Ukraine Campaign: Pope Points Name to Arms to Pious Christendom

On Sunday, Secretary of State Tony Blinken, a accountable authorities official heading international affairs and representing the US on the worldwide stage, “casually steered” that Poland might hand over its complete fleet of 28 Soviet-era MiG-29s to Ukraine, determined for imposing no-fly zone, and, in return, the US authorities would “backfill” the Polish Air Power with American F-16s.

“We’re trying actively now on the query of airplanes that Poland might present to Ukraine, and how we would be capable to backfill it ought to Poland resolve to produce these planes,” Talking alongside Moldovan President Maia Sandu, Blinken advised a briefing in Chisinau on Sunday, March 6.

Upon getting wind of the “facetious comment” by the charismatic secretary of state idolized by diplomatic neighborhood for wavy salt-and-pepper hair and suave Parisian etiquette, Russian protection spokesman Igor Konashenkov issued a stark warning that any try by an out of doors energy to facilitate a no-fly zone over Ukraine, together with offering air strips and plane to Kyiv, can be thought-about a belligerent within the struggle and handled accordingly.

Hours after the Russian warning, the Polish Overseas Ministry issued an emphatic denial, saying offering plane to Ukraine was out of query because the MiG-29 fleet constituted the spine of the Polish Air Power. In a weird flip of occasions in a single day, nonetheless, Poland introduced yesterday, March 8, it was able to switch the plane to the Ramstein Air Base in Germany on the disposal of the US which might then hand them over to Ukraine.

However the denouement of the diplomatic fiasco got here at present, March 9, after the US, occupying a excessive ethical floor, categorically rejected the preposterous Polish supply, initially made on Warsaw’s behalf by none aside from the US secretary of state.

The prospect of flying fight plane from NATO territory into the struggle zone “raises severe issues for the complete NATO alliance,” the Pentagon sanctimoniously revealed at present. “It’s merely not clear to us that there’s a substantive rationale for it,” Pentagon spokesman John Kirby dignifiedly added.

Solely two conclusions might be drawn from the risible gaffe: both the inept secretary of state was unaware of the Pentagon’s “severe issues” relating to flying fight plane from NATO territory into the struggle zone whereas initially floating the weird proposal, or the reluctant Polish supply of transferring its complete fleet of MiG-29s to Ramstein on the disposal of the US was nothing greater than a humbug designed to supply face-saving to its NATO patron whereas it was already determined behind the scenes that Washington would spurn Poland’s nominal supply.

As for NATO’s “gracious favor” of deciding not making an attempt to implement no-fly zone over Ukraine, which is being propagated as a “concession to Russia” and “peaceable intentions” of the transatlantic navy alliance by the company media, it’s price stating that no-fly zones might solely be enforced towards Third World international locations, comparable to Gaddafi’s Libya or Saddam’s Iraq, whose air forces solely had a number of dozen creaking outdated plane purchased in scrap following the Second World Battle.

Although it stretches credulity, even when NATO decides to impose a no-fly zone over Ukraine, who’s going to implement the unimaginable resolution of imposing no-fly zone towards one of many prime air forces on the earth? If something, Russia is now going to implement no-fly zone for hostile plane in Ukraine’s airspace by deploying S-400 missile protection methods following the approaching fall of Kyiv. Taking a backseat within the Ukraine battle by the NATO powers isn’t a “goodwill gesture” to Russia, slightly it’s a difficulty of missing navy capability to confront resurgent Russia underneath Putin’s astute management.

How ironic that regardless of investing trillions of {dollars} over a long time on their deadly military-industrial advanced, all the worldwide bullies might do is sow chaos and mayhem throughout the Third World however are left with no different selection than turning the proverbial different cheek if confronted with equal navy powers, comparable to Russia and China.

Regardless of covertly mounting proxy struggle towards Russian forces in Ukraine by offering funds, arms and coaching to myriad closely armed militias allied with Ukraine’s safety forces, NATO hesitating to instantly have interaction with Russian floor and air forces is based on the premise that if the battle spirals right into a nuclear struggle, it could be catastrophic not just for belligerents but in addition for the entire world.

Even when the probability of a nuclear struggle is excluded for argument’s sake, bratty Zelensky throwing mood tantrums and fervently cajoling macho Uncle Sam to impose a no-fly zone would stay a puerile fantasy. NATO’s fancy albeit outmoded plane are merely not a match for venturing into air-to-air dogfights with Russia’s technologically superior Sukhoi fighter jets, globally acclaimed S-400 air protection methods and cutting-edge hypersonic missiles.

Constructed by Lockheed Martin and Common Dynamics within the eighties, over a dozen F-16 plane have crashed in Pakistan alone. Its flight security report is worse than the flying funeral hearse Boeing 737 Max. Aviation aficionados have beneficial that Pakistan Air Power ought to solely induct JF-17s, co-produced with China, as an alternative of losing billions of {dollars} international trade on substandard American junk. As for C-130 transport plane and B-52 bombers constructed within the fifties following the Second World Battle, these “Hindenburg’s Zeppelins” rightfully belong in classic aerospace exhibition slightly than being inducted in fashionable air forces.

The Pentagon publicly confessed to over 30 Damaged Arrows [1], severe nuclear accidents, together with by accident dropping atom bombs on populated areas within the US and Europe that fortunately didn’t explode, although the true variety of such nuclear accidents is calculated to be in hundreds, notably on the top of the Chilly Battle throughout the sixties when such apocalyptic “accidents” had been on a regular basis incidence. What might be extra irrefutable rebuttal of much-touted flight security report of US strategic bombers, transport plane and fighter jets?

However, Volodymyr Zelensky reassured his compatriots [2] final week: “Ukraine is already welcoming international volunteers who’re coming to our nation. First ones from 16,000. They’re coming to defend freedom, defend life. For us, for everybody. And will probably be a hit, I’m certain.” Not surprisingly, he didn’t disclose who these hundreds of “daredevil volunteers” prepared to sacrifice lives and limbs in a international struggle had been.

The Instances reported [3] on March 4 that protection contractors had been recruiting former navy veterans for covert operations in Ukraine for a whopping $2,000 a day: “The job will not be with out danger however, at nearly $60,000 a month, the pay is nice. Candidates will need to have a minimum of 5 years of navy expertise in japanese Europe, be expert in reconnaissance, be capable to conduct rescue operations with little to no help and know their manner round Soviet-era weaponry.”

Thus, the Pope’s name to arms to fellow Christians round pious Christendom in protection of the hallowed land of bourgeois democracy and market-oriented values within the face of fierce onslaught by pagan hordes of infidel Ruskies hell bent on desecrating venerable Article 5 of the sanctified transatlantic treaty is extra about getting a lion’s share within the struggle booty slightly than defending the Catholic religion as such. Not surprisingly hundreds of God-fearing and democracy-loving Christians throughout Europe and North America have heeded the Pope’s name to arms to mount the epic Campaign within the Kingdom of Kyivan Rus’.

America and its allies have reportedly pumped [4] over $3 billion in arms into Ukraine for the reason that 2014 Euromaidan coup, and dedicated to ship over $850 million extra in navy support late final month. The Biden administration has already delivered about $240 million of its promised $350 million in further navy tools to Ukraine, with the remainder anticipated to reach within the coming days or perhaps weeks on the newest. As well as, the European Union promised to commit practically 500 million euros for its personal navy support package deal.

Many of the final month’s $850 million navy help package deal was spent on recruiting mercenaries for Ukraine’s proxy struggle and offering 2,000 surface-to-air missiles and antitank Javelins and NLAWs to Ukraine’s safety forces and allied irregular militias, that are nonetheless within the means of being educated for utilizing the subtle navy tools.

The Politico reported [5] at present, March 9, that the Congress’ proposed $1.5 trillion package deal to fund the federal authorities via September would enhance nationwide protection coffers to $782 billion, a few 6 p.c improve. On prime of the hefty funds improve, the package deal was set to ship practically $14 billion in emergency funding to assist Ukraine, practically twice the help package deal initially proposed, together with $3 billion for US forces and $3.5 billion for navy tools to Ukraine, plus greater than $4 billion for US humanitarian efforts.

To be able to create an “worldwide legion” comprising international mercenaries, Kyiv lifted visa necessities for anybody prepared to struggle. “Each buddy of Ukraine who desires to affix Ukraine in defending the nation, please come over,” Zelensky pleaded at a current press convention, including “We offers you weapons.”

Ukraine has already declared martial regulation and a normal mobilization of its populace. These insurance policies embody conscription for males aged 18-60 and the confiscation of civilian automobiles and constructions, whereas Ukrainian convicts with navy expertise are being launched from jail to again up the struggle effort.

In a present of solidarity with Ukraine, a number of European nations not too long ago introduced they’d not solely not criminalize however slightly expedite residents becoming a member of the NATO’s struggle effort in Ukraine, regardless of being conscious of the lamentable destiny of an identical botched coverage of enlisting volunteers for proxy wars in Libya and Syria, notably from diaspora neighborhood of these international locations, who later returned to Europe and carried out a few of the most audacious terror assaults.

The injuries of the Manchester Area bombing at Ariana Grande’s live performance in Could 2017, claiming 22 harmless lives and a whole bunch wounded, by a Libyan expat Salman Abedi, whose brother Hashem Abedi was discovered responsible of twenty-two counts of homicide in March 2020, are nonetheless contemporary within the minds of households of the victims. Who can be accountable after armed and violent “volunteers” having fought within the brutal proxy struggle in Ukraine return dwelling to their native international locations and commit wanton acts of vandalism and terrorism?

The myopic and reckless Western coverage of lending indiscriminate help to militants so as to topple the Arab nationalist authorities of Colonel Gaddafi in Libya and the anti-Zionist authorities of Bashar al-Assad in Syria was instantly answerable for the spate of terror assaults in Europe from 2015 to 2017.

After a lull of just about a decade for the reason that horrific Madrid and London bombings in 2004 and 2005, respectively, when the Western powers determined to coach and arm militant teams in border areas of Turkey and Jordan straddling Syria from 2011 to 2014, the primary incident of terrorism occurred on the Western soil on the workplaces of Charlie Hebdo in January 2015, after which the Islamic State carried out the audacious November 2015 Paris assaults, the March 2016 Brussels bombings, the June 2016 truck-ramming incident in Good, and three ugly terror assaults came about in the UK in 2017, and after that the militant group carried out the Barcelona assault in August 2017.
