POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN BY WILLIAM HARRISON IN THE GUARDIAN

“Unable to offer Ukraine a positive alternative to NATO, the Kremlin is resorting to a tactic it knows – threats and bullying”

William Harrison, what an uninformed piece, just cheap propaganda, you’ve offered here.

Threats and bullying?

My God, the United States occupies two countries, daily threatens a third, Iran, and now begins threatening a fourth, Pakistan.

Through the whole period of time since 9/11, American diplomacy has been nothing but brow-beating and threats for countries to join, or at least not actively oppose, its lunatic crusade against beliefs and techniques.

Russia has been quite calm and reasonable through most of this.

Indeed, the expansion of NATO right to Russia’s border is a threatening act. Imagine the American response were Mexico to join a Russian or Chinese alliance?

And NATO is an outdated organization with no genuine purpose from the European point of view. From the American point of view, NATO is merely a way of maintaining American hegemony in Europe, keeping Europe from developing as a genuine competitor and alternative force in foreign affairs.

One rarely reads things that so completely reflect George Orwell’s famous contradictions of tyranny, such as war is peace, as your shabby piece.

It’s actually rather astounding someone would have the arrogance to speak such clap-trap.
