Ukraine and Israel
I’ve been reading Raymond Chandler’s The High Window for the second time. The plot is convoluted. Somehow it got me thinking about Ukraine and Israel. Both countries are complicated crime scenes of U.S. foreign policy. They will never be objectively investigated and exposed.
Like The High Window, plots and subplots embedded with events in Ukraine and Israel are confusing and loaded with smoke screens. It is difficult to navigate. Unlike The High Window, this is not fiction.
The chief homicide detective tells Philip Marlow, “When it comes to murder cases, everybody lies….” The same could be said about official pronouncements from the White House and State Department. At this point, U.S. foreign policy amounts to a cover story.
Recently I informed a leftwing friend that every casualty of the Ukraine conflict since 2014 was the fault of Washington and not the Kremlin. Without a series of complots initiated in Washington, there would have been no civil war in Ukraine and no subsequent Russo-Ukraine war.
My friend blames everything on Vlad Putin, but that’s just the official N.Y. Times-CIA narrative. Misleading, superficial and too easy. From the start Putin played defense, reactive to Washington’s proactive meddling inside Ukraine where the Russian population was being denigrated and attacked. Finally, Putin was goaded into action.
Washington’s other sacrosanct adopted country, Israel, the final work-product of Zionism, requires some background. The enabler of this neocolonial enterprise was first England and later—when the British Empire predictably imploded after the Second World War—America.
What has transpired in and around Palestine since the First World War is truly an outrage. None of it could have taken place without British politicians subordinating themselves to the Zionist agenda in return for a favor advancing their own agenda. As should be obvious, the 1917 Balfour Declaration was a quid pro quo.
On the ground, Germany had all but won the war on the Western Front. Bolshevik Russia had made a separate peace with Germany on the Eastern Front. John Bull desperately wanted to drag President Wilson and America into the blood bath to turn the tide.
At this critical juncture, British Zionists offered their services to the British Foreign Office to make it happen. In return, they wanted England to transfer Palestine to them as a “national home” for the Jews. A business arrangement. What was the upshot?
The British War Cabinet played the Zionis
