More 'Mysterious Snipers' Responsible For Latest Ukraine Escalation?

Tensions are rising yet again in Crimea as the first Ukrainian military death has taken place on the Peninsula since the crisis began.

As the BBC reports:
An eyewitness told the BBC that armed men arrived in two unmarked vehicles, storming the base in Simferopol and firing automatic weapons. 
The Ukrainian government said a junior officer who was on duty in a park inside the base had been killed and another officer injured. A third serviceman had leg and head injuries after being beaten with iron bars, it said. 
The government said the commander of the unit was captured by men wearing Russian uniforms. 
Defence ministry spokesman Vladislav Seleznyov told Reuters the attack was by "unknown forces, fully equipped and their faces covered".  
The Ukrainians had had their IDs, weapons and money confiscated, he said.
A slightly different description of the assailants comes from the Independent, which describes them as being “dressed in Russian camouflage kits and balaclavas.” This description, of course, is not exactly the same as Russian uniforms.

In addition, The Independent also acknowledges that “there were indications that it was the separatist Crimean government’s recently created 'Self Defence Forces' who had actually carried out the fatal attack.”

The manner in which the assailants were dressed as well as the fact that the vehicle they arrived in was unmarked, seems to suggest a force other than Russian soldiers to blame for the incident. Russian military troops and their vehicles tend to be clearly marked as is the case with most military forces.

Evidence does suggest the possibility that these individuals could have been affiliated with local pro-Russian Self-Defense Forces. However, evidence also points to the distinct possibility that the confrontation was not initially intended to be a violent one from either side.

This is because there is information suggesting that the violence was not initiated by Russian forces, self-defense militias, or Ukrainian troops at all. Reports from both the Independent and BBC suggest that the culprits who both initiated the violence and were responsible for the death of one Ukrainian soldier and one pro-Russian militia member were actually unidentified snipers who fired from residential buildings.

Local officials have referred to these shooters as “fascist snipers” suggesting that Crimean authorities suspect them of having loyalty to the Western-backed regime in Kiev. These snipers allegedly fired at both Ukrainian troops and pro-Russian self-defense forces, creating casualties on both sides and triggering a string of violent events that led to the assault of the Ukrainian soldiers and the death of these two men.

Snipers firing indiscriminately into a crowd of demonstrators and police or otherwise highly charged situation for the purposes of creating violent confrontations and initiating destabilizations have been a factor in several of the latest Western-directed color revolutions and coup campaigns. For instance, Syria, Egypt, Iran, Venezuela, and now Ukraine have all experienced this phenomenon.

Regardless, escalation of the crisis has certainly been achieved as Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk recently stated at an emergency meeting that "The conflict is shifting from a political to a military stage. Russian soldiers have started shooting at Ukrainian military servicemen and that is a war crime."

It is also important to remember the recent alleged leaks of emails coming from the U.S. Army Attaché Assistant in Kiev, Jason Gresh, which suggest that there are plans to conduct a number of attacks on Ukrainian military bases in order to destabilize the situation on the ground inside the country. Although the emails have not been confirmed as true, one must clearly look at the situation devolving in Ukraine as a prime candidate for such a false flag attack to take place.

Developments will continue to be monitored.

If anyone redrew borders of Europe, then it was England, Germany, and Euro-America, with England and Gibraltar, and who knows where else on Europe, and the English did this in Many Non European Countries.

Then it was Germany with the Saarland Referendum to join West Germany, and then East Germany and West Germany to make one Country, and Czechoslovakia became the 2 Countries of the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Then there was the redrawing of Yugoslavia, where Euro-American Countries, most notably Germany recognize Illegal Independence Declaration from those who were Germany's Allies in WW 2.

Then there was the Illegal support and recognition of the Kosovo Albanian Unilateral Declaration of Independence, that was based Entirely on Lies, Unjustified Aggression from the Euro_American NATO, and Injustices by Euro-America on the Innocent Serbian People.

It was known long in advance by Euro-America and to this day that there was no genocide of the Kosovo Albanians by Serbia, but there was and continues to be a genocide of Kosovo Serbs by the Kosovo Albanians.

We know that Hitler redrew the borders of Europe, and this is why Non Nazi Alliance of England, America, and the Soviet Union had to redraw the borders of Europe after the Nazi Activity of Hitler.

The People of those days did not Vote for Territory to be changed because of Anti Democratic and Anti Constitutional Activities like they do today.

The Disputed Territory of Gibraltar had a Sovereignty Referendum in 1967, and in 2002, and then there was the 2013 Sovereignty Referendum Falkland Islands.

However, unlike Crimea's Legal Declaration of Independence, Kosovo Illegitimately declared independence and Violated the United Nations Charter and the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1244, which Legally Guarantees Serbia its Territorial Integrity over Serbia's Province of Kosovo, and no Referendum was organized in Kosovo, but Crimea had a Referendum, and followed the Legal Procedure for Self Determination as Guaranteed by the United Nations Charter.

We notice that there has been Irrefutable Evidence of Much Anti Democratic Activity by Euro-America in Ukraine, and we know that Hitler was not a fan of Democracy, and that Hitler Interfered in other Countries.

The People of Crimea Voted Overwhelmingly at 97 % not to be under the Dictatorship of the Anti Democratic and Anti Constitutional Illegitimate Coup Leaders in Kiev, who are Puppets to Foreigners.

It is possible that the Illegitimate Foreign Sponsored Coup Leaders may do something Legitimate like change Ukraine's Constitution to a Federal System, where the Oblasts have the proper level of autonomy from the Federal Government, but the Coup Leaders are Illegitimate, because they came to power Illegitimately, Illegally, and Unconstitutionally.

There has been another type of redrawing of borders in Europe by Euro-America in Europe, and they are the borders of Justice in Europe, where they Deliberately Pervert the Course of Justice, and use Taxpayers' Money for that, and I mention the Sham Court Euphemistically called the International Criminal Court for the former Yugoslavia.

The News Article written by an Honest English Journalist is Titled: Milosevic: true or false at .

The Documentary Titled: It Began With a Lie at , and the Video: that shows the workings of the Corrupt NATO Show Courts is Titled: Slobodan Milosevic INNOCENT at .

Will Euro-America be consistent and withdraw their recognition and support for Kosovo's Illegal and Illegitimate Unilateral Declaration of Independence at , and , and Consistency for what is Good, Proper, and Just is not popular with Euro-America.

Let's not forget the mysteriously accurate snipers who targeted the leaders of the demonstrators in Bangkok, Thailand a few years ago. And the heavily redacted FBI document which refers to a "plan" to target Occupy Wall Street protester leaders with snipers...
