Paul Craig Roberts defines rival as “any country (able to defend) its interests or those of its allies against Washington’s hegemon(ic)” ambitions.
America demands unipolar/New World Order dominance. It demands all nations bow to its will, or else! It targets independent ones for regime change. Either by coups, targeted assassinations or wars of aggression.
Obama pursues multiple regime change objectives, look at Iraq, Libya, Syria and Ukraine as prime examples.
Obama through NATO targets independent leaders. They’re not tolerated. They want them ousted. Obama demands subservience. It wants US-NATO friendly stooges serving its interests.
Syria is in the eye of the storm. Iran’s turn awaits. Overthrowing Ukraine’s democratically elected government relates directly to targeting Moscow.
Obama wants control over all former Soviet republics and Warsaw pact countries. It wants them incorporated into NATO.
It wants US bases on Russia’s borders. It wants the entire country of Russia surrounded. It wants long-range multiple nuclear warhead missiles targeting Russia’s heartland. It wants regime change.
Doing so reneges on GHW Bush promising former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev not to encroach “one inch to the east.”
The entire world knows that Washington overthrew the elected Ukrainian government,” Paul Craig Roberts explained.
It knows if Moscow was revanchist, it “would have kept Georgia and reincorporated it within Russia…” It would have done so after it lawlessly invaded South Ossetia.
Russia intervened responsibly. It did so to protect its own citizens. It did it after about 1,700 were ruthlessly murdered in cold blood.
Aggression isn’t when America ravages and destroys other countries. It’s shamelessly called liberation, humanitarian intervention, or responsibility to protect.
Aggression is when Russia acts responsibly. When it protects its own people in harm’s way.
When it supports near Crimean unanimity to return to Russia. When it delivers vitally needed humanitarian aid to Southeastern Ukraine.
When it goes all-out to resolve Ukraine’s conflict responsibly. When it wants Obama’s war on Syria resolved the same way.
Don’t expect New York Times journalism to explain. In mid-September, The Times headlined “Putin Intent on Taking ‘All of Ukraine,’ Premier Says.”
Coup installed prime minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk has no legitimacy whatever. He lied claiming Putin wants “all of Ukraine.”
The Times features this type rubbish regularly. It’s longstanding practice. So is double-standard hypocrisy.
Whatever America does is right. Whatever its invented adversaries do is wrong. US adventurism is OK.
So is destroying nations to save them. Replacing sovereign independent governments with subservient US vassal ones.
Destroying democratic freedoms in the process. Extinguishing them altogether. Glorifying war in the name of peace.
Targeting Russia for regime change. Wanting it balkanized into mini-states for easieer control. Wanting a major rival eliminated. They want the liberal order word wide, massive immigration into Europe and the USA form the 3rd world, they want Christanity and Judaism replaced by 3rd world religious orders. In Russia Christianity in the form of the Russian Orthodox Church flourishes, liberals hate this.
The “news” of Russia’s return to conservatism has hit many observers in the West like the proverbial ton of bricks. The typical response has been to blame the Russian president for steering Russia away from the liberal path, the path of becoming a “normal country” with “Western values.”
Militant liberal Homosexuals hate Russia protects its Children and the traditional family, Russia has banned “GAY” pride parades for 100 years. Anti-Family liberals hate Putin because Russia now has a growing birth rate.(The US & Europe have declining birth rates!)
Liberals hate Putin because he is against Obama radicalizing the Middle East and offered apeaceful resolution to the Syrian crisis overs Obama rush to war.
Globalist hate Russia because they are against a one world government.
