LD: The Saker here explains in detail (in over 2000 words) what can be summarized in fewer words. The United States and its Nato allies are so convinced of their military superiority that they are now, like hubristic playground bullies, openly beating the war drums against both Russia and China in the belief that both these countries simply cannot afford to fight back and will have to keep on retreating and capitulating and losing ground. The US and its Allies, however, are tragically wrong about this and will pay the price of their hubris. Because you can push your victims to the wall only so far before they decide that enough is enough.
“Any aggressor should know that retribution will be inevitable and he will be destroyed. And since we will be the victims of his aggression, we will be going to heaven as martyrs. They will simply croak and won’t even have time to repent.”
So Putin has now made it clear that if the US decides to provoke Russia any further, Russia will make sure that every single American is wiped off the face of the earth in swiftest retaliation. Perhaps even a preemptive strike is being planned, making sure that Russia gets in the first blow. In short, America needs to back off right now, or it will get more than a bloody nose — it will get total annihilation. [LD]
