Biden Regime Playing with Fire on Ukraine
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org - Home - Stephen Lendman)
Belligerent USA is an unparalleled menace on the world stage — especially when undemocratic Dems are in power like now.
Since Biden replaced Trump by brazen election rigging, its hardliners escalated war on nonbelligerent Russia by other means.
A previous article expressed concern about whether Ukraine will become a flashpoint for US war on Russia — using Kiev conscripts as cannon fodder in pursuit of Washington's imperial aims.
Intermittent war by Ukraine's US armed, trained and directed conscript forces has been ongoing for the past seven years.
Conflict resolution is off the table because it's contrary to US hegemonic aims.
In short order, Biden regime hardliners created ticking bomb conditions in Ukraine to serve their Russophobic agenda.
The regime is stacked with an array of militant Russophobes.
As long as they control vassal state Ukraine, full-scale war in Europe's heartland remains an ominous possibility.
If erupts, nations bordering and near Ukraine may be adversely affected.
Russia for sure because US stoked war in Ukraine would be all about trying to harm its security and standing among world community nations.
Other European nations at risk of harm are bordering states Belarus, Moldova, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and Poland — Germany as well despite not sharing a common border with Ukraine.
At a time of Main Street economic collapse in the US and other Western countries, perhaps their Russophobic dark forces see war along Russia's border as a useful distraction — especially by blaming US orchestrated aggression on Moscow.
Will a made-in-the-USA false flag unjustifiably justify full-scale war in Europe's heartland?
Joint military drills involving at least five US-dominated NATO countries and Ukraine are planned ahead — a Pentagon drafted joint statement saying:
"(D)efensive actions (sic) will be worked out, followed by an offensive in order to restore the state border and territorial integrity of a state that has been subjected to aggression by one of the hostile neighboring countries (sic)" — a fabricated reference to Russia.
Days earlier, Kiev falsely claimed a "significant increase in shelling and armed provocations by the armed forces of the Russian Federation" along their joint border (sic)."
No Russian shelling is going on — not now, earlier or planned — except in self-defense ahead if US orchestrated aggression threatens Russian territory or its nationals in Donbass.
The US installed fascist regime in Kiev urged "increase(d) international political and economic pressure on Russia."
For their part, Biden regime hardliners pledged "unwavering support" for US vassal state Ukraine.
In response to announced US-dominated NATO military drills with Kiev, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said "such a development of the scenario would…increase…tension(s) near the Russian borders."
"(T)his will require additional measures from the Russian side to ensure its security," adding:
Measures will include "everything that is needed."
US escalated conflict near Russia's border is "frightening (because of many Biden regime orchestrated) provocations by the Ukrainian forces," Peskov stressed.
No Russian threat exists to Ukraine or any other countries.
Last week, Russia's deputy foreign minister Andrey Rudenko accused Washington and Kiev of "spread(ing) fake" news about a Kremlin threat to Ukraine that doesn't exist.
"Russia is not interested in any conflict with Ukraine, let alone a military one," he stressed.
Defying reality, Biden regime war department spokesman John Kirby falsely claimed that "we've learned from bitter history (sic) not to just take at face value Russian claims of their intentions (sic)."
Last week, Sergey Lavrov warned of US-led "incite(ment)" along Russia's border with Ukraine, adding:
Biden regime dark forces (my words, not Lavrov's) who would try to start a new war in Donbass will destroy Ukraine."
If occurs, resumption of full-scale —US orchestrated and instigated — war in Donbass would be all about wanting Russia to intervene defensively.
If things turn out this way, Moscow will be falsely accused of aggression — again.
US-led Western sanctions war on Russia will escalate.
So will the risk of direct confrontation between the US and Russia.
Biden regime dark forces want Ukrainian conscripts to do their fighting and dying for US imperial interests — similar to how Washington uses ISIS and other jihadists as proxy troops in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere.
Head-to-head, Ukrainian forces are no match against superior Russian military strength.
They'd be smashed in a matter of days if threaten its security.
Perhaps mass desertions would occur in Ukrainian ranks, conscripts wanting to be home with family members, not waging war they want no part of.
The danger of escalated Biden regime war on Russia by other means turning hot is ominously real — because its geopolitical team is stacked with militant Russophobic hotheads.
