Washington’s Deception Is Aimed at Russia

According to a report on RT, Secretary of State Tillerson has on CBS backed away from his previously reported aggressive rhetoric reported by the presstitutes against Russia and Syria.https://www.rt.com/usa/384142-tillerson-syria-regime-change-isis/

According to the RT report, Tillerson said that Washington’s plan is to defeat ISIS, not to bring regime change to Syria. It is up to the Syrian people, Tillerson reportedly said, to choose their own president. Tillerson said on CBS that “We’ve seen what violent regime change looks like in Libya and the kind of chaos that can be unleashed and indeed the kind of misery that it enacts on its own people,” he said on CBS. “I think we have to learn the lessons of the past,” he emphasized on ABC, adding, “Any time you go on and have a violent change at the top, it is very difficult to create the conditions for stability longer term.”

If the report is correct, it could either be good news or another Washington deception in advance of Tillerson’s visit to Moscow, the purpose of which will be to bring the Russian government into Washington’s orbit and an agreement to replace Assad with an American vassal.

Perhaps the Russian government will keep in mind Tillerson’s revealing statement that the message the US sent with its illegal, war crime, unprovoked attack on Syria “is that the violation of international norms . . . will no longer be tolerated.”

Of course, who is the violator of “international norms.” No one but Washington (and Israel). Washington is the greatest violator of “international norms” in modern history. Washington has invaded Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, organized the destruction of Libya, Somalia, and conducted attacks on Pakistan and Yemen, and organized a coup against the democratically elected government in Ukraine.

Only Washington has a list of crimes this long. And we can add to it Honduras, Brazil, Argentina, and in the works, Venezuela, Ecuador and Bolivia.

If Russia falls into Washington’s trap of deception, Russia will be destroyed.

  1. Don’t write off Trump vs Russia so quickly. He is still the Deal Maven extraordinaire . Premier Xi went to Mar-a Lago and then to Alaska. Why? see https://robertmagill.wordpress.com/2017/04/10/the-art-of-the-deal/

  2. I think you’re right when you say, “If Russia falls into Washington’s trap of deception, Russia will be destroyed.”

    But Putin is the sort who is unlikely to fall into anyone’s trap.

    The rub is that when the U.S. seeks a confrontation the consequences are the same whether one falls into the trap or not…destruction.

  4. Is Trump’s team just erratic and crazy, or does it believe it in the Uncertainty Principle to keep the rest of the world off balance so as to advantage American Power?

    It’s like a boxer constantly moves his body left and right, forward and backward, and sends all sorts of mixed signals so as to have the advantage of the element of surprise.
    This way, the opponent won’t know if the next punch will be a jab, right across, upper cut, left hook, etc. It can be ANYTHING.

    It seems like Trump’s team doesn’t want to seem predictable. It wants to keep others off balance so that US can ‘grab pussy’ when others least expect it.

    Pussy-Grab-Strategy. Grabalism.

  5. Doc Roberts, V V Putin doesn’t need your advice. Since his rise to prominence in 1999, he has negotiated all manner of difficulty and disaster which would have made weaker men, like Donald Trump, give up, give in or die. He is obviously very well advised by those around as well, unlike Donald Trump.
    You were wrong about Trump, as nearly all of us were. Leave President Putin to deal with this buffoon. Ironic as it may seem to many dim-witted Americans, Putin is and will continue to be the West’s best defender.

    Thoughtful comment, that.

    Vlad Putin is one hell of a guy. He demonstrates statesmanship and discerning judgment. In sum, he's got his shit together.

    Does Trump have his shit together? Thus far, the evidence is lacking. . . .
  6. Trump launched an attack on Syria in response to a false flag attack. His entire conduct in office regarding Russia and the Middle East has been a mirror image of his campaign rhetoric. Who cares what Tillerson is saying currently? We know it means nothing in the real world. This deplorable is done with Trump.

  7. Slavic mind and Slavic philosophy. Never advertise and put urself in the oppositions shoes what would they do and r going to do. Measured calculated to whatever event occurs. Different rsposnses go with different events. Slavic people have been quintessential diplomats since Peter the Great.
