After Two Years, Neocons Desperate For More War in Ukraine

• https://ronpaulinstitute.org, by Ron Paul

She was trying to make the case for Congress to pass another $61 billion dollars for the neocons' proxy war project in Ukraine and she was throwing out the old slogans that the neocons use when they want funding for their latest war.

Asked by CNN whether she believes that Congress will eventually pass the bill, Nuland responded that she has confidence that, "we will do what we have always done, which is defend democracy and freedom around the world…"

What Nuland is attempting here is what the neocons always do. They try to wrap their terrible policies up in the American flag and sell it to the American people as something reflective of "our" values. If you oppose another neocon war, well then you are unpatriotic according to their trickery.

But Americans are waking up to the lies of the neocons and more and more are realizing that there is no "we" when the neocons are trying to sell another war. It is "them." The "we" in the equation are the people who are being robbed to pay for what will inevitably be another neocon failure.

Does any American still believe that Washington was "defending democracy and freedom" when it used a pack of lies to get us into Iraq, where a country was destroyed and perhaps a million people were killed? How about when, after 20 years in Afghanistan, we managed to replace the Taliban…with the Taliban? And Syria and Libya and all the other interventions?

Was Washington "defending democracy" when Nuland and the rest of the neocons successfully overthrew a democratically elected government in Ukraine in 2014?
