The US government backs down in Nevada when confronted by heavily armed white rural males unlike anyone else who, if armed, is hammered hard into the ground if they defy our government. So it is in Ukraine: anyone against the elected government, going in armed to the teeth and besieging it and then taking over violently is perfectly fine if it is financed by our government but is evil if the people resisting a coup are doing it when the coup is US-sponsored.
I very well remember the birth of the Black Panther movement in Oakland, California. I knew a number of the Panthers back then. They came up with the novel idea that black people should be allowed to carry guns in public like white people and immediately, they were attacked by the State and pushed down. In Ukraine, the people who voted successfully for the previous president are unhappy about the losers of the election using NATO-financed violence to remove the government and then pass laws rapidly that attack the winners of the election.
EXACTLY like in Egypt which today is run by a very brutal military dictatorship. With US and NATO blessings, of course. Leftist presidential candidate in Egypt sees media bias for Sisi which is an understatement, the media is 100% behind Sisi or else. And having an election where the political party that won the previous election is outlawed over spurious and even insane reasons, is not an election at all.
In the US, we have sham elections because anyone with a tub of money can buy our politicians before, during and after elections and no one is put in jail for this while the Supreme Court gives this a high-five calling it ‘free speech’ even though it is tremendously expensive speech and the tool for bribes is to pay politicians to ‘give speeches’ even if Shoe thrown at Hillary Clinton during Vegas speech.
And why, pray tell, are our politicians going to Vegas to pick up bags of loot? Back to Ukraine where NATO gave the laughable excuse that the coup had to go through because of ‘corruption’ (hahaha) we have some very unhappy people being ‘violent’ which the US is sternly demanding they surrender to the coup or else NATO will attack only Putin has made it crystal clear that if NATO does anything, he will strangle Europe’s economy. And fire on NATO agents, too. And fire on any coup troops sent to kill the demonstrators.
Let’s us review this matter: the US and NATO have said very clearly that the elected leaders of Ukraine and Egypt were EVIL and should be removed violently due to…killing demonstrators. This horror flies in the face of obvious criminal actions by both the Egyptian and Ukraine coups which have been killing people left and right.
And the coup in Egypt is still doing the religious warfare thing just like the Christian right wing in Ukraine: Retired army general wants Egypt’s St. Catherine’s Monastery demolished – Politics – Egypt – Ahram Online: this news not appearing in our media, of course, which totally approves of the coup since the military are crushing the Palestinians in Gaza again.
In May 2012, Ahmed Ragai Attiya obtained 71 administrative orders regarding the demolition of the monastery’s multiple churches, monk cells, gardens and other places of interest on the grounds, which he claims were all built in 2006 and thus not historic, according to Ihab Ramzy, the monastery’s lawyer.
However, in an interview with private channel ONTV on Thursday, Attiya said that he has now used the 71 orders to file an official demolition suit with Ismailiya’s Administrative Court against the monastery and 10 of the Egyptian authorities concerned, including the president, ministers of tourism and antiquities and the governor of South Sinai, where Saint Catherine’s is located.
* Ukraine gives separatists until 0600 GMT Monday to lay down arms
* Kiev angered by death of officer, wounding of others at roadblock
* Russia warns Kiev not to use force against militants
* Fears that confrontation could touch off wider violence
* UN Security Council to meet at Russia’s request
Ukrainian Crisis Not Wasted by Washington Lobbyists who want to do all sorts of very expensive things which we can ill afford because we are going bankrupt but they imagine this is 1963 when the US was totally solvent and had an industrial base and near zero imports.
Finally, 3 killed, one critically injured in shootings at Kansas Jewish centers: the Jewish leadership imagined they had a handle on the far right and could control it via money bribes from casino bosses and newspaper owners and others. I warned them years ago that they would be going into another Holocaust this way but no one listens to me.
Well, religious warfare in the US means Jews will be killed. Muslims are a small minority, too. The Catholic/Protestant divide can reignite suddenly like it did in Ukraine, all it takes is having our economy collapse. Which is why rich people should be very much more interested in sharing the wealth especially with the middle class. The only thing between a guillotine and rich necks is a happy middle class.
An unhappy, ethnic warfare middle class armed to the teeth is very scary as we saw recently in Nevada. The lower classes are already armed and don’t seem to fear death at all. Join the two in a rage and the police will be forced to choose sides ditto the military and I suspect it would not be siding with the rich who look at every possible chance to cheat the police and military out of their pensions, etc. The future is very dark indeed if we keep on this particular path.
