What Are They Thinking?

Washington has no moral authority to tell Russia not to invade Ukraine.
“You just don’t in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped up pre-text,” Secretary of State John Kerry told the CBS program “Face the Nation” Sunday.
What a laughable assertion. Kerry supported the U.S. invasion of Iraq. He’s joined the Barack Obama regime’s threats against Iran. He’s supported assaults on Libya, Syria, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia. Drone attacks, gun running and CIA-instigated uprisings are invasions, just as is sending in troops.
The U.S.-sponsored Ukrainian uprising is fast falling apart, and Russian President Vladimir Putin is not sitting idly by as the U.S./EU attempt to control the Ukraine and put U.S. missiles and a U.S. port so near Russia. Who can blame him? U.S. instigation in the Russia region has drawn Russia and China together and is pushing us toward war with two regional powers.
If the U.S. cannot defeat the Taliban in Afghanistan, how can a depleted and weary U.S. war machine hope to defeat Russia and China?
Besides, how would U.S. citizens feel if Russia backed a “revolution” in Mexico in order to install a puppet regime and put Russian missiles and warships so close to the U.S.?
