Ukraine: Useless Sanctions And Then What? Moon of Alabama

And must have whiskey

Oh, you know why

 

Today the U.S. sanctioned Clearia Toiletskaja, chief janitor of the Kremlin and other Russian personalities near to President Putin. Should Putin not react to this the U.S. will take more serious measures.

The professed purpose of these sanctions is to make Russia stop what it is allegedly doing in east Ukraine. But Russia is not doing anything in east Ukraine. The White House, in cooperation with the New York Times, attempted to fake evidence thereof but even that did not work. Russia is simply doing nothing.

Maybe that is the real problem the White House has and maybe that is the real reason for piling up sanctions. Russia must be made to do something. Could it not finally march into east Ukraine and thereby give the dearly desired justification to start a big war in Europe? Please Putin, do something. Otherwise the White House will have to put up more sanctions and then even more only to be laughed out of Europe where none of the big players is willing to follow down that path.

The project of capturing the Ukraine, to then kick Russia out of the Crimea port, to then be able to kill off Syria is failing. But the neocons are not known for giving up. What is Obama going to do next?

News of the band’s reunion is surprising given the tumultuous relationship between co-founders Peter Doherty and Carl Barat. However, in an interview with Israeli newspaper Ynet, Doherty was quite candid about his motivations for a reunion, as he revealed he has “financial problems.” He said, “Not long ago I listened to The Libertines songs on YouTube and had a burst of nostalgia so I said what the heck, and then they told me how much they will pay us and I cannot lie to you I couldn’t say no, at least not in my state right now. I was recently called to family law court after a young girl I knew had told me I was the father of her baby. I have a year and a half old girl and I need to pay a lot of alimony, I’m in debt. It’s very complicated for me to say no right now, I have financial problems.”

Is Josh Homme a Badass? Yes, he is!

If we learned anything from Queens of the Stone Age‘s recent “Smooth Sailing” music video, it’s that Josh Homme is about as badass as his songs make him out to be. But that’s not the only piece of evidence. The QOTSA, Kyuss, and Them Crooked Vultures affiliate is known to speak his mind and has given us some rather epic moments over the years — that is, when he’s not hanging out with Alex Turner of the Arctic Monkeys. Following suit with our recent overview of Dave Grohl through images, check out these photos and GIFs that capture Homme at his very best.
