War With Russia Chapter Two: The Empire Strikes Back

 

War With Russia Chapter Two: The Empire Strikes Back… 

After the destruction of the Global Thermonuclear Death Star candidate (Hilary the Bitch) campaign for president the surprise victory over evil by the Jedi Knight Donnie the Trump and his rebel forces set the stage for reduced tensions between nuclear powers of Russia and the United States, hope once again filled the air. But the sinister elements of the Dark Side led by the mysterious Sith Lord Darth Soros continues to manipulate his brainwashed mindless hords of neoliberals behind the scenes. Will Trump be able to resist the warmongers? Or will he succumb to the Dark Side of the political Force?….. 

 

Meanwhile, back on Earth, conservatives have had a very hard time getting over President Trump’s much-repeated response to Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly’s calling Russian president Vladimir Putin “a killer”. Replied Trump: “There are a lot of killers. We have a lot of killers. You think our country is so innocent?”

 

One could almost feel a bit sorry for O’Reilly as he struggled to regain his composure in the face of such blasphemy. Had any American establishment media star ever heard such a thought coming from the mouth of an American president? From someone on the radical left, yes, but from the president?

 

Senator John McCain on the floor of Congress, referring to Putin, tore into attempts to draw “moral equivalency between that butcher and thug and KGB colonel and the United States of America.” (1)

 

Ah yes, the infamous KGB. Can anything good be said about a person associated with such an organization? We wouldn’t like it if a US president had a background with anything like that. Oh, wait, a president of the United States was not merely a CIA “colonel”, but was the Director of the CIA! I of course speak of George Herbert Walker Bush. And as far as butchery and thuggery … How many Americans remember the December 1989 bombing and invasion of the people of Panama carried out by the same Mr. Bush? Many thousands killed or wounded; thousands more left homeless.

 

Try and match that, Vladimir!

 

And in case you’re wondering for what good reason all this was perpetrated? Officially, to arrest dictator Manuel Noriega on drug charges. How is that for a rationalization for widespread devastation and slaughter? It should surprise no one that only shortly before the invasion Noriega had been on the CIA payroll. (2)

 

It’s the “moral equivalency” that’s so tough to swallow for proud Americans like O’Reilly and McCain. Republican Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell also chipped in with: “And no, I don’t think there’s any equivalency between the way the Russians conduct themselves and the way the United States does.” (3)  Other Senators echoed the same theme, all inspired by good ol’ “American exceptionalism”, drilled into the mind of every decent American from childhood on … Who would dare to compare the morals of (ugh!) Russia with those of God’s chosen land, even in Moscow’s current non-communist form?

 

The communist form began of course with the October 1917 Russian Revolution. By the summer of 1918 some 13,000 American troops could be found in the newly-born state, the future Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Two years and thousands of casualties later, the American troops left, having failed in their mission to “strangle at its birth” the Bolshevik state, as Winston Churchill so charmingly put it. (4)

 

US foreign policy has not been much more noble-minded since then. I think, it’s time for me to present the concise historical summarys of Dr.  William Blum*:

 

Since the end of World War 2, the United States has:

 

Attempted to overthrow more than 50 foreign governments, most of which were democratically-elected. https://williamblum.org/essays/read/overthrowing-other-peoples-governments-the-master-list

Dropped bombs on the people of more than 30 countries. https://williamblum.org/chapters/rogue-state/united-states-bombings-of-other-countries

Attempted to assassinate more than 50 foreign leaders. https://williamblum.org/chapters/killing-hope/us-government-assassination-plots

Attempted to suppress a populist or nationalist movement in 20 countries. https://williamblum.org/essays/read/suppressing-revolt-and-revolution

Grossly interfered in democratic elections in at least 30 countries. (5)Though not as easy to quantify, has also led the world in torture; not only the torture performed directly by Americans upon foreigners, but providing torture equipment, torture manuals, lists of people to be tortured, and in-person guidance by American instructors. (6)

 

Where does the United States get the nerve to moralize about Russia? Same place they get the nerve to label Putin a “killer” … a “butcher” … a “thug”. It would be difficult to name a world-renowned killer, butcher, or thug – not to mention dictator, mass murderer, or torturer – of the past 75 years who was not a close ally of Washington.

 

So why then does the American power elite hate Putin so? It can be dated back to the period of Boris Yeltsin.

 

During the Western financial looting of the dying Soviet Union the US could be found meddling in favor of Yeltsin in the election held in 1996. Under Yeltsin’s reign, poverty exploded and life expectancy for men actually decreased by five years, all in the name of “shock therapy.” The US/Western-backed destabilization of the Soviet Union allowed global capitalism to spread its misery unfettered by any inconvenient socialism. Russia came under the control of oligarchs concerned only for their own enrichment and that of their billionaire partners in the West. The transition of power to Vladimir Putin in the 21st century led to a number of reforms that curbed the disastrous looting of the nation by the oligarchic bandits. Putin and his allies vowed to build an independent, capitalist Russia that was capable of determining its own affairs free from US and Western domination. Such an orientation placed Putin in direct confrontation with US imperialism’s plans for unipolar global hegemony.

 

Washington’s disdain for Putin increased when he derided US war propaganda leading up to the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Then, the Russian leader played a crucial role in getting Iran to curtail its nuclear program and arranging for Syria to surrender its stockpiles of chemical weapons. Washington’s powerful neoconservatives had been lusting for direct US military strikes against those two countries, leading to regime change, not diplomatic agreements that left the governments in place.

 

Lastly, after the United States overthrew the democratically elected Ukrainian government 2014 and installed fascists via an illegal coup. Putin was obliged to intervene on behalf of threatened ethnic Russians in Crimea and eastern Ukraine. That, in turn, was transformed by the Western media into a “Russian invasion”. (7)

 

The same Western media has routinely charged Putin with murdering journalists but doesn’t remind its audience of the American record in this regard. The American military, in the course of its wars in recent decades, has been responsible for the deliberate deaths of many journalists. In Iraq, for example, there’s the Wikileaks 2007 video, exposed by Chelsea Manning, of the cold-blooded murder of two Reuters journalists; the 2003 US air-to-surface missile attack on the offices of Al Jazeera in Baghdad that left three journalists dead and four wounded; and the American firing on Baghdad’s Hotel Palestine, a known journalist residence, the same year that killed two foreign news cameramen.

 

The Trump honeymoon is over for me. It was never actually love; hardly more than an intriguing curiosity; mainly that he wasn’t Hillary Clinton; that he was unlikely to start a war with Russia or close down the Russia Today (RT) TV station in the US, which I and many others depend on daily; and that he was not politically correct when it came to fighting the Islamic State. Trump’s “moral equivalency” remark above gave me some hope. But this all vanished with his appointment to high office of one war-loving, bemedalled general after another, intermingled with one billionaire Goldman-Sachs official after another; his apparent confirmation of his Mexican Wall; and, worst of all, his increasing the military budget by $54 billion… this will certainly be at the expense of human life and health and the environment. What manner of man is this who walks amongst us?

 

 

The word is “narcissism”. New York Times columnist Frank Bruni (February 28, 2017) captures this well: “Why do I get the sense that fighter jets are Donald Trump’s biceps, warships are his pectorals and what he’s doing with his proposed $54 billion increase for the Pentagon is flexing?”

 

Will there ever be an end to the never-ending American wars?

 

How should we react to terrorism?

 

I have said, and do believe that terrorism carried out by Islamics is to some extent motivated by their... religion. A hypothesis rejected by what I see as the “politically correct” who usually take it to be an unjust attack upon an "ancient" and "noble" "religion". Gag! The fact that I, a leftist, a comrade, would say such a thing is especially hard for them to take. Too damn bad I say. I call it as I see it.

 

Some say that neither I nor the media have the right to categorically condemn brutal terrorist actions because the terrorists are reacting to decades of Western, particularly American, violence against the Muslims of the Middle East and elsewhere; and that if only the West would stop their bombing they would stop creating new terrorists. Liberal columnists often echo these sentiments, but at the same time cannot accept the role played by radical Islamic beliefs in instigating the Islamic terror.

 

Not every American soldier in World War II was a knowledgable and convinced anti-fascist; nor were all of those fighting in Vietnam knowledgable and convinced anti-communists; but they deeply believed in American exceptionalism. I proceed from the assumption that Islamic terrorists deeply believe in the leading tenets of Islam though many of them may have been drawn to ISIL for a variety of reasons and may have only a passing knowledge of the Koran and may only rarely enter a mosque.

 

Why is it that terrorists routinely shout “Allah Akhbar” (“God is great”) while carrying out a bloody attack?

 

Why is it that so much of Islam teaches that non-Muslims are the enemy, that “disbelievers” are to be executed?

 

Why do they speak of their duty to perform “jihad”, which is usually defined as a struggle against the enemies of Islam or against the “infidels”?

 

Why do they speak of “martyrs”, which is often used as an honorific for Muslims who have died fulfilling a religious commandment, especially those who die waging jihad, or historically in the military expansion of Islam?

 

Why do they speak of martyrs going to paradise after dying and receiving heavenly rewards? Even being resurrected on earth, to once again die as a martyr, going again to paradise.

 

Yes, yes, I know about the terrible crimes of the IRA Catholics and the Israeli Jews, but on the scale of human moral evolution they don’t compare to the routine cutting off of heads; the whippings; demolishing 2000 + -year-old monuments; sternly banning alcohol, music, gays and sex; covering up women’s faces; forcibly imposing religious law; and on and on, including the worst of all: the never-ending horrific suicide bombings. ISIL has done the impossible: It has made American foreign policy look almost halfway decent.

 

I reply to critics with something to this effect: Even if I completely accepted your premises, I’d still feel that it was too late. We can’t undo the harm that US foreign policy and the West have caused. The barn door is wide open and all the horses have escaped. There is an entire generation, or two generations, in the Muslim world totally committed to gaining bloody revenge against the West. It appears to be that it’s either us or them.

 

Explaining the cause of terrorism is not the same as excusing it.

 

It might be different if the terrorists focused on killing only those in the West responsible for the horror carried out against their people, but their acts of violence are largely indiscriminate; they attack Westerners at random, often with Muslim victims included; often with only Muslim victims.

 

As I’ve pointed out, we should consider this: From the 1950s to the 1980s the United States carried out all kinds of very harmful policies against Latin America, including numerous bombings, without the natives ever resorting to the uncivilized, barbaric kind of retaliation as employed by ISIL. Latin American leftists generally took their revenge out upon concrete representatives of the American empire: diplomatic, military and corporate targets – not markets, theatres, nightclubs, hospitals, schools, restaurants or churches.

 

France, the site of numerous terrorist attacks, has experimented with deradicalization centers in an attempt to combat homegrown extremism. The centers subjected those they housed to intense courses in French history and philosophy. But after five months the experiment has been abandoned as a complete failure. (8). My guess is that one reason for the failure is that French officials, like their American counterparts, were too politically correct when it came to questions of religion. If I were a teacher at one of these centers I would ask the students how they know – I mean really know – that “martyrs” go to paradise. They are, after all, considering sacrificing their lives for this belief. Seriously confronting this question for perhaps the first time ever, the students’ minds may well become somewhat confused, leaving them open for other challenging questions and thoughts.

 

For the record: I don’t support the US fighting ISIL in Syria (which without the specific invitation of the sovereign Syrian government is a direct violation of international law) or elsewhere. I don’t trust the Pentagon’s motivation, or their choice of bombing targets. They’re probably still into regime change. I’d leave the job to Russia and its allies.

 

The Pentagon still dreams of winning a nuclear war with Russia:
"Dreams of ‘Winning’ Nuclear War on Russia" – Consortiumnews - https://consortiumnews.com/2017/03/10/dreams-of-winning-nuclear-war-on-russia
And China!
"John Pilger On Nuclear War And Targeting China" - http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/46645.htm
I don't trust them anywhere, the middle east included.


And remember the primary antagonists pushing us into a pre-war mindset regarding Russia are the Russophobic idiots behind the "Russian Hacking" conspiracy theories, which originated publicly with Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party as their excuse for all failures private and public.

 

The truth is that the Russophobia and "Russian Hacking" garbage originated with the Deep State in the zero credability CIA (Google Operation Mockingbird, Operation Condor, and Project Phoenix). I addressed and debunked this nonsense in my article "The Russia did NOT Hack the Election Resource" article. In short the article covers the fact that the group of retired Intel experts called Veterans Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) described in detail from their personal experience exactly how the intelligence community functions and that because of this if any actual hacking of the DNC had actually occurred the NSA would definitely know exactly what happened and be able to provide proof of all this to the American public without in anyway endangering national security. Because none of this happened, clearly no hack happened. Period. What most likely happened was a disgruntled DNC staffer used a thumb drive and provided the leaked information to Wikileaks (as Julian Assange has said). Thus what occurred was a leak not a hack. The then President (Obama) described the information as a leak and not a hack in his last press conference as VIPS had requested he do. Case closed. All the disclosed technical data in various reports has been inconclusive and throughly debunked by the numerous resources I provided links to in the comments of the article. And now new information has came to light that proves the CIA has the ability to fake supposed "evidence" rendering null and void even the circumstancal evidence they disclosed: "WikiLeaks Publishes Thousands of Documents on Alleged CIA Hacking Techniques" - Truthdig - http://m.truthdig.com/eartotheground/item/wikileaks_publishes_thousands_of_alleged_documents_cia_hacking_20170307

Ultimately the leaked information only proved how corrupt Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party really are. How they rigged the primarys for Hillary and her other many faults (besides wanting to start a nuclear war with Russia). So no top secret information was disclosed, and no election tampering occurred as a result of the leaks, just an informed electorate was the result, and that is unquestionably a good thing. But regardless always remember the leaks were not election tampering, the actual election tampering of the DNC rigging the primarys for Hillary was. Certainly no big loss for America in that one!

Obama ran on the promise of hope and change, he delivered only hope for the establishment and the change of even more war and murder abroad.


The few weeks of Trump’s presidency suffice to make clear that there will be no change this time either. Normal relations with Russia are on the back burner, if not off the stove. The material needs of the military/security complex for an enemy in order to justify its budget and police state powers, and the ideological needs of the neoconservatives for US world hegemony, are deemed to be more important than trust between thermonuclear powers. As for the neoliberal/alt-progressive/fake left, they regard working to preserve life on earth as merely a pretext for being soft on Russians and those who commit treason by favoring friendly relations with Russia.


The American working class has discovered that it has among Trump’s government no larger a constituency than have the Russians. Having been told by corporations, which are spending billions of dollars buying back their own stock, that they are too poor to pay US wages, Trump has found that the path to economic security for the work force lies in corporate tax reduction. The fake left continues on with Identity politics, marches for open borders for Muslims and Hispanics and for transgendered toilet facilities, not for bread and peace, and wants Trump impeached because he is not yet at war with Russia.


Trump’s Russophobic appointments, such as McMaster, Mattis, and Fiona Hill are actually worse than Obama’s Victoria Nuland, Samantha Power and Susan Rice. Just as Hillary and Nuland brought regime change to Ukraine, Tillerson at the State Department has signaled regime change of the democratically elected government in Venezuela. Ecuador and Bolivia won’t be far behind.


Washington has never supported governments that put the interests of their peoples ahead of the interests of those who rule the US. From Africa to South America to Indonesia to Cuba to Vietnam to Iran to Egypt, Washington has always misrepresented the forces for change as communist. Washington overthrew the first democratically elected government in Iran http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/cia-assisted-coup-overthrows-government-of-iran , the first in the Congo https://www.theguardian.com/global-development/poverty-matters/2011/jan/17/patrice-lumumba-50th-anniversary-assassination , the first in Egypt http://www.timesofisrael.com/announced-as-president-of-egypt/ , and a large numbers of others. Read Stephen Kinzer’s The Brothers. Read General Smedley Butler who said that he and the US Marines made South America safe for the United Fruit Company and investments of the New York Banks. Read John Perkins, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.


Washington opposes democratic change with an iron fist. Now Marine Le Pen, the favored candidate for the presidency of France in the upcoming election, is in the process of being destroyed by Washington.


Marine is not on Washington’s approved list. The reasons are: #1 she speaks to French interests, not to Washington’s or the EU’s, #2 she opposes the Trans-Atlantic Partnership, which gives US global corporations immunity to French laws against GMOs, and French labor, safety, and environmental standards, #3 she supports French opinion that the French are French and not “European” and wants out of the European Union, and #4 she wants France out of NATO, which uses France as a tool for American aggression.


Washington first attacked Marine via its surrogates in the French press and government, who managed to nullify her parliamentary immunity. With this achieved, she is now accused of “misuse of EU funds.”


The charge, of course, is a hoax, a frame-up. The charge, if it proves effective, will rely on the French presstitute media’s portrayal of Marine as a “fascist” for representing French nationalism. Today, if a European person is loyal to his or her own country and not to the EU, the person is considered to be a “nationalist,” a term that has been merged with “fascist.” The consequence is that anyone in France who wants to represent the French is a “fascist.”


Marine Le Pen lost her parliamentary immunity because she posted photos of ISIL victims on Twitter. The photos she posted were accurate and correct, simply the truth. But the charge is that to tell the truth about ISIL means that you are anti-Muslim, which today is like being anti-Jew, anti-black, anti-homosexual and anti-transgendered. The protection of Identity Politics now extends not only to the Muslim refugees from America’s wars who are overrunning the Western world but also to ISIL. The accurate and truthful photos violated Identity Politics.


The consensus of those few in Europe who reside outside the Matrix created for them by Washington and the American presstitutes is that the CIA will not permit Le Pen to become President of France. She is a threat to Washington’s Empire. If she cannot be destroyed with scandal and false charges, like Dominique Strauss-Kahn, she will be assassinated.


Democracy cannot function without an honest media. Nowhere in the Western world does an honest media exist. There are a relatively few sites on the Internet media, that are independent of ruling elites and speak the truth to the extent that the people can find it. But the very shadowy PropOrNot website, likely a product of the CIA or George Soros, has declared those who understand that good relations between thermonuclear powers are essential to be “Russian agents.”


One dozen Russian Satan 2 ICBMs are sufficient to destroy the United States. One is sufficient to destroy France, the UK, or Texas. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/10/25/russia-unveils-satan-2-missile-powerful-enough-to-wipe-out-uk-fr/ Why is Washington and Washington’s European, Canadian, and Australian puppets inviting such an outcome with continuous false accusations against Russia (and China). No person with any intelligence can possibly regard the thrice elected president of Russia as “the new Hitler,” “a Mafia Don,” “ a thug.”


By orchestrating Russophobia in the West, Washington has put all of humanity at risk. The Russians have watched Washington’s false accusations against Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Libya, Yeman, Pakistan, Iran and against Russia herself—such as the fake “invasion of Ukraine” nonsense (9). False accusations have in the 21st century always been Washington’s set-up of the target country for invasion or bombing.


These provacations issued daily by the idiot Western press, the idiot Western governments, and the idiot commentators have prepared the groundwork for a misunderstanding that can result in thermonuclear war and the end of life on earth.


When you read the New York Times, the Washington Post, or listen to CNN, NPR, or MSNBC or the British, Canadian, German, French, and Australian media, you are being indoctrinated with war with Russia (and China) and, thus, you are being prepared for your funeral.


Accustomed to looking for hope from within their own country, Americans become depressed when faced with these facts. Whereas the American Oligarchy is too strong for change, the situation in Europe is more hopeful. The EU is a collection of countries that have little in common. The British have concluded that submerging their identity into something called “Europe” is not in their interest. Other countries—Hungary, the Czech Republic, Greece and Portugal—are realizing that capitalists are more rapacious than commissars and might seek salvation in reclaiming their sovereignty. The exit from the European Union, a CIA-sponsored organization, could gain momentum.


NATO also could come unglued as European populations realize that it is not Russia that is the threat. The threat is that Washington is forcing Europe into conflict with Russia, a conflict in which Europe has nothing to gain. For Europe, conflict with Russia means the death of Europe. A few Europeans have gained sufficient awareness to begin asking: “Why die for Washington’s hegemony?”


This is Marine Le Pen’s question, and it is now being asked by a few in Germany. As Europeans gain awareness of Washington’s insanity, the question will grow. The millions of Muslim refugees from Washington’s wars who are flooding Europe with problems are bringing home to insouciant Europeans the price of accepting Washington’s overlordship.


The privatizations, which have wrecked the prospects for Latvia, Ukraine, and Greece, and that have raised costs and lowered living standards in Britain and France while concentrating income and wealth at the top of the income distribution, are a European lesson that the partial socializations of social democracy are more livable than the system of plunder that now rules.


Washington’s mask of benevolence is falling away, revealing the face of greed and evil that is its true face. This face is far more terrifying than the orchestrated “Russian threat.” If more Europeans can gain awareness, the threat of thermonuclear war will crumble with Washington’s Empire. Until then the Empire marches on and strikes back at all who dare oppose it.

Where does the United States get the nerve to moralize about Russia?
 
That’s an easy question.  It has nothing to do with nerve, it has everything to do with facts.  It's a fact that Russia recently invaded and annexed a peaceful sovereign nation.  America could easily do the same if we wanted to bully our neighbors, but we choose peace.   It is also true that Vladimir Putin is the former head of the KGB who has altered his nation’s Construction to remain in power for far longer than what was supposed to be.  Not to mention the very shady history of his rise to power.  America can hold it’s moral head high in that we don’t put our troops to war to advance the interests of a dictator.

Great piece!  My only reservation is the condemnation as Trump as a failure at this early stage.  The Democrats are doing everything possible to stop anything Trump wants to do, so it will take some time before we know the actual agenda as actual policy is put into place on these issues like Russia.
 
Yes, Trump is being attacked on all sides to go after Russia, but I hold out hope he will resist those forces.

Maureen, the "peaceful sovereign government" you support is a illegal Nazi coup government installed in 2014 by the United States. They include WWII Nazi war criminals and have committed acts of terrorism against Russia and racially motivated war crimes against Jews and ethnic Russians in Ukraine since the coup brought them to power.

Jeffry, Louis, Dino, and Stone-Eater, thanks for the constructive comments as usual.
 
Louis my only concern with Trump is his being led astray by the neocon/neoliberal warmongers. He's already suggested that Crimea be returned to Ukraine despite the Nazi attacks against the Crimean people, despite the fact that they voted to rejoin Russia, and despite the fact that Crimea was a part of Russia before being gifted to Ukraine by a communist dictator. Russia will never stand for something as outrageous, nor should they. This is very troubling. I made the mistake of giving Obama way too many chances, not planning on repeating that mistake again.

"Leroy, since when is the truth an "ad hominem"? Please explain. If you are opposed to the truth I suggest you follow Maureen's example and avoid my articles in the future."  Add to that "Liar".
 
What proof do you have of anything you said?  ZERO.  Her view is more mainstream.  That doesn't make her a NAZI, a troll, or a liar.  Your purpose is to invalidate her post simply because you disagree.  Nothing she said was untrue.  And, no, I am not a NAZI, a troll, or a liar.  You owe her an apology, IMHO.  But, you are too arrogant to do so, no doubt.
Jenifer Frost Added Mar 14, 2017 - 6:55pm
I do not owe an apology to someone who supports a Nazi regime that I accurately called a Nazi lover Leroy, get over yourself. You need to look up the definition of liar and ad hominem since you either don't know what those words mean or selectively apply them like a total hypocrite. BTW on the liar front, the Russian invasion lie was debunked TWICE now, if you can't click a link that's your problem. Also a fascist regime that commits war crimes and terrorist acts against sovereign nations is not "peaceful" and anyone saying so is correctly labeled as a liar. Deal with the facts. All has been proven, not "zero" that is slander on your part, two infractions, you are warned. 
Jenifer Frost Added Mar 14, 2017 - 6:57pm
On a personal note Leroy, I find it utterly disgusting to see you defending an antisemite like Maureen who supports Nazi war criminal terrorists. Absolutely disgusting and outright outrageous. Says a lot about you. 
Leroy Added Mar 14, 2017 - 7:16pm
I see nothing antisemitic in her comments.  Perhaps there are some elsewhere.  Perhaps our paths have not crossed.  In any case, it doesn't invalidate her comments.  You don't condemn others here whose comments border on antisemitic.  You seem to be delusional, no offense intended. 
 
You have a gift for writing.  No one can take that from you.  But, you are obsessed with Russia and climate change and simply cannot be objective on these subjects.
 
I apologize to Maureen if I appear to be defending you.  I am sure you are quite capable of that.  I just don't like to see bullying.

Jennifer,
 
I think Trump is doing what he always does, leaves a lot of things floating in the air before the official deal making starts.  I could be wrong, I accept that possibility, but I hold out hope that the little details I have heard so far is all part of the long game, but to know for sure we have to wait and see how it shakes out.
 
If we avoid any actual bad confrontations with Russia I will see it as a victory by Trump because as you point out, politicians on all sides seem to be demanding a war with Russia.
 
 
Jenifer Frost Added Mar 14, 2017 - 7:28pm
Leroy, how is supporting a Nazi regime not antisemitic? I linked 3 articles that supply the proof of the Nazi control of the Ukraine government and military, including from the Huffington Post! As well as photographic and video evidence! What more do you want!? Ukrainian Nazis are violent racists, how does any decent person support that, support Nazis? And I proved from the twice provided link that Kiev themselves finally admitted there was no Russian invasion, not to mention that Maureen provided zero evidence to support her outrageous claims. It's on the person who makes a claim to prove it not on others to blindly accept conspiracy theories and outright propaganda with zero evidence or prove them false. None the less I proved it to be a lie. I stand behind solid facts, you and Maureen insist we believe fact-free fantasy, it is not me who is incapable of being objective, CLEARLY.

Jenifer Frost Added Mar 14, 2017 - 9:35pm
I'm truly amazed at the level of stupidity in people who still believe conspiracy theories with ZERO evidence to back them. People who support Nazi regimes blindly and are offended when called on it. People who lie about Russian invasions and Ukrainian Nazi terrorist war criminals being peaceful. And other people who excuse such perverted madness. I'm starting to think that Ryan was correct about a Writer’s Beat Constitution, at least in regard to lying. Lying must not be tolerated, and certainly not celebrated. Lying has brought the world to the dismal state it's in today. Liars are given power to intimidate people on their own articles in their own countries and homes. Lies have made the wicked powerful because good people do nothing or worse yet, support liars and lies. Intimidation has become global. European countries are intimidated, bribed, and reduced to vassal status. Aggression is displayed toward Russia, China, and Iran. America has become a great collection of evil. The good in the country is voiceless and without power. Evil rules us.
 
I will not bend to liars or be intimidated by lies and fools who insist we take them on their no credability word with no proof of any kind and who ignore factual data. I will not believe bullshit over my own eyes, ears, and mind. Nor will I be intimated by such garbage.

The kinds of people I referred to generally squash all debate and counter views and information. Here they delete posts they disagree with. The most recent who's name began with an "A", also a fan of Ukrainian Nazis (& also undercover about it) deleted all my posts once I provided proof of the American backed illegal coup and fascist control of Ukraine. She thankfully never posted another article on Writer’s Beat after that. I'm sure our current fascist fan is similar based on her thinking I am one to delete posts as she suggested, and thus would most likely do herself. I do not delete posts unless they both violate the rules to three infractions or more and are disruptive, as in trolling the same discredited garbage over and over again. Or threats of course, I delete them immediately. But otherwise that's not my way, censorship. I rather disprove someone than silence them by force.

Thanks for the kind words Donna. Actually I was just offered to be a paid writer for Medium.com, not sure if I'll accept because this is a leisure hobby of mine and I already have a full-time job. If this becomes a job I'll have another boss and more deadlines so probably not, but it was certainly nice to have been asked and referred to as a "high value writer" by them. 
 
As to your questions, America is in everyone's business because they view themselves to be the global Empire, much as the Romans did, and the Third Reich wanted to be, or the fictional Galactic Empire from Star Wars that  I somewhat sarcastically compared America to in the first paragraph and with the pictures. Global hegemonic control and nothing less is acceptable to the American Deep State, and that truly is the real reason Russia is considered to be a threat, they will not submit their sovereignty to become an American vassal state. I grew up with Russian friends and know several today including a retired US Marine Co. who retired to Russia because of the greater freedom he enjoys there. Let that one sink in. America after nine-eleven has became a complete police state compared to most actually sovereignty nations, including Russia. Putin is a beloved leader in Russia because he kicked out the American robber barrons and restored Russian pride and independence. He enforces the Russian Constitution which is based on the American Constitution, only ours has been crippled by treasonous garbage like the Patriot Act and NSA surveillance. Does Putin male enemies disappear? Sometimes, but less than Obama did, you just never hear about the latter. GW Bush extended Presidential executive authority to include the right to order secret executions and rendition to countries that allow torture. Russia does not practice torture or have the largest prison state on earth, American does. Russia is not perfect, not some kind of utopia but they are ultimately no better or worse than America, and in many ways better as far as most freedoms are concerned, how they treat the law, and foreign relations. They have one foreign base. We have hundreds. 
 
And I agree with Donna, Stone-Eater, you are more than welcome to voice your concerns here as you see fit within the Rule of Three which you have never violated. Opposing American hegemony is not the same as opposing Americans or America itself as I see it. 
 
As for 9/11 I'm fairly certain that the official story is as much a conspiracy story as are the so called conspiracies about it. I subscribe to none of them and consider the whole event an unknown chapter in American History, much like whatever really happened in Roswell, or on Mars in the distant past that produced unknown relics there that defy explanation. Or the supposed alien visitors in ancient Sumner or South America. Lots of questions we don't have the answers to. We don't have to know everything or pretend that we do. I do know that one thing about 9/11 is certain, WTC 7 did not fall because of aircraft collisions. No airplane hit it. It was hit by nothing but magically fell into it's own footprint as if by timed explosions. In apparent solidarity with the other two buildings. Draw your own conclusions. I may do an article on 9/11 in the near future once I do the proper research. It would make for a good subject and discussion. 
Donna Added Mar 15, 2017 - 7:46pm

HUTLEY Added Mar 16, 2017 - 12:31am
The problem with your theory about " United States overthrew the democratically elected Ukrainian government 2014 and installed fascists via an illegal coup", is that Ukraines leader Yanukovych, was Putin's puppet. He axed a deal to join the European Union that Ukraine so desperately wanted. When they ousted him for embezzling the country and nixing the EU deal, he ran back to Russia. If he was installed by America, wouldn't he have run back to the US? hmm? Putin wanted no part of Ukraine joining the EU nor NATO. He did not want this AT ALL which he was quoted many times in the press http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/world-july-dec13-ukraine2_12-02/. As I wrote in response to Jeffry's comments on my article about Putin. Canada placed sanctions against Russia as well for invading Crimea, so your theory about "neo lib elites etc." orchestrating some sort of plan to push for world dominance or what ever nonsense you're trying to convey is hysteria. Canada had a CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT FOR 8 YEARS. Yes, our prime minister hated Obama, but recognized that sanctions against Putin were needed. Americans are not the only country in a "western democracy" you know. Yes, Harper disliked Obama administration so much he sued the US govt for backing out of the XL pipeline. So please stop with this whole neo liberal conspiracy theory, it's quite embarassing.
Jenifer Frost Added Mar 16, 2017 - 12:47am
Hutley no one ever said anything about a conspiracy. The neoliberal/neocon warmongering is out in the open, not hidden in secret societies. As far as the coup in 2014 it's fairly well documented but if you insist I can easily again provide the same information I have on it from my last several articles here if you are too lazy to read them and want to embarrass YOURSELF further. Canada based the ridiculous sanctions because it's a vassal of the United States. The Crimean people voted Democratically to rejoin Russia which Crimea had originally been a part of. The sanctions were based on placating the new Nazi government (which I already proved was the result of the coup) and, as usual per the United States, backing fascism over democracy. This is well known history. Don’t you read or research anything before regurgitating this crap? 
Jenifer Frost Added Mar 16, 2017 - 12:51am
Also Hutley how was the ongoing military navel presence in Crimea an "invasion"? Slowest invasion in world history apparently? If it's an invasion so is the American navel base in Cuba. Is American at war with Cuba? Must be according to you. Ridiculous. You know you are ridiculous, right? 
Jenifer Frost Added Mar 16, 2017 - 1:00am
Incidentally the Huffington Post link above that proves the Nazi infiltration in the Ukrainian government also proves that the United States was behind it. It does make mention that it backfired, but that changes nothing regarding who supported it. 
 
And here is some Ukrainian history curiosity of Patrick Writes from Chapter One of this story:
"Crimea was a part of Russia for something 150 years. One of their 3 major Naval bases has been there for as long (and still is today).
 
Kruschev symbolically gifted the Crimea to the Ukraine in the 1960's (because he was from the Ukraine). It was a symbolic gesture at the time that had real consequences when the Soviet Union fell because Crimea (and Russia's Black Sea Fleet naval base) was part of the Ukraine from then on. 
 
Russia was peacefully leasing this base from Ukraine until a few years ago when it appears meddling from the CIA influenced Ukraine to cancel the lease to Russia. That was when the rebels, the vote, the annexation happened. 
 
The CIA did the same to Georgia (right on Russia's doorstep) when Georgia agreed to host the NATO 'missile shield', fighting erupted in two breakaway provinces of theirs who apparently want to be part of Russia. It's all politics, the CIA was trying to undermine Russia's nuke deterrent toward Europe. 
 
I imagine it would be totally different if Russia started building anti-missile weapon systems in Cuba and Mexico and Canada designed to swat our nuclear missiles from the sky. We would sit back and be totally cool with that. There would be no fallout from that (or "rebels" wouldn't materialize if Russia tried to take over Panama and the canal from "us"--it's still under our watchful eye, like we tried to do to them with their Black Sea naval base)."
 
Indeed! 
Louis E Weeks Added Mar 16, 2017 - 10:04am
Hutley,
Yes the former elected leader was indeed very friendly to Russia, and?  Why was America and Europe so set on replacing a Democratically elected leader of a sovereign Nation no matter who he was friendly with?
 
Did the UN declare this man to be a criminal?  The World court?  Who established this man as not being allowed to serve his term as the leader of Ukraine?  Was it the people of Ukraine in a free and fair election or was it done by force with the support of outsiders?
 
 
I find it shocking that people pretend to love democracy until some leader does not want to sign their trade deals and suddenly they have to be removed by force of arms.  America and Europe conspired to remove this elected leader, this should upset any reasonable person who believes in democracy.
Louis E Weeks Added Mar 16, 2017 - 10:15am
Jennifer and Stone,
The defining factor for a conspiracy theory is large holes in evidence and logic to support said claims.  When it comes to 9/11 all of the claims are simply impossible.
 
"Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth." ~  Arthur Conan Doyle


 
I have spent a great deal of time on the 9/11 conspiracy claims and in every case, logic and the lack of evidence shows the conspiracy to be impossible, and the most powerful is the large number of people who would have to be directly and indirectly involved in the conspiracy for it to be true.
 
The National Institute of Standards and Technology released their report on WTC7 and said no explosives were used, how many people must be involved in a cover up of this scale?  Nobody talked?  Bill Clinton could not get a blowjob in the most secure building in America without America finding out about it but tens of thousands of people both Government and civilian decided to conspire to kill 3,000 fellow Americans and destroy buildings and all of them kept their mouth shut?
 
If you do decide to do a 9/11 story I will gladly participate, just wanted to offer a small comment pertaining to WTC 7 being as you mentioned it.

I am ending this derail of the topic, crazy 9/11 conspiracy theories was just an example of a smaller point made by Jennifer and was not an attempt to begin a new off topic debate on her comment section.
 
Conspiracy theorists want to push all sorts of unrelated stuff to try and prop up their lack of evidence and logic of the original premise, why would air traffic controllers be in on the conspiracy?   We can point to tens of thousands of normal every day Americans who would have to be in on the conspiracy for it to work, if you were an air traffic controller covering New York and other areas agree to cover up something like this?
 
But I will leave this there and not reply to anything else off topic because this is taking us off topic.  If Jenifer decides to do a 9/11 conspiracy story we can take this there.

Jennifer,
 
Paul Craig Roberts, is famous for making a lot of assertions about 9/11 that are simply not true, like he says explosives residue were found in the testing, they were not.
 
In fact most of his claims are not support by any verifiable facts, as with all 9/11 conspiracy theory wackos.
 
 
Sorry, if he is your source the story you write will be 100% unreliable.
 
 
I have an expert demolition friend who has done over 150 controlled demolitions in his career and he says it would take at least 2 full weeks to set up and drill in all the explosives needed to do a controlled demolition on one of the buildings, more buildings, more time.  A lot of noise and very obvious to any of the security working the building but people like Paul Craig Roberts, believe the security was not only in on the conspiracy but also went to work and gladly gave up their own lives as part of their contribution to the conspiracy?
 
Anyway, I'll wait and see what you write.

While the new "left" wastes time and energy on Identity Politics and marches to impeach Trump because he's not yet for nuclear war with Russia, tensions between nuclear powers increase and our chances of Armageddon through nuclear war or environmental crisis far outweighs worry over a terrorist attack. But the blind, deaf and dumb Empire marches on to it's own destruction...
