Russia’s PM Unloads on Trump
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
Things are more dreadful today than any time in modern memory. Like or dislike him, a US president is held hostage by ruthless neocons infesting Congress and his administration.
He’s opposed by media scoundrels overwhelmingly against him, denigrating whatever he does or doesn’t do relentlessly – an assault on him to continue as long as he remains in office.
He has two choices – go along with the pure evil agenda of the Clintons, Bush/Cheney and Obama, their war on humanity at home and abroad, the interests of Wall Street and war-profiteers, or be removed from office by impeachment or more sinister means.
Odds favor his ouster anyway because he was supposed to lose, not win, last November. The wrong presidential aspirant sits in the oval office, unforgivable in Washington. Winning prevented neocon favorite Hillary’s triumph, the way things were supposed to turn out.
It’s a deplorable situation for him, his few trusted loyalists, mainly family members, for the nation and humanity – hugely harmed by the despicable way Washington operates, a sinkhole of fascist tyranny.
In response to Trump’s signing legislation imposing new illegal sanctions on Russia, however reluctantly, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev blasted him, saying:
“A fully-fledged trade war has been declared on Russia.”
“We will quietly continue our work to develop economy and the social sphere and will be engaged in import substitution, as well as address most important state tasks, counting upon ourselves, first of all.”
“We have learnt to do it in the recent years in the conditions of almost closed financial markets, fear of foreign creditors and investors to bankroll in Russia on pain of sanctions against third parties and countries.”
“It benefitted us in some way, though sanctions are senseless as a whole. We’ll pull through.”
Medvedev minced no words, saying new sanctions dash “hopes for improving our relations with the new US administration.”
Its illegal and irresponsible action “is a declaration of a full-fledged economic war on Russia. Unless a miracle happens,” the sanctions will adversely affect bilateral relations for decades.
“Trump administration has shown its total weakness by handing over executive power to Congress in the most humiliating way.”
“This changes the power balance in US political circles.” The end game is removing Trump from office and pursuing regime change in Russia, possibly by unthinkable nuclear war – humanity’s survival up for grabs if launched.
Moscow must prepare militarily for the worst, knowing how America operates, its rage for war, its diabolical aim for unchallenged global dominance, wanting all sovereign independent states eliminated – mainly Russia and China.
It’s no exaggeration calling today the most perilous time in world history. Where things appear heading should terrify everyone. Unless stopped, we’re all doomed.
