The House of Representatives of the US Congress approved a draft law on the “US budget for 2018 for national defense needs,” approving the allocation of $350 million to help Ukraine allegedly in the security sphere.
In fact, this implies providing Ukraine with lethal weapons. Surprisingly, but the so-called “defensive character” of these appropriations does not mislead anyone: the United States is arming Ukraine for the purpose of waging war, not solving security problems. There is an absolutely obvious question: would the States care about the state of defensibility of a distant country unless they consider it their own fiefdom and cynically use for their aggressive purposes?
For the law to come into force, the US Senate still has to approve it, which is likely to happen. Nevertheless, the provision on assistance to Ukraine, which is not mandatory, still has to be approved by the US Department of State and the US Department of Defense.
Few people are misled by the true purpose of such help and its name, contrary in meaning to true intentions. We are used to such manipulative methods of opponents. It’s time to start a glossary of the true meanings of modern allegories. For example, “20 thousand peacekeepers” claim a meme, implying a modern Trojan horse. In conjunction with the $350 million allocated by the US for “security” this means ordering a war.
