Anti-Russia Conspiracy: The Shame of Conspiratorial Nations
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
In the mid-to-late 1930s, during Hitler’s remilitarization and occupation of the Rhineland, along with seizing Czechoslovakia and Anschluss takeover of Austria, Britain sought to appease, not punish, him for serious criminal offenses. WW II followed.
Contrast UK policy then to its deplorable treatment of Russia today – waging political and economic war along with Washington, based on fabricated accusations, both countries pressuring 26 others to go along with their hostile agenda.
Here’s the rogue’s gallery of complicit nations, bending to the combined will of America and Britain – in alphabetical order:
Albania, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Spain, Sweden, and Ukraine.
Along with UK, US and NATO expulsions, 152 Russian diplomats so far were given days to leave their posts and return home.
On Friday, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert disgraced herself more than already, saying mass expulsions of Russian diplomats show “testimony of how seriously the world takes Russia’s ongoing global campaign to undermine international peace and stability, to threaten the sovereignty and security of countries worldwide, and to subvert and discredit Western institutions” – a bald-faced lie, an unacceptable affront to a sovereign state.
Responding to a question on what expelled Russians were doing in America, she lied again claiming they were “operating under diplomatic cover,” calling them spies, adding:
“We believe our country is safer by making these Russians go home. We know that they were not here to do good, but rather they could have done something potentially bad.”
Asked “how do we know that,” she ducked the question and follow-up ones.
To improve bilateral relations, Moscow must admit to something it didn’t do, along with ceasing its vital anti-terrorist operations Nauert called “aggressive behavior” – a US specialty.
“We certainly know that Russia is responsible for (the Skripal) attack. That is something that is not in question,” she roared.
Asked for proof backing her accusation, she supplied none, instead saying “we have every reason to believe” Britain.
There’s no reason whatever to accept accusations without evidence backing them. Nothing indicates Russian responsibility for numerous things it’s been falsely accused of.
Including Palestine and the Holy See, there are 195 world nations – most of the world community, 167 countries, unwilling to go with the Novichok hoax, including China, India, Pakistan, Japan, both Koreas, Brazil, South Africa, even Israel.
According to its military intelligence-connected DebkaFILE, over “20 governments are manufacturing and stockpiling the illicit chemical agent” claimed to have poisoned father and daughter Skripal – including Britain and America.
Draw your own conclusions. The Skripal incident occurred on March 4.
Over three weeks later, no evidence suggests Russian involvement in what happened – just baseless accusations with nothing supporting them.
