The Russians are absolutely correct on this issue.

The U.S. has not only lied consistently – talking about imagined Iranian threats – but its entire effort here is in the nature of aggression.

It is the kind of aggression psychologists call “passive-aggression,” a condition in which a certain personality plays the role of weak or passive person while actually carefully manipulating every opportunity to attack another.

It is America which for a decade has espoused the terrible concept of pre-emptive strikes against those believed to offer a future threat, so Russia merely is mimicking the concept.

The American missiles clearly are intended as a threat against Russia’s ICBM force.
