The Latest Batchelor-Cohen Ukraine Discussion

85

I was able to listen to this broadcast live earlier Tuesday evening. The information discussed is so important and immediately relevant that I thought I should repost it here as soon as possible.

You must understand several things:

  1. The Ukraine "National Guard" that is ravaging the Donbass region is NOT the Ukraine Army. Instead, it is made up of 7 or 8 militias over which the central government in Kiev has limited control.
  2. The "humanitarian convoy" that left Moscow yesterday did so with great fanfare, including the blessing of a Russian Orthodox bishop. Obviously, the Russians think that getting this convoy into Eastern Ukraine is very important.
  3. This convoy is due to arrive at the Ukraine border sometime late Thursday or early Friday.
  4. How the Ukraine militias act and react with this convoy is the great unknown and the situation is ripe for disaster.
  5. Putin and most of the leaders of the state Duma will travel to Crimea on Thursday and, while there, Putin plans to give a major speech. Professor Cohen reports that several of his contacts in Russia think this speech is a prelude to invasion.

All of this is coming to a head over the next 48-72 hours. It is extraordinarily important that you are paying attention to this crisis and you should absolutely make time to listen to this entire podcast.

Again, more on Professor Stephen F. Cohen can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_F._Cohen

Another Turdville Advantage.

Thanks for turning me on to this particular podcast - great info and extremely relevant. If I relied on the MSM - I would have an entirely different view of the Ukraine situation.

General message to TF and the regulars

TF,

I know some of the guys were discussing the site being down on the morning of 11 AUG 2014.

I figured that your service provider was having software issues related to the one year renew.

But, then the guys were discussing various internet service issues through different ISPs.

I tried to connect through 3 methods but none were successful.

Hope that they have it worked out.

If any guys have URL's for descriptors regarding the internet services issues and any explanation, please consider posting it to the Digital Security thread that we started several weeks ago. Check under the Forums.
