In the midst of Sister Sarah of the Order of the Immaculate Secular Heart of American Interest “I told you so’s” (and of course she knew, Randy Scheunemann was her and McCain’s foreign policy adviser during the 2008 campaign), the Daily Mail came out with this story.
Bill Clinton, John Major, Boris Yeltsin and Leonid Kuchma – the then-rulers of the USA, UK, Russia and Ukraine – agreed to the The Budapest Memorandum as part of the denuclearization of former Soviet republics after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Technically it means that if Russia has invaded Ukraine then it would be difficult for the US and Britain to avoid going to war.
A treaty to protect a country most in the USA couldn’t find on a map. Call me shocked.
In response Mr Brenton said in a BBC radio interview: ‘If indeed this is a Russian invasion of Crimea and if we do conclude the [Budapest] Memorandum is legally binding then it’s very difficult to avoid the conclusion that we’re going to go to war with Russia’.
I guess my question is, after a decade of military adventures in the Mid-East and a US public weary of more military action, are they ready to send there sons and daughters into a region that would no doubt plunge the West into another destructive and needless War? Are they ready to protect another countries borders, all the while the borders of North America are wide open to every criminal Third Worlder? Are we going to do this, where even inside that country, most want to be with their Russian brethren? How stupid are Americans? Is a move to Canada looking like a better idea every day?
Our blood comes from the same Father Lands and Mother Soils of Europe. These are our people! I know, day dreaming about that Utopian European Imperium.
We’ve seen what a”Treaty” has done in the past with all but the destruction of Western Civilization.
Cough-WW1-WW2- cough. Were they a warning on what not to do, or will they be shoved aside to get that War with Russia, so many in the US have been wanting since October of 1962?
Hail Mary, Pray for Us.
