Picture Perfect? US State Dept publishes 'evidence' of Russian 'involvement' in Ukraine

Published on Apr 22, 2014

Pictures -- according to the US State Department -- prove Russian involvement in eastern Ukraine. The 'evidence' as the State Department calls them, show people taking part in seizures of admin buildings in the region. These same individuals involved in operations in Georgia in 2008, according to the State Department. Spokeswoman Jen Psaki came under fire over those photos during her last briefing. RT.

If I don't tell the truth I will get to keep my high paying job and drive my expensive car and sip latte with my friends.

Screw the lives of others as long as mine is ok. She said.

Here's the important question: what do 'the people' want

The Ukraine situation points out the central absurdity of centralized "government".

Ukraine - like the US - really is a country where the will of 'The People' really would be better suited by a splitting up of the country. Specifically, the eastern portion of the country regards themselves as ethnically Russian (it is an ethnicity and a language and NOT just a country).

Isn't it the fundamental founding principle of the US (explict and implicit in the Declaration of Independence) that people have the right to live under a government which actually represents THEIR PREFERENCES AND PHILOSOPHY AND ECONOMIC SELF DETERMINATION?

Yes, it is.

By this standard neither the Ukrainian government nor the US government has any real moral or logical basis for restraining The People from forming (or joining) their own choice of government.

But what constitutes 'The People'? Ahhh; that's the rub.

As I said, on the eastern side of the Ukraine the vast majority of the people regard themselves as Russian; they speak Russian (which is not allowed under the Ukrainian government as an 'official language' because the majority of the FICTITIOUS ENTITY known as "Ukraine" does not regard itself as Russian at all and, indeed, arguably despises all things Russian.

So the people living in the eastern Ukraine have a right to self determination and at least a moral right (one people under God) to separate. What they do with their separation (create a brand new country or re-join their former country of Russia) should be up to them, shouldn't it?

But it is a majority issue and, as I said, majority is determined by where you subjectively (FICTITIOUSLY) draw the boundaries.

The US USED to work around this moral and logical conundrum in two ways:

(1) Nearly everyone at the founding was ethnically, philosophically (values and culture), and in terms of language, religion, and pretty nearly everything else quite uniform (with the notable exception of the slave population who weren't considered citizens but also, in the early days, probably weren't so numerous in any particular region to form a majority anyway.

(2) States had a HUGE amount of autonomy, which meant that at the beginning and for a considerable time thereafter The People could and did live under a localized set of rules which represented THEIR preference.

May I point out that neither #1 nor #2 is any longer even REMOTELY true in the US anymore?

The US has no real moral nor logical reason to exist anymore.

Let's not get into tangential debates. Should people be FORCED to live under a government which acts consistently and overwhelmingly against their personal preferences?

If so, then the Jews in Germany had nor moral right to complain about their being exterminated.

If not, then the people on the eastern side of Ukraine and in the US as a whole have a right to leave.

Tough nut to crack.

Government - especially a Centralized democracy/republic - is really a FICTITIOUS concept and a considerably absurd one at that.

Bill of Rights /Amendment X: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

Do you need a politician or judge to "interpret" those 28

She's right...

Nothing says sincerity more

Nothing says sincerity more than a 36yr old jock from W&M flipping pages of a book filled with canned responses.

They are really desperate to justify their propaganda.

No one with any sense believes a word these people utter. Every day that passes only makes them look more ridiculous so they become more desperate in their efforts to make themselves appear serious.

This woman has all the personal charm of a Nazi gauleiter.
