While having lunch at a local eatery on Thursday, the television was on and the area news channel was spewing the same lies and State Department talking points on the vilified Russian leader Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. The patrons at the lunch counter were all staring into the electronic crackpipe as they mentally digested the daily dispersal of bullshit while I nearly choked on my 5.99 blue plate special meatloaf. Things have never been what they are sold as in Ukraine, anyone who is inclined to stay informed can easily do so in the era of the internet and social media. But despite the overwhelming propaganda that has been disbursed in the insane and desperate efforts to shore up the useless Cold War dinosaur NATO and wage a neocon concocted proxy war against Putin, events in Ukraine appear on the brink of getting very interesting.
Journalist Michael Collins, in a piece published at OpEd News entitled “Fascists Units and Regular Army Head for Kiev-Maidan Anti Gov Protests” writes of events on the ground as defeated junta troops and fascist thugs are returning to Kiev in droves. They are angry that US-EU-NATO Axis of Aggression backed junta has betrayed them. I excerpt the following at length from his excellent piece:
Ukraine may be headed for another round of Maidan Square protests that dwarf those seen in February. Regular army soldiers and special fascist punisher battalions are leaving the battle field with a very bad attitude toward the government of United States puppet, President Petro Poroshenko.
Things are not going well for the United States backed government in Kiev, Ukraine. Early last week, President Poroshenko spoke confidently of wrapping up the so-called Anti Terrorist Operation (ATO) in the eastern part of the country by August 24, Ukraine’s independence day. Instead of a victory parade after pummeling the large eastern cities of Donetsk and Lugansk into the ground, eastern resistance forces upstaged the Kiev celebration. The militia of the Donetsk Peoples Republic marched captured Kiev army troops down the main street of that city in their own independence celebration. Poroshenko’s conquest was foiled.
By the end of August, the Ukraine central government could no longer deny significant military losses at the hands of the resistance in the eastern part of the country. Thousands of government troops have been trapped in resistance cauldrons. Army forces face a stark choice: surrender and hand over your weapons and equipment or attempt to fight your way out and die. In the Southern Cauldron, most of the six thousand Ukraine troops were injured, killed, or surrendered. That process has repeated itself over the past few weeks in other battles and cauldrons.
As Kiev’s military disaster became more evident, President Poroshenko spoke of a Russian invasion, at least that’s what the mainstream media tried to sell us. However, this was an exaggeration based on a translation error or misunderstanding. The Kiev government needs the Russian bogeyman to explain the rapid change from promised military victories to resounding defeats at Krasnyi Luch, Ilovaysk, Lugansk, and Donetsk.
While Poroshenko blames the Russians and the U.S. and EU shamelessly echo the allegations of a Russian invasion before their NATO meeting, the soldiers of the Ukraine have their own strongly held beliefs. This documentary news footage reveals makes clear the depth of the feelings of betrayal. They’re angry and they plan to join the protest already underway in Kiev’s Maidan Square, the sight of the violent riots that chased the elected President of Ukraine across the border to Russia.
Protests in Maidan Square in early August turned violent. That action was quelled and the square was cleared of protesters, to some extent, by August 9. Quickly, people returned to protest the failed policies of the government.
The threat of real army troops joining the protests may spell the end of the U.S. backed Poroshenko government. It has the potential to turn the capital into a bloodbath far in excess of anything seen in the lead up to the U.S. backed coup of late February.
A commentator pointed out that the original protesters committed acts of violence with fires, rocks, and anything they could get their hands on to literally beat Kiev security forces. This time, the protesters will have guns.
Nazis have historically found the old “stabbed in the back” fairy tale to be particularly useful in justifying their violence. They are heading to Kiev now, bloodied and humiliated by an insurgency that was largely motivated by survival and they are pissed. It is an interesting play on the finale of William L. Shirer’s classic history of the Nazis which started off with “The war came home to Germany”. Just substitute “Kiev” for “Germany” and enjoy the show as mobs will again fill the Maiden only this time it will be the asses of the U.S. puppets Arseniy “Yats” Yatsenyuk and Petro “the Chocolate King” Poroshenko whose heads they will want mounted on pikes.
Obama and his neocon infested State Department have really created a mess in Ukraine and El Presidente’s stopover at the great NATO conference this week continues to underline the fact that one of the U.S. chief executive’s critical job requirements is to pimp for American defense contractors. Just like in the great Nicholas Cage movie “Lord of War” in the critical scene where Cage’s international arms dealer Yuri Orlov explains to Agent Jack Valentine who has appears to have finally got his man: “..the biggest arms dealer in the world is your boss, the President of the United States, who ships more merchandise in a day than I do in a year.” This is what Barry is slumming around with Eurotrash like Fogh Anders Rasmussen and his ilk for, it’s just more out front now – and then there is of course the golf course. The pigs of NATO are conveniently holding their big whoop-de-do this year at the Celtic Manor Golf Resort where they can spend plenty of time jacking-each other off between holes.
Friday also was the day that a cease fire agreement was reached in Ukraine, seems like Porshenko is ready to cry uncle and start planning his escape before the rabble is surrounding his palace. Both he and that chicken-legged little twit “Yats” are likely in full Martin Bormann mode because hell is coming back to the Maiden. I excerpt again from Collins’ excellent piece “Fascists Units and Regular Army Head for Kiev-Maidan Anti Gov Protests”:
The head of Right Sector, one of the fascist political organizations, announced that today his party would join the Maidan protests demanding accountability from the standing government for shortcomings that contributed to defeats in the east. Just two weeks ago, Right Sector leader Dmytro Yarosh, had called for protests in Maidan as a result of discrimination against his organization. Yarosh was the protest leader who lead the refusal to honor the deal that would have ended the February Maidan protests peacefully.
Right Sector’s Azov Battalion is one of several punitive battalions attacking civilian centers in the eastern Ukraine. Aidar, Dnepr, and Donbass are other punitive battalions. As George Eliason pointed out in his first hand account of events in Novorussia (i.e. eastern Ukraine), the punitive battalions perform a Punisher/Cleansing function “from village to village and city to city after [they are] cleared of militia. Their only purpose has been the mutilation and mass murder of defenseless, unarmed people” (OpEdNews.com Sep 2). These are the very troops leaving the battle front in the east, carrying their weapons with them, to join the new Maidan protests.
The courageous George Eliason, an American who lives in Ukraine has provided in his latest dispatch a good idea of the type of sadistic vermin and scum that are coming home to Papa Poroshenko in his piece “My Encounter with Ukrainian-American Nazi Mark Paslawsky: What He Died For” which is also at OpEd News along with George’s other fine work. In his piece George describes the harrowing situation in Ukraine, which is nothing like the electronic sewage that is fed to Americans by a corrupt, corporate state media. In particular the “punisher” units that Collins writes of. I excerpt from Mr. Eliason:
The Donbas Battalion and Symeon Sementchenko are not regular army, nor have they been directly involved in heavy combat until recently. Donbas battalion is a Punisher/ Cleansing Battalion that goes from village to village and city to city after it is cleared of militia. Their only purpose has been the mutilation and mass murder of defenseless, unarmed people.
In my articles updating the events of the war I have mentioned the mass murder, torture, and mutilation Sementchenko’s Donbas battalion has left in its wake on a number of occasions. It is responsible for cutting the hands and feet off live people before killing them.
In the village of Snowy they took males age 14-60 suspected of sympathizing with the referendum or militia (now Novo Russiya Army) into the street and shot them in cold blood. They routinely tortured people for information. In the town of Friendly, the Donbas battalion shot into the houses and murdered everyone they thought were sympathetic to the referendum.
In early July, Oleg Dube, one of Donbass Battalions more committed volunteers fighting “separatists” had a falling out with Sementchenko because of the murder and cowardice displayed by the battalion in Nikolaeka. On his facebook page on July 7th he wrote : When they entered Nikolaevka, there were only unarmed townspeople there. They knew going in there was no militia. He describes the battalion filled with cowards shooting everything that moved and throwing grenades into the houses, cellars, and every structure, killing everyone and everything they came across.
Sementchenko attested to the authenticity himself by posting his answer to Oleg Dube. “Who is in the Military Prosecutor’s Office? In wartime such allegations are unacceptable. Religious strife in the battalion will not be tolerated.” He then stated that if people believed it, they were losing the information war.
Oleg Dube was arrested and detained in Izyumske. Later on to make a point to the battalion, Sementchenko reportedly made him kneel in front of the battalion and urinated on him.
The grotesque nature of the neo-Nazi murderers and torturerss that the Obama administration has backed is a shameful blot on the pissed-away for chump change legacy of this once great country. Not even Bush and Cheney ever went so far as to back neo-Nazis as Obama has but when a top adviser is the psychotic anti-Russian fanatic Zbigniew Brzezinski it is not hard to understand how a man with no soul like Obama could be the U.S. president who would bring back the horrors of Nazism to Europe.
And where in the fuck are those satellite images of the shooting down of MH17?
