L’Art de la Guerre
Son nom de guerre est Delta. C’est un des chefs militaires de la « révolution ukrainienne » même si, comme il le déclare lui-même, il ne se considère pas comme Ukrainien. Sous le casque il porte la kippa . C’est l’agence de presse juive Jta (dont le siège est à New York) qui en raconte l’histoire, après l’avoir interviewé de façon anonyme, en le photographiant en tenue de camouflage et gilet pare-balle, le visage couvert par des lunettes et une écharpe noires. Delta est un vétéran de l’armée israélienne, qui s’est spécialisé en combat urbain dans la brigade d’infanterie Givati, utilisée dans l’opération Plomb Durci et dans d’autres actions contre Gaza, notamment le massacre de civils dans le quartier Tel el-Hawa. Rentré en Ukraine il y a quelques années en habits d’homme d’affaires, il a formé et entraîné avec d’autres ex militaires israéliens le peloton « Casques bleus de Maïdan », en appliquant à Kiev les techniques de combat urbain expérimentées à Gaza. Son peloton, déclare-t-il à la Jta, est aux ordres de Svoboda, autrement dit d’un parti qui derrière sa nouvelle façade conserve sa matrice néonazie. Pour tranquilliser justement les juifs ukrainiens qui se sentent menacés par les néonazis, Delta souligne que l’accusation d’antisémitisme à l’égard de Svoboda est une « connerie ».
La présence en Ukraine de spécialistes militaires israéliens est confirmée par l’information, diffusée par la Jta et d’autres agences juives, que plusieurs blessés dans les affrontements avec la police à Kiev ont immédiatement été transportés dans des hôpitaux israéliens, évidemment pour empêcher que quelqu’un ne révélât d’autres vérités incommodes. Comme celle sur les gens qui ont entraîné et armé les snipers qui, avec les mêmes fusils de précision, ont tiré, place Maïdan, à la fois sur les manifestants et sur les policiers (presque tous touchés à la tête). Ces faits apportent une nouvelle lumière sur la façon dont a été préparé et mis en œuvre le coup d’Etat de Kiev. Sous direction USA/OTAN, à travers la Cia et d’autres services secrets, ont été pendant des années recrutés, financés, entraînés et armés les militants néonazis qui à Kiev ont donné l’assaut aux palais gouvernementaux, et qui ont ensuite été institutionnalisés comme « garde nationale ».
Une documentation photographique, qui circule ces jours-ci, montre de jeunes militants néonazis ukrainiens de Uno-Unso entraînés en 2006 en Estonie par des instructeurs de l’OTAN, qui leur enseignent des techniques de combat urbain et d’utilisation d’explosifs pour des sabotages et des attentats. L’OTAN fit la même chose pendant la guerre froide pour former la structure paramilitaire secrète de type « stay-behind », avec le nom de code « Gladio ». Active aussi en Italie où, à Camp Darby (base étasunienne à côté de Pise) et dans d’autres bases, furent entraînés des groupes néofascistes en les préparant à des attentats et à un éventuel coup d’Etat. Une structure paramilitaire analogue a été créée et employée aujourd’hui en Ukraine, en se servant aussi de spécialistes israéliens.
Le coup d’Etat n’aurait cependant pas pu réussir si l’OTAN ne s’était attachée une grande partie des sommets de la hiérarchie militaire ukrainienne, en les formant pendant des années au NATO Defense College et dans des « opérations pour la paix » sous conduite OTAN. Et il n’est pas difficile d’imaginer que, sous le réseau officiel, ait été construit un réseau secret. Les forces armées ukrainiennes ont ainsi obéi à l’ordre de l’OTAN de « rester neutres », pendant que le coup d’Etat était en cours. Ensuite, leur direction a été prise par Andriy Parubiy, co-fondateur du parti socialnationaliste renommé Svoboda, devenu secrétaire du Comité de défense nationale, et, en habits de ministre de la défense, par Igor Tenjukh, lié à Svoboda.
A coup sûr est déjà en oeuvre l’épuration (ou élimination) des officiers jugés non fiables. Tandis que l’OTAN, qui a déjà de fait annexé l’Ukraine, déclare le référendum en Crimée « illégal et illégitime ».

L’Agence Info Libre est allée à la rencontre de Patrick Gatines, philosophe et chercheur indépendant, spécialiste des réseaux d’influence, et militant d’ATTAC.
M. Gatines oriente depuis quelques années ses recherches sur les lobbies et think-tanks euro-américains et propose sur son site internet, l’Observatoire Géopolitique des Réseaux d’Influence, un point périodique sur les négociations et les actions autour de l’accord de libre-échange transatlantique.
Reality on the ground in Ukraine contradicts the incompetent and immoral Obama regime’s portrait of Ukrainian democracy on the march.
To the extent that government exists in post-coup Ukraine, it is laws dictated by gun and threat wielding thugs of the neo-Nazi, Russophobic, ultra-nationalist, right-wing parties. Watch the video of the armed thug, Aleksandr Muzychko, who boosts of killing Russian soldiers in Chechnya, dictating to the Rovno regional parliament a grant of apartments to families of protesters.
Read about the neo-nazis intimidating the Central Election Commission in order to secure rule and personnel changes in order to favor the ultra-right in the forthcoming elections. Thug Aleksandr Shevchenko informed the CEC that armed activists will remain in CEC offices in order to make certain that the election is not rigged against the neo-nazis. What he means, of course, is the armed thugs will make sure the neo-nazis win. If the neo-nazis don’t win, the chances are high that they will take power regardless.
Members of President Yanukovich’s ruling party, the Party of Regions, have been shot, had arrest warrants issued for them, have experienced home invasions and physical threats, and are resigning in droves in hopes of saving the lives of themselves and their families. The prosecutor’s office in the Volyn region (western Ukraine) has been ordered by ultra-nationalists to resign en masse .
Jewish synagogs and Eastern Orthodox Christian churches are being attacked.
To toot my own horn, I might have been the first and only to predict that Washington’s organization of pro-EU Ukrainian politicians into a coup against the elected government of Ukraine would destroy democracy and establish the precedent that force prevails over elections, thereby empowering the organized and armed extreme right-wing.
This is precisely what has happened. Note that there was no one in the Obama regime who had enough sense to see the obvious result of their smug, self-satisfied interference in the internal affairs of Ukraine.
If a democratically elected president and ruling party are so easily driven from power by armed neo-nazis, what chance do Washington’s paid stooges among the so-called “moderates” have of forming a government? These are the corrupt people who wanted President Yanukovich out of office so that they could take the money instead. The corruption charge against Yanukovich was cover for the disloyal, undemocratic “moderate” schemers to seize power and be paid millions of dollars by Washington for taking Ukraine into the EU and NATO.
The Washington-paid schemers are now reaping their just reward as they sit in craven silence while neo-nazi Muzychko wielding an Ak-47 challenges government officials to their face: “I dare you take my gun!”
Only Obama, Susan Rice, Victoria Nuland, Washington’s European puppets, and the Western prostitute media can describe the brutal reality of post-coup Ukraine as “the forward march of democracy.”
The West now faces a real mess, and so does Russia. The presstitutes will keep the American public from ever knowing what has happened, and the Obama regime will never admit it. It is not always clear that even the Russians want to admit it. The intelligent, reasonable, and humane Russian Foreign Minister, a person 100 cuts above the despicable John Kerry, keeps speaking as if this is all a mistake and appealing to the Western governments to stand behind the agreement that they pressured President Yanukovich to sign.
Yanukovich is history, as are Washington’s “moderates.” The moderates are not only corrupt; they are stupid. The fools even disbanded the Riot Police, leaving themselves at the mercy of the armed right-wing nazi thugs.
Ukraine is out of control. This is what happens when an arrogant, but stupid, Assistant Secretary of State (Victoria Nuland) plots with an equally arrogant and stupid US ambassador (Pyatt) to put their candidates in power once their coup against the elected president succeeds. The ignorant and deluded who deny any such plotting occurred can listen to the conversation between Nuland and Pyatt here:
The situation will almost certainly lead to war. Only Putin’s diplomatic skills could prevent it. However, Putin has been demonized by Washington and the whores who comprise the US print and TV media. European and British politicians would have their Washington paychecks cut off if they aligned with Putin.
To anyone who had a passing knowledge of the nature of color revolutions and destabilization efforts in years past, the recent protests in Ukraine were an obvious example of foreign meddling in the domestic affairs of yet another Eastern European nation.
From the initial spates of violence coming largely from the direction of the protesters to the pro-EU and pro-IMF demands, it was clear from the very beginning that the Ukrainian people were being callously pulled back and forth between two world powers indifferent to any interests but their own.
These powers, the United States and Russia, have been covertly jockeying for more and more control over Ukraine, a strategic location for both countries, for the last several years. Yet, as the United States’ power and influence begins to wane and Russia’s begins to increase on the world stage, the risk of both powers clashing over Ukraine in a direct fashion becomes a bigger possibility by the day.
While tensions between the United States and Russia have escalated over the last three years through the Syrian crisis, Ukraine is more than a simple sphere-of-influence region for Russia. It is a sphere-of-influence region that borders the homeland. For this reason alone, the level of importance attributed to Ukraine by Russia is obviously higher than that of Syria in the long run.
Interestingly enough, it is for this same reason that the United States considers Ukraine such a vital sphere-of-influence nation as well. That is, the fact that Ukraine lies on the doorstep of Russia.
Although the reasons for considering Ukraine an extremely important part of the world by both the United States and Russia cannot simply be boiled down to that of a border issue, the fact remains that the potential for a direct collision between two world nuclear powers is a possibility if the meddling continues.
In the meantime, as the Ukrainian people are being used as battering rams for the will of world elites, they are quite clearly the guaranteed loser no matter what decision is made. With the recent success of the Western-backed color revolution, what is also clear is that the only winner in Ukraine is austerity, Fascism, the IMF, and, of course, the world elites. International bankers, as usual, are salivating over the coming feast that will come at the expense of the living standards of the Ukrainian people and the coffers of the Ukrainian government.
Even before a ruling government can be formed by the leading color revolutionary leaders Yatsenyuk, Klitschko, and other relevant agents of destabilization, the acting President, Oleksander Turchinov, is stating that European integration is a high priority of the new government. This, of course, means that Ukraine will soon move forward in becoming a full-fledged member in good standing of the new European Soviet known as the European Union.
In addition, leading contender for the post of Prime Minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, and the Parliamentary leader of the Fatherland Party, is now calling on the rest of Parliament to immediately come to agreement on a new government so that Ukraine can now crawl to the International Monetary Fund for “emergency economic assistance.” As one may expect, the IMF has already declared that it will require harsh austerity measures and other “economic changes” in exchange for any aid to Ukraine.
The $15 billion bailout package provided by Russia to Ukraine in December has now been suspended, placing Ukraine in imminent danger of default. The Hryvna, the Ukrainian currency, has been sharply devalued and the country’s bond rating has been downgraded in such a dramatic fashion that Ukraine is no longer able to borrow on international markets. Foreign reserves have also dropped dramatically.
If conditions persist, Ukraine will soon no longer be able to pay public pensions and salaries.
Yet austerity is not the only result of the recent Ukrainian “revolution.” Subtle and even outright Fascism has come to dominate not only the demonstrations themselves but the relatively young “transitional” phase now taking place.
Indeed, this relatively new trend of Fascist rule was enunciated in a recent statement by Natalia Vitrenko of the Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine, a party that asserts its opposition to both the Orange Revolution installment of Yuschenko as well as the polices of Yanukovych.
Vitrenko first began by describing the nature of the movement used to oust Yanukovych by pointing out that many of the most powerful elements of the anti-Yanukovych movement, or Euromaidan, were indeed fascists and neo-Nazi’s. She stated,
< Washington and Brussels should hear our warnings. We hold them responsible for all they have done to transfer power to the political forces responsible for establishing this totalitarian Nazi regime in Ukraine, with the inevitable gross violation of the rights and freedoms of millions of our fellow citizens.
The U.S. and EU should know that this power grab by political parties and movements including neo-Nazi forces (such as “Svoboda – Freedom” and “Right Sector”) , announced the implementation of a national revolution under the slogans “Ukraine for Ukrainians,” "Glory to the nation – death to enemies," "Muscovite tools and Communists to the gallows!" and others.
Starting on February 22, this new government must assume all responsibility throughout Ukraine for the violation of the rights and freedoms of citizens.
Vitrenko then went on to discuss the events currently unfolding in Ukraine including the capture of government buildings as well as political intimidation, force, beatings, shootings, and even lynchings of those seen as pro-government or opposed to the positions of the Western-backed fascists. Vitrenko states,
US investigative journalist Wayne Madsen says American officials complimented the opposition party of Svoboda in Ukraine that is a “neo-Nazis organization.”
“The American government supports neo-Nazis, but I just find it absolutely ironic that those who are neoconservative and pro-Israel are also supporting neo-Nazis who made a large portion of Ukrainian illegal government,” he told Press TV on Tuesday.
The most controversial element of the anti-government alliance in Ukraine is Svoboda.
The group is an extreme right-wing political party that not only has representation in parliament, but has been dubbed by its critics as a neo-Nazi organization.
During a press conference on Monday, White House press secretary Jay Carney refused questions about whom Washington recognized as the leader of Ukraine.
Ukrainian protesters forced President Viktor Yanukovych from the capital and installed Oleksandr Turchinov as the “interim president.”
Opposition leaders issued an arrest warrant for President Yanukovych, who has fled Kiev.
Carney said Yanukovych’s actions had “undermined his legitimacy,” adding he was “not actively leading his country.”
“This is what the problem is in Ukraine today. We have a non-functioning government. Russia does not recognize the legitimacy of that government,” Madsen said.
“He [Carney] knows what the situation is with neo-Nazis and Ukraine. He was a former Time magazine correspondent in Moscow and he’s traveled to Kiev. He knows the full situation but why he doesn’t prevail on President Obama to not recognize this illegitimate government in Kiev is beyond me,” he added.
