I just care about things being called for what they are...
Show us the evidence that what happened in Kiev was a "US backed coup". Please, show us this evidence you are basing this belief on, maybe then you will have some credibility.
ZAKARIA: First on Ukraine, one of the things that many people recognized about you was that you during the revolutions of 1989 funded a lot of dissident activities, civil society groups in eastern Europe and Poland, the Czech Republic. Are you doing similar things in Ukraine?
SOROS: Well, I set up a foundation in Ukraine before Ukraine became independent of Russia. And the foundation has been functioning ever since and played an important part in events now.
And since Mr. Putin made this decision around Crimea and Ukraine - not because of some grand strategy, but essentially because he was caught off-balance by the protests in the Maidan and Yanukovych then fleeing after we had brokered a deal to transition power in Ukraine.
Speaking of Crimea’s accession to Russia, he noted that this is a special case, as Ukraine and Russia were one country for a long time. In his view, the West must recognize its mistakes.
Nothing anyone says here, and no amount of evidence, is ever going to change your mind. That's because you're either actively choosing to ignore the truth in favor of your beliefs, or you're an active propagandist who knows exactly what they're doing and doesn't care for credibility.
They are the only two options open to the rest of us here, this is the only way we can view you. We point to the sky and say it's blue, and you instantly scream repeatedly that it's purple.
