Just over a year ago (June 28, 2019), Russian President Putin and President Trump met face to face on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan. This dialog and negotiation is exactly what the War Hawks seek to prevent and destroy. Photo: en.kremlin.ru
In a desperate effort to break Republican support for President Trump, and to blunt the efforts of Russian President Putin to organize a summit of leading nations to address the global coronavirus pandemic and the worldwide economic collapse underway, forces committed to maintaining the present dangerously dysfunctional world order have launched their most unhinged attack yet. Using the New York Times (NYT) and the Guardian to lead the assault, anonymous “intelligence sources” claim that the Russians are paying a bounty to Taliban militants to kill American and allied soldiers in Afghanistan. They further claim that Trump has done nothing about this, either because he had not been briefed, or worse, out of “deference” to Putin, thus bringing the matter back to the original theme of Russiagate, that Putin “has something” on President Trump which he is using to control him!
