We should know by now that NATO kills

Cailean Bochanan

We should know by now that NATO kills

Killing in Serbia and Iraq

In Afghanistan the plan of attack

Bombing weddings in the hills

We should know by now that NATO kills

Taking away the child’s breath

In tribute to the cult of death

Is this really what God wills?

We should know by now that NATO kills

What is it?What is this beast

That amidst the carnage comes to feast

as in its bloody trough it swills?

We should know by now that NATO kills

The image of Obama smirking there

Reminding me of Tony Blair

With deep disgust my soul it fills

We should know by now that NATO kills

Ever there the news to manage

Telling us of collateral damage

Their army of despicable, lying shills

We should know by now that NATO kills

What exotic locations to destroy!

What wonderful weapons to deploy!

Is this how they get their thrills?

We should know by now that NATO kills

What kind of mind could spawn

Weapons meant to kill the unborn

And the marrow of my bones chills

We should know by now that NATO kills

So now the moment to end its reign

To be subject never again

To all its crimes and attendant ills

We should know by now that NATO kills

Ukraine, EU to ratify Association Agreement simultaneously

Posted by seumasach on September 4, 2014

First, they tried to sign the AA with the legal government, then they tried to sign it with the illegal government which they had installed via a coup d’etat. Now they are trying to sign it with a government which has just lost a war against part of its own population, whose neo-nazi front line troops have sworn to overthrow it, whose national army has disintegrated and which will preside over a de facto partition of the the country if it continues to reject a negotiated peace settlement. All this so that the respective parties can save some face and continue to maintain the completely false story they have been putting out through their completely controlled media. The EU cannot get much lower than this and if it continues to exhibit this kind of political ineptitude, fruit of a political class completely in tow to Anglo-American interests, it will collapse. The problem in Europe is not so much the economy or the common currency but the crisis in direction and in the absence of an independent political leadership.

West reneges on Ukraine agreements

Posted by seumasach on September 4, 2014

Ukraine, the USA and the EU felt they could ignore existing agreements as regime forces pushed East. Now that these forces have been defeated and are being pushed West, they still think they can ignore agreements. But the agreements could help to avoid further humiliation in the form of further defeats, the exposure of the role of fascist and Western mercenary forces in the conflict and possible revolution in Kiev. The West is now in total disarray, substituting fantasy and bluff and bluster for coherent  attempts to find solutions to problems of its own making. If they think their behavior goes unnoticed they are mistaken: the whole is taking cognizance of the amateurism and unreliability of the West and taking steps to protect themselves from its erratic policies. At the same time, we in the West need to urgently rethink our whole approach since we need the emerging world to help us avoid the worst in the coming economic collapse.

Russia Beyond The Headlines

3rd September, 2014

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has declared a temporary ceasefire in eastern Ukraine after a telephone conversation with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. Russian experts believe the time to put an end to the bloodshed is long overdue. However, such a decision could be interpreted as weakness and may cost Poroshenko his political career.

Putin’s cunning peace plan

Posted by seumasach on September 3, 2014

Cunningly, Putin plans to foil the West by refusing to invade Ukraine and partition it as expected by Western analysts. Instead, he has proposed peace talks and to maintain the integrity of Ukraine as has already been agreed in talks with Ukraine and the EU.

NATO can’t do anything to save Ukraine

Posted by seumasach on September 3, 2014

All the nonsense and bravado that comes out of today’s NATO summit will not be able to conceal the essential irrelevance of this organization, an irrelevance confirmed by it’s inability to come to the aid of a militantly anti-Russian regime in Ukraine, installed by NATO itself, its very own baby if you like. For what purpose does NATO have if it is not the roll-back of Russia and the fact that Ukraine is not a NATO member is a mere technicality, world dominance was never going to be achieved by playing by the rules. The Kiev regime is NATO creation in its own image: NATO old-timers must have warmed to images of distressed pensioners, crying children and corpses in the street resulting from Ukrainian bombardment of Ukrainian citizens. Their thoughts would have gone back to past exploits: to destroyed bridges and trains in Serbia, to bombed weddings in Afghanistan and, more recently, to providing murderous air cover for murderous jihadis in Libya. Oh, the glory of it all! Yet those days are gone, never to return: the will simply isn’ there. I hope this is Obama’s irony: if so, it says it all:

“It [NATO] is unbreakable, it is unwavering, it is eternal. And Estonia will never stand alone,”

New Republic

3rd September, 2014

This week’s NATO summit in Wales has been billed as themost important meeting in the organization’s history, “a strategic inflection point,” an occasion for its rebirth,rediscoveryreinvention as a tougher, mightier alliance. The impetus for this new beginning is the worsening situation in Ukraine, which awoke the organization from its slumber by alerting it to the fact that its member states in Eastern Europe are vulnerable to an assault from Russia. Ukraine will be one of the main items on the agenda. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko will be on the scene at the Welsh golf resort to plead for help, badly needed after his squabble with Russia on Wednesday, which resulted in yet another failed attempt at a ceasefire. Poroshenko will try to  convince European leaders that Russia is not just at war with Ukraine, it’s at war with all of Europe.

Ukraine, Russia reach ceasefire agreement

Posted by seumasach on September 3, 2014

Since the regime forces are being routed I assume that ceasefire here means withdrawal from Donbass. This is not something to be negotiated with Putin but with the leadership of the Donetsk and Lugansk Republics. Nevertheless, this is a clear indication that Poroshenko has sufficiently eroded the Right Sector to free himself from their influence.

Outlook India

3rd September, 2014

The office of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko says he and Russian President Vladimir Putin have reached agreement on a ceasefire in eastern Ukraine.

How can you tell whether Russia has invaded Ukraine?

Club Orlov

30th August, 2014

Last Thursday the Ukrainian government, echoed by NATO spokesmen, declared that the the Russian military is now operating within Ukraine’s borders. Well, maybe it is and maybe it isn’t; what do you know? They said the same thing before, most recently on August 13, and then on August 17, each time with either no evidence or fake evidence. But let’s give them the benefit of the doubt.

The Common Market of the South:

the long and difficult path to integration

Ariel Noyola Rodríguez

2nd September, 2014

Integration in Latin America is moving forward with missteps, contradictions of peripheral capitalism and the strong opposition from the United States. However, the prompt implementation of the Banco del Sur in partnership with the new development bank of the BRICS could call into question the financial dominance of Washington in the region and strengthen the integration dream of the economies of the South.

The vulture fund NML Capital that, together with others, has Argentina on the edge of suspending payments, is already devouring the rotting flesh of the Spanish market. Elliott Management, the opportunistic fund of the serial U.S. speculator Paul Singer, has already pocketed a billion euros of Bankia’s failed credit and 300 million euros of Santander. It is estimated that it has paid hardly 50 million for both these portfolios, according to Auraree.com.
