Russia ‘Forced’ to Hold Military Drills in Response to Ukraine Op: Moscow

Russia begins extensive military drills at border following escalation of violence in E Ukraine

“The order to use force against civilians has already been given, and if this military machine is not stopped, the amount of casualties will only grow,” said Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu in Moscow.

“War games by NATO in Poland and the Baltic states are not helping the normalization of the situation. We are forced to react to the situation.”

“The special operation against pro-federalization protesters underway in the eastern Ukrainian city of Slaviansk has left five members of local self-defense forces dead and one policeman injured,” reported RIA Novosti, quoting he Ukrainian Interior Ministry as saying on Thursday.

Some 11,000 Ukrainian troops, 160 tanks, 230 armored carriers and at least 150 artillery pieces are deployed in the operation against anti-Kiev activists, said Shoigu.

“National guard units and Right Sector extremists are fighting against the peaceful population, as well as a volunteer Donbass ‘anti-terrorist’ unit. Also security and internal forces transferred to Lugansk and Donetsk from other areas of the country are suppressing dissent,” he said.

Protesters in Kharkiv, Donetsk, Gorlovka, Slaviansk and Kramatorsk consider the current Ukrainian government as “illegitimate” and are urging interim authorities to hold referendums similar to the one held in Crimea last month, which led to the republic’s reunification with Russia, said RIA Novosti.

Meanwhile, NATO began war games in Poland on Wednesday, and plans to hold military drills in the Baltic states next week.

Toying with Russia before grabbing her…

The wars for resources are about the survival of the fattest. They are fought by the urge to secure more of other peoples’ resources: More water, more food, more fertile land and more energy to maintain unsustainable lifestyles. —EDRO

In the most likely scenario, after the first phase of world’s cities has collapsed, an all-out global war would break out that would be fought with nuclear, exotic, biological and conventional weapons:

Leaked EU’s Ashton and Estonian Foreign Minister phone tape: Kiev snipers hired by Maidan leaders [thugs]

Officers of Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) loyal to the ousted President Viktor Yanukovich have hacked phones of Estonian Minister of Foreign Affairs Urmas Paet and High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton and leaked their conversation to the web. The officials discuss their impressions of what’s happening in the country after the revolution. The gist of it is that Ukrainian people have no trust in any of the leaders of Maidan [Kiev Independence Square.]

However, the most striking thing of all is the fact which concerns the use of force during the revolution, particularly the snipers who killed both protesters and officers of the riot police. Mr. Paet reveals astonishing information which confirms the rumors that the snipers were employed by the leaders of Maidan.

“Sea of Police” in Ukraine, Looting in Argentina, Hunger Strike…

Posted by feww on December 11, 2013

Thousands of police move on large protest camps in central Kiev, Ukraine

Thousands of riot police and Interior Ministry personnel have moved on  large protest camps in Independence Square (Maidan Nezalezhnosti) in the center of the Ukrainian capital, Kiev amid snow and sub-zero temperatures.

Clashes broke out after police began tearing down barricades close to the main protest site in the square, but soon turned into a tense standoff.

According to unconfirmed reports police began storming the Kiev city hall, which was occupied by protesters a week ago.

Mass street rallies began about three weeks ago shortly after the government’s decision to withdraw from a free-trade deal with the EU last.

Looters hit Argentina’s Stores amid ongoing police strike

Looting has spread across 19 out of 23 provinces in Argentina, as police continue their strike due to low pay.

The looting first broke out in Cordoba province earlier this month, leaving several people dead and more than 100 others injured before the local police struck a deal to double their monthly salaries to about $1,900.

Police are demanding above-inflation pay rises and refuse to answer call-outs. Inflation in Argentina is running at 25 – 30 percent a year.

Supermarkets, retail businesses, banks and public transport have all shut down in dozens of Argentina’s cities, just as a summer heatwave engulfs the country.

About a dozen people have been killed and hundreds more injured since the looting began.
