☮ ☮ US warns Russia against Ukraine invasion – Al Jazeera English Does the United States want a war? Read this carefully! Samantha Power used to be a researcher one could respect, albeit not always agree with. Now she has turned into a war-monger. Here she has the guts to say that if Russia should deliver humanitarian aid to the suffering people in Eastern Ukraine, it will be considered “an invasion”. This is a completely new principle in the world community invented for the occasion. And Ban Ki Moon supports the idea that the Ukraine government – which is seriously co-responsible for the humanitarian crisis – does fine in terms of humanitaarian aid. If he had been the UN’s man and not the US’ man he would have condemned both parties’ violence. I mean, Kiev is “killing its own” as they said about Khadafi and Al-Assad and others. Does the US want a war over Eastern Ukraine and force Ukraine into NATO – if not, why is this being handled in this exceptionally confrontational and counterproductive – for the West itself – manner? And when will media people begin to ask that and similar question?
☮ NATO – News: NATO stands by Ukraine, Secretary General says in Kiev , 07-Aug, 2014 Mr. Fogh Rasmussen’s memory doesn’t go as far back as to the U.S.-orchestrated regime change in Kiev without any moves before by Russia. That was a blatant example of disrespect for a country’s sovereignty that he uses now about Russia’s “aggression” in Ukraine. Read William Pfaff’s sober exposé. Due to this “slip” of memory, we get nothing but sandbox diplomacy and – dangerous, dangerous – psycho-projections which serve to cover up for the huge EU and US/NATO mistake over the last 20 years in its policies vis-a-vis Ukraine and Russia. This is dangerous because
Do we see a new moral principle concerning arms exports? ☮ ☮ US supplies Israel with bombs amid Gaza blitz – who is morally responsible for Gaza? – says Al-Jazeera Two points here: 1) While Obama calls for immediate ceasefire, Pentagon keeps assisting Israel in killing even more civilians. Spineless? Absurd? Cruel? Immoral? You name it. The NATO country, Norway’s Nobel Committee should request that Obama returns his medal immediately but be sure it won’t. 2) NATO countries and Obama himself have argued relentlessly that Putin/Russia is responsible for the MH17 catastrophe because it was done by pro-Russians and probably a Russian Buk missile. The handy norm for the occasion is this: The one who delivers the weapons is responsible for hos the recipient uses these weapons. This can be said to be an interesting ethical innovation. But if made the norm, draw your own conclusions about who is mainly responsible for the mass murder in Gaza and the occupation, ethnic cleansing. The U.S. delivers military aid to Israel for US$ 3-4 bn per year.
