The Racket

War is a racket, and the wealthy elite who control our politicians know it.

They use people like Lindsey Graham, who is a true believer, to wage war against the imagined barbarian beast.

Yet the Russians are not barbarians, and, as was explained to me many decades ago, when I was a true believer, Russia is not a country of bloodthirsty Neanderthals.

Russia has contributed vastly to the arts, literature, physics, sports, ballet, and many other areas of endeavor.

Rudolf Nureyev was Russian.

Mikhail Baryshnikov is a Russian.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn was Russian.

Anton Chekhov , one of my favorite writers, was Russian.

If you’re a chemist, your periodic table was discovered by a Russian – Mendeleev.

What Russia is trying to do in Ukraine is protect its own integrity much as the United States would do, and has done, in a similar situation.

And as far as the argument of Russia grabbing land is concerned, the United States has no firm grounding in criticizing Russia.

The United States waged war against Mexico and in time confiscated their land south of the Nueces river, plus nearly all of the Southwest and what we know today as the state of California.

So who is the pot calling the kettle black?

What we have today in Ukraine is the greedy elite from the United States, unsatisfied with the billions that they already possess, desirous of waging war, killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people in order to make a few extra bucks.

It’s a racket.

Moreover it’s a dishonor to ourselves as Americans.
