Poroshenko is currently losing in the polls and needs a war to stay in power. It seems from what was said at the Munich Security Conference that Mike Pence would like to give him one.
At the Munich Security Conference (2/19), VP Pence urged Germany to create a naval incident in the Kerch Strait.
8 Months in the Ukraine
Snipers in the Maidan
Polish MP and Presidential Candidate conducts a candid interview with a Polish Newspaper and states that the Maidan Snipers were trained in Poland. He is also very expressive on the US and names the countries that are pulling away from the sanctions.
Glenn Greenwald offers these two links on the New Cold War with Russia, with the following words. For the crucial context on NATO/Russia tension that is very rarely heard in the Western press, I highly recommend these two items:
“For several years Russia and her president have experienced endless demonization. The Russians know that Georgia’s invasion of South Ossetia (done while Putin was at the Beijing Olympics) was a Washington provocation. The Russians know that Washington’s coup in Ukraine (done while Putin was at the Sochi Olympics) was a provocation aimed at seizing Russia’s Black Sea naval base in Crimea and cutting Russia off from the Mediterranean.
The Russians know that Washington knows that the charges that Russia hacked Hillary’s emails and the US presidential election are lies. The Russians know that the “Russian threat” created by Washington is a lie along with all of its permutations, such as an impending Russian invasion of Poland and the Baltics. The Russians understand that US ABM bases on Russia’s borders are provocations, as are NATO military exercises on Russia’s borders and in the Black Sea. You can add to this list on your own.”
In this well-linked and very thorough analysis, Robert Parry discusses Obama’s failures and notes potential areas for future Trump triumphs. He believes that Trump could open up to the American People and expose the lies they’ve been told about Ukraine, Syria, Putin, Russia and the Crimea. This is one of Parry’s very best efforts and the links provide the facts in regard to each of the false narratives.
