Pepe Escobar: So Who Wants a Hot War?

"...Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Sergei Ryabkov, has struck a much less Daoist note then Peskov: 'The United States is our enemy, doing everything to undermine Russia's position in the international arena, we do not see other elements in their approach to us. These are our conclusions.' That's stone to the bone realpolitik. Ryabkov knows the Hegemon's 'non agreement capable' mindset inside out.

Eurasia integration - in both the Chinese and Russian vision - are all about interconnected economies via inter-regional trade. So it's not by accident that the Hegemon - on the verge of becoming an irrelevant player across Eurasia - is going no holds barred to harass and try to smash the continental integration by all means available. In this context, manipulating a failed state to meet its own doom is just (circus) business."


"On the 28th April, as happens every year in Lviv, Ukraine, the'll hold a march to celebrate the forming of the 14th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS (1st Galician). Yes you read that correctly, this is 'in honor' of the Ukrainian Waffen SS division. Let that sink it."

And let it also sink in that Canada knows.

"I can not find any 'western' media that reported the march..."


Here in Canada the powerful Banderite lobby  which now largely determines our foreign policy on Ukraine ( just as the Zionist one does on Israel) and was built upon the ideals (and resettled veterans) of SS Galician, continues the fascist fight..

Russian aggression in Ukraine and why Canada must embrace engagement

This is  an interesting piece.

Two highly problematic issues arise with this talk. First, it ignores the fact that any stable solution to the war requires either massive disenfranchisement, political cleansing, and deportation of the ‘collaborationist’ population from the breakaway Donbass region or, alternatively, the transformation of Ukraine into a radically more culturally, ideologically, and politically pluralistic country.


NATO summit to discuss Ukraine's membership next month. Nuland accompanies Blinken to Kiev

"...Although Ukraine is not officially a NATO country, it has attained NATO standards in the last five years thanks to support from Turkey, the US, the UK, [Canada,] and Poland. Ukraine enacted a strategy document in March to reclaim its occupied territories after realizing it had completed its military preparations.

The above, the author added, accounts for Ukraine's increasingly assertive if not abrasive approach toward the Donetsk and Lugansk republics in the Donbass and toward Russia in recent months. The unanimity and rapidity with which the US, NATO and the European Union fell into line with that new confrontational approach establishes without doubt the coordinated plan the parties had agreed on.

A statement by Polish President Andrzej Duda below hints at what may well be the larger plan. To add the final touch to plans for a united front against Russia and Belarus, it was announced that on his visit to Kiev starting today, Secretary of State Antony Blinken is accompanied by his recently confirmed Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland, arguably the main architect of the 2014 violent overthrow of the government of President Viktor Yanukovych..."

Sure hope the Americans and their nasty little gang don't try anything stupid but history suggests they might be stupid enough to try.
