In the city of Aleksandrovsk, Lugansk region, on Thursday evening, 29, a battle broke out between representatives of the national militia and Ukrainian security forces. The battle was going on at one of the military units in which the unit of the National Guard of Ukraine is located. The shooting led to the detonation of ammunition located in the territory of the military unit. After the explosion of ammunition, the fight stopped.
The week was marked by militia battles in southeastern Ukraine (or the former Ukraine) with punitive detachments in Kiev. That is why most News somehow resembled real front-line reports. One of the cities of the southeast, to which the full-fledged phase of the battles spread, was Lugansk Aleksandrovsk. In this small settlement, militia units attacked a military unit in which the so-called national guards were stationed, who, as recent events show, are not at all inclined to fight, so to speak, in an open format. Here to inflict a “shot” from around the corner, to stab in the back — for the Nazi Guard — that’s it. And if it comes to the battle with a trained opponent who has correctly taken up positions, then the Nazi Guard may differ only in five-sparkling. Then the command has to come up with the most amazing fables, to the extent that it was not an escape, but almost an offensive "in the opposite direction ..."

Representatives of the so-called National Guard of Ukraine "corrected" information about the losses caused by the crash of a helicopter of the Ukrainian Air Force, shot down by the DPR militia. If acting The “president” Turchinov claimed that 14 soldiers were killed, then the national guardsmen counted the 12 dead. At the same time, the death of General Sergei Kulchitsky - the head of the department of combat and special training of the National Guard - is confirmed.
General Kulchitsky loved to take pictures with a contented smile in a combat helicopter in full outfit and automatic, aimed at compatriots. Such a typical Ukrainian national guard who decided that his brave appearance is the main component of the “success” of the punitive operation. However, the general and his “guard” clearly forgotten that while photographing “here,” someone uncovers MANPADS “there.”
In the March issue of the magazine "Expert" There was an article in which Kulchitsky was interviewed incognito. The following words are:
A general for whom a duel is unacceptable and terror against a civilian population is a suitable thing is a template of a heel. Was ...

Non-inauguration and non-aerated "president"
The newly-minted, but uninitiated, "president" of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko announced that Ukraine was refusing to continue buying gas from Russia. The reason for the demarche is the high price that does not suit Poroshenko. Between the lines in this statement of the extraordinary Ukrainian chapter, you can read the following: we refuse further purchases of gas from Russia, but not theft, because a reasonable Europe is not going to refuse to buy blue fuel from Gazprom.
First you need to decide on who Poroshenko is. Well, this is such a fighter with the Ukrainian oligarchy in the status of the main oligarch. He is the ex-secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, he is also the ex-minister of foreign affairs, he is the ex-minister of economic development and trade, he is the ex-chairman of the board of the Ukrainian National Bank. And now to the heap - a representative of the "glorious" bird-three Ukrainian presidents (Yanukovych, Turchinov, Poroshenko), who in the final protocol in the column "A Gift from a Friend of Barak" CEC drew 54,7%.
So this same Poroshenko announced this week that Ukraine does not need Russian gas at a contract price. Well, here obviously Petr Alekseevich did not agree: Ukraine does not need gas at all at any price. Ukraine needs free gas, and therefore it is stupid to enter into contracts, because the Square still gets into the pipe and pumps itself to gas as much as is needed - because Europe regularly supplies gas to Europe. And Ukraine spat on Hungarians, Bulgarians, Macedonians, Slovaks and other Young Europeans who find residual zilch at their ends of gas pipes ... But as if only this spit would not return to the "newly-elected" ...
If we had a radio, then for Pyotr Alekseevich, at the request of Gazprom, the song “Winter, Cold, Lonely Houses ...” would surely be heard. And in this song Peter Alekseevich would especially like slightly rehashed lines:
Do you hear footsteps? - this is the tread of winter ...
Yes, winter is not coming soon, but after all, Gazprom’s dreams always come true ...
Comments from our readers:
1. No one will provide Ukraine with reverse gas. This is a beaten Maidan dream. The same dreamy and Maidan, as the entry into Europe.
2. Reducing consumption is just wonderful. For a cow to give more milk and eat less, you need to milk it more and feed less.
3. Shale gas extraction is the death of ecology. It is clear that Poroshenko and his American owners do not care about the health of Ukrainian natives and the future of their children. No wonder the Americans every year more and more tense over the production of shale gas on its territory, but they love to develop it in the indigenous countries. And the most interesting thing is that the main deposits of shale gas are located in the Donbass, in Slavyansk, and in fact it no longer belongs to Ukraine.
4. Arrangements with American partners ... I remember that the Euromaidouns were waiting for American cruisers and aircraft carriers in the Black Sea, when Crimea was waving a palm. And where is the Crimea now? And where are the promises of American partners? And the construction of a liquefied gas terminal is two years. And it will be cold in winter.
What is the national guard fighting for?
The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine said that a detachment of supporters of federalization was able to penetrate the territory of one of the military units of the National Guard under Lugansk and during the battle seized the arsenal weapons. At the same time, the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine claims that the national guard soldiers “destroyed several attackers” and themselves suffered minimal losses - one soldier of the national guard was injured.
The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine declares that the National Guardsmen had to retreat only because the “terrorists” deliberately damaged the gas pipeline, preparing to undermine the entire military unit.
The National Guard is truly unique power units, which, according to ukroSMI, literally daily show examples of heroism and courage, but after demonstrating this very “heroism” for some reason, they often run away, hiding in the surrounding “folds”, leaving positions weapons, equipment.
It is a pity that today in this national guard there are still a lot of conscripts of the Internal Troops of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, whom Kiev is in no hurry to let go home, although the service life of the soldiers has long expired. Motivates this by saying that you need to make war for your Motherland. The term “for the Motherland” in translation from Novo-Ukrainian means “For new oligarchs instead of old ones”, “For the profitable business of Biden Junior”.

Nah! It was all wrong. "As a result of the successful ATO phase, in the course of a successful fight, destroying the terrorists who had broken through - Chechens and local accomplices from among the local homeless, the survivors of the National Guardian Army, replenished with 200 and 300 fighters, successfully and quickly retreated to previously prepared positions, leaving extra weapon that hindered successful, rapid movement. Some of the Gadeyans plunged into a helicopter and heroically blew themselves up in the air, thus confirming the high Great-Ukrainian spirit, the whole brutal nature of terrorists and separatists for the world community. SALA remaining heroes on the position! And then the lads are starving, the local population, freed from terrorists by mortar shelling their houses, for some reason does not want to feed them and even buy Parashen chocolate.
Courage to tell the truth
Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree awarding journalists of Russia Today and LifeNews TV channels Fyodor Zavaleykov, Oleg Sidyakin and Marat Saychenko with orders of courage "for courage and bravery shown in the performance of professional duty."
It is worth recalling that 9 in May, a freelance correspondent for Russia Today TV channel, Fedor Zavaleykov, received a heavy gunshot wound to the abdominal cavity during a firefight in Mariupol. Marat Saychenko and Oleg Sidyakin were captured by representatives of the SBU, thrown into a pit and threatened with execution "for coordinating the actions of the separatists." On the night of May 26, the journalists were released.
Some of our readers undertook a heated discussion on the topic of whether journalists are worthy of orders. They say, well, they arrived in Ukraine, well, “they took something”, “they took pictures of someone”, well, the SBU fell and spent a week in the dungeons or were injured - is there an order for it ...
Of course, it is nothing but telling the whole world the truth about what is happening in Ukraine today, presenting facts. The utter nonsense is to be at the epicenter of events, and not to sit on the couch with a beer and think about how “I would put everything perfectly on the shelves and put the caps of the Ukrainian army”. The utmost nonsense - to fulfill their professional duty, and not to look for a reason to withdraw.
Yes, of course, and Marat, and Oleg, and Fedor could work in their bright and well-equipped studios (offices) - and their employers, and their relatives would be calmer. But they did their duty.
Thanks to their reports and reports of their colleagues, the world sees the footage of today's Ukrainian reality: helicopters used by the Ukrainian army with UN symbols, shelling of the National Guard from artillery guns and mortars of housing estates, Ukrainian politicians lie that no referendum in the southeast made up 10 %
They went to the regions covered by the civil war not exactly for orders and medals, they just did their job - they did it professionally and effectively. Or courage is only automatic gunfire and RPG shots? .. Courage is also the ability to speak the truth in those conditions when they try to put the overwhelming interests of the Big Star Brother on the throat of this truth.

Ukrainian Iron Curtain
Nikolay Litvin, who heads the State Border Service of Ukraine, said that Kiev plans to introduce a reliable defense system on the eastern borders of the country. Lytvyn noted that this is not at all about the final closure of the border between Ukraine and Russia, but about creating a buffer zone.
Website fakecontrol.org offers “beware of false Russian news”
The text in small print: “Putin’s media is provoking a conflict between the West and the East in order to kindle a full-scale war in Ukraine. The population of Ukraine, on the contrary, demonstrates a high civic consciousness and resolutely rejects Russian myths about two different peoples in the country who are ready to fight with each other. Ukrainians are one nation, and it doesn't matter what language they speak and which regions they live in. ”
Ukraine, fenced off with a wall of mass anti-Russian hysteria and die-hardness, is seeking opportunities to establish additional elements of alienation from Russia.
And why, by the way, only the buffer zone? You can also think about the "Great Ukrainian Wall", which will isolate the state, aspiring to Europe, from "scoops", "vatnikov", "putinoids" and other "uncivilized". On top of the wall hold 54 (by the number of percent of Ukrainians who voted, entered into the final protocol of Poroshenko) barbed wire lines with voltage 3,5 billion volts (according to the approximate level of Ukrainian debt for gas) each. On the wall depict a graffiti in the form of a smile, and set the scarecrow in the form of rag Tymoshenko. Border arable land mined, cut down forests and also mine. Here it will be serious! Here it is, brothers, separatist!

Donetsk. Gateway to the sky
This week Donetsk airport turned into one of the hottest spots on the planet. Reports that the militia took the international aviation hub of Donetsk, began to come an avalanche along the lines of various news agencies. Within a few days, the airport passed from hand to hand, with the number of casualties on both sides estimated at least in dozens. There are a lot of civilians among the dead and wounded.
During the battle for the airport, Ukrainian security forces used Aviation, which, in fact, decided the outcome of the confrontation. At the first stage, the militia was located on the roofs of the airport terminals and took active steps to prevent Ukrainian combat aircraft and helicopters from launching missile and bomb attacks.
Donetsk airport has become a place of war crimes by the Ukrainian army. The military and the Nazi guards struck literally everyone who moves near the airport building. On May 28, several Orthodox believers came to the airport and began a procession to try to reconcile the warring parties. However, an air strike claimed the lives of peaceful citizens of Donetsk. Ukrainian military shot and funeral procession, which was located a few hundred meters from the airport. According to doctors, no less than 40 people died at the Donetsk airport. According to the unofficial version of the dead is going to hundreds.
Now Donetsk airport is under the control of Ukrainian security officials, however, representatives of the DPR declare that “the battle is not over yet”. At the same time, the same representatives of the DPR, for the first time at the official level, confirmed that on the side of the Donbas militia against the Ukrainian punitive and foreign accomplices of Kiev, Russian volunteers are also fighting. In the battles for the airport killed 33 Russians. Reportedly, their identities are established.
Until June 6, bans on flights through the Donetsk aviation hub remain in place.

Welcome to the USSR 2.0!
29 May - historical day. Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan signed a long-awaited agreement in Astana on the establishment of the Eurasian Economic Union. According to V. Putin, the three countries agreed to pursue a coordinated policy in the energy sector, industry, agriculture, and transport. There were many controversial issues, but, nevertheless, mutual understanding was found.
“Today we are together creating a powerful, attractive center of economic development, a large regional market that brings together more than 170 million people. Our Union has vast reserves of natural resources, including energy. It accounts for one-fifth of the world's gas reserves and almost 15 percent for oil. The troika countries at the same time have developed industrial, industrial base, powerful personnel, intellectual, cultural potential. The geographical position allows us to create transport and logistics routes not only of regional, but also of global importance, to tie up the large-scale trade flows of Europe and Asia, ”- quotes "First channel" Vladimir Putin.
Two other states, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan, have already been asked to enter the Union. Most likely, they will be adopted in the current year, since the EAEU will start functioning already from 1 in January 2015.
Welcome to life, EAEU! It is still early to celebrate the birthday - it will be January 1. But the fact that 29 May is now a historical date, and the State Department has already gnawed all the fingernails, no doubt.

Obama's sanctions are ridiculous.
The Eurasian Economic Union, in principle, is able to live and work SELF-CLOSED (by type of autarky: own production ensures its own consumption), moreover, with a fairly HIGH standard of living. It is enough to go to Belarus and make sure that there is no longer a “Soviet village”, but Europe, one in one, comparable to Poland, at least in terms of standard of living.
It is also very characteristic that the Eurasian Union is not even looking at the "underdeveloped Kyrgyzstan", but Israel is eyeing it (!!!) and starting next year it is possible to consider the membership of India.
They are afraid of the sound of water
The recent rejection of compromises during negotiations with the authorities of the Palestinian Authority has brought Israel problems in the military sphere. In particular, difficulties arose with Germany in the matter of obtaining subsidies for the purchase of new German weapons, and also with the United States in the matter of exporting Israeli missile defense systems.
The US administration has refused to allow the Israeli company Rafael to negotiate with Poland, South Korea and India on the supply of missile defense systems David's Sling and Iron Dome. Companies need to coordinate this issue with the Americans due to the fact that the US allocated 500 millions of dollars to develop the Iron Dome system, and the development of the David's Sling complex was carried out jointly with the American concern Raytheon.
Both systems are designed to intercept mid-range and short-range missiles of the Qassam type, which are used by the Palestinian Jihad and Hamas movements to attack South Israel.
And further. Berlin canceled subsidies for the purchase by Israel of four MEKO A200 corvettes from ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems. It was planned that they should cover about 30% of the total value of the contract - about 300 million dollars.
But this is not the last problem of Israel.
Under such a European affair, the leader of Hezbollah, Sheikh Nasrallah, made a video message. He stated that the "Israeli enemy" is alarmed and even scared.
On May 25, Nasrallah’s appeal was broadcast through large screens during a rally in Bint Jubail, where 20 lives for thousands of people. The named settlement is located within walking distance of the Israeli border. The appeal was recorded on the occasion of the 14 anniversary of the withdrawal of Israeli troops from southern Lebanon.
Nasrallah's words quotes Israeli "9 channel": “Our policy of deterrence is the only thing that can protect the Lebanese land, the Lebanese people, the institutions of power, the resources, the honor and the future of the country. We are improving our deterrent strength day and night, and this is worrying the Israeli enemy. We used to be afraid, but now those who are on the Israeli side are afraid. Now even the sound of water scares the Israeli soldiers. So don't be afraid of the enemy. ”
This, of course, is only a loud statement in a propaganda spirit typical of the East. However, as we see, the week for Israel was not the most pleasant.

Afghanistan is not interested in a show with Obama
The unexpected visit to Afghanistan by the President of the United States led to even more unexpected consequences.
Representatives of the so-called press pool at the White House were provided with a list of invitees to participate in a secret briefing at the Bagram military base. And in this list was ... the name of the CIA resident in Afghanistan.
Later, the press service of the White House, which had failed, attempted to correct the mistake retroactively and spread the “corrected” version.
And one more thing was done in retrospective America in retrospect.
In Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai refused to meet with Obama. He stated that he was ready to accept the President of the United States in his palace, but he was not going to leave for the US military base.
Subsequently, the American side, trying to save face, said that it was just in Obama’s plans that there was no meeting with Karzai.
Well, the United States continues to amuse the whole world with its incompetence and stupidity. Soon Washington will not have a single case on the first attempt.
"Military Review" proposes the White House to have a cine entourage. And from now on, every political event (speech, trip, etc.), in which the president or minister plays the main role, should be numbered as during the shooting: “1 take,” “2 take,” and so on, until finally as you want the director.

Syria will speak Russian
Sergei Stepashin, who today holds the post of head of the international cooperation association, says that all Syrian schools have officially switched to studying Russian as an obligatory element of the school curriculum (starting from the middle classes). At the same time, Sergei Stepashin said that the government of Syria adopted such a decision after the country was visited by representatives of the Russian delegation headed by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.
Previously, Syrian schoolchildren could learn Russian only as a second foreign language after compulsory English.
Speaking about strengthening the fraternal ties of Russia with Syria, it should be noted that this year Syria will receive from Russia 240 million euros. This money is the help that the Syrian state will direct to the solution of many social problems.

On May 26, the King of Thailand appointed General Prayut Chan-Ochu Head of the National Council for Peace and Order.
According to the RIA News" With reference to the Nation newspaper, the revolutionaries issued a statement through the military attaches in all Thai embassies abroad, explaining the reasons for the coup. As pointed out by the deputy spokesman for the Ministry of Defense of Thailand Vinnay Suvari, there are three reasons why the military decided to take power.
For these reasons, Colonel Suvari added something else. He explained that the proponents of democratic rights in Thailand "switched to the use of firearms, attacking the homes of citizens in the capital of the country."
It is still difficult to judge what the coup will lead to. One thing is clear - the United States and the EU are dissatisfied with the actions of the military.
According to "BBC", The United States suspended the allocation of military aid to Thailand in the amount of $ 3,5 million (of the total package of $ 10,5 million). Washington urged the military to restore civilian rule in the country. The White House also appealed to tourists, urging them to refuse to travel to Thailand. Finally, the US administration canceled non-essential visits to the kingdom of US officials.
US Secretary of State John Kerry said that "there is no excuse for what happened." France, Germany and a number of other states condemned.
Recall that after the presidential election of 2012, Mr. Obama made his first trip to Thailand, focusing on the Asian political situation on issues of the political situation, democracy and human rights.
B. H. Obama put it very clearly then, pointing out that Asia is his first trip after the presidential election. “And the first stop on this trip was Thailand,” Obama said further. - This fact is not an accident. As I have said many times, the United States is and remains a Pacific state. The Asia-Pacific region is the fastest growing region in the world. In this capacity, this region is of great importance in this century for our security and welfare, for the creation of new jobs and opportunities for the American people. "
That is why the United States so want "democracy" in Thailand. The American people must have “opportunities” in the region.
A few years ago, the White House chose the Asia-Pacific region as a strategic point of reference, where China is considered the unofficial adversary. Partly for this reason, Obama made a tour of Asia in November 2012, negotiating with "partners" and "allies."
And if some partner, instead of democracy, easily controlled from the White House, is shining a typical autocracy for Asians, the White House immediately threatens to freeze, sanctions and starts yelling about the infringement of human rights. And the White House immediately begins to sing along with a whole choir from Western Europe.
And now we will re-read paragraph 2 from Colonel Suvari: “The Thai military authorities have irrefutable evidence and compelling reasons for the coup and are going to demonstrate this evidence and the reasons to the international community in the near future.”
Do not go to the fortuneteller here: in the protests of the last ten months, one way or another, the unsightly role of the United States will be highlighted.

The king "appointed", but he would try to blather against anything.
Citizens of Russia need to abate these regularities. I hint at the consolidation in the Constitution of a “non-democratic” government of the country, but without a monarch. True, will the Russian security forces be able, if necessary, to throw off a lazy or stoned ruler?
Abkhazian opposition seemed to have little integration with Russia
In Abkhazia, restless. This week, the opposition, without meeting any resistance, took control of the administration of President Alexander Ankvab in Sukhumi. The incumbent has already agreed to dismiss the cabinet. But this is not enough opposition: she believes that Ankvab himself should give up power. And he does not refuse.
The talks with the president are being held by the chairman of the opposition “Forum of National Unity” Raul Khadzhimba and the head of the public organization of veterans of the Georgian-Abkhaz war “Aruaa” Vitaly Gabniya.
Ankvab gave the following description of what happened: “Legally, of course, this is an attempt to seize power by force by force”.
According to Gazeta.ru, the opposition accuses the president of avoiding negotiations. He is also blamed for the fact that he allegedly alone makes decisions on the distribution of budget funds that come mainly from Russia.
“There can be no sovereign country with two-thirds of the budget filled by subsidies from another state,” says Vitaly Gabnia. - The system of sole decision making led the country to bankruptcy, led to default. And it was at the time when Russia allocated 900 million dollars to support the statehood of Abkhazia, which were mastered at stadiums, in swimming pools and houses of culture according to the personal whim of the president. ”
In turn, supporters of the president note that there can be no talk of spending Russian funds at the whim of Abkhaz leaders: after all, the facilities for which Russian economic aid is spent are included in the plan agreed at the level of the intergovernmental commission on socio-economic cooperation.
Poet Vladimir Zantaria, one of the opposition leaders, explained Interfax the essence of the demands: “We are trying to bring order to our home, but I want to emphasize that relations between Abkhazia and Russia are sacred for us”.
“On the contrary, we blame, and this was said at the rally today, the current authorities of Abkhazia of insufficient integration with Russia,” he said.
And now - a few career facts from the biography of the central opposition leader Khadzhimba.
October 3 2004 was the year in Abkhazia, a presidential election was held in which Khajimba lost with a bang. Most of the votes were received by his rival Sergey Bagapsh. Khajimba did not recognize the election results and arranged a butch accompanied by the seizure of administrative buildings. In Abkhazia, they even decided to hold elections again. True, law enforcement agencies supported Bagapsh and the Council of Elders of Abkhazia. There was an opposition, which almost resulted in a civil war. Everything was settled in December 2004 using Russian mediators V. Kolesnikov and S. Baburin. Repeated presidential elections were held in January 2005. As a result, Bagapsh became president, Khadzhimba - vice-president.
On this high, but not the first, chair, our hero sat until 2009, until he himself announced his resignation. He created an opposition initiative group (FNE), and in the same year 2009 participated in the new presidential elections, which again lost to the same Bagapsh.
In May, 2011. Bagapsh died.
In August 2011, presidential elections were held. And Khadzhimba ... lost again! He scored less than twenty percent of the vote. Ankvab was declared President of Abkhazia, having received almost 55% of the vote.
Probably, Khadjimba will not calm down until he becomes president.

Republican project "Transparent Russia"
The United States decided to start a “Maidan” in Russia, for which purpose they are actively discussing in the Congress an initiative on the allocation of as much as thirty million dollars to democratization of the Volga, Siberian, Far Eastern and other spaces. With this money, America is going to build democracy in Russia by the 2017 year, that is, until the end of the reign of Mr. Putin. The media and blogs are already writing about the "overthrow of Putin."
Indeed, the so-called “Russian Aggression Prevention Act 2014” was recently introduced to the US Congress, which means “The Act of Preventing Aggression by Russia from 2014 of the Year”. If we turn to this quite official document, it will become clear: a whole range of sanctions is planned against the Russian Federation, and even the deployment of additional US troops on the borders with Russia. In addition, large-scale military exercises of NATO troops are expected - again, in the regions bordering the territory of our country.
Well, to frighten the teachings and the presence of the military near the borders - this has already become a habit among the powerful and is called "muscle play".
The main thing in the text of the initiative of the Republicans (among whom not the last place is occupied by the famous Mr. McCain) is not the teachings, but money. Money for the democratization of Russia.
In the “Russian Aggression Prevention Act 2014” financial resources were pledged: for 10, millions of dollars will be sent towards Russia in 2015-2017. on the “development of democratic processes”.
According to the draft, the state secretary should “step up efforts” to democratize Russia either by himself or “through non-governmental organizations. And then the list lists what should be spent 30 million dollars.
These, in general, fairly modest amounts should go to “improving democratic governance”, transparency, responsibility, rule of law, fighting corruption, strengthening the role of democratic institutions, political organizations and civil society organizations, US support for “independent media” in Russia , strengthening the activities of educational and cultural exchanges in the territories of the countries of the former USSR, expanding the technical possibilities for the Internet without censorship, etc.
Some representatives of civil society are probably already drooling. And representatives of democratic institutions are about to line up for millions in a lively queue. With the numbers ...
The bill, advanced by Republicans, has passed two readings and is already under consideration by the Congress Committee on International Relations. Meanwhile, the chances that the president will not sign him are quite large. First, in the US financial crisis. Secondly, Republicans to Barack Obama are not brothers of political faith. And McCain, one of the co-authors of the project, is indeed Obama’s constant critic and almost his enemy.
On the other hand, you can print millions. To allocate money to create a zone of chaos in the world - in our time for some people, this means strengthening the national currency. The dollar - after all, it’s not only the oil one, its second security is military force. This is spelled out in treaties with the Saudis and other Arabs, who in the 1970-ies. promised to sell their oil only for dollars, but in exchange for military protection.
By the way, the American president in recent days has become belligerent - almost more than ever. He quite seriously voiced American aspirations for peacekeeping and even threatened the “aggressors” with an army. And he began not from China, which has long been sharpening a tooth, but from Russia.
“A regional aggression that goes unpunished — in the south of Ukraine, in the South China Sea, or anywhere else in the world — will ultimately affect our allies and could draw our army in,” said Obama
In short, Barack Hussein Obama and the “hawks” from Congress once again made it clear to the world community who the hosts are on the planet.

Europe will warm Russia with gas
Recently, a supernova has been lit in the sky of American political neznak. In her light, the stars named George W. Bush and B. H. Obama quickly faded.
Jennifer Psaki (Jennifer Psaki, 1978 b.) Has been involved in politics since her early years - from 23 years. In the 2004 year, 26 years old, she had already replaced the spokeswoman in the election campaign of John Kerry. It would seem that there is where to take and experience, and competence. But Lev Tolstoy, who had read, according to Bunin's calculations, 14.000 books, and who dealt with kings and tyrants, for good reason believed that the most bad people were striving for power. To this we can add that the higher to power, the more stupid you will see. Today’s United States is a brilliant example.
Psaki is the public face of the Department of State, a figure personifying all of American foreign policy and reporting about it at frequent briefings to journalists from leading world media.
What does psaki report to the world? Why did it come to the fact that this lady in Russia was called “the princess of the circus” and Channel One? exaggerates the topic of the transfer of the 6th fleet Is the US “to the shores of Belarus” (sic), since Lukashenko, supposedly according to Psaki, is about to invade independent Ukraine?
Recently, speaking of referendums in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions, Jen Psaki explained to the assembled journalists: “The voting methodology raises strong suspicions, there are reports of electoral roundabouts, pre-filled ballots.” She also told about “voting children” and “voting for the absent”. Correspondent Matthew Lee ("The Associated Press") asked: "Excuse my ignorance, but what is an" electoral carousel "?" He received the answer: "I must admit that I just read this text."
Further Psaki noticed, slightly blushing: “I myself do not know what it is. I will check with my colleagues ... "
They asked at a briefing about a market economy in which Russia and Ukraine are participating. As is known, the first sells the second gas, and the second does not pay for it. The picture for the market economy is abnormal.
“The Russians say that they want to get money for the gas that they have already supplied to Ukraine,” said M. Lee said. “You agree that this is the basis of normal commodity-money relations?”
Trying to evade a direct answer, but having suffered in that fiasco, Psaki said: “Matt, I’ll be happy to figure this out when I return to my office.”
But a much more interesting statement psaki, which quoted Channel One:
As you can see, one of the mottos, invented by the brilliant seer Orwell for a dark totalitarian future, in 2014, psaki was successfully implemented. “Ignorance is power”!
It's time to ask the question: why are these monstrously incompetent people running politics in the US and voicing it, not being embarrassed?
But the fact is that a career is contraindicated for an intelligent person. This is not a guess. This has long been proven by scientists. Half a century ago, the psychologist Edwin Giselli empirically proved that the most significant results in management are achieved not by people with the highest level of intellectual development, but by owners of average intellectual abilities.
Other, more recent, research, usually correlated with the so-called theory of human capital, found that wealth is not combined with the mind. It turned out that the family-economic background (that is, relationships, kinship and family status), as well as the duration of training associated with the above-mentioned “background” (with no money at Harvard or the oldest college of Wilhelm and Mary) you can’t stop, and without a crust of a prestigious university, they are unlikely to be allowed into the White House). As to their intellectual abilities, they, according to the researchers, had the least impact on the amount of individual income.
So do not be surprised at what psaki says. Both “background” and “average intellectual abilities” are affected.
What remains clever in this life?
Right. Woe And poverty.
