They're sick and tired of International banksters, Rothschild's, and the NWO influence.

Expect more 'arab spring' type events in the future. I'm surprised it doesn't happen a lot more often.
The only countries that don't have a Rothschild centralized bank are

  • Cuba
  • North Korea
  • Iran

Are you seeing a pattern? Libya used to be on that list.

Looks like the shit's gonna hit the fan in Ukraine VERY soon! (again!)
Meh. Nothing we can do about it. Russians know it. Ukrainians know it. We know it. Putin wouldn't risk anything too big. His oligarch pals wouldn't make any money on it. And the Black Sea fleet base in the Crimea is the most important piece of real estate in the world to the Russians outside of Russia. No way they let it fall to a Euro-centric Ukraine. This is not terribly surprising.

As long as my boys don't have to go and clean shit up I don't care what they do. We lose to many good men because of stupid shit that happens all over the world. Then again when it does and they ask we go.

I would love to go to Africa and clean that shit up. Their killing women and children. I bet if there was oil near we would be there already. What I wouldn't give to be able to go over there and kick their asses. I can't take women and children getting raped and killed.

No, I think we're pretty much done with international intervention after spending all that time in Iraq and Afghanistan. If we didn't go into Syria or Libya we sure as hell aren't going here.

Putin needs Sevastpol and pipelines to Europe.
This. And we in America (and Canada) don't really understand the notion of ethnicity. The only native Americans or Canadians look like this guy:



In other parts of the world, borders mean less than one's ethnicity. That's why the Ukrainians and Russians are talking about "Slavs fighting Slavs" and so on. These are ancient identifiers that go back thousands of years. America and Canada are a couple of centuries old. Our governments define who we are as peoples. Not so in Europe.

Putin needs Sevastpol and pipelines to Europe. Conquest is eternal. Forget that and be conquered.
Putin needs a shirt.

And I'll conquest a Toledo boot in his borscht hole if he doesn't remember soon enough that Soviet global domination was a miserable failure.

The days of conquest for land is over. These are the days of conquest for oil and gas pipelines and reserves. Why does the US "help" the people of Iraq, but refuse to "help" the people of Darfur? If they find gas and oil in Darfur we'd be there droning people in a week.

Maybe not Darfur, but there is oil and gas in the new South Sudan.

Oil and gas are the only reasons we tolerate Alaska and Texas. ;)
