On Saturday, British Defense Minister Grant Shapps raised the prospect of deploying UK troops directly into Ukraine, nominally to serve as trainers for Ukrainian forces.
“Particularly in the west of the country, I think the opportunity now is to bring more things ‘in country,’” he told The Telegraph.
“I think there will be a move to get more training and production in the country,” Shapps added. He also raised the prospect of the direct involvement of the Royal Navy in combat operations against Russia’s Black Sea Fleet, declaring, “Britain is a naval nation so we can help.”
UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak effectively confirmed Shapps’s assertions, saying, “What the defence secretary was saying was that it might well be possible one day in the future for us to do some of that training in Ukraine.”
A warning must be made: If plans to deploy NATO troops to Ukraine are being publicly discussed, it is because the decision has already been made, by a political and military cabal working in secret. They might initially be termed “advisers,” “consultants,” or “guards,” but the strategy is obvious: British “advisers” and “trainers” will be killed in Ukraine, and the Sunak government will use this fact as a pretext for further escalation.
The US-NATO war against Russia is being waged without public support. The NATO governments are engaged in a conspiracy to escalate the conflict behind the backs of the population. Publicly, they declare that they are not at war with Russia and that they intend to strictly limit their involvement in the conflict. Privately, they are contriving to escalate the conflict to a full-scale war between nuclear-armed powers.
Time and time again, the NATO governments have categorically asserted that there are “red lines” they will not cross, and then proceeded to cross them. First, it was sending long-range missiles. Then tanks. Then advanced fighter jets. Each time, the public was categorically told these actions would not be done, only to be informed months later that the NATO governments were carrying them out.
