That's why the Intel agencies have been employed to shape public perceptions on Russia. Their job is to prepare the American people for an escalation of hostilities between the two nuclear-armed superpowers. US power-brokers are determined to intensify the conflict and reverse facts on the ground. (Recent articles by elites at the Council on Foreign Relations and the Brookings Institute reveal that they are as committed to partitioning Syria as ever.) Washington wants to reassert its exceptional role as the uncontested steward of global security and the lone "uni-polar" world power.

That's what this whole "hacking" fiasco is about. The big shots who run the country are trying to strong-arm "the Donald" into carrying their water so the depredations can continue and Central Asia can be transformed into a gigantic Washington-dominated corporate free-trade zone where the Big Money calls the shots and Capital reigns supreme. That's their dream-state, Capitalist Valhalla.

They just need Trump to get-with-the-program so the bloodletting can continue apace.
