Latest Saker interview. Sobering. Start at 5:06 minutes.
Summary and comment below the fold.
In summary, here is what Saker had to say:
“Very cynical, very pragmatic and… very inhuman wars, whether from the US, Israeli, Turkish, Russian, Iranian or NATO standpoint. Nothing personal: it’s all about making money, protecting one’s interests and positioning one’s country to gain a maximum from the wars for want of attaining stability and peace.
Collateral damage is secondary and… well… humans are replaceable and breed like rats anyway. Don’t expect any emotion or compassion toward any population in the crossfire of money-making and national interests. Don’t expect Russia to support Palestinians, the US to get out of its schizophrenic streak (impossible with seven foreign policies and no cohesive strategy) and things to get better any time soon.
Israel has gone as far it can go against Russia by shooting one of its planes and has been told in no uncertain terms where the red line is: Russia’s interests rest with Iran and Israel won’t be allowed to disrupt them; Hezbollah and Lebanon are irrelevant and won’t cause Russia to intervene if Israel attacks them. Syria is (almost) irrelevant, except as the means for Russia to have an active presence in the Middle-East, although extremely limited.
Russia will go all the way if needed but the US are the loose cannon, with the weakest president it has ever had for want of a solid base supporting him. Trump is isolated like never any US president before him and… he has thrown everyone of his loyal supporters under the bus.
Ukraine is a desperate cause NATO won’t want to get actively involved in while the US continue agitating there. The danger for the world is not Russia or China but the US deep schizophrenia which could cause the blow-up of the planet within seconds.
We are in a worse danger than ever before because Trump cannot have a foreign policy and is not allowed to.”
Phi Beta Iota: President Trump is an enigma. We would normally consider him completely incapacitated by the combination of John Bolton and Jared Kushner, both known agents of a foreign power (Zionist Israel) but people we trust tell us he has a plan for demilitarizing and denuclearizing the Middle East and Benjamin Netanyahu will be popped when the time is right. We hope so.
