JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: JAMES MATTIS MAKES LOONY CLAIMS ABOUT RUSSIA WANTING TO RE-DRAW BORDERS – RE-HASHED PENTAGON PROPAGANDA – TRUTH ABOUT UKRAINE   Leave a comment

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE INDEPENDENT

Donald Trump ‘actively reviewing’ sending weapons to Ukraine after Kiev reports 3,000 Russian troops in country
Russia ‘seeking to redraw international borders by force,’ James Mattis says

That claim is a complete falsehood.

If Russia wanted to “re-draw the border,” it could readily have done so.

As Putin famously remarked quite a while ago – a remark deliberately twisted at the time by Washington – if he wanted to do so, he could have his tanks in Kiev in two weeks.

Putin’s patience throughout this entire matter of an American-induced coup against a neighboring, democratic government has been admirable.

He has not recognized the breakaway Donbas area of Ukraine – overwhelmingly Russian speakers who could not accept the new coup-government’s efforts to suppress their interests, even their language.

He has not sent massive forces to defend them, which he could easily have done.

He helped create the Minsk Agreements and has done everything to support them as a way of returning to something resembling normality.

Can anyone even imagine the Pentagon’s reaction to a coup staged in Mexico by Russia or China? The tanks would have been in Mexico City in days. Threats of nuclear war would be in the air.

The entire Ukraine coup is a disgrace. This was a democratic government toppled solely to hurt and provoke Russia. The smiling psychopath, Obama, approved it, but Trump’s gang of Pentagon thugs now carries right on (again giving us a strong clue as to who really determines America policies abroad).

Not only shouldn’t the US be interfering like this in the affairs of others – and we know from overheard words of former State Department’s Neocon fanatic, Victoria Nuland, that the US spent $5 billion on this effort – in the process, it has induced large numbers of deaths and it has supported Ukrainian extreme right-wing outfits who parade around with symbols very much resembling those of Nazis.
