Obama's New Ukraine: A Russophobic, Failed State Ruled by Fascists

It's clear now that Obama merely used the Geneva agreement to buy time to move troops and military hardware to Poland and the Balkans. It's also clear that Obama invited German Chancellor Angela Merkel to Washington so that it would appear that Europe is united behind the US in its proxy war on Russia. But what does Obama hope to achieve by stirring up this hornet's nest? He knows that Putin cannot afford to back down on Crimea, so what's the point? And, more importantly, what is Ukraine going to look like when Washington is finished using it as a staging-ground for its geopolitical landgrab? Here's an insightful piece by Russian academic, Andrei Fursov, who thinks he knows what Obama wants and explains the impact the policy is going to have on Ukraine for years to come.

"The Americans need controlled chaos and civil war...Moreover, it is clear that this country (post-coup Ukraine) is intended to be absolutely anti-Russian, nationalist, Banderite and neo-Nazi. So the dual goal of establishing this anti-Russian state is to constantly apply pressure on the Russian Federation...

"As Bismarck (said) 'We must cultivate among the Ukrainians, a people whose consciousness is altered to such an extent, that they begin to hate everything Russian.'

"Thus we are talking about a historical psy-op, an information-psychological sabotage, whose purpose is to establish Russophobic Slavs... They are the means to separate Ukraine from Russia and to oppose Russia as a kind ... totalitarian empire. This was all devised under the Galician Project, on which the intelligence services of Austro-Germany and Kaiser German worked, followed by the intelligence service of the Third Reich, later -- CIA and BND...

Banderastan, if that's what Ukraine is fated to become, as designed by the puppet-masters across the ocean, is to be an oligarchic, terroristic, Russophobic state...An oligarchic Banderite...oligarchy is the ideal vehicle for external control. Clearly, this will suit both the oligarchs and the West." (Battleground Ukraine: A Comprehensive Summary, Zero Hedge)

So, there it is: Divide and rule. We saw the Bush administration pull it off with the Shia and Sunnis in Iraq, and now Obama wants to do the same with the Ukrainians and Russians. Same strategy, different continent.

This is Obama's plan for the "New Ukraine" -- a fascist-ruled failed state that follows Washington's directives and puts pressure on Russia thorough endless provocations, belligerence, and war. Ukraine will be Washington's pit bull in the East, separating Moscow from crucial sources of revenue and thwarting efforts at greater EU-Russia economic integration. This is how Washington hopes to insert itself into Eurasia, to improve its prospects in the Great Game, and to establish global hegemony into the next century.

(Note: "Banderite" refers to Stepan Bandera, who was a Ukrainian nationalist leader who collaborated with the Nazis. Bandera headed the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN). According to the World Socialist Web Site: "The Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) carried out numerous massacres of the Polish population in western Ukraine...The UPA served as a military executive organ of the OUN. It was founded in the spring of 1943 and recruited primarily from Nazi collaborators who were previously active in the SS.")
