Washington piles lie upon lie: If Russia invaded, it would be over in few hours!

russia wants war
The latest Washington lie, this one coming from NATO, is that Russia has invaded Ukraine with 1,000 troops and self-propelled artillery.

How do we know that this is a lie? Is it because we have heard nothing but lies about Russia from NATO, from US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power, from assistant secretary of state Victoria Nuland, from Obama and his entire regime of pathological liars, and from the British, German, and French governments along with the BBC and the entirety of the Western media?

This, of course, is a good reason for knowing that the latest Western propaganda is a lie. Those who are pathological liars don't suddenly start telling the truth.

But there are even better reasons for understanding that Russia has not invaded Ukraine with 1,000 troops.

One reason is that Putin has invested heavily in diplomacy backed by unprovocative behavior. He would not risk his bet on diplomacy by sending in troops too few in number to have a decisive effect on the outcome.

Message to Ukraine's oligarchs: Ukraine must ensure gas transit to Europe

Russian-EU gas talks have progressed, but no solution was reached Friday over Russia and Ukraine's gas standoff. Moscow says their $100 gas discount to Kiev stands, and the EU doesn't want gas negotiations to be used to escalate the Ukraine crisis.

The gas situation is 'critical' Russia's Energy Minister Aleksandr Novak said after meeting with EU energy chief Gunther Oettinger in Moscow on Friday. The minister expressed concern about Ukraine's preparations for the winter months as gas supplies dwindle, and warned Kiev might siphon off Europe-bound deliveries.

Russia said they will resume gas deliveries to Ukraine if they pay $1.45 billion of their gas debt, Aleksey Miller, CEO of Gazprom, said. Naftogaz, Ukraine's national oil and gas company, has a total debt of $5.3 billion.

Comment: Check out the article "Tilting at pipelines: Geopolitical madness at the end of empire" for a wider perspective of this messy situation:
Behind the 2009 crisis, a similar one in 2006 and the one happening right now, we find what can only be described as squabbling Ukrainian oligarchs vying for control over the profits from Russian gas that transits through and is sold in Ukraine. In addition, there is the ubiquitous presence of the USA as it pursues its decades-long 'strategic interest' in attempting to weaken the Russian-EU energy partnership.

Countering the Wests' campaign of lies: Lavrov states no proof given for allegations about Russian troops in Ukraine

Russia's only reaction to NATO accusations of interfering militarily in Ukraine will be a consistent position of putting an end to bloodshed and establish dialogue between warring parties in Ukraine, Russia's FM said.

No facts about Russian military being present on the territory of Ukraine have ever been presented, Sergey Lavrov pointed out, while speculation on the issue has been voiced repeatedly, he stressed.

"It's not the first time we've heard wild guesses, though facts have never been presented so far," Lavrov said at a press conference in Moscow.

Comment: For months the press have been stating that "Russia invaded Ukraine" and again and again it is revealed that they are just the lying, sniveling accomplices of war criminals:

Next step regime change: Will St. Petersburg suffer the next Western sponsored Colour Revolution?


Comment: The following commentary by Steven MacMillan for NEO highlights the involvement of Western NGOs in the co-called 'color revolutions', i.e. covert coups d'etat. Putin made the right choice in expelling USAID from Russia, among other steps to hamstring the operation of foreign operatives intent on destabilizing Russia and bringing it under the control of Western financial and political interests.


st. petersburg
The announcement by Barack Obama on July 31st to appoint John F. Tefft as the new U.S. ambassador to Russia is a warning to the Russian government of the intentions of western foreign policy planners. Tefft, who has worked for the State Department and the National War College in Washington, is an expert at planning colour revolutions to overthrow regimes targeted by the western elite. He is the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine where he was a key architect in preparing the Washington orchestrated coup in Kiev.

Colour revolutions are based upon a fusion of the Rand Corporation's "swarming" technique invented in the 1960's and Professor Gene Sharp's guide to nonviolent struggle in the 1990's. Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) act as an extension of western intelligence agencies to create artificial revolutionary movements in countries that oppose Anglo-American hegemony through the use of social networks and text messaging, resulting in the overthrow of unfavorable regimes. They always appear as organic demonstrations by a people against a corrupt ruling class, which is reinforced and sometimes manufactured by the mainstream corporate media, but in reality they are organised by foreign NGOs - like in the case of the Centre for Applied Nonviolent Actions and Strategies (CANVAS), a U.S supported Serbian based "revolution consultancy" group, which was operating in Ukraine during 2013-14. The 2000 coup in Serbia, the 2003 Rose Revolution in Georgia and the 2004 Orange Revolution in Ukraine are some of the most notorious coups where this technique has been used.

The Ukraine situation and the mounting costs: When all else fails, blame the Russians

Facing the abyss, Ukraine is running out of options. As winter approaches - with a cratering economy - the regime in Kiev has hinted it may be looking to end the civil war. But that train may have already left the station.

CrossTalking with Joshua Tartakovsky, Dmitry Babich and Jim Dean.


Comment: As is mentioned in the show, when all the schemes of the West fails, whether it be regime change in Syria or in Ukraine, then blame the Russians. The ones that is going to pay for this mess in Ukraine is going to be the West, apart from the Ukrainians, who were led astray by their wishful thinking and of course the Western/Ukrainian media onslaught.

Rotherham UK: Den of paedophilia covered up by a corrupt system


Comment: It needs to be said: the UK has a culture of paedophilia in high places. And it's not the only country. While news of this latest scandal makes the headlines, the high-profile investigation into paedo MPs continues. As Tony Gosling writes for RT, the problem is systemic and inquiries are set up to fail. The child abusers run free. Make no mistake, these are the same sorts of people running western civilization into the ground, fomenting chaos in the Middle East, and demonizing Putin in order to make the way clear for criminal oligarchy and psychopathic license.

Roger Stone, leader of Rotherham council, who has stepped down from his position.
The putrid mess that oozes from the 160 pages of Alexis Jay's report into child sexual exploitation in Rotherham is so thick that one gags rather than read the words.

Children in the town were systematically identified by gangs as vulnerable, seduced with drugs and drink, brainwashed into believing they were in a relationship with an adult and then used for sex, often raped before sometimes being trafficked to nearby cities to work as prostitutes.

The brutal violence that surrounded this depraved process was shocking. Children who refused to acquiesce to ever more macabre demands were doused in petrol, threatened with guns, made to witness brutally violent rapes and told they would be next if they told anyone.

While some of this will be familiar to a British public which has been appalled by the revelations tumbling out of high-profile child abuse cases since 2010, Jay's report lays bare a mephitic hole in Yorkshire.

Over 16 years, she says, a "conservative estimate" is that 1,400 children were sexually exploited in the town. Girls as young as 11 were gang-raped by men.

This level of abuse appears to make Rotherham the nation's child sex exploitation capital. If the town's experience was replicated across the country, England would have 19,000 children criminally abused by gangs every year. The children's commissioner thinks that at the moment the figure is about 2,000.

Comment: A small sample of world-wide terrorism sponsored and financed by the American government and paid with the precious tax payer's money!


While the US government still claims it is fighting a "War on Terror", it is often forgotten that the US government has a friendly relationship with many terrorist groups around the world. This relationship is not merely historical, but current.

The US government often supports terrorists who are fighting against government which oppose the United States. Many terrorists, who commit all kinds of violent crimes against humanity, are being directly supported by the US government at this time.

Here are ten examples of US government supported terrorists from around the world.

A display of mercy: Putin calls on Ukraine militia to let out surrounded Kiev troops via a humanitarian corridor

President Putin has called on self-defense militias in Ukraine to provide Kiev's military units blocked in the east of the country with a safe humanitarian corridor to leave the combat area and "reunite with their families."

"It is clear the militia has achieved a major success in intercepting Kiev's military operation, which represents a grave danger to the population of Donbass and which has already led to the loss of many lives among peaceful residents," the Russian leader said in a statement.

As a result of militias' counter-offense, large numbers of Ukrainian troops - many of whom were taking part in Kiev's so-called anti-terrorist operation "against their will" and "just following orders" - have been surrounded, the President added.

"I call on the militia groups to open a humanitarian corridor for Ukrainian service members who have been surrounded, so as to avoid any needless loss of life, giving them the opportunity to leave the combat area unimpeded and reunite with their families, to return them to their mothers, wives and children, and to quickly provide medical assistance to those who were injured in the course of the military operation," Putin said.

Comment: Putin is doing what he can to stop the senseless killing that the US has goaded the Ukrainian regime into. Despite what the West is saying this is an internal conflict and Putin can only give advice to the militia, but has no authority over them. Putin's call is an encouragement to the militia to show mercy, something that is rare in today's world and something that the US and the West have not shown in their many war adventures over the last 50 years.

On Tuesday, August 26, Russia urged the UN Security Council to adopt a statement that would condemn the incident and demand guilty persons be brought to justice

The facts prove that Russia's Mi-8 helicopter crashed in South Sudan was shot down, Russia's Permanent Representative to the UN Vitaly Churkin said on Wednesday.

"All data says the helicopter was shot down," he said.

On Tuesday, August 26, Russia urged the UN Security Council to adopt a statement that would condemn the incident and demand guilty persons be brought to justice, Churkin said.

Earlier in the day, the Russian Foreign Ministry demanded an immediate investigation into the crash of Russia's Mi-8 cargo helicopter in South Sudan.

Comment: Churkin is right to ask for an investigation, given the current climate and the interesting coincidence that the U.S. has had a few troops in that area since 2013:

U.S. is the world's indispenable nation? Germany's Merkel seems less and less sure

© Saul Loeb/AFP/Getty Images
US President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel
First Russia and China, then UAE, Egypt, and Turkey... and now it appears Germany (following a phone call with Putin) is pulling the rug out from under US hegemony - just as Obama's warmongery ramps up...
  • MERKEL SAYS U.S. CAN'T SOLVE ALL THE WORLD'S PROBLEMS ANYMORE
Which is odd because just yesterday, President Obama (who never lies) stated "The United States is and will remain the one indispensable nation in the world..." adding that "no other nation can do what we do."Perhaps he is wrong?
"Even a superpower can't solve all of the problems alone anymore," German Chancellor Angela Merkel says.
Merkel did not stop there...
  • PUTIN, MERKEL URGE DE-ESCALATION IN UKRAINE, KREMLIN SAYS
  • PUTIN, MERKEL DISCUSSED GAS TRANSIT VIA UKRAINE, KREMLIN SAYS
  • PUTIN INFORMED MERKEL OF NEW EAST UKRAINE AID PLAN: KREMLIN
  • MERKEL URGES HOLLANDE TO CONTINUE REFORMS IN FRANCE
  • MERKEL SAYS HOLLANDE HAS CHANCE TO REVIVE FRENCH ECONOMIC POWER
Seems like she is returning to the offensive from the defensive...

Comment: It's about time Merkel admitted the fact that following the dictates of the U.S. will ultimately damage the European Union and its member states. But is it of any use? In other words, Germany is totally controlled by the U.S. So it's unlikely she'll actually be able to DO anything about it.
