The Beacon that is East Ukraine: Are you on the right side of history? | The Smirking Chimp

As the fog of war descends, it is important to shout a few main points from the rooftops before they get lost in the details. A coup-appointed junta in Kiev, designed, engineered and controlled from Washington, has begun a massive armed assault on its citizens in the east.

This supreme and original war crime, reinforced by the Nuremburg Tribunal, is no longer in doubt. Nor can there be any more doubt about who is pulling the strings. The illegitimate junta have pulled out all the stops, as their IMF masters demanded they do just the other day. Pointedly--and tellingly--the mafia enforcer organization of western capital issued a statement saying that the crushing austerity agreement--already a death sentence in its own right--might have to be 'revised' if the chosen cabal could not control the rebellious and resource rich eastern regions, the grand prize in the whole 'democracy' charade. The junta, using a rump military and their fascist shock troops, has dutifully complied--a shameful and disgusting moment in world history. It is also, however, a moment that I think will be transformative in ways we can't even yet understand.

For a moment, I was afraid that in a fully militarized phase the resistance would be less able to access its chief asset--the people. When war breaks out, soldiers are not forced to confront the humanity of their opponents, and we would no longer see scenes like cordons of ordinary people trying to stop tanks with their bare hands. I was wrong again, I fully admit. The struggle, like life, teaches me something new every day. The people's resilience is love itself, and I am in awe of their courage; I wake up every morning glad to be alive because I'm glad they are still alive.

And a giant middle finger to the "peace" community, the apologists of the war machine, and especially liberals and elements of the first world left who are always the last to see that their purist intellectual detachment is always--*always*--suspiciously close to empire's agenda, who watch (and cheerlead!) while the US and its proxies slaughter innocents and thwart the will of the people from Afghanistan to Zaporozhye.
