More than ONE MILLION migrants hoping to cross to Europe are 'in the pipeline' in Libya: Senior diplomat warns EU has done 'too little, too late' to tackle the crisis

More than 1 million migrants are ‘in the pipeline’ in Libya hoping to cross to Europe, a senior diplomat has warned.

Joseph Walker-Cousins, former head of the British Embassy Office in Benghazi, said refugees were massing in the war-torn country having fled conflict and poverty.

Criminal human trafficking gangs are raking in billions of pounds charging migrants large sums to be smuggled across the Mediterranean in flimsy dinghies and boats.

‘EU is particularly good at doing a terrible job’ – Yanis Varoufakis

Former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis has described the measures taken by the EU to settle the economic crisis in Greece as a “terrible job.” The comment comes as Greece agrees to new reforms that are set to help the country qualify for cheaper loans.

“Isn’t it yet another piece of evidence that the European Union is particularly good at doing a terrible job, but handling what should be a very manageable crisis,” Varoufakis told CNN on Tuesday.

He noted that, in fact, the goals set for Athens are nearly impossible to reach. “The people at the IMF [International Monetary Fund]… told us that the Greek debt is unsustainable and the austerity that is being [imposed] upon Greece is catastrophic for the program itself.”

The ECB’s Illusory Independence

A commitment to the independence of central banks is a vital part of the creed that “serious” policymakers are expected to uphold (privatization, labor-market “flexibility,” and so on). But what are central banks meant to be independent of? The answer seems obvious: governments.

In this sense, the European Central Bank is the quintessentially independent central bank: No single government stands behind it, and it is expressly prohibited from standing behind any of the national governments whose central bank it is. And yet the ECB is the least independent central bank in the developed world.

Swedish Feminists Flee Suburbs Due to Islamic Fundamentalists

Nalin Pekgul is a self-described feminist and former member of parliament for the left wing Swedish Social Democrats. For over 30 years, she lived in the Stockholm suburb of Tensta but says that she no longer feels safe there. She claims Muslim fundamentalists have taken over and she doesn’t feel she can visit the centre of Tensta without being harassed, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports.

According to Ms. Pekgul, the situation for women in public life in the area has deteriorated over the past several years. She noted that there has been a rise in religious fundamentalism amongst the men in the area, many of whom come from migrant backgrounds. Pekgul attempted to combat the trend by organising coffee shop meetings but soon abandoned the idea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "first feminist gov't of the world" threw open the door to migrants...and now they no longer feel safe!

‘They’re bound by their OWN RULES!’ EU's Brexit negotiation SHAFTED by its own legislation

THE European Union’s Brexit bargaining position has been significantly weakened because of an article in the Lisbon Treaty stating neighbouring countries must be treated with “neighbourliness” and be allowed to prosper.

Article 8 of the Lisbon Treaty states: “The Union shall develop a special relationship with neighbouring countries, aiming to establish an area of prosperity and good neighbourliness founded on the values of the Union and characterised by close and peaceful relations based on cooperation.”

The very notion of a hard, punishing Brexit has seemingly been rendered obsolete by one of Brussels’ own documents, according to the Director of the Bruges Group, Robert Oulds

German MEP orders Britain to cut off COMMONWEALTH STATES in latest Brexit demand

A GERMAN MEP is calling on Britain to rescind its relationship with a plethora of Commonwealth states as negotiations continue with Brexit.

The MEP is demanding the UK Government cancel all existing tax haven policies, meaning it would have to cut its relationships with key partners in the Commonwealth in an early Brexit demand.

Prime Minister Theresa May would have to cut off ties with the Cayman Islands, the British Virgin Islands, Jersey and the Isle of Man if it was to listen to the German MEP.

Almost two and a half billion people live in the 52 independent and equal sovereign states which make up the group whose head is Her Majesty The Queen.

The states all currently trade with Britain, albeit under existing European Union (EU) rules and regulations.

EU Leader Juncker will promote independence of Ohio and Texas

In an extraordinary speech the EU Commission president said he would push for Ohio and Texas to split from the rest of America if the Republican president does not change his tune and become more supportive of the EU.

The remarks are diplomatic dynamite at a time when relations between Washington and Brussels are already strained over Europe’s meagre contributions to NATO and the US leader’s open preference for dealing with national governments.

NEW WORLD DISORDER – DISINTEGRATION STAGE COMMENCES

The mainstream media has a new in vogue phrase and you are sure to have heard it by now – ‘the rules based international order (or system)’. The Royal Institute of International Affairs based in London, commonly known as Chatham House commented a several years ago that “Economic and political upheavals are emboldening challengers to the rules-based international system, and to the liberal Western values it embodies. To stay relevant, the system must address three major flaws.”

SENATE APPROVES MONTENEGRO JOINING NATO DESPITE RAND PAUL’S OBJECTION

Despite a last-minute objection by Senator Rand Paul, who was in turn labeled an agent of Vladimir Putin by Senator John McCain, the Senate has approved Montenegro’s accession to NATO to “send a message” to Russia.
“With Russia’s resurgence and quest for renewed great power status, NATO has given notice that it will stand up for Western democracies too — and has continued to do so,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said after the Senate approved Montenegro’s accession to NATO.

The vote was 97-2 in favor of accession, with only Paul and Utah Senator Mike Lee voting no.

Paul previously took to the floor to object to an effort by McCain to approve Montenegro’s accession without a roll call vote, questioning the wisdom of the United States continuing to shoulder the costs of defending countries with poorly-funded militaries.

In response, McCain took to the Senate floor and accused Paul of “working for Vladimir Putin.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's take a look at a map, shall we?!?

Map: Montenegro & Surrounding Countries

This granting of NATO membership process to Montenegro gives NATO a great "toehold" in the Adriatic Sea, and cements the process of drawing more and more Eastern European countries, which used to be in the Russian sphere of influence, into the western sphere of influence.

This also provides a greater staging area, should NATO and the US decide to attack Russia from the Western part of Eastern Europe.

Unfortunately, when Senator Mc Cain makes statements like he did, accusing Rand Paul of “working for Vladimir Putin”, because Paul objected to this, he appears to be more and more unhinged mentally, and it is a shame that there is no provisions for Senators like the 25th Amendment has, for when the President can no longer mentally, or physically, do their job.

Pound jumps against euro as Germany’s inflation data shocks markets

Sterling lifted by 0.8 per cent against Europe's economy to 1.1643, after the cost of living in Europe's largest economy came in at 1.5 per cent - tumbling from 2.2 per cent in February.

Markets had expected an inflation reading for March of around 1.9 per cent, with the shock leading to euro sell-offs.

The ECB's huge current money-printing programme has been designed to stoke rising prices and kick the economy into action.

‘The fool!’ Farage tears into Juncker threat to break up US over Trump support for Brexit

Reacting to the speech Mr Farage, who has become a close personal friend of the US President, told express.co.uk: “Juncker has made a complete fool of himself.

“He clearly does not understand the difference between the EU and the United States of America. One was formed by consent while the other is being imposed.

“The US is an organically formed nation with a single language and similar culture while the cultural and linguistic differences in the EU are immense.

“If this is what Juncker calls diplomacy, he needs to take a long hard look at himself.”

EU ‘Ready to Intervene’ If Bosnia Violence Erupts

EU and NATO officials are warning against any new moves for secession by autonomous regions within Bosnia, with the EU in particular insisting that they are ready to intervene rapidly if such secessionist ambitions lead to violence in the nation.

The Republika Srpska government, ruling the ethnic Serb-dominated region, has been warning the central Bosnian government against moves against their autonomy, saying that they intend to organize a secession referendum as soon as 2018.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, the EU and NATO are ready to go in to this region, guns blazing, should they DARE to have a referendum on secession.

Whatever, please, happened to the concept of "peaceful self determination"?!? Is that not applicable when such a concept is NOT to the liking of the EU and NATO?!?

Apparently, not!!

US Senate votes overwhelmingly in favor of Montenegro’s accession to NATO

The US Senate ratified the protocol on Montenegro’s accession to NATO on Tuesday with 97 votes in favor and two against. The only two "no" votes came from Republican Senators Rand Paul and Mike Lee. Paul delayed the vote for months by refusing to allow a quick vote, proposed by John McCain. Paul argued during a Senate session Monday that Montenegro’s NATO membership will not improve the security of the United States, but, on the contrary, will oblige Washington to intervene militarily in case of a conflict. "There is no national security interest that an alliance with Montenegro will advance," Paul said Monday. "Most Americans couldn't find Montenegro on a map. Are you willing to send your kids there to fight?"...

The Dollar Dump Begins: “China, Japan, Belgium, Switzerland and Saudi Arabia Have All Become Big Sellers”

As global financial markets teeter on the edge of collapse, a report published this morning suggests that the run up in the U.S. dollar may be over. As of today, some 80% of post-Trump election gains have been wiped out and as noted in the special video report from Future Money Trends below, it appears that things are only going to get worse:

China sold more U.S. Treasuries last year than any country has ever sold in a single year… $188 billion worth… Japan is also making an exit, selling nearly $30 billion since election day… Belgium, Switzerland and Saudi Arabia have all become big sellers too…

Official national debt is $20 Trillion… the real debt has been calculated to be $200 Trillion… what’s not included in the official numbers is social security, Medicaid and Medicare obligations… Think about it… every penny spent on the military, welfare programs, foreign aid and even your Congressman’s paycheck… it’s all borrowed money…

ITALEXIT? Five Star Movement SURGE into poll lead sending SHOCKWAVES through Brussels

ITALY’S Five Star Movement (M5S) has surged to a three point lead in the latest election poll as the popularity of anti-establishment rhetoric continues to sweep across Europe.

M5S has overtaken the ruling Democratic Party (PD) which has been plagued by divisions and chaos since former prime minister Matteo Renzi quit following a failed referendum on constitutional reform last year.

Now the anti-establishment party – led by comedian and activist Beppe Grillo – could become the latest party to threaten the traditional face of European politics.

An EMG poll shows Mr Grillo’s party taking 30 per cent of the popular vote, with PD three points behind with 27 per cent.

Meanwhile Forza Italia, led by former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, and the regionalist Northern League party each have a 12 per cent share of the votes.

EU SET TO TOUGHEN UP CAPITAL CONTROLS IN GREECE, AS THINGS GO FROM BAD TO CATASTROPHIC IN EU MEMBER STATE

It is not common knowledge (as the EU tries to suppress news that sheds light on the misery of being an EU member state), but Greek citizens have been living with capital controls since 2015.

What does this mean? Simply put it means that Greek people, EU citizens, cannot withdraw more than a designated amount of cash from their own bank accounts.

In the case of Greece, you can only withdraw €840 every two weeks from a bank ATM or in person at a bank teller. If you wish to withdraw more than the designated €840, then you need special permission to access your money held at the bank of your choice.

It was supposed to be a temporary safeguard to avoid capital flight amidst a pathetic Tsipras driven EU revolt, but the capital controls remain to this day and now news is trickling in that the controls will not only last longer, but may even toughen up.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I, personally, am waiting for the intelligent political leaders to pull an "Iceland", declare the country's debt "odious", and put the banksters and politicians into hard jail time for the misery and pain they have collectively inflicted on the Greek people.

Sweden is to vote on the 4th of May to force vaccination on all population.

LEADER. The two MPs Sofia Arkelsten (M) and Jesper Skalberg Karlsson (M) wants to introduce forced vaccination in Sweden. Social Committee prepared the proposal yesterday and Riksdag takes decisions on May 4, 2017. The proposal can now create a public outcry against forced medication with vaccines delivered by one of the most criminalized large companies - GlaxoSmithKline - which gave Sweden narcolepsy.

Text: Torbjörn Sassersson, Refresh. at 20:50

Since the forced vaccination is the same as forced medication, the proposal should be considered very controversial especially after narcolepsy scandal not led to increased security around the dangers of vaccines. Neither the health authorities or the Government has set specific requirements of the industry to eliminate the exogenous additives and residues contained in the vaccine.

US Will Keep Ground Troops in Libya

In a press briefing at the Pentagon today, African Command leader Gen. Thomas Waldhauser announced that the US intends to keep ground troops in Libya for the foreseeable future to support “friendly forces,” and to “degrade” the ISIS forces that remain in the country.

Waldhauser did not specify how many US troops are in Libya now, or how many will stay, but did estimate that there were less than 200 ISIS fighters left in Libya. The US had announced the end of the anti-ISIS campaign in Libya back in December, but never fully withdrew from the country.

The US forces were in Libya trying to help the “unity” government defeat ISIS in the city of Sirte. US officials repeatedly claimed the city was totally surrounded, and that no ISIS fighters would get away, though when the fighting finally ended, a substantial number of ISIS fighters did in fact get away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: this is "military-speak" for the reality that the US government is never leaving Libya because of the oil and the oil pipelines.

EU set for ANOTHER political earthquake? Swedish party that wants referendum LEADS poll

SWEDEN is facing an electoral shock ahead of next year's elections as a eurosceptic party that wants a referendum on the EU has rocketed up the polls.

The Sweden Democrats are projected to take as much as 23.9 per cent of the vote as appetite for the traditionalist parties wanes.

The Swedish general election will be held on or before September 9 2018 to elect the members of the national law-making assembly - the Riksdag.

Pope Francis Warns Against Other Countries Leaving The EU

Pope Francis warned world leaders on Friday that the European Union “risks dying” without a clear vision for the future.

The pontiff addressed European Union leaders at the Vatican ahead of the bloc’s 60th anniversary celebrations, scheduled to take place in Rome on Saturday.

“When a body loses its sense of direction and is no longer able to look ahead, it experiences a regression and, in the long run, risks dying,” Francis said.

Celebrations marking 60 years of Europe’s economic and political cohesion have been dampened by Britain’s impending departure from the union. EU leader Jean-Claude Juncker called the country’s 2016 decision to leave the bloc a “failure and a tragedy.”

“We are not in the best form and shape we could be in,” he admitted in an interview with the BBC on Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pope Francis, a word please; you are supposed to be the Supreme Leader of your faith; but are you not venturing way out in the realm of geopolitics, and presenting yourself as a "globalista" in making these statements?!?

Both Italy and Greece have economic woes which will make future participation in the EU nearly financially impossible, And Deutsche Bank can barely hold itself together.

And Holy Father, one last, and very reasonable, question; how many of these immigrants has the Vatican taken in and absorbed within its city walls?!?

Would the short answer possibly be, NONE?!?

Thought so!!

No Turning Back: Belorussian security forces arrest Maidan provocateurs

According to reports from Belorussia, around 200 participants and organizers of the “Sponger Marches” have been arrested, plus 26 leaders and activists from Dmitry Dashkevich’s Young Front and the latter’s armed wing, the White Legion organization led by Miroslav Lozovsky.

White Legion has seized a significant number of firearms and bladed weapons, and also wields manuals on fighting in urban environments. Although White Legion has officially long since ceased to exist, it still holds training exercises. The famous Vayar paramilitary organization, which is close to Ukrainian neo-Nazis, also trains with weapons, and many of whose members have been through fighting in Donbass on the side of Ukrainian Nazi battalions, has been subjected to repression.

Senator to Estonia: NATO Soldiers Are Perfect Gentlemen, But Russian Propaganda Will Grope You

Foreign soldiers stationed in faraway lands is always a recipe for disaster. So imagine our surprise when a U.S. Senator rebuked Estonians she met who were worried about NATO soldiers being above the law (which they are, in a certain respect)... Like any standard SOFA agreement, it appears that NATO troops would only be handed over to Estonian authorities if they were formally charged with a crime. This allows NATO an incredible amount of leeway to avoid any "embarrassments" should they arise... And Estonians have every right to be worried about NATO troops not respecting Estonian law. NATO soldiers certainly have made "mistakes" in the past: Last year, an international scandal broke in the Latvian port city Ventspils. During NATO drills, a brawl between locals and the NATO troops stationed in Ventspils prompted Mayor Aivars Lembergs to call the behavior of the NATO soldiers “piggish.” According to Mr.

Will Washington Risk World War III to Block an Emerging EU-Russia Superstate?

The relentless demonization of Vladimir Putin is just one part of Washington’s multi-pronged strategy to roll-back Russian power in Central Asia and extinguish Putin’s dream of a “Greater Europe”. Along with the attempt to smear the Russian president as a “KGB thug” and “dictator”, the media has also alleged that Moscow intervened in the US presidential elections and that Russia is a serial aggressor that poses a growing threat to European and US national security. The media onslaught, which has greatly intensified since the election of Donald Trump in November 2016, has been accompanied by harsh economic sanctions, asymmetrical attacks on Russia’s markets and currency, the arming and training of Russian adversaries in Ukraine and Syria, the calculated suppression of oil prices, and a heavy-handed effort to sabotage Russia’s business relations in Europe.

US offers Lukashenko to suffer Gaddafi’s fate?

The US has invited Aleksandr Lukashenko, the President of Belarus, to visit a ceremony dedicated to 100th Anniversary of the US joining WWI. It will take place on 6 April in Kansas City, Missouri. The US Embassy to Belarus has stated that Lukashenko was invited along with leaders of other states engaged in the WWI. Participants will commemorate those who served during the war. Belarus has not commented on the invitation yet. It should be noted that Gaddafi also visited the US joyfully some years ago, he tried to be friends with the West and even put up his own tent in America. But in 2009 the Bedouin tent of the Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in New York was taken down. The police even accused the Libyan leader of illegal construction. The Libyan authorities asserted that a tent, which serves as a cabinet for Gaddafi during his oversea trips, is a symbol of homeland. But the US did not appreciate this habit of the Libyan leader.

Belarus to stamp on any conflict unleashed as in Ukraine, president says

Belarus will stamp on any conflict unfolding in the worst-case scenario like in Ukraine, President Alexander Lukashenko said on Friday. "The Ukrainian situation in Belarus is not mine," Lukashenko said, quoted by the BelTA news agency as saying. "I cannot allow that the Ukraine-like conflict could be staged in Belarus. Somebody wants to explode the situation and they are using our scums," he said. "They have come to digging pits, like guerilla fighters, and hiding weapons, bars, axes, knives, grenades and so on. They used to say, ‘We are teaching patriotism to children’. Do they teach children with live grenades?" The Belarussian president said, "somebody’s hands are itching." "Nevertheless, there exists a certain barrier which no-one must trespass to violate the law and constitution," he went on to say. "Given the authorities cannot see it, a chain reaction will follow that is hard to be stopped as millions of people will be drawn into."

Several foreign journalists detained in Minsk

Several journalists, including from foreign mass media, have been detained by the police in Belarus’ capital city Minsk, as follows from an online Facebook broadcast. Among those detained are journalists from France24 television channel, a correspondent from Ukraine’s Novoye Vremya (New Time) and reporters from Radio Liberty’s Belarusian desk. According to a police officer, the journalists were detained to "clarify circumstance" and "establish identity." At the moment of detention, the journalists were at the Minsk office of the Green Party which conducted a campaign to raise assistance to those detained in Minsk on March 15 after a rally in protest against an unpopular labor law. Alexander Lastivsky, a spokesman for the Minsk police, told TASS the journalists will be released soon. Belarus’ President Alexander Lukashenko signed a law, dubbed in the press as the "law against social parasites," in April 2015.

Ukraine's Hidden Agenda Behind 'Major non-NATO Ally' Bid

Earlier the Ukrainian parliament adopted a resolution urging Washington to grant Ukraine special status as a "major non-NATO ally" – the status granted by the US to countries that have strategic working relationships with the Pentagon but are not members of the North Atlantic Alliance.

It should be noted that in 2014 Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko had already made a similar appeal to the US, but his request was then flatly denied by the White House.

Belarus opens case into plotting riots, 26 suspects detained

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said Thursday the country’s authorities were not trying to silence any individuals or groups, but will crack down on all those who violate the law. Belarusian authorities have opened a criminal case into plotting mass riots and detained 26 suspects, the country’s STV channel said citing the state security service, the KGB. "The KGB launched a criminal case into training and preparations for taking part in mass riots. In total, 26 people were detained," the channel said in its Thursday broadcast, adding that all the detainees were members of the unregistered nationalist group White Legion and pro-Western Young Front organizations. According to earlier media reports, the riots were planned to take place on March 25 and coincide with the so-called Freedom Day, marking the anniversary of the 1918 creation of the Belarusian People's Republic under the German occupation. The date is honored by groups opposed to the current Belarusian government.

Man held for 'driving at crowd' in Antwerp, Belgium

A French national of North African origin has been arrested in the Belgian city of Antwerp on suspicion of driving at a crowd, officials say.
A car was driven "at high speed" on De Meir, the northern city's main shopping street, before it was intercepted. There were no reports of any injuries.
Knives, a non-lethal gun and some unidentifiable liquid were found in the car, prosecutors say.

Belgian PM Charles Michel praised the authorities for an "outstanding job".
The attack comes a day after a car was driven at high speed along London's Westminster Bridge, hitting many people, before the driver got out and entered the grounds of Parliament. He was killed after fatally stabbing a police officer there. Two other people died and 40 were injured in the attack.
It was also the day Belgium marked the first anniversary of the twin bomb attacks in Brussels, that killed 32 people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Thank God for how quickly the Antwerp police responded to this, to prevent any injuries.

My heart goes out to the family and friends of those slaughtered and wounded in yesterday's attack outside of London's Parliament; all of Europe must be very "nudgy" right now.

Once The Eurozone Collapses, Will The EU Return to a “Normal Trading Union”

Peter Navarro, the head of President Trump’s National Trade Council, said in a recent interview in the Financial Times that the euro is “like an implicit Deutsche Mark” that gives Germany an advantage when it comes to exports over other members. Whilst he fails to understand that Germany has always had an export led economy, there is a lot of truth in what he says when it comes to other European economies trapped inside a frigid and inflexible currency system.

Due to flat economic performance that has required trillions in CPR in a vain attempt to resurrect the Euro’s dying moments the political elite continued with an ideologically driven austerity programme and did little about mass unemployment during a time of huge immigration. Many commentator’s in recent years have said this is the eurozone’s ‘lost decade’ but, in reality, they have now turned even more fatalistic and come to the conclusion that it is really the Eurozone’s last decade.

EU Official: We’ll Force Members To Accept Refugees

The commissioner for the European Union’s “Common Immigration and Asylum Policy” said the bloc can force member states to accept refugees, the Associated Press reports.

The commissioner, Dimitris Avramopoulos, said that the bloc has the “tools, the means and the power,” to force member states to comply. Avramopoulos’s comments came during a visit to Poland, which has opposed EU efforts to resettle refugees. Poland argues that many of the refugees in Europe came to improve their economic prospects, rather than fleeing a dangerous war-zone.

Avramopoulos’s comments are the latest in a series of threats by EU officials to countries that refuse to accept refugees or challenge the EU’s quotas. “The Commission might start infraction procedures” against resistant nations, European Commission Vice-President Frans Timmermans declared in early February. He expressed his hope that “peer pressure” would force countries to comply.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the EU believes it can FORCE member nations to absorb thousands of violent young men into their countries?!?

These two have, by these statements, looking at all the horrific violence which has accompanied this unvetted immigration has created, spoken the death knell of the EU.

And I have a grand idea; why don't EU member nations FORCE their leadership in Brussels to accept these immigrants in their own homes, particularly if they have teenage girls in their homes?!?

Let the "cultural enrichment" of EU officials, and their families, begin, and right the heck now!!

JEFTA: THE LATEST MASSIVE 'TRADE' DEAL YOU'VE NEVER HEARD OF, NEGOTIATED BEHIND CLOSED DOORS, WITH ZERO PUBLIC SCRUTINY

As Techdirt has reported, the election of Donald Trump has turned the world of US trade deals upside-down. The US officially pulled out of TPP, although some still hope it might come back in some form. TAFTA/TTIP seems to be on ice, but Trump's choice for US trade representative has just said he is open to resuming negotiations, so it's not clear what might happen there (or with TISA). Against that confusing backdrop, the European Union has been quick to emphasize that it is in favor of trade deals, and is keen to sign as many as possible, presumably hoping to fill the economic and political vacuum left by the US.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Jason Ditz, a word, please: I guess you did not get the memo that an attempt to promulgate "the big lie" to support a US governmental agenda, went out with the whoopie cushion and the dribble glass.

By making this claim, you are presenting a very strong case of SMD (selective memory disorder), so let us get to the facts of the situation with Crimea.

In 2014, the duly elected President of Ukraine, Yanukovych, got thrown under the proverbial bus in a US/IMF/Soros-orchestrated coup.

Former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych 'kicked out' of party

And in an election more crooked than a dog's hind leg,the western-centric Petro Poroshenko was "elected" as president of Ukraine.

Poroshenko elected as Ukraine's President

Mr. Ditz, do you NOT remember that President Obama admitted that the US played a part in the destabilization of Ukraine?!?

Washington Was Behind Ukraine Coup: Obama admits that US “Brokered a Deal” in Support of “Regime Change”

And do you NOT remember how much Victoria Nuland, Undersecretary of State, admitting how much money the US had spent to destabilize Ukraine?!?

Victoria Nuland's Admits Washington Has Spent $5 Billion to "Subvert Ukraine"

And do you, sir, NOT remember, post-putsch, that the Crimean people, understanding that there was no legitimate government in Kiev, held a referendum to determine whether to stay with Ukraine, or petition the Russian Federation to become a member state?

Tense Crimea votes over 90 percent to leave Ukraine for Russia

Do you NOT remember that Crimea petitioned Russia to become a part of the Russian Federation, after this referendum?!?

Crimea applies to be part of Russian Federation after vote to leave Ukraine

There is a principal enshrined in the UN Charter, Mr. Ditz, and that is the principal of peaceful self-determination, which is precisely what the Crimean people did, post-putsch; but because that self-determination angered the now western-centric Ukraine, and the US, Russia got accused, and summarily punished by sanctions, for something it absolutely did not do.

And it almost makes me laugh at the blatantly hypocritical attitude of the US government that, just like in George Orwell's "Animal Farm", "some acts of peaceful self-determination are more equal than others."

And in the US government's view, punishing a country, in this case, Russia, for something it absolutely did NOT do, is perfectly acceptable, if it suits the US government's geopolitical agenda.

But this placement of US and European troops on Russia's borders is very worrying indeed, and may well be a prelude to war against it.

Unfortunately, because something is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing for the American government could do, is utterly no guarantee that they will not do it.

A war between the US/NATO/Europe and Russia, over a lie (anyone out there remember "Saddam's weapons of mass destruction", which never existed, but served as the excuse to start a war against Iraq?!?)may well be a thorough military catastrophe for the US government, as our military is without cost-effective and militarily effective weaponry; without the necessary troop strength; without the money; and without the manufacturing (it's been offshored) to insure a positive result to a conventional war against Russia.

Which means this war is likely to go nuclear.
