Germany television’s equivalent to American TV’s “60 Minutes” last week aired a report which contradicts the Barack Obama and new Ukrainian administrations’ claims that ousted President Viktor Yanukovych is responsible for the sniper murder of over 100 Ukrainian citizens and police officers in late February 2014.
The story has become front page news in Europe and Russia, but for some reason has yet to be reported on any media outlet to the American people. There are two reasons men and women have a very legitimate questioning stance on this German report. Number one is that there has been a great deal of language coming out of Americans’ television sets which paints Russia as the aggressor who needs to become stopped, and the possibility of Russia going ahead to annex more land in Ukraine and other areas in the region.
There is the perception that Viktor Yanukovych is a mass murderer and has led, because the perception also views Russia and Yanukovych as co-conspirators, to possibly inaccurate negative views in America on both Yanukovych and Russia. This has resulted in an escalation of tensions to a very high degree, which increases the odds that violence will break out – and may bring an all-out civil war in Ukraine. It is important that those who were responsible for the killing spree in Kiev are found and jailed. The report out of Germany makes a strong case that Ukraine’s current transition government has, intentionally or unintentionally, mistakenly placed blame on Yanukovych and his Berkut security forces.
The German report has raised very serious questions about the top officials of Ukraine’s new government. Victims of the sniper murders in February left behind family members whose questions and requests from the new rulers have been denied, ignored, or stonewalled. The government has refused to turn over information requested by family members for autopsy reports, medical records, and answers to specific questions. Disturbingly, there could be a major coverup occurring in Kiev over the identity of those who were calling the shots of snipers whose actions, besides killing over 100 innocent human beings, resulted in the overthrow of a democratically elected president.
People have become concerned that perhaps such a coverup is occurring, and that the truth isn’t being genuinely sought. If the current Ukraine high officials were behind the sniper massacre, then 42 million men, women, and children in Ukraine have mass murderers for national leaders. Economics Professor Michael Hudson of the University of Kansas City – Missouri says in the video from The Real News Network that “this is the equivalent of the Bush administration’s lies about Saddam Hussein and Iraq’s “weapons of mass destruction” – used as a pretext for the horrifically tragic and extraordinarily deadly Iraq War.
Mr. Hudson shares a quote (Hudson finds Jimmy Carter the only politician from America speaking out) from former United States President Jimmy Carter last week: “The rest of the world almost unanimously looks at America as the #1 warmonger; that we resort to armed conflict almost at the drop of a hat.” On this blog’s post from the past week “One Hardcore Blog Journey”, a book by Mark Gorton – “The Dominance of the Cabal” – Gorton points out that, since John F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1963, every U.S. president has engaged in high criminality – except Jimmy Carter.
So the situation in Ukraine, if the allegations coming out of the German TV report are serious and credible, is such that it’s possible over 40 million Ukrainians have a national government consisting of premeditated murderers. The all-important questions regarding the continued resistance and effort to ignore, evade, and coverup the truth are in extremely serious need of answering – because there are real consequences for 40 million men, women, and children on this Earth.
Those who have listened to the intercepted phone call between the European Union’s Catherine Ashton and Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet from over a month ago may have become equally astonished by the total lack of surprise exhibited by Ms. Ashton after Mr. Paet told her that there were doctors who had treated sniper victims, notably Dr. Olga Bogomolets, who had spoken to him about the possibility that snipers were shooting both police officers and civilian protesters, and that it was not Yanukovych – but the new coalition government group – who was behind the massacre.
Mr. Hudson goes on to read a quote from Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee: “I think you should have thought about that before encouraging the protesters on the Maidan. I think some people (U.S.) didn’t think through all the consequences, and when it comes to grief, will you be there? You can’t be there since you have so many other interests to protect.”
Professor Hudson then says, “It’s as if Barack Obama is channeling Dick Cheney.”
What Barack Obama is not saying about Ukraine
Hudson asks why Barack Obama is not telling the American people his administration backed opponents to Russia that got out of hand. Or apologize because they’ve been killing innocent civilians, or that they’re acting illegally. Hudson wonders why the president isn’t apologizing because they’re kleptocrats, or for closing the East Ukraine’s Russian TV channels. Barack Obama isn’t telling Americans that the new Ukraine regime is engaging in bad behavior which is undemocratic.
The whole world is talking about the German TV Maidan Massacre story but there is a complete blackout in the United States. Professor Hudson believes the only reason for American media silence is that something very serious is going on. Americans are being given reporting that portray Ukrainians as “freedom fighters” standing up to the “Russian Bear” when, according to Professor Hudson, “it’s really a case of America trying to goad Russia into acting intemperately.” At the end of this interview Mr. Hudson states, “So, the question is: where are we going to go from here?”
In my humble opinion it is absolutely critical that the murderers who killed over 100 police and civilians in February in Kiev have to become located as quickly as humanly possible. It is increasingly apparent that an independent law enforcement group, consisting of a multi-national team of the world’s top experts in homicide, must become organized and sent to Kiev so that the truth is known. To be absolutely direct and honest, solving this mass murder case has to become the highest – repeat highest – priority of the world’s leaders, and the world’s people.
Readers may agree or disagree but – risking accusations of journalistic fear-mongering and over-the-top sensationalism – the impossible-to-overstate importance of finding the Kiev sniper murderers has direct consequences for the continuation of the human race. As one who has listened to a number of talks by Professor Michael Hudson, one senses that he is a sincere and straight-talking academic of high stature. In this interview, he shows visible signs of anxiety and shaken psyche for the first time. For this psychological state of being disheveled to overcome him is a sign that urgent and intense action is necessary.
In other words, this German TV expose on murderous actions in Kiev, Ukraine is larger in importance than any of us may even imagine.
Men and women will either ignore this information or use small to large extents of reason to decide on morally appropriate action(s). If you know a police officer, member of the military, or attorney, please seek advice on how to handle your response to this profoundly and potentially deadly serious information.
