General George S. Patton:
“The difficulty in understanding the Russian is that we do not take cognizance of the fact that he is not a European, but an Asiatic, and therefore thinks deviously. We can no more understand a Russian than a Chinaman or a Japanese, and from what I have seen of them, I have no particular desire to understand them, except to ascertain how much lead or iron it takes to kill them. In addition to his other Asiatic characteristics, the Russian has no regard for human life and is an all out son of bitch, barbarian, and chronic drunk.”
Statement by Patton on 8 August 1945, as quoted in “General Patton : A Soldier’s Life” (2002) by Stanley P. Hirshson, p. 650
Also, as I posted earlier, he wanted to take Moscow in 1945 and free the rest of Europe. That’s why they assassinated him.
“I understand the situation. Their (the Soviet) supply system is inadequate to maintain them in a serious action such as I could put to them. They have chickens in the coop and cattle on the hoof — that’s their supply system. They could probably maintain themselves in the type of fighting I could give them for five days. After that it would make no difference how many million men they have, and if you wanted Moscow I could give it to you. They lived on the land coming down. There is insufficient left for them to maintain themselves going back. Let’s not give them time to build up their supplies. If we do, then . . . we have had a victory over the Germans and disarmed them, but we have failed in the liberation of Europe; we have lost the war!” — Patton. Prior to his assassination by the Soviets.
This is really strange b/c the Russian Federation is extremely anti-nationalist. Their whole shtick is that of the Borg from Star Trek. They invade surrounding cultures and murder people until the survivors start calling themselves “Russian.” This has been happening since Mogolian/Finno Ugric kingdom of Muscovy subjugated the Slavic kingdom of Novgorod.
First school day in Mariupol. Russian tanks are 30 km away from this school – via S. Karaziy #UkraineUnderAttack
Imagine what the political rhetoric could b if #Ukraine’s Poroshenko announced his own plan 4 a Donbass referendum in April, as I suggested.
We don’t have to fight. We just have to rapidly sell nukes to eastern Europe.
The fools in the west spent decades on disarmament only to have Obama demonstrate to the world, that the only defense of one’s borders and people is nuclear weapons.
Obama is the greatest advocate for the proliferation of nuclear weapons in history.
Russia could not touch Ukraine if it was nuclear armed. Moscow is an easy target.
The United States has expended all its credibility supporting Israel and fighting its enemies. Because of this, Europe has become unstable, the post-war order has fallen apart.
#Ilovaisk massacre Rus open humanitarian corridor Rus shoot Hundreds upon hundreds World cares? Its just Ukrainians http://t.co/VcxFbxZd9l
Russian journo: lots of Russian soldiers & officers (who’ve even moved into apts) in #Donetsk. We’re now occupiers
Upon occupying Ukrainian town of Novoazovsk in Donbass Oblast Russian troops wasted no time and distributed printed instructions among the populace. According to RNBO‘s spokesperson Andriy Lysenko, these materials instruct the locals how they should behave from now on.
Here is what your life should look like if you happened to be in “liberated” territory:
1. Under no circumstances you should obstruct the free movement of Russian troops (vehicles and staff).
2. Show your friendly intent to Russian troops. Show them how happy you are to see them. Remember, they are here to liberate you from terrorists serving in illegal Ukrainian army.
3. In liberated territory, communicate in Russian only, so that Russian peacekeepers would not misunderstand your intentions.
4. Prepare the lists of persons serving in Ukrainian army, participants of Maidan, activists of civil rights groups and leaders of ethnic minority groups and give these lists to the FSB (modern Russian KGB) during the peacekeeping operations.
5. Be ready to vacate your appartments and other living quarters to provide living space for the Russian Army members.
6. Follow the curfew and inform local military police of Russian Federation about those, who break the curfew.
7. Citizens helping to locate and capture Ukrainian terrorists will be allowed extra rations and privileges.
8. Believe: the Ministry of Defense of Russian Federation guarantees your safety. No one will be shot for nothing.
As I’ve said before, Ukraine can be an armed society, or a Russian society. #guns4ukraine
The United States expended all its credibility on stupid Middle East wars. Has little left for #ukraineconflict .
I process two returns today. Quick, efficient, polite.
My friend who runs Ukraine’s retail bitcoin agency has been under DDOS attack, and now has had his Youtube channel terminated.
Not long ago, Vladimir Zhirinovsky — the Russian member of parliament and court jester who sometimes says things that those in power cannot — argued on television that Russia should use nuclear weapons to bomb Poland and the Baltic countries — “dwarf states,” he called them.
As our source correctly predicted yesterday, the Russian army did open fire on UA forces from #Ilovaisk leaving via ‘agreed’ upon corridor
Looks like Poroshenko was played. He thought he had a deal to exchange Russia POWs for UA ones but Russians were released & he got nothing
