The Alternative to PC Liberal Insanity

The insanity of American conservatism – the Tea Party, and the Republican Party base. I grew up around these people. Most of my friends had a lunatic ideology like this. In fact, all my life, most of the White people around me have been exactly like this. American conservatism is probably one of the stupidest and most unpleasant political movements in the world today. Nothing they say makes sense. Almost everything they say is a lie. Their partisanship is ridiculous.

There literally is nothing of any value here at all. It reminds me a freak show at the circus selling poison snow cones to smiling fairgoers. There really is nothing here to like. This is a movement that is almost physically repellant. I go to their webpages, and experience an actual physical revulsion that propels me away from the page, as if I just experienced something that was actually physically disgusting.

The problem is in the US, you can either line up with these nutballs, or you can go with the alternative – crazy PC liberals. Now granted, liberals make a lot more sense on a lot more issues and and are not generally physically repellent, but Political Correctness and Cultural Marxism are both preposterous and irrational movements.

Idiotic liberals or conservative  nutcases.

What the Hell kind of a choice is that? How about none of the above?

Ukraine Sitrep 8/21/14

The corporate media is lying terribly about what is going on here. Supposedly the Ukies are on the verge of defeating the Novorussian rebels. Lugansk has nearly been conquered by the Ukies, and there is street to street fighting deep inside the city of Donetsk. According to the corporate media, the war is almost over.

Let us figure out what is really happening here. The Ukies want to “conquer” both Donetsk and Lugansk before their Independence Day celebration on July 26. The Chocolate King promised that he would win the war by that date. He wants to “conquer” those cities and possibly declare victory and go home after that. So now you see the motivation. The Ukies have thrown everything they have at Donetsk and Lugansk in a massive offensive, but it has not been successful except at terror bombing those cities and killing lots of civilians.

The truth is that neither Donetsk nor Lugansk are even surrounded and rebels move in and out of both cities all the time.

I saw a video the other day of a rebel column driving into the “surrounded” city of Donetsk on an open road. There wasn’t a Ukie in sight. They were coming in from the east. It is true that there are Ukies on the north, west and south of Donetsk, but they are outside of the city on far reaches of the outskirts of town. There was fighting in the Donetsk area yesterday at a city called Yasyunavata which is four miles northeast of the city limits. At the end of the day, the rebels were back in control of this city. That is the closest fighting to the city of Donetsk – four miles outside of city limits. There is no street fighting in Donetsk. It’s all lies.

Lugansk is not surrounded either. If it is surrounded, then how did a 1 mile convoy of military vehicles from Russia enter the city yesterday? They drove right in, no problem. The city isn’t even surrounded. Yes, there are Ukies on the outskirts to the north, west and south but there are none to the east. The fighting has been centered on Novosvitlivka and  Kryashchuvate, two cities on the southeast edges of town. It is true that Kryashchuvate is partly inside the city limits, but Novosvitlivka is outside the limits of Lugansk.There is very heavy fighting going on in this area, especially in Novosvitlivka. There is also very heavy fighting in a suburb to the northeast called Stanitsia Luhanska. At the end of the day, this town was back in rebel hands.

The rebels say that Lugansk is “stable” and Donetsk is “secure.” Both are correct.

Yesterday, the MSM was all giddy that the Ukies had captured a city called Iloviask to the east of Donetsk. It is true that there was an extremely heavy battle for that city, but the Ukies never took the whole place at any time. The battle is ongoing, and at this time, the rebels have secured the town.

Quite a ways to the north of Lugansk, the rebels have conquered Veselya Goa, and even further to the north, Chervonyi Svoten, quite a ways north of town.

The truth is that there are only five serviceable brigades left in Ukraine. All of the rest have been devastated to the point where they are nearly eliminated.

In recent days, the 3oth Brigade was totally destroyed. I am hearing different things. One is that they had heavy losses but the rest of them surrendered, including the officers. There were about 1,000 POW’s and the rebels have so many POW’s now that they do not know what do to with them and are thinking of building a POW camp to house them. Another account said that out of 4,700 men, only 83 can be accounted for.

Only the 28th, 128th, 80th, 92nd and the 93rd remain in all of the Ukraine.

The 28th and 128th are of dubious loyalty.

The 28th Mechanized brigade are from Odessa. They are not considered to be loyal and are being kept in Odessa.

The 128th Mountain Infantry are from Mukachevo in Transcarpathia. Transcarpathia has just declared its independence. One half of the region is outside the control of the Ukies. There are armed roadblocks everywhere and only authorized persons are allowed to pass. The Rusyns and the Hungarians of Transcarpathia are refusing to be drafted into the war.

The Roma are also resisting, as are the Romanians in Bessarabia. The Ukies have now undertaken their third general mobilization and the draft has been frozen in these regions.

The 8th Brigade is surrounded at the Lugansk Airport and has been there for a long time. They get shelled every day and there is no way to break out. Their relatives have blocked a road in Kiev as protest.

The truth is that the Ukies truly have no reserves left. Their best units have been taken out and all that are left are raw conscripts. That is why the Ukies are trying to rely on their Nazi paramilitary battalions and mercenaries from other countries such as Poland and even Sub-Saharan Africa.

As you can see, the Ukie military is devastated.

Yesterday, the Ukie Foreign Minister demanded Western military support. He compared Ukraine’s situation with Iraq’s and compared the rebels with ISIS. It is a bad analogy.

Instead of being near defeat, rebel attacks are spreading throughout the region, including beyond the Donbass. Yesterday, guerrillas captured 2 GRAD’s and shelled a Ukie military base mercilessly. Lots of explosions were heard.

The latest word is that the Ukies are preparing plans for a retreat and are building defensive fortifications on line running from Slavyansk -Kramatorsk – Mariupol. Ukie military headquarters have decided that they have been defeated in the region recently and want to stage a fighting retreat to consolidate their gains.

From July 15 – August 20, the rebels captured 65 tanks, 109 APC’s, 26 MLRS, and 93 mortars, howitzers and self-propelled artillery.

Short Primer on the Foreign Policy of the West

Who controls the foreign policy of the West, or certainly the Anglosphere? In a broad sense, the United States.

Who controls US foreign policy? The Foreign Policy Elite.

What is the US Foreign Policy Elite? Let us call it the Deep State.

Does the Deep State control American politics? Yes.

What happens when a President defies the Deep State? He is killed. They give him the “Kennedy Treatment.” The “Kennedy Treatment” is a warning to any Presidents who defy the Deep State.

How does the US media figure into this? The media is controlled by the Deep State. Many US reporters actually work for the CIA. The foreign policy views of the US media are the views of the Deep State.

Is the US media a controlled propaganda system? In terms of foreign policy, it is. The US media is not that different from the Soviet Union when you had many papers, magazines, TV and radio stations all saying the same thing.

Is there is a dissident or opposition press in the US? Since all major US media is controlled by the Deep State, the answer is no. An opposition press exists, but they do not control any large US papers or newsmagazines and they do not run any large US TV or radio news shows. US opposition press is relegated to the margins. One has to actively seek it out and often spend money to partake of it, and most folks don’t bother. For all intents and purposes, the US opposition is worthless since it is impotent and irrelevant.

Who controls the foreign policy of both the Democratic and Republican Parties? The Deep State.

Is there divergence of opinion in the Deep State? Not really. The goals are same among all factions; they only differ on the means. They range from somewhat hawkish to extremely hawkish. Two factions are the Neocons and the Realists (the Old School). They do not differ as much as you think, mostly in means, not ends.

Are the owners of large US media part of the Deep State? Yes.

Are most Washington DC stink tanks part of the Deep State? Yes, and their ideological differences are not large.

How does corporate American fit into all of this? In a sense, the Deep State works for the US rich and large corporations. US foreign policy is the foreign policy of the US rich and huge corporations.

What is the Pentagon? The Pentagon is simply the military force of huge corporations, banks and the rich. Those are only people they fight for? Any working class person who signs up for this mercenary army is a fool.

Is the Pentagon part of the Deep State? Yes. Believe it or not, the military is actually one of the saner members of this group. The real crazies in the Deep State are the civilians, not the brass. The neocon chickenhawks are the worst.

How does the US 1% fit into all of this? The 1% actually control the Deep State. US foreign policy is simply the foreign policy of the 1%. The Pentagon is the armed force of the 1%. US foreign policy really boils down to what the 1% want. If the 1% want it, it gets done. In a sense, the Deep State itself is just following orders.

“Europe” Is a Colony of the United States

What is Europe? Increasingly, “Europe” is simply a colony of the US. The EU is NATO is the US. It’s all the same thing. They aren’t even separate anymore. They’ve all merged together. What is the EU anyway? Mostly bankers, especially in Germany. Who do German bankers link with? Bankers in New York, politicians in Washington. It’s a deep alliance for some time now. These people also control German media.

The Netherlands elite, basically a monarchy, have been sucking up to the US forever now. Everyone thinks the Netherlands is such a groovy place, but the elite are really low people.

Denmark, the UK, Germany, Norway, the Netherlands and even Sweden and believe it or not Spain are in deep with something called Atlanticism. Altanticism is a political philosophy whereby European elites and states ally with the United States across the Altantic. Atlanticism is deeply tied in with NATO. The original Atlanticist states were the Netherlands, the UK, Denmark, and Norway. It has now expanded to include Spain and Germany at the very least.

Most of Eastern Europe, especially Poland, Slovakia, Romania, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, part of Rumsfeld’s “New Europe” are simply colonies, satellites and satraps of the US. They have hitched their wagon to the US for better or for worse. Georgia is now part of this group. Bulgaria and France are reluctant to go along, but get bullied hard by the US when they try to run off the plantation. They are just following Uncle Sam’s orders. Greece is no longer a country.

This Atlanticist thing goes back to NATO. To get rid of Atlanticism, get rid of NATO. I always wondered why the Soviets hated NATO so much, and now I am starting to get it. I am not sure if NATO has always been this way, but right now, NATO is evil. ISIS was a NATO project. The rest of the monstrous Syrian rebels are current NATO projects. The current bullying of Russia and strong alliance with the Ukrainian Nazis is a NATO project. I think it is time to roll up NATO. It does more harm than good.

European elites ally with the US at their peril. A current trade agreement that the US is trying to strong-arm Europe into signing would be a catastrophe for the EU. It would lead to the destruction of much of the EU economy (which the US desires as the EU is a US competitor) and the colonization of the EU by US multinational corporations. The US does not have the best interests of the EU at heart. It’s the Big Bad Wolf dressed up as your kindly Grandma. Don’t fall for it!

Interview with a Colonel in the Ukrainian Army

Partly translated. Interesting. This guy actually makes sense. He says a lot of the things that I have noticed for a while now. The “evil” Berkutsky who were attacking those glorious peaceful Maidan protestors…are now fighting on the side of the Nazi government that those same Maidan protestors put in power. They are now fighting in the National Guard. They don’t have much ideology. Their attitude? I follow orders. They tell us to put down Maidan, we put down Maidan. They tell us to put down these rebels, we put down these rebels.

Also many Ukrainian Army officers and troops are fighting in the Novorussian Army. So is the Ukrainian army the good guys or the bad guys? Both. The Ukrainian Army is fighting on both sides. It is a civil war.

In addition, Novorussians were on the Maidan protesting against Yanukovich. I suppose they did not expect Maidan to turn so ugly like this…They were on the Maidan, now they are fighting the regime that the Maidan people put in. He also points out that there is no real Russian involvement. “You see the Russian Army fighting there?” he asks. Of course they are not. No Russian troops, no Russian involvement, real simple. What about Russian volunteers? “So what,” he says. “We have volunteers and mercenaries on our side too. What of it?”

E.S.: Who are these people you negotiate with? What is their character? Why they do this? You probably had time know them.

Colonel Ruban: Why does Ukrainian army take prisoners? Who are the people in Ukrainian army?

E.S.
So, for you they are the same?

Colonel Ruban: And for you they are not? For you 6 million citizens of Donetsk and Lugansk all of a sudden become enemies?

E.S. No, peaceful residents are not enemies.

Colonel Ruban: And those who took up to arms – it is 15 thousand of them – are they enemies?

E.S. Well, yes, they threatened lives of innocent people.

Colonel Ruban: The army threatens lives of innocent people. It is created for this purpose. The officers graduating from military schools – they are professional killers, did not you know that? He is not a man with a banner at the parade; he is a man in trenches, which kills other people.

He studied this, like I did. I’m a pilot-destroyer. Take away the word pilot, and what do I have to do? To destroy.

I don’t think of these people – like you do – as enemies. It is easy for you from this position. But I know these people for a long time. There are among them officers, we protested together against Yanukovich at the Maydan.

E.S. What do you mean there?

Colonel Ruban: There –on the other side, behind the line in Donetsk and Lugansk Republics.

E.S: You mean they were with you at the Maydan?

Colonel Ruban: Yes, they fight Ukrainian army. They are on both sides.

E.S. Why do they do it?

Colonel Ruban: Why “Pravy Sector” was at the Maydan? Why people were at the Maydan?

E.S. If they were together at the Maydan, why do they fight those they stood together with?

Colonel Ruban: Because for people at the Maydan ousting Yanukovich was enough. No other demands were fulfilled. But those people decided to go the very end. They need real changes, not just replacing Yanukovich. And majority of their demands are those announced at the Maydan.

E.S.: But it looks absolutely different.

Colonel Ruban: Thank to you, the journalists, and the rest who called them terrorists and those why created the word “ATO” instead of word “War”

E.S. But Russia does not recognize it as a war…

Colonel Ruban: What has it to do with Russia?

E.S. In your opinion Russia does not participate in this conflict?

Colonel Ruban: Did you see Russian army there?

E.S. I have seen soldiers from Russia.

Colonel Ruban: Did you see Russian Army?

E.S. Officially – no.

Colonel Ruban: You will not see the unofficial either, because they are not there. If you met a Russian it does not mean Russian involvement

E.S.: So, how do you call it?

Colonel Ruban: Anyhow. You know, that mercenaries fight on both sides.

E.S.: Yes

Colonel Ruban: You know that Poland is fighting with us, and Switzerland? You know a saying: “Russia and USA will fight until the last Ukrainian” It is true. But this is geopolitics, and there are other places do discuss it. The national security is to discuss it. But we are working in the field, and with our knowledge and experience we call it by its name. If there are Russian weapons – it is a question who brought it. Can Putin prohibit it – it is another question. But this is not Russian involvement.

Nazi Safaris in Ukraine: Militiaman Fighting Against Government Forces Speaks Out – “Some Are Willing to Pay to Hunt Insurgents”

Great piece from Global Research.

As a basic principle we refrain from showing videos in which prisoners of war are questioned. However with this article we make an exception, because the video confirms what the interviewed insurgent states as well in the following text: that the Ukrainian army commits war crimes and buries their own dead in mass graves. So it is worthwhile to read both the text and to watch the video – two completely independent sources.

An interview with an insurgent from the Eastern Ukraine. He lives and fights in an area where the Ukrainian army was shattered three weeks ago, close to the Russian border in the Donetsk region. He stayed quiet about his name to me, but he was a wealthy businessman before the war. The interview was recorded mid-August and translated into German directly and from German. Some accuracy might have been lost when the German was translated to English.

Recorded by: Ilja Degtjarov

Why have you become an insurgent?

Because I do not agree with this Government and the things that are happening. I do not agree with this attitude towards the people. I could not bear it anymore to watch the people being tormented. Therefore, I have become an insurgent even though I’m already 53 years old. I do not agree that they came into my region. I will protect my trees, my stones, houses, children, women and everything else.

Where do you draw your optimism? You fight against the Ukrainian army and thousands of foreign mercenaries. The whole West backs the Ukraine. Why do you remain optimistic that you gain the upper hand?

We have a heroic people who have never knelt down. The victory will be ours, and if we still die, then better standing than on our knees. We have our vision, we have something that we want to fight for. Our grandchildren will grow up here. And if we die ourselves, our grandchildren will live as one must live, that is in a free country.

In much of the Western mass media it is reported that in reality the insurgents are composed of Russian special units or parts of the regular Russian army. What do you think?

We are not fighting for Russia, we are fighting for our people. Russia is a free country, a country where one can freely live without submissive bows to the United States and the EU. We know how you can live in Russia and we want to live like that as well. We do not want to bow before anyone, or worship anybody. We are a free people.

What do you think is wrong with the new Ukrainian Government? What caused this movement in the Donbass region?

These people have come to power through blood. Now they want to drown the whole Ukraine in the blood. Although they talk about the “free Ukraine” this country was never free, it always had to be subordinate to someone. Now the Ukraine is knuckling under to the United States of America, a country that suppresses all countries and is inciting wars everywhere. Actually, this country [USA] should be eliminated completely from the Atlas. Well, for the time being we will reach Poland, there we will wash our boots and then we will go on.

Back to the previous question: are the insurgents primarily local citizens or are they mostly Russian volunteers or even the nasty Russian army, dressed up with foreign uniforms, as some claim?

Insurgents are people who just yesterday were working with a hoe and a spade; who cared for their gardens. Then they laid down their tools and now they protect their gardens with machine guns. We are freedom-loving people. Even women, children and seniors go fight with us.

How would you describe the ideology of the people who have come to power in Kiev? In the West they say, of course, that they are flawless Democrats, who simply want to be different than Russians. Would you call them Democrats or perhaps something else?

I understand democracy in the way that one can express his will; and not that someone else speaks on your behalf. I still remember how you voted about the separation [of the USSR]: at that time also nobody cared to listen to us. Even now they are pursuing a unilateral policy. They want to see only that, what happens on the other side [in the Western Ukraine]. They are unaware of the suffering of our mothers and fathers. This is not a democracy, but fascism in its worst form. Not even fascists have killed children in this way, destroyed houses, poisoning the land with ecologically dangerous bombs. They bombard us with white phosphorous bombs and cluster munitions. They bombard us with cluster bombs, so that millions of small metal particles fly in all directions and on whole streets, everyone is killed, including women and children. After such bombings nothing is left, not even animals, but only burnt earth. Is this democracy? Do they fight this way for democracy? No, that is fascism.

Who fights on the side of the Ukrainian army? What is meant by foreigners?

We had prisoners of war from Poland. There are very many foreign instructors, grenade launchers. Our [Ukrainian] soldiers do not want to fight, according to the prisoners of war, thus they are threatening them and their families with death. In the Ukrainian army they are even killing wounded.

So people in the vicinity of Kramatorsk were massacred, their organs have been retrieved; then their bodies were buried with tractors and compacted on top with armored cars. So they are hiding the evidence of their crimes. This also applies to Krasnodon: they destroyed their own people.

The insurgents, the so-called “terrorists”, have left no one wounded in the lurch. They also help the civilians, the sick, all those in need.

So there are actually facts that they retrieved organs, apparently to sell them?

Yes. There is someone they can ask about this, can’t they? [ask to another insurgent]. We have people from Kramatorsk, who observed that.

Have you seen it with your own eyes?

Yes, with my own eyes.

(Another insurgent in the background): We cannot reveal our sources.

You do not need to do. Such information before was at the level of “someone has heard that someone has heard” …

Why, yes! That has been seen even by our reconnaissance. Even prisoners of war confirm this. Bodies were buried with excavators.

Apart from the Polish, who else is fighting [against you]?

If we link up into their radio conversations, we hear foreign languages. But I don’t know which ones. And the Poles are found everywhere.

Why did they come? Are they mercenaries or regular units, sent here by force?

These are people, among others, who are even willing to pay to be allowed to hunt people. They pay that they may fire on living people with sniper rifles. If there are no insurgents, they shoot civilians. For example, there was a man driving to work with his bicycle and they have shot off his head just for fun.

Do you mean a specific case?

Yes, a week ago. The man was completely harmless. A sniper shot him, for fun. (Another insurgent in the background): We’ve seen it, it was a hundred meters away from us. He was just going to work.

I have read about such cases, but I have not heard directly of that.

That was in Krasnopartisansk.

Why do the new leaders consider themselves entitled to kill such vast amounts of people? There used to whining all over the world, that allegedly some students on the Maidan were beaten. Now thousands are dying, and nobody cares. Why? Why the double moral standards – what ideology is it?

[About] these double standards, I understand the following: Ukraine executes commands from the West, it has no will of its own. Ukraine is eliminating people who are in the way for the coal and gas production of the Americans. They do not need our people here and destroy them therefore, area-wide. It is not a question of eliminating some of us, it is about to annihilate us comprehensively, using Grad [rocket] launchers, mines, surface-to-surface systems [ballistic missiles]. There are bombs, which leave a crater three meters deep and eight meters wide. Within a radius of 300 meters nothing is left alive. Thus, they destroy cities. Women and children are hiding in cellars and they burn them there with flame-throwers and explosives. They do not “only” kill families, but inhabitants of entire apartment buildings. The killing of insurgents’ wives is particularly enjoyed. Is it even possible not to fight against those guys? We are simply obliged to neutralize this contagious infection that is spreading in our country.

If we consider the situation realistically: at the end of 2013 the Ukrainian army had about 4,000 armored cars according to official data. The insurgents have only a few of them, so you cannot compare the forces. This huge mass [the Ukrainian army] is overwhelming and additionally there are these, for example, Polish armored cars. How can you beat this endless mass?

They fight for the money or out of fear that their families may be hurt, if they fight badly, or something similar. We fight for the lives of our children, for our country. That is a big difference. They fight without a vision and we have one. This will always win. We do not feed ourselves as well, but our spirit is stronger than theirs. No doubt, we will win because we are fighting for our people, while they came to our region, to take it away from us.

Were there cases that the Ukrainian army shelled buses or cars in which were clearly refugees?

Several times – even if it was written in large letters [on cars] that there were children. They shot at big crowds before customs houses. They fired at a seven-kilometer queue with grenade launchers and howitzers. People were running in all directions and left their stuff. As a slightly different example, next to the border an alarm system responded very loud at something; the children from the Donetsk region, from Kramatorsk thought that they would soon be bombarded. Which psyche can such children have?

What else is the Ukrainian army doing that you definitely do not know in the West?

Even people from the Stone Age have not done anything like these people in the 21st century. They torture, they kill people, break arms, cut off fingers, chop off heads and see how long you can still walk without a head. Everything you can imagine as horrible at all, they already do. We speak the same language, we had the same ABC-books at the school, so it is incomprehensible to me, through what influence they became the way they are.

Can you give specific examples? Without a name.

They shot at refugees, i.e. people who are already scared, with grenade launchers; with machine guns as in a shooting gallery, if people were clearly visible on a street. They did not shot to warn, but to kill. By the side of the road cars are lying around and they [Ukrainian army] do not allow the bodies to be picked up. Accordingly it smelled noisome due to decomposition of the bodies. Only after the liberation of the area the corpses could be removed. So they are fighting so against children, against women; and yet once they see armed men they lay down their arms and surrender with a white flag.

Regarding Boeing [MH17]: In the West it was proclaimed immediately – without ifs and buts – that the insurgents shot down the aircraft. [They said] Putin had given both the money and the BUK [missile] system, so Putin is to blame personally. Anything you can say?

I know nothing about that, but it is clear that the insurgents would never shoot down an airliner. Insurgents are fighting for people’s lives and it is unimaginable to save people with one hand and to execute people with the other hand.

Were there cases, where the Ukrainian army shelled towns and villages, when there was no insurgency at all?

This is their action model: first they use mines and missiles and then they penetrate into the cities. First they destroy and then they begin to “protect” the destroyed. They destroy absolutely everything. They destroy the people as one chops down a forest. They do not care whether it’s women or children, disabled people in wheelchairs, no matter whether there are insurgents in the city or not.

What use is it to shoot peaceful cities and civilians? What do they want to achieve with this?

We have here the city of Molodogwardejsk. Although there are no rebels at all, this town has been destroyed from a safe distance with howitzers. For them it is simply to destroy cities and leave a desert. Why do they do it, you have to ask them yourself. In the meantime we can now not even trust their white flag. Under the white flag, they perform regrouping of their forces and then begin to shoot again. You can no longer trust them – neither the army nor the Government. This is scum of humanity. When you look at their resumes, it becomes clear that they belong in a zoo. Until they sit in cages, children don’t have to be afraid of them any more. That would be my only wish.

How can you explain that even in some areas of the South East [of Ukraine] the junta has currently de facto won, for example, in Dnepropetrovsk? Why have large parts of the population changed sides ideologically? Why isn’t there any significant resistance?

Our country is poor. At first poor people earned from participating at the Maidan. You just went there [to Kiev] to earn the money. There it took people, to create large crowds – I would say herds of people. There they were given drugs, e.g. in tea. By the way, after their return home they have detected withdrawal symptoms in them. In addition, they received a brainwashing at Maidan. And only the people from Donbass were not going there; they had to work in this industrial area, they had to earn the money for the whole country, feeding the country. Therefore they still cannot subdue us. We have endured it as long as we could it. But at some point we could not any longer, which led to the uprising. It was always so in Russia: they harness slowly, but they ride fast.

What will happen with these cities [outside of the Donbass] now? Certainly one can assume that the vast majority of them are also against the Kiev Government, but this majority is suppressed and stays silent. But in my opinion, they should also liberated, otherwise they will be taken sooner or later, so that they support the junta. Then they are lost forever.

But we will liberate these towns as well. We will not punish anyone; everybody can have his own opinion. We will present our point of view, but will not impose our opinion. If someone wants to follow us, just go ahead, but if not, then not. Then they can simply go to lead their lives, to work.

It is summer. It is still warm and the streets are well passable. But in winter it is cold, un-asphalted roads will become impassable dirt, so that you can hardly deliver humanitarian aid from Russia. In many cities there is now no electricity, no water, no heating. How will you survive then?

We are a strong people. We are used to difficulties. And we will overcome these obstructions as well, whether in rain or snowstorms. We are serious about what we have started, and we will not stop now just like that. We will fight to the end, there is no way back.

Is there evidence that Americans sit in the military administration and give orders?

I can say nothing about that. Everyone makes his task here and since I’m not a scout I am not able to answer the question.

To what extent does the local population support the insurgents: Is it 95%, 70%, 50%?

You can judge for yourself: people harvest potatoes and give us some of it. People harvest three tomatoes in the garden and give us two of them.

If we look back to the times when there were no armed insurgents, but the junta had already proceeded disproportionately; how did people fight against them back then?

They fought with sticks against machine guns. They quit their jobs, left their families and came to us from everywhere. This concerned those as well, who did ignore the whole thing. Meanwhile, they changed their mind and protected their country. Many changed their bad habits, abstaining from alcohol. Among the insurgents, generally, iron discipline reigns and it is strictly forbidden to drink alcohol. The people are not paid. They fight for an idea. They eat what they are given from the civilians. All are highly motivated, but the sooner the whole thing comes to an end, the better.

What has changed in the towns and villages under control of the insurgents? For example, I read that they close casinos and pursue drug traffickers…

The Ukrainian police fought for 23 years against such phenomena as corruption and drugs, but without success. We have fixed it immediately. Drugs have become the absolute rarity. Something is changing in people’s minds and even alcoholics and drug addicts are changing their habits. In our shops you can buy vodka easily, but nobody does. Addicts tell themselves – maybe as a joke – that they will take no more drugs before victory. Anyway, there are no more drugs.

Within the liberated towns, factories and coal mines are destroyed; there is no work. How can you live there?

We will rebuild it, as we did after the Great Patriotic War. Our enthusiasm will be enough for that. Even if our generation will live in poverty, the next generation will live better. We are not afraid.

From the Russian side you receive humanitarian aid, which is generally known. But who delivers this assistance: the State, any parties, the church, private individuals?

You have access to these packages. Take pictures, the packages are labeled.

In the store for humanitarian aid I’ve seen many packages by the Communist Party, from churches…

Also from veterans of the Afghan war, by Chernobyl veterans, by the Communist Party, from the people who know what a war is like.

Do western organizations also provide humanitarian assistance in South-East?

And how! They deliver mines and projectiles for the Ukrainian army. In this way they help the Ukraine and this assistance helps then to destroy normal people.

So, there is no real humanitarian aid [from the West]?

It does not exist, I’ve never seen any. The same applies for medical help.

How the Golan Was Stolen

Along the Syria border there were no farms and no refugee camps — there was only the Syrian army…The kibbutzim saw the good agricultural land …and they dreamed about it…They didn’t even try to hide their greed for the land…We would send a tractor to plow some area where it wasn’t possible to do anything, in the demilitarized area, and knew in advance that the Syrians would start to shoot.

If they didn’t shoot, we would tell the tractor to advance further, until in the end the Syrians would get annoyed and shoot. And then we would use artillery and later the air force also, and that’s how it was…The Syrians, on the fourth day of the war, were not a threat to us.”

– Moshe Dayan on pre-1967 clashes with the Syrians, in a 1976 interview with Rami Tal, as quoted in The New York Times and Associated Press reports (11 May 1997)

The Israelis have been doing this sort of thing forever now, going all the way back to 1932 or so. The Israelis wrote the book on ethnic cleansing. This is why I have always felt that Israel is a fascist or even a Nazi state (assuming these particular Nazis are Judeophiles and not Judeophobes).

Ethnic nationalism will not be the salvation of the Jews!

American Inertia: A Comparison of the Bush and Obama Administrations

A superb comment from a commenter named Eric:

If anything, the US is largely the same imperialistic entity it was during Bush’s tenure as President. In some ways America has gone further left. I recall one thing Americans still had a right to do during Bush’s presidency is regularly protest and publicly insult Bush.

Doing the same to Obama has different results. Particularly whites who criticize Obama are often accused of racism, and many think that whites who criticize Obama really have a problem with his race rather than his mediocre Presidency.

If you meet people in the Arab world, they clearly think Obama is no different than Bush. Just look at the carnage in the Middle East with thousands of Palestinians dead, and Obama just wrote another check to Israel, providing them with even more weapons.

Interestingly, most Israelis do not like Obama as he is perceived to be more sympathetic to the Palestinians. However many Palestinians hate him as well because they thought a man with his middle name, Hussein, would change US foreign policy considerably.

The difference though between now and then was when Bush was in office, is that under Bush, the US had considerable leverage over the rest of the planet. The global financial crisis has changed things to where we now see a gradual power shift moving from the West to the East. Today we see Russia regularly making the powers in Washington DC look like a bunch of fools. Putin has made Obama look completely impotent with regards to Ukraine. The strange thing is that Putin is actually quite well respected by some conservative Americans; in fact, he is a wet dream for them.

That being said, we seem to now be living in a post-American world, a world where America is still a player but does not have the level of influence that it had just a few years ago. I think US influence will continue to decline as the years and decades pass.

Superb comment! I would say that not all Whites who attack Obama are accused of racism. Maybe conservative Whites are. But as a liberal to leftwing White, no one ever accuses me of racism for not liking Obama. Instead I am just considered to be a complete traitor to the Left and the Democratic Party. I am a “leftwing nutcase.”

Feel free to chime in on this theme of Bush vs. Obama.

Robert Stark Interviews Colin Lidell about the Middle East

Here.

This is one of his best interviews yet. This fellow is very bright. He is the associate editor of the Alternative Right blog. Nevertheless, I agreed with everything he says. How come a Leftist keeps agreeing with these Alternative Right guys?
