Ukraine accuses Russia of orchestrating separatist moves
Reuter's ^ | 8 Apr 14 | Richard Balmforth and Lina Kushch

Posted on 04/08/2014 1:18:29 AM PDT by elhombrelibre

Police detained 70 people occupying a regional administration building in eastern Ukraine overnight, but pro-Moscow protesters held out in a standoff in two other cities in what Kiev called a Russian-led plan to dismember the country.

Kiev says the seizure of public buildings in eastern Ukraine's mainly Russian-speaking industrial heartland on Sunday night is a replay of events in Crimea, the Black Sea peninsula Moscow annexed last month.

Hey, that could become the FReeper Putinista anthem. As you know, Putin reinstated that anthem - The International. Since so many pro-Putin FReepers want to act like the old left applauding and cheering on Putin and his self-aggrandizement the way the old left did Lenin and Stalin, they might as well go whole hog. Putin went from being a KGB Colonel commie and these “conservatives” on this site so fond of Putin can meet him half way and sing the commie anthem.

People are all over the map these days (Literally!) because we lack the position of strong political leadership.

Good one. Do you see the Putinistas like the Brit who built the fine bridge?

As if the coup in Kiev wasn’t orchestrated by Obama, Soros, and the sodomite EU.

Oh, it’s you again - Putin’s favorite propagandist and catamite. Are you smitten with him?

No, but the men he is up against - Obama, Soros, and the sodomite Globalists of the EU - are wrecking my country just like they are wrecking Libya, Syria, Greece, Sweden, Ukraine and countless other nations. F them and anyone that supports them.

Question can be asked, are you smitten by Soros? You sure want to do his bidding.

I for one am sick of the US being the policeman of the world, it hasn`t worked out very well lately.

But I suppose if we economically collapse because of American militarism, well guys like you will just sprinkle American Exceptional Pixie Dust and *POOF* we`re right as rain again!

What worries me is the way these armchair generals piss and moan about the 17 trillion plus debt when it OBozo throwing away our economic future, but the military adventurist, “We`re flush with funds, just monetize a few more trillions.”

You do remember the zombie Beta Test during the shut down? You know, when all those EBT cards suddenly went from thousands of dollars to $0.00. But that won`t happen in a military driven collapse, right?

That’s not The Internationale. The lyrics of the current Russian National Anthem were changed from the Soviet one. It even mentions the word “God” for what it’s worth.

Germany still uses that Nazi-era anthem, just a different verse than the “Deutschland, Deutschland Uber Alles” one.

Where did you do your time as a policeman? I imagine you’re just fatigued. Get some rest. And look under the bed first. Soros might be under there.

Fears of Putin are real. But don’t worry. You won’t have to be a policeman.

You still didn’t answer the question about a militarist driven economic collapse? What, no Soros talking points to quote?

What do you mean? Who is collapsing? Are you taking your meds? You know you may be on the wrong website if you’re using the old leftist critique of America.

So we aren`t 17 trillion in debt? You ever heard of the Petro-Dollar? Try doing some reading, your lack of knowledge is shocking.

Okay, if someone disagrees with you they lack knowledge. I guess that’s not a leftist trait. Yes, I couldn’t agree more on Obama’s harm to our economy. It’s now $17.5 trillion, by the way. Yeah, I heard about the Petro-Dollar and OPEC too. What grade are you in?

You are the one avoiding the question with attacks. Too tuff for you? Keep name calling then, you`re obviously not willing to debate it.

Yeah, you’ve got me spooked. What was your question? Was it if Soros is under your bed? Was it about the military industrial complex and the New Left critique of the American Empire?

The tune sounds like it was stolen from a 2008 song praising Barack Obama.
