While privately conceding that its ally Ukraine is not "capable of winning the war," the Biden administration keeps fueling it.
I'm happy to have you in my world, Aaron. I never give up my own authority to decide what to believe based on who to believe, but I agree with your perspective 99% of the time and believe in your integrity 100%.
As always, this substack is $5 well spent.
The official line that "it is up to Ukraine" to make a settlement with Russia is such a bullshit deceitful lie by USA war-hawk crowd whose real goal is to extend the war as long as possible. Aaron's point that if that was true then USA and Boris Johnson would not be scuttling previous negotiations as have. Nor would USA have participated in the sabotaging of Nordstream2 (a direct act of war). The fact is US taxpayers are being forced to flip the bill for a war they were never allowed to vote upon, and for which Biden's involvement in the Ukraine provocation was hidden from voters by DNC operatives and deep-state war planners, that suppressed the Hunter Biden Laptop news story on the eve of our last election.
The USA has not "won" a war since WWII, and after 77 years, I think we know the end game for Ukraine--enrich the MIC, which in turn enriches the elected and appointed officials, weaken Russia and maybe they will fall, keep us all fearful and distracted. I am hoping that what we have learned is that the USA is not democracy and never has been. There is nothing that can save us from ourselves and the greater evil who were elected, short of a people's revolution or Armageddon.
My opninion on Zelensky has (ironically for me) throughout this process changed the most. He is a figure like Melania Trump for me.
On the one hand I pity Zelensky for the situation his is in. I understand his anger and demands towards the west, particularly the US. I'm 100% sure Zelensky was promised "total support" from the US and is seeing now how he was lied to. On the other hand, WTF did Zelensky expect? We have done the same thing to so many leaders in so many countries just since WWII that you have to be a moron to think the US would treat him differently. Alternatively Zelensky is so corrupt that he has convinced himself he'll be able to take the cash and run before someone kills him.
So like Melania, I pity Zelensky, but only to a degree. They made their beds...
When the arms industries and intelligence agencies easy Afghanistan money dried up, they needed another long term conflict for them to keep their profits and funding up.
If US officials really think that Russia "cannot win the war outright" they are living in la-la land. As I see it the only way for this war to end is for Russia to keep grinding Ukraine into the ground until what's left of the military finally gives up, throws down their weapons, and removes the criminal Zelensky regime from power. It can't happen soon enough. Don't the remaining Ukrainian subjects realize that there would be no war if the US Empire wasn't pushing it until the last one of them is dead?
This is the game...fascist US govt. sells weapons to Ukraine. MIC makes tons of $$$. US congress persons and others in alphabet agencies have stock options in MIC. The more war, the more money made. This is evil and especially pernicious evil as innocent people die to keep this game going. And folks say there is no such thing as hell. Really? Methinks Bush is going there...Hillary...Obama....McCain is probably already there....
Aaron you are always a pleasure to listen to even though the subjects you tackle are so difficult. You always are diplomatic in your comments. We appreciate you very much.
Thanks Aaron. Spot on as per normal.
These forever wars are meant not to be "won", but to drag on for as long as possible and continue to drain money out of the Treasury, launder it through the MIC, and funnel it back to the political class after a large cut (estimates are that up to $9 trillion is unaccounted for) is siphoned off. It is probably the biggest heist ever pulled off in history. A racket that has literally transferred trillions of dollars out of the vault of the U.S. Treasury and no one even blinks an eye.
One day I'll read a piece on what is happening in Ukraine today and someone will mention Obama's name and his culpability in what is going on now.
Thank you very much. It is never explained WHY such pathological hate of democratic capitalist Russia and total support of Nazi-dominated Ukraine government !!
Roots for this propaganda predate the Russia-gate FBI-DNC hoax and FBI 2020 election theft.
Stand with Russia – it fights for all of us against bipartisan fascist US/UK warmongering clique.
Jacob Dreizin – Oct. 13 – Racism and anti-Semitism in Ukraine
Bush Obama Clinton not Kerry Trump Biden. All put pressure on Russia in various ways. This continuity is striking. Do US is not a withdrawing empire the way Great Britain was lacking resources after World War II. But I think our policy makers are afraid of losing ground in the long run. hence preemptive action using the poor people of Ukraine who will never recover from this line of action. No one can really predict how this is going to end. I am hoping for sanity from European statesman. Friends who live in Italy complain about the growing mediocrity of European heads of state. I just report With certainty only about the UK where leaders of the labour party and the conservative party fit this description. The only sane one right now seems to be Macron.
Aaron I support all of your work and believe in what you are doing. I am struggling with your support of Scott Ritter. I believe him when he speaks on these issues and find him credible. I hate cancel culture and yet I can’t get square with his history. Can you help me with how you have done so?
Thank you !! Can we talk about Ukraine? (Audio Version) –Darryl Cooper - 10/18/2022
