Russia Demonized More Than Ever

January 6, 2019

Editor: The media’s zeal to demonize Russia more today than when Russia was Communist is suspect. Today, Russia has the economic strength of Italy, one lousy aircraft carrier and a military budget less than one-ninth of ours. We lied to them when Germany unified and now have offensive weapons right on the Ukrainian border. Do any one of you remember the Cuban Missile Crisis? Russia has to maintain a cutting edge in weapons technology so we don’t think we can launch a sneak attack on them with acceptable losses. I can only say we are lucky Obama and Hillary did not get us into World War III over Syria. And for what? The only people that benefit from all this saber rattling are Goldman Sachs, the Federal Reserve and the military industrial complex which President Eisenhower warned us about. Joseph DuPont TOWANDA
