Ukraine is the epicenter of possible European war. Ongoing events
should scare everyone.
Kiev's war on Donbas rages. Area freedom fighters continue routing
its military. It's desperate for more Western support. Wanting
greater numbers of US-led NATO boots on the ground than are already
involved in fighting.
Three recent regime false flags didn't achieve Kiev's objective.
Perhaps something major is planned. A Kiev 9/11. Big enough to
embroil Europe in war. Meaning East/West confrontation. America v.
Russia. Possible nuclear war.
It bears repeating what previous articles stressed. Today is the
most perilous time in world history.
Stop NATO reports are
"US Army Trains for New War in
Europe," reported editor Rick Rozoff.
Exercise 'Allied Spirit I'

Continuing through January 31.
"(D)esigned to provide multinational
interoperability training at brigade and battalion levels to

In other words, prepare for potential
war with Russia.
According to US Army Training and
Doctrine Command (TRADOC) commander General David Perkins:
America's military is responsible
"synchronizing and delivering
national power (to) seize, retain and exploit the initiative
and maintain relative advantage over all enemies."
Prepare for an eventual US/Russia
military showdown if current political and economic war fails to
achieve Washington's objective.
Namely, turning Russia into another US colony. Eliminating a major
rival. Controlling its resources. Exploiting its people.
America's strategy for unchallenged global dominance. Waging
permanent wars to achieve it.
Ongoing in Europe's heartland. Kiev's war on Donbas rages.
Threatens to become much more than civil

While systematically violating them...
Arming, funding and training Kiev's military. Participating in its
war on Donbas.
Disingenuously talking peace. Waging dirty war without mercy.
Showing no signs of ending. Heading for potentially much greater
conflict than already. Ukraine is effectively bankrupt. Its economy
deeply in tatters. Outside aid alone keeps it from disintegrating.
Whether enough remains to be seen.
At the same time, military spending increases.
So-called defense is the only sector of
Ukraine's economy showing growth.
Illegitimate oligarch president Poroshenko said,
"(t)his year we plan to increase
strength of the armed forces of Ukraine up to 250,000 people."
In other words, preparing for greater
conflict. Backed by US-dominated NATO.
Risking far greater war than already.
"NATO Trains Very High Readiness

Code language for possible war on
Russia? It remains to be seen.
US-dominated NATO policy heads
dangerously in this direction.
Obama wants congressional authorization for unconstrained war. On
the phony pretext of combating IS. Syria, Iran, Donbas freedom
fighters and Russia the real targets. With lunatics running things
in Washington, expect continued wars without end ahead.

On December 4, US House members barely stopped short of declaring
war on Russia. Overwhelmingly passing a non-binding resolution.
Signaling hostile US intentions.
Former Congressman Denis Kucinich said at the time:
"NATO encirclement, the US-backed
coup in Ukraine, an attempt to use an agreement with the
European Union to bring NATO into Ukraine at the Russian border,
a US nuclear first-strike policy, are all policies which attempt
to substitute force for diplomacy."
Heading things dangerously toward open
confrontation. The unthinkable. Possible nuclear war.
Last May, Senate members introduced

aggression toward Ukraine and other sovereign states in Europe

members considered it. No action was taken so far. Perhaps in the
new Congress. Obama as anti-Russian as congressional hawks.
Fascists making policy.
Proposed legislation provides,
"major non-NATO ally status for
Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova for purposes of the transfer or
possible transfer of defense articles or defense services."
Effectively incorporating these
countries into NATO. Making its killing machine more formidable.
Letting Washington establish bases on Russia's border. Challenging
Moscow irresponsibly. Risking direct East/West confrontation.
Ongoing events risk the worst possible outcome.
Chossudovsky is clear and
"America’s s global military design
has been one of world conquest."
"War and globalization are intricately related. Militarization
supports powerful economic interests."
"America’s 'Long War' is geared towards worldwide corporate
expansion and the conquest of new economic frontiers."

"a formidable military force,

Potential US-instigated nuclear war threatens humanity's survival.
MSM propaganda increases the possibility.
So does public indifference. Anti-war activism is absent. More than
ever needed to stop America's hegemonic madness. Its "long war"
rages. No end in sight looms.
Either we find a way to end it or it'll
A Final Comment
On Thursday, EU foreign ministers met in Brussels. Extended
economic/financial sanctions on Russia through September.
Agreed to consider additional ones. To be decided when ministers
meet on February 9. A statement issued lied. Blaming Russia for
"continued and growing" support for Donbas rebels. Saying Moscow
shares "responsibility" for escalated conflict.
Russia and Donbas freedom fighters are consistently blamed for
Kiev's crimes. Greece's new government expressed phony rhetorical
opposition to renewed sanctions.
Its Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias approved them. Brussels
unity was required to do so.
"We are not the bad boy," Kotzias
Saying one thing. Doing another shows
what ordinary Greeks can expect from its new government.
A previous article called it business as usual wrapped in populist
rhetoric. Betrayal after promising real change.
Moscow's EU ambassador Vladimir Chizhov commented saying:
"By acting in such a narrow-minded
way, the EU in essence is subjecting to additional tests our
partnership - the partnership between Russia and the European
Union, which is regrettable."
"(B)esides selective assessments of these or those events,
sweeping criticism of Russia is the dominating element."
"As if Russia, and not the Kiev authorities with the connivance
of the EU, had unfolded the bloodbath in eastern Ukraine."
"The call for implementation of the Minsk agreements contrasts
with statements heard in the past few days from the Ukrainian
capital that they are no longer content with the Minsk
agreements and it’s necessary to seek another format."
"But while these conversations can be heard, shelling of
residential districts of Donetsk, Luhansk, Gorlovka continue."
EU foreign policy chief Federica
"while summing up the meeting on
Thursday, selected three components in the EU's reaction to
deterioration of the situation in eastern Ukraine.
Unfortunately, all three are wrong."
On Thursday, Putin said Russia,
"must overcome the pressure of
external factors by means of strengthening its economic and
"The current period is not easy," he explained. "(B)ut nothing
unexpected has happened. The crisis developments were expected."
Russia won't surrender its political and
Putin promised new measures for,
"additional stability against
"diversification, the growth of
non-energy, high technology, agriculture, and the national
financial and banking sector."
At the same time, he intends confronting
major Western challenges diplomatically. Given America's rage for
regime change, he'll need tough-minded policies with teeth.

Russia and the Neocon March to World War 3
January 30, 2015
The Neocon march to World War III with Russia is explored with
retired Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, Paul Craig Roberts.
George W. Bush and
Cheney managed to embolden the far right towards reckless
endangerment of global peace, and how Russia has become the focus of
the static is discussed.
The possibility of global economic
collapse, plus the Reagan administration figure talks about how the
political landscape has changed for the worse in this uncensored
political discussion on Buzzsaw, hosted by Sean Stone.
