Russia and America Heading Toward War?
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
US legislation imposing tough new illegal and unjustifiable sanctions on Russia is further proof of irreconcilable differences between both countries.
Moscow pursues world peace, stability, mutual cooperation among all nations, and multi-world polarity.
America seeks unchallenged global dominance, wars of aggression and color revolutions its main strategies.
Talks between both countries accomplish nothing. Russia’s word is its bond. America breaches all agreements it makes.
It wants pro-Western puppet rule replacing sovereign independence everywhere. Despite its good faith efforts, Russia can’t change America’s diabolical agenda. It’s futile trying.
Things seem inevitably heading toward eventual war between both countries – an unthinkable clash between the world’s leading nuclear powers, an act of madness if ordered by America’s deep state, a potential doomsday scenario if launched.
On Friday, Sergey Lavrov and Rex Tillerson spoke by phone. “Russia did all it could to improve relations and showed restraint in response to US provocations,” its Foreign Ministry said.
“However, recent events demonstrated that US politics have been captured by the Russophobic forces that have been pushing Washington toward the path of confrontation.”
Lavrov stressed Moscow wants improved bilateral relations, including mutual cooperation on major international issues – “only…on the basis of equality, mutual respect and a balance of interests.”
Washington wants dominance over all nations, rapprochement with Russia off the table. US flouting of fundamental international laws and diplomatic practices reveals its true agenda.
Moscow’s retaliation against new US sanctions was “long overdue,” Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov explained, calling the measure “completely weird and unacceptable” – unjustifiably justified by fabricated reasons.
Congress, the administration and major media know there was no Russian interference in America’s election, no “Russian aggression” in Ukraine or anywhere else, no hostile Russian actions toward America or any other country.
Sanctions and other anti-Russia actions target its sovereign independence. They represent longstanding US policy to marginalize, weaken, contain and isolate Moscow.
They ultimately seek regime change by any means, war the most likely possibility given Washington’s rage for endless conflicts and belief it can prevail against any adversary even if the homeland is attacked.
Russia’s hope for improved bilateral relations is an unachievable aim. Washington is bent on confrontation.
Legislation imposing new sanctions is the latest shot across the bow – more hostile actions sure to follow. Things seem headed inevitably toward war, America’s final solution to everything.
US National Security Strategy includes first-strike use of nuclear weapons against any adversary, nuclear armed or not – an unparalleled threat to humanity.
The only nation ever to use these weapons in combat affirms a willingness to use them again, instead of initiating efforts to abolish them once and for all.”
How far will America go? How much is it willing to risk to accomplish its diabolical aims?
What can be done to constrain its rage for war before it kills us all? Russia’s best efforts are futile.
The only solution is nonviolent grassroots revolution – transformational change. Scattered reforms won’t work. America’s ruthless system is too debauched to fix.
The alternative is endless wars risking mass annihilation. That’s where things are heading without mass resistance to stop the madness threatening life on earth.
