Broken Promise: Trump to Send Lethal Weapons to Ukraine in Fight against Russia


Broken Promise: Trump to Send Lethal Weapons to Ukraine in Fight against Russia

By Julio Severo
The Trump administration has approved a plan to provide lethal weapons to Ukraine, a move that deepens America’s involvement in the military conflict and may further strain relations with Russia, according to an Associated Press report of December 23, 2017. The Russian government did not respond in a positive tone.

Even though it is very important, Trump’s decision comes as people are with their mind occupied with Christmas season and New Year. It is a very unpleasant surprise which no one is paying attention to because of distractive Christmas.
Why does Trump want to arm Ukraine against Russia?
The Obama administration, with the assistance of neocons, ignited the conflict in Ukraine, and Trump’s promise in his 2016 campaign was not to support Ukraine, but Russia, especially considering that, technically, Russia is well-equipped to respond to Ukrainian escalation with a stronger answer.
While Trump had praised Russia in 2016 and his advisers were supporting pro-Russian forces in Ukraine, neocons have openly praised the Ukrainian revolution as the best democratic example against dictatorship. The Ukrainian revolution was the biggest Soros revolution, massively funded by him.
John McCain and other neocons want Ukraine in NATO and are willing to go to war over it. In contrast, Trump had shown no willingness to follow neocon passions for war in Ukraine against Russia.
On September 2016, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko invited Trump for a meeting, but, according to DailyMail, “the Ukrainian government says the Republican candidate blew them off.”
Yet, Hillary Clinton met Poroshenko and promised him that she would stand with Ukraine against “Russian aggression.”
While neocons want Ukraine in NATO’s orbit and they are using the Ukrainian situation to strengthen NATO, Trump had again been in conflict with their interests. Yet, now as president Trump has abandoned his anti-neocon promises and followed Hillary’s bad example.
Sending lethal weapons to Ukraine was Hillary’s original proposal. McCain and other neocons also want to arm Ukraine. In fact, Kurt Volker, the U.S. special representative for Ukraine negotiations, is a “former staffer of Sen. McCain… and executive director of the neocon McCain Institute.” Volker is the architect of the new arms package from Trump to Ukraine.
McCain is one of the most rabid neocons in the U.S. Congress.
Volker envisions a deepening U.S. involvement in a Ukrainian civil war that was initiated by Obama, Soros and neocons.
Sending lethal weapons to Ukraine creates the troubling possibility that American arms could kill Russian soldiers, a situation that could thrust the two nuclear-armed nations closer to direct confrontation.
It is an unnecessary and stupid military escalation, under Trump, of a conflict initiated by Obama, McCain and neocons. Besides, Ukraine has nothing to do with a very far-away America. What if Russia got involved in Mexico and armed Mexicans against the U.S.? Would America accept it in a positive tone?
Catholic conservative Patrick J. Buchanan has asked an important question: Has Trump capitulated to the neocons? This capitulation seems to have become easier after the fall of his anti-neocon advisers hinders. Their fall hindered Trump from pursuing focus of partnership with Russia against Islamic terror.
In the last years, Europe has been invaded by Islamic barbaric hordes, and Obama and NATO did nothing, militarily or otherwise, to protect Europe from invasion. The most urgent need for America is to help Europe against Islamic hordes. Yet, NATO, which was created by America to protect Europe, has done absolutely nothing to protect Europe against Islamic hordes. America under Obama did nothing. And America under Trump has done nothing.
In 2016, Trump promised an alliance with Russia against Islamic terror, but as president his administration has surpassed all past Democratic and Republican administration in supporting and arming Saudi Arabia, the top sponsor of Islamic terrorism around the world.
Trump made a US$ 110 billion sale of military equipment to Saudi Arabia — which the White House said that it was the “largest single arms deal in U.S. history.”
And, it should never be forgotten, most Islamic terrorists behind 9/11 were Saudi. Even so, the U.S., under Bush, Obama and Trump, has flattered and armed the Saudis.
In contrast, the U.S., under Bush, Obama and Trump, has incessantly provoked Russia, which is much more conservative today. It is a provocation exclusively to please neocons.
As a conservative evangelical (conservative evangelicals were Trump’s main voting base), I support Trump in his pro-Israel decisions and in his pro-family and pro-life stances. But I cannot support him for breaking his 2016 promises on Russia and Ukraine. I cannot support him for amplifying the constant neocon aggression against Russia. I am loyal to Trump’s 2016 anti-neocon model.
