Stephen Lendman: Ukraine “Flashpoint” for WWIII?

Is the crisis in Ukraine a potential flashpoint for World War III? Let’s ask Stephen Lendman, editor of the new book FLASHPOINT IN UKRAINE: How the US Drive for Hegemony is Risking World War III. The book features a stellar list of contributors, including such Truth Jihad Radio guests as Cynthia McKinney, John McMurtry, Paul Craig Roberts, Peter Phillips, James Petras, Mickey Huff, and more. With this book’s timely emergence, the alternative media has beaten the lamestream media to the punch! Ask for it in your local bookstore – it’s the first major book on the Ukraine crisis, and when the smoke clears it will almost certainly be considered the best.

Flashpoint in Ukraine provides insight into today’s gravest
geopolitical crisis since WW II. Possible global war looms.

Viewed from the perspective of Western mainstream media, the
crisis arose due to pro-democracy activists overturning a brutal
dictatorship, which led swiftly to Russian incursion into Ukraine and
annexation of Crimea.

Viewed from the perspective of the 20 highly-credentialed analysts
who have contributed to this anthology, it’s an entirely different
story. Obama’s pivot is global, in pursuit of unchallenged worldwide
dominance, leading to multiple direct and proxy wars. Neocon-
dominated Washington seeks to marginalize its Russian and Chinese
rivals, surrounding both countries with US bases. Ukraine is in the
eye of the storm, the crown jewel of NATO eastward expansion, the
last step in Washington’s drive to incorporate all former Soviet
republics and Warsaw Pact countries into NATO and install missile
defense sites on Russia’s very border.
