31 March 2014 ~ Second Update
 
 
Ukraine Crisis: Russia 'withdrawing troops from border' - Putin tells Merkel ~ link ~ The number being withdrawn is only about 500, but it is a first step.  We really don't know the details of the real negotiations, just the PR that both sides are feeding to the press.   Stirling   
 
Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, told German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday that he has ordered a partial withdrawal of troops from the Ukrainian border.

During a telephone call the pair agreed to cooperate on possible steps to “restore stability” in Ukraine, and also discussed the breakaway Moldovan region of Transdniestria. 



Putin pulls a battalin from the border ~ link ~ Russia pulled back a battalion from along the Ukrainian border today after sending its prime minister to shower promises on Crimea, pledging quick funds to improve power supplies, water lines and education on its newly annexed peninsula.

One battalion - about 500 troops - that had been sent to the Rostov region next to Ukraine was being withdrawn to its permanent base in the central Samara region, Russian news agencies quoted the Defence Ministry as saying.



PM Dmitry Medvedev visits Crimea as Russia's Army begins border withdrawal ~ link ~ Russia flaunted its grip on Crimea on Monday, with the prime minister, Dmitry Medvedev, flying in to the newly annexed territory for a cabinet meeting, cementing the sense of resignation in Kiev and the west that the seizure of the territory is irreversible.

The developments came after a four-hour meeting on Sunday between the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, and the US secretary of state, John Kerry, in which both sides put their visions for resolving the Ukraine crisis on the table. After the meeting in Pairs, Lavrov said Ukraine should introduce federalisation of power.



Russian Prime Minister Medvedev angers Ukrainian Coup Government by visiting the Crimea ~ link ~ Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev flaunted Russia's grip on Crimea by flying to the region and holding a government meeting there on Monday, angering Ukraine and defying Western demands to hand the peninsula back to Kiev.

But in a gesture that could ease tension in the worst East-West stand-off since the Cold War, Russia pulled some troops back from near Ukraine's eastern frontier - a move which the United States said would be a positive sign if it is confirmed as a withdrawal.



US not talking about its role in the Ukraine coup ~ link ~  
Last week US Congress overwhelmingly passed a bill approving a billion dollars in aid to Ukraine and more sanctions on Russia. The bill will likely receive the president’s signature within days. If you think this is the last time US citizens will have their money sent to Ukraine, you should think again. This is only the beginning.

This $1 billion for Ukraine is a rip-off for the America taxpayer, but it is also a bad deal for Ukrainians. Not a single needy Ukrainian will see a penny of this money, as it will be used to bail out international banks who hold Ukrainian government debt. According to the terms of the International Monetary Fund (IMF)-designed plan for Ukraine, life is about to get much more difficult for average Ukrainians. The government will freeze some wage increases, significantly raise taxes, and increase energy prices by a considerable margin.

But the bankers will get paid and the IMF will get control over the Ukrainian economy.

Freelance journalist: Hijacked Flight MH370 passenger sent photo from hidden iPhone tracing back to Diego Garcia ~ link ~ If this is true, there was an intention to use the Boeing 777 in a False Flag Attack, but something went wrong!  Stirling
 
According to freelance journalist Jim Stone, one of the American passengers, Phillip Wood, a technical storage executive at IBM, who was aboard the now missing Malaysian Airlines flight, keystered his iPhone 5 in his anus after the Boeing 777 carrying 239 people was hijacked by military personnel while on route to China.
Amazingly, Stone claims that metadata within the photo yields evidence confirming “100 percent” that Phillip Wood sent the photo, along with a brief voice activated text, from GPS coordinates which put Wood only a few miles away from the U.S. controlled Diego Garcia military base which is located on an island south of the Maldives in the Indian Ocean. In his post Stone claims that the coordinates may be off by a few miles (see update below post), proving that the iPhone actually sent the otherwise blank black picture revealing nothing else. Stone speculates the picture was taken in a dark room or in some position in which Wood’s hands were bound.
 
 
Scale of Guinea's Ebola epidemic unprecedented says aid agency ~ link ~ Guinea faces an Ebola epidemic on an unprecedented scale as it battles to contain confirmed cases now scattered across several locations that are far apart, medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres said on Monday.  

The warning from an organization used to tackling Ebola in Central Africa comes after Guinea's president appealed for calm as the number of deaths linked to an outbreak on the border with Liberia and Sierra Leone hit 80.



Ebola death toll hits 82 ~ link ~ Also see ~ link ~ and ~ link ~ and ~ link ~ New cases confirmed as virus that kills 90 per cent of infected people spreads from Guinea to Liberia with suspected cases in Sierra Leone 

An outbreak of Ebola haemorrhagic fever that doctors on Monday described as "unprecedented" has spread to three countries in West Africa and threatens to become one of the deadliest in years.



French President Hollande appoints new Prime Minister ~ link ~ Hollande announced the appointment in a televised speech on Monday. He decided to axe current Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault after his Socialist Party lost more than 150 towns and cities in municipal elections.

Experts say a stagnant economy, high unemployment and falling living standards in France are the main reasons behind the Socialists' lackluster performance in the vote.

As this weekend ends and the new week begins, we seem to be at a critical point in the Ukraine Crisis.  The 'West' is saying that Russia has 40,000 troops massed on the Ukraine border...some say the number is 50,000...and some say 60,000 is the number...the Ukrainian Coup Government says 100,000...outside sources say that there is no troop build-up...which is what the Russians are saying, that their troops have returned to their barracks from the recent large war games...however, Russia is having a Nuclear War Drill on-going now. This is a very serious crisis with many twists and turns.  If we 'step back from the trees and look at the forest' we will see that the world's nuclear powers are increasingly looking like being in a pre-war/war-could-be-imminent geopolitical environment. That is not a good place for the entire world to be at.

Russia sets the terms for a Ukraine deal as 40,000 troops mass on the border ~ link ~ And Russian nuclear forces are engaged in a large first-strike nuclear war game!!!  Stirling    
 
Russia on Sunday night repeated its demand that the US and its European partners accept its proposal that ethnic Russian regions of eastern and southern Ukraine be given extensive autonomous powers independent of Kiev as a condition for agreeing a diplomatic solution to the crisis over its annexation of Crimea
 
The meeting took place against an ominous backdrop of the gathering of an estimated 40,000 Russian troops on Ukraine's eastern border, and warnings from Nato and the Pentagon that the Russian military activity, ostensibly relating to routine exercises, was abnormal and could be a prelude to an invasion.



Ukraine Paris Talks: American Government and Russian Government FAIL TO REACH A DEAL TO AVOID WAR ~ link ~ This has the feeling of 'History in the Making' and the feeling is NOT a good one!!!  Stirling   


The Kerry-Lavrov meeting in Paris came days before Nato foreign ministers meet in Brussels on Tuesday and Wednesday that is likely to focus on Ukraine and Russia's actions.

America's top general in Europe has been sent back early from a trip to Washington in what the Pentagon on Sunday called a prudent step given Russia's "lack of transparency" about troop movements across the border with Ukraine.
General Philip Breedlove, who is both Natos's Supreme Allied Commander Europe and the head of the US military's European Command, arrived in Europe on Saturday evening. He had been due to testify before Congress this week.

Russia's Military Begins a NUCLEAR WAR Drill ~ link ~ While much Western attention has been bestowed on Russia’s military buildup near Ukraine, Moscow also began a massive nuclear offensive exercise on Thursday.

According to the Russian daily Nezavisimaya Gazeta, on Thursday Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces began a massive three-day exercise involving 10,000 soldiers and 1,000 pieces of equipment from more than 30 units. The major purpose of the drill, according to the report—which cites multiple senior Russian military officers—is to ensure Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces have sufficient readiness to conduct offensive operations involving the massive and simultaneous use of nuclear missiles.

Global Security Newswire previously carried a story on the nuclear exercise, also citing the Nezavisimaya Gazeta article. GSN described the exercise as “as practice for a large-scale nuclear offensive.” It added: “Exercise participants were set to position and prepare missile-firing units for launch, and to practice various administrative and support functions for the operation.
 
 
 
Russian FM Lavrov: If West accepts coup-appointed Kiev government, it must accept a Russian Crimea - with video ~ link ~ The West is inconsistent in not recognizing the Crimea referendum as legitimate, while recognizing the military coup in Kiev, Russian FM Sergey Lavrov said. He accused the EU and US of duplicity and described sanctions as a “dead-end track.”
If the West accepts Kiev’s coup-appointed government then it must, in turn, accept the legitimacy of Crimea’s referendum to join with Russia, Lavrov told Irada Zeinalova, the host of the “Sunday Time” analytical program on Russia’s Channel One TV. 



NBC News: Tour of the Ukraine-Russia Border finds NO Signs of a Military Buildup ~ link ~ You mean the Zionist/Globalist mainstream news media has LIED to us...What else is new...NOT!   Stirling   

According to dire warnings from U.S. military and intelligence officials, Russian President Vladimir Putin, fresh from his daring annexation of Ukraine’s strategic Crimean Peninsula, has concentrated tens of thousands of his forces on the border with Ukraine. Camouflaged and concealed to throw off U.S. spy satellites, the warnings say, the heavily armed combat troops and special operations forces are coiled and ready to spring across the border into restive regions of Eastern and Southern Ukraine such as Kharkov and Donetsk, where pro-Russian populations are eager to be annexed by Russia, just like Crimea.

Top Russian officials – including Putin himself – have denied any such troop concentrations near the Western border. One minor Ministry of Defense official, who didn’t want to be named because he wasn’t authorized to comment, told NBC News that there had been training exercises – war games – in the border region but, once ended, those troops and armor returned to their bases. “All of this international hype is completely unfounded,” he told us earlier in the week.



US Sec. of State Kerry says that Russia is creating fear and intimidation in the Ukraine ~ link ~ Sounds like today's meeting between Kerry and Lavrov did not go well!!!   Stirling   

Kerry spoke after meeting Sunday night in Paris with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and said he told the diplomat that Ukrainians must be allowed to decide their own future. 
 


Ukrainian nationalists attack anti-coup motor rally with hammers and bats ~ link ~ The population of Southeastern Ukraine, expressing their discontent with the current government in Kiev are facing increasingly violent intimidation. A recent anti-Maidan motor rally in Zaporozhye was attacked by ‘self-defense’ nationalist thugs.

Fighters from the local Maidan self-defense nationalist squad blocked and attacked a column of cars bearing Russian, regional and Ukrainian flags that was heading from a neighboring town of Melitopol to join an anti-government rally in Zaporozhye last week.

The anti-Maidan activists gathered on Lenin Square to rally for Ukraine joining the Customs Union and to protect the Russian language in the region, an activist from Melitopol, Ekaterina Umonets told RT. To support their cause, some 15 cars and two mini-buses, left Meritopol to join the protest movement in Zaporozhye, a city of over 750,000 people. 



'Against democratic principles': EU's Baroness
Ashton denounces nationalists' pressure on Ukraine Parliament
~ link ~ Is the Baroness finally fed up with the fascists in the Coup Government or is this part of a Zionist/Globalists plot to get rid of the fascists as no longer needed 'useful idiots'???   Stirling  


The lawless actions of Ukraine's nationalists have finally caught attention of the intl community, with EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton denouncing Right Sector for its ‘pressure’ and ‘undemocratic’ demand of the interior minister’s resignation.

A day after neo-Nazi activists who helped bring the acting government in Kiev to power turned against it, Ashton has issued a statement condemning the “pressure by activists of the Right Sector who have surrounded the building of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.”

This “intimidation” the EU foreign policy chief believes, stands against all “democratic principles and rule of law,” as Ashton called on the ultra-right group “to refrain from the use or threat of violence.”   



IMF's $18 Billion loan to the Ukraine is it a Cash Injection or an Infection? - video ~ link ~ Based on the history of the IMF, I would clearly say it is an Infection of the worst type!  Stirling  



"They never learn" - Russia's Take on the 'West' and the shifting Geopolitical Balance of Power ~ link ~ Over the past month, there has been a lot of "Hilsenrathing", or the biased media urgently "explaining" to the Western world, just what Russia's actions mean both tactically in response to Ukraine developments, and strategically as part of Putin's global perspective. So instead of relying on the broken media narrative which serves merely to perpetuate US corporate interests and rally the public behind this or that company's geopolitical interests, here, straight from the horse's mouth, in this case Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov, how Russia sees itself in a world in which it is allegedly "isolated", and "threatening Ukraine" with further invasion but more importantly, how the Russians view the rapidly changing global balance of power, in which post-USSR Russia has emerged from the backwood of slighted nations and stormed to the stage of nations who dare defy the former global hegemon, the US. 

We were promised that NATO would not bring its military infrastructure closer to our borders – and we were cheated. We were promised there would be no military installations on the territory of the new NATO members. At first, we just listened to those promises and believed them. Then we started putting them on paper as political obligations, and serious people, Western leaders, signed those documents. But when we asked them how come those political obligations were ignored and whether we can make them legally binding, they told us, “No, political obligations are enough, and anyway, don’t worry, whatever we do is not against you.”  



Have we reached Peak Putin? ~ link ~ link ~ Good article.  I am not sure I agree with the conclusions, but a good article nevertheless.   Stirling    



In call with Obama, Putin states that extremists in Kyiv are 'intimidating people with impunity' ~ link Vladimir Putin drew Barack Obama’s attention to continued rampage of extremists who are committing acts of intimidation towards peaceful residents, government authorities and law enforcement agencies in various regions and in Kiev with impunity.

In light of this, the President of Russia suggested examining possible steps the global community can take to help stabilise the situation. The two presidents agreed that specific parameters for this joint work will be discussed by the Russian and US foreign ministers in the near future.



US military in no shape to face the grandsons of the Red Army ~ link ~ I am not totally so sure that I agree with this article, however, it makes some good points.  The American Army is battle tested and has been over the last almost three decades, whereas the Russian Army has only fought once recently in Georgia.  Still the US Armed Forces are tired and way overstretched.  Stirling    
The West is suffering from a bad case of Cold War chills.

Not only are the Western powers worried, they are discovering that they likely lack the means to stop possible Russian incursions into what was the former Soviet Empire.

They should not be at all surprised that Russia is again showing signs of life.




Pushing Toward The Final War - Paul Craig Roberts ~ link ~ I disagree with this article because it ignores the power of the global bankers who worked behind the scenes for years to create the alliances and conditions that led to the world wars.  In fact, the assassination of the Austrian Archduke and his wife, the 'spark' that caused the First World War, was organized and controlled by Trotsky, a key Rothschild agent!!!  The same forces are at work in the Ukraine and Middle East today!!!   Stirling      
 
Does Obama realize that he is leading the US and its puppet states to war with Russia and China, or is Obama being manipulated into this disaster by his neoconservative speech writers and government officials? World War 1 (and World War 2) was the result of the ambitions and mistakes of a very small number of people. Only one head of state was actually involved–the President of France.

In The genesis Of The World War, Harry Elmer Barnes shows that World War 1 was the product of 4 or 5 people. Three stand out: Raymond Poincare`, President of France, Sergei Sazonov, Russian Foreign Minister, and Alexander Izvolski, Russian Ambassador to France. Poincare` wanted Alsace-Lorraine from Germany, and the Russians wanted Istanbul and the Bosphorus Strait, which connects the Black Sea to the Mediterranean. They realized that their ambitions required a general European war and worked to produce the desired war.
