I'm no investigative reporter
Here's an idea for you, rather than you being so derogatory, maybe you can point out which parts of the article aren't true for me. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...

I always base my beliefs on evidence, its just its gotten a bit harder to do over the last 15 years as everything that remotely implicates the people up top is always classified top secret.
So that has the evidence bit covered, as for the reason part, petro dollar and America not wanting to lose its knack of getting everything for free at the worlds expense.
edit, I do realise you meant deductive process by your use of the word reason, but as you are being quite aggressive I thought I'd take the p a bit like you are trying to.
It's as obvious as day what is going on, but i'd like to see how others see it. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...
The US Government and the EU are as guilty as sin and more than up to their corrupt necks in conspiracy regarding Ukraine...their actions speak for themselves...discernment. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...
THE ROVING EYE
Ukraine and the grand chessboard
By Pepe Escobar
... Welcome to the Two Stooges doctrine of post-modern warfare.
Pay up or freeze to death
Ukraine is for all practical purposes broke. The Kremlin's consistent position for the past three months has been to encourage the European Union to find a solution to Ukraine's dire economic mess. Brussels did nothing. It was betting on regime change to the benefit of Germany's heavyweight puppet Vladimir Klitschko, aka Klitsch The Boxer.
Regime change did happen, but orchestrated by the Khaganate of Nulands - a neo-con cell of the State Department and its assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nulands. And now the presidential option is between - what else - two US puppets, choco-billionaire Petro Poroshenko and "Saint Yulia" Timoshenko, Ukraine's former prime minister, ex-convict and prospective president. The EU is left to pick up the (unpayable) bill. Enter the International Monetary Fund - via a nasty, upcoming "structural adjustment" that will send Ukrainians to a hellhole even grimmer than the one they are already familiar with.
The crucial spanner in the works
Last month, while the tortuous Ukraine sideshow was in progress, President Xi was in Europe clinching deals and promoting yet another branch of the New Silk Road all the way to Germany.
In a sane, non-Hobbesian environment, a neutral Ukraine would only have to gain by positioning itself as a privileged crossroads between the EU and the proposed Eurasian Union - as well as becoming a key node of the Chinese New Silk Road offensive. Instead, the Kiev regime changers are betting on acceptance into the EU (it simply won't happen) and becoming a NATO forward base (the key Pentagon aim).
As for the possibility of a common market from Lisbon to Vladivostok - which both Moscow and Beijing are aiming at, and would be also a boon for the EU - the Ukraine disaster is a real spanner in the works.
And a spanner in the works that, crucially, suits only one player: the US government.

That much is obvious, as you seemingly couldn't be bothered to read other articles in the blog. The "independent journalism" practiced on that site is suspiciously one sided. Every single piece is extremely critical of the United States, but not one of them criticizes, say, Russia's use of force in Crimea. It is a propaganda outlet.
