article imageOp-Ed: What the world must do about Ukraine

By Ralph Lopez     Mar 8, 2014 in World
The world must make a decision. Events in Ukraine, as Dr. Paul Craig Roberts says, are spinning “out of control.” A worrisome rise in Neo-Nazism has taken place in Ukraine.
Volodymyr Ishchenko of the Center for Society Research in Kiev says “It is too soon for the Right Sector to move against the new government – it lacks the support. But the group may lead a new insurrection in the event of a rapid and deepening economic crisis.”
Synagogues have already been attacked and Jews advised to leave the country.

This is after, in recent years, another Neo-Nazi party, Svoboda, gained 38 seats in the Ukrainian Parliament. Svoboda now controls the posts of deputy prime minister, ministers of defense, ecology, agriculture and the prosecutor general's office.
If you have never heard of Right Sector or Svoboda, don't worry, you will. Unfortunately. It was in fact Right Sector which brought down the statue of Vladimir Lenin in Kiev. Right Sector organized the trucks and equipment.

The question is what will the world do if some astute analysts' predictions come true, and a Neo-Nazi coalition takes control in Ukraine. Ukraine's roughly 100,000 Jews will be endangered.

We know who made the mess. It was the Obama administration, Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, John Kerry, and that whole cabal at Project for a New American Century which, as Wes Clark says, longed to bomb “seven countries in five years”: Iraq, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Lebanon, and Iran, and are now behind schedule. In punishment to Putin for almost single-handedly standing in the way of these plans, the Neocons, in the words of Professor Cohen of NYU and Princeton “plotted a coup d’état against the elected president of Ukraine."
It is the same cabal who brought us 9/11, as the world now understands, and has been behind an awfully large share of the mischief-making, invasions, and in general bloody murder taking place around the world. And they show no sign of stopping anytime soon.
But that is neither here nor there now. The world has learned one thing about Nazis and the Nazi ideology. Its force is irresistible, as coercion and intimidation are perfected as a high political art. Words are only means toward deception, and elections are only means to gain access to the inner chambers of government so that a machine-gun can be set up aiming squarely at the members of Parliament, to insure their "rights" are not "trampled." When Adolf Hitler's Brown Shirts mounted their popular peutch, the general method was to enter a beer hall, set up a machine-gun in front, and inform everyone they were now going to listen to a little speech.
Right Sector's Aleksandr Shevchenko recently stood in a local city council, brandishing an AK-47, and informed them that his armed members would be at polling stations to insure the elections were not “rigged” against Neo-Nazis. Thus the Neo-Nazi idea of an election, as they point a gun at you: “We won.”
The world has seen this before, and has learned what it must do. Whatever one says or knows about the corrupt forces which gave us the first Nazi regime, the bankers, the industrialists, one thing stands firm: They had to be stopped.
The world learned that vipers must be eradicated while still in the nest. After that it is too late. Svoboda makes no secret of its ambition for Ukraine to join the nuclear club. Neo-Nazis who quote Goebbels and once started “the Joseph Goebbels Political Research Center” would have their finger on the nuclear button.
The world must act, now, if our sons and nephews are not to be handed the job under far grimmer circumstances, after Neo-Nazis have divisions and battalions at their command. No acceptance, nor recognition, of any Nazi regime in the heart of Central Europe can be allowed. The world's men must go to Ukraine to fight alongside democratic forces, before the take-over.
An alliance between the Russian military and the American one might be necessary, as Russian and US Special Forces hunt down leaders and leaders in exile. This beast must be snuffed out now.
We remember what happened to six million Jews, Gypsies, and other “undesirables.” If you are Black, Hispanic, or in the least bit brown, these people would as soon kill you as look at you. You are nothing to them.
The satanic budding evil must be stopped, and Americans can throw out the politicians who caused it, by, in Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland's own words, spending “five billion dollars” meddling in Ukrainian politics. Once again we have created a monster.
Otherwise it will be up to young men to do the job, as our grandfathers did who, with breathtaking courage, stormed beaches like Normandy, to appalling 50, 60, and 70 percent casualties among some units. Entire companies were wiped out.
This will not be. And what if rich old men, and women, caused the problem, and left it up to poor boys from Omaha, the ghettos of the Bronx, the poor boys in Texas, Latinos in L.A., and Irish lads from South Boston, to clean up the mess?
Ah, when has it ever been otherwise?
