yes, and their minority Ukrainian population faced genocide
So we are here again. Please, read dictionary. Please, tell me that 600,000 Russians who fled Ukraine (UN data) were subject to genocide.
ethnic cleansing is a form of genocide
Spare me your overt support for ethnic cleansing through aggressive wars and the targeting of all non-Russians.
What Russia did in South Ossettia, the Crimea, and is currently doing in Luhansk and Donetsk clearly fall within the ICC definition of genocide:
...any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:
(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
Now - ad nauseam? Repeating dumb posts? Lying again?
Ethnic cleansing can only be accomplished through genocide, that is why the Turks are destroying the Kurd cities and killing the inhabitants, and that is why the Ukrainians haven't stopped their bombardment of the homes and infrastructure in the Donbas. But they are not the only ones, it has been going on in Syria by ISIS and the Turkish supported Al Nusra...as well as some groups we support. This is why so many Christians have been killed.
The bombardments of the Yemenis by Saudi Arabia, and that of the Israelis can also be called ethnic cleansing... as well as the terrorism of the Palestinians towards the Israelis. Also what the Albanians did under Clinton and Albright in the former Yugoslavia, especially in Kosovo was also ethnic cleansing.
On a whole terrorism is an ethnic cleansing method since its meant to frighten certain groups of people to either leave or convert. Anyway I agree with you... even though your views have always been one sided.
Thank you for making my day bro
If you're going to use Paul Craig Roberts and the like, you should always back up their claims with solid evidence. Otherwise, people will simply dismiss it all and then you're just preaching to the choir. Roberts is understandably just concerned about a Killary presidency.
Dr. Craig Roberts has been very concerned about Pres. Obama's actions towards Russia for years now, and he's not the only one. Dr. Stephen Cohen who is the foremost expert on Russia has also expressed the same concern. Both have decades of knowledge and experience with Russia, and find faults not with any of Russia's actions which have always been purely defensive, but by Washington actions... which have not been.
Roberts said right from the start that Washington is leading us into a world war, and even though I knew Russia would react the same way as us if we were similarly treated, I didn't realize how serious it was until I read yesterday about the systems that were being placed in Romania and Poland.
This is why Cohen freaked. He said that Putin will be forced to get rid of those in the government who want to continue relations with the West, and put itself on a war footing to please the Generals and Nationalists who feel very offended by Washington's provocations and lies.
To be honest, it scares me. Too much is going on.
Stupid Americans...the global superpower. Haha...
t reminds me of the typical playground bully - thick as (*)(*)(*)(*), but the muscle enables him to dominate the other kids. Not only are Americans stupid, they're dangerous too. Jesus I never thought I'd ever say that.
Gawd I am so glad I live on this side of the world.
