Colonel Cassad just posted this amazing document. Reading this opus it is pretty darn clear who runs Banderastan and how. I actually feel sorry for the poor Ukies who actually sincerely believe that they are independent. As I have written it recently – the Ukraine is becoming an African banana republic.
You think the Ukraine is independent? Think again!
Today, fuc…g in Ukiland is not what it was long time ago .Even love is not what it was yesterday.
The 3 things that remained the same are robbery , hatred and falsehood , their meaning , and yes, all three are unlimited and infinitely larger than anything ever before .Haaaaaa.The end is near. And there will be no mercy. Nooooooo.
….But they got something what others in world never had,criminals,thievers,psychopats,”nationalists”,eater of ties as governor,warmongers,world class beggars,liars. By the way not even Germans did not bomb own populartions so they got very unique idiots there….
the Ukraine is becoming an African banana republic.
Becoming? it’s been a “banana republic” since the ZPC/NWO coup in Feb. 2014. Hopefully this got leaked by somebody inside the coup regime, rather than being “hacked” by an outsider, since this would indicate internal conflict in the regime – which is always good.
This article in FR sums up just what an impact the Feb 2014 coup has had on the Ukrainian economy:
Not sure about your conclusion. Lots of banana republics show more spunk in their leadership class and it is always a challenge for the West to keep them down properly. The Ukraine seems to lack that kind of spirit. Some wonder if there isn’t a long historical tradition of Ukrainians looking for a big brother to help them. Moscow ditched them, so they want help (and goodies) from the West. This theory also helps to explain the rather strange phenomenon of zealously anti-Russian people from the historically Russian part of the Ukraine. They feel cast aside or betrayed by their big brother in Moscow.
Paul …Ukraine seems to have a unfortunate historic position where crap just happens . I think it’s Geo strategic location is conducive to evil aspects of society transiting from two major points .It seems to be a Island where connections are made to many points on the globe .
Seems that there is corruption coming and going and the guys in the middle demand their cut of the pie .No wonder NATO wants it .They want Russia too but Ukraine would seem to be more important strategically speaking .
Yes, for anyone interested, Rudolf Steiner says that ‘Slav-man’ has a double nature. A dark side and a very high and noble side. I guess we’re all like that up to a point, but the pure Slavs have it even more so, and it really affects their destiny as nations. Maybe that is something like what you said Terry, as far a geographical peculiarity….
And what would be “a pure Slav”?
Well, I was thinking of the race. Russians are not pure Slavs.
There’s only one race–The Human Race. Within that race are numerous varieties which are mirrored by the numerous varieties of our ancestors. (Yes, I minored in Anthropology.) There’s a new hominid called Denisovan after the region it was found in present day Russia. Learn about it and many more of our hominid ancestors through this excellent video, http://www.uctv.tv/shows/A-Neanderthal-Perspective-on-Human-Origins-28720
Race is a construct meant to keep humans from gaining solidarity and is the #1 fuel for tribalism and its racism. It’s hard more many to admit, but we are all Africans and mutts–there are no pure-bred humans!!!
@ Outlaw Historian
I hope you won’t mind a (perhaps) naive question, but how did the human race get to have all the colours it now has, if it originated in Africa ? If the first African humans were black, how did they become white, red, brown and yellow if they had nobody else but themselves to mix with ?
Very basic evolution.
Skin colour comes from melanin, the production of which depends on sunlight (that’s where you get your tan from when sunbaking on the beach).
Very dark skin reduces absorption of sunlight, and is protective (to some extent) against sunburn. However, as people moved north to areas with less sunlight, dark skinned ones would feel colder sooner, and they’d produce less Vitamin D, which is made by sunlight in the skin and is vital for bone growth and repair. Possibly dark skin even makes you more easily attacked (wolves, polar bears) on a white background (snow or ice).
Over many generations more of the ones with the somewhat lighter skin survive and breed, the darkest ones less so. The same applies to nose shape (long thin noses pre-warm cold air and catch more pathogens) , amount of body hair and sweating etc. most changes had a functional reason. (Red hair though is a genetic mutation of no benefit, it seems). Put a bunch of naked Swedes on the equator, in a few 1000 years they’ll turn black.
All comes back to “themselves to mix with” is a very evolved “self” with a lot of automatic or self-regulating options built in.
According to your theory, the eskimos should have the lightest skin colour, because they live the farthest from the equator, but they don’t. Also the First Nations (Red Skins) in North America had the same colour as the Aztecs and Mayas, who lived more to the south, and the Aymaras, etc.
And why do the Chinese, Mongols and Japanese have elongated eyes ? The Indonesians share the same trait, although they are also more southern.
Guys would you care to comment on the topic? Flor, I noticed that tendence of yours on changing the subject with a controversial subject.
How many 1000’s (hundreds of 1000’s maybe?) of years it took,we don’t know yet.But then you have the first ones mating with each other,over other 1000’s of years enhancing the pattern.As well as we have the mixtures between groups.Human anthropology is a fascinating subject.But only if you study it to learn (and accept).Having a racial agenda perverts the learning,and never ends well.
As Kat Kan’s explained, the skin pigment melanin’s responsible for the color variety. To go a step further, “black” is the natural skin color of humans, for Africans have the normal amount of melanin whereas others are deficient, which turns the racist argument that white skin denotes purity on its head.
Personally, I see all people as purple with green stripes–it’s their morals/ethics that set them apart from each other. Dr. Seuss published a story long ago about the Sneeches that I credit with informing my mindset on the issue.
=). To make statements about ethnic purity its very useful to check some sciense first. Anyway this is very silly statement – “russian” itself is the civilizational combination of factors, and gone far away from narrow ethnic identity, but its based of some original way of northern and eastern slavs, finnish, scandinavian, and siberian native asians – thats true. Generally all slavs have differences, as for ex. some scandinavian and germanic people among them.
As for “ukrainian” – it used to be an empty toponim, as another kind of ethnographic way of living of some peasant group. And the country itself was made by russian authorities. Thats why Ukraine is doomed to be in lack of self confidence in question of its origin. Besides Ukraine extremely fast losing its standby levels of industrialisation, education, social and civilian development estblished by USSR. Thats why the Bosses of the kiev marionettes originally made its coup based on russophobia.
There’s been quite a lot of evidence of pure Slavs recorded on videos this site.. perhaps it’s as much to do with human qualities as anything else. Things like courage, conscience, a voice for truth and reason; always inspiring and commented on here. Perhaps that might define a ‘pure’, in the true sense of the word, Slav…
Pro Forma Hegemon to vassal and obedient slaves.
Ukrainians, 40 million strong, deserve no sympathy. They have struggled for no freedom from domination. In fact, they embrace being second class, perhaps, third class “Europeans”.
They are destroyers of historic truth. They insult their own history. They allow criminals and corrupt leaders at all levels. They are outlandishly proud of the scum of the Third Reich.
What’s to concern ourselves with them?
They deserve nothing but contempt from civilized people.
Baby killers, rapists, torturers and war criminals. Have I missed any of their qualities?
They have bartered their sovereignty for the privilege of hating their neighbors.
Ukraine deserves to disappear as a state.
Pitiable? No. Diseased of mind, heart and spirit. They have sold their humanity and didn’t even get 30 silver dollars.
All they have to do is walk into Donbass and join the human race.
You could say that about the US to the tenth power .I think it’s a battle that can only won spiritually .Flesh and blood just wont do it .People become fodder for the machine .Only the sprite can reject such carnal callings . Only the lost will loose .Their choice by not choosing .
great comment Terry. I agree. to not choose…is to choose.
Red Ryder, Such hatred & condemnation of 40 million people. Your suggestion that 40 million people can just leave their homes and all 40 million men, women, children & elderly only have to walk into Donbass is ludicrous.
Try to control your mindless hate. I think you are a better person than this.
Symbolically walk into Donbass could be the answer.Follow the lead and free your Oblasts to “walk in the path of Donbass”.If they did that the fascists couldn’t stop them they are too few.
Unfuckingbelievable. Corporatocracy strikes again.
I’m moving to Mars
Ukrainian antiwar activist and politician Viktoria Shilova is the bravest woman in the country – here she confronts the Poroshenko regime on live tv.:
Thank you for that, gives me hope that Ukrainians themselves will go against their shi**y government.
Thanks Victoria-God bless you.
She is the person that first uttered one of my favorite (and one of the truest quotes about the junta) quotes of this crisis “We traded a government of thieves,for a government of (thieves and) murderers”.
A US rover is preparing a welcome reception for you .
This is a strange letter. Foreign policy is supposed to be handled by the White House and Sen. Durbin is a Democrat, so presumably he won’t undermine the president. I have to wonder how unusual this letter is. Yats must expect some action from Durbin.
If this letter is not a forgery (it is so helpful to our side it makes me wonder), it should be interesting news for Avakov, in particular. Old Yats,talking to the US, trying to get him kicked out.That will put a” burr under his saddle”. The key is to hope this is shown throughout Banderastan.And then sit back with popcorn, and watch the fireworks go off.
I would like to know the story of how this letter was obtained. While no level of arrogance from a US Senator would surprise me, yet we ought to have some reason beyond an image on our screen to conclude that it is genuine.
I wish with the same thoroughness people would also question every half-truth and outright lies about Russia that is being spewed non-stop by western propaganda machine.
The letter was leaked by Leonid Kozhara – former head of Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Well, even if Kozhara has changed sides, I would not trust ANYTHING that originates with people in Kiev.
He didn’t changed sides, he is from Yanukovich government. Kozhara was dismissed by junta immediately after US made coup in Kiev. As for trust – the same first and foremost applies for junta masters in Washington.
This Durbin guy had a job at a “Assumption High School in East St. Louis in 1962. During his high school years he worked at a meatpacking plant. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dick_Durbin This Illuminati Wife Tells All – Part 1 of 4 mentions a fake or false meatpacking plant as part of the false fronts to the Pentagon . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8ly0c0_Rnk Its a long series and I am not sure which # vid it was in but she did mention it . There is really a lot of important points within this series . It should be edited and I think that that was the original intention but she released so much that I am thinking they wanted to turn it over to as many people as they could and as quick as they could .
wow..what a video of the wife, trying to divorce her naval military intelligence husband…thanks for the link !!
Terry, Thank you for the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8ly0c0_Rnk. I have studied off & on for decades how the bankster/oligarchy controls the operatives/politicians of the anglo-Zion Deep State. Everything that Kay has mentioned on the first tape fits entirely with my knowledge from decades ago.
I think it is difficult for real people like us to believe in the existence of evil, because we have normal human compassion. Hence we understand others through projecting our normal selves onto them. When we are confronted w real evil it creates such cognitive dissonance that most of us just reject its existence.
There is a technology to the control of human beings, both individuals and nations. For example, the use of the control of money-creation goes back at least 500 years to the Venetian Black Hand. The use of the breaking of sexual taboos is much older; perversion of the seat of pleasure is very powerful. Sexuality is a portal: It can be to love and to creative genius. It can help supply drive for the good. But in perversion it can supply obsession for satanic goals.
This link supplies just a little evidence of the degree of evil which is contemplated & obsessively worked for. http://vigilantcitizen.com/sinistersites
” /… / Ukraine is becoming an African banana republic.”
Wrong. Banderastan is a new rendition of Yeltsin-time Russia, further improved by outright Nazi mayhem. Also, keep in mind that in Third World countries the people rise up in rebellion against their Western stooges. The Ukro-trash, by contrast, take pride in eating Western faeces (ask Victoria Nuland) and having their country thoroughly sodomized. The Ukros are so über-deluded that they — on the sheer basis of the money Soros paid for their fascist hooliganism — demand instant wage hikes to Western European levels.
The Ukros are beyond redemption and below contempt. Too damn stupid to realise their own worthlessness.
“Banderastan is a new rendition of Yeltsin-time Russia…”
Thank you! Thats the right analogy of course. Its Yeltsin’s Russia.
John Perkins is right. There is no American Empire. It is an international corporatocracy, and we need to see that distinction clearly before it is too late. The US Congress panders to the needs of its multinationals like obedient servants. And at the top of that true Empire are the International Bankers, calling the shots. This is what TTIP, TPP, and TISA are all about, cementing the final authority of the Corporate powers that be over the participating national governments.
Once approved, these agreements will seal the fate of billions of people on the planet to a world power without conscience and whose mantra will always be More Profits, No Matter the Cost.
@Victor …This is what TTIP, TPP, and TISA are all about … I think those agreements were a knee jerk reaction by the west to try to counter China’s new silk road plans . China was quietly working with Russia on the deal while the west were cocksure they had their game in the bag .By the time the west woke up to what was going on China and Russia had a big head start . The west is desperate and that is why Ukraine and the west bitchen about the South China Sea .
The west wants to contain the situation but the horse has left the barn and the west will always be 2 steps behind . Add to the fact that Putin is driving them mad . They have no move to put themselves in a favorable position and are working from a weak position .
That is why Russia didnt go into Ukraine .That is why the west is trying to pull Russia in but Putin is not going to give up his position of strength .Its a time thing now .Putin has the west in check . They need to go on the defense and try to outmaneuver Putin ,which is not likely to happen .
@Terry – Agreed. The higher view is that the West is in trouble and they know it – thus, these treasonable acts on the part of their rulers. In the end, no matter what the West does, economics will rule. And the economics (long-term) of it all is that the establishment of a web of Eurasian trade routes will be an irresistible force to reckon with as it will connect East with West in a way never dreamed of before. It is simply a matter of time now as China and Russia work together to connect the dots.
The only question is, how far will China and Russia get before the West reaches for their guns.
The so-called alphabetic trade deals were initiated over a decade ago to get around the resistance to same outcomes attempted at the WTO. All are modeled on NAFTA and are likely unconstitutional. China’s Silk Road project was conceived not so long ago and is more an attempt to short-circuit the “trade deals” than they are an attempt to negate China’s plans.
Interesting article on Ft Russ about a program on the Shuster Live show in Ukraine:
Ukrainian “Abu Grahib” torture scandal by “Tornado” death squad discussed on Shuster Live
0:40 Host, Savik Shuster, details the story: “Tornado” officer Tsukur accused the head of police for Lugansk region, Naumenko, of being involved in large-scale smuggling, as well as saying the latter should be investigated for prior collaboration with the separatists. Tsukur’s house was burned down by unknown persons a couple days after.
Tsukur together with MP Semenchenko inspected the so-called “smuggling trains” and have found that a trainload of construction lumber was labeled as “waste firewood”.
6:04 Police Minister Avakov video clip, listing the accusations of kidnapping, torture, murder, etc., saying Tornado members have been arrested, and saying he gave the order to disband the unit.
7:15 Savik Shuster: The situation resulted in an armed standoff because “Tornado” men believe they are being punished for stopping a smuggling train loaded with cast iron. According to head of Lugansk administration, this was simply a PR move to paint themselves as anti-corruption activists before impending investigation, and the train was carrying coal, approved and legal. However, “Tornado” fighters posted photos of train cars loaded with cast iron.
10:40 Anatoly Matios, Head Military Prosecutor of Ukraine: We started an investigation of these people couple months ago. We started criminal proceedings on charges of organizing a criminal gang, kidnapping, torture, murder, police misconduct, etc.
In view of the circumstances, I have obtained a permit to share evidence from the pre-trial investigation .
Several quotes from the evidence (questioning of the victims).
All along the same scenario:
“Grabbed into a van by unknown people/Tornado members, without any reason given. Taken to Tornado base, beaten with a pipe, tortured by attaching bare wires to head or genitals and running current through them. Forcing the detainees to imitate oral sex with a plastic tube, and being forced to rape other restrained detainees orally and anally. Eventually, the victims were beaten and thrown out.” .
All this evidence from victims is recorded on audio and video. We decided to arrest those responsible. Yesterday, 8 people were arrested simultaneously in 4 cities, including Tornado commander Onischenko. Then, we went to meet the second-in-command Tsukur, we meet in the center square of the city. During our meeting, I had “1+1” TV station film crew with me, who filmed his men pointing rifles in our direction. He refused to comply with our orders to disarm or let our investigators in, armed all the fighters, mined the base perimeter, deployed 6 sniper teams around it, etc. …
There are supposed to be 109 police officers in this company, and there are 70 more unknown people. Moreover, 43 of “Tornado” members have been previously convicted of crimes, 9 of them are repeat offenders. The commander of battalion has been convicted 3 times (actually, 5 times).
Currently, as Tsukur ordered his men to take battle stations and arm their weapons, we are also accusing deputy commander Tsukur of obstruction of justice, police misconduct, etc., punishable by 3 to 8 years in prison.
33:15 Moskal, Head of Lugansk administration: I can also add that a family came to me and said their two sons were taken off a bus by Tornado members. They had a sum of money with them. We came to Tornado, they claimed not to know anything about it, even though there were plenty of witnesses, so the case went to prosecutor’s office. One of the missing sons was found in a shallow grave nearby, the other is also dead, I presume.
Also, before they moved, “Tornado” raided Stanitsa Luganskaya, went into the homes as people hid in basements – shot out the locks and robbed food, electronics, etc. We managed to get 16 residents to come forward and submit police reports, but the local prosecutors were afraid that Tornado will shoot them, so we first went directly to one Prosecutor General, then to the current one when they changed on Feb 10th. Eventually investigation was started.
Tsukur No, I did not know anything about any tortures before now. However, I have to say all these accusations that are being leveled against us – the same thing is being done to our soldiers right now. Previously, I would send them to prosecutor’s office for questioning – everything was fine, I have 20-30 forms, for each soldier I sent. Now, we have 3 soldiers missing, no idea why or how, one returned recently, severely beaten…
Savik Shuster – Sorry, can’t hear you!
38:10 Ilya Kiva – (?) Deputy Head of Police of Donetsk area**:
Let’s remember that Tornado is formerly “Shakhtersk” battalion. Let’s remember what they did in Mariupol and Volnovakha. Those people will forever hate us because of “Shakhtersk”. So they were reformed, and those guilty were fired from police forces.
But later – this is the reason I came here – in January, one of the members of my department came to me. His friend was taken off a bus by police in Donetsk district and disappeared. We talked to his family, turned out someone was demanding UAH 40,000 ($2000) for his release. We transferred part of the money, tracked the bank accounts and phones of the woman that got them, and the trail led us to the same Tornado base. I believe everything the prosecutor said, because we eventually got that man out and he was in very bad shape. We started a criminal case on January 12th, but as the prosecutor tells me there were no cases before march, it must have gotten “lost”.
But why are we talking only about Tornado? What about many similar cases? What about “Artemovsk” battalion, which was disbanded for very similar things two months ago, and the head of which, Mateichenko, avoided punishment by becoming an MP?
We need to change the heads of police! And maybe, in the future, we can form a police that isn’t an oppressive force but actually protects people!
48:20 Alexandra Kuzhin, MP, “Bat’kivshina” party: , you seemed very shocked reading these descriptions of torture. To me, this is surprising, because I read and hear them every day. These are commonplace police tortures. Few days ago, I was in Kharkov… People in jail were begging to be sent from pretrial to prison, to make the torture stop. We exonerated a guy who spent seven years in pretrial – seven years! – without having his day in court. The guy he was accused of murdering – we found him and brought before a judge, he was alive.
Also, we need to do something about the army, the mothers of Ukraine keep begging me. Everybody only drinks, officers too. If there’s nothing else for them to do, why do you conscript them? And also, the soldiers are being beaten! Yesterday, I talked to the Head Military Prosecutor who’s sitting here – big thanks to him by the way – two soldiers were beaten, then taken away and tortured by their officers. You know, these cases keep adding up, one after the other…
52:10 Anton Geraschenko, MP: When Ukraine became independent , nobody was willing to protect it, safe for a few hundred men – SBU SWAT teams and the like . As law and order in Donetsk and Lugansk collapsed, and thousands of police officers betrayed their country , we had to protect the country with anyone we had , so we did it to preserve Ukraine . This led to some unfortunate situations, not just in “Tornado” but in other volunteer battalions too.
54:00 Alexei Mochanov (famous activist): Why was this question only raised after they started talking about smuggling? Tornado didn’t surrender yet because they think that the documents they collected on smuggling would be forged or “disappeared” as soon as they do.
When the war started, it turned out that police/army were unable or unwilling to fight. Both sides allowed ex-convicts and such to fill their ranks. We are the same as them.
We have to purge away not only policeman-criminals, but also those who appointed them and covered for them.
I have the impression that the whole war is maintained by crooks on both sides in order to get rich on smuggling.
59:50 Alexandra Kuzhin: (in reference to MP Semencehko previously advocating a full blockade of Donbass)
What do you mean “blockade” mines and factories? The places that pay taxes to Ukraine and e.g. mine coal that Ukraine needs to survive the winter? The places that employ thousands of workers – who would otherwise ? You want the whole of Donbass to hear on air that we here are planning to starve them?
Semenchenko, MP ***: Each citizen of Ukraine in the occupied territories has a duty to leave to Ukraine.
Alexandra Kuzhin: How? Nobody needs them here! They have nowhere to live !
Semenchenko: They need to enlist in the Army or National Guard****!
1:02:05 Yuri Butusov, head of “Censor.net” media portal: We need a working legal system. This is why nobody trusts anybody and things need to be resolved live on air. When in criminal cases, it is unclear who evaluates the evidence and makes decisions, this can only be resolved with a jury trial. We need to expand the application of jury trials.
1:04:30 Savik Shuster: On thing I just thought. Imagine – WWII. There are some rumors that jews and gypsies are being burned in camps, but nobody really knows. And then in 1945 it’s exposed and the blame falls on the German nation as a whole. But if it was exposed and discussed before, the blame would only fall on the perpetrators.
From the translator – not much to add to what I already said in the previous article on the subject (that has a video interview of a man who survived the torture).
Basically, what we said all along is true: volunteer battalions are death squads, they’re necessary because a ton of people fight for their rights&Constitution rather than the usurpers in Kiev, Ukrainian government is farther from Europe than some African regimes… Heck Savik even compared the government to Nazis, and Semenchenko advocated starving Donbass (Kiva advocates the same, by the way).
* The first 3 hours of the original program mostly involved discussion of the Head of State Security Nalivaichenko being fired (CIA-backed Nalivaichenko removed due to clashing with US State Dept-backed President Poroshenko on [url=v-n-zb.livejournal.com/8362304.html]gasoline corruption[/url] schemes), which we won’t dwell on – big change in the internal politics, no one outside Ukraine cares much .
** Worth noting that Kiva himself has a bribery conviction and was put in charge of a police battalion / walked everywhere wearing Lt. Col uniform despite never having served in army or law enforcement (his men staged a protest against being commanded by him and the battalion was disbanded). There are also semi-credible claims of him being mentally ill.
*** Semenchenko has also been convicted, but in his youth, and spent less than a year in jail. He’s also a very “interesting” character, overall (4th video here).
**** Especially “cute” advice for elderly and children.

Saker, there is no need for slurs involving Africa when describing Banderastan and its, ahem, proud people. You nailed it yourself brilliantly with these words back in September last year, to which I would only add that they apply to the entire Ukro population save the Donbass:
“Far from being any kind of patriots or nationalists, the Ukie ‘nationalists’ are subservient puppets of the West, willing to service AngloZionist interests with less shame than an old prostitute services her clients. For all the ‘Glory to the Ukraine, to the Heroes Glory!’ slogans, the Ukies are the cheapest prostitutes on the planet with no self-respect whatsoever.”
On this basis, the question about the authenticity of the Senator’s letter makes very little difference. The Ukro-trash might even be elated by the sheer contents; fake or not.
I am somewhat uncomfortable about the phrase, “key leaders in Ukrainian leadership”. Any native English speaker would have written “key leaders in the Ukrainian leadership”. Omitting articles (“a”, “the”) is a characteristically Slavonic habit, and suggests to me (regrettably) that the letter may have been composed by a Russian or Ukrainian person.
Omitting ‘the’ in front of Ukraine is somehow a big thing for the US State D.
Also the changing of Kiev into Kyiv.
Except the THE in this case is not related to “the” Ukraine, but to “the leadership”, that’s why it is a mistake to not be there. Isn’t it so, Tom Welsh ?
I think you’re correct. As a Dutch guy I shouldn’t respond to these kind of questions I guess.
Dear The Saker,
Sums it all up really – but it won’t hit the MSM, will it?
To be fair to Banana Republics and in particular your reference to Africa – no African country would lower its self to the absolute depths that Ukraine has – Ukraine in its current Banderastan form has Zero self-respect and is the biggest whore in the world. I am wracking my brain to find one totally pro-western African country that has sunk to these depths and cannot think of one! The “EU” is heading the same way, unless people fight back……
Thank you Veritas, Africa is much maligned even among circles where one would expect otherwise. Ignorance abounds. Negative and even insulting stereotypes about Africa are constantly bandied about by westerners of every stripe. It seems that its very much OK to say anything about Africa or use it as an example for any ill not matter how far fetched. One gets tired of looking the other way. In this case Saker could simply have said “banana republic” and we would all have understood his meaning. However he had to specify an African banana republic. Presumably banana republics from elsewhere are actually independent of the Empire.
Anyway Africa pivoted to China, in opposition to the Empire, when Russia was very much enthralled by the west. True such resistance has not entailed actually fighting the west. But Mugabe in Zimbabwe (a country much poorer than Serbia or Ukraine) has suffered so much abuse precisely because he has successfully confronted the Empire. The same goes for Isaias Aferwerki in Eritrea. Much of Africa’s resistance is below the surface, principally in its pivot to Asia. But also more directly in the rejection of Africom headquarters, which happened despite massive bullying and pressure from the the Empire. Africa stood up for Gaddafi, unsuccessfully to be sure, but that was resistance nonetheless. And there are many other examples albeit on a smaller scale. But the resistance is there.
Well, this letter confirms the statements of Nikolai Platonovich Patrushev, published here the other day, that US wanted to turn Ukraine into an agrarian country.
Ukrainian black lands are worth it. This fits with the desire to destroy everything and terrorizing the population with death squads (Azov, Tornado …) to cause massive displacement of people and the land to be emty, awaiting the arrival of Monsanto, Nestle and all of home, the usual…..
This same tactic has been used before in South America (see in the link below “Banished. Forced displacement in Colombia” for “Notebooks for discussion”, an MSF old publication from when testimony work was made, some time ago) and in Africa to seize the best land farmable. This is the origin of most famines in Africa.
Some time ago I read that future wars would be for water.
I do not remember if it was an article of Saif Al Islam, Gadafi’s son, I maybe wrong.
Do you know that, in the south of Libya, near the border with Egypt, Sudán and Chad, there is an underground aquifer, greater than Germany, and works to bring that water to the Mediterranean, the Great Man-Made River Project, constituted a colossal work of engineering initiated by Gadafi?
Nobody sees the relationship between this and the destruction of Libya and the resulting of a failed state in the hands of ISIS/Al Qaeda and the zone of operations of Boko Haram?
“Humanitarian interventions” in sovereign states and use of “jihadist terrorism” as a means to destroy and depopulate that of which they want to appropriate.
Russia, with its vast arable land is like a candy at the door of a school.
When they own both land and seeds and water, we will have lost food sovereignty and be in their hands if we want to eat.
I find it unlikely that the above letter was written by Senator Durkin. It is not idiomatically American. For example: “foreign partners.” Or, “invest every effort.” We make every effort, we don’t usually invest them. The whole letter is wordy and stilted, off-key to an American speaker.
Do any other American speakers find it “un-American”? Or am I unduly suspicious?
Why would someone create a phony letter?
Is it not consistent with all the Senate and Durban do and have done for thirty or more years?
Is there something within the letter that resonates as false?
Or is it just the notion that a letter of this content could not possibly exist?
This is what the US does. It runs its vassals totally. Deeply. It feeds and nurtures their actions.
This is what geopolitics is all about. The Hegemon rules.
This is what “leaks” are. Pieces of reality exposed to sunlight.
The letter is in perfect American-style English, other than for the omission of ‘the’ which can be argued.
However, Durbin claims it’s a forgery and his office cites ‘poor English’ and an incorrect title of ‘assistant minority leader’ in the letterhead as evidence.
So, either it is a hoax or it isn’t but in this day and age, I’d expect anyone issuing such letters to cover themselves with an easy denial, wouldn’t anyone?
#Greferendum: Greeks Voting on Austerity Terms Proposed by Int’l Creditors
13:54 ‘No’ vote leads at Greek bailout referendum
The majority of Greeks voted against the lenders-proposed bailout plan at Sunday referendum, opinion polls suggest.
According to one of the polls obtained by RIA Novosti, the “No” vote is leading with a margin of 7-8 percent. Another poll suggests that the margin stands at 4 percent.
18:10 Greece and the world are anticipating the results of the Greferendum as the voting is set to end in less than an hour
The latest I’ve seen is saying a 60% or better “No” vote.
“All they have to do is walk into Donbass and join the human race.” I agree, Ukries do not deserve compassion, they are part of the desease, and I am sure that the karma will hit them even more in the near future…..until the Universal Law will decide that they have changed or paid enough.
it is a learning process called ‘tough love”!
Election of President Poroshenko ‘Fabricated’ – Former Ukrainian PM
The election of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko was fabricated, country’s former Prime Minister Mykola Azarov said in an interview with a Russian TV-channel.
“The [presidential] election was fabricated. There was definitely not 50 percent [of votes in support of Poroshenko]. There was a certain “rigged game”. Americans put their stake on him and the election was “made.” This election was absolutely illegitimate. There was no democracy there,” Azarov said.
Not much question that this letter is fake for the reasons listed above. That does not negate the fact that Ukraine is an occupied country.
So the question becomes, who faked it and why? Agencies of the US have been known to create fakes and leak them to the opposition, in order to discredit them. That badly photoshopped image of a jet shooting at MH-17 that was sent to Rossiya1 was a classic example.
US ‘Stealth’ Bombers Can’t Hide From Russian Anti-Aircraft Missiles
Russian anti-aircraft missiles can detect and hit US stealth bombers, Major General Sergei Babakov said, according to Gazeta.ru.
Neither the Northdrop B-2 Spirit Stealth bomber nor Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk can fly undetected from Russian missiles, said Babakov, the head of Russia’s anti-aircraft missile troops.
“The American ‘stealth’ planes are a publicity stunt. Even our older R-118s are capable of detecting F-117 [Nighthawks]. So, nobody has the hat of invisibility yet,” the Major General said.
US Air Force No Match for Russia’s Air Defense – Italian Media
The US will not be able to penetrate the air defenses of Russia, China or Iran due to the meager investments in long-range missiles, an Italian newspaper wrote citing a recent report by the US Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments.
“In the event of war breaking out between Putin and Washington, the US weapons will prove unable to crush the Kremlin, much less to hit Moscow from a safe distance,” the newspaper wrote.
US generals fully subscribe to this assessment, Il Giornale noted, adding that 96 percent of the weapons obtained by the Pentagon over the past fifteen years have a maximum range of just 80 kilometers.
“In other words, our air power is only equipped to deal with third world countries like Iraq,” where the US Air Force encountered no resistance and did not have to either penetrate enemy air defenses or engage enemy aircraft,” the CSBA report said.
Russia and China are a different story. Both have advanced air defense systems in place, meaning that US planes won’t be able to get close to enemy targets.
“That means that any war with Russia would leave us without air superiority,” the US analysts warned.
Note how Russia, China and Iran are considered the defenders and the USA is considered the attacker. In their more “specialised” media (IE: not the zio-msm bs for the slackjaws), the ZPC/NWO are clearly planning aggressive war of their making.
In 1960, JFK beat Nixon with cries of an imaginary missile gap. Republican strategists seem to be planning a rewrite of that trick.
I have written to Senator Sherrod Brown — a foursquare kind of guy who opposes the excesses and crimes of the Empire — and asked him to verify the letter. He is a member of the Ukraine caucus, and almost certainly will know if the letter is a forgery or not.
As soon as I get a response I will post it here.
Unlikely that a letter from a U.S. Senator to a Prime Minister may be written using two different fonts.
The above letter from Durbin very nicely confirms what everyone knows – it is a “given”. But what will eventually happen to the so-called “Ukraine” depends right now on things closer to home. Will the U.S. be allowed to have its way? Here is a broad view analysis of the situation published recently by Novorussian NEWS FRONT, http://news-front.info/2015/05/10/novorossiya-krax-ili-vzlet-dlya-rossii-aleksandr-dugin/ (in Russian, my translation).
Novorussia — the collapse or rise of Russia
Russia without Novorussia is no longer Russia. This territory is a boundary, a line, by stepping over which you can lose or gain everything.
The events in Ukraine in 2014 became a turning point in Russia’s recent history. At the time Moscow did not respond to the challenge then presented to her. And this was a fundamental challenge that required a clear “Yes” or “No”. Moscow did not reply with either Yes or No. That is, “not quite a Yes”, but “not quite a No”. As a reaction to the Euromaidan, urgent and quite adequate measures have been taken, and as a result the Crimea became part of Russian Federation. But Moscow tripped over Novorussia. In every sense. This presents us with the question: what is Novorussia?
The answer can be given on several levels simultaneously.
The union of Ukraine and Russia, as geopoliticians perfectly understand – as well as we, the Eurasianists do, and also do the Atlanticists in the name of Zbigniew Brzezinski – is the main precondition to recreate Russia as a Eurasian Empire. This is our historical duty and the main threat to our enemies — the United States, NATO and the West in general. However, in the post-Euromaidan situation, when Kiev was captured by pro-Atlanticist-Neo-Nazi junta, even a theoretical possibility of restoration of the “big space” was lost. This was an unequivocal success of Atlanticists. A voluntary union with Russia is no longer possible. This is a fact, supported by overthrow of Yanukovych and by all that followed. It was for that reason the Crimea and the Novorussia appeared on the agenda. The Crimea and the Novorussia are geopolitically one and the same, this is a retaliatory move, a reaction to the fact that as a result of the Euromaidan Russia lost prospects to unite with the rest of Ukraine in a common strategic space.
After the Euromaidan Ukraine crossed to the camp of the enemies, blocking the very possibility of our Imperial revival. Russia found itself in a trap. And decided: if not entire, then let half of Ukraine be integrated into the Empire. It is not as good, but is more reliable. We took the challenge and united with the Crimea. The Nazi policy of the junta gave us the moral grounds for this. Further, it was logical to start the battle for all of Novorussia – with the heart in the Donbass and from Odessa to Kharkov. Disregarding anything, just as those who staged, prepared and supported the coup in Kiev acted in disregard of anything. Politics is only the balance of forces. Strong can do anything. Weak can do nothing, or almost nothing.
In Crimea we acted geopolitically correct. As the strong ones act. But we did not make the next step. So act the weak ones. Thus we have not answered the question: “am I a trembling creature or have I the right”, just postponing it, thinking, probably, that everything will work itself out. Therefore, the Novorussia is a bloody uncertainty. Which first and foremost is the uncertainty of the geopolitical status of Russia itself. Who are we? A world power? A regional one? Or a subregional? Crimea assigned a regional status to our nation with a claim to a world one. The vacillations in Novorussia signify that we we are a subregional country with a claim to a regional role.
Events in Novorussia also become a test of who controls Moscow: carriers of our national interests or the sixth column, i.e. the Atlanticist network of influence. It turned out fifty-fifty, with varying success: the Crimea is ours – the Russian authorities won, the Minsk agreements – the sixth column won. Therefore, Novorussia has made obvious the geopolitical uncertainty of modern Russia: half a sovereign state, half a socio-political and economic colony of the West. (Good that it is at least so, for in the 1990’s there was not even as much…) Therefore, Novorussia is the disclosure of truth, unpleasant for both segments of our society: for those who feel Russian (this is the bigger segment, to who Novorussia means everything), and for those who curse the present course, wanting to open the gates to the enemies (“Echo” [the notorious pro-western radio station “Эхо Москвы”], and others).
From the point of view of civilization, Novorussia is an integral part of the Russian world. Moreover, it is the part that makes it whole. Based on history, culture, ethnogenesis, religion and self-awareness, Novorussia – from Odessa to Kharkov – is an integral part of the Greater Russia and is inconceivable in isolation from it. 20 million people living in this territory are Russian in a cultural sense, no matter who they are ethnically. It is obvious that in Russia itself live not only ethnic Greater Russians, but they are all Russians (except those of the “Charlie race”). When the Donbass rose up, together with it rose the Russian world. And swirls of Russian young people, whose existence no one suspected, departed into Novorussia to shed blood for the Motherland, departed without orders, by the call of the heart. And many died there. And sleep the eternal dream. Seeing in the dream Russia to which they gave their lives.
Novorussia showed the Russians – that we are. We all still are. They have not broken our back during those shameful decades of unyielding and vile nightmare. We are. Which means, we are here, ready to die and kill for Russia. And for the Russian world – Novorussia is the awakening. Apparently, this has somewhat scared the regime in Russia itself. For how to deal with the awakened Russians was clearly not on the agenda. Sleeping we are innocuous and harmless. They tried to extinguish the awakening. Partly it was possible, as giant weights were thrown at stifling the “Russian spring”, which started at Crimea. The balance of this line was brought early. But the line of confrontation is clearly labelled. The 1990-s have not disappeared. Those who governs us, hate us, and fear. It is a fact. It has become a fact of Novorussia. Difficult fact for all sides. We woke up, or rather, began to awaken, but still are too weak to assert ourselves in full voice. We, Russians, still need the support of the state, which, since May of 2014, has generally been denying it to us. This is a very difficult situation. It is also called “Novorussia”. A drain to “Russian spring”.
Novorussia is also the Donbass. As it is: its men, its heroes, its temperament, its temper, its style. Those are special Novorussian Russians — very resistant, often too bold and persistent, largely Cossack-like anarchist, freedom-loving and rebellious, as the inhabitants of border regions of the great Russia. It is upon them, the people of Donbass, that Novorussia stands. It is their blood, the blood of their children, women and old men, their sons and daughters that has sprinkled the Holy land of Novorussia. Without them, who stood up full height against the Kiev Nazis and the Atlanticists, nothing would work. They not only withstood the decisive days, they stand and stand beyond imaginable possibilities, enduring everything, without yielding positions. Any slippery Moscow manager breaks against this Novorussian Donbass fortress. Those are free Russians, freer than those to the East of them, and certainly than those to the West. Novorussia – that is a victory of Donbass, entering into history. This is a high symbol for all of us. Quite a feat — not in the history books, but here and now. Looking into the faces of these people of Donbass, the living and the dead, you understand how we won so many wars in history. That is so. With blood and special stubborn, somewhat provocative Cossack Donetsk look.
The West will be pressuring Moscow through a network of agents of influence, offering a deal — Crimea in exchange for Novorussia (Minsk agreements and their variations). If we cave in, it will begin active preparation for the overthrow of the current regime and the attack on the Crimea. Since they are the attacking party, our manoeuvre space will only narrow down. When will the authorities finally understand this? Maybe never, just as the communist leaders of the late 1980-s and early 1990-s have understood nothing and nobody (until now) and are not going to understand. As Brzezinski said to me: “And we simply deceived Gorbachev”. The same way Kissinger and Brzezinski may say later about someone else: “Nothing personal. Big politics.”
How will it end? If the enemies win – then with the overthrow of the regime and the disintegration of Russia. Towards that leads the West, while working out a whole spectrum of plans and strategies, all aimed toward a common goal. Will the planned gradual infiltration of the entire Russian society from top to bottom by a network of agents of influence, operating with impunity in all areas, including strategic planning, yield result, time will tell.
Meanwhile – neither Yes nor No. And it is on this that everything depends.
The salvation script in the spirit of “the Russians begin and win” is simple and straightforward. But the chances of its implementation, it seems to me, are not too large. Moscow says Yes to Russian history and sovereignty and is involved in Novorussia for real. It’s hard, scary, risky. But if we withstand, the new world order will collapse. This in the end, the historical performance of duty. We have not started many wars, but those ones that were imposed on us, we mostly won. Now we are talking about our native land — Novorussia. What can be sacrificed? Actually — everything. We start and win. That would not be just a new birth of the empire, it will be a spiritual awakening, a jerk and simultaneously the end of world domination by “Charlie civilization”. We break through the blockade and transfer the Eurasian conservative revolution into Europe and America itself.
We will liberate the peoples of the world from the oligarchical dictatorship of transnational capital, the interest of slavery and perverted minority. Europe is for Europeans, France for the French. Germany for the Germans. And the end of liberal democracy. Then the power will be transferred by the peoples – from the hands of the backstage world of the elite bankers and financiers, not representing anyone or anything except the devil. Transferred with our help. And Kosovo – to Serbia.
Novorussia is a treasured feature of both scenarios: of the collapse and the take-off. But even if the collapse is inevitable, and sometimes we are experiencing exactly this crash pretty regularly – in 1991 or in the 90-s and early 2000-s in Chechnya – the Russians should stand on the side of the take-off party. I wouldn’t be surprised if the current regime dismantles itself. I would be surprised if it does not dismantle. But this is not a reason to give up. Novorussia is our pole, our turn. We must give everything we have, and even what we do not. It is simply fate. There “Yes” and “No” are clashed in a bloody battle. And it’s already above calculations, analytics, forecasts and cunning plans. Those are footsteps of history. If “Yes” to Novorussia, then “Yes” to Crimea, “Yes” to Russia, and “Yes” to the salvation of the world. If “No”, then the power of our enemies will become universal. Russia without Novorussia is not Russia. No more Russia. And finishing off all the enemies of the New World Order will be a matter of technique.
When they asked Heidegger, what can save Western civilization from collapsing, he sadly replied: “Only God”. For someone who doesn’t believe in God, it’s really quite sad. But for someone who believes, everything changes. Novorussia, Russia, Russian world will be saved by God. But only if we ourselves are on his side and not on the side of Mammon, the TV or the thesis “one’s own shirt is closer to the body” [everyone out for himself]. God saved mankind. He saved each of us. We have forgotten about it. Remember — we will win.

Serbia Asks Russia to Veto British UNSC Resolution on Srebrenica
Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic sent a letter to Russian leader Vladimir Putin, asking him to veto a resolution on Srebrenica massacre proposed by Britain at the UN Security Council, Večernje Novosti reported.
The Serbian president has sent letters to other heads of UN Security Council member states, as well as to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. The letters highlight that the resolution puts blame only on one side of the conflict, thus escalating tensions.
Earlier in the day, Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic in an exclusive interview with the RTS said that if Russia decided not to veto a resolution, this would not be a tragedy, meaning that the country could only “rely on itself.
In June, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the resolution on Srebrenica proposed at the UN Security Council could trigger new ethnic friction in the Balkans.
Bosnian Serbs Ask Russia to Veto British Resolution on Srebrenica
The president of Republika Srpska (Bosnia and Herzegovina) asked Russia to veto a British resolution on the Srebrenica massacre.
According to Dodik, the Britain proposed the draft of the resolution in the attempt to “clean its conscience” for all its negative influence around the world, but it will only “pin the label of genocide on the unborn Serbian children” and bring to the disintegration of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
“Those who once destroyed Yugoslavia are now trying to destroy the Republika Srpska”, Dodik said.
Earlier in June, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the British draft resolution is written in the anti-Serb tone and incorrectly interprets, from a legal point of view, what happened in Srebrenica.
Also, Israeli-America’s jailhouse b*tches are still playing their childish games:
OSCE PA Voting Results on Anti-Russia Resolution Gross Violation – Lawmaker
The decision to put the Canada-initiated anti-Russia draft resolution on the Parliamentary Assembly (PA) of the Organization for Security and Co-Operation in Europe (OSCE) agenda after failing to obtain required two thirds of votes is a gross violation of the procedure, the only Russian delegate to OSCE PA said Sunday.
“The results of the vote on the resolution is a grave violation of the procedure norms. It is required to gain two thirds of votes and it hasn’t been done. However, the issue has been included in the agenda,” Kovalev said.
Total gay mentality running the ZPC/NWO colonial apparatus. Note the proposal is by Canada, a more tightly controlled zio-colony than even the USA. In fact, in the 80’s the Mossad used Canada for 70% of their “business fronts” used for their covert ops because Canada is so pliable to zionazi interests. It’s even worse now, with the Harpy regime.
The Euro Squeeze on Greece:
Food imports, medicines, raw materials needed for construction and manufacture, all blocked and slowed to Greece.
I predict China will ship them everything they require if the No vote wins (early results indicate that victory).
China can supply everything Greece needs.
The European squeeze on Greece is warfare done soft. The Greeks who embrace their slave-masters need to read some Greek history and rediscover their soul.
Sputnik is reporting the story now:
Do as I Tell You: US Senate Gives Direct Orders to Ukrainian PM Yatsenyuk
Unknown hackers leaked a letter addressed to Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk from US Senator Richard Durbin, assuring support and instructing him which key officials should and shouldn’t remain in office.
The letter was published on Facebook page of Leonid Kozhara, Ukraine’s former Minister of Foreign Affairs. Kozhara copied the letter from the website news-front.info, which in turn got it from the website of hacker group cyberguerilla.org. The source said that the original file was allegedly received by the hacker group Anonymous.
The leaked document shows Washington’s clear interference into the domestic issues of Ukraine. US Senators literally stand behind every decision that the Ukrainian Prime Minister makes. Washington doesn’t merely advise Yatsenyuk, it makes decisions for him. The Prime Minister’s job seems to be quite easy — to simply do as he’s told.
In the letter, Durbin assured Yatseniuk that the US Senate was still behind him and was concerned by Poroshenko’s recent removal of some key political figures.
The US Senate also wants Yatsenuyk to keep certain individuals in the office.
“It is necessary to invest every effort to keep Oleksiy Pavlenko in his office of Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food. His discharge will create additional obstacles on the way of widening cooperation between the US and Ukrainian agricultural companies,” the letter said.
At the same time, US Senators told Yatsenyuk not to appoint certain individuals to certain positions:
“Majority of the Senators agree that neither Mr. Demchyshyn, nor Mr. Kostyuk meets the job requirements.”
Report includes a copy of the letter.
Unlikely that a letter from a U.S. Senator to a Prime Minister may be written using two different fonts.
Well, your people have not denied it, matt.
(Under his breath) Drats, I am caught!
Russia needs a press watchdog, with even major media falling for such a trick. A nation at war should
defend itself from foreign agents in the media, whether they spread enemy false propaganda intentionally or for stupidity.
That’s how they managed to attack and destroy Chile and Nicaragua, with the US organizing strikes and food panics with lots of cash and fake news.
What 2 different fonts:
Are you talking about the letterhead?
In the second paragraph, the first line has different fonts from the second line.
Also, first line, “the US Senate extends its trust in you.” Is that English?
Russia has excellent English speakers, and–I trust–excellent document counterfeiters. This is an intentional poor quality fake, created in the West, to feed gullible media in Russia.
Looks like a fake to me. There are too many definite and indefinite articles missing in addition to an odd non-US feel to the ‘bureaucratese’. Not bad otherwise though.
“Yes, for anyone interested, Rudolf Steiner says that ‘Slav-man’ has a double nature. A dark side and a very high and noble side.”
What about Slav-woman? A triple nature perhaps?
‘Slav-man’ has a double nature. A dark side and a very high and noble side.”
I think you could say that about “mankind” (or womankind) in general.We all have a good and bad side.It depends in life which side shows out more.
I think you could say that about “mankind” (or womankind) in general.We all have a good and bad side.It depends in life which side shows out more.
Except for zionists, neocons and the rest of the assorted fascist freakshow. With that lot the personalities are dominated by a malicious side and an indifferent side. ;D
Democracy is Dead: Brussels Prefers Corrupt but Tame Leaders to Syrizahttp://sputniknews.com/politics/20150705/1024239737.html
Brussels’ message to Greeks reads: “Your vote is irrelevant. We would rather deal with corrupt but obedient leaders, than honest ones with ideas of sovereignty,” Greek publicist Alex Andreou says.
Greeks and the people of Europe need to realize that they were twisted around the Eurozone decision makers’ little finger, Greek publicist Alex Andreou pointed out.
“[The EU] taxpayers’ money was pumped, not into Greece, but into failing banks, like everywhere else. Profit has been privatized and risk nationalized,” the publicist stressed.
Citing the research work released by the Jubilee Debt Campaign in January 2015, Mr. Andreou emphasized that almost all the money lent by the Troika and European governments to Greece since 2010 has been used to pay off private banks while barely 10 percent of it reached the people of Greece.
“It is not the people of Greece who have benefitted from bailout loans from the IMF, EU and European Central Bank [ECB], but the European and Greek banks which recklessly lent money to the Greek State in the first place,” the analysis stated.
However, it seems that this fact does not bother the ECB which has been “asphyxiating” the Greek economy — “the ultimate blackmail to force subordination,” according to the publicist.
Now major Eurozone players are “openly admitting” that their ultimate goal is a regime change in Greece and putting the burden of responsibility for Greece’s crisis on the country’s present government and Syriza party.
“The EU’s behavior over the Greek Referendum on Sunday is telling. Everyone agrees that corruption at the highest levels and chronic tax evasion were Greece’s downfall. And yet, instead of cheering a government that, despite ideological differences, is prepared to tackle those things, they have employed any unconstitutional and undemocratic means necessary to overthrow it. They are actively trying to install a government formed of the very corrupt entities that stripped the country like locusts for four decades,” Mr. Andreou highlighted.
@ вот так
On the same Sputnik page which you cite, there is another very interesting link, http://sputniknews.com/analysis/20150704/1024206753.html , that says
“There is something fishy about Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis’ economic course, F. William Engdahl deems, dubbing the politician a “Trojan Horse” inside the Syriza party.”
– supported by some scary facts. People are not always what they seem to be…

Greece’s Gordian Knot: Syriza Tackles Austerity (159)
Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis stepped down a day after Greeks rejected the proposed austerity measures. He said he was “made aware”, after the results were announced, of some Eurogroup officials’ “preference” of his absence from their meetings, which could help Alexis Tsipras reach an agreement.
Stay clear of the TV, particularly CNN and BBC. The spin to explain the No vote is cyclonic.
All the talking heads are spinning desperately to reinforce their Cultish ideology.
Merkel has been tied to her bed by special services or she would be levitating above the buildings of Germany.
Now they will crush Greece as sharply as they can in every sector of the economy. Vengeance is their instinct.
The solution is outside the Euro Zone, outside the EU. The solution is China and Russia and Eurasia.
China can send 50 million tourists to Greece in one flash.
Just get the US and EU out of the way.
Grow the economy. Bring back the brains and youth that have fled.
Larch- Chinese can do it. As I remember owner major company paid vacation over 5 thousand employee trip to French Riviera….why not to Greece in future ??
Now it remains to be seen if the Greek government has what it takes to take Greece forwards. They will need a vision, a plan and unity.
Tsipras and Syriza come across as a bit amateurish, but perhaps that is because of the MSM spin, but also commenters accusing Tsipras of being a trojan.
If they come out of the referendum with a 60% or more no vote, that should give Tsipras/Syriza a lot of confidence going ahead.

RT reports landslide ‘NO’ vote in Greece.
I salute all the OXI voters of Greece!
At last a people have said No to the Oligarchs of Euro finance and the Brussels tyranny.
Too bad Scotland did not show its own defiance.
The future is not in the past. The future is where the sunrises, the East. Eurasia. Russia and China will welcome all Southern Europe to Eurasian development and growth. Bring your culture, your intellect and your energy and prosper and build a peaceful world.
Lift your hearts, Greeks. Tomorrow you can begin your true sovereign destiny. Look East.
The Greeks are taking a courageous stand.
According to Huffington Post, the Greek people are voting NO to the usurious imperialist bank Oligarchs by almost 2 to 1. Now is the time for the Greeks to strike for Independence. A strong Republican militia should motivate the nation’s standing Armed Forces to join the people.
For One, Two, many, Democratic Republics!
Around half the votes counted they say 60% for NO.
It had better NOT turn out the later voters all went for YES.
I was shocked by how little some people understood, going on the “yes” voter comments published. “I want us to stay in EU” “I want them to get the best possible deal” “we must stay in euro” “we need loans to develop our country”
???? why have they not been educated? why can’t the government do simple graphics to explain it to them, that the deals go to the banks, not to them? that there are no jobs because they’ve been robbed already?
At least the opposition parties in the other poor countries should use Greece as the example on graphics, for starters, before moving on to show the same in their own countries. They should start with Greece, so people can see the similarities and work out it may lead to the same at home, too, if they don’t start resisting.
Ukraine is a banana republic (without bananas)
extensive refs to “banana republic” and what it means eg
“In fact, there is only one thing different between current Ukraine and its banana brethren in faraway Africa, Latin America, and Asia, and that is complete lack of bananas. Otherwise, a lot of characteristic features of “bananization”, including some specific changes in economic and political systems, have become very obvious”
plus other analysis
Quote from the article linked by JJ above:
“Therefore, according to the original novel, a classic banana republic does not actually have real sovereignty, elections, mass media, politics – all of this is just a show for the natives, orchestrated by the greedy shareholders of the monstrous neocolonial corporations. “
This is an excellent description of the US and I would say quite a few EU countries. Therefore the US is indeed a banana republic.
Another quote (my emphasis):
“The population of countries being “bananized” is therefore driven to plantations, telling them that if they work for pennies just a little bit longer and put their country under the control of Western corporations, they will all soon work in comfortable corporate offices, earning huge salaries and drinking coffee instead of gathering bananas under the scorching sun.
This can be called a “banana republic pyramid scheme”, and like any Ponzi scheme, it relies on large numbers of gullible fools. “
In fact the population of developing countries “are not gullible fools” and are wise to whats going on. Thats the reason for the very high levels of political violence in those countries. That violence is necessary to keep the “natives” down.
On the other hand the low levels of political violence in the first world countries shows that the natives there are in fact gullible fools. They are sold this “dream” purely by the media and they swallow it entirely. Hence no need for political violence.
“Urban Legend” already? Like nuking the Houthis (“Arafel” gkhales.blogspot.co.uk 3 June posts on Israel, Saudi and the Bomb)? It’s not YOUR bureaucracy (for once), it’s ours (by which I mean Zombie NATO), that’ll drown this in oil; the Americans DID NOT CARE about what was being done to halt Communism..now the West DOES NOT CARE about what is being done to ensure it’s access to fuel..Clarkson liquidised a lump of raw beef with a supercar-engine on live t.v not long ago..how much longer before we are doing that to people? My thoughts on The Wider Europe are known to The Saker but anyhoo also see; “The Omerta” 2014 posts “Arafel” & “Never Under Estimate the Power of The Dark Side Mr.Secretary (re: John Kerry & The Ukraine)” April 26th.
The United States Government Senator Richard Durbin writing to Victoria Nuland’s US State Department choice for a main Ukrainian leader when the US coup took over violently in 2014 the elected Ukraine government, “Yats”, speaks with authority as if the boss is telling his Ukie minion what is right and what is wrong with now US ownedUkraine.
Ukrainian national suicide with America supplying all the tools to for Ukraine to hang itself with…Durbin accelerating the speed with which this is to be done.
The complicity of Germany is stunning in it’s rigid arrogance. Russian sanctions on key warmongering states who obey Washington are being seriously considered in legal ways to respond to the attempted American forced EU isolation and demonization of the vast interconnected Russian landmass state.
Russia has stated it will respond appropriately, legally.
In the minds of American oligarchs this is a forerunner of their dreams with regard to the Russian Federation. Their eyes glisten with greed and avarice. Hang in there Russians for all our sakes
