[Update Apr-8] Now the Russians are copying the same recipe of what caused the violent riot in Kiev and doing it first in Crimea and second in multiple cities of East Ukraine. Back-firing, or karma? Now the new “rebels” are pro-Russians.
“What we see from Russia is an illegal and illegitimate effort to destabilize a sovereign state and create a contrived crisis with paid operatives across an international boundary,” Kerry told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in Washington.
[original] The demonstration in Kiev got more violent, and situation is deteriorating rapidly. There are reports saying that the demonstrators are being armed (by whom? the western report would not comment, but the usual suspects come to mind, the SAS, the CIAs). Let’s draw some parallels between Syria and Ukraine: both conflicts were started peacefully, and then escalated in violence, and later on armed conflict. Demonstrators would not have access to weapons (even in the USA the arm dealer of all and citizens with the badge of “Second Amendment”), but now they are getting more and more.
And now, the escalation is following the same footprints as the conflicts in Syria, with the foreign armed groups infiltrating to Kiev and ultimately Ukraine.
The same forces that instigated unruly demonstrations in 2011 in Syria are now instigating such demonstrations in the Ukraine. That at least is what I am reading out of the fact that the exactly same graphics are used to train the willing-to-fight demonstrators. How else to explain the above graphics, once with Arabic and once with in Cyrillic letters?
Accompanying the demonstrations and illegal occupations of government buildings are in both cases brutal, criminal attacks on the police and other government forces. In Syria the violence “muscle” part was done by foreign financed Jihadists while neo-nazi gangs are used in the Ukraine. The demonstrations and the attacks on the state are planned and go together. There is nothing “peaceful” in demonstrations that are only the public-relations cover for attacks on the state. But the foreign politicians and media immediately utter “concerns” and threats over completely normal government responses to them. It is a scam to justify “western” “support” for the demonstrators and to further the violence.
The aim is “regime change” of legitimate governments by small minorities. Should the “regime” resist to that the alternative of destroying the state and the whole society is also wholeheartedly accepted.
Several German media used of the “regime” slander for the dully elected Ukrainian government today and did some concern trolling about “peaceful demonstrators” while policemen in Kiev were doused with Molotov cocktails. It is very obvious what is going on here and the media are playing along with the politicians, militaries and secret services that are behind these “revolutions”.
Color revolutions in the old form had become too obvious a scheme to be of further use. The concept was therefore extended to include intensive use of force and mercenaries and to support those forces from the outside with weapons, ammunition, training and other means. After Libya, where Gaddhafi forces are still fighting back, Syria was destroyed and now the Ukraine is the target. There are likely lists of other countries that shall be attacked by such means. What is really behind the Gezi-park demonstrations in Turkey and the protests in Bangkok? Are foreign powers behind these too or are they just copycat actions by local groups? How does Egypt fit in?
And what is the best defense a legitimate government can build against and how should it react to such attacks?
The Western media are tired to find some evidences to proof that the police brutalities in Ukraine, but they are failing. Only they found the pictures and video clip of violent actions of the extremists. They do not like tell the true story of the powerless members of the law enforcement agencies who are waiting for raining of stone, baseball bat, fire bomb with their last breath.
The Western media are experts on manipulating videos and pictures to misinform the people but this time they are so helpless to find the pictures and videos.
The same US/EU tactic in Ukraina as in Libya and Syria. Promise the insurgents that the worlds greatest political, economic and military powers are behind them, and they will never stop – regardless if they are in majority or minority. US/EU prefers to win with violence – otherwise they would have told Ukraina “Everybody go home, elections in 90 days. We will supervise the elections so that everybody can trust the result. We will enforce the result with our power if necessary.” Had EU/US said that in december, Ukraina would now be in election campaign instead of killing campaign. But no. The EU/US are no democrats.
We need to be extra vigilant when we see stubborn demonstrator who refuse to compromise, and those who want to rally more support to affect public order. “Occupy Central” movement in Hong Kong comes to mind.
