If so, we have no one to blame but ourselves. Months ago I remember reading on Tony Cartelucci’s site, LandDestroyer (here), that the spearhead for the Ukrainian opposition is the the Neo-Nazi group Svoboda, who John McCain happened to be at a rally with in the Ukraine.
The corruptness of the Ukrainian coup and the US and Nato’s relationship with them has been further Documented by Paul Craig Roberts. Here is a quote from Roberts’ article,”The Crisis in Ukraine”:
As Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland made clear in her speech last December and in the leaked recording of her telephone conversation with the US ambassador in Kiev, Washington spent $5 billion of US taxpayer dollars engineering a coup in Ukraine that overthrew the elected democratic government.
William Engdahl, writing at his own website, WilliamEngdahl.com, and Russia Today has also made connections between western establishment interests and key members and groups involved in the Ukrainian coup:
Evidence suggests that key players in the Ukraine protest movement are being steered and orchestrated by Washington-funded NGO’s like the National Endowment for Democracy, the German Marshall Fund in The United States (a Washington think-tank financed by a donation from the German Parliament), and certain key neo-conservative Bush-Cheney leftovers in senior positions at the State Department.
Already on October 11, 2011, the German Marshall Fund hosted Vitaly Klitschko, then-WBC Heavyweight Boxing Champion just entering Ukraine’s political boxing ring, at a Washington meeting to discuss Ukraine’s European perspective.
(As a side note I’d like to point to a historical pretext for Germany’s interest in Ukraine. Ukrainian nationals helped the Third Reich during WWII(see Bandera), and it should be noted that a large number of German immigrants settled in Ukraine region during the nineteenth century.)
Max Blumenthal has also made the same connections as the above authors.
This is reprehensible, but it is nothing new. I neither like nor respect the Russian government, nor do disagree that the Ukraine is riddled with corruption. It is time though to turn a critical eye introspectively. From Libya, to Syria, to Ukraine, to Iran the United States and Nato have been an aggressive force, albeit often covertly, however indiscreet to any incisive observer of “modern” civilization.
Someone I respect a great deal said that the Universe is spoken into existence.
Despite what this so called US government tries to coerce people to agree to, I am not at war. I do not go to war with Russia, or Syria, or Ukraine, or anywhere else. And anyone claiming to be acting on my behalf in this regard does not have my consent to wage war.
I am a small voice, a single voice, but others must speak up,others are speaking up. Do not consent to wars of aggression, or the coercion of other groups and nations into war with each other. The death of the anti-war movement with the election of the current administration is a tragedy.
A better world is possible, and it is right there to be lived, and it begins with a refusal of consent. It is an act of empowerment, and if enough people begin to take an active part in refusing consent I believe we will be surprised at the effect this has on transpiring of events.
