It’s not Russia that’s pushed Ukraine to the brink of war

The threat of war in Ukraine is growing. As the unelected government in Kiev declares itself unable to control the rebellion in the country’s east, John Kerry brands Russia a rogue state. The US and the European Union step up sanctions against the Kremlin, accusing it of destabilising Ukraine. The White House is reported to be set on a new cold war policy with the aim of turning Russia into a “pariah state”.

That might be more explicable if what is going on in eastern Ukraine now were not the mirror image of what took place in Kiev a couple of months ago. Then, it was armed protesters in Maidan Square seizing government buildings and demanding a change of government and constitution. US and European leaders championed the “masked militants” and denounced the elected government for its crackdown, just as they now back the unelected government’s use of force against rebels occupying police stations and town halls in cities such as Slavyansk and Donetsk.

“America is with you,” Senator John McCain told demonstrators then, standing shoulder to shoulder with the leader of the far-right Svoboda party as the US ambassador haggled with the state department over who would make up the new Ukrainian government.

When the Ukrainian president was replaced by a US-selected administration, in an entirely unconstitutional takeover, politicians such as William Hague brazenly misled parliament about the legality of what had taken place: the imposition of a pro-western government on Russia’s most neuralgic and politically divided neighbour.

I'm amazed, the

MSM just outed the US/Euro's in orchestrating the coup to oust a democratically elected government, and the instigation of the Russians in attempts to pin the blame. Man, it's got to suck being a Rand supporter, since, he too, has just been outed for selling the lies promoted by the globalist Luciferian sociopaths.

Thumbs up

Thanks for the post.

It is almost hard to believe.

We are so accustomed to the egregious spin employed by the Western media it is actually a relief to read what is simply a reasonably balanced article from such a news source.

Seumas Milne has presented something resembling the truth about Ukraine and even though his opinion on the future may be open to debate (who knows?) one is left with a picture that is, in my view, consistent with other factual reports I have read since the beginning of this mess.

I also liked the illustration accompanying the article:

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

Great article

I was listening to a brief news tidbit today apparently a Russian figurehead said something to the effect of "You want to place sanctions then you may also want to use a trampoline to get your astronauts to and from the space station". Ouch...

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
