While Americans who are dependent on the corrupt state-corporate media fail to understand anything that is really going on in Ukraine, such as their tax dollars being used to support murdering neo-Nazi militias the mask slipped a bit in the aftermath of the shooting down of a Kiev junta military aircraft. The plane, ferrying military troops to the east for the ongoing ethnic cleansing operations sanctioned by the Obama-Kerry-Nuland dream team with a domestic media blackout to keep the war crimes hidden from the American people was taken out by an anti-aircraft missile outside of Luhansk killing 40 paratroopers and the crew. This elicited cries of outrage from the puppet government of recently 'elected' western puppet Petro Porshenko aka the Chocolate King as well as a vow of vengeance that will probably make the atrocities at the Odessa trade union building last month look like child's play.
But it was Victoria "Fuck the EU" Nuland's guy, the pencil necked geek technocrat Arseniy "Yats" Yatsenyuk, the sitting Prime Minister installed by the US backed coup d'etat against the democratically elected Viktor Yanukovych who during a speech channeled his inner Stepan Bandera. The following is excerpted from a story on the website of the missing airplane network CNN:
Hundreds gathered in Kiev's Independence Square on Sunday to honor the victims of violence that has ravaged Ukraine for months, including 49 people killed when a military plane was shot down.
Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko had declared Sunday a day of mourning. The crowd in Kiev observed a moment of silence at noon local time (5 a.m. ET).
"We bow our heads to the heroes who lost their lives for the sake of their country, to prevent the war from coming into the house of each of us," Prime-Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said.
"They lost their lives because they defended men and women, children and the elderly who found themselves in a situation facing a threat to be killed by invaders and sponsored by subhumans," he said. "First, we will commemorate the heroes by wiping out those who killed them and then by cleaning our land from the evil."
The "subhuman" reference is a major faux pas from "Yats" and it is being spun on message boards and in comments sections on stories as being more of a reference to the phantom Russians that the US-EU-NATO Axis of Aggression and their Kiev puppets have insisted are operating in the eastern region that is largely populated by ethnic Russians. Still, no matter the polishing of the turd that slid out of Yatsenyuk's mouth the term conjures up ugly historical images, particularly in a country where many collaborated with the Nazis and the last time such rhetoric was not only used but accepted Jews were summarily rounded up, murdered or forced into concentration camps and then gassed and incinerated. The "subhuman" reference has since been scrubbed by the Ukrainian embassy website and replaced with "inhumans" but the enterprising souls at the Moon of Alabama blog were able to get a screenshot in it's original version. Also see the Wikipedia entry on the actual Nazi term Untermensch which means "subhuman".
But the coup regime and it's new figurehead Poroshenko aren't known for their subtlety with their unconditional backing of the US establishment. If it isn't "Yats" invoking Nazi phraseology there is the far more Americanized version of rhetoric that fits our star-spangled Idiocracy which was delivered to an angry mob that gathered outside the Russian embassy in Kiev as delivered by junta Foreign Minister Andrii Deshchytsia as excerpted from a story in The Guardian "Ukraine minister's abusive remarks about Putin spark diplomatic row":
Ukraine's foreign minister has become embroiled in an unusual diplomatic row after he was caught on camera making abusive remarks about Vladimir Putin outside the Russian embassy in Kiev on Saturday evening.
As the conflict in eastern Ukraine has deepened in recent months, the chant of "Putin khuilo" has become ever more popular among Ukrainians who blame Russia for stoking discontent in the east. Khuilo is a Russian swearword that approximately translates as "fucker" or "dickhead".
Andriy Deshchytsia, the country's acting foreign minister, arrived at the Russian embassy to reason with crowds who had gathered outside, angered that pro-Russia rebels had brought down a Ukrainian transport plane near Luhansk early on Saturday, killing 49 people on board. The crowds threw rocks and eggs at the embassy, destroyed diplomatic vehicles, and painted swastikas on the gates, chanting "Putin is a fascist" and "Putin khuilo".
Deshchytsia tried to calm some in the crowd, telling them Russia should answer for its actions but that storming the embassy was not the correct response. When he was shouted down by the angry mob, he responded: "I am for you protesting. I am ready to be here with you and say 'Russia, get out of Ukraine'… Yes, Putin is a khuilo, yes."
Seizing on his words, a delighted group of protesters then struck up a "Putin khuilo" chant, leaving the minister looking somewhat bemused.
The incident prompted fury in Moscow, where officials are already incensed by the attack on the embassy and its property.
Hardly language becoming a high official and it certainly is not very helpful in deescalating a situation that seems to be very dangerously morphing into something that could develop into World War III with Obama sending nuclear capable bombers to Europe and Russia cutting off the gas to the deadbeats in Kiev today. The Russians aren't stupid, they have seen this movie before and the Sunday comments of Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov are telling:
The Ukrainian authorities "act with impunity" on various issues because they are "shielded by our Western partners, or by some of them, at least," and their "irreconcilable" position in talks on natural gas trade with Russia is one way this "impunity" manifests itself in, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Sunday.
"We hope this arrogant and uncompromising position is not backed by a third power, although we have some reasons to think so."
"It's a source of worry for us that this impunity manifests itself increasingly often," he said, mentioning repeated arrests of Russian journalists and "the disgusting attack on the Russian Embassy" on Saturday.
Short of the Kiev fascists being reigned in by some sort of adult leadership on behalf of the USA!, USA!, USA! which has yet to manifest itself in any way the use of Hitlerian rhetoric won't be the only similarity to World War II - the body count has the potential to be astronomical when millions are cremated by some idiot in the US or NATO losing his temper and unleashing the nukes.
