1-Unbelievable stupidity and at the same time a blatant display of exactly the type of fascist thug government in Ukraine
I will update later, just had to post this bit of news
2- So why does the US have one drone, maybe more, flying over Crimea?In Kiev, the Ukrainian parliament has voted to dissolve the Crimean parliament.
The drone was flying at about 4,000 meters (12,000 feet) and was virtually invisible from the ground. It was possible to break the link with U.S. operators with complex radio-electronic” technology, said Rostec in a statement quoted by Agence France-Presse.
Rostec said the alleged U.S. drone fell “almost intact into the hands of self-defense forces.”
The Russian arms and technology group said it had manufactured the equipment used to down the aircraft, but did not specify who was operating it.
“Judging by its identification number, UAV MQ-5B belonged to the 66th American Reconnaissance Brigade, based in Bavaria,” Rostec said on its website, which also carried a picture of what it said was the captured drone.

The Crimean government is urging Ukrainian commanders to allow their troops to vote in Sunday’s referendum. After a string of broken promises and paltry wages for all the the most senior officers, Kiev cannot count on their vote.

Social conditioning refers to the sociological process of training (like animals) individuals in a society to respond in a manner generally approved of by the society in general, peer groups within society and by the elites who manipulate the society to their benefit and gainYes, I added the part about the elites because that is a fact of social conditioning, the one wikipedia doesn't want to mention
Social conditioning at work: Mentioning Hitler makes Americans more willing to intervene in Ukraine- or anywhere for that manner. Which is why the Hitler card gets played repeatedly.
I am so sick of the Hitler meme- whenever I hear, or read it, I immediately ignore the mind virus so it will stop spreading
Mentioning Hitler also tended to increase the percentage of Americans who favored sanctions, economic aid, providing weapons to Ukraine, and intervening militarily —
