The situation in southern Ukraine has rapidly deteriorated today as the NAF have begun an "offensive operation" in Mariupol. How this plays out in the days ahead remains to be seen but wait until you see and hear the YouTube clip we've found.
Again, the TFMR Ukraine War Correspondent, SilverSooner, continues to keep Turdville up-to-date with all of the changing information. SS is able to see through some of the "war fog" and present concise summaries for all of us from information gleaned from his contacts on the ground in the Donbass. The first comment listed below is a copy-and-paste of the information he shared with us late yesterday.
The situation has taken a dramatic turn for the worst today as the Novorussian Armed Forces (NAF) have begun what one of their leaders has called "an offensive operation". An excellent summary of the days events was posted to ZeroHedge earlier and I urge you to review this link: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-01-24/pro-separatist-rebels-launch-o...
As this situation unfolds, your best source of immediate information continues to be Twitter. While I try to pass along anything of interest that I see through my account @TFMetals, I urge you to also follow some of these folks yourself:
Most importantly and, quite frankly the purpose of this post, you must diligently attempt to see through this fog of war yourself. The misinformation and propaganda is thick, on both sides. This is one reason why I've been posting the weekly Batchelor-Cohen discussions since last February!
In "the West", you're being told that the Ukrainian armed forces tasked with defending Mariupol and other cities are a hard-scrabble crew of Ukrainian patriots. While that may certainly be true in some instances, I ask you to listen to this brief video that was taken earlier today in Mariupol. Does this soldier sound Ukrainian to you??
Lastly, we've followed this situation very closely for the past year because of its potential, dramatic impact on The End of The Great Keynesian Experiment. With HOT WAR heating up across Ukraine and now with direct evidence of NATO mercenaries in country, this situation is about to get even more dangerous.
Please continue to monitor it very closely!
p.s. A big thanks to SilverSooner for all his efforts and for passing along the YouTube clip embedded above.
