Blessed by Noam Chomsky the biggest thinker of our age, Come L'Occidente ha Provocato la Guerra in Ucraina
by Benjamin Abelow is a little but informative book released by Fazi on the current conflict between Ukraine and NATO versus Russia the invader of Ukraine.
Everything started in 1990, when James Baker promised to a loyal Gorbacev that the NATO wouldn't never have searched for an expansionism at East. It happened when the Varsavia Act was over.
Unfortunately we all know what happened: most of the States close to Russia became members of the NATO and the only remaining State left alone was Ukraine. Ukraine has always been the door of Russia in the Western States of Europe for commerce. Putin tried all his best for avoiding also the involvement of Ukraine, with the treats of Minsk, that unfortunately were not respected by Ukrainians. There is in Ukraine a minority of people looking at the Russian Federation for protection: a war started in 2014, and the arrival of Zelenski close friend of the American current president Joe Biden proposed an accelleration to the process of annexation in the NATO and UE of Ukraine.
Lucio Caracciolo had told in 2015 that a probable entrance of Ukraine in the UE and NATO would have been a declaration of war against Russia but that it would have been improbable. Wise men are over. Unfortunately nightmares exist.
Putin lost his patience, but it was the best alibi for the western part of the world for considering the president of Russia someone horrible attacking him passing arms to Ukraine.
The story is different.
What did Putin? He gave trust, when trust didn't exist in the western part of Europe, writes the author and in the USA. NATO didn't respect what Russia would have wanted continuing an expansion at east that was seeing dangerously by Russians: for sure Russians didn't want the annexation of Ukraine in the UE or NATO. So, Putin invaded Ukraine but look, surprisingly there was in act another war long 8 years but not reported by Western medias till at the invasion of Ukraine: also in that case supported by Americans.
Common people didn't know anything of it...
Carlo De Benedetti told in an interview that Europe hadn't to follow Biden in this adventure because we didn't have any interest in this fight against Putin.
Jeffrey Sachs, Columbia University said openly that it was better to make peace with Putin than sending to death all the men of Ukraine. And what for?
It is clear, thanks to the doctrine Monroe 1823 that the USA don't want close competitors. They want to stay safe, but....
In the Western part of the world happened the opposite and we are seeing the conclusions.
It's indispensible an escapism, because a war doesn't have winners and the supposed proposal of the USA, the one of a defenestration of Vladimir Putin for putting there someone close to Boris Eltsin doesn't appear a great choice.
American ambassador in Russia Burns understood through a conversation with eminent russians esponents that they wouldn't have tolerated enemies close to their borders. "Nyet means nyet" they said him.
Russians entered in Georgia because they wanted to let know to the NATO and western part of the world that they wouldn't have tolerated a member of NATO close to their borders.
More or less in 2013, 2014 new agitations wanted by the USA tells Ben started to increase at Maidan, Kiev.
The government collapsed and members of the extreme right took power.
It's a long long time that NATO, writes the author sells guns of offence to Ukraine. With Trump this fact increased tremendously. Plus in Romania there is an important missilistic base that can't make happy Putin.
Other countries as well participated during these years at arming Ukraine and it is surprising how exercitations also in the past involved a possible conflict with Russia.
The arrest of diplomacy started when Biden entered in power and put always more soldiers close to the russian borders. Russia pretended since 1997 the end of mobilitation of troups in Eastern Europe and the promise of never, never permit the entrance of Ukraine in the NATO.
Blinken unfortunately confirmed all the opposite: that Ukraine would have entered in the NATO.
Saints loses patience. Jesus Christ destroyed also the stalls in the temple: you can imagine a politician. Putin wanted to be respected: when he understood that he wasn't respected, he decided to enter in Ukraine.
Let's see, writes the author, if the USA would be protagonist of a stress like the one lived by Russians: potential enemies close to their borders. Missiles put in Mexico direction the USA or in Canada.
No one in the USA, and in the medias, treats the genesis of the arrival of this war and few politicians, considered traitors because of their ideas, admit that this one is a serious problem, confirms the author.
It's impossible to discover in the media the reality of the facts: there is real censorship so that people, viewers, readers understand just what the official mainstream wants to present them: Zelenski is a great guy, Putin is a horrible man. Reality is quiet different and the story more complicated...
False narrations are dangerous, that's why it is important to understand the reality of the facts, insists Ben.
It was sad that per years Americans created a profound hate in the Ukrainian society against Russian population so that any dialogue with Russia was altered because of that bad influences: and it is a real shame that a president, Zelenski, who won very largely the presidential elections didn't try his best for saving his country and his population from the arrival of the Russians, considered that he promised PEACE!!! to his population and could have obtained it.
If let alone, insists Abelow probably now Ukraine would have been a peaceful neutral nation collaborating with Russia.
But, after all, writes Benjamin for the American citizens Ukraine is irrilevant. Most of them don't know anything of this State, and they don't know where it is located: they don't know its history, they haven't met in all their existence an Ukrainian, and, mainly they don't know in which brothel, let me adds, fell Europe because of this war.
Inspiring book that I hope will be largely read by that people who want to have an idea of what it means a war against Russia, using a State like Ukraine.
I thought that Biden would have brought a new season of calm in the world after the turbulent years of Donald Trump, but if, maybe internally, this President for the US citizens hasn't been bad, externally created a mess that we still don't know how to arrest.
It is more than clear that Europe must be again with the USA in this crusade against Russia, when we haven't never perceived Russia like an enemy, but always as a friend in grade of enriching our culture, with its superb representatives in every possible field: sweet, compassionate, tender people who make the difference.
Now world is divided: Russians because of sanctions can't afford anymore in our countries: commerce is interrupted.
Everything for this dirty war.
This one is an enourmous problem that we hope will be resolved pretty soon. If a nuclear bomb will touch the european soil we would be the one effected by radiations: not Americans: Europeans. It happened also with Cernobyl, in 1986 and our land is still radiactive. Every year I prayed for less radiations: now I must think that somewhere someone could one day launch a nuclear weapon in grade to put Europe in a big danger? What will we do then? Americans will open their houses to us, people plenty of radiations for 6 month per year as it happened in our case with the Ukrainian children devastated by radiations?
Is this one the end that Americans want for Europe, a place they love a lot? A radioactive land?
I thank Fazi for the copy of the book.
