Russian Intervention Looming as US pushes new Cold War

21 04 2014

“There are more and more calls to Russia for rescue from this lawlessness. That puts us in an extremely complicated situation.”  So says the very savvy Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, today, a few days after the very savvy Russian President, Vladimir Putin, spent 4 hours answering questions during which he mentioned that Ukraine is “New Russia” and Russia has a “right” to intervene if necessary.

Adds Lavrov today, “Those who are deliberately trying to trigger a civil war, obviously hoping to provoke a big, serious, bloody conflict, are engaging in a criminal policy. And we will not only condemn but also stop it…   We are a big, independent power which knows what we want.  Attempts to isolate Russia have absolutely no prospects.”

This comes just  a day after a New York Times front-page Sunday article that sums up Washington’s new Cold War thinking thus:

“Just as the United States resolved in the aftermath of World War II to counter the Soviet Union and its global ambitions, Mr. Obama is focused on isolating President Vladimir V. Putin’s Russia by cutting off its economic and political ties to the outside world, limiting its expansionist ambitions in its own neighborhood and effectively making it a pariah state.”

Meanwhile the Americans are stepping up their involvements in Syria as well as Ukraine with escalating arms and clandestine CIA interventions.
