How The West Provoked War In Ukraine: Katie Halper & Aaron Mate Interview Ben Abelow

Link here.

Interview starts at about 13 and a half minutes in. Ben Abelow is the author of the book How the West Brought War to Ukraine, which I am currently reading and will be posting a review of soon. – Natylie Baldwin

"A brilliant, remarkably concise explanation of the danger that U.S and NATO military involvement in Ukraine has created. Needs to be read and pondered by every citizen capable of thinking rationally and responsibly about American and European security."

— Jack F. Matlock, Jr., U.S. Ambassador to the Soviet Union, 1987-1991, author of Superpower Illusions

"For anyone interested in understanding the true causes of the disaster in Ukraine, How the West Brought War to Ukraine is required reading. Abelow makes a clear and compelling case that the United States and its NATO allies—not Vladimir Putin—are the principal culprits."

— John J. Mearsheimer, author of The Tragedy of Great Power Politics, is the R. Wendell Harrison Distinguished Service Professor of Political Science at the University of Chicago 

"For those concerned about U.S. national security and the peace of Europe, this book is essential reading."

— Douglas Macgregor, Colonel (Retired), U.S. Army, author of Margin of Victory, was decorated for valor in the Battle of 73 Easting in Iraq and served as Director of NATO's Joint Operations Center at SHAPE (Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe)

"This is a splendid little book, taughtly written, logically organized, easy to read and persuasive but appropriately caveated. It is an invaluable primer on the trends and events that produced the escalating warfare in Ukraine. Without understanding the history documented in this book, there will be no de-escalation of the US-Russian confrontation on Europe's eastern borders."

— Chas Freeman, previously Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs, author of Arts of Power: Statecraft and Diplomacy

"In the Ukraine proxy war between the United States/NATO and Russia, we face a threat of nuclear escalation that could end human civilization. Abelow's book is essential reading for all who wish to understand this threat and why, 30 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, it has re-emerged."

— Gilbert Doctorow, author of Memoirs of a Russianist, is an historian and independent Russia specialist based in Brussels

Up to You.

^3000US citizens have no real political representation.

We don't live in a democracy. And our freedom is disappearing fast.

I don't want to be ruled by hypocrites, whores, and war criminals.

What about you? Time to push back against the corporate oligarchy.

And its multitude of minions and lackeys.
