If you look at the track record of the interventionists you might think they would pause before taking on more projects. Each of their past projects has ended in disaster yet still they press on. Last week the website Zero Hedge posted a report about hacked emails between billionaire George Soros and Ukrainian President Poroshenko.

Soros is very close to the Ukrainian president, who was put in power after a US-backed coup deposed the elected leader of Ukraine last year. In the email correspondence, Soros tells the Ukrainian leadership that the US should provide Ukraine “with same level of sophistication in defense weapons to match the level of opposing force.” In other words, despite the February ceasefire, Soros is pushing behind the scenes to make sure Ukraine receives top-of-the-line lethal weapons from the United States. Of course it will be up to us to pay the bill because Ukraine is broke.

But Soros seems to have the money part covered as well. In an email to Ukrainian leaders, he wrote that Ukraine’s “first priority must be to regain control of financial markets.” Soros told Poroshenko that the IMF would need to come through with a $15 billion package, which was confident would lead the Fed to also come through with more money. He wrote: “the Federal Reserve could be asked to extend a $15 billion three months swap arrangement with the National Bank of Ukraine. That would reassure the markets and avoid a panic.”

How would the Fed be convinced to do that? Soros assured Poroshenko: “I am ready to call Jack Lew of the US Treasury to sound him out about the swap agreement.”

So George Soros will use his influence in the US government to put the American people on the hook for a bankrupt Ukraine — forcing us to pay for weapons, more military training, and Ukraine’s crippling debt.

Who is thrilled with Soros’ drawing the US government into more intervention in the region? The military-industrial complex for one is happy at the prospect of big weapons “sales” to Ukraine. The bankers are thrilled. Washington power-brokers are thrilled. There is something in this for everyone who is politically well-connected. The only losers are the people who will be forced to pay for it, the American taxpayers.

No one seems to ask why we are involved in Ukraine at all. Is it really any of our business if the east wants to break away from the west? Is it a vital US interest which flag the people wish to hang in Donetsk?

One thing we should be sure of is that Ukraine’s debt will not be paid. As in other bailouts, much of it will be transferred to the US taxpayer through the IMF and the Federal Reserve. All of this is only possible because of the perception that the dollar is still the world’s reserve currency. But this too is coming to an end. US military and financial interventionism worldwide are only speeding up the process.

    INTERNATIONAL JEWISH CRIMINAL GEORGE SCHWARTZ STILL FREE?

    Sir, thanks for the interesting article. It proves very clearly that the conflict in Ukraine has been incited by the Judaists (who call themselves “Jews” but are mostly white people whose ancestors converted to Judaism in the Middle Ages) and they are putting fuel to the fire, to incite white people of Russia and Ukraine to kill each other.

    It should be noted that George Soros (whose real name is George Schwartz) is an international Jewish criminal. He was convicted of insider trading in France. This was confirmed by his Jewish friends who run Bloomberg magazine:

    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2011-10-06/soros-loses-human-rights-appeal-against-insider-trading-case

    His financial success is very fishy because he had inside contacts with the British PM’s office and so knew that the British PM was going to get out of the ERM (exchange rate mechanism) that enabled Soros to bet against the British pound and make billions. See:

    http://www.jufinance.com/fin415_15s/week_2_wsj_papers.docx

    Russia should issue an arrest warrant against this criminal for inciting violence in Ukraine and have him extradited to Russia and try this criminal for his crimes against humanity and all the death and destruction this madman has caused.

    This whole attack on Russia is about Jew money and power and Israel.

    There is no rational reason for America to get evolved in all this.

    We and the world do not need these sanctions on Russia. This is a Jewry power grab.

    It is time to boycott the Jews – end of story.

    All that I can say that maybe you don’t understand this things so deeply as people, who live in Ukraine. Ukrainians pay for this war firstly and they don’t want this war more than you. I’m from Ukraine. We pays for the war every day. And if you investigate where this war came from you would understand that this war is not between Ukraine and Russia, but between US and Russia on our territory. Revolution and war have foreign funding.
    That is why this conflict is called WWIII. We lived in peace and West/East did not want to separate- everything is a conflict of millionaires and politicians. People are sick and tired of it!!!

    Stock market crash on the way, time for war. It’s all very simple.

    The stock market crashes because all the insiders have sold to all the dupes in the public. The crash allows the insiders to buy back from the dupes at 40% of what the dupes paid.

    This is the eternal cycle of the stock market. The insiders do need an excuse to trigger the decline or the dupes will catch on.

    “And if you investigate where this war came from you would understand that this war is not between Ukraine and Russia, but between US and Russia on our territory. “

    How sad – the truth is that the US does not have a foreign policy that represents its people – tribal Jews control US foreign policy.

    Boycott Disinvest Sanction

  7. Putin, not Ukraine is the problem for America. Putin grabbed Crimea without a mousesqueak. Ukraine controls Russia’s pipelines. Tell Putin to leave Crimea or shut off a few million gallons and replace them with American sourced energy. This is so reminiscent of the Sudetenland and we know how bad that ended.

    Ron Paul dislikes a worldwide America. He’s right but mostly wrong. America needs jobs and the worldwide defense industry can be supplied by Russia and China or America. But International solutions should be about right and wrong, not jobs even when the jobs become part of the result.

    But International solutions should be about right and wrong

    No. They should be about what’s in the national interest.
