Ukraine war is greatest catastrophe in US history

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I’ve said from the beginning of the Ukraine boondoggle that this war has little to do with Ukraine, and everything to do with America’s desperation to maintain its role as world hegemon. That’s not been a popular perspective these past eleven months, but I get the sense more folks are starting to smell the coffee. Not at the Globe & Mail, though. They’re still in full narrative-management mode at Canada’s newspaper of record. Saturday’s paper featured two of their top pontificators pontificating on the urgency of providing Ukraine with more and better weapons weapons weapons, faster faster faster. Andrew Coyne serves up the stale bullshit of how Ukraine is actually fighting for all of Europe, and indeed, the entire free world! If Ukraine is willing to sacrifice a quarter of its population to save freedom and democracy, the least we can do is send them a quarter of our GDP. In a full page op-ed, he reminds us that Putin is a crazed megalomaniac who wants to resurrect the Russian Empire. His greatest fear has been the existence of a flourishing democracy next door to Russia. Ya, right! Ukraine was once the most prosperous Soviet state. Since the collapse of the USSR, its GDP per capita has fallen to a third of Russia, and that was before the Americans pushed this war on Ukraine. Most of that decline is due to the rapacious corruption of their oligarchs. Most of these guys are on first-name BFF terms with our deputy PM, if you’re wondering where our entirely counter-productive and wantonly reckless Ukraine policy comes from. A few pages later, Konrad Yakabuski offers this eye-grabbing headline; “We need a “Big Bang” approach in Ukraine.” Big Bang? You mean the kind of big bang that just got the Doomsday Clock pushed forward to 90 seconds from Armageddon? This is the kind of lunatic war propaganda served up by our leading media outlets. You’d never know it if you limit your news consumption to CBC and the Globe, but the facts are that Russia is not isolated, more and more global trade is finding its way around the US dollar, and American prestige, credibility, and power are shrinking every day this war goes on.
