I get why Minitrue is busily ignoring everything except their slanted, dishonest ‘reports’ on the deal in Ferguson, but why is Foxnews and the righty newspapers ignoring war in Ukraine?
So Ukrainians are saying they blew up a Russian armored column.
Russia denies it.
What nobody, so far as I can tell, is denying is that the Russian “aid” convoy stopped before entering Ukraine.
Supposedly, the ‘aid’ convoy was mostly empty.
The BBC’s Steve Rosenberg, who has been following the convoy, says some of the lorries were opened up for the media on Friday, and the main thing that struck him was how empty many of the vehicles were
I’m not sure what the hell is going on.
I figure the aid convoy was mostly empty so it could be ‘attacked by Ukrainian forces’ so Tsar Putin I could then go to the aid of the ‘aid’ convoy.
But if so, why did the armored convoy enter Ukraine, and having entered Ukraine and been destroyed, why is Tsar Putin I denying it?
You’d think that Tsar Putin I would take that as an act of war.
Unless some Russian commander didn’t get the word to stop and got his ass kicked so Tsar Putin I doesn’t want to look weak so therefore, no column was destroyed.
From the link below
Officially the Russian Ministry of Defense has denied the convoy exists/crossed – but the evidence is as conclusive as it could be from the tweets/snaps by the Guardian/London Telegraph/Novy Vremya.
One thing that’s actually making sense in the whole thing is that Ukraine is starting to realize they’re on their own.
And, more remarkably, has been the muted reaction from the West and indeed from the Western media. Some 4-5 weeks ago, the White House PR machine would have been going into overdrive, and warning of new sanctions iterations in the pipeline unless Russia “de-escalated.” Thus far nothing we have seen next to nothing of note….
Wait, that’s not weird, that’s been absolutely obvious for a long time now. Obama can’t be assed to do his job and EUnuchs need Russian energy.
For Ukraine, that probably means that its fate is now in its own hands – don’t wait for its EU brothers to ride to the rescue, or the US for that matter which is currently focused elsewhere. The EU is divided anyway, and ineffective, and has been subject to “divide and rule” from Russia which has been using its own business leverage, “patronage,” and contacts to full effect over recent months.
Unless some neighboring, former SSRs are going to get involved.
Once again I’m struck at how unlikely it is that I’m rooting for Germany to get all warlike.
It’s a weird old end of civilization.
One thing, this guy is realizing something that’s been obvious for a while now.
It would seem as though Russia is goading/testing the West – to see the Western sanctions response.
Well duh. There’s a reason I’ve been calling it Sudetenland. That was Herr Hitler testing France and England and finding them wanting.
It’s a scary time and we have the worst POTUS to handle it.
The world is blowing up and Obama cannot handle it, America is looking a little blowed up (I’m surprised the riots haven’t spread, I suppose there’s still tomorrow) and Obama wants to handle that.
By attacking me, why do you think his DHS has been preparing to fight the Tea Party?
Interesting times. I only hope we look back and laugh.
