Pompeo on Russia

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

Washington is infested with congressional and administration Russophobes, Pompeo key among them.

In his first address as secretary of state, he lied saying “Russia threatens allies and partners both militarily, as seen through its invasions of Georgia in 2008 and Ukraine in 2014, and through an aggressive campaign to undermine western democratic institutions.”

Truth is polar opposite his above Big Lies and numerous others!

He lied blaming Russia for the March UK Skripal incident it had nothing to do with. He lied claiming “Russian aggression” – nonexistent anywhere, US aggression ongoing in multiple theaters, he failed to address.

He lied accusing Russia of noncompliance “with international law,” a US specialty, not Moscow’s.

Pompeo is a hawkish neoco warrior. He’s no diplomat or peacemaker. He’s a US equivalent of Nazi Germany’s Joachim von Ribbentrop, Hitler’s chief foreign affairs advisor.

During Nuremberg trials, he was convicted and hanged for multiple counts of high crimes against peace – the highest of high crimes.

Pompeo and numerous others in Washington are guilty of the same crimes of war and against humanity. 

As CIA director, he headed its global Mafia hit squad operations, its worldwide black site torture prisons, its diabolical agenda incompatible with values just societies cherish.

He’s militantly anti-Russia, anti-Iran, anti-North Korea, anti-other sovereign independent governments, anti-world peace and stability.

He lied earlier calling Iran “a very dangerous threat to the United States…the world’s largest state sponsor of terror (with) a significant foothold in Syria.”

He lied saying Russia is America’s “enemy,” falsely claiming its operations in Syria aren’t about defeating ISIS.

His July 25 Crimea declaration repeated a litany of long ago discredited Big Lies, saying:

“Russia, through its 2014 invasion of Ukraine and its attempted annexation of Crimea, sought to undermine a bedrock international principle shared by democratic states: that no country can change the borders of another by force.”

Fact: No Russian invasion, aggression or annexation of Crimea occurred, no attempt to “change the borders of another country by force” – a US, NATO, Israeli specialty, not Moscow’s.

Pompeo: Together with its imperial partners, “the United States rejects Russia’s attempted annexation of Crimea and pledges to maintain this policy until Ukraine’s territorial integrity is restored.”

Fact: No portion of Ukrainian territory was annexed or otherwise compromised. Donbass is an autonomous part of the country, its authorities unwilling to accept fascist rule. 

Kiev’s ruling authorities were installed by Washington in the February 2014 coup d’etat, replacing its democratic government, the country transformed into a despotic US vassal state.

Pompeo: “The United States calls on Russia to respect the principles to which it has long claimed to adhere and to end its occupation of Crimea.” 

“As democratic states seek to build a free, just, and prosperous world, we must uphold our commitment to the international principle of sovereign equality and respect the territorial integrity of other states.” 

“Through its actions, Russia has acted in a manner unworthy of a great nation and has chosen to isolate itself from the international community.”

All of the above is pure rubbish. Russia respects democratic values and rule of law principles. America and its rogue partners deplore them. 

Bipartisan neocon hardliners infesting Washington “uphold (their) commitment” to continue pursuing endless wars of aggression and homeland repression for global hegemony – no matter the human cost.
