Anti-American Sentiment Surges in Russia as US Officer Taunts From Perch at Fox

 The story of the US general who said it was time to ‘start killing Russians’ continues

Has cancelled a cruise in the Baltics and says he has bought a ‘polonium detector’…..

……The Russian media didn’t let Mr. Scales off the hook without reaching more general conclusions.

of the papers wrote: “All the meaning of American politics is hidden,
which is based on the unlimited egoism and egocentrism. It turns out
that, according to the US general, to call for mass murder of the
citizens of a particular ethnicity in front of multi-million audience –
that is within the framework of things, it is allowed to him, but to
call him to justice is an attack on western media and freedom
of speech!”

Mr. Scales’ public statement that he had to buy the
polonium detector as a precaution against the evil Russians most likely
already plotting against him—an obvious referral to the mysterious
murder of the ex-KGB Alexander Litvinenko in London in 2006—again hit
the headlines in Russia, adding gasoline to the fire.

“How many
diapers does he use in a day?” asked the representative of the Russian
Investigative Committee Vladimir Markin via Twitter. “And the spring is
still ahead of us!” Vice-Prime Minister in charge of the Russia’s
military-industrial complex Dmitry Rogozin echo—also on Twitter—“He
[ret. Maj. Gen.] is a real cuckoo! Let’s send him a diaper!”

“US general was prescribed diapers” was the least vicious of the newspaper headlines.

knows if the Russians in fact did send Mr. Scales a package of diapers
or if he used his new detector to check it for polonium poisoning upon
its arrival, but definitely the Russians have been on alert for his
every word ever since.

Take my word for it—in Russia people don’t usually pay attention to San Diego Union-Tribune or to the opinions expressed in it—unless the opinion belongs to the retired major-general Robert H. Scales.

The very title of his piece, published on August 15, “The Army is broken,” was music to the ears of Russia’s hawks and America-haters.

On the day after Mr. Scales’ opinion appeared, Russian news media giant RIA Novosti published
a story with the sensational headline, “The General Who Said ‘Kill
Russians’ Complains about the Decline of the US Army.” Shrugging off the
general’s intimate emotions expressed in the piece, the Kremlin media
machine provided a dry summary of Mr. Scales’ outcry.

US army is destroyed for the third time since the mid-20th century—this
time, by the reduction of the army and defense budget cuts by
‘ahistorical and strategically tone-deaf leadership in Washington.’ The
US army is broken by the lack of training and antiquated equipment. Low
morale, alcoholism, hard drug abuse by soldiers, domestic violence and
suicides among US troops led to the decline in ‘military spirit.’ Young
army leaders are voting with their feet.

In other words, implied RIA Novosti,
the US army is not as strong an adversary as it looks. It cannot be
otherwise, since no less a celebrity Russophobe than retired
major-general Robert H. Scales said so, the one who is wanted by Russian
police for calling for the killing of Russian citizens.

There were no mocking Tweets this time, nobody offered to send diapers to America for Mr. Scales.

retired US army general’s story was unfolding in Russia, the US State
Department announced the renewal of its crusade against what it called
“Russian propaganda,” heralding the increase in spending on the program,
including a $500,000 grant to train journalists to fight “Moscow lies”
in the Baltic states alone. If the point is to counter Russian rhetoric,
the State Department might do better to spend its half million keeping
General Scales away from microphones and keyboards.

One-Pager on Latest Developments in Russia (RF Sitrep 20150827)Patrick Armstrong

One of the primal events of Maidan mythology is the “heavenly hundred”. One researcher, Ivan Katchanovski (a Canadian, I’m proud to say) has seriously investigated. His conclusion is that it was a “false flag”. Read here what you won’t see in the WMSM.

OSCE IN DONBASS. The OSCE has now about 600 monitors in the area of
the fighting. The Donbass locals bitterly complain that the monitors do
not blame the Kiev forces for the random shelling of civilian areas (lots of evidence that they do, by the way. One should distinguish, as this AI report does not, between terror shelling and the consequences of fighting.) There have been several protests in Donetsk. I don’t regularly follow the daily SMM reports
but I have noticed that while they occasionally ascribe the fire to the
Kiev side, they usually report the shelling as if it came from an
unknowable location. Their spokesman defends the SMM. However, there is only one possible interpretation of Poroshenko’s assertion that their children will “hole up in basements” and “that is exactly how we will win this war”.

DIDN’T HE SIGN IT? Because Yanukovych’s experts told him the cost would
be US$160 billion – far more than the EU said (buried in this story in Der Spiegel). An underestimate as it turns out.

THE STATE OF UKRAINE. Ukraine just celebrated its independence day. Not a happy experience. A Ukrainian source says, since independence, it has had the worst performing economy in the world. In the first six months of this year it’s dropped 16% year on year. (English summary) Even the US media suspects that new IMF money has been stolen. Eight thousand soldiers and police have defected to the Donbass fighters; 1300 security officers. A US poll shows negligible support for the situation. How many Ukrainians have fled to Russia? Several million: last year Russia had more asylum requests than anywhere. Ukrainian refugees are welcomed in Russia, not so much elsewhere. Crime. Theft. Even the Western media occasionally notices: Demoralised Ukraine troops start to lose faith in Kiev, Kiev forced to fight its own fascist militia and Ukraine Is Too Corrupt for Debt Deal to Work. Disaster.

I’ve lost track of all the “formers” who have criticised the Western
stance on Ukraine/Russia (all of Merkel’s and Hollande’s living
predecessors, I think) but here’s a piece by Dmitriy Babich that sums it up. My take on the lack of forethought by the neocon authors.
