The study examines “nonviolent, cost-imposing options” that the US and its allies could employ to weaken Russia’s economy, military and government structures — and was conducted by the RAND Arroyo Center —  the US Army’s federally funded research arm.

While US officials and mainstream media fret constantly about vague and unverified claims of Russian “meddling,” “interference” and efforts to “sow discord” in US society, the RAND report openly details a shameless plot to drum up social discontent and societal divisions – in Russia.

The report says Russia suffers from “deep seated” but “exaggerated” anxieties about the possibility of “Western-inspired regime change.” Evidently the authors didn’t recognize the irony of calling those concerns “exaggerated” in a document dedicated to describing specific ways to do just that.

What an incredible mind set that the efforts of humanity should be devoted in the main to domination of others. Is it our destiny to destroy ourselves?

Perhaps the Russians should issue an ultimatum to the west, that unless the west within 4 hours begin to move from eastern European NATO infested countries and within 12 hours move from the land mass of all of Europe, the Russians will end the world with the aptly western named Satan II BOMB, starting with wherever the bastard western elites are holed up quickly followed by the same for Europe.

As Putin has said, what is the world without Russia? This reality is done for. Why prolong it? Either the west will capitulate and STFU for good or someone other than a united peoples revolution finishes what the a**hole hegemon has started and continue to foment...death and destruction for money.

Did the Rand Corporation also come up with a plan for a post-destabilized Russia? Of course not. It is all trial and error and wtf, nobody thinks about what will happen with all the dispersed nuclear bombs, etc.

How will Europe feel about getting millions of refugees from Russia? Russia has over a 186 different ethnic groups. Does Europe want them?

Europe also has important trade relations with Russia---even after sanctions. Germany had a record year for investments in Russia. Europe is tired of having to bear the cost of US failed policies.

'Maddening' should be an option on our 'rate this' chart. The world would be a far better place without the US and we, the people, would be far better off without Trump. Our taxes haven't even been filed because the accountant is still trying to figure out the present tax laws. I have 75 thousand dollars in real estate losses and there'll most likely be limits on how much I can write off while Drumpf is merrily on his way to bankrupt the country, an endeavor he mastered in managing his own affairs. Increasing the military budget? Do we have any decent values any more? How can we destabilize Russia? Who should we invade next? What a sh**y value system. What a sh**y president.

Interesting that in order to understand what our government is doing, we need to listen to what our "renewed enemy's" at RT are reporting. This didn't appear on other US news sources apparently, but it's US News!

If we flip the names in this report, the US would be holding it up as "The Smoking Gun", iron clad proof of diabolical Russian meddling in our society.

The same would go for a Russian who was puzzled by the continuing US claims of their government interfering with our elections. Russian citizens would need to check out our news sites to hear anything other their news media denials. (I've not seen hard evidence, it's all gossip so far.)

Freedom of speech needs be applied worldwide, for safety's reasons. Otherwise, each citizen can only hear what's said inside it's own box. Our worlds got bigger.

I highly recommend RT, which I get much major news from. Ditto Al Jazerra when I have time.

Brian,


I agree. But I'm distracted by your picture. Please tell me the significance of that pot you are holding.

Thanks.


Jerry

I had thrown that vase long before building a kiln to fire it. That it survived tropical rains stored in a thatched roof hut for years (in plastic wrap) made me happy. It is unfired still in the photo, Mexican "kangaroo" mice ate on the base a little.

It's now one of my favorite pots, I like classical forms. Your the first to ask. Thanks!
