Slow, Steady Progress by Russia v. the Empire of Lies

Stephen Lendman

Here’s interventionist Blinken’s recitation of rubbish last week, vomiting one debunked Big Lie after another, saying: “(W)e worked very hard to try to keep (things) on a diplomatic track (and) dialogue (sic).” “Russia…reject(ed) diplomacy and dialogue and pursue(d) aggression (sic).”

Fact: For nearly 8 years, Russia went all-out diplomatically to halt US-orchestrated and directed aggression by Nazified Ukraine against Donbass — to no avail. It begs the question. Why didn’t Russia conclude sooner that pursuing diplomacy with US-dominated NATO and Kiev was a colossal waste of time? It achieved nothing positive since the Obama/Biden regime’s 2014 coup, replacing democratic rule in Ukraine with Nazified tyranny.

Fact: Russia intervened against Ukraine in response to pleas for help from the leadership of Donestk and Lugansk for military help against Kiev’s aggression.

Fact: Article 51 of the UN Charter affirms the right of self-defense for all nations under attack.

Fact: Russia responded militarily because years of its good faith diplomatic efforts were consistently rebuffed by hegemon USA, its NATO vassal states and colonized Ukraine.

Fact: Aggression is longstanding US policy. Its history from inception reflects it.

Fact: Countless millions of corpses attest to its ruthlessness.

Fact: From inception, the Russian Federation never engaged in unjustifiable use of force against another nation, never breached international law, treaties or agreements — never preemptively attacked another nation in breach of the UN Charter.

Fact: Hegemon USA is guilty as charged on all of the above counts multiple times over. The same reality applies to NATO, a US-controlled alliance for war-making, pretending to be for collective defense.

Blinken: The Biden regime is “leading provider of humanitarian assistance to Ukrainians (sic).”

Fact: It’s largely or entirely in the form of weapons, munitions and related equipment for perpetual war-making.

Blinken: US-installed pupped Zelensky is “extraordinary and his leadership is both inspiring and genuinely heroic (sic) because he’s remained right in harm’s way leading his people (sic).”

Fact: Zelensky serves at the discretion of his US master, a caricature of leadership far removed from the real thing.

Fact: Early in the conflict, he was secretly transported cross-border to Poland, as explained in a previous article.

Fact: “Heroic” Zelensky is a first-class coward, a liar and servant of US imperial interests against Russia.

Blinken: The Biden regime is “trying to end this war as quickly as possible (sic).”

Fact: For nearly 8 years, bipartisan US policy has been and continues to be pursing perpetual war along Russia’s borders with no end of it sought.

Fact: Hegemon USA is willing to wage it to the last Ukrainian.

Fact: Restoration of peace in central Europe is considered an anathema notion in Washington.

Fact: Its dominant hardliners continue going all-out to prevent it.

Fact: They aim to bog Russia down in Ukraine in similar fashion to US support for Afghan mujahideen fighters against Soviet Russia in the 1980s. Blinken recited a further litany of bald-faced Big Lies about Russia — his customary modus operandi against all nations free from US control. Since begun, Russia’s demilitarization and de-Nazification campaign has been proceeding as planned. It’s slow-going in cities like Kharkov and Mariupol because Nazified Ukrainian battalions are embedded in civilian neighborhoods. They’re in schools, hospitals, private residences and elsewhere behind Ukrainians and foreign nationals — involuntarily held as human shields.

Despite multiple rounds of conflict resolution talks between Russian and Ukrainian negotiators, little was accomplished because hegemon USA wants war, not peace. Over the weekend from his hideout in Poland, Zelensky recited what Biden regime hardliners ordered him to say. He won’t “compromise.” He won’t renounce Kiev’s aim to regain control over the Russian Republic of Crimea or Donbass. He won’t permit regime negotiators to engage with Russia in good faith talks as long as his US master rejects the notion.

On Saturday, Sergey Lavrov said the following: Russia’s legitimate demands are ”absolutely minimal.” Ukrainian negotiators are “being held by (hegemon USA’s) hand,” preventing progress in talks that are going nowhere.

Why does Russia pursue them — knowing that the only language US-dominated NATO and colonized Ukraine know is force? Since conflict began nearly a month ago, the US-dominated West won the information war in their own countries. At the same time, they lost it overwhelmingly in Russia. The vast majority in the country support Vladimir Putin. His approval rating exceeds 70% — in stark contrast to dementia Joe’s double at below 40%.

Quinnipiac poll results published on March 16 showed the following: 39% of respondents alone approve of the Biden regime’s foreign policy. One-third alone (34%) approve of the regime’s economic policies. The fake Biden’s overall approval rating was a negative 38%. Polling was conducted from March 10 – 14, 1,936 US adults surveyed nationwide.

Separately on Sunday, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Gen. Igor Konashenkov explained the following:

“Russian army units are completing the defeat of Kiev’s (Nazi-infested) Donbass nationalist battalion.” “During the day, Russian troops advance 12 kilometers to reach Nikolskoye and jointly with units of the Donetsk People’s Republic blocked the settlement of Sladkoye from three sides.” On Sunday alone, “Russia’s tactical aviation hit 89 military facilities in Ukraine, including four control centers, two multiple missile launcher systems, nine artillery systems, five weapons and munitions depots, and 65 places of military vehicles’ deployment.”

Ukraine’s US/Western supported war machine is being systematically smashed. Since the beginning of the special military operation, Russian forces destroyed 214 unmanned aerial vehicles, 1,483 tanks and other armored vehicles, 150 multiple missile launcher systems, 584 artillery systems and mortars, and 1,279 special combat cars. Through Sunday, around 350,000 Ukrainians were evacuated safely to Russia.

Obama and Merkel: As Guilty as Anyone in Kiev

A Final Comment

Photos of Zelensky after assuming office in May 2019 showed attired in suit and tie — clean-shaven. Images now show wearing a khaki green t-shirt — unshaven to create the illusion of rough and ready leadership. By video link from Poland, he addressed US congressional and UK parliamentary members this way.

Last week, dozens of current and former EU officials asked the pro-Western Nobel Committee to extend the Peace Prize nomination deadline, a disgraceful open letter saying the following: “We believe that now is the time to show the people of Ukraine that the world is on their side.” “We therefore humbly call upon you, the Committee, to consider:”

“Extending and thereby re-opening the nomination procedure for the Nobel Peace Prize until March 31, 2022 to allow for a Nobel Peace Prize nomination for President Zelensky and the people of Ukraine.” Longstanding procedure calls for nominations to be submitted “no later than January 31.”

Procedure aside, if Zelensky is nominated for the peace prize, he’ll join the ranks earlier war criminal nominees — including Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin. If awarded the prize, he’ll be the latest in a long line of war criminals to disgrace the principle of what it’s supposed to signify. They include: Henry Kissinger, Shimon Peres, Yitzhak Rabin, Menachem Begin, FW de Klerk, and Al Gore.

Disgraced honorees also included: The Dalai Lama, a covert CIA asset. Kofi Annan, a reliable imperial war supporter. UN Peacekeeping (paramilitary) Forces involved in more conflicts than they resolved. Elie Wiesel, a hawkish Islamophobe. Norman Borlaug, whose “green revolution” wheat strains killed millions. Medecins Sans Frontières, co-founded by rabid war hawk Bernard Kouchner. Woodrow Wilson who broke his pledge to keep “us out of” WW I. Jimmy Carter who backed an array of tyrants and drew the Soviets into its Afghan quagmire that took a million or more lives. George C. Marshall, instrumental in creating NATO’s war machine and waging war against nonbelligerent, nonthreatening North Korea. Theodore Roosevelt who notoriously said: “I should welcome almost any war, for I think this country needs one.” Notorious narco-terrorist Juan Manuel Santos. Barack Obama, another unindicted US war criminal multiple times over. Notably, he bragged about terror-bombing 7 nonbelligerent, nonthreatening countries.
