Meanwhile, of course, it is NO secret COMPARABLE hire-a-NAZI thug as those in IRAN OCCUPIED IRAQ (AND EGYPT MB), "have gun will travel," goon squads operate in Ukraine. I never understand why people label them "neo-"NAZI. What is "neo" about them??
For those KNOWING SOME history, NAZI Ukraine forces are and were a virulent, bestial, primordial, group. Their BARBARIC atrocities are legend. Read about it/them yourselves IF you do not already know.
Anyway, by now, everyone understands ECONOMIC PRIVATIZATION, motivation, conflict, stands behind it all, in particular, in this instance, FORMER USSR STATE OWNED energy, gas and oil, pipelines, routes, like GAZPROM.
You can decipher a spiders web of economic intrigue, financial interests, double, triple, dealings, subterfuge, criminal machinations, high crimes and misdemeanors, extortion, IMF, recidivist crimes against humanity, THEFT, appropriation, murder, mayhem, etc., yourselves.
John Helmer's website highlighting Russian oligarch financial exploits helps illuminate some salient and pertinent facts, but, of course, he/it can NOT be thorough, comprehensive, complete.
ADD to Ukraine/CAUCASUS equations nearby, ongoing, ARAB NIGHTMARE, SURROGATE, PROXY, WARS, "interventions," SYRIA, IRAQ, MENASA (MidEastNoAfricaSoAsia), Maghreb, KILLING FIELDS BETWEEN ALL parties combined, encompassing, of course, Russia/Putin.
So, a NOT so Great, Grand, vast Eurasian Chessboard game disintegrating, evaporating, before your/their very eyes, thanks to sordid, pathetic, efforts of antediluvian artifacts represented by those above and on my many posts.
AS IN EGYPT, UKRAINE GOVERNMENT MUST RESPOND MILITARILY TO SMASH THESE NAZI HATE GROUPS OR UKRAINE WILL CEASE TO EXIST!!
BUT, A CAVEAT, CATCH 22, exists.
Of course, ALL above and oh so clever Russia/Putin UTILIZE PROXY NAZI ISLAMIC, surrogate, forces, thugs, for THEIR OWN ECONOMIC ADVANTAGE, LEVERAGE, PURPOSES, representing a quid pro quo of sorts, I guess, in this abysmal power equation.
Bring into one place, like Ukraine, a STRONG military response, how can he/they/Putin justify NOT bringing an equally STRONG MILITARY response to a nearby Mideast theatre, like Syria??
AND WHICH, WHOSE, WHAT, MILITARY??
What is good for a NAZI goose, being good for a NAZI gander. Furthermore, as in what was FORMER USSR RED ARMY, KEMAL ATATURK, EGYPT NASSER, revolutions, MILITARY ALONG WITH domestic CLASS OPPOSITION, CAN and DO USURP POWER AND POSSIBLY RE-NATIONALIZATION, perish the thought, God forbid!!
So, what's a good NAZI PRIVATIZING goose and/or gander to do??
No matter which way THEIR game and spin plays out, it is a DOOMED AFFAIR--like OUR CYCLICAL, BOOM AND BUST, SYSTEMIC, ECONOMIC BANKRUPTCY, COLLAPSE, creations of the same LUNATIC FRINGE in charge everywhere NOW!!
IF one woke up on a given morning, wherever you happen to be, and, "news" announced your respective government plans ROLLING BACK a MAJOR RIVER like a MISSISSIPPI, NILE, or, any other, i.e., REVERSE its COURSE, FLOW, DIRECTION, how would you react to that pronouncement??
Well, essentially, that's the predicament in which we/you find ourselves NOW!!
Last time around such inevitable, expanding, imperialist contradictions led to WWI explosion, AND, then, subsequently, as direct cause and effect, RUSSIAN BOLSHEVIK, LENIN, STALIN, REVOLUTION, then, onwards to WWII in response to first development of RUSSIAN REVOLUTION, upon which next outcome of WWII merely extended revolution further globally.
So, now, what can one anticipate as we descend further and further down a Faustian political hellhole bargain of chaos, an abyss, a Marianas trench, Hades underworld, Dante's Inferno, sinking to THE LOWEST, MOST DARK, COMMON DENOMINATOR POSSIBLE??
But, let us not end on such a pessimistic note.
Let us be more upbeat.
So, as promised in my HEADING, I submit for your ENTERTAINMENT, amusement, diversion, a SURREAL theatrical experience.
Get ready, fasten your seat belts for:
FREE ENTERPRISE AND THE [LIBERAL SUPPORTED] DALAI LAMA!!
I found myself again awestruck at this visual juxtaposition, laughing aloud hysterically.
Does theatrical fiction EVER depict REALITY OF THE ABSURD any better than as presented below??
A few minor notes before ATTEMPTING to listen, view, entire video.
If you do NOT understand the Dalai Lama, really, it does NOT matter. He mumbles and articulates sweet nothings, basically.
Too bad they did NOT include in their panel SAINT SADR, above.
IF you cannot tolerate listening to this ideological Sophistry, don't bother yourself.
Just note WHO sits ON their panel, institutional affiliations, associations.
The ONLY panelist even remotely close to saying something significant and critical, but, nonetheless, still OBLIQUE, being Diana Walsh, part 2.
Of course, IF she articulated anything DIRECT, TO THE POINT, as in MY posts, she would NOT exist on this panel, in this group, in her position, in the first place.
So, I submit as TODAY'S stand up, or, as the case may be, seated, COMIC RELIEF, IRONY, JOKE:
