Chomsky has been appalled by the war-mongering psychosis pushed by the fake news media, deep state spooks, and most of the country’s political leaders. During a recent interview, he remarked that one of the sane voices for restraint amid all of the lunacy has been Trump.
“There is thankfully one statesman in the U.S. and Europe who has laid out a sensible solution to the problem, which is to assist negotiations rather than undermine them and move towards establishing some sort of accommodation in the EU, in which there are no military alliances,” said Chomsky.
“His name is Donald J. Trump, the one and only Western Statesman…” He continued.
In their complete context, Chomsky’s remarks may be read here:
According to a former Ukraine ambassador who supported the removal of President Trump, Trump would have halted a Russia/Ukraine conflict due to his resistance to appease NATO’s expansion ambitions.
“Marie Yovanovitch, a former US ambassador to Ukraine under President Trump who supported impeaching Trump, recently stated that if Trump had been president at the time, he would have been able to stop the Russia/Ukraine war.”
Yovanovitch made this remark during an interview on PBS. She actually had the gall to claim that Trump using his diplomatic brilliance to prevent a deadly war from breaking out abroad would have been a bad thing.
“Trump was quite dismissive of NATO… highly critical of our allies, and his close confidants, particularly John Bolton, have stated that if he were re-elected, he would have forced us to withdraw from NATO, so why go to war if Vladimir Putin receives the United States’ offer of a lifeless NATO on a silver platter? So there’s that. But then again it swings back around because Trump is going to give Vladimir Putin everything he wants in terms of what I call ‘enabling concessions then perhaps Putin wouldn’t have invaded Ukraine,” Yovanovitch said.
Yovanovitch’s statement seems to suggest that NATO is the aggressor and that Trump’s “America First” goals have thwarted their aim to inflame Russia and push it into a war…
