Crimea For Russia US Action Illegal

In US on March 24, 2014 at 08:01

There is a lot of talk about the Occupation of Crimea by Russia and the referendum in Crimea to join The Russian Federation.

The West, led by, as usual by the US, followed ardently by the Third World Countries, have joined the Chorus and threaten the Russian Federation with Economic Sanctions and ostracizing of Russia.

“You just don’t, in the 21st century, behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped-up pretext”, he pontificated on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”_John Kerry, US Secretary of State

 

Who invaded Kuwait and Iraq?

I had a call from my grandson in Sweden and we got to talking about Crimea issue.

In tune with the common perception he expressed his opinion that Russia must leave Crimea.

Such is the disinformation by the Media that the History of Crimea is swept under the carpet.

Loot any hotspot of Terrorism or Territorial issues, you shall find Britain being the culprit for the present confusion.

Palestine,Sri Lanka,India,Pakistan.

They occupied these lands and when the conditions became too hot for them to handle, they complicated the issue by playing both sides of the coin and left the place in a mess to be sort out by what remained of a Country.

Before the Vote in the UN  for granting Statehood to the Jews, while leaving Palestine, Britain promised both the Arabs and the Jews Palestine!

Today none can sort the Palestine issue and in the process we have millions of Stateless people in Palestine.

In Srilanka they played the same game with the Tamils and the Sinhalese on the one hand and on the other among the Tamils of the North,of Estate workers and Muslims.

We know what has happened in Lanka and what is happening now.

India , a double game was played by inciting Jinnah and the animosity between India and Pakistan shows no signs of abating.

In Crimea they have done the same thing.

The history of the Crimean peninsula covers more than 2,000 years, with many different conquerors and settlers throughout time. In ancient times, it was the home of Cimmerians and Scythians, as well as the site of Greek colonies. The most important city was Chersonesos at the edge of today’s Sevastopol. Later occupiers included the Romans, Goths, Huns, Bulgars, Khazars, the state of Kievan Rus’, the Byzantine Empire, the Kipchaks, and the Golden Horde. In the 13th century, portions were controlled by the Republic of Venice and by the Republic of Genoa.

The Crimean Khanate, a state ruled by Crimean Tatars and generally subject to the Ottoman Empire, succeeded the Golden Horde and lasted from 1441 to 1783. The Khanate was conquered by the Russian Empire under Catherine the Great in 1783. From 1853 to 1856, the peninsula was the site of the principal engagements of the Crimean War, a conflict fought between the Russian Empire and an alliance of the French Empire, the British Empire, the Ottoman Empire, the Kingdom of Sardinia, and the Duchy of Nassau.

During the Russian Civil War, Crimea was controlled by the White Army. After they were defeated by the Red Army, Crimea became part of the Soviet Union in 1921 as Crimean Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic. In the Second World War the peninsula was occupied by Nazi Germany for several years.

In 1954, it was transferred to the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic within the Soviet Union. In 1991, it became part of independent Ukraine.

Crimea was once again a site of conflict in 2014, when the region reacted negatively to the Euromaidan revolution in Kiev and came under Russian Federation control. Ukraine continues to claim Crimea as an integral part of its territory.”

Britain’s Role in Crimean War.

 

Please check the British Archives on Crimea.

The Right to Sovereignty is based on three counts.

1.Those who have been living in the land for the most time.

2.In case of invasions, at the time of settlement, the one who has been occupying the place or if there is a contention with the one who happened to a winner in the War and,the one who held the place for a longer period of time, gets the land/Country.

3.As Democratic system has come into vogue, it is to be decided by a Referendum by the people of this country.

By the standard of having controlled Crimea more number of years after Romans nad Ottoman Empire, both are extinct now, Russia has the Right.

Most importantly the people of Crimea have voted for joining Russia.

“A fraction under 97% voted to cede to Russia, with a turnout of over 80% – an electoral enthusiasm of which Western governments could only dream.”

What is Illegal here?

The Illegality is with he US and those who nod with the US as if they have Parkinson’s for the their greed to get a foothold for Oil in Ukraine and other Territories nearby , including the Black sea.

Capturing Terrorist Live Video

In terrorism, US on February 11, 2014 at 07:28

It is knows that the US comes down hard on Terrorists.

But how hard ?

“Al-Libi, who had been wanted by the U.S. for more than a decade for his alleged role in the 1998 bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, was spirited from his Delta Force captors eventually to a Navy ship in the Mediterranean where he was believed to be questioned by the U.S. government’s High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group.

Al-Libi was then brought to New York to face terrorism-related charges. He has pleaded not guilty. Al-Libi’s attorney, Bernard Kleinman, told The Washington Post his client never swore allegiance to al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and was not involved in the embassy attacks.

The former special operations soldier who spoke to ABC News, who has been on similar “snatch” missions, said that the October operation was likely carried out by an eight- to ten-man team. Another source with knowledge of the operation said the men were disguised to appear like locals.

Al Qaeda Mushrooms Pose Serious Threat

In terrorism on January 29, 2014 at 17:22

Al Qaeda has long been a monolith, though operating as a Multinational Corporate.

It had a Central Command and the structures though cut off directly from the directly,had a strict Unitary structure.

No longer.

Al Qaeda Splits

Al Qaeda Cells

The Syrian Branch or the Franchisee of the Al Qaeda brushed aside  the instruction from to stay away  by Ayman al-Zawahri, the leader of Al Qaeda

It was the first time in the history of the world’s most notorious terrorist organization that one of the affiliates had publicly broken with the international leadership, and the news sent shock waves through the online forums where jihadists meet. In no uncertain terms, ISIS had gone rogue.

That split, in June, was a watershed moment in the vast decentralization of Al Qaeda and its ideology since 9/11. As the power of the central leadership created by Osama bin Laden has declined, the vanguard of violent jihad has been taken up by an array of groups in a dozen countries across Africa and the Middle East, attacking Western interests in Algeria and Libya, training bombers in Yemen, seizing territory in Syria and Iraq, and gunning down shoppers in Kenya.

What links these groups, experts say, is no longer a centralized organization but a loose ideology that any group can appropriate and apply as it sees fit while gaining the mystique of a recognized brand name. In short, Al Qaeda today is less a corporation than a vision driving a diverse spread of militant groups.

“Al Qaeda is kind of a ready-made kit now,” said William McCants, a scholar of militant Islam at the Brookings Institution. “It is a portable ideology that is entirely fleshed out, with its own symbols and ways of mobilizing people and money to the cause. In many ways, you don’t have to join the actual organization anymore to get those benefits.”

For policy makers and terrorism analysts, this has made it harder to define what it means to be “Al Qaeda” and to gauge and combat threats. In addition, disagreements over definitions of Al Qaeda have animated debates in Washington about the perpetrators of the 2012 attack on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, especially over the Benghazi militant group Ansar al-Shariah. Although intelligence agencies and the State Department do not consider the group an affiliate of Al Qaeda, some Republican critics of President Obama argue that its puritanical, anti-Western vision makes it one.”

The US has made it tough for Al Qaeda Central command to function effectively after Osama Bin Laden’s Death.

Armed with Data from Osama’s hardD rive, the Al Qaeda Cells have been immobilized.

To operate effectively, a minimum autonomy was needed.

When that was granted, the Franchisees began to assert themselves.

This causes even more serious concern as it would be difficult to identify the Groups which operate under Al Qaeda and becomes very tough in handling Terrorist threats.

US Used Black Babies As Alligator Bait

In US on January 13, 2014 at 20:11

News has surfaced that the US has used black Babies all Alligator Baits.

The US, a Champion of Freedom that preaches the World!

Alligator bait, also known as gator bait, is the practice of using little black children as bait to catch alligators. Some say it was done by white men during slave times in Florida and Louisiana and other parts of the American South.

Here is the most complete account of how it was done, coming from the grandson of someone who says he used to do it:

… the slaves who had babies they would steal the babies during the course of the day, some times when their mothers weren’t watching . … some would be infants, some would be a year old, he said some would be toddlers, he said they would grab these children and take them down to the swamp, and leave them in pens like little chicken coops.

They would go down there at night, take these babies and …. tie them up, put a rope around their neck and around their torso, around here, and tie it tight.

… they’d be screaming. … what they were doing would help them to chum the water. He said when they would throw the babies in tied to this rope, he said in a matter of minutes, he said, the alligator were on them. He said the alligator would clamp his jaws on that child, as a matter of fact once he clamped on them he was really swallowed, he said you couldn’t see anything but the rope!”
