The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. @BruceKGagnon

Kiev's Nazi forces attack Donbass since 2014

Since 2014 the US-UK-NATO armed, trained and directed military forces of Ukraine have been sent to the Donbass region of eastern Ukraine (along the Russian border) to kill their fellow citizens whose only crime is they speak Russian.
 
Since the US orchestrated coup d'etat in Kiev in 2014 more than 14,000 people have been killed in the Donbass and more than 34,000 wounded.
 
The New York Times reported on June 25 that the CIA (with allied intelligence agency support) has been directing the war in Ukraine.

So far the US Congress has appropriated  $54 billion for the US proxy war in Ukraine against Russia.

$54 billion and counting

When it came to a vote in the US House and Senate - all Democrats in Congress voted in favor of sending these funds to Kiev. Only Republicans (primarily in the House) voted NO.

The funding bills passed overwhelmingly at the very time our own economy in the US is suffering dramatically. The same can be said about NATO member nations who also have sent major funding to Kiev for the war.

The Rand Corporation study of 2019 calls for the 'Overextending and Unbalancing Russia'.
