I am reading these dark mornings of the events leading up to World War II, wondering if the Brits, cunning bastards that they are, were not playing the little corporal as he maneuvered to incorporate Czechoslovakia and Poland into his empire. Did the Brits and Germans share a common goal, to bring down the Bolsheviks? (Of course, by that time, Russia was long over its Bolshevik spell and was merely another military dictatorship.) What the Germans wanted was the Asian frontier, defined these days as Ukraine, but an interface of Western and Eastern cultures that today splits that country in two.
As if now Act II of this play, the neo-Nazi regime in Kiev, put in place by machinations of NATO and US-backed forces (repetitive phrasing, I know), including a strong Jewish element, is goading the Russians to defend their frontier against repeated provocations. Such atrocities as the burning down of a trade union building in Odessa, incinerating those forced to remain inside, and then the shooting down of MH17*, are designed to bring the Russians into Ukraine. When that finally happens there will be a shrill cry of outrage among the toadies of the Western media about Russian “aggression”, as when Russia “seized” Crimea by an overwhelming plebiscite.
So it is with some trepidation that I learn from the Saker that the provocations are working. Heads of state must be cautious and circumspect in speaking in public, as it is assumed that their words carry the weight of the structure behind them. Here’s Vladimir Putin:
Today there is fighting in eastern Ukraine. The Ukrainian central authorities have sent the armed forces there and they even use ballistic missiles. Does anybody speak about it? Not a single word. And what does it mean? What does it tell us? This points to the fact, that you want the Ukrainian central authorities to annihilate everyone there, all of their political foes and opponents. Is that what you want? We certainly don’t. And we won’t let it happen.
Putin, perhaps the most widely respected leader on the planet at this time (despite the howling of US and British state-controlled news and entertainment media), is drawling a line with those words. The Russian military will easily crush Ukraine forces, and that is not the point. Rather, it is the feigned outrage that will follow, that the Russian response will be used as justification for Western attacks … this is the whole point of the Kiev machinations.
*The time to investigate MH17 has long since passed, as evidence by now is presumed corrupted. I assume, but will never know, that it was Western-backed agents that shot it down, and JC offers some insight in a comment below another thread on this matter too. In another piece, Saker reminds us to be cautious regarding evidence that has already surfaced, as Western intelligence agencies are very good at playing both sides of the fence.
