Scott Ritter: Desperate U.S. Regime Gives Arms to Nazis Against Russia Now


Eric Zuesse (blogs at https://theduran.com/author/eric-zuesse/)


Scott Ritter is the retired U.S. Marine who became a top U.N. Weapons Inspector in Iraq and who in the lead-up to America’s 2003 invasion of Iraq said that the Bush Administration had provided no credible evidence to back up any of its charges that Iraq had WMD after 1998. When then-Senator Joe Biden in 1998 tried to press Ritter to support the PNAC and other neoconservatives’ recommendation for the U.S. to invade iraq, and Biden said then that Ritter was “trying to appropriate the power to decide when to pull the trigger’ of military force against Iraq”, Ritter stood his ground against that pressure. Ritter has many times gone public condemning the U.S. Government’s lies for invading countries it treats as permanent enemies and as mere excuses to expand the American empire even further by additional conquests. 


Ritter was interviewed on June 11th about now-President Biden’s bringing the U.S. up to the very brink of nuclear war in order to defeat Russia in the battlefields of Ukraine, and the issue came up of how desperate the U.S. Government — both of its Parties — is to win this war, which Ritter now says that America and NATO are certain to lose or else to escalate it into a nuclear war that will destroy the entire planet. Here the topic arose of the U.S. Government’s now even making common cause with outright Hitler-admiring ‘Neo’-Nazis, arming them in Ukraine so as to stave-off this U.S.-NATO defeat (at least until America’s November 5th elections):


Here is the video, and the transcript of this particular passage in it:

11:22

INTERVIEWER: What is the significance

11:25

of the latest announcement to come out

11:27

of the White House, which is the

11:29

permission for the the

11:33

Neo-Nazis — some unique Battalion or

11:36

group in the Ukrainian military — that

11:39

have swastikas tattooed on their bodies,

11:42

that they can now use American offensive

11:45

weaponry — why would Biden do that, knowing,

11:49

as he should, the Russian memory for

11:52

history and culture and attitude about

11:57

Nazis? RITTER:  Let's just remember that this

11:59

current situation in Ukraine grows out

12:03

of the February 2014 Maidan coup

12:08

that was carried out by Ukrainian

12:11

nationalists, violent extremists

12:15

who are loyal to the memory of Stepan

12:18

Bandera, a Ukrainian nationalist ultra

12:21

nationalist. INTERVIEWER: Let me let me just stop you.

12:23

The American CIA worked with the worst

12:27

elements in Ukraine, these people you’re now

12:29

talking

12:30

about, Victoria Nuland and her folks

12:33

in the State Department as well, to pull

12:36

off this coup. RITTER: Correct. They pulled off

12:38

the coup, and now these people are the

12:40

ones who went into Mariupol and

12:42

terrorized the Russian population there.

12:44

They turned themselves into a

12:46

military unit they called it the Azov,

12:48

being the Sea of Azov, right off the coast

12:51

of the city of Mariupol. They are

12:55

100% you know, Neo-Nazi, they, as you said

12:57

they strut, Hitler, the whole thing,

13:00

they glorify Ukraine, Ukrainian

13:03

nationalist linkage with Hitler,

13:07

and it got so bad that in 2015 when

13:11

the United States started training the

13:13

Ukrainian forces, the United States

13:16

Congress passed an amendment to the

13:18

Defense Authorization Act that said

13:21

we can give money to Ukraine, but we

13:23

can't allow any of that money to be used

13:25

to train the Azov Battalion, because, as the

13:27

United States Congress said, they are

13:29

Neo-Nazi white supremacists, and we can't

13:32

support this, and the Congress passed

13:35

this amendment all the way up until

13:37

2022, when we started supplying

13:40

Ukraine with these weapons.

13:42

The people in Congress who signed

13:45

this Amendment calling the Azov

13:49

Regiment Nazis, when Republicans stood up

13:51

in Congress, said “Why are we funding

13:53

Nazis?” people like Jamie Raskin —

13:56

stood up and said “How dare you say there's Nazis

13:58

there are no Nazis” — he's the one who

14:00

signed the legislation that said we

14:03

can't give money to these Nazis; they're

14:05

the same ones that allowed Azov members

14:08

to come to the United States Congress and be

14:10

fetted, you know treated as

14:13

heroes, to hold auctions in the people's

14:16

House, selling memorabilia with the Nazi

14:20

symbology, so we sold Nazi memorabilia in

14:23

the people's House, to raise money for

14:25

Nazis which are what the Azov regiment is.

14:29

For the Ukrainians right now, the Azov

14:32

Battalion, which renamed itself because

14:34

it became too much of a political problem,

14:36

they're now the Third Assault Regiment;

14:39

they are one of the few remaining

14:42

effective units left in the Ukrainians,

14:44

and they are used extensively to launch

14:46

counterattacks and plug holes in the

14:48

battlefield. They need weapons and as

14:52

long as the United States prohibits

14:54

American weapons from being sent to Azov,

14:57

this unit would not be effective, so what

14:59

the Biden Administration has done has

15:01

said “no, we we're going to give weapons

15:03

to these people,” and it's not just them

15:05

it's now the Kraken Regiment which is a

15:08

Nazi regiment; it's the 67th Armored

15:11

Regiment which is a Nazi regiment;

15:13

there's other units of that nature, where

15:15

basically the the surviving mobile

15:17

reserve capacity of the Ukrainian Armed

15:20

Forces is 100% Nazi, and we need to

15:24

ensure that Ukraine has weapons that

15:27

can allow these units to fight. So, yes,

15:30

ladies and gentlemen, you heard me right.

15:32

A week after we celebrated the 80th

15:35

Anniversary of the D-Day invasion where

15:37

our American soldiers went over the

15:39

beach to fight and destroy the Nazi

15:42

scourge that had occupied France and

15:44

pushed them back into Germany, fighting

15:46

alongside our Soviet allies to

15:48

accomplish the same Mission, yes, this

15:51

America today is now deliberately

15:54

providing weapons to units we know are

15:57

Nazi affiliated.



I recommend the entire 26:30-long interview, because Ritter, as always, and consistently, is a master of his subject, and a hawk-eye for lies by his government —including even about America’s coup that grabbed control of Ukraine in 2014. Furthermore, it’s an interview that is well worth seeing twice.

Investigative historian Eric Zuesse’s latest book, AMERICA’S EMPIRE OF EVIL: Hitler’s Posthumous Victory, and Why the Social Sciences Need to Change, is about how America took over the world after World War II in order to enslave it to U.S.-and-allied billionaires. Their cartels extract the world’s wealth by control of not only their ‘news’ media but the social ‘sciences’ — duping the public.
