6. Yugoslavia was a model for the future world. Nothing commie about putting people over war profits.

...and the place had people of different ethnicities and religions and political systems living and working together -- in peace with prosperity for all.

Thank you for those outstanding articles and links to discussion, nationalize the fed. This PNAC crew aims to balkanize Russia. Joe's kid is financing at the front for fracking in the Ukraine.

Redrawing the Map of the Russian Federation: Partitioning Russia After World War III?

By Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya
Global Research, September 10, 2014
Strategic Culture Foundation 10 September 2014


Dmytro Sinchenko published an article on September 8, 2014 about dividing Russia. His article is titled «Waiting for World War III: How the World Will Change». [3] Sinchenko was involved in EuroMaidan and his organization, the Ukrainian Initiative «Statesmen Movement» (Всеукраїнської ініціативи «Рух державотворців»), advocates for an ethnic nationalism, the territorial expansion of Ukraine at the expense of most the bordering countries, reinvigorating the pro-US Georgia-Ukraine-Azerbaijan-Moldova (GUAM) Organization for Democracy and Economic Development, joining NATO, and launching an offensive to defeat Russia as part of its foreign policy goals. [4] As a note, the inclusion of the word democracy in GUAM should not fool anyone; GUAM, as the inclusion of the Republic of Azerbaijan proves, has nothing to do with democracy, but with counter-balancing Russia in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).

Sinchenko’s article starts by talking about the history of the «Axis of Evil» phrase that the US has used to vilify its enemies. It talks about how George W. Bush Jr. coined the phrase in 2002 by grouping Iraq, Iran, and North Korea together, how John Bolton expanded the Axis of Evil to include Cuba, Libya, and Syria, how Condoleezza Rice included Belarus, Zimbabwe, and Myanmar (Burma), and then finally he proposes that Russia be added to the list as the world’s main pariah state. He even argues that the Kremlin is involved in all the conflicts in the Balkans, Caucasus, Middle East, North Africa, Ukraine, and Southeast Asia. He goes on to accuse Russia of planning to invade the Baltic States, the Caucasus, Moldova, Finland, Poland, and, even more ridiculously, two of its own close military and political allies, Belarus and Kazakhstan. As the article’s title implies, he even claims that Moscow is intentionally pushing for a third world war.

This fiction is not something that has been reported in the US-aligned corporate networks, but is something that has been published directly by US government-owned media. The forecast was published by the Ukrainian service of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, which has been a US propaganda tool in Europe and the Middle East that has helped topple governments.

Chillingly, the article tries to sanitize the possibilities of a new world war. Disgustingly ignoring the use of nuclear weapons and the massive destruction that would erupt for Ukraine and the world, the article misleadingly paints a cozy image of a world that will be corrected by a major global war. Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty and the author are essentially saying that «war is good for you» to the Ukrainian people and that some type of utopian paradise will emerge after a war with Russia.



BFEE believe they can survive World War III. The rest of us locked outside of the secure, undisclosed location not so much.

International Law? Octafish Mar 2015 #148
International law didn't stop Russia from invading Ukraine either. NuclearDem Mar 2015 #152
Why waste my time trying to teach you what you don't want to know? Octafish Mar 2015 #155
So to sum up your "lesson"... NuclearDem Mar 2015 #156
Glad you got something out of it. Here's some of what you missed: Octafish Mar 2015 #192
I'm sorry, Prescott Bush has something to do with Putin's war of aggression...how? NuclearDem Mar 2015 #193
It's because he's trying to fool Lloyd Braun! nt Tommy_Carcetti Mar 2015 #194
Prescott's ancestors are still on the Bridge of the Ship of State, making Big Bucks off War. Octafish Mar 2015 #197
I'll ask again: NuclearDem Mar 2015 #198
His son, George Herbert Walker Bush, and grandson, George Walker Bush, both lied America into war. Octafish Mar 2015 #199
So, of course then President Obama paid $5 billlion in 2014 for a "coup" in Ukraine! Tommy_Carcetti Mar 2015 #200
Focusing on $5 billion diverts attention from the point: Wars for Profit. Octafish Mar 2015 #205
The $5 billion figure was important enough for Pilger to lie about. Tommy_Carcetti Mar 2015 #206
Pilger is accurate, which is why you have to smear him. Octafish Mar 2015 #207
But you yourself admit he's not accurate. See Post 174. Tommy_Carcetti Mar 2015 #233
Because secret government is secret? Ask PNAC Robert Kagan's wife, Victoria Nuland. Octafish Mar 2015 #273
You've got her name wrong. Tommy_Carcetti Mar 2015 #293
Why do you spread disinformation, Tommy_Carcetti? Is it some sort of sick game for you? Octafish Mar 2015 #298
Someone clearly hasn't been reading all the responses to his own posts here. nt Tommy_Carcetti Mar 2015 #299
You want to make me out as some kind of asshole, Tommy_Carcetti of DU? Octafish Mar 2015 #300
What I can hang on you, Octafish, is that you posted a piece with blatant misinformation. Tommy_Carcetti Mar 2015 #301
What disinformation did I post? Where I said you posted her name wrong when you didn't? Octafish Mar 2015 #303
See post 53. nt Tommy_Carcetti Mar 2015 #305
Time Waster. Octafish Mar 2015 #307

As an example of Pilger's dishonesty, here's Garton-Ash's piece muriel_volestrangler Mar 2015 #237
The PNAC guy? Octafish Mar 2015 #239
No, not a PNAC guy muriel_volestrangler Mar 2015 #241
Which makes him out to be PNAC chums with Robert Kagan, husband, coincidentally, of Victoria Nuland. Octafish Mar 2015 #243
No, it doesn't make him a 'chum' muriel_volestrangler Mar 2015 #245
PNAC is attempting to force US into arming Ukraine in a hoped-for war with Russia. Octafish Mar 2015 #247
I pointed out you made up that he is a 'chum' of Kagan muriel_volestrangler Mar 2015 #249
PNAC ''Chums'' is a bad word on my part. Sorry. PNAC "Co-conspirators" would be more accurate. Octafish Mar 2015 #252
A "Liberal Interventionist" who believes in Global Stability? KoKo Mar 2015 #254
PNAC, like Banksters, are Buy Partisan...co-incidentally, of course. Octafish Mar 2015 #259
Not in favour of intervention in all cases muriel_volestrangler Mar 2015 #282
