Mark Twain once said history doesn’t repeat itself, but it does rhyme and that’s as good a description as any for the cluster-fuck playing out in Ukraine.
The same Western governments that can’t manage their own affairs are seemingly determined to export their brand of incompetence, and their latest project is spreading failure in Ukraine.
U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs Victoria Nuland and U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt, helped fund “a regime change” in the country, but they somehow didn’t realize the opposition would be taken over by Neo-Nazi militias.
I guess they also didn’t realize Russia might have a teeny little problem with being encircled by NATO, but hey, it’s not like Russia hasn’t proven time and time again over the last thousand years that unlike a Wop, she never brings a knife to a gun fight.
Even as this crisis plays out, I’m sure our governments have moronic contingency plans to provoke the next one. I’ve got my money on them fast-tracking full NATO membership for the country of Georgia so they can threaten Russia from the beautiful port of Batumi.
And since Russia already fought a quick war there in 2008, I’m sure next time will be totally different.
On a side note, I just saw a study from The National Science Foundation that found one in four Americans, and a whopping 51% percent of self-identified Democrats, didn’t realize the earth revolves around the sun.
While that may be fine for a medieval Pope, I’m a hell of a lot more concerned about that than I am with the government of a bunch of Cossacks on the southern steppe.
