All-Out War in Ukraine: NATO’s ‘Final Offensive’

November 21st, 2014

James Petras

Introductions

There are clear signs that a major war is about to break out in Ukraine: A war actively promoted by the NATO regimes and supported by their allies and clients in Asia (Japan) and the Middle East (Saudi Arabia). The war over Ukraine will essentially run along the lines of a full-scale military offensive against the southeast Donbas region, targeting the breakaway ethnic Ukraine- Russian Peoples Republic of Donetsk and Lugansk, with the intention of deposing the democratically elected government, disarming the popular militias, killing the guerrilla resistance partisans and their mass base, dismantling the popular representative organizations and engaging in ethnic cleansing of millions of bilingual Ukraino-Russian citizens. NATO’s forthcoming military seizure of the Donbas region is a continuation and extension of its original violent putsch in Kiev, which overthrew an elected Ukrainian government in February 2014.

Kiev Plans Full-Scale War

November 21st, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

Ukraine is the most serious post-WW II geopolitical crisis. At risk is escalated East/West confrontation. Possible global war.

Obama bears full responsibility. Complicit EU partners share it. America goes all-out to advance its imperium.

Millions of corpses attest to its barbarity. Replacing independent governments with subservient pro-Western stooge ones is longstanding US policy.

Washington-supported Kiev putschists staged the most brazen coup d'etat since Mussolini's 1922 march on Rome.

Ukraine is the epicenter of European fascist reemergence. Hardline rule masquerades as democracy. Elections are farcical when held. Illegitimate by any standard.

US-Led NATO Risks Global War

November 20th, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

Washington operates extrajudicially. Threatening world peace. The world's global outlaw. Russia its moral leader.

Vilified for doing the right thing. For defying America's hegemonic ambitions. Forthrightly. Courageously. Honorably. Responsibly.

Supporting nation-state sovereign independence inviolability. Holding firm against America's rage to dominate.

Especially over Russia. Never, according to Vladimir Putin. Not now. Earlier. Or ever. For sure not with him in charge.

On Tuesday, he spoke at the all-Russia People's Front. Responding to film director Yuri Kara. Asking if America wants to humiliate Russia. "(N)ot so," said Putin. "The United States is not trying to humiliate us. It wants to subdue us, to settle its own problems at our expense."

The Fall of the Berlin Wall and the Multiplication of Western Walls

November 16th, 2014

James Petras

Introduction

On November 9, 2014, Germany and its Western Allies, celebrated the ‘Fall of the Berlin Wall’ and the subsequent‘re-unification’of the ‘two Germanys’. Prime Minister Merkel described the ‘historic event’ as a “victory of freedom for all peoples in Europe and across the world.” The entire Western media and officialdom echoed Merkel’s rhetoric, as 300,000 Germans gathered at the Brandenburg Gate hailed their leader as she spoke of ‘one people, one nation and one state in freedom, peace and prosperity...’ But Merkel’s discourse is a self-serving chauvinist fabrication which distorts the real consequences of a united Germany. Moreover, the Western celebration of ‘fallen walls’ is very selective.

The notion that Germany was ‘unified’ democratically is of dubious historical accuracy. The consequences of a powerful unified Germany have not led to a peaceful prosperous Europe and Germany’s current role in world politics, particularly its policies toward the Middle East, North Africa and the Ukraine, has been anything but peaceful.

NATO Wants More Troops to Counter Nonexistent Russian Threat

November 5th, 2014

NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg- "Washington's man at NATO"

New NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg mimics his predecessor. A convenient US stooge. A CIA asset.

Beholden to America's imperial interests. Mindless of rule of law principles. Repeating one Big Lie after another.

Wrongfully claiming Donbas democratic elections were unlawful. Shamelessly accusing Russia of threatening Ukraine's border.

Groundlessly saying it "continues to support, train and equip" Donbas self-defense forces. Ludicrously "call(ing) on Russia to make genuine efforts toward a peaceful solution."

No country anywhere did more for it responsibly since conflict erupted in Ukraine. None exerted more genuine efforts tirelessly.

Polar opposite Washington's rage for war. Along with its rogue NATO partners.

What Stoltenberg didn't explain. Washington's man at NATO. A convenient US stooge. Chosen for that reason. For sure not for world peace.

Ukrainian President Poroshenko in Washington

September 20th, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

A previous article discussed his three-day North American tour. His illegitimacy doesn't matter.

Nor his hardline anti-democratic fascist ideology, lawlessness or war without mercy against Ukrainian citizens.

He was treated like visiting royalty. Obama warmly greeted him at the White House. In late August, press secretary Josh Earnest issued a statement saying:

"President Obama will host President Petro Poroshenko of Ukraine at the White House on Thursday, September 18." "The visit will highlight the United States' firm commitment to stand with Ukraine as it pursues democracy, independence, and stability."

Mocking Putin's Good Faith Ukraine Peace Plan

September 5th, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

On Wednesday, Putin offered a seven-point plan to end Southeastern Ukraine's conflict. A previous article discussed it.

It's genuine. It's sincere. It's fair-minded. It favors neither side. It's a way to restore regional peace. It's an important proposal to keep conflict from spreading.

It doesn't matter. Obama wants war, not peace. So do rogue NATO partners. Kiev's puppet regime is a convenient proxy.

MSM scoundrels ridiculed what demands support. More on this below.

Selling Nato's Killing Machine

September 2nd, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

On August 17, the Wall Street Journal and Washington Post featured op-eds selling NATO at a time when its existence more than ever threatens humanity's survival. More on them below.

Claiming NATO is a "political and military alliance for peace and security" is farcical on its face. Its mission is polar opposite.

US-led NATO is an imperial tool. It's a global killing machine. It prioritizes war. It deplores peace. Humanity's survival hangs in the balance.

NATO includes 28 member nations, 22 Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council (EAPC) ones, seven Mediterranean Dialogue countries, and four Istanbul Cooperation Initiative (ICI) states.

They comprise nearly one-third of world nations. NATO plans exponential expansion. It wants new members and partners.
