    Obama ain't sending troops anywhere Al. He's not invading shit. Will you say the same thing when Russian tanks roll toward Kiev?

      propaganda from the west is just as bad as the propaganda from the east, if not moreso.

        •  Relative to how this all started and why, yes, at (0+ / 0-)

          least.  I give the strong edge to the US propaganda machine, it's much bigger, stronger, and back by more money.  And it's had much more practice.  It's called War Propaganda, just like back in the day with the Cold War.  That's why we're seeing the neolibs and neocons on the same page and Madeleine Albright, Henry Kissinger, and Zbignew Brzezinski on TV.

            Russia is to believed as much as the western media, even if they invade a country. Never mind Pussy Riot, anti lgbt violence codifying laws, a very real war on journalism and all that is Putins Russia.
            It is equal to us, and Obama by implication.
            Same thing right?
            I want everyone to chime in, same thing right?

            •  Oh come on man. Nobody's saying Putin is a (0+ / 0-)

              good guy or Russia.  Did you go thru the Cold War?   I did from 1955 to 1990.  I don't want to go thru another one, or have my kids and grandkids go thru one.  That's what this is all about, it's about global supremacy and control of resources.  The Ukrainian people are caught in the middle, like the Syrians, like all of us, of the geopolitical game called the Grand Chessboard.  We need to stop all of them and that includes our own government and Russia's.
