Joe Biden is antagonizing Russia and ignoring the dangers that would come from a conflict in Europe. Paul Craig Roberts explains at LewRockwell.com that Biden is too “busy pumping up Big Pharma’s profits with scare hype over the harmless Omicron variant,” to focus on the growing danger in Ukraine. He writes (abridged):
A country without an honest media is blind to its fate. In the US there is no media, only repetition of official narratives. The foreign policy narrative is: Russia Bad. China Bad. Iran bad. That is the extent of US foreign policy.
Any person who wants to improve relations with one of the black hats, as Trump did with Russia, is branded an agent of that country. The US Justice (sic) Department has gone further. Any American who writes for the English language Russian websites, Strategic Culture Foundation and SouthFront, is subject to fines and perhaps prison. I see this as the beginning of branding any American who differs from the narrative as a foreign agent. Historically, as well as in dystopian novels, this is the way explanations are controlled.
The curtailment of information also blinds the government, and this is now happening in Washington to a dangerous extent. Washington overthrew the Ukrainian government in 2014 for the opportunities a Ukrainian puppet state provides to destabilize Russia and her security.
To restore stability, the Kremlin put together the Minsk Agreement, but Washington and its new puppet state have abandoned it. The Kremlin now faces the weaponization of the Ukraine and Washington’s intention, whether tomorrow or in a future year, to incorporate Ukraine into Nato. As the Kremlin sees it, this means nuclear weapons on Russia’s border only a few minutes away from targets.
Russia has made it clear that no such thing will be tolerated, but Washington has continued to ignore the Kremlin’s request to negotiate an end to a destabilizing situation.
Have you heard anything about this from CNN, NPR, the New York Times? Of course not. Is President Biden addressing this extremely serious situation? No, Biden is busy pumping up Big Pharma’s profits with scare hype over the harmless Omicron variant.
