The US escalates its war of aggression against the Syrian people

The US’s shooting down of a Syrian fighter is just one further act of aggression as the US wages its terrorist war against the Syrian people.

The US is manipulating its people and global opinion by pretending that in Syria they are fighting ISIS (the so-called “Islamic state in Syria and Iraq”).  The facts on the ground however tell a different story.

This illegitimate coalition of the US and its allies operating illegally in Syrian territory and airspace has done nothing to fight ISIS.  On the contrary they provide ISIS with its air force, so that it can resupply unhindered its fighters, who are all foreign born militants.

It does so alongside the Israeli air force who also routinely attack strategic sites of the Syrian Arab Army.

The main war in Syria is now being fought in the east of Syria, as well as in the northeast and the southeast.  The US’s goals is to control the Syrian border with Iraq, thereby occupying the space which links together the Axis of Resistance of Syria, Hezbollah and Iran, across friendly Iraq.

That’s why the US led coalition has established its base in al-Tanaf in this border area with Iraq, where US trained foreign fighters operate under the false guise of ‘rebels’ or of the discredited and fictitious ‘Free Syrian army’.  In reality they are of course simply more foreign Takfiri fighters brought there by the US from Europe, Africa and other places.

Further north the same game is being played, this time with the so-called ‘Syrian Democratic Forces’, who are in reality simply Kurdish separatists,

ISIS is essentially a fraud.  It is a term used to justify a dirty game of creating militants, supplying them with advanced weapons, and then running a propaganda show about how they are being defeated by the gallant ‘Syrian Democratic Forces’ or “Free Syrian Army’ or whichever other bunch of stooges the US nominates to ‘fight ISIS’ on any particular day.

Left to itself Syria would have defeated ISIS alone or with the help of its allies long ago.  Instead ISIS has been preserved so as to justify the US’s latest imperial project in Syria: the land grab along the Iraqi border, and Kurdish separatism in the north.

The US is now building substantial bases in Kurdish regions as part of its wider goal of conquering and dividing Syria.  Tabqah in Raqqa Governorate is becoming the main assembly point for joint US-Kurdish military operations.

Meanwhile the US is acting to protect its stooges and advance its goals.

Thus the advances of the Syrian Arab Army and its allies to the Syrian-Iraqi border have resulted in threats from the US led coalition, with ‘warnings’ to the Syrian Army Arab not to advance towards its base at al-Tanaf, even though this is a base the US has planted illegally on Syrian territory.

This is because the advance of the Syrian Arab Army threatens the US-Kurdish plan to control Syria’s eastern regions, separating them from the rest of the country.  That way the US hopes to block access for Iran’s land and air forces to Syria across Iraq, whilst gaining control of Syria’s oil and gas resources.

ISIS is the pretext for the presence of the US and its allies in Syria, not the cause.

For all the reports of the Kurdish separatists fighting ISIS, there has never been any real fighting between Kurdish forces and ISIS.

Instead the Kurdish led ‘Syrian Democratic Forces’ have allowed ISIS fighters and vehicles to pour out of Raqqa – the city they are supposed to have under siege – and head for Deir ez-Zour, which ISIS is trying to storm.

If Deir ez-Zour is still holding out, and if the Syrian Arab Army is still advancing, it is because of the bravery of the heroic Syrian troops and the fact that the Russian Aerospace Forces are intensively attacking ISIS fighters as they leave Raqqa and head for Deir ez-Zour.

Now the US has crossed another line.  On 18th June 2017 the US led coalition shot down a Syrian fighter whilst it was targeting ISIS terrorists.

As it happens there have been many times recently when this same US led ‘anti ISIS’ coalition has bombed Syrian soldiers and their allies to prevent their advances against ISIS.  These attacks were justified with the pretext that the Syrian troops were ‘coming too close’ to the US base in al-Tanaf illegally planed by the US on Syrian soil.  Now the US is justifying its latest aggression against the Syrian people by claiming it has acted to protect its Kurdish proxies.

 The US is the most hypocritical country on earth when it comes to justifying wars against other nations.

It claims it is fighting with its Kurdish proxies to liberate Raqqa from ISIS.  At the same time it bombs the civilians of Raqqa – occupied and terrorised by ISIS – with white phosphorus.  Dozens of civilians have been killed and many more have been injured as a result of what in essence is a chemical attack.

White phosphorus does long term injury and its use against civilians is illegal under international law. However the US considers itself to be above all questions of law or morality, and above all criticism.   It is therefore happy to condemn others for using chemical weapons, when there is no evidence they have done so, whilst it uses them itself in the form of white phosphorus to attack civilians in densely populated areas of Raqqa and Mosul.  Meanwhile the actual fighting against ISIS in these places is being done by Syrian and Iraqi troops.

Whilst the US commits atrocities against civilians in Raqqa and Mosul, ISIS has just committed more atrocities of its own.

In Aqareb, a village in Hama Governate, ISIS has just slaughtered women and children after first torturing them with advanced weapons made in Europe.  They did so at the same time that the US backed ‘moderate rebels’ launched missiles at children playing in a playground in the Dara’a suburb of Al-Kashef.

ISIS and the so-called ‘rebels’ are in reality the same militants who have been supplied with advanced Western and Israeli weapons in order to inflict genocide on the Syrian people even as the United Nations looks on and does nothing.

However when the US want a pretext for another attack, a false flag is ready, and usually comes in the form of a faked chemical attack.

Thus we hear silence when the US launches white phosphorus against Syrians and Iraqis in Raqqa and Mosul, but when they need an excuse to bomb a Syrian airbase the accusation of a Syrian chemical attack is ready to hand.

To be clear: the US and those who serve its agenda are the only ones who have and use chemical weapons in Iraq and Syria, just as they are the only ones who so lack basic  principles of morality as to be prepared to use them against civilians.  That of course is what happened in April in Idleb, and that is what is happening in Raqqa and Mosul now.

The US’s aim is to destroy Syria, the one country which has resisted the aggression and expansionism of Israel.

The US seeks to break up this country for the benefit of its Kurdish proxies in the north and east, so that Syria can be isolated from Europe in the north, and from its allies in the east.  The US plans to bring Syria’s oil resources in Deir Al Zour and in the eastern desert under the control of its proxy militias, depriving Syria of its wealth, and isolating Syria from Iran.

However things are not going the US’s way.  Today the Syrian Arab Army captured the key town of Al Rassafa in Raqqa, cutting ISIS’s route from Raqqa to Deir ez-Zour.  May be that is the turn of the tide.  All Syrians hope so!

Meanwhile, as it plays its game in Syria, written in the blood of the Syrian people, the US is helping itself to the money of its ‘allies’ of the Gulf Cooperation Council.

Donald Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia was really just an excuse to appropriate more of their wealth.  Not coincidentally, shortly after the fight between Qatar and Saudi Arabia began. How ironic that both Saudi Arabia and Qatar were and are partners in the shedding of Syrian blood!  The silver lining for Syrians is that the Saudis have now started to expose the extent to which their ‘brothers’ in Qatar have been funding and sending Takfiri terrorists to Syria – the same  terrorists incidentally who the western media call ‘moderates’.

In truth the US has long since lost its feelings for humanity. Yemen suffers under the weight of Saudi crimes, including  cluster bombs, chemical weapons and an artificially created famine. People die there every day.  President Trump – who said he cared so much about Syrian children – has nothing to say as children in Yemen suffer bombing, starvation and cholera care of his Saudi friends.  He is far more interested in selling his Saudi friends expensive weapons.

For Syria these are tragic times. Since the beginning of the so called “Revolution”  in 2011 we have lost our peace and all sense of the true value of human life.  The things we have to put up with every day are horrible. The ‘rebels’ are no better than monsters, trained by the CIA, who use religion as a cover so that people in the West can be fooled into thinking that Syrians are killing each other over religion, when the truth is totally different.

At the same time the US pretends that it is here to protect Syrians and to prevent terrorists fleeing to the West.  In reality it is the US which is leading the terrorist onslaught which has destroyed our life and turned it into a horror. Yet the Western media not only conceals this but still likes to pretend that the monsters the US has unleashed on us are ‘moderates’.  They kill, kidnap, rape and bomb, but for the West they are still ‘moderates’.

The US should get out of our region.  We have a right – like all people do – to live in peace.

Every Syrian knows that these terrorists, whatever name they call themselves, be it Nusra Front, Free Syrian Army, ISIS, Jaish Al Islam etc, are nothing more than forces serving the interests of the US led coalition in Syria, and that they act under the guidance of foreign military officers from places as close to us as Turkey and as far from us as Britain and France.

This is an international conflict: Turkey is in the north, the US and its European allies are in the east and south, even Norway has now sent troops to Syria!  On the southern front everything is being done in coordination with Israel, and they use their most advanced technology to supply these terrorists not just with weapons but with accurate intelligence.

This today is the tragic reality of Syria.

The real reason Western media & CIA turned against Saudi MBS

The problem with MBS isn’t that he is a mass murdering war criminal, it is that he is too “independent” for the United States’ liking.

RT

Published

on

By

Via RT…


Forces are aligning against Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince, lead by elements within the CIA and strong players in the mainstream media. But what is really behind this deterioration in relationship, and what are its implications?

Following the brutal murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, western media and various entities, including the CIA, appear to have turned their back on Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman (MBS). In response to the scandal, the Guardian released a video which its celebutante, Owen Jones, captioned“Saudi Arabia is one of the biggest threats on Earth. Time to stop propping up its repulsive regime.”

The Guardian was not alone in its condemnation. “It’s high time to end Saudi impunity,” wrote Hana Al-Khamri in Al-Jazeera. “It’s time for Saudi Arabia to tell the truth on Jamal Khashoggi,” the Washington Post’s Editorial Board argued. Politico called it “the tragedy of Jamal Khashoggi.”

Even shadowy think-tanks like the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Atlantic Council released articles criticising Saudi Arabia in the wake of Khashoggi’s death.

A number of companies began backing away from Saudi money after the journalist’s death, including the world’s largest media companies such as the New York Times, the Economist’s editor-in-chief Zanny Minton Beddoes, Arianna Huffington, CNN, CNBC, the Financial Times, Bloomberg, Google Cloud CEO, just to name a few.

The CIA concluded that MBS personally ordered Khashoggi’s death, and was reportedly quite open in its provision of this assessment. Antonio Guterres, secretary-general of the UN, also took time out of his schedule to express concern over Saudi Arabia’s confirmation of the killing.

At the time of the scandal, former CIA director John Brennan went on MSNBC to state that the Khashoggi’s death would be the downfall of MBS. Furthermore, the US Senate just voted in favour of ending American involvement in Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen (a somewhat symbolic victory, though this is a topic for another article), but nonetheless was a clear stab at MBS personally.

The only person who appeared to continue to uphold America’s unfaltering support for MBS, even after all the publicly made evidence against MBS, was the US president himself. So after years of bombarding Yemen, sponsoring terror groups across the Middle East, Asia, the Pacific and beyond, why is it only now that there has been mounting opposition to Saudi Arabia’s leadership? Let’s just bear in mind that western media had spent years investing in a heavy PR campaign to paint MBS as a “reformer.”

Former national security adviser under Barack Obama’s second term, Susan Rice, wrote an article in the New York Times, in which she called MBS a “partner we can’t depend on.” Rice concludes that MBS is “not and can no longer be viewed as a reliable partner of the United States and our allies.” But why is this? Is it because MBS is responsible for some of the most egregious human rights abuses inside his own kingdom as well as in Yemen? Is it because of MBS’ support for groups such as ISIS and al-Qaeda? No, according to Rice, we “should not rupture our important relationship with the kingdom, but we must make it clear it cannot be business as usual so long as Prince Mohammad continues to wield unlimited power.”

One will observe that the latter segment of Rice’s article almost mirrors former CIA director Brennan’s word on MSNBC word for word who stated that:

“I think ultimately this is going to come out. And it’s very important for us to maintain the relations with Saudi Arabia. And if it’s Mohammed bin Salman who’s the cancer here, well, we need to be able to find ways to eliminate the cancer and to move forward with this relationship that is critical to regional stability and our national interests.”

In reality, this is probably the issue that western media and government advisors have taken up with MBS. Aside from the fact he allegedly held a huge hand in the brutal murder of one of their own establishment journalists (Saudi Arabia reportedly tortured and killed another journalist not long after Khashoggi, but western media was eerily silent on this incident) MBS is not opposed for his reckless disregard for human rights. With insight into Rice’s mindset, we actually learn that if the US were to punish MBS, he would be likely to “behave more irresponsibly to demonstrate his independence and exact retribution against his erstwhile Western partners.”

You see, the problem with MBS isn’t that he is a mass murdering war criminal, it is that he is too “independent” for the United States’ liking.

Last week, Saudi Arabia and the other major oil producers met in Vienna at the year’s final big OPEC meeting of the year. As Foreign Policy notes, Saudi Arabia remains the largest oil producer inside OPEC but has to contend with the US and Russia who are “pumping oil at record levels.” Together, the three countries are the world’s biggest oil producers, meaning any coordinated decision made between these three nations can be somewhat monumental.

However, it appears that one of these three nations will end up drawing the short end of the stick as the other two begin forming a closer alliance. As Foreign Policy explains:

“But Saudi Arabia has bigger game in mind at Vienna than just stabilizing oil prices. Recognizing that it can’t shape the global oil market by itself anymore but rather needs the cooperation of Russia, Saudi Arabia is hoping to formalize an ad hoc agreement between OPEC and Moscow that began in 2016, a time when dirt-cheap oil also posed a threat to oil-dependent regimes. That informal agreement expires at the end of the year, but the Saudis would like to make Russia’s participation with the cartel more permanent.”

Russian officials have been signalling their intention to formalise this agreement for quite some time now. Given the hysteria in western media about any and all things Russian, it is not too much of a stretch to suggest that this is the kind of news that is not sitting too well with the powers-that-be.

Earlier this year, Russia and Saudi Arabia announced that it would “institutionalize” the two-year-old bilateral agreement to coordinate oil production targets in order to maintain an edge on the global market.

While US president Trump has been supportive and incredibly defensive of MBS during this “crisis”, the truth is that the US only has itself to blame. It was not all too long ago that Trump announced that he had told Saudi King Salman that his kingdom would not last two weeks without US support.

Saudi Arabia is learning for themselves quite quickly that, ultimately, it may pay not to have all its eggs in one geopolitical superpower basket.

Saudi Arabia has been increasingly interested in Moscow since King Salman made a historic visit to Moscow in October 2017. While Trump has openly bragged about his record-breaking arms deals with the Saudis, the blunt truth is that the $110 billion arms agreements were reportedly only ever letters of interest or intent, but not actual contracts. As such, the US-Saudi arms deal is still yet to be locked in, all the while Saudi Arabia is negotiating with Russia for its S-400 air defence system. This is, as the Washington Post notes, despite repeated US requests to Saudi Arabia for it disavow its interest in Russia’s arms.

The economic threat that an “independent” Saudi Arabia under MBS’ leadership poses to Washington runs deeper than meets the eye and may indeed have a domino effect. According to CNN, Russia and Saudi Arabia “are engaged in an intense battle over who will be the top supplier to China, a major energy importer with an insatiable appetite for crude.”

The unveiling of China’s petro-yuan poses a major headache for Washington and its control over Saudi Arabia as well.According to Carl Weinberg, chief economist and managing director at High-Frequency Economics, China will “compel”Saudi Arabia to trade oil in Chinese yuan instead of US dollars. One must bear in mind that China has now surpassed the US as the “biggest oil importer on the planet,” these direct attacks on the US dollar will have huge implications for its current world reserve status.

If Saudi Arabia jumps on board China’s petro-yuan, the rest of OPEC will eventually follow, and the US might be left with no choice but to declare all of these countries in need of some vital freedom and democracy.

Therefore, ousting MBS and replacing him with a Crown Prince who doesn’t stray too far from the tree that is US imperialism may put a dent in pending relationships with Saudi Arabia and Washington’s adversaries, Russia and China.

Once we get over the certainty that the US media and the CIA are not against MBS for his long-list of human rights abuses, the question then becomes: why – why now, and in this manner, have they decided to put the spotlight on MBS and expose him exactly for what he is.

Clearly, the driving force behind this media outrage is a bit more complex than first meets the eye.

The Indiscreet Charm of the Gilets Jaunes

Nothing scares the Identity Politics Left quite like an actual working class uprising.

Published

Authored (satirically) by CJ Hopkins via The Unz Review:


So it appears the privatization of France isn’t going quite as smoothly as planned. As I assume you are aware, for over a month now, the gilets jaunes (or “yellow vests”), a multiplicitous, leaderless, extremely pissed off, confederation of working class persons, have been conducting a series of lively protests in cities and towns throughout the country to express their displeasure with Emmanuel Macron and his efforts to transform their society into an American-style neo-feudal dystopia. Highways have been blocked, toll booths commandeered, luxury automobiles set on fire, and shopping on the Champs-Élysées disrupted. What began as a suburban tax revolt has morphed into a bona fide working class uprising.

It took a while for “the Golden Boy of Europe” to fully appreciate what was happening. In the tradition of his predecessor, Louis XVI, Macron initially responded to the gilets jaunes by inviting a delegation of Le Monde reporters to laud his renovation of the Elysée Palace, making the occasional condescending comment, and otherwise completely ignoring them. That was back in late November. Last Saturday, he locked down central Paris, mobilized a literal army of riot cops, “preventatively arrested” hundreds of citizens, including suspected “extremist students,” and sent in the armored military vehicles.

The English-language corporate media, after doing their best not to cover these protests (and, instead, to keep the American and British publics focused on imaginary Russians), have been forced to now begin the delicate process of delegitimizing the gilets jaunes without infuriating the the entire population of France and inciting the British and American proletariats to go out and start setting cars on fire. They got off to a bit of an awkward start.

For example, this piece by Angelique Chrisafis, The Guardian‘s Paris Bureau Chief, and her Twitter feed from the protests last Saturday. Somehow (probably a cock-up at headquarters), The Guardian honchos allowed Chrisafis to do some actual propaganda-free reporting (and some interviews with actual protesters) before they caught themselves and replaced her with Kim Willsher, who resumed The Guardian‘s usual neoliberal establishment-friendly narrative, which, in this case, entailed dividing the protesters into “real” gilets jaunes and “fake” gilet jaunes, and referring to the latter fictional group as “thuggish, extremist political agitators.”

By Sunday, the corporate media were insinuating that diabolical Russian Facebook bots had brainwashed the French into running amok, because who else could possibly be responsible? Certainly not the French people themselves! The French, as every American knows, are by nature a cowardly, cheese-eating people, who have never overthrown their rightful rulers, or publicly beheaded the aristocracy. No, the French were just sitting there, smoking like chimneys, and otherwise enjoying their debt-enslavement and the privatization of their social democracy, until they unsuspectingly logged onto Facebook and … BLAMMO, the Russian hackers got them!

Bloomberg is reporting that French authorities have opened a probe into Russian interference (in the middle of which report, for no apparent reason, a gigantic photo of Le Pen is featured, presumably just to give it that “Nazi” flavor). According to “analysis seen by The Times,” Russia-linked social media accounts have been “amplifying” the “chaos” and “violence” by tweeting photos of gilets jaunes who the French police have savagely beaten or gratuitiously shot with “less-than-lethal projectiles.” “Are nationalists infiltrating the yellow vests?” the BBC Newsnight producers are wondering. According to Buzzfeed’s Ryan Broderick, “a beast born almost entirely from Facebook” is slouching toward … well, I’m not quite sure, the UK or even, God help us, America! And then there’s Max Boot, who is convinced he is being personally persecuted by Russian agents like Katie Hopkins, James Woods, Glenn Greenwald, and other high-ranking members of a worldwide conspiracy Boot refers to as the “Illiberal International” (but which regular readers of my column will recognize as the “Putin-Nazis“).

And, see, this is the problem the corporate media (and other staunch defenders of global neoliberalism) are facing with these gilets jaunes protests. They can’t get away with simply claiming that what is happening is not a working class uprising, so they have been forced to resort to these blatant absurdities. They know they need to delegitimize the gilets jaunes as soon as possible — the movement is already starting to spread — but the “Putin-Nazi” narrative they’ve been using on Trump, Corbyn, and other “populists” is just not working.

No one believes the Russians are behind this, not even the hacks who are paid to pretend they do. And the “fascism” hysteria is also bombing. Attempts to portray the gilets jaunes as Le Pen-sponsored fascists blew up in their faces. Obviously, the far-Right are part of these protests, as they would be in any broad working class uprising, but there are far too many socialists and anarchists (and just regular pissed-off working class people) involved for the media to paint them all as “Nazis.”

Which is not to say that the corporate media and prominent public intellectuals like Bernard-Henri Lévy will not continue to hammer away at the “fascism” hysteria, and demand that the “good” and “real” gilets jaunes suspend their protests against Macron until they have completely purged their movement of “fascists,” and “extremists,” and other dangerous elements, and have splintered it into a number of smaller, antagonistic ideological factions that can be more easily neutralized by the French authorities … because that’s what establishment intellectuals do.

We can expect to hear this line of reasoning, not just from establishment intellectuals like Lévy, but also from members of the Identity Politics Left, who are determined to prevent the working classes from rising up against global neoliberalism until they have cleansed their ranks of every last vestige of racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, transphobia, and so on. These leftist gatekeepers have been struggling a bit to come up with a response to the gilets jaunes … a response that doesn’t make them sound like hypocrites. See, as leftists, they kind of need to express their support for a bona fide working class uprising. At the same time, they need to delegitimize it, because their primary adversaries are fascism, racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, and assorted other isms and phobias, not the neoliberal ruling classes.

Nothing scares the Identity Politics Left quite like an actual working class uprising. Witnessing the furious unwashed masses operating out there on their own, with no decent human restraint whatsoever, Identity Politics Leftists feel a sudden overwhelming urge to analyze, categorize, organize, sanitize, and otherwise correct and control them.

They can’t accept the fact that the actual, living, breathing working classes are messy, multiplicitous, inconsistent, and irreducible to any one ideology. Some of them are racists. Some are fascists. Others are communists, socialists, and anarchists. Many have no idea what they are, and don’t particularly care for any of these labels.This is what the actual working classes are … a big, contradictory collection of people who, in spite of all their differences, share one thing in common, that they are being screwed over by the ruling classes. I don’t know about you, but I consider myself one of them.

Where we go from here is anyone’s guess. According to The Guardian, as I am sitting here writing this, the whole of Europe is holding its breath in anticipation of the gilets jaunes’ response to Macron’s most recent attempt to appease them, this time with an extra hundred Euros a month, some minor tax concessions, and a Christmas bonus.

Something tells me it’s not going to work, but even if it does, and the gilets jaunes uprising ends, this messy, Western “populist” insurgency against global neoliberalism has clearly entered a new phase. Count on the global capitalist ruling classes to intensify their ongoing War on Dissent and their demonization of anyone opposing them (or contradicting their official narrative) as an “extremist,” a “fascist,” a “Russian agent,” and so on. I’m certainly looking forward to that, personally.

Oh… yeah, and I almost forgot, if you were wondering what you could get me for Christmas, I did some checking, and there appears to be a wide selection of yellow safety vests online for just a couple Euros.

Washington Is Changing The World Order Against Its Own Interests

Any country sufficiently stupid to ally with the US is allied with a dead man walking.

Paul Craig Roberts

Published

on

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts:


The hubris and arrogance of Washington have been at work since the Clinton regime to destroy the power and relevance of the United States.

This website has an international audience. The most asked question from this audience is the world order. There is a realization that Washington’s control might weaken, a development people abroad see as hopeful. They ask me for verification of their hope.

Here is my answer:

The world order has already changed.  China has a larger and more powerful industrial and manufacturing based economy than the US, and China’s potential domestic consumer market is four times larger than that of the US. As economies are consumer based, China’s potential is an economy four times larger than that of the US.

Russia has a far more capable military with weapon systems unmatched by the US. The US is drowning in debt, and the illegal and irresponsible sanctions that Washington tries to impose on others are driving the world’s largest countries away from the use of the US dollar as world reserve currency and away from Western clearance systems such as SWIFT.  The United States already has one foot in the grave.  Any country sufficiently stupid to ally with the US is allied with a dead man walking.

President Eisenhower, a five-star general, warned Americans 57 years ago to no effect that the military/security complex was already a threat to the American people’s ability to control their government. Today the military/security complex is the Government. As Udo Ulfkotte documented in his book, Journalists for Hire: How the CIA buys the News—no you can’t buy a copy unless you can find a used copy in German in a German book store, the CIA has seen to that—journalism independent of official explanations no longer exists in the Western world.

Much of the world does not understand this. Aside from the material interests of Russian and Chinese capitalists, a portion of the youth of both superpowers, and also even in Iran, have succumbed to brainwashing by American propaganda. Gullible beyond belief, they are more loyal to America than they are to their own countries.

The United States itself is extremely unsuccessful, but its propaganda still rules the world. The consequence is that, based on its propagandistic success, Washington thinks it still holds the balance of economic and military power. This is a delusion that is leading Washington to nuclear war.

Considering the hypersonic speed, trajectory changeability and massive power of Russian nuclear weapons, war with Russia will result in nothing whatsoever being left of the US and its vassals, who sold out European peoples for Washington’s money.
