I have a guess about the cause of the Ukrainian conflict. Consider this; while still the ruler of much of the world, Great Britain's deep state did all it could to prevent any European country from becoming a competing military and commercial sea power. This included fomenting conflict and war among European countries and between Russia and Europe. Fast forward. The waning world power US (or its deep state) is terrified of any alliance between Russia and Germany, as this combination would be the world power. In the last few decades Germany and Russia were growing closer. Solution? Create a conflict between Russia and Europe (of which Germany is the leader for all practical purposes). Do so by reviving the Nazi movement in Ukraine with a rabid xenophobia directed towards Russia and Russians in general. So we have the new ubermensch, the new subhumans and the new proxy war between the US and Russia. .... makes me want a hot shower. This is dirty stuff.
