Six months ago the former German Chancellor Angela Merkel, whom I had thought the most trustworthy of European leaders, revealed that she had sponsored the Minsk Agreements in 2014 to deceive President Putin and to enable the Ukraine Regime, whose President had been handpicked by Victoria Nuland, US Under-Secretary of State during the Presidency of Barak Obama, to arm and train for an all-out war on Russia. Nuland, a rabid Neo-Con was taped using the words “Fuck The EU”.
Taking its cue from the unelected President of the European Commission, Ursula Von Der Leyen the
EU appears to be fucking itself with the governments of the sovereign states in the Union, together
with posturing “radical” “opposition” joining in the perverse and  pornographic contortions.
In October 2021, months before Russia’s incursions into Ukraine, the Foreign Ministers of Estonia,
Latvia and Lithuania were photographed meeting with the then UK Foreign Secretary, Liz Truss,
away from the Westminster limelight in her country retreat in Chevening. Estonia has Tallin, and
is welcome to it. On a Baltic cruise 10 years ago I visited the place for a few hours, nearly 25
years after the Soviet Union had departed.
A fanatical hatred of Russians was the only thing that impressed me. We Irish have every reason
to hate the actions of British Governments which still continue after nearly 900 years. But I have
never met an Irish man or woman who hates the British peoples collectively, despises England’s
language,literature , music an art.
The Ukraine regime is hell bent on the destruction of Russia.
President Clinton promised Gorbachev, President of the Soviet Union, that NATO would not 
threaten the Soviet Union.
But when the Soviet Union imploded that promise was not extended to the Russian Federation.
I hate to say this, but Bill Clinton’s intelligence and charm outweighed for most of us his foibles
and faults. 
The idea of breaking Russia is monstrous. And the idea of taking on China at the same time
is doubly so.
Ireland’s record in the League of Nations and the UN was unequalled for rationality, ethical 
principles and was crowned by the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
The Ukrainian Regime and its American sponsor have made that Treaty a Dead Letter.
And may make the Earth a Dead Planet

    You speak a lot of sense Donal as usual, but you cannot, nor never will convince me that Russia had any right to invade another sovereign nation. imagine what it would sound like for people in Ireland to try to justify the centuries long occupation of this country by big brother Britain, on the basis that some other big world power had welched on a deal with Britain relating to its security? everything else you have written Donal about the US, NATO and the EU is on the nail, but you will unfortunately never succeed in getting your square peg into that round hole relating Putin’s aggressive behaviour – victims don’t invade other countries.

    I’m inclined to doubt Donald’s version of this invasion. Unfortunately I don’t have the ability to present a coherent counter argument.
