    This is how deluded you are. You are willing to believe that an African-American president is supporting racist skin-heads.

    LMFAO. Well played.

    No you didn't you posted a truth-out.org article that cherry picks a portion of a NY Times article and then makes the claim.

    Here is an article from the actual New York Times.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/09/world/europe/ukraines-jews-dismiss-claims-of-anti-semitism.html
    But instead of reeling in panic at any fascist resurgence, the Jewish community of Dnipropetrovsk, one of the largest in Ukraine, is celebrating the recent appointment of one of its own, a billionaire tycoon named Ihor Kolomoysky, as the region’s most powerful official.

    BTW this is the actual final three paragraphs in the referenced NYT article.
    The fighting for Donetsk has taken on a lethal pattern: The regular army bombards separatist positions from afar, followed by chaotic, violent assaults by some of the half-dozen or so paramilitary groups surrounding Donetsk who are willing to plunge into urban combat.

    Officials in Kiev say the militias and the army coordinate their actions, but the militias, which count about 7,000 fighters, are angry and, at times, uncontrollable. One known as Azov, which took over the village of Marinka, flies a neo-**** symbol resembling a Swastika as its flag.

    In pressing their advance, the fighters took their orders from a local army commander, rather than from Kiev. In the video of the attack, no restraint was evident. Gesturing toward a suspected pro-Russian position, one soldier screamed, “The bastards are right there!” Then he opened fire.

    Nothing there about the United States Supporting Neo-****. Your "Truth" out author takes this one statement and comes to unsubstantiated far reaching conclusions.

    This guy sounds like a member of the Tea Party.
    The highest-ranking right-wing extremist is Deputy Prime Minister Oleksandr Sych, also a member of Svoboda, who believes that women should "lead the kind of lifestyle to avoid the risk of ****, including refraining from drinking alcohol and being in controversial company." This is the philosophy underlying one of his "legal initiatives," according to the Kyiv Post, "to ban all abortions, even for pregnancies that occurred during ****."

    The West, The Greatest Cause Of War In Human History, Stands Stripped Of All Legitimacy
    By Paul Craig Roberts

    September 01, 2014 "ICH" - The Donetsk National Republic States The Facts

    “Every time you come to Russia with a sword, from a sword you will perish.”

    The former Russian provinces, which Soviet party leaders carelessly attached to Ukraine at a time when it seemed to make no difference as all were part of the Soviet Union, are now independent republics with their own governments. The West pretends that this isn’t so, because Washington and its puppet capitals don’t recognize the independence of formerly captive peoples. But the West’s opinion no longer counts.

    In the last couple of days the newly formed military units of the Donetsk National Republic have defeated and surrounded large portions of the remaining Ukrainian military. Russian President Putin asked the Donetsk Republic to allow the defeated Ukrainians to return home to their wives and mothers. The Donetsk Republic agreed to Putin’s mercy request as long as the Ukrainians left their weapons behind. The Donetsk Republic is short on weapons as, contrary to Western lies, the Donetsk Republic is not supplied with weapons by Russia.

    Washington’s puppet government in Kiev declined the mercy extended to its troops and said they had to fight to the death. Shades of **** at Stalingrad. Western Ukraine has remained the repository of **** since 1945, and it is Western Ukraine with which Washington is allied against freedom and democracy.

    Why is it lame? Paul Craig Roberts has credibility.

    Dr. Paul Craig Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy and associate editor of the Wall Street Journal. He was columnist for Business Week, Scripps Howard News Service, and Creators Syndicate. He has had many university appointments. His internet columns have attracted a worldwide following. Roberts' latest books are The Failure of Laissez Faire Capitalism and Economic Dissolution of the West and How America Was Lost.

    The headline is reason enough.

    The rest of it is just sad. His recent work is little more than the rantings of someone who has lost it and no longer is taken seriously except by the loony fringe.

    Right, he is no longer taken seriously by establishment people because he speaks the truth.
