I recently received the following email under the title – Media Request – comment for upcoming article

Russell, hello,

I’m a journalist for BuzzFeed News. I reported extensively in the Donbass during the war, although I’m not sure our paths crossed. But I believe we know each other. I’m writing to ask if you’d like to comment on a piece of information I’ll be including in an upcoming story. The story is not focused on you. However, in the course of my reporting I learned that you are one of the 250 people the Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s Office is investigating for alleged terrorism-related offenses for fighting on the Russia-backed side of the war. Because I’ll be mentioning this in the article, I wanted to contact you to give you a chance to respond. Please let me know today if you’d like to comment on this matter. In describing you in the article, I’ll also mention your past drug conviction, as well as your time fighting in Donetsk.

Thank you,
Chris Miller

There’s no need to include here my insolent, insulting and profanity-laced reply, (perhaps Miller will be so kind as to publish it elsewhere, though he failed to do so, or even mention me at all in his article) but suffice to say, I compared the Ukraine Prosecutor General’s Office to a cesspool, and specifically called Miller a “presstitute”. That neo-nazi terrorists in the Prosecutor General’s Office are investigating me for “terrorism” because I have defended the citizens and civilians of Donbass from Kiev’s own genocide and ethnic cleansing programs is the the apex of hypocrisy and cynicism, a real life example of the comic book “Bizarro World” where everything is the exact opposite of what it is supposed to be. Equally as “bizarro” and hypocritical is Miller’s calling himself a “journalist”. He is a US government paid professional propagandist and disinformation specialist , an enemy of the truth and an inveterate liar. As for my “past drug conviction”, well, there is some truth to that, and I’ll address it, since Miller didn’t, but let’s take each in their turn. First, the Ukrainian Prosecutor General, and the abject ukrop quisling government as a whole. [1]

A quick Google search for “Ukraine corruption” brings up almost 46 million results. It has been ranked the ninth most corrupt country in the world, the most corrupt in Europe, and Ukraine’s corruption rank by country has averaged 117th over the past 22 years, which is, in fact, exactly where it is today, according to tradingeconomics.com, an international business and investment news service with no political ax to grind. So, despite occasional fluctuations and purely cosmetic rhetoric, for more than two decades, including the past eight years under direct and complete US/NATO/IMF suzerainty, the word “Ukraine”, as well as the nation itself, remains synonymous with “corruption”. Same as it ever was. And how could it be otherwise? [2], [3]

Since the Maidan “Revolution of Dignity” instigated by the political treachery of the EU reneging on a last minute treaty with then President Yanukovich, and cemented with the mass murder of over 100 police and protesters by “unknown assailants”, (crimes which remain unsolved by the brilliant sleuths of the General Prosecutors Office, in spite of compelling forensic, video, and eyewitness evidence, and even outright confessions by some of the snipers themselves) Ukraine has been run by a collection of neo-nazis and mafia billionaires, under the command of Gauleiter Joe Biden. [4], [5], [6], [7]

Biden assumed control of Ukraine, soon after the Maidan coup, with his State Department flunkies Geoffery Pyatt and Victoria “Nuland” Nudelman hand-picking the next president , Prime Minister and their entire administrations, right down to appointing Vitali Klitchko as Mayor of Kiev (which he still is to this day). This parade of kleptocrats and clowns included Petro Poroshenko, an alcoholic billionaire and ruthless gangster as the new President of Ukraine, and Mikael Sakashvili, the fugitive ex-President of Georgia, who was appointed Governor of the Odessa region, in spite of being wanted at the time in his former country for corruption charges involving assault and murder in Georgia (charges for which he was subsequently convicted and sentenced to six years in prison, a sentence which he is currently serving in Georgia.) This motley crew is hardly the type to inspire trust and confidence that justice will be served, and distrust for the justice system in Ukraine is widespread. In fact, Ukraine ranked 101 out of 109 countries in the 2017 Index of Public Integrity. Opinion polls taken in 2016, two years after the new puppet regime was installed, recorded that only 3 to 5 percent of the population had any trust in the country’s justice system. And small wonder… Is this a face you would trust? [8], [9], [10], [11]

Ukrainian Prosecutor General Irina Venediktova She has ways of making you talk…

As for the Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s Office in particular, headed by the hatchet-faced Inquisitor Irina Venediktova, which is according to Miller, busy “investigating” 250 members of the Donbass Defense Forces (including myself) it has so far failed to identify, investigate, indict, prosecute or convict anyone in the Kiev sniper mass murders, the Odessa Trade Union mass murders, the MH-17 false flag mass murders, the theft of at least $4 billion of US and IMF aid, or the Burisma Oil scandal involving Hunter Biden, nor for the war crimes committed by at least seven US neo-nazis who served in Ukrainian military units that are currently being investigated by the FBI.

Those war crimes, committed by pro-Kiev US neo-nazis, involving multiple cases of kidnapping, rape, torture and murder of Ukrainian civilians, have been investigated since at least 2018, not by Ukrainian authorities, but by the US FBI. In fact, the main suspect in the case, Craig Lang, who is also wanted for a a double murder of an elderly couple in Florida, USA in April, 2018, has so far been protected from justice and harbored in Kiev by the Ukrainian government itself, including specifically the Prosecutor General’s Office. It is a fact that the SBU, the Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Ukrainian military are themselves all well known for kidnapping, torture and murder, so it is not far fetched to consider the possibility that Prosecutor Venediktova (who is also a sitting member of the National Security and Defense Council, which controls all the above organizations) is dragging her feet on bringing Lang and other war criminals to justice because she doesn’t consider kidnapping, torture and murder to be “crimes”, when applied by her colleagues and minions to the kind of people she thinks “deserve” it. And I guarantee, in her opinion, and Lang’s, I’d be exactly that kind of person.

A photo that neo-nazi Craig Lang once sent to me personally, on Facebook.

In their eyes, and apparently in Chris Miller’s, I and all who have defended the Russian people of Donbass from genocide and ethnic cleansing operations are “terrorists”. I did serve for about a year total in the DPR military and police, but I never went on a single offensive combat operation. I was, once, on a recon mission behind enemy lines, but we did not make contact, and no shots were fired. Every single shot I have ever fired in this war has been in self-defense, in a defensive position, shooting at soldiers, mercenaries and neo-nazi volunteers like Lang, who were attacking our position and shooting directly at me and my comrades. The German nazis called Russian Partizans and European Resistance fighters “terrorists” too, and these torturers, killers and war criminals of the current Kiev regime are no different or better than their nazi forebearers. It is an honor for me that these blood-thirsty beasts know I am their enemy and are terrified of it. As well they should be. Ukraine will soon be liberated, and then it will be scum like Venediktova who will be prosecuted and punished for their crimes, and I hope I live long enough to see it. I don’t want to see them tortured or killed, I just want justice done. I want to see them brought to Donbass in work battalions to repair and rebuild every single thing broken or destroyed by their attacks on the peaceful people of Donbass, ordered by the likes Venediktova, and carried out by mad dogs like Lang. There are two kinds of people in this world, those who build, and those who destroy. By bringing those who destroyed Donbass here to rebuild it, perhaps we can rehabilitate them. One thing is certain – by the time they finish re-building every single thing they have destroyed here, they will be very different people than the vermin they are today.

CHRIS MILLER – PSEUDO-JOURNALIST, PROFESSIONAL PROPAGANDIST AND NEO-NAZI FANBOY

Chris Miller introduced himself to me with a lie. “I’m a journalist for Buzzfeed News.” This is exactly the kind of lie he and his ilk of highly trained disinfo specialists are expert at – using what appears to be the truth to tell a lie. Yes, Miller’s articles do appear on the Buzzfeed News page, and he probably does get a check from them every month, but if you know his backstory, like I do, you know that his fealty is to whatever the owners of the US government tell him it is.

Chris Miller, jive-ass hipster bullshit artist, posing as a “journalist”.

Buzzfeed passes itself off to young, ignorant and impressionable naifs as a cool, progressive, alternative media “news” source, while being in fact a gossip rag and soap opera digest which is the draw and the cover for the occasional political disinfo story that is their real raison d’etre. Buzzfeed is a product of the Democratic Party Deep State, having been the first and main publisher of the “Steele Dossier”, a bogus hitpiece against Trump, later debunked by myriad sources, including most of the US mainstream media itself. With their penchance for plaigarism, fake news and stupid stunts, it is small wonder that in a 2017 survey among US readers by The Guardian (UK), BuzzFeed was voted the second least trustworthy source among American readers, with only “Occupy Democrats” being lower-ranked. “Yes,” you might say, “but Buzzfeed won the Pulitzer Prize for international reporting in 2021.” Indeed, which is every bit as appropriate as war criminals Henry Kissinger and Barrack Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize. In other words, a tragic joke and a disgrace, and the apex of hypocrisy. [12]

Buzzfeed is also a pioneer of “advertorial” advertising, an insidious mixing of advertising and “information/news” content that is almost subliminal, and is primarily of interest to major corporations as opposed to smaller or local businesses. The potential for the political abuse of such type of “advertising” is obvious. Which brings us to Miller’s previous, most interesting and most important employer – the CIA. Well, Radio Free Europe, (RFE) which was founded by the National Committee for a Free Europe, an anti-communist CIA front organization that was formed by Allen Dulles in 1949. Dulles later became the first civilian Director of the CIA, The Committee directed operations of RFE, and from 1951 to 1971, RFE was directly financed by the CIA, as an “anti-Communist propaganda” organization. There is an old saying in the CIA – “Once CIA, always CIA”. RFE was and is CIA, and Miller spent 10 years working for them in Eastern Europe. He is an expert propagandist and disinfo warrior, a professional bullshit artist, and his “new” job at Buzzfeed only continues that work. And the article Miller mentioned in his email to me is a perfect example of exactly how it works. [13], [14], [15], [16], [17]

A LIMITED HANGOUT

A limited hangout is a well known and often used disinfo technique where a limited amount of negative info about one’s own side is published in order to create a facade of openness and honesty, when in fact, it is a damage control and misdirection technique. As CIA agent and later whistleblower Victor Marchetti explained, a limited hangout is “a favorite and frequently used gimmick of the clandestine professionals. When their veil of secrecy is shredded and they can no longer rely on a phony cover story to misinform the public, they resort to admitting—sometimes even volunteering—some of the truth while still managing to withhold the key and most damaging facts in the case. The public, however, is usually so intrigued by the new information that it never thinks to pursue the matter further.” [18], [19]

It turns out that the article Miller was writing was about the seven US citizens who had fought on the Ukrainian side of the Donbass War who were being investigated by the FBI for war crimes, one of whom, Craig Lang, is also wanted for a double murder in the USA. The fact that the FBI was in Ukraine investigating war crimes, and the fact that the basis for these investigations includes compelling and irrefutable physical, video and eyewitness evidence of horrific crimes, including kidnapping, rape, torture and multiple murders, and would have become public sooner or later, forced Western propagandists like Miller and Buzzfeed into conducting a limited hangout disinfo operation of the “We got the few bad apples, justice is served, nothing more to see, move on” variety. And in fact in the final published version of Miller’s article, there was no mention of me or of my “previous drug conviction”. Here’s why  [20], [21]

“Drug Dealer” Bentley, back in the day…

In 1996, I was arrested, along with seven other co-defendants, for being a part of a marijuana smuggling operation that moved hundreds of kilos of cannabis from Mexico to multiple destinations in the USA and Canada between 1991 and 1996. In 1996, I plead guilty to the fact that in 1992, I had indeed been in possession of 500 kilos of cannabis, and was sentenced to 63 months in prison for it. Unlike all my other co-defendants, I was the only one of the group who refused to “cooperate” with the cops or agree to testify. The others, equally or more guilty than I was, cooperated, and got reduced sentences of 18 months or a year and a day. Even the “kingpin” leader of the operation, who made multi-millions of dollars, only got three years compared to more than five years for me. So at least half of my sentence was for refusing to cooperate, not for cannabis possession. I did my five years in prison, plus four more years of “supervised release”, and my debt to society is paid in full, for a crime I committed 30 years ago.

It should also be noted, as it was in the official investigation, that our smuggling crew had two ironclad rules – no violence for any reason, and no hard drugs bought, sold or used. We only moved cannabis. My primary job was driving 100 pound loads from Mexico to Minnesota, wholesaling to distributors, and bringing the money back to the kingpin in South Texas. I was very good at my job. I made $25,000 per trip, which is pretty good pay for a couple of weeks’ work. But if I had instead moved 100 pounds of hard drugs like cocaine, heroin or meth, I could have made about a quarter million dollars per trip instead of $25,000. And, in fact, I had the opportunity and many offers to do so, and easily could have done so, had I wanted to. But I always refused. For moral reasons.

Cannabis is now legal in thirty three US states, and soon will be, nationwide, as it is in ten other countries, including Canada, Belgium and Holland. In fact, during the time I was smuggling weed, I was also a major player in the Marijuana Legalization Movement on the national and international levels, and I am one of the people who actually helped change the laws. But yes, it was illegal when I was a smuggler, and I did break the law, and I paid a hefty price for it too. But while I was admittedly an outlaw, I was never a criminal. I never hurt anybody. In fact, I am not the least bit ashamed or sorry for it, and make no apologies to anyone at all for it. The law I broke was stupid and unjust, and the fact that it is now changed only proves that there was no real crime, and I was simply punished for being a bit too far ahead of my time.

And here’s the point of all this, not one single ukrop propagandist, who brings up the subject of my conviction, including Miller, has ever called me a “marijuana smuggler” or said I was convicted of “marijuana possession”. It is always, every single fucking time, “drug dealer”. Which is semi-technically true, but still a lie. Because alcohol and tobacco are also, technically, and in reality, “drugs”. And in fact, both alcohol and tobacco are far more damaging to the individual, and to society in general than cannabis, and anyone who disputes that fact is either an idiot or a liar, or both. So, by this criterion, every corporation and every corner store that sells alcohol or tobacco is also a “drug dealer”, and dealing much more dangerous drugs than I ever did.

In the USA, alcohol directly kills 95,000 people every year, from overdose and illness. Add to that over 10,000 deaths and 290,000 serious injuries from DWI, not to mention addiction, domestic abuse, etc, and you begin to get an idea of the dangers of alcohol as a “drug”. But the damage caused by alcohol to individuals and society is eclipsed by the destruction that tobacco wreaks – 480,000 annual deaths directly related to tobacco use, ten years less average life expectancy, and an annual cost to society for medical care directly related to tobacco use in the USA of more than $300 Billion per year. In Russia, according to official studies, more than a million Russians die from alcohol and drugs every year, more than 500,000 directly from alcohol, and 300,000 from tobacco use. But for cannabis use, the statistics are clear, world-wide, and absolutely beyond dispute – not one single person, anywhere, has ever died from cannabis overdose or medical complications directly related to cannabis use. Not one, ever. To quote the US DEA report, “No deaths from marijuana overdose have (ever) been reported.” This fact is so well known and widely accepted by all medical surveys and government statistics that anyone who disputes it is an idiot and a liar, and an asshole. Period. [22], [23], [24], [25]

So, there IS a distinction between “drugs”, and anyone who calls me a “drug dealer” without mentioning the specific drug, is a liar and a hypocrite, unless they usually call convenience store clerks who sell cigarettes and bartenders who sell beer “drug dealers” too. And the ukrop trolls and presstitutes like Miller who call me a “drug dealer” instead of a weed smuggler, do so on purpose, with perjorative intent, trying to equate my breaking an unjust and stupid and now repealed law almost 30 years ago with contemporary mass murderers, rapists, torturers and war criminals. Don’t fall for their bullshit. Respect for the truth is the basis of all morality, and these liars are absolutely bereft of it.

By Russell Bentley

RUSSIA’S RESPONSE – PEACEKEEPER OR LIBERATOR? “R2P” OR “HUMANITARIAN INTERVENTION”?

Recent developments on both sides of the Donbass War illustrate the obvious – the war in Donbass will continue and escalate until Russia finishes it by force. There is no diplomatic solution, the Russians now (finally) accept this fact, and they must now prepare to defend the Donbass region which is inhabited by almost a million Russian citizens, and to liberate the part of Ukraine populated primarily by ethnic and Russian-speaking Russians. The US/EU/NATO and Ukraine have all been pretending since 2014 that ” Russia invaded Ukraine”. Of course, it never did. But now, it’s finally time to give them all a taste of what that will really be like. And so,…

The provocations by the Ukrainian military for almost 8 years now, but especially in recent weeks, amount to de facto war crimes – the kidnapping and torture of a Russian ceasefire monitor in Lugansk, an attack on, and “filtration” of, Staromaryevka, a settlement of 180 civilians in the de-militarized “Grey Zone”, which included the kidnapping of 8 more unarmed civilians (who were also Russian citizens) by neo-nazi terrorists, and the use of a Turkish Bayrakter attack drone against Donbass defense forces. All this in addition to the usual shelling of civilian areas and infrastructure, which are also war crimes, along with a hardening of war rhetoric by the Kiev regime. This has all been instigated and spurred on by the Biden regime, by the continuing supply of lethal weapons and a recent visit to Kiev by the US Secretary of War, Lloyd “Uncle Tomahawk” Austin.

A Slave & His Master

Russia now understands and has publicly stated that there is no further use in direct talks with the Kiev regime, as it is under the complete control of Washington, and all decisions are made there. These public statements therefore correctly put the blame for the entire war and its every atrocity right where it belongs, at the feet of three successive US regimes. Thus proving what I have said since 2015 – that this war is not a Ukrainian civil war, nor is it a war between Russians and Ukrainians. It is a war by resurgent international neo-nazism, led by the USA against all decent human beings, a genuine war between good and evil that can only end with the complete defeat of one side or the other. The ignition points of this war have been Donbass and Syria for many years now, and have now expanded to include Taiwan as well.

Taiwan is the most recent, and so far, the least “kinetic” of these flash points, and US and Western provocations there have not (yet) reached the intensity they have in Donbass or Syria, but that can change very quickly, and understand, there is a direct connection between them all. If the West forces a military confrontation with Russia in Ukraine, it can be sure it will face one with China over Taiwan simultaneously, neither of which it has any chance of winning. The Russians and Chinese have forged a partnership against Western (primarily US) aggression in the political, economic and military spheres, which is, in fact, invincible to any Western aggression, other than all-out nuclear war.

In Syria, the Turks (a NATO member) have in recent days directly threatened Russian military installations and troops, and should they actually carry out attacks on Russians in Syria, Russia has made clear it will fire back. Turkish troops are now also on the ground in Ukraine, involved in combat operations against Donbass Defense Forces. This too, is a major and recent escalation. [1]

But it is in Donbass that the situation is the most incendiary. In response to recent Ukrainian provocations, war crimes and acts of terrorism, Russia is again sending a military task force to its border with Ukraine, as it did in the spring of this year, which stopped the planned US/Ukrainian offensive in its tracks. After the offensive was scrubbed and the situation de-escalated, the Russian troops withdrew from the border, but now are again forced to return. This time, indications are that the Russian formations are preparing to, at minimum, come into Donbass as Peacekeepers, and perhaps go as far as Kharkov and Odessa as Liberators. Maybe even to Kiev.

As the recent words of Putin, Lavrov, Medvedev and others have made clear to all competent and intelligent people, the Russians have now decided that the time for talking is over. There is an old saying about Russians that applies perfectly well to the current situation – “The Russians are slow to saddle their horses, but when they do, they ride very, very fast.” Those horses have now been saddled.

The Russians have a moral right and an existential imperative to take matters into their own hands at this point, and by doing so, they would not be doing anything the US and NATO have not done themselves on more than one occasion. Russia has not only the right to protect its citizens, it has the responsibility to do so, under international law –

The “R2P” or “Responsibility to Protect” concept is based on three “pillars” [2]

Pillar I – “Each individual state has the responsibility to protect its population from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing, and crimes against humanity.
Pillar II – ” States pledge to assist each other in their protection responsibilities.”
Pillar III – ” If any state is “manifestly failing” in its protection responsibilities, then states should take collective action to protect the population”, in a “timely and decisive response”.

The UN Security Council has recognized and reaffirmed its commitment to the R2P in more than 80 resolutions. R2P does have the force of international law. And while one of the requirements of R2P is a UN Security Council resolution approving its implementation, (which will never happen in the case of Ukraine), there can be no doubt that Ukraine is, in fact, guilty of all the crimes that R2P was created to prevent. Namely, genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing, and crimes against humanity, all of which have been, and continue to be, committed by the Kiev regime and its criminal military on a daily basis. Therefore, Ukraine, as a state, has proven itself “manifestly failing” in its protection responsibilities for Ukrainian citizens living in the Donbass Republics.

Does not Russia have the right under both R2P and Humanitarian Intervention to protect its own citizens as well as other innocent civilians being terrorized and massacred by the forces of the Kiev regime? Both the UK and Belgium (NATO HQ) have defended the legality of military force for humanitarian intervention, and while 77 UN member nations (plus China) have rejected the legality of humanitarian intervention, neither the USA nor a single EU member state is among them. While it is not actually international law, per se, it certainly seems to fall under what western regimes like to call “the precepts and norms” of (actual) international law. [3], [4]

That the actions of the Kiev regime, (controlled by the USA) the Ukrainian military and the neo-nazi volunteer battalions constitute war crimes is beyond any reasonable doubt, and these actions actually include virtually every single war crime listed under international law – from denial of water to almost 2.5 million civilians in Crimea, to the intentional targeting of civilians, journalists and medical personnel by artillery and snipers, as well as random terror attacks on civilian areas, to kidnapping, rape, torture and murder, the US-backed Kiev regime has committed literally every war crime in the book, and continues to do so after 7 years of war. The Russians have over 2,000 specific war crimes cases open against the Kiev regime and its minions, and more are being opened daily. Even the USA has opened war crimes investigations into at least seven US citizens who fought on the Kiev side in the war. These investigations into kidnapping, torture, rape and murder are based on eyewitness, video and forensic evidence, and would clearly not be happening unless there was irrefutable and compelling proof. In fact, it will be the first time the US has prosecuted anyone under the War Crimes Act since its passage into law in 1996, a quarter century ago. [5]

What else can you call the Ukrainian military’s massacre of at least 10,000 ethnic Russian civilians, besides “genocide”. What else can you call house to house searches of civilian homes by heavily armed ukrop soldiers wearing nazi insignia on their uniforms, searching for DPR and Russian passports and the kidnapping of those who have them, other than “ethnic cleansing”? And when you combine war crimes, genocide and ethnic cleansing together in an ongoing and systemic manner, what else can you call all of that, other than what it actually is – “crimes against humanity.” And more specifically, crimes against the almost 1 million residents of Donbass who now hold Russian passports and who are now, de facto and de jure, Russian citizens. And war crimes against a million Russian citizens require a harsh response. After all, we have been down this road before. And everyone on both sides of this conflict should never forget how it ended. Because history repeats itself. Our cause is just, victory will be ours. Again.

That Russia has the military power to force a stop to these crimes is also obvious to any person with the least understanding of the military and mathematics. Though some have said Russia’s reluctance to use its military power to resolve the Ukraine Crisis on its own border has been due to weakness or cowardice, the truth is that Russia has tried and used every possible diplomatic and peaceful alternative to military confrontation to end these crimes against its own citizens on its own borders, for more than seven years. All to no avail. At this point, all diplomatic means have been exhausted, and yet the intolerable criminal acts continue. What other options are there, other than either a peacekeeping force to defend the citizens of Russia and the Donbass Republics against continued Ukrainian aggression, or a liberation force that will liberate at least the eastern half of Ukraine, on a line from Kharkov to Odessa, (which is majority ethnic Russian) from the US/NATO occupation and their quisling puppets? Perhaps the liberation of Kiev is required as well…

I was recently asked to read an essay by a self-styled “expert” who proposed a “no fly zone” and Russian “political recognition” of the Donbass Republics, as a way to fend off further Ukrainian aggression. Both these ideas are both truly laughable and absolutely useless. There has, in fact, been a “no fly zone” in effect in the airspace over the Donbass Republics since July 17th, 2014. On that day, after two Ukrainian Air Force jets shot down the civilian MH-17 jet liner, the Russian Air Force shot down both Ukrainian jets and delivered an ultimatum to Ukraine against any further use of military aircraft in the Donbass region. And that decree has been enforced to this day. (Which is exactly why there has not been a single manned airstrike by Ukraine ever since, and why the recent attack by the Bayraktir drone is such a serious provocation.) But the decree against the use of combat aircraft has not stopped Ukrainian terrorism and war crimes by every other method available, so the time has come for Russia to lay down the law and stop all Ukrainian attacks by force, just as they stopped the airstrikes. [7]

As for “political recognition” of the Republics, it takes a special kind of genius to come up with an absolute 100% “Lose/Lose” situation, but this would certainly qualify as one, which would guarantee further economic sanctions and political isolation against Russia, with exactly zero benefit to Russia or the Donbass Republics, none whatsoever, being absolutely useless in stopping Ukrainian military aggression against the people of Donbass.

As I write this, in late October 2021, all military units of the DPR are on full combat alert. Ukraine continues to reinforce its troops along the Front, and heated rhetoric continues to spew from Kiev. Provocations continue and escalate. Ukrop shellings intensify by the week. When my Mom was dying of cancer, I asked her nurse how much time we had. The nurse’s answer also applies to the upcoming war – “When the changes come over months, you have months left, when the changes come over weeks, you have weeks left. When the changes come over days…” It seems, in Ukraine, once again, the changes are coming over weeks, and increasing in frequency and intensity. “Early winter” is coming. Soon, we will have days left.

Meanwhile, news reports and videos have appeared of Russian armor, including “hundreds” of heavy combat vehicles, and 80,000 to 90,000 troops, moving towards the Ukrainian border from the Bryansk, Voronezh and Rostov military districts. [8], [9], [10]

This covers the entire Russia/Ukraine border. Bryansk is much closer to Kiev than it is to Donetsk, and the troops from that region are not coming to Donbass. However, it is a 4 hour (250 Km) drive along a main highway from the Russian border at Novy Yerkovich to Kiev, and Novy Yerkovich is where the Bryansk troops will be. (A Kaliber cruise missile can deliver 1,100 lbs of TNT over that distance in about 5 minutes.) The Voronezh Task Force will no doubt be set up along the border near Kharkov, a major city with a large Russian population, which lies a scant 30 Km from Russia’s border. The soldiers of the Rostov Southern District (the second most powerful Russian military district after only the Moscow District) will again be deployed along the Russian border with the LPR and DPR. Then, if provocations continue, (or even if they don’t) Russia has multiple options – real, possible, and actually effective strategic military options – here are three:

The first option, the Donbass Plan – The Russian Army can roll into Donbass as Peacekeepers, along the current contact line from North of Lugansk to Mariupol, after publicly announcing it to the world a few hours ahead of time, in order to warn the Ukrainian military against resistance, and to explain and justify its Humanitarian Intervention to the “international community”, and that they come in peace to stop the war crimes and the war, but that any military resistance from any source will be instantly eliminated, with the warning, “If you shoot at us, you die.” This ultimatum would be non-negotiable and backed up by Russia’s full military power, including air and missile forces, and applied not only to Ukrainian military units, but to US and NATO troops in Ukraine and US and NATO ships in the Black Sea, as well as anywhere else. It can and should also include a reminder of Putin’s previous quote that “Russia will respond to any attack by the destruction not only of the source of the attack, but also the source of the orders for the attack.”

This option would stop all terrorist attacks against Donbass, permanently and completely, and would hopefully give time for a diplomatic solution based on new political realities to be found. It would also not entail the taking of any territory under Ukraine control, only that which has long been alleged to already be under “Russian occupation”. Once it is seen that the Russians really are coming, and they really do mean business, it is unlikely that the Americans, NATO or the Ukrainians will fire a shot. This is the least confrontational and least risky approach, as it could be accomplished in a matter of 24 hours, with minimal bloodshed. This may seem to be a pragmatic solution, but it has the least chance of finding a political compromise or permanent solution, in either the short or long terms. And while it would stop war crimes and protect Russian citizens, it would fail to resolve the overriding geopolitical problems Russia faces in Ukraine – belligerent war criminals on Russia’s borders, the critical Crimean water security issue, foreign enemies in control of a neighboring state, etc. One advantage to this plan, however, is that could be used as a first phase of the Novorussia Plan.

The second option, the Novorussia Plan – the Russians can liberate the area known as Novorussia, about one third of current Ukraine, with majority ethnic Russian populations, running along a line from Kharkov to Odessa (inclusive). This not only protects the vast majority of ethnic Russians (not just those in Donbass) from Ukrainian depredations, it solves the critical humanitarian water crisis in Crimea, and cuts Ukraine completely off from the Black Sea, which will eviscerate all that is left of the Ukrainian economy and begin the process of the dismantling of Ukraine along ethnic lines, and eliminate it as a state and as a threat to Russia once and for all. It will also serve as an example to the world of the new political reality that Russia reserves the right to defend itself, unilaterally, if need be, and that the nation with the most powerful military in the world also has the political will to use it, if it has no other choice and if it is forced to defend itself. This scenario has the best hope of long term stability for the region, and even the possibility of a future re-integration of some parts of central Ukraine with Novorussia. Unfortunately, the vast majority of war criminals would probably escape to the west, at least for a while.

The third plan, the Kiev Plan, would be to go to Kiev, which may or may not involve engaging in a major war. Indeed, it is already clear that in the face of a real fight, the US and NATO would immediately desert Ukraine and leave them on their own. And even if Ukraine did not capitulate in the first few hours, any actual conflict would be finished in a few days, and the process of de-nazification and war crime trials could begin. The outcome of the open combat phase of the war would be along the lines of the First Iraq War, (with 80% – 90% of Ukrainian soldiers surrendering without firing a shot) but the subsequent “occupation” would actually be a real liberation. With the removal of neo-nazis and corrupt oligarchs from positions of power, and the improvement of life quality and life chances for a vast majority of the population, most Ukrainians (with the exception of the rabid fascists in Galicia, who can all go to hell or Poland) will see the Russian Army as their grandparents saw the Red Army, as heroes and liberators from foreign occupation. Which is exactly what they would be. This may be the least viable and least attractive of the three scenarios, but it is an option, and it would have the required effect of stopping the war crimes against Russian citizens and eliminating Ukraine as an existential threat right on Russia’s doorstep. It would also have the benefit of the capture a large percentage of war criminals (Ukrainian and otherwise) as well as documents and evidence that might be of great interest to history, Russia and the world. Which makes it an option worthy of serious consideration.

Of all three of these plans, the second, the Novorussia Plan has the most benefit at the least cost. Only going to the contact line in Donbass is not sufficient to resolve the festering Ukrainian problem, and going all the way to Kiev may well cost more than it is worth. The Novorussia Plan resolves all critical issues at an acceptable cost, and can be implemented, if need be, as a second phase of the Donbass Plan.

With the Voronezh troops coming in through (or around) Kharkov, Airborne and amphibious troops landing in (or around) Odessa, the Rostov Army coming up through Donbass, and the Crimean Army and Black Sea Fleet working along the coast, along with the Bryansk Army waiting in reserve and ready to take Kiev if required, the 700 Km Front, running from Kharkov to Odessa could be formed and held in a matter of days. Once Russian fuel and human aid start to flow to liberated Novorussia, grateful citizens will not only not oppose Russian “occupation”, they will support it as genuine liberation, and even be ready to defend it themselves from the cold and hungry Ukrainians who will be begging to be allowed to immigrate to Novorussia. Incorrigible nazis and war criminals will be rounded up, tried, and sentenced to work battalions in Donbass, to repair every single thing destroyed or damaged in the war, including the monument at Saur Mogila and all monuments to the Red Army Liberators in the newly liberated lands of Novorussia. The majority of Russian soldiers will quickly be free to return to Russia, and leave the administration and protection of the newly liberated lands to their inhabitants. A true “WIN/WIN” situation!

The key to all these plans is to prepare the troops, and then make a public announcement about the move into Ukraine by Russian Peacekeepers or Liberators to the UNSC and to the world, with just a few hours advance notice. To not ask for permission or a UNSC resolution, just simply inform that it will be done. And then, of course, to actually do it. A few hours is a long time in combat and war, but not enough time for Ukraine or NATO to make any moves that would change the strategic balance, or the inevitable outcome. And it should be clear that the EU will refuse to become involved in a war with Russia, in or over Ukraine. The US will (or should) know that a full scale war with Russia means a full scale war with China too, one that even the most deluded neocons can have no illusions about winning or even surviving. All that is needed is for Russia to have the political will to use its military power to defend itself against an existential threat on its own doorstep, and to defend its citizens against ongoing and increasing war crimes.

Whatever political fallout from a unilateral move by Russia can easily be dealt with. Anti-Russian propaganda is already at a fever pitch. Western politicians have been saying for years that Russia “invaded” Ukraine, and acting and sanctioning as if this was actually true. How will they act differently once it really is? Russia has insulated itself from the impact of further sanctions – Russia has the economic, energy and food resources, as well as enough allies to weather whatever political storm may follow. When the rulers of the EU have to choose between siding with a defeated Ukrainian regime and the declining US empire or energy from an ascendant Russia that will keep their economies alive and their people from literally freezing, if they do not choose the latter, their people, cold, broke and hungry, will certainly rise up and force them to, which will only further decrease the US’ political reputation and credibility. Of course, these political considerations will apply now or at any given time in the future, but there will never be a better time than now to take the decisive step that must be taken. Any delay will only postpone the inevitable at a greater cost of treasure, infrastructure and blood.

All diplomatic avenues are now closed. Closed by Ukrainian puppets and their US masters, and by their crimes. There is only the language of force now, as the final and only option, and Russia’s victory is a foregone conclusion. It is only left up to our adversaries to decide how painful their defeat will be. The war is inevitable, and so is our victory, so the sooner we get it over with, the better. Vladimir Putin has more than once recounted a lesson that he learned as a youth on the tough streets of Leningrad, a lesson that I hope he remembers today – “If the fight is inevitable, it is best to strike first.”

The fight IS inevitable, and the time to strike is now. The EU will be paralyzed by fuel shortages this winter, and Russia is their only resource to avoid a genuine humanitarian crisis. They will not, they can not, take sides in a conflict against Russia this winter. The USA may have enough fuel for itself, but they face a food and supply crisis of epic proportions, and will need the bulk of their military to deal with their own domestic uprisings at home. But with each passing week, the Ukrainian war criminals are becoming better armed, better trained, and more emboldened. The longer the delay, the harder and more dangerous it will be to do what must be done.

The liberation of Ukraine by Russia will mean the opening of fuel supplies and pipelines, (under Russian control, of course) and humanitarian food aid for hungry Ukrainians who will literally freeze and starve without it. A quick decapitation fait accompli will prevent needless destruction, suffering and loss of life on all sides, but especially for the Ukrainian people. The Europeans will not fight, they cannot afford it. The Americans will not fight, they cannot risk it, and they never intended to anyway. For the Ukrainians, a Russian “occupation”, which in reality will be a liberation, is the best deal they could possibly hope for.

For all decent humans, the use of force is an abhorrent task, but when there are no other options, it simply must be done. Ukraine will remain a deadly enemy of the Russian Federation and the Russian People for as long as it is under US/NATO occupation and control. The threat will remain and only continue to increase, until it is neutralized, and there is now only one way left to do that. There is no dealing with those who are “agreement incapable”, their words are meaningless and their promises are lies. There is no negotiating with terrorists, and Ukraine is a terrorist state. It should be dealt with as such, and dealt with now, for the good of Russia, and for the good of the good people of Donbass and Novorussia, and the good people of Ukraine, and for the good of all Humanity.

“We see 100,000 ukrop troops on the Front, scores of trainloads of troops, armor, ammo and fuel moved into the Donbass region, we hear the heated rhetoric, the preparations for war on both sides of the info sphere”

Or so states my well connected source in Donbass, speaking of activities on either side of the (momentarily) ‘frozen’ conflict. Never mind the Ukrainian military has been shelling the ethnic Russian ‘separatists’ with heavy artillery for weeks (a small detail neglected in Western press.)

When the shit hits the fan on the Donbass (Eastern Ukraine) battlefields again, it will be  a ‘surprise’ and no doubt posed in Western press as a pre-planned ‘act of treachery’ by the ‘Perennially evil Putin’ in the next gambit of the ‘Great Game’ by empire (NATO.)

NATO actually doesn’t give a rats ass for Ukraine other than to use the dumber than f**k nazis (they’d put in charge in the 2014 coup) as cannon fodder to injure & make Russia into a boogeyman. Götterdämmerung? Well, the Western states running with a 19th Century empire mentality in a highly unstable 21st Century always poses the possibility but probably not (yet.) The European NATO states are in no shape to take on Russia, never-minding Russia has no inclination to reoccupy Europe. Of course, as well Russia cannot stand by and allow Kiev to run over the ethnic Russian majority East of the Dnieper river and open to NATO a corridor on the border of Russia’s European heartland. Russia WILL defend the Donbass.

Everyone knows (West & East) that Ukraine is not a viable state as constituted; the Western (Ruthenian) people (especially along the border with Poland) have been long subverted away from their Orthodox roots and are unrecognizable as the same ethnic people (Rusyn) in Belarus, Hungary, Serbia and trans-Carpathia in Ukraine. These people (Ruthenian-Rusyn) have been targeted by cultural subversion for a couple of hundred years in Catholic associated empire (Habsburg, et al) efforts to wrest their identity away from Kievian Rus and ethnic/cultural kinship with Russia. There is  really little new in this; a historical inheritance predating the Nazi proper invasion and predating Napoleon’s invasion of Russia back to the Swedish invasion at the beginning of the 18th Century. Western empire in several incarnations have coveted Russia for over three centuries, and the Western Ukrainians (ethnic Ruthenians, actually) would be naturally aligned with the Polish who’d Catholicized them and it should come as little surprise these people sided with the Nazis (proper) in WWII because they cannot be rehabilitated in any sense of coexistence with Russia and Russians.

It is in the region of the Polish border where the Ukrainian (Nazi collaborator) Stephan Bandera nazi element/legacy is absolutely entrenched (formerly Orthodox but now ‘Eastern Rite’ Catholics answering to Rome), a community deeply saturated with antipathy to Russia and these ‘people’ (if they can recalled that) will never integrate to a Ukraine of the East with its majority ethnic Russian (Orthodox) population. Both sides (NATO/Russia) know this.

Rather than negotiate a reasonable divorce that would split Ukraine into two states with the Dnieper River as the rough boundary (Kiev and Odessa should be in the East) along ethnic lines, NATO simply intends the inevitable Ukraine breakup will happen in such a way as to make Russia into the Western Press’ boogeyman.

I doubt it’s going to lead to WWIII, Europe isn’t ready for this war, it’ll likely just work out as an expensive exercise to make Russia into the villain, little more than that. How much territory Russia will take will depend on kinetic developments to some extent… but I expect Kiev and Odessa could easily be annexed to Russia (perhaps later divided between Russia and a ‘proper’ Ukraine.) There’s possibility of a triple partition; in general terms an ethnic Ruthenian Western (Poland border area) ‘nazified’ sector nobody will want, a central sector populated in majority by proper ethnic Ukrainians and East of the Dnieper which is largely ethnic Russian majority.

The nazis (literally represented in Azov Battalion et al) will begin their offensive and the Russian army will outflank the Donbass front and cut off the Ukrainian supply lines (taking Kiev in the process) and NATO, after having pumped in enough weapons and munitions to insure a bloodbath, will allow the Ukrainian military to be crushed. This will be the West’s convenient means of disposing of the most radical (out of the closet) nazis, a big no-no (the 21st Century’s nazi meme in the guise of NATO disallows flying any flag except the false flag of democracy.)

No matter the immense amount of casualties this will cause, ‘the more blood the better’ from the Western intelligence agencies propaganda apparatchiks point of view as the entire Western world is propagandized concerning ‘Evil Putin’ and ‘crude Russian aggression.’ Thus, the de facto split of Ukraine is accomplished in a comic strip written by Satan where Western Ukraine (what Russia won’t care to absorb) will be propped up by the West with psychologically infantile territorial claim over a Russian population they had terrorized since February 2014.

Russia will be compelled to defend the Donbass, but for appearances (international law) sake, will have to let the nazis initiate the war, resulting in much higher casualties. ‘Preemptive War’ is an international law oxymoron embraced solely by lawless regimes and adhering to the law is a disadvantage Russia will overcome in it’s impatience that finally decides the most economical means of settling the issue is to evict the nazis altogether from territory East of the Dnieper. Of course the West’s propagandists will take this opportunity to convince its gullible populations ‘Russia’s aggression’ justifies immense, new and limitless armaments purchases in a spiraling out of control geopolitical tension that must inevitably lead to the West’s Götterdämmerung after all.

This article also appears at Fort Russ News

This is a follow-on to the excellent reporting by Russell Bentley at Fort Russ News, as well, this author’s initial piece at Fort Russ on the subject of Flight 752.

In the downing of Flight 752 we’ll look at three kilogram verses fifteen kilogram warheads and a direct hit versus a ‘proximity’ detonation. [1], [2]

A proximity detonation is preferred over a direct hit in surface to air missile defense against hostile aircraft. [3]

The rationale behind designing anti-aircraft, surface to air missiles, for proximity detonations is simple. The initial rationale for proximity was a narrow miss in the early days. As accuracy and dependability improved, proximity fuses were often kept, in addition to impact fuse, as it had been discovered an aircraft’s air-frame can actually contain the effect of the explosive warhead, depending on the design of the aircraft and the location of impact. A modern missile guided to proximity detonation (a mere few feet away from the aircraft) is likely to inflict greater damage, more often than not, because the shrapnel from the high explosive warhead has a better chance at penetrating and damaging a wider area of the target, more readily compromising critical flight control systems (especially wing-flaps and associated hydraulics.) This is why light mobile combat systems such as the Russian Strela 10’s early and middle models (through 1988) with a three kilo warhead had both impact and proximity fuses. The Strela, proximity fused three kilogram warhead used by Iraq in Desert Storm (1991) was capable of taking down the American A-10 ‘Warthog’ (two A-10s shot down by this missile, according to the American military), one of the toughest planes to shoot down with ground-fire in modern combat (to this day.) [4]

By the era of the Stinger, very effective against Soviet helicopters in Afghanistan, missiles had become so maneuverable and accurate, the Stinger was only adapted for a proximity fuse in later (recent) development phases; to be effective against very small (difficult to direct hit) UAVs (drones.) The three kilo (average) warhead launched with a MANPAD (shoulder launched) surface to air missile, it was likely a Stinger FIM-92J (proximity fused warhead), provided by CIA to the so-called ‘moderate opposition’, is what had brought down a SU-25 in Syria:

 

As well, it may have been (likely was) a Russian made IGLA (SA-24) with a 2.5 kilo warhead brought down an AN-30 over Ukraine:

What is noticeable with the much larger AN-30 is, with the starboard (right) engine on fire after having been hit with a 2.5 kilogram MANPAD warhead, the plane is stable and keeps course as the crew is bailing out. What the crew understands is, the heat of the fire will quickly compromise the aluminum alloy of the plane’s wing structure, which should soon buckle and there will be no control. It is better to parachute out before that happens.

What we have (very briefly) looked at to now is what 3 kilo heat-seeking warheads can do to military planes, the smaller planes tend to go down more quickly, more often than not, with immediate loss of control, is the main difference. The smaller SU-25 jet’s wing mounted engines (the heat-seeking target) are more tightly integrated to the main air-frame and wing control flaps. A larger plane has a better chance at keeping control, but the control won’t last long if the plane is on fire, and fire is what happens when heat-seeking warheads hit jet engines.

Of course, bailing out with parachutes is not an option for the passengers and crew of a Boeing 737-800, a medium size passenger jet not all that much larger than the AN-30 in the (2nd, above) video.

All of the preceding would be consistent with Iran initially reporting they believed a ‘technical issue’ or engine fire was the culprit that brought down Flight 752 if they were unaware of a missile launch.

Now, the Flight 752 story begins to become problematic at many levels.

A MANPAD heat-seeking missile has small cross-section and radar signature but it does show up on radar. With its’ small signature, it might be understandable if a MANPAD  were missed or somehow interpreted as an anomaly by civilian operators of traffic control at an international airport, but that shouldn’t be the case with a larger missile. For example, a Stinger MANPAD has a missile diameter of 70mm versus 235mm diameter of the Tor m1 missile attributed to shooting down Flight 752. One should expect a Tor M1 missile(s) would have been picked up by the civilian air traffic control radar at Tehran’s international airport. So, already the Iranian story is showing a hole, when it is supposedly ascertained no one but the military knew what had happened. Over at John Helmer’s blog the (increasingly demonstrated to be false) Iranian story is set out very well. [5]

““The plane has been hit at a low altitude by a short-range missile with a small warhead and proximity fuze,” Hajizadeh reported. “It has exploded at the proximity [of the aircraft]; so the plane has found the chance to fly for a while; it hasn’t exploded in the air. After hitting the ground, it has collapsed. So no one at the [Iran Civil] Aviation Organisation knew about it, and I should defend my dear brothers there.””

This is not a particularly convincing deceit on more than one ground; on top of no explanation as to why the civil airport radar didn’t pick the missile up, there is a problem with the missile strike description. We have seen what a 3 kilogram warhead can do to aircraft already. The Tor M1 warhead is fifteen kilograms, this is NOT a small warhead (the Iranians are claiming a 7 kilo warhead but I don’t buy it and 7 kilos is still double what had brought down the AN 30.) A ‘proximity’ strike (mere feet from the aircraft with the thoroughly modern Tor system), should be devastating to a Boeing 737. By comparison, the superman of SAM systems, the S-400, uses a 24 kilo warhead in typical air defense configuration (excludes the ‘below the horizon, search and destroy’ warhead, an entirely different purposed missile.)

Then, John Helmer weighs in as this reporter is composing:

In the initial reporting from the Iranian side, we’d seen [6]

“Qassem Biniaz, an official at the Iranian Ministry of Roads and Urban Development, told state news agency IRNA that an engine caught fire and the pilot was unable to regain control” [6]

Firstly, loss of control is not the immediate effect of an engine fire, loss of control comes after the aluminum alloy structure has been compromised, this is when there will be no regaining of control, but this may actually what had been referred to.

The Western reaction:

“…the U.S. manufacturer does not believe a 3-year-old airplane that just underwent inspection days before caught on fire.

“That aside, an engine fire doesn’t rule out a missile,” the source said. “A missile strike itself could’ve caused the fire. The explanation is ridiculous and the conclusion is more than suspicious.” [7]

The Boeing ‘source’ is actually helpful, if he only knew how: a plane with an engine fire from a missile, that keeps a bit of control, is going to, nearly every time, come down from having been hit by a MANPAD.

We do know the pilot had been able to turn the plane back towards the airport, and the preceding would be consistent with both, a MANPAD strike and a lack of complete understanding of the circumstance; before the Iranians had time to line up all the possible duck configurations, discover the facts and make a decision as to how to proceed with what this author is convinced had been a MANPAD take-down of Flight 752 by a Western intelligence cell inside Iran.

It follows, ultimately Iran decided to take on a false accountability for two simple but compelling reasons; 1) the international institutions and Western press are bought little different to referees and judges can be bribed to determine a boxing match outcome & 2) Western cells operating within Iran to point of bringing down Flight 752 would be a serious black eye to the domestic perception of Iranian security, weakening the regime in the public perception. Falsely swallowing responsibility is the path of least immediate damage to the Iranian governing institution, both internally and externally.

The stupidity on the Western side in this is, yeah, you hit the ayatollahs below the belt and got away with it, but you also likely convinced them there can never be a genuine détente with Western institutions, ever.

Is something like this what happened? Lots of ‘smoke to clear’ yet in emerging picture but the entire business just goes on smelling wrong –

This article first appeared at Fort Russ News

11 January update: The Iranian military has released a statement (English version) claiming responsibility, but point 3 is patent BS:

“3- Under such sensitive and critical circumstances, the Ukrainian airline’s Flight PS752 took off from Imam Khomeini Airport, and when turning around, it approached a sensitive military site of the IRGC, taking the shape and altitude of a hostile target. In such conditions, due to human error and in an unintentional move, the airplane was hit [by the Air Defence], which caused the martyrdom of a number of our compatriots and the deaths of several foreign nationals”

That’s just not a tenable position unless the SAM operators (crew, not one individual, the launch officer should have not only input from the screen operator, but should oversee the radar tracking, looking at all indicators himself) PANICKED and launched on what could only morph into the “shape and altitude of a hostile target” in the radar crew’s fantasy. This aspect of the explanation  does not convince, it ignores too many indicators this was a civilian flight. Is taking responsibility for the shootdown the least damaging (to the Iran security establishment’s domestic reputation) means of laying the issue to rest? Iran’s explanation leaves some loose threads hanging, not least an Iranian shootdown would have been reported immediately via chain of command to leadership; which should bring the initial denials under close scrutiny. In such any case, rather there should have been a non-committal ‘let’s see what the investigation determines.’

My thanks to Russell Bentley, for the timely heads up in the comments at Fort Russ.

So, the  Canadians (Justin Trudeau, a midget political caricature in the shadow of his father) have ‘intelligence’ showing Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752 had been ‘inadvertently’ shot down by the Iranians. Meanwhile the New York Times has come into possession of a video, they had time to have professionally analyzed, showing UIA 752 had been struck by missile. Newsweek reports Ukrainian intelligence has identified fragments of a Tor M1 surface to air missile circulating on social media, ostensibly found in a Tehran suburb. The Tor M1 is a Russian built short range surface to air missile Iran possesses and plainly expected to be on high alert (launch ready) at the time of UIA 752’s departure from Tehran, due to Iran’s strike on the USA bases in Iraq.

So far, so frog, all is consistent with a ‘fog of war’ scenario where the Iranian forces had brought down the civilian jet. But wait a minute.

The first red flag is how quickly all of this was put together for Western media. It was simply too fast.

The second red flag is the video itself. Why, would anyone be recording an empty night sky that does not show flight 752 (at a distance, invisible in the dark) except they would be expecting to see something, and wellah, a missile appears to come from the left of the otherwise empty sky and boom! .. lights up the night sky with a strike on the (otherwise invisible) civilian liner. That kind of stinks, particularly since the otherwise pointless (clearly a psychic compelled someone to film an empty night sky) video immediately ends up in the hands of Western media.

Third, unlike the Ukrainians, the Iranian military is not populated with demoralized, undisciplined drunks who shoot down civilian liners with SAM systems (such as the face-saving device offered to the Western states by Russia, for Ukraine actually having shot down MH 17 with a combat jet.) The Iranians are a highly professional, motivated, well trained caliber of military with a high state of self discipline.

The thoroughly modern Tor M1 system would, via IFF (Identification, Friend or foe), the civilian jet’s transponder, speed, trajectory and flight path, clearly identify Flight 752 as a civilian flight departing Tehran. What’s more is, any radar tracking an actual hostile target would have seen its approach originating from outside a circumference surrounding Tehran. By the time the civilian plane had been turning, its’ point of origin should have already been established within this circumference, i.e. the international airport.

The odd fact as yet unexplained; why UIA 752’s departure time coincided with Iran’s missile launch on the American bases? A priority given to the passengers getting out of Iran with the possibility of escalating tit for tat exchange? And why, other than flight crew, why were there practically no Ukrainians on UIA 752 to Kiev? That seems out of ordinary as well. Was this somehow promoted as an evacuation flight?

Throw into the mix of this the several experts indicating Iran had signaled to the USA the time and targets of the Iranian missiles launch on the American bases in Iraq, to minimalize escalation, and you have all of the necessary elements for a Western intelligence cell in Iran to prepare for recording itself bringing down the Ukrainian flight with a manpad (shoulder launched surface to air missile.) Insofar as producing Tor M1 fragments, this system is widespread across the geopolitical spectrum, even NATO  states possess this system, example given is Greece. Planting these pieces (whether in a Tehran suburb or elsewhere mimicking a Tehran location) to be promptly spread on social media (where military and intelligence agencies maintain thousands of fake profiles), you can pin the fault on the Iranians. This sends a message ‘we can strike inside Iran’ and, as well, causes Iran civil aviation problems on the world stage.

Is this what actually happened? It would explain the Iranians immediate denials, as simple as their launch systems people would probably (and likely truthfully) report no Tor M1 had been fired.

War crimes are nothing new in regards to the West directed at Iran, after all, the cynical inside joke at Department of State over the 2003 rationale for invading Iraq was, ‘yeah, we know they have chemical weapons, we gave them to Saddam to use on Iran.’

Of course this is entirely speculation, the case could go either way and we shall see what happens with the already argued over investigative efforts… but in my opinion the Western media presentation smells bad, the picture emerged too quickly, too conveniently.

11 January (2nd update) in the comments at Ft Russ, Russell Bentley has this to say:

“You know, something still smells fishy about this. In my research yesterday, I discovered the SA-15 actually has two targeting systems – Radar and TV. The TV is a visual system, all weather, day/night, NV/IR, with first class optics and a 20 Km range. The radar has a 25 Km range, but the missiles have a 15 Km range, max. So if they could hit it, they HAD to be able to see it. And as you said, the SA-15’s were part of an integrated system, and would have known that a sudden appearance of a blip on the screen without prior warning from longer range systems located closer to the border would have required double checking. And your point about turning – as I understand, it did not turn until after it was hit by the first missile. (And BTW, it appears to have been hit by TWO missiles, while it was going 316 MPH at an altitude of less than 8,000 feet, well within range of Strela, Igla, Stinger, Polish Grom and British Starstreak MANPADS.) It’s original flight path, towards Parand, is 180 degrees away from the Aria military airfield, and 90 degrees away from Tehran. In fact, the flight path would have been very similar to what Iranian AF jets would have taken if they were going to intercept incoming enemy aircraft from Iraq, so it is really hardly believable that an outgoing 737 could be mistaken for an incoming “bogey”. Particularly when you consider the IRGCAF’s (utterly non-existent) reputation for “panic and incompetence””

My Reply:

“It is entirely feasible the Iranians decided to falsely swallow responsibility as the easiest means of deflecting the several possibilities for complications, both external & internal. As a matter of fact, I actually think that’s what Saudi Arabia ultimately decided to do in the case of Jamal Khashoggi. S**t is flung in deeply devious ways in geopolitics, it comes with the territory (in a severely messed up world.)”

 

Is it a case of I don’t understand Russian propaganda or is it Russian propagandists don’t fully understand the Western mentality or is it a case of the Russians are handling the madmen of NATO with ‘kid gloves’ ?

To begin, understanding the NATO nations’ intelligence agencies are corrupt to the core is as simple as reading up on GLADIO, where false-flag terrorism had been employed to shape the thinking of the Western democracies’ populations; including the bombings and machine-gunning innocents across Western Europe. Should it be a surprise the Russians do not point to this established history in relation to the downing of MH17? Would the outcome of being perfectly honest result in ‘conspiracy’ charges by the Western democracies and possibly banned (sanctioned) websites, for instance RT and Sputnik?

The facts are succinct. There is a preponderance of the evidence MH17 had been brought down by a Ukrainian SU-25 combat jet as attested to by the Russians, who handed the relevant radar data to the Dutch-led investigation. This evidence had been at first stonewalled and finally ignored. Meanwhile (quite sometime later) the Western led investigation produced fragments of a (Soviet era) Russian manufactured Buk surface to air missile. The Russians declassified the Soviet era documents showing that particular missile (custody established by serial number) had been delivered to and should have been in the possession of (post-Soviet inheritance) Ukraine.

Now, where I have a problem with the Russian side is, the Russians finally saying (metaphor) ‘if you want to own the Buk, go ahead, because if you claim that particular missile brought down MH17, Ukraine owns the crime’ (no one is accusing neo-nazi led Ukraine of being particularly intelligent, especially when producing Buk fragments that can be traced directly back to the Ukrainian military.)

Here’s the evidence backed by witnesses on the ground and apparent actual circumstance:

“A Ukraine Air Force military jet was detected gaining height, it’s distance from the Malaysian Boeing was 3 to 5km,” said the head of the Main Operations Directorate of the HQ of Russia’s military forces, Lieutenant-General Andrey Kartopolov speaking at a media conference in Moscow on Monday.

“[We] would like to get an explanation as to why the military jet was flying along a civil aviation corridor at almost the same time and at the same level as a passenger plane,” he stated” [1]

Here’s the Russian side’s weasel words that follow the Dutch-led investigation producing the Buk fragments:

“I’ll again go back to the beginning. From the very moment of the crash, Russia was very determined to assist in the investigation. That is why Russia was providing all information that emerged about the disaster, including the testimony of the Ukrainian military, since the evidence of a second aircraft in the sky was around at that time. Verifying the accounts [of the incident] is the task of the international investigation.

“Later, more weighty arguments and evidence began to emerge in favour of the scenario of a surface-to-air missile, which, as a matter of fact, was confirmed by an experiment by the Almaz-Antey concern back in 2015. They identified the type of missile — it’s an old modification — the trajectory of its flight and, therefore, the place from which it was launched. This account, as well as the type of missile and the launch site, which were originally established by Almaz-Antey, were finally confirmed by the data of the Ust-Donetsk radar station, which Russia also handed over, and by the debris of the missile found by the JIT, which helped to establish its Ukrainian origin” [2]

Preceding is what appears to be irreconcilable accounts (noting the second Russian version does not claim placing the SU-25 at the scene was a mistake) if one attributes “including the testimony of the Ukrainian military” to the Ukrainian air force mechanic who defected to Russia, fearing for his life, after overhearing the (just landed) pilot of the SU-25 (the mechanic had armed with air to air missiles) appear to claim he’d shot down the MH17 civilian flight. It is also noteworthy the Ukrainian SU-25 pilot later ‘committed suicide.’ [3] [4]

The Buk scenario creates a picture of Ukraine forces would risk downing their own combat plane in immediate proximity to MH17 at point of destruction. It makes no sense. What does make sense is, the Ukrainian Buk could have been exploded in controlled circumstance to ‘create’ evidence. What also makes sense is, the Russians taking an attitude if the Dutch-led JIT [Joint Investigative Team] wants to claim it was that particular Buk missile brought MH17 down, Ukraine owns the responsibility, so let them. This also allows for a future picture painted it was incompetence, not malice, downed MH17, avoiding the otherwise indisputable ‘act of war’ where the civilian liner had been deliberately destroyed for purpose of falsely implicating Russia. Opening the door for the Ukrainian Buk points to Russia pre-positioning to allow for a ‘graceful exit’ from the crime (assigned to Ukrainian forces incompetence), were the Western democracies ever to wish to mend relations with Russia; nevertheless a case of ‘doing truth no favor.’

Insofar as Western (or Western aligned) intelligence agencies murderous behaviors concerning shoot-down of airplanes, there is a recent analysis of the assassination of Dag Hammarskjold that shares traits with the downing of MH17; the absolute refusal of certain countries (Ukraine re MH17’s air traffic control records, USA re MH17 satellite photos & USA re Hammarskjold’s DC-6 flight) to release records in their possession.

On 15 December 2017, The New York Times ran an editorial piece by Mikheil Saakashvili, with the NYT altogether neglecting to mention Saakashvili is not only wanted (arrest warrant) in his native Georgia for corruption, abuse of power and shielding murderers from prosecution, but is increasingly implicated in the murders of some 80 police and protestors in February of 2014. This latter, Ukraine event, the so-called ‘Maidan Massacre’, has risen to a level of ‘preponderance of the evidence’ necessary for a civil conviction of Saakashvili under USA law, and were the known, necessary parties [witnesses] available to honest prosecution, almost certainly a criminal ‘beyond a reasonable doubt’ conviction could be reached as well. Yet, the Times ran this man’s opinion piece as though he were a lily-white reformer, unjustly persecuted, as Saakashvili claims.

The evidence timeline:

Initially, an intercepted, leaked phone call between the European Union’s Cathrine Ashton and the Estonian foreign minister (verified as authentic by the Estonian), indicates it was a member (or members) of the new USA supported Ukrainian administration were behind the snipers who killed both protestors and police during confrontation in February 2014 at Kiev. (conversation begins about 2 minutes into this youtube posting)

John Kerry had claimed it was the ousted (Russia friendly, Yanukovych) administration behind the snipers.

Subsequently, in April 2015, a Polish MEP (Member of European Parliament), who happens to be a conservative Catholic – indicating an honest man – as opposed to the more typical Polish-Catholic Russophobe, states in a Polish press interview, the Maidan snipers were trained in Poland by USA intelligence services:

Question: “[you are] a supporter of the thesis it was a CIA operation?”

Answer: “Maidan was also our operation. The snipers were trained in Poland”

The original interview transcript in Polish language (Polish online magazine) HERE

A reasonable English language summary of the interview by PRAVDA:

In November 2017, Italian investigative journalist, Gian Micalessin, has interviewed three of the snipers who shot the people in Maidan square. They were Georgians sent to Ukraine by security services people aligned with American allied-educated Mikhail Saakashvili. American Brian Christopher Boyenger ran the sniper operation on location:

 

Excerpts from an expanded English translation of the Italian (the video subtitles are abridged)

“Both [witnesses] Nergadze and Zalogy are linked to former Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili”

“All three of our participants say that they were recruited at the end of 2013 by Mamuka Mamulashvili, a Saakashvili military advisor who, after the Maidan action, will move to the Donbass, to lead the so-called Georgian Legion in clashes with ethnic Russian insurgents”

““One day around February 15 [states Alexander] Mamualashvili personally visited our tent. There was another guy in his uniform with him. He introduced him and told us he was an instructor, an American soldier.” The US military veteran Brian Christopher Boyenger, is a former officer and sniper for the 101st Airborne Division. After Maidan, [Boyenger] moves on to the Donbass front, where he will fight in the ranks of the Georgian Legion alongside Mamulashvili”

““We were always in touch with this Bryan, [Nergadze explains] he was a Mamulashvili man. It was he who gave us the orders. I had to follow all his instructions“”

““On February 18 [recalls Zalogy] someone took some weapons to my room. In the room with me there were two Lithuanians, the weapons were unpacked by them.””

This preceding, newest information, begins to bring a larger picture into focus; the Lithuanian snipers, taken together with the American, are consistent with the Polish account of a CIA operation. Brian Christopher Boyenger, in the larger picture, profiles as a CIA paramilitary officer. What’s more is, the Lithuanians are clearly trained per a Georgian witness going on to state…

“the Lithuanians opened the window. One of them fired, one shot, while the other closed the window”

…consistent with the Polish account. This training is reflected in the coordinated action of the two Lithuanians, concealing the location of the sniper fire.

All of the preceding is consistent with one of the Georgians stating…

“The first meeting was with Mamulashvili [was] at the office of the National Movement” [Zalogy said] The Ukrainian uprising in 2013 was similar to the [Pink Revolution] that took place in Georgia years before. We had to direct and guide it using the same pattern used for the “Pink Revolution”

Saakashvili was brought into power by the so-called ‘Pink Revolution’ and this Saakashvili associated veteran’s statement points to old allegations the Pink Revolution had been a CIA engineered event are more than credible.

Now, certain statements of Saakashvili himself, in his Times editorial, are worth examining:

“By November, I, along with a team of my former Georgian colleagues, helped create a new Ukrainian police force. We also completely transformed the corrupt way state contracts were purchased and helped to form the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine, a watchdog. At that time, Mr. Poroshenko welcomed our help. He described me as “a great friend of Ukraine” and granted me and other Georgian reformers citizenship.

Several of us were invited to join the Ukrainian government. One became the head of the national police force and another was appointed minister of health. Another Georgian became the deputy director of the anticorruption [sic] bureau”

What appears to have happened here is, Central Intelligence had, subsequent to the 2014 coup and related massacre, used Saakashvili to initiate building a so-called ‘5th column’ into civil Ukrainian security structures, aside from the American trained and supplied (overt, NATO, Pentagon), and battlefield advised (covert, Central Intelligence) military structures. The purpose of penetrating the civil security structures would be, primarily, to build ‘leverage’ within the civil administrative apparatus to better control recalcitrant personalities, President Poroshenko especially, for reasons having to do with the Ukrainians put into power were, in the beginning, too stupid (Svoboda or neo-nazis) to manipulate properly, and in the subsequent case of Poroshenko, too stubborn.

Poroshenko, was willing to bring Saakashvili onboard, they had, after all, been partners in crime to a point of closeness where the only sensible question in any circumstance of betrayal between the two would be ‘et tu Brute?’ But Poroshenko somehow got wind of (was tipped) to what Saakashvili, a long time CIA asset, was actually up to, and began counter-moves to block him, leading to the circumstance of today.

What Poroshenko does understand is, the USA’s pressure to take on the Donbass ethnic Russian rebels will see him deposed and the east of Ukraine lost to the Dnieper River, inclusive of Odessa and Kiev. Putin has made clear the present, Russophobic, regime controlling Kiev, will not be allowed to militarily overrun the ethnic Russian Donbass region of Ukraine. Putin has also stated his military would take Kiev in two weeks time, maximum, if and when a decision is taken to do so. But this is what NATO wants, to further politically isolate Russia as an ‘aggressor’ state and justify its military buildup on Russia’s borders. The NATO problem is Poroshenko gives lip-service to this but doesn’t initiate the wider military action in the rebel region necessary to actually trigger Russia.

What Saakashvili apparently does not understand is, his currency as an asset for the CIA is about expended. Saakashvili’s Central Intelligence asset track record:

1) CIA ‘color revolution’ in Georgia, successful.

2) Led Georgia’s NATO (Condoleezza Rice engineered) proxy war with Russia, 2008, and badly mishandled it.

3) Lost Georgia itself, as a NATO proxy state, with his incompetent handling of domestic fallout from the 2008 war, lost in several absolutely humiliating ways, to Russia.

4) Co-author of CIA ‘color revolution’ (coup) in Ukraine, winter of 2013-14, successful.

5) CIA insertion into Ukraine’s administrative apparatus, 2015-16, mishandled.

6) CIA December 2017 counter-revolution to it’s own February 2014 coup, in progress.

It is this last which bodes very ill for Saakashvili. His score in polls is at 2% or less. There is virtually no chance of success, despite other western intelligence assets (example given, Yulia Tymoshenko of Germany’s Bundesnachrichtendienst, as well, spook controlled groups and NGOs such as ‘civil society’ fronts), offering what amounts to artificial support.

In chess terms, CIA asset Saakashvili has been devalued, from a rook (castle) to pawn, to be sacrificed on the board-game of geopolitics. Saakashvili’s handlers know he cannot win this most recent gambit. What does his sacrifice accomplish? To remind (send a message to) Poroshenko, pointing out who actually calls the shots by demonstrating Poroshenko’s helplessness to deal with Saakashvili. This first part has already been accomplished. The second act should be upcoming assassination of Saakashvili, to be blamed on either Poroshenko or Putin, depending on whether or not Poroshenko begins to ‘play ball’, while ridding the CIA of a badly compromised asset and possible problematic witness, that is Saakashvili, were he to be apprehended in a competent jurisdiction of law and held account to his recently exposed crimes.

Meanwhile, The New York Times, a CIA asset since the days of “Operation Mockingbird“, brings the western world Saakashvili’s (actually the agency’s) ‘cover story’ when neglecting to point out any of the known, compromising facts, concerning Mikhail Saakashvili.

How I became Guv’nor & Escaped Jail

New York Times
15 December 2017
by McHeil Saakashvili

KIEV, Ukraine — I-I may be the first royal asshole, since a Habsburg, to be left stateless.

I-In the past, I-I’ve also been described as one of the most incompetent enemies of President Vladimir Putin of R’rruussia. I-I-I recently spent three days in solitary confinement, held by my neo-nazi former partners in Ukraine, which, among other allegations, accused me of being an agent of the R’rruussian secret service.

How could this happen?

After I-I was evicted as the CIA installed dictator of Georgia, during which time which I-I-I fellatio-ed my homeland into what the World Bank described as the No. 1 NATO sycophant nation in the world, I-I ran to the United States to escape corruption charges.

But in November 2013, color revolution began in Ukraine, the country where I-I had earlier in my life studied and lived for many years, to get rid of another incompetent, but pro-R’rruussian president. After students were arranged to be beaten in Kiev’s central square, by people I-I-I admire, I-I knew I-I-I had to be there. I-I traveled to Ukraine to arrange some Georgian snipers on the Maidan, joining Lithuanian snipers trained by the CIA in Poland.

I-Initially, after the ouster of the pro-R’rruussian president, Viktor Yanukovych, the opportunity for looting Ukraine looked promising. Following muscling himself to the presidency, my school days boyfriend Poroshenko, in May 2015, granted me full Ukrainian mafia membership.

By November, I-I, together with some goons of my former Georgian secret services, created a new Ukraine-based mafia enforcers squad. We moved on state contracts purchasing and helped to form the National A-Anti-Corruption Front of Ukraine, euphemism for a new organized crime repository.

At that time, my ex-boyfriend Poroshenko, w-welcomed our business model. He described me as “a great friend of Ukraine” and granted me and other Georgian mafiasos concessions. Some of us were invited into the Ukrainian mafia capos’ club. One became the head of the national police force and another was a-appointed minister of health. Another Georgian capo became the deputy director of my anti-corruption front.

I-I-I demanded to be godfather of the Odessa region, to defend it from R’rruussian attempts to stabilize it and to initiate reforms there. Those reforms might have brought in many y-young ethnic R’rruussian Ukrainians, who were supported by the local population, and see them them get rid of the neo-nazi entrenched street gangs. Everything was going to hell, excuse me, I-I meant well, and by late 2016, we found our efforts at co-opting turf were encroaching on turf held by the central government.

My ex-boyfriend Poroshenko, a candy oligarch who had gotten his start as a high end male hooker, and his entourage, not only stopped protecting my turf in Odessa and ceased supporting the capos supporting me in the government, but also directly started to undermine some of our turf grabs. I -I believe that this was mostly out of personal interest: Our muscling in was leading to less space for them to c-control the several crime syndicates. Moreover, my National A-Anti-Corruption Front had begun to move in on turf of the president’s close associates.

In November 2016, I-I resigned from my post as g-governor and came out of the closet, to please John Brennan, as this would reveal the nature of my relationship to my ex-boyfriend. Poroshenko was outraged. A few months later, while t-taking instruction from CIA in Poland, I-I was stripped of my Ukrainian capo godfathership. Because I-I had lost my Georgian mafia protection and become a Ukrainian mafiaso, that meant I-I-I was now officially stateless. Despite receiving direct threats that I-I should not return to Ukraine, I-I had no choice but to come back — officially stateless b-but instructed by CIA to try, and expand my hard-won turf.

I-I-I also began to lead a mobilization for change of mafia bosses, forming a coalition with the arch-evil Yulia Tymoshenko, who gives me gynophobia-based, adrenaline-stimulated nausea, while picking up s-support of western intelligence agency fronted ‘civil society’ NGOs, t-to protest in front of Parliament.

I-In the meantime, my National A-Anti-Corruption Front, after it muscled in on the president’s turf by skimming Halloween candy export contracts, came under intense attack. My capos were i-interrogated by prosecutors, my undercover hit-men were exposed, and attempts were made at curtailing my power. Just a few years earlier, I-I had assisted the neo-nazis of Ukraine to unseat their previous president in large part to gain control over these institutions. These are i-immensely ungrateful people.

So last week my p-party, the Movement for New Fronts, organized one of the biggest rallies since the Maidan murders were arranged by my foot-soldiers together with those ungrateful bastards, to protest against their counter-turf grabs and the attacks on my anti-corruption front. Two days later, my apartment, which is near the M-Maidan, was searched by rival mafia soldiers who tried to arrest me — where is the courtesy and gratitude?! My CIA m-minders intervened and freed me from my rival forces’ minivan. I-I was arrested again a few days later. I-I-I was charged with aiding and abetting a criminal organization!! The hypocrisy!! And the a-added insult of charged with assisting associates of the ousted president, Mr. Yanukovych, who had fled to R’rruussia!!!

My ex-boyfriend’s capo-general announced that I-I am an a-agent of the R’rruussian secret police and that my goal is to loot Ukraine! My CIA m-minders called that accusation serious!

Ukraine risks, rather, being stabilized by R’rruussia. And indeed, R‘rruussia has powerful allies in this attempt at s-stabilization: Ukraine’s homegrown, ethnic R’rruussians, who have fought the Bandera legacy’s SS Galacian brigades attempted takeover of Ukraine’s eastern regions.

I-I believe in a great future for looters of Ukraine. As in other countries in Eastern Europe, its successful looting, I-I-I believe, lies in the reversal of a trend in w-which oligarchs, who have been trained by CIA to m-manipulate elections, are too greedy and won’t share their hard-won opportunities at corruption. I-I hope to live until the not-so-distant day when I-I-I will be in a position to control this l-looting with the subservience of the indigenous Ukrainian capos.

On M-Monday, a judge was put under tremendous pressure by CIA to set me free. I-I will now contest the r-rival capos maneuvering against me, and I-I-I am confident I-I-I-I will be fully in charge one day. My a-anti-corruption front’s ‘kinder, gentler’ (less t-transparent, EU style) looting is this country’s hope and its f-f-future.

The New York Times, which published the editorial by Saakashvili this piece parodies, on 15 December 2017, altogether neglects to mention Saakashvili is wanted in his native Georgia for corruption (theft of 3.4 million USD), abuse of office and complicity in shielding his secret service from prosecution for a murder.

What is clear is, Saakashvili doesn’t stand a chance. His Central Intelligence Agency handlers are wringing what little they can out of him, to bring Poroshenko into line and get that oaf busy with cracking down on the Donbass separatist region in Ukraine, to keep tensions high with Russia.

Meanwhile, since it had come out via Italian investigative journalist, Gian Micalessin, that some of the 2014 Maidan square snipers (80 dead, protestors and police) are tied directly to Mikheil Saakashvili’s contacts in the Georgian security services…

All three of our participants say that they were recruited at the end of 2013 by Mamuka Mamulashvili, a Saakashvili military advisor who, after the Maidan action, will move to the Donbass, to lead the so-called Georgian Legion in clashes with ethnic Russian insurgents.

“The first meeting was with Mamulashvili [was] at the office of the National Movement,” Zalogy said. “The Ukrainian uprising in 2013 was similar to the” Pink Revolution “that took place in Georgia years before. We had to direct and guide it using the same pattern used for the “Pink Revolution”

…the CIA likely wants rid of him. I won’t be surprised at all if this present circumstance is ultimately engineered to have Saakashvili assassinated, with blame put on Putin.

Narcissist & Goon

^ The Narcissist and the Goon ^

In the New York Times photo (August, 2008) you’re looking at two useful idiots. If everything Condoleezza touched, turned to shit, it is the criminal piece of shit on the right of the photo, represents closing out Condoleezza’s career with a classic, utter failure, typical of the Bush administration. Today, we’ll profile this idiot, a New York lawyer named ‘McHeil’ Saakashvili, for purpose of showing just how counter-intuitive it is, to shove purportedly high IQ type personalities, without an iota of decency or common sense, into positions of leadership.

Mikheil Saakashvili’s trajectory:

Attended Ukraine’s Kiev University Institute of International Relations towards the end of the Soviet era. Subsequently, Saakashvili was educated in the USA, on a Department of State sponsored fellowship (attended Columbia University law school as an Edmund S. Muskie Fellow) in the early 90s and then practiced commercial law at Patterson, Belknap, Webb & Tyler, in New York City. No doubt was recruited by the CIA during this period, concerning his next career move.

Returned to Georgia and was elected to parliament.

Came to power as President of Georgia through a CIA sponsored coup in 2003 (the Rose Revolution.)

Had been entirely outsmarted, in a geopolitical game of provocation-counter-provocation, as instigator-pawn in the hands of NATO, resulting in the Russia-Georgia war of 2008.

Prematurely initiated what would become a suicidal provocation of Russia, when ordering sniper and mortar attacks on South Ossetia on 1 August 2008, killing six people including a Russian peacekeeper, as NATO sponsored war games were wrapping up, with the USA military participating. The ‘Immediate Response 2008’ NATO war games including 1,000 U.S. troops had just ended and elements of US special forces (acting as CIA paramilitary) remained in Georgia. The Russians did not take the bait with an over-reaction, but simply continued preparations to counter what they saw coming.

Six days later, as the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games was underway in Beijing, where George W. Bush was sitting with then Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, Georgia launched an all-out assault on the South Ossetian capital of Tskhinvali, ostensibly to bring a nominally Georgian region, that is ‘lawless’ South Ossetia, under control of Georgian sovereignty. This is a region which had refused to align with Georgia with the breakup of the Soviet Union but attached itself to Russia instead.

President Medvedev ordered the Georgians militarily engaged, Russian forces promptly rolled over the Georgian offensive and by the time the war ends, five days later, much of Georgia has been occupied.

Condoleezza. She Makes Phone Calls.

On the USA side, it was Condoleezza Rice coordinating public relations with Saakashvili, finally managing to beg a ceasefire from the Russians, just prior to the very near, and complete, collapse of the Georgian military. Prior to capitulation, most of this western intelligence engineered media scrum refers to, or portrays, images of Condoleezza on the phone, like a maniacally barking Chihuahua, insisting on world condemnation of Russian aggression. The red bear yawns.

Meanwhile, the U.S. had provided military transport planes to bring 2,000 Georgian troops back from Iraq post-haste, for the fighting, too late, the USA trained, supported and advised Georgian military, replete with CIA paramilitary (USA special forces), had been humiliated.

The Georgia ambassador to the USA stated “No one predicted it would go this far”, giving up this had been a plan in collusion with the USA from the beginning. Five months later, the Bush administration ends and Rice leaves office with an absolutely failed legacy, from Afghanistan to Iraq, with Georgia the exclamation point.

One year later, in September 2009, a European Union investigation of the war came to conclusion there was no question whatsoever it was Georgia had initiated the major hostilities in South Ossetia (never mind Wikipedia reads like a peculiar personality at Stanford’s Hoover Institution dictated what amounts to a blatant, self-excusing revisionist history.)

Saakashvili remained the USA’s [now not very] useful idiot, as President of Georgia (accused of reelection electoral fraud), until forced out by term limits in 2013. Shortly after, he leaves Georgia, with the opposition in power, investigating Saakashvili’s abuse of office. Eventually a warrant is issued for Saakashvili’s arrest concerning:

1) shielding his interior ministry’s murder of Sandro Girgviliani;
2) embezzlement of funds from the State Protection Service for personal use, a total of 9 million Georgian lari (3.37 million US dollars);
3) complicity in the beating of Georgian MP Valery Gelashvili;
4) ordering the raid and seizure of Imedi TV, which had exposed and criticized the Saakashvili regime’s criminal behaviors

In 2014 Saakashvili is one of many CIA associated co-engineers of the Maidan coup in Ukraine, deeply invested in the sniper action, resulting in murders of nearly 100 police and protestors alike. In May of 2015 he is rewarded with the governorship of Odessa Oblast [a region] by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko (with a push from the USA.) Awarded a Ukrainian passport, Saakashvili’s citizenship is revoked, by Georgia, for taking Ukrainian citizenship.

Some might wonder how it could be a Georgian could leave his own country and be immediately appointed to high office in Ukraine (Governor of Odessa.) The short story is, this generation of politicians all held a common Soviet citizenship, prior to the 1990s, and there is not nearly the same sense of ‘foreign’ between the former Soviet states as one might typically experience in western countries. Saakashvili’s initial higher education had been at university in Kiev, Ukraine, as an ordinary citizen (not a foreign student) of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR.)

Meanwhile, Saakashvili’s USA handlers actually expected him to clamp down on Ukraine’s runaway corruption and this idiot actually tried to do so (the corrupt attempting cleaning up the corrupt, geopolitics is rife with incompetent oxymoron) and alienated the Ukrainian administration across the board, up to and including, his candy oligarch mentor, Poroshenko. Saakashvili resigned before he could be fired by Poroshenko, in September 2016. Poroshenko then revoked Saakashvili’s citizenship while McHeil was abroad, effectively deporting him, rendering Saakashvili a stateless exile in Poland.

By this time, with 2017 approaching, the Ukraine conflict is simmering and not nearly ‘hot’ enough, to please the western intelligence agencies. Poroshenko, who gives lip service (political fellatio) to western intelligence agencies’ (read NATO) desire of cracking down on the Donbass ethnic Russian rebels, but only that, understands reigniting all out war will only result in his loss of control over (and administration’s looting of) whatever remains of Ukraine’s resources. What Poroshenko may not fully understand is, the NATO states’ intelligence agencies, having given up on stabilizing Ukraine as a NATO aligned state, are not only perfectly willing, but by this time probably determined, to altogether destroy Ukraine, if necessary, to provoke Putin.

Re-enters the picture, in 2017, the moron Saakashvili. Banned from entry to Ukraine, he ‘manifests’ (a paid) crowd and the border guards ‘fail’ (read were bribed) to prevent his entry. Repeat a near identical scene in Kiev, as though scripted; Poroshenko’s police break down his apartment door, McHeil Saakashvili retreats to the roof and shouts down to people in the street “I’m McHeil Saakashvili, save me from the candy oligarch’s police!” As if the average Ukrainian would care, Saakashvili’s polling popularity registers at 2%. But like magic, a (hired) crowd manifests to intercept the police van taking him in. National guard troops sent to secure the van (read were bribed) ‘fail’ to stop the crowd setting McHeil free. At last glimpse (prior to posting this), McHeil is living in a tent pitched in front of Ukraine’s parliament, untouched (read the candyman’s security apparatus is bought off.) All of this will have cost NATO intelligence (read CIA, MI6 & Germany’s BND, primarily) what amounts to pennies in a Ukraine where people are near to subsisting on the air one can breathe, since neo-nazis were put into power by the same.

Message to the candy oligarch Poroshenko? ‘We own you, so start playing ball, and raise the violence levels in Donbass, so we can point the finger at Putin, or else you’ll get what’s coming to you.’

McHeil Saakashvili’s future? Well, this prognosis is quite interesting. My best educated guess would be, based on decades observation and study, is McHeil is being  set up for assassination, to be blamed on either Poroshenko (to push him out) or more likely, Putin. This useful idiot, Saakashvili, with his history of failures, is to be sacrificed for cynical but practical reasons. Number one, he’s a persistent failure. Number two, he is a recent embarrassment, not so much for his flamboyancy, but because he has been compromised and dead men don’t talk. The propaganda methodology is straightforward; in the case of blaming Putin, motive will be ascribed to revenge linked to the 2008 war. Saaskashvili is probably not aware…

…investigative reporting has very recently interviewed 3 Georgian snipers who were part of initiating the Maiden massacre (80 dead) and these snipers have not only been tied directly to Saakashvili’s connections in the Georgian security services, but have admitted as much. If Saakashvilli knew this, there is no way he’d be camped on a public square in Kiev. Unlike the related Odessa massacre documentary, which had been almost immediately banned (by the CIA’s friends) at youtube, this documentary has been allowed to remain up. The ‘right’ people in Ukraine will eventually stumble across it.

The preferred outcome of the western intelligence agencies would be a Ukrainian opposed to the 2014 ‘color revolution’ (coup) will take their chance (while feeling very justified, in the absence of legitimate institutions) to deliver vigilante justice and take Saakashvili out (to be blamed on Putin in western press.) If this doesn’t work out, a ‘patsy’ will be employed to same effect. If the candy oligarch has half a brain, he’ll find a way to arrest McHeil and hand him to Georgia. Meanwhile, in present circumstance, McHeil Saakashvili is a dead man walking.

9 December 2017 update: Saakashvili was finally arrested last night and brought into pre-trial detention center. Now, the candy oligarch still has a dilemma. If he hands Saaksashvili to Georgia, does the Saakashvilli complicity in the 2014 Ukraine coup, that is providing snipers, see more light of day, exposing the current Ukrainian regime? Moreover, if candy-man keeps McHeil in a Kiev dungeon and there were to be another ‘regime change’ with McHeil once again free, he no doubt ‘knows too much’ about candy-man’s corruption. On the other hand, if the candy oligarch does keep Saakashvili in a Ukrainian prison, to keep the idiot’s mouth shut, and McHeil somehow dies in custody, that looks bad too.

Maybe Poroshenko should ask Putin what to do (laughs.)

12 December 2017 update: Yesterday the court freed McHeil, opening the dunce to  assassination, certainly the CIA’s preferred outcome, anything but extradited to Georgia where he might ‘sing’ or be faced with credible witnesses and evidence of his political crimes, not only corruption. The prosecutor appeals but in a totally corrupt Ukraine, it is clear who holds the upper hand and it isn’t Poroshenko. Oligarch Gas Princess (CIA Orange Revolution asset) Tymoshenko embraces McHeil like a Black Widow spider, oh yeah, that’s auspicious. Break a leg, as the thespians say…

Note on the preceding: Condoleezza Rice has been floated within the Trump administration as a possible ‘special envoy’ tasked to ‘stabilize’ the Balkans, only going to emphasize the willingness of Trump to employ a previously proven ‘reverse Midas touch’ will see his administration surpass all the years of near total idiocy of the consummate moron ‘dubya.’ The ‘other’ side of that coin is, insofar as useful idiots, Condoleezza’s incompetence has been responsible for generating conflict enriching the arms dealers in multiple hundreds of billions. A useful idiot, indeed.

Observation: ‘Dr’ Rice, as well the highly educated Mikheil Saakashvili, only go to prove ‘education’ is not a defining point of good leadership; ethics and common sense are the by far better qualifications. We are, sadly, lacking these latter two qualifications, perhaps altogether, in the western democracies present leaders. It has been said ‘cream rises to the top.’  Surely it does, but as a metaphor, only in a sanitary environment in institutions of government. Much more true in present circumstance is ‘flotsam rises to the top of the sewage pond.’

Ukraine’s president Poroshenko, who had given former Georgia President in exile (wanted for corruption), Mikhail Saakashvili, a Ukrainian passport but then had the passport cancelled, ordered Saakashvili arrested this morning. Now arch-enemies, candy oligarch Poroshenko is equally deserving of no less a rotten fate. So, the sharks turn on each other in Ukraine’s feeding frenzy. Here is Saakashvili about the time Russian troops were over-running the USA trained Georgian army in 2008, following this former Georgian president moron attacking South Ossetia (while George W Bush had been sitting next to Putin at the Olympics.)

Now, this newest color revolution mob, as though by appointment, frees this longtime CIA useful idiot from the police van taking him in. Addressing the crowd, as though in a Langley, Virginia, composed-prearranged action cartoon, or a Dick Tracy comic strip episode (the USA educated Saakashvili is actually a New York lawyer, a double joke) called Fly Face versus Mucous Face, mucous-faced Saakashvili demands the rapidly growing street mob march on fly-faced Poroshenko’s government.

Has the candy oligarch, Ukrainian President Fly Face, finally outlived his usefulness? Or is it former Georgia President, Mucous Face, has lost his last pretense of sanity? What will happen in next week’s episode?

And so, the soap opera that should be called ‘CIA Kiev Comedy Troupe‘ continues to astonish and entertain, sadly for the people of Ukraine.
