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.

Macron vs Le Pen: The terrible outcome of Left's 1968 disastrous compromise

by system failure   It has become completely normal now for people in the "free" and "democratic" West to vote for the "lesser of two evils". Despite the fact that there is nothing democratic and normal in dirty tactics (which include even internal-party coups) organized by bipartisan dictatorships against real-Leftist candidates, the outcome of this process is now considered the new norm. That is, a neoliberal (pseudo-Left for the US) candidate against an alt-right candidate, which is definitely a win-win situation for the capitalist elites against the working class in every country.   This ugly show is repeated election cycle after election cycle. The elites produce huge amounts of propaganda energy, through their corporate media, to remove any anti-establishment real threats. In the final round, they leave their most favored neoliberal Cinderella to face an alt-right bad witch.   Bad witch's role is to scary the liberal and the Leftist voters in ord

Why the US imperialists will boost their efforts to destabilize China through Xinjiang

globinfo freexchange   One of the biggest "wet dreams" of the US imperialists for decades, especially after the Communist victory in 1949, was to break-up China. Xinjiang was among Chinese territories in which the US and the Western imperialism saw an opportunity to grow internal tensions and create serious destabilization against the Asian giant. As The Grayzone revealed in March, 2020, through an extended report :   In recent years, few stories have generated as much outrage in the West as the condition of Uyghur Muslims in China. Reporting on the issue is typically represented through seemingly spontaneous leaks of information and expressions of resistance by Uyghur human rights activists struggling to be heard against a tyrannical Chinese government. True or not, nearly everything that appears in Western media accounts of China’s Uyghur Muslims is the product of a carefully conceived media campaign generated by an apparatus of right-wing, anti-communist Uyghur

Vijay Prashad on the war in Ukraine & the West’s “open, rank hypocrisy” in condemning war crimes

Democracy Now!   As the Russian invasion in Ukraine enters its 50th day, Vijay Prashad, author and director of the Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research, speaks about the war’s impact around the world.    “ When food prices go up, the political crisis is almost immediate, ” says Prashad, who calls the US pressure on Global South countries to cut off essential imports from Russia after a 30-year globalization campaign a double standard. He says if the U.S. encourages greater global division in order to isolate Russia and China, they will implicitly plunge developing countries “ into even greater catastrophe. ” He also says the West — led by the Biden administration — is pursuing a “ casual weaponization of human rights and the word genocide. ” 

Was bombing of Mariupol theater staged by Ukrainian Azov extremists to trigger NATO intervention?

Testimony by evacuated Mariupol residents and warnings of a false flag attack undermine the Ukrainian government’s claims about a Russian bombing of a local theater sheltering civilians.   by Max Blumenthal  Part 7 - The red line: lessons from Syria Was the bombing of the Donetsk Academic Regional Drama Theater of Mariupol a false flag attack executed by Azov extremists to trigger NATO intervention, as some local residents claimed? If so, it was hardly the first cynical deception deployed by Ukraine’s government to draw the West into the conflict, and was unlikely to be the last. On March 16, the day of the incident at the theater, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken declared that “ we have real concerns that Russia could use a chemical weapon, another weapon of mass destruction. ” In the next breath, Blinken pointed to Syria, where he claimed “ we’ve seen them use or acquiesce to [chemical weapon] use. ” It was in Syria where the administration of President Barack Obama imposed its “

The ouster of Imran Khan: How much involvement did the US have in Pakistan’s coup?

Imran Khan joins the long list of deposed prime ministers and underscores the reality that, in Pakistan, whoever the people elect, the U.S.-backed military is always in charge. by Alan Macleod  Part 1 Following weeks of high drama and controversy that have racked the nation, Imran Khan has been removed from office. The Pakistani prime minister suffered a vote of no confidence and a loss in the supreme court, ending his rule after less than four years. Coalition partners abandoned him, leaving his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party in the minority. The cricket-star-turned-political-leader had been warning for some weeks that a foreign power – assumed to be the United States – was seeking to overthrow him because of his independent foreign policy, which saw Pakistan grow closer to Russia and China. Then, in a long public address on April 8, he directly named Washington as a prime instigator in the regime-change conspiracy, accusing the U.S. of bribing his political allies with tens of

“A historic sham”: Zelensky’s speech to Greece’s parliament sparks national outrage, opens WWII-era wounds

By inviting an Azov fighter to address Greece’s parliament, Zelensky opened the country’s historic wounds and triggered angry demonstrations that have shaken its pro-US government.   by TJ Coles   Part 2 - The CIA guides Greece’s post-war plan to “kill the communists”   In 1936, Greek Prime Minister Ioannis Metaxas became a pro-Nazi dictator with the support of King Geórgios II. Metaxas’ death in 1941 bolstered the Greek Communist Party’s (KKE) anti-Nazi resistance. The KKE had established ELAS, the People’s Liberation Army, to fight the occupying Nazis. Until 1943, ELAS was initially trained by the British Special Operations Executive (SOE), a top-secret unit designed to train European paramilitaries. Indicative of the power of Greek leftism, ELAS’s political wing, the National Liberation Front (EAM), boasted 2 million members. The British Foreign Office fought to restore Geórgios II, explicitly citing his anti-left credentials. Working with Cyprus’s fascist battalion X, the Brits set

The US cries about war crimes while imprisoning a journalist for exposing its war crimes

by Caitlin Johnstone   In what his lawyers have described as a “brief but significant moment in the case,” a British magistrates’ court has signed off on Julian Assange’s extradition to the United States, bringing the WikiLeaks founder one step closer to a US trial under the Espionage Act which threatens press freedoms worldwide. The extradition case now goes to UK Home Secretary Priti Patel for approval, which will likely be forthcoming as Patel is a reliably loyal empire manager. After that point, Assange’s legal team will be able to launch an appeal. This is happening at the same time the United States and the United Kingdom are loudly demanding accountability for alleged war crimes by the Russian military in Ukraine, which is interesting because attempting to bring accountability for war crimes is precisely why Julian Assange is in prison. “He is a war criminal,” President Biden said of Vladimir Putin following allegations of war crimes in Bucha, Ukraine earlier this month. “I thin

3 May 2022 and 1119 days in prison for Julian Assange: It's the World Press Freedom Day, yet the greatest journalist of our times is experiencing a slow-motion execution by the Anglo-American imperialist tyranny, with the tolerance of the "free" and "democratic" West

failed evolution   On 11 April 2019, the Ecuadorian government of traitor Lenin Moreno, invited the Metropolitan Police into the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and they arrested Julian Assange . Since then, Assange is kept in Belmarsh high security prison in London, without actual charges.   The real reason world's number one political prisoner is still kept in this high security prison, is because he exposed horrendous war crimes carried out by the US imperialists and their allies.   The ruthless Western imperialist regime wants to punish the No1 real journalist in the world and make him an example for any Whistleblower or real journalist who will attempt to expose its big crimes in the future.   That Assange, who is in precarious physical and psychological health and who suffered a stroke during court video proceedings, has been condemned to death should not come as a surprise. The ten years he has been detained, seven in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London and three in the

Was bombing of Mariupol theater staged by Ukrainian Azov extremists to trigger NATO intervention?

Testimony by evacuated Mariupol residents and warnings of a false flag attack undermine the Ukrainian government’s claims about a Russian bombing of a local theater sheltering civilians.   by Max Blumenthal  Part 5 - Suspicious signs, holes in the Ukrainian government’s narrative emerge Though Azov boasts a sophisticated press unit which films its exploits in the field, and soldiers are publishing even the most banal video of themselves on social media, footage of the theater bombing was nowhere to be found. Photos supplied by Azov to media in Ukraine and abroad invariably depict the bombed-out theater without any people in sight, living or dead. One day before the bombing, on March 15, a group of military-aged men were photographed in front of the Mariupol theater. No women were visible anywhere in the image. The men can be seen placing pallets against the side of the building, ferrying large objects across the theater grounds, and cutting down a fir tree. According to Human Rights Wa

Μακρόν εναντίον Λεπέν: Ένα θλιβερό απότοκο του καταστροφικού συμβιβασμού της Αριστεράς τον Μάη του ´68
