I Don’t Now What’s Going On In Ukraine, But I Do Know One Thing: We Should STAY OUT OF IT

It’s Not Our Fight
Most American mainstream media say that the Ukranian people rose up against a decadent dictator to chart their own destiny.
On the other hand, some knowledgeable commentators say that the Ukranian protests were really a violent coup initiated by the U.S., and carried out by Neo-Nazi factions within Ukraine.
People like Mark Ames argue that all sides have dirt on their hands.
Still others – like Charles Hugh Smith – say that there are much deeper forces at work. Indeed, some argue this is really a war over natural gas (and see this).
At this point, I have no idea which of these explanations is correct, or whether some combination of these forces is playing out in the region.
