WASHINGTON HAS BEEN DIRECTING ATTACKS on Russia since the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991. Russia has all those nice natural resources to plunder and Russia also provides a handy threat which is vital to the American (and British) "defence" industries. Washington has been at war with Russia (and with the Soviet Union before it) since 1945. Turning brother against brother — the American speciality — Washington works by destabilising countries on Russia's periphery and turning them against Russia as well as by supporting fifth columns inside the Russian Federation itself and training death squads to infiltrate Russia, the Donbass and Crimea for sabotage and assassinations. Washington risks nuclear war by provoking Russia (which is more than capable of defending itself) by doing things Washington would find intolerable if they were done to the United States. The "Monroe Doctrine" effectively proclaims American ownership of North and South America as well as the oceans that surround these continents. Now Washington claims the South China Sea is vital to American interests. Washington believes it owns the world. Such Hutzpah! -ed
CHECHNYA: THE TRUTH
The US and its Western allies will use any opportunity to harm Russia, Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov told RT. He believes the rise of terrorism in Syria was similar to what happened to his native Chechnya two decades ago.
“The West, Europe do not want to help anyone. The important thing for them is to use every resource against Russia. They want to see us kneeling before them,” Kadyrov said in an exclusive interview with RT’s Arabic channel.
“This will never happen,” he added.
The Chechen Republic in southern Russia was the scene of two military campaigns in the 1990s and early 2000s. Ramzan Kadyrov said his father’s choice to pledge his loyalty to Moscow was the choice of the Chechen people.
“[Ramzan Kadyrov's father Akhmad] said: if I am the leader of the republic, you let the Chechen people have its word. If the people say that they want to be part of Russia, I will agree to that too. If they say against it, so will I. That was the arrangement. And the people said they want to live as part of Russia,” he said.
Kadyrov reiterated his loyalty to Moscow, both as representative of the Chechen people and as a devout Muslim.
“My people have entrusted me to serve in good faith. And my religion also obliges me to be loyal to the commander-in-chief. As long as this country and this president allow you to build mosques and pray, your duty is to die for this president,” Kadyrov said.
