Why Kissinger Was Wrong To Tell Ukraine To Cede Territory


Politics, Geopolitics & Conflict

Henry Kissinger made headlines at Davos when he said what we suspected many of the more sinister actors were thinking for some time now: Ukraine should give part of its territory to Russia to end the war. It would be the most immediately easy thing to do. As Zelensky suggested upon hearing this, Kissinger should return to 1938–and stay there. Giving Russia a part of Ukraine (much like everyone did in 2014) would simply lead to another land grab in the near future. If the annexation of Crimea in 2014 wasn't a clear enough lesson… The West allowed it to happen, and thus Russia made its next move in the Donbas right afterward. That led to the current full-on invasion, which failed and has now been downgraded to the Donbas and a very large swathe of land connecting it to Crimea. Letting Putin have this Ukrainian territory would be a devastating strategy for Europe. Western nations carving up territory to appease one force or another has not worked so well in the past (the Middle East is one shining example).

Libya’s current interim prime minister Dbeibah has declared that parliamentary elections will be held by the end of this year. No one is holding their breath after the parliamentary-backed prime minister Bashagha set up his government in the Oil Crescent and showed no signs of backing down from taking Tripoli and forcing Dbeibah to step down.

    I think that by the end come back on the beginning. Unfortunately, everything started during the Communist regime. If someone want to look closely Krim was part of Russia. But they give this territory as a present to Ukraine. Everybody knows it.
    I will make similar parallel. After I word war British give Constantinople/Istanbulu to Turkey, not to Greece. Why, they know the answer.
    Unfortunately, no one ask ordinary people what they want, or does they want to live in peace.
    One victim is still a victim!!!!

    P.S. we can buy a cheap oil from Iran and Venecuele, but someone don't allow!!!
