So, I guess we’re expected to now believe the war in Ukraine is over, mostly because the USG and its corporate lie factory media insist Ukrainians are cowards not interested in throwing away their lives for actor-comedian-cum-president Zelenskyy and an oligarch-controlled Nazi-Mafia state, the most corrupt country in Europe.
But wait. TIME has spun a new hopeful fantasy on Ukraine. “The situation in Ukraine still favors Kyiv despite the limited progress made in the counteroffensive so far,” according to the neocon Frederick Kagan, Karolina Hird, a “Russian analyst” at the neocon-infested Institute for the Study of War (or, more accurately, for the promotion of endless war), and Kateryna Stepanenko, also an ISW “analyst” pushing for war with Russia, never mind Russia’s preponderance of thermonuclear weapons and advanced military hardware.
Kagan, of course, is lying, either that or he is dumb as a fence pole. For the neocons, in control of foreign policy since the W. Bush administration (and incubated during the Reagan regime), endless war, chewing up millions of lives, and trillions of “thin air” dollars, is Job One for a corporate-government “partnership” (also defined as corporatism, or fascism) and its billionaire “stakeholders” vacationing in space.
There is no end to the lies. “Vladimir Putin’s brutal military assault on sovereign neighbour continues in face of heavy losses and near-unanimous international condemnation,” fibs the Independent.
In fact, the “Global South,” Africa and South America, have not condemned Russia. They understand this conflict is about showing the USG corporate neoliberal hegemon it no longer calls the shots.
Never mentioned is the fact the USG neocons (led by the reprehensible Vicky Nuland at the USG State Department) overthrew the elected government of Ukraine in 2014, thus delivering the state into the hands of psychotic Russian-hating neo-Nazis.
Moreover, these corporate war narrative pushers rarely if ever mention that Zelenskyy was elected to serve as the titular head of Ukraine on the promise of negotiating peace with Russia, an agenda widely supported by the Ukrainian people (who, of course, are irrelevant). The true rulers, of course, are the neo-Nazis and the oligarchs ignored by the war propaganda media.
It is claimed neo-Nazi thugs threatened the multi-millionaire Zelenskyy with an unpleasant death if he didn’t sign off on bombing grandmothers and grade school kids in the Donbas.
Zelenskyy would, of course, prefer not to return to his hometown of Kryvyi Rih, but rather retreat with tail tucked to Rishpen, Israel, where he bought an eight million dollar villa. The corporate fascist media, of course, say they have “fact-checked” this claim and it is untrue. It says the same thing about his Florida mansion. We are instead told the Man in Green lives in a small room.
For a moment there, it looked like the corporate war propaganda media, led by The New York Times, admitted an indisputable truth—Ukraine’s vaunted “counter-offensive” has failed miserably.
It chewed up thousands of additional hapless Ukrainian men, those unable to immigrate or hide out in basements, fearful of neo-Nazi “recruiters” comparable to impressment gangs working as slavers for the Royal Navy back in the day.
For Tony Blinken, Jake Sullivan, and Victoria Nuland, this is perfectly legitimate. After all, they have pledged to support murderous ultranationalist neo-Nazis to the end, even if it means the last Ukrainian must be fed into the Russian meat grinder.
In this way, Blackrock and JPMorgan will have a clean slate—never mind the landmines and depleted uranium—to build back better as a “big Israel,” as Zelenskyy put it. Ukraine will emulate the zionists and impose its own apartheid on ethnic Russians, the same as the Israeli state does to Palestinians.
This is little more than a pipe dream, however, as Russia will not allow a rump state of Ukraine to arm its citizens (those who have not fled) like murderous racist settlers in Israel.
Earlier today, out doing chores, I saw a lawn sign declaring “Slava Ukraini!” In other words, thumbs up for Russophobic neo-Nazis and (1.) the indiscriminate shelling of ethnic Russians, (2.) the brutal incineration of “separatists” in Mariupol, (3.) a death list, posted on the Myrotvorets website, listing hundreds of journalists and those opposed to the neo-Nazi regime in Kyiv (the website is into necrophilia, displaying the dead bodies of Russian soldiers above the fold), and (4.) the obvious fact Ukraine is incapable of defeating Russia.
