Typical is TIME Magazine, which headlined on 24 July 2014, "In Russia, Crime Without Punishment.”
The sub-head, from Simon Shuster, "reporting" for the Russia-hating regime of Barack Obama, in the Russia-hating Ukrainian capital Kiev, was the even-more-slanted, propagandistic: "Vladimir Putin backs the rebels suspected of shooting down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17. Why each new crisis makes him stronger." Then, to stir the fear in its gulls even more, TIME's propaganda (though they call this sort of thing "news reporting") opened: "The scene was almost too horrible to take in, and yet in a world of bristling threats no scene has been more revealing: under the baking July sun of eastern Ukraine, hundreds of bodies lay rotting as pro-Russian militiamen, some of them apparently drunk, brandished their weapons to keep European observers away." The “Crime Without Punishment” was here alleged to have been such men’s shooting down of the Malaysian jet.

World history is filled with empires, e.g. the Roman and Byzantine empires, the European colonial empires, various ancient Iranian empires, the Arab Caliphate and Ottoman Empire, the Soviet Union to name a few. These historic empires have one thing in common: they no longer exist. As the lifecycle of empire wanes, rather than being a benefit to the home country, sustaining empire becomes more expensive than it is worth.
While the US economy and military remain the largest in the world, the economy is faltering and losing its vitality. Chalmers Johnson, a CIA analyst who became a critic of the agency and author of a series on US Empire, writes:
“Thirty-five years from now, America's official century of being top dog (1945-2045) will have come to an end; its time may, in fact, be running out right now. We are likely to begin to look ever more like a giant version of England at the end of its imperial run, as we come face-to-face with, if not necessarily to terms with, our aging infrastructure, declining international clout, and sagging economy.”
Voice of America headlined on July 26th,US Defense Department Warns of Arms to Eastern Ukraine, "" and quoted General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, as asserting:
"My fear is actually, you know if I have a fear about this it's that Putin may actually light a fire that he loses control of. ... In other words, you know I; these ethnic enclaves, there's a rising tide of nationalism and nationalism can be a very dangerous instinct and impulse. There's a rising tide of nationalism in Europe right now that has been created by, in many ways, by these Russian activities that I find to be quite dangerous."
Obama's Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is accusing Russia of stirring up the "rising tide of nationalism in Europe."

By now, it is crystal clear that the Judeo-Nazi state of Israel has committed a real holocaust in the Gaza Strip. The shocking scenes of incinerated children and women are indescribable as the odor of death is wafting out everywhere. The magnitude of death and destruction simply defies linguistic description. It is stronger than all the words in the world.
The ongoing holocaust is by no means an aberration or anomaly as far as the Zionist Jewish mindset is concerned.
Israeli officials and ordinary Jews are quite gleeful and boastful about the murder of civilians. (Up to 80% of the Palestinians massacred so far are children and other innocent civilians).
Hence, there is no escape reaching the conclusion that the genocidal aggression is an accurate expression and reflection of the Zionist-Jewish mindset, a nefarious mindset by every imagined standard, which is also unmatched in its evilness and barbarianism in the annals of human history.

One thing to be said for the women now heading the Federal Reserve and the IMF: compared to some of their predecessors, they are refreshingly honest. The Wall Street Journal reported on July 2nd:
Two of the world’s most powerful women of finance sat down for a lengthy discussion Wednesday on the future of monetary policy in a post-crisis world: U.S. Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen and International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde. Before a veritable who’s-who in international economics packing the IMF’s largest conference hall, the two covered all the hottest topics in debate among the world’s central bankers, financiers and economists.

What does it mean to use human shields? Employed by the Germans and Japanese in the second word war, the tactic is premised on an underlying trust in your enemy's humanity. It appeals to the compassion and mercy of the combatant that they not slaughter the innocent in order to avenge their target. The 'shield' is not the human bodies surrounding the 'guilty' party, the shield is the clemency that mankind instinctively affords the innocent. The shield evaporates only when confronted by an enemy who is not merely a fellow solder locked in a power battle, but a psychopath unconcerned with the pain of others. Such is the case with the Hamas. They are faced with an enemy who is willing to obliterate pregnant women, babies, kids, handicapped people, schools and crowded hospitals in order to smash their target. The Israelis repeatedly demonstrate a pathological disregard for any life that is not a Jewish life, and it is for this reason alone, that the Hamas are utterly incapable of ever using 'human shields.'
The Ukrainian leadership has resigned, because of their unwillingness to impose the IMF's terms, which would impoverish the population within months. That impoverishment would be extracted from the Ukrainian public in order to repay the IMF's loans, which had been skimmed off by Ukraine’s oligarch billionaires into secret bank accounts in Switzerland and other tax-havens.
Two of the four parties in Ukraine's ruling coalition have bolted, refusing those IMF terms on loan-repayment; and, so, on July 24th, Ukraine's Prime Minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, who had been appointed by Obama's agent Victoria Nuland, tendered his resignation, and he announced: “The fact is that today you failed to vote for the laws, and I have nothing (with which) to pay wages of policemen, doctors, teachers; nothing to buy a rifle with, nothing to fuel an armored personnel carrier with. Today you failed to take a decision to fill the gas storages to allow us to live through the winter, to at last free ourselves from dependence on Russian gas.”
A Ukrainian resistance member provided a chilling prediction of the recent shoot down of Malaysian Air MH17. A YouTube video posted on June 18, 2014 by Anti-Maidan tells the story. Resistance militia soldier Elena from Slavyansk describes the attacks on her city of 100,000 plus by the Ukraine army and the death and suffering those attacks caused. Then, she warns of a frightening tactic used by the Ukraine air force. Here's the text from Militia Soldier - Elena, from Slavyansk English Subs, Published on June 18, 2014, Anti-Maidan
Terrible things are happening. For example, an incident that happened recently. A passenger plane was flying by. A Ukrainian attack jet aircraft hid behind it.
Then he lowered his altitude a bit and dropped bombs on [the] residential sector of Semenovka town. Then he regained altitude and hit behind the passenger plane. Then he left.
They wanted to provoke the militia to shoot down the passenger plane. There would have been a global catastrophe. Civilians would have died. Then they would say terrorists here did it. There are no terrorists here. There are regular civilians here that came to the defense of their city.
Elena is not part of the propaganda war. She's not making arguments for this or that interpretation of the MH17 tragedy. She is simply describing a reckless air combat tactic used by Ukraine's military a month before the airliner was shot from the sky.
This video raises a very interesting question. Were commercial flights routed over Ukraine to provide Ukraine's air force with cover in order to attack military and civilian targets?

". . . corporations have no consciences, no beliefs, no feelings, no thoughts, no desires. Corporations help structure and facilitate the activities of human beings, to be sure, and their 'personhood' often serves as a useful legal fiction. But they are not themselves members of “We the People” by whom and for whom our Constitution was established."~Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, in his dissenting minority opinion against the Citizens United decision, January 2010
"Slavery is the legal fiction that a person is property. Corporate personhood is the legal fiction that property is a person." – Anonymous
In 2010, the NeoConservative, pro-corporate, anti-democratic Roberts Supreme Court “Gang of Five” granted inanimate corporations some of the rights and privileges previously only constitutionally guaranteed to human entities. The decision granted to corporations the right to influence political campaigns by unlimited and anonymous campaign “donations”, aka bribery.
Call it the "Tonkin Gulf Syndrome." First you fabricate a lie about an incident or its authorship to justify military action; then you quickly escalate hostilities; and war is irreversibly underway before anyone has time to think twice about it.
It's what the British Empire did to suck the U.S. into the Vietnam quagmire. It's what Tony Blair pulled off with his "dodgy dossier" about Saddam Hussein's non-existent WMD in Iraq, with George Bush in tow. It's what the British and Obama tried to do again last year with the Syrian government's supposed chemical weapons attack—which was derailed at the eleventh hour by strong opposition from outside and inside the U.S., much of it organized by LaRouche PAC. And it is what the desperate, bankrupt British Empire is once again trying to pull off around the MH17 incident in Ukraine, with a headlong rush towards thermonuclear confrontation between the United States and Russia.
