Ukraine on Brink of War with Russia? by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman) Ukraine’s military under US-installed putschist rule is notoriously dysfunctional.  Most of its lower and mid-level commanders, as well as troops, want no part of waging war.

Big Lies Drown Out Truth Telling

Big Lies Drown Out Truth-Telling by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman) All politicians lie, some more than others.
