This is one of the most important films you can see, with the crucial missing history that has been censored from western corporate media. Ignorance is not okay.

My consistent view going back to the early 1980s has been that the public’s willful ignorance is not okay, and it is indeed the problem. Ignorant people are easily marshaled into groups, their identities stripped away, their thoughts supplanted by propaganda, and talking points inserted into their mouths by others. It is a severe and widespread problem, perhaps intractable. I meet a dozen per day on social media, and I can say with some authority that they don’t care for sources or facts.

Ukraine on Fire is not a perfect documentary. Better footnotes and citations might have helped to deflect the inevitable criticisms. Slick graphics help the flow visually, and they do keep the pace quick. Oliver Stone was deeply involved and on camera talking directly to participants relating to the 2014 Maidan coup.

I have also written about these events since they occurred documenting each stage for historical accuracy.

One of the main points for western audiences to come to terms with is that Viktor Yanukovych was not the usual “brutal dictator” from the standard script of US regime change color revolutions. He wasn’t nearly brutal enough in going after violent, organized coup leaders right in the center of Kiev. There were no raids on their headquarters, no arrests, and certainly no assassinations of those foreign-backed neo-fascist insurgent leaders. Few “revolutions” elsewhere could have succeeded along those lines without risking severe reprisals by armed authorities.

The film shows how sophisticated the coup plotters were, what challenges they faced, and how they used violence to create martyrs and exploit the media channels, including no fewer than three new television stations that instantly popped up as the protests began in November of 2013.

The filmmakers present the history of Ukraine, its western provinces collaborating openly with Hitler and turning war criminals like Stepan Bandera into national heroes. It shows the history of color revolutions, their ties to US NGOS, that aren’t all that “N” and are pretty much undeserving of the name. The National Endowment for Democracy (sic) opposes democracy around the world wherever the democratic leader denies some US corporate interests. USAID is another alleged “NGO” undeserving of the “N,” which has taken on foreign missions that the CIA used to handle. This color revolution blueprint is consistent, repeats itself, and it relies on a deception that foreign populations are rising up, when it only requires a tiny minority of a given population to make that appearance. The peaceful protests begin, and then the trained violent rioters move in, after some smiling images of solidarity have been produced for American news consumers. It’s happened in Bolivia and Venezuela recently as well. Color revolutions are the American empire’s game plan around the world–to take over with proxies, stooges, lapdogs, puppets.

Nationalism is exploited by extremists on the right, domestically and around the world in targeted nations. The US likes to partner with, train, fund and empower these violent extremists in order to get footholds for US corporations. It’s the main job of far too large a portion of the US government today.

 

Doomsday-Clock-2016

 

These destabilizations and US belligerence have escalated a new Cold War. Russia is on notice and has modernized its nuclear arsenal. China is on notice, with US support for Hong Kong rioters as well as the “breakaway province” of Taiwan, and its incursions into the South China Sea. These provocations are a source of eternal hostility, an arms race, and hair-trigger alerts.

The US and its allies, particularly NATO, continue to stir up as much trouble as they can, while their own populations know next to nothing about what is going on with their tax dollars. That’s a problem.

Americans suddenly have a lot to say about Ukraine with the new Impeachment inquiry. Try asking a few of them if they know about any of this, or if they can even locate Ukraine on a map?

In early 2014 the United States and Europe made deals with Ukrainian fascists to overthrow the democratically elected Yanukovych government.  These fascists have paramilitary organizations of violent thugs (Right Sector, Svoboda, et al.). These have been brought into the new so-called “National Guard” and are now being trained by US military.

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

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?

 

Some Wile E. Coyote level supergenius, by the name “Jack Patterson,” thinks that spouting buzzwords is equivalent to knowing what one is talking about. He enjoys one word witticisms like “disinformation” and “provocateur,” without demonstrating any actual knowledge behind any of his quite annoying utterances on Twitter. So this is my fuck off post to him. He doesn’t believe Nazis have taken over Ukraine, probably because his television hasn’t done that bit of thinking for him. Well here’s BBC:

Here’s the wrecking crew awarded large State Department bonuses straight from Asst. Secretary of state Victoria Nuland:

Now for the Nazis!

Oleh Tyahnybok, Svboda Party leader:

Oleh Tyahnybok, has called for the liberation of his country from the “Muscovite-Jewish mafia.” After the 2010 conviction of the Nazi death camp guard John Demjanjuk for his supporting role in the death of nearly 30,000 people at the Sobibor camp, Tyahnybok rushed to Germany to declare him a hero who was “fighting for truth.” In the Ukrainian parliament, where Svoboda holds an unprecedented 37 seats, Tyahnybok’s deputy Yuriy Mykhalchyshyn is fond of quoting Joseph Goebbels – he has even founded a think tank originally called “the Joseph Goebbels Political Research Center.”
Is the US backing Neo-Nazis in Ukraine?

John McCain and other state department members have troubling ties to the ultra-nationalist Svoboda party

Current PM, “Yats,” so beloved by Dick Cheney’s former adviser, Victoria Nuland, said:

Those sub-humans are Ukrainian citizens living in the east who prefer to speak Russian, as that’s their language. The Kiev coup government outlawed Russian as a language, and their brown shirt thugs have violently attacked Parliamentary speakers who attempt to speak Russian. They are, of course, now bombing the civilians in the east with planes and artillery.

But there’s so, so much more, if one actually cares to investigate what they’re talking about before sticking a dog-shit covered foot in his mouth.

The Nazi “Right Sector” mass murder in Odessa is a shockingly brutal example of neo-nazi footsoldiers in action:

Nazi tactics have been front and center since the Maidan sniper incident where Maidan side snipers shot people on both sides, all the while accusing the Ukraine government of doing the shooting:

I guess swastikas plastered all over Kiev and marching goon squads intimidating everyone in their paths is too subtle?

Joe Giambrone | May 11, 2014

What happened on May 2nd of this year in Odessa, Ukraine, was a complex event that has been glossed over by most news sources. The US corporate coverage has been criminal in its demonization of anti-Maidan/anti-coup activists. The propaganda narrative has even attempted to blame the victims for starting the fires that allegedly killed them. This is two levels removed from reality, and perhaps even three.

Much more information is available than has been reported in America’s criminally-complicit mainstream news. But even alternative journals have failed to pursue the most damning, morally repugnant aspect to this story: who started the violence, and why?

When a massacre happens the horrors of the atrocities tend to distract the public’s attention from the details of how it came to be in the first place. This is known to provocateurs, be they in Kiev, Moscow or in Langley Virginia. Langley is the home base of the Central Intelligence Agency, of course. The CIA director visited Kiev, confirmed by the White House on April 15th, and “dozens” of CIA agents are reported to be in Ukraine “advising” the unelected coup regime as I type this.

On May 2nd a series of events occurred that can be pieced together from the numerous videos and photographs. These show undercover police provocateurs dressed up as anti-Maidan/pro-Russian activists, but these are coordinated by a uniformed officer. The officer is identified, at Oriental Review, as “Odessa Interior ministry branch Colonel Dmitry Fucheji.”

ukraine-provocateur-officer (1)

Confirmation and analysis is provided by Russian news anchor Pavel Pchelkin at Channel One Russia. The gunmen, allegedly from the “pro-Russian” side were undercover agents coordinated by the Ukrainian interior ministry. A platoon of approximately 30 armed undercover agents fired numerous rounds at the football crowds, who were known to be “pro unity” or “pro Ukraine” and aligned with the Maidan coup government. The undercover/gunmen started a street battle from behind police lines, hiding behind a wall of officers and instigating the football crowd to attack them.

The neo-Nazi Right Sector joined the enraged football crowd, and together they pursued these provocateurs – who were dressed similarly to “pro-Russian” protesters – pursuing them all the way back to the Union hall, where the actual non-violent anti-Maidan activists had set up camp. Once this violence had begun it was easily turned against the real anti-Maidan activists, and the police provocateurs disappeared back into the police brigades.

Further confirmation comes from a Ukrainian official, acting Prosecutor General Oleh Makhnitsky:

“This action [in Odessa] was not prepared at some internal level, it was a well-planned and coordinated action in which some authorities’ representatives have taken part.”

This is a false flag event.

Undercover provocateurs shot at the football crowds to initiate the violence.

The violence was led and drawn back toward the political targets: the anti-Maidan activists.

Mass murder followed.

The next level of reality that intrudes upon and discredits Western media reporting is the idea that the fires did the killing. This is also false. The victims inside the union hall were mostly murdered with gunshots, as well as strangled to death by the neo-Nazi Right Sector storm troopers, who also were seen inside the building waving flags and cheering.

Most of the bodies seen in photographs were burned in order to hide evidence of gunshot wounds (warning: graphic photographs). This is also not reported across the media spectrum, as if it were of no importance. If the fire is to blame, this is akin to an act of nature, rather than a series of cold-blooded murders by rampaging neo-Nazi thugs allied with our supposed good buddies in Kiev.

Western media, therefore, has become a complicit propaganda organ in spinning narratives for the US State Department and its Nazi partners in the Ukraine. It truly sickens me the depravity and gall of these psychopaths (in both nations) who, in broad daylight, support the worst of the worst, war criminals, mass murderers, racist violent lunatics. This has been true of Syria and Libya prior, and now it is true in the Ukraine.

These imperial games do not amuse the Russians, of course. Russia has an intimate history with Naziism in World War Two. More Russians died in that war than did Americans, Brits, Japanese or Germans. The US/EU empowerment of the most violent, sadistic and murderous forces in Ukraine has driven the world to a true crisis point.

Already $3.2Bn has been dumped on the neo-Nazi unelected coup government, and Obama has knowingly and deceitfully called them “duly elected.”

Since when is gaining power through Molotov cocktails, snipers and bludgeoning the police considered “duly elected?”

This neo-Nazi power seizure has been a US project for quite a while now. Obama’s neo-con strategist, Victoria Nuland, has bragged that $5Bn of US tax money has been poured into Ukraine since the fall of the Soviet Union in order to influence the political system there. Nuland was caught on tape choosing “Yats” to be the frontman for US/NATO interests.
Arseniy Yatsenuk’s own foundation website prominently lists, as William Blum noted:

NATO, the National Endowment for Democracy, the US State Department, Chatham House (Royal Institute of International Affairs in the UK), the German Marshall Fund (a think tank founded by the German government in honor of the US Marshall Plan), as well as a couple of international banks. Is any comment needed?

US meddling in the 2004 Ukrainian elections was already exposed. The US corporate usual suspects are salivating on setting up shop in their new Nazi utopia.

This latest manifestation of covert US foreign policy should shock the entire world to its core and cause them to question just about every assumption they may have had about the US. Actual voting – democracy – is demonized in Crimea and in the other eastern provinces of Ukraine, while firebomb tossing Nazi psychopaths, who gleefully rape and strangle to death pregnant women, are promised $27Bn in IMF graft and loan guarantees to help cement their power over Kiev.

That message couldn’t be clearer.

These people are still fighting WW2 in Ukraine, and the USA just entered on the side of Adolf Hitler.  As they say, “You can’t write this shit.”  It’s too absurd, couched in a Big Lie, and now reaching genocidal proportions.  The Odessa mass killing spree was accompanied by hate speech on Twitter and elsewhere about extermination and comparing Russian speakers to insects.  This is the most disturbing can of worms the US has opened in a long time, and even Israel had to take pause and reject further escalation, which would help empower these neo-nazi maniacs even further.

Here Nuland and John McCain pose with a Ukraine Nazi thug, the recipient of US taxpayer graft and (ridiculous) political cover.

(published at Activist Post  & Foreign Policy Journal)

The neo-fascist coup d’etat that overthrew the democratically elected government of Ukraine has the President of the United States firmly on board.  Obama’s support for this illegitimate, unlawful transfer of power in Ukraine has reached schizophrenic heights as an Executive Order has proclaimed a “national emergency” in defense of the Molotov tossing, spiked bat-swinging Neo-Nazis of Kiev.  As Secretary of State John Kerry threatens to escalate the East/West conflict in cryptic allusions, the world now awaits the possibility of World War.  US warships, planes and troops continue to scurry toward the region.

What Obama has done is absurd.  There is no more diplomatic way of stating it.  His hypocrisy and support for clearly illegitimate and unelected Ukrainian leaders now threatens the freedom, and lives, of Americans who call out this insanity, such as yours truly in this very article.  Obama’s official embrace of the ridiculous rivals his predecessors, Bush and Cheney.  This is no coincidence.  The architect of the Ukraine regime change plan was none other than Dick Cheney’s former adviser and Obama’s current Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland.  The Project for a New American Century lurches forward like Frankenstein’s monster.

“I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, find that the actions and policies of persons — including persons who have asserted governmental authority in the Crimean region without the authorization of the Government of Ukraine — that undermine democratic processes and institutions in Ukraine; threaten its peace, security, stability, sovereignty, and territorial integrity; and contribute to the misappropriation of its assets, constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.”

The “Government of Ukraine” (nice use of CAPS) has just been installed via chaotic street battles and a mysterious sniper, apparently brought in by the neo-nazi Maidan leaders.  The elected President of Ukraine has fled to Russia, leaving a power vacuum where Obama’s so-called “Government of Ukraine” enjoys no actual democratic legitimacy.  This government was simply not elected by anyone.  Period.  Full stop.

However, Victoria Nuland has copped to spending $5 Billion of U.S. taxpayer money to achieve this goal and to install this regime.  The US State Department has been instrumental in deciding who would and who would not become Obama’s current “Government of Ukraine.”  This flagrantly gratuitous fraud is backed up by Executive threats of property seizure and even escalation toward war.

nuland-mccain-Tyahnybok-small[Oleh Tyahnybok, Victoria Nuland, John McCain]

Crimea, which has yet been unaffected by the brutal street violence of Kiev, has arranged a popular referendum — an actual vote of the people — to decide whether they want to remain a part of Victoria Nuland and Barack Obama’s little neo-fascist experiment.  The people of Crimea may choose independence or protection by Russia, but this is not to be permitted by Washington.

“There will be a [U.S.] response of some kind to the [Crimean] referendum itself… If there is no sign [from Russia] of any capacity to respond to this issue … there will be a very serious series of steps on Monday.”
-John Kerry, 3.13.2014

So, buckle down, America.  There’s currently a “national emergency” that people in a tiny region half a world away may vote the wrong way, the way that Washington officially dislikes.  Update: Apparently they have, with 95% of Crimea in favor of secession from Ukraine in preliminary polling.

Crimea has always been a part of the Russian sphere of influence, as it has majority Russian ancestry.  The Russians, predictably, want to keep their port on the Black Sea.  NATO/Washington wants to take away this naval port.  If you can imagine a game of Risk in play, this is simply a matter of moving a few military resources around on a map to embolden one and to strategically weaken the other.

Add to that Chevron’s holdings in Ukraine (and other US multinationals) with a nice profitable lease to frack the hell out of the country and extract natural gas for the next 50 years, and then we have a very obvious, tired old story of resource wars and strategic one-upsmanship.  That and the IMF plan to indebt the people of Ukraine for many more billions in loans and impose “austerity” on their vital services.  This is the “Economic Hitman” formula employed countless times around the world and already written about extensively.  These are the forces in play, fun and games and billions to be extracted.

Plan Ukraine has absolutely nothing to do with democracy, with freedom, with vision, with any of the lofty rhetorical snake shit that readily squirts out of American television sets.

Will Ukraine look a lot like Syria in six months? 

These neo-con warmongers, like John McCain and Victoria Nuland, had a lot of good chuckles empowering Al Qaeda in Syria in broad daylight, their junior partner Saudi Arabia doing most of the covert dirty work.  Civilians on the ground are at the most risk, but Crimea so far appears to be relatively secure.  That would be Russia’s doing.

Neo-con men like Barack, in addition to staggering hypocrisy, can be quite petulant and vindictive in their policymaking.  Here’s the meat of his latest threat against the people of the world, including the reader:

“…any person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State:

(i) to be responsible for or complicit in, or to have engaged in, directly or indirectly, any of the following:

(A) actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions in Ukraine;”

That designation would include Nuland, McCain, Kerry and Obama himself if anyone was keeping track.  But Caesar’s diktats are subject to Caesar’s interpretation.  Caesar’s laws are to be applied in the manner Caesar prefers.  Law is reduced to whim now, and it doesn’t really have to make sense; does it?
