Markets sitting idle “yet again today”…..so in other news, and in the brilliant words of our dear friend Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, what you “may not know” about the current situation in Ukraine.
“”The protests in the western Ukraine are organized by the CIA, the US State Department, and by Washington- and EU-financed Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) that work in conjunction with the CIA and State Department. The purpose of the protests is to overturn the decision by the independent government of Ukraine not to join the EU.
The US and EU were initially cooperating in the effort to destroy the independence of Ukraine and make it a subservient entity to the EU government in Brussels. For the EU government, the goal is to expand the EU. For Washington the purposes are to make Ukraine available for looting by US banks and corporations and to bring Ukraine into NATO so that Washington can gain more military bases on Russia’s frontier.””
More from Dr. Paul at his personal blog here.
There are three countries in the world that are in the way of Washington’s hegemony over the world–Russia, China, and Iran. Each of these countries is targeted by Washington for overthrow or for their sovereignty to be degraded by propaganda and US military bases that leave the countries vulnerable to attack, thus coercing them into accepting Washington’s will.
Needless to say….I can’t imagine Russia being too thrilled with the U.S now looking to “set up shop” at the border.
You think there’s a little more going on these days than the SP 500?
Wow….things heating up in the East.
