US supports Ukraine turmoil though media blame Putin for chaos
Despite the obsessively negative portrayal of Putin in the US media, most people I know think highly of him. Ironically most people I talk to actually admire Putin more than any of the politicians here in the USA. They see him as decisive, pragmatic, and forthright. Basically the opposite of the jerks who take leadership roles here in the USA. On top of that Putin has provided asylum for Snowden, while the piece of crap politicians here in this country assert that Snowden is a traitor. We know better and that's why we see right through the propaganda spewed by the American news media.

Ron Paul: US is pushing its own agenda in Ukraine
It would probably be best as Ron Paul says for Ukraine to break up into several separate countries. That way each individual region would be able to decide what to do. It might complicate things a little for the USA, but the world shouldn't revolve around the USA.

Russian senators approve Putin's proposal to deploy forces in Ukraine
This is actually a very good move since the radicals who have disrupted life in Ukraine are acting in a lawless manner. The USA radicalized a group of dissidents in Ukraine and now Russia has to fix the problem. It would probably be best for Ukraine to split up into two or more countries and it might be best for the southern and eastern regions to simply become part of Russia. That would increase stability in the area and answer the prayers of many Ukrainians who have been victimized by American intervention.

Anti-Maidan rally in Crimea: Hundreds protest in Simferopol
Very few Ukrainians support the radical minority rioting violently in Kiev. Most observers believe that the USA instigated the unrest in Ukraine. Hopefully Russia will be able to undo the damage done by our leaders.

US and Russia clash over Ukraine
Hypocrisy is the word! If there was any kind of instability in any of the countries in which the USA has military bases, the USA would be all over that shit!!! LOL
:smack:
But seriously, Russia has every right to send in peace-keeping forces to keep people safe from the radicalized minority of violent extremist who are causing problems in Ukraine. The southern and eastern parts of Ukraine are already pro-Russian anyways and so I'm sure they will appreciate any help they can get in dealing with the unlawful rioters who have caused so much destruction already.

Ukraine's Odessa joins massive pro-Russian rallies across Southeast
Although our domestic news sources seem to want to paint a decidedly anti-Russian picture with the Russians being unreasonable aggressors, it seems that quite the opposite is true. The people living in Ukraine seem to look at Russia as liberators. We were sold a load of crap back when we invaded Iraq. We were told back then that the people of Iraq would greet us as liberators. That turned out to NOT be true. Now we're being sold a load of crap that Ukrainians don't want to unite with Russia. Why is it that our leaders and our media always feed us misinformation?

I was going to accuse a bunch of you of being tricked by the news clips published by Russia Today, but then I realized that it's just as probable that the rest of us have been tricked by CNN, ABC, FOX, etc. So, I'm really not sure what to think, but I do admit that there seems to be a double standard when it comes to military action. The USA seems to consider itself to be entitled to use military action without any need for a legitimate excuse, but complains when Russia or China intervene militarily. One hallmark of a morally mature person or nation is consistency and it's inexcusably inconsistent to apply one rule to one's own behavior and set another standard for the behavior of others.

Seriously? Kerry tells Russia 'one doesn't invade country on phony pretext'
:laugh:
Either Kerry is a comedian or he is a complete idiot. Does he really think that people have already forgotten Iraq? Russia has a legitimate interest in protecting its bases in Crimea and they'd be crazy not to intervene militarily. The world does not bow down to the USA and with idiots like Kerry, McCain, and the rest of the clowns in Washington D.C. running things, most people consider our country a joke. Unfortunately we're a joke with devastating military power, which essentially makes us an evil empire.

Putin: US wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya distorted intl law
The news has been full of bullshit statements made by politicians from the USA and Europe, but the only statements that seem to come from someone who is level-headed and grounded in reality are those made by Putin himself. The US propaganda machine may fool halfwits who can't think for themselves, but they've utterly failed when it comes to people who can see through the bullshit!

Propaganda Watch: War of words amid Ukraine unrest
Kerry is a lying sack of shit! This is unbelievable! Blatant misrepresentation of the facts all to sell a narrative to the people of the USA that furthers the interests of the corporations that own this nation. They say that the people of North Korea know nothing about what goes on in the world because all they ever hear is propaganda. Well, welcome to the USA where propaganda is all you get from the major networks. You have to actively seek information to discover the lies. Unfortunately most people are too damn lazy (or possibly stupid) to do the work it takes to separate the lies from the truth.
