Learn With Our Own Eyes



A young man from Finland is now in eastern Ukraine reporting on the still on-going US-NATO war against the citizens of the region (Donbass).

The big question is once Hillary Clinton is selected to run the declining American empire what will the US do about the military stalemate now in eastern Ukraine?

As we know the US has been using the war in Ukraine to destabilize and demonize Russia.  There is no doubt in my mind that Clinton intends to intensify this dynamic so one would expect to see an escalation of the US backed Kiev regime's attacks on the Russian speaking citizens of eastern Ukraine.

The Finnish man says, near the end of the video, that the mainstream media in his country misleads about Russia and the Ukraine situation but he says people are beginning to open their minds and see that not all they are told is the truth.  That is a good sign.

Well, you can transpose Trump for Hillary.
I don't see much difference between the two.

As to his stated policy goals, they're chaotic but mostly are unattainable,once they're sorted out in a more or less coherent package. His disciples will probably be the first group he sells out. He laid out his policy long ago in his "art of the deal" which was, basically and thoroughly infused with greed. He said then that he wouldn't do anything that didn't make money, for him.

On the other hand there's the entrenched bureaucracy that wouldn't let go of their own control of policy, regardless of who their "Commander" is. And the vote was so evenly matched, and the polled voters before and during the voting indicated that about 30% of the people who voted for either did so because they were AGAINST the other. That's (since the numbers were about 49/49) Trump or Hillary had just less than 30% of the total vote being actually FOR the policy goals of either. That makes 70% of the voters AGAINST both sets of policy. And that's the voters.

The abstainers, how much of the population? I didn't count.

But as activists, anti-war or better yet Pro-Peace, we have a huge fresh field to cultivate.

Just sayin'
