Washington’s potential willingness to arm the Ukrainian military has elicited an unusually frank reaction from former Italian PM Mario Monti, who warned that Europe must not be viewed merely as “tool” of US global interests.

Recently speaking on private Italian broadcaster LA7, Monti warned that there was a definite risk of the conflict in Ukraine spilling over.

“For now it’s a limited war, but be careful, you [advocates of arming Ukraine] are creating among Europeans a climate of mistrust and mutual misunderstanding that could take us too far,” he said.

When asked how he felt about Washington’s recent proposal that it could send defensive lethal arms to the Ukrainian military, including anti-tank and anti-mortar systems, Monti said he believed such a move would prove “intolerable” to Russia.

“I believe that the United States does not always realize that Europe has its problems, and cannot be seen only as a tool of the global interests of the United States,” he said.

Monti also noted how the West had to make a choice in its decision to break with Russia, noting that it might be forced to pay a high cost while losing an ally “in containing terrorism.”

Long viewed as a technocratic leader and Brussels insider, Monti, who took over the reins from Silvio Berlusconi in 2011, has been a perennial voice of moderation in Europe.

His comments echo similar statements made by former French Prime minister Francois Fillon, who told public broadcaster France 5 on Sunday that the US was attempting to “unleash a war in Europe, which would end in catastrophe.”

Also on Saturday, former French President Nicolas Sarkozy said that Europe is part of “a common civilization with Russia,” saying they needed to avoid conflict on the continent.

“The interests of the Americans with the Russians are not the interests of Europe and Russia,” he said, adding that,“we do not want the revival of a Cold War between Europe and Russia.”

The leader of France’s rightwing National Front (FN), Marine Le Pen, similarly took Brussels to task for not forming a Ukraine policy that was independent from Washington’s position.

“European capitals do not have the wisdom to refuse to be dependent on US positions on Ukraine,” Le Pen told French journalists on Sunday.

“Regarding Ukraine, we behave like American lackeys,” she said, before warning that “the aim of the Americans is to start a war in Europe to push NATO to the Russian border.”

    Seems to me that there is plenty of evidence that the U.S.(and in particular, its people) have been used for a hell of a long time as a tool of Europe. One example of how the mechanics work is the recent piece about the Tavistock Institute. There are plenty more examples to support that reality but it’s really hard to know what’s actually real and what is not. Has U.S. has been used all these years simply as muscle for the those NWO guys holed up in the City of London? Now that all the dominoes are set up the US fulfills the Hegelian dialect need for a bad guy and goes under the bus, and it’s business as usual. No one really knows where the BRICS stand. If it is a case of “meet the new boss, same as the old boss” the smart money would pivot east” as it appears they are doing en mass, hedging their bets. You may understand that they are evil and hate them but you do have to admit that the NWO crowd is really good at the game.

    Will Obama try to go it alone? I don’t think so. The Obama cohorts/puppeteers are running out of normal False Flags and need something much more devastating to be America’s pied piper.
