U. S. Institute for Peace Chairman says we need Russians to die in Ukraine.

As former Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs in the second Bush administration, Stephen Hadley is well acquainted with the shoot first, then negotiate (if you really have to) style of American diplomacy, but his recent comments to a gathering in Poland go well beyond that, especially considering he is now the head of the United States Institute for Peace!

US ‘Institute Of Peace’ Chairman Wants Russian Body Bags

Stephen Hadley’s militant message in Poland was far from peaceful and advocates the complete opposite of what the institute supposedly stands for. It's just been revealed that the Chairman for the US ‘Institute Of Peace' was caught red-handed in Poland lobbying for the US to arm the Kievan military back in June. According to The Intercept: "In a speech at Poland's Wroclaw Global Forum in June, Hadley argued in favor of arming the Ukrainian government in part because that would 'raise the cost for what Russia is doing in Ukraine.' Specifically, he said, 'even President Putin is sensitive to body bags — it sounds coarse to say, but it's true — but body bags of Russian soldiers who have been killed.'"

This stands in stark contravention to everything that the institute reportedly represents, making Hadley a devil of war when he claims to be acting as an angel of peace. Not only that, but upon closer examination, one realizes how the ‘Institute Of Peace' (and many more organizations just like it) is simply ‘academic' window dressing for preconditioning the ‘naively enlightened masses' to accept controversial and militant government policies. Confronted with this disturbing reality, inquisitive individuals eager to discern the objective truth about the most pressing political issues of our time need to resort to a heavy dose of non-mainstream reporting in order to counteract the effects of such deceitful Washington-sponsored entities as the ‘Institute Of Peace'.

Hadley's warmongering advocacy couldn't have been more off-message from his institute's stated core principles and strategic plan. Here are some of the ways in which his aggressive plea violates the spirit of peace:

"Core Principles:

1. We believe conflicts can be resolved without violence

That's not what Hadley said in Poland. He continued from his controversial quote by further elaborating that '…when you're dealing with a Russian policy as we see in Ukraine, there's going to be no political solution that does not have a military element.'"

Are you someone who values the truth . . .

Do you genuinely want to know what really happened to flight MH17? If you can answer "yes" to both of those questions, please read on. If you can not, I politely advise you to read no further. Thank you.

MH17 Report Not Released As It Proves Russia Not Responsible for Crash

The facts don't support the US propaganda that Russia is responsible for the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 crash; that is why Washington is pushing a UN International Tribunal on the catastrophe to get what it wants, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts stresses. There is something very fishy about the fact that Washington and Kiev refused to release crucial data related to the MH17 catastrophe, while Russia, in contrast, provided all evidence in its possession in full compliance with the evidentiary requirements of the investigation, according to Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, a prominent American economist, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy and author.

"Washington refuses to release the information from its spy satellite that was directly overhead at the moment of the airliner's destruction, and Kiev refuses to release its communications with the airliner that directed the airliner to change course and to fly over a combat zone," Dr. Roberts pointed out.

"The Dutch or the Europeans, whoever it is that is responsible for investigating the downing of the Malaysian airliner MH-17, is unable to get a report released. What does this tell us? It tells me that the facts don't support the propaganda that Russia is responsible. You can bet your bottom dollar that if there was any evidence of Russia's responsibility, the report would have been out long ago," he stressed.

However, while Washington can block the Dutch report on the tragedy it cannot completely falsify it. Thus far, Washington is racing against the clock to push ahead a UN International Tribunal on the MH17 airliner in hopes of gaining the results it wants. In order to prevent its "frame-up," Moscow had to veto the resolution in the UN, and now it is accused by the West "of hiding its complicity in the attack on the airliner and opposing justice for Malaysia," Dr. Roberts noted.
