The New York Times recently wrote about Russia being an outlaw state. Per the Times editorial board, terrible deeds were done by this pariah state. Some observers viewed this as the New York Times setting up the propaganda machine for war with Russia. This would be horrendous, but not unexpected as the mandarins in charge of America have failed to fix their monetary mess. War is usually the salve they use. Russia was deemed an outlaw, which would imply outside the accepted norms and mores of a community, furthermore isolated from the international community. This is wishful thinking but also dangerous thinking.
It is hard to view Russia as isolated, and I have written before on its spreading engagement with nations, especially the deepening ties with China. Russia has been at the vanguard of attempting to assemble a BRICS coalition of sorts, working deeply with Xi's China. When even Japan, securely under America's thumb, reaches out to create deeper ties with Russia, this is a baseless branding. It is hard to argue that a nation is an outlaw state when America's vassal in the far east wants to do business with Russia despite this "outlaw" label. Russia's great crime here is resisting the rule of USG and going a step further by trying to grow the resistance crowd.
The sickening bit is that Putin's misdeeds are all responses to USG provocation. USG orchestrates the overthrow of Ukraine's regime, and Putin responded with some assistance to East Ukrainians and annexing Crimea. USG and allies in the Middle East send weapons, money and aid to jihadis in Syria after performing the same trick in Libya, and when Assad needed help but had pulled back from the brink, Putin responded to his ally. Assad himself used to offer sanctuary to Iraqi insurgents, but that did not stop the likes of Rep. Nancy Pelosi from visiting and shaking hands in a hijab. Who is the first mover in these instances? America and its proxies. If someone were fomenting rebellion and mayhem in Mexico or Canada, we would react.
>Wait<, the cartels do that in Mexico, but luckily USG is friendly with the Sinaloas, so it is okay.
This is all dangerous thinking because America's entire system is geared to elect an obviously impaired elderly woman who has spoken as hawkish as Senator Marco Rubio about Syria and Russia. Clinton wants to send more aid of all types to Syrian rebels (moderate head choppers she assures us) and create a No Fly Zone. She is willing to risk an altercation with the Russians, a nuclear power, over a piss ant nation. It's not her but the interests manipulating her puppet candidacy that want war with Russia.
No one wants global catastrophe except these reckless interests. Instigating a global war is the act of outlaws. Nuremberg was a historical anomaly, but the men and women of USG can find themselves in the docket of such trials or a Truth and Reconciliation series of trials if they push for war.
