Both wings of the US war party prioritize eternal wars: analyst
An American writer and political commentator says that the two right wings of the American war party forever prioritize wars by hot and / or other means against invented enemies.
Stephen Lendman made the remarks in an article published on Sunday as he commented on the endless warmongering of the United States against Russia, accusing it of planning to invade neighboring Ukraine.
The United States, its NATO allies and Ukraine have accused Moscow in recent weeks of increasing the number of troops near the Ukrainian border in preparation for a possible invasion. Russia rejected the claim, but warned against provocation from Ukraine.
Russia has repeatedly said it is free to move troops within its own borders, but said its military build-up is not provocative. Russia has said it is taking defensive steps against Ukraine’s closer alliance with the West and its aspirations to join NATO.
White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan said on Friday that US intelligence agencies concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin still had not made up his mind to invade Ukraine, but was considering ” seriously “to do so.
Last week, US President Joe Biden warned Putin against military action by Moscow against Kiev, saying the Kremlin would pay “a terrible price” and suffer massive consequences if it attacked its neighbor to the south.
“I made it clear to President Putin (…) that if he attacks Ukraine, the economic consequences for its economy will be devastating, devastating,” he said.
“On the world stage, Russia and the hegemony of the United States are worlds apart”, Lendman wrote. “The Russian Federation gives priority to peace, stability, cooperative relations with other countries and respect for the principles of the rule of law.
“The two right wings of the American War Party prioritize standing wars by hot and / or other means against invented enemies year round, including during the holiday season at home and abroad,” said he added.
“Sharing a nearly 1,500-mile land and sea border with Russia – the longest western border with the country – Nazi-infested Ukraine is used by mainstream American diehards like a dagger pointed at its heart,” he observed.
“Orchestrated, financed and directed by the Pentagon and the CIA, Ukraine has been waging a cross-border war against the People’s Republics of Donbass, Donetsk and Lugansk since April 2014,” noted the analyst.
Lendman warned that “the risk of a greater war in the heart of Europe is significant at a time when Washington and its NATO vassal states continue to dump heavy weapons on Ukraine for offensive purposes and not defensive “.
The US and UK have threatened Russia with “massive consequences” if it launches military action in neighboring Ukraine, despite Moscow rejecting Washington’s claims of preparing to invade the country.
A senior US State Department official said last week that the Group of Seven Richest Countries and its allies would impose tough measures if Russia abandoned diplomacy in its dealings with Ukraine.
The British Foreign Secretary also warned that Russia would face “serious consequences” if it invaded Ukraine.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg also warned Russia against an escalation of the conflict in Ukraine.
