I agree theyll move to guerrilla tactics but it also hurts there narrative there trying to convince the world there a majority. Using guerrilla tactics shows they are indeed a minority group and easier to brand them terrorists. So it just adds to the theory thats its Russian spc ops making Russias actions all the more suspect. Russia is going to lose the information war if this continues because there story will become less tenable.


you mentioned Ukrainians are marking their helicopters with UN signs.
White one in the youtube video I posted above is the one with UN sign.
Some pics from the same event

A brilliant expose of Washington's role in Ukraine...

www.theguardian.com...

The trolls have stuck to their guns, give them credit for that, but lacking conscience and having dollar signs for pupils really places you in the amoeba category. For Washington, it is business as usual, fomenting discord and chaos for its own benefit.

Anyway, I'll leave it with you because I can hear the troll drum beat stirring...

That is not an exposé, it is a regurgitation of all the unsubstantiated allegations and rumors that have been leveled as "evidence," combined with the usual anti-American rhetoric. A photograph of an American MRI wrapper and am American shell casing that probably gets sold to every military on the planet-- including the Russians-- is a smoking gun that Washington is behind the "neo-Fascist coup?" You claim people who do not buy such shoddy propaganda must be paid to do so. How much do you think Russia is paying the quisling who wrote that piece of rubbish?

The MRE is a given and nothing new since the US already stated we were sending them to Ukraine. As far as anything marked US it should not be assumed that it came from the US. Israel would be a perfect example of acquiring US items only to turn around and sell them the other nations.

As for the article I agree with you. Its a review of all the accusations / counter accusations with nothing to substantiate some of the claims.

Pentagon sending MREs to Ukraine
Mar. 14, 2014 - 01:27PM |



WASHINGTON — U.S. officials say the Pentagon is sending 25,000 cases of military prepackaged meals to Ukraine, in response to a wide-ranging request from that country for some rifles, ammunition, medicine and other supplies for its troops.

Bread basket of Europe has come down to asking for 'meals' from others !!

After consuming these hand outs, I am sure people will give immense thanks to Right Sector and Svoboda for their deeds and the resulting ill-effects on the Ukrainian people.

Many important things to undertake for the good of the human race:

a) keep the oppressive and opportunist AngloAmerican aka AngloSaxon nose out of other countries affairs

b) keep Islamic fanaticism under the boot and well contained

c) clean up the corruption culture from the non western world and economies

d) keep the NAZI and similar extremist ideologies including communism and hard flavored socialism well sealed and airtight

Rest will be............progress at One Day at a Time..............

This statement says alot about you and its very scary let us hope your world view doesnt catch on it created world war 2.

I was reading this article and it was talking about how Ukraine can win this conflict with Russia and i found it interesting because it looks at things entirely different than many articles ive read.




Imagine if U.S. citizens awoke to find their entire navy and majority of their air force gone without a shot fired, seized by special operators posing as "concerned citizen groups." This is the situation confronting Ukraine’s Maidan leadership. 40,000 Russian troops stand poised to invade Eastern Ukraine and conduct a lightening assault towards Kiev. Ukrainian military and police operations to clear roadblocks and occupied buildings in the East continue to stall. Each day new pro-Russian protests break out and "concerned groups" appear with game-changing weapons like surface-to-air missiles. Russia appears to be heeding the age-old Sun Tzu adage to win without fighting.





First, Ukraine needs to go beyond conscription to send a costly signal to Russia about the risks of fighting a protracted conflict in Ukraine. The Ukrainian military should shift from large, conventional formations to small hunter-killer bands with anti-aircraft and anti-tank weapons as well as sniper rifles designed to send Russia a clear signal.





Second, Ukraine needs to prepare for defense-in-depth partisan warfare. Better to attrite invading Russian forces and extend their supply lines than seek decisive battles you can’t win along the border. Demonstrating the capacity to knock out weapons the Russians will rely on in a land war, such as tanks and aircraft, sends a costly signal to Moscow.





Third, take an indirect approach to diplomacy. Major NATO nations from the United States to Germany and the United Kingdom are unlikely to risk broader confrontation with Russia over Eastern Ukraine. The same is not true of Romania, Poland and the Baltics. Furthermore, these states, as NATO members, have more influence over Washington and other NATO capitals than Ukraine. In addition, expanding the web of countries criticizing Russia beyond Europe can pay diplomatic dividends. Ukraine needs to reach out to other states that have territorial disputes with powerful neighbors and get them to publicly criticize Russia and join expanding sanctions. This indirect approach also could mobilize countries across the Middle East upset about Russian support for the Syrian regime.





Fourth, take the fight to Moscow. Putin is an autocrat who increasingly polarizes the Russian population. It was not that long ago that mass protests hit the Russian capital and groups like Pussy Riot braved arrest to challenge the Kremlin. Ukraine needs to use encrypted websites and social media to get its message out to Russians. The message needs to be clear and targeted to younger generations: Putin is trying to rebuild a police state much like the Soviet Union. No one’s freedom is safe. The same message needs to ripple through Belarus and Central Asia.

Guerrilla warfare succeeds where the local area is hostile to the aggressor. In Eastern Ukraine, the local area will be pro-Russian so the hunter-killer bands will themselves be hunted and killed..............easily.

Regarding second point of supply lines..........same rebuttal of friendly land. No need for food, clothing, medical items to be hauled from long distances. Even spare parts would be available locally.

Third and Fourth points are useless enough to not be discussed any further.

1 Igla costs $100K, 1 RPG-29 $1000 plus 200 for rockets, 1 Sniper rifle around $10K each.

So $10M for Igla gets 1000 missiles, $5M for RPGs gets 5000 launchers, $5M for sniper rifles gets 500 units

This still leaves $5M on the table ammo and spare parts.

Wonder if Putin to send these to Taliban in Afghanistan to keep Americans ringing in some solid OVERTIME pay.

Mere $25M of investment can be recouped by moving the Russian forces on border just 5-10 miles more............wonder what that will do to the oil prices for few days?

Russians will be laughing all the way to the bank !!!!!!!!!!!

You dont really believe that vote was anything close to reality do you? Several polls mark eastern Ukraine as 70 percent wanting to stay with ukraine so even in eastern Ukraine theyll find large support. But more importantly you really believe there voting numbers were accurate? Go back and watch the counting they did first think youll notice is he ballots in those sealed boxes would have to have been in the 10s of thousands but when you look you can see where talking in the hundreds. In one station i watched on RT they had 4 woman working and verifying the voters. Funny part is they would have needed at least 50 people to handle the number of voters they would have had to process. Because instead of taking 3 min they would have to have pushed it through in seconds. See math shows what a farse the actually elections were unless somehow they found a way to stop time in eastern ukraine. Only a small fraction of actual voters even bothered to vote.

But het you buy into anything Putin says even if it requires time machines such as counting and verifying millions of votes in an hour and a half. You cant even do that in countries with electric voting machines. So those poll workers are just amazing defying laws of physics in there superhuman feats.
