This is nothing but a hostile takeover by an chauvinistic Putin. People who cannot see that would have seen Hitler as ...well, as Pat Buchanan sees him.
What did people think would happen when a Soros and sodomite soviet EU backed gang of Neo-Nazis overthrew the legitimate government of Russia's most important neighbor and strategic ally? That Putin would go into a corner and sulk?
Isn't that one of those Russian brides lines?
That doesn't seem to both you, however.
The Russian Federation,
the European countries and
the US and UK
are all co-investors in the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, to the tune of billions of Euros.
The EBRD website shows several billion euros invested in Ukraine.
This whole situation is a partnership squabble due to the West not being sure to guarantee Russia’s port before they manipulated Ukrainian politics over the past 20 years in order to annex Ukraine into the EU.
The US State Department (Victoria Nuland, on youtube) brags that it has spent $5 billion on “helping Ukraine realize its European aspirations”.
The minions of the financial elites certainly do come up with the most creative euphemisms.
Russia wants to keep its naval port clearly under its control. If Russia loses that key port, it will dramatically weaken Russian naval capabilities. Russia already has nowhere near the fleet the US Navy has. Actually, you’d think the neocons would realize that if Russia becomes militarily weak enough, the whole “game” of spending hundreds of billions on cool military stuff to stay ahead of them is in jeapordy.
Meanwhile, the US/UK/Euro nations, at the behest of financial elites, want to bring Ukraine under the EU legal and financial umbrella. They want to do this because although they are already doing billions in business in Ukraine, the financiers of course want to have the options of forced austerity, EU tax/legal regimes, etc., at their disposal, which they can wield over the Ukrainian people through the puppet Ukrainian government they’ve set up.
Just ask Greece. If your parliament can’t pass austerity laws, we’ll force austerity on you. Signed, your buddies at the EU.
Obviously the elite financiers of the world are stumping for political support in the West for a civil war to break Ukraine in two, which would give Russia its port and the rest to the West. The war will be painful for the Ukrainian sheeple, but eh, such is life. Wars happen. We are your elite masters, and we know that in the long run, having EU laws is worth the pain of a civil war. Signed, your buddies at elite globalism.
If they can’t rouse up the neocons and get public support for stirring up a war in Ukraine, it has to be a black op, and US politicians, if the truth comes out later, would have blame for the op laid at their feet, instead of being able to blame the public outcry for war to help the beleagured Ukrainians with their $5 billion worth of European aspirations.
Unfortunately, the pro-any-war part of the American political scene is shrinking, as the US sheeple gradually wake up to the fact that they’re being lead by financier’s minions in politician’s clothing.
