An analyst says the United States is escalating tensions with Russia to keep the American people “confused, scared and worried” in order to distract their attention from the crimes that Washington is committing around the world.
“The US constantly needs some sort of an enemy or some sort of problem to be going on mostly because they have over 300 million tax slaves in the US and they have to keep them constantly worried and constantly busy so they do not notice just how enslaved they are,” Jeff Berwick, from The Dollar Vigilante told Press TV in an interview on Saturday.
“So they just have to constantly be causing all these problems and they are constantly terrorizing different countries whether it be Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Iran, or Russia as it is right now or North Korea, they just need to constantly be doing these things to first of all keep people in the US always kind of scared and feeling that they are always going to be under attack and secondly just to continue with the military industrial complex which is how pretty much all of the business done in the US today is all war-related,” he added.
The United States has ordered Russia to shutter its consulate in San Francisco and close offices in Washington and New York in response to Moscow’s drastic reduction of US diplomatic personnel in Russia last month.
US special services have also planned to search the Russian consulate in San Francisco and even scour the residences of consulate workers.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has expressed “regret at the escalation of tensions” after the US move, saying Moscow will give a tough response to Washington’s measures aimed at hurting it.
