Kiev Junta Plans Renewed Aggression

Kiev Junta Plans Renewed Aggression

by Stephen Lendman

Minsk II resolved nothing. Russia bashing remains intense. Brussels imposed new sanctions. Obama intends more US ones.

Moscow and rebels are blamed for Kiev ceasefire violations. Britain intends getting more involved.

Prime Minister David Cameron is more appendage of US foreign policy than independent UK leader. RT International blasted his war-mongering featuring one Big Lie after another. 

He sounds like Obama with an English accent. He's "deploying (dozens of) British service personnel to provide advice and a range of training, from tactical intelligence to logistics to medical care," he said.

"We will also be developing an infantry training programme with Ukraine to improve the durability of their forces." 

"This will involve a number of British service personnel. They will be away from the area of conflict but I think this is the sort of thing we should be helping with."

UK Defense Secretary Michael Fallon lied saying Britain's deployment is "(i)n light of continued Russian-backed aggression…"

It's part of Obama's preparation for more war. Peace is anathema to Washington. Big Lies blaming rebels for Kiev ceasefire violations are used as a pretext for supplying junta forces with more heavy weapons.

Washington provides plenty covertly. Expect lots more ahead. UAE agreeing to sell weapons violates Minsk.

Purchased from US producers. Providing plausible deniability for Washington. 

Letting Obama circumvent Minsk through a foreign supplier. Expect others enlisted to sell more.

The Colonel Cassad web site said "junta (officials) will be trying to get weapons from the West as it expects the renewal of military action in the spring…which clearly shows" things headed for more war.

UAE and other foreign suppliers are distribution sources "through which American weapon systems will be shipped."

Things continue escalating dangerously. Ongoing events show Obama wants war, not peace.

It hasn't gone unnoticed in Moscow. Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said rearming Ukraine "would be a major blow to the Minsk agreements and would explode the whole situation."

Moscow won't remain indifferent "to such provocative actions, We'll have to act appropriately," he said.

Instead of ending ongoing madness, Washington escalates it dangerously. Willfully sabotaging Minsk and Normandy Four's declaration calling for:

  • strict implementation of Minsk;

  • swift withdrawal of heavy weapons from frontline positions;

  • full cooperation with OSCE monitors;

  • establishment of "working groups" to "achieve progress" toward regional peace and stability;

  • providing Donbass residents with vitally needed humanitarian aid; and

  • continued commitment to resolving crisis conditions diplomatically.

Washington's agenda is polar opposite. It's committed to use junta forces to gain total control over Ukraine. To crush Donbass democracy.

To assure fascist rule nationwide. To use Ukraine as part of its longterm Russian regime change strategy. 

Part of its greater world dominance agenda - furthered by waging one war of aggression after another.

Rearming Ukraine along with rebuilding its military risk exploding Europe in conflict for the first time since WW II. Madness demanding mass action to stop.

On February 11, Senator James Inhofe (R. OK) introduced S. 452: Defense of Ukraine Act of 2015. A bill to provide lethal weapons to junta fascists to wage aggression against Donfass freedom fighters.

A petition circulating online aims to block the measure, saying in part:

"The United States is the leading provider of weapons to the world, and the practice of providing weapons to countries in crisis has proven disastrous, including Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria." 

"Expanding NATO to Russia's border and arming Russia's neighbors threatens something worse than disaster. The United States is toying with nuclear war."

"…Russia has been denounced for 'aggression' in the form of various unsubstantiated accusations, including the downing of (MH17)."

"…Western interests at work here other than peace and generosity. GMO outfits want the excellent farming soil in Ukraine." 

"The US and NATO want a 'missile defense' base in Ukraine. Oil corporations want to drill for (its) fracked gas…" 

"The US and EU want to get their (dirty) hands on Russia's (oil and world's) "largest supply of natural gas…"

"We routinely recognize the financial corruption of the US government in domestic policy making." 

"We shouldn't blind ourselves to it in matters of foreign policy." Possible nuclear war looms. Nothing is more important than stopping it.

Rumors suggest overt Nazi lunatics may topple Poroshenko and take over.

The Saker translated a Right Sector statement suggesting what's possibly coming, saying:

"A year ago, they came to power in our blood. The blood of patriots." 

"During this year they gave up the interests of Ukraine and betrayed the idea of the Ukrainian nation." 

"They promised to fight corruption. They promised lustration. They made us poor." 

"They destroyed belief in justice. They killed the truth. We remember the never investigated murders of hundreds of Maidan." 

"We remember the murder of Sasha Belyi. We remember the shameful surrender Crimea." 

"We remember Saur-Mogila, Ilovaiisk, the Donetsk airport, Debaltsevo." 

"The perpetrators have not been punished. It's time to hold them to account!"

An accompanying poster states:

"March of the Truth

March of the Right

The Maidan did not fight for a regime of traitors

It is time to hold them to account."

Signed by the Right Sector and Trezub paramilitary Banderists. The Saker calls them "even crazier crazies than the regular crazies."

No telling what's possible if these lunatics gain power. Odds for Europe exploding in conflict become greater. 

Washington and Britain may initiate it on their own. Irresponsible Russophobia rages. 

On February 20, London's Guardian headlined "Russian expansionism may pose existential threat," says NATO general."

UK General/deputy NATO commander Adrian Bradshaw accused Russia of "threat(ening) our whole being." NATO is preparing to counter a nonexistent Russian invasion. 

Lunatics like Bradshaw, NATO chief Philip Breedlove, new Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, Obama's national security advisors, other White House neocons, and likeminded NATO allies may launch humanity ending WW III.

Never in human history has mass annihilation been more possible. On February 24, events in US satellite/NATO member/Russiaphobe Estonia weren't encouraging.

Independence Day commemoration was used as a pretext to parade heavy weapons around 300 meters from Russia's border - a likely US-instigated provocation.

US military hardware displayed American flags. Estonian officials regurgitate Western Big Lies about nonexistent "Russian aggression" in Ukraine.

Used as a pretext to deploy increasing numbers of US and other NATO forces close menacingly close to Russia's borders.

Things seem headed inexorably toward East/West confrontation. Perhaps a major US instigated false flag will initiate it.

As long as lunatics run the Washington asylum, the worst of all outcomes is possible.
