In news virtually no one wants to hear, yet another globalist is blaring on and on about the likelihood of a “long war.”
Of course, the “long war” is in Ukraine, and, unfortunately, the proclamation has originated straight from the upper echelons of NATO itself.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg recently delivered public remarks, in which he all but urged the world to be prepared for indefinite conflict in Eastern Europe.
“Most wars last longer than expected when they first begin. Therefore, we must prepare ourselves for a long war in Ukraine,” Stoltenberg intoned ominously.
Wow, you don’t say.
Most wars also have a tendency to “last longer” when a select few benefit richly from various military contracts and other lucrative agreements, which has clearly been the case in more than one war over time.
On top of that, it seems that quite a few individuals with too much power in the government have been all too eager to “poke the bear” for an extended period of time, which makes the “long war” comments now seem as though they were prewritten before the war even began.
“We are all wishing for a quick peace,” Stoltenberg added insincerely, before continuing on to cite the harsh realities of the situation.
“But at the same time we must recognize [that] if President (Volodymyr) Zelensky and the Ukrainians stop fighting, their country will no longer exist,” Stoltenberg continued.
Considering that the United States didn’t seem very concerned about Afghanistan no longer “existing” following Biden’s horrific withdrawal from the Taliban-controlled nation.
It’s also funny that Stoltenberg appears to completely ignore the advice of various geopolitical experts, despite being the NATO Secretary, which is especially clear in his next, rather inflammatory remark.
“[There] is no doubt that Ukraine will eventually be in NATO,” Stoltenberg declared.
That declaration is precisely why war began in the first place.
The reality is that no country would respond favorably to a massive military alliance growing increasingly near its own borders – after all, the Cuban Missile Crisis was incredibly unnerving due to the Russians’ proposed activities in the Caribbean nation during the Cold War.
And, as the United States has continued to antagonize Russia over the years, and vice versa, it is no surprise that rather realistic geopolitical experts have published long analyses regarding American culpability in Ukraine.
John J. Mearsheimer, who is a well-respected geopolitical scholar, has published well-detailed analyses regarding varied world affairs, including a rather intriguing piece: “Why the Ukraine Crisis is the West’s Fault.”
In the lengthy article, Mearsheimer namechecks multiple U.S. politicians, including both Obama and Biden, for their roles in stoking the Ukraine crisis.
Tellingly, this article was published in 2014, and it is quite eerie to read in hindsight.
“Western leaders have also clung to the provocative policies that precipitated the crisis in the first place. In April, U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden met with Ukrainian legislators and told them, ‘This is a second opportunity to make good on the original promise made by the Orange Revolution,’” Mearsheimer writes.
No doubt Biden also checked on his “business deals” during the same trip, while he was simultaneously laying the groundwork for future chaos.
Mearsheimer also points out rather sensible advice by the end of his article, advice clearly ignored by both the United States and NATO:
“The United States and its European allies now face a choice on Ukraine. They can continue their current policy, which will exacerbate hostilities with Russia and devastate Ukraine in the process – a scenario in which everyone would come out a loser. Or they can switch gears and work to create a prosperous but neutral Ukraine, one that does not threaten Russia and allows the West to repair its relations with Moscow. With that approach, all sides would win,” Mearsheimer concludes.
Nearly ten years later, the opposite of Mearsheimer’s recommendation has played out, especially with Stoltenberg’s asinine proclamation regarding Ukraine and NATO.
That statement all but guarantees a long war … which was likely the plan in the first place.
