preparation for military action or re-enforcements take time and money
tv always thinks that war begins at the 1 oclock news and is finished by the 7 o clock news
no, it is a process of weeks, months sometimes years
first all the diplomatic gameplays have to be gone through, than the sanctions, than the new last diplomatic games and meanwhile you continue your military planning, organisation and build up in case you need it
all options are still open here - if there are people who know this will end - they should play on the stock market and become very rich - if they aren't very rich because they know it is that they in fact don't know - like anybody else
when I read that - a wife who tweets that her husband has returned and that the first thing he has done is go to enlist himself in the new army - wooh - if you are a women imagine tweeting that your husband comes back home after so many years and is enlisted to fight the Russian army in Crimea or Ukraine one day (because that is what it is starting to look like)
who has any illusions that there is anything else but scanctions and renewed military defenses on the new seperation in Europe awaiting us
yeah minefields are placed by local defense units :)
well they surely keep their spirits up
don't seem beaten to me
stupid spooks tell stupid things when they can't think
a real sovietstyle election that is
“China is uneasy,” says Bonnie Glaser, an Asia specialist at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. “They cannot endorse Russia’s actions but they don’t want more tensions with Moscow, so they are not emphasizing their differences.”
It is easy to see why China is so insistent on the principle of non-interference: the government is worried about foreigners meddling in China’s own border provinces, such as Tibet and Xinjiang, where Beijing is unsure of local peoples’ loyalties.
Chinese leaders are especially displeased by the referendum that the Crimean parliament has called for March 16 to choose whether the autonomous region should break away from Ukraine and join Russia.
“That would be like Taiwan’s destiny being decided only by Taiwanese,” says Jin Canrong, a professor of international studies at Renmin University in Beijing. That would be anathema to Beijing, which insists that Taiwan – a self-governing island – is an integral part of China.
“China insists that Crimea’s fate should be decided by all Ukrainians,” explains Prof. Jin. “We will not support a Russian occupation of Crimea.
imagine, people in regions of China who may decide by Referenderum if they want to stay in China
Hong Kong bye bye Taiwan bye bye Tibet bye bye and so on ......
well this will proof that they will never have enough votes to show that the overall majority will vote for joining Russia and that opposition will always be massive - even if they use all the tricks in the world
look at who can vote - people living in Crimea since A WEEK
and the question of the referendum itself
at our Belgian TV our stupid reporters in The Crimea present it as the real parliament and the population is for it and that everything goes smoothly
not real journalists and not really critical - empty talking heads
they should better go home it will be less expensive, the same bullshit they can tell in the studio and than they can at least say that they couldn't have known because they weren't there
but they could have followed different sources on the internet - would even be more balanced
Leonid Pilunsky, a pro-Kiev Crimean MP, said the Cossacks surrounding the Crimean parliament had refused to allow him entry in recent days, despite the fact he has an MP's pass to get inside.
"What kind of parliament is it that does not allow access to its own MPs?" he asked. "I don't know why they are hurrying so much with it, but it's clear that this is a Kremlin scenario that the local leaders are enthusiastically playing a role in. They have scared people with so many stories about fascists in Kiev that people are now more scared of these fascists than they are of the corrupt leaders who have been stealing everyone for years."
exactly the same playbook
in Kiev the opposition MP's could enter and had long discussions and negotations with the other parties and made a new coalition of wills
but without the guns, initimidation and blocking of the opposition
MOSCOW, March 6 (RIA Novosti) – In an unexpected incident worthy of the Spanish inquisition, a couple in eastern Siberia decided their acquaintance was a witch and attempted to burn her alive, though police stopped the impromptu auto-da-fe.
The rescue came not a moment too soon, as the couple were at that moment forcing the alleged witch headfirst into a burning stove in an abandoned building, Zabaikalsky Region police said Thursday.
The 46-year-old victim was hospitalized with severe burns to her face and hands, police said in a statement.
The culprit was a 41-year-old local woman who was aided by a male acquaintance, the report said, without releasing their names.
the race against the clock
and you are losing
so don't make things too easy by overlooking this complicated
* he is throwing journalists out of the Crimea
* he is cutting outside tvstations out of the Crimea, only Russian propaganda
* his propagandists don't know what to do next as their propaganda is taken apart online as ..... propaganda
* he has already one city he thought he had and his 'local leader' has been arrested after a night of Ukranian protests
* every day 300 to 500 russians in buses with sticks and no clear plans or destinations are turned back at the border
* no Ukranian forces have given themselves over and are still sitting in their bases resisting attempts to run them over and he can't start shooting because he will be the first to shoot to kill
* the Crimaen parliament that he has put himself together has decided they don't want to wait the referendum and will join Russia immediately and they will also use the Ruble (bubble)
* more military forces are arriving in the region or are being mobilized quitely
* the sanctions are not that harch but it gives the Russian billionaires the possiblitiy to transfer their funds to Europe and in Eurio or dollars which will weaken the Ruble
* nobody believes him and he starts acting silly next to those Ukranians who are so calm and strategic
* Ukranians want EU, NATO and nuclear bombs in future and will never trust us again
* there are no major revolutions or pograms against Russians in the Eastern or even the Western part of Ukraine and even his normal partners aren't really so popular and are becoming more nationalistic by the day
* the referendum in The Crimea is so ridiculous that there is no way anybody would accept this anyway
He looks like Saddam Hussain after he invaded Kuwait and didn't know how to save himself from an US attack without losing his face
the longer this will endure the more he will lose his face and his credibility and the greater the possbility that he will demonstrations and revolts inside his 'empire'
look, he has no clothes, the Kaiser
from global research a think thank sponsered by Russia now spewing permanently the Ukranian neonazi story over the web hoping enough papers like Demorgen.be will believe it because they are empty copycats jumping to any conclusion that fits their worldview (don't tell them it is already dead since the Berlin Wall felt)
you see the situation is becoming very desperate for them when their propagandists see that nothing works anymore and they don't know what to do next
based upon details in the pictures the different regiments and the weapons of these soldiers have been identified even if nobody told Putin that in fact they came from Russia - or he just spoke because he acts still as if he is still a KGB operative (do the nasty stuff but don't tell me what or where or when, I don't want to know)
this is one example
comment with the social web it is much more difficult to hide
especially as these same soldiers are placing pics on their own social web......in russia.... tellling what they are doing
