The Evil Strategy of "Degrading" Russia

•, The Future of Freedom Foundation

After all, the two concepts — the Pentagon's bringing about the crisis and Russia's invasion of Ukraine — are not mutually exclusive. You can have both things happening — the Pentagon gins up the crisis with the aim of "degrading" Russia and then Russia falls into the trap by getting mired down in a deadly and destructive war against Ukraine.

But when one raises the first part of this equation — that is, the Pentagon's role in ginning up the crisis — the mainstream press and Pentagon-CIA supporters go ballistic. For them, it's heresy to point out what the Pentagon did to gin up the crisis. For them, the Pentagon and the CIA are innocent, virtuous babes in the woods that would never do such a thing. For them, the Pentagon and the CIA are nothing but a "force for good" in the world.
