Ukraine is Not Just a U.S. “Proxy” War

“Defense” against who or what?

Prologue: On September 18, 1947, right after the “Good War,” the U.S. War Department was renamed the Department of Defense [sic].

According to the Department of Defense [sic], as of April 14, 2022, U.S. taxpayer-funded security assistance committed to Ukraine includes:

  • Over 1,400 Stinger anti-aircraft systems

  • 16 Mi-17 helicopters
  • Hundreds of Armored High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles
  • 200 M113 Armored Personnel Carriers
  • Over 7,000 small arms

Here’s an image of U.S. Defense [sic] Secretary Lloyd Austin revealing in a tweet that Ukrainian soldiers were being trained in Biloxi, Mississippi:

What the Department of Defense [sic] neglected to mention is a little something reported here by a French journalist named Georges Malbrunot, on the ground in Ukraine. “I had the surprise to discover that to be able to enter the Ukrainian army, it’s the Americans who are in charge,” said Malbrunot. “I saw it with my own eyes. I thought I was with the international brigades, and I found myself facing the Pentagon.”

Citing a French intelligence source, Malbrunot also tweeted that British SAS units “have been present in Ukraine since the beginning of the war, as were the American Deltas.”

You don’t have to be pro-Putin to point out how much The Land of the Free™ has orchestrated this “war” as part of its new Cold War. Consider how less than a decade ago, the U.S. tried to run a natural gas pipeline from Qatar to Turkey — via Syria, no less! This effort was designed to destroy the Russian economy and it led to a devastating military conflict in Syria, a wave of refugees, and the creation of ISIS.
