So, if 99.99% of war crimes are committed by one side, and .o1% are committed by the other side, the Amnesty International conclusion is “fair and balanced” enough to say “Both sides”???
Just one more institution succumbing to despicable Orwellian newspeak, yet still expects to be regarded with credibility.
“HAVE YOU NO SHAME?” Same goes for OSCE, Obama, Biden, Kerry, McCain, Nuland, US Congress.
The attacks are against “pro-Russian Ukrainians”, not military targets, nor even the specific government buildings taken over by the locals. Apparently occupying government buildings is now a capital crime in Ukraine (except in Kiev’s Maidan). The Western propaganda is hysterically and universally and immediately Anti-PUTIN, not anti-Strelkov.
The agenda seems to be to PROVOKE a Soviet-style reaction by Russia, which can be SOLD by PROPAGANDA as “another Russian invasion of a US ally.” Despite this explanation, Crimea was re-affiliated with mother Russia by overwhelming popular support, with absolute minimum casualties, in contrast to Kiev’s attempts to re-affiliate Donbass. If Russia can be maneuvered to be perceived as brutally invading Ukraine “against international law”, NATO would be “required” to respond with direct attacks on Russia from East European forward NATO bases, which were installed with full preparatory logistics (“purely defensively” of course). Now these bases are being quietly (i.e.: ignored by MSM) readied with increased aircraft, and “symbolic” transfers of elite military units, from the Baltic to the Balkans.
Now, the Ukrainian army has been surreptitiously shelling RUSSIAN territory near Rostov, while Western media is claiming that Russia is building up forces on the border and shelling Ukraine FROM Russia.
The GOAL is apparently ALL OUT WAR with Russia and forcible retaking of Crimea. Undoubtedly with the objective of disabling Russia’s Black Sea fleet, giving NATO total DIRECT control of the Black Sea access route to Caspian Oil & Gas reserves, with or without Russian Pipelines.
US doesn’t want a cease fire, nor will it be satisfied with a Ukraine Confederation including Donbass. It is committed to military confrontation. US wants the GAS. It wants an excuse for inflating the petrodollar, and it needs cover to avoid the US economy from tanking, especially before the November US elections. It just needs to catch the public up with the decision already made.
If this is the strategy, it is becoming desperate, especially with the breakup of the junta government. The Right Wing Svoboda has bolted. UDAR has no influence. The Tymoshenko-proxy PM has quit. Now, the war will have to accelerate, and become more like Syria, with increasingly random Right Sektor atrocities, at the direction of the CIA. ESPECIALLY if MH17 is shown to be a failed US false flag.
Something will have to occur to generate sufficient outrage to start a full scale NATO-Russian war. The West seems to be hard at work in the propaganda arena. The current tack continues to be trying to provoke Putin to make a drastic move. But, so far, Putin seems to have figured that out! He is presenting HIS evidence about MH17, while quietly arming Donbass with defensive weaponry against the civilian terror bombing by Kiev in such a way as to maintain some thin deniability. He cannot allow the West to attack his flank and do nothing.
Each human-shaped figure has been randomly selected, and scattered in the box, with broken limbs and bright red fillings, all mixed together, in a surprise explosion of chocolate, creamy red filling, and powdered sugar. You never know what’s coming next!
An arm, a leg. Sometimes, you will see the insides just gushing out. Each box, each day, a different, mind-numbing experience.
Not since the days of your grandparents, has this tribute to the past been made available, thanks to the Roshen Factory in LVIV. Try to fit the pieces back together! It’s impossible!
You will never forget the first time you see this assortment. Make sure your children are aware of this new line of products from Lviv. Make them remember.
Look for new assortments coming in the near future: Donetsk, Slavyansk, and Donbass…
PLUS “FASCISTI”… the secret new flavor you HAVE TO try !!
For many persons, the Blue and Yellow piece, turns bitter in the mouth.
Be cautious when eating.
DO NOT throw away the one piece covered in Red White and Blue foil.
It is a preservative. It is the only thing keeping the chocolate from turning rotten.

***ETHNIC MEXICANS IN TEXAS HAVE OVERTHROWN THE GOVERNMENT OF GOVERNOR RICK PERRY***
Violent demonstrations in San Antonio, escalating since November, have left 100 dead, including 17 Texas Rangers. The Alamo has been burned and dismantled by demonstrators using Molotov cocktails, and adobe blocks from the structure to hurl at the Rangers. The Chinese Communist government, while denying any involvement, have recruited ethnic Mexican nationals to demand an end to the dictatorial interference by Barack Obama and the American Fascist government in Washington DC to keep Texas in the American Union and sphere of influence. “America has no right to interfere in the activities of Texas” despite significant historical ties, said the Chinese Foreign Ministry. Secret tape recordings disclosed by WikiLeaks reveal the PRC has spent $5Billion Yuan in fomenting ethnic unrest in the region, leading to demonstrations which began in November, but became violent last week. Perry is assumed to have ordered the Texas Rangers to retake the Alamo, besieged by the demonstrators, in a conflict which resulted in almost 100 deaths.
Despite many earlier concessions by Governor Perry to peacefully resolve the issue, he has reportedly fled Texas and is presumed somewhere in US territory. A warrant has been issued for his arrest in the mass murder of 80 ethnic TexMexicans heavenly heroes.
China has immediately recognized the new provisional government, and has promised billions of Yuan in economic aid. It is widely rumored that the deal was in exchange for control of Texas gas pipelines and access to the port of Houston to house a Chinese Naval Base, and leasing Johnson Space Center for future Chinese space missions. The Chinese yuan has now been declared legal tender and the official currency of Texas.
President Obama has been warned not to “cross the line” in defending any American “imperialist” interests. American oligarch Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys football team has also fled the state. The team has been renamed the Dallas Vaqueros., and the stadium renamed Santa Ana Memorial Colisseum.
Speculation persists that pro-American nationalists may use military force to eventually divide the state along the Brazos River, based on ethnic demographics. On the other hand, the Chinese Foreign Ministry has stressed the need for maintaining the territorial integrity of Texas, based on the 1846 Treaty of Accession boundaries, (although that treaty was NEVER ratified by the Texas legislature at the time.)
In typical fashion, Western media has brutally castigated President Obama for considering the use of military force to recapture the State. Interrupting a recent golf vacation in Hawaii, Obama returned to Washington to order Military units of the Oklahoma National Guard Federalized, and they have taken up positions occupying the Panhandle, which is now reported under US control from Amarillo north, along the I-40 Interstate. Amarillo Airport is under martial law, and patrolled by US troops and SWAT teams
Protests throughout the world are condemning Obama as a brutal dictator conspiring once again “to crush the democratic aspirations of ethnic Latino people”.
The Organization of American States has issued a resolution of solidarity with the protestors, and pledged economic aid through the Rothschild Central banks in each country.
It is unknown at this time who will head the provisional government, but it is widely assumed the new President/Governor will be selected by the Chinese from the ranks of the Zeta Cartel party.
Several neutral commentators have noted the remarkable similarities between the situations in Texas and Ukraine.
Freedom of choice in Ukraine
REALLY? Choice is not the issue in Ukraine. Gas pipelines to Europe is the issue. Strategic surrounding of Russia is the issue. Drawing former allies of USSR into NATO is the issue.
Ukrainians making their own choices is NOT the issue.
Ukrainians have elected a government and a President, peaceably, fairly, without US /EU interference for 20 years, since the breakup of USSR. Now, when that government CHOOSES to re-evaluate EU affiliation and slow the process down, US & EU decide the people are being denied a choice, so the EU/and US will tell them what choice they SHOULD make, because the first choice… they don’t agree with.
Ukraine’s elected government CHOSE not to pursue EU integration at the original pace, due to economic factors, which such integration would exacerbate. They offered Ukraine ‘austerity’ preconditions and the likelihood of imploding the industrial economy of Eastern Ukraine, because it didn’t meet EU standards.
Apparently, there is only ONE choice that Ukrainians can make to be acceptable to the West. Otherwise, the West doesn’t really support choice at all.
JOHN KERRY’s “choice” –
“Nowhere is the FIGHT for a democratic, EUROPEAN future more important today than in Ukraine,” U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said. “The United States and EU stand with the PEOPLE of Ukraine in that FIGHT.”
It seems like he chooses differently than the ‘PEOPLE’ who ELECTED the government. He prefers to side with a mob in one Ukrainian city who want to overthrow the elected government.
He added that protesters believed their futures “do not have to lie with one country alone, and certainly not coerced”. One acceptable option is apparently for Ukraine to be divided, and only coerced by EU/US.
Ukraine has much more common political history with Russia than with the West, yet the media try to pretend this is ‘usurpation’ and interference by Russia. The “Kyiv Rus” were the ORIGINAL ethnic basis of the Russian peoples.
VALERY KLITSCHKO’s ‘CHOICE’- “We have to act now before it is too late,” he said. “We want to ensure the crisis in the Ukraine is solved because it can trigger a crisis in the whole region.” True, but conveniently forgetting his “action” CAUSED the crisis. His party did not prevail in the elections, so protest and overthrow is now the preferred “democratic” alternative. While the current government is economically inept and overbearing, Klitschko’s joining in common purpose on the streets with radical right wing and neo-fascist political parties, who aggravate the situation on the street with Molotov cocktails, is hardly an endorsement of his political acumen in solving anything.
NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen’s ‘CHOICE’ –
“We insist on full respect for the fundamental principle that each and every country has an inherent right to freely choose its alliances.” … Except if NATO disagrees? Ukraine DID choose. I guess he believes a group of protestors should make strategic policy, not the elected government.
European Council President Herman Van Rompuy’s ‘CHOICE’ –
“The future of Ukraine belongs with the European Union.”
….OH, I thought you said it was UKRAINE’S choice?
He added – “the EU’s offer of an association deal remained on the table.” REALLY? Then what is the hurry to overthrow Ukraine’s elected government?
The Ukraine crisis is manufactured by US/EU supported puppets to disrupt Russian gas pipeline deals to Europe, and to militarily threaten Russia’s southern flank. Overthrowing a president in mid term is NOT democratic. There are regular elections scheduled in 2015, but apparently not on a timetable acceptable to US/EU, who seem intent on dictating the “will of the people”.
If overthrowing an elected government in mid term is now defined as “democratic,” when there are regional protests against policies that some of the electorate disagree with, should this be used as a precedent for the United States government as well?
At 40% approval rating, Mr. Obama might want to reconsider that policy. Certainly, this would be interesting news for the “Occupy” and “Anonymous” movements.
