General Philip Breedlove, NATO's commander in chief, says the West should not rule out arming Ukraine


Nothing good so far has come out of all the high-level meetings in Kiev and Moscow. US-NATO continue to threaten Russia with more and wider war in Ukraine. Russia is basically told they have to accept the US-NATO backed onslaught in eastern Ukraine. Russia must stop supporting eastern self-defense forces or expect even more of the west's Strategy of Tension.

Many critical commentators are saying that the Merkel (Germany) and Hollande (France) duo are running a public relations campaign (approved by Washington) to make it appear that the west is truly interested in peace in Ukraine. In truth NATO has played a vital role in arming and directing Kiev's blitzkrieg against their own citizens near Russia's border.

Speaking to reporters at a security conference in Munich on Saturday, NATO Commander General Breedlove said: "I don't think we should preclude out of hand the possibility of the military option [in Ukraine]."

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has already said the organization's Response Force in Europe may increase to 30,000 troops - more than double the current 13,000 - with the majority to be posted near Russia's borders.

NATO and the US have been arming Kiev's military forces. Russia's ambassador to NATO, Aleksandr Grushko, says "there is a bulk of evidence that Western-made arms are being used in Ukraine," mentioning lethal munitions such as NATO standard artillery shells. He has asked the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) to investigate the claims.

In return Russia has been supplying the self-defense forces in eastern Ukraine with weapons as civilians in that part of the country have been repeatedly targeted for shelling by Kiev's neo-Nazi led military during the past year. Over 5,300 people, mostly civilians, have been killed in this civil war so far.

US-NATO are counting on Russia to continue to defend the beleaguered civilians in eastern Ukraine and intend to use that fact to expand their international campaign to demonize Putin and Russia. The US-NATO endgame is 'regime change' in Russia. The only thing that can come from all this is a wider war and listening to the Republicans who now control Congress in Washington it seems abundantly clear that war with Russia is just what they are pushing for. (Let me be fair and say the Republicans are joined on the Ukraine issue by the vast majority of Democrats. They agree on the overall policy but disagree on the best 'project implementation' strategy.)

Across the west certain NGO's have been funded by George Soros, the National Endowment for Democracy, US AID, and the CIA to serve as shills for the US-NATO war project. These NGO's pose as promoters of non-violence and peace but their real job is to neutralize the peace movement by sowing confusion and doubt. In the end they help build support for the plan to encircle Russia and China. They help corporate capital's plan to take down the remaining 'obstructions' to Full Spectrum Dominance of the global economy and declining planetary resources.
