Americans are still disinterested in Ukraine (and rightly so)
April 21, 2014 § Leave a comment
According to every major poll, Americans are not interested in meddling in Europe and can’t locate Europe, much less Ukraine, on a map. No one with a clear mind understands why the government is so interested in this conflict, considering no one has threatened America, they aren’t a threat to any national security or the Constitution, and impose no effect on internal politics. In contrast, if the guys who pull the strings (more on that later) decide to inject themselves in the conflict, their actions threaten America, the national security and violate the Constitution. As a libertarian, I hate using collective terms when referring to the country but I will today: intervening in Ukraine is not in our, that is, the regular Joe, interest. It is clearly in whoever is controlling the executive branch’s interest and clearly President Obama isn’t calling the shots. They have no interests in the public welfare (there I go again); they only have interests in furthering themselves and their globalist agenda.
This forces me to ask the question: who are they representing? Who are the beneficiaries? Who is out on the streets, in front of D.C. with picket signs, pushing government officials to intervene in Ukraine? How come they are so responsive to some situations and relaxed on others?
CNN keeps informing me of a so-called crisis—crisis to whom? Danger to whom? I’m not sure but they keep repeating it. Are they trying to convince me this is a crisis to my safety? How? Even worse, Wolf Blitzer warned me of the “militants” in the capital. Before, the US-backed people who overthrew the government were mere “protestors” who were upset but now as Ukrainians fight to free their country from the US-NATO grasps and to kick out the coup-installed President Turchynov, they are “militants.”
What a change of events, Blitzer!
Words are meaningless.
Why is CNN so concerned with alleged undercover masked men, protestors, who are a part of the protestors? Is this an indictment on Putin? How many CIA men and women are in Ukraine (and around the world)? How many millions dollars’ worth of weapons and loans has Obama given to Ukraine (and other countries) specifically for the overthrow of the democratically elected president?
Lastly, what of us, those of us who were involved in the Occupy Movement? Any American attempting to change their own government is pepper sprayed, abducted and beaten. Our Rulers must think we are idiots to believe they are interested in democracy and change; the only change they advocate is the overthrow of foreign leaders who dare question American hegemony.
I leave with the questions of Walter Block:
How would people in the United States feel if Vladimir Putin issued a warning against the BLM for violating the homesteading rights of Cliven Bundy? How would people in the United States feel if Vladimir Putin boycotted Nevada Senator Harry Reid for castigating as ‘terrorists’ those who rose to the defense of Cliven Bundy? How would people in the United States feel if Vladimir Putin placed a few Russian warships off the coast of California in case their help was needed in defending Cliven Bundy’s land rights? How would people in the United States feel if Vladimir Putin froze Barack Obama’s financial resources in Russia? How would people in the United States feel if Vladimir Putin shipped a few hundred head of cattle to Cliven Bundy to make up for those destroyed by the BLM? How would people in the United States feel if Vladimir Putin threatened to go to war with the U.S. over its miserable treatment of Cliven Bundy? How would people in the United States feel if Vladimir Putin actually landed Russian troops in Canada or Mexico in order the ‘send a message’ to Americans? How would people in the United States feel if Vladimir Putin set himself up as the protector of the tortoise, many of which have been killed by the BLM?
