    Nation and State ^ | 12/26/2021 | Tyler Durden
    For weeks Kiev officials and many corners of Western media and the Washington national security establishment have hyped the Russian troop build-up in regions of Russia that are within 400km of Ukraine's border, accusing the Kremlin of planning an invasion of Donbass sometime in January. This month started, for example, with The Washington Post citing US intelligence to claim this would involve a whopping 175,000 Russian troops mustered near the border. But like with prior similar instances (such as failed predictions last spring that never materialized), it's looking like the opposite is set to happen, with on Saturday Reuters reporting...

    President Biden on Wednesday said the United States is not considering sending troops to Ukraine amid rising fears about the possibility of a Russian military invasion. “That is not on the table,” Biden told reporters at the White House before departing for a trip to Kansas City, Mo. “We have a moral obligation and a legal obligation to our NATO allies if they were to attack under Article 5, it’s a sacred obligation. That obligation does not extend to … Ukraine,” he added.

    The Ukrainian president called on Vladimir Putin to publicly deny that he was preparing an invasion yesterday, saying Russia was sending “very dangerous signals”. President Zelensky, 43, also made the extraordinary claim that he believed a coup attempt was being planned for December 1 in Ukraine, with the involvement of Russian citizens and the country’s richest man. The remarks came amid continuing concerns in the West over the alleged build-up of almost 100,000 Russian troops on Ukraine’s borders. Moscow warned that suggestions of an invasion plan were “a provocation”. President Zelensky told journalists in Kiev: “We believe that very dangerous...

    At the end of September 1945, the world breathed a sigh of relief as the death and destruction of the war finally and formally came to an end. When the dust settled, as many as 85 million souls had been laid to rest, mostly civilians, and a New World Order had been formed by the allied powers, destined to control the trajectory of geopolitics to the present day. Of the millions lost, America escaped the least bloodied, with estimated total casualties recorded to be 419,400. These were dads, moms, sons, and daughters, their lives all cut short by the violence...
