Ukraine’s War ‘is a prelude to World War III’ Says Former Ukrainian U.S. Ambassador

OWoN: It seems the Cabal are determined to create WW III whatever the attempts to reason otherwise. The world needs to make it clear if this kicks off, every R and other Kazakh's left in America and Europe will be hunted down and sent to join those killed for their greed. No more wars for these Zionist Whores. If they want millions dead, start with them. Let decent people live. They don't qualify.

Perhaps the world should pay attention and ask whether this is where it wants to be led.

Ukraine’s War ‘is a prelude to World War III’ Says Former Ukrainian U.S. Ambassador

The People's Voice
By Eric Zuesse
29 December 2014

“This [U.S-Russian conflict that’s being carried out in Ukraine] is a prelude to World War III. A lot of people know this.” So says Yuri Shcherbak, who was Ukraine’s Ambassador in Washington during 1994-1998.

Dr. Shcherbak was one of Ukraine’s few progressives ever to become an official of the Ukrainian Government. He now is speaking out publicly for the first time to express his concern about the movement toward a nuclear conflict between the United States and Russia, and about Ukraine’s dangerous current role in helping to bring that about.

In 1998, he authored a book The Strategic Role of Ukraine, published by Harvard University Press; so, this is a subject that he knows a lot about.

On Monday, December 29th, he spoke on Ukraine’s Channel 5 television, to warn his country about the direction of their newly installed Government, one which had come to power in a violent coup on February 22nd and has spent its time since then bombing the area of Ukraine that had voted 90% for the democratically elected Ukrainian President who was overthrown in the coup that brought this new Government to power.

Dr. Shcherbak is especially concerned about the issue because of his intensive knowledge of “the strategic role of Ukraine,” and also because of his having served in Washington as Ukraine’s Ambassador. Dr. Shcherbak also speaks here as being a rare person in his country’s recent political history: an anti-communist who also is anti-fascist.

In fact, unlike virtually all major current Ukrainian politicians, Dr. Shcherbak was never a communist, and he was also opposed to the nazism that is represented especially by Ukraine’s Right Sector Party, and by Ukraine’s Svoboda (or ‘Freedom’) Party that had called itself “The Social Nationalist Party of Ukraine” until the U.S. CIA advised them to change their name to “Svoboda.” (Ukraine’s political culture has still not gotten much beyond the two Ukrainian political polar viewpoints: that Hitler-was-good-and-Stalin-was-bad, versus Stalin-was-good-and-Hitler-was-bad; and almost all of the exceptions to that polarity, the supporters of democracy and opponents of any sort of totalitarianism, are in the region that is currently being bombed. The CIA has always supported the pro-Hitler Ukrainians.)

Shcherbak (despite his coming from Ukraine’s ultra-conservative northwestern half) is an authentic Ukrainian champion of democracy. As such, he also is a respected international expert on the topic of U.S-Russian relations and of Ukraine’s role in that. He’s not just another person who has an opinion on the matter.

His full statement on this issue, as quoted Monday at the influential Ukrainian website, was:

“This is a prelude to World War III. A lot of people know this. For example, [consider] Zaporizhia nuclear power plant just 160 kilometers away from the [current] fighting. Can you imagine what a disaster might happen if it gets hit by a shell? Do we have an alternative to the Minsk talks [between Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and the leaders in the rebelling area]? Can we declare war against Moscow and conduct it by means of merely a swift operation? No. Because in this case the cruise missiles will fly from Russia tomorrow against Kiev.”

Channel 5 TV was owned by today’s Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko until he became elected by the voters (in the non-rebelling region) to become the President (over all of Ukraine) on May 25th. This channel, where Poroshenko had hired the producers, is generally regarded as still representing his viewpoints. Poroshenko is now being strenuously attacked by other Ukrainian oligarchs, especially by the U.S. White House’s friend Ihor Kolomoysky (a big financial backer himself of the extermination-campaign), as being insufficiently aggressive in exterminating the residents in Ukraine’s rebelling region. Dr. Shcherbak is saying, basically, that exterminating those people with increased intensity would be dangerous for all Ukrainians, not only for the ones in the southeast, whom the Government has been bombing.

When the European Union, immediately after the February 22nd coup, sent an investigator to Kiev to find out who was behind the massive bloodshed that had brought about the downfall of Ukraine’s democratically elected then-President Viktor Yanukovych and the installation of the new pro-‘Western’ regime which was replacing Yanukovych, the investigator found that even Petro Poroshenko himself privately admitted then to him that the masked gunmen were from their side, not from Yanukovych’s, and so the idea (being spread in Washington and Kiev) that Yanukovych was behind it was just a story for the public, not the actual truth of the matter. The EU’s Foreign Affairs Minister was shocked to learn this, then immediately changed the subject (since the EU is basically controlled from Washington).

Poroshenko is now trying to satisfy Washington and the American oligarchs who control it, at the same time as he is satisfying the oligarchs in Ukraine itself (of which he is one). Thus, for Dr. Ambassador Shcherbak now to appear on Poroshenko’s former TV station, when Poroshenko is quite possibly about to be replaced by a politician who wants to bomb the rejectionist region even more than Poroshenko has already been doing, might possibly reflect this intensifying political split among Ukraine’s oligarchs, regarding whether they really do want a nuclear attack by Washington against Russia — an attack from which Ukraine would be perhaps the major staging-area, and likely to suffer far more than America’s oligarchs. So, a split is opening within the international aristocratic order, as events proceed closer toward a nuclear attack.

The ultimate decision will be made by Barack Obama — or, perhaps (if after 2016), by whomever succeeds him. In any case, he has built the foundation for such an attack.



  1. John, Do we have complete code releases as a result of serious dialogue now from last Friday onwards ? Thank You. Where are we now in regards to a complete outcome ?

  2. No we don't and today I asked a serious Patriot to Shut Up certain Ambulance Chasing loud mouths and to focus on single tracking with DC without the mass hysteria of hook slinging Wannabes, all messing up completion, when a damned big Whale Harpoon is what they need. Too many non deserving causes are noise on the system and need cutting loose. A pack of scavenging hyenas need corralling. Two can't feed from a meal for one and too many, all starve.
    Too many basket cases need surgical removal. Scalping worked for the Comanche tribes. What happened to the We are Done 3 weeks ago lot again? This is the nuisance level we contend with while we try to complete off radar.
    We have finite funds possible, real world, so who gets what now has to be key. Iraq can afford $6T. Allegedly $600T has been issued. That's a lot of haircuts and wailing walls. Those who diversified fast can get clear. Those who chose not to, have expensive toilet paper.
    We are very cognisant of real causes. But also of serious misfits. In discussion now is firm but fair. That's all I can say.Money is finite and reality will rule. Mass expectation out there are retarded. Reality will sort it.

  3. All the best on those serious discussions firmly in place at present John. Thank you for the Real world Update. At times, I am in the frame of mind to do some scalping.

  4. Leo Wanta worked as a secret agent for President Reagan and was privy to many secrets. Leo dropped some major bombshells in the last month on Veterans Today Radio. One of them is perhaps the biggest of all! Leo knows for a fact that every Bush family member is prevented by law to ever hold public office! This happened when the Bush family grandfather Prescott Bush was convicted of treason and Trading with the Enemy for helping to fund the Nazis. As part of this crime and to protect the United States from future treason, a document was signed by Prescott that prevented any of his family from ever holding public office in the future! This document was storied in the Congressional Library. Somebody with the Bush faction actually tried to steal this document but was caught. According to Preston James and others at VeteransToday, this document still exists and will surface again in the future.

    Leo Wanta discusses this as well as the fact that every President since Reagan has been totally illegal and was done as part of a master plan to destroy the United States! They even changed the oath of office for the President! Learn the true history from somebody that was part of it – Leo Wanta!

    Go to the 1:20 Mark to hear how by law, ALL Bush Family members were never allowed to hold public office because of the treason of Prescott Bush! The evil forces tried to steal this document from the Library of Congress but were caught! This document still exists and will surface again in the future according to those in the know at VeteransToday!

    LINK to Video (Go to 1:20 Mark)


    Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) released the letter, asking Udall to use his constitutional protection as a still-sitting member of Congress to introduce the full 6,000-plus-page report by the Senate Intelligence Committee into the congressional record by reading it on the Senate floor. The current version is heavily redacted.
    “We, the undersigned are veteran intelligence officers with a combined total of over 300 years of experience in intelligence work,” the letter begins. “We send you this open letter at what seems to be the last minute simply because we had been hoping we would not have to.”
    “You seem on the verge of leaving the Senate without letting your fellow Americans know all they need to know about CIA torture,” the memo continues. “In the eight weeks since you lost your Senate seat you gave off signs that, during your last days in office, you would provide us with a fuller account of this sordid chapter in our country’s history, exercising your right to immunity under the “Speech or Debate” clause in Article 1 of the Constitution.”
    Hurry up already!!! It’s not like there are billions of people dying everyday or anything because of the Bush administration.
    This administration has to be exposed immediately.

    Lawsuit Seeks $1 Trillion For Fraud and Terrorism in Sensationalized Coverage of “Staged FEMA Exercise”
    Filmmaker and Author William Brandon Shanley Launches Wave of Lawsuits for more than $1 Trillion Against Big Media Over Sandy Hook Massacre Coverage
    Here is Mr. Shanley’s Statement:
    “After exhaustive research, the good news is that overwhelming evidence reveals that no children or teachers died at Sandy Hook two years ago. For relief, I have filed lawsuits against the media in US District Court in New Haven for Fraud and Terrorism. Here is an example of our abundant evidence, Exhibit D: The Connecticut State Police dash cams record no evacuation of children from school at critical moments: — Smoking Gun evidence no children died at Sandy Hook.”

  7. Historic Speech in Damascus sends Shockwaves around the World
    Posted by Preston James, Ph.D on December 13, 2014

    Last week Gordon Duff, Senior Editor of Veterans Today delivered an Historic Keynote Address at the International Conference on Combating Terrorism and Religious Extremism held in Damascus, Syria. This speech is sending shock-waves around the World.

    Gordon Duff was part of a Veterans Today Senior Staff Delegation that traveled to Damascus and was in consultation with the Veterans Today Board and other like minded individuals within the American Military and Intelligence community and other such individuals from sixty-eight different nations around the World who were at the Conference.

    This Delegation included Veterans Today Senior Editor *Gordon Duff, Veterans Today Managing Editor **Jim Dean, Veterans Today Director ***Colonel James Hanke, and Veterans Today Financial Editor ****Mike Harris.

    Gordon Duff’s speech quickly changed the focus of the whole conference and is now sending shock-waves around the World in the various Diplomatic, Military and Intelligence corps around the World.

    Why is his speech Historic? For a number of vitally important reasons. This speech is the first time in history an American Intelligence Team of “non-activists” gave a military briefing to an audience of this type, including key Military Leaders of diverse Tribal Forces throughout Lebanon, Syria and Iraq, along with a Russian delegation and many others from around the world. Before this historic speech by Duff, no one has ever dared to speak the simple truth about the true problem, that it is not Terrorism in the Mideast, but it is the effects of large scale international Organized Crime.

    Here is yet another Veterans Today bomb shell interview.
    The first 56 minutes is Stu Webbs contact Larry Nichols who was involved deeply in the election, and shenanigans, of former president “I didn’t have sex with that woman” Clinton. Nichols hates Hillary (what’s not to hate?) and is on a vendetta to ruin her presidential possibility. He says he has plenty of evidence to throw her to the proverbial wolves.
    I didn’t care for him personally so I didn’t listen to all of his stuff. Not only is he not the brightest bulb in the pack but his is a total racist and ignoramus in many areas.
    BUT, he does, maybe, have insider info to further bring light into the dark, cockroach infested, bottom feeders of politics…..
    Around the 57 minute mark Gordon Duff came on. Stu asked what he thought of what good old boy Larry had said. Duff has done considerable interrogation in his time and he said that before he says anything about Larry he will be interrogated…. Duff said: “…most people would rather
    get cancer than be interrogated by me”. He said it is hours and hours of mind numbing questioning.
    Some Duff info:
    -there is a media black out of VT, the paid for media is not allowed to even mention them or anything about them.
    -Duff will be putting out a major intel dump today or tomorrow. He always releases stuff to RT or Press tv first so that it is out there, and spies read it all there first.
    -Dick cheney, and other scumbuckets, have thus far been considered “protected entities” (ukdena says: hmmm, interesting choice of words). However, Duff, and others from VT have now gotten solid evidence that cheney was one of the major planners of 9/11 and other evilness. He asks that when it appears on the net that we all spread it far and wide quickly.
    Gordon left about 1:23 and Jim Dean spoke—also very interesting info.
    Gordon jumped back in about 1:42. Holy shite. He talked about Ft. Huachuca and how they are effin with VT and all the writers. He sent “someone” there yesterday to talk to the officer in charge…..
    I can’t remember if Gordon said the following or Jim Dean:
    Neocons are spreading even more lies (I am shocked :neutral: ). They are telling everyone that Obama is removing all “good people” from the military. LIE. Actually it is the Joint Chiefs of Staff and other higher up military who are doing it and then telling the pres.
    2 reasons for the military officer removals:
    1) they are security risks i.e. they have been compromised with “sex stuff” namely pedophilia. They are all involved in satanic cults….
    2)They were all “Israel firsters” and held extremist religious beliefs” that were a threat to the country.
    Duff said they are all traitors and should be executed not retired.
    Much more. (102min)

  15. We did advise the currency position can turn on a dime.
    We are working New Years day here with China at 06-30 for a reason. Watch your 2 sites now each day!. Also an imminent US Bank move via China is for a reason. Don't be panicked by Blog BS. It is "handled".
    Can't say more, if you miss reading your sites, your fault. Good luck. We will advise asap. Do NOT blog it to Guru Crap sites! Keep your heads. Key in and pray hard now. It may be close. Don't get caught in Grunt queues.

    1. Fantastic news John! Praying hard for your success.

    2. Can someone please get this urgent heads up to WHA to help make sure they are on standby now fast in case. Watch the site twice a day now it could be that close and fast. Its manic right now and China does not celebrate the Honkeys New Year.

    3. John,

      If these currencies go, is the US still looking at a collapse or will a solution be in place. You've mentioned several times over the last week or two about "when the US collapses".

      As a US citizen, it's almost impossible to do anything outside the country. Probably will even be tough to move money out. I'm just wondering if this will still be an issue and we should work on moving offshore with the placement of the funds or will these large banks be held up?

    4. Thank you, John. Posted at WHA.

  16. Happy New Year...Looking forward and wishing everyone a happy, healthy, prosperous 2015. My one wish...NO MORE WARS!

    The colossal scale of Cabal and Zionist criminality leaves America in a vicious circle

    1. get the flock out. Got it. Thanks.

    2. JV
      The Cabal and those Zionists are nothing short of terrorist...we are dealing with an isolated group of terrorist hell bent on terrorizing their own people and other nations...

      As I see it, any messages coming through SWIFT are monitored; and at best any large funds transferred in, unless controlled from the outside sources will only be blocked if not stolen? The markets are rigged and this includes the currency...until this system is cleaned out or changed money will be siphoned off of the average citizen's accounts one way or another...always by stealth.

      My friends are having the hardest time right now trying to sell their strip malls...I say this because the capital gains tax, and the new taxes within the Obamacare regulations makes it so that the authorities are demanding about 50% tax base on the sale...go figure...

      The collapse of the UsA monetary system will yield hyperinflation which is already in full swing. This is where our investments must be outside of this country because the dollar will only be worth toilet paper...we might as well use it in our fireplaces...

      No revenue producing asset is safe from seizure by stealth...

    3. Hence silver to carry today's value forward. Unprecedented demand for US silver coins these days, even 1oz coins! The 1oz will carry a high premium but still... every pay grab some. .gov cant confiscate silver bc it is used industrially - they can only confiscate gold. Silver seems the only easy way us citizens can store value. And it's damn cheap.

    4. AJ
      Good information. I read a report today that we will see silver shortly rise daily by $5.00 each day; and UsA government is confiscating gold through "Cash for Gold" programs that are situated in store fronts all over the place. Gold is scheduled to rise by $100 + dollars each day.

      The value of fiat currency couldn’t be made any clearer. The Fed burns 5,000 tons of fiat every year. It’s only worth something if you believe it is worth something.

      Gold cannot be burned and destroyed. It is worth something because it is rare, cannot be reproduced with a printing press, has been considered a form of wealth for centuries, and has always been worth something. Every fiat paper currency ever issued by corrupt government politicians and greedy bankers has ultimately reached its true intrinsic value – ZERO. Let is burn!!!

      Apparently taking a page out of China’s book, Factually reports the Philadelphia Federal Reserve office (apparently aware of the worthlessness of their fiat currency) sends old currency to local power plants, where it’s burned for electricity. As WSJ reports, The Fed destroys more than 5,000 tons of U.S. currency a year – most of it once went to landfills, but the central bank has pushed for years to go green with all that green. It appears we have come a long way from the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond’s 1953 annual report when it boasted it had “money to burn.”

  18. Here is a message from the Hopi Elders. It fits with what is happening.

    “A Message From The Hopi Elders”
    “You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour.
    Now you must go back and tell the people that this is The Hour.
    Here are the things that must be considered:
    Where are you living?
    What are you doing?
    What are your relationships?
    Are you in right relation?
    Where is your water?
    Know our garden.
    It is time to speak your Truth.
    Create your community.
    Be good to each other.
    And do not look outside yourself for the leader.
    This could be a good time!
    There is a river flowing now very fast.
    It is so great and swift, that there are those who will be afraid.
    They will try to hold on to the shore.
    They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly.
    Know the river has its destination.
    The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river,
    keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water.
    And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate.
    At this time in history, we are to take nothing personal. Least of all, ourselves.
    For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.
    The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves!
    Banish the word “struggle” from your attitude and your vocabulary.
    All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
    We are the ones we have been waiting for!”
    - Oraibi, Arizona, Hopi Nation


  19. Thank you Paul. You may like the big new report coming out overnight. It will raise key issues of Soul and your journey,.

  20. John,

    Your extra L for extra encouragement awaits you below!

    Much praying from me for the Team and those around the world supporting your dedication and commitment.


    1. I was about to wish you a terrible NY if the L did not follow. I saw the single and thought, Dam!

      Lets see if we can get the final accord next week. We have a number of major initiatives right on the edge. The major problem with the US is the sheer layers of mouths and thieving dogs to be satisfied. It is layer after layer of Made Sold Out Bodies all believing " Its my Right!". Collective scum who have floated to the top. Mediocrities who major in greed. This is 50 years of congealed corruption and sleaze. Think of feeding time in a Crock Pit. Even the Crocks have better manners. Some of the ugliest and most banal grunts in the world are now the Self considered Elites.No Class, No ability, No Humanity or ethics, just Made Morons in a chain of duplicity as Gatekeepers to be fed. It and they are ugly.

    2. Hahaha! Now I understand the 'extra L' in your comment to me! Happy New Year everyone! 🎈🎉🎈🎊🎈

    3. Good luck to you John. I have this gut feeling that we are almost done, so I know you guys can pull this off this month.

  21. Supremes asked: How long will you let Obama make it up?
    A team of constitutional-law experts filed a brief Monday with the U.S. Supreme Court asking the justices if they are willing to allow President Obama to continue making up the law as he goes.
    The brief by the American Center for Law and Justice asks the court to reject IRS regulations that illegally authorize tax subsidies for purchasers of health insurance on federal exchanges.
    The case is one of several that could create a massive roadblock for Obamacare. The law is written so that only those who obtain insurance through state-established exchanges qualify for federal subsidies.
    But the IRS, in violation of the plain language of the law, has allowed the granting of subsidies to people obtaining insurance through federal exchanges. A reversal could mean a loss of subsidies for participants in 36 states, where consumers would see immediate and massive rate hikes.
    The brief charges IRS regulations “are part of the administration’s ongoing efforts to rewrite or suspend portions of [the law], in violation of the separation of powers.”
    “This is another example of the executive overreach of the president,” said Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the ACLJ. “The IRS regulations in place are the most egregious example of the administration’s make-it-up-as-we-go approach to implementing Obamacare.”
    The regulations, he said, “eviscerate Obamacare’s goal of encouraging state participation and promote the federalization of this nation’s health care in direct contravention of Congress’ intent.”
    “This violates the separation of powers, and we are urging the high court to reject this flawed approach.”
    The brief states: “In extending tax-subsidies to purchasers of health insurance coverage on federally established exchanges, the IRS regulations rewrite a core provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (‘ACA’), without which the law would not have passed, in a direct assault on the separation of powers. Authorizing the expenditure of hundreds of billions of dollars in subsidies, as well as billions in penalties against employers and individuals, the regulations were promulgated with virtually no concern for congressional intent or the plain meaning of § 36B.
    “The IRS regulations were promulgated notwithstanding the administration’s own ‘indispensable expert’s’ recognition that the law limited tax subsidies to insurance coverage purchased on state-established exchanges.”
    The ACLJ argues there is no evidence Congress wanted to offer subsidies in states that don’t have their own exchange.
    “The law must be applied as written. That is vital to democracy. And if the law as written doesn’t work, it must be corrected through a democratic process, not regulatory fiat,” Sekulow said.
    The Supreme Court has scheduled oral arguments in the case, King v. Burwell, for March 4.

  22. Operation Northwoods, The 1960s Government Plan To Fake Terrorist Attacks On The U.S.

    At the core of the 9/11 Truther movement is the idea that the government staged the attacks to drum up support for a war. So much Truther evidence is laughable that it’s easy to dismiss the idea, but there exists a chilling reminder that the U.S. military was once all-too-willing to deceive and attack its own citizens for political reasons. That was the goal of Operation Northwoods.
    In the 1950s and 60s, the U.S. was in the grip of the Cold War and terrified by the threat of Communism. Cuba, a Communist nation right on the doorstep, was deemed such a threat that a huge amount of intelligence and military activity was devoted to finding ways to depose or assassinate Fidel Castro. After the failure of the Bay of Pigs invasion, these activities were collected under a CIA program known as Operation Mongoose, also called the Cuban Project. It was lead by General Edward Lansdale of the U.S. Air Force.
    operation-northwoods-the-1960s-government-plan-to-fake-terrorist-attacks-on-the-u-s2In 1997, the John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Review Board released a pile of records from the Kennedy era. Among them was a 1962 document titled “Justification for US Military Intervention in Cuba.” The memorandum concerned something called Operation Northwoods, a plan to create fake attacks on “friendly” defected Cubans, U.S. military bases, and U.S. citizens — all designed to appear conducted by Cuba. This action, known as a “false flag” operation, would be used to garner the public and political support necessary for direct military intervention against Cuba. And the plan wasn’t some crackpot scheme devised by a minor official – it was sent from the Joint Chiefs of Staff to the Secretary of Defense, Robert McNamara.

    The document also outlines an elaborate plan for a fake attack on the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, including suggestion number 10, “Sink ship near harbor entrance. Conduct funerals for mock victims.” The author goes on to suggest a “Remember the Maine” incident, referring to the explosion and sinking of the USS Maine that lead to the Spanish-American War. “Casualty lists in US newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation.”
    operation-northwoods-the-1960s-government-plan-to-fake-terrorist-attacks-on-the-u-s3Other measures include refitting an American jet to resemble a Cuban MIG, then using it for, “harassment of civil air, attacks on surface shipping and destruction of US military drone aircraft.” A fake attack on U.S. military jets involved cloak and dagger moves like quickly repainting tail numbers in a hangar while a submarine jettisoned burned jet parts and a parachute, all using a pilot flying under an alias who would subsequently, “resume his proper identity and return to his normal place of business.”
