Ukraine Crisis: US Navy Enters Black Sea, Merkel Calls Putin, Zelensky Talks Peace


How we got here:

Washington’s fascist friends in Kiev

Russia responded predictably:

“All efforts by Kiev to reclaim Crimea are illegitimate and cannot be interpreted in any other way but a threat of aggression against two Russian [federal] subjects. We reiterate that we will consider participation of any states or organizations in such activities, including the Crimean Platform initiative, as a hostile act against Russia and direct encroachment on its territorial integrity,” [Russian FM] Zakharova noted.

Ukraine approves strategy to “recover” Crimea, threatening all-out war with Russia

Biden has not given approval for a new attack, but the US remains firmly on board this plan for the past 7 years:

White House released a statement backing Ukraine in the dispute stating, “The United States does not and will never recognize Russia’s purported annexation of the peninsula and we will stand with Ukraine against Russia’s aggressive acts.”

In reality land there were no “aggressive acts” by Russia in Crimea. The PEOPLE of Crimea (remember them?) voted more than 96% to secede from the unelected, fascist coup regime that the US and EU aided in 2014 and which violently seized power in Kiev.

Writing in the U.S. Naval Institute Journal, Admiral Charles A. Richard warned that the military must “consider the possibility of great power competition, crisis, or direct armed conflict with a nuclear-capable peer” and update and modernize its approach to its two principal adversaries.

“There is a real possibility that a regional crisis with Russia or China could escalate quickly to a conflict involving nuclear weapons,” he wrote, demanding that the United States “prepare for the conflict we prefer, instead of one we are likely to face.

It is not winnable.

It is mass suicide.

Thanks, Trump. Can we dispense with the bullshit about him being peaceful now?

Iran’s statements and actions are pretty unambiguous. It’s a declaration of war on the US and its allies.

Today in psychopaths escalating war:

Israeli Navy ready to block Iranian oil exports in transit – Netanyahu

 

Aiming to reduce Tehran’s oil exports to “zero,” the US threatened global oil buyers with secondary sanctions. Then, after the pressure failed to achieve expected results, a handful of countries were granted a special exemption, with Washington generously allowing them to continue buying crude from Tehran, for the time being.

Furious at American bullying tactics, Iran’s armed forces have said they will protect its fleet of oil tankers against any threats that might jeopardize the shipments.

Barack Obama protected Al Qaeda in Libya and in Syria for more than five years. Now we have six new “deployments” to fight them in six new countries. And the sheeple slumber…
