control freaks in Washington think that only the decisions
that Washington makes and imposes on other sovereign
countries are democratic. No other country on earth is
capable of making a democratic decision.
The world has witnessed this American self- righteousness
for eons as Washington overthrows one democratic government
after the other and imposes its puppet, as Washington did in
Iran in 1953 when the CIA, as it now admits, and as Ervand
Abrahamian proves in his book The Coup (The New
Press, 2013), overthrew the elected government of Mossadeq,
and more recently the elected government of Honduras and
many governments in between.
Currently Washington is working overtime to overthrow the
governments of Syria, Iran again, and Ukraine. Washington
has also targeted Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Brazil,
and in its wildest dreams the governments of Russia and
On January 26 Syrian government advisor Bouthaina Shaaban
asked Wolf Blitzer, a propagandist for Washington and the
Israel Lobby, on US TV why the US government, speaking
through Secretary of Stare John Kerry, has the right to
decide who is to be the government of Syria instead of the
Syrian people. [Polls show that Syrian president Assad’s
approval ratings exceed those of every Western leader.] Even
the slimy Blitzer wasn’t slimy enough to answer, “because we
are the exceptional, indispensable people.” But that’s what
Washington will soon be back at work on destabilizing the
government of Iran again, a habit I suppose, but for the
moment Washington is focused on destabilizing Ukraine.
Ukraine has a democratically elected government, but
Washington doesn’t like it because Washington didn’t pick
it. The Ukraine or the western part of it is full of
Washington funded NGOs whose purpose is to deliver Ukraine
into the clutches of the EU where US and European banks can
loot the country, as they looted, for example, Latvia, and
simultaneously weaken Russia by stealing a large part of
traditional Russia and converting it into US/NATO military
bases against Russia.
Perhaps Putin, an athlete, is distracted by the Olympic
Games in Russia. Otherwise, it is something of a puzzle why
Russia hasn’t put its nuclear missiles on high alert and
occupied the western Ukraine with troops in order to prevent
Ukraine’s overthrow by Washington’s money. Every country has
citizens that will sell the country out for money, and
western Ukraine is overflowing with such traitors.
As we have seen for decades, Arabs and Muslims will sell out
their people for Western money. So will western Ukrainians.
The NGOs financed by Washington are committed to delivering
Ukraine into Washington’s hands where Ukrainians can become
American serfs and this integral part of Russia can become a
staging ground for the US military.
Of all the violent protests that we have been witnessed to,
the Ukrainian one is the most orchestrated.
On February 6, Zero Hedge, one of the intelligent
and informed Internet sites, posted a leaked recording from
the despicable Victoria Nuland, an Assistant Secretary of
State in the Obama Regime. Nuland is caught discussing with
the US envoy to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt, Washington’s choice
for who heads the next Ukrainian government.
Nuland is incensed that the European Union has not joined
Washington in imposing sanctions on the Ukrainian government
in order to complete Washington’s takeover of Ukraine.
Nuland speaks as if she is God with the God-given right to
select the government of Ukraine, which she proceeds to do.
The EU, as corrupt as it is by Washington’s money,
nevertheless understands being made rich by Washington is no
protection agains Russian nuclear missiles. Nuland’s
response to Europe’s hesitancy to risk its existence for the
benefit of US hegemony is:
“Fuck the EU.”
So much for Washington’s attitude toward its captive allies
and the peoples of the world.
