Obama’s Strategy Of Fomenting Revolution In Ukraine Is Backfiring Dramatically

Obama On The Phone Talking To Russian President Vladimir PutinWhen the Obama administration was plotting to overthrow the democratically-elected government of Ukraine, what in the world did they expect to happen in the aftermath?  Did they just expect Russia to roll over and play dead as the U.S. and the EU installed a rabidly anti-Russian government in Kiev?  Over the past few years, the U.S. government has chosen to foment violent political revolutions all over the globe.  We have seen violent revolutions overthrow governments all across the Middle East and Africa, but when the U.S. government decided to do the same thing in Ukraine they went way too far.  When you mess with Ukraine, and when you mess with Crimea in particular, you are crossing a huge red line as far as the Russians are concerned.  By crossing that red line, the Obama administration has ensured that the relationship between the United States and Russia will never be friendly again.


If you have not listened to the conversation between Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Ambassador to the Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt that was leaked a little over a month ago on YouTube, please click on the video posted below.  As Robert Wenzel recently discussed, this video is solid proof that Obama administration officials were plotting who the new leaders of Ukraine would be several weeks before a violent revolution ousted President Viktor Yanukovych from power…

During the clip, Nuland and Pyatt discuss their desired outcome for the crisis in Ukraine. Now that 3 weeks have passed since the leak and events have developed, it is instructive to listen to the recording once again. (See below.) Keep in mind that this leak was made on February 2, which means the conversation occurred before that date. Viktor Yanukovych did not lose power over the Ukrainian government until more than three weeks later February 24th.

The recording reveals Nuland and Pyatt discussing  whether Vitali Klitschko, sometimes referred to as “Klitsch” in the recording, should be named the deputy prime minister and seems to assume that Arseniy Yatseniuk, sometimes referred to in the recording as “Yats,” will become prime minister. Since that conversation, Yatseniuk has, indeed, become prime minister. Anybody that tells you that the US is not running the “revolution” from behind the scenes is blowing smoke.

Here is the video

Thanks to the meddling of the United States and the EU, the situation in Ukraine is now a giant mess.  Russian troops have moved into Crimea to protect Russian interests, and Ukraine stands on the brink of civil war.

Sadly, when Barack Obama’s national security team met on Saturday to discuss the crisis in Ukraine, Obama didn’t even show up.

Obama did speak with Vladimir Putin for 90 minutes on Saturday, but that didn’t solve anything of course.

And with each passing day, Obama’s foreign policy is looking like an even bigger joke.

Even U.S. Senators are mocking him.  Just check out what U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham had to say on the matter…

“Every time the president goes on national television and threatens Putin or anyone like Putin, everybody’s eyes roll, including mine.”

Conservative commentator Mark Levin was even harsher when he stated that he “can’t think of anything he [Obama] touches that doesn’t turn to crap!”

But of course Obama has been completely and totally clueless when it comes to Russia for a very long time.

During one of the presidential debates during the last election, Obama made the following statement to Mitt Romney when Romney suggested that Russia is a serious threat…

“The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because…the cold war’s been over for 20 years.”

Who looks like the fool now?

And Obama especially looks foolish since his “democratic revolution” is starting to backfire dramatically.  Just consider the following facts…

-It is estimated that approximately 675,000 Ukrainians have fled into Russia during January and February.  Why would they be going into Russia for protection if Russia is the “bad guy”?

-The head of Ukraine’s navy has defected and is now working with the Russians.

-The flagship of the Ukrainian Navy has switched sides…

Ukraine’s Navy flagship, the Hetman Sahaidachny frigate, has reportedly refused to follow orders from Kiev, and come over to Russia’s side and is returning home after taking part in NATO operation in the Gulf of Aden flying the Russian naval flag.

There has been conflicting information on where exactly the vessel is, but a Russian senator has confirmed to Izvestia daily that the frigate defected to the Russian side.

-A large number of high ranking Ukrainian military officials have switched sides

A number of high ranking Ukrainian military and security officials in Crimea have sworn their allegiance to the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, as Simferopol pushes for its autonomy from the self-imposed government in Kiev.

The head of the Security Service of Crimea Petyor Zima, Chief of Department of Internal Affairs in the Crimea Sergey Abisov, the head of Service for Emergency Situations Sergei Shakhov and acting Chief of the Border Guards of Crimea Victor Melnichenko all took an oath of allegiance to the people of Crimea.

-It is being reported that many of the Ukrainian troops stationed in Crimea have turned on the government in Kiev…

Crimea-stationed Ukrainian troops have switched sides to join forces with local pro-Russia authorities in the Russian-dominated autonomous republic of Crimea, a source in the region’s administration has said.

The source has stressed the transition was peaceful and without a single shot being fired.

Some of the servicemen reportedly left their posts without prior warning, while others surrendered letters of resignation but the majority went over to the Crimean government.

-The pro-Russian revolution that is sweeping Crimea is starting to spread to other regions as well…

In the economically important eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk, hundreds of pro-Russian protesters massed Saturday in the main square and took over a main government administration building, and raised the Russian flag, according to local residents and news outlets. It was unclear whether the protesters were local residents. The number of protesters was also unclear; Russian and Ukrainian media had wildly different estimates of crowd strength.

The Donetsk city council issued a statement demanding a referendum over whether the mining region with strong ties to Russia should remain part of Ukraine.

By nightfall, the area around the Donetsk main square was quiet. A reporter from Ukrainian national television said that the protesters remained inside the building, drinking tea and planning new pro-Russia protests for Monday.

And this is probably what Russia is planning to do.

Instead of taking Ukraine militarily, they hope to enable a “new revolution” to swing things back their way.  The following is an excerpt from an NBC News article

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Sunday that Ukraine’s leaders had seized power illegally, and predicted their rule would end with “a new revolution [and] new bloodshed.”

Medvedev said that, while Viktor Yanukovych had practically no authority, he remained the legitimate head of state according the constitution, adding: “If he is guilty before Ukraine – hold an impeachment procedure … and try him.”

“Everything else is lawlessness. The seizure of power,” Medvedev said on his Facebook page. “And that means such order will be extremely unstable. It will end in a new revolution. New bloodshed.”

Of course large numbers of Russian troops will be on hand to make sure that this “counter-revolution” succeeds.  Even as you read this, more Russian forces continue to pour into Crimea

Meanwhile, in Crimea, Ukrainian Defense Ministry spokesman Vladislav Seleznyov told CNN on Monday that up to 12 trucks full of Russian troops have crossed into the eastern Crimean city of Kerch from Russia.

Additionally, Ukrainian Border Service Assistant Chief Colonel Sergei Astakhov described Russian troop movements by ferry from Russia across the Strait of Kerch in a phone conversation. Astakhov said the first two ferries carrying armed men were navigating towards the ferry dock and border post in Kerch. As the ferries approached the port, 10 heavily armed troops from the Russian Black Sea Fleet attacked the border post from land and used force to overwhelm the Ukrainian border guards, Astakhov said.

The upper house of Parliament in Moscow has given President Vladimir Putin the authority to use “the armed forces of the Russian Federation on the territory of Ukraine until the normalization of the socio-political situation in that country“, and even U.S. officials are admitting that the Russian military has “complete operational control of the Crimean Peninsula” at this point.

And this may just be the beginning.  Reportedly, during his 90 minute conversation with Obama on Saturday Putin hinted that Russian military intervention “could go beyond Crimea”

During his 90-minute phone conversation with President Obama on Saturday, Russian President Vladimir Putin hinted that Russian military intervention in Ukraine could go beyond Crimea, the region now under effectively occupied by Russia.

That’s according to the Kremlin’s brief account of the phone call, initiated by Obama.

“Vladimir Putin stressed that in case of any further spread of violence to Eastern Ukraine and Crimea, Russia retains the right to protect its interests and the Russian-speaking population of those areas,” it said.

So what is going to happen next?

Nobody knows for sure.

But without a doubt, Obama’s strategy of fomenting revolution in Ukraine is backfiring dramatically.

    Europe has most of the big WWII cemeteries, they have what is left of the concentration camps. They have no trouble remembering what happened, the last time the Nazis got control of a Country. You wonder why the commander of the Ukraine navy, went over to the Russian side. You wonder why many of the people of the Ukraine actually prefer the Russians. I suspect it has a lot to do with Nazis in the coalition Government. People who agree on little else, agree they never want to see the Nazis make a comeback.

  • A Dodgy Bloke

    I’ve always wondered how BHO and friends expected to act? Russia for all it’s problems is not going just let the Ukraine wander off into the EU. The EU doesn’t need another economic basket case it can barely support the ones it has now.
    Has any one been keeping up with the capital flight from Russia? It’s been going on all over the Emerging Markets. It’s getting worse the Russian banks took a beating today on the Russian Stock Market. Is this how they intend to deal with Vlad? Crash an already shaky Russian economy? Anybody thinks Vlad and his friends will take that lying down is delusional.

    • Uh-hUh

      Obama should threaten Putin by saying, “If you don’t surrender your position, I am signing you up for Obamacare!” …..Putin would surrender immediately (and since it worked for Biden attempting to sign up a Canadian for Obamacare, it should work for Obama).

      The Stooges are running the country = Obama, Jarrett, and Biden.

      Heaven help the U.S. now that the Russian leader has become our hero by standing up to Obama….something our own Congress fails to do.

  • DJohn1

    I think it is ironic that Crimea spells Crime A in English.
    Everything in the Ukraine is accomplished by bribery. That is from former citizens in the area that now live here. Everything there is corrupted. At least that is what these people are saying.
    I personally think that the Russians are biting off a little bit more than they realise. I think they will end up regretting the entire thing.
    The main thing I see here is that we are seeing the true person that we are dealing with. Russia has never ever been our friend. Friends do not threaten people with “we will bury you.” Nothing has changed since that statement was made in the 50s.
    Neither is China a friend to the United States. They wish to push us into bankruptcy with their predatory economic techniques. More fool our people for allowing it to happen.
    The country I know would never have allowed this to happen. If I had told someone in 1950 what is happening now, they would not only not believe me, they would make motions like I was crazy or something.
    My own suggestion is that we need to pick ourselves up and start supporting ourselves instead of being supported by a bunch of people in a very poor area of the world.
    That would mean bringing the industry back here.
    It means earning the money and paying back our debts to those we owe money to abroad.
    That would mean prosecuting the foreigners for copy infringement.
    That would mean basically keeping their goods out of the country and anyone else that doesn’t follow the same rules we lay down for our own industry.
    It means that if there is a huge tariff for goods coming into China then an equal or better tariff is put on their goods coming into our country.
    These people and more are not our friends. They are the enemy.
    We have to tie the American Dollar to value. That means that when someone does business in Dollars it has an intrinsic value no matter what.
    It means we have to regain our country and the economic basis on which this country was originally built.
    We cannot continue to give the world foreign aid.
    Charity begins at home. It means we have to figure out a way to bring that economy back here and enforce our values by being self-sufficient.
    The one thing I did notice about all the military hardware from photos of the Ukraine is it is all very expensive equipment. That means they are vulnerable because when a helicopter dies it costs approximately $1-5 million dollars a piece.
    Same goes for a fleet of ships. Russia is vulnerable because of this expensive equipment. The average life of a machine gunner in World War II was approximately 15 minutes. I suggest that you can win a battle and lose the war because every loss of equipment costs too much to replace. This is not a war that will be won by anyone. The cost in blood is too high. I mentioned the machine gunner because at the time the gunner was pushing out loads of powerful bullets. But it only took one rifle with deadly accuracy to end it all.
    The same goes for predominant equipment like powerful helicopters and armored vehicles. Armor does not work against the right kind of explosives delivered by primitive means.
    At first glance it is very intimidating and it might even work. The problem is the Russians are causing more of a problem for themselves than they are solving.
    They are making the very people they are saving angry. They are also exposing themselves as the people they actually are. That is a bunch of criminals set on conquering anyone weaker than they are.

      DJ1: I agree with a lot you say, however there is less corruption in Moscow, by far, than there is in Kiev, Odessa, Kharkov or many other cities I have lived in for many, many years – at least since about 1997. The cost of maintenance and parts for AK-47 is a fraction of M-16’s, Russian BMP’s and BTR-80 (the amphibious armored personnel carriers you see in Crimea) have highly “de-tuned” engines, I think they will run on carrot juice, and are environmental nightmares, but they are a cinch to fix. All through their war in Afghanistan their equipment held up quite well, only Stingers brought down the big Mi-26 “Halos”. And one other statement, “If I had told someone in 1950…” You know, if you had told some one in 2004 you would have received the same response! I go back in late May, hope they clean this up a bit by then!

      The other way around, you being hostile to the Russians and Russian nation.

      Putin was the first to offer help to Bush on September 11, oil prices where higher in Russia than in the US 10 years ago despite the former exporting to the latter, export of uranium too, Russia have done its part to prevent the 2008 crash from becoming much worst than it was.

      US today have debt to Russia nowadays, Russia of mr Putin (and yeltsin before that) have been supporting the US economy for a very long time, hopeflly that will soon change.

      2001 Kursk submarine, Putin did everything he could to hide that it was not an accident, that a NATO submarine had sunk it.

      This time it is the EU cultural marxist bastards and the wannabe-marxist White House resident who went too far. EU can squeal like pigs, they need Russia far more than Russia needs them. Even the semi-competent Putin and Yanukovich governements.

      German National-Socialists where willing to fight for their ideology, are you going to do the same for liberalism and the baksters behind it?!? Doubt it.

      Crimea war was a full 100 years before Krushnev´s speech. Christians betraying other christians, for the sake of money and trade, taking the side of muslims. At least Juda realized what he did and hung himself, you on the other hand, have made the opposite choice, to just go on and on.

      Russians in Eastern and souther ukraine are taking uniforms and rifles they have been hidding for years.
      Western parasites will starve without the workers of the eastern side.

      Hail the Russia nation and death to its ennemies.

  • 2¢Wurth

    My roommate sent several videos of the Administration building in Kharkov, Ukraine being under siege and then one of the overpowering of the police force at the front entrance. The Russian flag was raised early evening on Saturday. The city of 1.8 million is now quiet, the markets opened on Sunday and Monday was as normal as things could be with the banks heavily limiting any withdrawals and many of the major factories shut down. Meanwhile, far-right thugs walk around Kiev with impunity. As far as I have heard from friends in six different Eastern Ukraine cities, only one death and a couple of beatings have been reported. Most of the news you hear in the US is bald faced propaganda, however I do think a massive meltdown of the markets may have a profound effect on not only Ukrainian but the Russian banking sector. It could be the economic factor, not the military, that drives this toward a terrible juncture.

    • Uh-hUh

      When a country is invaded by anybody but America nowadays, somehow that is wrong and not on the side of “democracy” per the US govt, but when American invades, it’s always for “democracy.”

      What an interesting moral code we have…so warped.

      And how interesting that Russia is saying, “If the president of the Ukraine did something wrong, impeach him”…the democratic way. What a topsy-turvy world we are in.

    Everyone at the State Dept. and CIA needs to be fired ASAP. I am sick of their wars and meddling. They are completely out of control and unaccountable to the people. How many idiots at the CIA got fired over 9/11? ZERO. Gross incompetence and no accountability. Same thing with Hillary’s State Dept with Bengazi.

    And why is this stupid Jewess bee-ach Victoria Nuland messing around in Ukrainian/Russian affairs? She is in way over her head. And then you have silver spoon-boy Jeffrey Pyatt who was born in La Jolla and went to Yale. From Wikipedia, “On October 15, 2013 Pyatt attended an international conference on fighting anti-Semitism in Kiev”.

    Under every rock…

    • She is a JINO, not a Jew.

    • BuckJohnson

      I can’t believe that the CIA and the military thought this was a good idea. Everyone had to have known that Ukraine and Crimea was the red line for the Russians. Hell Cuba was the red line for us when the USSR tried to put nukes on the island during the cuban missile crisis. We blockaded the island and was willing to go to war and Russia backed down. And then in these pivotal meetings the president isn’t there in regard to a situation that could lead to WWIII!!!!!

      It must be true what they have been saying about the President all these years. And that is he isn’t running the presidency because he doesn’t know how and acts distant. He’s up there with Nero, fiddling while Rome burns.

    The US is having a hard enough time just dealing with our own crises that have befallen Americans much less butt into the affairs of other nations and tell them what to do as if we are such stellar examples of the way it should be. We are such control freaks in this country and everywhere we go we spread chaos, mayhem, war, disparity and civil war among the people. It looks like Russia and China understand one another and speak the same language (figuratively speaking). We need to start letting go of our fears, get a grip, tone it down and start acting like we have something to learn instead of something to teach. We are not the beacon of hope and light that we were 40 years ago and need to start cooperating instead of isolating, pouting and threatening when we don’t get our way.

    Nazis actually killed far more. You have to remember the Nazis started the war. So when you add in all the people murdered in the camps, plus all the war dead, on both sides. Yes if you start the war, you get credit for all the victims. More important point, I know of no one, who would wish Stalin could come back. These nut cases would love to have Hitler back. So to me the Soviets are history. It is the Nazis who keep trying to make a comeback. So from my standpoint, they are worse.

    Russia is in the process of lining up their allies for the push on Israel during the tribulation. The Ukraine is part of that. I have been wondering why Obama is still in office. He should have been impeached a long time ago. Somebody tell me why he is still in office. He should have been impeached a long time ago. In my opinion, he is an embarrassment to this country and a liability. Especially if Senators are rolling their eyes and beginning to doubt his credibility.

    Obama knows exactly what he’s doing. He’s leading the Russians closer to Israel. He knows Russia will get greedy and eventually seek to invade Israel.
