What We’re Reading Today
Commentary: Today we argue that World War III has already begun. It began when the US organized an economic attack on Russia in 2014 by imposing economic sanctions, freezing accounts, locking Russia out of the SWIFT payment system and other measures designed to cripple the Russian economy. A parallel action by the US was the embargo on oil exports to Japan in 1940 (Events leading to the attack on Pearl Harbor) that was the primary cause of WWII.
The next stage of WWIII began with the US accusing Russia of hacking various government and Democrat websites. The accusations remain unsupported and we have the recent assertion from Julian Assange that the hacked emails that Wikileaks is releasing did not come from Russian sources (Julian Assange Ends The Suspense: “The Source Of Hacked Emails Is Not Russia”). There is as much speculation that is as valid as the administration assertion, that the attacks came from within the US by members of the establishment that see Hillary as a looming disaster. The parallel for blaming Russia for these hacks and ongoing charges of interfering in the coming election is the strategy the administration used to start the Iraq war in 2003. Colin Powell went before the United Nations and declared that the US had proof that Saddam Husein had weapons of mass destruction (without providing proof, read: Colin Powell’s Infamous U.N. Speech, 10 Years Later: Deceiving Public, Ignoring Whistleblowers Led to War) when in fact they didn’t and the administration new this.
