The Real Reason Russia is a Target

Excerpt from technical analyst Clive Maund, www.clivemaund.com

The only thing Russia did was to move into the Crimea, an area smaller than the island of Taiwan, which suited the people there as most are Russian speaking, and the reason they did that was to protect their naval base at Sevastopol after the Western inspired coup in the Ukraine. Apart from that they have done nothing and reports that they are planning to take back parts of Eastern Europe are pure fantasy.

Russia has been subjected to an intensifying and coordinated hate campaign that

has become hysterical in recent days. The politicians engaging in this and NATO etc.

are corrupt unscrupulous opportunistic lying scoundrels who have their own agenda.

A particularly odious example of this is Theresa May, the Prime Minister of

Britain, the toothless lion. Mrs. May, a weak and insipid leader, who looks like she would be more at home pushing a trolley around Safeway, has seized upon the

Russia business as an opportunity to grandstand on the world stage, and level scurrilous and totally ungrounded accusations against Russia in the most insulting manner imaginable, which is a pretty dumb thing to do when you consider that Russia has the capacity to reduce Britain to a smoking ruin in a matter of minutes.

One of the odd and distasteful aspects of this episode is the way that most

Western countries have ganged up on Russia like a bunch of schoolyard thugs who have selected their victim and are enjoying putting the boot in – but they will be laughing on the other side of their faces if they push Russia too far, since it has the power to physically destroy them all, although of course it wouldn’t survive either.

So what’s the agenda – why are they doing this? There are several interlocking reasons. A core reason is that the US Neocons are running out of time to bring to fruition their grand plan, the “Project for the New American Century”, which is a plan for world domination – two countries stand in the way of achieving their dream, Russia and China, and in just a few years China, which is growing rapidly in strength, will overtake the US as the dominant world power.

This means that in order to achieve their objectives, the Neocons have to overcome and subjugate Russia and China as quickly as possible.

Another factor making the situation even more urgent is that debt-wracked Western economies are teetering on the verge of collapse, they have to do this very soon while they still have the power to, and having an enemy means you can deflect blame for the economic turmoil on to them.

Still another factor is that they need an enemy of size, a bogeyman, for the

Military – Industrial complex to justify sucking $1 trillion a year out of hapless US taxpayers, and the little tin pot dictatorship of North Korea just doesn’t cut it.

Although Russia has an impressive military, its economy is much smaller than that of China, so for this reason they have decided to take down Russia before they turn their attention to the ultimate prize – China.

If they succeed in taking down Russia, China will be the next target and their crowning glory. This is why they have the South China Sea lined up as their excuse for a conflict with China, so it’s a shame really that China and Russia have developed hypersonic missiles that can sink aircraft carriers in minutes.

In pursuit of their immediate objective of weakening and eventually subjugating Russia, they have already imposed sanctions on Russia, which had no justification, but they didn’t let that minor detail stop them, and they also crashed the oil price several years ago, in order to reduce Russia’s income, even though this caused a major crisis in the US oil industry.

While these efforts did weaken Russia, they were not enough to turn the people against their beloved leader, Vladimir Putin, one big reason being that he is a Statesman, instead of a corrupt lying self-serving hypocrite like most Western leaders. They have also relentlessly portrayed Russia as an aggressor and a threat in their controlled media, in order to justify in the public mind their preparations for a military assault on it.

The preparations for an assault on Russia go back a long way. A big reason that the Neocons instigated the coup in the Ukraine and installed a puppet government there was to enable their war machine, NATO, to move military equipment and forward missile bases as close to Russia as possible.

Now they are preparing to attack Russia on two fronts – in the eastern Ukraine, what is called the Donbass, and a head on clash in Syria, which they are preparing for by moving forces close to Syria and carriers into the Eastern Med. Etc., and they will possibly attack on a third front – from eastern Europe. Once you know all this the reason for all the anti-Russia hysteria and propaganda becomes clear – they are preparing the gullible public mind for this offensive.

Our view: We don’t necessarily agree with all the opinions expressed above; however there are some important aspects which are similar to what we have said for a long time. It’s food for thought.

However, by now intelligent Americans know that they don’t get the real news in the “news media.” That’s why we watch European networks. It’s amazing to learn about important events around the world never reported in the US media.

It’s always good to have an open mind without preconceived notions. That’s what learning and discovery is all about.

The biggest and most important discoveries have been made by those challenging popular and accepted opinions. And that especially includes the world of politics.
