Does the CIA plan a Syrian style terror war in Ukraine?  
“Only fools believe what they are told, when it is clear that much else is being hidden.”…Anonymous

Someone decided to pull the plug on the four-way Ukraine talks on planned for this week. Kiev has decided to invade its own country. We all knew that a pro-referendum movement in the East Ukraine was a certainty.
The Kiev coup government in their early braggart days were quite open about their plans for suppressing the Russian population in the East. They began by immediately banning the language in state affairs. But that was just the start of the race to tear the country apart.
Dimitry Yarosh was the loudest loose cannon, and an MP to boot. As leader of the 15,000 Right Sector nationalists responsible for much of the violence in the Kiev coup, he was organizing the consolidation of the 50,000- to 60,000-strong nationalists into a new National Guard, where they would have access to heavier weapons and get on the public payroll.
He further stated that he was seeking the Interior Minister job so he could use his nationalist mobsters to eliminate their opponents. The Russians in the East were scared to death. We have not forgotten how quiet all the Western coup-supporters were about pushing for an immediate outside investigation of the coup violence on the Maidan, including who was behind it. US Intel obviously knew, but they weren’t telling.
We have all watched a fairly non-violent people’s revolt unroll over the past few days, with protestors and local police being very careful to avoid casualties. Some units have even mutinied and gone over to the people, including one Berkut unit wearing St. George’s ribbons, who was happily cheered by the crowd as they returned to their headquarters. Missing from view were the nationalist street toughs, like we saw in Kiev last month savagely attacking unarmed riot police.
We also saw them using tactics in which they have obviously been trained. Yet, there were no cries from the West to find out who was behind this violent takeover by the anti-Yanukovich forces. Later came the email intercepts of false flag attacks being planned out of the American embassy in coordination with the coup-government… to blame on the Russians.
A diplomatic focus for decreasing tensions had already been decided upon by Kerry and Lavrov. First up was a new constitution. But things began to get dragged out to give Kiev time to try to consolidate power, which would give it the upper hand in negotiations. Kiev had even decided to bring the European gas supplies to a crisis by not paying a dime for their current supplies, hoping to trigger a cut-off that the West could turn into a Russian-bear propaganda coup. The US must have given its OK to do this.
That did not work out. Putin counter-attacked masterfully with his carefully crafted letter to Russia’s 18 European customers that they had better focus more attention on Ukraine’s current gas bills, as Russia was not planning to suffer alone, but preferred to make that a group activity.
Despite a continuing barrage of hyped accusations from Kiev and the US State Department about the pending Russian invasion of Ukraine, the West was losing the propaganda war, outside of those who were backing the coup. NATO’s General Breedlove killed his credibility with his attempt to use satellite images of last year’s Russian/Ukraine military exercises, and claiming they were proof of a current invasion force at the ready. Obama made it worse by not asking for Breedlove’s resignation.
The huge sanctions-hype investment by Washington and a few Euro allies was also crumbing. The EU business community, who has been longtime customers of Gazprom, wanted no part of it. Western corporate media downplayed the huge trade surplus the EU had with Russia, where all the monies paid for Russian gas funded the $110 billion surplus and all the export jobs that went with it. No one really wanted a trade war but the dummies in DC. Imagine that.
So we fast forward to Ukraine’s going from a moderate response and negotiations with those leading the referendum push, to announcing they would pursue a military solution. And they said this AFTER Lavrov warned that any military action would threaten the four-party talks for this week.
What had changed did not take long to discover. Although the CIA denies that John Brennan was in Kiev, it is apparent that he was. He held meetings not only with the government, but also the security people… and a good number of them, too… which assured that word would leak out as it did. The communist MP members were quick to hear about it, and the former regime security heads still have inside connections and were filled in on the talks.
One can assume that Russian Intel also had long ears, as they would not have put Yanukovich out front to carry the ball on spilling the beans to the media on Brennan’s visit. I would not be surprised to see another phone call intercept on YouTube this week — the smoking gun kind.
But I sense some panic with Brennan risking a trip to Kiev, which he must have known could not be kept secret. I have to expect that the US feels it must bait Russia into coming into East Ukraine to stem the credibility drain on US prestige. Brennan had to have gone there to guarantee that if they could get a war going, then the US could jump in militarily, and that would trigger the major sanctions they really want against Russia.
And here are more of the clues. The mutinies among the security forces in the East must have rattled Kiev, even though they should have expected it. After all, it is a majority-Russian region. We next heard Right Sector’s Dimitry Yarosh is calling up his “army” to get ready to purify the East.
Then President Turchinov strangely claimed he is deploying a reservist regiment of 350 to begin operations. Where, I ask, are the regular army units? Interim Interior Minister, Arsen Avakov, has announced the creation of special Interior ministry units based on “civilian components” all across Ukraine, in order to tackle separatist moods.
On his Facebook page Avakov says Kiev is ready “to attract” 12,000 into the new force that will be given arms, equipment and supervision, and he further claims that East Ukraine will get the first taste of this unit. Does that sound like he is deploying Army units to you?
Are these 12,000 Yarosh’s Right Sector thugs, or another group in addition to them? Did Brennan promise to fly in some of the CIA terror proxies they have stashed all over, like the Chechens who would be close by, and a sure bet for baiting the Russians?
Color me suspicious, but I smell some pre-staging here for two possibilities. The Army is being held back in reserve as these disposable throw away troops and “special units” are being move forward. Is Kiev worried that if the army were deployed it might go over to the people, taking their heavy weapons with them? And could it be a good way to get rid of Right Sector in the process?
Has the CIA, in punishment for Russia’s support for Syria, decided to bring a Syrian-style terror war to East Ukraine to draw the Russians into a long fight using America’s new favorite weapon, terrorist proxy troops?
Who will be paying for this war? The IMF has not funded it. NATO doesn’t want to fund anything. So that leaves the American taxpayer and the Pentagon, who are already under a squeezed budget. But with a war-happy Congress, how hard do you think it would be to get deficit appropriation voted through Congress… a few hours maybe?
Getting a shooting conflict going would also fix another problem which the new coup-government would like to avoid now… having an election. They are already being seen as the gang that can’t shoot straight, and their Western-puppet credentials have now been stamped in public. What I am seeing here is a group that only sees a future for itself as an occupation force in their own country… a sad fate for the long suffering Ukrainians.

This is an interesting premise.Trigger a cold war to make it easier to annex Europe
Is Europe going to be annexed (taken over, subordinated, broken) so willingly. Haven't used this resource for some time... for no reason other then they have gone unnoticed by myself. But this article, at this time, caught my eye. Keeping in mind the EU bureaucracy in Brussels fails to benefit the European populace.

Perhaps a rebranding will take place, but, the product will be exactly the same. NATO's Islamic fighters more commonly known as Al Quada. That is the reality of what/who Canada will be assisting. Canada is prepared to further aid the the thugs terrorizing Syrians.
Therefore Canada is preparing to assist Al Qaeda terrorists

Signing of Ukraine-Slovakia memorandum on gas reverse flows uncertain
— Ukrainian minister
The memorandum drafted by Slovakia implies that supplies will begin as soon as the necessary technical conditions are created
KIEV, April 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine can initially receive up to 3 billion cubic meters of European gas via Slovakia, parliament-appointed Ukrainian Minister of Energy and Coal Industry Yuriy Prodan said. Ukraine held talks with the European Union on this issue on April 15, Prodan said on Wednesday.
“There are some positive signs because the European Commission has started studying our suggestions regarding reverse gas supplies and their increase. This will not require serious technical steps,” he said.
The European Commission will study Kiev’s proposals within a week. In the meantime, Slovakia “should prepare necessary legal documents”, Prodan said.
He could not say when a memorandum on reverse gas supplies would be signed. “We expect the European Commission to consider our proposals. Then we’ll make the decision,” Prodan said.
The memorandum drafted by Slovakia implies that supplies will begin as soon as the necessary technical conditions are created. Slovakia is prepared to supply up to 8 million cubic metres of gas per day and about 3 billion cubic metres per year, Prodan said.
Reverse supplies can begin from November 1, 2014, he added. “They (Slovakia) later suggested increasing gas supplies up to 20 million cubic metres per day,” Prodan said.

Right Sector weapons depot discovered in Odessa — local media
ODESSA, April 16. /ITAR-TASS/. An arms depot owned by the Right Sector radical ultranationalist organization was discovered on Wednesday in the southwestern Ukrainian city of Odessa, local media reported.
The depot contained rounds of ammunition, cold weapons, clubs, Molotov cocktails, firecrackers and other munitions.
It was discovered by representatives of Odessa Cossacks, who help law enforcement bodies to ensure order on the streets. They called the police. The Odessa department of the Ukrainian Interior Ministry confirmed the report on the search, but provided no details.
Earlier, supporters of Kiev authorities declared “full combat alert” in connection with an “attack on the city” allegedly being prepared.

Crimea can raise oil, gas condensate output up to 600,000 tons per year
— experts
MOSCOW, April 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Production of oil and gas condensate in Crimea may be increased by five to eight times as compared to the level of 2013 and reach 400,000-600,000 tons per year in the future, experts of the Russian foundation “Institute of Energy and Finance” underlined in a report drafted for the Russian president.
According to experts, Crimea’s oil and gas condensate output was at 76,000 tons in 2013.
The growth of oil and gas condensate production to 400,000-600,000 tons per year will allow the region to meet domestic demands, while oil processing may be organized in the Krasnodar Oblast, experts said.
Moreover, Crimea’s gas extraction may be increased considerably already in the next few years - it may reach three billion cubic meters in 2015, which will make it possible to cover the current level of consumption and create about 0.6-0.8 billion cubic meters surplus. The surplus may be used for the development of heating power generation. Now, Crimea almost 80% depends on electricity flows from Ukraine’s unified power grid.

Saker - Ukraine SITREP April 16, 10:50 EST (Ukrainian civil war day 2)
It is still a little early to call this day over, especially considering the time it takes for the information to seep out of the eastern Ukraine and make it to the Internet. Furthermore, we have to be extremely cautious with the news not only because truth is the first casualty of war or because all the information sources have a vested interest in getting out the "right" information "correctly" presented, but because today, just as yesterday, the main characteristic of the situation in the Ukraine is complete, total, chaos.
With these caveats in mind, we can still say the following with a strong degree of certitude:
Something really amazing happened today in Kramatorsk. It appears that a column of Ukrainian paratroopers entered the city unopposed, some of them put Russian flags on their Infantry Fighting Vehicles (IFV), others Saint George ribbons. When they made it to the city center they were greeted by the civilians who brought them flowers and food. Then, some of them apparently left, possibly on their IFV though that is still unclear to me. It appears certain that 6 IFV of the BMD-2 types (Airborne IFV) were given to the local self-defense forces. It is unclear to me what happened to the crews. Some reports say that they purchased civilians clothes and returned to their base, but that makes absolutely no sense. Strictly speaking, handing over their IFV to "terrorists" in a "battle situation" could get them summarily executed on the spot. At the very least this should land them in front of a court martial. So my guess is that the crews either deserted completely, or stayed around and join the locals. What is certain is that the local defense forces now have 6 armored vehicles armed with the formidable 30mm 2A42 multi-purpose auto-cannon which can tear into pretty much anything short of a main battle tank. The BMD-2 is also *ideal* for urban combat: relatively compact, well armored, highly mobile and with that formidable gun (which can shoot armor piercing rounds), it is just about the best kind of vehicle to use inside a city (it also has a machine gun and a guided anti-tank weapon).
By the way, these units came from the same 24th Airborne Brigade I mentioned yesterday, probably one of the few more or less well trained units in the entire Ukrainian military.
Another less noticed event was an attempt by unidentified paramilitaries to attack or break through one of the checkpoints near the city. The attack failed, the number of casualties is still undetermined. The locals blame the Right Sector thugs for this one.

Russia to seek Hague tribunal trial of Ukrainian ultranationalists - report
A majority party MP has asked Russian investigators to prepare an official letter to the ICC describing crimes by members of Ukrainian nationalist groups - including the infamous Right Sector - and asking they be recognized as extremist.
The author of the initiative, MP Mikhail Markelov (United Russia) has told Izvestia daily that both the Right Sector and another mass Ukrainian nationalist organization, UNA-UNSO, have long and rich histories of involvement in various military conflicts.
These included the conflict in Chechnya, the brief war in South Ossetia and several wars in the Balkans in which Ukrainian radicals fought on various sides, such as with Croatians, Serbs and Albanians, the parliamentarian holds.
Russia has already put Right Sector leader Dmitry Yarosh on its wanted over his participation in combat in Chechnya on the terrorists’ side. Another well-known member, Aleksandr Muzychko, was under investigation as well until he was killed by Ukrainian police in March this year.
In 2009, Russia’s top federal law enforcement agency the Investigative Committee published a report claiming that the number of Ukrainian gunmen who fought against Russian peacekeepers and military in South Ossetia was about 200.
Markelov told the newspaper that in his view this record was enough to make the International Criminal Court in The Hague issue a verdict recognizing the nationalist groups as extremist and ensuring an international status of political outcasts for them.

SPLC Fostering More Hate in Bundy Ranch Article
Jack Mullen
Although tyranny, because it needs no consent, may successfully rule over foreign peoples, it can stay in power only if destroys first of all the national institution of its own people. - Hannah Arendt
The mass murder committed by the regimes of Stalin, Mao, Hitler and many others was made possible not just by the willingness of the “enforcers” to carry out their orders, but also by their victims’ imagined obligation to obey “authority,” and by the belief held by almost all onlookers that they should not interfere with the “the law” being carried out. - Larkin Rose, The Most Dangerous Superstition
The Southern Poverty Law Center recently wrote an article published in their “Hatewatch” blog entitled “Antigovernment ‘Patriots’ Gather Near Scene of Nevada Rancher’s Dispute Over Cattle Grazing Rights“. The article is characteristic of this organization which makes a living by agitating situations with disinformation - attempting to foster hate for profit.
In the article, the SPLC attempts to associate Cliven Bundy, his family and supporters with anti-government freeloaders ‘illegally’ grazing cattle on government property. Instead of analyzing the information from the perspective of objectivity, the SPLC immediately begins with factually false agenda positioning accusations - identifying the article as a polarizing hit-piece against Americans supporting the Constitution, Common Law Property Rights and States Rights.

Mega oil field discovered in southern Russia
A new oil field with roughly 300 million tons of oil and 90 billion cubic meters of gas has been discovered in the Astrakhan region of Russia.
“The field’s reserves are unprecedented, this discovery confirms the high potential of the Astrakhan region in terms of these major discoveries,” Sergey Donskoy, Russia’s Natural Resources Minister said on Wednesday.
The field, called “Velikoe” (The Great) was discovered by the AFB Oil and Gas Company, which will likely seek out larger partners to develop it.
Two likely candidates are Rosneft, Russia’s state-owned and largest producer, and Lukoil, the country’s second biggest producer.
