Steve Turley weighs in on Ukraine – Russia “Conflict” [Video]

This is remarkably on-target for American audiences.

The statements, views and opinions expressed in this column are solely those of the author and do not necessarily represent those of this site. This site does not give financial, investment or medical advice.

We want to present Dr Steve Turley, who speaks here about the “war drums” beating in Western media, offering us a new war between the Russian Federation and Ukraine. He does an excellent job describing the situation (though, admittedly, we could pick at a few particular issues I think he does not have correct). He also does a very good job putting things in perspective, that if anything, the “buildup” of Russian forces near the Eastern Ukrainian border regions is designed to give Ukraine a moment of pause before attacking rebel forces in Donbass.

In short, the only way Ukraine can come through this unscathed is for the American response to it. In other words:

Joe Biden.

I covered in my own piece here the notion that Joe Biden is the biggest problem in the Russia-Ukraine-US equation because he is unstable, thereby making the United States itself unstable. There are a lot of hawkish neoliberal and neocon people that have an insane urge to go to war with Russia through Ukraine as a proxy. The worst aspect of this is that there are Ukrainian people who think this would be a good idea, too.

Dr. Steve’s response to this is worth listening to and watching. While I personally think a war is extremely unlikely, it would happen because of a flawed American response, not because of a flawed Russian response, and like Dr. Steve, I do not trust the American government to act wisely in this situation, especially given that Imposter Joe called Vladimir Putin a murderer recently.

Unhinged and unwise.

Too bad he has no understanding of the events in Ukraine. How the Western Nazi Bandera supporters occupied government buildings. Yanukovich was a weak, corrupt leader and released everyone the police arrested. When he heard they were coming to kill him, he fled. No mention of the Odessa Massacre. The silence of western people proves their lives are meaningless to the West. When the Eastern Ukrainians behaved in the exact same manner as the West, they sent tanks and airplanes to kill them. Mark Parubuy and friends are busted for sniping the idiots in Kiev. Look up the Crimea Parliament… Read more »

That’d be Andriy Parubiy, the author of Ukraine’s biographical equivalent to Mein Kampf and Congressional pet-fascist-of-the-month club, not to mention co-author of the sniper massacre of Maidan and beyond.

Corrections to this presentation: 1) there was no Russian “invasion” of Crimea, that formulation was spread by Barack Obama. Russia maintained its naval base with a 16,000 man garrison before the referendum; Not a single soldier crossed its international border: 2) Ukraine is seeking to avoid compliance with the previously agreed to upon Minsk Protocalls requiring that it grant special status to the breakaway Republics of Donetsk and Lugansk and negotiate directly with its representatives. President Zelensky is now seeking NATO membership so as to draw US military support for an offensive against the Donbass republics. 3) Russia’s response has… Read more »

The US will continue supporting Ukraine in its dreams of conquest as long as it maintains its own dream of evicting Russia from Sevastopol and docking NATO ships there.

Idiot U S Ambassador needs to explain Why Russia would saddle itself with economic basket case.

He’s simply talking through his arse, not uncommon for that political class.

The US hopes that Ukraine’s ethnic-cleaning campaign of continuing helter-skelter fire into the Donbass will eventually drive the Russian friendly population out of Ukraine and into Russia itself.

Russia could never hold such hopes, as driving the Banderites from Western Ukraine into Poland could never happen, as the local Poles, who never forgot the Volhyn genocide, would more than likely massacre them on the spot.

So, that gives the US somewhat of an upper hand in that respect.

Quote, ” the “buildup” of Russian forces near the Eastern Ukrainian border regions is designed to give Ukraine a moment of pause before attacking rebel forces in Donbass.”Unquote. Really ? and HOW does the author know this ?? Dose he have an inside line to the Russian Government or something ??? Ever since the COUP in Ukraine, critics have been persuing the idea of Russia taking over the Ukraine without any substantiating evidence to support their claims. The Russian leader and his representatives have on many ocassions stated publicly via the media, that they are not the least bit interested… Read more »

How does the author know this?

BECAUSE – it’s simple, common sense, that’s why. No need for a degree from West Point to understand it.

Even the MSM understands it, in spite of their flights of fantastical fabrications to the contrary. They’re devious, not stupid.

I think you’ve misread “designed to give Ukraine a moment of pause before attacking rebel forces in Donbass.” The ‘moment of pause’ was meant for the Ukraine to reconsider any thoughts of attacking the Donbass. Certainly not any reference to Russia’s intentions to attack the Ukraine UNLESS they failed to take such a pause to reconsider any such thoughts. And even more certainly, not a Russian attack on Ukraine itself but an attack on Ukrainian attackers in and around the Donbass. Even Putin’s ‘will lead to the destruction of Ukraine itself’, I very much doubt was meant as an intent… Read more »

Biden agreed to be led by the nose into calling Putin ‘a killer’, not a murderer.

To that, I say – what leader of a major nation cannot be called ‘a killer’, including Biden himself and every POTUS before him.

If anything, the very question and answer expose the true killer, what should be known to all by now, that the MSM has KILLED honest, objective journalism once and for all. Just for the arrogant WaPo’s benefit, let’s throw democracy as a victim in there as well.
