Ukraine’s Civil War Is Now Also a Guerilla War.
Southeast Ukrainians Promise to Kill the People that Obama Installed as Ukraine’s Leaders.
How Can This End Now? Did Obama Plan on Starting an Anti-American Guerilla Movement?
An increasing number of reader-comments and other communications from the bombed-out regions in Ukraine are promising to kill the team that U.S. President Obama installed in February to lead Ukraine, even if doing this will lead to the individual’s own death. Here is the transcript from a video by one such person, who is swearing to die fighting if he must, and his statement is the most detailed thus far:
Some people from the West Ukraine call me and tell me to ‘go to your Russia’. So I am answering that: there are graves of my ancestors since 1887 [here where I live in Ukraine] — I am at home [in Ukraine, and will not leave]! There’s a documentary about my grandfather Limar Nikolai Alexeevich … the hero of the Great Patriotic War (1941-45), a sniper [who killed Nazis]. And I am telling you [like he did] — on my land, I am going to have victory, or to die.
I am not running. I am not hiding. I am not covering my face [like many of Obama’s troops in Ukraine do].
You keep saying we are scum [the standard assertion from the leaders whom Obama placed into power]. But you — Taruta, Akhmenov, Poroshenko — are scum! You forget who made you oligarchs [aristocrats], who worked day and night … who grew wheat, who pumped oil and gas, which you were selling in millions of gallons [that made them billionaires]. You are the scum … who forgot about your people. You organized revolutions and did not even think about the people. You are showing only lies on the TV turning people into zombies, turning them against us. You, scum, send 18-year-old boys to their deaths threatening them by your guns [to go fight in the southeast or else be sentenced 15 years for refusing to join the Army].
So, even if we don’t get you — but I promise we WILL get you, or another of us will — you won’t have any peace, neither on earth nor in hell. I promise you that!
You are looking at me, and maybe even smiling, but something inside you is trembling. Get ready, slimes, we are coming after you. Even if we die [in the effort], people’s eyes will be opened. In all places, they will realize that those who died were mechanics, bakers, drivers, working people just like they are, differing only in that they spoke the Russian language. [Many western Ukrainians call them ‘Moscals’ and ‘Colorado beetles’ a crop pest that’s exterminated, and ‘kitsaps’ lmeaning like ‘niggers’ or ‘kikes’].
What would Lvov’s residents [a far-rightwing City] have said if for 20 years they had been forced to speak [only] the Russian language [the Obama team first proposed a law that only Ukrainian could be spoken in Ukraine, but it failed to pass].
What would residents of Chemovsky have said if their land were used for burying chemical waste [such as you are doing here in the east]? What would Vinnitsa’s residents have said if their children had been shot [as you have been doing to ours]? People would soon come to realize it and come to get you.
You are nobody and nothing without people, and no bank accounts will save you. …
I will be killing you with love [for your victims] — each one of you.
I have been promised a position heading a Court-Martial of you. …
A request to all other oligarchs, in the new democratic Ukraine that’s coming soon and that will be a region in the Russian Federation, your vast wealth that was privatized from former government property [and sold off to them at insider prices that cheated the public from the value of what was being handed out to these well-connected former communist party nomenklatura and their friends], it will be repossessed and will no longer enrich you, no longer divide this country into very rich and very poor. You will lose your illegal ownership of schools, hospitals, factories, etc., which will again become public property. … You will return the trade unions, pioneer camps, nurseries, and hospitals, remove your building sfrom nature preserves, and stop your shooting of endangered and rare species in your drunken hunts. You will clean up the rivers that you have fouled, and, if you do all these things willingly, you will be able to remain as full citizens of Ukraine, not as prisoners and criminals. But if you resist, you will be shot for your cruelty towards the citizens of this country.
Ukraine was already bankrupt from corruption when Obama took it over; and it received, on 1 May 2014, a $17 billion loan from the IMF (which is mostly a loan from U.S. taxpayers) to keep it going; and it will need an additional estimated $8 billion IMF loan to pay the next two years’ costs of “war, military revamp and reconstruction in the east” (subcontracted to NATO insiders); and: who will profit from this, and who will pay for this? Who supplies the money, and who gets the money? And is the price that the victims pay counted at all in this?
Hitler didn’t get away with his crimes, but Bush did and Obama has made sure of that. Will Obama pay for his crimes? Or will he instead get paid for them?
