“…the digital and literal footprints of one Russian soldier…prove that Russian soldiers are fighting in Ukraine.”
Disclaimer: Not here to argue the political facts and consequences, we haven’t opened that can of worms yet. We’re barely touching technology on this blog as of late. But, here’s some meaningful context. Former 4-Star General, Welsey Clark was both head of United States European Command, AND Supreme Commander of NATO forces. When it comes to Ukraine, Crimea, and the general phuckery Russia has been “allegedly” inflicting in the area – he can be considered an expert voice. He recently warned that Russia is planning a Spring Offensive to further seize more sovereign territory from embattled and fractured Ukraine.
A couple of days ago we reported on the ISIS “moron” who tweeted his location, completely blowing his cover in a battle – and had a bit of fun with that, right along with the Air Force guys. Now this? SO, LET’S RECAP!
most likely goes for hegemonic land-grab in neighboring Ukraine. CHECK. World leader flat-out denies such doings (under the cover of sloppy guerilla tactics). SURE. World community goes ahead and freezes his economic power into tailspin recession anyway, just in case – ya know – HE’S CLEARLY LYING. CHECK. The international waltz of crisis ensues, and continues to the day of this posting. That is until the good folks over at Vice News popped into one of Russia’s most popular Social Networks and noticed a young G.I. Jakov left his geo-tags on. Sooo all they had to do was follow those digital breadcrumbs to young tweeter’s posting history, and what do you know? Massive troop incursions right on the border, waiting for orders from Moscow!
WATCH THE TRAILER:
Russian President Vladimir has unequivocally denied these allegations. Nonetheless, the international community led by the United States has imposed tough sanctions on the Russian economy, including Russian oligarchy’s funds worldwide – some of Putin’s strongest and most wealthy billionaire supporters (guys who made a killing in the Sochi Olympics). The general idea is, you can’t eat ya lunch – until you release the headlock you have on that Ukranian kid in your part of the playground.
While you may deny such wrong-doing, your homeboy is live-tweeting the scuffle for us, VLAD! That’s 2015. “The Shot heard around the World” was for the American Revolution. Not too far from there in Sarajevo, an Archbishop’s assassination tindered World War 1. Will the next major conflict be sparked by the inevitability of somebody pressing “post” on their mobile phone at the wrong time and place?
