From Détente with the Soviet Union under Reagan and Gorbachev to Open Confrontation with Russia over Ukraine and Syria – Washington’s Russia Policy under Donald Trump is the same as it was under Barack Obama.

Someone has coined a term to describe Washington’s bellicose foreign policy attitude towards Russia. Ever since World War II and increasingly under the last four American Presidents, the United States has looked upon Russia with an equal measure of fear and disdain. The word that best describes Washington’s attitude is “triumphalism”…

Lies, More Lies, and Continued Political Doubletalk about Ukraine

Posted by Scott Rohter on Saturday, August 30, 2014

Russia isn’t the only country that is lying about its involvement in Ukraine. The United States is lying too, and so is the European Union. No one is telling the truth about what is really going on over there and why. The real reason that America is so interested in Ukraine has more to do with the price of oil and natural gas than it has to do with democracy…

It all started with a little lie, but that was so long ago that it really doesn’t matter… or does it? What matters of course in Ukraine today is that the residents of Crimea just held a public referendum on the question of whether or not they want to become a part of Russia again after a popular uprising in Kiev overthrew their democratically elected government and left most Crimeans feeling like they were out in the cold. What is the connection between the popular Orange Revolution in Ukraine and the fracking revolution right here in America?

Of course that doesn’t seem to matter to the people of Ukraine, nor to the European Union, nor to the United States of America which only wants to capitalize on the political turmoil and seize the opportunity to export American natural gas derived from fracking to Europe in order to increase demand and drive up prices here at home…
