Col. Lawrence Wilkerson: How to Avoid War Over Ukraine

Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, speaking with Chris Hayes on MSNBC this week, details steps the United States government can take to avoid war over Ukraine. Wilkerson suggests:
Ukraine needs to be a buffer state between what is now an alliance that Russia hates -- NATO -- and a country that NATO has a problem with -- Russia… Crimea needs to be exactly where it is -- with Russia where it has been for over 350 years. And we need to stop the passionate statements and get down to business and work this out. We don’t need a war.

Foiled in Crimea, Is Obama Eyeing Syria Strike?

There is danger in making dramatic but idle threats. President Obama and his administration have been given to extremely muscular rhetoric to warn adversaries away from certain actions only to back down when their warnings are not heeded.

The neocons pounce on such unwise habits, attempting to trap the administration by its own rhetoric into fulfilling its wildest threats. It is a lose-lose with the administration but for some reason they keep it up.

Ron Paul: Crimea Secedes. So What?

RPI Chairman Ron Paul has an op-ed in Tuesday's USA Today wondering why the US is so eager to saddle up for war over a relatively insignificant piece of land thousands of miles away. Dr. Paul is thankful that the bonds of international trade are tempering the passions of the US neocons and warhawks.

Judge Napolitano: Congress and CIA Relationship at 'Turning Point'

Speaking with Neil Cavuto on Fox Business, Judge Andrew Napolitano predicts that Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) strong reaction to Central Intelligence Agency snooping on the Senate Intelligence Committee she chairs “is a turning point in the relationship between the CIA and the United States Congress.”

This change of heart of “the biggest cheerleader, the strongest supporter, and arguably the most powerful member of Congress in support of the intelligence community,” says RPI Advisory Board Member Napolitano, puts Feinstein on a “collision course” with CIA Director John O. Brennan.

Russia Gets it Wrong

The Russian Foreign Ministry is barking up the wrong tree. Concerned over reports that the US government plans to begin shipping billions of dollars to prop up the government in Ukraine it helped install by coup d'etat, the Russians believe they found the best argument to dissuade the US from such a move: US law.

The Russians cite section 22 paragraph 8422 of the US law code, which "restricts assistance to the government of any country whose duly elected head of government is deposed by military coup or decree."

Geoffrey Pyatt: The Outlaw as Sheriff

Geoffrey Pyatt is an outlaw. The US Ambassador to Ukraine was caught on tape conspiring with Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland to overthrow the government in Kiev and install leaders of US choosing.

Shortly afterward, after plenty of blood flowed through the streets of Kiev, the smoke cleared and the government had been overthrown in just the manner these two had planned.

Was this an interference in the sovereignty of Ukraine? Of course it was, by definition, as was the millions of dollars funneled through USAID and other US pseudo-NGOs which created a fifth column of revolutionaries in Ukraine.

Did Russia Invade Crimea?

Unlike the impetuous and immature US leaders with itchy trigger fingers and an agenda of expansion that I do not have, I’ve been waiting to find out whether or not Russia invaded Crimea. We cannot know this with more certainty without learning more about the deal between Crimea and Russia, the back and forth between their governments, the view that Russia holds regarding the Kiev interim government, and the identities of the armed forces now in Crimea and also their relationships (are they fighting? killing? wounding?). Russia has leased bases in Crimea and does already have a right to a substantial armed force there.

This CNN article is helpful, and we get two conflicting views between Ukraine and Russia.

As far as I can tell right now, the following are factual.

Dennis Kucinich and Lawrence Wilkerson Expose US Role in Creating Ukraine Crisis

Breaking through the mainstream media’s suppression of contrary voices regarding the Ukraine crisis, RPI advisors Dennis Kucinich and Lawrence Wilkerson this week expose, on Fox News and MSNBC respectively, the United States government’s role in creating the crisis.

Kucinich, who served eight terms in the United States House of Representatives and ran for president as a Democrat, pushes past host Bill O’Reilly’s interruptions to state a few sentences of analysis
