Q: Why Washington has a love affair with weak states.

A: Ease of manipulation, esp. if fascist goon squads are at hand to facilitate the process.

Don’t forget the essential ingredient, a thin veil of democracy – for plausible deniability’s sake. And never, ever look behind the curtain.

NATO and Rothschild got away with murder in Yugoslavia in the 1990s

Not so easy in 2014.

Re: Ukraine and the Law of Extra-Constitutional Right to Self-Determination and without delving into the added nuances of blowback from nefariously illegal coup d’etats etc, there are two simple analogies that dictate the outcome:

1) Slovenia was to Yugoslavia as Crimea was to Ukraine.

2) Kosovo was to Serbia as the Donbass was to Ukraine.

Either one consistently abides by the ‘rules-based western international order’ that they themselves devised, or they don’t. Simple as that.

…always the narrative that everybody else is attacking Russia, to hide Putin, internal management incompetence, that created the most unequal state in the world, were the vast majority is very poor and some Putin friends are obscenely rich!..always forgetting that all Russian neighbours want to cut their links with Russia, because this country just brings horrific memories, poverty and violence!…Russia is just a very inconvenient neighbours for everybody else!…in the case of Ukraine there is real hate towards Russia as we remember history and the sinister Holodomor…until Russia transforms itself in a normal state, base in the rule of law,… Read more »

Normal state, huh. Is that sort of like rules-based international order? Why not just face the cold, hard facts – that far too many Ukrainians are so genetically predisposed to ideological fascism and genocidal habits that as one, you should have thanked Stalin for not having wiped you out en masse. It’s so prevalent in their national character that it must be in the genes. Besides, ignoring those Russians affected and hijacking the famine for your own fascistic self-actualization is a significant mark of weakness of character. I suppose such self-aggrandizing habits and fascism go hand in hand. I’ll have… Read more »

I’m not much for invoking religious tropes but if there’s one thing that encapsulates Ukraine’s behavior these past years, it’s ‘a sin before God’

BTW: What do ‘mincing words’, MS journalism and western diplomacy all have in common?

A: They’re all dead on arrival.

No need for a doctor to merely treat the symptom, just a head on attack of the disease itself by purging fascism from Ukraine.

A sharp scalpel, unlimited patience and a dedicated eye on the cancerous lump should do the trick

I can see it now. Russia sanctions all economic dealings with Ukraine, the EU scrambles to lift its quotas for Ukrainian staples sending EU farmers into the streets and threatening to take down their governments. The EU retreats and Ukraine goes into a budgetary tailspin. Civil unrest erupts across Europe, each state desperate to export its chaos to the next state. The US reacts by attempting to strong-arm the EU into launching life-boats into the gathering tsunami, with predictable results.

It must be that the ‘devious’ Putin had it planned all along. LOL

French farmers taking to the streets with pitchforks, hunting down any Ukrainians they find and pitchforking them to the walls, just as those noble Banderites did to Polish women and children in Volhynia and Galicia.

Seems like a fitting end to the Ukrainian saga.

The Americans have refined their trade since those cannon boat days in Latin America. Ukraine is not a banana republic. It has an industrial base and a well-educated population, left over from the Soviet Union. When Brennan and Nuland visit, it is to give orders, no doubt. It’s a wicked witches’ brew of imperial design, fascism, corruption as well as weakness and subservience. So sad.

They HAD an industrial base most of it is wrecked looted plundered robbed blind cut in pieces and sold to the highest bidder the money they made with that as well magically disappeared, most of the working remaining parts are in eastern Ukraine out of reach + control of the Regime in Kiev and their Oligarch + Western cronies. Millions of the well-educated population left/fled the country mostly to Russia.

Reading so much about Ukraine gives me major agita but I can’t seem to help myself. It’s like watching a train wreck in slow motion.

The clown is now turning into a tracig figure. A ukrainian Macbeth maybe with Mrs. I-want-your-land as lady macbeth ? Rather the two stooges. After firing the whole cabinet and even going after Vitali Klitschko (who is a national hero in Ukraine) the clown now is officially at war with his own people. That’s what being a “friend of the west” gets you. He truly is leading a very dangerous life now. And no one will take him, not Turkey, not France, no luck. It’s a strange thing with the sewers in Kyiv, if you step on one you never… Read more »
