Armstrong Economics Blog/Ukraine Re-Posted May 1, 2023 by Martin Armstrong
Zelensky is slick. He is now lining his pockets with the goal of becoming a billionaire when he flees to his estate in Miami. He is now trying to sell off all state assets in the fossil fuel sector to corporations like ExxonMobil, Chevron, and Halliburton. Of course, these companies are all showing that war is coming. The volatility rises sharply from 2024 on and a critical target will be 2026. This is what makes me think that the Neocons will do whatever it takes to stop Trump and that will include even assassinating him as they did to JFK to wage their war against Russia in Vietnam.
Robert McNamara (1916 – 2009) was a leading Neocon that pushed the country into the Vietnam War. He was famous for saying: “I learned early on never answer the question that is asked of you. Answer the question that you wish had been asked of you. And quite frankly, I follow that rule. It’s a very good rule.”
Before he died, McNamara wrote a book, perhaps to clear his conscience, and finally admitted that they were wrong, particularly in their assessment of Russia as a threat. The Neocons today regard him as a traitor and wrong. I have yet to hear even any kind word about him from their camp of endless wars.
The perception that Russia is a threat is still dominating the agenda today. The propaganda that Putin is a KGB guy who wants to re-establish the Soviet Empire is absurd. In the 22 years that he has been in power, he has neither tried to re-establish communism nor has he sought to retake the old Soviet states like Poland, the Czech Republic, or even Ukraine. The same claims today about Russia are the very same ones that justified Vietnam.
Looking at the cycles in the markets and war, these people will destroy Western Civilization. The Ukrainian people are absolute fools, for their leadership is also so wrapped up in their hatred of all the Russian people that they are leading their country into total destruction. Ukraine will cease to exist as a country that they dreamed of. They are surrendering their lives all for the dreams of the Neocons with Blinken in charge.
Several families with people in the military are reporting that soldiers are being informed we will be at war as soon as this year. Then Army aviators, who are entitled to leave, have been told they suddenly now owe 3 more years instead. People are suddenly finding out that we are not in Kansas anymore. We have no rights, and the Neocons have seized control of Washington. Welcome to their version of democracy.
Writing on Twitter, Mykhailo Podolyak said the U.S. and other Western nations encouraged Ukraine to give up nuclear weapons as the former Soviet Union collapsed, offering safeguards in return. This was misinterpreted by Russia, leading to conflict, Podolyak is the warmonger who argues that there shall be no surrender of the Donbas despite the fact that the population there are Russians and that Kyiv began the civil war on the order of the American Neocons. It is not that Ukraine surrendered its nuclear weapons; that is a fool’s argument. Europe and the US have nukes and so do Russia and China yet we are headed into war anyway. He will not let the people of the Donbas vote in a democracy when they are treated like vermin and are hated as Russians. This is why Ukraine has become an evil empire destined to create World War III just as our computer forecast back in 2013 one year before their revolution of 2014.
Here are other “advisers” to Zelensky.
