Over the previous two weeks, media headlines worldwide have been dominated by the Russian navy intervention in Ukraine – launched in response to virtually 9 years of Western provocations, starting with the CIA and MI6 orchestrated Euromaidan color revolution in November 2013, following then-President Viktor Yanukovych’s resolution to droop an EU commerce deal in favour of nearer ties with Russia, which in flip would to steer the predominantly ethnic Russian Donetsk and Luhansk Folks’s Republics within the japanese Donbass area breaking away from Kiev’s management in April 2014, the catalyst for this secession being the anti-Russian far-right sympathisers that will make up the Western-backed post-Maidan authorities of Petro Poroshenko.
A close to eight-year lengthy warfare on each Republics would comply with, involving Kiev-supported neo-Nazi factions corresponding to Azov Battalion and Proper Sector, resulting in an estimated 14,000 deaths, a battle that Moscow would search to resolve via diplomatic means through the Minsk Agreements, which might see a federalisation resolution wherein Donetsk and Luhansk could be granted a level of autonomy while nonetheless remaining underneath Ukrainian rule – the failure by Kiev to implement their aspect of the agreements nonetheless, in addition to the continuing assaults on the ethnic Russians within the Donbass and the inevitability that Ukraine would in the end go on develop into a NATO member and host weapons and troops meant to assault Russia, would in the end pressure Moscow into launching a navy intervention into its Western neighbour in an effort to demilitarise and de-Nazify the nation.
Two weeks into the battle, it has develop into obvious from the company media narrative of the ‘Ukrainian resistance’ that the objective of the US and its allies, with little regard for the Ukrainian civilians they declare to care about, is to tug Moscow right into a navy quagmire within the second largest nation in Europe – a tactic with historic utilization towards the Kremlin, when in 1979, on the top of the Chilly Battle, the CIA and MI6 would start a covert operation of arming and coaching Islamist fundamentalists, together with Osama Bin Laden, referred to as the Mujahideen, who would go on to wage warfare on the then-Socialist authorities of Afghanistan – resulting in a ten-year lengthy Soviet navy intervention, one thing which many commentators have seen as a contributing issue to the next break-up of the bloc in 1991; certainly, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Nationwide Safety Advisor to US President Jimmy Carter when Operation Cyclone was launched in 1979, would later recount in a 1998 interview about how drawing the USSR right into a pricey navy intervention was a motivating think about its inception.
Regardless of the intention of the Neocons and the warfare foyer to being to seemingly draw the Russian Federation into an Iraq war-style quagmire nonetheless, there additionally seems to be a component who favour an strategy which might result in much more grave penalties – a Libya-style no fly zone over Ukraine, involving the capturing down of Russian plane by NATO, which might undoubtedly set off a catastrophic third world warfare involving using nuclear weapons.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, a newfound darling of the Western media since their protection of the Russian intervention started, has repeatedly referred to as for the implementation of a no fly zone over his nations’ skies, World Financial Discussion board-linked Ukrainian activist Daria Kaleniuk went viral along with her plea for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to intervene militarily towards Russian forces, and a current ballot by company media outlet Reuters discovered that 74% of People supported a no fly zone over Ukraine – with it remaining unclear on whether or not these polled had been conscious of the nuclear apocalypse that such a measure would entail.
Regardless of this push for a Western navy intervention in Ukraine, US President Joe Biden, Boris Johnson and NATO Secretary Basic Jens Stoltenberg have made it clear that such a measure is off the desk, every citing the worldwide nuclear battle that will undoubtedly comply with as the rationale – although this may occasionally appear a purpose to be optimistic that the present Ukraine disaster gained’t become World Battle III nonetheless, it doesn’t rule out the much more hawkish members of the regime change foyer looking for to hold out a false flag operation in Ukraine, one with the intention of implicating Moscow, and to push public and political opinion much more in direction of help for a NATO intervention, a tactic with very current utilization.
In 2017, the Syrian Arab Republic had been within the six-year lengthy grip of a Western-backed regime change operation launched in response to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s 2009 refusal to permit US-allied Qatar to construct a pipeline via his nation, one that will have undermined his relationship with key-ally Russia. Just like the aforementioned Operation Cyclone, Timber Sycamore would see the arming, funding and coaching of Wahhabi terrorists teams by the West and its allies, with the intention of eradicating Assad’s secular authorities and changing it with a Western-friendly management.
In June 2013, Iran and Hezbollah would intervene within the ensuing proxy warfare on the request of the Syrian authorities, offering a key position in helping Damascus in repelling the Western-backed terrorist marketing campaign; what would maybe be probably the most decisive think about turning the tide of the battle within the Arab Republic’s favour nonetheless, would are available in September 2015 – a Russian air marketing campaign, once more on the request of the Syrian authorities, concentrating on the terrorist teams, and which allowed Damascus to retake the huge swathes of Syrian territory which had come underneath their management, corresponding to the important thing metropolis of Aleppo.
With the Syrian regime change operation not going as deliberate, Washington’s Neocons would quickly resort to determined – and reckless – measures.
On the 4th of April 2017, a false flag chemical assault happened within the Syrian city of Khan Shaykhun, the blame instantly being positioned on Damascus and ensuing within the then-US administration of Donald Trump launching cruise missiles strikes on a Syrian authorities airbase three days later, a extremely provocative motion although one which simply stopped wanting the full-scale navy intervention that the regime-change foyer had clamoured for – undeterred, the identical tactic could be carried out a yr later within the metropolis of Douma, which once more would end result within the US, Britain and France launching air strikes towards Syrian authorities targets, additionally simply stopping wanting a full-scale intervention.
This isn’t to low cost the grave seriousness of NATO launching a navy strike towards a Russian ally and the potential penalties that that motion might have entailed nonetheless, and will the same false flag operation happen in Ukraine, maybe additionally involving chemical weapons or a nuclear reactor as Moscow itself has warned of in current days, even a ‘restricted’ strike towards Russian navy infrastructure would instantly place the world on an irreversible path to probably the most grave consequence of all – nuclear warfare.
