss of over half a billion dollars in sales; millions for the supply of "non-kinetic" military aid to the genocidists of Kiev, plus the cost of sending Canadian armed forces personnel and fighter jets to Romania  and Poland.

Neo-Nazis of the Ukrainian Azov battalion. Source
Canada's Liberal Party is just as fervent in support of Ukraine's Russophobic Nazis. As Ukrainian-Canadian liberal MP Chrystia Freeland told the Globe and Mail “it’s really important for me personally as a Ukrainian-Canadian” that Canada take "a very strong line in support of Ukraine" and she added, “for us as a party, we think Canada is stronger in supporting Ukraine if we don’t play politics with this issue," which is to say Liberals are right there with Stephen Harper in support of the Banderites marching off to kill Ukrainian citizens of Russian ethnicity in East Ukraine under the wolfsangel banner as deployed by German Nazis during WWII.

With Justin Trudeau, it appears to be a case of like father like son, for there seems to have been no dictator that père, Pierre Trudeau, did not like. Fidel Castro he loved, Mao Tse Tung he adulated, and during WWII he so admired Hitler that he rode a motorcycle around Montreal wearing a helmet decorated with a swastika.

As for the NDP, Canada's official opposition party, does anyone have the slightest idea what leader Thomas Mulcair thinks about the war in Ukraine, Canadian sanctions on Russia, Canadian war planes in Romania, troops in Poland and with "non-kinetic" military aid to the Nazi-backed Kiev junta? Certainly a Google search reveals nothing.

Even Green Party leader Elizabeth May has had nothing to say about the war in Ukraine, which suggests that we can say that, in Canada, we're all Nazi-lovers now.


The Saker:

Situation report, August 26
... Partisan activities are increasing in frequency and force in the Kharkov and Slavyansk areas to the point Kharkov is building defenses facing Novorossiya. Of particular interest was the capture two weeks ago of an entire Kamaz load of Javelin antitank missiles. These missiles were offloaded from the 'Canadian' air force planes that brought 'non lethal' aid to the Uke army according to eye witnesses. The Javelin is not listed in the TOE (Table of Organization and Equipment) of the armed forces of Canada, although I have few doubts that that oversight will be rectified within minutes of this report being read in The West.

...Every day and every night the bombardment [of Novorossiya] continues. Civilian areas are mainly the targets. The destruction has been carefully planned and executed. The damage is in the many billions of euros and will take years to repair. The loss of life and injuries to the innocent civilians well exceeds 5,000 since the beginning of the war in April. The time for negotiations with Ukeland are long gone. The war will end when every single occupier of Novorossiya land from Ukeland is either ejected, in a POW camp or dead.

WW4: America's Neville Chamberlain Strategy — Set the Nazis Against the Russkies Then Stand Aside and Watch the Mutual Annihilation

Neville Chamberlain, the British Prime Minister universally reviled for his policy of appeasing Hitler, aimed not to appease Hitler, but to bring about the mutual destruction of Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia.* It was to this end that he compelled Czechoslovakia to cede to Germany the Sudentenland thereby opening the way for Hitler's subsequent invasion of the rest of the Czechoslovakia. Thus it was, also, that Chamberlain made no effort to meet Britain's commitment to the security of Poland when it was jointly invaded by Russia and Germany. Chamberlain's sole objective was to bring Russia and Germany face to face and wait for the hoped for war of mutual destruction.

Today, the Anglo-American strategy is the same. It is to raise a mighty Nazi army in Ukraine against Russia, backed by the American puppet regimes in Western Europe. Here, Putin adviser Sergei Glaziev, spells it out, how the prelude to WW4 is unfolding:

In this statement, Glaziev gives a broader account of his view of the geopolitical state of the World:

These are not the rantings of some unknown Internet commentator or no known influence in the world. These are the considered views of a close adviser to the leader of the World's only nation with the capacity to reduce the United States (and Western Europe) to radioactive ash.

Why the billionaires want to wipe you and the rest of the proletarian scum from the face of the Earth

Until the industrial revolution, every pair of hands was capable of work of value more or less equal to, or greater than, the cost of their maintenance. Thus population was of value to the elite and the wealthiest countries were those that supported the greatest populations.

Today, in the West, most people are redundant, not in theory, but in fact. Half the US population receives some form of welfare, workforce participation is declining, young people continue their "education" into their twenties and even thirties, becoming increasing ill-informed with every additional year of state-controlled, politically correct indoctrination in all matters from sex to climate change. In the meantime, computerization and robotization continually reduce the value of a pair of hands.

The off-shoring of millions of jobs from the West to the Rest, though it lowered real household income in the West, likely delayed the advance of automation, since it is tougher to build a robot that cost-effectively replaces an Asian paid 50 cents an hour, than to build one that replaces an American paid the minimum hourly wage of ten dollars or so.

But as the following video makes clear, the drive to create an automated economy, not just in manufacturing, transportation and low-level office work, but in the professions and creative occupations too, is proceeding relentlessly.

Hence the war on the nation state, a fundamentally democratic form of government that by definition must serve the interests of the people and thus do what is necessary to provide for them a means of subsistence and a basis for self-respect. Hence also the war on the Russian Federation where:
  • the GDP has tripled in the last fifteen years and the standard of living, if still modest, has vastly increased.
  • the thousand-year-old Russian commitment to the Orthodox Christian faith has been reaffirmed: a faith that holds each person, high or low, to be a child of God, created in God's image, and capable of the highest moral worth. 
  • where the ethnic and cultural heritage of the nation is protected by the state.
In all these respects, Russia and other genuine nation-state hold-outs are the great impediment to the dream of the globalist billionaire elite. That dream is to destroy the mass of humanity, now seen as useless eaters  made moronic by a globalized culture that grants greater legal protection to pornographers than to advocates of Christian faith, that destroys national traditions in the name of multi-culturalism, and that aims at the destruction of the ancient races of mankind through mass migration justified in the name diversity.

Few people in the West understand what is happening to them. They tolerate or chauvinistically applaud the Anglo-American drive for world hegemony, including the war on Russia, while failing to realize that their own ruling class has sold out — has been bought by the plutocratic elite, the Bilderbergers, the Trilaterists, the Davos crowd, the bankers and corporations that finance the Council on Foreign Relations and Chatham House, and that they are of no concern to anyone in government except as a potential cause of dissidence or revolt, against which governments continually prepare themselves, reading people's mail, destroying ancient liberties and accumulating means to crush civil unrest.

What world do you live in? Putin, East Ukraine and the Old World Order
Most people in the West, including those who are relatively well-informed about the geo-political context, see Putin as a 'dictator', a cold-eyed ex-FSB agent who is running Russia with an iron fist. There is only one reason why anyone can have ever formed this opinion: they are massively ignorant of how the world works. Putin is ex-FSB, and it is he, along with the upper echelons of Russian intelligence, that runs Russia. This is seen as 'anti-democratic' in the West and in those Russian minds infected by Western 'values' and propaganda. Yet US and British intelligence (among others) have been running not only the USA and UK for decades, but, indirectly, much of the rest of the world also.

Ukraine President's Fantasy of Russian Military Intervention?

Beginning with the US-instigated, neo-nazi-backed coup d'état in Kyiv, every effort seems to have been made by the agents of empire to provoke Russian intervention in Ukraine where NATO can get to work killing Russians without immediate risk of nuclear retaliation.

But so far, things haven't worked out quite as intended. Russia declined to mobilize forces to eliminate the nazi/oligarch monstrosity in Kyiv, but quietly retook possession of her ancient naval base of Crimea in accordance with an overwhelming democratic mandate from the largely Russian population of the peninsula.

As a further provocation, the fascists of Kiev sent a band of psychopaths to Odessa to commit an atrocity against citizens restive at the undemocratic turn of events in Kyiv. But Russia failed to invoke the Empire's principle of "R2P," which is to say the right to bomb the hell out of any country where the government has engaged, or is said to have engaged, in killing its own people.

At the same time, the Kyiv junta was itself faced by a provocation from its own people, namely, a referendum in Donbass in which more than 80% voted for autonomy within a federal Ukrainian state. In response, the Kyiv fascists sent an army of 70,000 regular troops, conscripts and nazi volunteers marching beneath their Wolfsangel banner, to bomb, shell and bayonet the "subhuman," "terrorist" Russian-speaking civilians of Lugansk, Donestsk and surrounding Donbass communities.

But again, Russia failed to intervene directly or even indirectly so far as could be convincingly demonstrated by the imperialist media. Thus, the Russophobes in Kyiv, Russia's ancient capital, committed a new atrocity: they shot down a civilian airliner killing all 298 innocent civilians on board, while faking evidence to show that the crime had been committed by the Eastern dissidents with direct Russian assistance.

Even the CIA found that hard to stomach and directly refuted Imperial Warmonger in Chief, President Obama, by pointing out that there was no direct Russian involvement in the destruction of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH-17. The Russians went further, revealing that a Ukrainian air-force fighter jet was within air-to-air missile range of the downed airliner at the time of the crash. Moreover, Russia pointed out that the Ukrainian proof of "rebel" responsibility was fabricated and place on YouTube the day before the crash.

So, what to do? Apparently, with the aid of the Guardian, Britain's wholly Zionist/Chatham House controlled news outlet, announce a Russian military incursion into Ukraine, an announcement shortly to be followed by President Porky's triumphant claim that Ukraine had destroyed the Russian force. But now the question arises, did the Russian incursion actually occur, or was it a total fabrication?

The Russians deny any incursion by their forces, and on the face of it, the Ukrainian claim is inherently difficult to believe, quite apart from the total untrustworthyness of the source. If Russia decided to intervene militarily in Donbass, would they not deploy something more significant than a dozen trucks, easily destroyed by Ukrainian artillery, of which an abundance has been moved to the Donbass for the purpose of killing Ukrainians in their own homes. But to find out, we will have to await further developments.

Meantime, the Ukie fascist friends of the Western empire, are deploying white phosphorus against the "subhumans" of Donbass: maybe that will move the Russians to embark on a military intervention on humanitarian grounds. If they do, it will be denounced in the West as an imperialistic adventure that must be repulsed with the full force at NATO's disposal.

Then they demanded that the Russian trucks cary Ukrainian license plates and that each truck carry a Ukrainian representative. Next it will be something else.

You may be confused at what might be behind all of these fairly ridiculous conditions and stalling tactics, so let me explain. The Ukrainians are doing their best to figure out how they can steal the goods from the convoy.

Germany, Slovakia, Greece, Czech Republic Urge End To Russian Sanctions
Trade sanctions were imposed on Russia at the urging of the Empire of Lies, aka Obamastan, on the pretext that Vladimir Putin cold-bloodedly murdered the 298 souls aboard the downed Malaysia Airlines Flight MH-17. Now that it is known that the destruction of MH-17 had nothing to do with Russia or the Russian-speaking Federalist rebels in Eastern Ukraine but was almost certainly an act of mass murder by America's fascist puppets in Kiev, the Europeans look like what they actually are, dupes of the O'Bomber—Fogher Rassmussen lie machines and their oligarch-owned media accomplices. Moreover, they look like really stupid dupes, since the counter sanctions imposed by Russia cause more pain to the EU, both economically and politically, than Europe's sanctions cause Russia. In fact, the Russian economy will likely come out stronger as a result of the reciprocal sanctions, since they will stimulate Russian agriculture, particularly the horticultural sector, while strengthening economic ties with the BRICS nations.

So much for the EU's grovelling submission to the United States of Aggression.

"We haven't received any armored vehicles from Russia. No Russian units, including Russian armored vehicles, have crossed the border. Hence, no Russian armored vehicles could have been destroyed," DPR First Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Purgin told Interfax on Friday evening.

Purgin claimed that, on the contrary, the militias destroyed about 100 Ukrainian armored vehicles.

"A lot of Ukrainian armored vehicles were destroyed today, 7 at one place, 12 at another. And the same all over the DPR territory. A total of about 100 of them," Purgin said.

Harper Government backs Ukraine's Nazi Junta in Crushing Separtists: Quebec Separatists Take Note

Canadian transport delivering "non-kinetic" aid to Nazi forces in E. Ukraine
The Harper government is airlifting shipments of "non-kinetic military equipment" to Ukraine. This is justified as assistance against Russian aggression, but in fact, is military assistance in crushing the Russian-speaking and majority Russian ethnic population of East Ukraine, which sought autonomy within a Federal Ukraine rather than submit to direct rule by genocidal Russophobic Nazi-backed nutters in Kyiv such as Julia Tymoshenko, one of Ukraine's Russophobic billionaires for genocide.

Québecers for a Québec Libre, should take note. Stephen Harper backs the Nazi way with Ukrainians for self-rule, from which suggests that that is the way he'd  deal with Québecers should they ever vote for independence.

Ukrainian Nazis: recipients of Canadian "non-kinetic" military aid. Source
All Canadians for a free and democratic society should take note. Harper, who smears as Nazi, anyone who criticizes the Government of Israel, is in fact an advocate of genocide in Palestine, and a supporter of the ongoing genocide in Ukraine, which has driven 700,000 civilians to seek refuge across the border in Russia, and many thousands more to leave their homes for other parts of Ukraine.

It’s about time we grab our guns and go kill those damn Russians together with their leader; and nuke 8 million Russians who are now exiles in Ukraine.
But don't worry. Canada's rushing to help the Kiev junta ensure that the people of East Ukraine receive no assistance from Russia. Which raises the question: has Canada gone Nazi too, or is it just the imperial arse-lick, Stephen Harper?

Dumb Sanctions on Russia

In his latest Web post, Paul Craig Roberts urges Russia to retaliate against EU-imposed economic sanctions by cutting off the supply of Russian oil and gas upon which Europe depends to satisfy about one third of its total energy needs. Putin, says Roberts, "would not have to turn off the energy supply for very long before Europe tells Washington good-bye and comes to terms with Russia."

Well maybe.

But more likely, in view of the massive economic damage caused by turning off the gas, European states would deem the continuation of Putin`s rule in Moscow intolerable and would be amenable to any actions Washington might propose, even  including all out war, in order to topple Putin and institute a government in Moscow subordinate to Western interests as viewed by Washington.

Moreover, such an outcome is clearly the objective of Washington`s gross provocation of Russia, first, in installing a Nazi-backed regime of mad-dog Russophobes in Kyiv, then by supporting and aiding the Kyiv junta in killing its own citizens in Eastern Ukraine, and then by falsely accusing Russia of complicity in the downing of Malaysia Airlines Fligh MH17, a crime almost certainly attributable to America`s Nazi puppets in Kyiv, most likely with advice and assistance by the large CIA contingent in Kyiv.

Now if Putin can be induced by US-EU sanctions to finally lose his cool and abruptly escalate the conflict with Europe by attacking the very basis of its economic existence, the American objective will be won. Europe will be galvanized to act in any way necessary, up to and including outright warfare, as Washington`s tool in destroying Russian independence. From this, it is difficult to avoid the conclusion that Paul Craig Roberts is either a man of remarkably poor judgement or he is phony dissident acting as an agent of Washington`s NeoCon imperialists.

There is, however, little chance that Putin will escalate the conflict by cutting Europe`s energy supply, which would be tantamount to an act of war, and one guaranteed to destroy for all time Russia`s credibility as reliable trade partner.

Rather, Russia has reacted, and will continue to react, to US and European sanctions by implementing proportionate retaliatory measures that will tend to strengthen Russia`s agricultural, financial and technology industries, without justifying escalation of the conflict.

This does not mean, however, that Russia will be able to avoid military action in Ukraine indefinitely. The criminal violence of the Kyiv regime directed at those in Eastern Ukraine with the temerity to seek a measure of autonomy has created a humanitarian catastrophe, to which Russia, unlike Canada, Australia and the EU states, will not turn a blind eye.

Apparently the US cannot wait for Russia to cut of the gas to Europe and is now urging its Nazi friends in Kyiv to cut the trans-Ukrainian gas lines, thereby delivering the deathblow to the EU economy, that Russia will not.

So how will Germany and the rest of the EU react. Will they, like a wounded snake, lash out wildly at the Russians as the US no doubt hopes and intends, or will they reconsider their attitude with their Nazi Ukrainian neighbor and their American occupiers.

Ukraine’s Dystopian Descent into Military Dictatorship
The Ukrainian state continues its slow-motion collapse, this time with Poroshenko seeking to deal a death blow to the last remnants of the Rada. He has accused “half of the Verkhovna Rada” of being “a ‘fifth column’ which is controlled from abroad, whole factions” after they did not pass a bill labelling Lugansk and Donetsk’s governments as terrorist organizations. Such an action would have granted pseudo-legitimacy to the US in doing the same, with the ultimate intent of connecting supposed Russian support of these entities with “state sponsor of terrorism” status. By his threatening words, Poroshenko is purposely trying to rile up nationalist voters and intimidate any remaining pragmatic politicians in his quest for near-total control over the state, just as an oligarch holds absolute power of his company. Concurrent with this, the West is wholeheartedly supporting Ukraine’s military, although that institution is on the brink of self-implosion as well. The unstable result of these two trends is the dystopian descent of Ukraine towards military dictatorship, all with the enthusiastic backing of the West in its latest anti-Russian crusade. ...
