Evil Russia Strikes Again!
Why are a million protestors out in the streets in Chile?
Could they have legitimate grievances and minds of their own?
Nope. It's all the doings of Putin.
A senior State Department official on October 31 said there were "clear indications" people were taking advantage of the unrest and "skewing it through the use and abuse of social media, trolling."
"We have seen indications of Russian activity supporting this negative course of the debate," the official said.
The official added that Moscow has been stepping up its influence in South America, with "very little of it positive."
"They seem to prefer a region divided and they seem to prefer democratic debate mired in conflict, which is unfortunate," he said.
It's perfectly OK for the same people who recently used the Monroe Doctrine as a justification for foreign policy, to lecture Russia over democracy in the Western Hemisphere.
The U.S. would never meddle in other countries.
Russia on Friday accused the U.S. Embassy of having meddled in Russia’s internal affairs when it published a map online showing the route of an unauthorised anti-government protest earlier this month.
Hundreds of thousands of Ecuadorians were also recently under the influence of Putin.
After all, it's simply unimaginable that so many working class people could oppose neoliberalism. So it must be Putin!
Meanwhile, Putin continues with his evil plan of supplying Germany with cheap gas.
After months of delays, Denmark’s energy agency announced Wednesday that it had given the green light to allow Nord Stream 2 — an undersea pipeline that will allow Russia to bypass Ukraine when delivering gas to Europe — to build its pipes in Danish waters.
The decision comes as a blow to U.S. efforts to prevent the completion of the Russian-led project, after repeated warnings it will increase European dependence on Russian energy.
“I would be surprised if the U.S. does not roll out sanctions on things related to Nord Stream as they are eager to get a foothold in the European gas market via LNG (liquefied natural gas) exports,” Ash added in a research note.
Cheap gas? What's more evil than that?
We should roll out more sanctions pronto. That'll work for sure.
