Before I get into NATO directly, I’ll do a quick Ukraine update.

Ukraine Update

Next is a short video (8:22 minutes) of the front lines courtesy of WEEB Union. Since he publishes one or two updates a day, I’m using the latest at the time of my publication around 10:00 on the 25th. I’ve been following these reports for about a week. The front line moves back and forth as the Russians attack and the Ukrainians counterattack. The net result is a Russian advance.

There seems to be some realization that NATO countries sending increasingly heavy weapons such as battle tanks to Ukraine are an act of war. The West is realizing that despite their propaganda, they are losing their proxy war. Macgregor references the moves that FDR made to goad the Japanese to attack the US Pacific fleet causing WWII. He draws a parallel with the Ukraine.

The NATO Involvement

In 1991, NATO pledged to the Russians not to expand NATO (West promised not to expand NATO – Der Spiegel). This pledge has been repeatedly dishonoured up to the current invited inclusion of Sweden and Finland. As reported in ACURA ViewPoint: Guest Post by Branko Marcetic: Diplomatic Cables Show Russia Saw NATO Expansion as a Red Line, this is a red line that the Russians have finally confronted NATO over.

US officials were aware, or were directly told over the span of years, that expanding NATO was viewed by Russian officials well beyond Putin as a major threat and provocation, that expanding it to Ukraine was a particularly bright red line for Moscow …


The ACURA article reviews the more recent events between Russia and NATO.

Increasingly, it is being admitted that it is the US and NATO that are at war with Russia and not just Ukraine. The evidence to support this assertion is the massive amount of financial and military aid that NATO has provided Ukraine from before the start. This aid has been given to the Ukraine since the US-engineered coup in 2014.
