To Put Into War?





The sort of recreational drug favored by Satan over Marijuana and Vin Coca Mariani






http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_III_Sobieski

John III Sobieski (Polish: Jan III Sobieski, Lithuanian: Jonas Sobieskis; 17 August 1629 – 17 June 1696) was one of the most notable monarchs of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth, from 1674 until his death King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania.

Sobieski's 22-year-reign was marked by a period of the Commonwealth's stabilization, much needed after the turmoil of the Deluge and Khmelnytsky Uprising.[1] Popular among his subjects, he was an able military commander, most famous for the victory over the Turks in the 1683 Battle of Vienna.[2] Following his victories over the Ottoman Empire, he was called by the Turks the "Lion of Lechistan" and held as the saviour of European Christendom by the pope.[3]

John Sobieski was born on 17 August 1629 in Olesko, a small town near Lwów in Galicia, now Ukraine, then part of the Ruthenian Voivodeship in the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland, Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth to a notable noble family de Sobieszyn Sobieski of Janina coat of arms.[4][5] His father, Jakub Sobieski, was the Voivode of Ruthenia and Castellan of Kraków; his mother, Zofia Teofillia Daniłowicz was a granddaughter of Hetman Stanisław Żółkiewski.[5] John Sobieski spent his childhood in Żółkwia.[5] After graduating from the Nowodworski College in Kraków in 1643, young John Sobieski then graduated from the philosophical faculty of the Jagiellonian University in 1646.[5][6] After finishing his studies, together with his brother Marek Sobieski, John left for western Europe, where he spent more than two years travelling.[5][7] They visited Leipzig, Antwerp, Paris, London, Leiden and Hague.[5] During that time he met influential contemporary figures such as Louis II de Bourbon, Charles II of England and William II, Prince of Orange, and learnt French, German and Italian, in addition to Latin.[8]

Both brothers returned to the Commonwealth in 1648, upon receiving the news of the death of king Władysław IV Waza and the hostilities of the Khmelnytsky Uprising, volunteered for the army.[5][9] They both fought in the siege of Zamość.[5] They founded and commanded their own banners (chorągiew) of cavalry (one light, "cossack", and one heavy, of Polish hussars).[5] Soon the fortunes of war separated the brothers. In 1649 Jakub fought in the Battle of Zboriv.[5] In 1652 Marek died in Tatar captivity after his capture at the Battle of Batoh.[5][10] John was promoted to the rank of pułkownik and fought with distinction in the Battle of Berestechko.[11] A promising commander, John was sent by King John II Casimir to Istanbul in the Ottoman Empire as one of the envoys in a diplomatic mission of Mikołaj Bieganowski.[5][12] There, Sobieski learnt the Tatar language and the Turkish language and studied Turkish military traditions and tactics.[5][12] It is likely he participated as part of the briefly allied Polish-Tatar forces in the 1655 Battle of Okhmativ.[5]

After the start of the Swedish invasion of Poland known as "The Deluge", John Sobieski was among the Greater Polish regiments led by Krzysztof Opaliński, Palatine of Poznań which capitulated at Ujście, and swore allegiance to King Charles X Gustav of Sweden.[5][12] However, around late March 1656 he abandoned their side, returning to the side of Polish king Jan Kazimierz Waza, enlisting under the command of hetmans Stefan Czarniecki and Jerzy Sebastian Lubomirski.[5]

During the three-day long battle of Warsaw of 1656, Sobieski's command of a 2,000-man strong regiment of Tatar cavalry earnt him promotion to the title of Lord Standard-Bearer of the Crown.[14] A strong supporter of the French faction, Sobieski remained loyal to the King during the infamous Lubomirski Rebellion, which further helped his military career. In 1665 he married Marie Casimire Louise de la Grange d'Arquien and was promoted to the rank of Grand Marshal of the Crown, and the following year, to the rank of Field Hetman of the Crown.[4] In 1667 he achieved another great victory over the Cossacks and their Tatar allies in the Battle of Podhajce during the Polish–Cossack–Tatar War (1666–71).[12] On 5 February 1668, by now a famed and esteemed commander, he achieved the rank of Grand Hetman of the Crown, the highest military rank in the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth, and thereby the de facto commander-in-chief of the entire Polish Army.[12]

On 11 November 1673, during the Polish–Ottoman War (1672–76), Sobieski added yet another major victory to his list, this time defeating the Turks in the battle of Chocim and capturing the fortress located there.[12] The news of the battle coincided with the news of the death of Michael I, King of Poland, who had died the day before the battle.[12] This made Sobieski one of the most leading figures in the state, and on 19 May the following year, he was elected as monarch of the Commonwealth.[4] His candidacy was almost universally supported, with only a dozen or so members of the diet opposing him. Among the most notable backers of his candidacy was his wife. Jan Sobieski was crowned Jan III 2 February 1676.[4]

Though Poland-Lithuania was at that time the largest and one of the most populous states of Europe, Sobieski became a king of a country devastated by almost half a century of constant war. The treasury was almost empty and the court had little to offer the powerful magnates, who often allied themselves with foreign courts rather than the state. Sobieski decided to stabilise the situation by forcing the Ottomans to accept a peace treaty to end the constant wars on the southern border. In the autumn of 1674 he recommenced the war against the Turks and managed to recapture the fortresses of Kamieniec Podolski, Bar and Reszków, which re-established a strongly fortified line defending Poland's southern border in the Ukraine.[15] Polish historian Oskar Halecki and others noted, that Sobieski also planned to conquer Prussia with Swedish troops and French support.[16] This secret pact, later exposed, failed because the war with Turkey took too long, by which time the Great Elector had made treaties with France, the Swedes had been repelled, and by increased opposition from the Commonwealth's magnates, with many of them on the Great Elector's side. Sobieski's plan was also hurt by Michał Pac, the hetman of Lithuania and a supporter of Brandenburg, who simply defected with his army and then disbanded it.

In 1676 the Tatars began a counter-offensive and crossed the Dneper, but could not retake the strategic town of Żórawno, and the peace treaty was signed soon afterwards. Although Kamieniec Podolski remained a part of Turkey, Poland counteracted its significance with the construction of the Stronghold of the Holy Trinity and return of the town of Bila Tserkva. The signing of the treaty began a period of peace that was much needed for the repair the country and strengthening of the royal authority. Although constantly hampered by the magnates and foreign courts of Brandenburg and Austria (Austria even tried to oust Sobieski and replace him with Charles of Lorraine), Sobieski managed to completely reform the Polish army.[16] The military was reorganised into regiments, the infantry finally dropped pikes replacing them with battle-axes, and the Polish cavalry adopted hussars and dragoons formations.[17] Sobieski also greatly increased the number of guns and introduced new artillery tactics.[17]

As a diplomat, Sobieski envisioned an alliance with France and the Ottomans against the Austrian empire and Brandenburg.[16] However, his plans never eventuated and finally, in 1683, had to be completely abandoned. Conscious that Poland lacked allies and risked war against most of its neighbours (similar to the Deluge), Sobieski allied himself with Leopold I, of the Holy Roman Empire. The alliance, although aimed directly against Turks and indirectly against France, had the advantage of gaining support for the defence of Poland's southern borders.

In the spring of 1683 royal spies uncovered Turkish preparations for a military campaign, and Sobieski feared that the target might be the Polish cities of Lviv and Kraków.[12] To counteract the threat, Sobieski began the fortification of the cities and ordered universal military conscription.[12]
Sobieski's military skill demonstrated in war against the Ottoman Empire contributed to his prowess as King of Poland. One of his ambitions was to unify Christian Europe in a crusade to drive the Turks out of Europe. He joined the alliance of the Holy Roman Emperor and joined the Holy League initiated by Pope Innocent XI to preserve Christendom. The Alliance was unusual in that a number of Protestants, from Germany and even the son of Prince Rupert of the Stuarts fought.

Sobieski's greatest success came in 1683 with his victory at the Battle of Vienna, in joint command of Polish, Austrian and German troops, against the invading Turks under Kara Mustafa.
Upon reaching Vienna, Sobieski had planned to attack on 13 September, but with the Turkish army close to breaching the walls he ordered a full attack on 12 September. At 04:00 the united army of about 81,000 men attacked a Turkish force of about 130,000 men. At about five o'clock in the afternoon, after observing the infantry battle from the hilltop, Sobieski led Polish husaria cavalry along with Austrians and Germans into a massive charge down the hillside. Soon, the Turkish battle line was broken and the Ottoman forces scattered in confusion. At 17:30 Sobieski entered the deserted tent of Kara Mustafa and the battle of Vienna ended.

The Pope and other foreign dignitaries hailed Sobieski as the "Savior of Vienna and Western European civilization."[18] In a letter to his wife he wrote, "All the common people kissed my hands, my feet, my clothes; others only touched me, saying: 'Ah, let us kiss so valiant a hand!'"[19]

Later years

King John III Sobieski died in Wilanów, Poland on 17 June 1696. His wife, Maria Kasimira, died in 1716 in Blois, France, and her body was returned to Poland. They are interred together in Wawel Cathedral, Kraków, Poland.

King John III was succeeded by Augustus II who stayed in power primarily because of Russian support. On his death in 1733, a struggle for the crown of Poland ensued, referred to as the War of the Polish Succession.

Ukraine To Scrap The Criminal Curzon Line?


A news video from Moscow expressing their fear- belaying their guilt that the new pro US government of Ukraine shall reverse Stalin's illegal and criminal Curzon line border (the equivalent of the criminal Oder-Neisse line) that Russian led U.S.S.R. invaded September 17, 1939

Hobby Lobby Dupes of Rome



"Hobby Lobby" recently made the news for their opposition to Obama care regulations mandating workers' insurance that covers morning after pills; it is owned by the Green family, described as conservative Christians.  Asides from the issue of health insurance or its inclusion of contraception which can inexpensively be purchased at any pharmacy asides, they claim to oppose morning after pills out of their opposition to abortion.  Yet they are factually erroneous, the morning after pills are contraceptives - they block fertilization, while the Green family is PRO Rome, recently visiting the Vatican.  Might we be better off considering them to be dupes that fail to see the evils of the Vatican, including its trickery regarding abortion- claiming to oppose it while actually working to make it more widespread and popular.  Considering the sheer reality that there is more sex than instances of necessity for conceiving a child, the Vatican's opposition to contraception amounts to an increased reliance upon abortion with the dynamics of either extreme leading to a lesser concern over the most barbaric forms of abortion available up to the final trimester, particularly with the mass murder of sex selection abortion.

Brandies Slum of the Mind

too politically correct to allow critic of religion known for its draconian repression of women and people in general

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/04/09/brandeis-university-withdraws-planned-honorary-degree-for-islam-critic-ayaan/


Brandies U was going to present an honory degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a staunch critic of Islam, until succumbing to the jesuitical ecumenicist political pressure of a petition placing organized religion over free speech, and giving in to a mental inquisition that one must not criticize established religions.

Hence Brandies would give a free pass to the Wlodimir Ledochowski directed 20th century counter reformation wars and holocausts.

Operation Paperclip German Flying Saucers - Wonder Weapons



http://endrtimes.blogspot.com/2014/04/operation-paperclip.html

After WWII ended in 1945, victorious Russian and American intelligence teams began a treasure hunt throughout occupied Germany for military and scientific booty. They were looking for things like new rocket and aircraft designs, medicines, and electronics. But they were also hunting down the most precious “spoils” of all: the scientists whose work had nearly won the war for Germany. The engineers and intelligence officers of the Nazi War Machine.

The U.S. Military rounded up Nazi scientists and brought them to America. It had originally intended merely to debrief them and send them back to Germany. But when it realized the extent of the scientists knowledge and expertise, the War Department decided it would be a waste to send the scientists home. Following the discovery of flying discs (foo fighters), particle/laser beam weaponry in German military bases, the War Department decided that NASA and the CIA must control this technology, and the Nazi engineers that had worked on this technology.

There was only one problem: it was illegal. U.S. law explicitly prohibited Nazi officials from immigrating to America — and as many as three-quarters of the scientists in question had been committed Nazis. Convinced that German scientists could help America’s post-war efforts, President Harry Truman agreed in September 1946 to authorize “Project Paperclip,” a program to bring selected German scientists to work on America’s behalf during the “Cold War”

However, Truman expressly excluded anyone found “to have been a member of the Nazi party and more than a nominal participant in its activities, or an active supporter of Nazism or militarism.”

The War Department’s Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency (JIOA) conducted background investigations of the scientists. In February 1947, JIOA Director Bosquet Wev submitted the first set of scientists’ dossiers to the State and Justice Departments for review.

The Dossiers were damning. Samuel Klaus, the State Departments representative on the JIOA board, claimed that all the scientists in this first batch were “ardent Nazis.” Their visa requests were denied. Wev was furious. He wrote a memo warning that “the best interests of the United States have been subjugated to the efforts expended in ‘beating a dead Nazi horse.’” He also declared that the return of these scientists to Germany, where they could be exploited by America’s enemies, presented a “far greater security threat to this country than any former Nazi affiliations which they may have had or even any Nazi sympathies that they may still have.”

When the JIOA formed to investigate the backgrounds and form dossiers on the Nazis, the Nazi Intelligence leader Reinhard Gehlen met with the CIA director Allen Dulles. Dulles and Gehlen hit it off immediately. Gehlen was a master spy for the Nazis and had infiltrated Russia with his vast Nazi Intelligence network. Dulles promised Gehlen that his Intelligence unit was safe in the CIA.

Apparently, Wev decided to sidestep the problem. Dulles had the scientists dossier’s re-written to eliminate incriminating evidence. As promised, Allen Dulles delivered the Nazi Intelligence unit to the CIA, which later opened many umbrella projects stemming from Nazi research. (MK-ULTRA / ARTICHOKE, OPERATION MIDNIGHT CLIMAX)

Military Intelligence “cleansed” the files of Nazi references. By 1955, more than 760 German scientists had been granted citizenship in the U.S. and given prominent positions in the American scientific community. Many had been longtime members of the Nazi party and the Gestapo, had conducted experiments on humans at concentration camps, had used slave labour, and had committed other war crimes.

In a 1985 expose in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists Linda Hunt wrote that she had examined more than 130 reports on Project Paperclip subjects–and every one “had been changed to eliminate the security threat classification.”

President Truman, who had explicitly ordered no committed Nazis to be admitted under Project Paperclip, was evidently never aware that his directive had been violated. State Department archives and the memoirs of officials from that era confirm this. In fact, according to Clare Lasby’s book Operation Paperclip, project officials “covered their designs with such secrecy that it bedevilled their own President; at Potsdam he denied their activities and undoubtedly enhanced Russian suspicion and distrust,” quite possibly fuelling the Cold War even further. A good example of how these dossiers were changed is the case of Wernher von Braun. A September 18, 1947, report on the German rocket scientist stated, “Subject is regarded as a potential security threat by the Military Governor.”

The following February, a new security evaluation of Von Braun said, “No derogatory information is available on the subject…It is the opinion of the Military Governor that he may not constitute a security threat to the United States.” Here are a few of the 700 suspicious characters who were allowed to immigrate through Project Paperclip. ...

An Indication of Russia's Illegitimacy


Russia to ban methadone programs in Crimea.

Russia is one of the worlds most regressive anti health promoters of the satanic-papal drug war, completely against the concept of 'harm reduction', for the sake of protecting markets in Virginia Bright Leaf Tobacco and hard alcohol, namely mind-numbing toxic vodka.
http://stopthedrugwar.org/chronicle/2014/mar/26/crimea_opiate_maintenance_crisis

excerpt

Things are about to get harder for opiate users in Crimea, the former Ukrainian province now annexed by Russia. While Ukraine has embraced a harm reduction approach to hard drug use, Russia rejects such an approach and has some of the most repressive drug laws in the world.

Russia does not support efficient programs for preventing HIV and Hepatitis C among its drug using population, and harm reduction measures like needle exchanges and opiate substitution therapy (OST), of which methadone maintenance is a subset, are illegal.

Now, the concrete consequences of Crimea's reincorporation into the ample bosom of Mother Russia are coming home for drug users there. On Wednesday, Russian "drug czar" Viktor Ivanov -- one of 31 allies of Pres. Vladimir Putin sanctioned by the US government this month -- announced that Russia will ban the use of methadone in Crimea. That comes after vows a week before that he would move away from harm reduction practices in general in Crimea.

"Methadone is not a cure," Ivanov claimed. "Practically all methadone supplies in Ukraine were circulating on the secondary market and distributed as a narcotic drug in the absence of proper control. As a result, it spread to the shadow market and traded there at much higher prices. It became a source of criminal incomes," he said.   See also

Pope Francis S.J. and Obama Met Today Face to Face




NY Times on Spain's Officially Welcoming Back its Expelled Jewish Peoples


Spain has just officially welcomed back Jewish peoples previously expelled during the Inqusition-
was it delayed till now because of the declining political situation of the Spanish monarchy since April 2012?

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/20/world/europe/many-seek-spanish-citizenship-offered-to-sephardic-jews.html?_r=0

The Spanish government has been flooded with thousands of inquiries about legislation it approved last month that will grant dual citizenship to descendants of Sephardic Jews expelled from Spain more than 500 years ago, the country’s justice minister said on Wednesday.

The minister, Alberto Ruiz-Gallardón, who considers the legislation his most important achievement, said in an interview at The New York Times that he anticipated that more than 150,000 people, scattered in the Sephardic Jewish diaspora, would seek Spanish citizenship under the measure, aimed at righting what the government has called a grievous error. The bill is expected to receive unanimous parliamentary approval.

“This law is a real historic reparation of, I dare say, the biggest mistake in Spanish history,” Mr. Gallardón said. He was visiting New York at the invitation of Jewish groups to explain the legislation, which has generated intense interest.

Spain’s roughly 200,000 Jews were ordered expelled in 1492 by Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand, who gave them four months to leave. Many were forced to sell their homes and businesses for nearly nothing, with many eventually resettling in other areas of Europe and North Africa bordering the Mediterranean, but also migrating elsewhere.

While there is no commonly accepted figure for the world’s Sephardic Jewish population — Sephardic is derived from the Hebrew word for Spain — by some reckonings as many as one-third of the world’s 13 million Jews may have Sephardic roots. Many live in Israel. But large Sephardic communities exist in countries including France, Mexico, Turkey and the United States.

Mr. Gallardón, a former mayor of Madrid and grandson of a Spanish ambassador to Romania who helped save Sephardic Jews from the Nazis, said he had been working on the legislation for years. It was first presented as a draft in November 2012.

A main goal, he said, was not only to repair an injustice to Jews, but also to repair Spain, where Jewish contributions to art, science and literature flourished before the expulsion. Many Sephardic Jews, he said, retain strong identifying connections to Spain.

“Instead of detaching from Spain and having hard feelings toward the country that expelled them, they became more attached to their country, their language and their traditions,” he said. During his travels, he said, he has found Spanish-speaking Sephardic Jews in Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar who can trace their roots to Toledo. Some Sephardic Jews, he said, “even got as far as Crimea — they are scattered all over the world.”

The dual-citizenship measure will require that applicants establish their heritage through surnames or other proof of ancestry, or a certificate from a recognized Sephardic Jewish federation or rabbinical authority, but the criteria will not be overly strict, and applicants need not be religiously observant. “We will look at any evidence,” the minister said. “We want to ease the process.”

NYTimes on Catholic Obama 'Community Activist'





The Catholic Roots of Obama's Activism
http://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/23/us/the-catholic-roots-of-obamas-activism.html?_r=0

excerpt

CHICAGO — In a meeting room under Holy Name Cathedral, a rapt group of black Roman Catholics listened as Barack Obama, a 25-year-old community organizer, trained them to lobby their fellow delegates to a national congress in Washington on issues like empowering lay leaders and attracting more believers.

“He so quickly got us,” said Andrew Lyke, a participant in the meeting who is now the director of the Chicago Archdiocese’s Office for Black Catholics. The group succeeded in inserting its priorities into the congress’s plan for churches, Mr. Lyke said, and “Barack Obama was key in helping us do that.”

By the time of that session in the spring of 1987, Mr. Obama — himself not Catholic — was already well known in Chicago’s black Catholic circles. He had arrived two years earlier to fill an organizing position paid for by a church grant, and had spent his first months here surrounded by Catholic pastors and congregations. In this often overlooked period of the president’s life, he had a desk in a South Side parish and became steeped in the social justice wing of the church, which played a powerful role in his political formation.

This Thursday, Mr. Obama will meet with Pope Francis at the Vatican after a three-decade divergence with the church. By the late 1980s, the Catholic hierarchy had taken a conservative turn that de-emphasized social engagement and elevated the culture wars that would eventually cast Mr. Obama as an abortion-supporting enemy. Mr. Obama, who went on to find his own faith with the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr.’s Trinity United Church of Christ, drifted from his youthful, church-backed activism to become a pragmatic politician and the president with a terrorist “kill list.” The meeting this week is a potential point of confluence.

A White House accustomed to archbishop antagonists hopes the president will find a strategic ally and kindred spirit in a pope who preaches a gospel of social justice and inclusion. Mr. Obama’s old friends in the priesthood pray that Francis will discover a president freed from concerns about re-election and willing to rededicate himself to the vulnerable.

But the Vatican — aware that Mr. Obama has far more to gain from the encounter than the pope does, and wary of being used for American political consumption — warns that this will hardly be like the 1982 meeting at which President Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II agreed to fight Communism in Eastern Europe. 

“We’re not in the old days of the great alliance,” said a senior Vatican official who was granted anonymity to speak frankly about the mind-set inside the Holy See. While Mr. Obama’s early work with the church is “not on the radar screen,” the official said, his recent arguments with American bishops over issues of religious freedom are: Catholic leaders have objected to a provision in the administration’s health care law that requires employers to cover contraception costs, and have sharply questioned the morality of the administration’s use of drones to fight terrorism.
As in many reunions, expectations, and the possibility for disappointment, run high.




In 1967, as the modernizing changes of the Second Vatican Council began to transform the Catholic world, Ann Dunham, Mr. Obama’s mother, took her chubby 6-year-old son occasionally to Mass and enrolled him in a new Catholic elementary school in Jakarta, Indonesia, called Santo Fransiskus Asisi. At school, the future president began and ended his days with prayer. At home, his mother read him the Bible with an anthropologist’s eye.

Pious he was not. “When it came time to pray, I would pretend to close my eyes, then peek around the room,” Mr. Obama wrote in his memoir “Dreams From My Father.” “Nothing happened. No angels descended. Just a parched old nun and 30 brown children, muttering words.”

In 1969, Mr. Obama transferred to a more exclusive, state-run school with a mosque, but a development in the United States would have a greater impact on his future career. American Catholic bishops responded to the call of the Second Vatican Council to focus on the poor by creating what is now known as the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, an antipoverty and social justice program that became one of the country’s most influential supporters of grass-roots groups.

By the early 1980s, when Mr. Obama was an undergraduate at Columbia University, the campaign was financing a project to help neighborhoods after the collapse of the steel mills near Chicago. The program’s leaders, eager to expand beyond Catholic parishes to the black Protestant churches where more of the affected community worshiped, sought an African-American for the task. In 1985, they found one in Mr. Obama, a fledgling community organizer in New York who answered a want ad for a job with the Developing Communities Project. The faith-based program aimed to unify South Side residents against unsafe streets, poor living conditions and political neglect. Mr. Obama’s salary was less than $10,000 a year.

The future president arrived in Chicago with little knowledge of Catholicism other than the Graham Greene novels and “Confessions” of St. Augustine he had read during a period of spiritual exploration at Columbia. But he fit seamlessly into a 1980s Catholic cityscape forged by the spirit of Vatican II, the influence of liberation theology and the progressivism of Cardinal Joseph L. Bernardin, the archbishop of Chicago, who called for a “consistent ethic of life” that wove life and social justice into a “seamless garment.”

On one of his first days on the job, Mr. Obama heard Cardinal Bernardin speak at an economic development meeting. He felt like a Catholic novice there, he wrote in his memoir, and later decided “not to ask what a catechism was.” But he was a quick study.

“He had to do a power analysis of each Catholic church,” said one of his mentors at the time, Gregory Galluzzo, a former Jesuit priest and disciple of the organizer Saul Alinsky. Mr. Obama, Mr. Galluzzo said, soon understood the chain of command and who had influence in individual parishes.

Russian Duma member calls to Partition Ukraine as Russia Masses Troops Along Eastern Ukrainian Border




http://www.tvp.info/14506221/duma-do-polskieg...
Deputy Chairman of the State Duma, leader of the LDPR, Vladimir Zhirinovsky proposes to Poland demanded a referendum on the attachment to our country in five western regions of Ukraine: Volyn, Lviv, Ivano-Frankovsk province, Ternopil and Rivne. A similar "offer" got Hungary and Romania ws. circuits Carpathian and Chernivtsi. Within Ukraine would remain only its central part.

Polish Foreign Ministry assesses the letter as "bizarre". Vladimir Zhirinovsky will get a courtesy reply, without reference to the content of your letter. Known for his controversial statements Russian politician has previously called for the partition of Ukraine from the rostrum of the State Duma.- "Kiev will never agree to the federalization of Ukraine, as it is no longer able to govern anything" - he said then. Zhirinovsky stressed that Ukraine's attempts to build a state always ended in failure. Marked that "Lutsk, Lviv, Ternopil is a Polish lands." "Messages" TVP1 

And:

Russian forces gathering on the border with eastern Ukraine may be poised to invade, the White House warned today, as the government in Kiev said that the prospect of war with Moscow was continuing to grow after the annexation of Crimea.

Speaking after Nato’s top commander in Europe voiced alarm about the size and preparedness of the Russian troop build-up, President Barack Obama’s deputy national security adviser, Tony Blinken, said President Vladimir Putin may indeed be readying further action.
“It’s deeply concerning to see the Russian troop build-up on the border,” Mr Blinken told CNN. “It creates the potential for incidents, for instability. It’s likely that what they’re trying to do is intimidate the Ukrainians. It’s possible that they’re preparing to move in.”

“It is very troubling,” Mr Rogers told NBC’s Meet the Press. “He has put all the military units he would need to move into Ukraine on its eastern border and is doing exercises. We see him moving forces in the south in a position where he could take the southern region over to Moldova.”

Nato officials are concerned that Mr Putin could have designs on Transnistria, a restive Russian-speaking region in western Moldova also known as Trans-Dniester, where separatist leaders have demanded to be allowed to join Russia following the annexation of Crimea.

Mr Breedlove, the Nato commander, said during remarks at an event held by the Marshall Fund thinktank that in the Kremlin’s view, the region was the “next place where Russian-speaking people may need to be incorporated”.

“There is absolutely sufficient force postured on the eastern border of Ukraine to run to Trans-Dniester if the decision was made to do that,” said Breedlove, “and that is very worrisome.”
Moldova’s President Nicolae Timofti warned Mr Putin last week against considering the annexation of Transnistria.
In other words, Putin shall put the Russian military in an invasion sweeping across the southern band of Ukraine, all the way west to Moldavia.

The Reincarnation of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth & Eastern Germany


http://www.electricpolitics.com/media/mp3/EP2014.02.24.mp3

Also at http://prorevnews.blogspot.com/2014/02/we-interrupt-ukraine-news-with-some.html

Very interesting interview.

George Kenney interviews Russian scholar Stephen F Cohen about Ukraine

See it especially at 17:00-22:00 and 35:00-42:00

Suggests allowing Kiev-Ukraine to join as a junior partner with Lithuania and Poland, in order to preserve Russian oriented southern and eastern areas of Ukraine for Russia.  Lithuania and Poland are here identified as the two countries at the forefront of pushing EU regime change in Ukraine, with the support of Germany.
19:10  They would as you say draw a red line on say Sevastopol, and so for Washington to think they we can wrest these territories from Russian orbit is extremely dangerous, and its not going to happen.

And its not going to happen.

Russia is not going to let eastern Ukraine go.

Actually, If Putin asked my opinion

If I were a patriotic Russian citizen instead of a patriotic American citizen as I am

I would say to Putin what do you want western Ukraine for anyway its nothing but trouble? I they want to go and be a junior poor partner with Lithuania and Poland and oh by the way it is Poland and Lithuania that have been driving this EU march on Ukraine, let them go. They are not Russian … western Ukraine was part of the polish empire, part of the Austrian empire; it has few affinities with Russia, whereas eastern Ukraine is Russian essentially. Let them go. And what do you get? You get the most populous part of Ukraine, that’s eastern and southern Ukraine. You preserve your naval base. … you won’t have the basket-case of western Ukraine
Mentions 'sidebar' story of Germany to become more assertive, with the need for Polish compensation to the east.
36:20 You mentioned Poland and Lithuania pushing for some change in Ukraine… What is your sense of the German role in all of this?

Well that’s the sidebar story but an important one. I can’t claim expertise on it but I looked into it asked people, and it appears to have this pre-history. Poland is very nervous about Germany’s growing role in Europe. So Poland wanted some empire of its own, like it …[once had]. It wanted Ukraine … to offset German economic and political influence. Meanwhile Germans has been talking about a more assertive foreign policy- taking more leadership. Now you got to remember that the wounds of WW2 are not completely healed; so when you tell a Polish citizen of a certain generation that Germany’s going to get more assertive, they get a little worried. So they wanted to enhance their sphere of influence economically and politically, and Poland was the ticket.

Brzezinski, the global chessboard and the Ukrainian chakra
26.02.2014
By Nicolas Bonnal
The collapse of the Soviet Union produced monumental geopolitical confusion.

Brzezinski, the global chessboard and the Ukrainian chakra. 52238.jpeg
The Ukrainian gruesome and somewhat insane disaster deserves one explanation: Zbigniew Brzezinski. The Polish-born American geopolitical expert deserves indeed to be read like Adolph Hitler, who demonized Russia in his time like "general" buffoon McCain does today. He predicted the American attitude and the global evolution in the nineties in his book The Grand Chessboard. This book is actually the Mein Kampf of the Global Elite and the New World Order. And the main obstacle is still the Russian heartland of McKinder and Haushofer; in order to destroy the Russian resistance, the last Christian bastion of resistance in this global agenda of global homogenization and extermination of cultures since the submission of the roman catholic church, America has paid, equipped, armed and trained the same kind of mercenaries it used elsewhere. It has also manipulated naïve nationalists and extremists always available to help the puppets' masters, and who served Nazi interests during the war. Think too of the global freedom fighters who slaughtered the leftist peasants of Central America for instance. The warrior militants of Svoboda will be condemned later by the Empire of the Good. And the Messianism of democracy, underlined by Tocqueville in his time, will do the rest.

But let's read Brzezinski:

Given the special geopolitical interest of Germany and Poland in Ukraine's independence, it is also quite possible that Ukraine will gradually be drawn into the special Franco-German-Polish relationship. By the year 2010, Franco-German-Polish-Ukrainian political collaboration, engaging some 230 million people, could evolve into a partnership enhancing Europe's geostrategic depth (see map above).

This is what Brzezinski calls the democratic bridgehead. The European Union that is openly the puppet of the Bilderbergs and NATO needs an "open Europe" like Soros needs pathetically an open society. A simple piece - or a pawn of the global order, an ageing Europe will be submerged demographically by Asia and Africa. But this does not matter, since our populations go ahead eyes wide shut...

Hence, America's central geostrategic goal in Europe can be summed up quite simply: it is to consolidate through a more genuine transatlantic partnership the U.S. bridgehead on the Eurasian continent so that an enlarging Europe can become a more viable springboard for projecting into Eurasia the international democratic and cooperative order.


Eurasia and central Asia will be Atlantic or not will be.

Ukraine is like a chakra, says a friend of mine in Paris, a chakra to detain and possess the Heartland. Of course Brzezinski, the man whose theories helped and inspired Al Qaeda in Afghanistan, Libya and Syria, agrees:

Most troubling of all was the loss of Ukraine. The appearance of an independent Ukrainian state not only challenged all Russians to rethink the nature of their own political and ethnic identity, but it represented a vital geopolitical setback for the Russian state.

Brzezinski adds too that with Ukraine Russia loses its southern frontier and its access to warm seas; as we know he wants to weaken Russia so that this country can be too integrated in the western matrix. This is why Putin has been demonized since his access to power.

Ukraine's independence also deprived Russia of its dominant position on the Black Sea, where Odessa had served as Russia's vital gateway to trade with the Mediterranean and the world beyond. The loss of Ukraine was geopolitically pivotal, for it drastically limited Russia's geostrategic options.

Brzezinski knows the hostility of Russia to the American manipulation of Ukrainians, as gullible as the other human beings. The aggressive and conquering attitude of NATO motivated a Russian reaction, even during the disastrous Yeltsin era.

The growing American inclination, especially by 1994, to assign a high priority to American-Ukrainian relations and to help Ukraine sustain its new national freedom was viewed by many in Moscow-even by its "westernizers"- as a policy directed at the vital Russian interest in eventually bringing Ukraine back into the common fold.

But (and Vladimir Putin should read theses lines), this is not important. Everybody wants to be a part of the process of Americanization because Russia is too weak, Russia is not attractive enough:
Russia was not strong enough politically to impose its will and not attractive enough economically to be able to seduce the new states.

This is true: since two centuries the American matrix is more seducing than the Russian model, even if America has bombed half of the world. It promises money, Las Vegas and Miami, the Corvette and Hollywood. In Paris I saw these time effeminate and métrosexuel Chinese running between the luxury boutiques of prestigious avenue Montaigne. Is this the Chinese way of des-Americanization?
Vladimir Putin incarnates a disappearing kind of statesman: he is a believer and he is at the service of his land, not of the markets. In France, Putin is presented as the new Stalin, the semi-tyrant who helps the full-time tyrants of Syria, Libya or even North Korea. People don't have time or resources to get another source of information - sources that are infamously labelled conspiracy. The devaluation of Vladimir Putin begins to be dangerous for the global health, but as we know, Western democracy will not stop. Western democracy is the Empire of the Good, and no one can stop such an Empire.

Let's conclude on Brzezinski.

Speaking of chessboard, another great mind, who happened to be Iranian, had warned us on that symbolism: We are played together in a baby-game upon the chess-board of existence.
