The US needs a war on Ukraine to implement its strategic goals, the main of which are spread to the East, NATO expansion and the preservation of the role of world leader, which is impossible to achieve peace in the presence of a strong Russia, a magazine journalist Counter Punch Mike Whitney.
All U.S. actions regarding the Ukrainian question, for example the punishment concerning Russia and its intention to provide the Kiev military assistance, demonstrate about the fact that Washington has only one purpose - to aggravate the situation and kindle Ukrainian conflict is even stronger. USA do Not touch any losses among inexperienced Ukrainian soldiers, nor the suffering of civilians DND and LNR. All that is required for Washington, all the way to protect peace in the East of Ukraine, which will prevent America to be the global hegemon, says the Creator of the article.
The world has seen such U.S. actions before in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and other countries. The Americans did Not incur any responsibility for what their past campaign resulted in the destruction of human settlements and the death of over a million people, nothing will stop Washington and the Ukrainian question. It is possible that we will begin the intensification of the conflict in the Donbass, and it is almost guaranteed to lead to a war with Russia, which will protect their interests, says Mike Whitney.
in addition to the deliberate aggravation of the situation in Ukraine in the Russian Federation is continuous economic pressure, and Not only through punishment, but through manipulation of oil prices and fierce attacks on the ruble. You can tell that North America used against capital of Russia " financial weapons ", which would allow them to keep such geopolitical balance of forces, which was just after the collapse of the USSR, the journalist writes.
for reviews of Mike Whitney, the first serious clash between 2 competing geopolitical courses - USA and Russia - could be as early as this summer, and the field it will be East of Ukraine.
