Only a few short months after the chaotic US defeat in Afghanistan, the US is pushing a war with Russia, a major nuclear power. US officials insist that the Russians will invade Ukraine. Russia has repeatedly denied this.

In recent days the US and some of their allies have closed their embassies and asked their nationals to leave Ukraine. [The US and allies moved their embassies to Lvov in western Ukraine where Nazis predominate.]

The Ukrainian military has a force of 150,000 troops, that are U.S. trained and armed with modern US weapons, near the Russian border and the independent regions in Donbass. These independent regions have taken a stand in opposition to the right-wing, coup government in Kiev, since 2014. The Ukrainian military has started heavy shelling of the independent areas of Donbass, which have returned the fire.

Every U.S. war in our lifetime has been based on false information, repeated relentlessly by the corporate media. There is deep apprehension that the US and the Ukrainian government are preparing a “false flag” incident that could lead to a major conflict.

The US has tens of thousands of troops in Europe, it is putting troops on high alert and sending more. They are not only arming the Ukrainian military, but they are expanding NATO bases and sending additional arms and missiles to other NATO countries in the region.

It is important that the US antiwar movement come together to oppose these dangerous war moves. Please join us on Tuesday.

U.S.-NATO war games near Russian borders

Since NATO expansion began during the Clinton administration, the US-NATO have been holding regular war games near or on Russia’s borders.

Moscow has been asking Washington and Brussels for years to honor the promise made to Russia at the end of the Cold War that NATO would not expand ‘one inch’ toward Russia.

NATO is now expanding into a global military vehicle – signing up members and partners in Latin America and the Asia-Pacific.


U.S. missile bases in Romania & Poland

Washington has built two missile launch facilities in Romania and Poland. They can fire so-called ‘missile defense’ systems as well as nuclear-capable first-strike attack Tomahawk cruise missiles which can reach Russia in a very short time.

This is a Cuban missile crisis in reverse.

Imagine if China or Russia were deploying nuclear missiles in Canada or Mexico. The U.S. would go ballistic!
