Ukraine: Is Putin Hiding Fact He Doesn't Have As Big A Fighting Force As Claimed?

From Denny:  Does anyone else find it peculiar that Putin keeps trying to bully other military troops into defecting and giving their allegiance to Russia?  Putin has directed his military to force Ukraine's people and military to join Russia and fight for Russia during this Crimea crisis. They sure don't look enthused.

Putin's bullying young and older military age men in surrounding countries that were former Soviet satellite orbits.  Putin even tried to bully a Ukraine base commander into joining the Russian military, holding him for five days and torturing him this past week.

Yet Putin did not succeed.  The Ukraine colonel defied Putin and Russian bullying tactics.  With the whole world watching it wasn't like Putin could kill him on the spot.  Of course, that sure didn't stop Putin from sending assassins this week to kill a Russian oligarch, Putin's avowed enemy, in the UK.  Guess Putin figured no one would notice.  Are you kidding?

That military defection sure is an odd strategy, coming from a guy like Putin who claims he has the best and most numerous fighting force in the world.  Could it be that the lack of population growth in Russia is contributing to his seeming bravado that's really just a bluff?  Can it be Putin is desperate to make one last stand to absorb other countries' young fighting age men into his military before the world finds out that he just doesn't possess all that he claims? 

And then there's this month's "annexation of other countries" new law in Russia.  Along with that new law came a fast-track Russian citizenship, basically enabling a brain-drain in all the surrounding countries of Russian speakers who are "highly qualified specialists and successful entrepreneurs" moving to Russia.  Clearly, Russia is hurting for highly educated and competent people to run their industries.  Many of the best fled Russia a long time ago while they could, back in the 1990's.

Russia's Health Minister claims they have no population decline problems any more.  He claims that's been handled since smoking has declined.  Yeah, right.  Why are their abortion rates so high?  Why don't young women want to have children in Russia?  Why is alcoholism still so high?  When they say "it's not about the population decline" then, you guessed it, it's all about the population decline.

Russia and Iran Attacking U. S., 60 Years Later Russian Missiles Based In Cuba, Latin America

From Denny:  Is it any wonder the world is mobilizing their collective military to take down Russia, and, now their partner in crime, Iran?

At first the West was content with just limited economic sanctions but Idiot Putin and Iran think they can double down on their retaliation and now attack America directly with their long range missiles they are positioning in Latin American bases.  They have been planning this multi-level attack for years.  I say just "Fuck 'em and feed 'em to the fish."  This never was about Crimea and Ukraine in the first place.

Insane Putin is back to settle the old score with America in a re-do 60 years later before most of us and him were even born.  What a moron.  He thinks this time Russia will not back down like Russian history erroneously believes Khruschev did with President Kennedy.  Actually, Khrushchev did not back down.  What Khruschev got was the U. S. missiles removed from Russia's back yard in Turkey as an exchange.  Khruschev and Kennedy came to an agreement.  Khruschev removed his missiles from the U. S.'s back yard in Cuba.  The U. S. removed their missiles from Russia's back yard in Turkey.  No one lost; they both won.

Guess all those American retirees in the area of the Nicaraguan base had better return to the U. S. because this is going to be a very messy war with a rapidly imploding Russia and Iran.  Canadian and European business investors had better get out of the area of the Cuban base immediately too...

Ukraine: Time To Label Russia A Rogue State and Beef Up NATO?

Vladimir Putin - Inflaming Ukraine Challenging...

From Denny:  While Putin plays Liars Poker with the world, losing miserably, it's time for the world to move past this dead leader walking.  It's only a matter of time before he is assassinated or removed from office.

Meanwhile, the rest of us need to decide how we will handle rogue actions like this seizing of sovereign territory as Putin has done in Crimea.

He has his eye on the rest of the Ukraine, hoping to take it in big chunks: the first easy plucking was Crimea as he knew most Russians back home would not oppose him.  Next he is moving to take Eastern Ukraine where there are ethnic Russians in residence as they are in Crimea.  After that he plans to take back the rest of Ukraine just for general principle and a fun military exercise...

Jon Stewart Is Laughing At Washington Weasel Fight: Senate and CIA Trade Blows

Central Intelligence Agency Seal

From Denny:  Let Putin and his cohorts nervously squirm after their latest Russian mob folly.  They really are on a back burner, slowly roasting to a tasty crisp.  After all, they broke Crimea so it's up to them to fix their mess.  Surely these thugs can figure out a few things on their own.  Meanwhile, let's catch up on the fun government wrongdoings here in America.

The whole world is laughing at this bar room brawl between Senator Diane Feinstein and CIA Director John Brennan.  It's the Sleaze trading barbs with the Slime.  At our house, we are roaring with laughter at every news story that pops up on the TV and web, much to our entertainment delight.  "The children are fighting again."

Of course, they are both technically right on some points of law and both very wrong about pretty much everything they put their hands to do, so, here's an idea:  lock up the CIA and the entire Senate, excepting Kirsten Gillibrand and Bernie Sanders.  Oh, please, throw away the key too.  That pretty much sums up the attitude of the American people and the world about this fight.  No one really cares what happens to either one of them.

Why on earth does Congress get angry at the CIA anyway?  They are the idiots that changed the CIA charter, expanding CIA powers and territory.  The CIA was once only legally allowed to operate on foreign soil but since terrorism caught the fancy of the last two presidents and Congress they now allow the CIA to operate at will and unregulated, and, most especially, on U. S. soil.  Now is it any real surprise they would spy on Congress and their investigations?

Ukraine: Many Sins of Putin Have Sealed His Fate

Vladimir Putin - Olympic Host

Come On, Really? Fake Crimea Parliament and Referendum? How World Is Fighting Back

From Denny:  First Putin appoints his Ukraine puppet government.  That same puppet then sets about to decimate down the 180,000 man Ukraine military to almost mere symbolic window dressing.

Then it's safe for Putin to invade and build his troops to massive strength to overwhelm the Ukraine military remnants that have been reorganized to a level of 6,000 combat ready veterans for a National Guard. Remember, back in the 1994 treaty, Ukraine gave up its Soviet nuclear weapons, and, rightfully so, expect from the world more than just lip service and token sanctions against Russia.  With 200,000 Russian troops on their eastern border, Ukraine only has 41,000 infantry total remaining to defend themselves.  Their air force is outnumbered 100 to one.

Putin's most significant latest stupid move was to chase off the original regional government in Crimea.  He arbitrarily appointed his own yes men once his initial 16,000 armed masked men stormed the region.  Those troops are now swelled to 41,000 to 61,000 armed masked men holding hostage the entire country of 46 million.  It's now widely believed that it was Putin who sent in snipers to create the Feb. 18-20 bloodbath in Kiev that removed from power his own chosen Russian puppet Yanokovich.  Putin needed an excuse to invade and invade he did...

Ukraine: God Hates Liars And That Means You Putin

From Denny:  Listen up, Darling Vlad; you cannot split the difference with God.  You were given a short list of simple tasks to do in this Ukraine situation to help you exit gracefully, and, still you chose only to do a small portion and just send diplomatic envoys for uncommitted talks?  Then you hold a press conference to issue lies and ultimatums?  Perhaps you really are delusional as Germany's Merkel muses.

You are unequivocally disobedient toward God.  You have not peeled back your armed and threatening military troops from encircling the Ukraine military bases as requested.  You were advised, then warned to pull them back, and, yet you chose to disobey that warning, wrongly thinking the stopped military exercises on the border was enough.  Well, it isn't and I'm not happy with that wimpy tepid solution.

You have refused to call back your armed pro-Russia agitators by claiming they are not yours to command.  Quit lying; everyone knows they belong to you.  You insult God by lying to Him.  God hates liars.  Do not continue to be of such a black heart toward God with your Trash Talk to the world...

From Denny:  Darling Vlad, you have so placed yourself and your entire Russian people and Russian military in to the international hurt locker.  My Russian Yard Cats are seriously screwing up this time, a royal screw up.

While I appreciate the raw courage of Russians, this is one of those times where undisciplined courage has not served them well.  This is exactly the area in which I've tried to counsel Russia to choose a wiser course against being too easy to provoke...

Ukraine: Is It Time To Bring Russia In From The Cold?

From Denny:  Which country needs yelling at first:  America or Russia?  Answer:  both of them.  As usual, the hotheads in Congress, the State Department and in the White House are screaming for blood and revenge against Russia about intervention in Ukraine.

And they did that long before the Russians even made a move in any direction, forcing a move by Russia in order not to look weak and unresponsive.  Could Western leaders and Obama play worse chess?

I'm sure the Russian counterparts are acting just as Stupid Is As Stupid Does for how they want to "react to the reactions" from the Western governments, yelling their unwise heads off too.  Men. This is one of those times when you are all proving to be most annoying.

Enter my fellow journalists around the world who have stoked this tense situation and you have a real mess on your hands.  Too many media outlets are out there taking advantage of a serious real life situation in order to garner more media share for financial profit.  You just don't go around proclaiming this situation between America and Russia is suddenly the beginning of The Cold War, Part Deux.  It isn't part two of anything, you morons....
