Ukraine Uprising: U.S Hypocrisy + Russian Aggression VS. Movement of the Squares

This is a segment from the one-hour Resistance Report Pilot. Watch the full episode here. 


After two months of protestors in Maidan Square in Kiev, Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych has been ousted and yet, with support from Russia, remains defiant. As U.S Secretary of State offers aid to Ukraine, he managed to tell 
Face The Nation (with a straight face) ““You just don’t in the 21st Century behave in 19th Century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped-up pretext.”

As Glenn Greenwald, writing at The Intercept points out:  The supremely sycophantic Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer – as he demanded to know how Russia would be punished – never once bothered Kerry (or his other Iraq-war-advocating guests, including Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Washington Post columnist David Ignatius) by asking about any of that unpleasantness (is it hard at all for you to sermonize against invasions of sovereign countries given, you know, how often you yourself support them?)

Do the unfolding events in that country add up to a Revolution or an orchestrated coup? Kateryna Rubin, an expert in Ukraine and Russian history, joins the panel to discuss.

The Resistance Report panel for March 3 was made up of Nicole Carty (The Other 98%) Joel Northam (Acronym TV contributor) and Julianna Forlano(Absurdity Today). Dennis Trainor, Jr. served as host.

    Shieffer’s brother was ambassador to Oz, presumably working the Canberra /Texas conection to the Iraq invasion for Bush and the neocons.

    U.S. IZ the Nazis, und “Wir haben SCHULD” *
    Try Switzerland for a guaranteed livelihood; meanwhile the solution to crapitalism is cut off the 1% head; and the tail withers.
