Crimean ‘Self-Defense’ Forces Take Over Navy HQ

From an unfazed Associated Press:

Crimean forces take Ukrainian navy HQ

By JOHN-THOR DAHLBURG | March 19, 2014

SEVASTOPOL, Crimea (AP) — Crimea’s self-defense forces [sic] on Wednesday stormed the Ukrainian navy headquarters in the Black Sea port of Sevastopol, taking possession without resistance a day after Russia signed a treaty with local authorities to annex the region.

"Without resistance." That is how Putin is going to re-assemble the entire Soviet Union.

An Associated Press photographer witnessed several hundred self-defense forces take down the gate and make their way onto the headquarters’ premises. They then raised the Russian flag on the square by the headquarters.

As a patriotic Crimean ‘self-defense’ force would. (Sarcasm.)

The unarmed Crimean self-defense forces waited for an hour on the square before the [sic] moved to storm the headquarters.

They were not "unarmed." They had Putin’s storm troops at their back. (In fact, they probably were Putin’s storm troops.) 

Following the arrival of the commander of the Russian Black Sea fleet, the Crimeans took over the building while Ukrainian servicemen did not offer any resistance.

The AP photographer was able to enter the headquarters and saw the Crimean self-defense forces roaming around while the Ukrainian servicemen were packing up and leaving…

Sadly, this incident also represents Obama’s current foreign policy in microcosm. And not just the case of Ukraine, but for the whole world.

Putin and other dictator thugs are taking over country after country, while the US sits back and watches, disarmed and helpless. (And Obama smiles.)

    Snowden announced a US program called Mystic built in 2009 that can listen in on world citizens phone calls via video lecture to Canada.

    I don’t know if Putin had a gun to his head or not, as it’s a move to turn other countries against us.

    Since, the US intelligence is saying he breeched military secrets and it will take billions of dollars and two years to fix, I dont’ think even with the ACLU defending him he will be stuck in Russia as they will never let him leave.
