Interesting, watching the 4th estate change it’s spots from Dove to Hawk to suit it’s own self preservation agenda. In it’s frantic bid for protection against freedom of information threats presented by the Internet Reformation.
And it’s also fascinating one can now turn to sources like RT and Al Jazeera to temper the din of the domestic MSM.
This operation wasn’t about Putin “defending” ethnic Russians. It was about his defending his “ethnic” Russian military bases in the Crimea.
Aside from the fact the pipelines are useless if there is nothing to put into them, having 16,000 troops just down the street tilts the outcome of a Mexican Standoff a bit in Vlads favor.
Something tells me this old KGB Apparatchik is not some sort of humanitarian.
Anyway, it’s over now, as rapidly as it began. There were some efficient military strategists behind the execution of it. It was over before Kerry and entourage could get multiple agency bureaucratic approval and make extensive, expensive travel arrangements.
And American taxpayers are again on the hook.
Sans Europe, this could be a wealthy nation again. Maybe Ron Paul had it right? Bring ’em all home and let the worlds squabbling little Nation States fend for themselves, militarily and financially.
Time for the end of empire.

Zero Hedge reveals a shocking recording between:
“…..EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton and Estonian foreign minister Urmas Paet, in which it is revealed on tape that all those photos of horrifying deaths of Ukrainians by snipers during the last days of the Median stand off, were in fact caused not by Snipers controlled by Yanukovich, but that the snipers shot at both protesters and police in Kiev were allegedly hired by Maidan leaders!”
At about 8:20 of the video recording of conversation:
“Paet: “All the evidence shows that people who were killed by snipers from both sides, policemen and people from the streets, that they were the same snipers killing people from both sides. … Some photos that showed it is the same handwriting, the same type of bullets, and it is really disturbing that now the new coalition they don’t want to investigate what exactly happened. So there is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovych, but it was somebody from the new coalition.”
Ashton: “I think we do want to investigate. I mean, I didn’t pick that up, that’s interesting. Gosh.”
Paet: “It already discreditates (sic) this new coalition.”
Fire on your own people in order to gain power. Who would have ever suspected that? (sarc)
