Ukraine Warzone Flooded with Foreign Weapons as Fighting Rages On

The United States and a long list of Western allies have pledged additional arms shipments to bolster Ukraine’s war effort, including anti-aircraft missiles and tank-killing Javelins. Fierce clashes with Russian forces continue in cities from Kiev to Kharkiv, meanwhile, as local residents report civilian deaths and damage to infrastructure by Russian bombardment.  Awash in Weapons While President Joe Biden had already greenlit $200 million in “lethal aid” to Kiev in December, another $350 million weapons package was approved last week, including Stinger anti-aircraft missiles –...

US Will Pay ‘Heavy Price’ for Taiwan Meddling, China Warns

US Will Pay ‘Heavy Price’ for Taiwan Meddling, China Warns

Beijing will not tolerate continued American intervention in Taiwan, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said after a group of US defense officials visited the island for a show of support. The trip came just days after another US warship transited the Taiwan Strait, a move China has repeatedly slammed as “provocative.” The US delegation was led by a number of current and former security officials – among them the hawkish Obama-era Pentagon staffer Michele Flournoy and ex-Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Mike Mullen – to show Washington’s “continued robust support for Taiwan,” according to a US...

Media Criticism of Putin’s Invasion Rings Hollow

Media Criticism of Putin’s Invasion Rings Hollow

With Russia’s attack on Ukraine underway, the corporate media is awash with openly hostile coverage of the conflict, embedded with an implicit premise that the Russian Aggressor has invented an empty pretext for the invasion of its neighbor. Concerns over NATO, it suggests, are merely cover for an expansionist dictator hellbent on conquering Europe. Vladimir Putin’s ongoing incursion into Ukraine is excessive and unjustified. The deaths of innocent civilians are on his hands, and steps short of an assault were likely available to him. (A true peacekeeping mission to defend Russian-speaking...

US Troops Will Not Fight in Ukraine ‘in any scenario,’ White House says

President Joe Biden has no plans to send American soldiers to fight on Ukrainian soil, the White House said, though continued to warn of stiffer sanctions on Russia should it “further invade” its neighbor.  “The president has no intention of sending the US military or US troops to fight in Ukraine,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters at a Wednesday press briefing. “That is not a decision the president is going to make. We are not going to be in a war with Russia or putting military troops on the ground fighting Russia.” The comments follow Moscow’s decision to recognize two...

Sanctions & Troop Deployments: US Retaliates to Russia’s Donbass Move

Reacting to Moscow’s decision to recognize the independence of Ukraine’s Donbass region, the United States has imposed a raft of harsh sanctions targeting Russian financial entities and bolstered its troop presence in the Baltics.  The White House announced its “first tranche” of “swift and severe” measures against Russia on Tuesday, bringing “full blocking sanctions” on two major financial institutions and dozens of their subsidiaries, as well as sovereign debt prohibitions designed to deny Moscow’s access to capital and key US markets.  A release by the Treasury Department elaborated on...

Proxy or Not? US Can’t Make Up Its Mind on Yemen’s Houthis

In announcing its latest round of sanctions on Iran, Washington once again declared Yemen’s Houthi movement a “proxy” of the Islamic Republic, but recent statements from US officials – including Trump’s top Iran envoy – finally put the lie to that worn out talking point. Targeting a major shipping network as well as Tehran’s largest private airline on Wednesday, the US Treasury Department maintained the new sanctions would disrupt Iran’s support for “proxy militias” in Yemen and elsewhere, singling out the Houthis by name. https://twitter.com/USTreasury/status/1204806935779954689 While such...
