OK, let's get it straight.
The ironies abound in this comment
Are you a right wing neo-Nazi Russophobe?
not at all.. I have nothing against Russia or the Russian people - just its leadership and their actions.
Because that's what your position is.
Based on Russian media using a paintbrush to imply anyone supporting Ukraine and not them are somehow all radicals bent on killing ethnic Russians.
So no, that's not my position.
For you Nazis are not bad, yet Russians are, therefore, your opinions speak for your position on the matter.
If you spent any time reading my posts you would see I have compared Putin's / Crimea's actions to those of the Nazis at the start of WWII. The
Russians are not bad, just their government / Crimean government.
I'm for one not a Nazi, and I'm not a Russophobe or any other kind of a racist. That's right, Russophobia is racism, something Nazis are very
Applying a wide brush to a certain point of view in order to place them into the racism box is also, in and of itself, racist. Again, my use of Nazis
has been linked to comparing Russian actions of today with Nazis actions of WWII. I don't support the Nazis or their backwards policies /
superstitions and I don't support the Russian version of it today.
Yes, Ottoman empire and Russians fought for Crimea for centuries, Russian empire won and established dominating Russian settlements which also go back
centuries, therefore making Crimea Russian. That's how it was done prior to nuclear weapons.
So you are suggesting that warfare to seize land is something people should just accept? The claims Russia is making to Crimea ignore history, and
for them its important they keep that history quiet. That history shows Crimea as part of the Ottoman empire for 300 years. If we want to go one
step further an agreement between Russia and the ottoman Empire stipulated that should Crimea ever become independent, it would revert back to Ottoman
/ Turkish control.
As for nuclear weapons, Ukraine gave those up. As we can see, that was a mistake.
Russians won way before Stalin, communism and the very birth of America. Deal with it, it's history. Unless off course you are a Nazi, because for
the last 20 years US sponsored Nazis have been busy re-writing history, and making new Fourth Reich claims for the entire Russian land.
Actually the Russians stopped winning in 1917, but lets not go down that road, where we can follow the collapse of Russia / Soviet Union. Had it not
been for General Winter, Russia would have been knocked out of the war.
The one part I am curious about though is how many Russians might have been saved had Germany taken Moscow and knocked them out of the war. For the
Russian people, the Russian / Soviet Government screwed them over pretty good from day 1.
Since the Soviet union was not a signatory to the rules of war / Geneva conventions / pre-WWII treaties, They were not afforded to protections those
agreements provided. That meant Germany's actions towards the Russians on the battlefield would be hard to challenge in an international court as
being unlawful. So while you had mass slaughter of captured Russians by Germans, you had Stalin doing the same from the Russian peoples back door.
Quite an inspiring leader, Stalin was.
As I have stated in other threads, personal attacks are used when people cannot attack the facts. I keep seeing this from the same group of people.
If the position of those people were on such solid ground, one would think they could easily defend their position while dismantling others using
Again, I am not a Nazi and I don't support their policies or political ideology. Just as I don't support Russian / Crimean policies or their
As for the comment about the 4th Reich, which is hilarious by the way, is nothing more than an attempt to shift focus away from Russia / Putin /
Crimea. Its nothing more than an attempt to try and paint a person with a different view point as something they are not.
Case in point - My invocation of Nazi Germany has dealt specifically with Putin and the Russian / Crimean government. Your invocation, as well as
others on your side of the fence, like to invoke Nazis with an attempt to portray the individual as one.
This is why your argument, as well as theirs, fails spectacularly. Its not enough to know what a Nazi is and what time period they were prevalent in.
You need to study everything they did, the manner in which they did it and how it was accomplished. Maybe then you would actually understand he Nazi
comparison with Putin / Russia and Crimea.
So if Crimean peninsula is to be put back in question then genocide of ethnic Russians is required to solve the "problem". Just like Yugoslavia for
example, with resulting annexing of Kosovo for US bases. Exact same situation as now; pro Russian slavic Serbs verses US backed Kosovo Muslims that
yeah the Kosovo comparison has been debunked many times over because it is not the same as Crimea. Secondly, if you knew history you would also have
known that Russia / Soviet Union was a part of the Kosovo / Yugoslavia situation and also sent in their military to work alongside the UN / NATO. Im
not sure why you guys keep trying to use that comparison since there is none.
As for the comment about genocide of ethnic Russians - Please link us to the sources that show an ethnic Russian genocide is occurring / has occurred.
The videos that Russian media has been showing have already been called out as propaganda and lies. The video Russian media was using, portraying it
as attacks against ethnic Russians from all over Ukraine, were actually video footage from the protests in Kiev.
You have "ethnic Russians" who have opposed Russians invasion of Ukraine because they are not "under threat" from Ukrainians. If people took the
time to research and look at all sources of info, instead of just taking Russian medias word for it while ignoring all other outlets, we would not
need to go down this road of Russian embarrassment / lies to create justification for Russian / Crimean actions.
Some of the other Lies by Russia:
* - Claimed their embassy in Kiev was attacked - A lie
* - Claimed hundreds of thousands were fleeing Ukraine - A lie
* - Claimed ethnic Russians needed protection - A lie
* - Claimed they did not send military units into Crimea - A lie and violation of the treaty between Russia and Ukraine. before you respond to this
one comment, read the treaty before you do so we can avoid even more confusion on the part of Pro Russian.
* - Claimed they would not annex Crimea
* - They use the Ukrainian Constitution when it supports their agenda while ignoring it when it doesn't (again Crimea).
if the Russian position is so solid and accurate, why are they shutting down any and all media outlets that criticize Russian government actions?
Ironically the very same steps Goebbels used in Nazi Germany.
Are you cool with that? Be honest. If that's what you are, hey, it's cool, you took a side, good luck to your dreams of World Domination.
While I appreciate that you think you know me and my position / beliefs oh so well, you are not even close and you are doing nothing but embarrassing
* - I support a group of people who wish to exercise self determination so long as its done in compliance with the laws in the area / state / country
they are currently a part of.
* - I don't support any government policies that allow for the equipping / use of WMD's.
* - I don't support any government policies that use economics as a means to control the population.
* - I don't support any government policies that use economics as a means to control another country.
* - I support the use of military intervention when only humanitarian issues exist.
* - I support fair, free and open elections to ensure all people are represented up to and including observers, live video streaming of the voting
places in addition to media outlets being able to mind the peoples business, regardless if that media outlet is pro or against in addition to a
release of all voting facts / raw data to ensure a lawful outcome.
* - I don't support any government policy that will ship in citizens from another country to affect an election outcome, and I certainly don't
support any government policy that will attempt to use semantics to justify a falsehood.
** IE the actions taken by the Crimean government leading up to the vote. If people noticed Russia extended citizenship to Crimean's before the
vote, making the argument that non citizens voted problematic. If Russian / Crimean actions were valid they would not have needed to lie in an effort
to gain the results they wanted.
The next time you want to take someone to task, you should probably spend the time to make sure your comments / position is accurate and supported by
facts. Unlike RT viewership I don't accept accusations at face value when there is nothing to support the claims other than the mindset of "because
the Russian government says so".
How about you tell me why there is no comparison between the actions of Nazi Germany and the actions of Russia / Crimea today.
