Patrick J. Buchanan examines the possibility of a U.S.-Russia War over Ukraine

   A U.S.-Russia War Over Ukraine?  :    Information Clearing House - ICH

April 17, 2015 "ICH" - "Could a U.S. response to Russia's action in Ukraine provoke a confrontation that leads to a U.S.-Russia War?"

This jolting question is raised by Graham Allison and Dimitri Simes in the cover article of The National Interest.

The answer the authors give, in "Countdown to War: The Coming U.S. Russia Conflict," is that the odds are shortening on a military collision between the world's largest nuclear powers.

The cockpit of the conflict, should it come, will be Ukraine.

What makes the article timely is the report that Canada will be sending 200 soldiers to western Ukraine to join 800 Americans and 75 Brits on a yearlong assignment to train the Ukrainian army.

And train that army to fight whom? Pro-Russian rebels in Ukraine whom Vladimir Putin has said will not be crushed, even if it requires Russian intervention. Says Putin, "We won't let it happen."

What are the forces that have us "stumbling to war"?

On our side there is President Obama who "enjoys attempting to humiliate Putin" and "repeatedly includes Russia in his list of current scourges alongside the Islamic State and Ebola."

Then there is what TNI editor Jacob Heilbrunn calls the "truculent disposition" that has become the "main driver of Republican foreign policy." A "triumphalist camp," redolent of the "cakewalk war" crowd of Bush II, is ascendant and pushing us toward confrontation.

This American mindset has its mirror image in Moscow.

"Putin is not the hardest of the hard-liners in Russia," write the authors. "Russia's establishment falls into ... a pragmatic camp, which is currently dominant thanks principally to Putin's support, and a hard-line camp" the one Putin adviser calls "the hotheads."

The hotheads believe the way to respond to U.S. encroachments is to invoke the doctrine of Yuri Andropov, "challenge the main enemy," and brandish nuclear weapons to terrify Europe and split NATO.

Russian public opinion is said to be moving toward the hotheads.

Russian bombers have been intruding into NATO air space. Putin says he was ready to put nuclear forces on alert in the Crimea. Russia's ambassador has warned Copenhagen that if its ships join a NATO missile defense force, Denmark could be targeted with nukes.

In coming war games, Russia will move Iskander missiles into the Baltic enclave of Kaliningrad on Poland's northern border.

"Russia is the only country in the world that is realistically capable of turning the United States into radioactive ash," brays the director of the television network Rossiya Segodnya.

As of now, the "pragmatists" represented by Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov retain the upper hand. They believe Russia can still do business with the United States and Europe.

"The 'hotheads' take the opposite view," the authors write, "they argue that NATO is determined to overthrow Putin, force Russia to its knees, and perhaps even dismember the country."

In Ukraine, Putin has drawn two red lines. He will not permit Ukraine to join NATO. He will not allow the rebels to be crushed.

Russia hard-liners are confident that should it come to war in Ukraine, Russia would have what Cold War strategists called "escalation dominance." This is what JFK had in the Cuban missile crisis — conventional and nuclear superiority on sea and land, and in the air around Cuba.

With Ukraine easily accessible to Russian forces by road and rail, sea and air, and Russia's military just over the border while U.S. military might is a continent away, the hard-liners believe Russia would prevail in a war and America would face a choice — accept defeat in Ukraine or escalate to tactical atomic weapons.

The Russians are talking of resorting to such weapons first.

The decisive date for Putin to determine which way Russia will go would appear to be this summer. The authors write:

"Putin will attempt to exploit the expiration of EU sanctions, which are scheduled to expire in July. If that fails, however, and the European Union joins the United States in imposing additional economic sanctions such as excluding Moscow from the SWIFT financial clearing system, Putin would be tempted to respond, not by retreating, but by ending all cooperation with the West, and mobilizing his people against a new and 'apocalyptic' threat to 'Mother Russia.'

"As a leading Russian politician told us, 'We stood all alone against Napoleon and against Hitler.'"

As of now, the Minsk II cease-fire of February seems to be holding. The Ukrainian army and pro-Russian rebels have both moved their heavy weapons back from the truce lines, though there have been clashes and casualties.

But as Ukraine's crisis is unresolved, these questions remain:

Will the U.S. train the Ukrainian army and then greenlight an offensive to retake the rebel-held provinces? Would Russia intervene and rout that army? Would the Americans sit by if their Ukrainian trainees were defeated and more Ukrainian land was lost?

Or would we start up the escalator to a war with Russia that few Europeans, but some Americans and Russians, might welcome today?

Fearing Yemen Defeat, US-Saudis Stack the Deck

    Fearing Yemen Defeat, US-Saudis Stack the Deck:    Information Clearing House - ICH

...For the US-Saudi bombing of the Arab region's weakest country is not going well. Not well at all. Nearly three weeks of constant airstrikes have pounded Yemen into ruins, left hundreds of innocent civilians dead, and turned the country into a humanitarian disaster.

Yet, in spite of all this mayhem inflicted by wave after wave of American-supplied and coordinated warplanes, the supposed military objectives are in tatters.

The Houthi rebels, who kicked out the American and Saudi-backed puppet-regime of Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi earlier this year, have steadily increased their military control over the country since the US-Saudi foreign coalition began bombing Yemen on March 26.

The Houthis are spearheading the popular uprising against the old regime. When Saudi Arabia and the gang of other Arab countries, including Egypt, Jordan and the Persian Gulf monarchies, declared their air strikes on Yemen the assault was said to be aimed at two objectives: crushing the Houthi rebels and driving them back to their tribal base in the northern hinterland; and, secondly, to reinstate the regime of exiled deposed leader Hadi.

The latter is holed up in Saudi capital Riyadh awaiting further instructions from his masters, while being given prestigious platform in the New York Times to write oped pieces whitewashing the slaughter being carried out in his name.

Neither of the US-Arab objectives is remotely near achievable. The Houthis appear to have galvanised even more popular support among the Yemeni population. Ordinary Yemenis have been outraged by what they see as foreign aggression on their country. This broad-based support cuts across tribal and sectarian religious lines, thus disproving Saudi and Western claims that the Houthis are a Shiite proxy serving Iranian regional ambitions.

Saudi Arabia in particular is in a quandary about what to do next. It can't win from an air war alone, despite the massive firepower at its disposal. And the oil-rich kingdom is loath to send in ground troops fearful of how the battle-hardened Houthis could drag the invader into a disastrous guerrilla war. Such an outcome could end up destabilising the House of Saud, beset by its own internal tensions among its restive and oppressed population.

Egypt and the other Gulf Arab dictatorships are talking with bravado about "joint military exercises" being conducted from Saudi territory.

But none of these countries appear bold enough to take on a ground war inside Yemen. Even Pakistan, which earlier had offered military forces for a Saudi-led invasion of Yemen, has lately backed away from that perilous idea.

Washington realises too that its Arab allies are in no shape to take on a land assault. It is reportedly telling the Saudis to focus air strikes on pushing back the rebels from Sanaa, the Yemeni capital, and to forget about the other stated objective of re-installing the Hadi regime — at least in the short-term. The Saudis have even resorted to sending in thousands of al-Qaeda-linked Takfiri brigades relocated from Syria to join up with al-Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula. But the Houthis, joined by remnants of the Yemen Army, have managed to thwart the jihadist mercenaries in the Central and Eastern provinces.

That is why the UN "Insecurity Council" was called upon this week by the Saudis and their Arab allies — no doubt under US tutelage — to impose an arms blockade on Yemen. With support from Washington, the move has nothing to do with seeking an end to violence in Yemen. Far from it. It is rather a desperate attempt to stack the deck in favour of the US-sponsored Arab coalition bombing Yemen.

That coalition is facing an embarrassing defeat in Yemen and needs to accrue an unfair advantage in its futile attempt to bomb the country into submission.

The wording of the resolution not only calls for the disarming of the rebels. It also wants them to surrender territory that they have gained over recent weeks.

Unwilling to invade a hostile territory and unable to win from an aerial blitzkrieg, despite awesome firepower and shocking atrocities against the civilian population, the American-Saudi lynch mob wants the legalistic mechanism of the UN to aid and abet its nefarious purpose in Yemen.

A military commander in Iraq’s Salahuddin province says security forces have driven ISIL terrorists out of Baiji refinery that’s the biggest refinery in the country.
Earlier, Iraqi ground forces entered the refinery, amid heavy clashes with ISIL terrorists who had been surrounding it. The terrorists conducted a large-scale attack on Baiji refinery days ago, briefly taking over a small part of it. The complex, however, has remained under the government control. Meanwhile, the government has sent military reinforcements to Ramadi to block ISIL's advance there. Ramadi is the capital city of the western province of Anbar, and is an ISIL stronghold. Hundreds have fled the city amid heavy fighting.

At least four Saudi soldiers have reportedly been killed and twenty others injured in clashes with Yemeni tribesmen. According to Yemeni media, the fighting happened in Dhahran region, with the number of fatalities expected to rise. There've been reports of rising casualties among Saudi forces stationed near the Yemeni border. Several others lost their lives in Najran province last Friday. Riyadh has deployed more forces and weaponry near the border as its jets continue to bomb targets across the impoverished country. Saudi ground forces have also shelled border regions over the past weeks.

Rouhani strongly condemnes Saudi Arabia’s war on Yemen

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani has strongly condemned Saudi Arabia’s war on Yemen. Rouhani said the attacks on the oppressed people of Yemen have created a grudge among people in regional countries. He warned of the serious repercussions of the Saudi aggression. The Iranian President made the remarks in a speech marking the National Army Day. Rouhani gave assurances that Iran’s military might is a deterrent force and is aimed at establishing peace and security in the region. He also said that Tehran will remain committed to international law over its nuclear energy program.

Following Rouhani’s speech, various units of the army paraded, displaying their latest military hardware and weaponry. Iran’s Bavar-373 air defense system, which is an alternative to Russia’s S-300, was also on display. Iran produced Bavar after Russia failed to fulfill a 2007 contract to deliver the S-300 system. However, Moscow has signaled that it could soon provide Iran with the advanced air defense system.

Former UN envoy to Yemen criticized exclusion of Ansarullah from political transition

Jamal Benomar, who has resigned reportedly under pressure from certain Persian Gulf countries, says it was agreed in the national dialogue conference in 20-13 and 20-14 that the government needed to be more inclusive, but that the government did exactly the contrary and excluded the Ansarullah movement from the process. He said it’s naive to think everything was going well in Yemen and that Ansarullah spoiled the transition. The Moroccan diplomat refused to confirm claims of alleged Iranian support for the Yemeni fighters, saying that he never saw officials from Tehran in Yemen.

Bix Weir says "We The People" Are Now Ready to Fight for JUSTICE

My detractors think I am naive to believe that the Bad Guys can be taken out. They think there are not enough awake and aware people in the United States to force the change. They think that when faced with the difficult choice between Safety and Liberty that the "Sheeple" will simply stay on the couch and let the Bad Guys run the show.

My detractors are wrong.

This week at a California Senate Health Meeting to vote on a bill called SB277 which would REQUIRE all students in Public and Private Schools to be fully vaccinated with all the government mandated child vaccinations, THE PEOPLE SHOWED UP IN MASS TO VOICE THEIR OPPOSITION. (watch the whole 2:24 second video as the emotional impact kicks in around 1:00 when you realize this line does not end...and will not end until we are ALL standing in it!:)

Mothers, Fathers, Children, Doctors, Lawyers, Welders, Teachers, Conscientious Objectors and on and on. These people are "We The People" that are so predominantly referred to in our beloved: Constitution of the United States!

"We The People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

This video gave me the chills, warmed my heart and reminded me that Americans ARE READY to stand up and fight for what we believe is right. WE will NOT stay on the couch when we have a JUST CAUSE.

The next banking crisis is just around the corner and this one will be the Mother of All Crashes. The Bad Guys will come crawling to the US Congress once again for a bailout but this time they will be met on the steps of Congress by WE THE PEOPLE!


May the Road you choose be the Right Road.

Obama: Russia has not implemented Minsk

Russia persists in unlawfully feeding the civilians of Donbass — Ukrainian Border Patrol The Russian Federation does not respond to Ukraine’s complaints to stop illegally supplying Donbass with “the so-called humanitarian aid.” — press secretary Oleg Slobodan on “Channel 12 Ukraine.”

“The Federal Border Guard Service of the Russian Federation stated that this is not within its competence. They do not respond to calls to terminate the humconvoys.” The Ukrainian Border Patrol insists on channeling the humconvoys through official checkpoints.

We note that today the 24th column of humanitarian aid departed the suburbs of Moscow for Donbass. This is only a fraction of the trucks that will be part of the sequence of columns in the Rostov Oblast. As part of the 23rd Russian convoy, there were 1.4 thousand tons of cargo, which went in equal shares to Donetsk and Lugansk.

Notwithstanding that the Ukrainian Border Service (UBS) participates fully in customs clearance of the cargo, in the UBS they assert that they just conduct a visual inspection, but that some of the load is “dangerous cargo:” herbicides, fertilizer, and foaming agents. More than once the Ukrainian Foreign Office has demanded that Russia not send humanitarian convoys to Donbass, calling it “humanitarian contraband.”

Yet many observers, including representatives of western media, state there have been many instances of death from hunger in the zone of conflict, a fact that especially applies in the smaller towns and villages. Source: Rusvesna, 13 April 2015 via Fort Russ, translated by Tom Winters.
