25 Recent Events in Ukraine the U.S. Wants You To Forget

Here are 25 recent events, or data points, that our rulers hope we forget when they blame the collapse of the old world order on Russia:

  1. US spent $5 billion to destabilize Ukraine, not to mention the millions NGOs spent on “opposition groups“. The State Department was even caught playing kingmaker in Ukraine in secret recordings during the takeover.
  2. November 21st, 2013 - Ukraine’s President abandons an agreement on closer trade ties with EU, instead seeking closer cooperation with Russia. Violent pro-EU protests begin to organize.
  3. December 17th, 2013 - Putin offers to buy $15bn of Ukrainian debt and discount the price of Russian gas by about a third.
  4. February 2014 – Violence of coup peaks on the 20th. On 22nd protesters took control of Kiev and Parliament votes to remove president from power.
  5. February 23rd – New interim government named, replaces head of Ukraine central bank.
  6. March 6th – Obama signs national emergency executive order to punish Ukrainians that ”undermine democratic processes and institutions” of the coup government in Ukraine. You can’t make this stuff up.
  7. March 16th – Crimea holds voter referendum to split from coup government in Kiev and ally with Russia, passes by over 95%.
  8. March 20th – Obama announces more unilateral sanctions on Russia

Obama orders Pentagon advisers to Ukraine to fend off Putin-backed rebels

 

Fucking Nazis.  To help fucking Nazis.

Nazis.

Hey America – just on principle this has got to be a low point, historically speaking?

A team of Pentagon officials is heading to Ukraine to help the country rebuild its fractured military, a mission that lawmakers and analysts expect will result in recommendations for greater military assistance…

PS

Apparently Yatsenyuk threw a hissy fit in the parliament and resigned! Were they not Hitlerian enough for this motherfucker’s taste?  Or perhaps he stole enough US tax money and IMF loan cash so that it’s not worth the risk anymore?

Lugansk Aerial Bombing by Ukraine Air Force, June 4, 2014

 

New York Times has audio, allegedly from E. Ukraine (via the Nazi regime intelligence), where it appears to be a mistaken shoot down. The voices on the recording are unsure what was shot down, and try to piece together evidence from the crash:

Ukraine released what it said was audio from phone calls between rebels and Russian officers after the downing of Malaysia Airlines 17. In one call, a rebel says, “We have just shot down a plane.”

Note: “what it said.” There is zero evidence that the voices belong to any “Russian officers.”

Note to airlines – don’t fly over war zones where people are being bombed from the air? I guess that would make too much sense.

The Plot Thickens

 Times of Israel reported:

Pledging allegiance to ISIL, ‘Supporters of the Islamic State in Bayt al-Maqdis’ claims attacks in Hebron, Gaza

A new Palestinian jihadist group pledging allegiance to the Islamic State (formerly known as ISIL) has claimed responsibility for the killing of three Israeli teenagers last month in the West Bank, as well as other recent deadly attacks against Israeli soldiers and civilians.

In a statement posted on jihadi websites Tuesday, the Supporters of the Islamic State in Bayt al-Maqdis said it was behind the capture and killing of “the three soldiers” in Hebron (actually, it was in the nearby Etzion bloc), sniper attacks in Hebron andTarqumia, and missile launches from Gaza into Israel a month and a half ago.

Let’s take a step back here and recap where this ISIL/ISIS got its start: the US/Saudi/Qatari/Turkish assault on Syria. These terror groups have been aided and abetted by the US empire, armed to the teeth and imported in to wreak havoc on Syria and now on Iraq. This has been a project of the United States with its key mideast allies. Now they are running amok across the middle east, including — apparently — recruiting soldiers in Gaza.

A mixed bag of mutants.

Much feels familiar in this next installment, the fifth or so generally and the second with this semi-relaunched cast.

However, the secret weapon in Days fo Future Past is Mystique, the sexy blue mutating Jennifer Lawrence character. The story hangs on Mystique and her actions, set up with an incident from the distant past, 1973, and then hinging on a time travel plot to alter history. Time travel can be interesting or cheezy, and this one is both. Laughs are played, anachronisms, one-liners. It’s Wolverine who gets the call, as he’s the only mutant with the wear and tear to survive the brain mangling.

It’s lighthearted, but it’s also very, very talky. The first half borders on obligatory yawns with the amount of exposition coming out of the mouths of the mutants. We’ve got old Xavier and young Xavier, Magneto and the young one. And everyone constantly needs to be brought up to speed.

As they say, “show don’t tell;” it doesn’t seem to have hurt this production with $700M in box office so far to show. There’s a do as I say, not as I do, sensibility in Hollywood, which is filled with know-nothing smarmy know-it-alls.

xmen-days-of-future-past-poster-mystique

 

Back on track – the second half picks up. Actually the break-in to the Pentagon is a good adrenalin boost, with a unique scene involving a speedy mutant who’s a lot of fun to watch.

In the interest of avoiding spoilers, I won’t say much more, except for this. The film maintains a strong moral compass on the side of peace and non-violence. For that I was grateful (and surprised), and impressed. Much is made over the act of killing, killing one man. To kill one is to initiate a war. Killing and war are so closely related, and the mindset of a murderer is the mindset of a soldier. That was unexpected, and it had me by the end of the film hanging on the plot.

I’d rate the previous film First Class a tad higher than Days of Future Past. This owes to the scattered plot and diffused focus. The battle with giant robot drones was a letdown too, more sound and fury signifying not much.

On second thought, there is a theme involving power and weapons. The weapons have grown beyond the ability to control them. This makes sense in the 1973 world, but is less clear in the current one. The supposed modern timeline was a bit too reliant on special effects extravaganzas, and these distract. The blitzkrieg of CGI reduces the whole thing to video game sensibility, and the same barrage we see in every modern Hollywood FX movie.  The director here is a bit smarter than most, but relying on the same old big light show at the end was disappointing.

4/5

Good article on propaganda from Eric Zuesse today.

Media Lies and The Propaganda War about Ukraine

The public in the West are being played for fools, and it’s now becoming so blatant, even worse than the lies that produced the scandalously vile invasion of Iraq (which our aristocratically controlled media also fooled the masses into supporting), so that the result will be either masses in “democratic” countries who really are fools, and who don’t at all hold the press to account for having raped their minds, or else it will be mass boycotts of the major “news” media, to protest it, and to change it — so as to restore democracy to America.

If boycotts of the press don’t soon start, democracy has already ended here, because, ever since we invaded Iraq in 2003, we’re already way past the time when there should be a mass boycott by Americans of their major “news” media — media that lie to them so brazenly, and so repeatedly, for so long.

Russian Bombers Fly Within 50 Miles Of California Coast

It’s okay for US warships to patrol the Black Sea, less than 50 miles from Russian territory. Because we’re drunk on our own power, so America can do whatever, wherever, for however much it wants.

I wonder what was on board those Russian bombers? Seems like a reasonable question.

Ukraine is now in the throes of civil war with reports of white phosphorous banned chemical weapons being used against separatists in the East. A Ukraine government plane was also shot down recently with 49 reported on board. The situation is escalating, with full US support given to the coup regime whose new president was a former US State Department agent.

The Ukraine situation was directly instigated, aided and abetted by Victoria Nuland, Barack Obama, John Kerry et al.  Russia quite rightly sees this as an attack on its interests.

World economic system is ‘madness’, puts money ahead of people, 

It’s enough to get me to go to church. You go, Pope Francis…

“We discard a whole generation to maintain an economic system that no longer endures, a system that to survive has to make war, as the big empires have always done,” he said.

Washington is supplying some Syrian rebels with both “lethal and non-lethal” aid, according to National Security Adviser Susan Rice…

Three years and 160,000 dead later Obama decides to start dumping BILLIONS in more weapons on the Syrian insurgents.  The great peacemaker is just getting ramped up.  His Jihadi allies, armed through Saudi, Qatar Turkey and Libya have failed  (good), and so the US has thrown the pretense of law and treaties straight out the window.

“The US is “the single largest contributor of humanitarian assistance, providing over $1.7 billion” in assistance, Rice told CNN.”

Humanitarian.  Right. Like those humanitarian nerve gas bombs Al Nusra was using in its false flag attacks last year.  We’re all about humanitarianism while ramping up a bloody civil war so that Washington gets its way and topples a Russian ally on the Mediterranean.

US admits sending ‘lethal aid’ to Syrian rebels

Sorry Americans, you can’t be that fucking deluded and gullible.  The war is funded and armed from outside Syria.  It is an imperial project, a meat grinder allied with extremist Al Qaeda fanatics, who are conveniently ready to die fighting on America’s side this time.  Do the fucking math.

This is a short film I helped produce at Central Michigan University. I assisted as a grip and some gaffing work during the filming, but ultimately I was responsible for the sound design of the second half of the film; the alien side. I used Pro Tools HD to manipulate sound effects and some Foley sounds to line up with the actions portrayed on the screen. I hope you enjoy.
