Ukrainian Ministry Of Defense ^ | 3-4-2014 | UMOD

Posted on 03/04/2014 12:52:00 PM PST by tcrlaf

Ukraine’s Navy Slavutych crew prevented the capture attempt by armed persons.

“Armed persons in a boat came to the ship but the crew repelled their attack. There was even the attempt to board the ship, capture her, arms, and sailors,” informed Capt. 2nd Rank Vitaliy Zvyahintsev, Commander of Surface Ships Brigade, Ukraine’s Navy.

Now things are starting to get interesting. I fear this could be the match to start the fuse of WW III.

You don’t take over a ship with a boat.

Looks like disinformation.

What language would you prefer? Russian—in order to inform them that they or their minion tried to seize the ship?

“You don’t take over a ship with a boat. Looks like disinformation.”

It’s a Civil War. The sides are still breaking down, and people are still trying to be non-violent.

Eventually, it won’t be.

To answer you, I’ll tell you they put it in English so the French can understand it. But you can quit wondering why when you get a higher IQ. That’s why BBC does shows in English.

Yah, I would argue that the presumption is rather strong that a press release in English is intended for an English-speaking audience.

Russian Black Sea Piracy on display.

Their soldiers don’t wear identification and are illegal combatants per Geneva Convention and international law. So it comes as no surprise their sailors also mask their actions in the guise of common piracy.

From the article

“Armed persons in a boat came to the ship but the crew repelled their attack.

It says they had a ship. Look again!

My guess is that the theater of their eventual "capture" has already been negotiated and this is but act one.

I could be, and often am wrong.

Feel free to blow it out of the orifice of your choice....

Noting the release is targeted at an English-speaking audience (The White House and US Media, in particular) isn’t being a “Putin apologist”.

Get over yourself.

Yes, you’re correct. The US White House and the US Media speak English. It’s not often notices. Very sly of the BBC though to uses that slick technique to sway them. You’re on to something comrade. Keep up the good work, and may President-for-Life Putin Bless you.

Again, I am against Putin, Soros, and Obama. I am a piece of work only in the sense that I have worked all my life to pay my way and have worked all my life to understand tyranny. I’m kind of like Eric Hoffer but not as eloquent. So I’ll never champion a tyrant as you do. And, I accept that you, as a foreigner (or as a lowbrow nitwit or whatever you are that makes you so confuse despite your claims that you are a conservative) don’t understand what Putin is doing. And you think that the BBC is being nefarious when it speaks English. My advice to you is to work on the BBC mystery and get back to us with your other insights.

“So I’ll never champion a tyrant as you do.”

Noting a release is directed at an English audience is “Championing a tyrant”????? And save the insults, kid.

I think we’re done here.

Let’s hope you’re done. What time do you go back to class? Noting the BBC release NEWS in English was stunningly brilliant. With that one gem you detected the anti-Putin propaganda that’s been so unfairly used against him. Now, if the BBC starts broadcasting to the USA in say pidgen English we’d think things are normal.

I took it that the release was from the Ukranian Navy and was in english. As much as obama wishes that America was not a Super Power - it is. That is why the protestors had hand made signs in english, the navy puts out releases in english, and Russia will put out its reply in english as well. Some are prompts of “Hey - a little help?”. Putin’s will be a “So what are ya’ going to do about it”.

And what WILL we do about it?

The way obama does things it is all very scattered and to fix the latest emergency. That is very intentional I believe (see the link in my tagline - FDR did the same thing).

And while that may work to get his crisis-of-the-day into the news so he can “fix” it, it does not lend itself to good foreign policy.

I think that, despite your feigned indignation, an explanation might help. Let's take a look at the comment that started it all:

You'll note the release is in ENGLISH? I wonder who that is meant for?

So, I'm curious, who do you think the press release is meant for? George Soros?
