Ukraine coup junta dissolves Crimean Parliament- Drone down & more

 I will be updating when possible, be sure to check back!

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
In Kiev, the Ukrainian parliament has voted to dissolve the Crimean parliament.
2- So why does the US have one drone, maybe more, flying over Crimea?
Drone down!

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.

3- Ahead of Crimea vote, Ukraine officers express pro-Russia sentiments
 Yet in the warren of tiny one-room apartments where military officers and retirees live, waiting decades for the larger apartments promised to them, it is hard to find anyone who doesn’t intend to vote for Crimea joining Russia.
 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.

4-  Can we say social conditioning? What is social conditioning and why am I making mention of this phenomena?
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 gain
Yes, 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 —


  1. They can't help themselves, Pen. They will be brought down by their own natures. Hubris is part of the territory of fascism.

    1. hey james
      Agreed hubris is intertwined with fascism. It's just all so blatant, but, then it has always been. For those with eyes to see.

  2. 1., what?

    what is OSCE up to in Ukraine?
    'The wife of Pavel Gubarev told LifeNews that there is indeed strong support for Russia in Donetsk.
    "Yesterday, there was news that the OSCE observer mission arrived in the city and that they along with local students were planning to hold a small rally to show that the people in Donetsk support Ukraine's integration with Europe and that there is no support for Russia at all,” Ekaterina Gubareva told LifeNews. “This deeply angered us because it is not true! We have decided to organize our own peaceful rally to go out and tell everyone that there is more of us and we support the referendum!”'
    a EU observer mission holding a rally? the same OSCE tried to gain entry into Crimea before the vote, but were rebuffed...wisely

    1. brian I have been reading about so many demonstrations backed by nato nutters, my head is in a whirl

  3. U.S. operators with complex radio-electronic” technology

    It's not that complex to steal a drone.

    1. I did not know that jo- but then I am not techie, in the least
      and I admit it!

  4. I think the 'dissolution' of the Crimean Parliament is so the coup leaders can have a figleaf of a argument (or talking point) for not only disregarding the inevitable result of the referendum but also as a reason to attack the Crimeans with their patsie, 'on the spot' fascists (with a few Blackwater types mixed in with the crowd). This will happen as soon as the referendum is held and it will lead to yet another embarrassment for the neocons.

    1. I think you are correct
      'dissolving' the parliament can make the coup regime's claims of illegitimacy seem more sellable

    2. I am actually expecting terror attacks, attempted or successful, in Crimea to prevent people from going to the polls

    3. Me, too. Perhaps a car bomb or three outside polling booths

  5. I should've of add something like this.

    I'm not tech either but a close friend is and after he explained it was pretty simple. I'm sure we'll see it happening over Amerika once the start to use them here.

  6. Are you, the author, as stupid as you sound or are you getting paid by the Kremlin?

  7. 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.

    'Reductio ad Hitlerum, also argumentum ad Hitlerum (Latin for "reduction to" and "argument to" and dog Latin for "Hitler" respectively), is a term coined by conservative philosopher Leo Strauss in 1951.[1] According to Strauss, the Reductio ad Hitlerum is an informal fallacy that consists of trying to refute an opponent's view by comparing it to a view that would be held by Adolf Hitler or the Nazi Party.
    According to Strauss, Reductio ad Hitlerum is a form of ad hominem or ad misericordiam, a fallacy of irrelevance, in which a conclusion is suggested based solely on something's or someone's origin rather than its current meaning. The suggested rationale is one of guilt by association. Its name is a variation on the term reductio ad absurdum.
    Reductio ad Hitlerum is sometimes called "playing the Nazi card." According to its critics and proponents, it is a tactic often used to derail arguments, because such comparisons tend to distract and anger the opponent'. (Wikipedia)

    I have a hearty laugh watching the "Reductio..." turning against the Maidanese.

    Have one too,

    1. hey wiz oz
      you think it will be turned against them?
      should be interesting?
      When I hear or see anything comparing Hitler to whomever I just go right on past it.............

  8. The hacking of the drone and the subsequent hacking of NATO's websites is a warning to NATO not to do anything foolish. Russians have control over the operating systems of NATO! That was clear even in 2008 when (less glamorized) the swift military decision was made possible by the disabling of the electronics of the Georgian army. One should remember the "Estonian cyber-attacks" of 2007 also and the Estonian Spy scandal of 2008.

    1. "The hacking of the drone and the subsequent hacking of NATO's websites is a warning to NATO not to do anything foolish. Russians have control over the operating systems of NATO!"

      Really?! I had no idea. And don't recall the Estonian cyber attacks or the spy scandal
      if you had a moment could you leave me something to read up on?
