The hatred being vented toward Russia by the Western world may be some
kind of a temporary aberration, but I don’t think so. This non-stop assault on Russia is a horrendously
dangerous thing.The accusations of
wrong-doing by Russia without including Western countries own role in all of it
is never-ending.As far as Russia trying
to kill a double agent on British soil after Russia had already released him
years before after he served time for treason, I don’t believe it.On the eve of the World cup games? Why would
they do that?
I could be wrong but it certainly sounds
as though some sort of a pre-emptive strike on Russia by US-led NATO is being
seriously discussed by the US generals. However, the problem for this scenario is
that Russia (as I understand it) now has a nuclear capability superior to the
US. NATO (of which Canada is a part)
can’t really try to destroy Russia without grave risk of destroying our own
countries and populations.
I also think this flood of
accusations coming from the West against Russia is aimed equally, or even
primarily, at China.Why? The US dollar
has been the predominant settlement currency for oil future contracts. China is the world’s biggest oil consumer and
has just launched their own yuan-back crude oil futures in Shanghai. This means
they don’t have to use US dollars anymore in their oil transactions.They will use their own currency, backed by
gold, instead of US dollars, backed by much of nothing.Which, of course, weakens the US dollar
further and makes the US furious.
The US war hawks will rattle swords
and cheer on Theresa May but unless the new warriors in Trump’s cabinet are
willing to try to wreck the entire world along with their own lives, there
isn’t a dammed thing they can do about it. Except, of course, sling accusations
non-stop both at Russia and China while titillating the public with the frolics
of Donald Trump and Stormy, the porn star.
