Gerald Sussman‘s new article “Russia-Ukraine Conflict: The Propaganda War,” like Zafar Bangash’s article on Pakistan, traces a current catastrophe to its post-WWII-era origins. As in the case of Pakistan, the Western bankster cartel has had a hand in destabilizing Ukraine for more than 70 years. In both cases the banksters and their CIA hired guns have worked with extremely unsavory elements. In Ukraine that means not just gangsters (including the Zionist gangster oligarchs who run the country) but also Nazi fanatics.

So is Zelensky’s war really about self-defense? Or are the Russians the ones defending themselves against a long-term bankster war whose aim is to “crack apart” Russia?

Gerald Sussman is professor of urban studies and international and global studies at Portland State University. He is the author and editor of several books, including The Propaganda Society: Promotional Culture and Politics in Global Context (2011).

    No, he’s right. Who the hell has an hour to sit listening to this.

  4. He hit on an important topic: that the United States doesn’t produce much, and this would become of critical importance when we do get into a serious shooting war. Alexander Mercouris has discussed this in his video casts. Mercouris points out that Russian forces in Ukraine fire ten times as many artillery rounds as Ukraine, and this is why they are winning; and furthermore, the US, Britain, France and Germany do not have the industrial capacity to produce enough artillery rounds, rockets and missiles to support Ukraine at a comparable level with Russia. Even if we sent Ukraine all the artillery rounds and missiles we have in our stockpiles, it still would fall woefully short.We read constant stories in the US and British press that the Russians are almost out of ammunition and cruise missiles, etc., yet the Russian forces keep firing tens of thousands of rounds per day and keep firing rockets and missiles.

    The bottom line is that when it comes to fighting big-boy wars the US and its vassals do not have the industrial capacity to wage war on the level we see in Ukraine.

  5. “So is Zelensky’s war really about self-defense? Or are the Russians the ones defending themselves against a long-term bankster war whose aim is to “crack apart” Russia?”

    Ohhh good grief . . .

    the contend here is that the Global economic leadership is attempting to break up Russia.

    aha the waty to prevent breaking up Russia by economic practices . . .

    ” I know”. says the Kremlin leadership . . .

    Let’s invade Ukraine.

  6. “The bottom line is that when it comes to fighting big-boy wars the US and its vassals do not have the industrial capacity to wage war on the level we see in Ukraine.”

    You might want to review the US ability to crank out and produce material for warmaking . . .

    Don’r mistake the current US population’s reluctance for war as an inability to engage in the same. Should the US population experience a warrant for war . . . then it matter who the target, they can stand the heck by

    The Ukrainian war’s undisputed benefactor is the West’s military industrial complexes. They are providing arms to a non Slavic Ukrainian government, which is their ally in Kiev, for the prolong Slavs killing each other nice setup. Although the benefits are greatly stained by the Russian clever and effective energy policies toward the West’s elite.

  8. @EliteCommInc.

    The splittist US has been chipping away at Asia for many decades. See all those dirty little US wars? Remember when Georgia started shelling Georgia and a thousand “israeli” advisors left in a hurry? Of course they are trying to smash China’s silk road.
