I wanted to take part after the Georgian thingie (LD screaming Agression on all pistons was the purest form of entertainment) and the Libyan thing. Nota bene, the first professional "amateurs" started to pop up during the Libyan crisis, people that would relay news while being nowhere near the news. I suspect kalerab of being a paid troll.
A real one. I got banned...
I don't think he is a paid troll, but someone who is extremely biased working hard to appear as neutral and authoritative as possible. I still remember how he vehemently defended the Libyan "scenario" by making it sound as if post-"revolution" Libyans were now living in the land of milk and honey even though most people could see his BS for what it was.
Also, his gloating and "predictions" about Ukies steamrolling the DNR/LNR after the latter retreat from Slavyansk quickly gave way to very perceptible butthurt when the truth of the matter became too obvious to ignore.
Don't get me wrong, I actually think that there are plenty of NATO stronk trolls on mp.net just waiting to goad anyone with a different point of view into an argument and then report that individual for no reason at all. Unfortunately, some mods also appear to be happy to let that happen. I was amazed more than a few times when certain intelligent and contributing members of mp.net were banned and I was unable to find any reason at all from their posting history.
What gives me that idea was the fact that during the Libyan war, he had pointers that would be ID'ed directly on "Party Line" from the French and UK. Tip-top same lines, same claims.
The way he criticized Libya during Ghadaffi was utterly moronic since he would square the country, like a "Westerner would". Furthermore, the pointers would all push towards a "revolution" while we knew (and it was proved later) that the French and Qatar had been in contact with the Libyan NCT with people on the ground since at least february. And FAC since at least May (if not sooner). It was parroting. I said then that Libya was about to descend in Hell. I knew it, people were telling me about it. In september I was in Malta to arrange a couple of Visas for Libyans that wanted to flee. What they described was this, Libya was done as a country. Even if by some miracle, the Ghadaffi regime won, the country was in chaos.
So when people talk about Syria in the way kalerab talks, I can't think at anything else but press briefing from X or Y MFA.
But you're right in a sense. He doesn't need to get paid.
OTT yeah Ukraine would close the border scenario. I remember full well when in 11 july the DNR issued the Zelenopillya/Zelenopolje pictures, much butthurt was felt accross the board.
