an anti-anti-Russian point of view,


Isn't an "anti- anti- Russian point of view" simply the Russian point of view? Or are you one of those people who think that opposition to Putin's destructive policies is bad for the Russian people? That wanting the best for Russia automatically means marching in lock step with Putin's revanchist program?

The same can be said of the CIA. Considerable effort and money has always been afforded towards influencing and/or over-throwing governments.


And yet the CIA never annexed any territory that the government changed ruled...so it isn't the same.



Let's not pretend that any government does anything not "in the national interest". Russia does, the US does, the UK does (this list could go on for a while) so all this moral high-ground nonsense is a bit daft.


Nobody says it isn't, but to think Putin is doing what he has done as of late with Georgia and Ukraine are not in the national interest of the Russians as those haven't been part of RUssia for many years, but they are more for his ego than anything else.

SO saying the US is just as bad is a fallacy as we don't annex sovereign countries land for our national interest.

I think it started with the olypics. Putin got upset when instead of talking about the Russians putting on the olypics the international press tore him up on his stance with gays and lesbians. Even to the point athletes were refusing to participate he got mad. His ego took over and decided to show the world he wasn't irrelevant and how important he is.

Russian propaganda....Ugh.

I will tell you what I do see, Nazi like actions on behalf of Putin. The argument of invasion into another country is what Hitler did and what Russia HELPED them to do with the invasion of Poland and the Sudetenland.

The Russian video propaganda piece about Crimea called "Crimea, The way home" is alarmingly similar to the Nazi propaganda piece called : "German Sudetenland Returns Home".

www.liveleak.com...

If there are any Nazi tendencies anywhere, they are in Putin.

AND he has his eye on Greece, all those ethnic Russians there as well... Basically is you are even remotely Russian in heritage you belong to the federation in Putin's eyes. If you are slightly black or brown or of unfavorable ethnicity in those countries with that have SOME Russian ethnicity then you are screwed. You are not welcome in your home, which is really part of Russia and you just dont know it yet...yes, screwed...You are screwed like the Crimean Tartars are....DEAD screwed.

Your logic is a little, let's call 'loose".

No, it's not. That would mean that all Russians agree. Do all Russians agree with the Russian government?

If you felt that I am "one of those people" then surely you wouldn't have needed to have asked.

Let's play semantics does Putins government nit represent the people? OR are you saying Putin represents himself with no concern for Russia or Russians please clarify.

Ok, I'll assume that the first part, is summarized, above.

Is the flying of the national flag, on the territory of another, the only part that you would see bad about CIA actions?

What you do think?

Let's look at the evidence...

Putin, love him, or despise him, actually works, and hard, for the country. Of course he's egotistical, but all leaders are. But he loves Russia, almost as much as he loves himself.

I didn't know unsourced blogspot posts counted as valid sources these days.


I don't take much clout in anything posted on ATS (and the internet at as a whole) when it comes to propaganda one way or another. Not even in printed media. With that being said, from what I glanced over at the blogspot blog I found two links that went to seemingly official Ukranian / Russian news links. Is that not a source? (Not being an ass, I'm just curious or if the sources cited were known propaganda sites.)

Either way, no one is innocent. The U.S., Europe, Russia... We're all asses. The only difference is Russia is relatively open about it.


Exactly.

All states participate in propaganda, and dirty dealings. Whether is was the millions that the West poured into only West Berlin (especially the parts visible from the other side of the wall, so people on the east side thought that the whole of Germany was like that) to the building of mega-watt radio transmitters to beam "the truth" [cough] in to the Eastern Bloc, with TASS also blurting a vision of the world, as it saw it, there has never been a time when news wasn't used as a weapon.

Unfortunately, there are too many people, everywhere, on this small rock, who will attack whoever their own government tell them is the enemy. The breakup of the USSR, for quite a while, denied the US of an enemy. When that happens to a country, its citizens begin to blame their own government for the counties problems. Thankfully, Russia stepped in to solve that crisis. But while the idiots in Washington enjoy happy days again, China will sneak in the back door and hoodwink the US. It'll also try to do the very same to Russia, which is why the Kremlin is forging as many ties with the East as possible.

Now were talking about flying flags...I guess the annexation question was a bit to difficult, but flying a flag is much different than taking parts of a sovereign country...or are they the same to you?

And Russia hasn't done the same thing if not worse?


In January 2015, negative perceptions of the West in Russia rose to the highest level ever recorded in the history of Russian public opinion polling. Eighty-one percent of people surveyed had a negative perception of the United States, while a mere 13 percent had a positive view. Seventy-one percent viewed the European Union negatively, with 20 percent having a positive perception. One year earlier, the results were 44 to 43 percent for the US, and 34 to 51 percent for Europe. Forty-two percent described Russia’s relations with the US as “hostile”, up from 4 percent just one year ago. One out of four Russians thought relations with the EU were hostile – whereas two years ago, in January 2013, only one person out of a hundred saw Russia-EU relations in this light.

The current antagonism is nurtured by the aggressive anti-Western propaganda that has accompanied the crisis in Ukraine since its onset in late 2013. In the quarter century of post-Soviet development, perceptions of the US and the West in general have gone through different phases, but resentment towards the West has been gradually accumulating throughout the period.

Amazing how that get's left out of your posts, as if you are trying to make your case for the RUssia is the victim posts...oh wait you are.

Yeah with all that truth coming from Russian media concerning the things they do...what were we thinking.

So taking over the media, and privately owned businesses that the government takes over is what you consider working hard for the country?

Taking rights away from the people is working hard for the country, keeping the opposition away from the chance to make the country a better place is working hard for the country?

Boy I am glad your not running a country, as your citizens would not be happy.
