Major Date, Monday 16th Feb 2015 For Agreements?

europe-separatist-movement
Institutional activities are on our watch list for observing agreements that change direction away from the current destructive path. Monday evening will reveal much, as Sunday, 15th Feb 2015, is the date for the cease fire Minsk agreement to be in full effect in the Ukraine region. However, some say that “Minsk-Two-Point-O” (Minsk 2.0) is still unenforceable, and ask who will enforce it? Perhaps that is why the agreement was given some days before going into effect, to possibly get armed institutions in position to stop hostile agents?
Neo-nazis and military contractors in Kiev have been a unchecked violent influence throughout the region.

Meanwhile, further to the West of Ukraine, Greece and the European Union are seeking to reach agreements on funding the debt. Monday, 16th Feb 2015, Greece will face the Loan sharks of the IMF, EC, and ECB, (Collectively known as the Troika).
Greece’s current agreement with the troika, which Syriza says it will not renew, expires on February 28. Eurogroup President Jeroen Dijsselbloem threated Greece, saying that Greece needs to make a request by Monday to get an extension to the bailout program that ends 28th Feb.

Again, we are watching for agreements that hint at the shake up or shake down for future months within the criminal activities of the institutions still at large.
Almost completely drowned out by the media blitz over the Ukraine and Greek crises were the G20 meetings in Istanbul, Turkey.
We recognize the criminal agents and officials within the institutions will not stop their criminality and the roles are playing out as need be… ~Ron

Minsk ceasefire in balance as fighting escalates in eastern Ukraine

Asked about the ceasefire agreed in Minsk, Thunderstorm broke out laughing…

In another ominous note for the ceasefire, Dmytro Yarosh, leader of Right Sector, a Ukrainian nationalist fighting group, said on Friday that any agreement with “pro-Russia terrorists” was “unconstitutional” and that his unit “reserves the right to continue active military operations”. –theguardian.com

“What we want is a deal. But if there is no deal – hopefully (there will be) – and if we see that Germany remains rigid and wants to blow apart Europe, then we have the obligation to go to Plan B. Plan B is to get funding from another source,” he told a Greek television show that ran into early Tuesday. “It could be the United States at best, it could be Russia, it could be China or other countries,” -Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras

Fresh talks begin on forcing Greece to accept austerity package

[…]

The Greek negotiating team is led by Professor Giorgos Chouliarakis, who teaches at the University of Manchester. He is working with debt restructuring advisers from Lazard, a US investment bank. Greece’s main creditors are represented by Declan Costello of the European Commission, Klaus Masuch of the ECB, and Rishi Goyal of the IMF. The troika’s team is led by Thomas Wieser of the Euroworking Group, a hard-line proponent of austerity. –wsws.org

    GREECE, 7TH OF FEBRUARY 2015

    GERMANS,

    THERE ARE SOME THINGS ABOUT YOUR GOVERNMENT THAT YOU DON’T KNOW. I’LL START BRIEFLY.
    YOU JUST NEED TO UNDERSTAND THE FOLLOWING

    1. ON 5TH OF FEBRUARY 2015 YOUR FINANCE MINISTER MR. SCHAEUBLE MET WITH THE GREEK FINANCE MINISTER MR. VAROUFAKIS

    2. MR. VAROUFAKIS TOLD YOUR MINISTER ABOUT GERMAN CORRUPTION, INDICATING THE SCANDAL OF SIEMENS IN WHICH GERMANS WERE INVOLVED AS WELL

    3. ONE DAY LATER HEINZ-JOACHIM NEUBUERGER, A FORMER SIEMENS FINANCE CHIEF, COMMITTED SUICIDE.

    NOW YOU JUST HAVE TO THINK WHY THIS MAN COMMITED SUICIDE AND THINK A LOT ABOUT THE MOMENT HE DID IT. JUST ONE DAY AFTER SOMEONE DARED FOR THE FIRST TIME TO TALK ABOUT GERMAN CORRUPTION.

    YOU CAN FIND LINKS PROVING THE TRUTH OF ALL THIS IN THE INFORMATION BOX BELOW.

    THAT WAS MY BRIEF MESSAGE. IF ARE PATIENT ENOUGH, WATCH SOME MORE TO LEARN SOME THINGS ABOUT YOUR GOVERNMENT(S)

    THE LAST 5 YEARS THEY KEEP TELLING YOU THAT GREECE IS A COUNTRY OF LAZY PEOPLE WHO LIVE WITH YOUR OWN MONEY

    THE TRUTH IS THAT

    1. ALL THIS SITUATION WAS CREATED THANKS TO TRAITORS (POLITICIANS) IN ORDER TO PUT A COUNTRY INTO DEBT AND MAKE BANKS RICHER
    2. THE LENT MONEY DO NOT GO TO GREEK PEOPLE. THEY GO TO BANK COMMISSIONS
    3. THE ONE WHO EARNS MONEY, YOUR MONEY, IS GERMANY. THIS IS ALSO SAID IN A GERMAN SITE, SPIEGEL.DE. ACCORDING TO AN ARTICLE, CRISIS HAS SAVED GERMANY 40 BILLION EUROS. SEE LINK BELOW AS WELL

    YOU USE TO THINK THAT YOU ARE HARD WORKING AND THAT THIS IS WHY YOUR ECONOMY IS HIGH.

    WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW IS THAT YOUR ECONOMY IS HIGH THANKS TO CORRUPTION. YOUR PAST GOVERNMENTS BRIBED OTHER COUNTRIES’ POLITICIANS AND BUSINESSMEN INTO BUYING YOUR PRODUCTS.

    YOUR PRODUCTS ARE NOT THE BEST. THEY WERE SIMPLY PROMOTED ILLEGALLY BECAUSE YOUR POLITICIANS GAVE HUGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY TO OTHER COUNTRIES.

    THIS HAPPENED FOR ONE REASON: THIS WAY GERMANY COULD BE AT THE HEAD OF EE. THIS IS THE REASON WHY PEOPLE TALK ABOUT A NAZISTIC GERMANY AND NAZISTIC EE. MR VAROUFAKIS CHARACTERIZED EE NAZISTIC AS WELL.

    BY THE WAY, DID YOU KNOW THAT YOUR COUNTRY ALSO SOLD TO MINE SUBMARINES WHICH DIDN’T WORK PROPERLY? THEY SAY THEY LEANED. FOR THIS REASON ALSO ONE POLITICIAN OF OURS IS IN JAIL. SEARCH FOR AKIS TSOHATZOPOULOS.

    IN THE PAST, I USED TO THINK THAT THIS HAPPENED ONLY IN GREECE. BUT I WAS WRONG. A PORTUGUESE MAN SAID THAT IT HAPPENED IN HIS COUNTRY AS WELL.

    TO MY SURPRISE, I DISCOVERED THAT GERMANY BRIBED ALSO RUSSIA, LIBYA AND EVEN COUNTRIES OF AFRICA! HUFFINGTONPOST TALKS ABOUT THIS. SEE THE LINK

    WITH ALL THIS I DON’T WANT TO BLAME YOU
    YOU ARE VICTIMS AS WELL. VICTIMS OF YOUR OWN GOVERNMENT.

    THE PROPAGANDA IS HUGE AND THEY MADE YOU HATE OTHER PEOPLE OR BLAME INNOCENT PEOPLE, LIKE US.

    OPEN YOUR MIND. JUST THINK THAT, IF THEY BEAT US, ONE DAY THEY WILL MAKE SLAVES YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN AS WELL.

    THE PLAN IS TO MAKE PEOPLE WORK FOR VERY LOW SALARIES. YOUR COUNTRY IS THE ONE WHICH INVENTED “MINI JOBS” AND THIS IS A VIOLATION OF THE HUMAN DIGNITY.

    DO YOU WANT THIS?

    YOU MUST GO AGAINST YOUR GOVERNMENT, TURN OFF TELEVISION AND START PROTESTING AND SUPPORTING GREECE, SPAIN, PORTUGAL, FRANCE, AS THE FRENCH AND OTHER PEOPLE DO.

    OPEN YOUR MIND.

    DON’T TRUST YOUR GOVERNMENT

    THINK

    HEINZ-JOACHIM NEUBUERGER, A FORMER SIEMENS FINANCE CHIEF, COMMITTED SUICIDE ONE DAY AFTER MR VAROUFAKIS MENTIONED TO MR SCHAUBLE GERMAN CORRUPTION. WHY?

    More Details Behind
    Siemen’s Bribery Scandal
    Revealed
    Scandal-scarred Siemens AG paid millions of euros in bribes to cabinet ministers and dozens of other officials in Nigeria, Russia and Libya as it sought to win lucrative contracts for telecommunications equipment, according to a court ruling that depicts a pattern of bribery by one manager.
    The document, viewed by The Wall Street Journal, offers the most detailed picture to date of the scandal that has ensnared one of the world’s biggest conglomerates in investigations across the globe.

    Ex-Siemens CFO Neubuerger

    commits suicide

    6 February, 2015
    Heinz-Joachim Neubuerger, a former Siemens finance chief, has committed suicide, a friend told Reuters, two months after agreeing a settlement with the company over his role in one of Germany’s biggest corporate bribery scandals.
    Neubuerger, who was 62, was CFO of the German industrial group from 1998 until 2006, during which time Siemens was later exposed as having run an elaborate bribery network, paying more than $1 billion in kickbacks to win contracts worldwide.
    He was questioned during the investigation, which engulfed the company for more than two years and cost the jobs of its top executives and chairman, as well as more than $1.3 billion in payments to settle lawsuits.
    “This seven-year ordeal broke him,” the friend said. “He simply couldn’t go on any longer.”
    Neubuerger denied involvement in the affair but never found another job at the same level as his role at Siemens. He went on to be managing director of KKR Guernsey for two years before quitting to become an independent management consultant.
    In December, he finally reached an agreement to pay Siemens 2.5 million euros ($2.9 million) to settle a civil suit over his role in the bribery scandal. Siemens had initially demanded 15 million.
    Deutsche Boerse, where Neubuerger was on the supervisory board, said in a statement: “We are deeply shocked at the news of the death of our supervisory board member Heinz-Joachim Neubuerger.”
    “We will miss him as a person and as a board member.”

    Red ALERT reminder to the Greek People:

    The political threats are not veiled.
    *From when an angry Eurogroup head, Jeroen Dijsselbloem, barely shook hands with Greece Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis, and bolted off stage in a impolite manner after debt talks…

    *In the press conference with Osborne, who did not commit to anything specific, but Osborne did concede that the Greek-EU financial standoff was becoming “a threat to the global economy.”
    NOTE The Word THREAT…

    *Wolfgang Schäuble’s “hardline” stance is unbudging: insists there would be no debt haircut for Greece, although he did add that he hoped Greece would stay in the eurozone, as it “belonged” there.

    While Greek plans “B” and “C” may be to find funds from outside the Eurozone or Default on the Greek government debt, the reality is that banking loan sharks do not operate that fairly. Read the Confessions of an Economic Hit Man by John Perkins where assassinations and wars are the next level of coercion…

    After reviewing the above events and messages can you say:
    “Clear and Present DANGER!”

    Greece Exposes The Global Economy’s Achilles Heel

    Countries that can’t repay their debts – won’t
    by Chris Martenson Thursday, February 5, 2015, 3:54 PM

    The new Greek political party, known as Syriza, the Coalition of the Radical Left, has done the unthinkable: they’ve dared to speak the truth.

    In this case, the truth is perfectly captured by the blunt assessment by the new Greek finance minister, Yanis Varoufakis, who recently declared “I’m the finance minister of a bankrupt country.”

    Such honest assessments are not supposed to be uttered in politics, no matter how true they may be. And so, as you can imagine, the machinery of the defenders of the status quo is in quite a lather over the whole affair. And it’s doing everything it can to minimize and marginalize the new Greek government.

    One editorial in the Financial Times summed up the establishment view quite well, I thought, putting its contempt for those who dare to simply state what is true right on the table:

    Athens plots a daring escape from the troika

    Feb 2, 2015

    Syriza is as radical as any party to take power within the eurozone. Hardly any of Greece’s new cabinet have experience of government; predictably, its first week was studded with chaotic interventions, including a clumsy blunder into EU-Russian relations. Syriza’s rhetoric is still more suited to a university seminar than a serious programme of government.
    (Source)

    To summarize, the European establishment considers Syriza to consist of radicals with no experience in government who are acting chaotically as they blunder about brandishing immature rhetoric more suited to young students than the serious business of governing.

    And that was just the opening paragraph.

    Why The Ukraine Peace Talks Will Cause War

    Published on Feb 9, 2015
    In this video Luke Rudkowski breaks down the latest developments with the Ukraine conflict as Obama and Merkel meet to decide on arming Ukraine.
    We go through a lot of information very quickly to give you the bigger picture of what happened in Ukraine, we skipped over a lot but will cover this conflict in more detail later on this channel.
    __________________________
    The Ukraine crisis feel like it has been going on for a decade but the violent coup only took place around February 2014
    Above was Luke’s general overview of the conflict, which by the way is more than merely a Ukraine conflict – as the other Eastern Eurasia countries are all affected in a geopolitical agenda with zones, regionalism, and globalism.
    Below is a more detailed view by “Lada Ray“:
    Includes comparative analysis of the situations in Russia and Ukraine, plus, prediction on whether the Kiev-style maidan is possible in Russia.

    Published on Feb 12, 2015

    *Anti-Maidan (anti-color-revolution) groups are forming in several countries (such as Belarus, Kazakhstan, and others) so this is another volatile situation that we should be aware of…
    Here with the Ronmamita blog we have been discussing that some conspiratorial group is beyond the point of no return and will not relent peacefully. Thus, regardless of the peace agreements we do not see the end to armed conflict until funds stop arming the militaries and private military contractors; that (money trail) is the most vital part of the conflict as the U.S. and IMF are involved, but perhaps others are involved as well…

    Intel: US Mini-Nukes Delivered to Ukraine; Poroshenko’s Family Urgently Leaves the Country

    The latest breaking news from Ukraine:

    1. The family of Ukraine president Poroshenko has urgently left the country via a charter flight. This means that the situation in the country is much more unstable than is being portrayed, and the true extent of turmoil is being underplayed. It also means that Poroshenko knows that he may be unseated any moment and has negotiated an asylum for his family with his handlers in the West as part of the Minsk agreement. Instead of flying straight back to Kiev after Minsk, Poroshenko actually went to Brussels first where he had undisclosed conversations with EU politicians, including Merkel and Hollande. Undoubtedly, this is where the asylum was negotiated.

    In one of my 2014 articles I said that I was expecting another Kiev maidan by spring 2015. Yarosh and other ukro-nazis say that they will never observe the Minsk peace agreements and threaten to overturn Poroshenko. Rada is trying to initiate impeachment proceedings. Maidan may be close. Will it happen? I think the wild card right now is Merkel and Hollande. They may spoil the party.

    I had also said previously that I didn’t see Poroshenko surviving in his position for much longer.

    In one of the previous articles’ comment sections we also had a discussion about the potentiality of an even more obvious nazi regime coming to power after Poroshenko is unseated. I am of the opinion that worst case scenario of an openly nazi regime materializing would actually be better, as it would cause the terrible abscess that is today’s Ukraine to come to the surface, ripen and erupt faster. Ukraine, and the world in general, needs this cleansing. The terrible infestation in Ukraine had been festering inside for too long. It has to come to the surface and be expelled. The faster it happens, the sooner people can start the process of rebuilding.

    Read my long-term PREDICTIONS for Ukraine, Russia, USA and more.

    2. Ukraine sources are reporting that since the population is sabotaging the mobilization, Kiev junta is now conducting a forced mobilization. The military board a city bus and tell women to leave, while all the men who remain on the bus get hoarded into trucks and sent to the front. People from Zaporozhie (in central Ukraine, one of the cities that wants to join Novorossia) report that national guard breaks into people’s homes and forcefully hauls off the males into the army.

    All this is happening after Minsk peace agreements have been signed and as ceasefire is supposed to be in effect in Donbass. Meanwhile, Donbass reports that there is no ceasefire and that Kiev army is consolidating its forces and attacking the positions of self-defence. They have again attempted to take the Donetsk Airport, which, according to Minsk accords, is supposed to be part of the DNR territory.

    Kiev has completely abandoned 5,000 of its soldiers cooking in the Debaltsevo cauldron. Kiev denies the very existence of the cauldron and the fact that their forces have been surrounded by DNR and LNR.

    Also see my LRL10. Minsk2 and Ukraine Peace. What do Putin, Merkel, Hollande and Poroshenko want?

    3. German sources report that US military advisors in Ukraine had been busy. According to German intelligence, Americans were able to bring onto the territory of the Debaltsevo cauldron a ‘suitcase’ nuke. It appears US has nothing left to lose after Germany and France broke the ranks and sat down for peace talks with Russia.

    Let’s recall what I’d been saying from the start. The goals of the US in Ukraine are, among others: 1. to put a wedge between Russia and Germany/France/EU; 2. paint Russia as a villain; 3. pit Russia and Ukraine in a hot war, by making Russia send troops to Ukraine.

    The potential false flag involving a mini-nuke inside the Debaltsevo cauldron is supposed to be blamed on Russia. Therefore, Russia gets again painted as a villain that detonates nukes in poor Ukraine. This may result in more EU sanctions and in US delivering those lethal weapons they had been threatening to send.

    Several weeks ago I said that we should expect a massive false flag in Ukraine, something that would be much bigger than MH17. There has been a recent mini-nuke detonation at the chemical plant in Donbass, but apparently, it failed to achieve the desired effect. It is possible they will try again in Debaltsevo. This has to be watched. And as I also said before, if a lot of people talk about it and watch it like hawks, it’s possible to prevent such false flags. Hopefully they will fail.

    According to intel from Ukraine, 4 such American mini-nukes were delivered in 2014 to the Ivano-Frankovsk airport in Western Ukraine. The question is: where will they surface?

    Town of Velikaya Znamenka speaking against the war – Zaporozhie, Ukraine

    http://youtu.be/PQjmwVC_Dts

    Powerful message from this lady (and these people) (English speakers, relax… it’s all subtitled in English). Perhaps this is something to send to “Ukraine/Kiev” supporting Congress people. The accompanying article is here, which I may post later. Found at Lew Rockwell’s FB page.

    This is also a clear indication that many are speaking up and not giving in to those who want to keep wars going (and $$$ rolling).

    Justin Raimondo, AntiWar.com 2-9-15… “Kiev’s Bloody War Is Backfiring”

    Kiev’s Bloody War Is Backfiring

    And the War Party is pushing to prop up their Ukrainian sock puppets

    When Ukrainian army officers came to the Ukrainian village of Velikaya Znamenka to tell the men to prepare to be drafted, they weren’t prepared for what happened next. As the commanding officer was speaking, a woman seized the microphone and proceeded to tell him off: “We’re sick of this war! Our husbands and sons aren’t going anywhere!” She then launched into a passionate speech, denouncing the war, and the coup leaders in Kiev, to the cheers of the crowd.

    [Video: http://youtu.be/PQjmwVC_Dts]

    What she did is now a crime in Ukraine: the only reason she wasn’t arrested on the spot is that the villagers wouldn’t have permitted it. But in Ukrainian Transcarpathia, well-known journalist for Ukrainian Channel 112 Ruslan Kotsaba has been arrested and charged with “treason” and “espionage” for making a video in which he declared: “I would rather sit in jail for three to five years than go to the east to kill my Ukrainian brothers. This fear-mongering must be stopped.” Kotsaba may sit in jail for twenty-three years, the prescribed term for the charges filed against him.

    Kotsaba’s arrest is part of a desperate effort by the Ukrainian government to intimidate the growing antiwar and anti-draft movement, which threatens to upend Kiev’s dreams of conquering the rebellious eastern provinces. Kotsaba’s particular crime, according to prosecutors, was in describing the conflict as a civil war rather than a Russian “invasion.” This is a point the authorities cannot tolerate: the same meme being relentlessly broadcast by the Western media – that an indigenous rebellion with substantial support is really a Russian plot to “subvert” Ukraine and reestablish the Warsaw Pact – now has the force of law in Ukraine. Anyone who contradicts it is subject to arrest.

    Also subject to arrest, and worse: the thousands who are fleeing the country in order to avoid being conscripted into the military. In a Facebook post that was quickly deleted, Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak wrote: “According to unofficial sources, hostels and motels in border regions of neighboring Romania are completely filled with draft dodgers.” President Petro Poroshenko, the Chocolate Oligarch, is readying a decree imposing possible restrictions on foreign travel for those of draft age – which means anyone from age 25 to 60. Ukrainians may soon be prisoners in their own country – but they aren’t taking it lying down.

    Draft resistance is at an all-time high: a mere 6 percent of those called up have reported voluntarily. This has forced the Kiev authorities to go knocking on doors – where they are met either with a mass of angry villagers, who refuse to let them take anyone, or else ghost towns where virtually everyone has fled. In the Transcarpathia region of western Ukraine, entire villages have been emptied, the inhabitants fleeing to Russia to wait out the war – or the fall of the Kiev regime, whichever comes first. “It may seem a paradox,” says Transcarpathia’s chief recruitment officer, “but from the western Ukrainian region of Ternopyl people have fled to Russia in order to escape army conscription.” The frantic Ukrainian regime is now contemplating conscripting women over 20.

    Poroshenko’s military mobilization is due not only to numerous setbacks in the east – Ukrainian troops are being pushed back on all fronts by highly motivated rebels defending their own towns and villages – but also because thousands are deserting, throwing down their arms and fleeing to Russia. In response, the Ukrainian parliament has passed a law authorizing local commanders to shoot deserters on the spot.

    With Poroshenko’s war looking like a major disaster, one that could easily topple his EU/US-installed regime, the War Party in the US is turning up the heat, demanding that Washington provide Kiev with arms. Sen. John McCain is – naturallyleading the charge, but prominent liberals are also in the front ranks, with leading scholars of the Brookings Institution recently calling for heavy weapons to be sent. That provoked a response from a dissident within Brookings, former State Department official Jeremy Shapiro, who argues that the Ukrainian conflict is a civil war that cannot have a military solution, and is more than likely to provoke a dangerous military confrontation with Russia.

    The Obama administration is under considerable pressure from within the President’s own party to start arming the Ukrainian army, but America’s European allies are reluctant to let this war go on much longer, especially now that their sock puppet Poroshenko is increasingly unpopular. With protests erupting all over western Ukraine, Germany’s Angela Merkel is openly opposing escalation of the war. She made that clear at a recent conference in Munich, where Merkel spoke after returning from talks with Russia’s Vladimir Putin and French President Francois Hollande. Meanwhile, on the sidelines, McCain was telling reporters: “If we had provided Ukraine with weapons they wouldn’t have had to use cluster bombs.”

    They don’t call him “Mad John” for nothing.

    The United States is providing the Kiev regime with military training, and we already have American boots on the ground there, ostensibly to “strengthen the rule of law.” What that means in practice is that we are bolstering a government that has declared war on its own people, and is rapidly closing off all legal means of dissent – charging political opponents with “treason,” banning political parties, and unleashing ultra-nationalist mobs on anyone who dares dissent. While the US State Department regularly canoodles with Russian “dissidents” who defile Orthodox churches and bare their breasts for the Western cameras, you won’t hear Marie Harf so much as mention Ruslan Kotsaba’s name. As far as I know, the Global Post is the only Western media outlet that has noted his existence – and I’ve not seen a single mention in English about his arrest.

    Ukraine is a tripwire that could easily set off World War III – and US provocations are edging closer to that by the day. The crisis was initiated by Washington’s regime-change campaign which succeeded in violently overthrowing elected President Viktor Yanukovych, whose electoral victory was made possible by the criminal incompetence and outright thievery of his predecessor, US-supported Viktor Yushchenko. The so-called “Orange Revolution” led to economic chaos, rampant corruption, and the unleashing of a virulent nationalist current that has culminated in the rise of open neo-Nazis taking seats in the Ukrainian parliament. We are seeing its openly fascistic culmination in the current gang lording over Kiev.

    All this was done in the name of sticking a finger in Vladimir Putin’s eye, whose great sin has been kicking out thieving oligarchs and opposing US pretensions to global hegemony. Washington’s ultimate goal is regime-change in the Kremlin, and the reinstallation of a Yeltsin-like sock puppet who, when Washington says “Jump!”, will answer: “How high?”

    That they’re willing to risk World War III in order to achieve their goal underscores the sheer craziness of US foreign policy. The latest official US “National Security Strategy” puts the new cold war at the center of Washington’s military-diplomatic vision – an emphasis so monstrously misplaced that it’s hard to believe they’re serious. Yet you had better believe it: this is what we can expect from a future Democratic administration, if one should come to pass, with Hillary Clinton taking her husband’s Slavophobia – remember the Kosovo war? – to new heights of unreason.

    The US has no business interfering in Ukraine’s civil war, and no legitimate security interest in the question of who gets to administer Crimea – which has been Russian since the days of Catherine the Great. The idea that we are going to confront Russia over this issue is dangerous nonsense – and, unfortunately, it is just the sort of nonsense politicians of both parties find hard to resist.

    There are even some ostensible “libertarians” who can’t resist the temptation to refight the cold war, notably the voluble and well-placed NATO-tarian faction of “Students for Liberty” (SFL), who denounced Ron Paul for his supposedly “pro-Putin” (i.e. anti-interventionist) statements on Ukraine. Ron is appearing at their upcoming “International Conference,” with several of the loudest NATO-tarians in attendance: one hopes he’ll give them a good talking to, although perhaps a spanking is more appropriate for these noisy brats. These juvenile blatherskites claim “Compelling arguments can be made for both advocates of globalist and noninterventionist foreign policy positions,” but aver that “Ron Paul has crossed the line.” It is they who have crossed the line: no libertarian is or can be an advocate of a “globalist” foreign policy – because conquering the globe is, you know, a statist thing.

    Of course now that Ukraine – where SFL held a conference – is jailing draft-resisters and clamping down on all dissent, we don’t hear a peep from these adolescent cold warriors. They talk a lot about “liberty,” but not in places where it can get them into trouble.

    The main danger to liberty and peace in the world isn’t in the Kremlin, or Peking, or North Korea – it’s right here in these United States of America, in the global epicenter of evil otherwise known as Washington, D.C. This, our “libertarian internationalists” claim, is vulgar “anti-Americanism,” but these foreigners have little conception of what true Americanism is all about. The Founding Fathers of this country are rolling in their graves as the usurpers in Washington sully the good name of America with the blood of innocents worldwide and defile the Constitution in the process. True Americanism means opposing these monsters as they rampage over the earth and destroy our civil liberties at home – not dutifully echoing their rationalizations for endless wars of aggression.

    Important Addendum: If you’ve been to our front page, instead of coming directly to this space, you’ll note that we are in the midst of an emergency fundraising campaign – with emphasis on the word emergency. No, I won’t bore you with the usual give-us-money-now boilerplate: I just want to point out one important and quite pertinent fact.

    The case of the above-mentioned Ruslan Kotsaba is being reported exactly nowhere in the Western major media. I repeat: nowhere. The German media has picked up on it, and the Japan Times has a story about it. This somewhat obscure news service, which seems to be centered on overseas news, is carrying a brief story. A very teeny tiny item mentions it on Radio Free Europe, the US government funded propaganda mill, but naturally gives zero details. And that’s about it. You probably won’t read much about it in the “mainstream” media – even though Kotsaba is himself a journalist, and you’d expect other journalists to pay attention.

    Except when we’re in the midst of a new cold war with Russia and the propaganda mill is furiously turning.

    You’ll only read about it right here, at Antiwar.com – and that, I’m afraid, is the horrible truth. Yes, it’s depressing, especially if you read the transcript of the “court” hearing, which has all the judicial credibility of a Stalinist show trial. A government that we are giving billions to, and which may shortly be armed by our rotten government, is jailing journalists for the “crime” of engaging in forbidden speech. And it’s being done in the dark, behind a curtain of silence – a silence maintained by the English-speaking “Fourth Estate.”

    Help us keep the truth in front of the American people – don’t let Antiwar.com go. Because it’s needed now more than ever. Make that tax-deductible donation right now. Because the truth matters.
