Nigel Farage accuses EU of 'poking Russian bear with stick' over Ukraine

Ukip leader attacks EU's foreign policy, claiming it has provoked Russia and deepened Syria crisis by giving rebels false hope


Nigel Farage intensified his attack on the EU’s “vanity” foreign policy on Thursday as he accused Brussels of poking the “Russian bear with a stick” over Ukraine and of deepening the Syrian civil war by giving false hope to forces hoping to topple the Assad regime.
Amid widespread criticism of the Ukip leader’s claim in his TV debate with Nick Clegg that the EU had “blood on its hands” after the violence in Kiev, Farage said the EU had destabilised a series of countries.
The Ukip leader went on the offensive after political leaders expressed astonishment at his claim in the debate with the deputy prime minister that the EU was to blame for the bloodshed after giving false hope to people in western Ukraine when it
offered a partnership agreement to the ousted president, Viktor Yanukovych.
The deputy prime ministerClegg said he was “extraordinarily surprised” that the Ukip leader had allowed his “loathing of the EU” to prompt him to say in their televised LBC debate that the EU had blood on its hands in Ukraine.
Lord Ashdown, the former Liberal Democrat leader, accused Farage of having given comfort to Putin. The Tories said the remarks by Farage in the final minutes of his hour-long LBC debate with Clegg, after the deputy prime minister had bombarded him with statistics about the EU, raised questions about his stamina.
Speaking on his weekly LBC phone-in on the morning after their debate, Clegg made clear thathe would highlight the remarks by Farage when they hold a second televised debate on BBC2 next week.
He said: “It shows quite how extreme people can be – like Nigel Farage – when their loathing of the EU becomes so all-consuming that they even end up siding with Vladimir Putin in order to make their point.
To suggest that somehow it is the EU’s fault that the Ukrainian people rose up, as many did on the streets of Kiev, against their government seeking to claim greater democracy, greater freedom, is such a perverse way of looking at things.”
But Farage issued a statement on Thursday night attacking the “vanity” of EU foreign policy and extending his criticism beyond the EU’s handling of Ukraine. He said: “We are seeing vanity take the place of reason in foreign policy and the result is to destabilise a whole series of countries to no positive effect that I can discern.

The Junta regime still holds in Greece

These photos are not taken in Pyongyang but at the "private" parade that took place today under the watchful eyes of 3,000 policemen. 
The planned school parade (for the celebration of the Greek Revolution of 1821) today at 11 am was joined by police trucks that closed many roads in Athens. Citizens had the "opportunity" to watch the parade only at certain places of the city.

Two Steps Forward, One Step Back


Paul Craig Roberts
Washington’s plan to seize Ukraine and to evict Russia from its Black Sea naval base has come amiss. But to turn around Lenin’s quote, “two steps forward, one step back.”
Do you remember all the tough talk coming from John Kerry, the White House Fool, Hilary Clinton, and the lickspittle Merkel about the harsh sanctions that would “badly damage” the Russian economy unless Russia prevented the referendum vote in Crimea? Well, it was all bullshit, more hot air from the White House sock puppet and the lickspittle German chancellor who is a disgrace to the German nation. As the Russians kept telling John Kerry, sanctions on Russia would destroy Europe and do little damage to Russia.
I wish the Russians had kept this to themselves. I was looking forward to the Washington morons destroying NATO by closing down the European economy.
Of course, after pretending that they were macho tough guys, something that Washington’s presstitute media could hype as sanctions had to be imposed, so Washington came up with sanctions, not on Russia, but on eleven individuals: the deposed Ukrainian president, an advisor to the deposed president, 2 Crimean officials, and 7 Russians.
The choice of the officials is an utter mystery. The seven Russians are a Putin aid, a Putin adviser, four members of the Russian parliament (Duma) and a deputy prime minister. What any of these people had to do with the referendum in Crimea, no one knows.
Moreover, the sanctions only apply to foreign bank accounts that these 11 individuals might have outside Russia. Most likely, that means only the deposed Ukrainian president, if we are to believe all the propaganda about him. Other reports say that the sanctions are only for the next six months.
If the Washington and EU criminals steal any money from these persons, the Russian central bank can replenish their stolen accounts.
The people who decided that Crimea would disassociate from Ukraine and return to Russia were the people themselves. Under the wording of Obama’s stupid sanctions, his sanctions should apply to the Crimean people who voted to disassociate from the US stooge government in Kiev.
Additionally, Obama’s sanctions apply to himself and to his regime and to its NATO puppets as it was the West that overthrew the elected government of Ukraine, not Russia or Crimea. The Americans, of course, never apply law to themselves.
In other words, the sanctions are totally meaningless. Yet, the White House Fool declared: “If Russia continues to interfere in Ukraine, we stand ready to impose further sanctions.”
Obama’s hypocrisy makes a person want to puke. It is the White House Fool who is interfering in Ukraine. It was Washington that financed and organized the overthrow of the elected Ukraine government, using well organized and well armed neo-nazis to intimidate the unarmed police and ruling party, thus clearing the way for Washington to set up an unelected government of its well-paid stooges.
What the incompetent White House Fool overlooked is that southern and eastern Ukraine are Russian, not Ukrainian, so the fool’s coup has caused Crimea to depart and is causing widespread protests in eastern Ukraine against Washington’s stooge unelected government in Kiev. Washington’s stooge Kiev government has appointed unelected Ukrainian multibillionaire oligarchs, who have their own private security forces, as mayors of the Russian cities to put down the protests. If the oligarchs use violence against the Russian people, the likely result will be that the Russian Army will take control of eastern Ukraine, which in every essential way is Russian.
If eastern Ukraine returns to Russia, Washington will be left with the ultra-nationalists of western Ukraine, people who fought for Hitler during World War 2. The EU doesn’t want ultra-nationalists as the EU is busy stamping out nationalism and the sovereignty of European countries. Nevertheless, Washington will have gained a strategic advantage over Moscow, as Washington can place anti-ballistic missile and other military bases on western Ukraine’s border with Russia, thus completing Washington’s encirclement of Russia with hostile military and missile bases.
Russia will neutralize the US bases by targeting them with Iskander missiles, which cannot be intercepted by ABMs.
All that the White House Fool will have achieved is to further make clear to Russia, and to China, that Washington has both on its target list, because both are in the way of Washington’s world hegemony.
