Eric Zuesse — U.S. Among Only 3 Countries at U.N. Officially Backing Nazism & Holocaust-Denial; Israel Parts Company from Them; Germany Abstains


More US soft power erosion.
Ukraine voted no on this resolution because this new Ukrainian Government is the only nazi regime in the world, and they are doing the standard nazi things, and so what they are doing is in violation of numerous international laws, which are not being enforced, but which are re-asserted and re-affirmed in this resolution, though Ukraine and the Ukrainian situation aren’t at all mentioned in the resolution. The United States voted no on it, because the U.S. Government had placed them into power. And Canada voted no on it because their far-right Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, has been a virtually unquestioning supporter of all U.S. foreign-policy positions, and wants U.S. President 
Barack Obama to approve construction of the Keystone XL pipeline to assist the Koch brothers and other large oil giants to profitably transport and sell to Europe and around the world, tar-sands oil from Canada’s landlocked Athabasca region. 
Germany abstained from voting on this resolution because their leader, Chancellor Angela Merkel, does not want to offend the U.S. President by voting for a resolution that the U.S. Government strongly opposes; and also because, as today’s leader of the land where nazism started — in the first nazi political party, the Nazi Party of Germany — she does not want Germany to vote against a resolution that condemns Nazism. If Germany were to have voted against this anti-nazi resolution, she would have faced a political firestorm at home. So, Germany abstained, in order not to offend Obama on the one side, and her public on the other. 
Key to understanding the vote on this resolution is knowing the relevant historical background, which has largely to do with the world’s only nazi-led Government: today’s Ukraine. Consequently, the remainder of this article will explore that issue in depth, so that this otherwise-incomprehensible U.N. vote will become comprehensible.

Tom I follow "Mr Neocon' Bill Kristol's Twitter since he started and he has never tweeted about Ukraine iirc. ...

He does tweet about Israel all the time though (supportive)....

So I dont see a "neocon" connection to Ukraine. .. seems like they are not interested. .. if . We define the neocons faction as being represented by Kristol.

I think this Ukraine thing is being driven by a different faction coming at it from the US political left.

It is an anti-Jew/anti-Israel faction of the left.

On behalf of Canadians, I apologize for the actions of Stephen Harper.

"Mr. Neo-Con" is Robert Kagan, husband of Victoria Nuland and a co-founder of the Project for the New American Century (PNAC): "He has been a foreign policy advisor to several U.S. Republican presidential candidates as well as to Hillary Clinton, when she was Secretary of State under President Obama."

Kagan is widely considered a neoconservative foreign-policy theorist.[19][20] Kagan describes his foreign-policy views as "deeply rooted in American history and widely shared by Americans".[21]
In 2006, Kagan wrote that Russia and China are the greatest "challenge liberalism faces today": "Nor do Russia and China welcome the liberal West's efforts to promote liberal politics around the globe, least of all in regions of strategic importance to them. ... Unfortunately, al-Qaeda may not be the only challenge liberalism faces today, or even the greatest.",,,

In 2003, Kagan's book, Of Paradise and Power: America and Europe in the New World Order, published on the eve of the US invasion of Iraq, created something of a sensation through its assertions that Europeans tended to favor peaceful resolutions of international disputes while the United States takes a more "Hobbesian" view in which some kinds of disagreement can only be settled by force, or, as he put it: "Americans are from Mars and Europe is from Venus."


Nuland was the US person on the ground involved in Ukraine, thanks to HRC at State. A leaked conversation between her and U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt. It was in this conversation that she famously, or infamously, said, "Fuck the EU," and Pyatt responded, "Exactly."
