The United States and NATO Are Preparing for a Major War With Russia

The Nation has the article The United States and NATO Are Preparing for a Major War With Russia.

Massive military exercises and a troop buildup on NATO’s eastern flank reflect a dangerous new strategy.

Given this beginning of the article, I hardly expected to see the following:

It’s hard to know where to begin when commenting on all this, given the atmosphere of Cold War hysteria. There is, first of all, the question of proportionality: are US and NATO moves on the eastern flank in keeping with the magnitude of the threat posed by Russia? Russian intervention in Crimea and eastern Ukraine is certainly provocative and repugnant, but cannot unequivocally be deemed a direct threat to NATO.

Russia was only acting at the provocation of our overthrowing the government of Ukraine, but everybody is spouting the propaganda that it is Russia’s fault. Who will save us from the two majoe party presidential contenders and from the complicit corporate media? Only a very large vote for Jill Stein/Ajamu Baraka – People, Planet, Peace – can save us from almost certain war started by either one of the two major party candidates.
