Top 10 reasons why US should keep intervening in Ukraine


There are many reasons why the US should keep intervening in Ukraine. Here are the top ten.

10. We lost Crimea, so why not lose the whole country?

9. For only $5 billion we made a real mess. Imagine the mess we could make for $10 billion!

8. Hearing Victoria Nuland say “F- the EU” alone was worth the $5 billion. More entertainment, please!

7. If we don’t intervene, those knockout Ukraine girls will “leave the West behind” – and we don’t want our behinds left, do we?

6. Ukraine is Europe’s leading producer of two critically-important natural resources: debt and poverty.

5. The two sides of Ukraine hate each others’ guts, so why don’t we go over there and stand between them and let them both shoot at us?

4. The coup we supported was financed by Zionist Jewish oligarchs and led by Nazis, which presents an outstanding opportunity to continue to promote Zio-Nazi cooperation – bringing two old enemies together to make a fresh start hating somebody else…such as Arabs, Russians, Persians, and Muslims.

3. Fight unemployment, put Operation Gladio snipers back to work!

2. After our brilliant successes in Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq, what could possibly go wrong?

1. Intervening in Ukraine could solve a wide array of problems – debt, recession, racism, gridlock, poverty, drug abuse, unemployment, illegal immigration, partisanship, political corruption – by triggering World War III and eliminating the root cause of all of these issues: namely, human life.

    Mr Barrett you did it again… so much sarcasm …. is really like sunshine and D3…. good for health.

    John the retired guy who remembers with nostalgia the possibilities of rational discourse…like the one guy in Lord of the Flies.

    you remember the old joke What is the difference between communism and capitalism?
    “Communism is where a man gains power and uses it to exploit his fellow man.”
    So, what is capitalism?
    “Why, It’s just the opposite.”

    As Dick Cheney said in a speech in Louisville, in ’99, “Some say that business is a dog eat dog world. Actually, just the opposite is true.”

    Yes, I agree that the US of A is better than a stick in the eye, also better than some communist countries. But North Vietnam was communist, and still had more freedoms than the South. DRV, remember?

    saludos. good article barrett

    I’m not sure which is the worst, the cruelty of the Nazis or the Bolsheviks, the excesses of Wall St or the USSR. To me Putin looks as though he is heading towards totalitarianism, but I don’t think the west should support the regime in Kiev. It overthrew an elected government.

    I just think that America should get back its roots, the Constitution, and not get involved in foreign countries and their wars. With about 270 overseas bases there would be huge savings on closing them.

    If the Ukranians don’t wake up and see who the real bad guy(s) is or are in their country, then they will be in for one hell of a ride that will see their country plundered of its most valuable economic resources. After their country’s only remaining export commodities will be escorts and lap dancers.

    Over the top, brilliant, outrageously hilarious, but contains elements of deep truth on the flip side. A good laugh but exposes so much of what is really at play with America’s “Red Line” zio induced nonsense, and deployment of Al Cia Duh NATO/Gladio terror squads in a feeble, well exposed attempt to provoke WW3. Dr. Barrett could have taught Bill Hicks a thing or two and provided some new and original comedy material with a real bite. Please keep this original material coming. It is priceless.

    Mr. Barrett , with the discovery and trial excavation of a massive buried pyramid complex in Crimea that exhibits very strange aspects of energy and has been tentatively carbon dated to 65 million years as well as being built from same materials as Egyptian structures , perhaps the struggle for Crimea has cryptic overtones we don’t understand .

    Here on VT we see a lot of left wing talk, but the truth is that however bad things have been in America recently they are nowhere near as bad as a communist regime can make it. I am still not sure that WW1 and WW2 were worth fighting, but the cold war, yes, it was worth every cent to contain the Soviet Union.

    Communism is a cruel, totalitarian system which puts dictatorial power in the hands of the party, and the best weapon against it is a free and prosperous America which sticks to its Constitutional origins.

      Actually John, we are way better off than all African and Middle Eastern countries combines. There is nothing to complain about, we should feel lucky we live in the best country in our Galaxy.

    • Curmudgeon  March 10, 2014 at 11:49 am

      The old left/right paradigms no longer apply. The new Bolsheviks are on what was once “the right”. The “left” is only left by virtue of the new Bolsheviks being so far to the right.

      Russia today is not the Soviet Union.
      Had it not been for the “evil” Germans 70+ years ago, Stalin would have been standing in Calais wondering how to cross the English Channel.

      Left wing talk on VT?? Did I come to the right site? Is this Vatican Today or Veterans Today?

    • wiggins  March 10, 2014 at 12:24 pm

      And …dear John, it is coming to you real soon…WTFU.

    • John Kirby  March 10, 2014 at 1:19 pm

      Thank you Wiggins!

    • John Kirby  March 10, 2014 at 1:20 pm

      Crimea River!

      Hi Jim Galbraith and Judy Rollins, Thanks for the comments. I can assure you I am not on anybody’s payroll, I am 76 and retired. I am old enought to have seen at first hand the terrible ruthlessnes of communist regimes, and I suspect that Mr Putin (ex-KGG) wants a return to that kind of thing. It seems that there have already been murders of opponents and journalists.

      How to get America back on track? thru the ballot box I hope.

    • John Kirby  March 10, 2014 at 8:55 pm

      “Cry Me A River” sung by the beautiful Julie London, in the 1950s, an absolute classic. You can get it on YouTube. A bit off the subject but well worth hearing.

    • DaveE  March 10, 2014 at 3:53 pm

      Great comment. Most Americans have turned against the Jewish neocons on the right, but are still oblivious to the Jewish agents of the left, the Bolsheviks, for lack of a better term. The Dianne Feinsteins and Bloombergs and Schumers of our government who would LOVE to disarm us so we can’t fight their diabolical plans for us all. Straight out of Joe “The Little Jew” Stalin’s playbook.

      Of course, Jews can be wonderful people. Most of the Jews I’ve met consider themselves to be akin to enlightened slave owners. Kind, generous, well meaning individuals who would never hurt a fly, as long as you do EXACTLY what you’re told to do. Stand up for yourself and……. well…….. you’re expendable in their New Order.
