The West’s Reckless Rush Towards War with Russia

Are we being hasty in our surmising of Putin’s involvement in the MH-17 tragedy? Chris Martenson seems to think so.


via Peak Prosperity:

For reasons that have no rational explanations at this time, the US and Europe have embarked on a concerted program to demonize Putin, ostracize Russia, and bring the world as close to a major conflict as it’s been since the Cold War, a time hardly memorable to many in the current crop of our elected officials.

Within hours of the MH-17 plane crash, the United States pinned the blame on Russia generally, and Putin particularly. The anti-Putin propaganda (and if there were a stronger term I’d use it) has been relentless and almost comically over-the-top (see image above, and those below).

The US and the UK in particular, are leading the charge. Indeed, the UK’s Daily Mail managed to crank out an article on the MH-17 affair within just a few hours on the very same day it occurred with this headline:

The blood on Putin’s hands…

Jul 17, 2014

The world may have averted its gaze towards Israel and Gaza, but this week the rumbling warfare in eastern Ukraine has been erupting into something growing daily more dangerous.

Meanwhile the Russian bear, still pretending to be an innocent party despite blood dripping from its paws, has begun stealthily rebuilding its forces on the border.

Now we may well have witnessed the kind of shocking event that happens when heavy armaments are placed in the hands of untrained and desperate militias.

That’s really an amazing piece of journalism to have managed to have figured out the who, the what and the why of a major catastrophe without the benefit of any evidence or investigation.  One wonders who the author’s source was for obtaining what have become very crisp talking points that both the US and Europe are echoing as they exert increasing pressure on Russia?

Nearly two weeks later, neither the US nor Europe has provided substantial evidence of any sort to support their assertions that Ukrainian separatists and/or Russia are to blame for the MH-17 catastrophe. There’s literally been nothing.

In the meantime, very important questions surrounding the shoot-down have gone entirely unaddressed by US officials and the western media. Why? Perhaps because they raise the possibility that there could be an alternative explanation:

    the kuntery without blood on its hands
    let it launch the first missle of retribution

    a kutery like Duh Homeland
    guilty of genocidal land theft, slavery, the rapist of the 3rd whirled
    is indignant about their doppelganger shadow

      it’s hardly genocide when you only kill 8% of the population with policy

        • It was a proxy genocide. Very clever, actually. The English did the same damn thing to the Scots that they did in N. Ireland plantations: Two groups of impoverished, violent “savages” were causing them problems, so they threw ’em in together, Thunderdome-style. They promised poor Scots-Irish free land in the unsettled frontier areas, knowing they’d fight the natives for it. In reality, it was crap land, all for WASP expansion.
          Now the Natives are all but gone. Now the descendants of those settlers are destitute. Now those WASPs own everything worth anything.
          It was an American Indian Holocaust, but like the European Jewish Holocaust, it had other targets.

          I’m just saying, a very great portion (perhaps 90%) of the Native American population died before it even saw a European.

          • BuzzCoastin | Aug 5, 2014 at 3:28 pm |

            and then
            90% of the remaining 10% were killed off

            This is true. But it’s hard not to be hostile to people who are hostile to you, especially when you can whoop that person’s ass. Doesn’t mean its right, forgive my devil’s advocacy.

    We are likely looking at a legitimate false flag here. In all likelihood the installed government of Ukraine, some of which are fascists and neo nazis, likely did it to further demonize the separatists and to tar Russia in order to secure further military aid from nato.

    • InfvoCuernos | Aug 4, 2014 at 3:23 pm |

      Putin has way more to gain from a war with the west than the west does. I can see this as a double false flag, but more likely, it was simply some drunk ass running the surface to air.

    • ishmael2009 | Aug 4, 2014 at 10:51 pm |

      Glad to see people still haven’t forgotten that the Ukrainian “revolution” (coup) actually meant that a lot of neo-nazi fucks managed to get ministerial positions in the new government. Can’t believe that we’re supposed to side with them. wtf.

      • gustave courbet | Aug 5, 2014 at 1:24 am |

        Following WWII, ‘fascist’ governments became the natural ally of the US in its fight against ‘international communism.’ That same dynamic persists today.

    You have got to love the era of conclusion based inquiry.

  4. Hey, you know, these wars aren’t gonna start themselves . . .
    No war, no Empire. Not complicated.

  5. Lemme ‘splain joo sonting.

    Imperial play book:

    Engineer the collapse of parts of the world that have resources you want so you can force them to exchange those resources for pieces of paper that you print and entirely control.

    Here’s how it’s done:

    Arm and fund a resistance
    Fake an event or stage an assassination
    Tell a completely different story through your propaganda mechanism

    Repeat as needed.
    The fuckers keep doing this shit cuz it keeps working . . .

    Thanks to Gordon over at Rune Soup for breaking it down so neatly.

      the arch archvillian

      (here look even this spellchecker tries to translate the spelling archvillian to Machiavellian)

      the arch always has two
      at least

    the title here is an orthodoxy moron of segregation, right?

    split at the Y?
    cuz damn if they aren’t all equal versions of Putin anyway

    “default” “look in the mirror” “syndrome” “bitches”

  7. Good article but the reason for all this lies(not propaganda, sorry, but bold faced lies) is pretty simple: Russia and China are directly challenging USA control over the world via the dollar. And NOBODY does that and lives. Saddam, Kadaffi tried it and we know what happened to them. Therefore Russia MUST be smashed down to size.
    Of course USA will lie. USA has ALWAYS lied. From the lies about WWI to WWII and Japan to Hiroshima to Vietnam USA has ALWAYS lied. Dont people remember the lies USA said about Saddam’s imaginary “weapons of mass distraction” to Iran’s non existant “nu’lear program” (that they NEVER showed ANY evidence of) ALL USA ever does is lie and lie and lie again. No surprises. The surprises are all the sheeple who still belive the lies. or are they just shill?

    I know Putin is an ex-KGB goon, but the sheer level of propaganda recently against him has been insulting to anyone’s intelligence. Within 6 hours of the plane going down they were already saying they knew Putin was responsible but a month after we’ve still not got any real evidence.
