Over the past few days, a high ranking military man from a large nation said this about another large nation while complaining about its alleged expansion:
(It)…”has made the conscious decision to use its military force inside of another sovereign nation to achieve its objectives.”
If you are thinking that it might be a military leader from Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Sudan or Vietnam talking about the United States then you are a normal, well-adjusted human being but you would be wrong. No, the person responsible for this quote is U.S. Army General Martin Dempsey talking about Russias’ involvement in the Ukraine. As unbelievable as it sounds in the face of decades of U.S. military deployment and war-mongering around the world, this is the official U.S. position and one that is intended to ‘rally the world’ towards the isolation of Russia.
Of course this is not the only hypocritical statement to issue forth from the ‘bastion of freedom’ about Russia or the Russian speaking people of the Ukraine but it is the latest and most blatant. I suppose General Dempsey is doing his job and just following the state departments’ Ms. Marie Harf when she tells the world that Russia is firing artillery shells into the Ukraine or that Russian speaking Ukrainians brought down a passenger aircraft from thirty or forty thousand feet, all without displaying a shred of evidence. Indeed the U.S. has told the world that all of this is true based on posts in social media and by the use of good-old American common sense…
For centuries there have been efforts to create gold by combining several lesser elements in a myriad of recipes and all have failed. One would think that those in possession of good-old American common sense would recognize the futility of using alchemy to construct their golden foreign policy objectives. Alas, just like the evidence of Russian aggression, evidence that anyone within the U.S. is normal and well adjusted is being suppressed.
