White privilege, racism, micro-aggression, manspreading, the heteronormative patriarchy, income "inequality", "social justice", sexism, changing public service and military fitness/strength testing to accommodate weaker candidates), radical feminism, *** shaming, fat-shaming, thin-privilege (yes, that's apparently a thing now) are all considered "legitimate" by our intelligentsia and elitist politicians. Let's call all of it what it really is - it is a progressive sh!t-storm ginned up to destroy the individual. Look it it - it is all intended to keep any individual from expressing discrimination (properly defined as "choice"), recognizing the limitation or superiority of others or generally calling out the lack of success of this group or that group because we aren't supposed to notice the differences in people - that their successes or failures are the result of some collective and not individual skills, abilities or talent driven by individual want, need or desire. There is nothing "fair" or "equal" ab ...

Everyone seems to be making a big deal about Sony pulling the release of the film "The Interview" from theaters all over the country, due to growing concerns about threats from North Korea, terrorist organizations, etc. Most of the articles I've seen have focused on the aspect of "letting censorship win," or a theme along that line. But let's be honest for a minute here. Who seriously thought that a movie about assassinating our country's (arguably biggest) living enemy leader would be a good idea? And who thought it would be a good idea to make that movie a comedy? Imagine if during the Cold War someone had attempted to release a comedy about the assassination of Nikita Khrushchev, Leonid Brezhnev or Mikhail Gorbachev. How well do you think that would have gone over?

Last but not least On this day... It's over The Cuban Missile Crisis comes to a close as Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev agrees to remove Russian missiles from Cuba in exchange for a promise from the United States to respect Cuba's territorial sovereignty. This ended nearly two weeks of anxiety and tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union that came close to provoking a nuclear conflict. The consequences of the crisis were many and varied. Relations between Cuba and the Soviet Union were on shaky ground for some time after Khrushchev's removal of the missiles, as Fidel Castro accused the Russians of backing down from the Americans and deserting the Cuban revolution. European allies of the United States were also angered, not because of the U.S. stance during the crisis, but because the Kennedy administration kept them virtually in the dark about negotiations that might have led to an atomic war. Inside the Soviet Union, hard-liners were appalled at Khrushchev's withdrawal of the weapons. T . ...

Images Of Vienna - By: Roland Hussl Schönbrunn Palace Schönbrunn Palace is a former imperial 1,441-room Rococo summer residence in modern Vienna, Austria. One of the most important cultural monuments in the country, since the 1960s it has been one of the major tourist attractions in Vienna. The palace and gardens illustrate the tastes, interests, and aspirations of successive Habsburg monarchs. In the year 1569, Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian II purchased a large floodplain of the Wien river beneath a hill, situated between Meidling and Hietzing, where a former owner, in 1548, had erected a mansion called Katterburg. The emperor ordered the area to be fenced and put game there such as pheasants, ducks, deer and boar, in order to serve as the court's recreational hunting ground. In a small separate part of the area, "exotic" birds such as turkeys and peafowl were kept. Fishponds were built, too. The name Schönbrunn (meaning "beautiful spring"), has its roots in an artesian well from which water was consu ...

For those who study for a test on Chapters 1-4, here is a list of specific suggestions. On years and other dates. In general, students are expected to know the dates of the First and Second world wars, the Cold War years, the foundation of the UN, a "ballpark" range for the League of Nations (1920-1930s), and the years of the fall of the Soviet Union. Specifically, in relation to chapters 1-4, the students should know the years of the Marshall Plan (Ch 3), the foundation of NATO (Ch 2), the Cuban Missile Crisis (Ch 4), and the Maastricht Treaty (Ch 3). Names. Do you have to know the names of presidents, emperors, prime-ministers from the text? As a rule, if a name appears in the book, you have to be able to identify him or her after reading the materials. At the very least you have to identify these politicians and their key foreign-policy actions discussed in chapters 1-4: Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy, Joseph Stalin, Winston Churchill, Nikita Khrushchev, Adolf Hitle ...

Cataclysmic Attitude by Barak Obama I am disappointed with President Barak Obama for bully boy tactics. I have written to world leaders Ban Ki-moon, Navi Pillay, Rasmussen, Cameron, exposing the injustice perpetrated towards you. You (Russian President Vladimir Putin) have my undivided support against these monsters in sheep's clothing. I know you are very patient and fair. I like to ask will Obama if he would allow Russia anywhere near Cuba enjoying mutual peaceful fraternity? The answer is No. We haven't forgotten President Kennedy's anger and terror under similar circumstances to Ukraine when Nikita Khrushchev sent Russian submarines to Cuba. Just another windbag Barak Obama has become famous for the wrong reasons and should return the Nobel Prize for his tongue in cheek utterances since taking office as the most lame duck President. In Poland a member of the European Union another al kaeda in the making Obama said “the world does not want Russia to create its own empire and spheres of influence”. ...
I'm confused, which is something that is not unusual but, what continues to disturb me with the media is their reporters will not stop identifying this 21st century Republican group as "Conservative". Now, if Cruz, Scott, McConnell and their likes are conservatives, then what would you call Republican politicians as; Jacob Javits, Nelson Rockefeller, George W. Romney, Eisenhower and Jack Kempt. Bob Dole said, he thought he was a conservative until he heard Ted Cruz politics. I think somewhere along the way the media has confused political terrorists and saboteurs with the loyal opposition. I can remember when Russian premier Nikita Khrushchev warned us that we would destroyed ourselves from within. Well, it appears that some of us are trying to make Khrushchev's prediction a reality. But, just remember there would be no threat to America's well-being if all those non-patriots did not have the support of a foolish misguided and misinformed base. It is not our enemies inside the government who are putting . ...
Here's an interesting quote I heard on CNN from Sergei Khruschev, the son of Nikita Khrushchev former head of the USSR, who, in fact, gifted Crimea to the Ukraine in the 1950's: "If you are not recognized as equal, you challenge the other side." This was in reference to Putin's actions in the Ukraine but I thought it was an excellent idea to contemplate as we have been living through this very important, over 7 month transit of Mars/Libra (including its retrograde) - that has highlighted many inequities across the globe.
A rare glimpse into geopolitics for this project...) The three men briefly running the Soviet Union after Stalin’s death in March 1953 – Khrushchev, Bulganin and Mikoyan – arrive in Sofia in June 1955. A day earlier they had been in Belgrade, trying to heal the rift with Yugoslavia going back to 1948. In Belgrade Nikita Khrushchev apologised for the excesses of Stalinism without blaming Stalin for them. He appealed to Yugoslavia to re-join the Communist family of nations and cited Lavrentiy Beria, rather than Stalin as the instigator of the Soviet-Yugoslav split. Tito makes no response and the assembled crowd does not applaud Khrushchev. No such thing in Sofia. Since May 1955 Bulgaria has been a member of the Warsaw Pact. Quickly losing his authority, 'Bulgaria’s Stalin', Valko Chervenkov used the visit to demonstrate loyalty towards Moscow and stayed in power for another year till April 1956. His successor Todor Zhivkov had become the head of Bulgaria’s Communists the previous year, clearly ...
READ IT, OR DO NOT CLAIM IGNORANCE LATER ON. THAT'S AMERICA. "So far as violating sovereignty is concerned, Russia would point out that the U.S. invaded Panama to arrest Noriega, invaded Grenada to prevent American citizens from being taken hostage (even though they had not been taken hostage), invaded Iraq on spurious grounds that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction, targets people in other countries with drones, etc., etc. In other words, for the U.S. to preach about respect for sovereignty and preservation of territorial integrity to a Russian president can seem a claim to special rights not allowed to others."

We're thinking about dinner already, and our taste buds are craving tandoori chicken. But where did tandoori come from? According to Wikipedia: "Tandoori chicken originated in the restaurant Moti Mahal Delux of Kundan Lal Gujaral, in Delhi, India. The tandoori chicken at Moti Mahal so impressed the first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, that he made it a regular at official banquets. Visiting dignitaries who enjoyed tandoori chicken included American Presidents Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy, Sovietleaders Nikolai Bulganin and Nikita Khrushchev, the King of Nepal, and the Shah of Iran. The fame of tandoori chicken led to many derivatives, such as chicken tikka (and eventually the Indian dish popularized in Britain, chickentikka masala), commonly found in menus in Indian restaurants all over the world." So there you go!

(CNN) -- East versus West, capitalism versus communism: the Cold War lasted from the end of World War II until the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. Yet this war was at its height in the 1960s. That's the decade the Cuban Missile Crisis played out, the United States entered the Vietnam War to fight communist forces there, and President John F. Kennedy sent a team of Cuban exiles into Cuba's Bay of Pigs to try to overthrow leader Fidel Castro. Here are five other momentous events of the 1960s Cold War that you might not know: 1. The Soviets shot down an American plane and captured the pilot Why Russians are always the TV bad guys See inside a secret Cold War bunker From Sputnik to the Cuban Missile Crisis 1952: Eisenhower threatens nuclear action The United States had been flying U2 spy planes over the Soviet Union for some time to see if the Soviets were aiming missiles at America and to snap photos of local newspaper headlines.

A Message for Garcia It was hot yesterday, with temperatures over 26°C (80°F), a blazing sun and cloudless skies. Conditions in Normandy, only some two hundred kilometres away from where we live in Brittany were the same. For weeks, there has been only a single subject in the collective minds of France. The eyes of La Patrie are focused on Normandy. French television broadcast D Day ceremonies from morning until evening, and today Ouest France, the country’s leading daily and Sunday newspaper, devoted the initial pages to the signific ance of the ceremonies, and coverage of the more prominent participants, from Queen Elizabeth II, the sole monarch who actively participated in WWII, to Kate Middleton (who won countless hearts), and the veterans who paved the way for freedom in the 21st century. Some of the articles, of course, were about the leader of the free world, President Obama. Heavy coverage began when his helicopter arrival was anticipated on a helipad that would have done justice to the 18th g ...

Tonight on CNN 9pm, See what I experienced in 1960ty's. During the time I was in school, we lived life in fear and uncertainly because of the threat of Nuclear War. We would have school wide air raid drills, sometimes hiding under our desk or led down into the basement of the school to stand against the wall. I remember the News on TV saying we are on the verge of a nuclear war with the Soviet Union because of the missiles being sent to Cuba by the Soviets. Our President John F Kennedy stood his ground against the Soviet President Nikita Khrushchev [who said we will bury you] and gave him the ultimatum. I can remember people building bomb shelters in their backyards. I can remember being scared for our country. I can remember our Navy just off our coast taking up position to stop the Russian ships who were delivering the missiles to Cuba. When the Soviets turned their ships around, I can remember the relief not only in myself but everyone around me. Our country was on the brink of being decimated along wi ...

On April 17, 1961, 1400 Cuban exiles launched what became a botched invasion at the Bay of Pigs on the south coast of Cuba. In 1959, Fidel Castro came to power in an armed revolt that overthrew Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista. The U.S. government distrusted Castro and was wary of his relationship with Nikita Khrushchev, the leader of the Soviet Union. Before his inauguration, John F. Kennedy was briefed on a plan by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) developed during the Eisenhower administration to train Cuban exiles for an invasion of their homeland. The plan anticipated that the Cuban people and elements of the Cuban military would support the invasion. The ultimate goal was the overthrow of Castro and the establishment of a non-communist government friendly to the United States. Training President Eisenhower approved the program in March 1960. The CIA set up training camps in Guatemala, and by November the operation had trained a small army for an assault landing and guerilla warfare. José Miró ...

Crucial Questions and Answers: An Apologetics Catechism The Existence of God, Objection Question 5: Hasn’t science done away with the need to believe in God? Answer 5: Science can never prove that God does not exist. Comment: “Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will dig you in!” warned Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev at the height of the Cold War. This phrase has come to us as “We will bury you!” Some scientists and thinkers believe that is their goal concerning religion. They seem to believe in the inevitable triumph of science and rationality over religious belief and practice. Bertrand Russell said, “Religion is something left over from the infancy of our intelligence, it will fade away as we adopt reason and science as our guidelines.” As knowledge in the form of science increases, they reason, belief in religion or the supernatural will decrease. Science has made many wonderful discoveries over past one hundred years. Scientific theories have been proposed ...

Bangalore is known for its breakfast traditions and often you will hear bangaloreans fight who serves the softest idlis, cripy dosas or the yummiest chutneys – so let whats your favorite place for ‘thindi’? 1. Mavalli Tiffin Room (MTR) Mavalli Tiffin Room MTR was founded as a restaurant by Parampalli Yajnanarayana Maiya and his brothers in the year 1924. The food served at the MTR is a regular, wholesome Karnataka Brahmin fare and has its origins in the Udupi Brahmin cuisine of the coastal region of Karnataka. The decor is outdated, as more attention is paid to cleanliness and food quality than ambiance. For many years, the customers entered the restaurant through the kitchen so that they would be able to satisfy themselves about the restaurant’s cleanliness before they ate there. During World War II, MTR found it difficult to make idlis since rice was in short supply. According to MTR, they experimented with using semolina instead of rice and thus invented the very popular breakfast item of Rava ...
Iran nuclear talks: The 'trust but verify' dictate Vartan Oskanian Last updated: 1 hour ago We can only understand Iran's real intentions by engaging Iranians - not cornering them. Although the Iran nuclear talks are officially between Iran and the five UN Security Council permanent members plus Germany, at the core, this tug-of-war is between Iran and the United States. I can even picture the US and Iranian diplomats, alone, behind closed doors, working on drafts of the final document. The signs and posturing from all sides indicate that the US and Iran are serious, genuine and committed to reaching an agreement. The negotiations are being conducted quietly, and between rounds, the sides are displaying restraint and expressing cautious optimism. When the US, for domestic reasons, refused a visa to Iran's UN representative, Iran's response was measured. In the recent UN vote condemning Russia's actions in Ukraine, Iran did not come in on Russia's side, as it usually does. All this points to a very real op ...

Gusso began working for Angelo Roncalli when he was Patriarch of Venice. Gusso said that when he got a girlfriend, he went to the cardinal to make the case that he wasn't being paid enough. Roncalli considered what Gusso said, and replied, quoting Christ, that even the birds of the air are taken care of, “so you needn't worry.” Gusso remained in Roncalli's service. While Roncalli was cardinal, Gusso made a habit of kneeling before him and kissing his ring. But Roncalli eventually reacted, t . ...

KIEV, Ukraine (BP) -- Texas evangelist Michael Gott saw an unexpected opportunity and seized it when he yielded his preaching time on Easter morning to Ukraine's acting president, Oleksandr Turchynov.Ukrainians attending the service at a large and crowded Baptist church in Kiev were unaware that Turchynov, a fellow Baptist and an occasional lay preacher, would be there when they gathered to celebrate Christ's resurrection, Gott said in a statement provided to the Southern Baptist TEXAN. Turchynov, designated as acting president following protests and bloodshed in the former Soviet republic, spoke to the crowd for more than 20 minutes about his faith in Jesus Christ. He noted his deep appreciation for their prayers and referred to them several times as "dear brothers and sisters," Gott said.Gott, whose Michael Gott International ministry is based in Keller, Texas, is in Ukraine on an evangelistic tour with the Arkansas Baptist Master'Singers choir. He said he urged the president to take the opportunity to ...
FINAL Research paper An Identity in Question A Discussion of European Identity in the Cold War, 1945-1990 by Michelle J Bobincheck Dr. S. Rose History 353 April 23rd, 2014 The concept of a European identity is a theory which human beings the world over, struggle to comprehend. Many prime variables serve as contributing factors when discussing the meaning of truly being European, especially during the tense decades-long global standoff known as the Cold War. There is no singular defining moment which illustrates European identity during this era, and certainly no unifying catalyst. Rather, a construction of identity relies on perspectives of notable persons of the time. World leaders, for example, serve to provide insight into what would emerge as two parallel identities. This concept of identity is best discussed during the Cold War, as it is widely regarded as the most socio- and geopolitically anxious time period in modern history. These dualistic identities were thus forged through global trials of com ...

(CNN) -- Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II are to be made into saints this weekend in an unprecedented double papal canonization. While millions across the world remember John Paul II affectionately, John XXIII -- known as "The Good Pope" -- may not be as familiar. Here are five things you need to know about the much-loved pontiff. 1. He was born in poverty -- and proud of it Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli, the man who would become Pope John XXIII, was the third of 13 surviving children born to a family of farmers in the tiny village of Sotto il Monte, near Bergamo, northern Italy in November 1881. Roncalli left home to study for the priesthood at the age of 11, but even after he became Pope in 1958 at the age of 76 he eschewed the trappings of his position, and refused to take advantage of it either for himself or his family.

We Will Bury You without Firing a Shot Who knew 53 years ago when then Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev uttered these words, “We will bury you without firing a shot”, his prophetic proclamation would materialize amidst a cessation in apparent hostilities between the two countries. Just as Khrushchev presided over a system in which decisions came from the top and citizens were left to tremble with fear, thye same is true for the oligarchy Barrack Hussein Obama is attempting to establish in the United States of America! Doubt me, look at the way honest hard working Americans are being ridiculed and mocked as they attend the various town hall meetings and tea parties. According to high ranking Politburo member Nancy Pelosi these protesters are, “church-going rednecks attending the town hall meetings, and I've got to say they make me want to puke" President Obama is trying to make their lives better, and all they want to do is ask questions.

The War on Reason Perhaps it was my having been drawn to the arts from an early age, and that Liberalism is irrevocably concomitant to the art world. I’ve known many Liberals over the years, some of considerable talent, including liberal family and friends whom I dearly love. Unfortunately, Liberals have initiated a considerable amount of harm to our nation from their blind application of circular logic when trying to make sense of the world. To justify their policy positions and beliefs, Liberals must jettison the prescriptions of reason, historical fact, and acceptance of human nature. Many older Liberals can still recall media references to Nikita Khrushchev’s various disruptions of the United Nations General Assembly with fist pounding, shoe banging, and shouts of belligerence (“we will bury you”). In retrospect, Khrushchev may have known more about what was in store for us than he was given credit for; he later said the U.S.S.R. wouldn’t need to bury us, as we will bury ourselves. These ...

"Germany has dramatically changed its attitude towards Ukraine. The situation in the Crimea and Ukraine is now the most important topic of all the world media. The US press gives severely criticized Russia's actions. English newspapers evaluate everything that happens much softer, and the Germans, usually strong critics of the Kremlin, look almost like friends of Russia. It seems that Berlin could still change its aggressive stance on the Ukrainian question and is now ready to act as a mediator in the talks between Moscow and all the West. Experts believe that the chance can not be overlooked . Recently, a very influential newspaper Die Welt published a large amount of material, which explained in detail why Crimea is so important for Russia .

US and EU imposed sanctions against Russia on Crimea issue. Will the sanctions help ? It has been seen that sanctions only affect common man and regimes are very rarely affected, like in Cuba. Moreover, why did US and EU support Kosovo when it separated from Serbia under almost similar circumstances. It's a WIN-WIN situation for Russia which says it has corrected an historic mistake by taking back Crimea which had been part of Russia since 18th century until Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev transferred it to Ukraine in 1954. Also, the issue has made the world bipolar again after it had become unipolar following the breakup of Soviet Union in 1991. But has it started yet another Cold War ? And will dropping out Russia from G-7 affect it in any case ? Modern world cannot think of a new world economic order without Russia. Now the important question is---Should the situation be allowed to precipitate or stop it there. Ultimately who is affected---global economy is affected and developing countries face the br ...

Referendum on Crimea joining Russia - Will Russia and President Putin be able to reverse a historical decision? Crimea is a Ukrainian peninsula, home of Russia’s Black Sea fleet which allows Moscow to extend its military presence throughout the Mediterranean. The majority of its population is ethnic Russian, a quarter is ethnic Ukrainian and about 12 percent are Crimean Tatars. For centuries, Crimea was part of Russia, until 1954 when Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev gave the peninsula to Ukraine - at that time a Soviet republic. Khrushchev’s son Sergei said the decision to give Crimea to Ukraine had to do with economics and agriculture - the building of a hydro-electric dam on the Dnieper River which would irrigate Ukraine’s southern regions, including Crimea.

Columns Comment22 HOURS AGO BY YASMEEN AFTAB ALI Let Crimean decide for Crimea. Let Ukraine be Let’s establish some facts here first. One, Crimea was part of Russia till 1954 when it was presented to Ukraine by the Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev. Crimea has existed since as a semi-autonomous state but shares a historic and cultural umbilical cord with Russia. Recall also that Ukraine itself since the Middle Ages was part of the USSR till 1990. Two, Crimea is surrounded by the Black Sea – Russia’s sole warm-water port. The importance this holds for Russia cannot be undermined. Three, Ukraine produces grain much needed by Russia. Four, the pipes running through Ukraine serve as Russia’s lifeline, carrying its natural gas to Europe! Five; ‘ethnic Russians still make up 59 per cent of Crimea’s population of 2 million, while ...
The ottoman empire lost Crimea to the Russian empire back in the 18th century..Russia wrestled, and secure it from Hitler during his reign in the 1940s. I believe Russia and America were allies those days until the U.S. plots assassination -spearheaded by the Dulles brothers- of Hitler unbeknownst to Russia and thus the mistrust between both nation was born coupled with the U.S. fear of communists domination..so that brought us to 1954 Russian Premier, Nikita Khrushchev offered Crimea to the Ukraine without explaining what were the reason for the gift ..oh! Khrushchev was I believe from, or a grownup of the Ukraine ...so, who has legitimacy to the Ukraine? Maybe Cheney, McCain, Graham, Huckabee, and all these chicken-shawks who has nothing to say when Putin invade Georgia during George W Bush regime..
It's that time of day again, Ladies and Gentlemen, when I get on my Political Soapbox! Let's start with JFK. JFK had his calamitous meeting with Nikita Khrushchev in Vienna — a meeting The New York Times described as “one of the more self-destructive American actions of the Cold War, and one that contributed to the most dangerous crisis of the nuclear age.” (The Times admitted that a half-century later. At the time, the Newspaper of Record lied about the meeting.) For two days, Khrushchev batted Kennedy around, leaving the president’s own advisers white-faced and shaken. Kennedy’s Assistant Secretary of Defense Paul Nitze called the meeting “just a disaster.” Khrushchev was delighted to discover that the U.S. president was so “weak.” A Russian aide said the American president seemed “very inexperienced, even immature.” Seeing he was dealing with a naif, Khrushchev promptly sent missiles to Cuba . The Kennedy Myth Machine has somehow turned JFK’s handling of the Cuban Missile Cri .. ...

Shared By A Patriot WHEN JFK looked weak to Nikita Khrushchev, we got the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1963. When Jimmy Carter bear-hugged Brezhnev, we got the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. When Bill Clinton failed to stop Bin Laden for seven whole years, we got 9/11/01 in New York City. And when Obama clowned it up for the world, alienating our allies and bowing down to our deadly enemies, we got this week’s Russian invasion of the Ukraine. AND that’s only the beginning. Just you watch. Putin is establishing a naval presence in Venezuela and Cuba. He already has a major naval base in Syria. He wants to control Middle Eastern oil, and by making Iran and Saudi Arabia dependent on him, he might be able to do it. Obama has systematically dismantled Western and U.S. defenses, stabbed allies like Egypt’s Mubarak in the back, invaded Libya without a shred of justification, and backed murderous reactionary gangsters in Syria, Libya, Iran, and Egypt. Our president betrayed U.S. personnel in Benghazi, and pur . ...
Russia invades Crimea Or, did they? After the collapse of the Soviet Union, control of Crimea was turned over to Ukraine by Nikita Khrushchev. Although Crimea is an autonomous republic, it is governed under Ukrainian law. A treaty was signed by Ukraine and Russia that provided almost 100 Million a year to Ukraine in economic support. This treaty allowed Russia certain privileges pertaining to Crimea. The treaty allowed Russia to maintain a military force of up to 25,000 members within the borders of Crimea. It allowed Russia to operate 2 military airfields in Crimea. But most importantly, it allowed Russia the use of a seaport to house the Dead Sea fleet, a seaport by the way that is the only warm water seaport that Russia has. So, how did Russia invade Crimea when they have been there for 20 years?

"If people do not display wisdom, they will clash like blind moles and then mutual annihilation will commence" - Nikita Khrushchev
THE SEAN HANNITY SHOW Obama's Fantasy Foreign Policy March 03, 2014 Just a few weeks ago, the American people indicated that they no longer believed that Barack Obama was respected by other world leaders. Fast-forward to today and the latest in the crisis unfolding in Ukraine and it's easy to see why Americans believe this to be the case. Here are some of the latest updates on where things stand with the situation in Ukraine. - Russian troops have taken control of the Crimea region of Ukraine, which is the southeastern region of the country. You can read about how this managed to happen here in the Wall Street Journal, but here's a short recap: “The turn of events in Crimea shows how adroitly Moscow has used old allies and long-simmering resentments to fill a power vacuum left by the Feb. 22 overthrow of Ukraine's Russian-backed president, Viktor Yanukovych . By potentially transforming Crimea into a dubious unrecognized republic and destabilizing Ukraine's east, Moscow has gained a crucial lever of pow ...

Putin must fear a clash with the Tatars Askold Krushelnycky Published: 2 March 2014 soldiers in the Crimea during the war with Tsarist Russia (Roger Fenton) The Crimea is steeped in history. Britons associate it with the 19th-century war against Tsarist Russia, the disastrous Charge of the Light Brigade and battlefields such as Balaclava, Alma and Sevastopol. Russians recall how Crimea was annexed in 1783 by the Tsarist empire but given in 1954 by Nikita Khrushchev, the Kremlin leader, as a fraternal “gift” to the Ukrainian Soviet Republic. But few know that Crimea from the 13th century until the end of the Second World War was the homeland of the Crimean Tatars, a Sunni Muslim race of Turkic origin.

Ukrainian Muslims: Between the devil and the deep blue sea!

Crimea is also home to Crimean Tatars which have inhabited this land since the middle ages. They accepted Islam hundreds of years ago and live under the Ottoman Empire. Muslims lost this area to Russians in the Russo-Turkish War (1768–74) and there has been a history of persecution on Islam and Muslims since then. In 1944 after the World War II Joseph Stalin labelled these Muslims as collaborators (with Nazi Germany) and thousands were killed or forced exiled into neighbouring Uzbekistan, Kazakhistan etc. The forced exile of Muslims ...

Previously on the subject of sanctification I wrote about Believing the Word of God…, Building Your Faith.. So the Next step in Sanctification is learning to become a doer of the Word… James 1:22, 22Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.Friends, listen to me. That verse is probably as important a verse that you will find in the scripture when it comes to being the sanctified (set apart for God’s purpose) church of Jesus Christ. You can study the word. You can believe the word. But until you begin to put the word of faith into action it absolutely doesn't do you or anyone else any good.

Nikita Khrushchev a Ukrainian transferred crimea from Russian ssr to Ukrainian ssr as a gift in 54
Russia appears to be in the process of siezing Crimea and there are even rumblings of an invasion of parts of Eastern Ukraine where there is a Russian majority or maybe simply a large Russian minority population. For those who don't know, much of Eastern Ukraine is in fact populared by ethnic Russians. Further, Crimea was only made a part of Ukraine during the 1950's when, evidently, a drunken Nikita Khrushchev surprised everyone by transferring Crimea to Ukraine from some other Russian "Republic" (Khruschev himeself was one of those ethnic Russians from Eastern Ukraine). No one thought that the transfer of Crimea meant anything internationally at the time, just as no one would get too bent out of shape in Europe today if for some reason Toledo was ceded to Michigan by our Federal government. But when the USSR broke apart, suddently a lot of Russians were regretting Khruschev's long ago action. And now Putin is flexing his muscle and seems to be intending to steal Crimea and who knows what else. Almo ...

Comrade Lebedev to Nikita Khrushchev: "Please come back and tell Russians and Ukrainians are brothers"
THE ROAD TO WAR Feb. 28, 2014 The surging crisis in Ukraine is a dramatic example of how wars begin. Take arrogance, toxic nationalism, tribalism, moral outrage and profound miscalculation, mix thoroughly, and, voilà !, another great leap forward in the march of human folly. Russia just mobilized its western regions armed forces, an inevitable response to the growing turmoil in Ukraine. Most westerners are unaware that Ukraine is the cradle of Russian civilization and, when properly run, one of the world’s great producers of grains. Now that western Ukraine has fallen to anti-Russian, nationalist groups, Russia-oriented eastern Ukraine is also threatening to explode. This nation of 44 million is already de facto split into two parts. How Ukraine’s armed forces respond remains an important question. On Thursday their command vowed to resist any incursion by Russian troops, but loyalties remain uncertain. Unrest and some violence have now erupted in Crimea. Though 80% ethnic Russian, this high ...
Just in case you people Don't see this on Saif's link, read it here and now ._. Let's start from the beginning: Crimea is not a Ukrainian territory: nor ethnically nor historically. What most people don't know is... the historical background. Crimea at the beginning belonged to the native Tatars (neither Ukrainian nor Russian), then the Soviet Union cleansed it from them and took over. During the time when Ukraine was a part of the Soviet Union, Crimea was still Russian territory until Nikita Khrushchev presented Ukraine with it. However, the fact remains that the native population of Crimea is still and for a long period comprised only of Russians and Russian-speaking Ukrainians. It never was a Ukrainian territory. So in a matter of fact, Russia does have a lot to say and do about it, and it's none of our business. In these circumstances, saying that protecting one's own historical territories and people is an 'act of war' is nonsense, no! wait - its... yep: propaganda. Ukraine has become a military and ...

DID YOU KNOW THAT? In the Middle Ages, Ukraine was a key center of East Slavic culture, as epitomized by the powerful state of Kievan Rus'. The Golden Age of Kievan Rus' began with the reign of Vladimir the Great (980–1015), who turned Rus' toward Byzantine Christianity. His emissaries in Constantinople reported, "We no longer knew whether we were in heaven or on earth," describing a majestic Divine Liturgy in Hagia Sophia, "nor such beauty, and we know not how to tell of it." History reports that Vladimir himself was baptized in Korsum, a southern city in Crimea and his people (en masse) in the Dnieper River in Kiev in 988. Following its fragmentation in the 13th century, Ukraine was contested, ruled and divided by a variety of powers. A Cossack republic emerged and prospered during the 17th and 18th centuries. Catherine II of Russia officially abolished the autonomy of the Cossack state in 1764. Ukraine became part of the Russian Empire in the Russo-Turkish War (1768–1774), and later became a foundi ...
Among those attending the funeral was the late Nikita Khrushchev. He was reported to say; "See I told you so. We did bury you."
"...Let's set the record straight. There is no argument over the choice between peace and war, but there is only one guaranteed way you can have peace--and you can have it in the next second--surrender. Admittedly there is a risk in any course we follow other than this, but every lesson in history tells us that the greater risk lies in appeasement, and this is the specter our well-meaning liberal friends refuse to face--that their policy of accommodation is appeasement, and it gives no choice between peace and war, only between fight and surrender. If we continue to accommodate, continue to back and retreat, eventually we have to face the final demand--the ultimatum. And what then? When Nikita Khrushchev has told his people he knows what our answer will be? He has told them that we are retreating under the pressure of the Cold War, and someday when the time comes to deliver the ultimatum, our surrender will be voluntary because by that time we will have weakened from within spiritually, morally, and econo ...

Crimea’s post-Soviet history is a rocky one. Unilaterally handed over to Ukraine by Nikita Khrushchev in 1954 – in a move of dubious legality – Crimea was caught between Russia and Ukraine as the old USSR collapsed. In 1991, the Movement for a Republic of Crimea gathered 180,000 signatures on a petition calling for a popular referendum on Crimean independence, an informal "opinion poll" was held in which the modified demand for close relations with Russia passed overwhelmingly, and the elected Parliament adopted a resolution declaring Crimean sovereignty. Kiev responded to this with the threat of force, and at that point the bargaining began. The Crimeans, for their part, used the separatist threat to gain some leverage in the negotiations with Kiev: what they wanted – and got – was control over local resources, which were about to be "privatized" by the crooks in Kiev and looted by various Western Ukrainian oligarchs. The local oligarchs took exception to this, and in the end they won out: Kiev ...
Part2 Crimea Two separate rallies, consisting of several thousand protesters, faced each other in front of the parliament building in the Crimean capital, Simferopol. Two people have died as a result of scuffles and stampede and about 30 were injured, before the head of the Mejlis, Refat Chubarov, called for the participants of the rally to go home peacefully. While the Mejlis represents only around 20 percent of the minority, they claim to be the voice of the whole Tatar population. Many of the Crimean Tatars actually participated in the stand-off on the side of pro-Russian forces. Following the example of Kiev, vigilante groups are being formed, with about 3,500 people already patrolling the streets of Crimea along with police to prevent any provocations. After the central government in Kiev disbanded the Berkut special police task force, new authorities in Sevastopol have refused to comply and welcomed all Berkut officers who feel intimidated to come to live in Crimea with their families. Sevastopol ea ...
Ukraine, Russia and the 21st century Crimean almost-war: It's complicated J BROOKS SPECTOR WORLD 03 MAR 2014 01:42 (SOUTH AFRICA) Seemingly out of nowhere, Ukraine and Crimea are now at the centre of the international landscape in a way that has not been so since the Roosevelt, Stalin and Churchill met at the Crimean resort of Yalta, just before the end of World War II in Europe, to set out the continent’s future. The overthrow of a Ukrainian president Yanukovych has made the ancient fault-line between ethnic Russians and Ukrainians a key element of the conflict in Ukraine. J. BROOKS SPECTOR tries to untangle it all. For many years, on a wall in my father’s home was one of those hand-tinted portrait photographs from an earlier age. It was his father (and thus my grandfather) when he was about nineteen years old. He was in one of those formal poses much favoured by men in those days and he wore an Russian imperial army uniform. He stood in front of a few potted palms and was smoking a cigarette, perha ...
Our military is being slashed to Pre-WWII size and Russia invades the Ukraine? Putin is quick becoming a Nikita Khrushchev! This is turning into a diplomatic catastrophe for this administration... What's next Vlad? Invade Poland?
I have just discovered why Nikita Khrushchev (former leader of the Soviet Union) donated Crimea to Ukraine. He was Ukrainian. It is now the high time that Vladimir Putin corrects that historical anomaly. Our prayers are with him as he endeavors to do the right thing.
Crimea an autonomous region was a gift to Ukraine to mark the 300th anniversary of ukraines merger with the Russian empire by then Soviet Leader Nikita Khrushchev in 1954 and guess what the dare devil wants it back.
Gold Climbs to Four-Month High as Ukraine Tension Boosts Demand By Nicholas Larkin and Glenys Sim Mar 3, 2014 3:00 PM GMT+0500 Gold advanced to a more than four-month high in London as concern of a conflict between Russia and Ukraine boosted demand for a haven. Silver climbed. Ukraine put its forces on combat readiness over the weekend after Russian President Vladimir Putin got parliamentary approval to send troops into its southern neighbor. U.S. President Barack Obama warned Russia not to intervene and Secretary of State John Kerry travels to Ukraine today to offer support as Russian troops occupy the Black Sea region of Crimea. Bullion is the fourth-biggest gainer in 2014, after coffee, lean hogs and corn, on the Standard & Poor’s GSCI Index of 24 commodities as unrest in Ukraine and signs of slower economic growth boosted demand for a store of value. Gold rebounded from a 28 percent drop in 2013 as U.S. economic data from factory output to retail sales missed estimates just as the Federal Reserve st ...
Ukraine Reinforces Army Amid Outcry at Russia’s Crimea Grab Ukraine mobilized its army reserves and called for foreign observers in Crimea after Russia sparked international outcry by seizing control of the Black Sea region. Hundreds of unidentified gunmen arrived outside a Crimean army base today even after Ukraine put its military on full combat alert and invited European Union and NATO observers to the country. Russian President Vladimir Putin yesterday got lawmakers to rubber-stamp troop deployments, a move that prompted U.S. President Barack Obama to protest his “clear violation” of Ukraine’s sovereignty in a 90-minute call. The U.S. warned today of possible sanctions against Russia. “We urge President Putin to pull back his military forces,” Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said today in a televised address. “If President Putin wants to be a president who started a war between two neighboring friendly nations, he can reach that within several inches. We are on the brink of di ...
The truth, (Pravda), about Crimea; It belonged to Russia until 1964. This is when, Ukrainian born, Russian President, Nikita Khrushchev, gave the territory to the Ukraine. It so infuriated, the Russian People...he was not even aloud to be buried in Russia!, the country in which he serve in, as President.
Putin Russia! When Putin was in KGB, he learned some lessons from Ukrainians, the likes of Nikita Khrushchev, and Leonid Brezhnev He can relate to the history!
Putin takes on West over Ukraine: who blinks first? by elizabeth piper MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has taken a gamble on Ukraine and is betting that U.S. President Barack Obama will blink first. Wounded by a personal political defeat in a battle for influence over Russia's Slavic neighbour, Putin is fighting back, and presenting the crisis as a question of symmetry. In his view, the West "stood by" and allowed armed men to direct events in the capital Kiev - now he is "standing by" as armed men extended their control over the Crimea region. The former KGB spy blames the West for stirring passions in Kiev, encouraging an opposition to break agreements to restore peace and allowing what Moscow calls "extremists" and "fascists" to dictate political developments in Ukraine. Now authorised by parliament to deploy Russia's military in Ukraine to protect national interests and those of Russian citizens, Putin is taking on a West he feels has cut Moscow out of talks on the future of Russia ...

The Crimea is not a territory of Ukraine and Mr Putin just correcting the mistake of Nikita Khrushchev,that's it...
I've been asked to post my thoughts on the situation in the Ukraine and the Russian response. This is a long post, so click on "continue reading." First, if you can get a copy of the March 20 issue of the New York Review of Books, there's an excellent review by John Gray of David Runciman's book The Confidence Trap: A History of Democracy in Crisis from WW I to the Present. His article, "The Dangers of Democracy" is not available on line. There are two apropos quotes from the review: 1) "In general, the spread of democracy has often set off movements for secession, as groups that fear becoming permanent minorities struggle to establish their own states. In interwar Central and Eastern Europe, parts of postcolonial Africa, and post-Tito Yugoslavia, the emergence of democracy was accompanied by intense civil and ethnic conflict." 2) In warning that multinational democratic states often become illiberal, he states "There is no prospect of a democratic equivalent of the Hapsburg Empire, which protected civi . ...
Reliable intelligence on the Ukrainian situation is extremely difficult to acquire. I have read U.S., European & Russian news and the stories are, not surprisingly, wildly contradictory. As best as I can surmise, when Yanukovych refused to sign a pro-west agreement and announced that he favored closer ties to Russia, his support in the Rada or legislature evaporated. Anti-Russian protests were apparently infiltrated by some organized militias, who shot at police and threw at least some Molotov cocktails. There were reports of well organized military actions aimed at occupying government buildings. Rumors flew that these groups were Western backed. Of course, true or not, no support for the claims is likely. Simultaneously, the Rada removed Yanukovych from office. Claims that it was in fact a coup are, not surprisingly, discounted in the West and generally believed in Russia. That he felt it necessary to flee argues for a coup. In democracies, ex-presidents retire and make millions on the speaking ...
Crisis and escalation (1953–62) Main article: Cold War (1953–1962) NATO and Warsaw Pact troop strengths in Europe in 1959 Khrushchev, Eisenhower and De-Stalinization In 1953, changes in political leadership on both sides shifted the dynamic of the Cold War.[116] Dwight D. Eisenhower was inaugurated president that January. During the last 18 months of the Truman administration, the American defense budget had quadrupled, and Eisenhower moved to reduce military spending by a third while continuing to fight the Cold War effectively.[16] After the death of Joseph Stalin, Nikita Khrushchev became the Soviet leader following the deposition and execution of Lavrentiy Beriya and the pushing aside of rivals Georgy Malenkov and Vyacheslav Molotov. On February 25, 1956, Khrushchev shocked delegates to the 20th Congress of the Soviet Communist Party by cataloguing and denouncing Stalin's crimes.[117] As part of a campaign of de-Stalinization, he declared that the only way to reform and move away from Stalin's pol ...
If I were Rep.Carl Ford, I would go "Nikita Khrushchev ",POUND MY SHOE on the lectern, and shout "ALL TEACHERS GET A RAISE!"
Old people like myself can remember Nikita Khrushchev tell Richard Milhous Nixon (you always use the middle name of a convict like James Earl Ray to distinguish from all the honest Richard Nixons of the world...but i digress!) that the Commies WOULD BURY US Well not too worried since they only lit up FOUR RINGS?
