Will Ukraine Become a Flashpoint for US War on Russia? 

by Stephen Lendman ( - Home - Stephen Lendman) 

The book titled Flashpoint in Ukraine: How the US Drive for Hegemony Risks WW III warned of the risk that resulted from what I earlier called the most brazen (US) coup d'etat since Mussolini's 1922 march on Rome — staged in 2014 by the Obama/Biden regime.

Ukraine became the epicenter of Europe's fascist reemergence. Hardline rule replaced democratic governance along Russia's border.

The democratic Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics were established in Donbass — their ruling authorities refusing to accept Nazi-infested fascist rule.

In the coup's aftermath, intermittent war on the breakaway republics has been ongoing for the past seven years — orchestrated and directed by the US, using Ukrainian conscripts as cannon fodder proxy fighters for its imperial interests.

What's going on risks direct confrontation with Russia.

For years preceding the Obama/Biden coup and its aftermath, the US spent billions of dollars sabotaging government of, by and for all Ukrainians democratically.

The US uses Ukraine as a dagger targeting Russia's heartland and its Crimean republic.

The risk of Ukraine becoming a flashpoint for confrontation with Russia is ominously real.

On Friday, the Biden regime "affirmed (its) unwavering support for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity in the face of (what it falsely called) Russia's ongoing aggression in the Donbass and Crimea (sic)."

Biden regime war secretary Lloyd Austin made similar comments. 

He falsely accused Russia of "escalations…and provocative actions in eastern Ukraine (sic)" — how the US operates worldwide, not Moscow.

He said the Biden regime is "committ(ed)" to helping Ukraine "defend (itself) against Russian aggression (sic)" — that doesn't exist.

The US is pouring millions of dollars worth of heavy weapons and equipment into the country for its fascist regime to use for warmaking, not defense.

Ukraine's only enemies are invented. No real ones exist.

US-dominated NATO is a killing machine for preemptive wars on independent nations Washington wants transformed into pro-Western vassal states.

On Thursday — based on US-supplied talking points — an unnamed alliance official said the following:

"Russia's destabilizing actions undermine efforts to deescalate tensions (sic)," adding. 

"Allies shared their concerns about Russia's recent large scale military activities in and around Ukraine (sic)." 

"Allies are also concerned about Russian violations of the July 2020 ceasefire (sic) that led to the death of four Ukrainian soldiers last week (sic)."

No Russian ceasefire violations occurred.

No threat of cross-border incursions by Russian forces into Ukraine.

No Russian responsibility for the deaths of anyone in Ukraine.

No hostile Russian intentions against the country or any others.

Claims otherwise by Biden regime officials and their NATO proxies are  bald-faced Big Lies.

Global war on humanity is what the US and its imperial partners are all about.

It's in stark contrast to Russia's prioritization of peace, stability, cooperative relations with other nations, and adherence to rule of law principles — what rogue state/international outlaw USA and its proxies long ago abandoned.

Russia mobilized forces along its border with Ukraine and in Crimea to protect against hostile actions by Kiev — its legitimate UN Charter right of self defense.

If unthinkable conflict erupts between the US and/or its Ukrainian proxies with Russia, it'll be made in the USA, not Moscow.

On all things related to Washington's imperial agenda, its European colonies march in lockstep, obeying their higher power US master.

Despite no Russian threat to US or European security, the Pentagon's European Command (EUCOM) raised its alert to the highest level.

Was the action taken with escalated US aggression in mind — directly or by its Ukrainian proxies?

Subservient to US imperial interests, Ukrainian forces are prepared for aggression to defend the nation against a foreign threat that doesn't exist.

Just an invented one to justify what's unjustifiable if US dark forces intend escalated aggression or full-scale war by Ukrainian conscript proxies along Russia's borders.

If threatened, Russia's military is well-trained, armed and ready to defend and protect its territory.

If Biden regime hardliners intend challenging them militarily by use of cannon fodder Ukrainian proxy fighters, its recklessness will risk direct confrontation between the US and Russia.

What's unthinkable is possible because of US imperial rage to dominate other countries.

Will Ukraine be a flashpoint in the US drive for hegemony that I and 21 distinguished geopolitical analysts discussed in the book on this cutting-edge topic in 2014?
