US Needs Ukraine War to Maintain Global Hegemony

by Mike Whitney, Counterpunch, via Russia-insider:

Washington needs a war in Ukraine to achieve its strategic objectives. This point cannot be overstated.

The US wants to push NATO to Russia’s western border. It wants a land-bridge to Asia to spread US military bases across the continent. It wants to control the pipeline corridors from Russia to Europe to monitor Moscow’s revenues and to ensure that gas continues to be denominated in dollars. And it wants a weaker, unstable Russia that is more prone to regime change, fragmentation and, ultimately, foreign control. These objectives cannot be achieved peacefully, indeed, if the fighting stopped tomorrow, the sanctions would be lifted shortly after, and the Russian economy would begin to recover. How would that benefit Washington?

It wouldn’t. It would undermine Washington’s broader plan to integrate China and Russia into the prevailing economic system, the dollar system.

    The USSA needs war to keep the military industrial complex happy. Without war they are just sitting behind their desks making paper airplanes.

  • Nikolai Azarov, Prime Minister of Ukraine 2010-14.
    (English subtitles – transcript in the youtube comments).

    After a year of silence Nikolai Azarov has given this 34-minute interview.

    Ukraine in 2013 was on the path of stable economic growth with the potential to rival Germany. Its GDP, profits, wages and social welfare were all rising. One year later the trend is the opposite.

    The mechanics of the 2014 coup d´état, the uninvestigated crimes, the lies and censorship, the economic and social consequences are among many topics highlighted by former Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov, who fled for his life after an assassination attempt during the Washington-sponsored coup.

    Azarov has noticed that whenever the Ukrainian economy achieves a positive growth rate, some political turbulence disrupts it. The best years for the Ukrainian economy were:
    2004 – leading to the Orange Revolution;
    2007 – leading to the dissolution of parliament;
    2013 – leading to Nuland’s $5 billion coup d´état.

    In 2007 Zbigniew Brzezinski’s book second chance lays out the plans for this, then we saw their first failed attempt in 2008 and all their work from then till now leading up to this. The Russians said in 2008 that they knew of these plans and were ready, not because of masterful intelligence work but because they read his book 🙂
