Thats because the armed take over in the east is backed by Russian agents and Spetsnaz, these gangs didn't just have the Russian issues kit laying around in there wardrobes.. they have been armed and are being guided by Moscow directly, the UN can see it, NATO can see it the only people who don't or rather admit it is Russia

When the Ukrainians in the east have come out onto the streets in protest they have been attacked and hospitalized, yet Russia keeps warning any action against these armed violent gangs will result in action

Its Crimean annexation all over again

The 4/1 odds the Germans had over the Brits would be dwarf in this case with NATO and Russia.


I'm sorry, Triton, but I cannot take your post seriously, because it is quite clear to me that the nuance of my logic has been seriously lost on you.

Stop thinking in terms of numbers...it is no guarantee of success. I hope that clarifies the point of my post for you?

Haha!
You really are a contrarian. I am sure if I told you snow was white, you would argue otherwise. You do realise that they cannot re-annex the Crimea?

Seems as though the coup-imposed gov't doesn't have much trust w/ their own authorities. Wonder why that is?

So they're hiring: US FBI agents, DOJ agents & Dept.of State 'specialists'. . .


Several US agencies - the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Justice and the Department of State - have commissioned their specialists to Ukraine to help coordinate the activity of Ukrainian state structures on issues of security, law enforcement, interior affairs and international contacts, since the Ukrainian authorities are unable to do it themselves, a source in the Ukrainian Security Service said on Tuesday.


What a slap in the face to the REAL Ukrainian people. This coup-imposed gov't is nothing more than another US puppet regime.


Meanwhile, Alexei Pushkov, the chairman of the international committee of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house, said Brennan's visit only "proved that Ukraine’s current government is not independent and consults on everything with Washington."



"No wonder that part of the country does not recognize this government," he said, adding that such contacts were another proof that "the United States was behind the change of regimes in Ukraine, having established a regime that is more beneficial for itself."

US sends specialists to Ukraine to coordinate activity of its state structure

This comes on the heels of US CIA director John Brennan's visit to Ukraine.

Much apologies...I must be getting myopic in my old age...I spy your link. How gormless of me.

Will do. She is actually coming to my town on Thursday, the place smells of paint and detergent. I thought we were experiencing a dust storm today, but it was simply the council sweeping the streets! The local drunks, of which I am not one, have been promised free drinks, but they have to stay out of sight in a pub in another town. The owners of the local football team have flown in specially from India for the day, which is good of them as they are chicken farmers. The royalster has promised them a signed 'selfie' to take back to what was once her grandmother's domain.
Security is very tight, with at least two Chelsea pensioners riding the route just in case. It has promised to rain, so all in all, a good day is expected.

Ukrainian troops have seized an airfield in the city of Kramatorsk as part of a security operation against anti-government activists in the eastern part of the country. Activists reported that four people were killed and two wounded in the assault.


rt.com...

Well, that was easy enough. So much for the activists being Russian special forces or Russian troops! They were indeed, just ordinary pro-Russian protestors.


With a source like RT it has to be true right?

Ohhhh you're a comedian

I'm well aware of that, but the same rule book is being used in the East of Ukraine as it was in Crimea... But you knew that didn't you,

And you are accusing me of arguing the colour of grass?

you Russian lovers kill me, if your from Russia your Nationalistic (great) if your not and never been then you have no idea what Russia is or how miserable of a place it is. I was forced to go for work 7 times last year, at first I was excited thrilled even, then I arrived and realization slapped me in the face, I was detained because I had medicine they did not like that was prescribed to me in the bottle with the prescription (for migraines). They held me for over an hour google'ng what it was...then they took it from means told me to see a local doctor. (WTF)...the rest of the trip was ok, the Kremlin was cool but the atmosphere of the people was cold and on many occasion my co-worker (Russian) was shaken down for money from the police...Russia is a very in your face corrupt place and the legal system is a complete joke.

I searched WBCAMS FROM UKRAINE but I'm on my iPad and it doesn't play well. Maybe a long shot but a view from a street corner where this is happening would be pretty eye opening as there is a hush everywhere else.

Anything here?

Well your opinion is just that yours, my screen name is accurate so when I tell you that if American's are killed on its home soil as with 9/11 the will to take our Russia will be there. Poke the Bear (what a joke), its silly to get into a discussion regrind military might as it is completely obvious whom the victor is if the gloves were allowed to be taken off.

Again poke the Bear (what a joke, poke him all you want, let him get his Ukrainian Salmon BUT DO NOT THREATEN American bloodshed on US soil or Putin will not have much to preside over when the war is over (assuming nukes are not used, mutually assured destruction etc)), you do know what kills Bears right...? Humans and the most powerful human military has been at war for over 10 years, that type of ongoing practice cannot be learned quickly and the last time I checked Russia has not been part of any major war in how long...?

hey having National pride or hatred of the US is freedom of speech, enjoy it...just do not believe its reality...

How exactly is our (US/EU/NATO) previous meddling and covert destabilizing of the situation in Ukraine any different to what Russia is doing?

We know by now that both sides invested vast amounts of money and intelligence to prep their respective proxies.

The conservative estimate is that at least 79 people have been killed and more than 570 injured in the maidan-protests. At least 13 officers died, 130 injured by gunshot wounds.
How exactly the protests escalated still remains to be investigated, but there is already evidence that not all happened like western MSM reported.

As "the2ofusr1" already stated, recent investigations suggest that sniper-fire on Maidan came from agent provocateurs, from the windows of Hotel Ukraina (exactly from where the oppsition resigned at the time).

Go research some of the crucial elements that actively destabilized the situation in Ukraine in the first place.
Look up the UNA-UNSO, the paramilitary arm of Prawyj Sektor, who are linked to NATO's GLADIO (according to US and BND intelligence). A covert NATO operation, working in Ukraine since far before Maidan.

Yes, there are elections coming up... only that should have happened before our bureaucrats even recognised the new government in Kiev, against the Ukrainian constitution.

Agree that Russia is corrupt and somewhat lawless. However, be ready to face more airport harassment in the US and west. Such factors do not make any country Stalinist or North Korea like. They are just doing their jobs to make sure that rest of the visit goes in atleast half way pleasant manner.

An NFL grade player breaking world records in the league of high school teams is only rotting down the skills.

Defeating armies of third world countries that have been on weapons and economic sanctions for more than a decade is no valor.

Good article

The Obama Game: Is Putin Being Lured Into a Trap?

www.globalresearch.ca...

Small disagreement..........If US creates a guerrilla war type scenario against Russia in Ukraine.........then Russia can create much more problems for US in places like Afghanistan and so much so that many times more troops would need to be committed to Afghan theatre by the US/NATO.

Below article says it costs $2.1M a year per US soldier deployed in Afghanistan. Means 1K soldiers cost $2B and 100K would cost $2000B or $2 Trillion.........AND THAT IS EACH SINGLE YEAR !!!!!!

news.yahoo.com...

Maths does not favor US here. Many other theaters can be opened that can keep Yankees "pretty busy....."defending and spending" alot.
