If their is one thing that 2014 has taught us, it’s that Victoria Nuland is the equivalent of the grim reaper for US foreign policy. When she comes in contact with a country or world leader expect very bad things to happen.
Nuland’s next checklist task, in her “destroy Russia” neo-con project, may be infiltrating Belarus, and eventually causing the same type of $5 Billion USD destabilisation that she spearheaded in Ukraine.
Luckily, Russia, and the world, is on to Nuland’s game, and so warnings are now being issued, or in this case tweeted to Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko.
A senior Russian lawmaker has warned Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko against détente with the US, warning him he could end like Libya’s Gaddafi.
“Milosevic, Gaddafi and Hussein all tried to be friends with the United States. Their fates are well known. Now the US is offering ‘new relations’ with Lukashenko. This is a dangerous experiment,” the head of the State Duma Foreign Relations Committee Aleksey Pushkov wrote in a Twitter post on Monday.
С США пытались дружить Милошевич, Каддафи, С.Хуссейн. Их судьба известна. Теперь США предлагают “новые отношения” Лукашенко. Опыт опасный…

The comment came soon after US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland talked about a small improvement of US-Belarus relations, adding that the country was always open to more dialogue with Belarus.
On Sunday Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko met his Ukrainian counterpart Petro Poroshenko. He described the two countries as “neighbors and relatives” and pledged to do anything Poroshenko asked in just a day.
Lukashenko has said the Belarus people “should stop praying for Russia alone,” and ordered the government to find new markets for Belarusian products. It’s all part of the response to the short-term restrictions imposed on Belarus foodstuff imports by the Russian consumer rights watchdog Rospotrebnadzor, and also on the rapid devaluation of Russian ruble that prompted the two countries to introduce additional mechanisms to calculate the price of Belarus imports.
President Lukashenko, please don’t fall for Nuland’s trap.
