Confirmed: US imperialists wanted to drag Russia into a war with Ukraine since at least 2019

 
As we wrote in our previous article, after almost eight years, the US imperialists and the NATO criminals got what they wanted. They finally managed to drag Russia into a war with Ukraine.  
 
We now have indisputable evidence for that, through a document by the top US think tank, RAND Corporation. In the preface of a 2019 report under the title Extending Russia, Competing from Advantageous Ground we read: [emphasis added]
 
                         The purpose of the project was to examine a range of possible means to extend Russia. By this, we mean nonviolent measures that could stress Russia’s military or economy or the regime’s political standing at home and abroad. The steps we posit would not have either defense or deterrence as their prime purpose, although they might contribute to both. Rather, these steps are conceived of as measures that would lead Russia to compete in domains or regions where the United States has a competitive advantage, causing Russia to overextend itself militarily or economically or causing the regime to lose domestic and/or international prestige and influence.  

We could probably stop here, but the details inside this report specifically concerning Ukraine, are even more impressive: [emphasis added]

                         The Ukrainian military already is bleeding Russia in the Donbass region (and vice versa). Providing more U.S. military equipment and advice could lead Russia to increase its direct involvement in the conflict and the price it pays for it. Russia might respond by mounting a new offensive and seizing more Ukrainian territory. While this might increase Russia’s costs, it would also represent a setback for the United States, as well as for Ukraine. [...] Increasing military advice and arms supplies to Ukraine is the most feasible of these options with the largest impact, but any such initiative would have to be calibrated very carefully to avoid a widely expanded conflict.  
 
The last lines are particularly revealing. Especially the phrase "calibrated very carefully" leaves little doubt about the fact that the US imperialists are only interested to use Ukraine in a dangerous geopolitical game against Russia. Yet, the surprises don't end here. Another part of the report describes the Russian position on the NATO expansion and actually acknowledges Russia's "assistance to the NATO-led campaign in Afghanistan" (!): [emphasis added]
 
                         The Kremlin hoped that its assistance to the NATO-led campaign in Afghanistan would encourage NATO to reciprocate and respect Russian interests. Russian leaders’ muted response to the expansion of NATO in 2004 to include the three former Soviet (and, earlier still, former Imperial Russian) Baltic nations of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania belied intense displeasure at this development, similar to their initial attitude toward the 2003 Rose Revolution in Georgia and the 2004 Orange Revolution in Ukraine, which installed anti-Moscow governments in those countries. Convinced that diplomatic measures had proved impotent to resist further NATO expansion and prevent so-called color revolutions, Russian leaders undertook a military intervention in Georgia in 2008 to signal their determination to prevent further expansion of the Alliance into former Soviet republics that are referred to as Russia’s near abroad.
 
The wider plans of the US imperialists are described briefly in a subsequent paragraph and demonstrate how ruthless can become in their effort to achieve their goals: [emphasis added]
 
                         This chapter describes six possible U.S. moves in the current geopolitical competition: providing lethal arms to Ukraine, resuming support to the Syrian rebels, promoting regime change in Belarus, exploiting Armenian and Azeri tensions, intensifying attention to Central Asia, and isolating Transnistria (a Russian-occupied enclave within Moldova). There are several other possible geopolitical moves discussed in other RAND research but not directly evaluated here—including intensifying NATO’s relationship with Sweden and Finland, pressuring Russia’s claims in the Arctic, and checking Russia’s attempts to expand its influence in Asia.
 
In another piece of the report we read: [emphasis added]
 
                         While NATO’s requirement for unanimity makes it unlikely that Ukraine could gain membership in the foreseeable future, Washington’s pushing this possibility could boost Ukrainian resolve while leading Russia to redouble its efforts to forestall such a development.

Indeed, as we wrote in our previous article, as all that time Russia was also occupied with the war in Syria, it would be almost impossible to open the Ukrainian front too. Yet, finally, the US imperialists pulled their best card to force Putin take military action against Ukraine. They put again on the table the possibility of Ukraine joining NATO through their puppet Volodymyr Zelenskyy. Russia's last red line was violated and Putin saw the invasion of Ukraine as the only option left.

In a subsequent paragraph, we read that the ruthless US imperialists were even acknowledging that their effort to provoke Russia's military intervention could "increase the loss of Ukrainian lives and territory": [emphasis added]
 
                         Eastern Ukraine is already a significant drain on Russian resources, exacerbated by the accompanying Western sanctions. Increasing U.S. military aid would certainly drive up the Russian costs, but doing so could also increase the loss of Ukrainian lives and territory or result in a disadvantageous peace settlement. This would generally be seen as a serious setback for U.S. policy. 
 
At this point we should note that the US has rejected Zelenskyy's proposal for a no-fly zone for Russian flights over Ukraine, as the White House through its spokesperson, Jen Psaki, stated that such a development would require "deploying U.S. military to enforce, which would be ... potentially a direct conflict, and potentially a war with Russia, which is something we are not planning to be a part of."
 

All evidence shows that we were 100% correct when since already 2014 we wrote that:
 
                         What was left to do, for the moment, is to challenge Putin in order to drag Russia in an endless attrition war in East Ukraine and this explains to a degree Putin's hesitation to act like he did in Crimea. Against Russian army, of course, the West will not risk to put an organized military force, but only teams of mercenaries of private armies, as already did. It is certain, however, that, despite that the global economic oligarchy has lost valuable time because of its wrong moves, it will not give up its plans for Russia easily ...

It seems that the neo-nazis of the Azov Battalion are the central core of the pro-Western Ukrainian mercenaries fighting since 2014 against Russian separatists in the East Ukraine. From Wikipedia:

                         Azov Battalion (until September 2014), is a right-wing extremist and neo-Nazi unit of the National Guard of Ukraine, based in Mariupol, in the Azov Sea coastal region. It saw its first combat experience recapturing Mariupol from pro-Russian separatists forces in June 2014. Azov initially formed as a volunteer militia on 5 May 2014 during the Odessa clashes. On 12 November 2014, Azov was incorporated into the National Guard of Ukraine, and since then all members are contract soldiers serving in the National Guard of Ukraine.
 
τάγμα αζόφ ουκρανία

Recall that there is evidence that the US imperialists were pre-planning to arm and train the neo-nazis in Ukraine, already since 2013, indicating that they had probably considered the possibility to drag Russia into a war with Ukraine at least a decade ago.
 
As we wrote in our previous article, it is almost certain that Putin understood that the US imperialists and their allies wanted to drag Russia into an endless attrition war, that's why he designed a full-scale operation, hoping to take the whole Ukraine under full control in a few days in order to impose his own terms. It seems that he had a Blitzkrieg in mind, in order to surprise the West, end the war very quickly with minimum casualties. 

While the US imperialists have already secured some significant gains from the Russian invasion, they may lose the trust of the majority of the Ukrainian population. The Ukrainian leadership looks already frustrated by the fact that the US and the EU appear unwilling to get involved directly in the Ukrainian war-field against Russia.
 
In any case, the next days will show the balance of gains and losses for everyone in the geopolitical field. We estimate that if the Russians fail to achieve a decisive victory within a month, they may stick into a bloody attrition war, just as the US imperialists wanted. And then, Putin may consider to do the unthinkable as his very last option.

God help us ...

  1. Great summary. Bravo!

    Btw. Ukraine invaded Iraq illegally, along with the Coalition of the Willingly Self-destructive.

  2. The cabal that controls the Federal Reserve, wherefrom emanates the REAL power in the US, tried to destabilize Russia with their Ukrainian proxies simply because Russia is a threat to the US$ as world reserve currency.

    Now, the US money cabal is hastening their own demise.

US imperialists sacrifice their European branch on the altar of their proxy war against Russia in Ukraine

globinfo freexchange   To arm the nazis and destroy Ukraine by dragging the country into a war with Russia wasn't enough for the ruthless US imperialists. They had to throw into the arena the entire Europe.    Yet, apart from a few - highly uncertain - successes so far, (coming from one of its most dirty proxy wars), the declining US empire discovers that it has to pay a huge price, just only to challenge the rise of its global rivals. It appears that, so far, the US imperialists are close to fulfill two of their key goals.    First, to lure Sweden and Finland into the NATO trap. A move that could be proved disastrous for two of the most prosperous and advanced European countries, whose achievements materialized (to a high degree) due to decades of neutrality.   Second, to force Russia into a long attrition war with Ukraine. Since already 2014, we wrote that the US imperialists wanted to challenge Putin in order to drag Russia in an endless attrition war in East Ukraine and this

Do it like the Fed: ECB raises key interest rates, creates money circulation loop for big banks and corporations

globinfo freexchange   Inside the storm of inflation, the European Central Bank suddenly thought that it would be a good idea to raise key interest rates for the first time in 11 years.  According to Deutsche Welle (DW) [emphasis added]:                       The ECB raised its negative benchmark deposit rate by 50 basis points from minus 0.5% to 0%, lifting the bank's deposit facility out of negative territory for the first time in eight years. The announcement came as a surprise as the bank had initially hinted that it would hike the rate by 25 basis points only .    It's remarkable that DW's analyst, Kristie Pladson, stated that " ... this is a historic decision they've taken now - first hike in eleven years, so, on that level, it's a little bit unclear exactly what effect it's going to have ... "   However, one thing ECB's move will surely affect, is money access for most of the Europeans. As Pladson says:                      ... what we do

Francis Fukuyama is right: Socialism is the only alternative to liberalism

In Liberalism and Its Discontents, Francis Fukuyama diagnoses the political and psychological malaise caused by capitalism. His analysis makes one thing clear: liberalism is incapable of addressing the social, economic, and ecological crises it faces.    by Samuel McIlhagga  Part 1 In a CNN interview, after another round of the US government’s sanctions on Russia, the following exchange took place between the show’s host and President Joe Biden’s economic adviser Brian Deese:               CNN: What do you say to those families that say, “Listen, we can’t afford to pay $4.85 a gallon for months if not years, this is just not sustainable”?         Deese: Well, what you heard from the president today was a clear articulation of the stakes. . . . This is about the future of the liberal world order and we have to stand firm. The events of the past two years, from the start of the global pandemic to the war in Ukraine, and now the global food shortage, are clear signs that liberalism, as a

Mexico’s President gives Joe Biden a big history lesson

Latin American nations are putting themselves on the front line for the sovereignty of certain countries, and are backing progressive processes in others   by Rodrigo Guillot   Part 1 Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) visited the United States on July 12 and offered five proposals to US President Joe Biden. These proposals are based on AMLO’s in-depth knowledge of Mexican history and his reading of the economic crisis in the United States, which seems to be losing its edge as a global leader. The first of the proposals that AMLO made was about Mexico allowing US consumers to fill gasoline tanks on the Mexican side of the border. By doing so, it is permitting the United States to ease its inflation crisis. AMLO offered to double the supply of gasoline in Mexico in his show of support to further ease the crisis. Second, AMLO said that Mexico would provide for more than 600 miles of gas pipelines along the US–Mexico border to help transport natural gas from Texas to Ar

Paul Mason’s covert intelligence-linked plot to destroy The Grayzone exposed

Leaked emails reveal British journalist Paul Mason plotting with an intel contractor to destroy The Grayzone through “relentless deplatforming” and a “full nuclear legal” attack. The scheme is part of a wider planned assault on the UK left.   by Kit Klarenberg and Max Blumenthal Part 5 - Consulting Nina Jankowicz on paranoid scheme against Consortium News On April 8, Mason emailed Khan to express alarm about a piece in Consortium News , the independent news platform founded by the late Robert Parry in 1995, questioning the Western narrative of the Bucha massacre. “ Who’s behind Consortium News? ”, the subject header read. Assistance soon arrived from none other than Andy Pryce from the Counter Disinformation and Media Development unit at the UK Foreign Office. To learn more about Consortium News , Pryce had consulted Nina Jankowicz, then the chief of the Department of Homeland Security’s newly inaugurated Disinformation Governance Board. (Jankowicz would resign her post in disgrace jus

Official documents prove “Top Gun: Maverick” is military propaganda

by Alan Macleod   Part 4 - Hollywood: the military’s wingman   “Top Gun: Maverick” has been produced at a time when the United States is currently throttling Iran with illegal and deadly sanctions. In early 2020, the Trump administration assassinated top Iranian general and statesman Qassem Soleimani, and influential figures in the United States have called for an unprovoked nuclear attack on the country. Yet none of this context is mentioned, leaving the legality of the depicted attack unquestioned. As Stahl told MintPress , the basic assumption is that “ the U.S. has the right to violate international law and strike any country for any reason. ” “ Imagine if this film came out of Iran and was about striking an Israeli or U.S. nuclear facility, ” he said. “ Heads would explode with accusations of hard-line propaganda. ” Therefore, “Top Gun: Maverick” falls in line in promoting a remarkably militaristic society; one that spends almost as much on war as every other nation on Earth combi

The British establishment chose Boris Johnson as its weapon to defeat the Left

Boris Johnson’s disastrous time in office has spluttered to an ignominious conclusion. Many of those now deploring his record sided with Johnson when it really mattered because they wanted to block a left-wing government that could transform British society.   by Daniel Finn   Part 3 - Change UK Can Believe In Austin and Woodcock weren’t the only Labour MPs to break ranks under Corbyn. In February 2019, seven MPs resigned from the party and set up the Independent Group, which later became Change UK. There was a lot of talk in the commentariat about their potential to break the mold of British politics. Yet in the 2019 election, Change UK — now calling itself the Independent Group for Change — took just over ten thousand votes, marginally outpolling the Monster Raving Loony Party. All of the Labour defectors lost their seats — including those who defected a second time to the Liberal Democrats — apart from the ones who decided not to stand. They’ve since gone on to higher things: Chris

The biggest lie the hawks ever sold

Caitlin Johnstone The biggest lie the hawks ever sold was that their militaristic policies prevent the problems they actually create. Militarizing against Russia caused this war.
