Just With Real Weapons
By Josh MarshallPublishedJuly 18, 2014, 9:58 AM EDT
Following up on my piece from last night about Putin's epic goof, here's an amazing little nugget from David Remnick's post about the Malaysian Air shoot down.
The reference is to the puffed up separatist 'warlord' who appears to lead the group that shot down the Malaysian jet and apparently first took responsibility publicly at first, thinking it was a Ukrainian military cargo jet.
“Strelkov is well known for leading historical reënactments of Russian military battles, like you have in the States with the Civil War reënactors,” Pavlovsky said. “It used to be a fantasy world for people like him, but now they have a realm for their imaginations.”
So that's who you're dealing with: some mix of civil war reenactor or Tea Partier decked out in revolutionary garb, with a mix of reckless aggression and comical incompetence. Here we have them break into nursing homes to photographs senator's comatose wives; there Putin gives them heavy armaments designed for full scale land war in Europe.

Something is missing in this fool's logic....an actual connection between the reenacting and leading an armed rebellion. That might be why I've never seen TEA Partiers or reenactors wandering around in squads with loaded AKs or Stingers, or driving a truck loaded with SAMs and launchers.SVPete

Man, they want the tea party group to be violent so badly they are starting to fantasize about it. They really should get checked by shrinks. It's turning into a mental illness.

Mr. Marshall conveniently forgets that the overwhelming majority of political assassinations, bombings and mayhem in the U.S.A. are have been carried out by leftists. This is nothing more than the usual projection/preaching to the choir.What do you call an arrogant bully that can never admit it when he's wrong? Mr. President.
