The US have created a whisper campaign proposing the intent to create a naval blockade around Russia. This would stop oil and energy imports and exports. It will also be a blatant act of war.
Russia has always said that it will only respond when its people, economy and country is placed in mortal danger. The US/UK and its puppet allies seem stupid enough to poke the bear in a place which will backfire on them terminally.
The US considering taking its embargo regime against Russia, which it stupidly misclassifies as ‘sanctions’, and ramping that up into a physical military blockade of Russian ports and underwater pipelines spells disaster.
Western countries have continuously accused Russia its activity in the Middle East is aimed at imposing control over energy resources in the area, yet what is proposed by the USA is precisely that.
It is what the US, Britain and France have been doing since the 1900s. Such jaw dropping hypocrisy seems to be the modus operandi of the Western powers in these heady days of lunacy.
Speaking at an event in Pittsburgh on Friday, US Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said the US Navy could block Russia if necessary to prevent Moscow from controlling power supplies in the Middle East.
Zinke’s recent remarks produced a reaction in Moscow. Russian Senator Aleksei Pushkov commented on the words of the American secretary and opined that “besides being stupid, it is a threat that, if fulfilled, would become a declaration of war, as stipulated by international standards.”
Responding to the question of how the US should deal with Russia and Iran, Zinke further added when questioned as to how the US would deal with this by saying: “There are two ways”.
He then proceeded to explain that there was an economic and a military option.
Last week, Energy Secretary Rick Perry reiterated that sanctions against the Russian pipeline Nord Stream II could still be adopted.
It seems incomprehensiblly stupid to bait a superpower purely to make statements supporting the divine right of one state to wield over the rest of the world. The reality we are witnessing is the utter decrepit neutered state of an empire exhausted at point of delivery. When that empire is in the hands of psychopaths and the criminally insane the whole world needs to look out for the resultant blowback.
All the while the UK government, itself driven into a dead end, seems intent on handing over all the ‘family silver’ to the US as it hurries to send the departing EU member into the chill of the North Sea and Atlantic. Its minister for the armed forces, Gavin Williamson childishly and dangerously rants and threatens a country that has a military that is so way more advanced and could if goaded enough wipe the islands off the map.
Perhaps the financial crisis in the US and the disaster awaiting the UK on Brexit both have the same get out clause in mind. Blow each country to smithereens and head for the bunkers. It would seem the fate within those bunkers is going to be the same as the fate of Adolf Hitler whom both parties seem to enjoy modelling their rule on.
