It would seem that Russo-US relations are souring, and this shouldn’t be surprising.
First, The Democrats have blamed Hillary Clinton’s lose on Russian interference largely through Guccifer 2.0 and WikiLeaks. According to the information available, this largely stems from Russia’s documents of effectively initially ‘Anyone but Hillary Clinton’. This can be found here https://www.yahoo.com/tech/u-inquiries-russian-election-hacking-three-fbi-probes-181136552.html
According to the link, the probe is focused on three investigations:
“The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation is pursuing at least three separate probes relating to alleged Russian hacking of the U.S. presidential elections…”
“The FBI’s Pittsburgh field office, which runs many cyber security investigations, is trying to identify the people behind breaches of the Democratic National Committee’s computer systems”
“Meanwhile the bureau’s San Francisco office is trying to identify the people who called themselves “Guccifer 2” and posted emails stolen from Clinton campaign manager John Podesta’s account”
“This counterintelligence inquiry includes but is not limited to examination of financial transactions by Russian individuals and companies who are believed to have links to Trump associates. The transactions under scrutiny involve investments by Russians in overseas entities that appear to have been undertaken through middlemen and front companies, two people briefed on the probe said.”
Second, Progressive Democrats and Progressive Republicans are doubling down on Arabian Alliance leveraged through OPEC of US Foreign Policy in the Middle East that explicitly states Arabian Alliance ambitions to dominate the Middle East largely led by Saudi Arabia. Often omitted here is that the US Dollar’s world’s reserve currency status is strongly dependent on OPEC Treaty being enforced, and China has been courting Saudi Arabia since 2011 in dropping the US Dollar in denominated trade that has already declined to 35% demand that enables Keynesian Economics or otherwise centrally deficit to debt spending.
Third, the Progressive Democrats and Republicans are doubling down on Ukraine, Syria, Iran, and North Korea.
Now, lets examine this from a diplomatic history and balance of power geopolitics assessment:
First, WikiLeaks was one of the main groups who exposed W. Bush’s enhanced interrogations and Guantanamo Bay Prison Detainee treatments whose groups were brushed off after they exposed Obama’s public position was opposed to his private position exposing treatment didn’t improve but worsened, and ‘Gitmo’ is now a equal opportunity detainment center. I’m not as familiar with Guccifer 2.0, so I’ll leave that open ended until I have a lot more information.
Second, OPEC Treaty is the catalyst to the ‘war for oil’ and ‘Dollar Hegemony’ assertions as old school measurements estimates deficit to debt spending accounts for over 80% of GDP translating to requiring deficit to debt spending resulting in some form of growth percentage to keep from crossing the Historian estimated point of no return of 93% of GDP.
Let me break this down for you. The US GDP is over 80% dependent on deficit to debt spending that ties to making the Arabian Alliance who advocates regime change for Arabian Alliance dominance against Israel, Syria, and Iran. The Middle East is parallel to the Cuban Missile Crisis exposing the US’s underbelly to Russia’s underbelly as well as contains China in the west.
To put it point blank, since the US Dollar is the world’s reserve currency status, it’s currency war is automatically a trade war, and currency and trade wars are a result of shifting of global balance of power. This is why historically currency wars leads to trade wars, and trade wars leading to arms races that result in war. It’s truly shifting global balance of power being decisively shifted through conflict.
Third, we’re presently not at war with either Russia or China; therefore, diplomatic history states espionage’s focus is on the long-term aka strategic benefits rather than short-term aka tactical benefits such as increasing replenishment rates through sabotage of manufacturing-production capacities.
To translate, the objective is clearly subversion:
1). The Russian interference qualifies as an attack on the author rather than the content such as the information contained within the leaks via Guccifer 2.0 and WikiLeaks involving Clinton’s corruption.
2). The Traditional US Foreign Policy isn’t designed for the benefit of the US populace but rather the Arabian Alliance whose leverage through OPEC is increased by dependency on deficit to debt spending to inflate GDP by over 80% of GDP.
3). Pressures the Trump administration into catalyzing a war with Russo-Sino that threatens to escalate into NATO V BRICS or otherwise the ‘Old World V New World’ that according to the War College is a lose-lose proposition given the US Military focus on Unconventional Warfare.
Food for thought, if Putin is a ruthless expansionist like the Soviets were, the last person Putin or any foreign expansionist of the ‘Developing BRICS’ would want is a President who will shift US Military focus from unconventional warfare back to conventional warfare as unconventional warfare is centrally regional focused par to ‘Occupational Force Operations’. This would mean documents of Russians stating initially ‘Anyone but Hillary Clinton’ falls under reverse psychology.
Clinton represented the status-quo and a deeply corrupt one at that. The US Military would remain focused on unconventional warfare leaving Europe practically on its own in the event of major warfare leading to the numerical advantage of replenishment rates squarely on Russia and China whose strategic advantage is forcing a multiple regional war stretching three or more continents that is the generic definition of a world war.
The next best thing is to cripple the nation in divide and conquer tactics that leads to revolution or civil war. Progressive Democrats and Republicans have been doubling down precisely on this particular powder keg.
As far as food for thought goes, it is interesting Trump’s overall actions swings both ways, and this begs the question if push comes to shove to which direction he ultimately swings towards. Unfortunately, Clinton-Obama supporters make shifting through Trump’s actions rather interesting given leaks of possible actions versus actual actions.
