Samantha Power, one of the key US theoreticians of the oxymoron of "humanitarian intervention" (remember Iraq, Libya, and Syria, for example), continues her effort to redefine "humanitarianism" in the most Goebbels-like way at the UN Security Council on August 8, 2014:
"The humanitarian situation needs addressing, but not by those who have caused it. That’s why we welcome the fact that the Ukrainian government has created humanitarian corridors ..."
Thus, according to Samantha Power, the assault of the junta on Donbass and shelling of civilians with heavy weapons and Grad, Uragan, and Smersch missiles is NOT the cause of the dire humanitarian situation. On the contrary, according to Power's inverted "logic," the junta's ethnic cleansing campaign is "creating humanitarian corridors," a euphemism for fleeing civilians to Russia under the junta's artillery barrage.
Samantha Power continues: "Therefore, any further unilateral intervention by Russia into Ukrainian territory – including one under the guise of providing humanitarian aid – would be completely unacceptable and deeply alarming. And it would be viewed as an invasion of Ukraine."
If you can, please read the above one more times or few more times to appreciate Power's twisted mind and the argument of a "humanitarian" Nazi. According to Power, Russia's humanitarian aid to Donbass would be seen (by the Nazis in Kiev or in Washington) as a military "invasion." Not only Power has exposed and refuted her own concept of "humanitarian intervention" as a fig leave for invasions of other countries by the US, she is also using the refutation of her own hypocrisy for criminalizing and demonizing any assistance, even non-lethal and humanitarian, to the victims of Nazi aggression.
Samantha Power continues: "A 'Russian peacekeeper' in Ukraine is an oxymoron: at every step in this crisis, Russians have sabotaged peace, not built it. And it is particularly worrisome given Russia’s purported annexation of Crimea, which was predicated on calls by an illegitimate, puppet government, for Russia to send troops to restore “peace.” Peacekeepers are impartial – yet Russia fully supports Russian armed separatists in this conflict."
I would say that almost anything that Samantha Power has to say about war and peace is an oxymoron for her speak is the Newspeak of the Orwellian totalitarian dystopia where ignorance is security, freedom is slavery, and peace is war.
Samantha Power continues: "We have seen the “peace” that Russian occupation has brought to Crimea since that time. As the UN’s most recent report makes clear, freedom of speech and assembly have been violently repressed, ethnic minorities systematically persecuted, and civilians abducted with impunity, 350 of whom are still unaccounted for."
The fact is that what Power accuses Russia of doing in Crimea describes the situation in the former Ukraine under the current Nazi dictatorship, only many times more and worse.
Samantha Power continues: "But Russia has it backwards. In fact, it is Russia that is trying to disguise a political crisis – one manufactured and exported by Moscow – as a humanitarian one. The very humanitarian problems that Russia is decrying in eastern Ukraine, and turning a blind eye to in Crimea, are directly traceable to violence it has facilitated or supported."
This decisively explains Samantha Power's rhetoric and way of thinking: 1) all she needs to do and does is to tell the truth about her own side and Kiev's junta and then attribute it to Russia.
Yet another proof, Samantha Power blames the destruction of the infrastructure in Donbass by the military of the Kiev junta on Donbass' own defenders: "Why have thousands of people been displaced? Look no further than the – quote 'egregious human rights abuses' end quote – in separatist-controlled areas documented in the UN report.Why do civilians lack access to basic services? The UN report documents the – quote 'deliberate targeting by the armed groups of critical public utilities like water, electricity, and sewerage plants,' end quote."
Samantha Power's next pearl. As everyone who actually follows the events in Ukraine knows, the international investigators had to suspend their work at the MH17 crash site because of the aggressive actions of the Kiev military. But, according to Power, the investigators fell threatened by the absent Russian troops:
"On Wednesday, international investigators were once again forced to suspend their work at the MH-17 crash site, due to risks of being taken hostage by illegal armed groups and the threat felt by the increased concentration of Russian troops nearby."
Conclusion? Samantha Power is a piece of something. In Samantha Power, Obama and his policies have their true image and likeness. And very ugly and perverse.
