Twitter quickly removed two tweets of mine last week calling attention to some useful sources of truthful analysis of the potentially nuclear confrontation between U.S./NATO proxy Ukraine and the Russian Federation. Probably someone reported my tweets, but we’ll never know because social media censorship is mostly opaque.
Of course I kept trying. Here’s the tweet:
Reposting some of the more sane, though alarming, observations on the war in Ukraine this week:
From Peter Vanhoutte: A friend of mine published a few days a go a map of Eastern Europe with all NATO-bases on it on facebook. This was immediately removed by a so-called fact checker. This is a frightening development. We are not allowed to know anymore the military builld-up on the Western side, only the Russian military is public. As a former journalist, I wonder why we are not allowed to see the two sides of the current problem and critically analyze them. Even for a mediated solution, a balanced approach to and understanding of both sides is necessary. And in the end, the creation of a neutral zone between east and west will certainly help to lower the tensions.
From John Pilger: Western Democracies Have Mutated into Propagandists for War and Conflict
Vladimir Putin refers to the “genocide” in the eastern Donbas region of Ukraine. Following the coup in Ukraine in 2014—orchestrated by Barack Obama’s “point person” in Kyiv, Victoria Nuland—the coup regime, infested with neo-Nazis, launched a campaign of terror against Russian-speaking Donbas, which accounts for a third of Ukraine’s population.
Overseen by CIA director John Brennan in Kyiv, “special security units” coordinated savage attacks on the people of Donbas, who opposed the coup. Video and eyewitness reports show bussed fascist thugs burning the trade union headquarters in the city of Odessa, killing 41 people trapped inside. The police are standing by. Obama congratulated the “duly elected” coup regime for its “remarkable restraint.”
From Bruce Gagnon:
Who funded the RAND Corp study on regime change in Russia?
The infamous RAND Corporation has created a study calling for the break-up of Russia. The plan is now being implemented by the US-UK-NATO. See the study here.
The pie chart above (click on it for a better view) details where RAND gets its funding. Should be no surprise to see that the vast majority of the money comes from the Department of Defense, US Army, Air Force, Homeland Security and other government agencies.
It is my opinion, based on these and other obvious facts, that the current international effort to militarily encircle Russia and take them down – is being envisioned and organized by the US war machine.
In addition is the unrelenting corporate media brainwashing of the American and European people to support this regime change effort now underway.
Since 2007 Russia has been pleading with US-UK-NATO to agree to a negotiated security program for all of Europe that would end NATO expansion and would return to serious negotiations to ban weapons in space, cyber war, and return to nuclear weapons reduction talks. The US has refused all of these offers for stability.
Moscow understands what the western corporate-run governments intend – regime change and the breaking up of Russia into smaller nations that would then give resource extraction companies access to the vast resources along the Arctic Sea zone.
The US use of Ukraine as a tool to destabilize Russia is spelled out in the Rand study where they say:
Providing lethal aid to Ukraine would exploit Russia’s greatest point of external vulnerability….Undermining Russia’s image abroad would focus on diminishing Russian standing and influence, thus undercutting regime claims of restoring Russia to its former glory. Further sanctions, the removal of Russia from non-UN international forums, and boycotting such events as the World Cup could be implemented by Western states and would damage Russian prestige.
So the evidence is abundant if one is serious about cutting through the media demonization and the western military encirclement of Russia. But the willingness to seek the truth and to stand against the wave of American ‘exceptionalist’ propaganda is more than most are prepared to face.
Sadly far to many in the US (even in the progressive movement) know little to nothing about the full story. And even more sadly, many don’t appear to be that interested in finding the truth.
Let’s hope that changes before it is too late.
If you’ve made it this far, consider this:
Maybe four years of the Russiagate nonsense was intended to set up U.S. public support for the coup regime aligned with neo-Nazis in Ukraine?
Maybe the public health crisis we’re in now is intended to set up public support for a future war on China, once their ally Russia has been regime-changed?
