When Assad uses tanks and fighter jets against his people he is “murdering his own people” (The British Government).
Ukrainian armour has been moving towards the rebellious Eastern cities.
John Kerry, the US Secretary of State, is accusing Russia of organising and instigating the popular uprisings in Eastern Ukraine. He is accusing the Russians of undermining the Ukrainian state.
He has not offered a shred of evidence that the uprisings in Eastern Ukraine have been organised by Russia.
NATO General Secretary Anders Fogh Rasmussen has said that he has a message for Russia. It is:
to stop blaming others for your own actions, to stop massing your troops, to stop escalating this crisis and start engaging in a genuine dialogue.
We know what he means by “genuine dialogue”. It means capitulate and agree with us completely in all respects. This is not an interpretation. It is an observable fact. Look what happens when Russia doesn’t go along with the West at the UN. It isn’t accepted as a genuine difference of opinion. They decry it as Russian “obstruction”. This is what happened when Russia would not sign up to yet another war
What is going on here?
Russia has not “invaded” anywhere. Nor acted “aggressively”.
