Open the gate.. welcome to this dimension..
I've never been a Corbyn fan. I respect his conviction, but as a political player he is either naive, or has a 'tin ear'. He was certainly never electable.
I don't know all the ins and outs of his expulsion from the labour party either, but it seems a little 'thin skinned' to not be able to cope with dissenting voices.
I can agree with his assertion that continually arming Ukraine simply extends the real and propaganda war.
How anybody can claim that the west is not in a proxy war with Russia is a bit beyond me - if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck - then, yes indeed, it's probably a duck..
If Ukraine didn't have long range artillery (entirely supplied, funded and supported by the west) would they still be 'in this fight'? - probably not.
It's not at all clear what the "benefits to world's people" are by purposeful escalation of this to a 'hot version' of the age old Russia vs the West ideologies. Whilst at the same time adding in clear, and newly ongoing, propaganda that we're now apparently in a 'cold war' with China.. If you follow the money it's pretty clear who does benefit, but you cannot break through the secrecy and obfuscation to draw any sound conclusions about that (which is just how they like it..). Or is just the politics of fear (theory is, you've got to have an enemy 'to sell' to the electorate)?
With the benefit of hindsight over modern (20th century) armed conflict history it's very difficult to not feel that 'we're being duped again', and we won't get to find out what the ruling elite are up to for 30 years, when these contemporary records might be released..
buggered if I know 😛
