  1. Thanks USA, the CIA and the Obama administration.
    The country is mostly Russian, and the US has NO BUSINESS being in there to destabilize everything so they can break down Russian support……instead, they are making it stronger.
    Putin is winning, and so far, has done nothing.
    The US needs to update its strategies……..this is despicable.

    Here it is, folks. The US (NATO) are now blaming Russia for the upheaval in the Ukraine, completely ignoring the fact the US put a puppet government in there the people don’t want……..the CIA causing it’s usual murderous tricks……..and NATO 2nd in command…….whatever level of stooge that is, now says Russia is the enemy.
    That goddamn Obama is doing everything he can to start a world war with Russia……which we will lose.
    He is truly a Manchurian candidate, and ought to be removed from office. But, in a nation so corrupt that it would not remove war criminals from office (GW Bush and Co), don’t hold your breath.
    Right now US media is covering, CNN, the missing plane that has been photographed parked in Israel, HLN the flood in FL, CNNI, talking about military conscription in the Ukraine, and they are on full alert (BE SCARED, BE SCARED!!!!), BBC, Ukraine problems caused by Russian interference, the IMF approves a bailout of the Ukraine…..,FOX, GOP questions Bengasi attack, huh?, Ford facing bankruptcy, MSNBC the storms in the east, CNBC, falling market, CNBCW, lives of the rich, Bloomberg, the competition between Dish and Cable….a merger is in the works to raise prices even more……and that is it.
    This bastard in the White House is starting a world war, and they talk about this garbage.
    I knew you would want to know about this…..
