Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Blasts Washington
by Stephen Lendman
Washington is ruled by power-crazed neocons seeking unchallenged dominion over planet earth, its resources, populations, outer space, and ocean depths with all potential rivals eliminated.
Strategy entails aggressive war without mercy when other methods fail. Russia and China most of all are targeted for regime change - America’s two main rivals.
Both want a world at peace, not devastated by the ravages of war. They know dark US intentions. They’re proudly independent - not about to roll over for Washington, nor should they.
Last December, Putin said adversaries “will always try to chain the bear. And once it’s chained, they’ll try to rip out its teeth and claws.” Russia wants cooperative relations with all nations. It’s not about to become a US satellite.
Sergey Lavrov commented earlier on 2014 events - saying relations with Western countries "reached the point (where) goodwill gestures (don't) produce required results."
Washington is a world-class bully, a global menace. It’s mindless of other nations’ sovereign rights. “We have repeatedly stressed that attempts to speak to Russia using the language of ultimatums is totally unacceptable and will yield no results," Lavrov stressed.
Washington turns a blind eye and deaf ear to anything opposing its quest for world dominance. It spurns mutual cooperation - choosing confrontation instead.
No one ever defeated Russia - not Napoleon, Hitler or other would-be conquerors. America won’t fare better if it tries.
Increasing US-dominated NATO’s Eastern European expansion, its provocative military exercises near Russia’s borders, and so-called missile defense intended entirely for offense are hugely destabilizing strategies risking direct confrontation - a possible prelude to nuclear war.
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said Washington “make(s) up (feeble) excuses” to install missiles in Eastern Europe aimed at “Russian territory.”
“The US administration is making up artificial excuses to justify their decision - made under the influence of other motives - to continue the creation of a missile defense system in Europe and increase the pace of work.”
“We don’t see any reasons (to pursue it), especially (at) such a rapid pace and with clear ‘projection’ on Russian territory” - reckless aggressive action.
Moscow diplomats keep stressing this to their US counterparts in vain. Russia can’t imagine using intermediate ballistic missiles against European territory - short of the madness of nuclear war.
Ryabkov sees no reason to negotiate with America on nuclear disarmament when it’s hellbent to upgrade its arsenal, deploy weapons no one should tolerate near Russia’s borders, and potentially use them preemptively.
“(W)e won’t wait for the outcome of US presidential elections (next year), but for the moment of understanding and appreciation of the US that the issues of nuclear disarmament, the reduction in this sphere, can’t and shouldn’t be considered in isolation from the whole range of other factors that affect strategic stability” - Washington seems determined to undermine, Ryabkov said.
Putin, Lavrov, Ryabkov and other Russian officials call Washington’s increasingly provocative actions hugely destabilizing. They threaten world peace.
They risk the unthinkable - possible nuclear war able to end life on earth. Only lunatics would dare act this recklessly. They infest Washington.
