In Ukraine, the US is dragging us towards war with Russia

“Washington’s role in Ukraine, and its backing for the regime’s neo-Nazis, has
huge implications for the rest of the world”

“Every year the American historian William Blum publishes his “updated summary
of the record of US foreign policy” which shows that, since 1945, the US has
tried to overthrow more than 50 governments, many of them democratically
elected; grossly interfered in elections in 30 countries; bombed the civilian
populations of 30 countries; used chemical and biological weapons; and attempted
to assassinate foreign leaders.”

“In many cases Britain has been a collaborator. The degree of human suffering,
let alone criminality, is little acknowledged in the west, despite the presence
of the world’s most advanced communications and nominally most free journalism.
That the most numerous victims of terrorism – “our” terrorism – are Muslims, is
unsayable.”
