WAR DRUMS: President Barack Obama expected to sign the “congressional authorization for war against Russia”.
investigative historian Eric Zuesse has said that the United States is
using the crisis in Ukraine to wage an all-out war against Russia.
“Washington isn’t out to help the Ukrainian people; it’s solely using Ukraine as a launching-pad for WWIII against Russia,” he wrote in an article published by Global Research on Sunday.
The famous author explained that President Barack Obama was expected to sign the “congressional authorization for war against Russia” and the Pentagon was shipping “military supplies into Ukraine for use against Ukraine’s ethnic Russians.”
Zuesse also noted that Moscow would respond to Washington’s measures against the Kremlin after a leading Russian parliamentarian said Americans wanted to turn Ukraine into a fighting platform against his country.
The historian finally urged the American people to question US authorities about the reason that they voted to approve sending weapons to Ukraine.
On Thursday, the US Congress imposed new economic sanctions against Russia and authorized lethal and non-lethal military aid to Ukraine.
The legislation authorized Obama to provide lethal aid to Ukraine, including anti-tank weapons, ammunition, and "tactical troop-operated surveillance drones."
The United States accuses Russia of sending troops into eastern Ukraine in support of the pro-Russian forces, an allegation denied by the Kremlin.
Last week, the Pentagon threatened Russia with redeploying nuclear cruise missiles to Europe, accusing Moscow of violating two arms control treaties.
