USrael has only one way of treating Russia
First of all Stephen Lendeman has a good analysis of the latest insult to intelligence coming out of Washington...suggesting that Russia stop hostilities against the terrorists that have been destroying Syria for almost five years. These are the same head-chopping terrorists that Russia has (again) on the ropes. Recent history clearly shows that USrael's signature on an agreement is a guarantee that it will never be followed through on. The warmonger hegemaniacs can't do anything else diplomatically but slap Russia's face...they're like the Three Stooges slapping each other.
Next, from Jim Stone comes a shocking piece of news I haven't seen anywhere else. Here is the quote and I will have my comments to follow:
Not fiction: Putin really did fire all commanders in the Baltic fleet
And the reasons why he fired them are shocking
At first I blew this story off because I did not believe it. Evidently, the U.S./Nato/whoever got enough plants into the Baltic fleet to make its entire command structure, in the eyes of Putin, "unreliable and of divided interest". Translation: They were not following orders of aggression against American forces in the Baltics.
As it turns out, the near-miss fly by incidents that happened earlier this year involving the Russian aircraft and U.S. warships were ordered directly by Putin. Then Naval commanders in the Baltics started defying orders to do so. And Putin was not interested in playing games. So he fired a shocking 50 commanders, which amounted to virtually the entire top command of the Baltic fleet, and replaced them with people who would follow orders. Evidently, when the commanders stopped obeying orders to confront the U.S., Putin saw that as them being infiltrated and of divided interest, so he purged them all.
Quite a hard story to believe, but I am saying it now because it ended up being true. It is being described in the Russian media as a "Stalin style purge", and at the top of this purge were Vice Admiral Viktor Kravchuk and his chief of staff Rear Admiral Sergei Popov. All of this was done because Putin wants a Navy that will act aggressively when told to do so, and FOLLOW ORDERS. If anything can signal the fact that Putin believes an upcoming war with the U.S. is inevitable, this would have to be it. I'll take that prospect seriously now, it is not all just smoke and puff anymore.
Putin firing 50 commanders...if that is, in fact, what happened...is a very risky move. How to create 50 enemies with one blow. Kennedy only fired a few CIA leaders (including Dulles) in critical positions and look where it got him. There have, however, been consistent rumours that there are Western moles in all the Russian institutions...just like there are foreign dual-citizen moles in all the Canadian governmental institutions. You could call this a pandemic of foreign moles...unlike the phony pandemics we're always hearing about from WHO.
But as Jim says...this is yet another indication of how serious the Western provoked threat of WWIII is. I have a theory about how that will all turn out. The video I link below is a microcosm for how a war with Russia will play out for the West. Just consider each FSB/CIA representative of his country as the country itself.
