Russian General: 'We Are At War'

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

In an interview published Feb. 5 by, Gen. Leonid Ivashov, the former foreign relations head of the Russian Ministry of Defense and current president of the Academy of Geopolitical Studies, issued a sharp warning about the nature of the strategic crisis unfolding in Ukraine:

“Apparently they [officials of the European Union and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry] have dedicated themselves, and continue to do so, to deeply and thoroughly studying the doctrine of Dr. Goebbels. . . They present everything backwards from reality. It is one of the formulas which Nazi propaganda employed most successfully: . . . They accuse the party that is defending itself, of aggression. What is happening in Ukraine and Syria is is a project of the West, a new type of war: in both places you see a clear anti-Russian approach, and as is well known, wars today begin with psychological and information warfare operations. . . Kerry and Obama are encouraging in Kiev what they harshly repress in their country. European leaders break up unauthorized demonstrations with hoses, throwing demonstrators in jail, while in the Ukrainian case they do the exact opposite, and on top of that they threaten Russia. Logically, this is part of information warfare.

“Keep in mind that, under the cover of information commotion, U.S. ships are entering the Black Sea, that is, near Ukraine. They are sending marines, and they have also begun to deploy more tanks in Europe. . . We see that on the heels of the disinformation operation a land-sea, and possibly air operation is being prepared.

“The scenario could be the following: drive Ukraine to the breaking point, blame Yanukovich and Russia for everything, to then say that NATO can’t simply sit by as a mere spectator, and then send its troops into to return order. Then a transitional government would be formed, as happened in Iraq and Kosovo, and NATO would take control of everything. Historical experience shows we have lived through similar situations. But before that they will need to justify the aggression with information warfare. . .

“They haven’t even taught [opposition leaders] Klitchko, Yatsenyuk and Tyahnybok to run a government efficiently. The main thing is for them to take power, and destroy the Ukrainian state.”

Currently in the Ukraine, there is a parliament in Kiev and a parliament in Kharkov.  The parliament stripped Yanukovych of his powers and impeached him but he says they dont have the powers to do that and refuses to step down.  The latest reports have the President in Donetsk.  There is actually no single person in charge over there. It’s chaos.  Everything about the ‘rebellion’ reeks of western puppetry and fascism.  Everything about the Yanukovych supporters of course reeks of Russia.  The Crimea is having massive protests right now in the streets because they want to join in union with Russia.  And Russia has stated it is prepared tosend in troops to protect ethnic Russiansof which there is 7-8 million of in Ukraine.  Things are very fluid and changing hourly.  Stay tuned..

      7-8 million Russians in the Ukraine will require a lot of “protection.”

    • Zed

      Attack Zion and ‘ALL OUR TROUBLES WILL BE OVER’!!

      • WeBeDoomed

        What? The underground city in the Matrix films??? :wink:

      • Joerg Klaemt


        Right on,I second that those are the Historical instigators same people that demanded the Death of Gods son and that Blaspheme him and wish Death to all Non Jews.
        Jesus threw them out of his Temple and so should we throw them out of our Society.

      • MC hammers

        Islamists would agree, Zed. How does it feel to be on the side of the head choppers?
        And to ‘anonymous’ – our sins caused the death of Jesus Christ,

        • Joerg Klaemt

          Not so MC hammers, Dont know your History do you? The Jews demanded his death and Pontius Pilate reluctantly bowed to their demands
          Same bunch that are still demanding death to Christians ,go and follow the provided Link,if you still dont get it you are either one of them or daft.


      Russia will win any war against America at any time.
      If Obama can manage to take the guns away from all the filthy Americans then it will be even easier for either Russia or China to just walk in and take over.

      • snakeyes37

        “If Obama can manage to take the guns away from all the filthy Americans then it will be even easier for either Russia or China to just walk in and take over.”

        What dream was that?

      • friends2you

        The filth lies with Obama and his cronies, not gun toting Americans who detest what America has become. Perhaps if there is another war like so many wars we have, the Russians and Chinese will win. It appears that the likelihood of this happening can only work if China is on board with Russia. We will see how this plays out. Allies for the US are very small now that Obama has become President. Its even possible in his deviant mind he played the American people like a violin always remembering his roots. Sneaky dog. So the US has few friends, no real money and lots of enemies. Perfect timing for change don’t you think?

        • Hannon

          Each side could nuke the day lights out of the planet, but no army or group of them has a prayer of having boots on the ground actually hold America, same goes for Russia. China I don’t know, that would be easier to hold because the country only has two rivers supplying the whole country with water. Two vials of bio weapons and the whole country just dies.

      • Welldunsheldon

        Yes Comrade,

        lets speak of our plan to take over American government. Make sure we speak of this plan in English so they know whats coming… :evil:

        I know People in Russia and they do not call us “Filthy Americans” They also know that our government has 2 completely different agendas.

        They prefer Obama over the REAL anti Russian side who mock Russians and went into a nuclear cold war with USSR over a international pissing contest.

        I love using this site as a reference to how crazy sockpuppet bloggers can get :lol:

      Dear General,
      You are not at war, you have to wait until the Olympics are over and then you can sent your troops to Ukraine and handle the situation.

      • DOOMSDAY!


        • Anonymous

          maybe they’ll kill some of those jews running the protests

        • Neanderthal

          The various PUBLICS of all these Western NATO countries and especially the US never gave their governments permission to go on offense as that ‘strategy’ being in their best long term interests. The elites decided to do it, and neither a Democrat or Republican administration was an impediment.

          What have the people done to protest their being trampled over?…Nothing. They have laid down on this, pretty much all over. The elites…have nothing but contempt for the public. And it is not entirely blameless, because politically…we have surrendered.

          Paul Craig Roberts

    • SickOfTheDumbshit

      Most of these corrupt bankers that are causing all the strife and hate in the world are jews but saying so would get you called anti semetic it says in the bible in the end nations will attack isreal like hornets i think they been planning all this for the better part of 2000 years and is finally coming to fruition but saying that would label you as anti semetic lmao these people are straight evil and i dont give two f**ks what anyone else thinks about what i wrote :D

      • snakeyes37

        You left out an important passage that follows that verse that you quoted from the Bible.

        It also says that God will destroy the nations that are attacking Israel.


        • mariusb

          get cancer jew………………………

        • Snowball

          The Bible is very clear that modern-day apostate state of non-Israel is NOT under God’s protection, but his curse.

        • snakeyes37

          mariusb, your Jew fetish clouds your intelligence. Or lack thereof, I suggest you increase your vocabulary beyond a single three letter word.

          Good day.

    • MLK321

      Not to defend Obama’s war mon gearing; this was, and still is, a Russian method, too.

    • ichabodcrane

      The US needs to stay out if this US troops will just go in and rape!

      • morris adams

        good! whatever it takes to keep the Caucasian bloodline strong.

    • Anonymous

      Obama is a fool. He should keep his nose out of it. If he doesn’t then we can expect serious blow-back upon the U.S. The U.S. cannot win this fight.

      • Neanderthal

        The neoconservative Victoria Nuland sits in her State Department office happily choosing the members of the next Ukrainian government. Is this US official oblivious to the risk that Washington’s meddling in the internal affairs of Ukraine and Russia could be triggering nuclear war? Are President Obama and Congress aware that there is an Assistant Secretary of State who is provoking Armageddon?

    • Bfintron23a

      More than likely the Russians will invade either Crimea or eastern Ukraine because of their Black Sea Fleet Base and thier sphere of influence.

      • Neanderthal

        This is a pipe dream. The experts are indulging in self-deception. Washington is the perpetrator of the crisis in Ukraine and intends to take over Ukraine for the precise reasons that the experts list.
        It is a perfect plan for destabilizing Russia and for negating Putin’s successful diplomacy in preventing US military attack on Syria and Iran. Essentially, if Washington succeeds in Ukraine, Russia would be eliminated as a constraint on US world hegemony, Only China would remain.

        • Neanderthal

          Let us get real just for 1 second in your life. Who wants war and why? The people? or who?
          Now there is your answer and who will be the blood? and who gets the Treasure? If I want something done I have to get the people behind the cause so the people are willing to die for it.

    • willhart

      What do you mean, US needs to stay out…the US is supporting this so-called freedom fighter movement. Where do you think those protesters got their funding, surely not from out of their own pockets? The whole idea that Power Elite, the alledged Illuminati and Bilderberg group, has in mind is to destablize the countries around Russia as they did the Middle East, at the same time transforming the US into a pacified, police state. There would be no Syrian rebels without the Power Elite pumping money and weapons in there..same with the Ukraine…

      This whole process is marching to WWII, which the military-industrial-financial complex is in desperate need of to divert American taxpayers away from the coming economic meltdown. Just watch..there is a timeline and you can predict when it is going to happen…

      • Neanderthal

        I thought they were getting their funding from the Falkland Islands.

      Translated as, he’s just realised they have been playing the eternal game of thrones. Everything we hear is spin from one side or another. Best plan is to not believe a word from any of them. We will never be free of it, until we cut them out of the loop and have a real democracy instead.

      We do not need to be governed. They psychotic who want to control everyone, do.


      • Mirabolin

        Democracy can go to hell.

        • CrowPie

          @ Mirror of berlin

          take your own advice.

    • AndreyE

      As russian I have no idea what Putin is thinking about.
      This is war, in a new format without missiles. So we should start all of our rockets and make you see how high they actually might fly, so to say make you national athem a true reality: “rockets fly high”, so that you realize that you don’t wake bear in the winter.
      But I’m dumb, and Putin will show you something new.
      We are here not afraid of nothing, we have been thru many wars, but will YOU be able to see what’s it like to live in a post-nuclear world? We actually live in such a world for MORE than 70 years now, it’s totatl slavery and misery here so bring it on.

    • blastticket

      Do you notice how the economy is slowly deteriorating while the prison grid is being set up all around us?
      You should take a look at this site:

      It breaks down the entire New World Order satanic agenda.
      -A must read for anyone interested in what’s going on and why.

    • bugler

      This article doesn’t pass the J test.

      The J test is intended to discard propaganda and manipulation articles.

      This article about corruption doesn’t expose the jewish criminal network it doesn’t pass the J test.
      If an article contains jewish propaganda like the nazi myth it must be considered jewish garbage.

      We want the truth and not jewish rubbish.

    • Sean

      Suckers in ww2 , suckers in ww3..Russia, China and America ALL have the same Rothschilds Central banks..funding both sides once again

    • Don't be hating!

      Anything to start a WAR. All broguht to you by the BANKSTERS/PENTAGON/and the CIA stooges. You all are truly sheep.

    • Jess

      Yes I think that the U.S. is very oppressive to it’s people it is a lousy place and needs to be

      overhauled. The people passing Laws are so barbaric and just making promises and stealing

      our country is broke and their is nothing to show for it

      I hate the people making laws that are going against everything thats right

      wanting to block clean air laws they should be ashamed for even expressing their twisted views and

      going against the laws of nature they need to be deported

      and thrown in prison they don’t belong in the US

      Russia would throw them out

    • Rico Millan

      Dear Russia, just send the American police force to the Ukraine. They will gladly break some skulls and kill any unarmed people they can find.

    • djskitzy

      oooh, haven’t they got a lot of oil?

      fancy that…..

    • tsimitpo

      The threat of nuclear weapons has been nothing but a disguised attempt to overthrow any government that wasn’t a puppet of the PetroDollar. The CIA is working on behalf of the desperate western central bankers to keep the PetroDollar alive so as many as possible are on it when they pull the rug out from under it to usher in their new currency.

      Jim Willie’s right on about this one – check it out.
