I’m going to start by pointing out, if the reports are accurate, more than any other person on the planet, Barrack Obama is the person most responsible for creating the mess in Ukraine. Much like in Egypt, where he backed the long outlawed Terrorist Muslim Brotherhood take over of a populist movement, helped them oust Mubarak and take control of the Government..
From Pando Daily:
When the revolution came to Ukraine, neo-fascists played a front-center role in overthrowing the country’s president. But the real political power rests with Ukraine’s pro-western neoliberals. Political figures like Oleh Rybachuk, long a favorite of the State Department, DC neocons, EU, and NATO—and the right-hand man to Orange Revolution leader Viktor Yushchenko.
Last December, the Financial Times wrote that Rybachuk’s “New Citizen” NGO campaign “played a big role in getting the protest up and running.”
New Citizen, along with the rest of Rybachuk’s interlocking network of western-backed NGOs and campaigns— “Center UA” (also spelled “Centre UA”), “Chesno,” and “Stop Censorship” to name a few — grew their power by targeting pro-Yanukovych politicians with a well-coordinated anti-corruption campaign that built its strength in Ukraine’s regions, before massing in Kiev last autumn.
The efforts of the NGOs were so successful that the Ukraine government was accused of employing dirty tricks to shut them down. In early February, the groups were the subject of a massive money laundering investigation by the economics division of Ukraine’s Interior Ministry in what many denounced as a politically motivated move.
Fortunately the groups had the strength – which is to say, money – to survive those attacks and continue pushing for regime change in Ukraine. The source of that money?
According to the Kyiv Post, Pierrie Omidyar’s Omidyar Network (part of the Omidyar Group which owns First Look Media and the Intercept) provided 36% of “Center UA”’s $500,000 budget in 2012— nearly $200,000. USAID provided 54% of “Center UA”’s budget for 2012. Other funders included the US government-backed National Endowment for Democracy.
Much like in Egypt, Obama’s scheme blew up in his face.. In Egypt the Egyptian people quickly tired of Obama’s puppets burning Churches and nailing Christians to trees. in a second coup they overthrew Obama’s terrorist friends and the Government they created.. That hasn’t happened in Ukraine, at least not yet..
What did happen was predictable..
Vladimir Putin reacted to Obama pooping in Russia’s back yard. He quickly seized Crimea from Ukraine and told Obama it was his move.. Read more…
