For the wake up of the humanity before total destruction
Humanity is awake other then the American people who suck up agitprop and disinformation from the US elites.
I do not disagree that most, not all, american citizens are zombies when it comes to world affairs. But do not generalize as you do. First, I am american, and I will without question state that I am not only fully awake but also much more informed than the vast majority of citizens worldwide. I have no doubts about it. Secondly, I see little real evidence beyond the high opinions of themselves held by most europeans that they are any more awake as the average american or canadian and equally clueless for that matter. Do you actually believe the controlled mainstream media and government disinformation spewed by european or for that matter any other states sources are doubted by their respective citizenry any more so than in america? There are many here among us who see the light as surprising as it may be to finger pointers as you.
There much more open debate in Europe about thoses thing then in the US. There go if you think or social group pression you’ll have more chance to express and inform yourself in Europe.
(just look at when it come to critic their country, most US start by saying they patriotic or distant themself from gouv…)
1 note tought, the only one that could change US gouv is American… (Or external pressure but that wold mean crumble of the current system, or shift toward east).
Final point is all occidental profit from the current system, not at same level but you do. Even normal fully aware citizen. (your money worth enough to travel around the world, etc why isn’t the same for a Thailandese or whatever ??) and that deep down no one want to lose it all..
I have been to euro zone on a number of occassions. Certainly for short periods of time, so I do not imply I possess equal knowledge of what you state as fact as one residing 24/7. I do however attempt to avail myself of your controlled and alternative media. There are also many blog sites available; though those for which translation is available are those which are most accessable since other than Italian and rudimentary French I do not speak the language. However, gaining personal knowledge reguires personal efforts. Comprehend? Back to your statements, from where did you obtain knowledge regarding us citizens ability to inform and express opinion? Have you spent significant time here? Or does that knowledge come from your biased media’s pronouncements? I can assure you there are absolutely no limits I accept to my ability to inform myself. As far as expressing opinions, I can and do so to a degree equal any euro citizen. Your next two statements reinforce my contention that generalizations are a specialty of those with a previous bias against those being categorized. The first is a simply stupid statement. Your final one is so easily debunked it makes no sense to bore others with a response. Among the common folk it’s the same all over; except our police tend to be a lot more ruthless in their response than those in euroland.
Point 1: Ukrainian media says Ukraine and Poland will compensate France for the Mistral ships downpayment. Is this for real??
Btw, Point 14 link (France mumbo jumbo) from Russia Insider “cannot be found”
The translation of that story is
“Damage caused as a result of France’s failure to supply Russian “Mistral”, will be borne by Ukraine and Poland This conclusion experts of the German edition DWN done by analyzing the recent transactions of the French defense industry. After the arrival of the President of Ukraine Poroshenko in Paris, the Ukrainian state company “Ukrinmash” signed a contract with Airbus for the supply of single-engine helicopters H125. In addition, the company Thales Communication & Security to supply Ukraine means of tactical radio communications. Ukraine also plans together with France to create a patrol aircraft.”
The analysts have worked out Ukraine is spending money with France to make up for their losing on the Mistral deal. Not actually handing them money as compensation.
Another article says the same about Poland’s order of helicopters –that it is to help France out.
In both cases of course the money comes from USA, directly or otherwise. Ukraine’s certainly as they have none of their own.

Nothing can rembourse the Mistral lost deal as it’s primirarly a ‘confiance’ lost. The money is nice but who will buy from a country that can’t deliver under pressure ? How do you know he won’t put spybot if pressured ? I won’t. (NB France tool was good cause they was selling it with open source code so that quite nice..)
Now this being said the best Ukraine could do for that matter if that she prove Russia was a real agressor and that France was right to not sell them the ship…
(that quite a long shot but well)
NB2 : Selling few helicopter when you have once again lost to sell 100plane to India..
Hollande follows the order of his masters in Washington and refuses to deliver the mistral ships to Russia.
They will “reimburse” Russia instead, i.e. they will print pieces of paper, or better yet input digit on a screen, and give that to Russia in lieu of a tangible good Russia could use.
Putin’s reaction? Work to re establish ties with France:
I pity the Russians for having such a weak leader.
It’s beyond pathetic.
Chavez, the President of a tiny Latin American country showed more balls than that.
Charette, what do you actually expect Putin to do? nuke Paris?
Someone who picks fights, throws tantrums and goes about making threats is weak. You must be American if you think that’s strong. .
Strong is as leader who does what is best for his country. It’s not about his letting off steam. It’s about getting the best result possible under the circumstances — and TALKING with them is the best chance of getting a result..
How about you make some sensible suggestion, instead of just criticising all the time.
Well, that’s what you guys keep arguing: there’s nothing Putin can do. You always find an excuse. In a sense you guys prove he is completely cornered (can’t do anything about Lybia, can’t do anything about Ukraine, Donbas, can’t do anything about Yemen, can’t do anything about the mistrals, can’t do, can’t do, can’t do).
But somehow little Chavez was able to muster more resistance against the empire… and mega grand chess master Putin can’t do a thing about anything. Again, I pity the Russians.
Anyway, everything is going downhill. Even Kadyrov is turning against him.
@ Kat Kan
You are another who believes you are superior to americans. Or you would not make ridiculous generalizations about all americans. As an everyday reader of this blog, I have noticed from many of your posts you are not the most informed person here by any means. As I stated above, there are many here among us who are not walking around with eyes wide shut.
And yet many with their eyes open keep their mouths shut, which functionally amounts to about the same thing.
Charles Fasola…why do you come here and pick fights with Kat Kan ? She’s a great person here at Saker’s…I honestly don’t know why they let you hateful people through here…Its better without you…Charette and you Charles…I wish you both were moderated out of here.
That’s very tolerant of you: gag those who disagree with you.
Because her generalizations and inate biases are NOT in any way condusive for cooperation among the common citizenry. If any knowledge of how most governments function, their agendas and why on an almost worldwide basis they feel absolutely no need to act upon the wishes of the public they suppossedly represent were in the least bit evident you might get your wish fulfilled. Instead you champion one whose statements fuel what amounts to nothing more than tribalism.
Have you ever seen the videos made by Mark Dice?
Interviewing ‘average’ americans ….man are these people ignorant.
Latest I saw was him with a map of the world,getting people to stick a pin in IRAN.
They stuck the pin in Australia!!
Actually Russia doesn’t want or need the Mistrals anymore. They are simply trying to find a face-saving solution for Russia and France to return the money. Here is the article in Le Figaro:
Mistral is referred to as the “backpack that none knows where to put”. There’s also the question of maintenance, repairs for a ship made in France.
P.S: I don’t think Vladimir P. is a weak leader. In fact, I think he knows exactly what he’s doing…
I’ve read all those reports. By the way, I’m from France. We also have a weak leader. At least I acknowledge it.
This article is pure BS.
There is only one reason the mistrals will not be delivered: Washington is against it. Period.
So please stop with the bs.
And if Washington is against it, it means it would have been good for Russia.
Using logic, we can conclude that this is a loss for Russia.
Sing your logic, you want russia to start ranting and raving about france and the mistral ships?
Or you want russia to launch an offensive to get the ship?
Your attitude is quite frankly ridiculous.
Russia should just get its money back and spend it on weaponry that they need now. 2008 was a long time ago when this deal was made with sarkozy and medvedev. I suspect the military want something different now and it needs to be made at home in a russian shipyard with russia jobs!!!!
Russia know hollande is just a vassal so why get angry with a “child”.
This situation is going to be a long haul for Russia and hollande may be weak but he has an opinion and presenting a reasonable face, no matter what putin may think privately is good practice.
This is my view as someone who negotiates contracts – creating a situation where you both can win.
Also just because america oppose does not mean it is important. America oppose everything russia does as they did with the Soviet Union. That is their default position.
To hold a view that because America didn’t like it means it’s good for russia is really funny.
The loss for Russia is not the Mistral. It is the idea of working with old Europe. If Russia can’t work with Germany, Italy, and France, then she will be tempted to move towards Asia. This may happen, but it will make the US happy.
Many argue that the order for the Mistral was a political payoff in the first place. So not that useful for Russia’s military posture.
I would have great difficulty believing that France’s sales agreement with Russia would allow the French to reimburse the Russians with Ukrainian hryvnia in the even of breach-of-contract!

I got a good laugh from ‘Poroshenko will reimburse France for the damage of the “Mistral”’.
I take the liberty to recommend some light reading for the weekend.
What can only be described as perhaps the most epic US court document ever filed, refreshing and educational.
At the exact same time that Greece has received a guarantee for billions of cubic meters’ worth of Russian gas, Macedonia is being rocked by the threat of a renewed Albanian insurgency designed to offset Moscow’s pipeline plans.
Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller announced that Russia will guarantee 47 billion cubic meters of gas a year to Greece via the Turkish Stream, which would then go onwards to supply the European market. While it’s not yet specified exactly which path the pipeline will take from Greece to the EU, it’s more than likely that it’ll go through Macedonia en route to the former South Stream’s envisioned Serbian hub, and thenceforth through Hungary, Austria, and beyond,
Polish joke of the day–ja, the nazi joke is on them!
The Polish Embassy in the United States has threatened to sue Mattel if it refuses to recall a game which refers to Poland during WWII as “Nazi Poland.”
Poland’s government is demanding toy manufacturer Mattel to recall a trivia game which refers to Nazi Germany-occupied Poland during WWII as “Nazi Poland.”
The incident happened only days after FBI Director James Comey said that not only Germany but also Poland was a home to “murders and accomplices” during the Holocaust.

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s ambassador to Turkey said Tehran is working out details of a project to export its natural gas to Europe through Turkey.
“A basis for transferring Iranian gas through Turkey has been established and details are still being worked out,” the Anadolu Agency quoted Alireza Bigdeli as saying.

Western leaders are boycotting Victory Day on May 9 because they are so sad that the Nazi war machine was defeated. That’s the message the Russian people are getting from this diss. They get the message that the West just doesn’t care that they lost 27 million people to Nazi aggression.
So nice that western leaders are leaving the Russian people the hell alone on Victory Day. Now leave them the hell alone, period. They just want to be left alone. Leave them alone to worship in their Orthodox faith in peace. They are not trying to convert anybody. They don’t care how anyone else worships. If the Curia want to quietly worship their Dagon fish god, what the hell do Orthodox Christians care? Who cares. Go ahead. This is what drives atheists and agnostics crazy: Christians, Muslims, Jews all worship the same god but under different names and different rituals, but just can’t seem to find a way to co-exist in peace.
