Crimea River…..

Looks like it’s on in the Ukraine.  The Russian Vice Admiral has declared war.

As of this writing, it’s 6:30pm in the Heartland, and just about 3 hours our Feckless Leader, Barack Obama, came out on national news (they even broke into Judge Judy’s show for this) threatening that “there would be costs” if Putin made his move.

And Putin did.

So, what now?

Let’s look at this situation about as objectively as we can.  Let’s pretend for a minute that this whole Ukrainian uprising thing wasn’t fomented, backed and funded by US.  Yes, us. (http://consortiumnews.com/2014/02/23/neocons-and-the-ukraine-coup/)  And let’s pretend that we have no interest in throwing in our favorite Central Banking puppet as a new Prime Minister or President just to prop up the dollar (http://www.prisonplanet.com/central-banker-appointed-as-prime-minister-of-ukraine.html).  Let’s even pretend that we have no interest in their energy reserves (http://globalresearch.ca/articles/ENG412A.html).  All that aside, what could we possibly gain from backing the Ukraine in the face of Putin?

Yep.

Nothing.

Regardless of what the agenda-complicit media spins the Ukrainian chaos into, let’s not forget that the United States has NO BUSINESS providing any sort of military intervention.  What’s happening in the Ukraine is an internal matter involving the people of the Ukraine and,now, Russia.  While I think the rioting is horrendous and the families of those protesters killed should have our sympathies, WE have no need to go any further.  We do not need to send billions in aid when we have just decimated our own military (http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/02/24/pentagon-budget-sequestration-army-size/5775291/).  We do not need to get involved in THEIR politics.  And we most certainly do not need to support them in this war with our troops.

So, that begs the question: what are the “costs” that Obama is talking about?

If this is taken before the NATO Security Council, it will be bounced, because Ukraine is not a NATO country.  If it’s taken to the UN, Russia sits on the Security Council there, so how do you think THAT will go?  And if Obama decides to do the DUMBEST thing possible and actually intervene with military aid,  that could quite possibly be the tipping point for a revolution here at home.

Again, I ask:  what are the “costs” Obama is talking about?  What cards could he possibly have to play?  We all know that our only interest in the Ukraine is what it can provide for us.  If this same thing was happening in Great Britain and the Scots suddenly decided to revolt (hey, it’s comin’)  no one would give a shit because they have nothing we want.

This situation will become much, much worse before it gets better, and I hope that we can stay far enough removed from it as to not have those “costs” reflected here at home.  As they say, the situation is “fluid” and it will be worth watching to see how it plays out.

As ever, eyes open.  It’s gonna get weird…..

  2. Well if you’re pretending like the USA did not back the Ukrainian uprising, you might as well pretend that the news you hear – no matter which station you tune in to – is actually reporting the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. I mean … since it’s all make-believe. I’m sorry, do I sound like a person who doesn’t quite listen to or believe everything that’s reported as “news” on USA TV? Interesting post. But if I’m being honest, I have to say, news or no news – I don’t really like that Putin. That POOT-IN as in big fart!!!

  3. Of course the US backed the Ukrainian uprising–just track the movements of Victoria Nuland over the last six months. And I agree- there is no news station that is actually reporting the “news” or the truth, for that matter. I’m old enough to remember when being a member of the Fifth Estate actually MEANT something, when journalists were Truth’s watchdogs. There are no Woodward and Bernsteins left, sad to say. That’s why it is up to the rest of us to report what we can, share information, and exchange ideas to get AT the truth, because I’m afraid that’s as close as we’ll ever get…..Thanks for your comment…..Av
