US "Started" The Ukraine Crisis, China Says, In Fiercest Official Criticism Yet


US "Started" The Ukraine Crisis, China Says, In Fiercest Official Criticism Yet

BY TYLER DURDEN

With the Russian invasion of Ukraine now five months in, China has issued its strongest condemnation of Washington's role in the crisis yet, essentially blaming the US for "creating" the conditions for the war.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry said further in a press briefing earlier this week, while the US could be pursuing peace and formal talks between Russian and Ukraine, it is busy playing "world police" while fueling the conflict - and all the while trying to confront China - according to the words of foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian.

 

His scathing criticism perhaps marks the first time Beijing has officially, and so bluntly, charged that the US "started" or "created" the Ukraine war, while also repeating the frequent line of the US stoking a "new Cold War".

The FM spokesman said: "As the one who started the Ukraine crisis and the biggest factor fueling it, the US needs to deeply reflect on its erroneous actions of exerting extreme pressure and fanning the flame on the Ukraine issue and stop playing up bloc confrontation and creating a new Cold War by taking advantage of the situation," according to an official transcript.

"The US needs to facilitate a proper settlement of the crisis in a responsible way and create the environment and conditions needed for peace talks between parties concerned," he added.

Zhao said that on Ukraine, China's stance in opposition to the US represents "an objective and fair stance and stands on the side of peace and justice."

The official also addressed the latest Biden administration accusations that the Chinese government is behind the scenes assisting Moscow in both evading Western sanctions and supplying military hardware.

The State Department's Ned Price again threatened China with a "very steep price", if Beijing is caught doing so.

Zhao responded, "We firmly oppose any unwarranted suspicion, threat and pressure targeting China. We are also firmly against unilateral illegal sanctions and long-arm jurisdiction with no basis in international law."

He urged for US officials to stop playing up bloc confrontation and creating a new Cold War by taking advantage of the situation," and to instead provide the right conditions for ceasefire and peaceful settlement in Ukraine.

Greece & Spain Quick To Reject 'Unfair' EU Proposal To Cut Gas Use

BY TYLER DURDEN

Greece, Spain, and Portugal are already among what's looking to be an ever-growing list of EU member states who don't agree with the European Commission's proposed 15% cut in natural gas consumption across the bloc.

Greek spokesman Ioannis Oikonomou told a press briefing in Athens on Thursday that the government "has submitted proposals and we continue to maintain that this direction can provide solutions.”

Regardless of the Russian supply squeeze and EC President Ursula von der Leyen charging that Putin is "weaponizing" Russian energy in an attempt to blackmail Europe - and to punish the EU over anti-Russian sanctions - Greek Energy Minister Kostas Skrekas stressed that common households and businesses would be the first to suffer across the country.

He said Athens would not conform to such a directive. See URL for more

THE UKRAINE PLOT IS THICKENING WITH GERMANY AND FRANCE BARELY IN LOCKSTEP WITH US/UK-LED NATO

I do not approve of any wars anywhere, including in Korea, Vietnam, NATO bombing Serbia, Afghanistan, the Middle East, Libya and Ukraine.

 

This article, “Shades of Gray in the Russia-Ukraine War”, provides an excellent summary of historic developments. It should be read for background. Zelensky was elected on a “Peace-with-Russia” platform. Despite the terms of the Minsk agreements, the powers surrounding Zelensky have been unwilling to talk to and negotiate about home-rule with the leaders in the Donbas region in East Ukraine, for eight years.

APPENDIX 3

One front of the climate alarmist war on fossil fuels, freedom and prosperity is the effort to force companies to state the financial “risks” the climate “crisis” presents.

This mischief has taken place not in rulemaking at the Environmental Protection Agency, but rather at the Securities and Exchange Commission and in political lawsuits filed by virtue signaling leftist Democrat State Attorneys General (like Janet Mills when she was running for Governor) and green partisan warriors like the Sierra Club, and 350.org.

The SEC rule is up for public comment and eminent scientists William Happer (Princeton) and Richard Lindzen (MIT) filed a doozy.

Titled “Comment and Declaration on the SEC’s Proposed Rule “The Enhancement and Standardization of Climate-Related Disclosures for Investors,”

it is available at Happer-Lindzen-SEC-6-17-22.pdf

This image shows Satellite and Balloon datasets, WHICH ARE NOT MASSAGED, consistency read lower temperature than the average of 102 computer-generated graphs, which are based on SUBJECTIVELY MASSAGED DATA.

The shown data is for a 45-y period

Satellite readings increasing from 0.00 to 0.45 C

Computer graphs increasing from 0.00 to 1.20 C; MORE THAN TWICE AS FAST

 

If you extend all trends to a 100-y period, the satellite, etc., warming would be less than 40% of the computer warming.

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/
