The Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin E. Dempsey loves Armageddon.
Even with a sustainable ceasefire active in Ukraine, the US top brass is nursing schemes of arming Kiev troops with lethal aid, while the US president has prolonged anti-Russian sanctions introduced a year ago in connection with the Ukraine crisis.
It’s the first time that the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, has spoken out in favor of supplying Kiev troops with American weapons.
“I think we should absolutely consider lethal aid and it ought to be in the context of NATO allies because [Russian President Vladimir] Putin’s ultimate objective is to fracture NATO,” AFP cited Dempsey, speaking to the Senate Armed Services Committee.
« What do we want?!?
War with Russia!!
When do we want it?!?
(Ahem). A short memo to Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin E. Dempsey: sir, your painfully obvious desire for a shooting war against Russia, to which the US government’s lethal arming of Ukraine will nearly inevitably lead, may well tip this country’s forward trajectory into a very terrible place for We the People.
The people of this country are war weary in the extreme, and after the absolute fiascoes the wars against Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya have become, want no more of this. This country is broke, and already devastated by the number of military corpses which have been returned home after these military misadventures, not to mention those who have come home maimed for life.
I would also suggest, sir, and you know this, that the US military, at this point in its history, does not have the money, the manufacturing, or the troop strength to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia; and that is what makes the military option so scarily dangerous.
I would observe that the propaganda attempts to demonize both Russia and Putin, via the government’s talking heads on television and radio, are not working at all: the big lie no longer works, sir.
It appears that this country’s leadership cannot negotiate their way, in good faith, our of a bloody paper bag, and that is a very dangerous moment for the future of this country, because the only option after negotiations, is war.
