The Rape Of Ukraine: Phase Two Begins


This article comes from

By F. William Engdahl

An legitimately-elected (said by all international monitors) Ukrainian President, Viktor Yanukovich, has been driven from office, forced to flee as a war criminal after more than three months of violent protest and terrorist killings by so-called opposition. His “crime” according to protest leaders was that he rejected an EU offer of a vaguely-defined associate EU membership that offered little to Ukraine in favor of a concrete deal with Russia that gave immediate €15 billion debt relief and a huge reduction in Russian gas import prices. Washington at that point went into high gear and the result today is catastrophe.

A secretive neo-nazi military organization reported linked to NATO played a decisive role in targeted sniper attacks and violence that led to the collapse of the elected government.

But the West is not finished with destroying Ukraine. Now comes the IMF with severe conditionalities as prerequisite to any Western financial help.

After the famous leaked phone call of US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland (photo, left) with the US Ambassador in Kiev, where she discussed the details of who she wanted in a new coalition government in Kiev, and where she rejected the EU solutions with her “Fuck the EU” comment,[1] the EU went it alone. Germany’s Foreign Minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier proposed that he and his French counterpart, Laurent Fabius, fly to Kiev and try to reach a resolution of the violence before escalation. Polish Foreign Minister, Radoslaw Sikorski was asked to join. The talks in Kiev included the EU delegation, Yanukovich, the three opposition leaders and a Russian representative. The USA was not invited.[2]

The EU intervention without Washington was extraordinary and reveals the deeping division between the two in recent months. In effect it was the EU saying to the US State Department, “F*** the US,” we will end this ourselves.

After hard talks, all major parties including the majority of protesters, agreed to new presidential elections in December, return to the 2004 Constitution and release of Julia Tymoshenko from prison. The compromise appeared to end the months long chaos and give a way out for all major players.

The diplomatic compromise lasted less than twelve hours. Then all hell broke loose.

  1. “The Rape of the Ukraine”

    Number 1, 2, or ? But whose counting.

    The Ukrainian Genocide of 1932-1933 cost upwards of 5,000,000 plus
    human beings. But then it was not a “Genocide” and it was not
    “man-made” according to some “authorities”. Murder by starvation
    –one of the more “pleasant” ways to die.

    This was a famine in a county that was known as the “Bread Basket
    of Europe” during Czarist times.

    And there was no accounting for those who were overseeing the famine
    under Communist Joseph Stalin: Vyacheslav Molotov, Lazar Kaganovich,
    and others. –There was no accounting in “this world” for the named
    three, since they all lived to a ripe old age.

    When it is all settled the crocodile tears in the U.S. and the rest
    of the world will not be any account to the Ukrainians who are holding
    the short end of the stick like they did in 1932-1933.

  2. P.S.:
    I see where Obama is warning Russia’s Putin.

    Maybe Obama should read Kipling’s, “Charge of the Light Brigade”,
    and give a little more thought about charging in. But the usual
    neocons, etc. think that Obama is too weak in warning the Russians
    of the big, bad Americans, as we push for more wars.

    But maybe the Americans should charge into the Crimea, etc. and
    learn what it is like to fight a first-rate military power rather
    than some tenth-rate military powers. We might find out that there
    is a “slight” difference.

    –What in the heck are we doing in the Ukraine. Are we nuts.

  3. P.S.:
    One must remember that Vladimir Putin’s “colleges” in the N.K.V.D.,
    where he worked in earlier years, were up to their armpits in the
    Ukraine in 1932-1933.

    If we do decide to charge in it is my understanding that a cavalry
    charge, by nature, is very difficult to stop.
