Is there anything in common between the current events in Venezuela and Ukraine?
In both cases, the minority is speaking on behalf of the majority. Why do they succeed? Because they are generously financed from abroad. Extremists in both Venezuela and Ukraine live off the same sources. The only difference between the two countries is how deep they have plunged into chaos. In Ukraine, it is safe to speak about a coup d’etat, while in Venezuela, the protesters are only just trying to destabilize the situation.
Could you specify who exactly is behind the riots in Ukraine and Venezuela?
It’s the European Union and the United States. Their emissaries have literally settled in Ukraine. It’s the same old thing: loud statements about alleged human rights abuses and alleged attacks on the opposition, threats of economic sanctions, and not a word about the Molotov cocktails the "oppressed crowds" threw at law enforcers.
What interests do the US and the EU pursue in Ukraine?
Their key goal is to get closer to the Russian border. Without doubt, NATO has plans to deploy missile defense weapons in Ukraine. And look at Ukraine’s agricultural potential. It’s a country capable of feeding the whole of Europe. And there’s one more thing: the Black Sea may prove to be rich in oil and gas.
IT'S A DAMNED SHAME THAT THE EUROPEAN UNION AND THE UNITED STATES CAN'T STAY OUT OF OTHER NATION'S BUSINESS AND CONCENTRATE ON THEIR OWN NATION'S PROBLEMS!
While I don't doubt it, I'll wait for more proof than from Orlando Labrador, an unknown to me. My first question is where is he from? Venezuela? Is he a Chavezbot??
AMEN! This is the same message that Dr. Ron Paul has stated for many years - "Stay out of everybodys' business and work on healing America"!
Dr. Ron Paul is absolutely right! America can be an influence in this worlds' politics best by using a humanities approach, and step in ONLY when there is no other way to resolve conflicts. We are NOT the world's police force!
I saw the US/Obama in that coup just like the other countries he invaded with our citizens. This was really a try to upset Putin and the Olympics. Didn't happen. The Olympics were great from start to finish. Boo Ovomit!
Here is Ron Paul on applying our traditional American non-interventionist foreign policy to the Ukraine:
If socialist stimulus worked, all those trillions of "defense" fiat dollars ("printed" and borrowed from China) blown on the Bush/Obama Neocon World Police policies would have led us to prosperity...
This comes from the voice of Russia. I would be very skeptical of anything they say.
America’s “Long War” against Humanity!
“Food For Thought”
Hello: When Are Americans Going To Wake Up-God Bless America!
Russia has the biggest stake in controlling Ukraine. So you cite a Venezuelan on Radio RUSSIA about how it's extremists financed by the US that are causing trouble? When did the Tea Party become a Russian propaganda organ? This is nuts. Dictators in Venezuela and Ukraine are the good guys? You should be ashamed.
I think where people should be looking for the bad guy's with one of the groups George Soros belongs to I think it is called Builderburgs or something like that.
I guess we'll find a pressing national interest that requires sacrficing troops---what crap
RUSSIA PROPAGANDA OPERATIONS TARGET THE U.S.
By: Cliff Kincaid
Accuracy in Media
The Moscow-funded propaganda channel, Russia Today (RT), is featuring a Ron Paul column titled “Leave Ukraine alone!,” even while Russia threatens an invasion of the sovereign nation and former Soviet republic. “The usual interventionists in the US have long meddled in the internal affairs of Ukraine,” Paul says, promoting the Kremlin line to an American audience.
Using an American to reinforce a policy favored by Moscow is a technique from old Soviet propaganda operations.
This isn’t the first time the pro-Putin network, which is available in English in the U.S. on the Comcast and Time Warner Cable systems, has highlighted the former Congressman’s “libertarian,” or “non-interventionist,” views benefiting Russia. It also recently featured his petition calling for clemency for Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency contract employee who stole classified documents and leaked them to America’s enemies. Snowden is under the control in Russia of the FSB, the Russian intelligence agency....
For his part, in regard to Ukraine, Soros has declared, “I established the Renaissance Foundation in Ukraine in 1990—before the country achieved independence. The foundation did not participate in the recent uprising, but it did serve as a defender of those targeted by official repression. The foundation is now ready to support Ukrainians’ strongly felt desire to establish resilient democratic institutions (above all, an independent and professional judiciary). But Ukraine will need outside assistance that only the EU can provide: management expertise and access to markets.”
The anti-communist sentiments of most of the protesters run counter to the Soros agenda and the “progressive” and even Marxist groups he funds in the U.S. and various parts of the world. While an agreement of some kind with the EU is perhaps inevitable, and definitely preferable to subservience to Russia, it is likely the case that many in Ukraine will want to avoid economic entanglement with the European socialist bureaucracy. Indeed, Ukraine can and should develop independently.
In Ukraine, the new government is so anti-communist that it is threatening to outlaw the Communist Party. The communists had supported Viktor Yanukovych because of his determination to “strengthen international ties with Russia and countries of the Shanghai Co-operation Organization,” notes the U.S. Communist Party newspaper, People’s World. The Shanghai Cooperation Organization includes Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.
Echoing Moscow, the Communist Party of Ukraine is now claiming the new government is run by Nazis and fascists.
In his commentary, Soros urges German Chancellor Angela Merkel to “reach out to President Vladimir Putin to ensure that Russia is a partner, not an opponent, in the Ukrainian renaissance,” a curious suggestion considering Putin’s threats to the country and his announced desire to reconstitute the Soviet empire and put Ukraine under Kremlin control. This comment demonstrates that, in the end, Soros wants to accommodate, not confront, Putin. That would be suicide for Ukraine.
SUSTAINING UKRAINE'S BREAKTHROUGH - BY GEORGE SOROS
...True to form, the EU under German leadership offered far too little and demanded far too much from Ukraine. Now, after the Ukrainian people’s commitment to closer ties with Europe fueled a successful popular insurrection, the EU, along with the International Monetary Fund, is putting together a multibillion-dollar rescue package to save the country from financial collapse. But that will not be sufficient to sustain the national unity that Ukraine will need in the coming years.

The foundation did not participate in the recent uprising, but it did serve as a defender of those targeted by official repression.

In addition to encouraging foreign direct investment, the EU could provide support to train local companies’ managers and help them develop their business strategies, with service providers remunerated by equity stakes or profit-sharing. An effective way to roll out such support to a large number of companies would be to combine it with credit lines provided by commercial banks. To encourage participation, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) could invest in companies alongside foreign and local investors, as it did in Central Europe....
Ukraine depends on Russian gas, and it needs access to European markets for its products; it must have good relations with both sides.
Here, too, Germany should take the lead. Chancellor Angela Merkel must reach out to President Vladimir Putin to ensure that Russia is a partner, not an opponent, in the Ukrainian renaissance.
The media is a form of propaganda that simply sweetens the lie's of all nations. All men are liars and, none know the facts. Each will expound upon their own versions of the lie. I have read the final chapter and God wins. The severance of tie's between yesterday's lie's, today's truce and, tomorrow's war is simply the lie's men use so they can bribe the next innocent and, expound the hatred that needs another lie. That lie will give them an excuse to terminate more of the men that lie different from them. It is called an anti-ministry. If my position does not bolster yours you accuse me of being the liar. Each man/woman begin their conversation with a truce message then they rip into each other. That is only as valid as long as the fight continues. Then they go back to the truce version of the lie. Jericho and Sodom were destroyed. The people rebuilt it and, it gets destroyed again. The few versions of the lie that Americans use will never lessen anything to the global hate that feeds the rolls of poverty. These are simply lie's of another breed. Unless in earnest. Prayer will only postpone it for a while. Bribe's get paid and then the lie's begin again. A feast like a 1,000 dollar a plate luncheon is held and the bribe's for the next generation of liar is consummated. That reveals as King Solomon revealed everything under the sun is folly the whole world is folly. That leads to comedy shows. They gain an audience of liars needing folly. That folly turns into laughter for a brief moment until they think the joke is about them. This leads to battle again. The anti-ministry restarts and, the battle begins. Like pro-sports the basher's love a good live event that feeds their ego to prepare for the next Game or battle as some men proclaim. It is a never ending game of annihilation.
