[ Editor’s Note:  Gordon had the number two read story today on Press TV. When they have a strong interview or Viewpoint that they like and it has cycled through the front page, pushed off by incoming news, they can give it a second wind by writing a story like this one to get more readership.  Often the stories can get more exposure because people can read them quicker.

Like past emerging conflicts, we are right on top of this one, even though the workload had doubled for us. But the West is going on display here, the dark underbelly as Gordon says. No one at VT or our readers are going be surprised.

Please excuse any increased typos and email the writer if you see any. We love our proofreaders. Many thanks to those who have been helping tidy up the place…. Jim W. Dean ]

The United States’ call for sanctions against Russia due to its military buildup in Crimea lays bare Washington’s “dark underbelly,” an analyst writes in a column for the Press TV website.

“Recent events in Ukraine have exposed something of the “dark underbelly” of America,” Gordon Duff wrote on Wednesday.

He said that US President Barack Obama’s call for sanctions against Russia due to its military buildup in Crimea has left “the entire world…aghast.”

“People around the world are reeling in shock as America is calling for sanctions against Russia for its military buildup in Crimea in response to the overthrow of the Ukrainian government by ultra-nationalist extremist elements aided by Western intelligence agencies,” wrote Duff.

The analyst said the American leaders are tight-lipped over their own “unimaginably immense hypocrisy.”

Duff said the US government’s behavior has made much of the world mistrustful of the American nation.

Pro-Russian forces in Crimea on Tuesday closed the main airport in the regional capital, Simferopol, preventing all flights in and out, except those connecting to Moscow.

The escalation came as Crimea lawmakers voted for independence from Ukraine in a declaration endorsed by 78 members of the local assembly in a move required for the planned secession referendum to be held on March 16.

The move by the parliament, which has been declared illegal by the self-declared pro-Western government in Kiev, appeared to be aimed at creating a legal framework for joining Russia as a sovereign state.

It also came after ousted president Viktor Yanukovych pledged defiantly to return to Kiev from Russia to regain power from what he labeled as “US-backed bandits.”

    “An aggressive cyber weapon called Snake has infected dozens of Ukrainian computer networks including government systems in one of the most sophisticated attacks of recent years.

    Also known as Ouroboros, after the serpent of Greek mythology that swallowed its own tail, experts say it is comparable in its complexity with Stuxnet, the malware that was found to have disrupted Iran’s uranium enrichment programme in 2010.

    The cyber weapon has been deployed most aggressively since the start of last year ahead of protests that climaxed two weeks ago with the overthrow of Viktor Yanukovich’s government.”

    “A Trojan horse, or Trojan, in computing is a non-self-replicating type of malware program containing malicious code that, when executed, carries out actions determined by the nature of the Trojan, typically causing loss or theft of data, and possible system harm.”

    US actions in Ukraine have, indeed, given the world an unvarnished glimpse of the breathtaking hypocrisy of US leaders that was, as Mr. Dean notes above, already quite evident to those who were awake and paying attention. The replacement of the elected, but undoubtedly corrupt, Yanukovych with an unelected, and equally corrupt, band of billionaire oligarchs couldn’t have happened without US taxpayers footing the $5 billion tab for a mob of student protestors, and a few Gladio snipers. Israel, claiming to be a democracy, helped to overthrow Ukraine’s elected government, and replace it with a government that includes openly anti-semitic fascists. This might seem strange, but those anti-semitic voices may help drive some of Ukraine’s Jewish population to Israel where they can be given new US funded housing built on Palestinian land.

    US leaders claim they are only supporting a spontaneous, popular movement. That’s hard to reconcile with the fact that $5 billion was invested before the popular movement began to fill the streets of Kiev with Molotov cocktail throwing mobs of demonstrators wearing similar uniforms, and carrying standard equipment. No leaders were elected by the mob. Ukraine now finds itself back under the rule of more or less the same group of oligarchs that Yanukovych was elected to replace.

    Mr. Duff is right that US hypocrisy stands out, however Ukraine is also the template for NWO’s global plans, as Mr. Dean mentioned elsewhere.

    “the Christian, Islamic and Judaic cultures have all moved since the European Renaissance to adopt an unreasoning anti-apocalyptic stance, apparently unaware of the burgeoning science of catastrophes. History, it now seems, is repeating itself It has taken the Space Age to revive the Platonist voice of reason but it emerges this time within a modern anti-fundamentalist, anti-apocalyptic tradition over which governments may, as before, be unable to exercise control. Cynics (or modern sophists), in other words, would say that we do not need the celestial threat to disguise Cold War intentions; rather we need the Cold War to disguise celestial intentions! – Victor Clube

    The problem is that, unlike conventional missiles, cometary bodies, because of their electric activity, have a strong electromagnetic signature that can trigger lightning bolts between incoming asteroids and the Earth’s surface that can fry electrical devices over a wide area. One naturally wonders if this is related to the media frequently reporting, since around 2008, on the development of electromagnetic pulse (EMP) weapons by the USA , Israel , China , South Korea and Iran.
    “An EMP is an above-atmosphere level detonation of a nuclear device that produces enough radiation to wreak havoc with electrical systems.”

    Nuclear weapons are EMP weapons, an established fact for over half a century. Why then does the media depict EMP bombs as a ‘newly discovered’ weapon?

      Mysterious fertilizer plant explosions/natural gas explosions/transformer explosions –
      2/28 An underground fire ripped through downtown Columbus early on Friday, causing explosions and sending manhole covers flying into the air in the Ohio state capital.

      No injuries were reported following the pre-dawn blaze in an underground network vault owned by American Electric Power (AEP), a local public utility.

      “Another phenomenon is an apparent spike in unexplained surface-level explosions, one sub-set of which is explosions or fires at industrial plants. There were nearly 40 such hazardous incidents, including five at fertilizer plants, just between April and August 2013.”

      Another evidence of the electromagnetic activity of comets is electrophonic sounds

      “During the 1940s, some scientists started reconsidering the problem in terms of physics, and by the 1980s Australian physicist Colin Keay demonstrated that fireballs can indeed produce electrophonic sounds. Keay found that, in addition to generating light, fireballs also emit very low frequencies (VLF) , which travel at light speed , hence the simultaneous visual and auditory perceptions reported above. In 1988, Watanabe et al. achieved the first detection of VLF signal from a meteor fireball.”

    And average hard working Americans, who watch some evening world news on TV, think Putin is a dictator that thinks he can do no wrong. Like a North Korean soccer game.

    I am somewhat bemused by the extent to which ‘the City of London’ is absent from most of these discussions.

    America is not and never was, the Centre of the Universe, much as the people of the US of A have been brainwashed into so believing.

    • Chandler  March 12, 2014 at 12:23 pm

      You mean all the mind-altering crap my government feeds me isn’t true? We’re not the center? You just blew my whole day.

    • ani  March 12, 2014 at 3:23 pm

      😉 Chandler

      sadly, we are all in the same boat.

      These two were held up to us cringing colonials for too, too long.

      When I finally travelled to those countries, I was appalled by the extent to which the English condescended to us, whereas too many Americans seemed almost incapable of imagining a world beyond their own borders.

      I made the above comment because UK, like Israel, has a tendency to be absent from many important discussions.

      Sorry to spoil your whole day Chandler. May we hope for happier times at the other end of the trials we all face today.

      The was and other types of staffs were a sign of authority in Ancient Egypt, for which reason they are often described as “sceptres” even if they are full-length staffs
      wand rod shepherd’s crook – sword lance spear?

      The globus cruciger was used by powerful rulers and celestial beings alike; it adorned portrayals of both emperors and kings, as well as archangels

      Triple Crown – unity of Great Russia (Russia), Little Russia (the Ukraine) and White Russia (Belarus)

      Double-headed eagle as a Russian coat of arms goes back to the 15th century. W/ fall of Constantinople and end of Byzantine Empire in 1453, the Grand Dukes of Muscovy came to see themselves as the successors of the Byzantine heritage, reinforced by the marriage of Ivan III to Sophia Paleologue (“Third Rome” for Moscow and, by extension, for the whole of Imperial Russia). Ivan adopted the golden Byzantine double-headed eagle in his seal, first documented in 1472, marking his direct claim to the Roman imperial heritage and posing as a sovereign equal and rival to the Holy Roman Empire

      It may be noted that the figure of St George killing the Dragon (not under that name) is found in many pre-christian symbols and sources of various peoples that was living or passed though great plains, not only Slavic but other Indo-European and others too

      The two main elements of Russian state symbols (the two-headed eagle and the mounted figure slaying the dragon) predate Peter the Great. Today, however, the official description does not refer to the rider on the central shield as representing Saint George, mainly in order to maintain the secular character of the modern Russian state.

      The modern arms of Russia were instated by a presidential decree in 1993, and then by a federal law signed by President Vladimir Putin on December 20, 2000.

      A Message & a WARNING

      Why has the mounted man slaying the dragon persisted to this day –
      a concept that appeared in preChristian ancient Egypt w/ Horus on horseback spearing the crocodile

      St George represents the Knight in “shining armor” – the light forces of good
      The dragon represents the dark forces of evil – the Matrix of Lies engineered by the earthly global psychopathic elite in Tune w/ the hyperdimensional Lizard overlords > SO BELOW

      The ‘fire-breathing’, thunderous plague-bearing Dragon in the sky – the Wrath of God/the Cosmos > AS ABOVE

      Human/child sacrifice came about out of sheer desperation to ‘appease the gods’

      Universal mind has been telling us for centuries – Slay the Dragon or else the Cosmos WILL rain down cataclysmic Disease, Death & Destruction > cyclical comentary bombardment

      The Signs –
      Numerous meteorites/bolides/asteroids/fireballs – wildfires in rainsoaked/freezing areas – a plethora of comets
      Unprecedented sinkholes/earthquakes/floods/mass animal deaths/extreme weather

      Mother Earth grows angry & impatient – Heavenly Father soon to unleash his FURY

    Operation Greenstar

    Operation Greenstar is a mind-control program in which the victim is given a screen memory to create the impression of being abducted by extraterrestrials. This is accomplished by placing on the victim’s head a helmet containing electromagnetic solenoids tuned to a 4 Hz. frequency. The solenoids are connected to a computer which projects into the percipient’s mind a graphics program depicting an alien abduction scenario. Such victims are subjected to Janus ‘end times’ programming, and will be activated to create civil unrest shortly prior to declaration of a state of national emergency. Hypnotic regression as practiced by UFO support groups, only serves to reinforce the mind-control programs. A number of day-care centers are used for both mind-control programming and satanic ritual abuse purposes, while a major religious organization serves as a front for the programming of schoolyard shooters

      Operation Greenstar (continued)

      ‘There are four types of brain waves alpha, beta, delta, and theta. The four basic models of Monarch slaves have the same names as these four types of brain waves. High level Illuminati models may have programming that includes all of these types. According to one ex(?)-government source, the CIA has been labeling their harmonic-created total Mind-controlled slaves by the following Bravo 2 series models are men programmed to run the Beast computers. Delta series are models for espionage and assassination. Juliet series are sexual mind controlled slaves. Kilo 5 series is military espionage. Michael 1 series slaves are CIA agents under total mind-control. Operation Greenstar was the Mind-control project to create UFO abductions scenarios. Much of the high level programming in the 1980s and 1990s is no longer done with human programmers, but is done via programmed machines using drugs, electricity and harmonics.’

    ——Crimea’s case is documented and also similar to Kosovo who recently got its Independence.

    ——-Unlike Crimea they don’t have Neo-Nazis leaders, or Psycho, illegitimate prime minister Arseny Yatseniuk, who said in front of “Children,”———“I will put a bullet between my eyes, if the President does not resign.”

    ——The 3-so called “World Leaders–USA, France UK–plus Germany, they are so Stupid” that they don’t even know, that every time they lie, they are lying to themselves, since the “Most of the Citizens of the World” are Smarter than they are.”

    ——What is interesting, is that the so called “World Leaders”, since the Arab Springs, they are getting more and more comfortable meeting the Terrorist Opposition Groups.
