In his article, The Outlook for the New Year, he explains the reckless and warmongering attitude of Washington; how the US is demonizing Russia with false charges, and that this is taking the world to the brink of a nuclear war – a war that threatens us all. To quote extracts:
“Washington’s reckless aggressive policy against Russia has resurrected the nuclear arms race.
Washington’s demonization of Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi, and Assad were preludes to military attacks on Iraq, Libya, and Syria. In view of these precedents, it is reasonable to regard Washington’s demonization of Vladimir Putin as a prelude to military action.
As the Bush/Obama regimes dismantled the safeguards put in place in order to minimize the risk of nuclear war, no protests came from the American public or the media.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has stated publicly that Russia has learned that diplomacy with Europe is pointless, because European politicians represent Washington’s interest, not Europe’s.
Washington is also conducting economic and political warfare against Russia, attempting to destabilize the economy with economic sanctions and attacks on the ruble.
… the Russian and Chinese governments have decided to unify their economies into one and to conjoin their military commands.
In my view, Russia and China owe it to the world to prevent the nuclear war intended by the neoconservatives simply by replying in kind to Washington’s economic warfare. Russia and China hold all the cards. Not Washington.” Full article.
But how does this affect Australia? If the US goes to war – do we automatically follow?
I interviewed Former Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser last year about his book “Dangerous Allies”. He wrote that our alliance with the USA could be detrimental to Australia’s interest and survival. We are tied to the politics of the US, yet dependent on our trade relationships with China.
My correspondence with the Foreign Minister’s offices over MH17 confirmed to me that Canberra follows and ‘parrots’ Washington’s script. So, it might be a challenging year for Tony Abbott and Julie Bishop if Washington and NATO continue their ‘aggression’ against Russia – when Russia and China have now become ‘partners’.
Below is PART 4 of the Malcolm Fraser Interview – where he discusses a hypothetical conflict between China and the US – and how this would automatically draw Australia into the conflict. I also asked how we would we extricate ourselves from being military ‘servants’ to the US. (Filmed Oct 2014)
To add a light touch to a very serious article by Roberts, I have re-post my (subtitled) satirical clip of PM Tony Abbott addressing the leaders of the G20 late last year.
