Sashko Bily Murdered: Night of the Long Knives Begins in Ukraine

Oleksandr Muzychko aka Sashko Bily of the extremist Right Sector group that was instrumental in backing the US backed coup d’etat in Kiev was shot dead by police yesterday.  Has the Night of the Long Knives arrived? Has “Yats” been given the order to clean up his unelected regime to make the country safe for corporate plunder? There are conflicting stories about the killing of Muzychnko, one being that the brutal thug was gunned down while trying to escape what is officially described as a "special forces operation" that took place at a cafe in the city of Rivne in western Ukraine. The other story that is circulating is far more ominous and threatens to further expose that great outbreak of democracy that is peddled by the American state-corporate media, the neocons and the Obama administration is nothing more than a fraud of the highest order. According to an account from the BBC:
Earlier, a Ukrainian MP, Oles Doniy, gave a different version of events. He said two cars had forced Muzychko's car to stop, and he had then been dragged into one of the other cars. Later his body was found dumped, his hands tied behind his back and two bullet wounds in his heart, Doniy wrote overnight on his Facebook page.
Correspondents say Muzychko acquired notoriety in Ukraine after he was filmed brandishing an AK-47 assault rifle at a town hall session in western Ukraine, and then harassing a local prosecutor. After that, in February, the Ukrainian interior minister condemned his behaviour and promised to investigate.
That certainly doesn't jibe with that shining tale spun by professional liars about the glorious new era that has come to Ukraine and could be the first indication that the goons who backed the installation of the puppet of the global finance mafia, former central banker Arseniy Yatseniuk have outlived their usefulness.  Hell, it's not as though such a thing has no historical precedent.
In late June of 1934 with Adolf Hitler having completed his rise by being named Chancellor of Germany (Angela Merkel has the gig now) and consolidating his power the violent collection of crude and savage goons that were the Sturmabteilung (SA)- the historical counterparts to Right Sector and John McCain's Svoboda pals – had become a nuisance. The beatings, killings, public displays of menace, drunken debauchery and instability of the SA were not only an embarrassment but a potential threat to the Hitler regime. So Der Führer ordered the blood purge that is known as the Night of the Long Knives to eliminate any future challenge from the Nazi rabble so the leadership was wiped out. Not only was the SA taken out but the opportunity was used to settle other scores – excerpted from Wikipedia:
The regime did not limit itself to a purge of the SA, however. Having earlier imprisoned or exiled prominent Social Democrats and Communists, Hitler used the occasion to move against conservatives he considered unreliable. This included Vice-Chancellor Papen and those in his immediate circle. In Berlin, on Göring's personal orders, an armed SS unit stormed the Vice-Chancellery. Gestapo officers attached to the SS unit shot Papen's secretary Herbert von Bose without bothering to arrest him first. The Gestapo arrested and later executed Papen's close associate Edgar Jung, the author of Papen's Marburg speech; they disposed of his body by dumping it in a ditch. The Gestapo also murdered Erich Klausener, the leader of Catholic Action, and a close Papen associate. The vice-chancellor himself was unceremoniously arrested at the Vice-Chancellery, despite his insistent protests that he could not be arrested. Although Hitler ordered him released days later, Papen no longer dared to criticise the regime.
Hitler, Göring, and Himmler unleashed the Gestapo against old enemies, as well. Both Kurt von Schleicher, Hitler's predecessor as chancellor, and his wife were murdered at their home. Others killed included Gregor Strasser, a former Nazi who had angered Hitler by resigning from the party in 1932, and Gustav Ritter von Kahr, the former Bavarian state commissioner who crushed the Beer Hall Putsch in 1923.[42] Kahr's fate was especially gruesome. His body was found in a wood outside Munich; he had been hacked to death, apparently with pickaxes. The murdered included at least one accidental victim: Willi Schmid, the music critic of the Münchner Neuste Nachrichten, a Munich newspaper. The Gestapo mistook him for Ludwig Schmitt, a past supporter of Otto Strasser, the brother of Gregor.  Such unrestrained violence added to the fearsome reputation of the Gestapo, the Nazis' secret police.
The assassination of Sashko Bily could be the beginning of a modern version of that purge, the bought and paid for media can’t possibly keep the lid on the presence of so many fascists and neo-Nazis in the coup installed government in Kiev forever. The recent beating of Ukranian state television executive Oleksandr Panteleymonov by Svoboda party ruffians and the resulting viral video caused no small amount of embarrassment to the US and the Yatsenyuk government. That act of brutality actually had to be acknowledged and was condemned by US sources who were "deeply offended”.  If the goon squads continue to be caught perpetrating such violent acts it is time to clean them up because the corporate benefactors of carving up the Ukraine bounty have enough problems by taking possession of their new prize sans Crimea already.
But even the best laid plans do go awry and fate of Shashko Bily has members of Red Sector vowing reprisals in would could easily turn into a bloodbath of neo-Nazi vs. neo-Nazi and both jousting for control of what is at this point an already fragile government. Throw into an already volatile mix the presence of old guard corrupt nationalist lunatics like the recently sprung from prison “Gas Princess” Yulia Tymoshenko going off the chain and ranting insanely and it is a proverbial ticking time bomb. These are not the remarks of a highly regarded figure would make to promote stability and foster well being:
"I am sorry that I am not able to be there and am not in charge of these processes, they wouldn't have had a fucking chance of getting Crimea off me."
"I would have found a way to finish off these bastards."
"I am hoping that I will use all my connections and will get the whole world to rise up so that not even scorched earth would be left of Russia."
"Discussing the fate of Ukraine's 8 million ethnic Russians, Tymoshenko was also heard saying that they should be "nuked."
She sounds just like Senator McCain's type of gal.
Nice stuff that the neocons have unleashed, kind of brings back memories of all of the sectarian killings, tortures, murders and prowling death squads that were unleashed after Bush and Cheney bombed and invaded Iraq. This could turn out to be a real mess for those greedy American corporations that Victoria “Fuck the EU” Nuland had invited to feast upon the conquered carcass of Ukraine like so many vultures.
But the vultures will indeed feast given the new growth industry that will be dead bodies strewn from one end of the country to the other thanks to yet another US foreign policy clusterfuck.
