Lugansk Civilian Bombing
The Human face of Kiev Bombing
WHAT IS THE US / EU / UKRAINIAN ARMY STRATEGY?
At least in Gaza, Israel uses the excuse of hunting terrorists. What is the excuse for random terror bombing of civilians in Lugansk / Donetsk? Kiev is losing the ground war, losing military jets, losing draftees, needing increased mobilization, losing its coalition government, and rapidly going broke. Yet it increases the genocidal bombing of “pro-Russians.”
Simultaneously, in a myriad of dubious coincidences, a commercial airline crash almost causes enough outrage for a major war. If MH17 was a false flag, WHY?
East Ukraine seceded because of a political coup where they were not represented. They didn’t ATTACK the central government. They VOTED to secede after the Constitution was abrogated by a faction in one city.. But the unelected Kiev coalition-junta immediately responded with a full-scale military attack to FORCE re-affiliation by attacking civilian areas, a strategy which logically would justify and harden the resistance. Subsequently, the US-imposed and -controlled junta refuses to consider ANY negotiations without first DISARMING the secessionists, before passing any legislation that would address their concerns.
How would THAT sound to pro-2nd Amendment Americans?
The attacks are against “pro-Russian Ukrainians”, not military targets, nor even the specific government buildings taken over by the locals. Apparently occupying government buildings is now a capital crime in Ukraine (except in Kiev’s Maidan). The Western propaganda is hysterically and universally and immediately Anti-PUTIN, not anti-Strelkov.
The agenda seems to be to PROVOKE a Soviet-style reaction by Russia, which can be SOLD by PROPAGANDA as “another Russian invasion of a US ally.” Despite this explanation, Crimea was re-affiliated with mother Russia by overwhelming popular support, with absolute minimum casualties, in contrast to Kiev’s attempts to re-affiliate Donbass. If Russia can be maneuvered to be perceived as brutally invading Ukraine “against international law”, NATO would be “required” to respond with direct attacks on Russia from East European forward NATO bases, which were installed with full preparatory logistics (“purely defensively” of course). Now these bases are being quietly (i.e.: ignored by MSM) readied with increased aircraft, and “symbolic” transfers of elite military units, from the Baltic to the Balkans.
Now, the Ukrainian army has been surreptitiously shelling RUSSIAN territory near Rostov, while Western media is claiming that Russia is building up forces on the border and shelling Ukraine FROM Russia.
The GOAL is apparently ALL OUT WAR with Russia and forcible retaking of Crimea. Undoubtedly with the objective of disabling Russia’s Black Sea fleet, giving NATO total DIRECT control of the Black Sea access route to Caspian Oil & Gas reserves, with or without Russian Pipelines.
Coincidentally (again?) NATO naval maneuvers JUST concluded with US, Romania, Turkey, Bulgaria, with an emphasis on mining operations. Other than Sevastopol, what ports are worth mining in the Black Sea? With Greece, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova, Ukraine, Georgia and Turkey as NATO allies, there is very little BESIDES Crimea to prevent the Black Sea from becoming Lake NATO. Crimea is critical for US/NATO control of Caspian gas fields. The current land war may be just a diversion to justify a naval war to accomplish it. Crimea cannot be attacked successfully by land due to easily blocked chokepoints.
US doesn’t want a cease fire, nor will it be satisfied with a Ukraine Confederation including Donbass. It is committed to military confrontation. US wants the GAS. It wants an excuse for inflating the petrodollar, and it needs cover to avoid the US economy from tanking, especially before the November US elections. It just needs to catch the public up with the decision already made.
If this is the strategy, it is becoming desperate, especially with the breakup of the junta government. The Right Wing Svoboda has bolted. UDAR has no influence. The Tymoshenko-proxy PM has quit. Now, the war will have to accelerate, and become more like Syria, with increasingly random Right Sektor atrocities, at the direction of the CIA. ESPECIALLY if MH17 is shown to be a failed US false flag.
All the “evidence” put forth blaming Russia in one form or another, has been fabricated, or “confidential”. The old “Trust us, we’re the good guys-type evidence.” Since that tragic event didn’t trigger the expected result, what next? There is an media-hyped attempt to insert NATO troops at the crash site (to protect it). Then, maybe massacring them by a “Russian Missile”? (Similar to first responders at the WTC.) The war acceptance threshold needs more dead bodies, but they really need to be innocent Americans or EUs. Slavic bodies, like Palestinians, don’t matter. They have less value as emotional propaganda, especially when those bodies are atrocities caused by the West, at which point they are ignored by the “Stenographic Media” (Abby Martin’s bulls-eye).
Something will have to occur to generate sufficient outrage to start a full scale NATO-Russian war. The West seems to be hard at work in the propaganda arena. The current tack continues to be trying to provoke Putin to make a drastic move. But, so far, Putin seems to have figured that out! He is presenting HIS evidence about MH17, while quietly arming Donbass with defensive weaponry against the civilian terror bombing by Kiev in such a way as to maintain some thin deniability. He cannot allow the West to attack his flank and do nothing.
The US (the shadow government behind the puppet Obama) seems to have made the decision that Russia is as vulnerable as it will ever be. The recent BRICS currency agreement threatens the petrodollar, and if successful will accelerate the demise of US economic hegemony. US overt aggression has reached the desperation stage.
In my opinion, only Germany is the key to avoid a catastrophe. Merkel needs to take EU leadership away from the Anglo-American hegemony/suicide cabal (hegemony for US/ suicide for Europe). Intercontinental nuclear exchanges is a price not yet willing to be paid by the US. Therefore, the sole risk is to Europe in a ground war, previously believed anachronistic. In such a scenario, only the US benefits. (CUI BONO anyone?) If war starts, the private-bank Fed finances it, Europe and Russia suffer it, in manpower, and economic progress. Subsequent destruction would need to be rebuilt by US multinationals, with similar experience in Afghanistan and Iraq, financed by US and UK banks.
Today, Obama is golfing. Next week, Congress closes down for a month. It will be a bloody August… just as it was exactly 100 years ago, beginning August 5, 1914, the Battle of Liege.
