Beware of Another False Narrative Ushering in Another Crisis

Updated: May 9

By Colonel, Larry Kaifesh, USMC ret.

“The United States and its allies are responsible for this crisis [Ukraine], not Putin and the Russians.” ~Professor John Mearsheimer University of Chicago

We are in the age of false narratives that bring on crisis after crisis, resulting in the expansion of government encroaching on every aspect of our lives and liberties. Just in the last five years we experienced the tyranny of false narratives on Russian Collusion, Fair Elections, Insurrections, a virus and now a war in Ukraine.

If we learned anything in the last two years, it should be that our Western Governments lie and attack truth and transparency at every level, so they can usher in their oppressive and controlling New World Order.

Let’s be clear, if the United States told Putin and Russia, they were going to leave Ukraine to be a neutral country, there would be no conflict in Ukraine today.

Instead, the United States has promoted the following three dimensions since the fall of the Soviet Union, guaranteeing a military response by Russia:

I. NATO Expansion to include Ukraine

II. EU Expansion to include Ukraine

III. Color Revolution (Orange) promoting a liberal democracy in Ukraine

Since 2008 the United States and its allies have been trying to turn Ukraine into a Western Bulwark on the Russian border.

When the Soviet Union was caught putting missiles in Cuba in 1962, President John F. Kennedy made it clear, it was completely unacceptable and the United States would go to war, nuclear war, if the missiles were not removed. Why would we think that making Ukraine a NATO country with weapons oriented on Russia, would be acceptable by Putin?

In April of 2008 at the Bucharest NATO Summit, NATO announced that it would expand NATO into Georgia and Ukraine. Putin and the Russians made it clear that doing so would be unacceptable.

It is important to know, that there had already been two big tranches of NATO expansion before the 2008 Summit. There was the 1999 NATO expansion, which included Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic, and the 2004 NATO expansion, that included Romania and the Baltic States. Russia was not happy with the NATO expansion but dealt with it.

In 2014 when Pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych was ousted for a Pro-American President, it became clear it was a coup that was initiated by the United States, starting a new Cold War.

It was this act that pushed Putin into action, where Russia annexed Crimea. Crimea was critically important to the Russians, because of the strategic Sevastopol Naval Base, which Putin did not want to fall in the hands of a NATO country.

After seizing Crimea, Putin facilitated the Russian- speaking / backed separatist in the Civil War with Ukraine. Putin at this time made it clear that Crimea would not go back to Ukraine and he would destroy Ukraine before he let it become part of NATO.

Putin and Russia took the first two NATO expansions, but made it clear, they would not accept expansion into Ukraine or Georgia.

The United States, with its allies, has essentially turned Ukraine into a defacto member of NATO and just two weeks ago, Kamala Harris stated, “I appreciate and admire President Zalensky’s desire to join NATO,” throwing gas on the fire!

Ukraine got its independence when the Soviet Union broke apart in December of 1991. Until early 2014, when the coup took place, there were no problems with Ukraine.

The surest way to have ensured peace in Ukraine would have been for the United States to say it would keep Ukraine a neutral country...a buffer country, such as it had existed from 1991 to 2014.

Had this been done, the crisis in Ukraine would have never happened.

The United States, with an emphasis on this administration, is heavily responsible for the crisis in the Ukraine by pushing NATO. Now it sits idly by, providing weapons as the Ukrainians commit to fighting to the death. Once again, justice is lost on those pushing false narratives.

The saddest part is that after the United States and its allies pushed NATO so strongly on the Ukraine, (now that Russia responded,) NATO is nowhere to be found! The United States and its allies need to own this! This should have never happened!

Quote of the Day

“The question we ought to be asking ourselves is why did NATO even exist after 1990? If NATO was to stop Communism, why is it now expanding to Russia?”

~Noam Chomsky

In case you missed it, on January 30, 2002 The former deputy national security adviser explained how Russia and China were seeking support from one another as tension over Ukraine and Taiwan continues to build. Weeks later, we saw the Russian invasion unfold with NATO failing to stop it.

I think that is a legitimate question. If NATO was designed to stop Communism, why did it still exist after 1990 and expand to Russia? As for dealing with Russia, should we have been treating them as an adversary and pushing NATO and the EU on their doorstep provoking a Russian response? We would not accept a similar actions from Russia as was proven in 1962. After the fall of the Soviet Union, we missed an opportunity to establish an effective relationship with Russia. This would have been a good time to establish a cooperative relationship. We missed an opportunity. As for NATO, from Putin's perspective, NATO encroaching on it's border with weapons aimed on it is looked …

Ukraine has the khazarian (Spelling?) mafia which is incredibly corrupt. The Biden crime family, the Obama crime family, the Clinton crime family, the John Kerry crime family, the Pelosi crime family, the Soros crime family, the Gates crime family, the Busch crime family, the Rockefellers and Rothschilds and so on all have been money laundering in Ukraine. They are also part of the New World Order/ the Great Reset, if you will, and stand to get richer because of this war. War makes them wealthy and the ignorant poor citizens of Ukraine poorer. They think they're fighting Russia, but they aren't. Everyone thinks Russia is fighting them, but Russia is fighting the nazi control of the people listed ab…

Thank you for sharing this insight. I agree, truth and transparency has been sacrificed, and we need it now more than ever. Everyday, it is essential we share truth and transparency.


Great comments but no comments on how the west should deal with Russia. Is there still a need for NATO if so who is the threat? Russia is has been and will always be as long as they are not supporting democratic ideals. Therefore is it not right to support those same democratic ideals in the Ukraine after all NATO is not an offensive alliance is it?
