Beating Up on Russia, Syria and Iran


America stokes tensions and fear for planned war.

by Stephen Lendman

Russia is slandered for doing the right thing. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland calls Putin's government "morally bankrupt."

Moscow's gone all out to prevent proxy war on Syria exploding into full-scale conflict. Putin/Medvedev know the potentially catastrophic consequences. Washington vilifies efforts against its global imperial ravaging. Humanity everywhere is targeted.

In September, Moscow was again attacked. At issue was expelling USAID. It's an imperial tool. A Foreign Ministry statement said:

"The decision was taken mainly because the work of the agency's officials far from always responded to the stated goals of development and humanitarian cooperation. We are talking about attempts to influence political processes through its grants."

Indeed so. USAID, NED, NDI, ISI, and other US agencies meddle subversively in the internal affairs of other countries. One way is by interfering in foreign elections. Russia's 2011 State Duma elections were targeted. So was its 2012 presidential one.

Anti-Putin/majority party United Russia protests were organized. Pro-Western self-styled electoral watchdog Golos got USAID and other State Department funding. Its mission is subversion, not impartiality and democracy promotion.
