The United States helped defeat #Nazism in World War 2. Today, Obama and Co. have ousted Ukraine’s democratically-elected president, Viktor Yanukovych, with the help of ultra-right, paramilitary, neo-Nazi gangs. These are America’s new allies in the Great Game, the grand plan to “pivot to Asia” by pushing further eastward, toppling peaceful governments, securing vital pipeline corridors, accessing scarce oil and natural gas reserves and dismantling the Russian Federation consistent with the strategy proposed by geopolitical mastermind and Al-Qaeda godfather, Zbigniew Brzezinski.

Helen Thomas, the dean of the Washington press corps, spent her career watching the Israel lobby destroy Palestine – and American democracy.
