U.S. versus Russia War: Top Russian Politics Scolar Stephen Cohen Tells The Truth: (image source)
We have been writing about the growing diplomatic crisis between the USA and Russia for some time, since the Obama Administration backed terrorist forces trying to overthrow the Assad regime in Syria in fact. Washington seriously underestimated Assad's ability to resist an onslaught by well armed, well trained guerillas however, while Vladimir Putin thwarted American plans to bomb the Syrian government out of office and that conflict still goes on.
Late in 2013 the focus shifted to Ukraine when riots and what was presented by western
propaganda agencies news media as a spontaneous uprising against a corrupt government. By the summer of 2014 Ukraine was being torn apart by civil conflict as the neo Nazi government installed by the USA, NATO and the EU in Kiev waged war on ethnic Russians in east Ukraine. Western propaganda agencies news media turned the outrage dial up to eleven as they tried to persuade citizens that Russia was the villain and it was Putin who wanted war.
Fortunately people who care about the truth now have alternative media to turn to for a balancing view of events, and the overwhelming wave of public opinion in support of war the Washington spin doctors had expected did not materialise.
Since then the US Government, enthusiastically led by its rent - boy President has continued with the provocation. Things are changing however as even government advisers and people mainstream media, concerned at the increased likelihood of war, are starting to talk about what is really going on.
When Stephen F. Cohen an internationally respected scholar of Russia, releases a video in which he acknowledges that "for the first time in my long career (I began in this field in the 1960s), I think the possibility of war with Russia is real,” (1:35 into the video linked below). Cohen unequivocally puts the blame for this deterioration in international relations on the U.S. leadership, describing the current situation as “possibly a fateful turning-point in history.” He also says “it could be the beginning of the end of the so-called trans-Atlantic alliance."
He's certainly correct there, while the British Political establishment remains loyal to the US, France, Germany and other EU nations are distancing themselves from Washington's aggressive posturing.
