Just read this nice piece of BS:
http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2014/04/20/world/europe/ukraine-provides-evidence-of-russian-military-in-civil-unrest.html

So lets use deliberately blurred low res photos of some guys in Ukraine and some Russian soldiers that vaguely look similar and claim this is definitive proof. So lets see if given 5 minutes and the internet I can demonstrate how full of shit the US State Department really is.

Lets take the bearded guy. The guy in 2008 Georgia was the Chechen second in command of the Vostok Battalion. The guy in Ukraine is a local Cossack:

Same guy CLEARLY? At least if youre blind or if youre looking at deliberately blurred photos from the US State Department.

Ok, lets move on to the helmets. Let see...

Pretty clear the helmets are not the same. The Russian helmets air holes diverge going back, the helmets in Ukraine converge. But I guess thats hard to see if again you are looking at reduced resolution photos.

Wow, so that debunking exercise took 5 minutes and the power of the internet. Someone at the US-SD should look into that.

Ukraine says these photographs show that the men who have taken over government buildings in eastern Ukraine are Russian combatants.

Turns out government sponsorship of fitness programs is literally Stalin! 
Whats next, funding for highways is literally Hitler? Hey, do you know which government was the first to ban smoking?

Bias doesn't get much more blatant than this.
Any connection between present Crimea tensions and Putin's desire to have a fighting-fit population are of course coincidental

I find it puzzling that US and Western establishment holds up Pussy Riot as heroes and is outraged by their "disproportionate" jail sentence. This is a group responsible for sex orgies in a public museum mind you (nsfw link below). I wonder what kind of sentence they would have gotten if they performed their "Punk Prayer" in say the main Synagogue in Jerusalem? Maybe more than 2 years?

On the other hand, there seems to be nothing amiss when someone like Aaron Swartz is charged with a crime carrying a 35 year prison sentence for releasing some academic papers, and as a result commits suicide. 

There is something seriously wrong when Pussy Riot are held us as heroes and Aaron Swartz as a villain.

What makes it so obvious that this is what they should be charged with? I mean, you're not a lawyer or judge. And anyway, thats totally irrelevant to the overall point. I think the particular crime they were charged with is irrelevant, its really their actions and the reactions of the media. So the fact that they were charged with a more serious crime than they strictly they deserved makes them into heroes? The overall point is that Western media fawns over them as heroes (which they arent), while portraying someone like Aaron Swartz as a villain. Kind of warped priorities.

Google Places API for Android is a mess of horrendous documentation and buggy/borderline unusable implementation (filtering on location and place type simply doesn't work). WTF?

Once again, the media and the foreign policy establishment are dangerously misreading history and current events

Interesting album that shows many of the pictures posted to #SochiProblems  actually had nothing to do with Sochi. In the age of reverse image search it's hard to get away with such bs for long, but the damage is done.
