They Say - 7 (Noam Chomsky)

Here are thoughts of Noam Chomsky, one of the wisest contemporary Americans I know, on Russian-Ukrainian crisis.

We can now ask a question: what was the nature of propaganda we were fed all those years? If NATO was there to defend the West from the Russians, why is it now expanding right to the borders of Russia becoming a global US intervention force?.. What it tells us is all that Cold War talk is a pure lie.
And here is the article from the Foreign Affairs Noam Chomsky is referring to: Why the Ukraine Crisis Is the West's Fault by John J. Mearsheimer, published in the September/October 2014 issue of the magazine. Their web site is generous enough to allow free reading of one article a month without registration, so you are welcome to visit and read.

And try to think different.
