Biden Regime Recklessness
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
Hardliners in charge of the Biden regime’s geopolitical agenda showed they have no intention of missing an opportunity to miss an opportunity for peace, stability, and cooperative relations with the world community of nations.
Just the opposite!
From day one one after replacing Trump by brazen election rigging, they’ve gone the other way across the board.
Their extremism risks global conflict in pursuit of their unattainable hegemonic aims.
They risk rupturing relations with China by pushing the envelope for possible conflict with a nation able to hit back hard in self-defense if attacked.
On Tuesday, Russia’s Sputnik News reported that “US and Chinese navies are holding aircraft carrier drills in the waters off China’s coast as Washington postures as standing up to Beijing’s ‘aggression (sic).’ ”
US forces provocatively operate this way worldwide — where they don’t belong.
Last week, interventionist Blinken falsely accused Beijing of “undermining” the “rules-based international order…violating human rights and other commitments (sic).”
The above is how belligerent USA operates at home and abroad worldwide — not China, Russia, or other countries free from its hegemonic control.
The Biden regime continues all-out war on Iran by other means — while pretending to want the landmark JCPOA nuclear deal revived that requires lifting all illegally imposed sanctions its hardliners won’t do.
In short order, they drove a stake through the heart of Russia/US relations — taking them to a new low by recklessly pushing the envelope for possible unthinkable conflict.
Along with its other active war theaters, it elevated Ukraine to perhaps the world’s top hot spot.
Escalated war in Donbass along Russia’s border — orchestrated and pushed by the US — risks drawing its forces into conflict with Ukraine in Europe’s heartland.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov warned US-dominated NATO against “provocati(vely)” deploying troops to Ukraine, adding:
“There is no doubt such a scenario would lead to a further increase in tensions close to Russia’s borders.”
“Of course, this would call for additional measures from the Russian side to ensure its security.”
“Russia is not threatening anyone. It has never threatened anyone.”
“Russia is not a participant” in escalated US-orchestrated war by Kiev against Donbass.
Ukrainian forces are responsible for “multiple” provocations along Russia border.
“(N)obody cancelled the principle of reciprocity. Of course, the Russian side will react in such a way and in a way that best suits our own interests.”
In stark contrast to US-orchestrated belligerence by Ukrainian proxy forces near its border, Moscow is trying to defuse tensions and conflict in Donbass.
In response to provocative US/UK plans to deploy ground-based short-and intermediate-range missiles near Russia’s borders — the latter banned by the INF Treaty the Trump regime destroyed — Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the following:
The aim of these missiles will be all-about “render(ing) (Russian) air defenses ineffective” if US launched aggression on the country occurs.
Colonized Britain partners in Washington’s military adventurism against invented enemies.
According to a Boris Johnson regime press release, it’ll deploy US-made M270 Multiple Launch Rocket Systems (MLRS) to fire US precision strike missiles.
These weapons will have “global deep fires capability,” to neutralize Russia’s long-range air defense systems.
Zakharova explained that Moscow “ha(s) taken note of the Anglo-Saxon military commanders’ focus on targeting purely defensive systems that are protecting Russia from potential armed attacks.”
Deployed US/UK missiles will be able to strike targets up to 800 km away.
What’s planned “reduc(es) the area for a political and diplomatic solution to the post-INF problem and for preventing a serious escalation in the missile sphere.”
“We do not see any constructive response to the Russian initiatives based on a practical proposal to settle the sides’ concerns by adopting mutual moratoriums on the deployment of land-based intermediate- and shorter-range missiles and coordinating mutual measures to verify compliance with them.”
“Russia will have to shift (its) focus increasingly more towards taking military-technical response measures against the arising missile threats.”
Are Biden and Boris Johnson regime hardliners pushing the envelope for conflict with Moscow — on the phony pretext of self-defense against nonexistent Russian aggression?
Are they plotting a similar scenario against China, Iran and other nations free from imperial control.
Will US-orchestrated Kiev aggression on Donbass along Russia’s border spark global conflict?
China earlier warned the US against deploying intermediate-range missiles near its borders.
If this action is taken, its military will “take necessary countermeasures to firmly safeguard its security interests,” a Foreign Ministry statement said.
Before Biden regime hardliners replaced Trump in January, I said the following in an earlier article:
The worst of times ahead may make most Americans yearn for the good old days under Trump compared to the Biden/Harris horror show — now unfolding domestically and abroad.
In January, former congressman Ron Paul slammed what he called “the incoming Biden (regime that’s) chock full of actual purveyors of violent coups” and wars on humanity.
If Biden regime-orchestrated aggression along Russia’s borders threatens its security enough to demand a defensive response, all bets are off about how events may unfold.
