The New Cold War is in full swing, so the academically qualified apologists for this re-engineered recrudescence will come forward, as members in good standing of the National Security States of the E.U. to quietly supply ‘reasons’. And to effect a bit of Russia bashing, in the process of fueling The New Cold War, as a perfectly legitimate response to Russia’s self-serving historical blindness and recalcitrance. Ignoring this from IISS on Obama’s discarding of the Bush missile shield from 2009:
Or this excerpt from Wikipedia:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/US_missile_defense_complex_in_Poland
‘EIS was cancelled in 2009 and subsequently replaced with a phased plan—the Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System, which will include SM-3 Block IIA interceptors to be positioned in Poland from 2018.’
Or this from the BBC:
Titled: Q&A on Missile Defence
All of this is very confusing , yet we can discern a pattern of a more technically sophisticated strategy of encirclement or at the least something that functions in it’s stead.
But we do as readers have the Ukrainian Coup as incontrovertible evidence of American/EU/NATO political provocation/meddling although there are stronger words for this subversion!
And then this:
With the title:
‘Pro-Russian Hackers Expose U.S. Military Contractor Activity in Ukraine
The hactivist group ‘CyberBerkut’ has been relentlessly leaking and stealing documents from the Ukranian government and military allies’

Or this revelatory essay at The New Republic:
‘ The new laws in Ukraine go further. Their aim is to impose a sharp break between present-day Ukraine and its entire Soviet past, now deemed criminal. As they foreground a questionable story of ethnic Ukrainians who throughout their history fought Russian domination, these initiatives also whitewash dark areas of the country’s past.’
Mr. Clark does a workman like job supplying ‘reasons’, yet one can fully understand the Russian position as a rational, reasonable response to US/EU/NATO aggression on the installment plan! Even with the evocative historical garnish Mr. Clark’s essays qualifies as propaganda!
