In mid-April US airlift planes flew into western Ukraine delivering military hardware and soon thereafter hundreds of US Army "trainers" made the same journey followed by Canadian and other NATO troops.

This military "capacity building" near the Russian border illustrates the game of hardball that Washington and Brussels are playing. They are putting a loaded gun to Putin's head - the threat is being made to either submit or face expanded war and chaos similar to what the US-NATO have already unleashed in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, and beyond. The US corporate oligarchy thought they had Moscow safely in the bag back in the early 1990's. Washington does not like to be denied and thus is willing to face a nuclear war with Russia in order to finish the job of corporate consolidation. Sadly citizens in the US lack a clear understanding of the present situation.

Not all of NATO is following the script, recently a Czech reserve unit issued the following statement: "We, the Czechoslovak soldiers in reserve, unanimously reject any participation in battles that are geopolitical acts of aggression of the global elite by way of NATO and the support of our governments."

Last weekend more than 5,000 brave citizens in Kiev protested against the US-backed regime's crackdown on political leaders and journalists -- many of them killed in the past month. Organizers of the protest were reportedly arrested following the march.

The US-NATO proxy war in Ukraine is a 'trigger' for a full-scale war with Russia. In the past the peace movement has supported self-defense forces in places like El Salvador and Nicaragua. We should be doing the same today in eastern Ukraine.

Russia has the world's largest supply of natural gas" and due to climate change the Arctic ice is melting giving the oil industry the ability to 'drill-baby-drill' in that region. Russia has the largest land border with the Arctic. It's clear that the job of the Pentagon is to serve as the primary resource extraction service for corporate capitalism.

Thank you.
