Kerry plan Kiev Vacation
Headline: “Chicken Comes to Kiev.”
day late and a dollar short as usual. From my understanding, Crimea wants mother Russia in charge? So, what’s the fuss?
“John Kerry will travel to Kiev Tuesday in a show of support for the new Ukrainian government. “
No matter the issue, our government is probably on the wrong side.
Simple. Putin good. Kerry bad.
Recent developments make the Winter Olympics in Sochi seem like ages ago.
Have you been reading the posts here.
Crimea has never been so,oey
The peninsula is the melting pot of the world but the Russian have shipped settlers in and deported or exterminated millions in that region.
Where did you get your propaganda from !
Kerry is showing support for which new Ukrainian government? The one that speaks Russian or the other one?
“The peninsula is the melting pot of the world but the Russian have shipped settlers in and deported or exterminated millions in that region.”
Is there a link for the later part?
Russian President Putin has accepted Chancellor Merkel's proposal to set up a 'fact-finding mission to start political dialogue over Ukraine, German government spokesman, per @Reuters
It's almost funny watching Putin jerk these flaccids chains:
Reading into the Reuters note above:
to a proposal
to set up
a fact-finding mission
a "political" "dialogue (rotflol)
Sure, Angela. I agree to this idea that we should at some time or other set up a group of talking heads to talk about facts related to some of our other groups of talking heads getting together to shoot the bull over the politics of all this.
The Crimean population voted in a referendum to stay with the Ukraine.
All this BS about wanting Russians back is pure Putin KGB propaganda.
Who cares? Crimea is Russian, and has mucho naval assets. Is Putin supposed to just give them up like the impotent douche Obama gave up our most advanced drone to the Iranians/Chinese hackers who brought it down?
So, then, the side we say we're on -- the new Ukrainian government that wants to be part of the EU -- is also the side whose hoped for partner we were bad-mouthing to the fled-Ukrainian president?
Our response: those dastardly Russians were caught TAPING us (bad-mouthing our supposed friends). How DARE they leak that conversation (of us bad-mouthing our friends.)
Is it remotely possible for any administration to be more INEPT, INCOMPETENT, IRRELEVANT than this Obama Administration?
And this is the crew that Hillary set up and that Kerry is commanding!
The Three Stooges: Barry, Hillary & Kerry
You don’t know world history ?
Putin the former KGB head in the USSR.
Stalin intentionally starved to anywhere from 5,7 or 10 million Ukraines because they resisted Russian communist party .
After WW2, Stalin exterminated or deported estimated million Greeks,Turks, Germans Poles, etc... that lived in and around the Crimea and Black sea regions and shipped in Russians .
Just do a internet search on the topic.
Its a bloody history .
It isn’t just Putin’s “favorite” warm water port. It’s Putin’s ONLY warm water port.
Anyone thinks he’s gonna give that up without a fight is a (high ranking member of Obama’s state department)
So, as I predicted, Putin and Merkel are talking.
Hmmm, let’s see. What is there for them to talk about?
Lwow? Grodno? Brest?
Breslau? Posen? Danzig?
It now enters into the realm of settled law,
Did not realize you were thinking that far back.
So you and Putin decided this !
Its nice your quoting Putin propaganda here.
The Crimean people who are not all transplanted Russians decided to stay with the Ukraine.
These people were murdered in the 1940 thru 1950.
So why didn’t Barry’s wire tapping NSA spies catch these bastards who were busily wire tapping our spies, er, diplomats.
Putin was not ever head of the KGB.
How’s that old saying go: “Possession is 90% of the law” (something like that)
Of course he wasn’t. George HW Bush was head of the CIA, however.
Anyways the point is....we were antagonists in all this....stirring the pot....
We congratulate the ELECTED President.....then one week later....disavow him.
Is it possible — I’m just surmising — is it actually possible that Barry isn’t the Messiah, that his Lackey’s aren’t all geniuses, and that the Keystone Cops are a virtual brain trust compared to the minions running our government right now?
I know that’s a revolutionary thought.
But, it appears the ObamaCare WebSite was the High Mark of his Presidency
What difference, at this point, does it make?
Lots of truth there.
your quoting His official Wikipedia here.
why not just quote the Russian Today official bio !
The fuss comes when the Russians start moving west, into the Ukranian-speaking territories.
Sorry Putin just oversaw the lovely East German branch of the KGB in Dresden
You know the ones torturing defectors and shooting woman and children in the back ,
Really a great guy.
Please post it. I’d like to see it. Thanks.
I didn’t say he was a good guy. I said he didn’t come to power through heading the KGB.
More than 20 years ago. Another vote was scheduled before Soros staged a coup.
Putin the former KGB head in the USSR.
Now that's just false. He rose to the rank of Lt. Col. in the KGB. His highest position was station chief in Dresden; after returning from Germany he kept tabs on students and faculty at his Alma Mater.
Quick question - are you getting paid overtime for your work here today?
It isn’t even chess master versus checkers player. Putin v Obama is chess master versus ticktacktoe dilettante
wikipedia is a waste of time.
it is carefully scrubbed unless your a Republican President.
the daily mail bravely reported this piece.
i wonder if the writer us still alive.
Benghazi should have made every “US ally” in the world very nervous. And now the Ukraine should be causing increased pucker factor all along the Warsaw Pact. If Russia can waltz into one nation, what is Bulgaria’s security? Czech’s? etc.
So your justifying an invasion by a ruthless Russian tyrant because he wanted the property ,
Sons guess he took a internal poll lets invade its been 20 years,,
Your not peddling the latest crazy Soros crap too.
Please spare us this crazy talk which sound alike like Paulbot gibberish..
That pic looks odd - not sure if fake or not, but something seems off in it (I’m not talking about the subject matter). Maybe it seems odd because things that (seemingly) should be out of focus, aren’t.
Merkel does not wish to send the Bundeswehr into the Huertgen Forest to chop it down so its wood can make up for the NG Putin will not be sending them if Germany does not play ball.Now if we had gone big for fracking we could make a fortune selling LNG to our European Allies //sarc.
Gee does Putin pay you by the lie posted ?
No I am just keeping the crazies like you upset.
Its hard to post all that Putin propaganda while attending a Paulbot cult session too ,
That is no surprise at all. But ruthless men did not have to come from the KGB. They were everywhere, and the most ruthless rose to the top.
