The NATO-backed Atlantic Council has proposed apartheid Israel as a blueprint for a hyper-militarized Ukraine. The paper was authored by former President Barack Obama’s ambassador to Tel Aviv, now an Israeli spy-tech consultant, reports Alex Rubinstein.
The Russian “special military operation” in Ukraine has reached its 90th day and the Western press continues to be inundated with unverified claims of war crimes Russian forces allegedly have committed. However, reported Ukrainian military shelling that has killed more than 14,000 people since 2014 in the breakaway region of Donbass has received little media attention. TF contributor Fergie Chambers reports on the latest he found in the city of Donetsk, where attacks on civilians continue.
Since Russia began what they call the “special operation” on February 24 in Ukraine, the corporate media has reported the Ukrainian population is united in resistance against the Russian military offensive. However, beneath this façade of chest-beating patriotism lies an anti-war movement, reports Fergie Chambers.
More than 359,000 Ukrainians of the 3.38 million who have fled Ukraine since February 24 have passed in and out of Moldova. Many spoke ill of President Volodymyr Zelensky's government, reports Fergie Chambers.
While Western media deploys Volodymyr Zelensky’s Jewish heritage to refute accusations of Nazi influence in Ukraine, the president has ceded to neo-Nazi forces and now depends on them as frontline fighters, report Alexander Rubinstein and Max Blumenthal.
The accelerated drive to militarization and war by the United States and its allies that is dramatically unfolding with the crisis in Ukraine might very easily escalate to the point that it could threaten global humanity. In their mad drive to advance their geostrategic interests to the detriment of everyone else—the Democratic Party version of “America First”—the Biden administration willfully violates all of the core principles of international relations and law, says Ajamu Baraka.
