Did you know that “the American government approved plans last year to provide lethal defensive weapons to Ukraine, a move … President Barack Obama had resisted.”
Well, now you know.
As I pointed out in “Presstitute-Cultivated Ignorance On Ukraine” (2014),
The “the struggle for Ukraine” is a chapter in a series of US orchestrated provocations, which began with the expansion of NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) eastward to abut Russia’s borders—an expansion pursued by Clinton, Bush and Obama alike. It gathered momentum with the US-backed attempts to incorporate Georgia and the Ukraine into the North Atlantic alliance.
The next stage in goading the Russian Bear consisted in American-funded NGO political-action groups—many of them backed by George Soros—flooding Russia proper. (“Purple” in Iraq, Blue in Kuwait, Cotton in Uzbekistan, Grape in Moldova, “Orange” in the Ukraine, “Rose” in Georgia, “Tulip” in Kyrgizstan, “Cedar” in Lebanon, Jasmine in Tunisia, Green in Iran, still un-christened in Russia and Syria: Dig around and you’ll find American activists à la Alinsky behind these “color-coded,” plant-based revolutions, blessed and backed by Foggy Bottom.)
“A US-NATO military outpost in Georgia and missile-defense installations near Russia” completed the provocation. “Whether this longstanding Washington-Brussels policy is wise or reckless, it is … deceitful,” inveighed scholar of Russian history Stephen Cohen.
Back in February of 2014, I also predicted “a second Cold War between the US and Russia …”
The ignoramuses of the Beltway are still flouting America’s national interests and squandering Russian goodwill…
