Warning Merkel on Russian ‘Invasion’ Intel

Posted by Fredsvenn on September 1, 2014

nuclear war

Almost unnoticed back on May 1 of this year Senator Bob Corker (R) of Tennessee introduced perhaps the most dangerous and most pernicious foreign policy legislation since the days of the Cuban Missile Crisis, fifty-two years ago. Co-sponsored by twenty-six Republican US senators and titled “the Russian Aggression Prevention Act of 2014,”

Bill S.2277 would place the United States in the position of beginning a new and very “hot” Cold War, and, indeed, in all likelihood starting a probable shooting war with Russia. The thoughtless British pledge to “come to the assistance of Poland” in 1939 pales in comparison. This legislation actually aims at war, pushes it to the forefront of American foreign policy.

Such legislation, if adopted, would not only re-start the Cold War, it would place the blame for such an initiation squarely on the shoulders of the American government and those mindless congressional leaders who buy into the belief that the United States has not only the right, but the duty, to impose its ideas of liberal democracy and equality on every country, however big or small, whether they want it or not, across the face of the globe.

Warning Merkel on Russian ‘Invasion’ Intel

Alarmed at the anti-Russian hysteria sweeping Official Washington – and the specter of a new Cold War – U.S. intelligence veterans took the unusual step of sending this Aug. 30 memo to German Chancellor Merkel challenging the reliability of Ukrainian and U.S. media claims about a Russian “invasion.”

“We the undersigned are long-time veterans of U.S. intelligence. We take the unusual step of writing this open letter to you to ensure that you have an opportunity to be briefed on our views prior to the NATO summit on Sept. 4-5.

“You need to know, for example, that accusations of a major Russian “invasion” of Ukraine appear not to be supported by reliable intelligence. Rather, the “intelligence” seems to be of the same dubious, politically “fixed” kind used 12 years ago to “justify” the U.S.-led attack on Iraq.”

“Hopefully, your advisers have reminded you of NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen’s checkered record for credibility. It appears to us that Rasmussen’s speeches continue to be drafted by Washington. This was abundantly clear on the day before the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq when, as Danish Prime Minister, he told his Parliament: “Iraq has weapons of mass destruction. This is not something we just believe. We know.”

Make Money, Not War (ft. Virgin Group Founder Sir Richard Branson)

Russia and the West are locked into geopolitical tit for tat over Ukraine, and with both sides escalating the sanctions game, businesses are suffering. But can businessmen mediate between political leaders to reach a peaceful solution to the conflict? And how helpful are sanctions in achieving that goal? Oksana is joined by Sir Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin Group, to negotiate these issues.
