Handy Hint # 1 Whenever the mainstream media spins a single narrative on any big issue, be skeptical, and seek the truth somewhere else.

By F. William Engdahl

The events in Ukraine since November 2013 are so astonishing as almost to defy belief.

A legitimately-elected (said by all international monitors) Ukrainian President, Viktor Yanukovich, has been driven from office, forced to flee as a war criminal after more than three months of violent protest and terrorist killings by so-called opposition.

His “crime” according to protest leaders was that he rejected an EU offer of a vaguely-defined associate EU membership that offered little to Ukraine in favor of a concrete deal with Russia that gave immediate €15 billion debt relief and a huge reduction in Russian gas import prices. 

Washington at that point went into high gear and the result today is catastrophe.

A secretive neo-nazi military organization reported linked to NATO played a decisive role in targeted sniper attacks and violence that led to the collapse of the elected government.

But the West is not finished with destroying Ukraine. Now comes the IMF with severe conditionalities as prerequisite to any Western financial help. . .

When Protests and Violence Are Important to the Media
By Nate Singham
It is worth comparing the extent of press coverage to protests of similar importance next door to Venezuela.

 By Chris Ernesto 
US quietly partners with neo-Nazis in Ukraine, fascists in Egypt, and al-Qaeda in Syria.

Imagine if protesters – supported by Russia – established an encampment in front of the US Capitol, threw Molotov cocktails into government buildings, fired guns at the police, and demanded that the US government relinquish power.

Obviously, the response from the US government would not be peaceful and there would be a loud call for war on Russia.

What if there were demonstrators in front of the White House who announced their events on Facebook by saying that members of congress should be incapacitated by having their knees smashed? Or if those same protesters posted YouTube videos saying that buses going into Washington should be set ablaze by dousing the roads with gas and diesel in the hopes of burning all the passengers inside?

Certainly, every US government official would demand the protesters be immediately arrested and charged with terrorism.

And what would happen if Islamic fundamentalists who had pledged allegiance to al-Qaeda began to bomb police stations and schools across the US?

Clearly, the US government would punish the responsible parties, and probably the countries in which they received training.

These things aren’t happening in the US, but they are occurring in Ukraine, Egypt and Syria by people who are funded, supported, encouraged or tacitly approved by the United States government. . .
