UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT ZELENSKY CALLS…
If you've been watching the grizzly - but still farcical - farce of the geopolitical kabuki theater that is the Ukraine playing out, you may have noticed that President Volodymyr Zelensky of the Ukraine is almost as skeptical of Swampington DC as his opposite number in Moscow, Vladimir Putin. Last week, of course, Swampington announced that Russia might invade the Ukraine on the 16th. Russia obliged by pulling some troops back.
Then President Zelensky did the unthinkable: he asked Swampington for proof:
Kiev is not too happy, and is demanding prooffrom US intelligence backing the new dire allegations that Russia is poised to go in:
"There has been too much information about a full-scale war with Russia – even specific dates have been announced. We understand there are risks. If you have any additional information regarding the 100 percent guaranteed invasion of Ukraine by Russia on 16 February, please give it to us," Volodymyr Zelensky told reporters on Saturday.
Naturally, Ukraine's leaders are trying to calm the panic which Washington pronouncements and the Western media echo chamber have created...
Zelensky said he did not believe in the danger of a full-scale war at the moment. “I have to speak to the public with real information at hand. We receive information from many sources. We also have an intelligence service. I don’t think that it’s any worse than the intelligence services of other countries,” he noted.
"We have intelligence services too, and it's as good as yours, America, and they're not telling us the same thing you are... so what's your evidence?" It doesn't get much more clear than that, and the implication is that the Ukraine knows it is being used as a cat's paw to stir up trouble and perhaps even provoke a war with Russia, a war the USA has already signaled it will not engage in, save to impose "sanctions" on Russia.
As if this madness is not enough, President Zelensky has apparently called Swampington's bluff:
Zelensky is playing hardball, and it isn't with Moscow:
President Zelenskyy emphasized the geopolitical farce when he said to the world if the United States, and as an extension NATO, is so certain that Russia is about to invade and destroy Ukraine sovereignty, then why are they waiting to trigger deterrent sanctions?
Bingo. It cannot be put more clearly than that.
So then, what is this kabuki theater all about?
I strongly suspect it has little to nothing to do with Russia or the Ukraine, and everything to do with the crumbling narratives in the west, from Covid to cyrpto-currencies, to the failure-ridden Brandonenko regime, the fiasco of Trudeau's tyranny, the financial mess of the West, and so on. A war would be a nice distraction, and a cover under which Mr. Globaloney could impose even more tyrannies on the West. So Swampington is inviting war, but no one else has answered the invitation, except maybe (of course) perfide Albion.
Mr. Zelensky certainly appears not to be playing the game. "Come on over, Brandon, and see for yourself..." A worthy effort on Mr. Zelensky's part, even if it does imply the opposite of the truth, and that Brandon would even be mentally fit enough to realize what he was seeing.
So here's a suggestion to the concerned parties: join the growing global chorus of "Let's go Brandon!" and ignore Swampington DC and Brandonenko. Ignoring the trouble-maker in the neighborhood will probably pave the way for some real negotiations among adults. Think of the implications: it will show the world things can get done without Swampington's involvement, and that's a lesson that will play well not only in Moscow, Kiev, Warsaw, Bucharest and Berlin, but Tallahassee, Austin, Lincoln, Des Moines...
See you on the flip side...
(As I wrote this prior to the Russian recognition and occupation of Donetsk and Lugansk, it is a bit dated... but nonetheless, I don't think the major premise is weakened: negotiate, and leave Swampington out of it, and recognize it's being use to distract from other policy failures...
