Ukraine chief of staff ‘thwarts Western allegations’ by admitting no combat with Russian troops — RT News states the news that broke two days ago and concerning which I briefly commented in social media. I want to focus attention though on Barack Obama concerning this.
First, "Chief of the General Staff – Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine – Viktor Muzhenko officially acknowledged during a briefing for foreign military attachées that Russian troops are not involved in the fighting in the country's southeast." The Kiev General was referring to regular Russian military troops operating under Russian command. Russia has all along openly stated that Russian men, including soldiers, have volunteered to fight in Donbass for the DPR and not as ordered to by Russia or even as volunteers called by the Russian military to do so.
The article mentions some weasel words of Sergey Galushko claiming in a mad-scramble damage-control statement that the alleged Russian troops are in a “second echelon.” Well, we are supposed to believe that some 9,000 Russian regulars are fighting in Donbass but not on the frontline and not in Russian uniforms with Russian insignias, etc. However, note the following very carefully:
The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) said it has not registered any movement of military vehicles at the Russia-Ukraine border checkpoints it observes, according to a statement made on January 22.
We were told that both troops and heavy weapons rolled across the border after the onset of the recent counter-attacks by the DPR Army.
Now, if the equipment didn't move, then why are we supposed to believe the Russian troops did? If they lied about the equipment, then they've perjured themselves. They've born false witness to the world, and Barack Obama is the biggest offender in it.
Barack Obama stated emphatically words in direct support of Poroshenko's claims about Russian troops and equipment pouring into Donbass. Obama made zero qualifying statements to cast any doubt on Poroshenko's completely unsubstantiated claims (at least half of which is shown by the OSCE to be a flat-out lie).
Look, Barack Obama has been engaging in the Big Lie tactic: repeating a falsehood so often that even with others attempting to counter it, it catches on with the dupes and minions and is accepted by the masses as truth. It's manufactured consent based upon pure lies, just as with George W. Bush's use of the fake yellow cake memo to get the American public to swing to supporting invading Iraq.
Obama had been trying to use the same tactic concerning Iran's nuclear program, but after being hammered about it in social media from people such as yours truly, he finally saw the light and distanced himself from the die-hard Big Lie employer, Benjamin Netanyahu.
Well, Obama is going to have to be pressed on the Big Lies being employed concerning Ukraine.
The truth of the matter is that this whole Ukraine problem is completely the cause of the greed of Western plutocrats who want global control so they may have all the more private wealth, power, and control and to hell with the masses (who are only there to serve those plutocrat masters).
You may find that a stretch, but that would be because you don't understand the nature of the "democracy" we are suffering under. It is a controlled democracy. The plutocrats have assumed control and only allow to happen what they want to happen within a very narrow range of possibilities, including real democracy. The plutocrats, via their corporations and such, flood politics with money and favors to the point where nobody really rises beyond a certain point without acquiescing to the plutocrats plan for the world.
Since the 1970's especially, the plutocrats have clamped down more and more in this regard to the point where now, it would take a revolution to dislodge them. Reform from within via the typical US election will not get them out. This is because politicians cannot stand up telling the unvarnished and whole truth and survive the onslaught and censorship and false counter-claims accompanied by more money and promises and deals made with corrupt politicians.
This does not mean that all is hopeless or that violent revolution is the only way. What it does mean is that you have to stop ostensibly ignoring what I'm saying but rather openly support it and spread it. More than anything, that's what Obama's handlers don't want. If you cave in to them because you are afraid of the evil they will do to you, they'll have you. You'll have lost your soul. That's what they're counting on.
