Seems quiet out there. Russia invades a country one door down from the EU and crickets from the left. No cries of killing Putin and his family, no signs, No human shields....nothing.
Fuel supplies. Don’t piss Putin off or there may be a, uh, “disruption” in fuel deliveries to the eu. Blame would probably go to Chechan rebels. Kinda like a “who controls the energy” kind of thing. Hmmmmm. Where have we heard someone talk about energy control before.................
Too busy waiting for salvation from across the sea.
Evil natural gas and oil....America is bad for drilling but take it away from those that thinks it’s evil...fear and darkness!
"Protests" target the perpetually guilty, looking for a reason to yield.
Why were 99% of protests in the two Germanys against the US? Why were there no protests in the "third Germany" (now Poland and Russia)?
You don't organize "protests" against a hungry bear. You just don't.
Russian Army maps still have the roads to Berlin highlighted.
No need to protest. They all know Emperor Canigula will put a stop to it in the next century or so.
For one thing, Russian gas keeps Europe from freezing to death in the winter. A war in Ukraine would be a disaster for Europe.
I believe the EU countries already placed sanctions on the Ukraine...whatever that means....
I doubt your average dumbassed ‘peace protester’ thinks that deeply. They are simply reflexively anti-western.
Our strength is our quickness and our brutality. Genghis Khan had millions of women and children hunted down and killed, deliberately and with a gay heart. History sees in him only the great founder of States. What the weak Western European civilization alleges about me, does not matter. I have given the order and will have everyone shot who utters but one word of criticism that the aim of this war does not consist in reaching certain designated [geographical] lines, but in the enemies' physical elimination. Thus, for the time being only in the east, I put ready my Death's Head units, with the order to kill without pity or mercy all men, women, and children of the Polish race or language. Only thus will we gain the living space that we need. Who still talks nowadays of the extermination of the Armenians?
Sadly, that is an entirely bogus quote. Really. Even though it’s been “quoted” a million times on the internet, there is no evidence that Hitler ever said it or wrote it. It first “appears” long after Hitler was dead.
“The problem with internet quotes is that so many of them are false.” -—Abraham Lincoln
Would we give up Hawaii and our naval bases there if native Hawaiian radicals took over downtown Oahu and ordered us out?
Must look into this
I've seen the putative original German quote
But of course, it could also be synthetic
It’s TOTALLY synthetic. Trust me.
I almost put a bogus Cicero quote at the front of a book. At the last moment I decided to really check it out in depth. It was the one you have seen many times about the traitor inside the walls being worse than an external enemy etc. Totally bogus. It made me very careful about quotes. Half of the “Jefferson quotes” I see are bogus.
Your point on fuel supplies is correct. I’d advance that thought to add it’s just another example of hoping the alligator eats them last.
They never got involved in Yugoslavia, why should they get involved in Ukraine?
The Russians are not a military threat to the EU.
The Russian power over the EU is via those gas pipelines, not tanks or jets.
The maps above tell more truth than the media reports.
Thanks for posting. A picture is worth 10,000 words in this case.
Jefferson is the wrong person to ever quote because the next week he said the opposite.
Thankfully the “lyin’ king” has admonished Putin and I’m sure Vlad is rethinking his options. Nah. Probably not so much. Probably more like ROTFLHAO. We know he thinks the “lyin’ king” is just a tres-gone like punk.
The protesters are anti-western liberal democracy. Russia is anti-western. Pretty simple.
I remember seeing “anti-war” protests in Holland during the Iraq invasion. The Dutch protesters marched practically past an American WW2 cemetery. The irony was totally lost on those pinkos.
We see political calculations in everything the left does. The enemy of my enemy is my friend they think. Thus, no protests when a KGB thug goes on a rampage.
The leader of the free world has gone to bed with the vapours.
As he lays curled up in the fetal position hugging his Nobel Peace prize and sucking his thumb he is consoled by dreams of swinging cuts in the US military.
Do we need to say more about leadership?
The slaughter went on for quite a while before anyone got involved. In fact, the shame of what was happening in europe’s backyard, is what finally got to be too much for us to ignore.
Never trust someone who says "Trust Me" /duck
I was going to say. Europe wants to be warm next winter.
It could be worse - Obama could have turned his attention toward “saving” the Ukraine from itself...
I agree. But I have dug into the “Hitler” quote and it’s false. It’s even worse than the old false versions, attributed to some “found letter” from a conference etc. The new bogus “Hitler” quote adds the ghengis khan stuff that I have never even seen before the false “who remembers the Armenians” quote.
Thats it exactly. And is why no one cares what Putin is up too.
Probably because they have their own problems and helping George Soros and the Oligarchs loot Ukraine is not high on their priority queue.
“Would we give up Hawaii and our naval bases there if native Hawaiian radicals took over downtown Oahu and ordered us out?”
If they are Hawaiian and Oahu is Hawaiian how does that make them radicals? We did take it by armed force, low down shenanigans and outright murder to begin with. What I mean is that it’s tough sh*t but it is their land.
I heard one radio news report yesterday say that a group (didn’t give a number) of Ukranians were protesting outside the WH gates.
I haven’t dug around in the issue enough to try to find the hand of Soros but it does seem to fit the usual globalist pattern. Break up nations into small pieces so they are weakened and then bring them under some kind of international control.
To me it never seemed Organic like the nearly ignored unrest in Venezuela.
So, you think the U.S. military would leave Hawaii if a mob of native Hawaiians stormed and occupied some govt buildings in Oahu and demanded it?
Don’t forget Obama was born in Hawaii. He liked to keep the White House toasty warm.
Is that sulfur I smell?
Commies’ specialty is hell on earth, so probably.
OK, I'll wax poetic. I think we are looking at concerned but potentially terrifying dichotomy setting up. Putin has Barry by the balls. Vlad knows that Barry and his minions are no more a threat to him than persistent yipping Yorkies, desperately snapping at his heels.(apologies to small breed owners). Wait until the rest of the modern day dictatorships decide that Vlad shouldn't be the only one having fun with the completely neutered, once mighty USA. The Chinese, North Koreans, Iran will all want in.
The other side of the equation is that the rest of the so called civilized world just realized that the same USA, usually dependable, will not be bailing anyone out of this or saving anyone’s bacon . The Iron Fist and dictators are laughing their butts off, almost pitying Barry and his testicle impaired, clueless pack of miscreants.
May we all live in interesting times. The world is on it's own. Bad Barry has checked out.
True enough, China is the threat that shouldn’t be ignored.
