    There is literally no interaction that the US in any nation that Monte doesn't disagree with. Just think about that. That's hardcore.

    The USA does it with banking and corporate hegemons. Is there a difference. Ask the Ukrainians if they want their standard of living lowered and gas costs increased and retirements slashed to satisfy the IMF.

    Absolutely. Of course, he will perceive that as him doing something right.

    That's actually one of the more sensible posts he makes. You should look up his posts.

    Rather than ridicule the poster on a personal basis, I would be more inclined to examine the case he is making, and investigate the veracity or otherwise of his claims. If he is talking arrant nonsense, with no factual basis whatsoever, it should be child's play to demonstrate that. If however, there is some evidence of clandestine US and UK influence in the Ukrainian coup, perhaps it might be unfair to accuse the poster concerned of promoting insane myths. Very few issues are totally black or white - shades of grey tend to predominate, especially where national interests are concerned.

    Between legal corporates and illegal olygarchs? Plenty!

    For one corporates are more interested in trading and buying goods with dollars. Olygarchs may resort to their mafia ties in getting stuff for free and by force.

    Is that why the USA has installed Oligarchs around Ukraine to maintain order, discipline, etc.
