Washington pines for a new Cold War
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy gave one of the most important speeches of his presidency yesterday, but it was only covered in a Turkish newspaper, and the Wall Street Journal (who buried Zelenskyy's comments under a very different headline).
With tensions so high against Russia concerning the Ukraine situation, why would the American media bury the story?
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in a speech Wednesday underlined that the "hype" around the danger of a Russian invasion has grown rather than the actual threat, as he urged the country to remain calm.
"The risks have not just existed for a day, and they have not become bigger. The only thing that has become bigger is the hype around them," he said.
Addressing his compatriots in the speech, Zelenskyy said: "Now it is not our country that is being actively attacked, but your nerves, so that you have a constant feeling of panic."
The aim is rather to weaken Ukraine's economy so that the Ukrainian "no" vote on certain issues also becomes weaker, Zelensky claimed in the video message and appealed: "To the media: Be methods of mass information and not mass hysteria."
Wow. I wonder why the American news media would ignore this important message?
LMAO. I'm not wondering. We are being lied toward war for the umpteenth time in my life.
Do you remember Max Boot? He's one of the warmongers that got absolutely everything wrong with the invasion of Iraq, and pretty much everything else over the last 20 years.
Yet the MSM still takes him seriously.
That's right. Saying "don't come any closer. I feel threatened" is the exact same thing "going on the attack"...to a bully. Anything other than obsequious submission if unacceptable, when you really want to pick a fight.
Nevertheless, a good bully knows how to spin things in order to make him appear to be a victim.
All the United States wants is to avoid an expanded Russian invasion of Ukraine...That’s a pretty minimal demand, but it might be more than Vladimir Putin is willing to grant. The Russian dictator has not been subtle or secretive about what he wants. He might as well make the national anthem the Beatles’ “Back in the U.S.S.R.”
This is, of course, a complete and total lie. It's easy to identify it as a lie because it's impossible.
His bogus rationale is that NATO’s expansion eastward is a mortal threat to Russia.
Sure. Why would Putin be afraid of the most aggressive and powerful military organization in the world that was created to specifically to control Russia?
