Lighting the Fires for Chaos in Ukraine By Bruce Gagnon

3 March 2014 — Space for Peace

A couple of people have wondered if I exaggerated the possibility of war with Russia over Ukraine.  I don’t think so – in fact I would suggest that the proxy war is already underway.

UkraineoilTwo of the first things that happened following the US led coup d’etat in Ukraine was the “new government” declaring that the Russian language would be outlawed in the country (which has millions of Russians in it) and that the ban on Nazi symbols and ideology would be lifted.  It cannot be said often enough that many of the violent agitators in Kiev were in fact the ultra-nationalist descendants of those Ukrainian Nazi sympathizers who supported Hitler’s invasion of the former Soviet Union during WW II.

But there is even more.  NSNBC International reports the following:

Being one of the most reliable sources of information about the activities of Turkey’s intelligence service MIT and Turkey’s armed forces, Aydinlik Daily quotes a “source that has spoken with the newspaper”, alleging, that an intelligence unit linked to Turkey’s intelligence service MIT has headed to the Ukrainian Autonomous Republic Crimea to provoke Crimean Turks to act against the ethnic Russian majority and Russian interests in the autonomous republic. The source reported that the deployment of the Turkish unit has been coordinated with both the USA and EU.
Translated this essentially means that for all the moralistic talk coming from the Obama administration about how Russia should not be intervening in Crimea, the US-NATO are, and have been, deeply embedded in the drive to take over Ukraine.

Russian intelligence obviously is aware that this “low intensity” warfare is now being directed by US-NATO.  That is why Putin asked his governing body for permission to move Russian forces into the Crimea to stabilize the situation.  

I am indeed a lifelong peace activist.  I don’t support war.  But I also have always believed that someone under attack has the right to defend himself or herself.  Whether they were the Native Americans; people in Nicaragua being attacked by the US funded and trained Contras; the Syrian government now under attack by a CIA and Saudi Arabian funded and trained Al Qaeda forces; or anywhere else – they have a right to defend their lands.  

This morning I watched a bit of mainstream TV news just to get a feel for what the talking heads were saying.  Here are some of the things I heard:

  • We must put economic sanctions on Russia
  • Putin does “not care” what the US thinks
  • We must “roll back this Russian invasion”
  • Putin is not in touch with reality
  • It’s almost like we are dealing with North Korea
  • Putin is “unstable”
  • There is “confusion in Moscow”
  • Putin is clumsy
  • There could be a military collision
  • US should help bail out Ukraine

The video of Victoria Nuland speaking last December, on a stage decorated with the logos of ExxonMobil and Chevron, is particularly important as she reveals that the US “invested” $5 billion in this coup d’etat.  There can be no doubt that the US-NATO have pulled this stunt and is that not a violation of international law to destabilize and overthrow an elected government?  (Even if you don’t approve of it?)  Is that not an act of war toward neighboring Russia and would not Russia have the right to take measures to stabilize the situation?

Yesterday I watched a video from a news conference where Ukrainian Navy Rear Admiral Berezovsky (who had just been appointed to that post by the “new revolutionary government” in Kiev) had come to Crimea and announced that he was not going to support the coup d’etat and instead pledged himself to the Crimean government, which is allied to Russia.  The mainstream American media this morning was spinning that story by saying Berozovsky had “surrendered” to Russia.

As you can see on the map above this whole situation is about natural gas and oil.  Russia’s huge supplies of natural gas are shipped to Europe and other locations by pipelines that run throughout Ukraine.  ExxonMobil, Chevron and other western oil majors want control of these resources.  Like we’ve seen in Iraq, Libya, Venezuela and other places that have natural resources, Mr. Big is quite willing to destabilize and go to war if necessary to grab these resources. This is a long-term project by the US-NATO and they are just getting started.

Mr. Big is a bully and when anyone stands up to the bully they will be demonized.

One thought on “Lighting the Fires for Chaos in Ukraine By Bruce Gagnon

  1. Tad Davison says:

    The US has worked thus: It first promoted riots and destabilised a legitimate government. Its legions forced the head of that government out of office. It ran a smear campaign of lies, distortions, and misinformation to justify the uprising it paid for with back-channel funding and black ops. It has happened time and time again, and each time, there are more financially subjugated people brought under its sway, with a subsequent loss of self-determination and liberty.

    Its argument is that people should be free to choose their own destiny, which sounds fine on the surface, and it is that mantra that has fooled so many people, for so much of the time. They’re not free at all. They are economic slaves.

    But the REAL reason for the present mess in the Ukraine, is to get rid of the Russian presence in the Black Sea. The Russian fleet is an obstacle to even greater Western expansion, and must be neutralised as part of the US grand plan towards world domination.

    China is reputed to have said we should work towards the de-Americanisation of the world. I never thought I would ever find anything China said would sound so attractive, but this is one formerly pro-western man who has come to see what a nasty piece of contemptible dangerous trash the US state machine really is!
