HALT THIS CRAZY RUSH TO ALL-OUT WAR• https://ericmargolis.com, by Eric Margolis
Amen. Besotted by tribalism and propaganda, we often forget why we are fighting and what changes the current war will bring. We think killing fellow humans is a noble quest rather than the basest Stone Age behavior.
Case in point, the current war in Ukraine. There, ex-Russians now rebranded "Ukrainians" are battling Russia's not so competent armies.
The United States and its vassals are pouring arms and money galore into the rebellious Ukraine – over $100 billion to date. This is an amazing amount of money considering hardly anyone in the US had ever heard of Ukraine and certainly couldn't find it on a map, and that this flood of money comes from the US which is itself on the financial ropes and operating on borrowed money.
Getting America so deeply involved in the obscure Ukraine War was thanks to truly monumental propaganda produced by the six US government-controlled TV channels and court newspapers. Its 24-7 happy news about Ukraine and constant vilification of re-demonized Russia.
We are in fact involved in a war that dares not speak its name. Russia denies it's a war at all and claims to be fighting a recrudescence of Euro fascism. The US and its subservient allies also deny a war is going on, while pouring arms and munition on an almost WWII scale into Ukraine – whose government the US spent $5 billion overthrowing.
