Steven Seagal discussing Ukraine on RT

Confused by the dynamics of the crisis engulfing Ukraine? Well there’s no need to worry because Russian state-funded propaganda outlet RT has an expert on hand to explain it all — 1990s action star Steven Seagal!

His grasp of geopolitics is impressive (from 3:00 in video below):

“It’s the European Union. It’s pressure that certain entities are getting from the European Union or stuff like that [sic]”

And surprising his enemies with this bizarre non sequitur, he also threatens to give Charles Moore a run for his money:

“If go you do your homework, you’ll see that Margaret Thatcher was pretty much thrown out of office because she refused to, y’know, sort of put the UN … European in.”

Along with the rest of Seagal’s output since 1998 this is going direct-to-video.

  1. So are you pro-CIA interference in sovereign states to overthrow democratically elected governments the US doesn’t like?

  2. I just just asked my doorpost the same questions and pretty much got the same answers. I think He has something here.

  3. The US was discussing potential candidates for appointment to an interim Ukrainian government weeks before the democratically elected Yanukovych was deposed. Some forms of democracy aren’t popular with the US. In particular, those where someone is elected they don’t like.

    And snipers who fired on demonstrators (and police) were evidently hired by forces in opposition to Yanukovych.

    Finally, the new interim parliament is populated in part by far right extremists who hate Jews and Russians and who are on record as issuing a call to arms against Russians with other terrorist groups.

    Based on the above Putin has plausible justification for responding to the call from the Crimea. Not that it seems he cares. And it’s equally obvious the Ukrainian overthrow of Yanukovych had more to do with CIA manipulation than peaceful demonstrators.

    After all, they only had to wait a year for an election where he could have been disposed of electorally. Or where the demonstrators afraid they wouldn’t win the election perhaps?
