Contrary. Mostly German-speaking Moravian (Austro/Czech) - by way of England.
Ahh! We have encountered a logician!
"Everyone" is NATO parrots at CNN and the Washington Post, both of which factually hire CIA staff - not conspiracy ad hominem.
Evidence. Dear child, where is there evidence? Were there satellite photos, they'd be on every Telescreen in Oceania, 24 hours a day.
Besides, do you actually believe:
- Russia would send armoured ground forces without air support?
- That such forces would not be piffling in the east for a couple weeks, but once committed would have taken Kiev in a mater of 2-4 days?
You select one particle of my compound statement, which was intended to provide context for analysis, not a "solution".
You are either a sub-par thinker, or a troll.
The US media is now in full ass-clown mode.
Russia has invaded nothing. Sat photos? I thought so:
Apparently all those T-90 tanks only fly in by night and their cloaking devices prevent any picture of them appearing anywhere.
The nuke bullshit comes from a collapsing Oligarch, who's hold on "NATO intervention" as a tactic becomes weaker by the minute, and thus his desperate squawking. Poor little Joe Biden's son will have to make his next millions by backing another corrupt scheme, elsewhere on the globe.
Get this straight: Russia has not provided any lethal support for breakaway regions in the Ukraine civil war.
Ukraine is not a historical entity prior to Imperial manoeuvrings in the late 19th century between Austria, Prussia and Russia. Now it is being used as the same, 150 years later, to hobble Russian gas export and contain the European pivot away from the dollar and American hegemony.
Wine comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you, and I sigh.
-- William Butler Yeats
Intended to divide. You speak of a solidarity - but argue for the conceptualization of an "other".
I have yet to hear George Bush, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell or George Tenet weigh in on the Russia/Ukraine conflict. Or did you mean someone else?
Because Angela Merkel and Francois Hollande are not exactly the first people I think of when I hear the term "neo-con."
C'mon. Victoria Neuland, dummy. Appointed under Hillary. You don't think of Hillary as a "neo-con" - but there she is! Appointing the Wife of Robert Kagan and former foreign policy advisor of... Dick Cheney! To the role of Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs.
Or you don't remember her little phone call? "Fuck the EU!"
Neo-con rim job. You don't see it, because the distortion field that Cheney described is in full-effect. You believe that an evil, Russian potentate wants to slowly steal your freedoms - not that a gang of pirates took over the former Russian state of Ukraine - using actual NAZIS to do it.
The aide said that guys like me were "in what we call the reality-based community," which he defined as people who "believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality."
The original capital of the Rus, in the foundation of the state around 100 AD, was Kiev. No entity "Ukraine" existed. I figure even IF the Russians were agressive, they have a better claim on that land than the so-called Hebrews do on Palestine.
It's not just to fuck with darkies and commies any more.
This also from an interview Merkel gave to public German TV yesterday:
A solution must be found to the Ukraine crisis that does not hurt Russia and which the Ukrainian people must choose for themselves, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Sunday.
"There must be dialogue. There can only be a political solution. There won't be a military solution to this conflict," she said.
On Saturday, her vice chancellor Sigmar Gabriel had suggested that establishing a federal Ukraine was the only viable solution to the crisis pitting Kiev against pro-Russian separatists.
Merkel said that if Ukraine opted to rejoin the Eurasian Union with Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia, then Europe would not make "a huge conflict" out of it.
Especially the last point is clearly a big step back from the earlier all out "Ukraine is EU" position.
Additionally to the economic side, pressure on Merkel also grows because there is more and more doubt, even in German mainstream media, about the veracity of the Ukrainian propaganda and about the destruction of flight MH17. Why is there is no news about it? Is there a coverup (in German)?
You see what you want to see.
Just one point: Africa is in the aftermath of Colonial destruction and neon-colonial extraction. That has far more relevance than the practice of religion.
All people on earth are made of the same mixture of inclinations and inspirations. The mental proposition of a theology does little to change this, but provides one framework for justifying how desires are fulfilled.
God's grace arrives as a mystical occurrence, not the mental and emotional identification with theological proposition. "Morality" is how one behaves towards the creation, so that the opportunity to recognise the arrival of this grace is not clouded, or missed. Nobody can direct God, all are at the quality of absolute mercy. That is the root of real humility - the moral virtue from which all others are sustained.
Angela is not saying this anymore. Russia as resources and markets is necessary for an Industrial Germany. A de-industrialized US? Not so much...
The Kiev government are a coalition of hyper-rich oligarchs, wielding explicitly fascist militia. It is like Goldman Sachs running a country with the help of Blackwater and the KKK. The US is involved to own the gas-pipe to Europe. Look at where Joe Biden's son is, and what he is doing.
As to a WMD Neo-Con-Job?
The NATO commander making accusation, and touting photos no one has seen? He declared Saddam's WMD as "fact".
The NYT "reporter" putting this into public record? Co-author with Judith Miller on the famous lies of 2003.
I have so little control, posing from my phone..
Same EXACT crew who declared Iraqi WMD confirmed fact.
How many times will you be neo-conned, by the "bogey-man dictator" ploy?
