Barack Obama and John Kerry informed the Russian Federation that is was not okay to invade another country. There were only two major problems with their almost carbon copy statements. First of which, is that the United States has invaded over a dozen countries since 9/11 alone, so even if Russia had invaded Ukraine, the US is in no position to point their bloody finger at anyone. The second, is that Ukraine hasn’t been invaded (or at least not by Russia). The US has a standing policy of not giving financial aid to any regime which came to power by way of overthrowing the previously democratically elected government, but they never really follow those silly rules (as also proven by the Obama administration funding the Muslim Brotherhood before their downfall).

WHY THE UNITED STATES IS WRONG ABOUT CRIMEA

Take just these two examples from the United Kingdom alone. 1. Imagine how ridiculous people would have sounded if they had suggested that the whole of the UK should have been able to participate in a referendum on the decision on whether or not to allow the American colonies to secede. 2. Or imagine, in a more peaceful and contemporary comparison, how ridiculous people would sound if they suggest that Scotland needs to have all of the UK participate in a referendum along with them in order for the referendum to be valid. Those things are unheard of because they are clearly undemocratic (and ridiculous). Yet that is exactly what the US is saying to Russia and Crimea about the upcoming referendum; that Crimea has no right to secede, and that Crimea has no right to Democracy if it’s not Democracy under Washington’s benevolent thumb.

The Crimean government has already given the historical precedent of Kosovo breaking away from Yugoslavia as a comparison for them breaking away from Ukraine. Hell, even South Sudan broke off of Sudan. In both of those cases the US supported their breakaway. It’s clear that the ONLY reason the US opposes Crimea seceding from Ukraine and joining Russia, is because Crimea wants to secede and join Russia. The US misses the Cold War, and has let its nostalgia bubble up to the surface. Thus, a new Cold War emerges on the 16th of March. That is the date when this referendum will take place for the autonomous region of Crimea to decide whether to join the Russian Federation or stay a part of a new Fascist Ukraine. To most Americans following Western Mainstream media, it would seem as if Putin was re-enacting Hitler’s invasion of Poland by going into Ukraine. Hillary Clinton certainly didn’t waste any time making a Hitler/Putin comparison . It would seem Vlad has gone mad . However, these comparisons of Putin to Hitler are totally off base.

The United States also ignores all the blatant violence that their “peaceful protesters” are wrecking on Kiev when they set cars, buildings and even riot police on fire. The US attempts to act the part of just a casual observer encouraging gently from the sidelines for Ukraine to join the EU and NATO. They were even willing to point their finger at Putin for sharp shooters taking people out on both sides, when in reality, by all appearances it would seem that it was the new Kiev leaders who allowed such an operation to go forward . The US pretends like they didn’t just place a puppet as the new Prime Minister of Ukraine, yet how much more obvious could it be? When Victoria Nuland was caught saying that, “F*^# the EU” line, that was reported ad nauseam, the part that was underreported was that the guy who Nuland suggested was the best man to make the PM – is now the PM! Obama even had his new Ukranian Prime Minister puppet at the White House yesterday in a weak attempt to solidify the idea that Arseniy Yatsenyuk is somehow legitimate. Yet, all the Western Mainstream media seem to care about, is the shallow fact that Nuland cursed. It would seem the Democrats and the Neo-Cons are willing to set all of Ukraine on fire until they get their way; like a whining child demanding he get the whole box of candies.

WHY RUSSIA IS RIGHT (BUT DOESN’T REALLY WIN)

Well to explain the situation in Ukraine, I have to explain some history behind it. Several hundred years ago, Mother Russia was born, and it was born in no other, than what is now known as Kiev, Ukraine. In other words, Ukrainians are Russians at heart. Roughly 40% of the population in Ukraine is Russian speaking (and over 90% of Crimea is Russian speaking). The two countries are very culturally and historically attached. That being said, Putin did not invade Ukraine. Nor is he breaking some sort of international laws. Notice how the UN has remained pretty much quiet on the matter? The West is now just looking desperate, as both Britain and the US chose to boycott the opening of the Paralympics in Russia. They must have been so proud of how macho they were for boycotting disabled athletes; yet both countries were happy to stay in all of the Winter Olympics, and ultimately both are still competing in the Paralympics after their publicity stunt.

Spoiler Alert: Although I am not a fortune teller, I don’t need to be one to see that shortly after that vote takes place, Crimea will join the Russian Federation; it’s inevitable. It’s also what the people of Crimea want despite what MSNBC, FOX, ABC, CBS and CNN have been spouting. The simple truth is that Russia has a military deal with the government of Ukraine since 1991 to have 25,000 troops in its own various bases in Crimea. However now, with the recent attacks on Russians and Jews in Kiev and with the EU/US funded Neo-Nazi coupe, Putin has sent reinforcements to levels that are still apparently under the 25,000 troop maximum allowed. The Russians are also allowed several war ships, tanks and jets to be stationed in Crimea. In return, Russia gives Ukraine about $100 Million a year in rent, along with huge discounts for oil prices. On top of Russian troops, thousands of citizens of Crimea and the greater Ukraine have also created militias to defend themselves against violent Fascist mobs. This deal only covers Crimea, and well, the Russian troops are only in Crimea… so where is this Russian invasion led by Putin that the Western media has been pushing? The simple answer is, there has been no invasion by Russia. The invasion has been by the Neo-Nazis and Fascists that John Kerry just promised 1 Billion dollars to maybe next year Detroit, maybe not though). The invasion has been incited by Neo-Conservatives like Lindsey Graham who joined fellow war hawk John McCain in practically calling for war with Russia. Make no mistake; a new cold war has begun.

The main reason however, why Russia is getting the short end of the stick, is because while it gains little Crimea, it loses all of the greater Ukraine to complete Western control. Putin made a strategic decision to save Crimea from the clutches of EU membership, NATO control, Greece-like austerity and National Socialists, and he is able to do this because the vast majority of the Crimean population want it. Many in greater Ukraine actually want to join Russia as well, however Putin knows that would lead this crisis from being a proxy-war between the US and Russia (as also happened in Georgia and is still happening in Syria) to being a direct hot-war between the US and Russia. The US has too much invested on their side to just let it go, as does Russia; so ultimately Russia will recognize the new regime of Ukraine as legitimate, and in turn the US will recognize Crimea as being part of Russia. It may not happen this month, but it will happen, unless of course Russia and the US actually go to war, but that is unlikely as that would almost certainly escalate into WWIII (and then mutual destruction). Furthermore, the US has an official policy of not giving financial aid to any regime that came to power by way of overthrowing the previous government, but they never really follow that silly rule anyway , as the Russians pointed out. Ukraine also banned the Russian language as soon as they overthrew the legitimate President of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych, in an act of blatant Russo-phobia. One of their main leaders even said he’ll be fighting Jews and Russians till he dies . Yet the US supports these anti-Russian, anti-Semitic National Socialists; that’s why Mother Russia is on the right side of history here, but unfortunately still loses more than she gains.

HOW LIBERTARIANS AND GREENS MISSED OUT

The Ukrainian government gave Russia permission to be in Crimea, the fleeing President even asked for Russia’s assistance in the Neo-Nazi/Fascist take over, yet Russia is still seen as the aggressor. Well folks, the American Revolutionaries were right to have seceded from the UK, and the Crimeans are now right to leave Ukraine. Americans especially, should be able to empathize with the Crimean’s desire to leave one county’s rule. However, in the United States there have been only a few prominent defenders of liberty. The Libertarian Party should be backing Crimea’s right to self-determination (as well as Scotland’s bit to secede).

The Libertarian’s 1988 Presidential candidate and Libertarian icon Ron Paul, recently stated that Crimea had the right to join Russia and that Obama’s sanctions against Russia are criminal . Then, after an interview between Ron Paul and former RT reporter Liz Wahl (who by the way, went AWOL and quit RT on air that same day), Liz claimed Ron Paul was being censored by RT over Crimea when she went on CNN, Ron Paul however defended RT’s coverage of himself by saying, “I didn’t think it was slanted in any way. I thought what they reported was exactly what I said.” So again, the Libertarian Party missed another opportunity by not pointing out the blatant Western media distortion against Russian media. The Party should also be condemning Obama’s blatant meddling in Ukraine’s affairs and overthrowing the legitimate government and giving our tax dollars to Neo-Nazis and Fascists in Ukraine, all while also claiming the US economy is recovering. The Libertarian Party should be brave enough to say what needs to be said, and demand that Obama be impeached.

Even the Green Party missed an opportunity to condemn the new illegal Ukrainian regime after Neo-Nazis and their foot soldiers burnt thousands of tires, along with tens of thousands of Molotov Cocktails (many of which were mixed with Styrofoam and or other substances to stick to its victims when it burns). All that billowing black toxic smoke has made Kiev’s sky look like Beijings’. The Greens also stayed mum, when one of the radical Fascist parliament members in Ukraine warned Russia they might become another Nuclear Weapon Country due to Russia’s role in the situation . That there, would have been a beautiful opportunity to call for world nuclear disarmament, but apparently they got the same PR people working for them as the Libertarian Party does. If anything, this whole Ukrainian situation will push both parties to become bolder, and soon, but I won’t be holding my breath.

    I talked to Savva on the phone. We are both former residents of the USSR who left there as children. I didn’t get any inkling that he is some kind of mole. I don’t think Andy knows him, but he can correct me on that.

  2. Jill Pyeatt Post author

    Savva is along-time friend of mine. Please don’t start trouble, CLC.

  3. Jill Pyeatt Post author

    He is an excellent activist here in California, and accomplishes a lot for the liberty movement. What have you done lately, CLC?

  4. paulie

    BTW he is already approved to post articles. Hopefully he understood that he is not supposed to post his own opinions under our current rules, which I did explain.

    as if Putin isn’t a thug. So the argument goes why back one group of thugs against another?

    But, I personally believe, that Russia going into Crimea is going to have similar results to the UK putting troops into Northern Ireland…. Some hot heads are going to start shooting them… setting off bombs… use force and force will be the response that you get.

    Yes the US government needs to be reminded of this. The Russians military isn’t likely to be the good guys, neither is the Ukrainian army or any of the other thugs willing to use violence.

    All in all, I have a bad feeling about this mess.

  6. Jill Pyeatt Post author

    Yes, he does understand that we aren’t to post our own article, which is why I’ve posted this. I’m dismayed that the LP hasn’t spoken out about Ukraine, and I’m glad someone has done so.

  7. Steve M

    oh Crimea isn’t a monolithic culture… some will want to be part of Russia, some will want to stay part of Ukraine, some will want neither…. what ever decision they take there will be a lot of toes being stepped upon.

  8. Jill Pyeatt Post author

    “All in all, I have a bad feeling about this mess.”

    This mess has me absolutely terrified, especially when we have leaders like Rand Paul calling for us to get involved.

    I have never heard of this person.

  10. Steve M

    I am not terrified… I just think that who ever puts their nose in there is going to take a punch to their face… the real victims are going to be the regional civilians… plus the Russian and Ukrainian draftees.

    I think that the Russian economy is going to take a hit… also bad for the Russian population. If it lasts long enough Europe’s economy will take a hit too. And eventually even the US which means fewer jobs… and we all have friends that need jobs.

    Wars are not good for common folk. Just for the big war corporations…. and ding ding ding there are your winners and the people who most likely are pushing for these conflicts.

  11. Jill Pyeatt Post author

    I’m sure you can say interesting things, CLC, because you used to. Now you just say ridiculous things that don’t contribute at all. I don’t get it. Why do you do that? You’re a smart guy–why do you choose to just annoy?

    And that “God bless you” stuff you keep saying is disengenous when you go to the website of a mentally troubled man and say “Fuck PLAS Place”. What the heck was that supposed to accomplish? Do you enjoy irritating people, or what?

    An interesting article, though I feel the need to gently point out that someone who unironically uses the term “Mother Russia” is probably a touch biased. Of course, aren’t we all?

    In my experience, many Libertarians and libertarians seem to agree with the author. Personally I think we have no business getting involved, but I’m not quite ready to believe that Russia is an innocent victim in all of this. It seems most likely to me that some segments of the Ukrainian people had grievances against the government, and the EU and US took advantage of the situation to gain some more influence in an important region. Russia responded in an attempt to preserve as much of their influence as they could. Notice how the annexation of Crimea (Which I do agree is majority Russian and would in a free election vote to reunite with it) was not on anyone’s agenda for years until the recent setbacks? I have a suspicion that if the protests had gone the other way and overthrown a pro Western government, we’d be seeing some parts of the Ukraine wanting their own independence. Completely spontaneously, of course.

    Basically, I find this whole thing to be a nasty tug of war between the bigger kids on the playground, with Ukraine caught in the middle. Ideally we’d back no side. But I would also suggest that our backing of one side for our own selfish “national interests” does not necessarily indicate the other side’s intentions are 100% noble either. Looking at what is happening in Venezuela, I imagine the US government is probably offering under the table aid to the protesters there. Which strikes me as none of our business, but at the same time I don’t think many observers outside the far left would be all that fond of their current government and eager to rush to its defense.

    Or maybe I’m just a cynic.

  13. Root's Teeth Are Awesome

    I doubt that the “Nazis” in the Ukraine are any better or worse than the “Communists” — or even the “Capitalists” — in the Ukraine.

    Russia and its former territories are ruled by competing thugs and mafiosi and warlords, regardless of the labels they call themselves, or each other, by.

    I also doubt that anyone in America, even former immigrants, can have any clear idea of who the players in that region are, much less their secret backers, hidden agendas, or ulterior motives.

    I’m starting to think Rand Paul is a net-negative for libertarianisn. Many people associate him with us, so his sometimes terrible positions become associated with us.

    And Bob is not mentally troubled. He is trolling all of you into believing that.

    I guess he trolled the federal courts and mental health professionals into believing that as well.

    New Jersey Man Pleads Guilty To Harassing TV Anchorwoman
    AP , Associated Press
    Jun. 25, 1985 8:13 AM ET

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ A man who pleaded guilty to a charge of sending threatening letters to a television anchorwoman must undergo psychiatric treatment as part of a plea bargain agreement, a prosecutor says.

    Robert Milnes, 32, of Camden, N.J., entered the plea Friday before U.S. District Judge James Giles. The charge involved more than 50 harassing and threatening letters sent to WCAU-TV news anchor Deborah Knapp and her family.

    Assistant U.S. Attorney Judy Goldstein-Smith said the plea bargain would require Milnes to serve five years’ probation. During that time, he would have to undergo psychiatric treatment and stay away from Knapp, her family, the station’s news studios and Montgomery County, where Knapp lives, said Ms. Goldstein-Smith.

    The judge will decide within four weeks whether to accept the plea bargain, Ms. Goldstein-Smith said. The charge carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $1,000 fine.

    Milnes was charged with mailing dozens of letters, many of them sexually explicit, to Knapp over the past two years. He was also accused of impersonating a newspaper reporter in telephone calls to her husband, New York television producer Henry Bonilla, and harassing her parents with bizarre calls.

    Milnes was arrested at the station March 26 after warning Knapp’s parents in a telephone call several days earlier that he would visit the studio and that the visit ”wouldn’t be good,” according to an FBI affidavit.

    ”I think he’s in need of psychiatric help,” the defendant’s father, Robert E. Milnes, said at a later hearing, ”but I don’t see any threat to society. Obviously, he’s in love with Deborah Knapp. He’s obsessed.”

    Please take any further discussion of Milnes to the thread(s) dedicated to him.

    No, you are exactly correct. But it’s true that there are nasty nazi elements in the new Ukrainian government who have banned the Russian language (which is actually the only language universally spoken by everyone in Ukraine, the only language spoken by a significant minority of the population and a large majority in some parts of the country). It’s true that they have made threatening statements towards Russians, Jews and other non-Ukrainians and have glorified nazi collaborators from the WWII era.

    Mind you, I’m not a Putin fan and I don’t like some of the recent moves towards authoritarianism in Russia.

    You may be right. He is a mixed bag.

    In that regard, he is a relatively minor problem, as many people associate Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz and the like with us while others think we are the “liberal” party (in the non-classical sense).

    Even the players themselves have only a partial picture. And USA, EU should butt out.

    I couldn’t believe Rand Paul’s statement last weekend about how Obama should act toward the situation in the Ukraine. It erased any gains he made last year during his filibuster, in my opinion. He is so inconsistent in his views. At least we can count on him publicly saying that he’s not a Libertarian, as he does every so often.

    “I’m starting to think Rand Paul is a net-negative for libertarianisn. Many people associate him with us, so his sometimes terrible positions become associated with us.”

    Heh. I started that a long time ago. I guess I was a Rand-hater before it was cool. I’ve lost a lot of friends trying to warn that he is NOT a libertarian. Just like I lost friends on Mark Sanford. *sigh* Libertarians are easily duped by Republicans. It’s depressing.

    Thankfully, Gary Johnson was on The Independents and trounced so-called “libertarian Republicans” in congress as social conservatives. I would argue most are also interventionists, but it was good to hear someone from our party call out the media for lumping Rand Paul & Ted Cruz in with libertarianism.

    And in other Rand Paul news, he has apparently voted for a bill to have the feds crack down on marijuana in states which have legalized it, according to comments I saw on facebook.

  24. Electoral Watch

    Senator Paul voted against the Russian sanctions bill in committee. He offered some amendments which failed; such as cutting foreign aid to Russia, and refusing to guarantee an IMF loan to the neonazi regime in Ukraine.

    Has Gary Johnson ever said anything about the IMF? Did he ever renonunce his KONY2012 support for an illegal war on Uganda?

    And in other Rand Paul news, he has apparently voted for a bill to have the feds crack down on marijuana in states which have legalized it, according to comments I saw on facebook.”

    This is not entirely true. Rand voted yes on a bill called The Enforce the Law Act. The law is intended to have the President enforce laws that are on the books, as the name of the bill implies.

    One unintended consequence of the bill could potentially be that it could have the White House cracking down on marijuana in the states that have legalized it, however, this was not the point of the bill, and also, one could argue that federal marijuana laws are all unconstitutional, so these laws should not even been on the books.
