Ukraine Magic

The news cycle moves pretty quickly these days, so perhaps everyone has forgotten about the civil war in the Ukraine. But amnesia aside, things haven't gone too well for Western backed Kiev forces, in their fight against pro-Russian separatist districts. 


In Debaltsevo alone, separatists captured 450 heavy weapons, 200 pieces of armor and 60 tanks during fighting in January and February. However, this streak of George Soros funded bad luck may be about to change.

Typical Ukrainian Shamans

Some 2000 wizards, witches, shamans and warlocks gathered in Kiev today to hold a magic ritual for peace in the troubled country and to cast spells on amulets and charms for nationalist fighters.

Sergey Grechishkin, a self-styled magician, who calls himself Sabirius and a "master of the primary circle," described the purpose of the ritual as an "appeal to higher forces."

Charging Up

“It will be a joint appeal to the higher forces. Each of us will do it in his own way. We will ask them to help people to recover from this bloody attack of anger and hatred and save those who found themselves in this wild bloodbath. The second ritual is a 'charging up' of protective amulets for the warriors and residents in the conflict zone, which will then protect people from bullets, frags, knives and batons.”

Protective amulets for the warriors? That worked well for the Sioux and the Mau Mau.

Perhaps you think I've made this up, as some kind of joke. Think again.

The Ukraine situation will stabilize in time. Putin doesn't necessarily want all of it because the portion of the country that is heavily pro-western will engage his people in a civil war.

Without support from the US and other western countries, the result of the conflict was a foregone conclusion. The question for the Russians is where they want to go next...magic or no magic arrayed against them.

I've seen dead people with amulets around their necks. I've yet to see one stop a 7.62 x 39 round -- or any other bullet for that matter.

For heathen heart that puts her trust
In reeking tube and iron shard,
All valiant dust that builds on dust,
And guarding, calls not Thee to guard,
For frantic boast and foolish word—
Thy mercy on Thy People, Lord!

---Kipling, Recessional

I don't think charms work against bullets. But we'll see, maybe Democrat magic will stop our cities becoming war zones.

I like Recessional very much.
